2016 Top 25 DIY Halloween Costumes

Who needs a trip to Party City or Spirit Halloween store, when you can save your money and utilize a creative mind of your own? Most popular in college and as you get older, more people by the year are creating DIY Halloween costumes. There is nothing better than piecing together articles of clothing from your own closet or hitting the stores at the mall to find items for your outfit. Altogether, whatever you buy will probably cost less than a packaged costume for sell in stores made out of cheap fabric.

Let's be real, as a kid you want the full costume to look as identical as possible to whoever you are being, but once you get older, you start to be more creative with it and learn what's called... being 'cost efficient'. You learn to make whatever you buy more useful; you buy something you can use and wear on multiple occasions rather than just one day and never again.

Every year, DIY costumes get more creative each Halloween and this year, Instagram proves some popular costume trends this year.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
