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…

The Inner Harbor of Baltimore, Maryland (PHOTOS)


The Inner Harbor of Baltimore, MD is the perfect location for a day trip or weekend vacation. I'm so happy to live in Frederick, just a short drive from the harbor. There is no shortage of places to shop, eat, and explore at the Inner Harbor. You can spend a fun day with kids at the aquarium and riding paddle boats, or spend a day with friends shopping and enjoying a tasty lunch, or a day of learning at the nautical museums, or a romantic weekend of fine dining and strolling the boardwalk.

Just the architecture alone makes a trip to the Inner Harbor a unique experience. One of my favorite features is the pedestrian suspension bridge connecting piers near the National Aquarium. And of course it wouldn't be a harbor without rows of beautiful sailboats. A long walkway at the water's edge is lined with restaurants and shops, it's iconic round marina lighthouse, and my personal favorite - a Barnes & Noble that has a gigantic steam ship going through it from floor to ceiling and coming out on the exterior. The most unique feature to Baltimore's Inner Harbor is the famous USS Constellation (pictured above), a USS naval ship that first took sale in 1854 and performed duties during the civil war and was later recommissioned during the second world war. There are smaller historical ships docked and a real submarine. These vessels are kept in authentic historical presentation and serve as museums. You can tour them individually or do a tour of three for one price. I've done the three-ship tour myself and as an avid history lover, this was one of the most incredible museums I've had the pleasure to experience.



The Harbor takes on a whole new feel at night when the National Aquarium (pictured above) is lit from within and all floors are displayed through the walls of glass. The restaurants off the water light up as well, and as the music continues in the background, you feel a cool breeze from the bay. It's the perfect time to sit on one of the many outdoor decks and enjoy the freshest seafood and the view of the harbor skyline.

  4. I've lived in the Baltimore area all my life, and I have never been on the USS Constellation. I'll have to put that on my list for this summer!
