You're a master of karate and friendship... for everyone

Holiday Gift Guide: Brother

Every year I say I'm going to have my Christmas shopping finished early, but lo and behold I'm stuck at the mall on Christmas eve scrambling for a thoughtful gift. Well, not this year! I'm actually checking things off my list with a vengeance.

First up, my brother. Not only do we share a birthday, (he's 3 years younger) but it's two days after Christmas! So I always try to do well by him, and get a great gift. This year, he really wanted a camera. And lucky me, Slickdeals posted a helluva deal today: Fujifilm 10 mp Camera, 2GB memory card, and camera case for $80!

Additional gift ideas for Brother(s):
- A good bottle of Whiskey
- Hoodie, jersey, or hat of their favorite sports team: GO STEELERS!
- Nose and ear hair trimmer (seriously, what guy doesn't need this!)
- Portable Grills

Is it me, or has this week draaaaged on? I think it's because a Holiday is approaching, and I can't wait to be home in Pittsburgh!

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

P.S. This song always makes me want to watch Cruel Intentions!

Happy Veterans Day

I had to post something happy, but it will still make you cry! :)

Thank you to all who have served, and continue to serve our country.

Etsy Wants

Truffle Bag in Burnt Red, $235 -- How gorgeous would this be for fall/winter?
Very Romantic Grey Dress, $56 -- Another perfect dress built for colorful tights and boots.

Royal Brilliant Blue Vintage Necklace, $33 -- This would pop on any outfit, a LBD, jeans and a tee. So pretty.
Origami Dress, $325 -- This is gorgeous. I could never pull it off, but wow, what a stunner.

The Carrie Necklace in Stormy, $25 -- I'm a sucker for romantic, pretty pieces like this.

Poison Apple clutch, $38 -- This would literally go with everything. I love the wine colored flower.

Lady Gaga - Bad Romance

This video is gorgeous. Despite the camel toe shoes!

The Gossip Girl Threesome

Lizzie McGuire has grown up, no?

Acoustic "Whatever you like" is pure amazingness. Love.

This was a letdown for me, as I was hoping it involved Chuck Bass. Everything is better with Chuck Bass. Fact.

New coat and fuchsia shoes!

I stopped by Old Navy over the weekend, and picked up the Belted Wool-blend coat. It is a little big, (I got a large) but it will do well with layers. I had an additional 15% off, so I managed to snag it for $29! Can't beat that.

While at the mall, I stopped in Aldo, and picked up these fuchsia mary janes, on sale for $35. They're really comfortable, I wore them to work today and no complaints! I can't find them online anymore, but they're on the sale rack in store.

Calling all New Yorkers! Gucci Watch & Jewelry Family and Friends Sale

Gucci is one of our clients at work, and unfortunately I don't live in New York or I would SO be there! Enjoy!

Extra 20% Off JCrew Sale

Of course the EXTRA20 code would appear when I'm trying realllyy hard (okay, maybe not that hard) to resist the urge to shop. Here are my wants:

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.

Friday Funday: Party in the USA

Yes, I admit defeat, I love it. I am hardly a fan of Miley Cyrus, but I CANNOT get enough of this song!

Here's to a great weekend!

All Old Navy outerwear 50% off this weekend!

Don't forget to hit up Old Navy this weekend! All Outerwear is half off!

Here are my favorites:

Wool-Blend Funnel Neck Coat, $45 -- I love this, so simple and classic. And think of the scarf/glove possibilities! Endless.
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.

Dress Porn

This dress is AMAZING. The color, the shape, I DIE. Diane Kruger always looks stunning, and of course this is Chanel. Of course.

Band Aid Friction Block will change your life

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.

OOTD: Ruffled Grey

Dress: Anthropologie's Musings Dress
Belt: H&M
Cardigan: The Limited
Tights: Spanx
Shoes: Style & Co from Macy's

I tried this dress on in Philly when it was full price and was thisclose to buying it, but I'm so glad I waited because it was half off! I think it looks best belted, so I threw on this snakeskin skinny belt, but I'm thinking a slightly wider belt may be better.

Leather & Shakes

Today's lunch: Special K Protein Shake (Chocolate), Mango Sunrise Fruit Leather, and a banana.

Very exciting, no? ;)

Oh, and that's my The Office quite of the day calendar, today says:
"Oh my God, Darryl! You look like Barack Obama! Everybody, I'm dating Barack Obama!" - Kelly
