Gift Ideas

I love these custom terry robes by Ralph Lauren. What I love so much is that you can customize it for the person you are giving it to.  RL has an entire section devoted to items you can customize including tote bags and polos. Customizing a gift makes the recipient feel extra special.

Ralph Lauren $95

Let It Snow

Very enjoyable activity courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens... to make your own snowflake click here!

WARNING: It is highly addictive!!

10 Most

Tonight the highly anticipated Barbara Walters special comes on: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009. I watch this every year, but this year I am extra anxious because of several of the people she is interviewing. One of them being Lady Gaga. I mean seriously that chick is the definition of strange. She has a great voice but on tv she is always dressed crazy and acting very weird, so I cannot wait to see her interview. I think her list is pretty good from what I've seen... of course we don't know who's number 1 yet. So I thought I would create my own version of the list for fun... hope you enjoy.

10. Spencer and Heidi Pratt
9. Tim Tebow
8. Adam Lambert
7. Michael Jackson's plastic surgeon
6. Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise
5. Evan Williams (Twitter Creator)
4. Tiger Woods
3. Taylor Swift
2. Lady Gaga
1. Cast of Twilight

Don't forget to tune in tonight at 10pm on ABC

I die

for these looks by Ann Taylor. Love love love them all. Very Blair Waldorf.

Take a look.

Festive and Fashionable...

 If you are like me and are a Christmas sweater hater then here are a few ideas to add some holiday sass to your wardrobe!

1. Red in small doses can make an outfit pop. It's the color of the season but don't go overboard.
You already have: White button up top. Black pants. Black heels. *also works great with a LBD

What you need:

some great red nail polish like OPI's...

Comet Loves Cupid, $8.50

And a great red clutch...

Banana Republic $89.50

2. Metalics done right.

Banana Republic Monogram $89.50

Banana Republic $152

Gift Ideas for the troubled sleeper..

This is perhaps my favorite line from Bath&Body Works.  They came out with it 2 years ago, and it's quite fabulous.  If you are like me and love bubble baths and cuddling up with very soft things, you will love it too.

Lambie Collection:

Lambie Robe $49.50

Lambie Slippers $12.50

Lambie Sleep Mask $10

Lambie Sleep Blanket $39.50 (I have this in black and love it)

Aromatherapy Sleep Collection:

They have scents for men and women. My favorite is the lavender vanilla because it's not too strong and the lavender is very soothing. A few of my favorite products are...

Dream Bath $16.50

Pillow Mist $10

Sugar Scrub $16

Pamper and Sleep Gift Basket $60 (they have a smaller one that's $35)
