    Affiliate Disclaimer NewIt’s that time of year again! Gift guides are back! From now until the holidays, we’ll be rounding up some of our favorite gift ideas, mostly in broke-ass budget range (but with one or two splurges thrown in). Whether you’re shopping for your best gal, your favorite dude, your family or yourself, you’re going to find some stellar ideas for everyone on your shopping list.

    To kick it off, we’re getting cozy with some super soft, snuggly ideas. I don’t know about y’all, but cooler months make me a hardcore homebody. All I want to do is curl up with a super soft blanket, drink something warm and delicious and chill with my husband, baby and kitties. So in the spirit of the coldness to come (or that’s already arrived, for some of you!), here are some gift ideas we found on Etsy to make this winter extra snuggly.

    Who doesn't love a little luxe in their life? I think it's fair to say we all have that one friend (or we ARE that one friend) who is gaga over glimmer. Whether it's glitter, gilded or simply shimmery, the love is strong. Natch, I scoured the Interwebz for pretty, perfect gifts for your homie (or yourself) all under $100. Clockwise from top left:  Geometric,…

    Well, here we are! The last of the holiday gift guides for 2014! This particular gift guide might just be my favorite, if only because I was thinking of all the ways I'd use these ideas to bond with my best homies, who all live in different states far from me and who I tend to miss very much during the holidays. While we're all…

    We all have that one friend -- or in my case, all my friends -- who have legit grown-up jobs, but never really shed their love for geekery. My own crew is packed with an archaeologist, a scientist, a creative designer, an engineer, a Realtor, an insurance agent ... it goes on. And every damn one of them lets their geek flag fly on the…

    Happy Friday, BABs! As we're rolling into Thanksgiving Week, the deals are getting really good. Dessy is offering a great discount off their entire site, ModCloth is skimming a bit off the top of their selection of new arrivals and Fanatics has a great sale on autographed memorabilia. Oh, and next week? The post-Turkey Day Ten for the Weekend won't be limited to just ten:…

    Happy Friday, BABs! I fully intend on spending my weekend being as warm as possible, especially if it's going to stay cold like this. But that means it's also a good weekend to snuggle up with my fella and my kitties and get some early holiday shopping done and peruse some recipe for the friends-giving we'll probably be doing at the bar my guy works…

    Yep, BABs, it's that time. It's when we begin to see red and green and mistletoe infiltrate our every being. Our ears start tingling with that all-too familiar chorus of carols and everyone pretends to be jolly while they're secretly uber stressed about what to get for whom and where does one get such a thing, anyway? Welp, as per usual, I'm here to help.…
