Boo.

*Sorry for the Blurry Pic* 

As a child I was never allowed to celebrate Halloween. The underlying elements of “witchcraft” and “Demonic elements” did not sit well with my folks. So my childhood was filled with Harvest Festivals that took place at my local church. Now that I’m in college I’ve taken off the chains.

This Halloween was especially celebratory because one of my closest friends turned 2-1!!! Go Big or Go Home. Check out a few of my costumes below. From Serena Van Der Woodsen to Waldo To a Flapper to ‘Yonce. My costume array was filled with a lot of variety. We went to parties, bars, and a event at the Mansion. All in all it was a great experience. I think costumes are fun when they are clever and witty as opposed to overtly sexual. I’m not judging people for going the more revealing route but it was cold!

Which look was your favorite? Until next year …
Ciao Bella. 

Halloween

Happy Halloween. Have a LaffyTaffy Moment. Shout-out to all the folks that like the Banana flavored LaffyTaffy. I’m actually glad that most people don’t like them… More for me!

Here’s the best part. I know most of y’all were waiting for me to say the jokes found on the LaffyTaffy.

Why did the potato go to France? ((Because he wanted to be a french fry)

(Sidenote: I did not laugh nor chuckle at either of these two dry jokes -_-)

What is your favorite halloween candy? Comment Below…

Ciao Bella.

Embassy Row.

Is one ever too old to Trick-or-Treat? Probably so… We have just enough “cool” to still pull it off.

So there are a bagillion embassies in D.C so they have this thing where they when you visit an open Embassy they will give you candy. Sometime the candy is native to that embassy’s country or sometimes it is just regular candy. Fun fact: An embassy is technically on the given country’s soil. So if I were at the United Kingdom Embassy, I could drink alcohol because the drinking age is only 18 vs. 21 here. I’m sure there are some stipulations but… those are the facts. 

I got around 6 pieces of candy. I’m not saying this was a whole bunch of candy but it was just fun to explore DC. And since I was never allowed to trick-or-treat as a kid (Christian Nigerians Parent’s constant fear of evil “witch craft”) So I dressed up as a “greek goddess” but I accept people’s guesses of Cleopatra.  I got a lot of compliments of my face make-up. I was creeping (only on Facebook) perusing  on my friend’s tumblr, (Hey Girl!) and she had this gorgeous photo of gold eyeliner on top of black liner. So I copied that look for my outfit. (Don’t look at my eyebrows. They need some work)

Gypsy & Kim Possible.

Embassy Row was just one of those things you do as a freshmen. It’s weird to me, when you ask an upper class man ‘what’s Midnight Madness like’ or ‘how is Trick-Or-Treatin on Embassy Row’? Then they reply with, “oh I’ve never done it”. It’s so lame. It’s like a mental check list, “Things to DO as a Freshmen”. I don’t foresee myself going to Embassy Row again but it was fun and that’s that.
