For me, there are few things better than twinkling lights & the comforting glow they cast. I guess this would ring even truer for those who celebrate Christmas in the bleak mid-winter of the Northern Hemisphere.

I'm not quite sure what to think of these Christmas decorations I came across the other day. On the one hand, I think they're pretty cool, funny & fun. On the other, I don't know if I like the implied destruction these grenade Christmas decorations issue, especially at a time when peace & love is supposed to abound! What do you think?

This new dress by Sass & Bide is gorgeous & perfect to cover the holiday season's numerous parties. This image unfortunately doesn't do it justice - it looks 100% better in real life!

I've been reading about different food authors today & just came upon cook Nigella Lawson speaking about how she celebrates Christmas. I like how, despite being Jewish, she still relishes & enjoys the trappings of the season.

Chef extraordinaire Philipa Sibley is know as the 'queen of desserts' in Australia (although she's equally as impressive at creating savoury dishes). This November, she's releasing her first solo cookbook entitled PS Desserts. Coincidentally, the book is published by the same publishing house that publishes my cookbooks. Can't wait for this one!

How good are these new offerings from fashion brand Kate Spade New York? One is a scarf with a map of Manhattan on it. The other, a purse to celebrate Fashion's Night Out in NYC. Wish these guys shipped to Australia!

This new travel book by Plum Imprints is not yet released in hardback form, but I flicked through an e-version of it today & boy was I impressed! Can't wait to snap up a copy when it hits the shelves Nov 1st. It's written by Australian journalist Janelle McCulloch, who incidentally took the amazing photos scattered throughout the book.
