When it comes to the holidays, attire can vary upon so many factors. Your location, theme, family, etc. Regardless of the venue, there is the opportunity to wear something that you normally wouldn’t on any old day.
For SantaCon NYC we sampled all of the Deep Eddy’s flavors! My personal favorite is their sweet tea and cranberry flavors. Check out their cocktail recipes here. Some fun drinks include: The Austin Mule, Betty Breeze, Skinny Screwdriver, Marfa Lights, and French 75.

Don’t know what to do in NYC during the holiday season? Rolf’s is seriously one of the most magical places during the holiday season. The annoyance of a small space is immediately overtaken by the decadence of the decor. Once you have taken in the space it feels like you have been engulfed by an entire Christmas tree. No need for the grandiose size of something similar to the Rockefeller tree, this quaint bar is all you need during the holiday season.
When it comes to productivity there is an overwhelming number of resources and products that you can use. Of course the easiest most accessible item is the notes in your phone, Google Calendar or the Reminder app. I personally find myself held to a higher level of accountability when I am physically writing down my…

Shopbop created an exclusive capsule collection to celebrate its 20th anniversary with 20 designer pieces from (20 different designers). Can you guess the name of this capsule? The collection was named The Twenty. How fitting! The collection focused on pieces to get you ready for fall.
When it comes to the SantaCon bar crawl, or any bar crawl for that matter, a boozy piñata is exactly what you need for a pre-game. When the piñata comes crashing open you are not going to find a wine bag or have a spewing mess of vodka come exploding out. Instead you will find the most perfect assortment of alcohol nips mixed in with candy.
· SantaCon 2020 was cancelled rightfully so due to Covid-19, but here is a look at last years SantaCon ·
Yes it is named SantaCon, but you will see a handful of elves, reindeer, even someone dressed as a bag of toys or coal. Even if you just have a holiday sweater or a red skirt, that will do. By all means even wear your pajamas! You will see so many people in onesies. SantaCon welcomes all, well (all with a valid ID of the appropriate drinking age).
When it comes to gifts on a budget, one of my favorite things to look for are designer dupes. A Chanel beanie can run you anywhere from $500-$1,000+. But on the other hand a dupe can be as a cheap as $20.
· A chalkboard menu in my opinion makes such a difference, and is the perfect amount of personalization ·
Giving thanks leaves a special part in our hearts, for both our friends and family. But let’s all admit that its always is a little more enjoyable being able to let loose with a couple drinks after a day of work with your friends, vs. getting the same mundane questions from your aunts and uncles all night long.

When you see someone on Instagram taking photos in multiple outfits on their stories, do you ever wonder where they are changing into these looks? Where are they putting all of the their outfit changes, and how are they carrying all of this stuff around? Ever wonder what time of day they are taking these pictures to have no one in the background?
The realities of changing looks during a shoot is actually a hassled mess. It’s changing in public bathrooms, a pop-up changing tent (what Shelly uses and carries around for us), changing in cars, or even changing in the wide open streets. I’ve done all of these except for change in a car, but a lot of people and influencers have to do this during NYFW.
