A Woman Makes Herself a Wedding Dress Out of Taco Bell Wrappers

In case you haven’t heard, a new Taco Bell in Las Vegas has a WEDDING CHAPEL inside, and they’re running a contest where some couple will win a free dream wedding there.  At Taco Bell.  Who could POSSIBLY have that dream, right?

Um . . . this woman.  A woman named Diane Nguyen wanted her entry in the contest to stand out, so she got a bunch of unused taco and burrito wrappers from a Taco Bell . . . and made herself a WEDDING DRESS out of them.

She says she wanted to get married at Taco Bell because, quote, “It has been there through the years, from the after school runs, to late meals after work or a night of partying.”

Five Ways to Have a Better Work-Life Balance

If you’ve been feeling a little burned out at work lately, here are five things you can do to improve your work-life balance (so you don’t end up like this guy).

1.  Disconnect your work emails from your phone.  Chances are, you don’t NEED to respond to every email as soon as it comes in.  And if something is really important, they can call you.

2.  Stay out of office gossip.  Even just LISTENING to gossip from coworkers can make your mood more negative. And when you spend time around that negativity in the office, you become associated with it even if you aren’t actually DOING the gossiping.

3.  Ask for help when you need it.  That could mean from your coworkers, your supervisor, or even a therapist outside of work.  It doesn’t make you weak to admit you need a little support now and then.

4.  Ask for clarification of expectations.  It’s easy to feel stressed out and guilty when you don’t think you’re ever doing enough at work.  So ASK for clearer boundaries about exactly what’s expected of you . . . it’ll help you feel calmer AND  make the times you go “above and beyond” more apparent.

5.  Join a group fitness class.  Doing a kickboxing or yoga class after work gives you an outlet to burn off steam.  And with a group class, you’re likely to build camaraderie and make new friends.

Almost No One Walks Out of Target Without Buying a Bunch of Random Crap They Weren’t Planning on Getting

Have you ever gone shopping at Target with a plan to buy a few things, and actually walked out with JUST those things?  Or do you somehow ALWAYS find yourself buying more than you planned on?

According to a new survey, 90% of people say that pretty much every time they go to Target, they buy stuff they weren’t planning on getting.

And the sale stuff is the most common impulse buy.  83% say they’ve bought something at Target just because it had one of those red clearance price tags.
