Old Navy is running a sweet sale on their pajama bottoms, both in-store and online. They're only $10 - I felt like a kid in a candy store, picking up assorted bottoms of every color and pattern. Pick yours before they're all gone.

Pumas. Classic. Cool. Wearable till you're 70. If you don't own a pair of Pumas...well, you should. Ahhh, Clinique. It was the first "major" brand of makeup that I started using in high school. And yet, it lasts the test of time (and wrinkles, age spots...). The Naturally Holiday collection is perfect for creating that fresh-faced look: jet black mascara, Almost Lipstick and berry-tinted blush.

- To highlight one of your fabulous features.
- To create the idea of you as gift. Because anyone would be lucky to unwrap you!

I questioned the need for a foundation brush until a MAC makeup artist used one on me. Then I shut my mouth and bought one. It was a good decision. I like the 190 because it really gets into the sides of my nose, which are perpetually red without serious intervention.

- A time to give thanks for all the blessings in your life
- A time to eat, drink and be merry
- The official kick-off to December holidays
What are the essential components of Thanksgiving?
- Family and friends and Santa Claus rolling into Herald Square at the end of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (ok, that's one of my essentials)
- Delicious food, festive drinks (alcohol optional, unless you're part of my family) and great music (preferably holiday-related)
- A festive outfit
I do not believe in showing up to Thanksgiving in jeans and some sweater that you found in your closet.. Taking some time with your appearance on Thanksgiving - a holiday that can be either a big love fest of food and family or your own personal nightmare of food and family - will make you feel more festive, which in turn ups the chances that you will enjoy yourself.
Whether you go buy a new outfit or pull on your favorite ___________ (insert article of clothing here), kick off the holidays right. They'll only be as merry as you make them!
A nice, roomy tunic looks polished and fun - best of all, it won't pull or cling so you'll feel comfortable taking that second serving of stuffing.
A dramatic necklace will put all eyes on you (as they should be!), while jazzing up a basic button down shirt.When visiting someone's home in Minnesota, it's common for everyone to remove their shoes (don't want to track in all that snow). So it's important to remember that you might be called upon to be barefoot during the holidays - these socks are warm and cozy, and funny.

This jumper was on super clearance at Target this weekend; I got mine for $7.48. I paired with with a $10 long-sleeved crew neck from Old Navy ( in slate blue), and dark black tights and heels that have been in my closet forever.
Several full-bootied friends swear by their Calvins - available in both regular and petite plus sizes. The big selling point? The fact that the pocket stitching is very light; it's there, but not drawing too much attention to an already attention-getting area. The pockets are placed a little higher up, which provides an instant butt lift.My flat rear looks fantastic in Old Navy's "Flirt" style of jean. I especially like the wide leg trouser style - cause the lack of natural shaping below my beltline benefits from some structure. The dark rinse is also flattering - not only on my butt, but on anyone's butt. Avoid whiskering and fading.
