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.

Snooki's been on a tip-dyeing kick! She started off the summer in hot pink and blonde strands, then she went straight-up blonde, and, most recently, she sported a purple, blonde, and black 'do. This time, though, our Jersey Shore girl not ONLY changed her tips to solid bright crimson red, but she also switched her roots from midnight black to a warm chestnut brown. Her new ombre look screams fall, and we're kinda digging it. We think it really adds some warmth around her face and *gasp* maybe makes her look even TANNER? (Someone please confirm/deny.)
But Snooks also found even MORE ways to get into the fall spirit—by carving some pumpkins! In true Snooki fashion, she didn't take the traditional route and actually made a Halloween homage to FASHUNN. (Truly a girl after our own heart.) So what kind of crafty craziness did our meatball get into? Let's find out!
Last night's Jersey Shore season finale wrapped up 12 glorious episodes of insane drama, one-of-a-kind style moments, and memories SO hilarious that they will last us forever. But there's no reason to be too sad just yet—you can continue the Jersey Shore legacy by dressing up as your favorite housemate for Halloween! And if you REALLY want to score some bonus points, get all of your friends to dress up as the cast and have an Italian-style Sunday dinner right before you head out—just like at the Jersey Shore house! I know, I know, it's SUCH a good idea. You're welcome.

Snooki's moved on since her high pouf and towering stiletto days—now she rocks leopard print and furry Mukluk-style boots on (almost) a daily basis. Cop the new meatball look by adding colorful extensions, studs, and booty shorts. NOTE: You'll need a spray tan before diving into this ensemble, but that goes without saying, right?

Deena wears a light-up bow headband on "Jersey Shore."
You guysssss. It's over. Jersey Shore Season 4 is officially DONEZO. The meatballs have left Italy and are on their way back to Jers for some serious GTL time. And you know what? We'll certainly miss their European style adventures (and Jersey Shore drama!), but we're happy to see that they've embraced some of the Italian fashion (*cough* JWOWW's hat *cough*). The season finale was filled with SO many gems it was hard to pick just one style champ, but we had to go with Deena. She wore an UH-MAZING light-up yellow bow headband not once—but twice—during the episode. (Yes, she actually went clubbing in that.) The best part about this accessory is that it literally goes with everything (I mean, it's a light. On her head. How does that not match?), and it's a great conversation piece. Here she paired it with a black tank, floral skirt, and espadrille wedges. But it also, apparently, caused Deena to lose her center of gravity. She was mopping up the floor to help tidy up the house and BAM! She slips and hits the ground pretty hard. Yipes.

If there's one thing we love about Snooki, it's her ability to find reasonably priced clothing that even us wee commoners can afford. When she stopped by Extra in L.A. on Monday, she wore an ensemble that you can cop for less than $40! *high five* Our Jersey Shore girl sported a poofed pony with huge silver hoops, a black blazer, tons of silver jewelry, and, as we've seen COUNTLESS times before, a flash of animal print. You can snatch up her hot pink sequin leopard tank from Charlotte Russe for only $20, and it's perfect for making an effortless transition from a cute daytime ensemble to a chic "going out" outfit. RAWR.
