…Paris Hilton is running for president?

Though it’s easy to dismiss her as a dumb blond that just got lucky, I’ve always felt that Paris Hilton might just have us all fooled. She’s taken a rich father, good looks, and a hard partying lifestyle and managed to turn herself into a brand name, a self-made millionaire, and a media darling by just being Paris. She’s survived a sex tape, a prison stint, more controversy and accusations than a Michael Jackson day care center, and yet still manages to capture headlines at will.

Her latest move into the spotlight involved a brief and unapproved clip in the middle of a John McCain ad.

Not to be outdone, Paris fired back with an ad of her own, announcing her run for presidency, and a surprisingly fluid solution to the gas crisis.

Never one to waste an opportunity, she also managed to squeeze in a full minute of bikini-clad eye candy, and enough “that’s hot” to make a mix tape.

Think she doesn’t know where her money making talents are?

…It’s Things Thursday: Ruby?

Featuring carbon fiber shells, chrome-plated trim, lambskin lining, steel badges, and a rear fin inspired by the helmets worn by knights of old, Les Ateliers Ruby’s Ruby line is “the leading brand for exceptional accessories committed to keeping you on the move”.

    Inspired by Steve McQueen, science fiction and the great tradition of French luxury, Jerome Coste has created Ruby, a brand which guarantees good looks and safety for everyday heroes and heroines.

With Ruby, safety becomes fashionable once again.

…The Sorapot is the perfect teapot?

Sorapot

The Sorapot by Joey Roth has taken the design world by storm by combining an architectural shape and simple functionality into a teapot that “brings tea’s quiet beauty into sharp focus.

It’s made from 304 stainless steel, borosilicate glass (Pyrex), and food-grade silicone for long lasting good looks, and “articulates the ritual of tea making in a thoroughly modern way”.

In addition to good looks, the Sorapot also stays green with a sustainable approach to packaging, including post-consumer recycled cardboard and molded pulp, natural jute rope, and the avoidance of tape or staples. (See TreeHugger for more details on the packaging.)

If you agree that this just might be the perfect teapot, then head on over to the site with &179 in hand, and one can be yours.
