REEL Lifestyle Clothing Line

I was asked by REEL Lifestyle if I might like to try one of their items from their clothing line. I fell in love with this top with hood and short sleeves. It's very cool breathable fabric which is ideal here in the desert. I just love the flower patterns in the lettering and having a hood when my hair gets wind whipped.

My advice is to get a size bigger than you think you wear because they size these small. I'm 5'8" and an average weight, but XL was a bit more clingy than I usually wear. 

REEL Lifestyle also carries men's items including sporting clothes. I am curious to see how this company progresses with their offerings. So far, it seems like they have chosen looks and designs you can throw on and make classic, wearing them all the time. I love those pieces that you don't have to think about, can just pull it on and go.

*REEL Lifestyle offered me this shirt for free to review. They in no way influenced my review. I was curious to try out a sports clothing line to review since a great deal of my readers are outdoors people.*

1970s Halloween

Halloween took off in the 1950s with the first parties involving bobbing for apples and children dressed as their favorite cowboys and superheroes. It evolved in the 1960s with more and more trick-or-treating and school parties, with inventive mostly handmade costumes with some manufactured masks making it on the scene. But, in the 1970s, the industry of Halloween became a money-making beast in a time of innocence when children could trick-or-treat late into the night with pillowcases of loot and only the first mention of candy tampering. So, what was so special about 1970s Halloween? Let's take a look -

Man Vanishes Into Thin Air

Ambrose Bierce was best known as an journalist and author in the times of the Civil War Era. He was often called "Bitter Pierce" for having a very negative overall attitude about mankind and the human experience.

Maryland's Sykesville Monster and Goat Man

I've never particularly thought of Marylanders as being fanciful in the least. They are warm, loving, family-oriented, and hard workers, but not typically a story-telling lot. So, when they have issues with some unusual cryptids, it makes me sit up and take notice.

The Practice of Shrunken Heads

It was probably Ripley's Believe It Or Not or In Search Of, one of those shows of my childhood, that first introduced me to the idea of shrunken heads. And I was immediately horrified and fascinated.
