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

Happy weekend! And Happy Groundhog Day, and Happy February, and Happy whichever obscure national food day it is.:) I'm just as excited as always to bring you guys the new Friday Finds. I'm blown away by the continued enthusiasm from business owners and readers alike. It's fun to keep up with all of the shops on Instagram, and it truly does make my day whenever I see one of the featured shops enjoying an increase in followers and sales. Even more so, to hear that featured shop owners have begun shopping the Friday Finds feature themselves. I look forward to adding on giveaways in the future!

The last few weeks I've dabbled in Valentine's Day decor on Friday Finds, as well as a Galentine's Day Guide and the 2018 KCL Valentine's Day Gift Guide. For today, I'm featuring items you can give as a gift or simply spoil yourself with anytime. Pictured above: Be Mine Valentine's Day Mug

Let's start with Karolinka Kreations, where you can find any number of sweet gift items. My favorites are the love-themed and the his and hers mugs. The cute Be Mine Valentine's Day Mug pictured above is available in red or pink. Of the different Mr. and Mrs. mugs, I really love this Hubby, Wifey Camfire Mugs Set! Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

In addition to the cute mugs at Karolinka Kreations, you can find other items for the home, like wooden signs, as well as signs and cake toppers for special events. All month long during February, there is a 10% OFF sale on all mugs, tumblers and wooden signs!

This next great find, Madarella's Workshop, sells leather jewelry with a boho-chic, western vibe. It immediately caught my eye, not just because I love boho-chic, but because it's unique. There are a lot of leather earring shops on Etsy right now, and while most of them sell very similar items, Mandarella's Workshop sells some truly original designs; incorporating hand-stamped embellishments, distressed leather, and hand-painted leather.

For a romantic gift, my top pick is this Personalized Leather Cuff, though if I were shopping for myself, I'd definitely go with some of her fringed leather earrings, like these Red Hot Leather Feather Earrings pictured above. The prices at Mandarella's Workshop are very reasonable, and some will be discounted for February so be sure to browse around her shop!

Whether you're shopping for a gift or treating yourself, nothing beats a scented candle! My recent find in candles was at Lumo & Belle Co., where you can shop for handmade body scrubs and hand-poured soy candles.

There are some really great scents there, like Mimosa and Sangria, and all scents are available in 3oz. tins or 6oz. jars. I like how each scent has a fun tag. This Vanilla soy candle, for instance, is labeled "Icing on the Cake." For a sweet personalized gift, you can create your own custom candle. You get to pick the color, the scent, and a personalized message; like "Happy Valentine's Day" for example.

For the sentimental at heart, I think a romantic print is just the thing. I would hang something romantic, like this gorgeous Red Rose Valentine's Day Printable on a gallery wall with a few sweet quotes and our wedding pictures. At Phresh Prints Co. there are several different "I Love You" heart prints as well as a colorful "love is in the air" print.

I'm a big fan of these instant download prints. What as easy way to update your home decor. And for the price, you can afford to change the look of any room. From now until Feb. 14th take 15% OFF any print, which puts them all priced at under $5! There are several different types of designs, including scenery and animals. Though my favorite is this Eyelashes 8 x 10 | Instantly Downloadable Wall Art Printable for a chic office or bathroom print.

Being that it is February, you really can't have too much jewelry, right? I wanted to feature several this month. And while they all seem to have a boho feel so far (which is clearly my favorite), this last shop is the one for you if you like your jewelry on the more polished side.

At Bohobreath the pieces incorporate chic, modern metallics and beautiful gemstones, like the Moonstone Gold-Filled Stackable Bracelet pictured above. From bold agate-slice jewelry to more delicate designs, you can easily find something to your liking at Bohobreath. On select items, you'll also find a 30% OFF Sale so be sure to browse around!

You can look around at each shop using the links below. Find some beautiful gifts for the month of love, but don't forget to treat yourself as well! And have a very lovely week! 💕
