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


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

Strawberry Banana Feel-Good Smoothie


I typically feature vegetarian main courses and side dishes for my Meatless Mondays, but I'm assuming most of you overindulged on chicken wings, cheese dip, and beer during the super bowl last night. You probably need a light pick-me-up. This banana strawberry smoothie is packed with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune boosting nutrients that will get your body back on track. And it's easy. You don't need chia seeds or anything else from the health food store to make this feel-good smoothie.

Ingredients
*makes 2 servings

2 very ripe bananas (slice and freeze overnight or a few hours before)

8 medium ripe strawberries

2 cups raw fresh kale

juice of 3 oranges

1 cup low-fat milk or dairy-free alternative like soy milk (I like mine pretty runny. For a thicker, creamier smoothie, use plain yogurt instead of milk.)

Slice and freeze bananas a few hours before or overnight. This is my trick for making a sweet smoothie without having to use sweeteners. By using very ripe frozen fruit, you get the natural sweetness from the fruit without watering it down with ice.

Add all ingredients into your blender and pulse on high for about a minute. Enjoy!
