When it’s the middle of winter, I like to throw all of my fresh-out-of-the-dryer clothes onto my bed and cocoon myself in its warmth. This cat found the best way to keep warm: stick your head on popcorn. If only Tina Fey saw this video before 30 Rock ended. I’m sure Liz Lemon would’ve dunked her head in a warm bowl of popcorn too.
When it comes to fashion, there are always new and wacky ideas coming out, but this one might just be brilliant: a jacket made up of sewn together Ziploc bags.
Just for the convenience alone, this is a pretty awesome idea. Think about how much more room you can get out of your bag by not having to keep your lunch and snacks in there. You could wear another jacket on top and sneak in your own snacks into a movie theater. Or make it a bit longer and you got yourself a great raincoat to keep you dry. My one concern would be zipping it up. Would you use the Ziploc bags with double zipper to make closing your jacket easier? What if you accidentally sewed the bag upside down? Then everything will come spilling out! AH! NO! NOT MY PRECIOUS M&M’S!
Either way it looks cool and is pretty darn inventive.
They may not be super sultry and sexy, but these new ad shots for Haggan Dazs involves two things I love- ice cream and Bradley Cooper. And although they may not be super sexy and alluring, in my opinion, the 38-year old gets the job done.
Now I’m not saying that I have a major thing for the blue-eyed dreamboat but I did have a weird urge to head out and buy some ice cream after seeing these photos from his latest shoot as the new face of Häagan Dazs. The photos show Bradley all dapper in a suit sitting on a couch eating a tub of the creamy frozen goodness all while a beautiful woman sits beside him who Bradley just doesn’t seem to care too much about really. Instead he puts on a smile that says, “I got my Häagan Dazs. I’m good.” Understandable, because HE’S THE FACE OF ICE CREAM.
COOPER. YOUR JOB? HOW DID YOU GET IT? By being good looking? Okay, but there’s no possible way you’ll be eating all that ice cream. Can you send some to me?
What do you think of Bradley Cooper as the face of Haagen Dazs?
Calling all you foodies: there’s been a change in trend, and you’re going to want to listen up to hear the big changes in dessert trends that Toronto has recently seen.
Gourmet and decorative cupcakes have came and gone. But while the gourmet cupcake’s novelty has worn off, and can almost be considered passé, another desert food has risen to the occasion: donuts.
Gourmet donut shops like Toronto’s Glory Hole have popped in and around the city to great reception. Some of hole-in-the-wall places have put their own personal spin on donuts. Pauline’s Donuts and Chicken has brought in another food group to compliment the dessert. Chicken and donuts? Not so sure about this – but hey, don’t knock it until you try it.
Instead of a trip to Cupcakes and Co. in your attempt to be everyone’s favourite person, try stopping by (or ordering – because imagine the lines in these places) a dozen donuts. Your friends love you, but lets be honest: they invite you for your company, but they’ll keep you for those donuts.
Now, you don’t have to settle for standard Tim Hortons donuts. If you visit one of the places, every donut will be a new experience:

The folks at Triangle Tree are hoping to save you from some alone time with your dirty dishes with their edible spoons.
With their edible spoons, the company hopes to essentially lessen the use and impact of plastic spoons that don’t get disposed of properly and which can leave lasting negative impacts on the environment.
I don’t know, I’m all for helping the environment but when it comes down to it, I wonder if these spoons taste good. Would they alter the taste of my meals? And what if I need a fork and knife? Couldn’t I just pack a regular spoon in my lunch box? It’s not like plastic spoons are mandatory to use just because you’re eating outside of home.
They also look like dog treats but that’s just me.
Have you ever found yourself playing your favourite video game and just as you’re finally getting the good parts, you’re being interrupted by your hunger? Well fret no more because Pizza Hut has an app for that.
Launching today in North America, the new Xbox 360 app offers gamers the option of ordering and customizing their pizza directly from their console. But just in case pizza isn’t your thing, you can also order form their pasta, breadsticks and wings menu. The app even lets you post and share your pizza on Facebook because apparently, Instagram-ing your last meal wasn’t enough.
I don’t know, call me old-fashioned but I think phoning in to order is best. You’re sitting playing video games any way, so those few minutes you spend away from your television to order some food can’t hurt.
Food Network star Guy Fieri is Jabo0odyDubs‘ latest victim. If you thought their Billy Mays videos were hilarious, just wait until you’ve seen Guy Fieri getting dubbed over. It’s just brilliant. *wipes tear from eye*
Apparently, this is what Taco Bell does to you. But instead of being chained to a toilet all night because your soft taco supreme tasted a little off, you begin to harbour some weird gymnastic like powers. Kind of weird, but we dig it.

Asides from buying cheese blocks the size of your head for relatively dirt cheap (okay, I’m exaggerating about the size of the cheese) and the abundance of free samples, having to peruse items that only come in JUMBO size in a warehouse is a depressing concept. There are no boyfriend chairs to sit on as you wait for you significant other to debate the merits of buying the 30 pack of batteries versus the 40 pack, and the only feeling you will get after you consume their poutine is regret. But if you’re going to spend an hour or two in a Costco on your much valued weekend time, you might as well have fun, right? Here are 5 inappropriate things to do at Costco that’ll help you kill some time.
1. Strategically pose some stuffed animals
Because you know that some parent out there will have to explain the Birds and the Bees to their kids that day.
2. Change a sign
Is it wrong if it’s accurate?
3. Do some strategic product placement
If you know someone who works at Costco and has a fork lift license, why wouldn’t you?
4. More clever stuffed toy placement
This is what camping is all about, right?
5. Have a Costco hotdog eating contest with another bored patron
They’re 1.50 EACH!
Or you can just try to find a comfy display to sleep in to try and pass the time.
What I love about this weekend (besides getting extra days off. Woo for holidays!) is the amount of holiday chocolate available. Being a university student, I spend a lot of my study time just eating whatever is available, so I’m pumped that there’s more variety of chocolate all thanks to Easter. Plus, it brings back memories of when relatives would dump them by the bucketload into my small child arms. I’ve taken the liberty of breaking down the four best Easter treats to show what people think they’re eating.
Apparently, cooking eggs is a messy task. The eggs, stick to the pan, they flop when you try to flip them and the yolks drip. Oh, the horror! Luckily, we have another stupid cooking tool to keep our kitchens free of eggy mess. Enter the Rollie Eggmaster!
The Rollie Eggmaster claims to cook your eggs to perfection. They’ll also make your eggs look like tampons as you pull them out of the device! Mmmm… Yum! And if you order now, you’ll get your very own knock-off Slap Chop! What more can anyone ask for?
If you’re going to follow anyone on Vine these days, make sure its former MADtv star Will Sasso.
Sasso is obviously a funny man and is probably one of the few people who can use Vine to their full advantage. I mean, have you seen Vine Peek? Nine out of ten videos are bored teenagers filming themselves in the cafeteria (we already know what bad cafeteria food looks like so please, get off my internet).
Anyways, Sasso has an ongoing lemon sight gag that only he could make enjoyable. Thankfully, some genius put them all together for our amusement.

With Easter just around the corner, the stress of having to figure out how to impress family and friends with your cooking skills can be overwhelming. We’ve all been there as we worried about the time, money and effort it would take to finally pry that “that looks delicious!” compliment from your least favourite relative or frenemy. But what do you do when your cooking skills are lackluster or worse, non-existent?
Here are five tips that will surely impress those so-called foodies in your life.
1. Just add parsley
BAM! Instantly fancy.
2. Turn simple bread rolls into cute bunnies
… or pikachu if they don’t turn out right
Depending how you look at it, vending machines are either really amazing or the bane of your exist. They’re amazing because they pretty much hold the answer to your hunger/junk food craving dilemmas, but they’re the worst when you don’t have any change in your pockets to purchase those oh so sweet delights.
It would be much easier to remember to carry some cash on me if these vending machines sold the following in our hoods (they exist but not near me):
2. Nail Polish
It’s March 14th! Happy 3.14 day! Otherwise known as PI DAY!
So for all the people who are hopeless with math, think of today as the day to stuff with your face with as many kinds of pie you can find. Om nom nom nom! There’s ….
Just when I thought I was okay with how the world was turning out, comedian Adam Newman just had to tweet this question and make me lose faith in humanity.
Just to let you know, if you’re ever asked what do you hate more: cauliflower or racism, cauliflower is not the answer. Those guys who replied were probably just joking (ha ha ha) but in real life, and I repeat, cauliflower is not the answer.
Get it? Got it? Good.
There is something to be said about sitting down with a big mug of coffee, tea, or any warm drink of your choice as it’s one of the best, most comforting feelings known to man kind.
I remember in high school when I would sit down to study or do homework I would make myself a big cup of tea or coffee to get myself calmed down and ready to be productive. It always did the trick and kept me focused and free of panic.
A mug can be sacred to a person who finds serenity in sitting down with a hot drink. For this reason, everybody should have a go-to one that is representative of their personality. It makes the experience that much more serene.
The world (and internet) is plentiful with unique mugs. I’m sure you can can even get your own made if you really wanted to. Your own mug can become your staple, also it will prevent anyone else in your family from using it if you have a one that is distinctly yours.
For me personally, I think I would invest in a big mug with Time Square on it or a quote about dreaming big. Yes, you just got the ultimate insight on who I am as a person which is my point: your mug should encompass who you are or at least a small fraction of you reflected on it.
Here are some suggestions of cool mugs to suit your unique characteristics

To add to the list of totally unnecessary kitchen appliances taking up space in your cupboards, they are bringing you the breakfast sandwich maker. Just pile in the ingredients and wait approximately 4 minutes and voila! Another way to justify your laziness.
Did I mention it’s $30 dollars? It’s totally not worth it, but I totally want it.
