Coolest Events Around The World
Here are the most bizarre/amazing events around the the world that you are missing out on every year by not exploring. This is motivation for you to go out and see what else is out in the world!

Harry Potter 7.1: The Drinking Game | FM Though it may be hard to believe, it’s already been nine years since Potter-heads around the world were introduced to the silver-screen personalities of Harry, Ron, and Hermione in the movie “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” Maybe it seems kind of creepy that we’ve been watching them grow up right before our eyes (oh hey, Emma Watson), but we’ve been growing up right alongside them, and now it’s time to celebrate the bittersweet—but still triumphant —beginning-of-the-end. FM thought of no better way to celebrate than to grab our friends and a mug of our favorite wizarding libation (toss-up butterbeer or firewhiskey) and get in touch with our inner spell-caster as we watched “The Deathly Hallows: Part 1.” —Whenever somebody casts a spell, take a sip (take a gulp if Hermione casts it). —If you hear the full name “Harry Potter,” take a sip (two if the person saying “Harry Potter” sounds particularly surprised or confounded). —If somebody casts “Avada Kedavra,” kill your drink.

you knew i was going to make one. they are all over pinterest....(i still am not signed up for pinterest because i don't have time for one more thing but browsing is fun!) so we made one. i took a box of 64 crayons and took out the blacks and browns.i used another small box and doubled up on the good colors i liked and hot glued them to the top of our canvas. then we turned our blow dryer to hot on high. not long after you set the hair dryer by the crayons they get shiny and then the wax starts to melt! and it dries really quickly too. seriously. what could be happier than this??

The Webtender: Drinking Games. Have fun with The Webtender's collection of drinking games, but be extremely careful if you play any these games, especially the ones with high buzz factors. The collection was created as an aid to responsible adults who know their limits (and not to cross them) when it comes to drinking, and not to promote this kind of drinking behavior. You should of course be of legal drinking age if you want to play these games with beer or drinks, but anyone can play these games with non-alcoholic beverages as well.

say YES! to hoboken: DIY: Tinted Mason Jars in Rainbow I’ve been experimenting with tinting mason jars to create a look like those old vintage ones that are difficult to find anymore in second hand stores. I think I’ve finally honed in on the perfect method. Would you like to see how it’s done? Check out the DIY here. Fill them with flowers, or illuminate an outdoor party filling them with battery operated tea lights or a strand of twinkle lights. copyright 2014 liz stanley // all rights reserved The 16 Reasons You Need To Drop Everything And Travel Right Now There’s a characteristic of our generation that can only be described as severe restlessness. I am not specifically referring to the number of friends you have who are prescribed Adderall; although that’s definitely another cultural trend I could discuss in length. What I’m talking about is a restlessness of the soul, the wandering spirit, a culture of nomads. We’ve been bred on this notion that we are going to do it differently than our parents; we’ll be adventurous, experience life to the fullest. We’ve sat over lunch with our friends choosing our post-graduation plans, always teetering over the line of what we knew as the safe choice and what we knew as the adventurous, spirited one. We talked about living in Brazil in a house by the beach, spending days on the hammock and driving taxis at night. We thought about moving to London, buying expensive rain gear and renting a studio on Piccadilly Circus. You’re young You’re more willing to take risks With less to lose, there’s more to gain.
