New York City during the holidays is my absolute favorite. There’s something about walking down fifth avenue in December that is just so cliche but also equally magical. This month, I will definitely be doing the must-see’s, like the NYC Ballet’s Nutcracker and the holiday shops at Columbus Circle. On top of that I’ll be hitting up my favorite LES resto and staying in to watch a few indie flicks during the cold city nights. Read on for more and don’t forget to check out my local’s guide to NYC on Oh That’s You.

kmullinsSHOP: The shops at Columbus Circle are great for finding unique gifts.
kmullinsWEAR: I’m obsessed with this emerald bracelet that I ordered from JewelMint. It’s the perfect statement piece for the holidays.
kmullinsEAT: Sauce in the LES is a delicious Italian restaurant for holiday dinners.
kmullinsPARTAKE: The NYC Ballet’s Nutcracker is a must-see in December. You can score $30 tickets if you order early enough…
kmullinsINSPIRED: Just watched the indie movie Electrick Children the other day. A refreshing, youthful storyline for a cold night in!

So now that the election is over (whew), I’m back with all of the in’s and out’s of living in the nation’s capital. Whether it’s the latest fashion trend or a hole-in-the-wall restaurant I’m bringing to light, best believe I’ll find it. Continue on to see what I’m discovering in our last month of 2012, and if that excites you (or you just want to catch more of my quirky style thoughts) check out my ever-growing collection of the fast-paced D.C. in my collection on Oh That’s You.

Style_Jay93Inspiration? Rihanna this month has been everywhere, and we are LOVING her new album.
Style_Jay93Wear? Time to get out the party holiday outfits people. It’s time to party right, the D.C. way.
Style_Jay93Taste? Try the best pizza in the city. It’ll have you asking when’s the next time you come visit the capital? :)
Style_Jay93Shop? There’s an amazing place called “It’s Vintage Darling” founded right here in D.C. that has amazing vintage finds at a fraction of what you’d pay at a retail store.

December has arrived! This month I’m focusing on my hometown, Long Beach, California and all of the wonders it has to offer. Located in Los Angeles County, Long Beach has grown over the years into a town full of adorable boutiques, seriously delicious restaurants and local markets filled with fresh produce. During December the town lights up from store front holiday displays to lit up christmas trees floating in the Alamitos Bay. All more the reason why I am happy to be home for the holidays this year!

CalliperezSHOP: Francesca’s in Long Beach is one of my favorite boutiques in the area. Albeit a tiny shop, there are a plethora of jewelry, accessories and must have clothes packed in there. It is my go-to when I am looking to give any look that extra something.
CalliperezPARTAKE: The farmer’s market in Long Beach at Marine Stadium is every Sunday. I can walk there from my house, so I love to get some exercise and some fresh produce and treats each week’s end. It is always great to support local vendors.
CalliperezINSPIRED: Maybe it was my winter white nails this past week, but I have been playing the Beatles White album a lot lately, and will most likely carry the trend through all of December.
CalliperezThe White Album is definitely one of my all time favorite albums and deserves another listen or two this holiday month.
CalliperezWEAR: I put together this outfit for a holiday party. I love this idea of the modern LBD with killer accessories like a turban and burnt mustard colored shoes and jewels. Of course, a soft smoky eye and red nails to make the outfit POP.
CalliperezTASTE: Le Creperie is hands down my favorite restaurant in Long Beach. From their balsamic dressed salads to their garlic fries and french onion soup (with cheese overflowing the rim), to their savory crepes (French Riveria is my favorite)
Calliperezto their dessert crepes (nutella, berries, cream, oh my) and finally their decadent cappuccinos, Le Creperie never misses a beat.
