Well, Kiddies: Chanukah’s over, Christmas is only a week away, and I’m knee deep in holiday euphoria. I’ve been listening to tons of xmas music. Everything from The Ronettes Christmas, to A Very Special Christmas to Christmas Remixed. Andy hates listening to the same old xmas shlock every year, so he finds the most obscure remixes, like Santastic Mashup, to keep it feelin’ fresh. I love it.
It’s been a busy holiday season this year, what with the writers’ strike depriving me of my social life, Katie Holmes pulling a Single White Female on baby Suri, and the shocking news of Jamie Lynne Spears’ pregnancy! Whoa… But I’m ready to get down to business, and talk Christmas.
I’ve got most of my Christmas shopping finished. I’m sure I’ll freak out at the last minute and decide to buy something else, but it’s cool, because giving presents is almost as fun as getting them! And I’ve been doing lots of decorating, including making a stunning Gingerbread House last night. Behold!
So, what do I want for Christmas? Here are a few things that looked cool, as well as some that looked a little crazy (no ear dryers this time!!!)
Fingerless Gloves. I have a pair already and I love them, but these gloves by Zero + Maria Cornejo caught my eye. First of all, they’re cashmere (yum), they’re elbow length, and they’ve got ruching down one side for that ultra chic look.
Super cute hoop earrings from Kenneth Jay Lane. I asked for these for Christmas—think I’ll get em? (hehe) They’re simple enough to wear during the day, but flashy enough to wear for a night out.
For that special guy in your life: the most insane Swiss Army Knife ever. It has 85 tools and over 100 functions. Seriously, who needs all that crap? (Probably my dad, but I’m not spending $1,200 on a frigging pocket knife).
A Swarovski USB flash drive, because who doesn’t need a little bling when they’re storing memory?
I love this clutch by Seril. It’s called the “knockout clutch.” Come on, how cute is that? I know this bag is overly trendy right now, but it’s fabulous. I want one!!!
Different Like Coco. I don’t think I know any kids, but I’m a Young Adult writer, and I love fashion, and this book looks AWESOME! Who wouldn’t want to read an illustrated biography of Coco Chanel?
And after you’ve done all your Christmas shopping, don’t forget to do a little charity work. Check out FreeRice.com, where you can practice your vocab while simultaneously donating rice to the UN to end world hunger! Cool, right?
Okay, this is probably my last post before xmas. My parents just got into town, and we’re having a party, so there’s boat-loads to do around here.
Happy Holidays everybody!
