The holidays are such an important time for small businesses. The money they make between Halloween and New Year can make or break their entire fiscal year. With so many small businesses closing this year due to covid, let’s try to help give some owners (and boss babes, because I’m very proud to tell you that most of this list is female-owned and operated) some support to see them through these tough times. Below is a list of 50 amazing small businesses to support in your holiday shopping. Please help this list grow by adding your favorite small businesses in the comments.
I’ve tried a number of things to sleep better: melatonin, ZzzQuil, more exercise… the list goes on. Finally, after years of trial and error and nights of restless sleep, I found a few things that work for me. If you’re a “bad sleeper” like I am, hopefully some of these methods can offer you a better night’s rest too.
I know that the phrase “white privilege” can be triggering for a lot of white folks, but we have to be better. That requires acknowledging and understanding our privilege. It requires setting aside egos and feelings. It requires listening and learning how to be an ally, not just doing what we think it means to be one. It requires unlearning. It requires hearing from the voices that are too often unheard. So instead of another white perspective on allyship, I want to give you a list of sources to help you understand what it means to be actively anti-racist.
Cilantro, lime, and tequila combine to make a magical marinade for the easiest ever chicken dinner. How easy? Toss everything in a bag and let the chicken soak up the flavor while you mix up a margarita and kick back… I mean, the tequila’s already out, right?
These are without a doubt the BEST blueberry muffins. They’re easy to whip up, not too sweet, full of plump berries, and have a deliciously buttery, cinnamony crumble topping. They’re healthy (maybe?), so slather them with salted butter, pour a cup of coffee, and enjoy.
So… you’re stuck inside. Now what? Well, I’ve got your solution… maybe. To be honest, this list probably has a lot of films and shows you’ve already seen, but I’m throwing it out there anyways. It’s mostly light-hearted shows and movies because I feel like that’s what I need right now, and maybe you do too.
Making your own juice doesn’t have to be complicated or hard. It’s fun to experiment and see what flavor combinations work and to incorporate fresh produce into your diet. This is one of our go-to juices. It’s packed with vitamin c, is naturally sweet, and has a little spice to it.
My Amaretto Cherry Cheesecake might seem intimidating, but it’s more simple than you might think, and the flavor combination is a real showstopper. The main thing to remember when making this recipe is that patience makes perfect cheesecake!
You know how much I love Amazon, and as usual, they came through for me. I’ve listed my summer haul of affordable finds that I can’t wait to wear all summer long. To see my full try on and get my detailed take on each piece, see my IGTV post!
For Easter this year, I brought two kinds of cupcakes and my spring dress game. I love this blue and white dress, which was made for sunny spring days, and I got tons of compliments on it. Since so many people asked about it, I found some similar pieces and linked them here. Most are in the $20-$30 price range!
