With the holidays quickly approaching the hunt for the perfect party outfit is on. 

These are some beautiful and festive outfits that I'm loving (thank you Pinterest).

And what would an outfit be without shoes & jewels?! Loving these ...




What will you be wearing to your holiday parties this year? I'm leaning toward a jumpsuit, but these ideas are surely acting as inspiration!

All The Rage This Holiday Season

It's the most wonderful time of the year ....

Until you become an adult and the holidays become stressful. Finding the time to buy presents for loved ones, wrapping them, dealing with the endless crowds at the mall and even worse - the madness of parking lots around this time of year.

I'm here to help make your holiday gift buying a little easier ... well actually E! is. I came across their 2014 gift guide and it's glorious!!

   

Check out their picks for the women or man in your life. Looking for more tech related presents not a problem, they've got you covered! Or how about something for the kiddos?!

They also have some great ideas for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, your four legged friends and more. Check it all out here - thanks again E!

Happy shopping for whatever is on your wish list to give or receive this year!

workin' that photoshop

So I had my first real-life sighting of an overtly Photoshopped advertisement. It feels a little bit like an internet-using milestone. I found it on Pinterest, became suspicious of the clothing models ridiculously skinny upper legs, clicked on the link to Asos, and lo and behold, Photoshop.

wait, her calves are wider than her thighs...
I'm sure that this unsuspecting woman has perfectly lovely legs that would do a wonderful job of selling me Hunter fleece inserts (I totally need these, but that's besides the point...oh! something shiny...) but I just don't see why the post-production team felt the need to edit away her very-important inner thighs (I mean, how else would you warm up your hands, and wouldn't crossing your legs feel very strange?). Not to mention her square lady bits. Not natural, folks. I'm insulted that you thought you could pass this off as a normally-grown human body.

really?...really?
Have you happened upon a naturally-occuring victim of Photoshop? I'm always curious about those travel pictures on Pinterest with unnaturally vibrant colors. How did it make you feel? Have you ever Photoshopped something? I also did that for the first time recently. I had a very cute picture of Sally with a ponytail and the elastic was bright blue and she was wearing pink and black (hey, you know, sometimes you just use the first elastic you can get your hands on) so I went back and "color-filled" the elastic to appear black. It was awesome.

til the photo shops,
