The Sweet Smell Of Happiness

Get Into Candles
How to become a candle person. Read More »

Aside from being a very sound-sensitive person, I’m also pretty scentsitive, if you catch my drift. And since we work in an open plan office, and can’t control the noises and smells around us, I’ve discovered a helpful little tool to make my workspace as calming and peaceful as possible. Aircraft ScentSticks come in 12 different scents, which can be used alone or combined with one another to create custom fragrances. The scentsticks are a lot like aromatic diffuser sticks, but come with no messy liquids, so they’re perfect for the office or home space (especially if you’re clumsy like me and tend to accidentally knock things over). And because each stick lasts about a week, a full set of them will get you through several months. You can read more about how I use them over on Aircraft’s blog, or just try ‘em yourself!

Everybody deserves a kitten of their own to love, pet and cuddle with. Even St. Bernards. Here, Abby patiently lets this gray kitten walk all over her — and even lets the kitten attempt to suckle from her paw. [YouTube]

Jimmy Choo Honors 90-Year-Old Iris Apfel — With A Stiletto

Iris Apfel is the grand dame of quirky, eccentric style. And luxury shoe maker Jimmy Choo wanted to honor Apfel’s signature look by designing a shoe after her. Dubbed the Iris, the five-inch heel will almost certainly never be worn by the diminutive 90-year-old New Yorker. And we’re not sure who else will be picking up a pair either — considering they’re going for $1495 a pop. Do you think Iris digs ‘em? She is a pretty hard sell. [Jimmy Choo]

Occasionally, Twitter users take on a cause that isn’t just posting pictures of their cats or ruminating on the injustices of waiting in line at Shake Shack. Like today’s hashtag campaign, started by blogger and Twitter-er London Feminist. The #ididnotreport campaign (which definitely comes with a trigger warning for those who have suffered sexual assault or abuse), encourages women to share their stories of sexual assault and the reasons why they may or may not have reported their experiences.

Here’s Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj in a new ad series for M.A.C.’s Viva Glam collection. All sales from their lip conditioner (Ricky’s) and lipstick (Nicki’s) go toward helping families impacted by HIV and AIDS, so it’s a great cause. But aside from that, this ad just makes me really, extremely happy. Look at Ricky Martin lift that lipstick! [M.A.C.]

Tim Tebow, Gross
We question his appearance on a lady site's list of "hot" dudes. Read More »

Chris Kaman is the center forward for the New Orleans Hornets basketball team, apparently one of the worst teams in the league. Last night, the Hornets played against the Charlotte Bobcats, and Chris thought that he would use an age old intimidation tactic to scare his opponents: Twitter. So he posted a couple of photos of himself on the social networking site — with a dead bobcat. Gross, you say? Tacky? Totally disgusting and effed up? Yeah, that’s about right. Keep reading »
