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 Valentine's Day Gift Guide

We are getting closer to February 14th, and I've already started to fill up my Insta feed with the color red.💕 It is definitely one of my favorite holidays. Whether you have a romantic partner or not, it's a great time to celebrate the people you love. My husband an I for example, usually get a little something for our daughters. And of course most of all, we celebrate each other.

My top picks in gifts always include the classics...some may call them cliches, but I call them classics. The key is to pick one of these traditional gift items - perfume, candles, gourmet goodies; in a way that is unique, luxurious, and/or personalized. Pictured: Valentine's Day Bundle Candle Gift Set by the Rockaway Candle Co. 

At the Rockaway Candle Co you'll find hand-poured luxury soy candles, and you can get any scent customized with a romantic label. If it's a Valentine's Day gift, I suggest the Amber Noir candle for a sexy scent. It's a "sweet and sultry fusion of creamy vanilla and rich amber with undertones of sandalwood and musk." You can also customize the jar type on any candle you pick by choosing from frosted glass, clear, or amber.

In addition to the first gift set pictured above, the other Valentine's Day Gift Set pictured features three new holiday scents - Chocolate, Valentine, and Champagne! That would make any candle lover happy.

At The Splendid Lily jewelry, you can get a romantic and personalized gift with the Morse Code Necklace and bracelets. The beads in each necklace stand for the dots and dashes of Morse Code spelling out any word, name, or date of your choice. Use the date of your first date, for example, or your wedding date if you're married. All beads, chains, and findings are either 14k gold filled or sterling silver and can be a mix of turquoise and gold or silver, or just gold or silver in color.

Also at The Splendid Lily you can find beautiful gemstone and crystal pieces, or a gift set, like this Half Moon Hammered Metal Necklace and Earring Set, also available in a silver or gold tone. If you're planning on buying jewelry as a romantic gift, you are sure to find something beautiful and sentimental at The Splendid Lily!

The gourmet goodie category is always a favorite of mine. And while I am totally addicted to chocolate, when it somes to gifts, I think something a little different is great too. Macarons, for example, are harder to come by, and are a bit more expensive, so they aren't treats I regularly splurge on myself. They'd be a welcome Valentine's Day present for anyone who can appreciate a sweet gift!

At Pastreez a good size for a gift is the 20 Macarons Gift Box, which includes different fruit flavors; like strawberry, blackberry, and passion fruit. On the Pastreez website, you can get very specific with the flavors and how many of each particular flavor you'd like. There is currently a limited holiday flavor available, and that is a heart-shaped chocolate raspberry macaron. 💓 Each order is handmade to order, comes in a high-quality pink gift box, and with a complimentary gift note!

I wanted to include something for those Galentine's Day gifts, or perhaps if you want a heart-themed gift for children. Krystal Rose Soaps has just the thing! These adorable Conversation Heart Soaps come in a set of three and come in the colors pictured above - purple, pink, and yellow. The letters are filled in with silver shimmer. Everything is handmade and vegan, including eco-friendly glitter. I noticed on Instagram that she'll have some of these available, hopefully soon, in a cupcake soap form each with a heart soap on cute!
Krystal Rose Soaps carries several different heart-themed soaps that would be great as a Valentine gift to anyone on your list, though personally I'd pick the beautiful lavender soap and bath salts. Which one would you pick? Let me know in the comments below!

If you are the ultimate romantic, this final featured shop is the one you cannot miss!
