    Get personal with your gift giving this Christmas and shop for monogrammed gifts. Whether you give a belt buckle (C.Wonder, $24) adorned with a single initial or a beauty box (PB Teen, $175) marked with an entire name, monogrammed gifts show that you put extra effort into making a gift special. On the other hand, if you're not quite sure what to get friends and family, monogrammed gifts can make shopping a whole lot easier. Pick something simple, like a pillow or toiletry bag set, that can be monogrammed with the initials of each person on your list. They'll love the thought behind their gift and you'll love the ease that went into finding it!

    You can find the prettiest monogrammed gifts, accessories, and decor at The Prowl. Check out this preview of gifts, then head to The Prowl for even more monogram gifting inspiration

    This year for the Fourth of July, I'm setting the bar a little higher with patriotic nail art. What better way to show your gratitude for our country's independence than with pretty nails?

    I'm not alone on this. Search Pinterest for patriotic nail art and you will see hundreds of pins and repins by people who think this is a pretty neat idea too! But is it realistic?

    I set out to determine whether average people like you and me can accomplish amazing-looking red, white, and blue nails just like we see on Pinterest.

    To prepare for the Fourth of July this year, I took my search to Pinterest for the perfect craft. What I found was a whole lot of patriotic tie dye. It doesn't get much more American than red, white, and blue tie dye, does it?

    After spending some time learning how to create the perfect tie dyed T-shirts, the kids and I went ahead and tried it. And just for you, I filmed the entire process! I'll admit this was my first experience working with tie dye. Was it as easy as Pinterest made it look? Would I win or would I fail? There's only one way to find out ...

    Oh have I got a Christmas gift for you! You know the amazing sock bun hairstyle? The one that, if you're like me, you sport almost every day? Well, there's a Christmas version of it, and it's beyond adorable.

    Stephanie over at Mama and Baby Love posted a picture of it on her Facebook page, and I fell in love at first sight. It basically uses that big perfect bun you've created as the base for a reindeer's face. You just add eyes, antlers, and, of course, a big red nose. It's adorable for kids and adults alike, and I love the thought of all of the people behind you smiling as you walk down the street spreading this holiday cheer.

    Here's how to do it.

    My 7-year-old is drawn to infomercial products like a fly to the Bug Zapper Racket ... like a dog to Bark Off ... like a senior citizen to the EZ Eyes Keyboard ... like a mom to those Meaningful Beauty products Cindy Crawford will practically bring to your door. In fact, my little princess is convinced the holidays will be a total disaster without a Big Top Cupcake.

    I'm not gonna lie, I've been smitten with some of those infomercial inventions myself. I own a couple of Snuggies, for instance -- everyone in the commercials looks so comfy on their couches while reading books and not feeling fettered by the constraints of a blanket. I've bought P90X, and Moon Sand, and Blendy Pens, and even Pillow Pets (before they sold them everywhere from Walmart to Shell stations).

    In fact, some of them are positively irresistible and I want to buy them as gifts. Here are a few I find both ridiculous and at the same time inexplicably appealing:
