Candy Corn Cupcakes and A Sparkly Sequined Doll

It's FINALLY Halloween! I know my readers are saying THANK GOD! HaHaHa! Yes, it's "trick or treat" time! I'm pooped. I'm tired. I'm thinking about being lazy and placing my trick-or-treat bowl of snacks outside with a sign that reads "please take ONE". Do you think the kiddos will be honest and take just ONE? HaHaHa Has anyone ever tried that? I would love to hear what happened. I have a bowl of candy, but I also have bags of chips and a variety of crackers. I costumed as a DOLL this year! Can you believe, I've never been one? It was very easy to do and the only thing I had to buy was a wig. I was going to giveaway this dress, but looking at it (and I apologize for not taking a full-length pic) it would also work as a flapper costume. So maybe I'll hold onto it! HaHaHa I also whipped up some classic, candy corn, cupcakes. I'm loving cupcakes more than cakes nowadays. HaHaHa Do you have a favorite treat? Wishing everyone a DOLL-tastic day!

You look great! Hope you have a fun time, enjoy! xo

You look wonderful doll, love that costume :)) Not sure if people would be honest and only take one, but maybe they would :) Giving out candy can be fun, but it does sometimes take away from enjoying it yourself as your too busy opening the door and handing out the candy. Maybe do a bit of both when you get tired :) I hope you have a wonderful time, you do look fabulous, love that costume ;) xx

Style Journey said...

Oh my gosh! I would love to be a trick or treater at your house, lol. You give out the good stuff :) Your costume is adorable and the cupcakes are awesome! Happy Halloween. Heather

Mica said...

Such a cute costume Kim! I really like it :)

We don't get trick or treaters here - we are in a gated complex so that keeps most of them away I guess, plus it's not such a big thing here. Hope you have fun and see lots of cute kids costumes :)


Natalia | Look-A-Porter said...

Happy Halloween! I actually really enjoyed all of your holiday posts - so much fun and very different from here (pretty much nothing apart from candy-craving kids) Talking of kids... Not sure they'll be happy with just one sweetie... Would you? ;)

Megan said...

What a cute costume! Love the hair and makeup, you did a great job :) And those cupcakes are TOO CUTE! Can I take some to work today for our potluck?! ;)

MaysaAndSunshine said...

Oh my god Kim, i wish i lived next door. Cute doll makeup and costume. Will you be wearing this to give out the sweet treats? You are a fun Halloween lady everyone would like to be with. Any kids who stop by will be so lucky to get your treats. No homemade stuff from me, i just bought a few bags of candies from store. I did whip one batch of chocolate peanut butter for a little one to share at her daycare though.

Happy Halloween my sweet friend.

Unknown said...

Speaking from experience, when my sisters and I were younger and a neighbor left a bowl of candy outside... we definitely took more than one! It's like potato chip, you just can't have one, ha ha!

Love your costume!!! and those cupcakes? May I have one?

Lorena said...

Hey Kim looking cute :)
Imagine if you went to a house and there was a bowl full of candy that said "take one"... how many would you take. ? I would take ONE bowl :)

Rubies and Emeralds said...

Happy Halloween!!! LOVEEE your ghost cupcakes...so adorable. Check out these spooooky treats I made for my friends!

Unknown said...

omg how cute are you?!!! A sweet doll, I couldn't think of a more perfect outfit for you Kim. If only the weather were more conducive to fall/Halloween I think I might be more excited, or it could be the flu...haha. Well I'm glad I get an excuse to stay in and take it easy. Hope you have lots of fun tonight!!!!
