Alright YouTube fans, you’re in for a special treat. I went to my first VidCon yesterday, and it was AMAZING. Basically, VidCon is like Comic Con, but for online videos! I got to meet and chat with a bunch of YouTube stars yesterday. The best thing is, yesterday was only Day 1! Going back for Day 2 in a couple of hours! In the meantime, watch Parts 1-3 below! Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe. It really does help (as I learned at Vidcon…haha)
My froyo toppings of choice include fresh strawberries, mangos, and of course, mochi, but what if the mochi was found next to tomatoes? Well, maybe this topping isn’t for the froyo we know and love, but is for something new that Pinkberry is offering.
Pinkberry is going Greek.
No, the Los Angeles-based yogurt chain Pinkberry isn’t joining a UCLA frat; they’re hopping on the bandwagon and serving nonfat Greek yogurt!
The company — whose first store opened in West Hollywood in 2005 — is making a surprising move in a number of ways. While Pinkberry is known for its upscale frozen yogurt, the Greek yogurt that they’re starting to sell is unfrozen.
That’s right, Pinkberry has started to serve Greek yogurt, which has significantly risen in popularity. The store is also planning on selling coffee, trying to make it THE place to stop for breakfast.
As much as I used to love Pinkberry, I’ve skipped over it a few times in favor of its cheaper (but just as delicious) competitor, Yogurtland. However, I do love Greek yogurt, so maybe it’s time to go back to Pinkberry?
What do you think of Pinkberry’s newest offerings?

In a New York City subway, one of the steps in a staircase is not like the other: it is a fraction of an inch higher than the other steps. While it may be a small difference, it’s enough to cause people to trip over the unique step. One person made this observation, and decided to film it.
Once upon a time, when McDonald’s introduced their line of sandwiches known as the McGriddles, I thought having a breakfast sandwich with syrupy pancakes as buns would be horrible. Cut to a few years later, when I actually tried one, and I found out the mix of salty and sweet was quite delicious.
Now, The Huffington Post shows us that someone has taken these weird sandwich hybrids to a new level.
After listening to radio hosts discuss the idea of using a Cinnabon as a bun for a hamburger, Nick of DudeFoods.com decided he had to try it for real. So, he bought a Cinnabon, grilled a half-pound hamburger and fried some bacon. Then, he created The Cinnaburger.
And, he loved it. He found that letting the burger sit for a few minutes before eating actually worked out well, as the burger patty soaked up more frosting, which for him was apparently a good thing.
Despite the fact that it looks insanely bizarre, I probably would try a few bites of this should it ever end up being in front of my face. Would you try it?
News bloopers are great, and this one is no exception.
Ever made a dish with a bunch of eggs and wished there was something you could do with the eggshells besides throwing them away? Well, thanks to Stylelist, here are some things you can do with those shells!
Did you know that eggshells are predominately made of calcium carbonate — the active ingredient in lime — as well as other nutrients for plants? Eggshells make a great natural fertilizer of sorts. Whether you break the shells up and sprinkle them on top of a plant, or mix a few into potting soil, your plant will thank you.

Do you have a cup or travel mug that has been stained by your favorite warm beverage? Grind up some eggshells and drop them in the drinkware filled with warm water. Let it sit over night, and the egg shell will absorb the stain.
Remember how we said that egg shells make great fertilizer? Use egg shells to start seeds. Fill the egg shell half with soil and the seed, then plant directly into the ground (or into the pot). As the plant develops and the shell breaks down, it provides the seedling with plenty of nutrients.
To find out more uses for eggshells, head on over to Stylelist.
I’ll admit, even though the whole point of social media is to blast out messages to many people at a time, there are times when someone will come up to me and say, “Hey, I saw your post on Facebook!” and I’ll be completely surprised that they noticed my post. Sometimes we post out of boredom, sometimes annoyance, and sometimes rage. Well, there is a website out there created to show people just how easy it is to see what you’re saying online.
On WeKnowWhatYoureDoing.com, you can see main topics that are social media no-nos, but people are still caught posting them anyway. The site doesn’t shy away from posting incriminating messages from actual people, either. This website might seem like an invasion of privacy, but the posts featured on this site are pulled from PUBLIC profiles.
So, moral of the story, watch what you say online, because someone is always watching.
Thanks to vistatecnologica for the tip!
Watch as I pretend to know what I’m doing in the kitchen, all while professing my love for The Hunger Games!
Because we can’t get enough of Obama “singing,” here is our president taking on Justin Bieber!

I don’t know, I don’t sense anything shady going on here. What do you think?
