Date Night Idea: The Adventure Challenge

This post is sponsored by The Adventure Challenge, thanks for supporting the brands that make Mostly Morgan possible. Garrett and I live together, so it’s easy to say every night is date night (and that’s what it feels like!) but sometimes it’s hard to get out of our routines and make a real effort to mix things up. Most of our nights look like dinner, an episode or two on Netflix, playing Super Smash Brothers on the Nintendo Switch, playing with our cats and dog, go to bed.

5 Last Minute DIY Halloween Makeup Looks

I love Halloween. I’m 100% unashamed of that fact. I trick-or-treated until way past the “socially acceptable” age, love Hocus Pocus with all of my heart, and am all about ghouls and ghosts and goblins. Another thing I love? DIY-ing costumes. It’s infinitely more fun for me to get creative and come up with a fun costume with Halloween Makeup and clothes I already own than pick something up at the Halloween store. I have a few Halloween posts coming this year, but I wanted to kick things off by polishing up this post that was originally published in 2015…

Thrift Shopping: A Beginners Guide to Finding Hidden Gems at the Thrift Shop

Thrift shopping can be intimidating if you don’t know what to look for. I used to always see girls finding incredible pieces at places like Goodwill and the Salvation Army.

It took me time to figure out, but I wanted to minimize the learning curve and give you my tips. But first… Why thrift shop?  A lot of people think that thrift shopping is overrated, or…
