Halloween is every costume-lover's favorite holiday. Growing up in Canada, I remember wearing turtlenecks and sweats under my princess costumes. The opportunity for it to be socially acceptable to dress up as anybody but yourself for just one night a year is one most of us love taking advantage of.

I was doing "couples" costumes with my girlfriends before I ever had a boyfriend. There was a year in high school in which my best friend and I dressed up as two of the Golden Girls and one year in which we went to Halloween parties dressed up as Iago and Jafar.

This year, we had more time than ever to plan out the most intricate Halloween costumes. But, that didn't stop the procrastinators and indecisive costume lovers in our lives from taking their sweet time to realize Halloween is less than a week away.

Fear not, because the costumes below can be easily pulled together with things you likely have at home or are just one Amazon Prime delivery away.

Curious George and The Man In The Yellow Hat

@stephycogreen_

You could, of course, order a full monkey costume. But, if one person simply wears all yellow and orders a yellow hat and the other wears all brown with a monkey mask, you're set to go.

The Addams Family

@glamdapper

You know that super sexy LBD or pantsuit that's been collecting in your closet? Pull it out, slick back or straighten your hair, and pair with some dark makeup.

Austin Powers and Fembot

@shilawesome

Pair any ruffled white shirt with a suit and glasses for Austin Powers. For Fembot, get a pink babydoll slip and tease your hair for some serious volume for those groovy '70s vibes.

The Olsen Twins

@theolsenhype

This one's especially great if you plan on being outdoors at all (with a mask on, of course). Start with baggy, all black clothes.

Sleek back your hair in a low bun and go really minimalist with your makeup — just pair a glow-inducing primer or moisturizer with a sweep of tinted lip balm, one coat of mascara, and some eyebrow pomade will do the trick.

Sonny and Cher

@qban_od

This one will continue to be iconic for years to come. It's all about the accessories here, and chances are that you own a lot of them already.

All you need is a brightly-colored jumpsuit, long hair (or a wig), wide-leg pants, a vest, and a button-up shirt. Bonus points if you have sunglasses, headbands, and paisley.

Beetlejuice and Lydia

@memphis.and.mara

Chances are, you'll never look as adorable as the couple above. But, by putting on a striped pair of pants and shirt paired crazy 'do and finding someone to wear a red dress, you can at least try.

The Twins from "The Shining"

@halaatyourgirl

Grab your BFF, the old baggy dresses in your closet, and some knee-high socks. Tie a pink bow around your waists, and one ketchup fight later you're ready.

Edward Lewis and Vivian Ward from "Pretty Woman"

@nextdoorlife

Pair your black boots with a blue skirt, white bodysuit, and red coat for ultimate Vivian vibes, then get your partner to wear a simple grey suit.

To channel your inner Anna, put on your most chic neutral-colored pea coat and matching dress and put on a wig or pull your hair back into a sleek ponytail. For Karl, pair some jeans with a white collared shirt, vest, suit jacket, every necklace you own, and a voluminous ponytail tied with a bow.

Top both looks off with your fave pair of sunnies and a copy of Vogue.

Betty and Jughead from "Riverdale"

@savvyjanine

One of teen television's favorite couples, Betty's and Jughead's looks are totally iconic yet super easy to replicate. Pair a mini skirt with a pastel sweater, collared shirt underneath, pearls, and a high ponytail for Betty's preppy look.

Jughead's look just requires a T-shirt, flannel tied around your waist, jeans, and a denim jacket topped with a beanie.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
