Weekend Links: Christmas Edition!

Friday, December 25, 2009

Hope you and loved ones are enjoying a nice long, holiday weekend! I don't have many links to share today as I have been recovering from a cold and doing the last minute scramble to get my shopping done before my trip to Los Angeles. I swear I'm still alive and I'll be back to blogging form next week!! But here are a few fun finds:
  • I was honored to be a guest judge in the British Style Bloggers' Christmas Competition. There are four stylish ladies who rocked their Christmas party outfit best. Voting is open to the public now-- so head over here to pick your favorite!
  • A friend alerted me to a blog about one man's quest to deal with his wife's Hello Kitty obsession called Kitty Hell, which I finally checked out this week. Must read!
  • I downloaded this popular Skee-Ball app for my iPhone and I have to say that the game is not only simple, but addictive. Well worth the $0.99!
  • And if you have some spare time on your hands, I highly recommend that you check out my wonderful guest bloggers who contributed to the Gift Yourself series this month. It's always fun to see what other people would pick for themselves over the holidays...
P.S. Last weekend, I had a chance to shoot some photographs for an Etsy vintage and knitwear store with Lindsey of Saucy Glossie as our lovely model. Lindsey was such a pro as it was freezing outside and we ran around in circles removing her coat, then throwing it over her shoulders again to run inside and change. I had a lot of fun playing photographer, though I need to be a little more instructive to my models next time instead of just yelling "Work! Work it, girl!" Here are a few teaser photos from that day... More details to come when my friends finally launch the shop!!


(um-- can you believe this is vintage Contempo Casual???)





Have a wonderful weekend!!

Hey D! great links as always, I had to send the Hello Kitty one to my best friend because one of her friends can't stand all things Hello Kitty ahhahahaha we tease him a lot about it, I think she even bought him one of those ginormous almost life sized Hello Kitty Pez dispensers as a gag gift! It was awesome.

Any way, if you have an iPhone, download the Doodlejump game. My friends introduced me to it on our road trip to LA a few weeks ago and I kid you not, that game is freaking addictive. I still get urges to play it and I don't even have an iPhone yet!
