This Light Take On Pizza Bites Is About To Become Your Poolside Go-To!

You know what’s the worst? Chilling by the pool at a cookout on a sweltering day and being assaulted with an onslaught of heavy food.

Burgers are cool in theory, but when you’re drowning in your own sweat, the idea of scarfing down a greasy, fatty burger becomes less appealing by the second. The same goes for pizza. I was swimming at my apartment complex the other day when it was 95 degrees out and I almost melted when some guy opened up a steaming box of pizza.

But then it hit me. Going three months without pizza should be illegal and we should just deal with the heaviness that accompanies everyone’s favorite meal. Or should we? Someone prayed to the summer gods for a solution, and it comes to us today in the form of these zucchini pizza bites that bring all of the cheese and none of the gut-busting agony.

Stay tuned until the end if you want to hear a song that’s truly not good at all.

I don’t know about you, but I have a date with some zucchini, a whole lot of sunscreen, and a swimming pool.

If You’re Stuck In A Boring Meeting, Here’s How You Can Keep Yourself Entertained

When it comes to tech accessories, there are some that warrant spending money, and some that don’t.

Phone stands tend to fall into the latter category. Although they’re helpful when you want to have a hands-free smartphone experience, they’re not usually worth the price.

Thankfully, there’s a way around that problem. If you have a piece of paper on hand during your next staff meeting, flight, or lazy day at home, you can make your own phone stand! The act of making it is honestly just as amusing as the cat videos you’ll watch when you use it. Sure, it won’t be as pretty as the ones you can get at the mall, but it’ll get the job done.

I don’t think that could’ve been any easier. Save your money for what’s really important — sweet headphones and pretty iPhone cases!

11 Brilliant Uses For Deodorant That Have Nothing To Do With Armpits

Summer is right around the corner, and it’s about to get sweaty up in here.

It’s time to stock up on your favorite, tried-and-true deodorant, friends. Most of us slap on the stuff to ensure that we can still go out in public without it becoming a mortifying experience, but did you know that you could put your antiperspirant to good use outside the realm of armpits?

Whether you need to remove nail polish or cut down on shoe-induced blisters, these ingenious uses for deodorant are about to make your life so much easier.

1. If you run out of primer and your oily face makes a mess of all that pretty makeup, apply a thin layer of deodorant to areas where you get shiny before putting on foundation.
