About My Blog

Welcome to 500 Days of Style! After a recent trip to my fashion capital of the world, Paris, I decided to amp up my style, and chronicle it on this blog!
Hope you enjoy it, and it inspires you to be super stylish (even on a low budget, like me!)

And, of course, homemade gifts are always great! They're straight from the heart and super appreciated by everyone who receives them. Last year my friend made bath salts (the real kind!) and they were amazing and smelled amazing. I appreciated those more than many other presents I received last year, for sure. Learn to knit, sew, etc.!
One of my favorite ideas is taking a deck of cards and hole punching them all in one corner then putting them on a ring and writing on each card one reason why you love/appreciate whoever you're giving the deck to. It's so cute and thoughtful!
For more homemade gift ideas, check out Ali MacDonald's Holiday Gift Ideas article for the Kingsbury Chronicle here!
P.S. Your parents will appreciate anything... I'd recommend giving them a gift card to their favorite restaurant and letting them have a night out. Or make them a homemade meal and let them have a night in! Clean the house, do the dishes, clean your room for once...Presents don't have to be expensive.

Good luck and Happy Holidays :)
