A day in the life of Astro babe Tali Edut— one-half of the AstroTwins team? Well, it might include pressing ‘send’ on an upcoming month of horoscopes for Refinery29 or Elle, it probably includes doing something with the just-published 300-page, all-inclusive guide to 2015 and it could involve follow-up for the on-air readings they did for The Real Housewives of New Jersey (yeah, really). Of course, it might entail a little shopping too …

Listen Up! Wings

After The Beatles, but well before Paul McCartney became an official “Sir”, Macca had a little outfit called Wings (a name apparently inspired by his designer daughter Stella’s birth).

The band—featuring a core lineup of Paul, his wife Linda and guitarist Denny Laine—generated a slew of ’70s hits like “Jet“, “Silly Love Songs” and “Live & Let Die” (covered later by Axl Rose and crew), but one of our favorite Wings numbers is the timely tune “Wonderful Christmas Time”.

Remember when people used to say that print was dead? These days it seems that analog, words-on-page devices are more alive than ever, and Gather Journal is a terrifically designed and wonderfully written example. With a focus on food and the culture of those who grow, make, and (sure) eat it, it’s a magazine that works like a book and feels like a slice of the very best life. We talked to Brooklyn-based editor and cofounder Fiorella Valdesolo about her holiday hit list.

Laura Mercier

It’s a rare couple who works together blissfully, but Steve and Jamie Moore make it look like a breeze. Co-owners of Sinclair & Moore, a Seattle-based wedding design and planning company (Steve’s the designer; Jamie’s the planner), the pair take personal delight in the joy they see at every wedding they’re a part of. The ridiculously romantic partners—married since 2011 and expecting their first baby any second now—love the season of giving, and can predict each other’s wish lists with newlywed precision.

Our Women’s Buying Team on House of DVF and the winning design.

The Diane von Furstenberg reality show, House of DVFin which a hopeful group of young women vie to become the brand’s global ambassadorhas taken us up, down and sideways. From new friendships and sad goodbyes to surprise twists and a $1,o00 dress that went for a swim, one thing remains constant: the gracious spirit and wisdom of Furstenberg herself. It’s no wonder the prize position is such a coveted one.

Did you see us on last night’s episode? Part of our women’s buying team was on set representing Nordstrom and had the opportunity to provide feedback to the would-be ambassadors about their designs and fashion—not to mention help select a winning dress to be sold exclusively at Nordstrom, in stores and online beginning this March.

Olivia Kim and Rafael de Cárdenas

Sex, drones, and rock & roll: That’s one definition of Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB), the international art festival which lights up South Beach and farther-flung Miami neighborhoods like Wynwood annually, with art, artists, art dealers, and art collectors all reveling in early December. It’s a true world party; everyone is speaking a different language. This year during ABMB, Nordstrom director of creative projects Olivia Kim hosted a VIP moonlit dinner at The Standard Spa with her dear friend Rafael de Cárdenas to celebrate Nordstrom’s current Gift & Go Pop-In@Nordstrom–Rafael being the architect and designer who helped create the physical Pop-In spaces with Olivia in select Nordstrom stores. The vibe of the evening was chill.

“Art Basel can be hectic,” says Olivia. “There’s so much going on every night. So, the intention was to host a casual dinner on the waterfront that was really about celebrating Pop-In@Nordstrom and the awesome gifts we were selling in the shops, and sharing that with our friends who were in town in a fun and cute way.”

Snapshots from the dinner are included after the jump (note the friendly video drone which hovered overhead, filmed the evening’s festivities, and can be purchased as part of the Gift & Go collection).
