A Look Inside Christy’s Office

Holiday Cheer with Christy Pastore 

Favorite Holiday memory as a child – Going to Florida for two weeks every year for Christmas break. 
Until I was 19 I spent nearly every Christmas in Florida on a beach. 
Favorite holiday song – “Last Christmas” by Wham! 
Favorite holiday story – A Christmas Carol 
Favorite holiday movie – It’s a tie between National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and The Holiday. 
Favorite holiday dessert – Anything with peppermint in it … Peppermint Bark is delicious. 
Favorite holiday drink (drink of choice at a holiday cocktail party) - My favorite holiday drink is called a 
Jack Frost Martini. It’s a recipe my husband I came up with, it’s basically vodka wrapped in chocolate and 
peppermint goodness. At holiday parties I usually stick to the themed drink unless it is too sweet, then I 
go with white wine. 
Traditional holiday experience that you’ve never done or don’t understand (eggnog is gross, what in the 
world is a yuletide?)I don’t understand fruitcake. Does anyone? Ha ha  
Do you decorate for the holidays? (When do you start decorating?) Yes. For outdoor lights we wait as 
close to Thanksgiving as possible. They usually go up on a weekend, and we hope it’s in the 50’s or 
warmer. This year we put them up the Saturday before Thanksgiving. We turn them on Thanksgiving 
night. The tree and all indoor décor go up the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving. Gotta make the 
most out of the season. 

Follow Along with Rocking the Holidays tomorrow, December 10th where author Noelle Adams/Claire Kent will be featured on the sites listed below, plus there will be ways to enter the contest daily! 

About Christy Pastore 
Writer Christy Pastore grew up in the lakeside community of Syracuse, Indiana writing short stories that usually involved characters who loved to travel, had a passion for fashion and were often times swept up in boy crazy crushes. Many of her first stores also dealt with coming of age situations with their best girlfriends. 
Christy gave up reading books for several years, disillusioned with the annoying characters and predictable plot lines. Upon the recommendation of a friend, Christy picked up a much buzzed about popular romance novel which reminded her of why reading was such an enjoyable guilty pleasure. 
Writing has been a constant in Christy’s life, leading her to create a popular fashion blog, Fashion Wrap Up. This endeavor allowed Christy to have the wonderful experience of working and collaborating with many talented models, designers, makeup artists and photographers in the Fashion Industry. While Pastore still writes about fashion and celebrity style in her spare time, her passion for story development, more specifically creative writing, publishing and content creation has taken her on a new journey and career path: Author. 
Her debut novel, Fifteen Weekends will be out May 2014 just in time for you to add it to your summer reading list. 
Additionally, Christy enjoys a nice glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a warm cup of coffee, Gummi Bears, traveling and tweeting her thoughts on her favorite TV shows. 
Christy and her husband Kevin currently reside in St. Louis, Missouri in the popular Italian Neighborhood, The Hill, with their two lovable dogs and cooler than cool cat.
