Skip The Tricks, Splurge On Treats!

October 26

Boo! What could be scarier than 2020, right? But just because it’s been a year of frights and scares, (Remember those killer hornets? No thanks!) doesn’t mean we need to sacrifice the spooky fun spirit of Halloween.

Okay, so trick-or-treating door to door may not be in your future this year but there’s still plenty of sugar on the menu. Not only does buying your own candy mean you can skip trick-or-treating, but it also means you can get exactly what you want, you don’t have to worry about allergies or safety, and you don’t have to settle for “fun size” mini bars. Isn’t a full-size chocolate more fun, anyway? There are tons of cute seasonal sweets at Purdys or Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory right now whether you want tiny pumpkins, carved up jack-o-lanterns, or your favourite assortment in some Instagram-worthy packaging—why pick just one?

Still getting dressed up? A black eyeliner from Sephora is all you need to create countless costume looks. Draw on cat whiskers, and leopard spots, a lightning bolt (you’re a wizard, Harry!) or turn your face into a skeleton with just one tool from your makeup bag. Choose a twistable eyeliner pencil for a smooth application, or a liquid liner pen to create fine lines and details. Plus we promise you’ll find a use for your black eyeliner the other 364 days of the year, too.

Can’t commit to some seasonal spooky makeup? Why not try a headband as a cute, simple, low-commitment way to celebrate? Or, swap out your regular mask for a themed one—bonus points for one that glows in the dark. And let’s not forget Fido. Keep your pooch warm and in the spooky mood with a Halloween themed puppy sweater. Available at Nordstrom Rack.

Not in the mood for a costume? How about decorating the house instead, and keeping everyone outside your bubble away with a sassy doormat? Some fun (and easy) decorating can have you in the spirit of Halloween in no time. Check out this doormat at Nordstrom Rack!

Even if Halloween looks a little different this year (like everything else has) we promise there’s tons of fun (and candy and chocolate) to be had.
