My favorite part of “end of years” is the abundance of Top 10 lists!

This one I always love — check out THE BEST ADS OF 2011! I like that this site also gives a bit of background info before you watch the ad. Google & Volkswagen are definitely my top 2! That little Darth Vader kid was awesome — despite seeing no facial expressions, you could totally imagine his reactions!

Enjoy,

GENIUS!! Have you ever regretted sending “that” text the morning after?! There is now an app that promises to be a a guardian of  your texting behavior!!

Textalyzer uses 4 engaging and challenging games to analyze your state of mind. Succeed in winning the games means you should be clear-headed enough to send out a coherent text. Fail and you are forbidden to send “that” text!!

You can also leave reminders to stop yourself from sending out text messages so you won’t regret your actions later. Plus, you can add “that guy/girl’s” name on a Forbidden list!!

The only problem is that you have to remember in your drunken state to use the app to send texts and not just write a normal text message on your phone!

I still think it is pure genius! Finally a way to prevent me from texting while drunk! 99 cents is worth it–right in time for New Year’s Eve!!

Sir Paul McCartney may be known for creating memorable rock melodies in one of the biggest bands in the world, the Beatles, but since 2009, he is also known for his ongoing campaign educating fans about how to eat less meat, not just for their health, but also to influence the sustainability of the world by decreasing their environmental impact. Basically how to go veggie to save yourself and the world!

It’s only logical that the next step would be a cookbook!

So, with the help of his daughters Mary and Stella, as well as some of his famous friends (Twiggy, Vivienne Westwood, Kevin Spacey,…) MCCartney released a new cookbook called The Meat Free Monday Cookbook.

McCartney explained his latest undertaking: “Having one designated meat free day a week is actually a meaningful change that everyone can make, that goes to the heart of several important political, environmental and ethical issues all at once. For instance it not only addresses pollution, but better health, the ethical treatment of animals, global hunger and community and political activism.”

The Meat Free Monday Cookbook includes recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, and to make it even easier for you, it features menus for each of the 52 weeks of the year. Of course, recipes are all vegetarian, but I gotta say that some are pretty mouth watering!

Well, it looks like Jennifer Aniston no longer has the most desirable & sought-after Hollywood hairstyle. According to the Wall Street Journal,  when it comes to actress haircuts to emulate, Harry Potter star Emma Watson’s cropped mane is the most desirable.

For the boys, Justin Bieber’s swish was the style most asked for. No swish on this photo — Beiber cut it off last February, so despite himself not styling his hair that way for the past year, it was still dubbed the most influential.

Both Emma and Justin were the fastest-rising searches for celebrity haircuts on Google this year. They kinda have the same do now! haha I guess I shouldn’t grow out my pixie cut!!

Have you ever checked out the website AwkwardFamilyPhoto.com ?! Here is the latest addition… thanks to the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico!

The odd family Christmas card sent out this year shows a smiling Mayor Jorge Santini, his wife and three children standing arranged behind a stuffed and mounted jaguar with his mouth clenched on an antelope’s throat!! The greeting reads in Spanish: “That you may illuminate your dream this Christmas.”

When asked about the oddness of the card, Santini says the picture was meant to promote the San Juan Wildlife Museum.

The card has gone viral, landing on the blog AwkwardFamilyPhoto.com and shared more than 15,000 times on Facebook.

Did you know that mistletoe has been one of the most magical, mysterious and sacred plant of European folklore — seen as a bestower of life and fertility!

I didn’t! I also didn’t know about proper mistletoe etiquette, so thought I would share with you!

CORRECT MISTLETOE ETIQUETTE: a man should pluck a berry when he kisses a women under the mistletoe. When the last berry is gone — there should be no more kissing!

Make sure you buy berry-full mistletoes for your parties!!

Are you single? Are you looking for romance? If yes, choose your pet wisely! Why? Well because 72% of singles say that animals make a difference as to whether or not they would date someone.

If you don’t want your pet to interfere with your love life, you’re best off owning a hamster or guinea-pig… haha YES! A hamster or a guinea-pig!!! 

A new poll found that just 10% of women and 13% of men would be turned off if they found out a new date lived with those small animals.

If you choose to own a squirmier pet, make sure you’re really in love with it — because it’s unlikely you’ll get lucky with anyone else! Owning spiders and snakes are the biggest turn-offs for both sexes; 53% of women would blow off a spider-owner, 46% say no if you have a snake and 44% shut the door to rat-keepers. Men had the same turnoffs, but to a lesser degree.

Would you find it weird to meet an adult with a hamster?! I think I would… hahaha
