Day 16: Must See Holiday Movies

In case you hadn’t noticed, we Tipsies are sort of crazy about the holidays…and holiday movies. We’ve been talking about doing a holiday movie marathon since, like, July. It hasn’t happened yet, but if it does, these holiday movies will definitely be on the viewing list. 1. Love Actually (2003)  We love Love Actually, and don’t really care what all the naysayers have to say. Sure the film isn’t without it’s faults and yeah it’s more than a little cheesy, but it is adorable and will definitely get you in…

Day 15- Radio City Christmas Spectacular

A little over a month ago my mom and I took a whirlwind weekend trip to New York.  We stayed in the most amazing hotel (The Algonquin), ate divine food, and saw a couple of fabulous shows: You Can’t Take It With You (starring James Earl Jones y’all!) and the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.  Typically I am not a fan of doing anything Christmas related before Thanksgiving (except for maybe some shopping!)… but I was not about to pass up the opportunity to see the world-famous Radio…

Day 14: Ugly Christmas Sweater Alternatives

I love ugly Christmas sweaters, in fact, I am wearing one right now as I write this post. Christmas sweaters make me happy, but Christmas sweaters are everywhere. I feel like we all get in the trends, and then we forget to get creative. Well, I am putting my foot down and saying that it is time we think outside of the Ugly Christmas Sweater box and try some other fun holiday party themes! Also, I have some ideas. 1. Ugly Christmas Headband / Hat…

Day 13: Ring in the Holidays with a Rescue

As the resident dog-a-holic of the group, animal rights are very near and dear to my heart.  You will often see me as that annoying friend on Facebook sharing every dog-related post (not the cheesy ones).  Yeah, I know you probably find it SUPER annoying but it’s better than those dumb things your aunt shares, right?   As we get closer to the holidays, many rescue groups are really ramping up their efforts to not only find homes for all of their animals but to…

Day 11: Gifts for Geeky Girls

Let’s face it, no matter how many times we say we’ll “do better next year,” some of us are always going to procrastinate buying gifts for the holidays. If you’re anything like me, that’s because you are TERRIBLE at picking gifts for people. Seriously, no matter how well I know a person, I always stress about what to get them. It’s so annoying. Thankfully the Tipsies have got my back. They helped me come up with an awesome list of gifts  for the geeky girl…

Day 10- The Tipsies Top Tunes for Christmas

Sorry for the delay readers!  We experienced some technical difficulties yesterday and were unable to post… so without further ado, Day 10… Obviously it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the world. People are rushing around, shopping for their loved ones, planning and attending parties, writing Santa Claus, and of course listening to as much Christmas music as they can before the radio stations stop playing, they put away their CDs, records, and Spotify playlists for 10 months. We, at The Tipsy Verse,…

Day 9- Cheese Enchiladas

I know it doesn’t necessarily seem like a recipe for cheese enchiladas is a Christmas-y type post, but enchiladas are something that I associate with the holidays. When I was a kid, and honestly even more recently than that, my family would frequent a local Tex-Mex restaurant when we were doing our holiday shopping. The restaurant was close to the mall, delicious, and even at it’s busiest times the wait wasn’t long and the service was quick. Even though I’ve tried many things on the…
