If you’re still craving some sugar after all those Christmas cookies, we’ve found the perfect wintry recipe for any sweet tooth: eggnog pumpkin pie! Just when it couldn’t get more holiday-y. Being one of the biggest dessert-lovers that I know, I’ve dealt with my fair share of baking blogs. Sugar Plum is one of the best that I’ve found, as it provides a great variety of recipes but boasts a whopping 197 posts under the “chocolate” category (my personal favorite when it comes to baking).

  Finally, someone has taken it upon themselves to create jewelry for that previously unadorned canvas, your crotch. That's right ladies, now you can hang cute, sparkley jewels from your pants. You can even wear it with your bathing suit! The video for this is amazeballs, but if you are in the office, make sure to turn it down before you start it 'cause it may just knock your socks off. Seriously, after watching this I had to check my calendar to make sure it wasn't suddenly 1998. Brit & X-tina would have totes rocked this look on their bootylicious low-rise flairs.

As we usher in the new year, let’s look back and reflect upon the most meaningful moments of 2012. And, because I’m a millennial and apparently it’s all I’m good for, let’s define “most meaningful moments” as “awesome Youtube clips”. More specifically, Youtube clips featuring adorable children covering pop songs.  The Youtube cover song is a tricky landing to stick, but this year was chock full of youngsters who pulled it off, no problem.

For me, the words "gingerbread house" will forever call up images of me and my siblings as wee little towheads, covered in icing with nothing to show for our efforts but a two-graham cracker lean-to. But to others, the gingerbread house is an artistic medium in itself and the ultimate holiday crafting challenge. Here are some spectacular houses, rounded up from all around the internet, that will serve to inspire you, should you set out on your own gingerbread spirit quest.  1. Nevie Pie's brightly-colored little cottage plays off a popular Christmas tune.

Like many of my underemployed and vintage-loving peers, I spend a somewhat absurd amount of time and money on Etsy. Whenever I’m in need of a one-of-a-kind gift, keepsake, or outfit, this vintage and handmade marketplace is always where I begin my search.  Never do I appreciate Etsy more than during the holidays. The site is a veritable treasure trove of unique gifts and fabulous holiday ensembles. And the fact that I can do my eclectic/vintage holiday shopping from my couch rather than the teeming hell pit that is Midtown at Christmas? Priceless.

Nothing beats a dual-use gadget! Like a flat iron and curler in one. Pens with wacky attachments. The Swiss Army knife. But now, comes a vibrator and flash drive in ONE! Crave, a San Francisco based start up, designed this nifty tool originally to be charged on a computer to get rid of messy cords and dying batteries. But then people asked “Can we store stuff on it?” and so, the DUET was born. Fully charged, the Duet has a life span of four hours, multiple vibration and power levels and storage space starting at 8GB.
