All Treats- No Tricks, Please.

In case you need me this evening,
I'll be at a party at Fortnum & Mason.

{Yup, I love sounding cool.}

The truth is, as much as I feel like F&M is "my" special place,
anyone & everyone is invited to this soiree.

It's the store's Pumpkin Carving Contest
but the thing is...
Halloween in England
is similar to St. Patricks Day in the US.

People like it.
It's fun. 
There is themed junk available for purchase,
but it's just, 
you know, 
not actually remembered until the day arrives.

That's why I've elected myself as the Halloween Ambassador to the UK
and am taking the task of enlarging this wonderful holiday very seriously.

I have high hopes that, someday,
Britain can be a place where children can freely comb the streets at night
dressed bizarrely ghoulish & animalistic,
in effort to bribe their neighbors out of bags of fatty candy
in exchange for the promise not to terrorize them.

It's all I can hope for the world, really.

And the complimentary nibbles & sips that Fortnum & Mason is giving their guests?

Well that makes this place the best stop in London...
until, of course, Buckingham decides to pass out candy.


  1. I've just ordered my goose and goose and chestnut pie from them for Christmas!

  2. british children do go trick or treating! i did it every year when i was growing up. although, in scotland it is called 'guising' and to get the candy you have to do a 'piece' - kids recite poems, do dances, tell jokes, sing songs to 'earn' their candy! it was great, we would plan it weeks in advance!


  3. Have a ball, looks like a fun soiree, and it doesn't matter that anyone can go...what counts is who shows up! Hope you will share the highlights, happy carving!

  4. im glad you have decided to take on the role as halloween ambassador! someone needs to do it! and i would LOVE to come to your party :) xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  5. That sounds much, much cooler than my "we're going to a bar in costume" plans!

  6. Looks like fun! Now if only Italy could have a soiree similar to this.

  7. HAHAHAHAHA! You crack me up! No one remembers until the day of, like St. Patty's! HA! (That was terribly paraphrased but whatever.)

    Have a wonderful time. Are you dressing up? Will you go as Kate Middleton? That would be ab fab!

  8. LOVE this post - have been chuckling to myself in front of the computer and looking a little strange but SO worth it for the laughs...oh how glam - have a wonderful time...

  9. That little cafe looks fantastic!
    Would love to see what all Hallow's Eve is like over there;)
    Have a fun weekend!

  10. That's kinda sad, but you couldn't make a better ambassador! I just love Halloween. Rocky Horror Picture Show, here I come! Have a fabulous weekend!!

  11. HAVE FUN! Sounds like it will be an amazing weekend! We go a little overboard for Halloween here in the U.S.!

  12. LOVe Fortnums. Have fun and good luck with your mission!!

    Why American men should boycott American women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.


    BRAND NEW: Buy the Boycott American Women book. After reading this book, I promise you that you will never even think about dating an American woman ever again, or else I will give you your money back. That's right, if you are not convinced by my book, I will give you a full refund!
