I Want Candy

No need to worry about putting on the holiday pudge this year because now you can get lip-smacking sweet treats at Sephora, thanks to Dylan's Candy Bar Re-Treat, a new line of bath and body products from the Queen of Confections herself.

The entire Dylan's Candy Bar Re-Treat collection smells good enough to eat and leaves you with the most irresistible skin you've ever had. From the truly decadent Chocolate Cupcake Lip Saver ($8) to the luxurious Coconut Bon Bon Ice Cream Sugar Scrub ($20) you can indulge without the troublesome worry of calorie counting (save that for the turkey and sweet potato pie!). Head to Sephora now to find your favorite flavor!


Eat Your Words

Since I got engaged I'm becoming more and more interested in housewares and furniture (for the registry!), particularly the ones on CB2.com, Crate and Barrel's baby sis.

Everything on CB2.com is just as chic as Crate and Barrel's inventory, but the prices are a bit more suitable for the current state of our economy. Most recently I fell in love with the CB2 Subliminal Dinnerware set, which allows me to do two of my favorite things: eat and read!

They're made from white porcelain and feature black and grey letters with hidden messages that remind you to mind your manners at the table. The Dinner Plate ($3.95) says "Clean your plate," the Salad Plate ($2.95) says "Use a napkin," and the Big Bowl ($3.95) says "Don't slurp." And when you get thirsty there's a Subliminal Cooler ($.4.50) that encourages you to "Drink up."


There Will Be More...

Looks like our darling foursome will be back on the big screen for a sequel to the hit Sex and the City Movie! Wonder if they'll give Carrie a baby to play with Charlotte's little one...


Stylish First Family-Elect

Barack and his family will have many challenges to face in the next four years, but style won't be one of them. As usual, the First Lady-Elect, Michelle Obama, looked flawless on election night in a Narciso Rodriguez dress from the designer's Spring 2009. Didn't the entire First Family-Elect look absolutely gorgeous?!!

Yes We Can!

Rosa sat so Martin could walk so Barack could run so my children can fly! I have never been more proud to be an American than I am today!
