Happy December 1 and welcome to the start of an almost month long collaboration I’ll be doing with five other fabulous bloggers called Countdown to Blogmas. When Marissa reached out with the idea, I was so thrilled – and when I saw the other girls who were joining in, I was so flattered to be among such an amazing group of bloggers! Of course, it won’t be all about Christmas (I’m Jewish!), but the idea of the collab is to discuss holiday things and then wrap up (while everyone is unwrapping… hehe, get it?) on Christmas day. Here’s the low-down…
Each week, there is a different theme catering toward the idea of the holiday season. All of the participating bloggers are on a rotation to provide posts on these topics – we all have something different planned for each week. Here are the general categories we are following…
- Week 1 — DIY: decor, recipes, family traditions, general things that help get you into the spirit
- Week 2 — TIPS: date ideas, vacation plans, finishing up your semester strong/finals tips, exercising during the holidays, party hosting inspiration
- Week 3 — STYLE: holiday party style, looking forward to NYE, how to re-wear the same pieces to different parties, OOTD, winter fashion trends, cold-weather beauty/skin care
- Week 4 — GIFTS: last-minute gift guide, personal wish list, tips for shopping/buying a good gift, cute wrapping ideas, gift exchange ideas
Stay tuned to see what specific topics will be tackled and which girl will be doing what!
Now you might be wondering: How will this factor into weekly Fashion Newcomer posts? Here’s the deal: one post each week (with the exception of the first week and the last week, where there will be two) will be Countdown to Christmas posts. They will vary with what day they are on as all the girls are on a rotation. Other than that, all my posts will be the typical things I normally do! I will say that there will probably be some more holiday posts by just me thrown in (what can I say, holiday season + bloggers = endless gift guides and recipes!). I’m hoping to also do some other collaborations (if you’re interested, e-mail me!) because December is such a fun month and warrants endless ideas for blog posts.
Make sure to check out the other bloggers in Countdown to Christmas! They are all so fabulous – I can’t wait to read their posts in this collaboration!
