Well, I have finally moved into my new house! Can I just say moving is the most terrible thing in the world? I still have a lot of de-cluttering to do and I don't exactly have enough bedroom furniture for storage right now. Hopefully, in the next couple of weeks I can order some things and can everything in its place. I will be sure to take pictures and share them with you guys.

As of now, you can just ponder this beautiful picture.
Beautiful, am I right? Ugh this picture makes me want to gouge my eyes out. Any other OCD'ers out there?

I am really excited about the kitchen though. I am ready to cook some things up in there. As of now, I have 0 groceries because I work every night until 8 p.m., but I am going to grocery shop this coming weekend! It's happening.
I am so excited for my Christmas break! I get two whole weeks off and I am thrilled to just have a little bit of down time. What are your plans for Christmas? Also, can I just show you this awesome sweatshirt I am getting ASAP!
All you IGGY fans out there, you're welcome!

So, that is me in a nut shell. A very small nut shell. More updates to come so stay tuned! P.S. I hope to get back to blogging more regularly soon so please come back soon mkay?

I haven't been one to plan out 'dates'. Honestly, I am pretty bad at it. For the most part, my dating life has been, "So, what do you wanna do?" "I don't care. What do you wanna do?" I know. I am pretty much the life of the party over here!

So, when I was approached by Datevitation, my first thought was, "Um, I don't have a boyfriend/husband/boy toy/anything. Turn out, they have dates for all kinds of relationships, such as mother/daughter, father/son, friend/friend. I was so pleasantly surprised and was immediately on board!

Datevitation.com is the web's first online platform to create a custom love coupon book. Unlike the pre-packaged love coupon books on the market, you pick the dates and can customize the text to your liking. Once you are done customizing the text in your book, Datevitation will print it out and ship it to you.
The Datevitation library contains over 500 date ideas ranging from skydiving to stargazing to steamy adult-only activities. We also have over 100 book cover options to suit any occasion.
In addition to being the perfect romantic gift for your sweetie, Datevitation now has "boy" and "girl" characters with over 200 new activity illustrations specifically for kids and parents. There’s also an exciting feature that allows you to add photos of your own faces to the illustrations!
Books normally start at just $25 so it makes for a thoughtful yet economical gift.  But as a special treat for my followers, you can use the code  ‘MELISSAFAYE’  for $10 off your purchase plus free shipping (total value of $13.50) That means you can get your loved one a one-of-a-kind gift for Christmas starting at just $15!  The order cut-off date for guaranteed delivery by Christmas is December 13 so make sure to get your order in before then!

Datevitation is a family business run by the husband-wife team of Alex and Olga Karpman.  You can get to know them on the Datevitation blog, where they offer video guides to date ideas and romantic gestures. You can even watch Alex propose to Olga in a video they posted on Youtube as a Save The Date, and now has over 2 million views (you can view the video here)! 

If you are looking for a unique gift that is much more than a 'thing', this is perfect for the Holidays! Don't forget to use my promo code 'MELISSAFAYE' for $10 off!
Below is a giveaway for your own free Datevitation book! The winner will be notified by email with their free promo code! Good luck!

Christmas is such a special season. I always find ways to personalize and make my gifts extra special. One of the ways I think packages can be wrapped extra special is by making them from "you". When I decided to purchase my wrapping paper, I had to figure out my "theme".

Every year I choose a theme for my gifts. I would love to offer up pictures, but uh, I typically wrap them so last minute that I am giving them to my loved ones before I have time to record it.

Not this year, baby!
I have decided to go with the Merry Woodland wrapping paper from Tiny Prints! This is such a classic, vintage look and a huge PLUS - my name is on the wrapping paper. Now everyone will know where their best gifts come from - haha!
If you are in the market for personalized gift wrap and you want to really WOW your friends and family with the cute prints, you can't go wrong with wrapping paper from Tiny Prints.
Now, go drink some egg nog and wrap up those gifts. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal.
