What’s Hot This Month: December and HGTV Holiday Countdown Day 1

Hello Fabulistas and happy December! I’ve been to Paris and London for Christmas, but there’s nothing as wonderful as Christmas in New York. I’m also counting down to my HGTV Holiday special on Dec. 13! There are so many fabulous things to see and do this month. Just think of it as the 12 Days of Robin! In the meantime, here’s my Christmastime to-do list.

Holiday store windows

It would not be Christmas if you didn’t take a walk to go window shopping to Barneys and the most famous windows of the world. It’s an absolute for anyone coming to or already in New York. Holiday store windows in other parts of the world don’t even compare! Read more about my favorite holiday window displays here.

The Nutcracker at NYC Ballet

It doesn’t seem like Christmas without The Nutcracker. I’ve seen many versions over the years that are fabulous within their own rights, but it just seems so much more magical at Lincoln Center! It’s a traditional activity that’s not to be missed. The sets and costumes are fab and awe-inspiring, no matter how many times I’ve seen it.

Ice skating at Bryant Park

Taking a spin on your ice skates on one of New York’s iconic rinks is something that never loses its luster! It’s hip, happening, and you’re bound to see all kind of interesting things. Bryant Park is my all-time favorite of the city’s rinks.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular

Seeing the Rockettes in all their Christmas glory is so iconic New York! No matter how many times I’ve seen the show, I enjoy it as much as the first time. Dancing aside, it’s worth attending just to marvel at all the glitzy costumes.

Holiday House NY

I always look forward to touring the Holiday House NY because it showcases some of New York’s best designers and supports the fight against breast cancer. It’s open seven days a week through Dec. 18. Isn’t this corner fab? And it’s just a glimpse of what’s inside!
