Happy Tuesday, everyone! I apologize for the delay in posting this article. I have been battling a horrible cold for almost a week now. I’m finally starting to feel a bit better; hopefully I’ll be kicking this cold by tomorrow!


It seems like everytime I turn on the TV, there’s some type of negative news emanating off the screen. It’s almost as if there’s nothing positive to report anymore. That’s why I’m taking matters into my own hands and bringing my own positivity.

My wallet’s a little grim, but who says I need to give material things to make someone happy? I believe in experiences and creating memories over materialistic items, hence why I am promoting volunteerism. There are so many organizations that can benefit from an extra hand and a smiling face. Plus, what better way to spread holiday cheer than to give a friendly hand?

Not only do I feel giddy whenever I help someone, but it doesn’t cost me anything; it truly is one of the best bargains I could ever write about. Plus, it reminds me how blessed I am; there are so many people struggling this holiday season–some may be secretly hiding in pain. You never know how such a small act of kindness can affect someone in a big way.

Life is too short to be selfish, so let’s all give a helping hand and spread the magic of giving.

*This mustache scarf I bought from LF, but there are a ton in all different colors listed online! I wore that scarf over a black cashmere sweater; here’s one by J. CREW for an awesome price!
