You know for about five seconds I was sitting here thinking, “I wonder how long it takes to light all the candles and how much of a fire hazard it is” and then I remembered that we have this technology called electricity and LED lights. New York’s Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze is probably up on that. Find more photos on The Mary Sue…
Carving pumpkins is ambitious and messy. You set out to create a masterpiece like this, but once you start hacking away your pumpkin looks like this. Fail.
We suggest you skip the mess this year and try one of these easy no-carve pumpkin decorations. No Band-Aids required.
Justin Bieber stans and Halloween are two of my favorite things so I figured why not combine them? Celebrity fans can be intense sometimes but there are none other like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber stans who are quick to pull the trigger on anyone with an inkling of negativity directed at their king or queen. I understand loving something that much, I stan for Britney and while I can enjoy making fun of my Godney, for someone who is really young (and possibly lacks tact) viciously diving into a fandom can be a whole lot of fun because you get friends, creativity and community out of it.
Those three things can breed only one beautiful thing: fan art. On holidays that means all kinds of random, crafty, Justin Bieber-themed projects from stans that are both exceptionally creative and exceptionally not. Read more at College Candy…
Well that’s it, I give up. I will never, ever, be able to carve a pumpkin as well as this guy. And maybe that’s a good thing? [Neatorama]
This month I’m hoping to fill every possible moment with pumpkin-themed activities: pumpkin carving parties, pumpkin patch adventures, pumpkin dessert potlucks, pumpkin-launching catapult shenanigans, etc. And I didn’t know it until now, but none of these activities would be complete without the glorious presence of a PUMPKIN KEG. Apparently it’s super easy to make your own, although the tutorial recommends Sam Adams Octoberfest beer, while I think the occasion clearly calls for a pumpkin ale. But hey, if you really want to get the party started, fill it with pumpkin pie-infused vodka. Cheers to fall! [Celebrations]
So, at this point I’ve done quite a few recipe roundups, for all kinds of culinary indulgences from crazy-delicious cookies to gooey macaroni and cheese, and I can honestly say none of them has triggered such dramatic, drooling side effects as this pumpkin-palooza. I pored over pumpkin recipes with my mouth hanging open, every once in awhile yelling at my boyfriend to come into my office, grunting and gesturing at a photo of chocolate pumpkin marble cake or pumpkin caramel bread pudding, at which point he would sit down next to me with his mouth hanging open and we would both just stare at my computer screen, a low “Mmmmm” emanating from our throats. Pumpkin, you guys. It’s way better than porn.
Also, see the photo up there on the left? Those are pumpkin pie vodka shots. Yeah. Click through to get all the delicious pumpkin recipes you’ll need for fall….
It’s that time of year again — pumpkin season! If you grew up in the suburbs like I did, you’ll know that those unmistakable gourds are impossible to ignore come October. They line nearly every doorstep, with or without the jack-o-lantern faces for which they’re known. I don’t think I’d mind if I never saw one again … pumpkin overdose, if you will. But I’m definitely not mad about the slew of pumpkin-related beauty products that appear when the leaves start to fall!
Here’s eight pumpkin products that will have you pining for eternal autumn!
So Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday at the moment, owing in part to getting dumped around the holiday last year, and having not-so-fond memories of waking up November 1 last year still drunk and covered in corn syrup blood (and that junk does NOT come out of your sheets very easily, let me tell you.) So anyway, whoops!
But I am kind of excited about this pumpkin carving tutorial I stumbled upon, which shows you how to make cool jack-o-lantern cut-outs using cookie cutters! Find out how, after the jump.

Good news as we’re about to kick off this holiday weekend, ladies. New research has found pumpkin pie is the number one scent to enhance penile blood flow. Holiday holla! “Throw away the perfume and go get some pumpkin pie,” said Dr. Alan Hirsch, Director of Chicago’s Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center. If you are making pumpkin pie from scratch — like, using an actual pumpkin — don’t throw away the seeds! “Pumpkin seeds are very rich in zinc.” said alternative medicine expert Dr. Ralph Monserrat. “[Therefore], there will be an increase in testosterone and that increase will also increase the sexual desire,” said Monserrat. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! [via WPBF.com and Lemondrop] Keep reading »
