Happy Monday

Just a few more weeks and everyone will be around the Christmas tree opening all the things they requested, or rather begged Santa for! Ho Ho Ho, have you been naughty or nice?!?  I love the holiday season, a great time of the year to reflect on family and friends, and all the good things in life.

Here in America we are blessed with an abundance compare to many other countries in the world.  It's hard to admit, but we sometimes get greedy and forget to think of others.

I've been reading other blogs and seeing lots of ways to spread cheer this time of year. It's great to be a blessing to someone who is not expecting it.  Here are a few ways  you can make a big difference with little expense.

How to Style a Holiday Outfit for Less


Merry Christmas! Tis the season of holiday parties, galas, and get togethers. What better time to show off your chic style, and get on your glam!

 Most ladies don't like to go spend a wad of money on styling an outfit you likely will never wear again. I have to admit I have done this a few times: It's called the "Princess Diana" syndrome: wear it once and get rid of it!

A great diversion is to shop your own closet! This is a great way to save some dollars to spend on others instead of yourself.

Chances are you already have what you need to inspire a smashing look. I'm sure just about every female closet has a little black dress, and a pair of gorgeous heels. These items are great foundation pieces to create the rest of your look around.
