This year on New Year’s day, I’m going to call my mom and my closest friends to exchange New Year’s greetings, give oranges and red envelopes to my friends’ kids and have a tiny but extravagant banquet with my friends in town.

Have you ever wanted to look like a living fireworks display? Perhaps you want your face to glitter so brightly that everyone in the room will be drawn to you like a moth to a flame.

Give your guests something to tap their foot to but nothing that will make them have to get up and dance because everyone hates sweater stench.
It’s the eve of a new year, and the best way to get a headstart on a rad 2015 is dressin’ to the nines to say goodbye to 2014. Whether you are feelin’ dapper as hell or on a shimmering ethereal tip, we’ve rounded up some awesome threads to look #flawless in.
We asked y’all to use the hashtag #HappyHoligays on social media this season, and boy, did you ever!

As for keeping your hands warm, the best way to go is a faux fur muff. I really don’t understand why people don’t still wear muffs all the time. They’re great! They double as a great way to keep your hands nice and cozy and an excuse to make lesbian sex jokes.
“At some point, probably around the time I became a surly teenager and wanted something of my very own to craft and control and create, I decided to start making gingerbread too. At first this was just something I did alone, but gradually my younger brother began helping me, then my older brother, and it kind of became a tradition by accident.”
The Orange is the New Black cast is putting a very Litchfield spin on “The 12 Days of Christmas.”
If you or someone you love has been affected by 90s Kid Syndrome™, enable their disease with these gifts that are way cool and da bomb.
Don’t let an all-black dress code get you down. Use pieces you already own to create pulled-together looks worthy of the holiday season.
