My Holiday Wish List x TSC Lookbook

The Skinny Confidential x Christmas.

1 || 2 || 3 || 4 || 5 || 6

Ok so obviously I am relieved ( as shit ) that The Skinny Confidential Gift Guide/Lookbook has launched.

It’s kind of a his/her lookbook so definitely check it out if you’re looking for your BF or husband. The full magazine format can be found here.

Since it’s a yearly tradition to showcase my holiday wish list on the blog, I couldn’t not not post this post!

So ta-da.

Here’s what I’m dying for during the holidays ( each piece is found throughout the lookbook too ).

Is there anything I’m missing? Would love to know! What’s on your wish list?

The Best Damn…Flirty Perfume

The Skinny Confidential talks Marc Jacobs.

HIIIII!

As you guys know I’m kind of obsessed with Marc Jacobs fragrance ‘Daisy.’ My God-dad, Mike, bought it for me when I was having a crappy day a couple months ago & I’ve been hooked ever since.

First & foremost it’s flirty & sexy without being too overwhelming. BY THE WAY I CAN’T STAND overwhelming fragrances ( << biggest headache in the world- like why do people wear lumbering scents? Ugh! )!! I can’t even pretend to go there— so I always stick to light, fresh perfumes.

In my opinion when you walk in to a room your perfume shouldn’t dominate the whole room, it should complement you ( & your cute outfit )- a la Marilyn Monroe. Because the best thing ever is when you give someone a quick hug & they go “OMG what perfume is that- you smell so yummy?”

Daisy, duh.

Also, I should mention that my house is all white so the bottle really goes well with that vibe.

These pictures were shot before a holiday cocktail party last weekend. I was totally feeling this stunner polka dot top with a couple of gold rings & a spritz of Daisy.

Anyway this is my go-to when it comes to perfume. Best part? I can wear it to gym, a date night, &/or a holiday party.

What’s your favorite go-to scent? Would love to hear?

TSC Gift Guide: Under $50…Cha-Ching!

The Skinny Confidential talks sales.

1 || 2 || 3 || 4 || 5 || 6 || 7 || 8

Are you feeling the theme this week on TSC?

Clearly it’s HOLIDAY SALES. Honestly I figured this year I wouldn’t wait until 5 pm on Christmas Eve to do all my holiday shopping ( true story, year after year ).

Anyway this year it’s all about planning ahead ( HA! FOR ONCE! ) & I’m showcasing every step of the way with you guys. Did I mention that I’m going to be finding items that don’t break the bank?

Because I am— & they’re all cool as shit too.

SOOOO totally not going to be recommending for you guys to buy a $420 dollar clutch for your sister. Instead all TSC gift guides will be affordable, chic items that every family member will love!

Is anyone stuck on what to buy someone specific? AKA grandma, boyfriend, dog, etc.? Let me know & I’ll try to do a collage that fits with your needs!

Ok, I’m going to listen to Christmas jazz on repeat ( Pandora !! ) & drink pumpkin pie coffee & light gingerbread candles & just be all holiday-ish. See ya!

P.S. real talk: I bought the red lace dress for myself because it’s looks EXACTLY like the $300 Nightcap one BUT it’s $34 dollars. So, how could I not, not buy it?

OMFG.

Can we just talk about True Food Kitchen?

I went there today during for a lunch break ( yes, I peeled myself away the computer, which is like, almost impossible ).

So.

True Food Kitchen.

Immediately I see they’re growing fresh herbs outside the restaurant, there’s a line out the door, & the atmosphere screams ‘CLEAN EATS.’ Think lots of veggies, fresh pressed juice, chia seeds, herbs, &/or no sick-o, sugary-filled condiments.

Basically the menu’s simple & all organic, sustainable, fresh foods.

We ordered juices & the fresh tortilla soup to split & then I choose the quinoa burger as an entree.

YUM.

I’m a big open-facer so it was a great choice.

WTF’s a ‘big open-facer?’

Welp, I like my sandwiches open-faced.

Because a PB & J sandie is way better open-faced, FYI.

So naturally, the quinoa burger ( but open-faced ) was a win.

Anyway, point: if you’re ever in San Diego, make sure True Food Kitchen in Fashion Valley is on your itinerary.

& BTW: no one’s paying me to say this; I just really think this place is the shit.

Find the menu here & thank me later.

Sooooo good it hurts.

Happy Monday, X L

Christmas was filled with people I love, a little eggnog, & a lot of laughing.

But shocker: I’m dead tired.

Like, so, so, ridiculously-falling-asleep-while-typing-this-about-to-cry-tired.

So we’re laying low with some friends tonight & hopefully we’ll end up in bed watching the cartoon version of The Grinch. Buttttt the night will involve lotssss of popcorn ( << I bought a popcorn machine that I couldn’t be more excited about (!!!) ) & mugs of green tea.

So buh-bye Christmas; lezzz get ready for 2014!
