Share on Facebook

I once knew someone who rejected anything popular because she thought it made her seem more cool. I always thought it made her seem more like she was missing out. It’s fun to jump on the bandwagon, and even more fun to be one of the first to try an emerging, trending product.

If you’re a vegetarian (or just trying to eat healthier), you’ll want to try this new veggie burger press. Another hot new item flying off the Amazon shelves is this lip exfoliating tool. And please believe me when I say that you’re going to want your very own chork. Read on for more of the latest, trendiest, cleverest products you can order today.

Avocados Stay Fresh and Green With This Avocado Saver

Avocados are one of my favorite foods, but they’re a bit high-maintenance, don’t you think? If you don’t protect a cut avocado from oxygen, it bruises to an unappetizing brown in a matter of hours.
