Rifle's entire 2010 Holiday Collection is amazing, but I especially love their custom illustrated cards! You can get your cards customized with portraits of your entire family (including pets!). Aren't they adorable?
Love the bright fuchsia lipstick and the loosely side-swept bun that Natalie Portman wore to the Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City. This would be a great look for a holiday party. From InStyle.
I am loving this Tommy Hilfiger holiday commercial. Not only does it feature one of my favorite Vampire Weekend songs, but I also love the cute clothes and the entire concept of the video. Reminds me of my own wacky family. Every time this comes on TV I get so excited for the holidays!

Speaking of The Romantics, some of the stars recently posed for J.Crew. Including Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel, and dreamy Adam Brody. I wish Dianna Agron (aka Quinn from Glee) was in the shoot too - she's so adorable! Check out more of the photo shoot at J.Crew.
