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 a brand new Friday Finds! I hope you enjoyed this month's Fall beauty edit that I shared earlier this week, and I look forward to sharing more seasonal beauty picks as well as more Fall fashion and holiday decor. This week's picks include a wide variety; from the cutest Halloween dog toy and Halloween mugs and as always some wonderful beauty picks for the perfect relaxing weekend. I don't know how the weather is where you're at, but for us, the air is chilly and we have been having so many grey rainy days. It's the perfect weather for staying in and shopping online. Enjoy!

First, let's look at that adorable Halloween dog toy. At Sweet Beest, where they design pet toys for the modern home, you'll find a nice selection of rope tug toys and fun squeaky toys. Inspired by a love of their pets, home decor, and textiles; the products at Sweet Beest are designed with modern patterns, high-quality fabrics, and natural materials that are better for your pup.

Of course the dog toy that is trending the most right now is this super cute Halloween ghost dog toy. I mean, how cute is that?! This little guy even has a name...Pepe Le Boo! You can purchase Pepe Le Boo with the squeaker added, or you can get it as-is if you don't like the squeaky noise. I think my German Shepherd Emma would love to play with this cute ghost. In addition to the dog toys, they offer chic dog collars and leads, so be sure to browse around.

Up next is something I just can't get enough of - mugs! The holidays are so much more enjoyable with a warm cup of coffee in a festive mug, don't you think? The fun Halloween mugs at Second Calling Creations in particular are so perfect for the season. Creator and owner Emily sees the shop as just that - her second calling. Though her full time job is in Youth Ministry, through Second Calling Creations she gets to fulfill her other calling of sharing her gifts and creations with the world.

Her creations for Fall are so fun and cute, and there is such a wide variety. From witch-themed mugs to these cool Michael, Jason, and Freddy Halloween movie-themed mugs to plenty of cozy Autumn mugs; it's impossible to pick a favorite. Though if I had to narrow it down, I'd probably go with one of her Hocus Pocus mugs and this funny "Nightmare Before Coffee" mug. Check out all of their seasonal mugs and let me know in the comments below which ones are your favorites.

If you need some new goodies for a relaxing weekend bath, check out Soothing Sloth Soap Co., where you can get bath bombs and bodycare products for the ultimate in #selfcare. At Soothing Sloth, they pride themselves in using natural and gentle ingredients. Unlike other bath bombs, they don't use any harsh surfactants like SLS, nor do they use fillers such as corn starch that can cause serious health problems. Their bath bombs incorporate a generous amount of coconut oil and skin softening clays in place of these fillers.

Their new Fall bath and body collection includes 13 brand new seasonal bath bombs; including scents like #BASIC Bubble Bar, which smells like a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Sweater Weather - a cozy cashmere-scented bath bomb with notes of Madagascar vanilla, cedar wood, and amber. This beauty comes complete with a gold, glittery cable-knit pattern across the top and produces a rich blue lather as it foams. Their top-trending bath bombs include Spice Gurl, made with Fall spices and their signature skin-softening blend of clays and coconut oil; and Wanderlust, with clean and woodsy notes of mahogany, teakwood, and bergamot. Personally, I'd love to try the Bite Me bath bomb, packed with scents of crisp apple, orange, and cinnamon.

Finally, a brand I've been wanting to share with you all for a while, is luxury skincare brand Re:Beauty. You may have seen them on my Insta here and there, and you will definitely be seeing a lot more, as I am currently testing their Re:Pair 4-Piece Skincare Set along with several other items and will be doing an unboxing and in-depth review during November. They carry several complete facial care systems for every skin type and for different needs. Re:Beauty believes that health, wellness, and beauty are one; and I couldn't agree more. The plant-based skincare products at Re:Beauty contain their own unique, exclusive blend called Re:Vitaplex, which is safe and effective for all skin types and helps to repair, restructure and re-illuminate the skin.

If I had to pick a favorite of the Re:Beauty products I've been using, it would be a close tie between one of their facial oils and their Re:Fresh Overnight Mask. You guys know I've been all about the facial oils this year, and I've tested so many different brands. Well, I think I've finally found a winner for the upcoming 2018 KCL Beauty Awards, and it is the Re:Beauty Re:Balance Face Oil. Made with ingredients that hydrate, nourish, clear, and calm the skin; this facial oil delivers on so many levels. I often struggle with oily skin and breakouts, redness and irritation. After just one day, this oil cleared up my complexion, eliminated redness, and left my skin super soft. It goes to show that even if you have oily skin, you shouldn't shy away from facial oils, especially not this one, as it balances and clears as well as it moisturizes.

The Re:Beauty Re:Fresh Moisturizing Overnight Mask (pictured above) is my other current favorite. Overnight masks are such a great way to give your skin extra moisture, and this particular mask is cool and soothing and rich in antioxidants. Marine extracts provide a collagen-boosting effect and deep hydration, while the antioxidants reduce free radical damage to heal and promote skin luminosity. Every time I slather this on before bedtime, I wake up with smoother, glowing skin. Talk about getting your beauty sleep! Best of all, it can be used on all skin types, even on sensitive skin. Now is the time to buy, as the Re:Beauty Product Sets are each 15% OFF! If you want to start with the facial oil or mask, use code CLIFTON20 for 20% OFF!
