Well it was a short week but a busy one as well. Guru Dan T returned from the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas and regaled us with tales of the coolest gadgets and gizmo’s that are coming out in 2012. We got to hob nob with celebrities, i.e Jessica Alba and her new eco-friendly product launch (more on that later). And to top it all off, today is National Cheese Lover’s Day. I’m not usually one for “National” this and that day, but THIS is a holiday I can really get behind.

While Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, we got some great tips from one of our favorite bloggers on how to spend the holiday with friends. And in other news, here’s a quick shout out to all of you born under the sign of Aquarius (Jan 20–Feb 18) Happy Birthday. Cue this song.
