Minnetonka Velvet Slippers, $39.95
I’m one of those people who keep the thermostat up obscenely high during the winter. I have poor circulation! My toes turn into ice cubes, so I’m always padding around my apartment in some type of warm sock situation. I love the luxe sapphire color of these cozy Minnetonka velvet slippers.
The ANDI Midnight Metal Bag, $198
You can call me Emily Poppins, because I like to keep all of my belongings with me at all times in a big-ass bag. Need Neosporin? I’ve got it in my bag. Snacks? In my bag. Lint roller? In my bag. But a great utilitarian bag that holds my entire life and is non-bulky looking is one of the hardest things to find. That’s why I’m obsessed with the ANDI bag, which is super lightweight, has loads of zip-pockets, fits my laptop and has straps that transform into a backpack. It’s *the* perfect functional bag.
Accoutrements Giant Christmas Tree Googly Eyes, $6.85
Fuck tradition. This year I want my tree to have giant googly eyes.
Prynt Pocket, $150
Since most of your Gen Z relatives have never heard of disposal cameras (unless they buy one at Urban Outfitters) or may not even know where real photographs come from (lol), this is the perfect gift to give them for the holidays! It attaches to your smartphone and simply prints all the pics you take. Genius.
Claire’s Rose Gold Cat Ear Headphones, $20
Um, I’m picking up a pair of rose gold cat headphones the next time I’m at the mall because…do I have to explain?
Bobbi Brown Rich Sparkle Moonstone Eye Shadow, $38
I spotted this Bobbi Brown eyeshadow on Instagram. It immediately caught my attention because as it was applied with a brush, it looked almost wet, twinkling on skin like some kind of makeup magic. The perfect, beige-with-an-intense-shimmer shade is gorgeous, and I had to have it! So, I went to Bobbi Brown’s site, Macy’s, and Nordstrom, and it was SOLD OUT. HG’s office manager saved the day and sent me this link to Harper’s Bazaar’s shop, which luckily sells it, and I bought a few eyeshadows — one for me, and some for a few friends for the holidays. Buy it before it sells out again!
