It’s come to that magical time of year where we buy heaps of candy and hand it out to each other and not the neighbourhood kids because we’re the witches of our area.
We hope you enjoyed Halloween month! We’re going to go on a little two week hiatus to tie up some loose ends before the end of the year so we should be back mid-November but to keep up to date, make sure you follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Before we go we’ll leave you with some glow-in-the-dark drinks!
The hardest thing to acquire is most likely the black light bulb and a light source to put it in, thankfully Bunnings had one that fit a lamp we had in the house. Next, you need tonic water that has quinine in it as that’s what gives tonic water its glow (also doesn’t hurt to check to see what is the best tonic water out there like this bartending site I went to see what to get).
After that, you just get something for flavouring which can be fruit or a sachet.
I decided for photography purposes to keep flavouring out but put some pomegranate arils to make it look cool along with our super-cute Ghostface ice cubes!
I’m so happy with how they turned out! While finding a lightbulb to fit a light source might not make it the easiest and cheapest thing to do, it definitely makes things fun- and I say this after The Evil Assistant and I stared at all the blackheads we had on our face!
So I hope you enjoy the last little remnants of Halloween, we hope to be back in two weeks, until then use sunscreen and stay safe!
For today’s Halloween post … we’re cheating. Well, let’s not call it cheating; we’re going to be upgrading a German classic treat into a cutie Halloweenie treat!
Great save by me yet again.
This Halloween Treat Transformation can be done with prepackaged biscuits like Twirls, Caramello Koalas, White Chocolate fingers, or treats you might usually make like White Christmas chocolates, cookies, Rice Krispie balls or bars and white chocolate pretzels.
The cookie I’m going to be Halloweening is a ginger spice cookie/biscuit called pfeffernüsse. This German treat was something that reminds me of my nanna, who would always have them on hand when my sister and I went to visit her.
I’m going to make a conscious effort this year to give you some Halloween-themed posts! To start it off I’m going to share my mum’s recipe for chocolate spiders. My sister and I loved these as kids and if tomorrow mum called and said she made these, we’d probably rush over there in two seconds.
It’s true, mums make the best foods.
Let’s fly up to Sweden. Dip our toe in the in the wonderland of Scandinavia by going to our first stop Stockholm, Sweden’s capital.
Take me to see how the creative and Eurovision royalty excel in everything from the arts to treating men and women like actual equals!
Adelaide has a problem; it’s boring. Well, it’s always touted as just that. Searching the term always brings up some fun results and even one of the major radio stations back in the day, Triple J, tried to help turn it around with an “Adelaide: It’s Okay!” campaign that was hilarious and tried very hard to help Adelaide with its boring label.
It also has that “serial killer capital” label hanging around its head that even Dexter Morgan himself, Michael C. Hall, shot a promo stating it.
A place can’t be boring and an (alleged) serial killer paradise though, can it? Only if it’s so boring that’s why people are going bananas and offing each other.
Such a beautiful place to strangle someone.
I’ve been a few times to Adelaide and come back with different stories and experiences, and while my time there was only fleeting, I hope that if you do find yourself in The City Of Churches that my handy guide will help you around.
I am someone that needs to snack, trust me when I say I love a good meal, but when it’s just me here with the cat, trying to get stuff done, I’d rather have something I can grab out of the kitchen and shove into my mouth.
