It’s the start of the holiday season and festivities!
Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year – it signals the beginning of holiday season, everyone gets dressed or dolled up, and it is a time for gathering with friends and family. Since a friend of mine’s birthday is on October 31st, in years past we have managed to get our closest friends together to make Halloweekend a combination of a reunion, a vacation, and of course – a birthday celebration.
It is also the time of year where spirits are high and it’s time to start thinking of gifts for others to share your appreciation. I spend a lot of time, thought and care when selecting presents for others and start looking well ahead of time. Again, I feel as a conscious consumer (who loves to shop), giving a gift that the recipient finds useful, meaningful, or enjoyable is important. I would never give a gift to a loved one that I would not want to receive myself. Holidays are wonderful – as it takes some of the guilt out of the consumption, as I’m buying for someone else!
To kick off the holiday season, I’m sharing a promotion of a partner of the Zaful Solid Color Mesh A-Line Skirt I’m wearing. They are having a Halloween sale where you can get wigs, wings, and unicorn headbands or anything you many need for your costume. You can also enter for a chance to win $100 gift card by sharing this post on two social media platforms, hyping this post below, and emailing the social links to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday October 18th. 15 winners will be randomly chosen between October 19th-23rd.
Good luck! And happy holidays. Follow OA’s Instagram for more treats to come this week.
