If I were a guy, this would be hands-down my favorite place to shop. Ok, who am I kidding. I am not a guy and this is still one of my favorite places to shop. Located in Soho, Odin has everything for the style conscious man who wants to look cool and trendy without looking “too cool and trendy”. I love the scarves, boyfriend sweaters and quirky ceramic animal shot glasses, but my most guilty pleasure here is from their own Eau de Parfume collection. You all would be lying if you tried to tell me that you’ve never dabbed on your boyfriend’s cologne at some point in time, and when asked what that great smell was, pretended you had no idea what they were talking about. ”Must be my new shampoo?” Odin EDP 04 gets you that same reaction, except now you don’t have to steal your boyfriend’s cologne (or lie)! Words cannot describe how wonderful it smells. It is simply one of those things you must experience for yourself. At $110 a bottle, you better believe you will smell like a million bucks. Despite the hefty price tags throughout the store, it is almost impossible to leave Odin empty-handed. There truly is something for everyone and every budget, and the good looking sales people can attest to that.

If you don’t mind the tourists, Rockefeller center is one of the best places to visit during this time of year. Of course the skating rink and 70 foot Norway Spruce draw the majority of the crowds, but what you should really be keeping an eye out for are the dancing Salvation Army change collectors. Seemingly timid older gentleman, wearing bellhop suits and dancing to the Cha Cha slide. All ready to flirt with the camera in exchange for a paper donation (coins are so 2010) while simultaneously ringing their bells to the beat of the music.
Happy Holidays ladies.
