    School sports tote | Sheknows.com - supplies

    Supplies:

    • T-shirt
    • Scissors
    • Needle and thread (or sewing machine)
    • Pins

    1. Chop the sleeves

    School sports tote | Sheknows.com - step 1

    Lay your T-shirt on a flat surface. With your scissors, carefullly cut the T-shirt at the sleeves where they are sewn to the body. Do this on both sides.

    2. Cut away the collar

    School sports tote | Sheknows.com - step 2

    Next carefully cut below the collar in a "U" shape.

    3. Turn inside out and pin

    School sports tote | Sheknows.com - step 3

    Turn the T-shirt inside out and pin the bottom of the T-shirt along the hem. (I've used red just for visual purposes, but you should use a thread color that matches your shirt.)

    4. Sew it up

    School sports tote | Sheknows.com - step 4

    Sew along the bottom of your t-shirt.

    5. Add shape

    School sports tote | Sheknows.com - step 5

    This step isn't necessary, but it gives your bag a flat bottom. I find it also gives a nicer shape to the bag. Match the bottom seam along with the side seam and it will make a point with the corner of the bag. Sew a seam perpendicular to the first seam. Repeat on the other corner of the bag.

    6. Turn inside out and use

    School sports tote | Sheknows.com - step 6

    Turn your bag inside out and now it's ready to use. Bring it to your next home game as fun sports bag to show off your school spirit.

    Free People Teddy Bear Pullover

    (Freepeople.com, $128)

    About face sweater

    Honestly, who wouldn’t want a sweater named after a teddy bear? It sounds so comfy and it is. Not only does this Free People pullover feel fab on your skin, it also pairs perfectly with practically everything, from harem pants to skinny jeans and even a maxi dress. Simply throw on some ankle booties, a wool fedora and some statement jewelry and you're ready to rock and roll.

    Wildfox Fox Hunt Roadtrip Sweater

    (Wildfox.com, $118)

    Zara mint sweater

    No fall road trip is truly complete without a snuggly sweater. And we must say, this foxy top definitely takes the cake when it comes to comfort. It's extra long (the better for curling up in the car in), very fall-friendly and made in the softest vintage varsity fabric we've ever felt. Seriously, you're never going to want to take it off, like ever.

    Olive & Oak Textured Cropped Sweater

    (Piperlime.gap.com, $69)

    Olive and oak

    The crop top trend is still going strong for fall. However, you don't have to bare your belly to snag the style, believe it or not. Simply layer a classic cropped sweater, like this black and white striped one, over a denim button down chambray shirt. Team your top with some skinny jeans and riding boots for a really relaxed look that's equally as fashion forward.

    About Face Sweater

    (Modcloth.com, $50)

    About face

    Get in the spirit of Halloween or just let your inner grunge girl shine in this chic, shark-tail sweater with a huge skull on the front. It's great for lazy fall days, haunted houses and bonfires with your boos on a Friday night. Our favorite way to style it? With stretchy black leggings and a cup of Joe, of course.

    Zara Mint Sweater

    (Zara.com, $80)

    Zara mint sweater

    Bring sexy back in an unexpected way for fall when you slip this insanely comfy oversized sweater on over your head. It's got a gorgeous teardrop opening with a basic bow in back that reveals just a sliver of skin so you won't get the chills. We're dying to add it to our bags now.

    Ecote Patchwork Yarn Pullover Sweater

    (Urbanoutfitters.com, $79)

    Ecote patchwork yarn pullover sweater

    Patchwork denim is really in right now, but if you're not brave enough to go the whole funky jean route, why not put a twist on the trend with a sweater? This chunky boho patchwork pullover is the epitome of snuggly and looks so cute paired with ripped up boyfriend jeans and an oversized bag.

    Tracy Reese Chevron Stitch Cardigan

    (Anthropologie.com, $348)

    Tracy Reese Chevron Stitch Cardigan

    If this bright yellow belted cardi doesn’t make you want to curl up in front of a fire with your favorite book in hand then we don't know what will. The draped fit is extremely flattering and the color is totally to die for; it's pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

    To make sure this formula is all-natural, use a pure mineral foundation such as BareMinerals or Pur Minerals, as they are made up of naturally occurring minerals mined from the earth like zinc oxide, iron oxide, titanium dioxide, mica and ultramarine. Then ground up into fine particles and used to make powders and foundations. These minerals provide not only pigment, but also sun prote­ction and anti-inflammatory effects.

    As for your moisturizer, look for one that is made from organic and natural ingredients. One of my favorites is Burt's Bee's Radiance Day Cream. This foundation formula will really work with any moisturizer, but make sure the loose foundation you use is a mineral formula so the pigments will blend evenly to act like a true liquid foundation.

    Materials and tools:

    All natural homemade liquid foundation: Materials

    • Mineral powder foundation
    • Your favorite moisturizer
    • A mixing brush or spoon
    • A small container

    Directions:

    Step 1: 

    All natural homemade liquid foundation Step 1

    Add a teaspoon of mineral foundation to a teaspoon of your favorite moisturizer. This will create a foundation with medium coverage. If you're looking to create a liquid foundation with lighter coverage, simply use more moisturizer, and if you're looking to create a concealer or liquid foundation with more coverage, simply add a little more mineral powder. You can also customize your shade by using a mixture of different shades of mineral foundation.

    Step 2:

    All natural homemade liquid foundation Step 2

    With your mixing brush, gently mix the 2 ingredients together for a few minutes to create a creamy foundation.

    Step 3:

    All natural homemade liquid foundation Step 3

    Place your new liquid foundation in a small plastic container. Keep in mind that because there are no preservatives you'll have to use your liquid foundation within a few days of making it.

    Step 4:

    All natural homemade liquid foundation Step 4


    Apply your newly made liquid foundation with a foundation sponge or foundation brush as you would regularly.

    Take a good look at the beauty and fashion products, in particular. You're likely to see more than one product beckoning your purchase with the promise that doing so will support breast cancer research and awareness.

    Do pink products really count?

    This trend got me thinking — does purchasing lip balm really fight cancer? I spent $97 on these breast cancer products to find out.

    Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil

    Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil

    For every $10 bath oil purchased, Avon will donate $1 to charity. This brings my total giving so far to $1.

    Essie Mini Cube Nail Polish

    Essie Mini cube

    This $17 set of pink nail polish promises to fight cancer. How? By raising awareness through its vibrant pink hues. I found no mention of charitable giving, which keeps my total giving at $1.

    Philosophy Shower for the Cure Shampoo

    Philosophy Shower for the Cure Shampoo

    Philosophy promises to donate 100 percent of the proceeds from its $20 shampoo to charity. Generously assuming proceeds are $15 on this pricey shampoo, that brings my giving to $16.

    Alex + Ani Arms of Strength Bangle

    Alex + Ani Arms of Strength Bangle

    This lovely $28 bangle bracelet is made by company Alex + Ani, which will donate 20 percent of its October bangle sales to support survivors. That's about $6, so I've now given $22 total.

    Tweezerman Precision in Pink

    Tweezerman Precision in Pink

    These admittedly-amazing tweezers are $22, and the company promises $1 to charity for each purchased item — which brings my charitable giving grand total to $23.

    Making sense of dollars and cents

    OK, so $23 of my $97 went directly to charity. That's not so bad, right? Not so fast, says nonprofit consultant Rita McWaters of Fort Worth, Texas. According to McWaters, the bottom line on my direct support for cancer patients is further eroded by the day-to-day management of charitable organizations. "Most charities spend roughly 75 percent of their budgets on programs and services, but at least 25 percent typically goes to overhead," she explained. That means that my $23 to support cancer patients has now dwindled to $17.25.

    It's hard to ignore the facts. If I had given my $97 directly to a breast cancer charity rather than funneling through a for-profit company, I could have reasonably expected that $73 would directly support awareness, research or support services for survivors. Instead, my $97 only yielded $17 of direct support.

    "I have noticed there is a trend for people and companies to start online campaigns in which they ask people to pay them money and in turn, they will donate the money to charity," said McWaters. "I also see people claim to support a particular cause, but in reality they are profiting, or if they do donate, it is such a small percentage it is almost worthless." Her advice? Ask questions and buyer beware.

    While I agree that every dollar counts, next time I'll put down the breast cancer lip balm so I can make my $97 dollars speak more loudly.

    The options are endless. Graffiti is groovy. Stripes are classic. Tribal is edgy. Floral is feminine. Get inspired by the animal kingdom. Try a leopard cardigan with jeans. Add a racy zebra pump to a black dress. A faux snakeskin belt delivers contrast. Though high-fashion mags tout stripes paired harmoniously with florals, with a paisley accent, this look is tough to pull off unless you are six feet tall and hail from Sweden. For most women, it is easiest to take one printed piece and mix it into a monochromatic base. Keep the look balanced by pairing a print top with a neutral bottom and vice versa. There is beauty in simplicity.

    Some guidelines: If you are smaller, you can wear explosive, large-scale prints. The larger you are, the smaller the print should be. Horizontal stripes widen the silhouette so they complement women who are slim. On the other hand, vertical stripes elongate the silhouette so they are universally flattering.

    Remember: There is beauty in simplicity. Here are seven ways you can add fab prints to your wardrobe this fall.

    Here's some inspiration for you.

    1. Try a tribal cardigan

    This is a great look for day or night. It's super easy to do and adds a quick pop of color to any regular manicure.

    Dramatic flip manicure

    This look is a more dramatic version of the flip manicure. It features a longer nail length embellished with nail crystals. To achieve a longer nail length with a dramatic effect, I've used the assistance of press-on nail pieces.

    Materials:

    Dramatic flip manicure: Materials

    • Press-on nail pieces that are medium to long in length
    • Nail glue
    • A contrasting color of polish
    • Nail gems/crystals

    Tools:

    • Nail file
    • Nail brush

    Directions:

    Step 1: Prepare your nails

    Dramatic flip manicure: Step 1: Prepare you nails

    Prepare your nails by trimming them down. You'll want to clip them as short as possible so they will remain hidden under the press-on nails once they are applied. Smooth and file nails.

    Step 2: Prepare your nail pieces

    Dramatic flip manicure: Step 2: Prepare your nail pieces

    File and shape your press-on nail pieces so they fit snugly over your natural nail bed.

    Step 3: Paint the backs of your press-on nails

    Dramatic flip manicure: Step 3: Paint the backs of your press on nails

    Using a contrasting nail polish color, paint the backs of your nail pieces with 2 coats of polish and allow 10 to 15 minutes to dry.

    Step 4: Decorate your nails

    Dramatic flip manicure: Step 4: Decorate your nails

    Decorate the tops of your nail pieces with nail gems. Use a drop of nail glue to adhere the crystals and finish off with a top coat to keep them secure.

    Step 5: Decorate the backs of your nail pieces

    Dramatic flip manicure: Step 5: Decorate the backs of your nail pieces

    Keep in mind how much of the nail tip you will have extending past your regular nails while decorating the back side of your nail pieces. I've utilized a single crystal on each nail for a statement effect. Like step 4, apply the crystals with a drop of nail glue and finish off with a top coat to secure.

    Step 6: Apply nails

    Step 6: Apply nails

    Once your nail pieces are dry, apply them to your natural nails with nail glue. Place a drop in the middle of your nail, press on your nail pieces and apply light pressure for a few moments to adhere your nails. If your natural nails are showing a little, just use your nail brush and a little polish in the same color to blend them in.

    In an effort to help any curvy girls out there who may not feel inclined, be confident enough to show some skin or even know where to get the right costume to do so... this is my second plus-size costume roundup for SheKnows and this year I went dark. I am not sure if it's that I'm feeling broody or that these just caught my eye, but let's see what tricks and treats I found for you.

    Let's break down the options...

    Sexy cop and firefighter

    If you want to go full Mean Girls, opt for a sexy cop or firefighter. You'll be putting out fires right and left wherever you go. I had some serious shapewear on here, and you can see I let the lace shorts of my shapewear show. Depending on the vibe you're going for, dare to bare what you will. Add J.Lo-style aviators or a helmet to top off either of these looks. The cop costume, complete with all the props you need is from plus-size retail giant Torrid, whose costume options are wide and go up to a 4X, while the firefighter came from Target whose costumes range all the way to XXL (or a size 18/20).

    Sassy pirate and queen of hearts

    Next up is the sassy/sultry style you vixens out there want. Hips and Curves is known for having the sexiest lingerie out there for us plus-size girls and come October their Halloween garb is to die for. Check out all of their seductive styles and find something just right for you. Are you a Queen of Hearts or more of a pirate wench? They've got it all.

    Adorable witch

    If you're looking for something to wear to school, the office or maybe a family party, opt for this adorable witch getup from Target. I love the look, it is flattering, comfortable and affordable. I was in the XXL, but XL would have fit fine, so if you're a 14/16 go with XL or even L, as I normally wear an 18/20. Target has great plus-size costume options.

    Sultry bits and bobs

    Now for a little sultry flavor without going all out, opt for any of these adorable accessories from curvy girl fave, Domino Dollhouse. From kitty cats to bunny ears, they've got lots of sassy bits and bobs to get you into the spirit of things. For my sexy bunny look, I opted for a simple plus-size body con from SWAK Designs.

    I hope these ideas have helped spark your imagination and given you some ideas for what you might be this Halloween. Shop fast and have fun as many of these quantities are limited. I always suggest shopping as early in advance as possible so you have lots of time to try, alter and return. With the awesome return policies that so many of these online retailers have, there is no excuse for you not to look fab this fright night.

    XOXO,

    Marcy

    When I was 16 years old, before running to catch the school bus, I would apply a small coat of mascara and I continued this routine all through high school. As I entered college, I started to experiment with more makeup; foundations, powders, lipstick, blush, and I grew to really love the daily routine of applying makeup and trying new looks.

    Then, I had my first child.

    The routine change was drastic, as any new parent knows. I had swapped out office clothes for dirty yoga pants and my daily morning routine of putting makeup on went out the window.

    Since then, eight years later and with four children, my morning routine hasn't changed much. I roll out of bed after another sleepless night trying to fight my 8-month-old to sleep, dirty yoga pants and a gray T-shirt are my new work-from-home uniform, and my face remains natural — makeup free.

    My husband and children expect to see me this way, but lately, when I look in the mirror, I wonder what happened to that young woman from many years ago. Was that person who loved taking a few minutes to put on her favorite mascara still me?

    At a time where the #NoMakeupSelfie has taken over social media with everyone from Kim Kardashian to Demi Lovato sharing their bare faces, my desire to paint my face seemed like the opposite of a positive movement. My #NoMakeupSelfie had become the norm in my life and I was growing tired of using my parenting as an excuse to stop doing something that legitimately used to make me happy.

    As a mother to four children, I wasn't sure how I was going to find the time or if it was going to be more work than it was worth, but I went all in anyway.

    What I learned when I wore makeup for a week 1

    For one week, I woke up 30 minutes earlier, which wasn't easy when sleep was rare, and I dug through my neglected makeup bag. I still wore the same dirty yoga pants and gray T-shirt, but foundation, concealer, blush and mascara turned my tired face into one I remember seeing so many years ago.

    I continued this new routine for seven days, expecting to give up after realizing the time loss on sleep wasn't worth the mascara, but, to my surprise, that's not what happened. As I woke each morning, I looked forward to getting up a little bit earlier and enjoyed the new routine of rifling through my makeup bag to try something a little different.

    What I learned when I wore makeup for a week 2

    I still wore the same tired yoga pants and stretched out gray shirt day after day, but my attitude was no longer the same. I didn't look as tired thanks to concealer and color-corrected foundation and by looking less tired, I felt more recharged. I was even able to take my coffee habit down to two cups a day from three.

    I found myself in a much better mood, had a more positive outlook and handled the everyday stresses with more ease. I smiled more and in turn, received more smiles from strangers as I shopped with my kids at the grocery store. Happy breeds happiness.

    It turns out, applying makeup was more than just conforming to the beauty standards of our society for me and it was more about showing myself some self-care and love.

    What I learned when I wore makeup for a week 3

    By taking just 30 minutes for myself in the morning, I was able to reconnect with me. It gave me a new perspective that showed me the beauty in the new lines on my face, and, most of all, I was able to rediscover the passion I had when makeup was an everyday, mundane part of my daily routine.

    Step 2: Start designing

    Step 2: Start designing

    Here is where you can add whatever nail art design you'd like to your nail stickers. For this look, I've chosen to go for an abstract splatter look. This is simply done by splattering some polish over the nail appliques.

    Step 3: Make sure you wait between layers

    Step 3: Make sure you wait between layers

    Let the polish dry between layers. Next, I splashed on some black and gray nail polish to finish off the look. Depending on how many coats of polish you've used, wait about 1 to 2 hours for the polish to fully dry.

    Step 4: Peel

    Step 4: Peel

    It's important that your nail appliques are completely dry for this step. Carefully peel them off the plastic bag with tweezers.

    Step 5: Base coat

    Step 5: Base coat

    Apply a base coat to your clean, polish-free nail.

    Step 6: Apply your appliques

    Katy Perry Halloween costume idea

    How to create Katy Perry's Cleopatra eye makeup

    Finished look

    Directions:

    1. Apply a bright gold cream shadow from the inside corner of the eye to the center. I am using Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadow in Gold Rush. You can use a synthetic brush or your fingertips.

    Step 1

    Step 1 2

    2. Next, use a flat brush to sketch an elongated cat eye shape with a purple cream shadow like Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadow in Painted Purple, extending it beyond your eye.

    Step 3


    3. Using your fingertip, pat purple cream shadow on to fill in the area you sketched out.

    Step 4


    4. Now, take a clear glitter adhesive like Sally Girl Glitter Adhesive, and pat a thin layer on the gold section.

    Step 5


    5. Immediately dip finger into loose gold glitter, pressing all over the area where you placed gold shadow.

    Applying gold


    6. Repeat the same process with purple glitter.

    Step 5


    7. Now it's time to Cleopatra-it-up with liner. Using a deep black liquid liner, we are going to begin by drawing our outside wing, creating a diagonal line from the corner of the eye, extending toward the end of the brow. A liner with a fine brush tip like I'm using takes a little more control, so stick with a felt tip style if you're unsteady. I used Wet n Wild Mega Liner Liquid Eyeliner.

    Step 7

    8. Create a thin-to-thick line from the inside corner of your eye, keeping it just above your natural crease. Connect to your first line. Thicken as needed.

    Step 8

    9. Line below your lower lash line with the same liquid liner. On your right eye, you can create the peak at the center and backwards-J shape at the corner. This mimics the eye of Horus, the Egyptian sun god.

    Step 9

    10. On the left eye, you can simply line below, flaring the line out at the outer corner and inner.

    Step 10 1

    Step 10 2

    11. Apply mascara to bottom and top lashes. For Halloween looks, I actually like to use mascara I don't love, instead of wasting my good stuff!

    Step 11

    Step 11 2

    12. Now apply a strip of false lashes. Mine are Ardell Glamour Wispies.

    Step 12

    13. Apply a deep magenta lip color like Buxom's Full-Bodied Lipstick Swinger. A great drugstore dupe would be Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids in Brazen Berry or Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in Sugar Plum Fairy.

    Step 13

    14. Top lip color with a berry gloss like L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Stubborn Plum.

    Finsihed

    15. Accessorize the look with all the gold jewelry you own. You can create a headpiece like I did with a necklace. A straight jet-black wig with bangs will complete your look!
