This song is among my top 5 all-time favorite Christmas songs!
Tonight is my work Christmas party, but they're calling for a crazy snow storm starting at noon and the entire city is preparing to shut down, so we'll see about that!
Happy Friday! :)

What you need:
1 package Oreo cookies, finely crushed
1 8 oz package cream cheese (no reduced fat stuff, please…we’re talking truffles here)
2 packages (8 squares each) semi-sweet chocolate, melted (in the microwave is easiest)
What you do:
1. Mix 3 cups of the cookie crumbs with the cream cheese until well-blended.
2. Shape cookie/cream cheese mixture into 42 1” balls.
3. Dip balls in melted chocolate (use two forks and sort of roll them around until evenly coated; allow excess to drip off) and place on wax paper.
4. Sprinkle over remaining cookie crumbs and refrigerate at least one hour before serving. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
Other decorating ideas: Adorn your truffles with sprinkles, colored sugar, or even edible glitter.
I plan to make these for a Holiday Party this weekend! Mmmmmm...

Enjoy The Verve! Youtube disabled embedding of the actual video, but you can watch it here.

Who remembers Jeremy Jordan!? I will always love this song, I remember dancing around my room trying to dress like Brenda Walsh and pretend I lived in Beverly Hills. Oh memories...

Lizzie McGuire has grown up, no?
This was a letdown for me, as I was hoping it involved Chuck Bass. Everything is better with Chuck Bass. Fact.

Jackie Cardi in Golden Cypress $32 -- I am always drawn to chartreuse, but never actually wear it. Considering Jackie's are normally $62, I think this is a must.
Silk tiered Cami in Aubergine $54 -- Gorgeous color, and I love how these cami's look belted.
Solid Three-Quarter length stretch shirt in Warm Riviera $38 -- Another color I can't get enough of! And you can never have too many button down's.
Classic Leather Belt in Brown $12 -- A MUST at this price! No question.
Wool-blend Swing Coat, $35 -- The color is gorgeous, and such a fun little coat. I have nothing like this in my closet.
Double-breasted wool-blend coat $50 -- Another classic coat, in a flattering shape.
Wool-blend bell-sleeve coat $50 -- Such a gorgeous color for winter, and the bell sleeves give it something extra.

This item has literally changed my life. A million thank you's to GiGi for recommending it!
Band Aid Friction Block is a miracle worker, ladies. As we all know, the first day of wearing a fab new pair of shoes is quite literally, torture. Blisters, aches, pains, you know the drill. Well, our savior is here! I put this on to break in new heels and not ONE blister after a whole day! Sure, I wasnt walking miles in them, but this is momentous considering the usual state of my feet after Day One.
AND! You can use it to prevent any other instances of chafing or skin rubbing. This would have come in handy when I was walking around Las Vegas in 108 degree heat in a skirt. Needless to say, anything to prevent hot skin rubbing on hit skin would have been GREAT.
In a lunchtime jaunt to Tarjay yesterday, not only did I buy a 12 inch X-mas tree for the cats (yes, I admit Cat Lady status, but it was only $2.50!), but I picked up this adorable Blair Waldorf-esque headband. How great would this be for Christmas or New Years? I also found these cute blue tights with silver designs I may pair it with.
