I love the idea for this iphone application for the iPhone. It is called Openness and encourages users to be open about new activities and explore new things. It is bases in the UK and is for those users that want to do new things, especially in the current friendly weather.
The mechanism is pretty straightforward. Select your location, decide how much open-minded you are and then shake to be surprised by MINI. You might end up with a recommendation for a Body Detox Clinic or if you luckier you could receive directions to a Mexican wrestling match with fetish cabaret. Whatever the hint, rest assured the experience will be definitely off-beat.
This is the kind of thing I say I’d always want to be able to have, but I always live in the wrong city. Now, I live in the right city , but don’t have the right phone.
Come on! It should be for everyone. Or just Blackberrys (I’m selfish. so what)
Here are a couple of links I’ve seen today and wanted to share. They’re not all worth their own post, but they’re worth a click.
- 14 ways to fake a good night’s sleep by allure
- The Queen’s expenses have risen because there aren’t enough planes in the Royal Airforce for the Royal Family’s Needs.
- What’s next? Shaving her head? I hope this isn’t a cycle.
- The transformation of the King of Pop
- He shouldn’t be allowed near those costumes. Coco is rolling over in her grave.
- Robert Pattison is grateful.
- Funny airport security story
- A quote on the Honduran coup shown to me by an Honduran:
- “Zelaya has provoked this institutional crisis. He seems to have a very strong appetite for power. He’s trying to be the victim, but he won’t get a lot of sympathy by defying the country’s institutions.” – Michael Shifter, a Latin America analyst at Washington’s Inter-American Dialogue
Enjoy the Links
Americans tend to be innovative (or in some cases claim they are), but this is far from new. Allure’s Daily Beauty Reporter mentioned delivery beauty treatments as if they were a completely unique and ingenious concept. Coming from the Dominican Republic, I beg to differ. You can have anything done at home: blowouts, manicures, pedicures and massages. Though Allure mentions this as a perfect service for elderly women that can’t get themselves to a beautiful salon, in Santo Domingo it’s used by women of all ages. In most cases it’s not more expensive than visiting your local beauty parlor and much more comfortable.

I’m a fan of this, and I know a lot of my friends are too. (Just ask my friend Moli)
Hopefully, the US will catch on to this pretty soon, but knowing US beauty prices it’s bound to be quite expensive.
This shoe spread for French Marie Claire is adorable. It’s a completely different take on the usual long legs and stilettos. Dogs add to the cute factor, but I can’t believe they let them chew on such stylish (and expensive) footwear. When my mom was arguing her points on why I shouldn’t get a puppy she should’ve just shown me these. I wouldn’t have been able to argue back
Here is the spread shot by Peter Lippman
I guess they should’ve fed them nutribalance
‘Mourning Objects’ by Anna Schwamborn is a line of concept jewelry that is made up of your deceased loved one’s hair or ashes.Besides pure hair being used, cremated human ashes are mixed with black bone china, the world´s highest class porcelain. In her own words:
Wearable body pieces including human material
The collection of objects contains post-mortem memorial pieces which include aspects of a deceased corpse, namely hair and cremated ashes.
She has worked for Alexander McQueen and Vivianne Westwood, but had definitely gone crazier than both.
I find these to be not only ugly, but also very creepy. They have an erie quality to them and I don’t think anybody I know would like to be immortilized into odd-looking jewelry. This macabre jewelry line is very depressing. Jewelry should make you smile (or drool a little.)
I don’t think even Morticia Adams would be caught dead in these.
The The Anonymous Hugging Wall is an installation by Keetra Dean Dixon that can be found in London. Sadly, the webpage doesn’t say where I can find it or how long it’s up for.
I’m sure you can’t help but smile when you walk by.
This idea gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘Recessionista.’ For those unemployed with a sense of humor comes these pins and t-shirt by the fellow unemployed Irina Blok who definitely found the bright side to her situation. She created these pins and a Resume Tshirt, my personal favorite for those of you desperate to get your next paycheck.
Check all of them out HERE.
She definitely knows how to laugh at herself and the world around her.
I’m not a huge Tim Burton fan or a huge Alice in Wonderland fan, but I do believe they’re bound to be a great match. I have to admit I did love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The set and characters he created were unique and interesting and the costumes were amazing. He managed to make a classic story a trippy and graphically impressing one. His work with Alice is bound to be impressive.
These are the new official promo release pictures. These photos prove that Burton’s new film will be a whole new trip down the rabbit hole.
and if you’re not a Burton fan. Who doesn’t love Johnny Depp?
