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…

KCL Friday Finds

Hey, guys! Welcome to another installment of KCL Friday Finds. I have to say I am loving this post as much as you all have been. As a consumer, and especially as an American...and of course as a blogger, I get products and brands shoved in my face constantly. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between what I really want, and what I only think I do because of crafty advertising.

But Friday Finds is all about the treasures you might not otherwise see, because they don't come in bulk at a big box store. These shop owners are the makers and artists that you might find at a local farmer's market or one of those enchanting main street shops that only seems to exist in the movies. I have come to feel as though I'm strolling around those darling shops and looking at unique finds, but I get to do it in bed on my laptop with a cup of coffee, and we all have the modern convenience of shopping online. Grab yourself a cup and enjoy these beautiful one-of-a-kind finds!  Pictured: Fall Berry Wreath by Club Botanic

First up, we have Stephanie with Steph's Scrubs and Stuff. I was first attracted to her shop by this Sweet Pumpkin Candle. If you follow the blog, you know I am one of those die-hard pumpkin and fall loving people. This particular pumpkin-scented candle has notes of butter, sugar, and fall spices; and all of Stephanie's candles are made with soy wax in upcycled glass.

Her shop carries some amazing body scrubs and bath salts as well, including a pumpkin spice sugar scrub for the season. Stephanie offers a discount on combined shipping, so it's time to stock up for Fall!

It's also time to think about autumn hostess gifts, and I can think of nothing better than a yummy gift basket. This Autumn Food Gift Basket by Swoon The Bakery at Garnet Creek Road is filled with jam, pumpkin bread, granola, and pumpkin spice shortbread cookies. I'm such a sucker for pretty packaging, and just look at how pretty this basket is with the burlap and the gorgeous tags. This would definitely make for the perfect housewarming or Thanksgiving hostess gift.

It's also a great gift for overnight guests. If you have family in from out of town for the holidays, for example, a little breakfast basket like this one will make them feel extra special.

Jane, the owner of Swoon The Bakery makes everything from savory shortbread to cakes, cookies, and candies. You can also purchase items from her gift baskets; like the granola, pumpkin bread, and  pumpkin spice shortbread separately. I know I'd love to try the shortbread!

This next find is such a quick and easy way to update your home decor for Fall. If you have $5 and a printer, you could have this Farm-Fresh Pumpkin Printable Wall Art hanging in your living room today! I absolutely love how owner Nicole has this one displayed, hung on twine, in front of a linen canvas. It's the perfect centerpiece for a Fall vignette.

Whatever your style or current color scheme, you can find an autumn-themed print that will fit right into your decor. Nicole has so many different fall prints in various colors and styles. See all of the printable designs at The Paper Wildflower.

Admittedly this last shop made it just as difficult as the others to pick out just one favorite product, so I've had to choose several! Billy at Club Botanic makes both fresh and artificial wreaths, and from the looks of his website, floral arrangements as well. If you're into fresh wreaths, take a look at all of the fall designs here >. For a faux wreath that will last year after year, try this gorgeous Fall Berry Wreath. Whether you go with the fresh or artificial, any of these wreaths would be a beautiful gift for friends and family this holiday season.

I've got to share an item from the Club Botanic holiday collection as well, because it's just so gorgeous. This pine cone garland looks perfect on that bar cart. It would look just as good on a mantle or as part of a table centerpiece. I would use it all fall and winter. Pair it with burlap and mini pumpkins for Autumn, for example, then pair it with some red ribbon and faux cranberry floral picks for Christmas.

I hope you enjoyed looking at these beautiful products as much as I did! And as always, I hope you leave KCL feeling more inspired. Leave me a comment below to leave some love for these shops. Come back next Friday for some more inspo and some more shopping! Have a wonderful weekend.🙂
