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.

As the saying goes, there is nothing new underneath the sun. So it comes as no surprise that something as groundbreaking as the graphic eyeliner look trend from a couple of years ago is making its rounds again as a must-try beauty trend for the fall season. Saying goodbye to the traditional thick-wit-it non-floating winged liner and hello to the new wave of if-it's-up-then-it's-up-then-it's-stuck eye makeup looks is the ultimate fall beauty move. It's the floating crease for us.

Reading is by far one of the easiest ways to press pause and escape. Some books are page-turners, keeping you on the edge of your seat with each and every thrill. Other books are filled to the brim with intrigue. Other books are filled with so much heat between their pages, it's a wonder how erotica can almost feel as tantalizing as the real thing. Above all, we can read books for knowledge. It was author Stephen King who said, "Books are a uniquely portable magic." We learn, we love, we fantasize, we feel, and we heal from these portals of hundreds of pages offering food for thought. How could books not be magic?

A couple of years ago, I had significant breakthrough in so many areas of my life. At first, it felt overwhelming to process so much guilt, shame, blame, resentment, and anger. There was so much digging I had to do to understand my journey — let alone accept areas in my life that I felt deprived of and to see the lessons in it regardless. It was a rude awakening to see all the things I was carrying for years emotionally and mentally, and I never thought it was necessary to pause and find tools to work through a lot of my issues. However, this transformative experience made me hungry for healing.

I've got quite a few male friends. Also, because of what I do for a living, I have many male clients too. While there are a billion-and-one reasons why I'm actually grateful to be able to say this, probably my top favorite one is that I get to hear a lot of men's innermost thoughts — things that sometimes they are hesitant to say because they're not sure how we'll take it and/or things they've never really felt comfortable being very open about and/or — and yes, this happens — things they never get asked their thoughts on and so, they never bring those things up.
