It’s even more beautiful in person, and I’ve been getting so many compliments on it I thought, “Damn, everyone should have a cool piece of space jewelry!” Want to get in on the interstellar… READ MORE »

Maybe you’re mean, or maybe you’re just sassy. Maybe it’s Monday morning and you haven’t gotten your caffeine intravenously yet (three shots, please). Maybe it’s Saturday night and you feel like going to a trashy dive with your girlfriends without being approached by the lechers that generally come with it. Hell, maybe it’s Wednesday, and… READ MORE »
