10 Pretty Halloween Costumes for Under $20

All Hallows' Eve, Halloween, All Souls Day, Hallomas—no matter what you call it, it's a highly-celebrated event in the United States. Halloween, in my opinion, is one of the best holidays of the year. It's a day when we all get the chance to shed our daily identities and choose to be whomever or whatever we please. We enjoy delicious food, sweet treats, and time with friends and family.

As with all things, however, there is a drawback; Halloween can be expensive. Between candy, costumes, and food, All Hallows' Eve can put quite a dent in your bank account. Fortunately, it doesn't have to. To help you save money this year, I've compiled a list of 10 Pretty Halloween Costumes for Under $20.

Halloween DIY: Spooky Floating Candles Tutorial

Who's tired of this horrible August heat? I know I am!

That's why I'm getting into the "Falliday Spirit" (yeah, I made that up), hoping that I can maybe get Autumn to creep up on us just a little more quickly. I've already invested in fall-scented wax melts like Dutch Apple Pie, Pumpkin Spice, and Salted Caramel, and I've busted out the box of Halloween decorations! And lucky for you, dear reader, I've also started on my fall crafts and tutorials, like this incredibly Easy Monogrammed Fall Wreath.

Today, I'm sharing with you this Halloween DIY project for creating a Spooky Floating Candle!

5 Health Benefits of Using a Pedometer + Ozeri 4x3sport Tri-Mode Activity Tracker Review

The true key to getting healthy is to make small changes, one day at a time, one week at a time, or even one month at a time. It's all about your pace. Make one change, and when you feel that you're ready, make another! It's really that simple. And one super easy change to make is to walk more!

Walking has so many benefits. Aside from maintaining a healthy weight, walking can also prevent or manage numerous health conditions (such as high blood pressure or heart disease), strengthen your muscles, and improve balance and coordination.

If you're thinking about adding walks to your daily routine, a great way to get started is by investing in a pedometer.

Never Lose Your Pictures Again! Create Your Own Quality Keepsake Photo Books

In this day and age—the era of technological advances—people are comfortable having their most cherished photographs in the palm of their hands. And by the "palm of their hands," I mean on their smart phones. While technology has made it possible to store loads of information and files on small handheld devices, it's also caused us to lose many of our most prized pictures.

Don't let that happen to you. Freeze your images in time by having them printed in photo books!

Super Easy Way to Clean Your Microsuede/Microfiber Sofa for Under $1

About a year and a half ago, my husband and I scored a $200 sofa and love seat on Craigslist. After thoroughly checking the couches for any signs of bed bugs, we hauled them off to our home. The sofa and love seat are both huge, comfortable, and durable. It was a great price for furniture that will last us for quite some time.

The only downside is that the sofa and love seat are microfiber. With two young children, that means that they tend to get dirty rather quickly. At one point, I thought the microfiber was wearing away but after rubbing my nail along the fiber, I realized the fiber wasn't wearing away at all. In fact, the fibers were simply covered in dirt and grime that had accumulated over the year.

Things To Do in Miami County, Ohio: Charleston Falls Nature Preserve

As a child, I remember visiting the Charleston Falls Preserve, located in Miami County, Ohio. As an adult, I wanted my children to love the place as much as I did, so I began taking them there to walk the trails, see the falls, and check out the cave.
