Seasonal Beer Review: Newcastle Werewolf Blood Red Ale

Hey! It's been a long time coming but I'm here to post a review of Newcastle's Werewolf Blood Red Ale!

I can't tell you how excited I was to see this at the grocery store last week! I was all set to get Magic Hat's "Hex" and then I saw this beaut!

What first drew my eye to this beer was the bright red lettering which said "werewolf". Imagine my surprise when I saw that the beer was manufactured by one of my favorite breweries!

Having been impressed by Guinness's production of a black lager, I was really inspired to see what a brewery known for its brown ale could do with a red....

I Put A Spell On You!

A few days ago a co-worker and I were discussing holiday films which we deemed essential. Though the conversation started with Christmas movies it quickly digressed to Halloween films as well.

These essentials of course included Halloweentown, Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and, of course, Hocus Pocus!

So many great one-liners ran a muck a muck, a muck in this movie (haha get it?). OMG I had such a crush on Thackory Binx too! Truly a piece of 90's Halloweeny gold!

What are some of your favorite cutesy Halloween movies?

Happy Book Lovers Day!

Happy Book Lovers Day everyone! Take some time today, tomorrow, or any day to enjoy a good book or short story. As the fall approaches I'm already trying to compile my own mental Halloween reading list!

If making the time to get into a good book is as much a struggle for you as it is for me then perhaps you could try an audio book. Here's a link to a free download of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to get you started!

x-posted from Reading Amidst the Chaos Daily Deals: FX Lenses

If you're a fan of seriously cool costume details you'll be VERY interested to know that for a limited time is running a special on their FX lenses!

As always you'll need a prescription from your optometrist, but once you have that then the possibilities become endless. For example, you can pick up these Gothika Red Vampire FX lenses in their Deal of the Day section for only 39.95!

I know I'll be checking in on this particular section for some more discounted Halloween goodies throughout the season!

Happy Haunting!
