Winter Issue still rocks!

Speaking of coming to life…Marc Jacobs take me away! I looove those bags in Pulse Products. And the fact that at the top corner of each page the tag wraps around, rad. I love the shoes on top of each other, genius. No one does that. Gotta love that Tracey Elizabeth, her photography never disappoints. As in her…

Fashion spread this month. The blue background and bubbles used really create an understated festive feeling with just the right amount o’ bling to make it cool and sexy. Ms. Laura Varrone is quite crafty with her design techniques—you’d think those gold bubbles were floating on the set when we shot it. This spread was just so different from anything we have done. The angles and positions and how a couple of the pages the model’s heads were not showing are just awesome. It’s all about the clothes—Victor Talbots, Diane Von Furstenberg, Badgley Mischka oh my! —but then, it’s all about the feeling they give you, too. And on the last page, for those of you that weren’t here to witness that day, let me tell you a little something about our little Twiggy (she so totally looked like her with her hair and eyes and frail but strong structure. If you look very closely to the top of this page where her eyes are cut off, you can see a little bit of what looks to be brown feathers? Yeah because they were. The most exquisite false eyelashes I have ever seen. I almost swooned liked Scarlet O’Hara. Mathew (our amaaaazing makeup artist, my new fave) and I looked at each other and just went “oooooo.” Oh Melissa I knew we were separated at birth.

More metallic in the holiday gift guide. I love that stack of presents. I really hope I get a present wrapped like that under my tree this year from Santa. The gift guide itself is awesome. There is something for everyone: Tequila, video games, bikes, sweaters, lingerie, cameras. Oh the Go Pro Camera? I got one for my hubby last Christmas for when he is surfing or motorcrossing. So cool, he loves it. I definitely recommend it. It’s simple to use, simple enough for Eric and he can’t even send an email.

So hurry up and check it out to find out where all the good gets are and then get to the getting. But hold onto your Pulse because, there’s plenty more in this double issue for next month.
