Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Adults



Every year I try not to put much thought into what costumes to wear for Halloween. I usually just go out and buy one.  Now that I have kids, we have to put a little more thought into it. This year,  my son decided he wanted to be Plankton from the TV show Spongebob. Did you know they don't have a regular plankton costume anywhere?! I almost had to resort to making it myself! luckily my son was ok with wearing the Plankton superhero costume from the Spongebob Movie. 
But he now wants me to dress up as spongebob. And those costumes can get expensive. So I'm just going to do a quick trip to my local thrift store and see what I can throw together. 

If you haven't found a costume for that upcoming thing Halloween party, you can check out my list of easy fun Halloween costumes!

1. Ghost
Don't cut holes out of a bed sheet just yet. Just a little face paint, a cute white beanie and some white clothes will do.


2. Fairy
Whether your a kid or an adult,  fairy costumes are always easy to come by. Or you can go to a local thrift store and make your own!

3. Dracula
I dressed my son up in a Dracula costume for his first Halloween and oh my gosh he was so adorable! I also have an aunt who paints some blood on her lips, puts on a Cape, and calls it a day.


4. Facebook 
If you have a face,  and cheap black eyeliner, you can be Facebook! Just write "BOOK accross your face. I stole this idea from the TV show "The Office". 


5. Princess
Every girl likes to be pretty. So, go all out! Buy a cute dress from a thrift store,  and a crown from the dollar store.  Your good to go!


6. Zombie
I always love coming across good zombie costumes. I dressed my hubby up as one a few years back because we were going to a Halloween party and had no costumes! A little face makeup, And some old crappy clothes your ok with ripping and staining is all you need! 


7. The Purge 
If your a horror movie fan like I am, then you have seen the Purge. All it takes to dress up like a person from the Purge is a creepy mask. You can buy one on Amazon, or find a plain mask to paint yourself! I predilections,  it will creep lots of people out.


8. Wednesday Addams
Get a long black wig to braid,  and a black dress.

9. Life hands you lemons 
Get a shirt and write "Life" on it,  and buy a bag on lemons.  Super easy and clever!

10. Gumball machine. You might need some hot glue,  and a few hundred of those fuzzy balls.. but it makes a cute costume.



One thing I love about not buying my own costume,  is that I can still do something fun and look like I made an effort. I hope you found a fun Halloween costume idea!

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want. 


1. Have a great emotional intelligence. 
Emotional Intelligence is something that is important to work on regardless of where you are in your life. To have or improve on emotional intelligence, you need to work on understanding both your emotions and other people's emotions.
 When your able to identify how your feeling, you are able to control them better. It will help you to be able to step back and look at…
