2010 gift guides: holiday shine

Everyone needs a good excuse to break out his or her glitziest best for the holidays, right? While I think it is totally justifiable to wear sequins year-round, and find gold to be timeless, I can understand if you aren’t in that camp. ‘Tis the season to inject a little shine into your life, even if it’s a small dose. Here are a few fun ways to jazz up your home and accessorize your life with a little extra shine. — Ginny

I love these shiny items! I included that dictionary in a post not too long ago…what a great accessory for an office!

I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation at lavish and will be using a lot of your pointers of the the next couple months.



LOVE the stainless steel straws!
i actually saw these at west elm for $12 (for 4). was going to get them for my boyfriend’s sister but they were sold out. at any rate, they are $6 less there than at the site that’s posted!


I purchased similar stainless straws from West Elm recently. I LOVE THEM! They are a great way to prevent lipstick transfer to my glasses. So much easier to clean.
