This Ring Box Camera Records The Reaction To Your Proposal

This Ring Box Camera Records The Reaction To Your Proposal

For a senior engineering project, a team of students at Hope College in Michigan created an engagement ring box with a tiny camera in it for filming proposals. Now their Ring Cam is taking off as an actual business. When their prototype was still in development, the students asked some of their friends who were getting engaged to try out the camera and film the moment when their now-fiancees said yes. When the team saw the emotional videos the Ring Cam had captured, they knew they had created something special. “It’s definitely one of the most important moments in a couple’s relationship, and to be able to share that instantly with all your friends and family, and actually show them the moment and his or her actual reaction, the genuine surprise, and giddiness — it’s wonderful,” Scott Brandonisio told WZZM News. The creators even took the Ring Cam to an open-call audition for “Shark Tank,” the reality show for aspiring entrepreneurs, though there’s no word yet on whether they’ll head to the next round and make it on the show.

RIP Society: If He Likes It, He Should Put A Ring On It — But Get A Hand Lift First!

RIP Society: If He Likes It, He Should Put A Ring On It -- But Get A Hand Lift First!

Hey girl, are sure you’re ready for your boyfriend to propose? More specifically, is your hand ready for him to a put a big ol’ expensive rock on it? According to ELLEhand lifts — yes, face lifts for your handddddsssssss – are becoming increasingly popular with brides-to-be concerned that unsightly loose skin and wrinkles are distracting from their pretty baubles. Seriously, guys? I can’t.

Once upon a time, I got engaged and I suddenly had a big ol’ rock on my finger. I will admit that wearing such a beautiful piece of jewelry every day — a ring that didn’t turn my finger green and wasn’t purchased at Urban Outfitters or Forever 21 — did make me feel inclined to get more regular manicures. It just looked better with nicely shaped and freshly painted talons instead of chipped polish, straggly cuticles and dirt under my nails. But upping the frequency of my nail salons visits was a personal choice, not a requirement, and really ultimately silly and totally unnecessary. But a HAND LIFT?! Come. On. Keep reading »

Be My BFF: Woman In Red Vest Captures My General Attitude About Engagement Season

This photo, which recently surfaced on Reddit, depicts a gaggle of girlfriends, dressed up in their holiday finery, celebrating the engagement of not one, not two, but three of their own. Well, all but one is celebrating. Woman in the red vest, I FUCKING FEEL YOU, GIRL. I want to invite you over to my apartment for some wine and an epic bitch session. Yes, I’m sure we’re both totally happy for our friends who are in loving, committed relationships, blah blah blah, but sometimes being around them makes you want to shoot yourself in the head, doesn’t it? Especially when what you THOUGHT was a holiday party for all turns out to be an engagement celebration for a few. Congratulations but also PUKE. I stand with you in solidarity, Patron Saint Of No Fucks To Give! Will you be my BFF? [Reddit]

If you asked me two weeks ago, I would have told you that it’s tacky to announce your engagement on Facebook. Facebook is where you discover drunken photos of last night’s debauchery. Where you read status updates on what Sam is having for lunch, the latest internet meme, or what John is listening to on Spotify. Something as meaningful as an engagement should be announced in person or at least over the phone. Doesn’t making an engagement announcement on Facebook cheapen the moment? And of all of my “friends,” how many would really care? The answer? Hundreds. Keep reading »

Tony Romo Is Wrong About Wife’s Response To Marriage Proposal

Ever since he seemed to string ex-gf Jessica Simpson along, I’ve thought Dallas Cowboys player Tony Romo was kind of a schmoe. But now that’s all water under the bridge, and he’s happily married to Candice Crawford. I guess there are a handful of people out there (in Texas, most likely) who are really intrigued by his relationship with his now-wife, because he recently spilled to local Dallas news about the proposal. He admitted he was “a little nervous,” but then, “You see her start to cry, and you know you made a great decision.”

Hmmm. Let me get this straight: He thinks the fact that she bawled when he said, “Will you marry me?” means he was wise to propose? Huh?? I don’t see how the two add up.

Don’t get me wrong — I have nothing against women who end up crying when their guy (or gal) gets down on one knee. Read more… Keep reading »
