The Monday Rundown: Christmas Eve addition

Clarins Feed 10 gift set: ANY woman would love this gift set.  It has all of the most amazing products (Beauty Flash Bomb, etc.) AND, as an added bonus, the sale of each Feed 10 Pouch will provide 10 nutritious school meals through the United Nations World Food Programme—a beautiful way to feed your skin and your soul.

West Elm Wooden Cutout Trees: I’m not one to go crazy with Christmas decorations but I’m really into these simple, wooden cut outs.  They’re chic and just festive enough.

Cannoli: An Italian dessert condition!  For me, these babies are synonymous with the holiday season.

Kate Spade “This is the year to” idiom bracelet: After a rather awful 2012, this bracelet represents the hope of the new year…and let’s hope it’s a good one for all of us.

The Monday Rundown

S’Mores: I’ve always loved S’mores and guys, sometimes I make them in my apartment.  In my gas fire place.  Don’t tell anyone.

West Elm Zigzag Floor Pouf: I clearly have a thing for black and white…and lately, also anything chevron.  I love this floor pouf.

NUANCE Salma Hayak Hydrating Balm Rose Petal: I love a good all-purpose balm.  This one, by Salma Hayak, has shea butter and primrose, both good stuff for your skin and amazing for hydration.

Tory Burch Woven Rope Bracelet: I saw this bracelet the other day while I was returning something to the Robertson Blvd. store.  I had already decided on a new wallet but I’ve now got this fab bracelet on my mind…the photo doesn’t even do it justice!  The blue is an amazing cobalt shade and it’s patent material.  LOVE.

Holiday Gift Guide: The Quirky BFF

Truth be told, I guess I AM the quirky BFF cause I adore everything in this post and want it for myself.

Juicy Couture TXT Me Leather Gloves, $98 – How could I just be hearing of these?  If I still lived in a place where it dropped below 50 degrees, I’d be sooooo into these.  If you’re on the right coast, you need these. NOW.

Gaga’s Workshop Barney’s New York Chocolate Cupcake Pops, $20 – Besides the fact that I adore Lady Gaga (and Barney’s, at that!), these cake pops are everything.  AND, as a bonus, 25% of the proceeds from all sales at Gaga’s Workshop go to Lady Gaga’s new Born This Way Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to empowering youth through mentorship and career development.

LUSH The Jilted Elf Jelly, $11 – Inspired by fig, honey and vodka cocktails, the Jilted Elf is pretty much my definition of amazing.

West Elm Chalkboard Scented Candle Pot, $25 – First, I love candles.  And second, I love that you can write, chalk board-style, on this particular version.  Personalize the candle for your BFF with a funny moment or inspiring quote.

What I Want In My Apartment…NOW

Ever since moving into my LA apartment, I’ve become totally obsessed with home decor.  Naturally, it’s taken me awhile to find my style and decide what I want (aka being able to afford what I want) but right now I’m craving a few more essentials that I’m hoping to buy myself in early (maybe?) 2012.
