Falling For Fall
Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

1. FALL Mason Jars

Go to a thrift or dollar store a buy glass jars and fake flowers and leaves. You can find the paint and string at Walmart for a couple bucks. Either paint the letters on the jars, or spend a little extra money on the burlap material. There ya go! Super simple and very festive.

2. Jar of Pumpkins

The easiest of all. Again, these glass jars can be found at a dollar store. There are mini pumpkins all over the place this time of year!

3. Leaf Garland

Buy a bundle of fake leaves, glitter spray paint, ribbon, and a hole punch. This would be super cute above a fireplace or window frame!

4. Leaf Candle Holder

Simple and straight to the point, these would be super cute as a centerpiece of dinner parties or Thanksgiving!

5. Glitter Pumpkins

Grab some pumpkins, paint, glitter, and glue; you'll have a splash of sparkle to spice up your home in no time.

6. Chocolate Pumpkin Bread

I can't wait to try this out! Click the picture to be taken to the recipe.

7. Apples

With some apple cider around a campfire, these would be a great snack.

8. Apple Cider Cocktail

Speaking of apples... this sounds phenomenal.

9. Scarves

Wearing a scarf is my favorite way to stay cozy this season.

10. Beanies

And beanies are the best way to keep your brain warmed up for all those midterms this time in the semester. Beanies also come in handy for second-day hair or if you're in between washes!

11. Boots!

My favorite part of fall attire is getting to wear warm boots! There are many different brands and prices for this particular style. But if they aren't your those boot socks are super cute also!

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
