Hot stuff celebrities love

 

Shop

Christopher Radko knows Christmas. Known for its attention to detail and handcrafted workmanship, the North Carolina company has been putting out mouth-blown European glass ornaments for more than a quarter century. This year called for a team-up with Godiva. The adorable bauble with Santa and a box of chocolates looks good enough to eat but, sorry, not edible. The little chubby guy is $25 with any $40 purchase. www.godiva.com

Drink

Put aside the idea of wine and beer if you can for a moment. A new trend in drinking is afoot: premium hard cider. Straight from Sweden, Rekorderlig (try saying that three times fast after a few) is made from pure spring water and is available in tastebud tingling flavors like Wild Berry, Pear and Strawberry Lime. Uncap a bottle at The Standard, Bar Crudo, Broken Shaker and Sweetwater Beer Garden. www.rekorderlig.com/us

Try

The stress of the holidays (shopping, lists, traffic, lines, happy Facebook posts from “friends” who got everything done) can take its toll. Since there is no feasible way you have time for a spa appointment, help defy time and keep wrinkles at bay with a little skincare love. Any one of Algenist’s three new gift sets can help out in the firming, lifting and general renewal department. If you’re feeling Zen, give one away as a present. At Sephora and www.algenist.com

Another possibility: Super infuse your skin and fight the signs of aging with blisslabs active 99.0 collection, made with some seriously advanced ingredients including rose, kojic acid, phyto-retinoids, gardenia stem cells and niacinimide. This seven-piece collection took three years to develop and addresses all the signs of aging to keep you out of the plastic surgeon’s office one more year. www.BlissWorld.com

Give

Feeling the itch to do something good for those in need? Not-for-profit organization The International Rescue Committee (with an office in Miami) has put out its holiday catalog, with collections from such IRC Voices as “Homeland” actress Morena Baccarin, Grammy winner John Legend, and telenovela star Jencarlos Canela. http://gifts.rescue.org

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.

    At 88, Hollywood legend Lee Grant looks back in ‘I Said Yes to Everything’

    Actress Lee Grant came that close to washing Shampoo out of her hair when co-star Warren Beatty told her how to play the scene when she learns he has seduced her character’s daughter. The matter got resolved after she spoke to the actual director, Hal Ashby, and then to Beatty again. Not only did she win an Oscar for the role, but she and Beatty became great friends, even sharing a few passionate kisses after filming ended.
