Sleigh Your Holiday With These Last-Minute DIY Decor Tips

DIY

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Even though Christmas is right around the corner, you still have a chance to decorate your home for the holidays!


Ranging from studio apartments to spacious condominiums, The Vogue Room is here to kickstart your home's decor transformation. You can SLEIGH your holiday vibe in any living space without breaking the bank! Here are a few ways you can Deck-the-Halls based on three varied dwelling types:

1 or 2 Bedroom Luxury Living

This set-up is ideal for The Over-The-Top Fashionista. She is the life of the party and enjoys hosting gatherings at her place - especially for the holidays. One bedroom? Two bedroom? This fashionista does not allow either to limit her style choices. For a smaller space, we recommend a tree standing at around 6.5 ft. This tall number should be the centerpiece to her lavish vision. How should she style the tree?

  • Designate a theme.
  • Assemble products based on that theme.
  • Since she's fancy, we're going to assume the fashionista will have faux fur or ribbon included in those products.
  • Add the faux fur or ribbon.
  • Add chic ornaments; size doesn't matter.
  • Add florals and sprays.
  • Unionize the look with a captivating tree topper!

The rest of the living space is now ready to follow suit with the tree's theme.

Studio Apartment Living

This space belongs to The Simplistic Chic Professional. She doesn't care to be the center of attention. Her space is under 700 sq ft: it's cozy, sensible, and pragmatic. But, style still rules this lady's quarters. Now, a 6.5ft tree may not be best suited for this Chic Professional and her space. But a few simple addons sprinkled throughout can really set off some holiday cheer. Here is how our Utilitarian Queen should play-up her home's feng-shui:

  • Pinpoint a small nook in her space.
  • Lay a foundation. Be resourceful! She should use products already in-house. A bar cart, casual dresser, or lightly used cabinet can be her base items for design.
  • Add a petite tree. The perfect adornment for this humble abode. A 2-3ft tree should do the trick. Of course, don't be shy about adding cutesy little ornaments.
  • Accessorize with inexpensive nick-nacks like stockings, figurines, old jewelry, and quirky antiques.
  • GET LIT! Throw on some safe lighting fixtures for that final dazzle!

Roommate Living

She is a Modern Woman. Curtailing long-term commitments to chase her dreams, this lady is a free-spirit. The Modern Woman is either in college or an artist looking to strike it big on her talents in the city. Still, the holidays are a priority for her home's mood. How should she continue to stay ahead of the curve in style?

  • Visit her local Home Goods or thrift stores. These places are HOUSE DECORATING GEMS!
  • Grab a few holiday pillows and throw blankets.
  • Jazz up her sofa and bed with these new festive purchases.
  • Spark the atmosphere with some holiday scented candles.

No matter how you live, the holidays can definitely be represented where you live. And you can SLEIGH your holiday style, no matter the size of your space.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
