Speaking of fall, Pumpkin Spice Oreos are out, and while I couldn’t find any at my store yesterday, this review of their taste does have me a bit intrigued. Mostly because they apparently don’t taste very pumpkiny at all. Ha!

My guilty pleasure is the snooze button. And while I’m not one of those people who uses my phone as an alarm clock, this app that forces you to spin around in order to turn off your alarm sounds like it could be pretty great for people like me.

There’s a zillion types of home-monitoring cameras on the market. But the Withings¬†Home¬†definitely looks the prettiest and seems to have a bunch of added features I could definitely see myself using.

I was OBSESSED with the TMNT when I younger and have very mixed feelings about the new version about to come out. Why do they look so scary??? Anywho, Pizza Hut is (understandably) trying to get as much traction as possible from the new movie. So much so that they created a real-life Pizza Tank.

I’m not a huge fan of the girls who wear flower crowns (I guess they’re fine at a music festival, but still…), but I did laugh at the male equivalent – Beard Flowers.

I’m really glad we didn’t run into Penelope while we were in Brooklyn the other day.

I couldn’t want this cloud lamp that has simulated lightning and thunder (and even does a light show to music!!) anymore than I do. Bad ass!
