I haven't done one of these style posts in a while, but I did a Black Friday version a year ago and I thought I'd revisit it. Black seems to be making a big comeback and as we decide to consume less, it also makes great sense. Black always looks chic and especially head to toe. I'm also charmed by the black that has been appearing in homes more and more. It looks fresh, chic and is glamorous paired with gold accents. I'm considering painting one of my walls in my dining room a charcoal black or maybe one of our baths...Here is some pics that will actually make you think black can be pretty...
And as for Black Friday I plan not to shop then. I hate the feeding frenzy of Black Friday and love that REI is closed to honor family time for it's employees and customers. I have already bought a few presents there as I want to support the kind of businesses who want to create a better working environment and a happier world. I know some people like shopping then, but how nice to instead take another day to enjoy being with your family and perhaps get outside together? Great idea I think.
Don't these look good? Coffee Crumble Cookies via Always With Butter blog. There are 50 more great Christmas cookies here at Huffington Post. I love trying a new holiday cookie each year to possibly add to my favorites.
