Happy Halloween + Little Life Update

Happy Halloween everyone! This post is coming a little later and is not what I had originally planned because of things I'll get into in a minute.

I wanted to stop by and say Happy Halloween because it is one of my favorite holidays, even if I do sit here with my wet hair in a towel, Evil Queen candles lit, and Hocus Pocus on my TV for the 111th time this month.

October was so great and I had a lot of fun, plus it went nice and slow. Fall weather was a little delayed but last night I slept in a sweatshirt, socks, and had two blankets so fall (or winter) is officially here. *I say this as it will be 70 degrees in New York on Thursday.

I went to a Halloween party over the weekend and was a 'Social Butterfly'. I love playing up my love for social media in any way I can.



I'm soaking up the last bit of October by skipping This Is Us and watching Hocus Pocus until midnight!

I took this post at work today and couldn't stop laughing

Now... for the update.

Yesterday started out as a good day and turned sour within seconds.

I was food shopping with my mom, as I do every Monday after work. We parked the car in the parking lot (in the first spot in the row in front of the grocery store) around 6:15. At 7:05 we walked outside, packed the car with the groceries we bought, and then I got in the backseat where I usually sit because my mom's stuff takes up the front seat and I'm too lazy to hold everything.

When I went to reach for my bag, it wasn't there. Someone stole my bag right out of my car.

I've never had anything like this happen and I went right into freakout mode. I couldn't breathe or see straight and the first thing I did was cancel my debit card.

We went inside and told the manager who then called the police. This has been happening a lot in my neighborhood but nothing like this has ever happened to me or my family (occasionally we'd wake up and go into the car and the change in the car was robbed but that's not a big deal).

We waited for an hour and a half for the cops and I filed a police report with everything missing. I had over $1000 worth of stuff in my bag and they literally just took the entire thing.

I was very shaken up and it may sound really silly and dramatic but having your personal items, no matter what they are, taken from you when they should be safe in the car, is scary. They have my drivers license, my house keys, my credit cards (which have been canceled), and my work ID. I don't like the fact that bad people have my personal information (thank goodness when I moved last year I didn't update my address on my license).

In my bag, I had my Kate Spade planner, a Henri Bendel notebook, a Louis Vuitton agenda, Kate Spade wallet and card holders... I had so much 'stuff'. I even had stupid things like my eye drops and vaseline and essential oil.

I got home late last night, didn't eat dinner, showered and went to bed. I was shaken up. I love my 'stuff' and to have those things taken was a little rattling. I was just scared and I don't care if that sounds dramatic.

So... I'm telling you this because things aren't going to be as usual at least for two days. I'm behind on a lot of stuff (articles that have deadlines mostly) and just trying to get my ducks in a row; canceling cards, getting new IDs and etc.

Just give me a day or two to get everything squared away and we'll be back as scheduled hopefully by Thursday/Friday!

xoxo
