Don't have a lot of extra cash to spend on a Halloween costume this year? Being broke can be scary, but fear not, because Stylehive has some great ideas for Halloween costumes you can put together with stuff you probably already have in your very own home. I love the gold-digger get-up (accessorize a sexy gold dress and heels with a shovel and hard hat. Tee-hee!).
Check out this post to see a slideshow of all the neat and cheap ideas!

I popped into Payless earlier this week to check out the boot offerings, and found two pairs that fit me perfectly. I told myself I'd only buy leather boots this year but I keep thinking about these boots. Both looked great and fit like a glove, which is rare. They fit well in the arch, ample toe room, not too high of a heel, and I could tuck my straight leg jeans into the knee-highs. The ankle boots would only work with tights, leggings or skinny jeans, which makes them less versatile. The knee-highs would look hot with skirts, sweater dresses or over tight jeans. Love that the zipper is on the outside and adds a little edge. Not too much. I'm not a biker, in case you couldn't tell. Should I go back for these? Anyone else buy boots at Payless this season?

Angela from freshMinerals recently sent me a complimentary freshMinerals Kick Start Mini Starter Kit, which comes in a cute little box (doubles as storage, not just for tossing) and includes primer, mineral duo loose powder foundation and a kabuki brush. I put the product to the test, and thought the mineral powder foundation works nicely, and the kabuki brush is soft and well made. My favorite part of this kit, however, is the awesome Smoothing Prep Primer. If you've never tried a primer, you are in for a treat. It glides on so smoothly you can't even tell its there, but it creates a perfect base for your makeup to look even and flawless. I think this is a great kit, and an excellent way to get into mineral makeup without dropping a huge chunk of change all at once.
