Holiday Gifts You Can Buy Online

It’s Black Friday at almost 3 p.m., and we haven’t left the house because we’re afraid of all the shoppers out for Black Friday! With my fear of dealing with traffic and lines and general frustration, it seemed like perfect timing to share some holiday gift ideas for those who like me, want to buy as many gifts as possible online.

Holiday Gift Ideas that Make Me Smile

I’ve been taking a little bit of a holiday from blogging and social media for a while. December just feels so frenetic with the holidays and the year end scramble at work that I decided to simplify my life.
However, I did want to share two awesome last-minute Christmas (or belated Chanukah) gift ideas with you.

Local Food Gifts from Austin – SXSW

If you are an out-of-towner visiting Austin during SXSW, you might be thinking –DAMN the food here is good and I want to take some back home to my loved ones. I’ll be making a week-long trip in April to DC and NY and wanted to bring some Austin and Texas-based foods for my friends and family to enjoy.
While I have my own favorites, I’ve been living in Austin for a little over 5 years and am in no way an expert on everything that is available. So, I turned …
