One of my biggest struggles during the holidays is figuring out what to get the men in my life for Christmas. They say they are easy, but they seem so particular about things, and I also have a fear of getting someone something useless. This year Kale and I decided to give each other ideas so we weren’t completely in the dark, and I think this will work out great! I am really happy I went straight to the source, he also inadvertently gave me ideas for my dad, uncle, and grandpa, so this worked out great! I compiled his list and other gifts for men that I have actually given that went over amazingly below!
Tis the season for holiday parties and cocktails! It’s finally time to break out the Christmas decor, so if you’re just starting or haven’t started yet, I’m here to offer some inspiration for your bar cart corner! I got my bar cart for Christmas last year, so this is my first year being able to decorate it for the holidays! Keep scrolling for the anatomy of a holiday bar cart!
Black Friday is no longer just a day, but an entire week. There’s no more waiting in a line at 3am outside of your local mall until the doors open. No more fighting with a crazy mom over the last Victoria’s Secret PINK pants. It happens, and it’s nuts. While I could ever understand why people did those things, I did understand how exciting it was. I worked several Black Fridays in the mall, and believe me if you don’t feel the excitement when you open the store gates at 4am, you do feel slightly terrified. I think I felt a little bit of both. Though, now you can go online at just about anytime to see the cyber week deals and stumble upon a sale on any site. I listed them below here for you but you can also scroll through some of my favorite pieces!
Holiday style is one of my favorite topics of the season. It’s funny because growing up I only dressed up for church on Christmas eve and my family’s annual Christmas party. Even then I’d wear a favorite sweater or a matching Christmas dress that matched my sister’s, which was quite a while ago! Now, I get to attend events and parties where I need these gorgeous dresses, so I compiled my favorite holiday dresses for any style this year!
The holiday season is full of traveling to see family and friends across the country. If you’re going to travel, might as well travel in style! As usual, my primary concern is comfort, so I opted for a lightweight sweater and my most comfortable jeans! The more important piece of your travel style is actually your luggage! If you’ve ever had a zipper break or a wheel fall off at the airport, you know exactly what I’m talking about!
I didn’t have any plans to buy a pink velvet jumpsuit, but when I found this one during the Express sale, it called my name! It wasn’t until I got it in my apartment until I realized just how much I could wear this pretty piece.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t even begin to think of Christmas until after Halloween. After Thanksgiving, usually. I’m a terrible procrastinator with just about everything, so whenever possible I try to get ahead of things. I’m getting my Christmas shopping started early this year, and Uncommon Goods is helping me out!
