Six Girls-a-lazing

On the sixth day of Christmas, the Spinster gave to me....six girls a lazing, fiiiiive chicken wings, four famous nerds, three french men, two chubby pugs, and a puppy playing with feet!

This is probably one of the most spinster-appropriate gifs in this whole series. It includes sofas, beds, sweatshirts, sweatpants, bathrobes, and loungewear in general. Then, of course, you have the fact that it's all about lounging and watching TV. Yo ho! It's a spinster's life for me.

Now, as far as receiving six girls-a-lazing as a Christmas gift, again I'd wager you'd rather have the geese. At least then you could use the eggs. With lazy girls, I'm afraid they'll just eat your food and fill your Netflix queue with TLC shows. Then, of course, there's that whole thing about receiving a human being as a gift....not quite so ethical. So, you'll just have to settle for the gif and not a gift, once again.

Gird your loins for tomorrow. It's one of my favorite gifs I've made yet! It may not be funny, but it is fun to watch.

Five Chicken Wings

On the fifth day of Christmas, the spinster gave to me....fiiiiive chicken wings, four famous nerds, three french men, two chubby pugs, and a puppy playing with feet.

By my estimation, this is the best gift yet...but not necessarily the best gif yet. You don't have to figure out where you'll house it or how you're going to feed it. In fact, it feeds you. I gotta tell you, though, as of my writing this post, I think I could probably eat more than five chicken wings. You might, then, have to resort to eating one of the puppies I gave you earlier. They are deliciously cute.

As usual, stay tuned tomorrow for what's next in the Christmas gif bonanza!

Four Famous Nerds

On the fourth day of Christmas, the Spinster Gave to me...four famous nerds, three french men, two chubby pugs, and a puppy playing with feet.

The original version of the fourth day of Christmas is "four Colly birds," or "four calling birds," so today I thought I'd try to fit that verse as much as possible. The first thing that came to mind? Four famous nerds. Now, in case you aren't familiar with each of these four famous nerds, I'll give you a rundown below.

On the far left, we have Michael Cera, the lovably nerdy actor who first came to fame on Arrested Development. He was most certainly a college crush of mine. His nerdiness is endearing.

Next to Mr. Cera, we have one Mr. Mark Zuckerberg. I don't think I need to tell you who he is, but just in case you're reading this from a casket that was buried before 2004, he founded Facebook.

The other white guy in the background here is Bill Gates. Again, you should probably know who this guy is, but let's hedge our bets. He founded Microsoft. Before Zuckerberg was born, he was leveraging his nerd-dom to make bank.

Last but certainly not least, we have on of my favorite nerds ever, none other than Steve Urkel of Family Matters. He's a champ. Jaleel White smashed that role like it was his job...because it was his job. Now that I'm thinking about it, I am considering entering every party I attend by just asking really loudly, "you got any cheese?"

Stay tuned tomorrow for the fifth day of Christmas. Here's a hint: It's not going to be golden rings!

Three French Men

On the third day of Christmas, the Spinster gave to me....Three french men, two chubby pugs, and a puppy playing with feet!

I cannot tell a lie. For today's Christmas Gif, I had to do a little research. There weren't too many people I was 100% sure were french. Of course, the first person who came to mind was Napoleon Bonaparte, pictured at the top. I love that he was both Emperor of the French and King of Italy. I mean...you can't get much better than that. The man had swagger. That's why he got the glitter beret.

On the left we have Serge Gainsbourg which, as a fashion designer, I'm really surprised I didn't think of sooner. The Gainsbourgs are always muses for some designer or other. Rarely pictured without his cigarette, I think it's fair to say he's an iconic frenchman.

Lastly we have Gerard Depardieu, a french Actor. You probably remember him from his role in Green Card with Andie MacDowell. They say people's noses never stop growing, and he is living proof.

So, stay tuned tomorrow for your next Christmas Gif!

Two Chubby Pugs

On the second day of Christmas, the Spinster gave to me...Two Chubby Pugs and a puppy playing with feet.

I promise this whole series won't be about puppies, but "two chubby pugs" just replaced "two turtle doves" so well, I couldn't help myself. Look at those chubby little babies! They're so cute.

December has really crept up on me. Next week is the week of Christmas. So, if you haven't finished you'r Christmas shopping, you might want to get on that.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the third day of Christmas! What will it be!?

A Puppy Playing with Feet

Today marks the beginning of some holiday fun: The 12 Gifs of Christmas! Today I decided to actually bring you two because I'm obsessed with my puppy, so you know...bear with me. So, I'll make it official:

On the first day of Christmas, the Spinster gave to me a puppy playing with feet.

That's way better than a partridge in a pear tree, right? At least, it's a lot more fun. It's definitely at least 100 times cuter.


For good measure I've added this second gif, which is also precious.

Stay tuned for the next twelve days to see what other gifs I plan to give you!

Gift Guide: Comfy Cozy



Well, my dear spinsters, the day has come. This is the last of the Gift Guides, and whether you're excited about it or not, Christmas is coming. The goose is getting fat. (The goose, in this situation, is me). It's Saturday, and I thought it was only fitting that the last gift guide be loungewear. Today's guide has an assortment of robes, pajamas, and sundry comfy items  - from the absolutely glorious to the completely absurd. 

I hope you enjoy this gift guide, and Please feel free to buy it all for me (except #s 5 and 8). Now, let's link it up!

1. Natori Sherpa Micro Velour Robe: $79.99, 6pm
          Natori Robes are so delicious. Their bread and butter is these amazing printed satin robes, but they're super pricey, and I daresay not great to put on straight out of the shower. This, however, looks like heaven. It's soft on the outside an on the inside, and it's under $100. It's a deal.

          I'm currently trying very hard not to purchase this robe before Christmas. It's basically exactly what I want to throw on at 5 in the morning when I am taking Miranda out for her first walk of the day. It's like my long puffy coat, but it doesn't have that super long sipper that always gets stuck about three inches after I start zipping up my coat. Bonus: it's like wearing the comforter off of your bed. Who could ask for anything more?

          Firstly, I'd just like to say how much I love the name "cuddle puff." If I had a fat cat, I might need to name it cuddle puff. Secondly, Carter's makes something very similar to this for children, and I always want one. Voila! Here it is! It's not quite as puffy as the kids' one, but it'll do in a pinch. 

          To get the full feeling of how ridiculous this is, you need to watch the Forever Lazy Commercial. My favorite part is around minute 1 when they show people actually wearing these outside. Yep. I dare you.

5. Elf Suit Pajamas: $17.99, Target
          Please do not, under any circumstances, purchase this item for me. However, if you're totally fit, and you are really into being a little Christmas Elf, then knock yourself out.

          This is what I imagine myself wearing as I descend a set of curved stairs to greet my house guests when I become a recluse. This will all be taking place in the Biltmore Estate, which I will obviously own and inhabit by then. Every other day, though, I'll wear a semi-sheer robe over a fabulous opaque night dress. The sheer robe will have bits of metallic lace and will be trimmed with ostrich feathers at its bell sleeve. It will be beautiful.

7. Cozy Pod: $79.99, Pajamagram
          This is insanity. If you want to look like one of those hamsters from the Kia commercials while you eat pizza and watch netflix, this is the outfit for you. 

          I went to Carolina, so that's why I made this robe so tiny. The truth, though, is that the Carolina robe is not as cute as the Clemson one. Fans Edge, though, has all sorts of College and professional sports team gear, which is, of course, incredibly giftable. 

          This is potentially the most normal thing on this list. I had to make sure you knew I wasn't entirely crazy.

10. Aerie Cozy Robe Gift: $44.96, Aerie
          Personally, my hind quarters are a bit too large for short robes, but I know many a girl who prefers a shorter robe. So, this is the answer to #1 on the list, and it's also much more affordable! I believe it also comes nicely folded with a cute little bow. Excellent.

Now, I hope you all have a good idea of what you'll be wearing during your next Netflix marathon. Don't forget that tomorrow the brand new 12 Gifs of Christmas series begins!
