We’ve all been there. It’s one week till Christmas. You’ve done almost all of your Christmas shopping, but then you remember. You still haven’t picked out that ONE presented you have to think of something fast.

1. For Your Coffee Loving Friend

2. For Your Friend that Loves to Stay Hydrated

4. Your Boyfriend that Really Loves Tacos

I mean, how could he not? Tacos are delicious! Give him the gift of DIY tacos with a twist with a Taco Mania Man Crate! Complete with a tortilla press and corn flour, he’ll have everything he’ll need for bomb tacos.

5. Your Secret Santa Co-Worker

Bath & Body Works, $12.50

It happened. You got the person in your office you knew you couldn’t shop for. Play it safe and get a candle like this one from Bath & Body Works. Most work places will give you a list of things that your person likes such as their favorite scent. Unless they hate candles. If they do see my first idea.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


Trust Your Bouncers

Last night while my friend and I were out at a bar, a man came up and tried to get us to take shots with him. When we declined he pushed harder. I got a very bad feeling from this and knew we needed to diffuse the situation and leave. 
As he became more forceful I gathered up our things and stood, all while she continued to keep calm and decline his offer. As we stood to leave he did the same, blocking our way to the door and saying “you’re not really leaving are you?”
At this point I said, loud enough to get attention, “no we’re leaving”. He proceeded to follow us to the door. I stopped at the bouncer and quickly explained the situation. He made sure he knew who I was talking about and then said “I’ll stop him you two go, get outta here”. 
We bee lined for the next place with a bouncer. I knew we could at least go in and if we were still being followed let that bouncer know. Thankfully I turned around and saw that we were no longer being followed. 
Ladies and gents, trust your instincts, stay calm, and trust your bouncers. 

Happy Birthday!
