Labor Day is right around the corner, do you have plans? Time to plan your end-of-summer celebration! As a perpetual-yet-purely-non-professional party planner myself, I always find grandiose new ideas I want to try or delicious little new foods I want to make for my guests, but I always run into the same problem… I run out of time. Some of you might be saying, ‘Candie, how can you run out of time when you plan each event months in advance!?!’ LOL, I say this to myself every time too! I’ve found that it’s not the planning that needs more time, it’s the preparation, and there’s not much wiggle room there, since most is done the day of a party. So I’ve learned to simplify each idea into under 3 steps and under 10 minutes, with easy instructions that I can delegate.

Have you ever torn out one of those fragrance ads in a magazine to test out a new scent? I know I have.
I do a lot of party planning for my friends and the next one I have coming up is a baby shower for my bestest of all bestest of friends. She’s a paper lover like me, so the usual Evite won’t do; it’s got to be old-fashioned invites sent through the mail! I’m wracking my brain for cool ideas, and an ad for perfume caught my eye… er… nose! Wouldn’t baby powder–scented invitations be so fitting?!
Polaroid may have stopped production on their widely-popular instant pictures, but this cool new gadget will for sure bring back the fad, with a new spin.
Next Day Flyers employees have come together to form a team for the upcoming EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women in Los Angeles. We have named the team Next Day Cure, catchy huh! The whole company is very motivated and excited for this incredible fundraiser!
Looking to be original this Valentine’s Day? Store-bought cards are impersonal. What can you do that’s cheap and easy, but still stand out? I found a cute little site that could be that original and cost-effective Valentine you were looking for.

Winter season is here and for the past two weeks I’ve been trying to grow facial hair to keep myself warmer. And the results are spectacularly – um – bad! Alas. It seems not everyone is blessed with the ability to grow thick and stylish facial hair. But never fear – Beardhead to the rescue! The Beardhead is a hat with an integrated beard and moustache to keep you warm and stylish all at the same time. So, when you’re out on the slopes this winter, enjoy and ride with style!
To add the countless information you can find on Google, they now have an inside track on Santa Claus. I just read the most heart-warming story of how the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), of all places, got into the Santa tracking game on the Google Blog.
Check out the NORAD Tracks Santa site for the Christmas Countdown and fun family Christmas-themed activities, but the real headliner of the show happens on Christmas Eve, where you can track Santa’s path on Google Earth. Happy Tracking!
I don’t even know how I found these, but I’m wondering where they’ve been all my life! It was like the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot. I dreamt about the Holy Grail of party plates, but couldn’t ever find it. I knew I’d seen them somewhere before, but what are they called, and how can I Google them? Every party store I went to had no recollection of them and I always left feeling incomplete and concerned that I might be crazy for thinking they ever existed…
