Royal side-eye. While it’s sad that our culture can’t even bring itself to be polite to the future sovereign leader of another country, I think Kate handled the moment remarkably well. Owned it, actually.

This Buzzfeed series. I get all the feelings from it. All of them.

(On a related note)…J.K. Rowling’s early Christmas present to the world. Are you on Pottermore? I know I’m about ten years late to this show, but oh my wordsmith it’s a phenomenal site.

Ridiculously bright, shiny, sparkly wrapping paper. Because I’m actually seven years old.

This children’s book about a self(ie)-centered elf who has to save Christmas. My super-talented cousin did the narration and music for it, which makes it especially special (is that redundant?), but even if he hadn’t, it’d still be a cute story.

My furbabies. They are just so damn cute. I can’t even think of clever captions for some of the photos I take of them because I’m just overwhelmed by all the cuteness. The sparkly lights help.
