I generally dislike Black Friday since it's so overhyped by every retailer out there. But if you are going to get your holiday shopping done on Black Friday this year, I definitely suggest opting to shop from small and local business instead of big retailers.

When you live in an apartment or condo without a yard, your balcony becomes a super important outdoor space. I opted for cheaper outdoor furnishings and desert-friendly plants to make my outdoor space as low-maintenance as possible.
Most of my furniture is pretty dark, but I don't want my home to look like an actual cave. I've been balancing out my dark furniture with lighter textiles.
