Have you just moved into a new house, apartment, or loft? If you have, you might already be feeling the fun pressure of decorating for the holidays. There are practically endless ways to decorate your new space for the holidays, whether you choose handmade ceramics or plastic decorations. The holidays are always the perfect time to show others your new place, so you might as well be in the spirit. Here are a few helpful hints when it comes to decorating your new place with holiday decorations.
1. Visit your local arts and crafts store. Sometimes you can derive inspiration simply based on what you see in the store. Take these ideas and try to make them your own—unless you want to follow them step by step, which is another positive alternative.
2. While you’re at the arts and crafts store, don’t forget to make one of the easiest yet most elegant home décor pieces of them all: a centerpiece. They are so simple to make; all you need are a few flowers (let’s go with poinsettias for this one), some candles, and a glass plate.
3. Add accents around your house such as gorgeous handmade ceramics. Handmade ceramics always stick out from the rest due to their highly aesthetic appeal and valuable nature. You could get them in shapes of Christmas trees or in the shape of a reindeer. With handmade ceramics, there are practically endless options out there. Of course, you could always get handmade ceramics which follow the color story of Christmas, such as a piece which has splashes of red and green.
4. Christmas lights are always a fun choice. Most people put their Christmas lights outdoors, but if you can find them in fun colors, you could always ring them through your apartment in a fascinating way. This is an especially fun idea for college dorms or apartments. Just make sure that they are arranged on the walls so that people can make it through.
5. Speaking of lights, there are always those moving figurines with lights in them—for example, a Santa decoration which dances with his bright eyes lit up. These can be fun comical pieces which can add to your new home and can serve as instant conversation starters.
6. Don’t forget about a Christmas tree! There is no doubt whatsoever that you will need a Christmas tree. You can always decorate the tree with ornaments which match your apartment, so it is always fun to go a little crazy. Say your apartment is blue, for example. You can add blue and silver ornaments to your Christmas tree and much more.
If you have found that you are moving into a new place during the holidays, then it’s a good idea to get into the spirit—especially if you are inviting guests over for the first time. If you choose to invite your friends over for the first time to visit your apartment, then make sure to invest in these traditional (and not so traditional) holiday decorating ideas.

Let’s Take a look at the prizes:
Are electronic dog collars really worth the money? Can they instill obedience in your pooch where treats and trainers have failed? Here are just a few of the benefits of e-collars.
If your dog is behaving aggressively at the park, you don’t have time to talk him down or woo him with rewards. You need to act fast before someone gets hurt. The same goes for teaching him not to run into the road or jump on guests: There’s only a small window of opportunity before things take a turn for the worse. Shock collars will deliver an instantaneous surprise to your dog that will keep his impulses at bay long enough for you to re-gain control of the situation.
You can’t watch your dog every minute of the day, and that’s when the sneaky little rats get themselves into trouble. With an e-collar, however, you won’t need to keep them constantly underfoot. The collar responds automatically to their behavior, like no-bark collars reacting to the vibrations in the throat, so discipline is enforced even if you’re not around to see it.
If you have a problem with giving in, with allowing your dog to wear you down through persistence or cuteness, e-collars are a great way to put authority in the hands of an impartial judge. They’ll be unmoved by whining and impervious to puppy dog eyes. They’ll simply do their job and train your dog into becoming a gentle and well-behaved companion.
I have to say, I was so excited to see what Build-A-Bear had for the holidays. I just love working with them and when I heard I could share another one of their wonderful plush and stuffed Bears with you all I could not wait to see what I could pick from!

My husband and I are always looking for a good shaver. I need a shaver that will not give me razor burn or make me itchy and Ronnie needs a shaver that will cut close without giving him razor cuts. Now lets talk about prices.. WOW, my razor blades cost over $14 for 3 refills an Ronnie, well lets just say to much.. Around $20, to much money to pay. That is were 800Razors comes into play. I recently was sent razors for me and Ronnie.
I was really intrigued. 800razors.com has razors for men and woman that compete with the name brand razors in quality, but not in cost. They offer low price razors that you can purchase one time, or you can purchase a subscription and have razors sent every 2, 3 or 4 months. 800razors sells American-made razors that compare to those higher end brands for about half the price.
800 Razors was founded by two men who lost their luggage during a business trip and were forced to buy new razors…not realizing how much they would pay for those necessities. They were shocked! Needless to say, they decided to come up with a solution for much more affordable razors and cartridges without sacrificing quality.
800Razors.com offers 5 blade razor cartridges for women as well as 3 blade and 5 blade options for men. The claim is that their razors for women can be compared to the Venus brand and the razors for men compare to Gillette. Both are the best you can get, at great low prices. So it really comes down to personal preference. Choose the razor and delivery schedule that works best for you.
800Razors.com has a burn free guarantee, Each Razor is backed by a 100% Burn-FREE Guarantee. 800Razors is so proud of their exclusive razor designs, that they guarantee a Burn-Free shave! If you’re not satisfied in any way, they will gladly refund your full purchase, no questions asked!
Each razor is only $9.99 each, includes 4-5 cartridges AND (if that wasn’t enough) includes FREE shipping on every order! So that’s 1 razor + a pack of cartridges for only $9.99 shipped! You can not go wrong with that!
We both loved our razors, Ronnie was super happy with the way the shaver glided over his stubble and it rarely missed a hair. He had no razor cuts and of course no razor burn. I was just as happy with my razor. My skin had such a smooth silky feeling after I was done shaving.
Although the holiday season should be full of happiness, it can be a stressful time. There’s a lot to do and think about, between seeing all of your family and making sure you get the right gifts! Hopefully this checklist can make things a little easier…
Gifts: the Planning Stage
☐ Start out by setting a budget. You might not have an exact number, but come up with a ballpark total figure you’ll spend on gifts.
☐ Next, make a list of everyone you need to buy gifts for. Divide your total budget between these people.
☐ Next to every name on your list, jot down any gift ideas you can think of. You can keep coming back to this as ideas pop into your head (creating a note on your smartphone could be useful as you’ll always have this with you).
Gifts: the Shopping Stage
☐ Start shopping as early as possible – at the latest start right after Thanksgiving. It’ll save you some stress! It could also save you some money (think Black Friday sales).
☐ For every gift you buy, wrap it as soon as you get it home. Never leave the wrapping until Christmas Eve – that’s when you should be spending time with family!
☐ Don’t forget to label every single gift – you might forget who you bought it for, or even what it is once it’s wrapped.
☐ Have a look online and buy as much as you can that way. Do this early so it’ll be shipped in time. This should save you a few stressful trips to busy stores! It also helps you stick to your budget as you won’t be tempted to buy extras you might see in stores.
Additional Christmas Planning Tasks
☐ Check out your current decorations to make sure you’ve got everything you need for Christmas. Ideally, do this before you put up your tree!
☐ Make a list of everyone you’ll want to send cards to, and note down their addresses. Every time you send a card, strike through that name. And if you receive cards from people not on the list, add them as soon as you receive the card so you don’t forget to reciprocate.
☐ Start writing your holiday cards early, so that they’re all ready to mail at the beginning of December.
☐ If you’re hosting, plan how many people are coming over and make sure you have enough cutlery and plates. Now is a good time to set your budget for food and drink too, and arrange with family members who will be taking responsibility for what.
☐ You can even start shopping for some items, like alcohol, crackers, napkins and so on.
When December Arrives…
☐ Now it’s time to buy your live tree if you’re having one! And set aside a specific day to decorate. If your family are lazy about this try to think of something fun that’ll get everyone involved, like games for the kids or food, drink and music for adults.
☐ And don’t forget to mail out your cards!
☐ Now it’s time to finalize what you’ll be eating on Christmas day. Make a specific grocery list and plan when to pick the items up. Remember, stores are packed full and food stocks run low right before Christmas! Book your turkey in advance to make sure everything’s sorted.
☐ If you need to send any gifts by mail, make sure you do this well in advance. You don’t want anyone to be disappointed because their gift didn’t arrive in time!
A Few Days to Go…
☐ Remember, don’t leave anything big until the last minute. Take some time a couple of days before to wrap any gifts you need to, and to clean up in time for relatives to visit.
☐ Make sure you have enough batteries for children’s toys and enough space on your camera’s memory card for holiday photos.
☐ Spend Christmas Eve relaxing, with your family!
☐ And enjoy the big day!
My husband is always looking for the next great groomer tool. He must have 5 trimmers and he is never happy with any of them. When I was contacted and asked if I would like to review the MicroTouch Switchblade, I said why not, let’s see how Ronnie likes this one.
This “As seen on TV” product is a great grooming tool. It is an all-in-one head to toe groomer that is perfect for trimming, edging, body grooming and even haircuts. He immediately liked the MicroTouch SwitchBlade because it was small and used 2 AAA batteries. He has those bulky wireless trimmers and he complains about how heavy they are. He actually loved the feel of the MicroTouch SwitchBlade. Ronnie said that it was much lighter then his cordless one he does use on a daily basis.
There are two sides to get the perfect length. The full size trimmer head is great for larger areas and uses 2 longer attachments. The micro trimmer head if perfect for smaller areas and uses 2 short attachments. The smaller cutter is activated by a push button on/off switch while the larger cutter is activated by sliding the large safety cover up, away from the blade. The small cutter also has a light that shines for those hard to see places.
The body and attachments of the Switch Blade are made of plastic and it is very light in weight. The full-size trimmer is great for trimming Ronnie’s Hair, he keeps his hair very short so it works great on his hair. The micro-groomer is great for trimming hair in men’s ears, nose, neck, eyebrows, and sideburns. He had fun with that one.
The MicroTouch SwitchBlade is a product that he really likes. Even though it runs on batteries it is a great product. We will be taking this along when we travel for now on, instead of his bulkier shavers!
