weekend wrap-up

Friends, the house is empty today and I’m partying like it’s 1995.  An entire 2 liter of Diet Dr Pepper + an empty house + me + hip hop? 

It’s not pretty, but it’s a party.


A few things I wanted to remind you about over the weekend:

  • I shared Top 10: Fashion Trends for the Holidays on Tip Junkie this week.  Hint: fur is hot, in more way than one.
  • I’m giving away an Epiphanie camera bag and you want to get in on the love.  It’s the most gorgeous camera bag known to man.  Hurry!
  • If you still haven’t gotten out a holiday card, just do a post card, it’s so much cheaper.
  • I walk you through {vlog you through} how to make homemade sugar scrub.  For all the friends on your holiday list.
  • I’m speaking at the Altitude Design Summit.  You coming?  I want to hang.

Elsewhere on the web:

I write for BabyCenter’s Momformation blog every week, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t share the last two posts I wrote:

Some of my favorite posts from the week:

  • We Covet featured some jeweled black flats this week, and I want a pair.  Pronto.
  • Five Holiday Albums that don’t suck.  I want the Glee one, natch.
  • The Bloggess interviewed Santa Who on earth thought that was a good idea?
  • Kristen Bell got something right.  The Fug Girls give her a thumbs up for this outfit.  Kristen, how’s about you pick a good movie role to showcase your acting talent?  I haven’t seen those chops since Veronica Mars ended.  *sigh*
  • Christmas Desktop Wallpaper from How About Orange
  • Jane makes hot chocolate from scratch I know.  This is why she’s a food blogger and I’m not.

Have a great weekend.  I have a few giveaways up my sleeve early next week.  And I got to interview Meg Cabot this week and can’t wait to share the details.

    I love Kristin Bell! I think I’m missing the link for that one. . . .

    My favorite post this week was on how to line your water line. My eyes have never looked so good! It totally makes my hazel eyes look amazing! Thank you! Even my husband did a double take!

    • Allison :

      I’m telling you, I would have done a double take too. It’s the trick of magicians.
