Let’s start with gifts. Giving can be a real joy, especially when you see the recipient smiling and truly enjoying it. I found this fun nail kit from Planet Beauty for…uh…well, I won’t say who cause she may read this, but anyhow, I got it! And look how fun it is, truly her personality.

In case you need a little prompting to think of what to be thankful for, here’s my list for this Thanksgiving:
