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 Friday, guys! It really feels like the start of summer, doesn't it? Our kids get out of school today, and everyone seems to be ready to take it easy, including me! I do plan to go full steam ahead with the blog and new Youtube channel, but I am definitely going to enjoy NOT getting up at 6 a.m. every morning, and look forward to plenty of chill time with my husband.

For today's Friday Finds I've rounded up some more natural beauty products, a must-have Summer accessory, some fun mugs, and a cool new shopping service at Amazon. Enjoy!

This first one has the most beautiful organic makeup and natural skincare products. Toups & Co. Organics is created with certified organic ingredients and is talc free. Their shades are also free from artificial colors, preservatives & fragrance, which makes it ideal for sensitive eyes. I have very sensitive eyes and struggle with allergies when it comes to beauty, so I'm so happy to be testing the Natural Eye Makeup Palette. It comes with three beautiful neutral shades including matte flesh, shimmer mocha, matte bark. Toups & Co does have some new colors coming soon, which you can see in the photo above. Doesn't that purple shade look gorgeous!?

At Toups & Co. you can also find balms for face and body as well as tallow lip balm. Tallow is full of natural fats and minerals and is naturally abundant in vitamins A, D, E & K.

This next find is going to make your online clothing shopping so much easier! As an Amazon associate myself, I see customers frequently returning high-rated items like dresses and shoes, I always assume because they didn't fit quite right. With Prime Wardrobe you can select up to eight items to try on before you buy. So the next time you find the perfect cocktail dress for an upcoming event, for example, you could order it in several sizes, have it shipped to your home and try on within 7 days, return the ones that don't fit using a prepaid shipping label, and only pay for what you keep! This service is free with Amazon Prime.

Ken and I have Amazon Prime and love all of the perks, so I'm tempted to try this new shopping feature myself and do a blog post on it. Would you guys use Prime Wardrobe for online shopping? Let me know in the comments below.

If you could use another cute mug in your rotation (who doesn't?) this next pick is for you! At Coffee and Candor there are plenty of cute and fun mugs for gift giving and everyday use. My personal favorite is the Coffee Then Mimosas mug pictured above. With Summer coming up, you may want this cute Summer To Do List mug. It's also a great shop for an easy Father's Day Gift. Check out their selection of Father's Day mugs and enter for a chance to win one during the Coffee and Candor Father’s Day giveaway on Instagram June 8th-June11th!

This last pick is for any of you who are headed to the beach or the lake this season. At Me Plus there are so many cute beach totes and small travel pouches that are perfect for Summer.
