When I own an oven again, these are getting made SO HARD.
If this isn’t a beautiful idea, then I don’t know what is.
I always wanted this scene to be longer.
Am I crazy late to this party? Does everyone already know about this site? Or sites like this? 'Cause this is the first one that's given me actually good recommendations so far. (I was a little peeved that my Martin Short search came up with nothing because my "search edition doesn't appear in many users' booklists" - what kind of losers aren't including that in their goddam booklists?! Anyway.) Check if out if you can't think of what to read next.
"The Bios Urn is 100% biodegradable, made of coconut shell, compacted peat, and cellulose. It has two parts — a top capsule for the seed, and a bottom part for the ashes. This structure allows the seed to germinate separated from the ashes and their high acidity. Once the urn starts to biodegrade, the seed roots are already strong enough to contact them and the entire set becomes part of the sub-soil.
The urn is manufactured both for people and for pets; it can be used with ash saved from another urn, and it doesn’t expire. So far, the studio has distributed the urn to more than 7,000 people worldwide. When ordering, the customers can pick the type of seed they would like — oak, maple, pine, gingko, beech, ash, or choose to get an urn without a seed in order to use their own. Either way, the cost is $145 plus shipping."
My favourite part? You can choose what kind of tree! Imagine seeing forests instead of graveyards? Isn't that a crazy better idea? Also, is it just me or is it way more comforting (and the opposite of sad) to visit someone in the woods than in a cemetery? THIS IS THE BEST IDEA EVER.
In celebration of its final season, there's going to be a Mad Men exhibit (in Astoria!) at the Moving Image Museum (and running from March 14th until June 14th).
The exhibit will feature large-scale sets (including Don Draper’s office and the Draper Kitchen), some of the crazy-memorable costumes (all I'm thinking of is that one red dress), hundreds of props, advertising art, video clips, and personal notes and research material from Matthew Weiner (the show's creator).
I'm pretty excited to see this - it's such a great idea to do alongside the last season. Now if they could just get started on a new Banana Republic jewelry line, I'd be over the moon.
It's pretty weather proof and won't run on you in the rain or snow or anything - it'll even stay on and not smudge off if you decide to not take it off with the rest of your makeup at the end of a day. I've done that a few times. Goddam it, I just love having fuller eyebrows. Did you know that the number one facial cosmetic procedure among women in NYC this year was eyebrow restoration? So funny that that's a thing now.
In any case, this Milani pencil is magic and you can get it at basically any CVS in New York. It ranges from $7 - $10, which is pretty decent, too.
