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! I hope you've had a lovely week. We are definitely ready to relax over here, though our weekends lately usually involve work as well. However we did manage to get in a date night this week and saw Crazy Rich Asians. Ken and I completely loved it! Definitely go and see it this weekend if you haven't already. We also started watching Jack Ryan on Amazon and love it too. So other than some shopping and probably a bit of work here and there, we definitely plan to relax at home this weekend. As usual, there will be multiple face masks involved, and I just might pick up a new pair of comfy slippers. If you're in need of some new goodies for selfcare Sunday, check out the shopping links below. Enjoy!

Mystical Blossoms, pictured above, is the perfect place to add some calm into your everyday routine and especially for a relaxing weekend. They offer everything from botanical body care to herbal teas and handcrafted smudge sticks. And while there are so many items I could feature, today's spotlight product from Mystical Blossoms, a customer favorite, is their beautiful New Moon soap.

While the owners at Mystical Blossoms created it to look beautiful and have moon and sun elements, it turned out to be their best-seller for its skincare benefits as well as its beauty. Their customers keep commenting on how well it has been improving their body acne and keeping their face beautifully balanced. It is soft and creamy with a gentle lather, and has gentle exfoliation properties. New moon applies a moon and sun principle with the choice of polar ingredients. Orange peel powder, calendula infused castor oil, sunflower oil, turmeric, orange essential oil, and gold mica all represent the sun's beautiful radiant energy. Turmeric has been used for thousands of years to treat various skin diseases and heal wounds. The orange peel powder gently exfoliates, and calendula is healing and soothing to the skin.

The moons energy is represented with black pepper essential oil, activated charcoal and the choice of the round shaped mold. It's grey swirl color is mostly obtained from the activated charcoal, which makes an effective acne cleanser, draws toxins out of the skin and helps fight body odor. Black pepper essential oil is also good for the skin, and the gold mica is dusted on to add beauty. Packaged in a pretty recyclable paper, this is perfect for gift giving, though you'll definitely want one for yourself too!

BaeBlu Beauty has been previously featured on Friday Finds, but I wanted to share them again with you guys. Since I first shared this organic beauty brand, I've personally tried their concealer and their Lux Liquid organic foundation, and for the first time in...well probably ever, I found the perfect shade of foundation for my skin tone. Judging by the reaction I got on Instagram, it seems so many of you struggle with finding the right shade too. At Bae Blu, you can order little sample sizes before you commit to a full-size foundation, and they have very thorough color guides on their website. So pick a shade that you think is best, then pick one shade lighter and one shade darker and order in these little sample sizes to find your perfect shade! Even better, the formula is completely hypo-allergenic, and the finish is gorgeous! I have combination oily skin, and it had a somewhat matte effect, but still gave me a natural glow. It was the perfect balance between dewy and matte.

They've also recently introduced new shades in their organic creamy concealers, so you can create a beautiful and natural looking contour and highlight. In fact, I'll be shooting a video exclusively for BaeBlu this month, which will feature a tutorial on how to highlight and contour to address different issues; like how to create a more defined jawline, how to make your lips look bigger and your nose look smaller, etc. I'll keep you guys updated on Instagram whenever that tutorial is live.

Another video tutorial I'll be making soon involves a new crystal facial tool I got this week. I've been wanting a gua sha facial massager ever since I got my jade roller, and I can't wait to show you guys how to use it. The Peace Essential Gua Sha Butterfly Scraping Massage Tool comes in a beautful butterfly shape and is available in jade, rose quartz, or amethyst. It was a tough call, but I went with the pink rose quartz. 

If you've yet to get your hands on a roller, you can purchase this gua sha tool and facial roller set in a beautiful gift box. I do highly recommend the jade roller. I've seen a dramatic difference in the firmness of my skin since using the jade roller, and am looking forward to incorporating the gua sha tool as well. 

Let me know in the comments below which of these items you're most interested in, and stay tuned on Insta for the upcoming vlog announcements. Thanks again for stopping by Friday Finds. I hope you have a most relaxing self-care weekend!
