I hope you’re having a very merry Christmas!
Of course we can’t put a price on our furry friends, but I will point out that Americans love them enough to spend $56 billion on them last year. Just let that sink in for a minute. Fifty-six billion dollars. That obscene amount of money pretty much proves that a pet-centric gift is going to be a home run, especially if it teaches the pet to pull its own weight in the household. (Seriously, it’s about time Bacon starts earning money to pay for his food. He gets more Instagram likes than I do!) And, while I didn’t include it here , this inflatable cat unicorn horn is pretty much the best thing ever.
As far as I’m concerned, the stocking is the best part of Christmas morning. The teeny wrapped packages! The piles of candy! What’s not to love? I’m guest posting over at La Vie Jaime today to share what I’d love to find in my stocking on Christmas morning. You can also find more stocking selections on Pinterest. I’ll keep adding to this board as I come across fun, affordable ideas.
[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]T[/dropcap]here’s so much pressure to buy a new holiday dress each year and I certainly succumbed, convincing myself that the holidays just wouldn’t be complete without a new satin or sequin frock. After hours of online searching (and a handful of returned rejects), I turned to my own closet and chose this simple black dress. I bought it last summer at Kohl’s and was grateful for the breezy style on those sweltering days. I even brought it to Belgium with me, wore it in Amsterdam, and donned it on the plane home. I never expected that it would be such a pretty canvas for Gerard Yosca’s holiday jewelry (check back tomorrow for a special holiday giveaway!). I added my favorite pumps and a matching mani for a bit of playfulness and made sure to adhere to each of Gerard’s tips for refined holiday dressing.
