Ringing in the New Year

Fellow drinkers, you have less than two days to finalize your plans for New Year's Eve, which includes your choice of bubbly or other spirits to get into the New Year's spirit! Depending on what you already have going on, you may not even need to make new plans: many restaurants and venues are providing a toast complete with champagne. But if you plan on celebrating at home or with company in another home, you might want to get creative and get your bottles today.

Starbucks Hacks

Starbucks hacks are so fun to me that I'm in a few different Facebook groups where I learn how to order like a pro! I don't even get Starbucks every week, but when I am headed there for a treat (usually when I can score a TON of points on my gold card, because that's the way to order!) I often check to see if there are any new tips and tricks. 

Pelosi Dangles Articles Of Impeachment

How many bills is Mitch McConnell currently stalling? How long did Republicans stall for Obama's last Supreme Court nomination to ensure it didn't go through? Some may denounce Pelosi's refusal to send the Articles of Impeachment over to our do-nothing (unless it's controlling our bodily autonomy) Sentate but I'm over here applauding it and saying FINALLY. 

2019 Reads Wrap-Up

How was your year in books, Bibliophiles? If you rate your books at Goodreads like I do, it's pretty easy to track and see what you've read, what you liked and disliked and how much progress you made on your TBR. My TBR is ridiculous, with several thousand books, which makes it impossible to completely tackle, but I do make progress each year (while adding more books to the TBR!).

New Year's Deals

At this time of year, many people are shopped out after Christmas, but there are still some great deals going on. Here are just a few I know about; which ones are you planning on hitting?

Bath and Body Works: Their semi-annual sale is always this time of year, as well as in June. You can find a bunch of deals up to 75% off and it's really the time to stock up if you use their products throughout the year. They have daily deals you can sign up to learn about, like $3 handsoaps and wallflowers.
