What Is Going On With This Performance By Mariah Carey?

I thought I was going to have to stop watching this in the middle, but I had to continue for the train wreck. The above version is without the music and below with the music. Wow.

The Atlantic Profiles Treehouses

When I was a kid, all I ever wanted was a treehouse. I mean, what kid didn’t want that? I remember sitting at my dining table during  meals and asking my Dad why we couldn’t just turn the two large trees in our backyard into a treehouse.

“They don’t both have to be tree houses, just one would be okay.”

Looking back on that idea now, I realized that it wouldn’t be feasible at all to have those trees be turned into treehouses. I’m pretty sure they don’t have the strength, but it was a nice thought back then. I really enjoyed watching this video from The Atlantic though about adult treehouses. They seem to do pretty well on AirBnB and there’s even an area in Washington that houses many different treehouses that you can visit and trek through that I’m still hoping to see someday. Personally, I think I would need a lot more space to stay in one. The second one profiled in this video seemed the most appealing to me, but the third one would be quite difficult.

Girl Scout Cookies via The Internet

The Girl Scouts are getting it in with technology and have announced that this upcoming cookie season, cookies will now be available to purchase online. While frequent buyers are probably really excited to learn about this, a few of us (myself included) are wondering what took so long. I suppose it’s part of what makes the brand so great though. Buyers love knowing that there’s an actual “cookie” season and that we can buy from local troops outside of our neighborhood grocery stores or near our workplaces. This next year, troops will still be doing that, but adding the internet component. Announced on Monday, Digital Cookie is an online platform that will support the selling of the cookies, but will not be an online store. What does that mean exactly?

Well, the Girl Scouts will still need to initiate every sale.

Girl Scouts can reach out to people by email, and only that recipient can access the girl’s profile. If the email is forwarded, the link to the Girl Scout’s profile will be broken, a Girl Scouts representative told Mashable.

The reason behind this is ultimately for the girls’ safety. All sensitive information about the individual Girl Scouts are kept hidden and most of the interactions with the digital platform are overseen by their parents. Through this, the organization is hoping that their Girl Scouts will learn the following skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Additionaly, they also have a chance to be exposed to working with apps and test their skills in online marketing.

Kendall’s Burn Book

Kendall really is on her way to becoming one of my favorite up-and-coming models and I’m not the only one that thinks so either. She’s nabbing covers left and right and while some may seem to think that the Kardashian connection is hurting her, I think it’s doing the opposite. Since Keeping Up With The Kardashians started, we’ve been able to see Kendall grow up right before our eyes. She’s funny. She has a personality. And she’s human especially when we caught her in that episode where she felt completely left out on her family trip. Oh Kendall, yes, we’ve been there and we totally understand those feels! I kind of like this cheeky play on the Burn Book from Mean Girls.

Cinderella (2015)

Since the trailer for Disney’s newest version of Cinderella was just released today, there was no way we weren’t going to post it to Yow Yow! It’s definitely not anything like what I watched as a kid. I know the quality of that was pretty bad and it was completely old school, but I’ll always hold that version near and dear to my heart. I will most likely still end up watching this one in theaters though as I know a lot of my friends will be too.

A Giant Birdsnest

I first saw these pieces maybe a couple of years ago on the internet and now it looks like they are being brought back! The giant birdsnest for human looks like the ultimate comfy, but when I envision my future home, I just don’t know if there would ever be a place for it. It does look like it takes up a lot of space, doesn’t it?

The gigantic, cozy nest is made from a foam-padded wooden backwall that’s covered with wooden panels and filled with egg-shaped cushions that allow for ergonomic sitting positions. Designed by the Israel-based design firm OGE Creative Group, the Birdsnest is a “new and inspiring socializing space: a fusion of furniture and playground” where ideas come to get incubated.

The birdsnest is available in four different sizes and range from 2,700 – 7,900 Euros. The largest birdsnest can accommodate up to 16 people! While it may not be the perfect fit for my home, I would strongly advocate it for a friend’s home or even my office.

Wedding Mondays

Happy Wedding Monday readers! It has been over a month since we last had one of these, but I knew today that I would be returning with a really great and unique video to share with all of you. My coworker Yelly actually sent this over to me while we were traveling together a few weeks ago in Phoenix for work and I haven’t had the time to post it until now, but I never closed it from my tab. Brian and Mandy from Wyoming love to go out on these grand adventures together so to tie the knot, they decided to hike all the way up to the summit of Pingora Peak.

…the couple and their friend/minister Jamie O’Donnell woke up around 5 am on August 28th, biked 14 miles to the Cirque of the Towers trailhead in Wyoming’s Wind River Range, then embarked on a 24-mile (one-way) hike to 11,884-foot Pingora Peak, where they scaled 9 pitches and 1,200 feet of the northeast face before finally (!) tying the knot on the summit.

I thought the whole video was actually pretty incredible and adorable to watch. It meant a lot to me too that Yelly was able to share this with me and that I could pass it on to all of you!

What Is On Netflix

I’ve got a love/hate relationship with Netflix. While I’m overjoyed that Netflix allows me to stream movies when I want and provides me with great entertainment for the weekend, I become frustrated when I can’t even figure out which movies I want to watch. The scrolling capabilities can only take you so far. If I happen to somehow come up with a movie I want to watch, it’s likely that it isn’t available. So Netflix, you don’t have to expand your library – I can see that you’re being generous already, but please, won’t you please, let us see what is in you a little bit more?

I ran into this exact problem last night. Sometimes, I just want to give up, but luckily today I discovered “What is on Netflix?” I see that other people were having the same problem as me. With this website updated weekly you can see the top rated movies from both IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes that are streamable on Netflix.

It’s all we ever wanted. Netflix, take note. Are you seeing this?

Happy November Y’all!

Happy start of November everyone! I hope all of you had a very fun, but safe Halloween last night. I debated for weeks about what I wanted to be for Halloween this year… a loofah, a cupcake, Boo from Monsters Inc. and Ariana Grande. Eventually though, I decided to pick my favorite sassy emoji! It was such an easy costume to make, but I can’t take all the credit for it. I definitely had some help making my text bubble. All in all, it took about 45 minutes, but really it just came down to cutting and pasting. The shirt was borrowed from my mom a very long time ago and I never ended up giving it back so… uh… it’s mine now.

And of course Halloween costumes are more fun when your friends join in…
