Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Floating Leaves

A nearly invisible thread connects the two leaf pendants on this necklace, which makes it look like they’re floating on your collarbone. The result is a gorgeous and unique piece of jewelry, although it might cause strangers to stare at your chest (not super enjoyable). And possibly start rumors that you’re a witch (always enjoyable).

Food I Need To Try: Fried Kool-Aid

In general, my favorite fare comes from the state fair. As a kid, I fell in love with deep-fried Oreos and Mars Bars and pickles. More recently, as fryers got more creative, I marveled at deep-fried Coca-Cola. And now we have the next frontier: deep fried Kool-Aid, a treat that Charlie Boghosian whipped up for the San Diego County Fair using cherry Kool-Aid, flour, and water dunked in oil. While the Washington Post isn’t into it, I think it sounds delicious. Though for the record, in years past, Boghosian made deep-fried butter which doesn’t sound nearly as appealing.

Would You Decorate With Your Own Face?

There’s even a name for it: Autodecorating. And Gawker’s calling out the worst offenders: Along with Lindsay and Paris, Kanye West, Padma Lakshmi and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”‘s Kim Zolciak are guilty of filling their houses with paintings, photos and — most notoriously — pillows with their likenesses. Now, I kind of understand celebrities’ motivation here: These are people who are accustomed to seeing their faces on billboards and in magazines. They’re desensitized to it. Right? Or maybe because they make their living off of their faces they’re just excited to pay tribute to their moneymaker. In any case, it’s hardly surprising.

I’m more interested in the rules of face-centric decorating for us normal, non-famous people. So I turned to two friends who own self-portraits. Hear them out! Read more… Keep reading »

Crap You Don’t Need: Jelly Belly Scented iPhone Case

Something new to file under “Crap You Don’t Need”: techies can now choose what their smartphone will smell like. ESI Cases is selling five new cases, each scented like a different flavor of Jelly Belly jelly beans — Strawberry Cheesecake, Very Cherry, Blueberry, Berry Blue and Licorice. The cases sell for $15 a pop and are available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, and Blackberry. Honestly, I wouldn’t want my iPhone case to smell like any of these flavors because then I’d be constantly craving sugar. But Marc Jacobs perfume? Fresh figs? Jasmine? I could dig it. If you had a scented smartphone case, what would you want it to smell like? [Gizmodo] Keep reading »

Yes, Versace Is Doing A Line For H&M

Donatella Versace–the most tanned woman in fashion and pretty much anything else–has announced she’s doing a collaborative diffusion line with H&M, despite announcing in 2008 that she’d nevah, evah work with the Swedish company. “I respect everyone who does it,” she said way back then. “But the reason I didn’t do it is because I work very hard to put the Versace line in the luxury section. I think to put the Versace line in H&M would confuse the brand.” But my, how things have changed. There’ll be around 40 pieces for women and 20 for men. And judging from the look on the left, we’ll be buying — will you? Watch Donatella talk about the new line after the jump! [Global Grind]
