Guy Breaks Into Home, Eats Cereal And Then Leaves - A bizarre crime is being investigated in Ohio.
A man is accused of breaking into a home, eating frosted flakes and later passing out at an adult entertainment store. Police in Toledo say the guy startled a woman and her mother recently at the home . One of the women woke up to him eating in her bedroom. He said “hi” then went to the kitchen where both women saw him eating Frosted Flakes. He only took an ID card from the home.
Then, the man ended up at an adult store where he was then kicked out of after passing out at one of the viewing booths. He also left his ID behind, which made it easy for officials to identify home.
Loved Ones Are a Dieter’s Worst Enemy
One in four Americans has failed a diet because their partner led them astray, according to new research.
A survey examining how and why our attempts to eat healthily and lose weight often fail found a surprisingly high number of diets come undone because of a partner leading us into temptation.
From eating irresistible treats and snacks in front of us to ordering takeout or wanting us to have drinks, responses showed 24 percent of people blame their partner for derailing a diet.
The results emerged from a survey conducted by OnePoll, in conjunction with Isopure, which looked into the dieting successes and failures of 2,000 Americans.
With people mindful of their summer bodies, responses showed top reasons people fail diets are lack of time to plan meals, having treats around the holidays, social gatherings, treating themselves and stress around work.
Even though many reasons behind diet failures are legitimate, there are some that appear to be simply based on temptation. Responses showed that 38 percent of survey respondents failed on a diet because they couldn’t resist a delicious treat.
Another 32 percent claim that healthy food is simply too expensive and so their bank account causes them to reach for a less than healthy snack. Reaching for a feel-good food seems to be a common way for 42 percent of survey respondents to deal with stress.
Saturday is the day that a diet is most likely to come to a crashing halt for survey participants. After breaking a diet, many admit to feeling disappointed, frustrated, upset, annoyed and angry.
As a result, it’s no wonder that two in five survey respondents get fed up with clothes that no longer fit or look good. But it’s more than simply sticking to a diet that contributes to a healthy lifestyle — sleep, fitness and hydration are also important.

- Treats around the holidays
- Social gatherings
- Treating yourself mentally

Now There’s A Pool Float For People With Boobs
Ladies with large boobs know how uncomfortable it is to lay on their chests, so lounging on a pool float pretty much has to be done on their backs. But one British lingerie company is changing all that with their new float made just for gals with big chests. Bravissimo, who’s pledge is to “inspire big-boobed women to feel amazing,” has created a pool float with cutouts for the girls.
The Bravissimo Lilo - which is the British term for pool lounger - has built in “cup holders” for boobs so you can float as long as you like on your tummy without choking on your cans. And the funny thing is, it all started as an April Fool’s joke.
“When we posted on our social networks an April Fools’ joke about developing a pool float with room for your boobs, we were not expecting hundreds of you to tell us that you really, really wanted one… but your reaction made it clear that we had to do it!” Bravissimo posted on their website. And they actually listened to what women want and made it happen. Now that’s impressive.
For $45 you can be the proud owner of the float for big boobs, and shipping is $5 extra to get it to the U.S., but can you really put a price on comfort? Now if someone would just do this with a mattress, we could get the best night’s sleep ever.Source: Scary Mommy
Mom’s Shaving Cream Sunburn Hack Is Going Viral
acebook user Cindi Allen-Stewart recently shared her DIY sunburn hack in a post with friends. But it didn’t just help a few of her besties, her post blew up, with almost 50,000 comments and more than 220,000 shares. So what’s her secret? Shaving cream.
But not just any shaving cream will do. To soothe a sunburn, Allen-Stewart’s tip is slather on some menthol shaving cream. She posted pics of her lobster-red back fading to a less intense blush after spending an hour coated in the foamy stuff. Her advice is to leave the shaving cream on for 30 minutes and then wash it off in a lukewarm shower. If the burn is still sore the next day, do it again.
"It may seem like it's a strange shaving ritual, but trust me! Don't rub it in, just let it sit on your skin,” Allen-Stewart writes. “It will start bringing all that heat out (you'll be able to feel it). You may feel like you are itchy too, but that's a good thing! Itching means healing.”
Dermatologists agree that menthol will cool the skin, so it helps with the discomfort. And dermatologist Howard Sobel adds, “If there is aloe in the shaving cream, it will work as an anti-inflammatory and help relieve the irritation of burnt skin.” So next time you get a sunburn, slather on the menthol shaving cream.
