“You Can Register [To Vote] While You’re Pooping”
Funnywoman Sarah Silverman said it best.
If you haven’t registered to vote, you should. It’s so quick. It’s SO EASY!
If you care about health care, gay rights, women’s rights, the right to choose, the first, second, third ammendments, gun control, the list goes on…you should vote.
Or if you don’t then, DON’T VOTE:
But you should vote. And you should care. Because we are so lucky to live in a country where we have the choice.
Leonardo DiCaprio, will i. am, Tobey Maguire, and Forest Whitaker have created public service announcements to encourage American youth to register to vote.
The non-partisan PSAs, produced by DiCaprios Appian Way, were created to engage and inspire young people to register and vote and participate in the upcoming election.

Ku Ku For Ty Ku
So being a celebrity & lifestyle blogger, we feel it is our duty to inform you about happenings, ideas, meanderings, and products that we think are absolutely fabulous…
And we’re totally obsessed with Ty-Ku, the sake-based licquor.
In fact, we found out about Ty-Ku a few years back when we were headed to a friends birthday soiree at his apartment and totally forgot a gift. So what to do??? We stopped into the liquor store and bought the first thing that caught our eye… The shape of the bottle is aesthetically beautiful and – did we mention it lights up?
So then we made our friend open it once we were there and we were blown away by the unusal and thrilling taste. We drank it straight – no mixers or anything!
As if stumbling upon this liquor isn’t enough of a fairy tale… just last week we met the co-founder of the brand, Kirk Spahn, and we’re totally blown away by him as a person, the process (the highs and lows) of creating the company, the brainstorming process that went into creating this unique liquor, and his belief in his product.
What we found out may be hard to believe, and we do understand that “alcohol” and “healthy” is an oxymoron, but Ty-Ku has less sugar & lower calories than Grand Marnier, Cointreau, Tripe Sec, Chambord, Mirdori, St. Germain, etc! There are 72 calories per 1.5 fl oz in Ty-Ku compared to, say, Triple Sec that has 125!
Um….we’re gonna stick with Ty-Ku!
We’re not the only fabulous people diggin’ Ty Ku….
