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

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…

Cranberry-Blueberry Muffins


I love muffins during the holiday season. It's an excuse to have cake for breakfast, really, just without the frosting. And while we all dream of a big pancake breakfast straight out of a Christmas movie, the reality is we're all so busy. If you're already busy enough preparing a holiday meal, but you still want to give your overnight guests something homemade in the morning, go for pastries. These muffins can be prepped ahead of time and refrigerated for a few days, so all you have to do in the morning is pop them in the oven.



INGREDIENTS
  • 1 & 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • dash of ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup whole milk (use unsweetened almond milk or lactaid for a dairy-free option)
  • 1/4 cup butter softened (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries (to use dried cranberries, soak them in warm water for about 15 minutes, until they soften and plump) 
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Add the egg, milk, vanilla, and oil and combine until smooth (little lumps are okay).
  4. Spray your muffin tin with non-stick spray or use paper liners, and fill each muffin mold about 3/4 full.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
