Cookies and Cakes and Pies, Oh My!

Darren Kincaid - Friday, December 04, 2009
Yeah, it’s that time again. The holiday season is filled with all kinds of goodies. I know my favorite part of the holidays are all of the sweets and treats.  Why don’t you give the gift of deliciousness and bake something for your friends and family? Here are some ideas on how to wrap your edible gifts.

Be Eco-Chic This Christmas

Darren Kincaid - Thursday, December 03, 2009
Be more environmentally sound this holiday, and try some environmental alternatives. Yeah, yeah I know most of your decorations are already green, but are they eco friendly? Did you know you can make a wreath out of moss? Or make your own holiday decorations instead of buying them? Here are some more ideas.

Switch up Your Style

Darren Kincaid - Friday, November 27, 2009

Do you have a few items in your closet that are feeling neglected? Of course, clearing out garments for charity is a great idea, but if you wanted to give them a second chance before saying good-bye, and having fun in the bargain, perhaps you should have a Style Swap. While my mom and I swap the same things back and forth all the time, I did attend a Style Swap once, and it was both fun AND I came home with a few new pieces for my wardrobe.

Many mothers already engage in a demi-swap, where they pass on now-too-small children’s clothing to friends needing those sizes for their own kids. But you can just as easily trade a size 12 dress for a size 10 trench coat or a size 8 pair of jeans if you’re losing weight, or find some nice maternity pieces for a future pregnancy. Between different style tastes, sizes and seasons, there are a lot of different possibilities to be had. Those clothes without a home at the end of the swap will still go to charity, but you’ve saved yourself the expense of a shopping trip, too! Make it a party with finger foods and a glass of wine, and you’ve got a great time for a Saturday afternoon!

If you’re interested in the swapping, but maybe prefer it to be a more on-the-side, personal activity, you can still swap online at Swapstyle.

Personally, I think I prefer the social version myself, even if I am not the same size as many of my friends.

If you’d be interested in participating in a swap in the community, make a suggestion below.
