Festivus Features

I’ve been pretty lazy the last week (I’m in a vacation induced haze) so I’m just getting around to this now…sad right? Anyhoo, these were a few of my favorite Christmas gifts this year.

Old edition of Treasure Island

Classic black converse

Handmade ornaments from my BFF

Giant faux canary diamond ring from Macy's

Bib necklace from H&M

Greatest book (and website) ever

A bottle of my favorite perfume - Angel

New copy of the Exorcist, my favorite movie

Yeah, I'm a professional nerd (and you can see me here in all my sweatpants and bed head and non-made up glory clutching my shiny new copy of Catholicism and Community in Early Modern England)

Any Mad Men fans?

Darling ModCloth ring that I've wanted for months

That's a MAC lipstick in my favorite shade (Hue) and those are bow ties for my cats

Sweet new kicks

And, of course, it’s New Years Eve tomorrow! I’m heading to the casino with my helpmeet and two friends for a night of gambling and drinks (always a good mix) – what are your exciting plans to usher in 2011?

In other news, I did some Boxing Week shopping and scored BIG TIME! Think leopard print jackets, sparkling skirts, and skinny cut pants at AMAZING prices (and I bought a tiara - it sounds like a weird thing to buy but I actually collect them so it's slightly less odd) – so watch for those in some upcoming outfit posts.

Happy New Year everyone!!!!

I think awkward family photos is an excellent coffee table book- ohhh too funny.

Love your giant canary ring!

Fashion Limbo said...

wow, your friends and relatives have some really nice taste... I wasn't as lucky with my gifts. I had some random and questionably taste ones, and the good ones got lost in the post as they were online purchases. And at the end of my xmas hols I got a horrid stomach bug and I'm stuck in bed, on NYE, and my menu for the special night will probably include lots of boiled rice, and nothing much :( 2011 can't come faster ;)

Penny Dreadful Vintage said...

Bwahaha, the family photos book looks aweswome! And I love the kicks, especially the scalloped tongue (that sounds wrong in some way). Have a great NYE x

Champagne Sweet New Year!

I love having you as a blog friend. Really.

Your new header is very much to my liking. Chic. So is your new ring.

Downtown Paris festivities are calling me tonight... and you?

I got my dad Awkward Family Photos Xmas! Love it! And Treasure Island is one of my fav books ever! I just have a crappy paperback copy I colored all over when I was a kid, so I am jealous.

You got some awesome gifts there! Have a great time tonight at the casino! We're staying in, as my hubs has had a nasty cold all week, but I'll probably still dress up a bit for dinner, wine, and a movie. :)

First, I love the nerdy books. Obviously.
Second, I love the sweet kicks -- both pairs. Who doesn't love Converse?
Third, I love "Awkward Family Photos" -- They truly are awkward/uncomfortable/creepy/hilarious.
