Christmas lights

Did you survive Thanksgiving? We hope you did! And we bet everything you made was a success. We hope you aren’t out shopping today, and instead have opted to stay in and relax. While relaxing, why not read this week’s From Our Friends? From Our Friends is OA’s weekly roundup of our favorite posts, published by our friends and partners around the web.

This week’s post has a link to an article about how to make a cute, light bulb Christmas ornament, a heartwarming post about a stray dog, some information about an all-vegan butcher shop, and makeup tips for women who have to wake way early. Also: A link to a vegan mashed potato recipe, info about how texting is hurting your neck, and some holiday season tips from a chef.
