For Halloween Crystal Head Onyx Vodka and Crystal Head Skull Vodka.

Crystal Head Onyx Vodka 70cl, £45.99
Available to purchase at VIP Bottles

Crystal Head Onyx Vodka is full of power, strength and high energy, just like the healing stone it’s named after. The world’s first agave based vodka, this expression truly is one of a kind.
Is it a vodka, or is it a tequila? One thing we do know is that Crystal Head Onyx Vodka is a staple for this spooky season.
Unlike most traditional vodkas which are distilled from grains and potatoes, this expression is devised from Blue Weber Agave. Yes, that’s right – the ingredient that makes tequila!
The world’s first Blue Weber Agave based vodka, gives this spirit unique character and distinction. Crafted in the Jalisco region of Mexico and blended with the purest water from Newfoundland, Canada, this vodka is crisp, clean and smooth in finish.
Traces of citrus peel restore a soft fruity taste and an influx of white pepper provides a delicate warming heat to the palate, climaxing to a full-bodied and well-balanced expression.
This edition of Crystal Head’s signature skull-shaped bottle takes a turn on the dark side. A satin black hue coats the bottle, as a tribute to the powerful & mysterious healing crystal this drink is named after, Onyx.
Crystal Head Skull Vodka 70cl, £39.99
Available to purchase at VIP Bottles

Ultra-premium and ultra-pure, this unadulterated spirit is clean and clear, but still oozes attitude. Enjoy Crystal Head Skull Vodka’s on-the-nose aromas of neutral grain, with a subtle suggestion of citrus and a sweet hint of vanilla.
Inspired by the legendary crystal skulls from the Aztec era, believed to hold mystical powers, this iconic Crystal Head Skull Vodka will blow your mind.
The brainchild of Ghostbusters star and comedy legend Dan Aykroyd, Crystal Head is ultra-premium and ultra-pure. This smooth vodka is quadruple-distilled from Canadian corn into a neutral grain spirit and blended with pristine water, then filtered seven times — three of which are through layers of 500 million year-old crystals known as Herkimer diamonds.
The end result is a silky smooth spirit that’s clean, clear and colourless, but still oozes attitude, with on-the-nose neutral grain aromas, a delicate touch of citrus, and a hint of sweet vanilla.
Perfect Serve: Add Crystal Head Skull Vodka and dry vermouth into a mixing glass with plenty of ice. Stir and strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a whole baby corn for a desert chic drink.

Trick or Treat’ yourself to a bagel because Pumpkin Spice is BACK!

Get ready for the spooky return of the limited-edition, Halloween bagel from the UK’s number one bagel brand, New York Bakery Co.

Halloween is creeping upon us once again, and that can mean only one thing – the spook-tacular Pumpkin Spice bagels from New York Bakery Co. After flying off the shelves for the past two years, it was only right that the UK’s number one bagel brand brings back its frightful fan-favourite once again.

Loved by all for its authentically boiled and baked bagels, New York Bakery Co. has infused classic pumpkin spice flavours alongside the recognisable, autumnal flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves into a delicious New York bagel. The seasonally spiced bagel is especially tasty when layered with cream cheese, maple syrup, blueberries and even a sprinkling of cinnamon, for that authentic American ‘fall’ flavour.

You won’t be able to miss the spooky orange and black packaging in stores (a must-have for every kitchen shelf this Halloween season). The limited-edition flavour will be haunting the shelves at Asda, from 14th October for just £1 (RRP).

You’d better be quick as when they’re gone, they’re gone so don’t miss out on a New York Bakery Co. Pumpkin Spice Bagel this spooky season.

If blood and fangs isn’t your thing at Halloween, SD Home of Menswear by Suit Direct have come up with some sophisticated costumes that will guarantee you’re the best dressed man at the party.

Keep it classy: Stylish Halloween costume ideas from on screen icons
While some people love Halloween, the thought of fake blood and fangs fills others with dread. If you’re looking to keep things classy this Halloween, then it’s time to search elsewhere for inspiration other than ‘Count Dracula’ and ‘Edward Scissorhands’. And what better place than from the most fashionable men on our screens throughout history!
Film and TV undoubtedly has a big influence on our style. From Peaky Blinders to James Bond, characters in film and TV have always guided the way for what we should be wearing.
Fashion experts from SD Home of Menswear, the UK’s fastest growing menswear retailer, have done the hard work for you. The best part about these looks inspired by TV and film icons is that they are all items that can transition seamlessly from classy costume to everyday style. So, you’ll be the most stylish many at any party – not just a costume one.

1. American Psycho – Patrick Bateman

Limehaus Blue Stripe Slim Fit Shirt – £10
Scott & Taylor Black Braces £15
Limehaus Pink Petals Tie – £14
He may be one of the most menacing men in cinematic history, but there’s no denying Patrick Bateman from American Psycho had impeccable style. Pair this Limehaus shirt & tie with these Scott & Taylor braces and you’re sure to look great for any occasion. Just keep away from the sheer plastic raincoat…

2. Great Gatsby – Gatsby

Hammond and Co Putty Linen Herringbone Tailored Fit Suit – £140
Scott & Taylor Yellow Plain Tie – £8
Limehaus Grey Penny Round Shirt – £10
Jay Gatsby was right when he said ‘Can’t repeat the past?… Why of course you can!’. While he may have been speaking about love, what it also refers to is fashion! Take this iconic cream suit. Cream suits were at the height of fashion in 1920s, and very much remain in fashion today. Turn up this Halloween as Jay Gatsby then wear again to Henley Regatta in July. Nothing says versatility better than that.

3. Peaky Blinders – Tom Shelby

Marc Darcy Eddie Teal Check Flat Cap – £12.99
Marc Darcy Enzo Blue Grey Checked Tie – £10
Gibson London Grey Tweed Slim Fit Tyburn Waistcoat – £49
Peaky Blinders is a perfect modern-day example of how much TV influences everyday fashion. You’d be hard pressed to turn up to any racing day without noticing the slews of men in their tweed waistcoats and flat caps. And who blames them, they look amazing! Nail Peaky Blinders style with this tweed waistcoat from Gibson London paired with this Marc Darcy flat cap.

4. Mad Men – Don Draper

Limehaus Olive Panama Slim Fit Suit – £50
Ben Sherman Textured Knitted Polo – £36
What stylish men from TV and film list wouldn’t include Don Draper from Mad Men? The epitome of class and style, Don Draper was the king of the dressed down suits for the office (although he could certainly dress up when he needed too!). With the rise in popularity of the dressed down suit, now is the perfect time to pick up this textured polo from Ben Sherman and pair with a suit like this olive one from Panama.

5. Pulp Fiction – Jules

Racing Green Black Plain Two Piece Suit – £100
Scott & Taylor Black Tie – £8
Ted Baker White Sateen White Shirt – £69
If you want something a little more classic, then opt for a simple black suit, white shirt, and black tie, like these ones above. A classic combo that works for any formal occasion, this look can be made into a Halloween costume by sporting a fake gun and dressing up as Jules from ‘Pulp Fiction’. Simple, yet effective!

6. No Time to Die – James Bond

Ted Baker Grey Blue Textured Suit – £349
Ted Baker Square Contrast Cufflinks – £39
Scott & Taylor Navy Tie – £8
THAT suit from ‘No Time to Die’, the grey one with the blue tie – you know the one. Ever consider how easy that would be for a costume? Well, we’re here to remind you! Make sure to pair with a blue tie and some cufflinks, like these Ted Baker ones. Daniel Craig who?

7. You – Joe

Selected Homme Harry Denim Jacket in Blue Wash – £65
Ben Sherman Stiles Rucksack – £25
Black Steven Corduroy Cap – £18
The Netflix sensation ‘You’ made for some entertaining watching over lockdown. While Joe may not be a style icon, he certainly is creepy. His style is also easy to emulate, and we LOVE this denim jacket from Selected Homme, very similar to one worn by Joe in ‘You’. Accessorise with a cap and rucksack for true Joe style and then use the items for everyday wear for years to come.

8. Gossip Girl – Chuck Bass

Melka Billan Navy Coat – £49
Jeff Banks Grey Burgundy Striped Scarf – £13
Ben Sherman Oxford Shirt – £60
While not the creepiest of shows, Gossip Girl sure did influence a lot of style in its day. The iconic scarf that Chuck Bass wore throughout the series may be hard to come by, but this one by Jeff Banks is not far off! Pair with this Melka navy overcoat, a loose white shirt, and a lot of pouting, and you’ll be the best Chuck Bass in any room.

A fabulous choice of premium spirits are bound to please all taste preferences to make a memorable Halloween and Bonfire night this year.

Halloween and Bonfire Night – Bushmills and Maestro DOBEL

Ideal for Mischievous Margaritas on Halloween | A firm favourite of discerning Mexicans and the world’s first Cristalino, multi-aged tequila, Maestro DOBEL Diamante is the perfect concoction for your ghoulish guests over the spooky season. This bright, light ‘Cristalino’ style tequila with silver touches holds exceptional body thanks to the high-quality blue agave used, harvested at peak condition, resulting in an intense, bold flavour. Maestro DOBEL Diamante is handcrafted using a unique carbon filtration process that allows the gentle removal of colour while retaining the sophisticated, complex aromas and intense flavours that have been imparted by the wood during the maturation process.

Stockist: Harveynichols.com & Harrods.com
Price: £68

For the discerning and curious Scotch whisky drinker | Maestro DOBEL Humito is the world’s first smoked silver tequila – the creation of the clear liquid was sparked by the original, artisan practices of our first generation of Tequila distillers and has continued through 11 further generations. As with the entire DOBEL family, it is made with 100% blue agave and its smokiness is achieved solely through channelling the complexity and richness of nature. Cooking the agave over aromatic mesquite wood results in an extraordinary balanced and elegant smoky note. This delicately complex, sultry liquid is a compelling alternative to Scotch and brings the spirit of Bonfire night to wherever you might be celebrating.
ABV: 40%
Stockist: Harveynichols.com & Hedonism.com
Price: £64

For a fan of a good Irish whiskey | Crafted at the oldest distillery in Ireland, Bushmills 10 Year Old is an ideal starting point for the curious, eager to start their exploration of the world of Irish whiskey. Triple-distilled from 100% malted barley and matured for a minimum of 10 years in bourbon-seasoned barrels, this whiskey is fresh and zesty with aromas of honey, vanilla and milk chocolate. Enjoy Bushmills 10 Year Old in our Singular Tales cocktail whilst you exchange spooky stories around the fire.
Stockist: thewhiskyexchange.com
Price: £35

For those with a sweet tooth | A distinctive whiskey from the creators of the original single malt, Bushmills 16 Year Old Single Malt Whiskey is a story in three chapters. Aged in a combination of Oloroso Sherry and bourbon-seasoned barrels, before going through a final finishing period in Port wine casks, the unique maturation process creates a truly fantastic whiskey. With complex notes of juicy fruits, nuts and spice, as well as a hint of ruby redness, the 16-Year-Old Single Malt is an adult version of a toffee apple minus the teeth-pulling toffee.
ABV: 40%

One Planet Pizza and Wicked Kitchen launch Spooktacular Halloween pizza
Featuring Violife’less cheezy ghost

It’s all treats and no tricks this year with the launch of the Wicked-Planet Pulled Mushroom Pizza, a devilishly delicious plant based feast from One Planet Pizza and Wicked Kitchen’s Derek Sarno. This ghoulish limited edition Halloween pizza features One Planet Pizza’s family recipe tomato sauce, topped with BBQ pulled oyster mushrooms, black olives, melty vegan cheeze, spicy sriracha mayo and a spooktacular Violife cheezy ghost on a delightful thin crust base infused with olive oil and stone baked for premium authenticity.
This exciting collaboration between One Planet Pizza and Derek Sarno proves that plant-based food knows no bounds. The combination of juicy pulled mushrooms, tangy black olives and creamy Violife cheeze will delight any and all thrill-seeking food lovers this Halloween.
With the nights getting longer and a chill in the air, there’s no better way to spend this Halloween than huddled up with a Wicked-Planet Pulled Mushroom Pizza, topped with 25% more cheeze than leading plant-based pizzas, and with 20% fewer calories and 30% less fat than leading meat and dairy pizzas. Plus, One Planet Pizza’s treats keep giving, as every pizza sold helps them plant trees with reforestation partners One Tree Planted.
Joe Hill, co-founder of One Planet Pizza, says: “It’s been a plant based dream come true to collaborate with Derek Sarno, whose innovative creations have proved that eating plants can be even more exciting and tasty than meat and dairy products. Our Wicked-Planet Pizza is the first pizza in retail to feature a cheeze shaped ghost and we know vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters alike will be delighted with the epic flavours in every slice.”
Derek Sarno, Co-Founder of Wicked Kitchen, says: “One Planet Pizza has been on my radar for a while now, always happy to work with great teams such as theirs. So when they approached me to help them craft a Wicked Pizza, for Halloween, the ideas flowed. We have something really special and incorporated some of the mushroom innovation I’ve been working on. We landed on the BBQ pulled King Oyster paired with the creamy cheeze, salty olives, and kick of sriracha. It’s all treat and no tricks, and it’s wicked delicious!!”
The Wicked-Planet Pulled Mushroom Pizza is available to buy online from One Planet Pizza Direct priced at £3.99.

The Ultimate Spooktacular Halloween Feature Guide. By (ossieannc).

Looking to throw the spookiest spooktacular Halloween Party ever? Begin by inviting your
guests with an invite that will set the tone. State everything you’d like them to know in that
invite from the theme to the snacks.
Now the invites are out, it’s time to decorate. One of the biggest tips I can give when decorating
your home for Halloween is to layer your decorations. Layer, layer, then layer again! Look for
the spookiest decorations ever i.e, bats, spiders, cobwebs, roches, fake blood, skeletons, tissue,
evil face looking pumpkins and the list goes on.
But wait we can’t have a party without food right? When planning food ideas opt for light fun
little snacks, for instance halloween themed deviled eggs, fruits, veggies, salad, and desserts.
This is where your creativity comes in, there are loads of ideas on Pinterest for making the
yummiest and spookiest delights for your guests.

without treats right, I mean the entire concept of the season is Trick or “Treat” for the trick or
treaters. So let’s switch it up a bit this year, we all know healthier is always better and seeing that
candy is made with so much sugar lets opt for something healthier this time around. Have you
ever heard about Vegan Candy? Yes you heard me right, vegan candy!

A SPOOKTACULAR SCENE AT COACH & HORSES
INSPIRED BY THESE SCENES? DRESS UP AS ONE OF THE MANY GREENE KING PUBS SIGNS IN LONDON FOR A FREE DRINK!

The Coach & Horses pub, located in central London, had a fearfully frightful start this morning – as a whole host of individuals turned up for food and drinks dressed in petrifying coach and horse’s costumes.

Bartenders at the Coach & Horses pub were left asking, “Why the long face?”, when visitors, dressed as horses, galloped into the pub in front of a variety of spooky coaches, to claim a free drink.

They say you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink, but that wasn’t the case at the Coach & Horses as a group of them were seen drinking their deliciously refreshing pints whilst taking in the unique history of the long-standing venue.

This follows the exciting announcement that the UK’s leading pub company and brewer, Greene King, will be giving out free drink vouchers in London from 28 – 30 October (T+C apply). Drinks range from a spooky Blood Orange G&T through to a refreshing pint.

Fun selfie boards will be on hand in all pubs and those in the most creative outfits can take a picture and upload it to their socials, using the hashtag #GKPubSigns, for a chance to win a £1,200 bar tab and use of a private space in one of our pubs. Winners will also be treated to a box of Greene King beers delivered straight to their door.

Greene King wants London to ‘Come Back Inn’ this Halloween, so get dressed up and visit one of the many pubs! Whether it’s a Silver Cross in Whitehall, a Punch & Judy in Covent Garden, or a Sherlock Holmes in St James, this is the perfect opportunity to rally up friends for a Halloween challenge like no other.

Nik Burniki, general manager at The Coach & Horses at Greene King said, “Pubs have been part of the fabric of London for hundreds of years, providing a pint and a place to get together. After the last 18 months, let’s be honest, we never knew how much we could miss a pint! So, with £1,200 up for grabs, you and your friends better hurry down – I can’t wait to see everyone dressed up!”

As Halloween weekend approaches, now is the ideal time to head out and learn the rich history of the Greene King pubs. Whether that’s the 300 years old, The Globe, located in Marylebone, which is said to still be spooked by the dead landlord William Thorton or the Marlborough Head in Mayfair that stands on a site once used to execute thousands of criminals between the 12th and 18th Centuries. Plan your spooky evening around Greene King’s most haunted pubs.

Terms & Conditions
• Only x1 drink can be redeemed per person
• The vouchers will be available from 28th – 30th October 2021 from Victoria, Oxford Circus and Leicester Square tube stations until 8pm and will be valid until November 25th, 2021
• The free drink is served on a first-come-first-served basis
• Participating pubs: www.greeneking-pubs.co.uk/free-drink/

Halloween Sips withFreixenet

Some ideas fromthe world’s top Cava producer, Freixenet (fresh-eh-net).

For those kicking the month off with (or sticking to) a Sober October regimen, Freixenet has the perfect chilling cocktail, made with Alcohol-Removed Sparkling White (SRP $12, 750mL). Created by hobby mixologist Dan Magro (author of Suck It Up: Extraordinary Cocktails for Everyday People), this Green Glory tart batch cocktail (full recipe below) has all the taste and aroma of a traditional sparkling wine, without the lasting effects of alcohol. Made with sorbet balls featuring Granny Smith Apples, Cucumber and Apple Cider Vinegar, and served in a punch bowl, this cocktail can be turned into an eerie treat by accessorizing the Sorbet balls with edible eyeballs.

And for those punctuating their alcohol-free month with a celebratory glass of (full alcohol) cava? Freixenet is best known for its striking matte black bottle offered in two varieties – Cordon Negro Brut and Cordon Negro Dry (SRP $12, 750mL). These festive bottles are not just for sipping, but also add a dark and mysterious element to the celebration. Dress the bottles up for added flair or fill your jack-o-lantern up with the Cordon Negro mini bottles (SRP $3, 187mL) for the ideal adult-friendly trick-or-treat.

I’m happy to send retailer information if needed.

Cheers!
Lindsay

Green Glory
Ingredients
Freixenet Alcohol-Removed Sparkling White
1.5 ounces Green Apple Cucumber Sorbet
Cucumber (for garnish)
Mint (for garnish)

Recipe
Using a melon baller, scoop 3 tiny spheres of sorbet and place in a coupe glass.
Gently pour Freixenet Alcohol-Removed Sparkling White over the cocktail, allowing fizz to settle when needed.
Garnish with fresh mint and cucumber slices.

Green Apple Cucumber Sorbet Ingredients and Recipe
3 cups chopped Granny Smith Apples (about 4 medium sized apples)
1 cup chopped Cucumber
½ cup Lime Juice
½ cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup Simple Syrup

Place green apples, cucumber, lime juice and apple cider vinegar in a blender. Blend until all skins and seeds have dissolved. Once it has reached a smooth consistency add in simple syrup and blend to completely incorporate. Pour the mixture into a wide shallow dish (like a cake round) and place in the freezer. Every 30 minutes take out the pan, stir the sorbet then return to the freezer. Once the liquid has achieved the consistency of sorbet, you can cover or transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer for up to one month. You could also use an ice cream maker instead of the stir method.
Recipe is for 1 cocktail. Makes 6 cocktails per bottle of Freixenet.

Trick or Treat! The time has come to start planning your epic halloween costume and this year, we’re going all out.

ABOUT BEBONIA
Like most members of the curly hair community, our Latina founder Soleil struggled to embrace her natural Dominican hair texture and felt compelled to straighten it to “fit in” with corporate America. She longed to achieve the same length and volume that people with straight hair enjoyed with their hair extensions. Then it clicked: why wasn’t there an option out there for people with curly hair to get big, long, beautiful curls? Soleil was determined to make it happen and thus, Bebonia was born!
