10 Under $10 Costume Ideas For the Lazy Girl in All of Us

These costume ideas are for the lazy (& broke) girl in all of us.

It's a week before Halloween, and (let's be honest here), you REALLY don't want to commit to any one costume (especially if it's over $50–I mean, hello, that's like five trips to Chipotle).

You're lazy. You're broke. You're all-around unmotivated to make it happen this year…and then you find this post, and Halloween all of a sudden feels a little more doable and a little less scary.

Boohoo is my go-to store for sassy Halloween “costumes” and accessories that don't require a whole lot of money–or time–to look cute in.

I've rounded up 10 of my favorite lazy-girl-Halloween-costumes that are not only CUTE but also UNDER $10!!

I, myself, purchased at least three different Halloween-themed accessories from Boohoo this year (that's THREE different COSTUMES) for all under $30.

Remember: You still can look cute on Halloween without looking like you care.

The Bikini Brand That Makes Your Body AND Your Soul Feel Good

The Bikini Brand That Makes Your Body AND Your Soul Feel Good

Salty Mermaid Swimwear x Fashion Hotbox
[This post is sponsored by Salty Mermaid Swimwear]
Merbabes around the world rejoice–because it turns out that the perfect bikini not only makes you feel good about your bodybut also makes you feel real good about your soul.

Yes, it's true that Salty Mermaid's amazingly cheery tropical and geometric patterns will have you feelin' all sunny inside, but what's really amazing about this swimwear brand is how they give back.

For every swimsuit sold, $10 will be donated to a Brazil based non-profit that helps keep the rainforests happy and healthy. They also donate to saving the Rhinos (sidenote: Rhino families are the cutest thing you will ever see). That, my friends, makes my soul feel happy and healthy.

Who knew that wearing a sexy bikini could actually do some good in the world? Well, now YOU do.

Carnival Balconette Brazilian Brazilian Bikini Set ($145)
I've taken these bikinis all over the world with me–from the beaches of Costa Rica for a tropical vacation to the lakes of Italy for a summer getaway…to my rooftop in Tribeca…for an iced coffee. 

I'm telling you guys–sunbathing on my roof in 75 degree weather while wearing this bikini almost has me thinking I'm soaking up the rays in Tulum. This October summer isn't so bad after all.

Check out some of my favorite Salty Mermaid picks below:

These one-pieces are a total game changer for how I think about sexy swimwear:

These two-piece bikinis are tropical, sexy and a must-have for all merbabes out there:

The two Salty Mermaid bikinis I own are truly my go-tos for both tropical (and European) vacations AND chilling out in the sun on my roof with an iced coffee in hand. You really can't go wrong with these babies, and I HIGHLY recommend them for anyone who wants to look AND feel good.

Happy shopping, lovelies!

Redbook Beauty Box Review

It's an exciting day when the Redbook Red Box arrives with new products for me to review and report on! This red box is the “Beauty Edition” (my favorite!), and it includes some cool beauty products that I've been wanting to try out for a while:

1. Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Lite Soft Volumizing & Texturizing Powder ($17.95)
2. Mary Kay Clear Proof Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask ($24)
3. Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer ($10.94)
4. Finishing Touch Flawless Hair Remover ($19.99)
5. MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask ($10.99)

Alright, let's get this review started!

Sexy Hair: Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Lite Soft Volumizing & Texturizing Powder

Rating: 10/10

This product really surprised me (in a good way!). I'm usually underwhelmed by volumizing products. I find they make my hair feel sticky, look oily, or don't work at all. This was not the case with Big Sexy Hair's Volumizing & Texturizing Powder. Not only did it actually create a voluminous look for my “Day 3 Blowout” hair, but also it worked as a dry shampoo! My hair looked amazing after I used it, and I definitely plan on using this product again.

Rating: 7/10

This mask sounded pretty cool–it has activated charcoal in it, which acts like a magnet to unclog pores, and it's supposed to reduce shine and absorb excess oil (all things that my skin desperately needs). I would use this mask again; it definitely made my skin look clearer (I felt like a had a glow!), and it felt really smooth afterwards. The only thing I didn't love was the feeling of the mask drying on my skin. However, I think that's pretty much unavoidable when you're dealing with cleansing masks, so I adjusted my rating accordingly.

Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer

Rating: 8.5/10

I am a HUGE moisturizer addict. I'm the type of person that can't stop thinking about my dry skin if I'm not moisturized properly–to the point where I will GO HOME to get body lotion. So, I'm pretty much the perfect person to try out Curel's new moisturizer. I ended up really liking it. I like that it is fragrance free, both because my boyfriend and I tend to share moisturizer and he doesn't like girly smells, and because I don't like anything messing with my signature Chanel perfume scent (hehe). My skin instantly felt moisturized after I used it, but I did feel a bit of an after-grease on my skin hours later. It wasn't dramatic enough to make me stop using this body lotion, but I will probably just put on a little less next time to see if that will help the oily feeling.

Finish Touch Flawless Product Review

Rating: 9/10

This sleek looking hair remover doesn't just look cool–it actually works. Unfortunately, I've already lasered off most of my body hair (well, no…it's actually pretty fortunate), but this would have been an amazing tool for me a couple years ago for those delicate areas. It definitely won't work on coarser hair, but it works really well on fine hair (facial, arm, etc.) and its REALLY easy to set up and use. I tested it on my arm, and I could barely feel anything. It kind of felt like a soothing tickle or massage–quite pleasant actually! I would recommend this for anyone who has finer hair that they would like to maintain. It's super easy, quick and painless. Check out the video below for my product testing!

Megrhythm gentle steam eye mask review

Rating: 10/10

This was another product that really (pleasantly) surprised me. At first, this seemed just like a super unnecessary product to me, but once I tried it…woah. So amazing. The lavender smell was relaxing; the heat level was just right, and I immediately felt SO chill. I even made my boyfriend try it and he was just as surprised (and enthusiastic). I really loved the product and will definitely use it again!

Whew! We made it through all of the products in the box. This was an AMAZING box–I found at least two new products that I will continue to use and probably buy again on my own (the Big Sexy Hair powder and the Gentle Steam Eye Masks were my favorites!).

Let me know if you have tried or plan to try any of these products–would love to hear what you guys think of them too.
