happy holi-daze gift guide: one for you, one for me...

i hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it actually is the gift that counts. let's be honest, no one is interested in the thought behind a flavored ham of the month club. and if you think that i could use anything at all that is sold exclusively on television at three o'clock in the morning, please think again. the wrong gift can turn a perfectly functional family gathering into the following: twelve accounts payable, eleven assigned seats, ten crocodile tears, nine family feuds, eight sucker punches, seven binge eaters, six sibling rivalries, five intoxicated confessions, four kissing cousins, three surprise engagements, two new chefs [who made the potato salad?], and a raw turkey to eat. i've compiled a lovely list of gift ideas guaranteed to bring only peace, love, and joy. i am wishing you all so much bliss and many blessings this holiday season.

reel talk. xoxo...joy.

even though i don't participate in the school of thought that greatness is determined by votes and awards, i watched the oscars last night. i have a personal conflict with accolades creating purpose and acknowledgment being the road to promise. internal struggles aside, the artistry involved in character study connects us on the most basic level – pure raw emotion. the subject matter runs the gamut of intensity. it is confrontational, hilarious, and inspiring. film depicts the love, the life, and the loss that defines the human experience.

write your own script and pick your co-stars carefully. the reward is in your personal pursuit of bliss.

xoxo…joy

gifted: dogeared.


i can still hear my mother warning the junior high version of myself – "don't wear your feelings on your sleeves!" she was adamant that no one should ever know what joy builds me and what despair breaks me. that's entirely too much power for someone else to have. dogeared has a different approach to expressing what lies beneath. they showcase words to live by via cotton canvas totes, inspired charms, and an entire range of accessories that are literal statement pieces. treat yourself to some self reflection.

charms shown: xoxo | live in love | be the change | free spirit | create peace | karma
