The Hookup On: Holiday Shopping

I am not a good gift giver. When birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries roll around I all of a sudden forget about any interests the person I’m buying for has. I brainstorm ideas all year, then the date rolls around and I’m completely blank.

I never thought I would find an affordable personal shopper option until I learned about Occasion Station. With the free version, you can create a station for a loved one and fill it with all the special occasions you want to remember for that person. You’ll receive email reminders from the system when that date is approaching. For a little more money, you can activate one of the personal gift shoppers and they will complete the task of buying, wrapping and shipping the gift for you.

And how do I know that Occasion Station sends good gifts and really nails the personalization? Because they sent me two AMAZING gifts to prove to me and to share with all of you how awesome their services is. My personality boils down to two things – the sloth being my spirit animal as I am lazy and quite sleepy, and eating donuts as much as possible.


GUYS look at these gifts! When I opened the box I audibly said “oh my god” and danced around my room alone. I can’t wait to see what Occasion Station will choose for my holiday shopping. Since Christmas is just around the corner, I thought this was a great time to share with you all this easy option!

10 Reasons Why Christmas Is Annoying

1.The Christmas freaks

Do not play Christmas songs in October and hang your lights up in November when the holiday is in December!!

2. Snow

And cold weather. THE WORST.

3. Too much food.

Like Christmas time is just a month of getting fat. At least on Thanksgiving it’s only for a day.

4. Greed

Basically we all demand presents for no reason.

5. Shopping

I hate shopping in general. There are so many people at the malls and it’s so stressful.

6. The exclusivity

It’s like the only holiday that matters apparently…

7. The music

Idk there are only like 3 Christmas songs I can name that don’t suck.

8. Too much family time

Spending time with family is nice…for a little while…

9. Taking down the decorations

They’re everywhere!! And then you have to take the lights down in the cold and snow!! ugh.

10. When it’s over

All the holly jolly goes away and we all go back to being mean to each other because we’re not in the “Christmas spirit” anymore.

7 Reasons Why You Should Love Halloween

It may sound weird to you, but Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. Here’s why:

1.You can be whatever you want

It’s the one day a year you can dress up as someone else, forget about who you are for a while, and not be judged for it.

2. It’s a holiday for all ages

When Christmas comes around, I don’t have butterflies in my stomach anymore while waiting for Santa. I may not be Trick or Treating anymore, but I’m still dressing up for Halloween!

3. There are countless fun fall activities leading up to Halloween.

Pumpkin picking, pumpkin carving, apple picking, jumping in piles of leaves, etc. So. much. fun.

4. It’s a kick off to the best holidays of the year!

First you’re celebrating Halloween, and then Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are around the corner.

5. Halloween movies are the best movies.

13 Nights of Halloween > 25 Days of Christmas.

6. Halloween has a different vibe than any other holiday.

It’s scary! There’s no forced family time and the pressure to be filled with the heartwarming holiday spirit. It’s goofy, odd, and enjoyable – no pressure.

7. Candy.

Enough said.

7 Reasons Why I’m Excited Fall Is Beginning

I wrote 7 reasons why I hated that summer was ending, but I kind of love that fall is beginning. Sorry, there’s no pumpkin spice latte’s on this list – I’m more excited about Mallomars.

1.No more sweating through my clothes

Or begging someone to turn on the air conditioning…

2. Being “bikini bod ready” is no longer a priority

It really wasn’t a priority before, but I kind of tried.

3. Comfort food

No bikini body? No problem, bring on the pie.

4. Shaving your legs is not a frequent task

Sorry, but it’s true.

5. Fall clothes are super cute.

Layering, scarves, warmth, give me it all!!!

6. The best holidays!!!

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years all in one beautiful season.

7. Cold weather is prime cuddling weather

Now I just need to find a boyfriend
