Be inspired by my ideas on what to get your significant other this holiday season!

A Holiday Gift Guide For The Person Who Has Everything

It's the most wonderful time of the year... the time to wrack your brains trying to figure out a present for your significant other. If you're like me, you're stuck with a partner who buys what they want when they want to - leaving nothing for the wish list. Over the years I have had to get creative when shopping for my love. To make things even more difficult, my boyfriend's birthday is at the end of January. So with Black Friday coming up, here is my list of gifts for bae.

1. A Watch

Watches are super classy and can be worn every day or for special occasions. There are fun nerdy watches.

And there are classy grown up watches.

If you really want to be cool, there are pocket watches.

2. A Blanket

A far simpler gift, but there is something so sweet about a handmade blanket. This is an inexpensive gift and you can pick up ready-made kits at your local craft store. The first Christmas we were together, I made my boyfriend a Michigan blanket. He still uses it, four years later.

3. A Gift Subscription

Many subscriptions can be gifted for a certain amount of time. I once subscribed my boyfriend to the Dollar Shave Club for three months. I currently subscribe to Ipsy and Petbox. These are fun gifts, with an element of surprise. They also do a variety of cooking/baking gift boxes, which would be a gift and an excuse to spend quality time together.

4. Tickets!

Material things are all well and good, but memories are priceless. Keep an eye out for any good shows around the holidays and pick up some tickets. If you're able to, go directly to the theater and buy your tickets from the box office. I save $10 a ticket buying directly from the Detroit Opera House, rather than buying online and getting charged service fees from Ticketmaster. This January we're going to see "The Phantom of the Opera."

5. Toys and Games

We may be mostly grown, but sometimes a blast from the past can bring back happy memories and keep us busy for a while. Pick up that special edition version of a board game or the complicated grown-up Legos. It might just be the gift they didn't know they wanted.

6. A Trip

Again, with the idea that memories are priceless, plan a getaway -- it can be a tropical trip or even a staycation! If you're worried about them having something to unwrap, you could always wrap a brochure in a large box.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
