BRYANT PARK—Kate Spade is not joking around with the holiday cheer this year. In addition to a cute campaign and some decked-out stores, the label is hosting a pop-up igloo next to the park's Citi Pond skating rink. The igloo opens at 10am every day, closing at 10pm during the week, 11pm Friday and Saturday nights, and 8pm Sunday. Stop by for free cocoa and shopping before December 16, when it pops back down.

BED-STUY—Remember Tionna Smalls? The woman who managed to turn her insanely entertaining Gawker advice column into a VH1 reality show where she helped Chilli from TLC find love? That resume alone would have been enough for some people, but Smalls is now opening an accessories boutique called Loveys this Saturday. As she explains in an email, "Loveys will be the new paradise for women who are looking to add a little bit more diva or flair to their style." The email also announces that What Chilli Wants has been picked up for another season, so maybe the shop will make a cameo. [Racked Inbox]
