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, and welcome to Friday Finds! Today it's all about holiday hostess gifts. It about the time when you may have several seasonal parties and functions to attend, and you should never show up empty-handed. The best hostess gift should be something just for the hostess that he or she can use at a later time, either for entertaining or just for themselves. Just because you may have been assigned a side dish or drinks, you should still being along a special hostess gift.

A hostess gift doesn't need to cost a lot. They can range anywhere from $10-$25, and really should be on average $20. There are so many appropriate options in this price range - anything from a set of tea towels to a cookbook, or something gourmet, or even a little bath and body gift. If you need a hostess gift for a party or dinner this holiday season, you can't go wrong with one of the picks below.

This first one is my favorite, because it's a versatile multi-use item, and it's so chic. This Grey Marble Wine Chiller is just over $20 and would be a welcome gift to anyone who likes to entertain. Even better, it doubles as a chic flower vase...also great for entertaining or simply for everyday home decor.

If you know someone who likes essential oils or is interested in trying them out, go with this seasonal Set of Winter Essential Oils with blends like Cinnamon, Gingerbread, Sugar Cookies, Harvest Spice, Peppermint, and Christmas Wreath.

If your hostess is in need of some relaxing self-care, a simple bath and body gift set is always appreciated. Lately I've been loving the soaps, sugar scrubs, and bath bombs at Lisa32 Skincare. She carries several different seasonal scents like Cranberry Fig, Vanilla Spice, and Citrus Cheer. You could pair a scrub or body butter with a bath bomb for just over $20.

For the hostess who loves to cook and entertain, try a seasonal cookbook. I love how unique and cozy this Winter Cocktail cookbook is. It contains beautiful photos as well as recipes for Mulled Ciders, Hot Toddies, Punches, Pitchers, and Cocktail Party Snacks. And right now the hardcover is on sale for under $20.

Another fool-proof gift for the hostess who loves to cook is a gourmet spice set. This Urban Accents PERFECT PAIR, Gourmet Essentials Spice Gift Set is simple and affordable, and the recipient will get a lot out of it, as it contains two incredibly versatile spice blends. I like how it comes in a nice little gift tin. Just put a bow on it, and it's ready for gifting. 

Whether you're off to a cocktail party or a holiday dinner, I hope this helps you with your hostess gift shopping. You can see more of my hostess gift picks here >. Thanks again for stopping by Friday Finds. I truly hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
