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…

Snapshots from the Week


I hope your week is going well so far! I'm back at it full-time with my site and blogs, because while I love the Mary Kay products themselves and while yes, the consultant who recruited me was very polite, I did not care for a lot of the things that transpired after signing up. My concerns only grew more and more after doing further research on the company. I have a lot of things to say on the matter, which will go into a separate and very long post, but for now, here are the good things that brightened up my week.:)


My first date with my fiance, since the last roundup post, was a lunch date at the Jenks River Walk. It has a lovely outdoor area for strolling around, and there are plenty of nice restaurants.


We had lunch at Los Cabos. It was my first time to eat there, and I really liked it. Very yummy fajitas!


And despite my fiance's new work schedule that we're adjusting to, he still sneaked in a romantic date night at home, stopping by on the way home to pick up some beautiful flowers and some dinner (which he made for me).:)


Last night we squeezed in some more time together, stopping by Starbucks then Barnes and Noble. Yes, we sometimes get coffee there before we head into Barnes and Noble haha. He wanted to get me to gold on the Starbucks star rewards program, and I like the coconut milk cappuccinos, which I can't get at Barnes and Noble.


We've taken to relaxing there together with some coffee and magazines...a ritual which I used to do alone and am very happy to now enjoy with him.:) I think having an enriched life is all about balance in that sometimes you don't have as much time (or may not have as much money) for certain things, but that shouldn't stop you from enjoying what you can do in the moment...like a short but fun and relaxing trip to Barnes and Noble on a busy weeknight, or a nice lunch date if you don't have time for dinner and a movie.

That being said, he is spoiling me with a nice hotel stay this weekend, and we're taking the kids to see a movie this week as well.

You guys have a great week!:)
