Nail your Gameday Style

Twenty years ago, you couldn't really paint your nails to match your team unless your team colors had red or pink in them.  Today, there is no reason that your toes and fingers can't match your team on gameday, whether you're sporting orange and blue or black and gold and everywhere in between.  

It is fun to get to know new people at games throughout the season.  Sasha, who has a fun blog, Sasha Says, is a new friend from this past season that I met at a friend of a friend's tailgate (all of them super friendly opposing team fans, mind you).  Sasha blogs about a lot of topics but one of her most frequent is nail polish.  Throughout the fall, Sasha has reviewed many different nail colors by OPI that she posted to her manicure blog called 
Manicure Mommas.  

One of Sasha's most recent posts is on glittery, sparkly, oh-so-holiday-ee, polishes, which happen to cover some of our favorite team colors.

And not only does Sasha have the inside scoop on special holiday nail polish releases, but she introduces her readers to OPI's Spring 2012 Holland Collection with polishes, with super team spirit again,  such as this:

Vampsterdam (OPI)
A Roll in the Hague (OPI)

Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI? (OPI)

I Don't Give a Rotterdam! (OPI)
And the Crackle nail polishes have taken the gameday world by storm.  Since most teams have two colors and crackle finish polishes use two colors, Gameday Style has seen lots of crackles at games this year.  Here are some that Sasha tried.  You can read the entire post here....

Go give a look and a follow. The nail polishes that Sasha features and recommends are great for gameday (of any sport!) and for a fun Christmas gift to give to a friend that has team spirit.  Along with the nail polish in formatives, Sasha also has fun everyday stories about being a "married, working mom of two, who tends to overshop and can't say no to new food and beauty products".  And from the looks of her tailgate, Sasha also happens to have a lot of Gameday Style!

Save that Turkey! It's Gumbo time...

Life is so simple and delicious when you follow a formula such as this. Get your turkey going for gumbo while cleaning up after the feast on Thursday evening and you'll be all ready for Saturday and/or Sunday's tailgating or football-on-TV watching.   Garden and Gun tells us how. from Garden and Gun  magazine Day-After Gumbo Turn your Thursday bird into a Friday  Saturday feast If the day after Thanksgiving is your favorite food day of the year, then Justin Devillier, of  La Petite Grocery  in New Orleans, is your kind of chef. “Although leftovers ‘as is’ are good, turning them into another celebratory meal keeps the holiday eat fest going at my house,” he says. On Thanksgiving night, the chef covers the carved turkey carcass with water, and as the family party winds down, the roasted bones simmer away, forming a rich stock. The next morning, he adds aromatics and andouille, and stirs in a nice dark roux. “I like mine as dark as I can get it without burning it,” he
