BLOGMAS - Easy and Cheap Ways To Decorate Your Room!

i pretty much tend to be a cheap skate and that definitely comes out when i have to decorate for christmas, because what's the point of spending a lot when its only out for the christmas season? so i gravitate towards the shops that have cute decorations, but for amazingly cheap prices - target, walmart, dollar store, etc.

 a great way to spend absolutely NO money (well unless you don't have paper or scissors) is to make paper snowflakes and hang them around. i'm sure you learned how to do this in elementary school, and if not theres a million youtube videos! here, i have them hanging around my light fixture with a glitter snowflake that i bought at target for a $1.

heres another glitter snowflake that i found at the dollarstore! i just placed it on my bookshelf and i love the way it looks, it adds a glam, festive look to my shelf.

this i cannot stress enough - TINSEL! grab some garlands of tinsel that you can pick up for like 3 dollars the most, and it adds an instant christmas feel to the room. you can literally hang some anywhere!

another cheap way to join in on christmas decor is to have a mini tree! (yes, i technically have 2 trees in my room!) mini trees are not priced very high and you can find cheap ornaments anyway! and don't want to buy a garland? string some popcorn!

as you can see, my mannequin has went all out! lights! lights! lights! these make a room look so pretty and pretty much all your need to make your room christmas-y. and a santa hat! you can buy these anywhere and put them anywhere - on a bed post, closet, lamp!

these are just some ways i decorated my room and on a low budget, hope you guys get some ideas and its not too late into the season! i decorated my room pretty much before i started blogmas, but i'm pretty lazy and haven't gotten around to showing you guys yet!

1. (re)decorate my room
2. light up my bedroom with christmas lights
12. cut out some paper snowflakes

BLOGMAS - Candy Cane Cookies!

this is my attempt at candy cane cookies! all i did was make some cookie dough, split it in half and dye one half red with food dye. then roll some little "logs" of dough and twist a red and white one together. as you can see mine are really fat, so make sure your "logs" are thin, or they will look like mine :) but they taste delicious! let me know if you try these out or have made them before, i love this idea!

13. bake some candy cane cookies
19. create some cookies from scratch

BLOGMAS - Yet Another Christmas Mani

yess, i know i'm such a slacker! i've never been so busy in my life, junior year is really getting to me! but i did manage to have time to night to create yes, another, christmas manicure! i attempted to try my cheetah nail art again (leopard nails) but it kinda just looks like awkward polka dots. but i'll take it :) 

8. create and sport a holiday mani ( again :/ )

BLOGMAS - It's Christmas When...

so the weather here lately has caused me to feel like its still fall, and i keep forgetting to be in the christmas spirit! its been in the low 60's, high 50's and raining! this isn't the usual december weather (global warming? lol) for us and i haven't felt like christmas is coming yet! so i decided to take note on the things that make me feel festive to put me in the holiday mood!

1. driving around town and seeing all the lights lit up
2. getting to stare at my christmas tree & decorations
3. wearing my christmas pjs and fuzzy socks
4. starting my homework before 8 so i can watch christmas movies at night
5. my non-stop playing of christmas music (it's a disease)

there's obviously so much more things to bring up the christmas mood but these are the things i took note of during my day filled with gross weather. fingers crossed it gets cold soon! :)
