I am still in shock that the Holidays are already here. 2016 came & went way too fast.
I don’t know about you, but I’v had ZERO time to decorate for the holiday season. Between the wedding, work, & traveling, there hasn’t been a moment to stop by Home Goods for decor. Lucky for me, I tend to go with the NON-TRADITIONAL route anyway. That being said, shopping online for a few non-traditional holiday decor pieces is ideal.
Here are a few non-traditional holiday decor items, & tips for how to style them.
The holidays are all about being cozy, in my opinion. When you think of celebrating the holidays you think of family, friends, wine by the fire, you get the gist. Blankets are just a staple in that scenario. So grab a few super soft blankets to throw all around your house. You can lay them over the back of your couch, at the end of your bed, over your office chair, fold & stack them in front of your fire place or even on your living room floor. This added touch isn’t only super cute, it’s useful when you’re in the mood …
If you can’t tell…it’s A LOT? Like I feel like I don’t even know where to start.
Basically to set the tone, let me tell you about the vision for our wedding.
We wanted a fucking party. Non-traditional. Not too bridal. Dramatic. Intense. Different. JUST REALLY DIFFERENT. On our terms. With our taste. We threw the rules out the window.
Sorry but it’s 2016, I feel like anyone can make the rules?
Regardless. Our vision was 4 days in our favorite place: Cabo. At our favorite hotel: One & Only Palmilla. With our favorite people: 55 of our best friends and family. JUST MAYHEM IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE.
Lots of margaritas. Lots of street tacos. Lots of laughter. Lots of MEMORIES.
WHAT THE HELL IS THE POINT OF SPENDING ALL THAT MONEY if you can’t do it on your own terms?
I distinctly remember The Skinny Confidential Book Launch party. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVED it. But there were so many people there that I didn’t get a chance to soak it in. Enjoy it. Appreciate the moments.
I’m a boss now and I wouldn’t hire me as an employee.
Ya, that awful guys. Embarrassing really.
I assumed I was lazy. Figured that you kind of had to drag your ass through a job. I was uninspired. Bored. Over it.
Actually I’d go in the bathroom & work on my blog while there were customers at the bar…
I would stare at the clock. Counting the minutes until I was off. YAWNING.
The reality was that I was not lazy at all.
I just needed to recognize what makes me happy in the workplace.
Working for myself. Being my own boss. Creating my own strategic future.
For the record, I’ve had A LOT OF JOBS. It took me a LONG time to ‘do’ what I love. Some of these jobs include: working at a tanning salon, hostess, personal assistant, cocktail waitress, a little modeling, teaching Pure Barre, bartender, Pilates instructor, & merchandising in a boutique.
None of these jobs fulfilled me.
Finding something you love doesn’t need to be hard.
For a long time I was confused. Annoyed. Scared even?…
