Happy FRIDAY!!!!

If your plans this weekend include some holiday decorating, welcome to my world. Yes, my friends think I'm insane and they might be correct, but I LOVE Christmas and the holidays in general and I feel like time passes too quickly for me to enjoy it when I only have decorations up for a few weeks. At least that's what I tell myself... anyhow, that's what I'll be up to this weekend. After, of course, the ubiquitous child's birthday party I'll be attending w/ my daughter. One thing they never tell you about becoming a mother- after age 3, you will spend roughly 1/4 of your life at birthday parties. 

Remember when Kid Rock was running for Senate? Well, it was actually just a joke but he sold legit merch and now fans are wondering... what's going to happen to all that money? We don't know yet! 

And according to the word of the year for 2017 is "Fake News." Yeah, that's about right... considering that phrase has been used and and abused for nearly the entire year by our current pres. 

Sweet tooths rejoice! Hershey's has released their first new bar in like, 20 years! Presenting Hershey's Gold (out Dec. 1). If you love that sweet and savory together... this is right up your alley!

Adele has some very sweet things to say about Christopher Bailey. I do love me some Burberry. 

Christopher Bailey and Burberry were the first major fashion house to dress me and my big arse! He is so enthusiastic about all British talent and he always collaborated with my insecurities to create outfits for me that have become a signature for me and made me feel fucking great! Mate, you'll be missed but can't wait to see what you do next. Love x

Love ice cream? Well, you're definitely going to want to check out this company's Thanksgiving flavors. Salt and Straw! Goat Cheese and Pumpkin Pie? SURE! 

My new addiction is kickstarters... and this Colorado couple has sucked me right in with Pit Liquor. It's an all-natural, local, toxin-free whiskey deoderant. Now, I NEVER use deoderant with any chemicals or anything in it, but I'm super stoked to try this once it's gets going and based on how close they are to their goal- it's gonna happen! You can check it out here. Oh, and this isn't an ad or anything. Anything I post on my blog is just stuff that I'm personally interested in so I like to share! 

You just can't make stuff like this up... in the most ironic story from today- the dude who shot himself in the junk after robbing a hot dog stand

One last thing.. CBS may be bringing back The Twilight Zone. WHAAAAAAT!!!! That may be the thing to get me to subscribe to their streaming service- I mean, if Star Trek didn't get me to take the plunge, I didn't know until now what could (and I LOVE Star Trek). I have very palpable memories of my grandmother watching the old Twilight Zones when I was a kid- of course she let me watch as well and I have loved them ever since. I even have the books that came out decades ago and still reread them. I loved me some Rod Serling and every New Year's Day I still look forward to the marathon on the SciFi network. This could be the best news I've heard all day.
