Unless you never venture beyond your doorstep checking the weather is an important part of any morning routine. We have found our five favorite ways to check the weather and were wanting you to shares yours below.
The time has come to outfit myself with the proper tools for (very casual, renter-style) home repair. Though my handy cordless drill could never be considered pretty, I'm determined to find tools that are well-crafted, long-lasting and lovely to behold.
My husband and I love our Craftsman tool chest. It was one of the best investments we made for our home — a central place to have our tools located, organized and stored. Plus, it's shiny and red and that never hurts. But there's one major thing we wish we would have known about this type of tool chest before we put it to work and we want everyone to know so they don't have the same problems we did!
Sometimes the best ingenuity happens when you're between a rock and a hard place. The previous owner of my home had a cat. A nice yet ridiculously furry cat. Having grown up with felines in my home, I wasn't shocked by the amount of hair ground into the carpet, but what I wasn't prepared for was my complete inability to remove it — until today!
Firefox users have been enjoying add-ons for some time now. In the recent Safari 5 release, dedicated Safari users were invited to create and enjoy what Apple are calling extensions. They work the same as Firefox add-ons — 3rd party applications built into a web browser in order to further customize and enhance your web browsing experience. After the jump we’re going to provide you with a list of our favorites that will help you do everything from simplify Youtube’s interface to improve your Gmail experience.
We're not here to start a revolution but rather talk about the new world of high-efficiency, modern flashlights. At one point, we were stopped at the airport by a nice TSA officer and after finding the Surefire Defender model in our luggage, he inquired, "What do you need this for?" We simply replied, "To see in the dark". That's the sole purpose of a flashlight.
A lot of people toss around the term “minimalist” these days as they try to describe very simple (or simplistic — in the case of our trusty Patrick Star) design. When stripping away the aesthetics and meaning to its bare minimum, the designer mustn’t sacrifice performance and usability. This task is harder than it sounds. There are few who get the final product just right. After the jump we’ll show you a free (and ad-less) online to-do list that marries form and function in a very understated and straightforward manor.
Last week a few of us attended the Martha Stewart Bloggers' Night Out in the Starrett Lehigh building in Chelsea, NYC. It was PACKED with bloggers and press people, but we managed to snap a couple of photos of some very cool new paint products, including a kit with tools to Martha-ize your walls. (It becomes available for pre-order today.)
When we first came across this product, we thought it to be rather silly. When someone enters the sight of this Scarecrow sprinkler, it turns on; in theory running off the neighborhood intruders, no matter how many legs they have. But then we started reading the ridiculously positive reviews and it's actually quite effective. Plus, it doesn't hurt that it has the best customer image gallery ever!
