My sister, Stephanie, told me about LE TOTE- it's an online service that sends you clothes and accessories each month. The best asects of the servic: You can get multiple totes each month, you fill out a style profile so (in theory) you get items you'll love and you don't have to worry about cleaning the clothes- they take care of it on their end.
I haven't tried it yet, but I'm thinking of giving it a go. If you or a friend has tried the service, please comment below and let us know if you like it.
How does the service work? Via letote.com's website:
You simply fill out your style profile, submit your payment, “heart” items that you love, and we will get you a personalized tote mailed to you. You can keep and wear as long as you want. You never have to wash or clean it. Keep it for 2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months – that’s totally up to you. All you pay is $49 for each month you continue to keep the service.

Does your job have any amazing perks? It seems no matter what job you do, there's at least a perk or two that goes along with it. Being in radio, I get to go to concerts- that's a big one for me- I didn't go to my first live show until I was 18 so I feel like I had a lot of catching up to do!
Here are 20 Companies with some truly amazing employee perks...
Office perks: Pinterest hacks are notoriously hit or miss, but the company holds regular Hackathons, where employees choose a creative idea and work together to make it happen. And in lieu of hacks, there’s a weekly happy hour where employees get to ask questions to the founders of Pinterest.
Office perks: An on-site concierge is available to mail your packages, send flowers, deliver groceries to your house, and get the oil in your car changed. Other cool perk? Whenever you retire, you’re rewarded with a lifetime membership to the company fitness center.
Office perks: If you work at Mars Chocolate (brands like Snickers and Twix) or Wrigley (brands like Skittles and Starburst) you get FREE CANDY! (All the pink Starbursts your heart desires.) And if you work for any of their pet divisions, then bringing your furry friend to the office is encouraged.
Office perks: Sustenance is key for the ThousandEyes employees. Which means lunch is free and catered every day, and if you’re working late, dinner gets comped. Did I mention that the office has an intense espresso machine, and employees get free Espresso 101 classes, like “Latte Art.”
Office perks: On site doctors and medical services to keep employees healthy without the awfulness of waiting rooms. Free lunch, dinner, massages, yoga, and car washes are also part of the package.
Office perks: Flexibility is the name of the Mills game. When you start at the company, you automatically get three weeks of paid vacation a year, and that increases the longer you work there. Plus, they have flexible work arrangements and encourage telecommuting and/or working part-time when it helps your schedule.

There's something about the notion that Andy Kaufman faked his death and is still living among us that is so...I don't know...appealing to me, I guess? I didn't know a ton about him or was even that interested until I saw the move 'Man on The Moon' starring Jim Carey. He was portrayed as such an interesting man and I guess as I type this I'm realizing I don't really know much about him...
On Monday, at the 'Andy Kaufman Awards', Andy's brother (Michael Kaufman) appeared on stage and read a letter allegedly typed by his brother (Andy) which stated he was alive and living with a woman with whom he had raised a daughter.
That alleged daughter was then brought up on stage. Click here to read the Yahoo story from Monday.
Last night, CNN posted a story after interviewing Andy's brother, Michael, where he admitted he thinks he's the victim of a hoax. While that's probably true, the CNN post went on to say...
"Andy Kaufman, the comedic genius, had often talked about faking his death and joked about his eventual return. Sightings of Kaufman's boorish character Tony Clifton were reported at comedy clubs following the comedian's death in 1984 from a rare form of cancer at age 35. Even some of his closest friends never quite believed Kaufman died. A cult following ensued." CNN.com

I kind of like the idea that he might still be here.
Reading this article, I thought- I know A TON of people in this situation...
Young people in their 20s and early 30s who, in many cases, are college graduates "burdened with college debt or toiling in low-wage jobs, they are delaying careers, marriage and having children. Waiting anxiously for their lucky break, they are staying put and doubling up with roommates or living with Mom and dad, unable to make long-term plans or commit to buying a home — let alone pay a mortgage." yahoo.com
The new 2013 figures from the Census Bureau also found that:
*Migration among young people has declined. In other words, instead of moving to an area where one may be able to find better job prospects, young adults are opting to stay close to home.
*While homeownership across all age groups fell by 3 percentage points to 65 percent from 2007 to 2012, the drop-off among adults 25-29 was much larger — more than 6 percentage points, from 40.6 percent to 34.3 percent.
Are you or someone you know in this situation?

According to a new study, violence in movies has tripled since the 1980s – and films that were rated R back then would be rated PG-13 today.
I buy this completely. The other day '2 Broke Girls' was on at our house as we were in the kitchen and all I could think is- this is PrimeTime TV- I can't believe they can air this show at this time of night!
For example, movies released today, such as The Hunger Games and The Avengers, contain more violence than the R-rated films of the 1980s.
The study also took a look at the Bruce Willis Die Hard movies, such as Die Hard 2, which was rated R in the 1990s – and the much more violent Live Free or Die Hard, which was rated PG-13 in 2007.
The study opened the door, of course, for psychologists to weigh in about how watching violence on screen might increase aggression in real life … which we’ve been hearing about for decades. (Daily Mail)
