Gawker Stalker

Bye bye productivity...

For those of you not familiar with Food Gawker, kiss your afternoon goodbye.  You can scroll through page after page of the most beautiful food you've ever seen.  Then once you click on a picture, you are brought to a new food blog, which links to other food blogs.  Total Pandora's box that will suck hours out of your life, but well worth it. 

As if that wasn't enough, they now have Dwelling Gawker, Craft Gawker, and for those of you who aren't as jaded as I, Wedding Gawker.

You know where I will be until well into 2011...

The Coaster From Ipanema

I'm in full post-Christmas hangover, planning all of my resolutions that I won't call resolutions because no one keeps those.  Right?  Well, being more financially responsible is my "resolution that isn't a resolution".  So unfortunately these insanely adorable Jonathan Adler Jet Set coasters ($48) will not be a part of my life this year (tear)...
All I want is to sit in the sun and set down a Mai Tai or a Caipirinha on one of these bad boys.  Instead I'll sit at my desk and stare out the window.  At dirty snow.

Holiday Gift Guide... A Little Late

Erin, one of  my few loyal readers commented on how long it's been since I've posted.  So in my effort to get into the holiday spirit (with 2 days to go) here are some gifts that I think would be lovely to give or receive.  Mostly receive.

Now it's back to hot cocoa and blasting Christmas music to try and de-Scrooge and get in the full Holiday swing with just minutes to spare.  It feels a lot like cramming for a test.
