Well, hello there!

Question for you: do the holidays challenge your simple, minimal, non-consumer, anti-hoarding ideologies and tendencies? Or is that just me?

I (Jill) usually like to keep my space free of clutter, but there’s something about this time of year that makes me want to purchase and put decor EVERYWHERE!

Personally, I am choosing to push back against this urge by not spending money on unnecessary items that will sit in storage most of the year.

If you resonate with this but STILL want some cozy and special holiday decor, then try these adorable DIY projects with me!

🎄 DIY Holiday Decor

For each of these projects, we encourage you to use what you have around the house (OR buy it secondhand)

📄 Wreath Made From Book Pages. This one’s perfect if you have old books you know you won’t read anymore (or magazines for some fun color!).

☃️ DIY Christmas Sweater Pillow. After your ugly Christmas sweater party, you can make this as a fun cozy couch addition.

🏵️ Orange Garland. This one smells great and looks so adorable on the tree, mantle, or railing! But if you prefer a cool light project, we also like this 💡 colorful ball string light idea, particularly good if you happen to have a lot of ping balls lying around.

Associated with words like strength 💪🏻 and free will 🆓, this flower grows in mountainous regions and is known to withstand tumultuous winds and rains.

But before this newsletter starts to sound too national geographic, what we truly want to highlight is the way Solo Female Travelers are bottling up the essence of the heather flower by changing the landscape for what it means to travel the world independently as a woman.

Solo Female Travelers is giving you the change to WIN a luxury island hopping Greece tour!

They have launched this year’s survey, which is the biggest global annual survey on Solo Female Travel trends. They run this every year to give a voice to women traveling on their own, amplify opinions, challenges and needs, and help the travel and tourism industry better serve women (because right now there’s a LOT of room for improvement and most travel industry decisions are made by men!!) **

The best part? Every completed survey goes into the draw to win a luxury Greek Islands Sailing tour!  It takes 5 minutes to complete— you choose one of two surveys depending on whether you have or have not traveled solo before. 

Until next time,
