Fashion & Finance Friday!

Happy Holidays!
Apologies for the late in the day posting, but reversecommuter is on vacation in the Great White North (Cananda) visiting friends & relatives.  Kinda cold and snowy here but SO FUN!!!!!!!!

Apple’s App Store reported an 87% increase from 2011 on Christmas Day app downloads – Santa’s sack must have been loaded down with iPads & iPhones!

Christmas came early to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation! Mark Zuckerberg donated $500 MILLION to the organization, which then directs the funds to preselected charities.

Champs (a subject near and dear to reverse commuter, click the blue to see previous posts proving this!) and particularly seasonal with New Year’s right around the corner is suffering a slump in sales, especially in France. The French champagne sales are down 4.7% this year, but worry not fabulous blog readers, prosecco sales are on the rise across the EU as the economic woes influence purchases. Meanwhile back in the USA champs sales are up – and please note that is not completely my work!

Not exactly sure of the last time I wore velvet, but I was definitely still describing my age in “and a half” terms.
