Hi all! Hope you’ve all had an amazing week! I’m still in denial that Christmas is in mere DAYS. I have to confess: I have done NO CHRISTMAS SHOPPING. Can you believe it? The truth is, it’s very hard for me to keep a secret, and if I bought stuff too far in advance… there’s no way that I wouldn’t totally blow it. What percentage are you done with your holiday shopping? (I posed this question on Twitter last night and am very relieved that SEVERAL of you are ALSO 0% done. Thanks, guys! I feel better.) So this weekend, I’m shop shop shopping til I drop! Wish me luck? On to the links! (BTW- I’ve also included standard shipping deadlines for Xmas delivery with this week’s sale codes! xx)
Forgotten Christmas Movies. Every year, I always make it a point to watch my three faves: White Christmas, Love Actually and Home Alone. Love this list of forgotten holiday movies from Eat Shop Live NYC! If you’re looking for something different, it’s a great resource.
The NYE Accessory I NEED. I’m in love with this delicate star headband from Nasty Gal. It’ll be so perfect for New Year’s Eve!
A BTS Look at The Nutcracker. I love this story on Elle, following 4 different dancers in 3 different productions of The Nutcracker. Definitely makes me miss my dancing days!
Need an Adorable Under $10 Last Minute Gift? The gold monogram mug from Anthro (a blogger fave!) is on sale for $8!
What’s Your Resolution? I love this little quiz on Refinery 29 about what your NYR should be… I got energy? LOL!
The Perfect Party Heel. I can’t get over how amazing these Sam Edelman slingbacks are. GIMME. Size 6.5 please.
Natural Contours. I’m a total believer in highlighting and contouring, but agree with TBD… some people are NOT doing it right! This natural looking contour tutorial so SO great and a handy resource for those of you who want to try it but are scared of looking like a drag queen.
