25 Days of Christmas | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

Announcing 25 Days of Christmas

Written By: Robin Reetz

Like getting something for cheap? How about for free?

Earlier this year, we began our weekly #CCFreebieFriday giveaways – weekly opportunities for you to win some of your favorite products from great brands like Conair, Loreal, Stila, Moroccan Oil, and more.

We’ve now officially entered the holiday season – the time of year for giving, getting, and gifting. With that mind, Cheap Chica’s will host 25 Days of Christmas: one giveaway, every day, starting Monday, Dec 1 through Christmas Day.

How great is that? Giveaways will be hosted primarily on Instagram, and are only open to readers in the U.S. If you’ve won, we’ll let you know within 24 hours after the giveaway has ended.

We have a lot of great gifts and surprises up our sleeves, so be sure to follow along on Instagram (@cheapchicas) to enter.

First giveaway launches Monday. Happy giving!

What We're Wearing: Thanksgiving Edition | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

Tomorrow’s the big day – Thanksgiving (!!).

It’s always been one of those holidays that’s a little difficult to dress for. You want to look your best (there will be photos, of course), be comfortable, and also make sure you choose an outfit that allows for…eating.

To help you on your way, we’ve put together three outfit ideas surrounding one piece: H&M’s Sleeveless Jumpsuit ($34.95). The jumpsuit is chic, affordable, allows for lots of layering options, and has an elastic waistband – we don’t even need to tell you how key that is for Thursday.

Here are 3 different Thanksgiving outfit ideas:

Gift Guide: For The Early Bird

Written By: Robin Reetz

Officially, the holiday shopping season doesn’t begin until after Thanksgiving – think Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday.

For the early birds in the crowd, we’ve put together a gift guide featuring some of the best gifts under $50:

Tell us, Chicas – what’s your holiday shopping strategy? Are you an early bird, or do you like to wait until the last minute to do your holiday shopping?
