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.

[en]joy: rescue beauty lounge.

      the gomm [nail polish] collection, from rescue beauty lounge, is for that feisty mouthpiece that commands that the dj spin for an extra hour. why? because her stilettos still feel like slippers and she's not going home until her favorite diner is open for breakfast. now i can't put the blame entirely on these striking shimmer dusted shades. but anytime a beauty product can take a dime from work to play, there's bound to be some drama.

this limited edition collection is sold exclusively on the rescue beauty lounge website.
