Spirited Scorpio gets all giddy as Halloween approaches. It’s the one time of year when she can let her inner diva run free without driving everybody crazy! Everything must be decadent and dramatic, with plenty of rich treats and red wine. This year, Estancia Pinot Noir is multitasking to boost her fabulosity to a whole new level.

Playful Sagittarius loves holidays and doesn’t see the point to only celebrating each of them once a year. If she’s feeling merry in June, out comes her Santa hat, and there’s always a couple of chocolate bunnies tucked away in her pantry for random Easter urges.

Responsible Capricorn loves Halloween, but wishes it came earlier in the year to keep all those trick-or-treaters from running from door to door in the dark. Since shifting it to mid-August isn’t exactly feasible, she’s getting creative with her treats this year. Instead of candy and costume safety critiques, there will be Character Flashlight and Key Chain Sets from Sakar International. These bright, bold sets include one large molded flashlight in the image of every cool character from superheroes to Spongebob and one smaller, keychain-sized light (perfect for small pockets or big purses). Find your favorite shining face at major toy stores nationwide.
