It’s hard to believe that 2018 is on the horizon—and so is the time when New Year’s resolutions are on the brain. As I stare down January, travel is certainly at the top of my list. (Experiences over things, right?) Still, it feels like it’s becoming more and more of a challenge to plan creative trips, especially when the goal is seeking out an experience that’s far from cookie cutter. That’s why I’m excited about this new crop of travel services that are breaking the mold when it comes to offering an original getaway that’s tailored just for you.
Black Friday isn’t even over yet and you’re already thinking about the deals you might be able to score on Cyber Monday— you get top marks, shopping genius! My favorite part about the online-only retail holiday: You don’t have to leave your couch (and since your pants are probably still unbuttoned from Thanksgiving, that works!). But unless you have a perfectly edited shopping list—with well-researched coupons that you already know exist and can be applied—it can be tough to keep tabs on the range of savings that are out there to be had. Things move fast.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays: eating carbs is encouraged, pants can be unbuttoned, I mean it’s practically perfect. That said, prepping a feast for a crowd— and one that involves a tender and perfectly timed turkey—is always a bit stressful. I popped by KTLA with some of the smartest connected kitchen gadgets I know, all designed to take the stress out of food prep and make your Thanksgiving meal is a snap.

You feel the shopping pressure as soon as the first Black Friday subject line arrives in your inbox: What do I need? What DON’T I need? How much of this holiday frenzy can my wallet take?!
After gifts for me (and all you ladies) and gifts for the kiddos, I’m finishing up the week with a list of things you might consider for the man on your list: Some practical things, some grooming things, some libations and some gadgets that he’ll love playing with. My husband lives in the blue track suit below (it’s THE softest thing you have ever felt) and those Chelsea boots look chic yet furry enough for a romp through the snow. Happy Friday, and happy shopping!
After indulging myself with a gift guide full of things that I want myself (how outrageous!) I’m now turning my attention to the kids in my life, who have no shortage toys and things that have captured their attention this holiday season. Here’s just a few of the things that I’ve heart them talking about, along with a few that I might scoop them on — anything on this list will satisfy your smalls.
