I can't believe that Christmas is merely days away. I know that most people are in holiday preparation mode and I need to get on it asap. We are foodies and enjoy a feast during this season which usually includes ham, prime rib, duck, variety of sides and desserts.

Every now and then Chillafish will launch a special limited FAD-edition, featuring illustrations of a Fabulous Artist that we think deserves some special attention.  They can be young and unknown, from street artists to painters.  All we look for is a positive message in their work in a fabulously funky way.

However, my feet are not always happy due to pinched toes, no support, achy heels and even blisters. Ja-Vie has come to the rescue with their stylish yet comfortable flats for everyday wear.

I love shopping at Best Buy for the latest in cameras and camcorders to capture all the special memories with the kids. There is definitely a difference in taking a quick snapshot of my kids and texting to my mother who is across the country and emailing a photo from my regular camera. Nowadays, there are amazing cameras that have built-in Wi-Fi so you can share amazing, quality photos with ease.
