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.

Nail Designs Yaaaay! I got the polishes from the Essence Metallics collection! OMG, OMG!! Why are they so special? Four of them are magnetic! The only thing I have to criticize is the Essence magnet :/ It’s sucks! I’ve done all the swaches of the magnetic polishes with Alessandro magnet Copper Rulez! Iron Goddess: here you can see the difference between Alessandro and the Essence magnet. Metal Battle: this is the only polish in the collection that is not magnetic. Nothing Else Metals: is some kind of washed out golden olive color with silver highlights when you apply the magnet pattern. Steel Me: this polish is a lot thicker than the others in the collection. My boyfriend had a suggestion to try with these polishes – the Buckyballs (little magnets). It looks like some kind of grid or snake/alligator skin. In the Metallics collection there are also lipsticks and jumbo eye pencils. And here are the swaches of the jumbo eye pencils: What do you think about this collection? Have a nice time!

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 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.

Why not try it out on your nails instead? You can keep it simple within the same color family or go bold and crazy—whatever suits your mood! Step 1: Get Your Supplies Together To start, make sure you have all of your supplies handy. Step 2: Paint a Base Color Start with your favorite basecoat and paint your nails the base color. Step 3: Start Taping Next, pull off a small piece of Scotch tape (you won’t need more than an inch at a time) and put it against your hand and pull it off several times until most of the stickiness is gone. Once your base layer is dry, it’s time to start the colorblocking. Step 4: Apply the Second Color Carefully paint your nail so the exposed part is your second color and make sure to paint over the tape so you have clean lines. Step 5:Remove Tape to Reveal Precise Triangles Wait about thirty seconds after you paint over the tape and carefully pull the tape up to reveal a clean little triangle! Step 6: Marvel at Your Work Step 7: Tape (Again) and Paint (Again)

How To: DIY Leopard Print Nails | 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:
