Happy Halloween!

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!

10 Creepy Places in Brisbane

A Halloween-themed month wouldn’t be complete without some city haunts, so I thought I would list some well-known, and maybe some not-so-well-known haunts around Brisbane. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, or maybe just want to learn about some creepy places around, let us highlight some places that don’t even include Boggo Road Gaol!

 

Some of these places might not be available to the public or have their own rules about entering. Remember to do additional research before you go to any of these places and always be respectful.

Ginger Spice Pfeffernusse Mummies!

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.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Spiders!

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.

Venom is the Romance Movie I Was Hoping It Would Be

Some mood music before we begin-

Venom came out on Thursday and I have been so excited to see it. I love Venom in cartoons and the comics, so I thought I’d talk about the movie, what I liked, some things I didn’t really like so much, but mostly pointing to the fact I love Eddie and Venom together.

(Spoilers will be white text you can highlight if you want to see!)
