I stumbled on this really cute jute bag (pictured) that certainly is appropo for Halloween, but also for anytime you feel like rewarding yourself or someone else with a treat.
This limited-edition bag is embroidered with a pumpkin-colored "Treats" on the side. Yes, it holds plenty of candy, but it's also sturdy enough for light grocery shopping, even hauling stuff to the gym or yoga class.
And, hey, it's for a good cause. The bag is only $3.99 and proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Also, Sephora at Arden Fair Mall has plenty of spellbinding makeup ideas if you're still pulling together a costume for Halloween. For example:
* For your inner Elvira, there's nail patches in Black Strass ($10).
* Sephora's smoky eye palette ($38) is a step-by-step kit packed with all the necessary eye essentials.
* Nail polishes (each $4) in metallic purple and blue compliment any ensemble. They go great with the store's own brand of Glitter Gel ($10). And yes, it stays put.
By the way, we're hoping the local meteorologists hold off on the rain predictions for Friday. Because it's not a school night, I've got enough candy to sink a pirate ship - and then some. However, if you're 16 and show up with a couple of black face smudges and a pillow case, you get na-da!
