I never cook (I used to pretend it was some sort of feminist statement, but I've recently faced up to the fact that I'm just lazy) and so I almost never watch the Food Network. I just figured I'd missed out on something fabulous that the rest of the world seemed to have caught on to. ... Read More

BY Dawn in General

 This is perhaps one of the greatest gifts I've ever been bestowed upon. Grillz Candy! YEP! It's like a lollipop, but instead of a stick, you hold it with your new blinged out grillz that clip to the front of your teeth. These totally kick the ring pop's ass.

Sugarcraft, an exhibition of over 50 artists from all over the world opens June 27th at Kasia Kay Art Projects in Chicago and runs through till August 9th.  The theme of the exhibit focuses on indulgence in the arts and it also breaks down the boundaries between art and craft.

KFC chickens out

BY Dawn in General

 In response to pressures from PETA, KFC Canada has given into their demands to start offering vegan options on their menu. "Un-chicken" nuggets will soon be available in the Canada locations.
