10 Things To Do On Halloween!

Hey cupcakes! Halloween is almost here!!! :D I love fall time, so naturally Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! Are you and your friends stuck on what to do for Halloween? Here are some ideas:

1. Go trick-or-treating! - No matter how old you are, trick-or-treating can still be super fun! Plus, free candy is great :P

2. Go to a Haunted House - If you love being scared, find a haunted house, corn maze, etc. in your town! Happy Haunting!

3. Throw a costume party - If you want some friends over, throw a super fun costume party! Play spooky games, eat lots of food, and have a Best Costume award!

4. Bake some spooky treats with your friends - From awesome cupcakes to decorated cookies, there are so many great foods you can make for Halloween!

5. Host a Murder Mystery party! - This would be so much fun with a small group of friends! Purchase a story line online, or write your own!

6. Watch a scary movie (or have a movie marathon!) - Whether this is with your significant other or your family, scary movies are perfect for Halloween!

7. Go to a Halloween dance - Many towns will have Halloween dances or balls on this spooktacular night! Enjoy them!

8. Go to a local event! - Many towns and cities have fun events on Halloween! From music to food it would be super fun to make a G.N.O. out of it! ;)

9. Check out the "haunted" places around where you live - Many towns boast haunted buildings, churches, or theaters so do some research! Find the creepiest legends nearby and go see if they are true! :P

10. Have a haunted scavenger hunt - Mix together trick-or-treating and a haunted house with a fun scavenger hunt!

Movie Review: Fast Girls

Release date: 15 June 2012
Hey cupcakes! Today I have another movie review for you all! This movie is a few years old, and the first time I saw it was on the plane ride to the UK for a family vacation. Recently, I found it on Netflix and because I remembered I loved it so much, I decided to watch it again.

I totally forgot how amazing this movie is!!!!!!! The whole plot is focused on female track runners from Great Britain, and I personally loved it even though I really don't like sports :P Plus, Lily James is in it, and she is so pretty! :) The suspense is awesome during the races, and the ending makes me tear up every time! There are some humorous parts, some serious moments, but this movie is definitely a hit! Parents, there are a few swear words but that is all. If you have Netflix, spend an hour and a half watching this movie!!!!!! I guarantee you will LOVE it!

My Experience: Kurios Cirque du Soleil

Hey cupcakes! Today I will be doing another experience post! :) This summer, I went to see Cirque du Soleil in Chicago! The performance was Kurios Cabinet Des Curiosites...... IT WAS AMAZING!
Now, I have been to two other Cirque du Soleil performances, and I have loved the experience every time! The show is in a tent (which makes it so so sooo much awesomer!), and this one was set up in the parking lot of the United Center. An adult ticket was $89 (I don't know if all the show pricing are the same), but it was totally worth the price! You also have to pay for parking, but the walk to the tent was literally less than 100 meters, so it was definitely worth it. :) To get into the show, you walk through a cool gate
and then get your ticket scanned! You then enter a large tent with food, drinks, souvenirs, etc. There are also bathrooms that are in trailers which is really sweet! I love the whole circus feel to it all <3
When you go to the inner tent to get to your seats, it looks like you went into an actual theater! The seats are quite comfortable! When the clock turned to 11:11 on the stage, Kurios began! :D
The awesome stage! :D
I personally loved this show! It was steam punk themed (which I did not know until I got there) and that in itself made the show awesome!
The costumes, makeup, and lights are all outstanding... The performance itself is mind blowing but those added features really make this show amazing! Many people think it is just a circus but IT IS NOT! There are no animals, or clowns, or silly things you would see at a regular circus. I don't want to ruin any of the acts but there are acrobats, trampolines, chair balancing, contortionists, comedians, and so many other great things! They take blah circus and make it a million times more stunt worthy and awesome! My favorite was the chair balancing act because the guy did some amazing stuff in freakin' khaki pants! :O
The show was 2 hours and 10 minutes long (with a 25 minute intermission), and not a single act was bad! :) I really recommend going to see Kurios (or any Cirque du Soleil performance!)!!!!! It was a great evening, and I hope to see another soon!

4 Ways to Rock an Aztec Print

4 Ways to Rock an Aztec Print
Hey cupcakes! I have another fashion collage today for you all! :D I have been seeing the Aztec print EVERYWHERE recently. From cute cardigan to skirts, this print is super cute! I decided to style four different Aztec printed things today, so you can get some fashion outfit inspiration for many different articles of clothing instead of just one! Let's get started!

1. Aztec cardigan - I love a printed cardigan because it is the star of the outfit :) Just wear a neutral tank (or shirt!) and some skinny jeans.... Ta-da! Such a cute and easy look! Don't you just love the cat flats I found? ;)

2. Aztec sweater - This is personally my favorite way to style the Aztec trend because I have a super cute Aztec sweater in my closet :D All you have to do is throw on your favorite pair of pants, the adorbs sweater, and some booties! Takes about 2 seconds to get dressed, and you will still look super amazing!

3. Aztec top - You could either pair an Aztec top with just some skinny jeans as well, or you can dress it up! I think a black circle skirt would look amazing! <3

4. Aztec leggings - If you are all about the printed leggings, rock some Aztec ones! Wear your fav top or crew neck sweatshirt for a comfy look all day :)

I hope this collage gave you some ideas on how to rock the Aztec pieces in your wardrobe! How do you style the Aztec print? Comment below!

My fashion collage posts are by far my most popular posts on The Chic Cupcake... What other fashion collages would you like to see???? Comment below, and I will totally make the collages you want to see! :) Have a great day!
