The Glamour Addict Holiday Gift Guide: Part 2

Welcome to the second installment of The Glamour Addict Holiday Gift Guide!  You'll see that in my first installment, I posted one of my favorite Christmas commercials.  Well, being that I come from a Catholic father and a Jewish mother, I've gotta honor both sides of the fam!  With that said, take a look at this HILARIOUS video of A Capella group The Maccabeats singing their Hanukkah song "Candlelight," a Weird Al-type version of Taio Cruz's "Dynamite."  Happy Holidays, and Happy Shopping!!!

Lulus Kelly Charcoal Grey Arm Warmers - $19
I am DYING over these cozy arm warmers from Lulus.com, and here's why: They are the perfect marriage of function and fashion.  There's no WAY you'll be cold with these puppies; they're 100% cotton, reach up to the elbow, and have ribbing on the ends to hold them in place!  AND, their adorable, cable-knit design just SCREAMS winter coziness.  They allow you to use your fingers for rummaging through your bag or texting, and look STELLAR with a fabulous holiday manicure!  

Essie Luxeffects Holiday Line - $34.89 on Amazon.com
Speaking of holiday manicures: OMG!  Essie's new holiday line of sparkly, glittery topcoats is BEYOND.  Each one (there are five of 'em) achieves a different effect due to the multiple sizes of the flakes; some are smaller and give a subtle hint of shimmer, while others are chunkier and make a more dramatic statement.  If you just can't wait until mid-December - when the line hits salons - buy 'em now on Amazon.com!  Who knew there were so many different ways to sparkle?  ;)  

West Elm Chalkboard Candlepot - $25
Chalkboard Candlepot, Cucumber CitrusI LOVE West Elm's adorable (and interactive) take on a candle!  It puts a fun new spin on a classic gift.  Available in Cucumber Citrus, Ramsey Apple, or Vanilla Fig, these soy wax candles are great to personalize for all kindsa celebrations!!!

Madewell Stripe-Sleeve Cablecrew Sweater - $88

We love you anyway,
Mark Darcy!
I am BEYOND obsessed with this adorable sweater by Madewell!  Love the striped detailing on the sleeve, and REALLY love the fact that it's totally festive for the holidays without being so obvious.  (Think Colin Firth's reindeer sweater in Bridget Jones's Diary.)  Available in red or grey, the red color is pretty popular and tough to get online right now, so either visit your local Madewell store to pick one up, or call the number listed on the "Contact Us" page of their website, where someone is available to assist you 24 hours a day!

Thomas Fuchs Creative Skull Bottle Stopper - $98
Diamond Ring
Bottle Opener
Pop Rock Diamond Ring Bottle Opener - $12
Skull Bottle Stopper
I'm a big believer in sprinkling a little glamour wherever you can, and these fun bar accessories do just that!  How glamorous are they?!  PERFECT to give as a hostess gift or stocking stuffer.
