You starve yourself the week before Halloween [in hopes] that your unforgiving spandex costume looks a little less reminiscent of a stuffed sausage. You arrive at the party tightly bound by Spanx and hungry as f***; by your second drink you’ve eyed that box of pizza with its aromatic siren calls; only to awake to a shameful display of candy wrappers [which may or may not have been from your little brother’s trick or treat bag] collaged across your bed and what you hope is pizza sauce on your face.
This Halloween, opt for that loose fitting ghost costume with the large feeding hole and treat yourself; because there’s nothing scarier than a drunk girl on an empty stomach (cue the scene from The Exorcist). So whether you’re carbing up before the party or looking for an alternative Halloween celebration…
