DIY Halloween Party

trumoo DIY Halloween Party

You can’t have a DIY Halloween party without delicious food and drinks, spooky decorations, and fun costumes, right?! That’s why I’ve put together this virtual DIY Halloween Party for you – everything you need to create a Halloween party on a budget, all in one spot! This is a sponsored post on behalf of TruMoo, so be sure to check them out before you leave! You can follow TruMoo on Twitter, too.

I love that TruMoo chocolate and vanilla milk have 35% less sugar than other chocolate milk brands, plus no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial growth hormones! At only 140 calories for a cup, I can even have some – it’s my favorite after workout drink. I prefer the 1% low fat chocolate milk, but my girls went absolutely batty over the orange vanilla milk! :)

Now through October 31st, you can find a unique code located on the cap sticker of specially marked Limited Edition TruMoo Halloween Vanilla (tinted orange) and Chocolate milks. These codes can be entered online at for a chance to win a Haunted Hollywood Vacation trip! Also, when you enter the code, you will have the option to receive $2 off any Goosebumps DVD.

  13. Your Dia de los Muertos makeup looks amazing. I love being able to be creative with Halloween makeup and overall looks. It’s always nice to see unique costumes when trick or treating instead of seeing the same costumes over and over.
