Cute! Engraved Rolling Pins Will Make Your Baked Goods So Much Prettier

Cat Rolling Pins

Zuzia Kozerska, a Polish designer, makes kitschy rolling pins engraved with just about every design under the sun. Guess what’s on my wish list now? You can use them to bake cookies covered in dinosaurs, mustaches, robots, or even a custom design of your choice. Naturally, I’m an especially big fan of the cat design, but her Etsy shop has about a million other nifty options as well. While $40+ is a bit pricy for a rolling pin, you can’t deny your baking will be totally unique. [22 Words]

Must Haves: A Wedding Dress For A Wedding Guest For $100 Or Less

This weekend, Amelia and I are both attending weddings. As a frequent wedding guest, this particular wedding season has been a challenge. I have worn and re-worn every single dress in my closet. Last weekend, I offered Katie three dresses from my collection to borrow for a wedding she was attending, because she too, has more weddings than dinner plans this summer. At this point, I am on a mission to donate all of my old dresses and stock up on new ones at summer sales — here’s what I’ve found so far!

15 Comments You Should Never Make About Someone’s Makeup

response-to-rude-people

It doesn’t matter how bad someone’s makeup is, you should never say one of these eye roll-inducing lines. They are as annoying as telling people what’s wrong with their eyebrows. Someone with crooked eyeliner may not have realized that there are tips to correct shaky hands. Or maybe they haven’t figure out how to contour their faces properly a la Kim Kardashian? (Contouring is difficult and can go wrong very easily). It’s fine to subtly drop a few hints about how to apply mascara to your bottom lashes without it smudging. And you should definitely tell someone if they have white powder all over their face, because that certainly isn’t intentional. Just please be kind and don’t say these comments about someone’s makeup. Read more on The Gloss…

4th Of July DIY

Approximately 98.64 percent of Americans will barbeque this weekend (that’s a fabricated statistic, but I don’t think I’m off by much) in celebration of Independence Day. Usually, I’m not the type to decorate for an afternoon grill session, choosing to focus all my energy on the food and booze, but for the 4th of July, a little something-something is in order. Here are three easy DIY projects that will add a little red, white, and blue to your 4th Keep reading »

Want: This Light-Up T-Shirt Plays Tetris

Tetris Tshirt
Yes Please!

With the help of 4 batteries and 128 LEDs, you can actually play Tetris on this T-shirt! The buttons on the side of the light-up display work as controls. The creator, Marc Kerger, put it together to celebrate the game’s 30th anniversary. He provides the link to the Tetris theme song on his YouTube page if you’re looking for a little background music to fill the creepy silence of his video. Can somebody sell these on Etsy please?

Must Haves: 7 No-Show Panties

We have all been there. You put on a pair of white shorts, stretchy leggings, a jersey skirt or a chiffon dress and proudly strut out the door only to realize that in the light of day, your outfit is straight up see-through. Your ass walks down the street saying “GOOD DAY!” to everyone it passes. And it happens more often than any of us want to admit. But the thing is, this is totally avoidable. There are several types of full coverage “nude” or skin-colored seamless panty options out there — here’s where to find them.

Beauty Test Drive: Formula X Press Pods

Beauty Test Drive: Formula X Press Pods

It’s inevitable: whenever you have somewhere to go, your nail polish chips. Today, three of my nails chipped — so annoying! I was about to use my emergency nail polish remover that I have stashed in my desk, until I remembered a few of my nails were accented with glitter — and there was no way I had enough remover to get all that tough to remove gunk off. So now what? Eight bare nails and two glittery tips? Heck no. Instead I decided to try redoing my entire manicure using the Formula X Press Pods I was sent last week. I say “try” because t I skeptical that this little pod would offer 2 coats of polish to all 10 fingers. So how did it go? Keep reading »

Found: The Most Perfect Mason Jar Of Them All

If Pinterest Was Real
A cautionary poem. Read More »

Like any twenty-something middle class white woman with a Pinterest account, I love mason jars. I want to organize and compartmentalize my entire life in a collection of artfully arranged mason jars. I firmly believe there is no such thing as too many mason jars. I will always say yes to mason jars. So when Jarden Home Brands contacted me and asked if I’d like to give their 100th anniversary green mason jars a spin, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. Of course I said yes.

I opted for the pint size jars, which are perfectly proportioned to use as drinking glasses, for DIY projects, or storing a wide variety of foods, cosmetics, toiletries, or large spiders that you don’t want to kill but are too scared to put outside.  The green tint is so eye-catching and ideal for decorating around the house. Also they’re made in the USA. What’s not to love?

Here is a brief sampling of the ways I’ve used my mason jars so far, none of which are earth-shatteringly original, but damn if these things aren’t versatile: Keep reading »
