the dark side

When summer is over and the weather starts to cool down, I get so excited for the coming of Christmas (I’m such a freak for the jolly holiday) and I usually don’t think twice about Halloween.  I’m not sure if it’s the emergence of the skull trend and moody gothic makeup or the eerie gloomy windy weather we’ve been having that’s reminiscent of a classic horror movie, but I’ve definitely been taking notice to Hallow’s Eve. I’ve been decorating my house, wearing sculls, black and orange, and painting my nails lincoln park after dark all in anticipation of the 31st.  It could mean I’m turning to the dark side or I’m a sucker for themed attire.  I’m gonna say its the latter.
