25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress

Summer Hostess Gifts Under $40

Never show up at someone else's house empty-handed; that is what my mom taught me from a very young age. Hostess gifts tend to be more common during the holidays, but if you're attending a summer party, don't forget your etiquette. A hostess has to clean, organize, cook, then clean up afterward. Hosting a party takes work and money, so it's always important to bring a hostess gift as a proper way to say thank you. The gift doesn't mean bringing a bottle of wine for the meal. If you're bringing a dessert or drinks for the party, you still need to bring a little gift that is just for the hostess.
A popular type of gift to bring a hostess is something she can use for future entertaining. Just like with any gift, it's best to choose something that is functional but is also a luxury item that the recipient might not buy for herself.


You don't need to spend a lot of money on a hostess gift. Twenty dollars is a good average for how much to spend on a gift for a party host. If it's a casual barbecue hosted by a friend, you can spend $10 to $20 on the gift. If you're attending a formal summer party with a sit-down dinner, you should work your way up from $20.00. Personally, I'd never spend more than $50 on a hostess gift. Here are some great options for summer hostess gifts under $40.00.
