That’s One Spoiled Baby!

19 Apr

At just under $3,200 you can spoil your baby with their own Baby Jaccuzzi! It’s a little more expensive than just using your kitchen sink for baths—which probably came free with your home—but does your sink provide soft relaxing jets of bubbles? And does it have a set of colored LEDs on the bottom for soothing chromatherapy sessions? Probably not, which means you need to get the baby whirlpool by MagicBath!

The tub itself DOES look expensive and high quality…but what is up with the rubbermaid stand!?

Love Me, Love My Shoes!

26 Mar

Someone in Malaysia has come up with a genius idea: Shoe Dating! Listen up, this is about to get complicated…A guy chooses a pair of shoes from a store that he would like to see his potential “mate” wear. Then he pays for part of that shoe (leaves a deposit). Women then go into this store and shop as usual. When they go up to the register to buy a pair of shoes, they can get them at a discounted rate IF she goes on a blind date with the man who also chose that shoe (and paid for part of it- thus making it discounted).

Has the potential to be a modern-day Cinderella Story – unless of course you get matched with a weirdo with a creepy foot fetish!

Engagement Ring Trends for 2012

21 Mar

Another year, another trend! Last year it was a cluster of diamonds to give the illusion of one huge rock, and just a few years back everyone was crazy about princess cut…here are the engagement ring trends for 2012 according to fashion editors at Shine:

Black Diamond Engagement Rings: If you want something less traditional, go for the sophisticated and glamorous black diamond engagement ring. You can pick out a black diamond in a variety of styles, including vintage designs, a gemstone halo design, or a more contemporary cut that looks like a piece of modern art. Black diamonds set in a band with very intricate details and engravings can be a non-traditional alternative to gleaming white diamond rings.

 

Antique Engagement Rings: Vintage-style engagement rings can be much more elaborate and are often fashioned with pave-set diamonds, milgrain detailing, and engraved designs. Most of the rings in this style are only available in platinum or white gold. They’re designed to look like a family heirloom and have a more classic, traditional appearance.

 

 

Floral Bands: One of the more unique engagement rings of the year, bands carved with flower or leaf designs and embedded with diamonds or gemstones can be an eye-catching alternative to the traditional band. These intricately-detailed rings are much more ornate than a simple band with a diamond. Some are accented with pave diamonds while others feature micro diamonds and studded detailing. These can be ideal for those looking for a more feminine style and softer look.

 

Emerald Cut Engagement Rings: More of a classic style that continues to be a top trend year after year, emerald cut engagement rings have a very regal quality to them and the focal point falls right on the large diamond in the center of the ring. The angular style of emerald cut engagement rings are balanced with a single band studded with pave diamonds or two or three bands that support the large diamond in the center. You can stick with a gleaming white diamond for a more traditional look, or pick out sapphire engagement rings and other gemstones as the accent or focal point of this ring style.

Shoot Your Friends…No Really, Shoot Them!

15 Mar

If you like hunting or pretending to shoot things AND like to take photos, then you’ll love “Killshot”! It’s a rifle turned into an actual camera! According to their website:

The rifle scope with crosshairs serves as the camera lens which is able to zoom in on intended subject and date/time stamp the shot. The object of the invention is to allow for simulation of game hunting and provide for documentation of the hunt by photo or video…The actual still shot or video capturing function is “trigger” operated, simulating a lethal shot on an intended target. A USB port on the device enables the replica rifle to be charged or linked to a computer for downloading of pictures or videos.

Check out the photos below:

Worse Than Nude Stretch Pants…Mantyhose!

7 Mar

Oh goodness…this is bad…really bad!

Designer and hoisery retailer Emilio Cavallini is selling pantyhose for men. He claims ‘Manty-hose’ now account for 2 to 3% of his compamy’s annual sales. “When we started our online shop we noticed that a lot of tights sized medium-large were being purchased by men … So I did a search on the Internet and discovered there is a cult following for mantyhose.”

At first I pictured drag queens sporting nude control tops BUT after seeing photos of said mantyhose, I see it is for the more alternative guy! Reminds me of a guy named Eric I met at theater camp who wore colored tights under his holy and worn-in overalls…but I digress

Elope Dress!?

23 Feb

If you’re like me and LOVE Vegas and the idea of eloping and avoiding a wedding circus…then you’ll fall in love with the Elope Dress! The idea is such a no-brainer and a total win.

At just $170 this dress does it all: it’s white and feminine, short without being too short, easily customizeable, and has a touch of sass! It comes in a few different sizes but unfortunately not plus size (yet).

Alternate Uses for Bras!?

9 Feb
English: A white brassiere.

Image via Wikipedia

Occasionally women will find themselves with a bra they no longer have use for: it’s either too small, old and worn, or too big! So instead of throwing them out, here are some alternate uses for ‘em:

1. Slingshot: Since we’re all obsessed with Angry Birds, why not make a bra into a slingshot to play the game in real life? Perfect for snowball fights/water balloon fights/annoying your neighbors, etc.

2. Snack holder: I feel as though a C-cup might be the regular serving size for any type of snack food (don’t quote me on that). So the next time you’ve got the munchies, just pour some popcorn into the cups of your bra and much away!

3. Eyemask: If you’re like me, the sun is not your friend (especially when trying to get some sleep), when burying your head in a pillow becomes too suffocating, just throw a bra over your eyes and let the cups cover up those rays streaming through your window.

4. Artwork: Use your old bras you never wear anymore and make a piece of art out of it. They have weirder stuff on display at any contemporary art museum than this, so don’t feel like an amateur. You could be the next Pollack!

5. Earmuffs: It’s wintertime, so turn your bra into earmuffs! The weather these days is so unpredictable so next time you walk into class and it’s 50 degrees and walk out to a blizzard, just unclasp your bra and put it over your head to keep those ears warm!
