What Big Christmas Gift do YOU Want?

sun lamp for depression

It’s always fun to get one big Christmas gift. Do you know what you want? Sometimes it’s hard to decide, so I’m going to run some of my ideas by you guys. What do you think I should ask Santa for?

Prescription Sunglasses

I wear my normal glasses a lot (Tina Fey does too, don’t mock me!). So much so that having a pair of prescription sunglasses doesn’t seem like a bad investment. But will I feel silly wearing them in winter? Do people really wear sunglasses in winter without looking totally dumb?  7eye makes sunglasses that I like, which are a little pricey – but I’ll want them to be sturdy. Espirit is more affordable, and just as stylish. Whatever they are, I want them to be kind of classic-looking n style. I like these three pairs: Esprit Women’s 19274 Resin Sunglasses ... Read More

sun touch plus

I am very interested these days by Sun Lamps. I mean, it’s winter so the sun is hard to find! The NatureBright company has created the SunTouch Plus Light & Ion Therapy lamp to help you with your winter blues, seasonal affective disorder, jet lag or poor concentration.

The Official Best of Fest ‘Chick Flicks’ Review & Giveaway

Saturday, December 5th, 2009

chick flicks

The snazzy Official Best of Fest gift sets aim to show you the best films you’ve never seen, or even heard about. I received a copy of the Chick Flicks gift set to review, but I’ve naturally had to take a couple days to watch enough of it to talk about.

These are substantial films that really make you feel.

Two disc’s are included. The first one has short films, and the second disc has two feature films. I was surprised by the short films, because while I thought they might all be feel-good, happy, mushy things – they were actually mostly dramas that kind of…well, there was a need for Kleenex! They’re ‘Chick Flicks’ in the sense that I can’t think of many guys who would appreciate watching these the way a woman could, but there’s nothing slap-happy involved here. These are substantial films that really make you feel.

I especially enjoyed the films The Republic of Love, Gafa, Charlotte’s Red an ... Read More

The Bombshell Manual of Style

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Jean Harlow

“The perfect little book for anyone who wants to fulfill her own Bombshell aspirations. Just grab your favorite baby doll pajamas, a glass of champagne, and sink right in!” -Marisa Tomei

I spotted The Bombshell Manual of Style by Lauren Stover in a Waldo’s Bookstore, years ago. I was pulled to the book, and even when my practical friend insisted we leave (without the book) I lingered with the book in my hands until I woman-ed up and bought it. I was in high school at this point, so buying random books wasn’t a luxury I could usually afford. But I was in too-deep, already a loyal subscriber to the ways of Grace Kelly and Veronica Lake. And luckily, I wasn’t disappointed by this book. To this day I’m glad I have it in my personal library. It’s not the kind of book you just want to read, it’s the kind you want to ... Read More

Graphique Wall Decals / Stationery Products Review & Giveaway

chandelier decals

Graphique is an online shop that publishes all sorts of goodies from stationery to wall decals. Because they have production centers in North America, Asia and Europe they are able to closely follow design trends to create the most fashionable products. Some people don’t realize how important a font can be (until it’s time to pick Wedding invitations – then they worry about font selection for a month). I love Graphique because they embrace style the way I want to embrace style in my everyday life.
