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…

Chocolate Strawberry Tartelettes


Yesterday I shared my tutorial on how to make heart-shaped strawberry slices, and today I'm here to share a quick, easy, and very yummy Valentine's Day dessert you can make with the strawberry hearts.

I start with premade frozen phyllo pastry shells. (You should find them in the frozen desserts section next to the frozen pie crust. Typically 12 shells come in each box.) These are my trick for elegant and effortless bite-size desserts and appetizers. You can fill them with so many different ingredients to create a delicious savory or sweet treat. Fill them with scrambled eggs for brunch, melt brie in them for a chic appetizer, or fill them with pudding and fruit for a tasty dessert.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1-2 packs of frozen phyllo pastry shells (get one pack for 2-4 people and two to three packs for a crowd)
  • one packet of chocolate pudding mix prepared and chilled (you can substitute with homemade chocolate pudding) *Follow directions for pie filling so the pudding turns out thick enough.
  • 4 medium to large strawberries (per 12-count box of pastry shells) cut into heart slices

 Lay the shells out on your serving tray and fill each with about 1/2 tbsn pudding. (You can also use white chocolate pudding to make white chocolate strawberry tartelettes. Top each shell with one strawberry heart slice.

Tip: Make the pudding the night before and assemble the chocolate strawberry heart tartelettes about an hour before serving so the shells don't get soggy from the pudding.
