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.

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.

4933

Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.

How The 'Friends' Theme Song Is Actually Describing 2020 — And It Couldn't BE More Accurate

This isn't our day, our week, our month, and definitely not our year...

Everyone knows the iconic Friends theme song and although we may have joked in previous years how relatable it is, here's a breakdown of the lyrics and how they are so 2020, we might never be able to listen to it again after 2020.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.
