Books are amazing because they make great gifts and are cheap and if you are seriously broke all you need is an ID to get a library card. If you have no proof of identification you most likely aren't on a computer stumbling across the only blog with less page views than this.
So...with that said, if you need to read away the weeks in between Thanksgiving and whatever you celebrate in December I highly recommend the following:
I saw someone reading this on the subway the other day and it inspired me. I watched all his movies a couple years ago so now I'll try my hand at reading his books. Color me laughing for several months!
I haven't read this one yet but it's on my list and if we run into each other we'll have something to talk about. Finally! And if you don't want to know about the lives of Carol King and her weird controlling husband and who "You're So Vain" is actually about then we don't have much in common anyway. No wonder we never have anything to talk about.
This store is amazing. If you happen to be in Union Square in NYC anytime soon please do yourself and everyone you need to buy gifts for a favor and stop in. You will leave happy (and sad that you are leaving) and with a large tote bag full of your entire shopping list. Unless you are buying gifts for children. Don't go in here in that is the case.
It's weird stuff like this that makes me the happiest in the world. Please tell my mother to insert said horse into stocking. Thank you.
If you didn't know, coasters make for great stocking stuffers!
You don't celebrate Christmas? Well then these Heroes of the Torah glasses will be the perfect Hannauahahkahaah gift for Uncle Saul! Or for me because I'm marrying a Jew and I love these glasses and want to drink Kosher wine out of them. I love them!
Maybe Dad is sad that election year is 3 years away - brighten his day with some political mugs and pair it with some good coffee!
Sorry y'all - this poor girl got herself a jiz-ob and is now making money!!! Whassssuuup?!?!? That means my e-shopping has recently gotten a little out of control as I spend my lunch hour (i.e. ten minutes at my desk while i scarf down usually Korean food in record time and make everyone around me uncomfortable) perusing the internet aisles looking for sweet wardrobe enhancers. Bring it!
I bought this jacket and I love it. It's a bit on the pricey side and ultimately does not fit me (a little on the small side) but I still wear it and it's a serious compliment magnet.
This skirt is a must have and it's from Asia which means it's automatically awesome. I want these because they are cheap, cartoonish and I can walk in them. I bought a chunky wedge and seriously am a full on palsy victim in them because I have no skillz. None.
I probably have 5 bags that look like this but some dude tried grabbing at my purse last night and so I'm thinking I need more messenger and less over the shoulder if I'm going to be the anti-mugging bait I've always wanted to be.
