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

Welcome to Friday Finds! I've got several great picks for your weekend shopping. You'll find beauty products as usual, as well as some cozy candles and unique Fall fashion. While we are still having days near the 90s here in the Midwest, I am very much looking forward to the new season. The days have been noticeably shorter, and we are just one week away from the first official day of Autumn! Admittedly, my husband and I have already had a PSL, and we have a few decorative leaves and pine cones around the house. And you can bet that as soon as the weather gets below 70, I'll be living in my knee-high boots and sweaters. Pictured above: Corky

As the days get shorter, and it gets darker earlier in the evening, nothing gets me more in the mood for a cozy night in than a luxurious candle. At Half Moon Candle Co., owner Erica creates crystal-infused scented candles; all of which are hand-poured, clean burning, and made with 100% natural soy and coconut wax. Each candle contains a beautiful polished gemstone that you can keep long after you've used the candle. Though with a burn time of 50 hours, the candles will last quite a while.

Some of the scent and crystal combinations, like this Amber and Amethyst candle, are absolutely perfect for the season. An essential oil blend reveals notes of vanilla amber and sandalwood musk, while the Amethyst crystal can cleanse and calm anxious energies as the holiday season get busier and busier. In the Luna Dulce Moonstone candle, you'll find notes of fig and caramelized sugar, infused with Moonstone crystal for inner growth, strength, and stability. As this one comes in a beautiful smokey brown glass jar with a gold label, it's perfect for Fall gift-giving!

The easiest way to update your wardrobe for Fall is with accessories. At Corky, you can find handcrafted wallets and bracelets that are beautiful as well as eco-friendly. Their cork accessories have a leather-like feel that is water-resistant, and the cork is not only a renewable material source but is 100% recyclable as well. It's the perfect natural, renewable, and vegan alternative to leather.

This cute little Corky Zip Wallet is small enough to fit into your favorite tote bag, while this pretty Corky Fold Wallet is large enough to carry on its own as a small clutch purse. Each are available in a solid cork finish, a straight-grain finish, or the colorful flecked cork pictured above. Their cork bracelets also come in several different options. The nautical bracelet for example comes with bronze or silver hardware, and the cork braided bracelet is available in natural, dusty white, and turquoise. I'd go with the colorful fold wallet and the braided bracelets. With prices at $20 on average plus Free Shipping, you can definitely afford to grab a few!

The last shop I want to share with you guys today is one you may have seen on my Instagram, and it couldn't be more perfect for a Fall makeup look. I will be featuring Beauty Professional in a tutorial and on the big KCL Fall Beauty Guide, but I wanted to go ahead and give you a sneak peek here on Friday Finds, because this eye shadow palette is just so stunning.

I received a few things from Beauty Professional, including their lovely highlighter and a very gift-worthy makeup brush set, but if you get one thing from Beauty Professional this weekend, you'll be thanking me big time if you get this gorgeous Smokey Nude Eyeshadow Palette. First, it's so much bigger in person than I thought it was going to be, and the compact itself is so sleek and glamorous...definitely a #giftworthy makeup brand. And the shades are neutral but not at all boring. There is such a silky finish and a warm smokey tint to the matte shades, and the shimmer nudes are great for Fall and for holiday beauty looks. You can purchase it by itself or in a set with their highlighter and cream eyeliner pot. I do recommend the set, as it's a better deal, and the highlighter is equally gorgeous!

Thanks again for stopping by Friday Finds. Leave me a comment before you go, and have a wonderful weekend. Happy shopping!
