It happens to the best of us: we invite over a guest, but then realize we have dirty dishes in the kitchen, a dusty living room, etc. You can’t really call and cancel, and even if you tried to and explained to your friend why you were cancelling, they’d laugh and say, “No, no, don’t worry about it, I don’t care about a mess.” That said, here are five quick, easy ways to make your house look clean and presentable, even if it’s not perfect.

Can you really patent a kiss?  Romance novel publisher Harlequin is going to give a shot.

They are looking to patent a specific kind of kiss. A press release says it is a way for “two people to reciprocate their romantic feelings toward one another in a manner that deepens attachment, provides pleasure and promotes physical and emotional well-being- the essential romantic kiss.

Michelle Renaud, head of the Preservation of the Kiss office at Harlequin believes they have a basis with which to seek the patent.  Her “division of Harlequin exists to celebrate all things related to kissing”

Have you ever wondered why soda cans are so cumbersome and wide?  Okay, probably not, but now, you’ll have the option of drinking out of what Diet Pepsi is calling a “Skinny Can” that is designed to “celebrate beautiful, confident women.” Now, maybe it’s just me, but confident women don’t worry about whether their soda can makes their hand look fat. Moving on…

The new can stands at just over six inches in height and will make its debut at New York’s Fall 2011 fashion week later this month (fall fashion in February…), but it won’t hit grocery stores until March.

Holidays are prime time for entertaining.  One of the cornerstones of a good party is a well stocked bar.

To put one together requires a trip to the local liquor store.  You will want to have on hand a good bottle of vodka, gin, scotch and rum.  The brands don’t always have to be top shelf, buy what your budget will allow.  Bacardi Rum, Dewar’s Scotch Whiskey, Absolute Vodka, and London Dry Gin are all good starting points.  Don’t forget the wine or beer. You will want both red and white varietals; as well a few choices of beer, domestic and imported would be a great touch.

Jewelry By RUX Offers Ultra-Personalized Accessories

Jewelry company RUX realizes the idea that a piece of jewelry is often very personal. Be it a wedding band, a grandmother's pearl necklace, or a vintage bracelet, people often wear pieces of jewelry that mean something to them. RUX is taking it one step further – by providing just a photograph of a loved one, they can create a 3D portrait of a person’s profile, superimposed into a bracelet or a ring.  And while the idea is pretty cool, it comes with a hefty price tag – the prices start at $350 for a bracelet (which is just a resin bangle) and $1700 for an 18K gold or platinum ring. 

As far as the bracelets go – they’re rather chunky and gaudy, and because they’re as big as they are, it’s hard to say if anyone would notice that they’re actually a profile.  The rings, on the other hand, would be a nice alternative to a plain gold/platinum band if you were getting married. I really like the idea of the profile ring, even though it is rather pricey.

What do you guys think? Would you wear profile jewelry?
