Butter! Better!

Butter! Better! is a new package that lets you use butter for just a single time use. I am someone that needs to stick to exact measurement because if I don’t, I’m worried that I’ll ruin a recipe. I stay very close to the increments on the stick and when I have to use just a little bit to spread on my toast I immediately become off on the increments. Now, with Butter! Better! I don’t ever have to worry about using the stick because I can use this product.

It’s even perfect because you can take it to go! The lid also acts as a spoon to spread the butter. You can’t get more efficient than this. Thank you Yeongkeun Jeong for designing such a fantastic product.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eKnSGn914M&feature=player_embedded]

On Halloween, you get to be whoever you want for one night. This year, you can be a different person for three nights. I kind of wish I could be this girl…for Halloween of course.

*****

ALSO can we talk about how this even exists?!

The event has already passed, but the details are lolz.

What defines the modern-day hipster?

Why is “hipster” a dirty word?

How many hipsters does it take to screw in a light bulb?

-It’s a really obscure number, and you probably haven’t heard of it…

-That joke is SO 2009.

Join us as we attempt to address these questions and more in an open forum discussion on the cultural impact of the hipster.

Halloween’s Worst Treats

When I was a young girl celebrating Halloween, I had a little case of OCD. My general rule for Halloween treats is to dispose of any candy that is partially opened and any candy that I’ve never heard of before. Then I would sort out the “types” of candy by chocolate, randos, Wonka, etc for no reason at all.  At most, I would eat my stash of candy for a week tops. I had convinced myself that candy became gross after awhile and that I preferred to buy my own candy rather than eating stranger’s candy.

Anyways, I wanted to re-live my nostalgia for a second. I just read a fantastic post about the 25 worst Halloween candies. They really are that bad.

But first, here are my favorite Halloween candies!

And now…the bad

Gaga’s Bow

Last year I so badly wanted to be Lady Gaga or Hello Kitty for Halloween, but I just couldn’t figure out how to form my hair into the bow seen above. I watched tutorial videos and read instructions on blogs. After multiple attempts, I put the idea to rest.

ASOS has developed the Hersheson bow for failures like myself. The bow is a clip-on that comes in six different colors for normal hair types: blonde, black, brown, etc, but they’ve even thrown in a hot pink!

The bow would be a fantastic addition to a Halloween costume. Feel free to purchase here for $44.82
