eanie, meany...

How to choose?! The skating reindeer would be perfect for the season, but there's something inherently irresistible about a dinosaur in fluffy bunny slippers.

Christmas comes 5 days early...

...when Rodarte's collection for Target hits the stores on the 20th. I got to preview the collection thanks to New York Magazine. If there are any pieces left in the stores for me to purchase, I will be styling them differently than they're shown in these photos.

spreading cheer

These cards from pocketstudio are probably out of reach for your list of 50, but for a special someone they'd surely pass the joy around.

cats and dogs

It's been raining ferociously for the first time in a while. I used to have a collection of adorable umbrellas, but they've disappeared within the depths of my closets each time I've moved. I wouldn't mind shielding myself from mother nature under this Lulu Guinness lovely.

These shoes would be delightful to discover under the tree.

American Dreamstate

I love this image from Leah Giberson. Could this have been from any other place but the good ol' U.S.A.?

tastes like Christmas!

As a kid, one of my mom's many aunts would always send us a fruitcake for Christmas. It was always moist and delicious, so I've never understood the joke that is the Christmas fruit cake. I can only assume that everyone else has been experiencing a sub par version.

Today on Martha, I caught her segment on mini fruit cakes. They are loaded with booze and glistened out of the oven. Seriously, what's not to like? Here's the recipe.


The Rockfeller Christmas tree gets lit tonight! I love the tree and all the decorations all over the city. I can't wait to have my annual Christmas date this year!

There's many other less famous trees around the city. This NY Mag article is a good check list.

For those without a fireplace, this lampshade would be nice to cuddle up by on those cold winter nights.


Today is the beginning of Advent! This means I probably should have found myself an adorable Advent calendar a few weeks ago, but at this point I'd better take myself over to the friendly neighborhood Wallgreens to pick up something cheesy. Here's a a sweet version of an Advent calendar en Francais. Seems like it would be easy enough to make if I weren't heading into finals.
