I stumbled upon these awesome custom mugs by BROOKLYNrehab and Miss Crowland and actually thought about how they would make a perfect couples Valentines Day gift. All you have to do is submit photos of you and your boyfriend/girlfriend/partner/wife/husband/lover/pet (yes, they do animals too if you want to get mugs of your furry friend)/etc. in profile and they do the rest. You’ll receive an e-mail containing digital profile portraits that you can then print, share on the Internet, etc. and be sent a set of matching mugs, like the ones above. I really like that they are a unique gift, they can bring joy on a daily basis (because coffee always makes me smile) and even though they are custom, if it doesn’t work out with you and your significant other you can always say you found the mugs at a garage sale and have no idea who is on them. I know, I’m such a romantic sometimes.
And in entirely unrelated news, as of last night, you can now see local clothing designer Jay McCarroll work his butt off (literally) on VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club 7: Boot Camp 2. I walked down the block to his place last night to join a small group of friends in enjoying some hors d’oeuvres and drinking some champagne in honor of the first episode and experienced the weird situation that is watching someone watch themselves on television. We all giggled at the camo visor he wore in the opening credits, which he defended, saying he wore it because he thought it was funny, and everyone agreed that K-Fed was the most shocking reveal when it was time for each cast member to strip down and face the scale.
Celebrity Fit Club 7: Boot Camp 2 is on Mondays at 8 p.m. on VH1 or check the listings because we all know how VH1 loves to replay episodes.
