Holiday Madness: Gettin' Sh*t Done!
Posted on 20 December 2015
“I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed but can you ever just be whelmed?”
- Bianca Stratford, Ten Things I Hate About You
Well, we're pretty freaking overwhelmed here at WonderLust but isn't everyone during the holiday season? So I'll keep this short and sweet since you've probably got things to do...
These past few months have been a whirlwind here in NYC. We celebrated WonderLust’s 1 year anniversary (Happy Birthday, us!) followed by a fulfilling Thanksgiving feast with friends and family. Then it was 4 days of Black Friday where our exclusive sales made for our busiest weekend ever! In fact, we were so grateful for your support that we decided to say thank you this December with a free set of holiday pasties for every purchase over $20 (while supplies last). They were supper cute and we've just about given them all away! But don't worry if you missed out: WonderLust has many more surprises and savings in store for you all in 2016.

Next, it was on to my own birthday celebration (I'm old… don't ask) and then a lovely early Christmas present in the form of an interview with my fave celeb crush: Dita Von Teese! It was amazing meeting and talking with the Queen of Burlesque and I can't wait to share our interview together after the New Year!
After that, we were ecstatic to book our holiday Euro trip, which we’re leaving for this week (Must. Contain. Excitement). And of course this tour will include copious amounts of lingerie shopping. Since I'll have a good week in Paris this is where I plan on indulging in most of my lingerie fantasies and I've already put together a lingerie itinerary for my first few days. You can read about it here and let me know what you think I'm missing!

Then it was time for all the holiday parties and shopping while making sure to squeeze in an early Christmas with family before our big trip. We had our usual monthly lingerie meet up and a few holiday trunk shows as well as a Victoria's Secret viewing party (#vsrobeparty) complete with hilarious commentary from industry professionals. I also got to review some awesome comfy undies from Fleur’t Intimates and share some of my worst holiday baking fails.
Now it's time to pack our bags and kiss the cat goodbye as we jet off to Paris, London and Dublin for Christmas and New Year’s. WonderLust will be closed at this time (from December 22th to January 5th) and any orders placed then will be shipped out on January 6th. However, just because we're closed doesn't mean we're not working! I'm sure you'll see plenty of pics and posts about our travels and lingerie adventures these next couple of weeks.
But until then we hope you have a warm and wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year! Thanks for being such great supporters of WonderLust and we can't wait to pay it forward to all of you in 2016!
