Wearable tech/jewelry to prevent harrassment and rape.

This is when the idea of wearable tech finally gets my attention. It's still a little to "tech-y" looking, but the idea behind the Guardian Angel jewelry is brilliant –
  • Press the button on your necklace or bracelet once to make your phone ring. 
  • Press it for three seconds, and it will text your emergency contact to let him/her know you need help.

I #standwithjetta against bullying.

This is Jenna.

After donating 14 inches of her hair to charity, she started getting harrassed by other kids. So, she and her mom are standing up to the bullying in a positive way.

These are the t-shirts they're selling for $20 "to raise awareness and use this opportunity to show that something positive can come from something negative. Proceeds will be split and donated to an anti-bullying non-profit and Wigs for Kids."

Secret floor vanity!

There is a 10-year-old inside of me that still gets ridiculously excited about stuff like this. I totally want a floor vanity now. Be sure to check out the rest of the features this architectural firm hid in this apartment's ceilings and floors.
