Pineberries

I’m not easily surprised when it comes to food, but these not only caught my eye, but also had me wondering if I had missed something all my life. Before you try to check your memory to see if you’ve ever seen these let me help you out. The odds are that no, you haven’t.

These strawberry-like berries were “re-launched” by Waitrose last April after near extension

According to the Guardian‘s review from last year they’re not all that great, but I still think they’re cute.

I’m curious and would love to try them, even if they’re supposed to taste like watered down pineapples. I’d love to know if I could get my hand on these in the US.

Found them here.

Tuxedo

I’ve always liked women in menswear. It’s a sure hit when going for comfy casual any season, but I’ve never been a fan of how it tends to look for women as formal-wear. In my opinion, it mostly looks forced, but I definitely have to give credit where credit is due and say that all the looks that Anja Rubik wore for this May 2011 Vogue Paris editorial are impeccable. Everything from the styling, to the makeup to the tailored fit of the suits makes for a stylish and feminine girl out on the town.

UP

I adored the movie Up. It was cute, quirky and sweet, but most of all I thought it was adorably idealistic and romantic. A house could never fly so high. Boy was I wrong.

The National Geographic team for the new show “How Hard Can It Be” decided to try it out, after all, Carl made it seem pretty easy in the movie.

Check out this video for a how/why/when/where they did it, and to see a house fly. Pretty impressive, and I’m not always easily amused.

I’m all for creativity when it comes to events, but a McDonald’s wedding is definitely pushing it. McDonald’s outlets in Hong Kong are now offering “McWeddings.”

The complete  package, launched in January, includes pink invitation cards emblazoned with golden arches, McDonald’s food, wedding gifts and decor featuring the Hamburglar and Ronald McDonald, all for 9,999 Hong Kong dollars ($1,270). Couples can also shell out extra to rent a “white balloon” gown or purchase a balloon corsage and balloon wedding cake.

On Valentine’s Day, a man threw a surprise engagement party for his girlfriend at a McDonald’s offering weddings and other formal events. The “cake” was a stack of apple pies, and the couple received a pair of commemorative crystal M rings. It was the first formal booking, but McDonald’s said two wedding parties are confirmed for this year and 70 other couples are in talks.

Just in case you think I’m making this up, check out the promotional pictures below.

For Your Un-Valentine

Imagine this. It’s Valentine’s Day. You get a fancy looking box just the right size for flowers. You wonder who it’s from. You sigh. You pull the ribbon. You slowly open the box (ok, who am I kidding, you quickly open the box). They’re dead. Each and every one of the flowers is dead. This must be a mistake. Right? Nop. It’s not.

It’s Dirty Rotten Flowers‘ doing. They actually offer the service of sending people you dislike, well hate, dead flowers. Check out the pictures below.

Vera Wang for David’s Bridal

Being on a recent college grad’s budget, I’m all for fashion for the masses. Designer collaborations make me giddy with their over-promises and attainable prices (as you can see here) . This one has no reason to make me excited personally, but I’m still happy for all those brides-to-be that, even on a limited budget, will be able to avoid tacky hideousness and go for a little Vera instead.

Enjoy the surprisingly pretty dresses below.
