october is almost here, and the trees are turning orange, so it's practically already halloween. facts.
so, here's some tips on how to have a nice, cozy movie marathon with friends or just by yourself! must-watch holiday movies, my favorite snacks, and how to make your space even more special and cozy!

get comfy!

you can't have an authentic, truly cozy movie day/night without being 100% comfortable. fuzzy socks, sweaters, sweatshirts, whatever you feel the most comfy in! pull it all out.

you don't need to go all-out, but little things can go a long way. grab pillows from all around the house, hang some string lights, light a candle, make a blanket fort, or just set out a few throw blankets to sit on and curl up in. wherever you think you'll be most comfortable, or what kind of spaces are available to you-- especially depending on what you're watching your movies on (tv, laptop, projector, etc.).

snacks & treats

on your own or with a small group of friends, snacks are always a must! you can never go wrong with simle popcorn, but you can't forget the special treats like cookies or candy corn!

whether you're watching on your laptop, your tv, or through a projector on the wall, pick out your movies beforehand and decide which order you want to watch them in, and stack them so they're ready to go as you watch them!
so, here's my halloween watch list! obviously there's plenty more you could watch. these are just some of my favorites. however, i'm not much of a horror person, so most listed are the more funny, kiddy ones!
