Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip - What Megans Making - StumbleUpon Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip It’s time for a little confession. I realize this may get me shunned (especially in my hometown of Pittsburgh!), but….I don’t like football. I don’t like to watch it, I never liked playing football with my friends, I don’t even like playing catch with a football. I saw this recipe on Jessica’s blog and made it the very next day. *Note: Jessica also has variations of this dip on her blog. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip Ingredients:1/2 cup butter 1/3 cup brown sugar 1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened 3/4 to 1 cup powdered sugar (*to taste) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips, plus extra for sprinklingDirections:In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
...love Maegan: * Partial French Braid & Cascading Hair Tutorial *also known as the "Waterfall Braid" Fashion+Home+Lifestyle Blog I’m not the originator of this hair style but I’ve gotten so many requests for it, I thought I’d give it a go for you. I don’t know what it’s called either so I haven’t researched it and/or found any other tutorials for it …thus, this is my version of it, and I’ve dubbed it the Partial French Braid w/ Cascading Hair. The photos I’ve seen online show the braid a little more straight across the back of the head and mine sort of braids at an angle, similar to my side/low french braid up-do. I’m sure this is 100% easier to do on someone else’s hair than your own but it goes pretty quickly once you get the hang of it …I mean, it’s my shortest hair video tutorial to date. That’s gotta mean something, right Enjoy. Note: Apologies in advance for the yelling of “NOOOO” towards the end, where I momentarily fear I’m going to lose my entire braid and have to start over. Have Fun! Find all my Hair Tutorials Here.
Iso-Tones - About Iso-Tones.com Since 2008 my vision has been to provide people all over the world with quality brainwave entrainment sessions free-of-charge. Any of these tones can be listened to on your computer, Smartphone, MP3 player or CD player. You do not need headphones for these to work, but I have found them to be useful at blocking out surrounding noise. All isochronic tones are made with Neuro Programmer 2 and for many of the earlier tones I used the guide from as a reference, in addition to studies available through PubMed and Transparent Corporation. Brainwave entrainment allows me to combine my interests in physics, neuroscience, psychology, music, spiritualism and art. In making each session I aim for a balance between effective entrainment and an experience that is aesthetically pleasing.

Inspired Entertaining: DIY Chalkboard Wine Glasses Last month I got an email from one of those "deal of the day" websites featuring a very cute set of wine glasses with chalkboard stems from a company called Chalkboard China. I've seen chalkboard glasses before, and always thought them to be a fun and chic way for guests to keep track of their glass throughout the night so you don't end up with mixed-up glasses or dozens of half-full glasses left around the house. But all the ones I've seen in stores feature a strip of chalkboard paint across the bowl of the glass, which I've always felt looks awkward and takes away from the beauty of the wine or beverage in the glass. What I like about this version is that the writing part is at the bottom on the stem and foot of the glass, so it doesn't compete with the beverage. I also like that the simple black foot on the glass is in itself an elegant design element, and would work just as well with no writing on it. So I figured, "I can totally make that myself!" Materials 1. 2. 3. Method Step 1.
How To: DIY Leopard Print Nails | Beaut.ie Flipping through the September issues of the magazines this year, a feeling of déjà vu has been creeping over me. Hot as the hob of hell for Autumn/Winter 2010 fashion: kitten heels. Pointy toed shoes. Capes. Flared – or at the very least, bootcut – trousers. Anyway, one of the other key trends of the season is Bet Lynch’s favourite print, and since even YSL has tipped the nod to a bit of nail art with Manucure Couture, it looks like AW10′s the time to work a bit of animal magic on your fingertips. No special brushes or pens or other nail art accoutrements? three bottles of nail varnish (a base colour, at least one contrasting colour for the centre of the leopard spots, and a black polish to define their edges);a bit of time; anda reasonably steady hand. Simples! Begin prepping your nails by removing any old nail varnish and filing them into your desired shape. Daub on your spots! It’s time to define the edges with your black nail varnish. Bet Lynch, eat your heart out!
The Founder of FedEx Once Saved the Company by Taking Its Last $5,000 and Turning It Into $32,000 by Gambling in Vegas Today I Found Out the founder of FedEx once saved the company by taking its last $5,000 and turning it into $32,000 by gambling in Las Vegas. The man is Frederick W. Smith who is the founder and current CEO of FedEx. In 1971, Smith took his personal fortune of around $4 million and raised around an additional $90 million to found a delivery company structured such that it could potentially deliver packages overnight to anywhere in the world. This is something that, at that time, had never been done. Smith had first outlined how such a company would operate in a 1962 paper he wrote while at Yale University. Unfortunately, three years after the company began, thanks largely to rapidly rising fuel costs, Federal Express was on the verge of bankruptcy, losing over $1 million a month, with no one willing to give them any additional loans nor any investors interested in contributing capital. It turns out, a few days more was all he needed. Bonus Facts: Expand for References:

TIPPED OUT - thebeautydepartment.com all photos: Kristin Ess + thebeautydepartment.com post designed by kristin ess Lots of emails this week asking for a tutorial on Lauren’s temporary bright colors. Here I’ve replicated the process for you in 7 steps on an extension. While I never recommend bleaching out the ends of your hair at home, if you want to do the fun colors yourself, maybe get the tips bleached out by a pro + then play with the temporary colors on your own. TOOLS: highlighting comb, clips, foils, color brush, hair bleach with the appropriate volume (always seek a professional when using bleach), light pink color, dark pink color, light blue, dark blue, clear gloss. Step 1 Highlight the tips of the hair using hair bleach with the correct volume. Step 2 Fold up your foil and let it process until it reaches a pale blonde. Step 3 Shampoo and lightly condition bleach out of the hair. Step 4 Blow hair completely dry. Step 5 Place the hair on a foil. XX Kristin Ess Related posts:
The Best Late Night Cafes in Toronto The best late night cafes in Toronto offer a tranquil alternative to a typical bar night with friends, and a comfortable space to get some work done in the evening. I always appreciate the option of going to a space near guaranteed to be void of any hair-gel/emblem-chain outfit combination, as well as one where music is complementary to, and not overshadowing, conversation. These cafes also serve as optimal environments for late-night studying, or in my case, blogging. That means comfortable chairs, a cozy atmosphere, great caffeine options, and tasty treats. And free WiFi is always an added bonus. Here is the list of the best late night cafes in Toronto.
