We’ve all been there. There’s a party tonight, and you know you’re supposed to put on a frilly outfit and giggle with your girlfriends, but you’re in the middle of writing that great story, finishing that game, or developing the ultimate cupcake recipe.
Now there’s a web series that celebrates those girls–the smart ones. We might show up a bit late to the frilly party, but when we get there we’ll have some interesting stories to tell (and an amazing dance party at the end of our story!) Smart Girls at the Party, a Webby-winning series, interviews young women who are doing different but extraordinary things with their lives, and celebrates the fact that girls can be smart and pursue different passions.
Take a look at this episode with Cameron, a 10 year old girl with a passion for writing supernatural stories.
I wish I had a show like this when I was their age!

Sure, you need a bit of science to help you with everyday cooking and baking… but these objects will make you want to break out your lab coat and goggles. Applied Physics is a series of kitchen gadgets that use popular scientific methods to make cooking and entertaining a bit better, just like the wine pourer, seen above. Using the Pascal Principle, it pours an equal amount of wine into each glass.
I’m liking these multi-function tools: They assist with tasks AND make me feel like I’m conducting a really neat science experiment!
Seattle may have a reputation for being a rainy city, but in reality the weather changes often and in an instant. Most locals have mastered the art of layering to keep them prepared. But what type of coat should they be wearing out of the house: A blazer? A thin windbreaker? The all-out fluffy winter jacket?
With the Online Coat Rack, we’ll have a better idea. The coat rack uses the power of the internet to let you know the weather and suggest an appropriate coat. It’s just a prototype right now, but I know I would be the first to buy this if it becomes a real product.
What technology do you currently use to make sure you’re dressed appropriately for the weather?
Did you get a certain chill every time you were asked to work out a problem on the blackboard in school? Do you enjoy nothing more than the smell of chalk and feel of a chalkboard? Don’t fret–you can now relive your school days in your kitchen!
These chalkboard cabinets will help you reclaim your smarty pants status. Plus, it keeps you organized so your genius thoughts can solve other problems. Yay! Just use some chalkboard paint on your existing cabinets for a fun fresh redecorating idea.
(For an added bonus, make the cabinets magnetic! This Magnetic Primer can be used underneath any latex paint (or chalkboard paint!) to give you a couple extra places to hang your fun magnets and quick notes-to-self.)
When placed on your lawn, these grenades will decompose and release flower seeds from within. Plus, your yard will look like a war zone for a few days before. Finally–a bomb with a practical application!
Grenades are available in packs of 3 on the Suck UK site.
I recently asked an interior designer for some tips and tricks on making small spaces look larger, to which he replied “I… LOVE… LAMPS.” I quickly stifled my grin and thoughts of Anchorman, and took his words to heart.
Lamps are a great way to accessorize a room and make it seem a bit larger, but what if you don’t have room for another?
This LED “Flat Light Poster” by Moss is a fun and unique way to get a bit more light in that hallway or above your desk. A limited number were available at $195 each, and now the lamp is on special order only, meaning you will have a truly one of a kind piece.
