Oh, Kim K. Where would the world be without you? (It probably wouldn't be that much different, but this is a nice question to ask). The world would certainly contour less, strobe less, and slick back hair less. The world would probably also be significantly bored without envy-stalking your Instagram.

On her app, she wrote about "push presents," which are gifts the father of the child gives to the mother of the child to celebrate their child's birth. It's a reward that says, "Yay, you possibly tore your vagina open or have a permanent scar across your stomach because I impregnated you! Have a cookie!" Or, in this case, a diamond choker.

In a tone that sort of adopts that topical "Christmas Wishlist for Santa" format, Kim wrote "This pregnancy, I would love a Lorraine Schwartz diamond choker, like the ones I've worn before to the Art + Film Gala." This year, she wore a diamond choker with a custom Givenchy sheer dress and last year, she wore a deep teal silk dress you can buy on sale from Cushnie et Ochs.

Kim claims that "[My friends and I] have the funniest e-mail chains discussing [push presents]." Who knows what her friends ask for?
