Welcome back to day 8 of my 12 Days of NYC Christmas series! We're going to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of showing you the city and instead show you around my studio. Because what's more New York than paying an absurd amount of money for a small shoebox apartment?

Now I haven't shown my apartment in foreverrr so there are just a few fun changes in store. To refresh your memory, you can check out my entire apartment tour here on the blog and here on YouTube!

This is the first year that I've ever really decorated for the holidays. Most of the time I just skip it because I go home for Christmas and never seem to be able to enjoy the festive decor. But this year I decided to really go all out and I started decorating November 1st haha. Call me crazy but I have to really get it in!

It's really really hard to decorate such a small space for the holidays so I thought I could share my 5 favorite tips of my own for you:

1. Swap Out The Pillows: This was the first thing I did this year and it really makes such a difference! Just by simply getting some new festive pillows, the place totally changed and it felt like I was officially in party mode.

2. Get a Mini Tree: You don't need a huge tree to get in the holiday spirit! This mini one was great for all I needed. What's best is it came pre-lit, pre-decorated and all put together. I just fluffed it up a little, added a bow topper and we were ready to go!

3. Festive Table Top: Maybe you don't have enough space in your apartment for real holiday decor so the next best thing is the table top and barware. It's always good to have a couple sets of everything so this is when I break out my plaid and gold sets-- they're perfect for Thanksgiving AND Christmas! Mark and Graham has the best stuff for this!

4. Wrap Presents Early: Maybe you're not an early shopper like I am, but if you are: wrap your presents early! You don't want them just lying around anyway. I wrap them to really spruce up the place: fashion and function! I'm thankful enough to have a large windowsill so they were able to be nicely displayed there. I'm thinking that'll be my new festive spot in the apartment.

5. Get Some Lights: This is probably the best thing I've bought for my place. These lights are to DIE for. They're only $17 and they're amazinggggg. You just string them along anywhere in your apartment and it's instantly more festive. I think I'm probably going to keep these up all year round they're that pretty!
