[RECAP] Million Dollar Decorators: Episode 6

Last week, Martyn redesigned Daisy Fuentes' living room (ayayayyyy), Nathan threw an Indian-themed party, Kathryn looked like the bird lady from Home Alone 2 (and, coincidentally, stopped following me on Twitter), and Jeffrey and Ross got into a fight and then promptly took a bath together.

This week, Martyn goes to London, Kathryn hits on an ex-boyfriend, Jeffrey rips up some floors, and Mary gets an Edible Arrangement.

Here we go.

[GIFTED] Guns, Germs & Steal Wallets

A friend sent me these brass wallets from Guns, Germs & Steal, mainly because she knows how much I love money and gangsta vernacular.

They're $120 and they come engraved with several different phrases, included "Fuck money, get bitches," "I need a dime," "Money ain't a thang," and more.  You can get the interiors lined with several different textiles, including denim, serape, leather, and plaid.  

Is there a secret compartment to keep cash hidden from your pimp?  Not sure.  This is the perfect gift for your very white friends who look like they would love Taylor Swift, but instead love Notorious BIG.

[ROUND-UP] Independent Dress for Independence Day

It's an American tradition to be largely ungrateful for all of the wonderful things we have.  So, in honor of the 4th of July, here's some red, white, and blue-themed junk you can wear while you're ignoring our hard-won freedom and painfully violent history in favor of blowing shit up and drinking daiquiris. 

1. FOXTROT Bracelet ($68, Miansai)

2. Sperry Topsider Boat Shoes ($75, REI)

3. Levant 10 Tee ($65, Saint James)

4. Way-Farers ($145, Ray-Ban)

5. Gingham Shirt ($69.50, J Crew)

My 5 Best Gifts: Megan Biram of Mimi+Meg

Let's face it: giving the perfect gift to someone is like standing on top of a mountain and shouting, "HEY EVERYONE, I'M NOT AN EMOTIONAL CRIPPLE!"

[YOU'RE WELCOME] Grad Gifts for the Future of America

High school graduations have been happening throughout the past few weeks, and you know what that means: you will spend an enormous amount of time sitting in other people's backyards at graduation parties, feeling the enthusiasm and anxiety radiating from all of the drunk 18-year-olds that you're surrounded by.

They're so excited for their future! 

It's cute, right?  The last time you got that excited was when you bought new pillow shams.  And then you realized how pathetic it is that you're so boring that something like pillow shams can really get you going.

"How did my life turn out like this?" you think, bitterly, as you watch people obscenely younger and thinner than you smile and laugh and look forward to the future. 

What do you have to look forward to?  Filing your taxes?  More new pillow shams?  Turning 40?  DYING? 

Perhaps the best gift you can give to someone going off to college is to not break down in the middle of their party crying.  Definitely don't scream "WHATEVER YOU DO, JUST DON'T GRADUATE EVER" in between sobs, either.
