I'm posting this a few days late, but this video by Nocturnaloner featuring Sam Heimer's artwork and "Pagan Holiday" music by Harley Poe is a perfect way to kick off October! If you're a long-time reader, you may recognize Nocturnaloner's name from past Halloween seasons (you can check out past videos I've featured here, here, and here!). He painstakingly animates all his videos and sets them to atmospheric music. I simply adore his magical videos that are imbued with the spooky spirit! See his latest creation below:

Spooky Vegans unite! I am so stoked that Vegan Power Co. has added a "Spooky Vegan" pin and sticker to their Halloween collection this year! They have brought back their "Creepy Vegan" design, as well as adding an "Evil Vegan" one this year, too! Which one are you - spooky, creepy, or evil?

We don't have Fred Meyer grocery stores in California, so when we were up in Oregon recently we popped into one to grab some water and snacks and were surprised at how huge they are! I also had no idea they had a Halloween decor, which I quickly gravitated towards and was delighted to find they had a ton of! I didn't buy anything, but had a blast browsing their sprawling Halloween section. I can't wait to get back up there and get back into a Fred Meyer (they also had a ton of vegan options in the grocery section of the store!).
Here are all the Halloween goodies I spotted in Fred Meyer:

Oops, this post is a little late - but better late than never, right?! I truly meant to post this way back at the beginning of August, but since I moved from Southern California and am still searching for a new place to call my home, it kinda slipped through the cracks! I'm sure you've probably already seen everything Michaels has to offer for Halloween this year, but just in case you haven't or in case you missed something, I thought I would still share some pics that I took more than a month ago when they first started putting out Halloween!
I really dug all the vintage-inspired decor this year at Michaels; they really hit it out of the pumpkin patch! It is by far my most favorite Halloween collection I've seen in 2019. Check it out below:

A to Z Candles make some of my fave candles and I order from them year round (my fave scent is Apple Cider Donut - it makes my house smell like sugary, fall donuts year-round!), but their Halloween collection is really something special! This indie, family-owned company was kind enough to send me their Halloween 2019 collection, and I am swooning over the scents! They are the same as last year (check out my review from 2018 HERE), but I am so glad they are back since they are so delicious! I wanted to feature them here (I've already shared them on my Instagram) since they deserve all the attention they have been getting lately! These are seriously some of the best candles and you can read more about them below!

I stopped into Target after my trip up to Washington and Oregon last week to hunt for Halloween. Since I'm so far from everything here on the Lost Coast, I didn't expect them to have anything Halloweenie out yet besides their dollar section (which I covered HERE!). I was surprised and delighted to find that their Halloween section did in fact have lots of terrifying treats out on the shelves already! I'll share everything I saw below...

One of the things I look forward to the most every autumn is the release of Trader Joe's Halloween food! They always have the ghoulest snacks and I stock up on their frightful food every fall. And their vegan options are always to die for (though I wish a few more of their items were vegan - I'm looking at you, pumpkin spice cream cheese!).
Unfortunately for me, I'm hundreds of miles away from a Trader Joe's at the moment. However, I took a recent trip up to Oregon and Washington and made it my mission to seek out Trader Joe's stores up there so I could indulge in some of my favorite fall foods! I got lucky and the Trader Joe's I visited were already filling their shelves with Halloween treats, so I snapped a few pics so I could share all the vegan goodies they have this year.
Take a look at their vegan Halloween food below:

Hello fiends! Apologies for my absence - I moved out of Southern California at the end of July and have been busy since then helping my family clean up my late grandparents' ranch and getting ready for another move even further north soon! I am in a remote location in Northern California at the moment - it's gorgeous and I'm enjoying it, but I am so far away from everything and when I do get into the nearest town it doesn't have many stores. Plus, my internet connection isn't the most reliable (though this means I've been disconnecting more and more, which is so healthy mentally!). So, Halloween updates may be a bit few and far between this year since I'm going through so many changes.
However, I did visit a Target about an hour or so away from me recently, and found they were just stocking their Dollar Spot or Bullseye's Playground with Halloween items! Not everything was out yet, but it was incredibly thrilling to see Halloweenie items at Target!
See what I spotted in Bullseye's Playground at Target below:

Sur La Table always has quality kitchen supplies, so I love browsing their Halloween items. They have a small but excellent selection of Halloween goodies like tableware, utensils, linens, baking supplies, and more. They just started putting autumn and Halloween items online, and you can check out some of them below:

By the time I post this, I'll be just a few days away from leaving behind Southern California and moving up north! I've been selling off a lot of my items and packing up the rest for what seems like months and I cannot wait to hit the road and start my new adventure with Mister Spooky and my cat Havoc!
As you can imagine, it has been another bananas month, I'm so glad I had some items that brought me joy this month. As per my monthly tradition, I'm sharing 10 things I loved this July. This monthly practice encourages me to reflect on things I'm grateful for this month as well as sharing some of my favorite things with you.
Here are my 10 Things I'm Loving this July:
