Halloween Costumes On A Budget

Halloween is creeping around the corner. I always struggle trying to find the perfect costumes, but most importantly, costumes that I can afford. As a college student, my money is pretty tight, but everyone knows that Halloween is a much bigger deal in college. Everyone is waiting for that bomb Instagram post. So here is a guide I made for you so you can have an easy time and cheap costume for Halloween this year!

Halloween Costumes On A Budget

Scooby Doo

This costume is really simple, but a classic! I looked up what the cast wore and got the same colored clothing as the characters.


Go to Walmart, get you some fabric, and tie up a toga! So easy and so cheap.


NASCAR was bid day theme this year and I had so much fun dressing up. There are so many accessories to wear and it turned out to be very easy to find checkered print clothing online.


Borrow a friend's uniform and BOOM, that's it!

Jerseys and Refs

Someone is bound to have a jersey in their swap box and all you have to do to be a ref is find a white and black stripped shirt.


If you are in Starkville, there is a Military Pawn Shop on Highway 12!

The Purge 

This is hands down my favorite costume I've ever worn! We had a blast scaring everybody.

Jersey Shore

Everyone has either seen Jersey Shore or has heard of Snooki. The cheetah and big hair is ICONIC!

Kentucky Derby 

All you need is a dress and a hat!


To be an angel on a budget, wear white and buy some wings.

Hope I gave you inspiration for this Halloween season!

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

The Heart Wants what the Heart Wants
Where to start...... Let me start with the cliche that life throws us curveballs and what we do with it is what counts.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
