I have been having a love affair with watches for as long as I can remember. I guess you would say I am quite promiscuous because I can’t stick to wearing only one watch. My Dad collects vintage gold watches and he passed the gene down to me because year after year I add new watches to my own personal collection. I went through a serious Michael Kors watch phase for a couple years and have three of his watches, all oversized mens style. They are classic time pieces that I will wear forever. Lately I have been coveting smaller more feminine watches and Craig bought me a Marc By Marc Jacobs Dinky watch for an early Christmas gift. I have been wearing it none stop and it weighs next to nothing. The Dinky comes in a few different styles and would make a great holiday gift. I chose the rose gold one with a blue face because it seemed the most wearable and very lady like.
I am loving these watches as well all Marc By Marc Jacobs

Behold the shear power of this ridiculously, random gift guide. I’ve tried to cover funny, kitschy, techy, retro, cool and useful. Remember, childhood nostalgia runs deep in the practice of gift giving. It’s not the price tag that determines a great gift, but the unique connection to the individual. I grew up in the 1980s, so anything LED or 8 bit is going to bring me to my knees. Remember jocks tormenting geeks in films like Revenge of the Nerds or Back to the Future… the glorious catch phrases. Within our gadget-obsessed culture, nerds are put onto pedestals to be admired… and rightfully so! While you’re here geeking-out, be sure to browse my more “mature” mens gift guides.

Tis finally the season for holiday themed parties, decorating, and lots and lots of shopping. And one of my favorite colors to wear this time of year is silver. I love to add a little silver sparkle to my wardrobe and it is a bonus for me if said item contains glitter! I don’t know why but silver and silver glitter just get me into such a holiday mood and I always feel a little more fancy when surrounding myself with it. I have lots and lots of packing to work on during the next 11 days but I plan on enjoying this holiday season and watching lots of Christmas movies before bed. Happy Shopping!

Hope everyone’s refreshed after their Thanksgiving Day turkey naps. You know what day it is, Black Friday! Always remember the blackest Friday will always be Friday the 13th (sorry). Today I bring you the mens watch guide, representing a pretty wide range of price points. I’ve been wearing a watch everyday since grade school. Time has always intrigued, infuriated and baffled me. You’ll find me glancing at my watch with borderline OCD regularity. Since everyone’s phone is equipped with a slew of timekeeping capabilities, some folks think watches are obsolete. I don’t agree, timepieces are beautifully crafted machines that last a lifetime. Some are wound, others are battery-powered, solar-powered and even motion-driven. Nothing says more about a man’s style than the character of his timepiece.

I think you know by now that I am obsessed with all things cat related. I love my own two guys Rocco and Rufus, stray cats, cat eyes, cat prints, and the list goes on. Surprisingly enough I don’t have many cat inspired items in my wardrobe. I rectified this last week when I found a cat tee shirt playing the turn tables on sale for five dollars at Target. After taking the first bite so to speak this recent purchase won’t be my last.

4. Cat Necklace
10. Cat Case
Happy eating and shopping. Black friday awaits.

I think it is safe to say that 98 percent of the time you can find me in leopard print, I just love it. And day after day month after month these shoes keep my feet company. I found them last year at TJ Maxx for around 39 dollars a great score since they are over 100 dollars on line. They have seen better days since I constantly wear them but I can’t help it they are perfect. I love the pony hair leopard print and the tiny gold studs that decorate the toes. I like to pretend I am Audrey or Marilyn in the 1960′s when I wear them with a pair of cropped leggings and black dress. Leopard print is a classic and staple in my wardrobe and I don’t see it going out of style ever. Next on my radar is a leopard print coat since my vintage one is falling apart. We are going to be spending Christmas in New York City and I would love to beat the cold in something stylish. Find some other of my favorite leopard accessories below.
