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.

Music Monday: Sara Bareilles ~ Brave



I have been obsessed with Sara Bareilles's music since her first album and loved her sound even more when her second album Kaleidoscope Heart came out. When she performed her new hit single "Brave" on the Today show earlier this month, she revealed that the lyrics were inspired by her gay friend who is struggling with coming out, though the words to "Brave" can appeal to many other situations as well.

To me it's about being brave enough to speak up whenever you're unhappy or hurt, whether it be in a relationship, at your job, or elsewhere. I know it's scary sometimes, especially facing the fear that even if you ask for what you need, the other person still might not want to give it to you. Unfortunately that's the only way out of a miserable situation...either they give you what you need, or you have to face the fact that they can't, and you need to move on. Even in the worst situation, there is still a huge sense of freedom and relief in having said what you needed to say. At least then you can blame the fu#ker, right?;)

In any case, enjoy the video...take a little break from the Monday blues. It features odd people dancing like crazy in public - sure to bring a smile to your face!
