    1. An electric balloon-inflating machine that'll make prepping for parties soooo much easier. Using it is simple: just pinch your balloon over the nozzle and press it down to get the air flowing.

    "That's my hair right there! As you can see, it really picks up all of the annoyingly too-short hairs near the nape of my neck that I can't gather into a high ponytail or bun. (Don't mind the remaining front-framing wispies in the 'after' photo — those are there on purpose!) There is one main caveat though: I only use it if I know I'll be washing my hair either that night or the next, since it does still ~stiffen~ the areas of hair I use it on — but it's better than hairspray, in my opinion. Some reviewers say that they can just brush the gel out, but I'd prefer to just wash it out." —Sarah Han

    I recently went to a cottage with a few of my friends and indulged in a few adult beverages, and let me tell you, everyone loved these the morning after. They're a bit salty, but the fruit taste masks most of that (plus, it makes me more aware that I'm getting electrolytes). Heck, they're so tasty, I'd probably snack on one even if I wasn't hungover.
