GIFT GUIDE FOR BABES by Alison Capra

Holidays are here, but have no fear. I’ve come up with some seriously great ideas for what to get for all the babes this year. These are just a few of my new favorite things! Each Year Nick and I pick four things for each other from the following categories:

SOMETHING YOU WANT -SOMETHING YOU NEED

My nightstand was covered with gnarly tissues and my face only a swollen distorted resemblance of my former self.
