Our countdown to Halloween has begun, are you ready? If you're a last minute gal like me, this is all you need to read to have a spooktacular Halloween this year!  In a perfect world, I would start planning my decorations and party treats ahead of time, but this is the real world and getting errands done usually trumps looking for the yummiest smelling pumpkin candle and cutest jack-o-lantern.  Whether you're hosting a party, attending one or taking to the streets in search of full sized candy bars, I am going to give you last minute ladies a few quick and easy Halloween ideas.

One of the best parts about Halloween is all of the yummy treats!  I found some super simple recipes that are perfect to bring in to class, wrap up as party favors, or even just to have a little somethin' to nosh on at home.

I never realized how easy it was to make a costume out of the cute clothes I already have!  Take a look through your closet and don't stress if you don't have a complete outfit right away...there's always the dollar store, Target, Forever21 and lots of other stores you can get that missing piece (or the whole thing) and be able to wear it normally afterward! 

So, there you have it!  6 more days, and now you've got everything you need to have a
