Some of my favorite gifts are those that are homemade. I enjoy not only receiving them, but also making them. Below is a BEAUTIFUL scarf I made for a dear friend and mentor.
Below is a close up of the Sea Dreams Scarf Project Kit. As you can see, the scarf is reversible. The fabric is a soft and lightweight voile. This scarf will make the perfect addition to your wardrobe all year long!
If you have an interest in sewing, I suggest you check out Anna Maria Horner's blog at annamariahorner.blogspot.com. tips and inspiration. You can also shop her store at store.annamariahorner.com.

Well I must say I LOVE the new Valet by Cisco!
The Valet Wireless Router was the easiest router I have ever set up. Just insert the Easy Setup Key and in about 5 minutes or less you’re connected. That’s it!! When you open the box it’s like opening a jewelry box with a gem inside. The box inside the sleeve is well constructed and feels solid.
We use cable internet and after the upgrade to the Valet there is a BIG improvement in the connection, our IP phones are no longer choppy, and websites load significantly faster.
Best of all, it works for both Mac and Windows and with any manufacturer's wireless client adapters! The case of the Cisco Valet is essentially the same form factor as used on the new Linksys "E" series of wireless routers. The Cisco Valet is encased in a soft-finish eggshell white case with a light blue accent, where the Linksys routers come in a shiny black case.
Cisco Valet wireless routers (www.thevalet.com). It’s the super-simple fool-proof way to set up wireless in the home in 3 easy steps and the perfect companion gift to all the hot consumer electronics gifts this season that require Wi-Fi. Here’s what Cisco is offering:
The Valet wireless router offers:
- Easy setup with a USB key so it works quick!
- Visitors can access the Wi-Fi connection from their laptop, smartphone, or other device without accessing the private home network. Protection for those that didn’t know they even needed protection!
- Parental controls that allow parents to manage every device that kids use to connect. As a Stylish Momma, we realize how important safety first can be!
Valet is the perfect companion gift to consumer electronics gifts and also the best way to make sure your tech-challenged friends have a wireless connection when you visit during the holidays! So no more visits to the coffee shop for your wireless connection (unless it’s actually for coffee)! Here is how you can enter for a chance to win a Cisco Valet:

Nicole by OPI has some fabulous colors out this holiday season! Not sure which colors to buy? We are currently obsessing over Stuck in the Chimney and Spark my Mistletoe. Stuck in the Chimney is a deep red color and Spark my Mistletoe is a red glitter with flecks of other colors mixed in. We must say that the glitter polishes are far better than any others we have used. Instead of getting a few pieces of glitter on your nails, the Nicole glitter covers the entire nail with a lot of SPARKLE!
While your out picking up these colors, why not grab Kiss me at Midnight and Bring on the Tinsel? Kiss me at Midnight is a dark plum color, and Bring on the Tinsel is a glitter polish with flecks of silver, red and turquoise. Kiss me at Midnight and Bring on the Tinsel will look great with any outfit on New Years Eve!

Have you ever wondered how you could make your eyes look like Katy Perry's Perry's? If so, here's how you can do it at home:
NYC Celebrity Makeup Artist and Brow Guru RAMY breaks it down in 5 easy steps:
- Use a slant tweezer, the slanted angle tip offers a wider grip than a pointy tweezer
- Apply eye liner and mascara to lashes before applying individual lashes
- Adding 2 to 3 individual lashes to your outer eye will make your eyes appear larger, more almond shaped and will add instant glamour to any look
- Pick up each lash by gripping it by the end of the lash (not the "root"). Then dip the root of the lash into the glue
- Finally apply lash to desired area of lash line, getting the root as close to the base of your lashes
A ‘Best of Beauty’ winner chosen by Allure editors for the past 10 consecutive years, top makeup artists always recommend the original, award-winning Slant Tweezer for expert brow shaping. The perfectly aligned, hand-filed tips are slanted to grab every hair, every time with the smoothest, true precision.
Tweezerman Slant Tweezers are available at Sephora and Sephora.com for $25, as well as other fine beauty stores.
