Now that All Hallows' Eve is well over, we can officially count down the best and gayest celebrity costumes of 2013. I scrounged Instagram for the finest star getups and came up with this pack of heroes.
You've been pilfering from the trick-or-treat stash all month long. This week your kids are going to come home with bucketfuls of candy. This candy binge has to end! Or does it? Fortunately, there are dozens of things you can do with leftover candy to make sure not a single sweet treat goes to waste.
Attendees are instructed to adhere to an enforced costume policy and show up dressed as harem girls, nomads, serpent charmers, sword swallowers, pharaohs, mummies, traders, treasure hunters, archaeologists and the bizarre of the bazaar.
I've been known to eat stale candy glued to a gingerbread house and even petrified tootsie rolls stuck to the wrapper that practically break your teeth. If any of this rings a bell for you, then this article may be just in time to help you think outside the (candy) box this Halloween.
he limitations are all things that we can manage and I'll always be there, finding creative ways to help him enjoy himself in safe ways.
Seeing all the bags of candy out for Halloween and post-Halloween can be tempting, especially when you're a self-confessed candy addict, but visualizing myself entering 2014 as a more fit, stronger and healthier me...both mentally and physically (in my size 6 skinny jeans)...is all the motivation I need!

Halloween is a hoot for Canadian kids, but a closer look at how candy is made could reveal a scary truth. Two key ingredients in Halloween treats -- chocolate and sugar -- might contain disturbing amounts of child labour in their supply chains. Thousands of children work in 3D jobs (dirty, dangerous and degrading) on cocoa plantations, mainly in West Africa.
All Hallows Eve is an event ushered in annually at my home with great fanfare, enthusiasm, and a liberal amount of custom wigs...

What kind of mom am I that shops for costumes online? And who always has to pay extra shipping to get them in time? And what kind of mom tries to control what her kids wear? Don't I know before the photo opp the costumes will just tear?
