I was recently inspired by this photo that Portland-based designer, developer, and writer Neven Mrgan tweeted last week — why make pigs in a blanket when you can make CTHULHUS in a blanket instead?! That's right!
About 8 years ago I moved from Portland to Seattle and realized I had way. Too. Much. Crap. I thought to myself, "Self, you can either donate to Goodwill or you can see if your friends want to pick through your stuff."
I chose the latter. Girlfriends came over, some brought over clothing and shoes, and thus Lily's Nekkid Lady Party was born. I'm here to tell you how to throw your own…
My wife and I are turning our only large closet into a nursery, which means the cat box needs to go somewhere else. The problem: one of our cats is a MAJOR litter tracker. Not just a tracker — he makes an Olympic sport out of digging in the litter box. What kind of boxes/litter to do you all use to contain the mess?
I linked to this humungus padded $200 Totoro sleeping bag a couple weeks ago on the the Offbeat Home Facebook page, but I didn't realize that Laughing Squid had posted an amazing video of a complete Totoro fanboy named Joey Graceffa FREAKING THE FUCK OUT over getting his Totoro sleeping bed bag thing in the mail

To all those beautiful offbeat girlies that have perfect skin… I am a 26-year-old and still have acne. I recently went off my birth control pills in order to make some off-kilter spawn and now my skin looks like I have the plague! My skin was pretty good on the pill, but now that I'm off, these painful little bastards are seriously putting a cramp in my style. I've got my foot out the door to the dermatologist, but before I go… Help!
Back in my wild-partying days, I used to do this thing for myself: before I went out, I'd get my bedroom all set up to be the perfect come-down/hangover den. I'd make the bed and fold back the blanket. I'd leave the twinkly lights on. I'd set a glass of water on the bedside with a couple Advil, right next to the stereo remote. Basically, I got really good at anticipating my compromised mental/emotional state, and pre-creating a space to make it a little easier.
In my kitchen now, I've used the same idea to create the perfect caffeine altar.
