DIY Dolce & Gabbana Pasta Earrings

Leave it to Dolce & Gabbana to express their huge appetite for life (and Italy) with their Spring 2012 Collection. Dresses printed with eggplants, tomatoes and hot peppers sauntered down the runway, Sophia Loren was heard singing the ever-so-cliché ”Mambo Italiano” and . . . WTF?! Pasta earrings and accessories!? What a molto bene DIY! With just a quick trip to the supermarket and bead store, these kitschy but totally fun pasta earrings are a cinch to make. You’ll need: The first step is to drill holes into the pasta. Start assembling from the top by adding 3 jump rings to the bottom of the first charm. Thread the pin through the top of the pasta. To create a wire wrapped loop, cinch the pliers at the base of the bead. Using wire cutters, trim away any extra wire. Connect the charms in any pattern or sequence using jump rings. An optional step is to glue little black beads to the middle of the charms. Repeat the steps for the 2nd earring and your pair is finished!

DIY Satsuma Candle A friend of mine DIYed her own candles, made from the peels of Satsuma oranges, for a recent dinner party. I was so excited by this simple yet clever idea, I had to share the tutorial on HonestlyWTF. My only regret is not discovering this sooner when Satsumas were at their absolute peak in December. Hopefully, you’ll still be able to snatch up a few at your local grocery store or farmer’s market and impress your guests at your next dinner party! The stem side of the Satsuma will be the bottom and base of the candle.

Documentaries About Latin America "We are seeing how very important it is to bring about in the human mind the radical revolution. The crisis is a crisis in consciousness. A crisis that cannot anymore accept the old norms, the old patterns, the ancient traditions, and considering what the world is now with all the misery, conflict, destructive brutality, aggression, and so on, man is still as he was, is still brutal, violent, aggressive, acquisitive, competitive, and he has built a society along these lines." –Jiddu Krishnamurti The Zeitgeist Movement is not a political movement.

02/01/2009 - 02/08/2009 there was still no power. Another cold front is moving through and it's now a balmy 23 degrees outside. I sometimes wonder if the rest of these United States has any idea how big of a disaster this is. The only media I have access to is the internet and it sure doesn't seem like Obama has said much. And I definitely haven't seen the likes of Fox News or Keith Olberman running around. Is this on the TV?
