It’s that time of year again, folks. Halloween! As a kid, Halloween is the best holiday second only to Christmas. But I mean come on, who doesn’t love pretending to be someone else for a day? it’s the one day a year where you can literally be anyone you want to be besides yourself. Kids run around the town on a rampage for free candy. Ringing every doorbell and yelling trick or treat just waiting for an adult to drop hand fulls of candy into a bag before they mutter thanks and take off in a dead sprint to the next house to repeat the process.
As a college kid, I love handing candy out to kids. Granted, I am still a huge kid, but I love carving pumpkins and decorating for the holidays and seeing all of the adorable little babies dressed as duckies and pumpkins and all those other costumes that just don’t look as cute on anyone over the age of 4 or 5.
My favorite part is definitely decorating the house though. Now I use some ghosts and witches here and there but for the most part I focus on pumpkins and the fall colors of orange, red, and yellow. These colors are the epitome of fall. All of the leafs change to these colors due to the lack of chlorophyll in their systems *Ya. I paid attention in Biology*.
Since I don’t paint my walls with every changing season or switch out my crazy heavy couch, I typically decorate by changing curtains and rugs. If you use neutral colors in your constant furniture, it is easier to switch out things like curtains and rugs to change the look of a room in a simple way.
The best part about decorating this way for Halloween is that the colors transfer over seamlessly to November and Thanksgiving. Get a simple, classic orange rug and you’ll be able to reuse it year after year!

Calvin Klein is a household name in fashion. It all started with a coat shop in New York called Calvin Klein limited with a meager 10 grand. The store featured women’s and men’s coats and other winter accessories. That was in 1968 and just a year later Klein’s designs got them on the cover of Vogue magazine. Then in 1973 he received the first Coty American Fashion Critic’s Award for a large womenswear collection. Let’s just say his success climbed and climbed and in 1981 Fortune magazine figured Klein’s income at $8.5 million a year.
Women hated furniture in the 80’s.
And in the material obsessed 80’s, when buyers were only willing to pay for hip labels, Calvin had the brilliant idea of putting his name on the butt of all the young Americans. That coupled with a massive ad campaign, featuring Marky Mark’s abs, the brand took off.
This was such an effective ad, in fact, that these boxers became knwon generally as Calvins, the way we call all adhesive bandages Bandaids, all tissues Kleenex, or sticky notes and Post-its. When you get a name to stick your product will sell.
Years passed and success abound, Klein’s annual income quickly surpassed $12 million a year.
Although success has waned over the years, Calvin Klein is still in business, producing fine products. And not just coats and underwear. Calvin Klein also has a line of-you guessed it- Calvin Klein rugs.
