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.
