If you’re committing to a live tree this holiday season, I hope you’re ready to do a lot of watering. That big boy’s going to need a gallon or more per day, and no additives or spray-on stuff can change that. Keep your tree watered. Otherwise, it becomes a huge fire hazard.
When it comes to booking hotels there are a lot of theories out there on when the "best" time to book is. I know people who swear you should book as soon as you start planning a trip, and others who think a few days before your departure is the right time to get a deal. In truth, the answer is somewhere in-between.
It's hard to stick to your budget when you travel, especially if you have kids who want souvenirs or gifts that can add up. Instead, consider loading a prepaid card before your trip and giving it to your kids, or using it to cap your own souvenir spending.
When you think of St Patrick's Day, you probably think of green beer, shot glass necklaces that say "Kiss Me I'm Irish", and everybody talking about how Irish they suddenly are. That's all well and good, but I bet you don't know much about the holiday's origins, or the saint it celebrates.

Last week, we ran a competition to win a five-night holiday in Reykjavik, the capital city of Iceland. To win, you needed to successfully answer five questions about Sodastream's Shame or Glory video against the clock. Here is the winner!
A good beauty writer isn't beholden to a single brand, but selects the best products to create the best possible look. Rather than giving a generic box set, buy your beautiful giftee a selection of expertly curated products from a tutorial, then take it a step further, wrapping these products in the tutorial itself.
Arriving at a hotel only to find that the beautiful pool, relaxing spa or well-stocked gym are all out of order can put a damper on your holiday. But you don't have to just deal with the disappointment: The hotel may be willing to give you a room credit, or even an upgrade, to make up for lack of amenities -- all you have to do is ask.
Small business owners are a hardworking bunch but it's important for them to schedule in downtime over the holiday season to avoiding burning out. It's wise for them to plan a break well in advance and by now small business owners should already have a good idea on when they'll take time off. They just need to make sure that they clearly communicate that information to their customers.
