I am officially a Cumberb*tch, part of the Cumberbatch tribe, Team Cumberbatch, a Sherlockian if you will. If you have no idea what any of that means, let me say it in simpler terms: BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH.

The past year has only grown my love of this awkwardly adorable man. I binge watched Sherlock (and have rewatched it too many times), I loved him in Stark Trek and 12 Years a Slave and every new story about him made my heart jump. He is the perfect kind of celebrity- he’s quirky, he’s funny, and he’s somehow handsome. And did I mention, he’s Sherlock?

I don’t understand my adoration for him, but I don’t even care. Continue reading

One of my coworkers has a tiny printout of Sad Keanu that sits taped to the top of his cubicle. To this coworker I say, why put up with a flimsy paper Sad Keanu when you can have a sturdy, detailed figurine instead?

Shapeways offers just that – full color Sad Keanu figures from sandstone, lifelike enough to see the despair in poor Keanu’s eyes, and perfectly positioned to perch on a wide variety of surfaces, from computer monitors to shelves to, oh, I don’t know, cubicles? Continue reading

Candles are used to create various kinds of moods. For me, it’s relaxation. Some candles on the side of a bubble bath are literally my picture perfect idea of unwinding after a long day. For some, particular my mother, lit candles mean a clean and warm house (she’s a clean freak). However, I think for most people candles create an atmosphere of romance, which is particularly perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day festivities. But, what if all of these don’t really match your style? What if you’re looking for a more fun atmosphere? Urban Outfitters has the candle for you.

You are stressed out and lonely, and the only contact you have with your significant other is through Skype or phone calls. You just want a hug, but hugging your phone or your computer screen just won’t do it! Long-distance relationships can be nightmares! But Pillow Talk, a product by Little Riot, will have you dreaming peacefully. Continue reading

I have always felt that January was the middle month, separating two of the best parts of winter: Christmas and Valentine’s Day. Though the Christmas festivities are long over, we can now begin building excitement for the next holiday in line. Even if you don’t have a significant other this Valentine’s Day, that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the Hallmark-created day of love. The best way to show someone you care about them is through a good old-fashioned DIY present. Continue reading

Andrew Hellman’s love of scotch made him search for a way to keep his drink cold without diluting it and… Voila! Whiskey Stones were born. Carved from natural Vermont soapstone, Whiskey Stones maintain a stable temperature over extended periods of time. They’re actually derived from an old Scandinavian tradition of using rocks to chill drinks in storage. Continue reading

Bikes, skateboards, cars, running shoes and mopeds are all common modes of transportation I’m surrounded by at college. Then the other day I saw someone on skates. I was instantly jealous. All I could think about the rest of the day was the fancy purple in-line skates I got when I was nine. I was obsessed with them for the longest time. My Mom hated when I wore them inside. But how could I not? The gliding feeling is like flying! Continue reading

I know at least two people who would like Perpetual Kid’s Nessie Push Pins – me and How I Met Your Mother’s Marshall Ericksen. If, like Marshall, you want to capture the real Loch Ness Monster, these pins might not quite cut it, but I think they come awesomely close.

Made up of four sections, the pin sets have the Loch Ness Monster covered from head to tail, able to hold onto all the papers you might need them to. The green pins may not be the most accurate looking depiction of Nessie, but they’re pretty darn cute. Continue reading

I love music, so when I found this guitar pick punch, I knew it would be the perfect quirky item to share.

Guitar picks are so easy to lose – you loan them to friends, drop them onstage or throw them into the crowd at gigs, or forget them in your pocket and send them through the laundry. Continue reading

I’d be really surprised if most of you hadn’t already heard about this game but just in case you live under a rock or have non-game loving friend; here is the inside info. The party game Cards Against Humanity is exclusively sold on Amazon in the U.S. (plug for my employer) and is basically just like Apples to Apples but dirtier.  How dirty? Well, let’s just say you wouldn’t want to play with your mom or any seemingly non-sexual member of your family or friend base.  Although I’d love to give you some rated-R examples, I’m pretty sure I’d get in trouble with my editor. Instead, let me introduce you to some videos of people playing the game. Continue reading
