Why is it that I have the most expensive taste when it comes to, well everything. And the worst part is I have no money to spend on these things, so if there are any wealthy, attractive, (preferably Jewish) doctors out there reading my blog interested in being me sugar daddy, let me know, I am interested in meeting you. (Why a Jewish doctor would be reading my blog is beyond me but hey, whatever works!) Anyways, back to my expensive tastes. It’s December and it’s getting to be pretty cold outside again, so that sucks. But because of the cold weather I have been checking out some of my favorite stores for gloves, hats and scarves. Of course I am drawn to the items that are warm and comfy but comfy comes at a price. I am in love with these leather, shearling cuffed, silk lined gloves from Anthropologie but why do they have to be $200? I really love leather gloves right now, they look so classy, but does anyone know if they actually keep your hands warm and toasty? I like these too, cashmere lining and a beautiful gold zipper on the top. J.Crew you outdid yourself again. I also love hats, which is strange because I can’t wear hats (my noggin is just a wee big) but for anyone who can squeeze into these should definitely check them out. I love the trapper hats; anything fur lined for that matter just seems ideal. I’m also big on beanies that cover your ears. Not the ones that sit on the crown of your head, what’s the point? Earmuffs are pretty great too, who wants cold ears… the answer no one. These can also fit over my head (a key factor) and they don’t look ridiculous over my curly hair. I wish everyone lots of luck on finding great winter accessories, check out some of my links provided to ease your body into the winter months!
Ps. For anyone looking to find a great scarf check out the ‘snoods’ here and here. I love mine it’s great for blocking cold wind from your face and neck. And you should definitely check out the Norah Jones/Willie Nelson duet of "Baby It's Cold Outside" so great.

If you don't know me personally, you are probably unaware of my love for Apple products. The sleek design of my MacBook Pro, the apple logo and the simplicity in design is just the beginning. I had planned on getting an iPhone as soon as I was scheduled for an upgrade. I was unfortunate enough to have a slight altercation with the Verizon representatives, I will never back down, it was their fault. The very smart (insert sarcasm here) representative was nice enough to let me know that after my Blackberry white screened in July, right after my birthday, that I would only have to wait until November 5 to get a new phone; as I was ready for an upgrade then. To my dismay, he forgot to mention that it was November 5, 2012! I, of course, was not too pleased with the wrong date he gave me and proceeded to
fight discuss with the Verizon representatives an alternative plan so they could comply with my demands request at receiving the iPhone 4s. I only had to speak with four representatives to get the same answer four different times which was, there is no way in hell you can get the iPhone 4s. The only way for me to get it is by waiting until the early upgrade, July 5, 2012. Not to mention that my 22nd birthday is July 6, 2012 which is when my Blackberry took its life (in 2011) … so you’re telling me I have to wait a YEAR to get an iPhone. NO WAY. Let’s just say I was not too happy. The benefits of having an iPhone are endless. The apps that could get me through my somber days, a camera that wins awards, a music collection to sing my heart out, an app that tells me where I can catch the bus, the unlimited pins I could look at on my walk home, even what jobs are available after graduation not to mention Siri and so much more, all that lies ahead, if I ever get an iPhone. So whoever picked my name out of the hat at Thanksgiving, or whoever reads this and just feels bad should do one thing and one thing only…because all I want for Hanukah is the iPhone.
ps. I want it in black (but of course would take it in white)
In the Jewish religion, Chai pronounced with that thick, throat wrenching, cchhhh sound means “to life”. Chai is life, but I’m talking about my delicious, throat warming, chai tea. On the occasional Monday morning I may feel the need for a quick pick-me-up, which really means a desperate need for my grande chai tea latte with nonfat milk and a shot of espresso. However, while I was perusing the aisles of the local grocery store I was pleased to find Tazo Chai Tea Latte Concentrate. This was a gift from G-d. Not only is it delicious, it’s only $5! What a deal. I was able to make a handful of delicious iced or hot chai tea drinks, which saved me more than a few trips to Starbucks. This has simply added to my love for chai and the best way to combat the cold weather of Wisconisn.
