DIY Breakfast at Tiffany’s Costume for a Stylish Halloween

Disclosure AffiliateDIY Breakfast at Tiffany’s Costume for a Stylish Halloween

We are getting closer and closer to Halloween! I need to share another great DIY costume idea. Like our DIY Velma costume, this Breakfast at Tiffany’s DIY Costume idea is SOOOOOO much cuter than a pre-packaged costume you’ll find at your  local costume store or party store. Compile this costume yourself and you’ll super stylish this Halloween and you definitely won’t run into someone else at the party with the exact same costume!

Breakfast at Tiffanys Costume Pieces

Since this costume starts with a black dress that you buy in your own size, you will look so much more “put together” than a party store costume. And you DEFINITELY will be able to wear this dress again. Actually – you will probably end up wearing the whole outfit with the exception of the gloves, tiara and cigarette holder! All of the pieces needed for this costume can be found on Amazon:


Black Dress


Cigarette Holder


Necklace and Earring Set


That’s it! Unless you do want to bring along a fresh croissant for a finishing touch. It might be something good to snack on while sipping champagne. Oh, you’re going to look so stylish!

Ombre Nail Tutorial

Disclosure AffiliateOmbre Nail Look Tutorial

While Ombre definitely isn’t new (we have been seeing it for year on everything from clothes to nails to hair), but its popularity still isn’t fading! Why? Probably because ombre looks awesome, is fun to create and so easy to DIY. Julep has shared a new ombre nail art tutorial that uses colors from their ‘Fall Into Ombre’ Welcome Box – FREE when you join Julep Maven.

Let’s get started!

1. Choose three polishes that blend well together, spanning from dark to light. Not sure what to pick? You can’t go wrong with a deep, opaque color, a lighter shade of the same color, and white. Polish your nails with your darkest color. Allow them to dry.

2. Pour two small dollops of your medium and light colors on a smooth surface (like a piece of wax paper). The two dollops together should be about two-thirds the length of your nails. Use a toothpick or orangewood stick to swirl them together slightly so they mix in the middle, forming a gradient.

3. Dip the edge of a cosmetic sponge directly into your dollops of nail polish then align the sponge so that the lightest color is at the tip of your nail. Press the polish onto your nails with the sponge, dabbing and repeating until you achieve the desired effect. This doesn’t have to be precise!

4. Clean up the edges with our polish corrector pen or a thin brush dipped in polish remover. Finish with a top coat. Voilà!

DIY Velma Halloween Costume – A Costume That’s Unique AND Fits Well!

Disclosure AffiliateDIY Velma Halloween Costume

It’s still a bit early in the season, but it’s not TOO early to start thinking about your Halloween costume!! It’s easy to go to the local costume store or party store and buy a “pre-packaged” costume, but it’s definitely not the best option. If you’re going to a big Halloween party you’re likely to see someone else with the exact same costume and it just won’t be very original!

The other problem with a party store costume is that they are generally pretty limited in sizes and you have to buy everything together – which doesn’t end up well if your top is bigger than your bottom or vice versa.

Putting together your own costume pretty much ensures that your costume will be unique AND it will fit you well. You can also easily tweak parts of the costume to be exactly what you want!

Scooby-Doo Velma Costume

We have a super fun idea for a putting together a costume to let you dress as Velma from Scooby-Doo. You can find all of these items at Amazon and put together your costume in one order!

Red Skirt

Orange Turtleneck Sweater

Thick Black Glasses

Velma-Style Wig

Magnifying Glass

Orange Knee-High Socks

That’s it!The whole thing should run you under $100 and you will have several pieces that you will be able to repurpose again – especially the cute red flats! Put together that outfit and you’ll be the smarter crime solver at the party. Just be sure to brush up on some classic Velma sayings like “Jinkies!”!

ScarAway Scar Repair Gel Review + Reader Giveaway

Sample DisclosureScarAway Scar Repair Gel sample


Many of us can find some sort of scar from a scrape, injury or mishap that has happened at one time or another.  It would be nice if we could get by without ever having injuries but usually at some point in life something is bound to happen… and leave a mark that we wish we didn’t have.

My husband has an adventurous story about when he raced my nephew up the ladder of a silo. He caught his arm on the metal ladder and it left a scar. Luckily there are amazing products like ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel that can help make scars so they are NOT the center of a conversation.


The first thing that we liked is that the Gel does not have a strong smell to it and is orderless.  We also liked that it does not have a color, ’cause who wants to look like they are covering up a scar and wearing makeup? More important is – who wants the Scar to be the first thing people notice?  If you have a scar and prefer it NOT to be the first impression people see for you, then try ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel.IMG_1257

ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel, featuring patented Kelo-cote® technology, carries the only patented, transparent, self-drying 100% silicone gel designed to improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal or excessive scar formation.

  • The elegant, transparent gel offers convenient application for custom scar prevention and treatment that can begin the moment a wound has healed or sutures are removed.
  • Results can be seen in as little as two to three weeks; full results may be seen in 60-90 for new scars and 90 days or more for older scars.
  • For the treatment and prevention of abnormal scars of various sizes and locations, including hypertrophic (red and raised) and keloid scars.
  • Effective on old and new scars.
