Halloween is drawing near, and you know what that means: treats, parties, goofy costumes, spooky decorations and Jack-o-lanterns. What’s not to love? If you’re hosting a party, going to one, or just looking to kick your Halloween game up a notch, here are 10 luxurious Halloween treats that would be perfect ways to indulge this year – whether it’s for a host or hostess gift, a party favor or just an indulgent sweet for yourself. ‘Cause that’s totally allowed.
Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year, and it’s also becoming more popular as a time to take a mini-vacation. But where to go? The perfect destination would have some historic or thematic tie to the holiday, and a luxurious hotel to stay in, and at least one fantastic party, or parade, or assorted bacchanalia. Fog, ghosts and really good candy are preferred, but not required. If money is no object, and you can get away for a few days, here’s our list of the top 10 destinations in the world to celebrate a glamorous, mysterious, adrenaline-fueled Halloween.
The new school year is underway: you’ve picked your classes, been to a tailgate and a football game or two, and maybe you’re even sporting some new fall wardrobe items. But how are you feeling about your dorm room decor? If you’re like us, you bought or borrowed a bunch of used stuff from other students, friends, or family members. Which is totally fine. But if you’re feeling the need for an upgrade, fear not. It’s fine to live in a space for a couple of weeks, see what’s working for you (and your roommate), and then adjust. If you’re a few weeks into the semester and already ready to redecorate, we got you.
There are a handful of ways to get to the island of Martha’s Vineyard for vacation: private jet, private boat, commercial airline, commercial ferry or public ferry. Of these, in our humble opinion, the best mode of transportation by far is the Steamship Authority’s ferry service. It’s reasonably inexpensive, punctual, and wildly entertaining. Most importantly, it’s a vital, communal part of the iconic experience of a vacation on the Vineyard. We once read a quote from someone in an interview who said “when the ferry pulls into view of the island, I feel as excited as I did as kid on Christmas morning.” We couldn’t agree more. It’s the ultimate micro-luxury.
Summer holidays are over, and sadly, living in a uniform of sun dresses, cut offs and graphic tees won’t cut it for much longer. It’s time to look smart as you head back to campus. Sure, some of your fellow students will be living in sweatpants — athleisure is totally on-trend. But more and more, college chic requires more than just throwing on your cleanest dirty shirt.
