Come cheers
with Chelsea!

Take a peek inside my life as I stir in a little spooky, shake up some cocktail fun and garnish it with the parenting wiles of a little monster and boo.

Hang out in my web and join me in a toast to cobwebs, cocktails and motherhood.

  • An Eerie Tale to Share after Midnight

    An Eerie Tale to Share after Midnight

    It was trying to get in. But it needed permission. My permission. And I knew I shouldn’t give it, no matter what. If I acknowledged it was there, the results would not be pleasant. I could feel it in my stomach. The growing baby in my belly felt like it was trying to wiggle away […]

    13 Spooky Music Videos

    I love Halloween music, but I really get in the spirit after watching some well-made spooky-themed music videos. The last few years I’ve shared what I found and this year, I couldn’t resist yet again to do the same. Ready to watch some super spooktacular videos? All you have to do is click the play […]

  • Halloween Card Exchange 2017

    Halloween Card Exchange 2017

    If you know me, you know I am a lover of all things snail mail. There is nothing more satisfying than slapping a stamp on something and dropping it in the blue bin to hear the excitement from it’s receiver a few days later once it has arrived. This is certainly something I have always […]

  • Nancy Nightmare & the Wizard @ Universal Bar & Grill

    Nancy Nightmare & the Wizard @ Universal Bar & Grill

    Back during Midsummer Scream, I was fangirling over meeting Nancy Nightmare and the Wizard, an alternative horror pop/rock duo that hit me up on instagram to check out their stuff last year during the Halloween countdown. Their style was definitely more my pace so I followed them and it’s just kind of gone from there. […]

    Elvira for Couture for Every Body Launch Party @ Pinup Girl Boutique

    Way back at Midsummer Scream (was it really only a month ago? It feels like so long!), Cassandra Peterson (aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark) in collaboration with Pinup Girl Clothing‘s Laura Byrnes leaked a special preview of their up and coming clothing line exclusive. In addition to showing off the collection, they also handed out […]

    Midsummer Scream 2017

    It is 75 days until Halloween and what better way to celebrate the coming season than with my coverage and reflection of my attendance at the Halloween festival I attended at the Long Beach Convention Center on the last weekend of July? What. A. Blast! Midsummer Scream was all I could have hoped and more. […]

    Let’s Toast!…To Life’s Surprises

    Our family and friends have been asking and waiting and and asking and waiting… …And now? The time is here!

  • Three Years of Wedded Life

    Three Years of Wedded Life

    What’s the difference between wedded and married? Not much, actually. But for Erick and I, it is a little different. We celebrated 5 years of marriage in February even though today marks the official date of our wedding festivities. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think both are big milestones so since I didn’t share my feelings of celebration […]

  • Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars

    Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars

    Last year, I celebrated my birthday adventure in wine country. I had such a blast that I decided to do the same this year and even ventured out of my comfort zone from my beloved Castello di Amorosa. I was not sure what awaited us during our time at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, but it was […]

  • An Elvira Wig Styling How-To

    An Elvira Wig Styling How-To

    I forgot to mention in the video that I am following the tutorial shared by Bouffant Delacroix. Obviously, I did not follow them step by step (I could NOT get their “tacking” technique down at all. It was just total annoyance instead of assistance), but thanks to them, I got a rather kick-booty looking wig. […]

  • Dell Osso’ Family Farms Corn Maze 2016

    Dell Osso’ Family Farms Corn Maze 2016

    I still can’t believe we ended up spending over six hours at the corn maze! We definitely made good use of our time, regardless. It was constant fun the whole time we were there. It was also Dell Osso’s 20th anniversary for their corn mazes so a very special event to be sure. ๐Ÿ™‚ Naturally, […]
