Guest Post || TEEN GIRL GIFTS

11.30.2013


Hello inner-tube lovelies!  I'm Virginia, Jennifer's daughter.  I hope you all had a great Black Friday and sufficiently avoided getting trampled (I stayed at home... didn't want to risk it).  I find the whole concept of Black Friday very interesting... Americans spend Thanksgiving with their families, discussing what they are grateful to have and how blessed they are, only to go out the next day and run people over to buy new things.  It's all very materialistic, and I don't quite understand the mentality, although I do love a good bargain... just not enough to maim a fellow shopper. 



My mother asked me to create a gift guide for teen girls, because apparently it's hard to shop for us. Oops.  Here it is -- hope it's helpful and such.  Happy Holidays, and may you drink plenty of cocoa this season.

I'm far from being a teen, but it like your style! I'm after the vest and boots. So basically I can shop for myself and know that any of my four nieces would be covered.
Great post, thank you taking the time to help us out!!!

Katherine said...

Great gift idea's and WOW, terrific analysis of the craziness that has become black Friday. Very well put.

Beth Connolly said...

This was such a fun post. My daughter Kate has done several posts and inspiration boards for me on Chinoiserie Chic and everyone has enjoyed seeing how similar our tastes are. You have great style just like your Mom. I too love Kate Spade, J.Crew, pink, polk dots, and animal motifs, so I think your picks would be popular with girls of all ages. I wanted to say too that you write beautifully! Maybe this could turn into a monthly guest post on The Pink Pagoda.

Virginia I Love these!! You have wonderful taste. And I agree with you about black Friday....I think it just shows how our values as a society are very confused. So sad.

stephanie at Stephanie Kraus Designs said...

Virginia great picks especially the boots and vests. Now what is that jambox thingy? I looked it up on the target website but does it hook up to you ipod or phone? so technically challenged.

Kim said...

Lovely inspiration Virginia ... and like several others have said, this "old" girl could be happy with some of those pretty items!! xo

Vel Criste said...

Fabulous suggestions Virginia! I want the wristlet and boots for myself too!

Nancy {at} powellbrower at home said...

Tiffany Jones Interiors said...

Virginia - your gifts are spot on! In fact, i have seen a few of these on my girls' chirstmas lists already. However - my favorite thing is your brilliant observation about Black Friday. You are truly wise beyond your years. Merry, merry!

Galliani : Matri will return to Milan

Agen Bola terpercaya Cityholidaybet.com reported - AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has dismissed speculation linking Alessandro Matri with a permanent switch to Fiorentina after his superb debut on Sunday.
Despite finding the net just once in 15 Serie A matches for AC Milan, Matri, who recently joined Fiorentina on a loan deal, scored a double against Catania for the Florence-based club.
However, Galliani is adamant that the player will return to San Siro next season and is not looking for a permanent move to the Viola.
"Everyone knew that he would go there and score," as reported by City Holiday.
"He's a great finisher and he has always scored goals, sometimes it's just a matter of form.
“He is still a Milan player, he’s only there on a short-term loan."
Matri joined the Rossoneri last summer after falling down the pecking at Juventus in 2012-13, with the added arrivals of Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez ensuring he would play even more infrequently.

Germany proved doubters wrong in World Cup – Ozil





Agen Bola Terpercaya Cityholidaybet Reported - Germany star Mesut Ozil believes that he and his team-mates went a long way to silencing their critics when they won the World Cup earlier this summer.
Joachim Low's side had made a habit of falling short in major tournaments in recent years, reaching the last four of the competition in 2006 and 2010 and Euro 2012, as well as the Euro 2008 final.
However, they bucked the trend in Brazil, beating the hosts in the semi-finals before seeing off Argentina to life the trophy at the Maracana, despite some skeptical voices in the German media.
"Lots of people in the media had their say before the tournament and gave many opinions, some positive and some negative, about the team and individual players," he told Arsenal's official website.
"Things like us not being a team or not being mature enough, that some players wouldn't’t battle enough or weren't’t able to do certain things. We proved to everyone what strong character we have as a team."

Agen Bola Terpercaya indo11.com melaporkan, Kekalahan di tangan tim papan bawah, Hamburg, menambah panjang tren buruk Borussia Dortmund di liga musim ini. Performa buruk Dortmund merupakan tanggung jawab Juergen Klopp.

"Hari ini adalah titik rendah dan di waktu yang sama adalah titik mula musim ini bagi kami. Saya menerima tanggung jawab ini," ujar Klopp.

"Saya bertanggung jawab untuk memilih tim dan untuk sikap mereka. Kami sekarang mempunyai tujuh poin dan jelas jauh dari papan atas."

Serena Terancam Gagal ke Singapura

http://www.football-images.net/2014-10-06/8061612eae58ff73880b6bd97311cf2c.jpg
Agen Bola Terpercaya indo11.com melaporkan, Serena Williams kemungkinan bisa melewatkan final WTA akhir bulan ini di Singapura, jika kondisi fisiknya tidak mengalami perubahan dalam dua pekan ke depan.

Hampir dua pekan ini kondisi Serena nampaknya sedikit menurun. Sejak mundur dari turnamen Wuhan Terbuka 2014, petenis terbaik Amerika Serikat ini belum juga berhasil mengembalikan kondisi fisiknya.

Hal yang tak diinginkan kembali terjadi saat Serena menjalani laga perempat final di China Terbuka melawan Samantha Stosur. Pasalnya, unggulan pertama tersebut terpaksa meninggalkan turnamen ini lebih cepat akibat mengalami cedera lutut.

Melihat kondisi kesehatan Serena yang rentan mengalami cedera membuat Serena belum bisa mengeluarkan komentar tentang peluangnya tampil di Singapura pada 27 Oktober mendatang.

"Saya belum tahu. Saya akan melakukan scan secepatnya. Ini dilakukan agar saya mengetahui akar permasalahannya. Jika pada akhirnya saya merasa tidak mengalami perubahan, maka saya tidak akan berpikir untuk bermain di Singapura," kata Serena.
