  • Why Does She Look So Old?

    Posted by Rachel Reinke

    Kate, Duchess of Cambridge had the unveling of her official portrait at the National Portrait Gallery earlier today and here it is.

    Doesn't she look at little "aged"?  What's with the shadows and wrinkles around her eyes that make her look older than she really is?  Don't get me wrong, she still looks gorgeous, but I think this could have been a little better.  What do you think?

  • How Often Do You Change Your Sheets?

    Posted by Rachel Reinke

    According to a new survey by a British store called Dunelm Mill, nearly one in five people change their sheets only once a month, or less.

     

    --Here's how often people wash the sheets on their bed:  

     

    #1.)  Two in five people wash their sheets every week . . . and MEN are slightly more likely than women to wash them that often.

     

    #2.)  One in three change their sheets every two weeks. 

     

     #3.)  A little less than one in five . . . 17% . . . do it every month, or even LESS frequently.

     

    #4.)  6% of us wash them MORE than once a week.

     

    #5.)  And 1% of us only wash our sheets ONCE a YEAR.

     

     

    So who else is going to wash their sheets today besides me?
