Regretsy’s Crafter School Special: Make Your Own Snooki Mask

featured-image-2684029

When Savings.com asked me to create a weekly DIY tutorial for their readers, I was overwhelmed. I was also drunk, which is why I said yes.

But I think you’ll agree that I’m a natural for a job like this, because I have almost no crafting ability. And if there’s one thing the handmade movement has taught us, it’s that you don’t actually need talent to craft, and everyone has to pretend to like it anyway.

And speaking of no talent, how great is Jersey Shore? Really great, that’s how. And if all those kids did was smoke cigarettes and vomit on themselves, it would be enough for me. But God love them, they’ve got so much more on the ball. Did you know that three of them are already published authors? And Snooki’s book is on the New York Times Bestseller List! It all seems so effortless for them. Probably because they didn’t actually write anything.

Wouldn’t we all want a taste of that life? You bet we would. And today, I’m going to show you how to see the world through Snooki’s eyes. Soon you’ll be living the dream, one happy hour at at time.

The Tech-pert: MagicJack and Other Options for Cheaper Smartphone Calling Plans

I’ve often said it’s not the price of smartphones that bothers me, it’s the monthly fee you have to pay for service.

AT&T and Verizon, for example, charge $59.99 per month for 900-minute plans–not including the obligatory data plan for your iPhone or Android phone. And if you’re a serious gabber, the unlimited voice plans will run you $69.99 monthly.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could switch to the cheapest available voice plan, without giving up a single minute of talk time? Thanks to a couple amazing apps, you can.

Celebrities know how important it is to look beautiful. Having spent so much time in a hair and makeup chair, they know a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t. Recently, entrepreneur and actress Salma Hayek announced that she will be carrying out her own affordable beauty line, Nuance, which will feature natural ingredients from her native country. The anti-aging properties in the ingredients have been used by the women in her family for generations. Her grandmother “died at 96 with no wrinkles“, she said.

One of the things I love most about shopping on Amazon is they have everything I need. But they also have lots of things that nobody needs. I decided to investigate further and bought the 3 most useless or obnoxious items I could find on Amazon – the Girlfriend Body Pillow, BIC For Her Pens, and a Banana Slicer.
