Gift Guide: Jay-Z Approved, Gifts with No Budget
Written by: admin | Gift Guide

jay z beyonceYou know the lyrics (and if you don’t, you should), “In the Ferrari or Jaguar, switchin’ four lanes with the top down screamin’ out, ‘money ain’t a thang.”  Perhaps you’re not Jay-Z, but you did get a particularly large bonus this year and you have a very deserving individual on your gift list.  Bless you.  If pinching pennies is not something you must do and budgeting is a word that is reserved strictly for the government, I’ve got a heap of indulgent gifts for the most discerning recipients.  And if you’re feeling particularly generous, I’ll happily accept any of the below suggestions.  It is far better to give than receive, after all.

Gift Guide: Pet Project, Gifts for Pets
Written by: admin | Gift Guide

kirsten-smith-del-monte-beach9Last night, I was bamboozled by an eight pound maltipoo.  I had been running from meeting to meeting all day and when I stopped home around 5:30pm to charge my phone, grab a birthday card, and find something to stuff into my mouth before bouncing to yet another obligation, Smitty provided me with an Oscar worthy performance.  Having dealt with last year’s health scare, I’ve become especially sensitive to my precious pup’s behavior and he was displaying all but identical symptoms to those that landed him in the doggy ER.  I canceled plans and apologized and spent the rest of the evening rubbing Smitty’s gurgling belly and Googling his symptoms (do not do this.  It’s just as terrifying as WebMD).  A call to the emergency vet confirmed that Smitty did not have canine bloat and by 3am, I was finally able to feel comfortable enough to get a bit of sleep.  When I awoke this morning, I suffered a mild attack of panic when he did not immediately rouse from his deep slumber, but when he did it was as if he had no recollection of last night’s maladies.  He was just happy to have me as his personal body pillow.  You win, Smitty.  Your move, Cumberbatch.

Gift Guide: Gifts for the Fitness Fanatic
Written by: admin | Gift Guide

fitness holiday gift guide(note: this is not a yoga pose… unless you want to call it the “twisted dancer.”)

Oh, hey, newsflash: fitness is having a fashion moment right now.  Finally, Americans have realized you have to do a bit more than exercise your thumbs to keep in shape these days.  With Barry’s Bootcamp, Power Yoga, Crossfit, and all variations of Pilates and spinning studios popping up faster than Starbucks in Brooklyn, the activewear market is benefiting from a major boom in sales.  I, personally, have a hard time shelling out a hundred bucks a pop on pairs of yoga pants, but one can’t stroll into these sleek studios wearing ratty sweats risking the possibility of a crotch hole mid happy baby.  Spoil your sporty friend with something she can sweat all over this year.  She (and her inner thighs) will thank you for it come swimsuit season.

Gift Guide: Techsessories, Gifts for the Tech Obsessed
Written by: admin | Gift Guide

tech holiday gift guide
I bet you’re reading this from your phone… or tablet… or laptop.  We are a society that is totally tech obsessed and while many of us could and should do a digital detox, the chances of that happening are less likely than me retiring my crop tops any time before I turn forty.  I, myself, basically work from my phone, iPad, or MacBook and most of the time I’ve got at least two of these items with me.  Fortunately and unfortunately, I can work from just about anywhere there’s wifi and this seems to be an ever growing trend.  When I’m taking pictures of my perfect bowl of ramen at Momfuku, I’m working.  When I’m switching between ten Instagram accounts, I’m clocking those hours.  Even posting on Facebook adds to my paycheck.  Having said that, I’ve become a bit of an expert on all things that make working on the fly a little bit easier and a lot more stylish.

And in the gift guide, I’ve rounded up some fashionable gadgets for the tech gal on the go.

Gift Guide: Hostess Gifts, Thanks for Coming.
Written by: admin | Gift Guide

holiday wreathUgly sweater party season is upon us.  I am fortunate enough to have wonderful friends who know better than to invite me to such a terrifying event.  They also know a lot of other things, like how to throw great parties.  One of the most gracious gifts friends can give us during the holidays is opening up their homes (whether a massive mansion or teeny studio) to host a festive get together.  In a city like New York, friends fast become second families and there’s a reason things like “Friendsgiving” exist.  Something my mother taught me from the time I was invited to slumber parties was to never arrive empty handed.  I diligently practice this form of social etiquette to this day and always arrive bearing gifts, whether they be basic bottles of wine or a bags full of glowsticks.  I never arrive unannounced or empty handed and to ensure that you will be invited to next year’s fete, I suggest you do the same (and avoid using your dinner napkin as a headwrap).  Below are my picks for gifts to thank your generous hosts for having you this holiday season.
