[GIFTED] 7 Deadly Sins Glasses

Let's take a moment to consider the Seven Deadly Sins: lust, greed, gluttony, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride.

Let's break it down: Have you ever had a sexual thought?  LUST.  Have you ever wanted your stupid job to pay you more money?  GREED.  Have you ever eaten a Double Down from KFC?  GLUTTONY.  Have you ever watched six episodes of Law & Order: SVU in one sitting?  SLOTH.  Have you ever yelled at anyone ever?  WRATH.  Have you ever been jealous of someone giving your girlfriend/boyfriend some extra "attention"?  ENVY.  Have you ever attended a gay pride parade?  PRIDE.  

Good news!  We're all going to hell, because all of those things are the common spectrum of human emotion.  We might as well get drunk or something.  These 7 Deadly Sins Glasses ($72, Uncommon Goods) serve as a reminder of all of the fun ways you're damning yourself for eternity.

My 5 Best Gifts: Frances Schultz

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!"   

My 5 Best Gifts is a recurring feature that asks people to give up the goods on the best gifts they've given or received. 

Frances Schultz is a jack of all trades—specializing in decoration and design, food and entertaining, travel and style. She is author and co-author of a ton of books, former editor-at-large for Veranda, and currently a contributing editor at House Beautiful magazine.  Frances has also appeared as well on such programs as The Today Show, The Christopher Lowell Show, and CNN’s Open House.  Frankly, I wonder how she has time to sleep, let alone tell me about her best five gifts, but hey, whatever works!

[ETSY] Natural Edge Cutting Board

Deep down, all hippies want to sit around in a log cabin, surrounded by natural materials.  No plastic, no polyester, no synthetic ANYTHING.  One of my hippie friends once told me that she measures time by how long it takes a stick of incense to burn out (one hour).  Great.

Someone who measures time by burning sticks would love a big slap of wood as a cutting board.  She'll be able to slice her kale in style with this Natural Edge Cutting Board ($62, Red Onion Woodworks).

[RECAP] Million Dollar Decorators: Episode 4

Last week, Martyn taught a bunch of Mexicans how to clean a home the proper way for a sex tycoon, Jeffrey redid a gym bathroom, setting the perfect stage for a high-quality gay porn, and Kathryn launched her own spin-off: Hoarders: The Rich Nutcase Edition.

This week, we find out that Jimmy Choo is not run by a gay Asian man (or, a "Gaysian"), Mary doesn't listen to her client again, Jeffrey plans a birthday party, and Kathryn continues to plug her Hoarders spin-off.

Here we go.

[GIFTED] Grid Pillows

For the record, I'm not a big fan of pillows.  You walk into someone's living room, you try to sit down on their couch, and you're moving about 700 pillows just so you can sit comfortably. 

I think this stems back to when I was younger, when I had about 15 "dress pillows" on my [wicker] bed.  Every night, I'd have to spend 45 minutes taking all of the pillows off the bed and putting them neatly aside.  Then, the next morning I would have to make the bed and assemble Pillow Mountain once again.  Even at 5 years old, I knew this was tedious.

I think we can all draw the conclusion that this is why I hate pillows and it's also why I have not made my bed in probably about 9 months.  However, these Grid Pillows ($35, Henry Road) could ease my aversion.  But not by much.
