The Twelve Days of Christmas


…or you could just give lingerie. This Plum Pretty Sugar Loungerie video is really cute and the PJs and lingerie are sexy but look comfy and tasteful.There are more cute styles on their blog. I would love one of the robes with their beautiful patterns or the cropped pajama pants.

My wish list this Christmas!

┬áIt’s about time that I shared some kind of gift guide with you. What better way to share some Christmas gifting guidance than to show you some things that I am wishing for this year.

I love browsing J.Crew’s new Factory shop online. The J.Crew Factory bling-button cardigan ($29.50) looks warm and cozy and is a quality wardrobe staple at the right price.

I absolutely love Nine West’s Masquerade ($39.99) pump. Leopard print anything is probably a good idea this Christmas.

The Limited Statement Sparkle Drops Necklace ($39.90) is perfect for Christmas parties this year and parties for the New Year.

You may have seen NARS Heat Wave ($24.00) featured on the models that wore J.Crew’s Spring 2011 collection. For someone who likes to be ahead of the beauty curve this will be a big color for spring. This color will make the most basic outfit look special.

Gift guide: Dads

This list for dads is very eclectic because dads are usually really hard to shop for. So here is a guide for the sports loving, stylish guy who enjoys a good book as well as a good drink.

Get dad some stylish Hunter Wellingtons.

A classic plaid print scarf.
Coasters for his drink that are also a map of Lower Manhattan.
A no-sew fleece blanket of his favorite sports team.

A thriller to read.
Keep him up to date with the latest TV phenomenon.

Gift Guide: Moms

Here is the Christmas gift guide for your mom who loves to cook and is daring enough to be trendy. I am starting off with some Christmas-time silver and gold. Any mom can pull off the chunky necklace trend especially with this one from Banana Republic because of the classic pearls intertwined.

A parisian style shirt from Topshop.

French milled lavendar soaps from Crabtree and Evelyn.

A book that will take her away from her everyday stress. My Life in France by Julia Child.

A cool grill pan for the wintery months.

Christmas gift guide: Boyfriends

Now comes the Christmas guide for your hipster/preppy boyfriend who is impossible to shop for. Starting things off, pictured above is the Aston Martin from Casino Royale because that really is what he wants. Find more after the jump. (And no peeking!)

He will think these Red Wing boots from UO are really cool.


L’HOMME YSL for men is probably one of my favorite fragrances. Would it be OK if I wore a men’s fragrance?
Vintage cuff links seem to be really popular right now. I am sure you can find some on Etsy or if you make a visit to your local antique shop.

Being in a long distance relationship, we often spend a lot of time in the car either alone or together and either way the Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix album is great driving music.

It tells the time and is an iPod speaker. Enough said.

One trend that I am loving right now in menswear is the Chambray shirt.

For the beer snob, Noel baladin. It’s a Belgian beer produced in Italy and it is really, really good.

Christmas Gift Guide: Sisters

Like I said, I am going Christmas shopping this weekend. I know most of you are not that crazy. So to help you out here is a shopping guide for all of you who have sisters. I realized that me and my sisters usually end up wanting the same things, which is why we would sometimes get matching gifts from our parents. Shopping for them is pretty easy for the most part, but we do have our differences.

Get them something trendy. If they don’t like black leather leggings, get them a toned down trend like Gap’s plaid shirts.
Make sure they stay warm this winter with a cowl neck scarf.

Help them to be eco-friendly with reusable shopping bags.


For the sister who used to love the X-Files and still loves the sci-fi genre, Star Trek.

Ok, I don’t have anything cute to say for this one, but this is just a really funny movie. Someone will love the Hangover.
