The holiday season can be incredibly stressful. With work and family obligations, cold weather and holiday parties galore, it is easy to become overwhelmed. 

Here are a few tips to make your holiday run smoothly. 

First of all do not feel obligated to say yes. No is a complete sentence. No, thank you, if you want to add some emphasis. You cannot attend every holiday gathering. You don’t have to bring a dish if you do not feel like cooking and you need not feel guilty about not giving a gift.

Secondly, you are not obligated to always be the host. You are not here for others entertainment. If you love to throw a holiday party then great! You can also cater your affair. Keep it simple with desserts and wine or a signature cocktail or better yet make it apotluck.

Finally and most importantly, the holidays should be a time where you invest in yourself too!!! You can shop on a budget and make a great impact with a statement piece like a faux fur to add some instant glam to your look. Shop at a great vintage boutique such as IndigoStyle Vintage located in Bedstuy, Brooklyn, for a unique piece that will representyour individual style
