This month feels like it is speeding away from me! Hope you’re having a nice one; if you’re still picking up bits and bobs for Christmas, we did an under-$25 piece this week!

At Vanity Fair: The “New HFPA” Is Ready to Relaunch the Golden Globes. Hollywood Is Skeptical. So am I!

I cannot imagine ANYONE will choose to attend the Globes and it’s WILD to me that the HFPA is even trying it this year.
