This past week, Vegan Pizza (located in the Anaheim-Orange-Garden Grove area), started making their own vegan donuts!!! There are already so many vegan donut options in Orange County (The Donuttery, Donut Bar [now Crafted Donuts], Cafecito Organico, Poqet Donuts, etc.), but you can NEVER have too many vegan donuts, that's just a fact! So of course I was ecstatic to check out their brand new spankin' donut selection!

I saw this on my Facebook feed and couldn't resist sharing! "It's Friday the 13th I'm in Love" Jason Vorhees/Robert Smith of The Cure mashup by artist Craig Horky! I mean, how absolutely perfect is it?!

Summer is swiftly approaching here in the Northern Hemisphere and temperatures are already inching up into uncomfortable territory (I can't stand anything over 75 degrees Fahrenheit; yes, I'm a delicate little flower). Though summertime means that Halloween is right around the corner, we still have to get through the sweltering days, which can be a challenge for those of us that prefer dark and dreary to bright and cheery.
So, to help cope with the impending sunshiny doom, I've put together a survival list of 20 summer essentials for dark hearts like myself. Most of these items are for spooky ghouls (sorry boils) and include creepy clothes, sinister swimsuits, boo-tiful bags, macabre makeup, and more. These are all items I either love or covet, I have not been paid to post them. Also, everything you see is vegan and cruelty-free. And I think it goes without saying, but ALL BLACK EVERYTHING (ok, with a few exceptions)!
I hope these 20 items keep you cool and creepy this summer!

Pizza is my fave food group and I'll pretty much demolish any vegan pizza put in front of me. Recently I was craving a BBQ chick'n pizza, and realized I hadn't enjoyed one in quite some time! I drool over a zesty BBQ chick'n pizza, and once I whipped up this quick and easy recipe it made me question why I don't make this type of pizza more often!
This pizza is super simple, and with the help of of few pre-prepared ingredients it comes together in less than 20 minutes - that's prep and cooking time combined! This pizza doesn't require too many ingredients and is very tasty! It's so easy to throw together that I kinda feel silly sharing it here, but I thought, what the heck, everyone needs more vegan BBQ chick'n pizza in their life!

SoCal Halloween and horror enthusiasts take note - this year Halloween will be arriving in July with the Midsummer Scream festival! It will be celebrating the spirit of Halloween, local haunts, and all things horror! This new Halloween and horror convention will be premiering July 30th and 31st, 2016 at the Long Beach Convention Center.
I personally can't wait for another Halloween fest - there is ScareLA in August, but this Midsummer Scream is closer to me and sooner, too! It's right around the time that some stores start putting out their Halloween items and I start getting really excited for the upcoming autumn season. This spooky convention will be at the perfect time!

I absolutely LOVE cereal. It seems silly to say, but eating a big bowl of cereal makes me feel like a kid again and I usually choose cereals that are geared more towards kids that usually have a cute, cuddly animal on the box. So when Love Grown Foods offered me a chance to check out their three new kids cereals, I was pretty stoked!

A family who moves into a remote house in Ireland must battle malicious spirits living in the ancient Irish wood that surrounds the new home.
The Hallow was at the top of my list when I wrote about the 10 Irish Horror Films to Watch on St. Patrick's Day last month, but it is an excellent horror film that can be relished any time of year! And now, it is streaming on Netflix for your enjoyment.

Last month I attended the Halloween Club's 4th Annual Spook Show in La Mirada, California. It was my second year attending the event (you can check out pics and my report from last year here!), which is a fantastic outdoor market selling all kinds of Halloween and horror-inspired wares! The event brings together a wide array of vendors who sell anything from Halloween props and decor, to makeup, to taxidermy, to clothing and costumes, and much, much more! Pretty much anything you can think of, including art, jewelry, hair accessories, purses, knick-knacks, furniture, masks - all with a spooky twist of course! Plus there were also local haunts representing there, too, along with various Halloween entertainment vendors. The event is like a slice of Halloween heaven in springtime!
