HGTVNYNow2015-MailegNYNow2015-Skulls1All things Viking and Scandinavia are hot in 2015, with Detroit and Cuba on deck for 2016, that according to interior design maven Genevieve Gorder, speaking at a HGTV event yesterday.

Which may explain the popularity of Maileg dolls (middle photo) from Demark. Or perhaps it was Maileg that helped to fuel the Scandinavia trend. They’ve been around for years, but seem to always remain new with endless variations.

Animal skulls (even inflatable) are hot at this year’s NY NOW. Interestingly, the people selling them, who we spoke with (including business owners), never heard of Georgia O’Keeffe.

Kids“What happened?”

GuinnessNitroIPA-JoseOrtegaCreating new possibilities for its famous yeast, Guinness, the Irish Dry Stout (that is “good for you”), is out with new varieties that should put smiles on the faces of Stout lovers around the world.

One of the great joys in life is a pint of Guinness after rigorous exercise. That will be especially true with the just released Guinness Nitro IPA, and its citrus finish.

and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes

and his heart was going like mad

and yes I said yes I will Yes.
