Halloween was last week, and depending how on well you did trick or treating, you’re either still eating Halloween candy right now, or going through sugar withdrawal. If you’re like me and have a rather insatiable sweet tooth, then you’re definitely experiencing withdraws right now. And so are some kids who are victims to a horrible, yet hilarious prank by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.
Kimmel decided to resurrect a hilarious prank that he got away with last Halloween by convincing parents to tell their children that they ate all of their candy and left none for them. The kid’s reactions once they found out their parents ate all of their candy is almost enough to make tears stream down your face.
Watch the hilarity here and try and convince me you won’t laugh. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NDkVx9AzSY). Would you ever do something like that to your kids? Share your thoughts with me.

Since our childhood, Halloween has always been a fun holiday, with tricks and treats around every corner and behind every door. However, if you are a true hopeless romantic like me, then all you will be thinking about as you cake on the pale white makeup and wrapping yourself up with that ghoulish costume is, well, L.O.V.E.
After researching “All Hallow’s Eve,” I was surprised to discover how love plays into Halloween. It seems that back in the olden days, many folks hoping to find love or keep the ones they love, performed spells to do so. Since it’s the day when the dead and alive are so close to one another, Halloween is actually the best day of the year to cast a spell according to folklore.
I came across a spell that you better believe I will be trying out this year. There are many variations to it, but it seems quite simple. It’s all centered around the “apple.” `I like to call it “The Hungry Mirror.” According to folklore, at midnight on Halloween you must cut an apple into nine slices while standing in front of a mirror. Make sure to not summon Bloody Mary in the process, by accidentally cutting yourself and making a bloody mess. Once you have made your snack edible, use the knife to hold each slice as you look into the mirror and eat each piece one by one. According to legend, as you are chomping down on the last of the delicious red (or granny smith) an image of your true love will appear in the mirror over your shoulder. Sound creepy? Heck no! I think it sounds like time saved on wasteful dating. Try it out this year and tell me about it. I’m just dying to know…
The Miley Cyrus “BANGERZ” concert at All State was FANTASTIC!
I only have one word to describe Miley Cyrus “Bangerz” concert at the All State Arena….fantastic!
Icona Pop was the opening act and got the crowd pumped! The duo lit up the stage with their DJ and rocked out! They ended their set with their smash hits “I Love It” and “All Night”. You could feel the energy level rise while we waited for the performance that was about to happen!
The Queen of Controversy opened the concert with the album title “Bangerz” (yes with a z) and just blew everyone away by sliding down a pink tongue shaped slide and immediately busted out her twerkalicious moves. The lights, the animated cartoons that went with each song, and the costumes were all part of this ridiculously off the wall concert that had the fans screaming Miley’s name at the top of their lungs!
She performed all of my personal favs like “Adore You“, “Love Money Party” where she rolled out on a Cadillac and then sang “Drive” and “FU” wearing a marijuana sequenced leotard.
The crowd flipped out when she came toward the back of the arena to do covers of “Hey Ya” and “Jolene” in a more intimate setting and all this while talking selfies! Can she get anymore adorable??
We all thought the concert was over when she started floating away on a giant hotdog but she came back for not only one but two encores! The first was to perform the two hit singles off the album “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” and she killed the show with the song that makes me proud to be an American, “Party in the USA“.
I had way too much fun at this concert and wouldn’t have traded this experience for anything. Everyone always talks smack about the 21 -year-old but think about it… she’s the new Madonna! Miley is a 2nd generation cross over music artist and has her whole career to become a plain Jane. Right now she is just living like any young artist who has fame and money and it’s well deserved. Miley is coming out of everyone’s mouth and tongue (get it?).
The “Bangerz” album reminds me of everything any young person is going through right now in our generation and she is just rocking the charts. Way to go Miley, GET IT GIRL! #Bangerz
