Many of us hear from our parents and grandparents we’re maybe part German or 1/8 Native American with a little Irish or North African, but how can we be sure? Now you can, and it costs under $100! With the recent dramatic price decreases of autosomal DNA testing, these can be a fantastic out-of-the box […]

Gift idea: The Modern Mix tape

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

To me, the idea of a mixtape conjures up memories of high school, handwritten notes and bad cafeteria food. While mixtapes kind of lost their swagger when iPods became the norm, it’s no less meaningful to hand-craft a playlist full of songs that remind you of the recipient. It’s a thoughtful and personal gift, and […]

Give Away: Brian the Cat

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

There is no love lost between me and my husband’s cat, Brian. I’m not sure what put me over the edge with Brian, it could have been the time he clawed my less than two week old leather sofas, the times he’s played kitty olympics on my head while trying to sleep or the copious […]

Dollars: Birthday brought to you by a Daily Deals website

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

Roundup: Is pie the new cupcake?

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

I’ve been hearing lately that pie could overtake cupcakes as the […]
