Tater Tot is hardcore wishing he was back on the beach in Cabo San Lucas working on his tan.

different styles, same ride

ARGH!!! How could I have forgotten my FAVORITE TIME OF THE ENTIRE YEAR?!?!'s ok...we're only 12 days into the month. We can still do this. And by "we" I mean all the bros out there.

Because you know what time it is? It's MOVEMBER TIME!!!

Movember rules so hardcore. Last year in Shanghai I went to a Movember celebration with a bunch of Aussies, the creators of the annual month-long celebration of the 'stache.

...oh and it benefits some men's health issues blah blah.

Over the years, the mustache has gotten a lot of criticism. But you know what I have to say to all those 'stache trashers out there? Ya'll are just bitter 'cause you can't grow one. Ya, I said it.

I strongly encourage everyone to participate! After all, it's for a good cause and it's also mighty, mighty fine. On top of all that, I'd like to take a moment to announce that I am an official member of the American Mustache Institute which works at "promoting the rights of, and fighting discrimination against, mustached Americans by promoting the growth, care, and culture of the mustache."

So, do your duty as men, grow a 'stache this month and wear it with these sexy fellas:

Michael Imperioli (aka Christopher Moltisanti from The Sopranos)
shows us that a retro mustache can be both authoritative and adorable. Yum!

Mustaches are a great complement to "Come hither" eyes
as modeled by James Franco.

Orland Bloom proves there ain't nothin' nasty 'bout a 1970s porno mustachy.

Jude Law demonstrates that like a great pair of wayfarers or a thin scarf,
mustaches are the perfect accessory to any outfit. They also
help in detracting from receding hairlines.

Brad Pitt proves that it is indeed possible for him to
get more attractive than he already was--just add a 'stache and voila!

shut the door. have a seat.

Draper is dreamy, but Sterling is sassy. I like that in a man. Plus, he's totally rockin' the Bill Clinton salt n' pepper hair. With, well, slightly more salt than pepper. But still, I dig.

Pretty decent collection of Sterling's one-liners but I can't believe they left out one of my favorites from this season: "...and now you're sniffing around because I have a golden pork chop dangling from my neck." I'm a vegetarian...but a dangling golden pork chop? Don't think even I could resist that.

super cute packaging

I found this awesome site called box vox...their whole shtick is "packaging as content" aka awesome boxes, wrappers, and cans.

I love when a company spends time on their packaging to make it creative, clever, or gorgeous. I like "gorgeous" packaging for bath & body products because they're often out on display, but overall I'm more of a "clever" packaging fan. Clearly, I need these candies ASAP:

blame it on the alcohol

Yesterday was AMAZING!!! My cousin looked absolutely gorgeous, the wedding was beautiful, and the reception was so much fun. A little too much fun, in fact. Needless to say, I spent the last few hours on the bathroom floor rather than on the dance floor.

I can't wait to see the professional are a couple of my favorite shots of the bride from my crappy little camera:
