Have you ever fallen in love? Love is an intoxicating feeling you get when you know you've met the one, when you move to a city and have called it your own, the rush of emotions you feel when your friends surprise you on your birthday, or even when you take the first bite of the best apple pie you've had. Maybe it's watching re-runs of "Elf" or "Love Actually" that's giving us a warm, fuzzy feeling this holiday season. But as our editor-in-chief Stephanie Wu put it, "this winter, it's all about love." That's why we thought this would be the perfect time to celebrate love in our latest "Romance" Issue. In this issue, you'll find a staff slideshow on our first loves. Your first love doesn't have to be a person; it can be a stuffed animal, a city, a book, a persona, or even a chocolate chip cookie. First loves are a deep-rooted legacy in our hearts and it's always hard to go through your first breakup. After gathering our experiences with breakups and relationships, one of our writers put together a guide on how to get through a breakup. But even if you're flying solo, things aren't so bad. We've put together a list of the amazing perks of being alone. Be sure to also check out our exclusive interview with Katie Chang, who stars in academy-award-winning director Sofia Coppla's upcoming film "The Bling Ring," which is based on the story of fame-obsessed teens who robbed celebrities' homes, such as Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge, and Lindsay Lohan. We also created an extensive Holiday Gift Guide with most items under $100 that are perfect for family, friends, and significant others. And as a special holiday gift to our readers, we'd like to offer you a 20% discount off of all Folli Follie products. Use the promo code: HOLIDAY2012. This offer is valid through December 24, 2012. Happy shopping and happy holidays from all of us at Mochi magazine!
