FashionFashion Do or Don’t: Scrunchies!



I think most of us remember how extremely cool scrunchies were in the late eighties and early nineties, and the pics prove it. With fashion icons like Lisa Turtle from Saved by the Bell, and fashion queen Madonna rocking the scrunch, you can’t deny there was a confident sense of style going on when you wound that perfect patterned scrunchie into your (probably crispy) ‘do.


…and the scrunchie is back! MCS London (a.k.a My Crazy Scrunchie) is actually doing some pretty artful things with their flowy, petal-like designs, and fashionable celebs like Cressida Bonas (um, Prince Harry’s girlfriend) are scrunching it up in some really cute ways. The scrunchie has also been seen on the runways of Marc Jacobs and Missoni, so look out ladies, the scrunchie may be your new best friend!

Think you’ll be rocking the scrunchie soon?

GeneralSite to See: Coffitivity!


Do coffee shop sounds boost your creativity? Audio-based site Coffitivity seems to think so. If you’re the type that works better with a little white noise and hustle and bustle, you are no longer required to be anywhere near it (that’s right folks, it’s the twenty-first century!). Interestingly enough, you can bring the cafe right into your home workspace or any other disagreeably quiet location with one of three ambient options available on Coffitivity:

“Morning Murmur” – Offers light soothing sounds with low, indistinguishable conversation, and a gentle hum of activity.
“Lunchtime Lounge” – Takes it up about half a notch from “Morning Murmur” with a little more lunchtime buzz.
“University Undertones” – Probably the peppiest of the three, you’ll hear a few more chairs and livelier conversation, but the scene is still gentle enough to get your work done.

And because we live in a world of media sharing and personal musical devices, you have both the option to share your own favorite cafe or background sounds, as well as to add music from your iTunes over the top of  the “cafe.”  The Coffitivity app is available for your Mac, iPad, or iPhone.
