Happy Halloween Witches! This past Halloweekend I was lucky enough to visit Salem, Massachusetts with two of my BFFs from college. I’ve loved witches, horror movies and scary things ever since I can remember. So a Halloween visit to Salem is one of the best things to ever happen to me. It was a cloudy and windy day which normally isn’t ideal, but in Salem it really set the mood.
Salem is super small so if you’re anywhere near the Northeast, it’s a great place to go for a day trip. There’s a ton of history, cute shops and of course witch culture going on all year. While October is the most popular time to visit Salem, you can really go anytime of the year and still get a scary cool experience. I recommend visiting HausWitch Home + Healing for candles, spells and home decor. I spent more than I would like to admit there on candles and tarot cards. You should also go to Brew Box for a coffee. If you’re there during Halloween, I recommend getting a psychic reading at the psychic fair. It’s basically a room full of psychics and you book one for a half hour to 15 minutes. I had a great reading that really centered me. After my reading, we walked around the graveyard.
Is it bedtime yet? I love my beauty sleep and my catnaps just as much as any feline. So I’m super excited to introduce Choupette’s Diary Catnap Kit from The Goodnight Co! The silk pillowcase, silk sleep mask, silk travel case, travel sleep mist and ear plugs will keep you relaxed and rested wherever your luxurious life takes you. It’s perfect for a relaxing staycation too. I love that everything is made of silk. It’s such a testament to Choupette’s personality and passion for luxury (yes, I know her personally).
Beauty sleep helps promote everything from weight loss to anti-aging. So if you’re looking to stay skinny and young, the catnap kit is a must along with a healthy diet and exercise of course. Nap time is truly one of the rarest luxuries out there and Choupette’s Diary Catnap Kit makes it even better. But, you better move fast. Only 500 kits are available. So get yours soon so you can post your epic #ChoupetteXGoodnightCo Instagram before drifting off to sleep.
Crazy shakes can make any day feel like it’s your birthday! But, be sure to share them with multiple people because no one can eat that much. Even if you and your friends don’t want to eat them, they’re still worth it to order to post on Instagram. Let’s face it, half of what we do is for Instagram and the other half is anticipating the next Instagramable opportunity.
I’m really big on vintage jewelry and unique pieces. This necklace belonged to my great Aunt Claire and I absolutely love it. A few of my great aunts recently passed away and my relatives saved their vintage pieces for me. I think they’d be happy to see their jewelry live on. I feel so lucky to have such beautiful one of a kind pieces that once belonged to such amazing women.
It’s starting to cool down here in New York. So this very well could be my last summer outfit. As I prepare to say goodbye to #summer and hello to #sweaters, I can’t help but look back at all the fun I had in Maine, Central Park and sitting poolside. Summer was fun, but fall is by far the best time to be in NYC. If you’re planning a trip here, try to come in September or October when the weather is perfect for walking around the city streets.
