Make: DIY Gift Tags
Though I might be in the minority, I find the annual task of purchasing holiday cards to be one of the most enjoyable parts of the season. I could spend hours in the local Papyrus piling boxes upon boxes of cards onto the checkout counter. Needless to say, I’m left with an awkward amount of leftovers each season. The solution? Trim your favorite designs into gift tags! If you’re like me you’re constantly running low, and finding (cute) gift tags don’t come cheap – so start snippin’!

Snack: Peppermint Bark Popcorn 
In need of a healthy(ier) snack to dole out during the holidays? Look no further. Cookie and Kate has whipped up a batch of treats that are a little lighter than your average christmas cookie. Salty, sweet and everything in between, this snack will quench your craving for chocolate without giving you a stomachache.

Wear:
I love a good party dress as much as anyone, but why not try spicing up a pair of pants for your weekend shindig? These satin haram-esque trousers will have heads turning, especially when paired with art deco accessories and a sultry smokey eye. Lest we not forget to channel Miu Miu with a sparkly shoe – because nothing gets you going like a little glitter. Click the collage above for info on picking up these gorgeous pieces.

Watch: The Family Stone
There’s a tradition in my house when it comes to festive films. While we all have an appreciation for classics like It’s a Wonderful Life, when the snow starts falling I prefer a more contemporary take on the holidays. If you have yet to see The Family Stone, all I can say is: you’re in for a treat. Starring Diane Keaton, Luke Wilson, Rachel McAdams and SJP herself, Family Stone will make you laugh, cry, and most of all – it will make you thankful for what you’ve got.

Make: Grilled Asparagus Tartines with Fresh Ricotta, Pesto & Scallions
Whether or not your an avid host, once the snow starts falling and the lights start glittering it’s tempting to throw your own soiree. The first and most obvious question – what to serve? All I have to say is thank god for these magical asparagus tartines. So fresh. So creamy. And most importantly, so easy to assemble. So light a fire, put on some music and bring out a tray of these suckers. Your guests will hardly know what hit ‘um.

Paint: Holiday Nail Art
Since it’s the season of giving and all, OTY has decided to get in on the action with our first ever(!) beauty giveaway. It’s simple – send your most festive nail art creations to our Instagram account, @OTYgrams, with the hastag #OTYnailed it. Once you’ve submitted your photo, you will be entered to win our fabulous prize: a Sephora by OPI, Tinsel Town Collector’s Set. Check our collection to see how OTY’s very own Experts are stacking up to the challenge.

Wear:
I’ll be frank – finding a holiday frock when you’ve got an impending deadline can be less than fun. The annual office party, meeting his or her parents, entertaining your crazy (god love them) family – the events this month are endless. So before you’re caught without something fabulous in your closet, why not start shopping? I love love love thisilk green number with a pair of black leather ankle boots. It’s perfect for mingling with your coworkers, and throw on a red lip and some sparkly shoes and BAM – you’re ready for the mistletoe . Plus, what screams “cheer” louder than Kate Spade? Her fragrance, Twirl, is equally as bubbly as the champagne you will (hopefully) be sipping. Click on the collage above for more details.

Watch: Playing for Keeps
When I head to the theater this holiday season, I’m looking for award-winning performances, mind-blowing special effects…and a little eye candy. While I can’t see Gerard Butler’s newest flick, Playing for Keeps, sweeping the Oscars, I will admit to enjoying watching this undeniable hunk kick around a soccer ball. What’s wrong with a little light-hearted fun at the movies, anyway? They can’t all be Lincoln – and hey, we wouldn’t want them to be.

This month is an exciting time to be in Kuala Lumpur and I’m so happy to be home this year for the holidays. On Dec 8, I’ll be heading to Heineken Thirst 2012 held at Sepang International Circuit (yes, that’s where Formula 1 races are held too!) to witness headlining acts Avicii and Above & Beyond. Since it’s also my first tropical Christmas in three years, I’ll be taking in all the Christmas decoration this city has to offer. For the festivities as well as my birthday, I’ll be shopping at Zalora.com for their amazing holiday sales, so I can bring on the bling with various sequined dresses. Finally, apart from the usual Christmas-themed food, I’ll be tucking into my favorite meal of all time: soft shell crab pasta cooked with butter and a hint of curry. Nothing like a yummy fusion meal to kick-start the holidays! For more, keep up with my “When Fashion and Food Collide” collection on OTY.

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.
