Holidays with your family are made much sweeter with a few family traditions. Over the years we have incorporated a few Christmas traditions that we love, and I’d like to share a few more. The best part is that these are free! In my opinion, traditions don’t need to be expensive or grand, but simple and sweet. When you think about the best memories of your childhood, they are usually the times that you were most connected to the people you care about. It’s the hygge!

Here are five of my favorite Christmas traditions for families: {read more}

Amazon Cyber Monday Deals

You know I love my Amazon Prime. I also love the Amazon Cyber Monday Deals! We are keeping Christmas presents minimal this year, but I plan on doing most of my shopping this week. I want to just focus on all the fun we have planned for December, and get in more hygge with our family.

A Cyber Monday Tip

I have an extra tip to share with you this year before I get to the deals. Don’t forget to use the coupon app Ibotta! If you don’t know about Ibotta yet, check out my post here. Ibotta has a ton of cash back offers through the app. For example, if you shop on Amazon through Ibotta, you can get up to 3% back in departments like electronics, beauty, health and personal care, fashion and more. The only requirement to earn the cash back is that you need to shop thru the Ibotta app. So make sure you shop and check out through the app to get proper credit for your purchases. {read more}

If you have always wanted to try the online fashion service, this is a great risk-free way to see what it’s all about. Maybe you are looking for something new to wear for the holidays? Or perhaps you could use a few more warm weather things as the temperature is dropping. Whatever your fashion needs, now is the time to give Stitch Fix a try. My favorite thing about this service is being able to try things on at home, in front of my own mirror, without that horrible dressing room lighting! {read more}

How to Add Hygge in Your Life

My interest in hygge started last year when I was in the checkout line at Marshalls. I had one of those thick, faux fur throws in my basket and the woman behind me commented that I would love it, that she had the same one at home. I smiled in agreement and as we chatted, she asked me if I knew about the Danish practice of hygge (pronounced: HOO-gah).

What is Hygge?

I don’t remember exactly how she defined it to me at the time, but she had a serene glow as she explained. She told me about her daily ritual of putting everything down and sitting with her husband under cozy blankets with a hot cup of tea. Just to sit, just to connect, with the flicker of candlelight and a mindset of rest and rejuvenation. Sometimes they would read, sometimes they would rest, sometimes they would just sit and savor a sweet treat. She described the setting, but what I took away more was the intention, and the purposeful connection. Time set aside each day for self-care, for community, and for rest. She told me to look it up, because there was so much more to it than she could explain. Her words stuck with me, and I started to do some research. {read more}
