DIY: Easy Costumes for Halloween


Is it just me, or does it become increasingly harder to figure out what you’re going to dress up as as the years go by? And what’s up with the price tag? The repertoire consists of all the usual costumes: from the range of occupations, to animals, to superheroes and everything not-meant-to-be-sexy-turned-sexy in between. There’s only 2 days left, and in standard procrastination fashion, I have yet to decide what to dress up as. If you’re in my boat, maybe you can benefit from some of these easy DIY costumes consisting of things you probably already have in your closet.

DIY Avocado Face Masks

If I had to survive with only one type of food for the rest of my life, I would choose Avocado! Avocados are so yummy to eat, very filling, beneficial to your health and also an excellent natural beauty product! Guatemala produces heaps of avocados. Guatemalans consume so many avocados that they are known as “panza verdes” (green bellies.) Avocados are sold in the markets, on the street and you might even be lucky enough to have one in your backyard or have a friend with a blooming tree! Avocados contain over 25 vital nutrients – vitamins A, B, C, E, and K and minerals – copper, potassium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Avocados are one of the most healthiest natural ingredients on earth, they are even considered to be a complete diet for babies. I made two amazing avocado based face masks that are super hydrating and will leave you glowing! Continue reading
