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

Cheers to the weekend!! I hope you all are planning on a relaxing long weekend. I'll be working on Monday, but I am looking forward to some relaxing time the next few days. My husband and I have a romantic walk at Target planned...I always laugh at that long walks at Target meme, because it is real life for us. Then we'll enjoy some time at home with a good movie or our latest Netflix Binge (Santa Clarita Diet). Whether you are heading out or staying in, let's face it, one of the best things to do on the weekend is shop! I've rounded up the usual - beauty, home decor, fashion, and the perfect items for a relaxing #selfcaresunday.

Speaking of staying in and getting cozy, we have a returning home goods shop on Friday Finds today. Brittney with Brio Home Decor is debuting the most beautiful throw pillows this weekend! Get your home ready for Fall with this luxurious Chunky Knit Wool Pillow. It's a little bit of an investment, but unlike most "pillows" online these days, they aren't just the outside case, so you don't have to worry about buying a filler cushion. They're also made with 100% wool knit and are down-filled to add weight and plenty of cushion and fullness. And I cute and cozy is it?!

All orders at Brio Home Decor are just $5 flat-rate on shipping, so you can grab a few while you're there. For some varying texture, pair the wool knit with this beautiful Ivory Weave Down Pillow and this elegant light Grey Weave Down Pillow. Be sure to check out the other new arrivals at Brio Home Decor, as they've also added some cozy throw blankets and some rustic accessories that will make you want to curl up with a good book and some pumpkin spice coffee all season long.

If you love all-natural, clean beauty brands (who doesn't?), you have to check out the selection at Emanate Essentials. From haircare and skincare to perfume and home fragrances, they have everything you need to switch over to a clean beauty routine. All of the products at Emanate Essentials are non toxic and made with natural essential oil blends. I'd love to try their home fragrances as well as the essential oil roller fragrance. If you aren't sure which scent to pick, you can sample several scents with this customized Emanate Scent Kit.

Among their top sellers are the lotions, foaming wash, and facial mist. And what you'll really love about this brand is the customization. This Whipped Lemon Mango Butter, for example, can be customized with the addition of rosewater, cedarwood, or vanilla; and is topped off with fresh botanicals. Pick from Rose petals, Forget me nots, or Lavender buds. The foaming wash is made with organic castile soap and vitamin E for a gentle and moisturizing cleanser, scented with essential oil blends. I also love that you can get an essential oil body mist at Emanate Essentials. That isn't something I often see with brands that sell essential oil fragrances. Sometimes I want something lighter to spritz on, and this is the way to go!

I've featured leather earrings a few times already, and I'm sure I will many more times in the future. They're just so perfect for achieving a big impact without the weight of typical statement earrings. The leather earrings at LiviBell Boutique come in beautiful colors and unique patterns. I absolutely adore these new Floral Drop Circles. It's the perfect dark floral print for Fall. For a versatile pair you can wear anytime of the year, go with metallics. These angled bar metallic leather earrings would look so great with both casual or dressy looks and could be boho-chic for Summer or glam for the holidays.

Though at LiviBell Boutique you can find a few more styles in addition to the leather earrings. Owner and designer Sherry creates beautiful dangle and stud earrings out of fabric, as well as statement earrings made with cork. I love a great statement stud, but my sparkly and metallic stud earrings don't always go with my outfits. These fabric studs are such a fun and colorful option! Many of the styles I've mentioned are currently are part of their big 20% OFF Labor Day Sale this weekend, so you can stock up on several pairs!

And finally, for the ultimate #selfcaresunday, you can't go wrong with Self Ceremony! They believe that self care is a ceremony with yourself, and I couldn't agree more. For me self care is about deciding I want to take a quiet bath or rest with a face mask and magazine, not because I earned it, but because I deserve it, and because I need it in order to maintain a healthy balance. At Self Ceremony, they provide self care with a collection of crystal and plant-based products that facilitate your natural ability to harmonize body, mind, and spirit. They offer everything from crystal pipes and herbal smoking blends to crystal skincare tools and crystal yoni wands

My most favorite item they have is the beautiful jade mask. I get a lot of eye strain and headaches and have often used my small jade roller to relieve the pain and puffiness. Though it only last for a short time and only covers a small area. It would be so soothing to chill one of these masks in the fridge then lay it over my eyes after a long day of looking at screens. Another crystal beauty items I've had my eye on lately is the jade comb (pictured above). It's not just a beautiful comb; with the addition of a nourishing hair oil, it can help promote healthy hair growth, release tension and tightness, reduce dandruff, and assist you through headaches and migraines. And mark my words, this Insta-worthy beauty tool will soon be all over Instagram!
