These wireless headphones give Bose and Beats by Dre some major competition. Originally priced at $130, you can get these from Amazon for under $70, and that includes free shipping.

These headphones have an interference-free reception which means that you can walk from room-to-room and hear clearly through walls and ceilings throughout your house.
Chromecast makes streaming from your cell phone, iPad, or laptop to your TV a breeze. As a huge Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime fan, it’s great to sit on the couch and use your cell phone as a remote to stream your favorite TV shows & movies.

I’ve also found Chromecast to be an excellent alternative to an Apple TV. As long as you’re using the Chrome web browser you can stream your desktop right to your TV from a Mac or PC.

I have been menstruating for over half my life. I’m used to it. I’m, dare I say, pretty good at it. The monthly act of going to the drug store and buying my tampons, cramp meds and assorted accouterments that no longer faze me like it did when I was fifteen. I don’t think there’s anything unusual about the ease with which I deal with the emotional terrorist that is Aunt Flo.But if I were the sort of woman who, let’s say, wasn’t comfortable getting their Tampax
If you don’t know what tea tree oil is, or are an extra-terrestrial new to this planet, let me briefly explain: Tea tree oil is an essential oil that can replace certain skin care products (like you might find at ULTA), cleaning and home products of all kinds, and even some over-the-counter medications. Tea tree oil’s stock is on the rise — in fact, at this rate, it’s safe to say that tea tree oil is the new kale. (But don’t eat it or use it for cooking: It’s an essential
Look at you, sitting on the IKEA futon you didn’t buy off Craigslist, reading this via a WiFi connection you’re not stealing from your upstairs neighbor. Tsk, tsk. What are you, the Queen of England? Stop acting like you’re richer than you are! (Note: If you actually are the Queen of England, my apologies. And can I borrow $2 million?)If you’re not me, chances are you’re spending way more on necessities than you should. I’m sorry, you paid retail for what? Get
Just this past weekend I spent $70 on beauty supplies. Just six basic supplies.

I did a little digging and, as it turns out … there are.An Acne-Clearing Face Mask My face is a big toughie for me. It’s both dry and oily, prone to breakouts and often in need of a little

Salon: How to make a bad economy even worse – I gotta get partisan here, and that might be okay because the majority of the country wants to raise revenue (i.e. taxes). The debt ceiling debate is continually
This week has been a game of catch-up for me. On Monday, I was still working on an article due the week before and the laundry that was supposed to be done on Thursday is still not done.I am running behind. Most of the time, when I’m running behind, it’s not because there isn’t enough time to get done what I want to do, it’s because I am guilty of misusing my time. I’m chatting with a friend, I’m watching fabulous reality TV, I’m window shopping online; I’m
