Take note of these features that will surely help you forget the holiday rush:

Fashion blogger Laureen Uy's home feature

Known for her blog Break My Style, Laureen Uy lives in a three-bedroom condo filled with colors and prints. We absolutely love her compact yet charming kitchen, the relaxing bedroom, and the dining area that her friends truly adore. The reason why? You have to read the issue to find out!

Home stores you need to visit for must-have finds

Be mesmerized with the pieces available, most of which showcase wood and a lovely European touch.
