The ugly Christmas sweater party trend has been coming up a few years, and I hope it sticks around a few years more! But. As much as I love a good party uniform, I feel like there should be another occasion to show off some serious ugly sweater fabulousness. In my most humble opinion, the […]

Designer Tree for Under $100

By conservative estimate, I have decorated around 300 Christmas trees, which is a lot less impressive than it sounds. Most of them were designed to sell something or fill up a lobby.
