Links Are Awesome | 12.10.09

Greetings ladies and gents! It’s been a pretty good week despite the fact the temperature has been in the teens the last two days with wind chills below zero! Aside from that I am almost finished with shopping for presents but struggling to find those last few perfect things — my family is SO HARD to buy for! Oh, not to mention, I’ve been working very hard to not buy things for myself! Anyway, here’s what’s got my attention this week.

Grabby:

• Sixteen ways to beat designer’s block.

• Facebook’s new privacy changes, and what you need to know.

Pantone has declared PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise the color of 2010. I can get on board with that, it’s a versatile color.

KC Free Press is Kansas City’s newest online spot for local news.

• Also local to KC, Sonic Spectrum’s Best of 2009 music run down. I totally agree with Bat for Lashes.

• This always makes me happy. Scene from Party Girl, starring Parker Posey. I want my awesome moment on the dance floor!

The Andrews Sisters are the bees knees.

The Andrews Sisters are the bees knees when it comes to Christmas music.

• Sonja Rykiel lingerie at H&M. That vintage looking peachy color is gorgeous. And I have to say, as a budget-minded lady, H&M’s lingerie is not all that bad. Wish I was traveling sooner so I’d have a chance to see this collection in person!

• Scheduling a photo shoot with Vixen Pinup Photography. Yay!

• Holiday parties!

• Getting to volunteer with my co-workers at the Salvation Army’s Christmas Store.

• My sister finishing another semester of grad school. I’m so proud of her!

Stabby

• The aforementioned low temperatures. Too cold, even for me.

• Being sick. My sinuses and throat are killing me!

• Bad Christmas music. If it’s not a member of the Rat Pack, Bing, or the Andrews Sisters, then I’m not interested. (*Editor’s note: Courtney pointed out I should have also included Elvis, and I forgot how much I love my parents’ “Motown Christmas” on vinyl, so I stand corrected!)

That’s it for this week’s links, but I’ve got some great things coming up in the next week, so stay tuned!
