“Nail It” for Spring

If you’re getting the itch to update your look, but have a minimal budget, the answer is NAILS! And this season, anything goes. Our pal Elaine D’Farley filled us in on how to design our digits.

Basically, go with whatever your heart desires. Creative is key. Elaine likes to use Sally Hansen’s 3D textures because you just swipe them over your nail color for an instant style pick me up. So easy!

If you’re feeling funky, top on the glitter and add extra shine, or go bold with the cracked look…more sophisticated, try something matte. The point is to have fun! If you don’t like it, you can just take it off.

Rainbow of Smiles Stocking Stuffer

A few of us on the LM Team are moms and it’s hilarious to hear the stories about trying to get the little ones to brush their teeth. We’ve tried it all from cute charactered brushes to bribing with candy (defeats the purpose of brushing, but hey, we’re trying) and most of us are still having a hard time.

But we may have found a solution…G-U-M Crayola toothpaste for kids comes in 3 different squeezable flavors that will make your kid actually want to brush his teeth. Perfect stocking stuffer too.
