How are you? I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend filled with love and laughter. For my fellow U.S. readers, I also hope you’ve since recovered from your food coma and perhaps didn’t come away too much poorer from Black Friday
Hope you’re having a very lovely and relaxing weekend! We started to put our holiday decorations up today, since Thanksgiving is right around the corner (and we usually use that time to help put my parents’ tree up). I need to go buy ribbon to wrap around the tree – did it for the first time last year and loved it!
How has your weekend been so far? I spent most of yesterday photographing/swatching products, and then we had dinner at my parents’ house. Today, I have a full plate o’ editing and writing ahead of me, but I know I’ll be taking a couple breaks to watch afternoon football and play with Mellan (he just got new Christmas toys!). Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!
Today, I’m determined to really march through my backlog of holiday palettes to review. I love all of the opportunities to save money that the holidays bring, but I’m totally overwhelmed with how many palettes I have still to review! I’m thinking I might have to roll out some quick reviews to make ‘em all happen before the holidays are gone. Any thoughts? Hope your weekend has been lovely!
Also, with the holidays right around the corner, one of my favorite places to do my holiday shopping is on Etsy! The reason being is it’s just not the usual place that people I know shop at, so I can get interesting gifts. I’m also a huge, huge supporter of local and independent shops. Though Etsy isn’t necessarily “local,” it feels a lot like shopping local. As an entrepreneur, I really appreciate the spirit and passion that goes into running a small business and doing everything you can to make your lifelong dream and passion a reality. Here are a few of my favorite shops, and you can check my favorites list for more. If you have any recommendations, I’d love to hear ‘em.
If you take part on daylight savings’ time, hope you’re enjoying your extra hour. I’m looking forward to a more relaxing Sunday than I’ve had in a couple of weeks–hopefully spending some quality time with my boys watching football!
