we’ve all been busy, busy bees with christmas sneaking up right around the corner.  hopefully presents are wrapped, stockings are hung, and you even have a little time to enjoy the holiday’s charms, pick out the perfect party frock, and spend uncompromised time with loved ones.

however, that’s rarely the case and it’s a rush for most of us to make sure the bows are beautiful, cookies are frosted, and garlands properly strung.  don’t fret; here (and here) are easy holiday decorating tips and the new york times holiday gift guide to help with last minute purchases…

…hallelujah for overnight shipping : )
