10 Alternative Christmas Trees

10 Alternative Christmas TreesAs much as I love the smell of a real Christmas tree, my apartment unfortunately just does not have the space. If you’re like me and still want to decorate, but your home is on the smaller side, don’t fear! Not only are these ten alternative Christmas trees rad, but they’re pretty painless to make. And probably best of all, you won’t have to worry about stepping on or cleaning up any fallen pine needles, which is not a bad compromise my friends.

Merry Christmas Playlist

Merry Christmas PlaylistI think like a lot of people this year, I’m counting on Christmas to be the saving grace of 2016. It’s been an emotionally heavy year and I think we could all use some extra cheer. And if you waited until after Thanksgiving to move full force into holiday mode like I did, that means there’s a lot to pack into the next three weeks. Bring on the egg nog, gift wrap, lights, and music please!

Here’s a fun playlist of some of my Christmas favorites. You can listen over on Spotify or here on the blog:

Friday Links

Friday LinksHappy Friday friends! Today is such a big day because it’s the day of the Holiday Maker Fair that I’ve been putting together for the past few months (and we made the news y’all)! It’s been a lot of work and a lot of emails, but I am so excited the day is finally here and I can’t wait to share a recap with all of you who don’t live in Philly. I hope you all have a lovely weekend and while you’re out and about, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

Rum balls are always a holiday staple.

– Peek-proof gift wrap!

– The perfect Christmas cards.

– I want to make these bath salts for me & for gifts!

– Mudcloth gingerbread cookies?! YES PLEASE.

– I’ve never seen a cuter cupcake topper.
