Many things come to mind when one thinks of Snookalicious: spray tans, smooshing, Crocodilly, pickles, cats—we could go on for DAYYSSS. Snooki stans, brace yourselves: All of her various predilections (well, at least tans, workouts, and cats) collided in this MONSTROUSLY EPIC photo she just released on Facebook. In the RIDIC picture, which shows Snookems behind-the-scenes at a photo shoot, she WERQUES her newly svelte frame (tanned to glorious orange perfection) in a shiny, pink one-piece swimsuit that is, um, a wee bit revealing.

Whether you're a fan of the tanned-up dudes and ladies of Jersey Shore or not, you have to admit the show has become QUITE the launching pad for multi-channel business giants. On the heels of her fellow cast members, JWOWW is the third of the Jersey girls to launch her own fragrance (the other two being Sammi with her Dangerous perfumes and Snooki, who just released her eponymous scent, you know, along with a GANG of other products stamped with her distinct personal brand) and is introducing it to the world today!

Here we go, y'all! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a delightfully jovial holiday in its own right in which you express gratitude for everything and everyone you're so lucky to have and enjoy in this world, and also pig out on so much deliciously sloth-inducing comfort food, but immediately after Turkey Day passes, the radio stations turn up those other winter holiday jams, retail spaces turn over stock and decor to the masters of red, green, and all that is white, and/or tinsel. But forget about all that for just a second and let's focus on today. This day that we're all living RIGHT NOW. It's special, too, you know? Namely because it's the lovely Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's day of birth! In honor of this collision of excuses for merrymaking, we're directing your attention to one singular object with the ability to tie it all together: the Snooki ornament.

It's something like common knowledge that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has a cat thing. She was a leopard for Halloween. She's covered many an object with animal print, from purses to nails to slippers. She's even been known to rock more than a few cat-themed accessories at once (*achem* peep that technicolor one she's been sporting lately). We thought the next step might be a pet cat. Or if she's too busy developing products and promoting her business empire, perhaps a giant plushy cat friend for Crocadilly. But never, ever, EVER did we think the feline-o-phile would go this far. Snooks appeared on Conan earlier this week applauding the beauty benefits of cat litter. Yes, CAT LITTER, PEOPLE.

Can you smell that? It's the scent of Snooki wafting all over, well, the WORLD really. Jersey Shore's favorite pint-sized meatball may be on hiatus from the show, but she's still out there promoting herself like one seriously savvy (and ambitious) entrepreneur. Not only did she recently launch both her signature perfume and a slew of products on HSN (did you get your hands on one of the coveted Crocodillies?) she's been rockin' all kinds of CRAY outfits to show off her new svelte physique. Remember that super tight black dress and side-swept hair combo at the EMA? Or those blinding Modcloth neon lace-up wedge booties she wore with a red leopard dress? Well, this is the permanently puckered guidette's new style AMMO because she popped by the set of Extra wearing those very same shoes and another body-con dress. Her hair was something else altogether, though. Snookems has been keeping it more natural these days, but it looks like the pouf she made famous has returned—or rather, it has morphed into some sort of '60s-style coiffure teased to EXTRA high heights.

Whew, Snooki had one busy week that culminated in a mega Las Vegas-style party to celebrate her birthday. That's right, y'all, Miss Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is officially 24! (Cue the glitter, confetti, and bedazzled piñata.) She's practically a quarter of a century old but isn't showing any signs of slowing down, what with the multitude of projects she's currently juggling. Although Jersey Shore is on hiatus, our lovable guidette has been keeping busy with a new signature perfume that she's currently selling on the Home Shopping Network along with a plethora of other Jersey-style gifts like bags, slippers, and stuffed crocodiles—or, CROCODILLIES if you want to get specific. Her appearance on a recent HSN segment was a hit, and Snookems SOLD OUT of said crocs before the show was even over. She's a bona fide businesswoman! Oh, and did we mention she also subjected herself to a Funny Or Die vid mocking her perfume?

Remember when Abercrombie and Fitch got all meanieface on The Situation and asked him to refrain from wearing their clothes? Well, that got some people thinking—are there other clothing designers who cringe at the sight of their clothes on someone they dislike? When Bullett magazine caught up with Chloë Sevigny about her Opening Ceremony collection, Ms. Sevigny copped to a reality addiction as her guilty pleasure and dished on her feelings about the Jersey Shore cast wearing her threads. "If Snooki wants to wear my clothes, go for it." CHURCH.

It's SNOOKI in IRELAND, y'all! She's just chillin' on the pink carpet at the 2011 EMA with NEW HAIRRRR, ca-ching bling, and all kinds of snazzy bedazzling while, most likely, waiting for her mega-tanned, juiced-up, leprechaun meatball prince to carry her away to a (chilly) Irish beach. All we have to say is, you can take the girl outta Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey Shore outta the girl. Snooks was all about a super-sliiiim fitting look to show off her bodacious bod and perma-tan, but that's not just what captured our attention. It was this new, CHIC, side-swept hairDO and inverted, intricate mani. What exactly IS painted on her nails?

Halloween may be over and stores may have already started switching out the ghoulish black and orange in favor of wax cornucopias and bushels of tinsel, but that doesn't mean there isn't still a LOT of action to rehash from the night before while you rehabilitate from your scary movie marathon hangover and/or sugar coma. Chief among these obviously being the costumes of our Jersey Shore dudes, Pauly D, Vinny, and The Situation, proving that the Shore girls aren't the only ones to go all out for Halloween. Ranging from simple to balls-to-the-wall dedicated to eyebrow-raisingly classy, these boys did us proud last night with their excellent display of holiday spirit. Always ones to stir the pot, though, we want to make things a little more interesting by pitting their ensembles against one another.
