Marc Jacobs store on Melrose, 2005
I’ve accepted the fact that the holidays are different now than they were when I was a kid, but that doesn’t mean they should be any less enjoyable. I love the month of December and all of the little plans that fill up my calendar. This weekend, we’re getting our tree, attending a much-anticipated Gingerbread House party, drinking eggnog and enjoying the slightly cooler LA weather…and I couldn’t be happier. I’ll see you back here (and on Luckymag.com) on Monday!

I’m so excited to share that I was selected as Lucky Magazine’s Guest Blogger of the month! You can find me on Page 30 of the January 2010 issue and I’ll be blogging on Luckymag.com from December 7 to 11 (don’t worry, I’ll still be writing daily here as well). I’ll be sharing some of my tips and tricks for getting through the holiday season fashionably with as little stress as possible.

I can’t remember the last time I wrote a letter to Santa, but I figure a post dedicated to my wish list is just as effective. I appreciate practical presents like socks and lint removers, but there’s something special about extravagant luxuries that you wouldn’t buy for yourself. That doesn’t necessarily mean expensive (the pretty file folders I picked out below are only $18), but simply things that add a bit of joy and glamour to your daily routine.
Ray-Ban Outdoorsman Aviator Sunglasses – $140
Topshop Starburst Sequin Dress – $135

You’d think that after all of the rich food I ate over Thanksgiving that I’d be subsisting on carrots and celery through December. Instead, last night I decided that Mac and Cheese would be a more appropriate meal and Kraft just wasn’t going to cut it. I used this recipe and substituted Horseradish Cheddar and added some truffle salt for a little bite and an indulgent touch. My tastes have changed a lot since when I was a kid, but comfort food never gets old.
