Putting together a bucket list is kind of a sad exercise . . . it makes you realize all the stuff you WON'T ever really do, and makes you think about your own mortality.  But looking at OTHER people's bucket lists?  Why not!  Let's do it.

 

 

A new survey asked people to name their top bucket list items.  Here's the top 10 . . .

 

 

1.  Have a vacation home abroad.

 

2.  Learn a new language.

 

3.  Go on an exotic island vacation.

 

4.  Buy a house.

 

5.  Swim with dolphins.

 

6.  Drive Route 66.

 

7.  Ride in a hot air balloon.

 

8.  Visit the great pyramids.

 

9.  Go to Vegas.

 

10.  Visit Venice, Italy.

 

 

A few others that made the top 40 are learning an instrument . . . writing a novel . . . changing careers . . . getting a tattoo . . . owning a fancy watch . . . running a marathon . . . and bungee jumping.

She Was Sick Of Being Photoshopped, So She Did THIS

I came across this article about Colbie Caillat and how she is fed up with being photoshopped and decided to do something so imspiring to all women.  She released a song called "Try" that talks about today's beauty standards then created this video of women of all different types and strips away all the make up. 

If you haven't seen this then do yourself a favor and watch her video. It really opens your eyes to the fact that We don't have to be perfect to be beautiful and it's honestly taken me many many years to realize that.  (Read article here)

Watch the women in this video with their incredible transformation from start to finish. Be sure to grab a tissue.  I  bawled my eyes out....gotta love being prego.   Check out her video here

And now, some hard-hitting journalism on which ice cream flavors make people smile.  Next stop:  Pulitzer prize, baby.

 

 

Baskin-Robbins just ran a survey and asked people which flavors of ice cream make them the happiest.  I'm not 100% sure how that's different from people's FAVORITE ice cream flavor, but at least vanilla didn't win this time, so we'll take it.

 

 

The top 10 ice cream flavors that make people happiest are:  Chocolate . . . coffee . . . strawberry . . . rocky road . . . vanilla . . . cookie dough . . . mint chocolate chip . . . chocolate chip . . . praline . . . and rainbow sherbet.

 

 

Overall, 72% of people say deciding to get ice cream makes them happy even if they're stressed, preoccupied, or serious.  Let's not dig too deep into the sad, chubby psychology there and just enjoy our ice cream, okay?

Have you ever noticed how much Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks like Heath Ledger?  How about Mischa Barton and Elijah Wood?   

 

 

Believe it or not, they have VERY similar faces . . . which you wouldn't necessarily realize until you've seen half of each of their faces put together to create a single face.  Thankfully, the work has been done for us.

 

 

Other celebrities who look a lot more alike than you'd think include Carrie Underwood and Emily Osment . . . Ariana Grande and Alyssa Milano . . . Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel . . . and Rob Lowe and Ian Somerhalder.

 

 

One of the most surprising . . . and possibly the creepiest . . . is the one with the faces of Christopher Walken and a young Scarlett Johansson. 

Check out all these and more here.
