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…

How to Make Sugared Cranberries


I've been dying to make these ever since I saw them on Pinterest. They're so beautiful and can be used for so many things from garnishing desserts and cocktails or as a festive snack on your holiday buffet. Try them on this gorgeous and yummy Cranberry-Spice Layer Cake! They keep for about a week, so you can make them ahead of time and use them in several recipes. You can increase or decrease the quantity. Just be sure to keep the proportions the same. I have to say, I was skeptical that these would be sweet enough to snack on without them being cooked, but they were so yummy, it was very hard to not eat them all before I took pics. It really helps to soak them overnight. Some sugared cranberry recipes call for soaking them just an hour or two, but as the evening went on and I sneaked a few out of the bowl, I could tell they would need to soak overnight to get sweet enough. It's also equally important to let them air dry for an hour or two before you coat them with sugar. It really helps the sugar stick.


INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cups water
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar for coating 

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Combine the water and sugar in a small pot to make a simple syrup. Stir and heat to simmering (do not boil).
  • Rinse the cranberries and place in a heat-proof bowl. When the simple syrup comes to a simmer, pour it over the cranberries and refrigerate overnight. (If you're in a pinch, a few hours is okay too!)
  • Take them out of the fridge and lay in an even layer to let dry at room temp for about an hour.
  • Fill a wide-rimmed bowl with sugar. You could use sanding sugar, but all I had on hand was regular granulated sugar, and it turned out perfect for my taste. Place a large spoonful of cranberries into the bowl and use the spoon to roll them around until they're thoroughly coated. Enjoy!
