What I'm Loving in December12/13/2013
The Netflix show is a pretty big deal, so I went ahead and bought the book the show is based on. Orange Is the New Black, which I just finished, is about Piper Kerman's time in a minimum security women's prison. If you love the show, you'll love the book too. Now the only thing left to do is bum a Netflix trial off a friend.
After I heard about glittens the other day, I knew I would be searching the internet for a great pair like these from Calypso St. Barth. I just love the whole concept of having finger-less gloves so you can send your Instagram photos and text, while then being able to cover up your phalanges with a mitten to keep warm.
These bordeaux colored biker-inspired leather pants by Scotch & Soda are no joke. I love the quilted knee patches (reminds me of the Isabel Marant for H&M pants). The coolest thing about Scotch&Soda is that accessories come paired with many of the clothing items in stores, like at the Santana Row location by me.
OK, I'm totally not a coffee fanatic. I could go without it forever if need be. But I've always had a thing for caramel macchiato at Starbucks. It contains syrup, milk, espresso, foam and caramel drizzle. Recently, I've been getting it in size short, and I have no idea why I hadn't been ordering this size all along. It's the perfect amount of coffee for a caramel lover like me.
Now that I have a turntable, I can finally listen to the records that I own, which also now include more modern albums like the new Lana Del Rey, etc. I just really like the whole idea of not only listening to the classics but also the new hotness via superb audio quality on a sleek record. Makes me feel a bit smug, y'all.
As you might know, two of my favorite comic book characters are Betty and Veronica, so I was happy to hear that Charlotte Olympia created an Archie Comics Resort 2014 collection. Pieces include clutches and shoes. How cute are these ballet flats? If only I knew where to buy them!
Now I'm more into eyebrows than ever before, and it's weird because I never used to care much about these things. A product that I've been into lately is the SmartBrow Eyebrow filler. I have it in the black/brown shade and its hair-like fibers really helped to fill in my oh, so sparse brows for a natural look.
So I'm smitten with just about everything in the C. Wonder home decor section. How cute are these $8 votive candle holders, the lucite decorative accent pieces, and--my faves--the fork cheese markers set! I recommend you shop C. Wonder either in store or online for some fab gifts for your home.
If you watch The Voice, then I'm sure you know who Tessanne Chin is; and if you listen to any reggae music at all, then you've probably heard of her sister Tami Chynn as well. They, like me, were born in Kingston, Jamaica. I have been all over their music this month, especially Tessanne's cover of Underneath It All from the show and Tami's song Tell Mi Seh, which is running around in my head at the moment.
And the winner of the Boy Meets Girl personalized hoodie giveaway is...Britny Gill! Congrats!
What are you loving this December? Beyonce's secret new album, perhaps?
