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 Mother's Day Gift Guide 2016

As much as I love breakfast in bed and homemade cards from my girlies, well...let's face it, nice gifts are always great too! You can of course go the traditional route with flowers or chocolate, or both, but here are some other great gift ideas for the mom in your life. Pictured: Mommy Fuel Mug by Willow and Olive

Mother's Day

Jewelry is one of the biggest sellers for Mother's Day, but for the stylish mom, you may want to avoid heart necklaces and charm bracelets. My picks featured above are some of the top jewelry trends for 2016. From marble to tassels and brands like Kendra Scott and Bauble Bar, you really can't go wrong with these if you're shopping for a mom who loves jewelry. And if you're on a budget, skip the jewelry, and get a beautiful jewelry box or ring dish. You can easily find one for about $20.

Mother's Day

There are so many great gifts you can get for the fashion-forward mom. I myself would love any of these things; whether a wearable item like a scarf or new bag, a cute case for one of my devices, or a fashion book or magazine subscription. And I couldn't leave out that super cute "But First, Coffee" travel mug I recently spotted at Barnes & Noble. Trust me, any Instagram mom would love that cup.

Mother's Day

Beauty products are something you could really splurge on for Mother's Day, but is also something that's great for kids to give. My daughters each love to buy me something, but they're too young to have much of their own money. A pretty lipstick or new nail polish, however, is something they can get for as little as $5 to $10. And even for the mom who has a seemingly endless supply of makeup, some new spring colors are always welcome this time of year. Want to take it up a notch? Pair it with a pretty makeup bag or a salon certificate.

Mother's Day

You can also go with something that fosters her hobbies and interests. For the mom who loves to cook, for example, pair a new cook book with a pretty set of mixing bowls or measuring spoons. The social mom would certainly love one of the trendy new Insta cameras or the blogging mug and notebook. The crafty mom would love a gift certificate for supplies or something fun like a grown-up coloring book.

Mother's Day

Something pretty for the home can be a great Mother's Day gift, especially for the mom who likes to play hostess. A soft throw blanket, pretty vase, or luxurious candle is just the thing.
