  • #TravelTuesday: The Dark History of the Most Notorious Hotel in Los Angeles, the Cecil Hotel

    Welcome back to #TravelTuesday, a summer series on Spooky Little Halloween where we put a spooky twist on this popular hashtag and travel to haunted destinations across the globe.

    This week I am excited to welcome back Sarah Jahier, aka The Spooky Vegan, for another summer. Last year, Sarah gave us a tour of her favorite haunts in Orange County. This summer, she returns for our #TravelTuesday series to share the history of LA’s most notorious haunted hotel…one that includes a story as recent as 2013 that will make your skin crawl.

    In the Northwoods of Wisconsin lives a terrifying beast. It has “the head of a frog, the grinning face of a giant elephant, thick short legs set off by huge claws, the back of a dinosaur and a long tail with spears at the end”. According to those who have seen the monster in person – and lived to tell the tale – it smells of buzzard meat and skunk perfume.

  • Join my Halloween Book Club!

    Do you love Halloween AND reading? Well then, hello new BFF! We are going to get along famously. One of the many reasons I’ve always loved Halloween is it gives you the chance to dress up as anyone – or anything – you want. For one night, you could wander your neighborhood in any costume your spooky little heart desired and to me, there is something magical about being someone else for a night. Yup, I love a bit of healthy escapism.

    You might be familiar with the Bloody Mary legend – in a dimly lit room with a mirror, call her name three times to see your future – but, unfortunately for us Halloween lovers, the cocktail’s origins are much less sinister than this.
