  • Free Slurpees. This just in from the lovely people over at OC Deals. Mark your calendars for July 11 when 7-Eleven stores will celebrate Slurpee Day by handing out 1000 free 7.11-oz Slurpees in any flavor from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m., or until supplies last. For some reason, whenever I think of Slurpees, I think of that scene from Encino Man. You know, the caveman movie with Brendan Fraser, Pauly Shore and the chubby hobbit that is surprisingly full of stereotypes for a movie made in the ’90s? I mean, the caveman accent is WAY off. Here’s the scene to jog your memory:

After seeing all the awesome transformations, I remembered that there are tons of videos online that could help even the most clueless of us(*Blawgirl raises hand sheepishly*) achieve a professional look. Here are a couple of videos from hosts I like, but definitely poke around to find someone who shares your same makeup approach (simple and light, dark and glamorous, etc.) There are also tons of hair tutorials out there too! Guys, if you’ve ever wondered what takes some of us so long to get ready, watch these videos.

  • $26 Hug Me Pillow. After you drive away your significant other with your law school-related hissy fits (j/k. or am I?), you might want something to cuddle up to. Like the Hug Me Pillow. Overstock.com has this pillow, which is shaped like an arm attached to half a torso, for $25.97 (Was: $39.90). (via DealNews) Loved this review: “I bought this pillow to keep my company on nights when my husband, a correspondent for the Trans-Alaskan News Network, was out of town. The pillow exceeded even my wildest expectations. I’m told the pillow was modeled after Brad Pitt, and I believe it! When I first nestled against the soft, but firm chest of my new ‘husband’ I slept better than I ever had before. Now I don’t mind when my husband goes out of town!” Don’t know if that’s funny or sad. Another option is finding a free hugs campaign spot near you! Here’s a video of the free hugs campaign in China:

Whoops. Wrong video. Here’s the right one!
