Wanna take a mini vacation from the cold? H&M's Spring 2011 Lookbook video will warm you right up!

And what better way to warm up on a chilly winter day than with the 25 most romantic movie quotes of all time? Yes, The Notebook is on there.

*

If you're like me and STILL haven't seen Black Swan (I know, I know!), Fashionista's list of the best ballet-inspired editorials will help tide you over.

*

Ever read Craiglist's "Missed Connections" section? Well, a new website, Likealittle.com, is like Missed Connections - except for college students. Post an anonymous note to your campus crush or just browse - either way, it's fun!

*

Fabsugar has some fab (ha) gift ideas for your wonderful mom!

*

And while gift guides are fabulous, it can be even more fun (and inspiring) to read people's wish lists, instead! I love this idea.

*

These DIY gift toppers will help you make those presents even more beautiful.

*

Okay, one last Holiday gift-related post! I loved The Glamouri's list of gorgeous coffee table books.

*

Have you checked out the new Facebook profiles yet? For once, this FB change seems pretty well-received.

*

Need some more apartment decorating inspiration? I normally like all things clean & modern, but this Victorian-esque bedroom is so pretty! The best part? You can recreate it with stuff from IKEA. Genius.

*

VenusZine lists the top 25 tweets of 2010 so you can relive the memories, and the hilarity, of the past year.

*

Not gonna lie, it's hard not to be obsessed with Chanel's pre-fall 2011 collection. Drooooooolll.

*

Umm, is this real life Gossip Girl?

*

Have a vacation planned for winter break? Fabsugar shows you the best way to pack a carry-on suitcase. (Trust us: You can fit way more stuff in there than you think!)

*

It may be from Men's Health, but this list of health tricks to teach your body is just cool, no matter your gender.

*

We all know how to make 8-pointed paper snowflakes, but these 5-pointed ones are even cooler - and they're just as simple to make!

*

This DIY Ornament Wreath is another cool holiday decoration that isn't too expensive to do!

*

I posted this on our Twitter yesterday, but in case you didn't see it, check out the most Holiday-perfect ring of all time! I'm obsessed.

*

If you're not hungry right now, this recipe for white chocolate mousse with cocoa nib shortbread cookies will have you drooling in no time.

*

Um, these amazing boots prove that Alexander Wang can pretty much do no wrong. Ever.

*

A good way to assess your current closet situation: Would you buy it again?

*

How to make fingerless gloves - such a cute DIY project! (And they'd make great gifts, too.)

*

My inner OCD Virgo loves this (plus, okay, it's perfect for finals week): Things You Can Straighten or Organize in Five Minutes or Less.

*

Lily Aldridge's Hair > All Other Hair.

*

I know the whole "recreating Lady Gaga as a Barbie" thing isn't new, but EW barbie-fied a few of her newer outfits, including the meat dress!

*

Okay, just to warn you, this is potentially offensive and curse word-ridden (but funny if you don't take it seriously): If Historical Events Had Facebook Statuses.

*

Also funny, CF reader Nicole emailed me a humorous post she recently wrote: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Minutes.
