You should be totally jealous. “Why?”, you ask. Let me lay it out for ya. I was fortunate enough to go camping this weekend. Everyone knows camping is the greatest and that there are some requirements for your nighttime to be the right time: 1) fire, 2) starlight, and 3) a marshmallow heating up just right in order to fulfill its duty in between graham and chocolate. To make your envy of me reach an all time high, I have one of these magnificent combinations of cocoa, gluten, and sugar in my belly. Daaaaaaaaang—that is impressive.

There really is something magical about s’mores. Am I right, or am I right? No matter your marshmallow cooking style, when you’re done with your first, it will be hard not to desire more of that gooey goodness. As if s’mores aren’t hard enough to resist, camping in and of it self is one of the most relaxing things. It is so refreshing to get back in touch with nature and escape from our ecologically large footprint lifestyles. It is difficult to remind ourselves of the animals’ habitats we should be conserving while it is important to remember that we are not the only creatures out there.

We affect so much with our lifestyle here in the U.S. It is up to us to live as one with the world around us. Go camping and eat s’mores. [via]

2012′s Best Days for Holiday Shopping [infographic]

Yeah that’s right, I’m doing it. I’m posting a Christmas infographic before Thanksgiving. I don’t even care. You gotta deal with it. Today’s graphic shows the best days to shop online for gadgets and gifts. With the average american spending 700 dollars on presents, saving a few bucks here and there can really add up.

I know you have heard of the Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays, but did you know about Small Business Saturday? I didn’t, but it seems the day after Black Friday, the 24th, 68 out of 100 dollars spent on that day go to small businesses. That’s awesome.

There is one problem I have with the the so-called ‘Free Shipping Day’. Even though over 1700 businesses have agreed to have free shipping on December 17th, I know for a fact they will be raising their prices to cover the shipping costs. Shipping anything on Christmas Eve will cost a fortune – this Free Shipping Day is a myth.

Remember not to buy any books, movies or music until after the 25th. These items get inflated before the big day, but tend to drop back to a reasonable cost after St. Nick comes to visit. [Via]

So I’ve been on this stupid diet in hopes of dropping a few pounds, but after reading this infographic, I ditched it and bought myself a candy bar. All the talk about chocolate, and caramel with nuts,  really made me crave some sugar. So I’m sorry in advance if this infographic inspires you to cheat on you diet also.

Today’s infographic is actually really interesting, it gives you 10 facts about your most favorite snacks. Who would have known that Pringles aren’t potato chips?! Mind. Blown. I was also really impressed with the pop rock information. I’v always wondered how those little things worked. Enjoy today’s infographic, perhaps you can use the information to impress your friends or win your next trivia game. [via]

The internet is a big place. Since it’s inception, the world wide web has become literally a world unto it’s own. Today, there are 2.4 billion internet users. That’s double what it was compared to the internet population in 2007. In addition to these users, the content is matched tenfold. It would take 7 million dvds for each hour the internet has existed to capture all of that data. So much information that it is estimated that by 2063 there will 4 times the amount it is today. That’s almost 966 exabytes. psst 1000 gigabytes = 1 terabyte, 1 exabyte = 1,000,000 terabytes! That’s a TON of information. This will take an incredible amount of energy to store and power. In fact, the internet itself uses about 1.5% of global electricity. All that electricity’s got to come from somewhere. This infographic delves into the unintended consequences that comes with all of the Cat memes and tweets that we hold so dear to our digital hearts. We should be informed and aware of how our internet is powered and how that power affects our world, for better and for worse. [via]

The Perks of Working at Home [infographic]

As a recent grad (Can I still say that? I graduated in May.) with a long commute, working from home seems like a dream. I go into the office Monday through Friday, working from my desk and collaborating with my co workers. While this is helpful for our marketing department, as our ideas are constantly flowing, it is a bit detrimental to my car milage and my gas bill. I will continue to work in the office, but it is great to know that working from home has become an option.

Working from home can save you money, time and ultimately make you a happier worker. If your company allows it and you can swing it, working form home one or two days a week sounds like a dream. Pop in a k-cup, work all morning, whip up a salad and work all afternoon. To top it off, no hour long commute home! Can’t a girl dream… [Via]
