Prom Night — What to Wear

  • posted February 28th, 2007
  • Fashion

By now, most of the buzz from the Oscars has died down. We all know
who was there and who wasn’t. Who wore hot dresses and who should’ve stayed
home (or at least consulted her best friend prior to the event). We also know
that the color selection was pretty dismal at the Oscars. I have faith that
there will be an abundant array of dress colors at proms everywhere this year.
It’s a fabulous year to go to prom! The designers have really outdone
themselves with styles and colors. So, which are your favorites? There are so
many to choose from; it can be overwhelming!

While I won’t be going to any proms this year, I can certainly show you some prom dresses that are sure to be winners!

Jovani Prom Dresses are HOT! Jovani was voted Prom Designer of the Year!

Tiffany Prom Dresses are to die for (not literally, but you know what I mean).

This is just a splash in the bucket in terms of the styles and colors that are available this year. It’s really incredible! Search around and find what’s right for you. Your prom pictures are ones that will stay with you forever, so make sure you have a fabulous dress that will make photo memories ones that you’ll cherish everytime you look at them.

So here we are, the day the Oscars and life goes back to "normal" (whatever that may be). It was an exciting night for many. I’m sure I don’t need to recap the winners, as there are plenty of sites doing that already. What I will do is post some pictures of a few of the stars that showed up to the real Oscars along with TheFind’s pet stars featured in our very first video spoof of the Oscarss — The Golden Bones.

Pets on the Red Carpet

You read the title correctly, it actually says PETS (as in animals) on the red carpet. Which red carpet, you ask? Well, you’ll have to check out the video to find out. Like I said yesterday, you won’t find anything like this anywhere else. You can only find it at TheFind (and all the social video sites we posted it to, but you get what I mean). This video is brought to you by TheFind. There, is that better? ;o)

We promise you that this is THE gala event of the year! And you’re seeing it here first.

Without further ado…here are ThePets of TheFind:

It May Not Be the Oscars, but…

It’s coming soon…the gala event of the year! You haven’t seen anything like this before and it’s brought to you by TheFind. It’s true, the Oscars will be here Sunday and that’s a huge yearly event! Some will say it’s THE event of the year, but we’re here to tell you that there’s something else. Stay tuned because tomorrow’s the BIG day! I can’t give you any details yet, but I promise to give you the whole scoop tomorrow. Trust me, Perez Hilton doesn’t even have word on this one. But, he will. ;o)

Until tomorrow,
Payton

The World Belongs to “i(insert word here)”

  • posted January 11th, 2007

IphoneIt seems that everytime I turn around there’s a new "i(something)" on the market or coming soon. The most exciting, of course is the much anticipated iPhone! My knee jerk reaction is that the iPhone will take over the (cellular) world. The pessimist in me says that there will be some or perhaps a lot of resistence.

Sight unseen, my biggest resistence is that they’ll only be offering a 4GB and 8GB for $499 and $599 respectively. My iPod Video has 30GB and I’m pretty happy about that! Movies take up a lot of space! I couldn’t imagine running the phone, contacts, surfing the internet, listening to music, watching movies, etc all with only 4 or 8GB. That just doesn’t sound adequate. For that reason alone, I’ll wait until they expand. Because, you know they will.

If I weren’t already a Cingular Wireless subscriber, then I would definitely complain about the fact that Cingular has an exclusive on the phone. I realize that many cell phone manufacturers do exclusive deals, but this is Apple folks. Huh, as I type that I realize how stupid that statement is. Oh well, I’d still have issue with it if I weren’t with Cingular. But, since I’m already in the "right cellular family," I’ll stop complaining about the issue that doesn’t affect me.

I definitely think it’s pretty to look at with the sexy screen and all. I’d be willing to bet that some people won’t like the touch screen, but I think I could get used to it even though I’ve been using a real QWERTY keyboard for about 5 years now.

I don’t know, I think it’s cool, but like I said I’ll wait for more memory before I make the jump and dump my Treo (which I love)!  Speaking of, I wonder what the calendar feature will be like. I haven’t seen any specifics on it. I’ve found that no other platform can really touch Palm’s calendar. If it’s not up to snuff, then I’ll definitely keep my Treo.

What do you think? Will this be the next phone for you???

Happy Gadgeting,

Family Holiday Traditions

  • posted December 22nd, 2006

Time is running out for online shopping folks! Christmas is Monday, so unless you’re buying gifts for people that you won’t see until after "the big day," you’re probably out of luck. Assuming that the gifts have been purchased, let’s chat about family holiday traditions.

Whether you realize it or not, just about every family has at least one tradition for Christmas. For Peanutbutterballs_d
my family, like many…cooking and eating is a big part of holiday traditions. My Dad would always kick off the Christmas season by baking lots of cookies and candies and yummy delights. Through the years, it became imperative (to us) that he make Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls. Christmas just isn’t Christmas without these yummy treats!

In addition, my Dad would host dinner on Christmas Eve, something big and fancy with multiple courses. We’d all dress up in fancy holiday clothes and act really proper for the evening.  We’d all swear that we wouldn’t discuss politics, religion or any controversial topics, but we always did anyway. We’d also talk about the new year to come and what we wanted to focus on.

When I was young, my Dad would dash out and do all his Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve. He would carefully separate out my step-Mom’s presents and leave those in the car to wrap later. He would then sneak the other gifts in the backdoor and hide them in his room where my step-Mom would do most of the wrapping while my Dad got back to cooking. It was a crazy scheme, but it worked! As we got older, my Dad started shopping earlier because the crazy Christmas Eve dash really stressed out my step-Mom.

If my step-Grandma was around for dinner, she would start us off with a prayer and would then recite The Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish. This may seem perfectly normal for many households, but we’re not Spanish speakers, so it was a bit quirky (and we love Grandma for it). After dessert, it was time for the spoon hanging contest. This is something that Grandma started long ago at Thanksgiving actually. It’s weird, but funny…we’d all lick our spoons and hang them from our noses to see who’s would hang the longest. There were no prizes for this incredible talent, just some strange entertainment value after a very large meal.

Christmastreewithgifts
After dinner we would each open one gift as a preview for the next morning’s chaos. And trust me, it was always chaos! The number of presents that were piled under and around the tree was amazing. The mess that ensued from everyone opening gifts was unbelievable! We couldn’t even find most of our gifts through all the mess. Afterwards, Dad would always make an amazing brunch of Eggs Benedict and a bunch of side dishes. And then we’d spend the rest of the day playing with our new toys and games.

So, that’s pretty much my family’s tradition…what’s yours?!? Is it similar or different from mine? I’d love to hear about it.

Happy Holidays,
Payton

Solo Act

Back, by popular demand…more iPod products! (And the crowd goes wild!!!) The crowd will really go wild if you gift the following items for your favorite iPod fan. Depending on the talent (or lack there of) of the person you gift this to will determine if the crowd’s wild factor is positive or negative. We’ve all seen "American Idol," right?!?

Ikaraoke No, it’s not a billy club…it’s iKaraoke! With this cool gadget, you can turn any song on your iPod into a karoake tune. It will strip out the lead vocals so you can insert your own. There are options to leave a lead track to help you through the song and you can add reverb to your microphone too!

Speakers

Take your karaoke act on the road with these JBL Encounter Speakers. You can entertain people everywhere you go. Think of the money you could make if you put out a tip hat when singing on the streets. Just a thought. People have certainly done stranger things.

Drive_and_play Another cool and useful accessory for the iPod is the Harmon Kardon Drive & Play. This cool contraption will allow you to control your iPod while driving, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road by mounting an iPod-like menu on the dash. There are three ways to hook it up to your car. I’m betting you could still use the iKaraoke with this while you’re driving. Just think of how fun road trips will be!

So, there you have it! You can take your "act" on the road and entertain millions with your iKaraoke and portable speakers. In addition to taking your car singing to a whole new level. The possibilities are endless. Forget the day job, hit the road Jack(ie)!

Happy Searching/Shopping,
Payton

Oh My! iPod

  • posted December 3rd, 2006
  • Fashion

There are more iPod accessories and gadgets than I can keep track of. Honestly, I LOVE my iPod, but this cool toy has spawned a larger sub-market than anything I’ve ever seen! I remember when they first came out…I thought, "Eh, who needs it. I have CDs." I resisted for a really long time and then the iPod Video was born and I caved. Now I think, "How did I ever live without this amazing invention?" I appreciate CDs, but only so I can rip them to my iPod. Remember those large vinyl disks that scratched and skipped like crazy? Ha! Pardon me, I’ve digressed. Did I mention that I LOVE my iPod?!? Okay, good. Let’s move on to the iPod toys, shall we?

Icrib
Run out and buy a iCrib Sound System for anyone you know who owns an iPod and has recently had a new baby. They will will love you (more) for this great find! Plus, it’s  under $50.

Ipod_h2o
Do you know someone who sings in the shower or who’d like to listen to their favorite tunes while snorkling? The H2O Audio for iPod Video is made for them. Be sure to purchase the Waterproof Headphones as well.

Alarm

Wake up next to a halo encasing your iPod because really, your iPod can do no wrong. The JBL OnTime will set you back a couple hundred bucks, but you can hit the snooze button and forget about it.

Burton_120 You’re probably thinking that this image looks out of place, right? But, it’s where it belongs. This is a Burton Audex Beanie will keep your head and ears warm while serving up the earbuds (and tunes) from your iPod.

I could go on and on, but I’ll stop here with this great sampling. My appreciation goes out to CNET for compiling these great gift ideas and so much more in their Holiday Gift Guide 2006. These particular items came from Stocking Stuffer section. This is one of the best gift guides I’ve seen. Kudos to CNET!

What’s your favorite gift guide? Are there any accessories that you’d like to get for your iPod this Christmas? Enquiring minds want to know.

Happy Searching/Shopping,
Payton
