The Dø At Last

Upon their successful first album, The Dø has just released their second music video ‘At last‘. Watch out for oranges, because you get many of them in this video. The story revolve around people in the dance floor with unwhole oranges trying to find the remainding half/ perfect match. The smart thing is that the video points out the ‘perfect match’ dose not necessarily be who you want it to be. You see people fighting just to try to squeeze their oranges to make it fit. Of course, the perfect match may also be of the same sex or a totally different age group, because there are no rules.

Enjoy Your Home Spa

We all love to pamper ourselves once in a while don’t we? It helps us relax and leaves our skin healthy and smooth, but not all of us have spa appointments all planned out in our schedules and sometimes the cost can be a bitch. Besides, what’s better to do at home than having a nice up of tea, a book you enjoy and a DIY home spa when it’s raining outside?

For your body:

Milk Bath
You’ll need:

* 8 cups powdered milk
* 1 cup oatmeal
* 1 cup ground almonds
* 1 cup cornmeal

Mix the ingredients together and store in a sealed container. When you’re ready to use it, scoop the desired amount onto a cheesecloth (or something like a J-Cloth) and tie it securely. Drop it into the bathtub before filling it with water. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil for added relaxation. A milk bath keeps your body moisturized and soft.

Papaya Body Polish
The papaya contains enzymes that soften and revitalize the skin when absorbed and help remove dead, flaking skin.

All you need to do is puree a ripe papaya (including the skin) and spread it over your body without rubbing. Wrap yourself in a plastic sheet for 20 minutes and allow your body to sweat. Wash it off and enjoy your soft skin!

For your Face:

Avocado Mask

Mash the creamy insides of one avocado into a soft paste and apply to your face using the avocado pit to massage the paste into your skin using small, upward, circular motions. Leave on for a few minutes then wash off with warm water. Avocados are naturally rich in vitamin E and leave your skin feeling soft.

The Biggest Mentos-Coke Explosion

Around 1500 students from Belgium attempt to break a world record by dropping a mint sweet into bottles of Coca Cola. They tried to out-fizz the previous record for so-called Mentos fountains by simultaneously putting Mentos mints into bottles of the soft drink.

To Dø or not To Dø

Named after the first (and last) note on the music scale, The Dø is the quirky French-Finnish duo of Olivia B.Merilahti (vocals) and Dan Levy (guitar, synths). They explain that they are on a clear mission to crank out a sound that fills the void in popular music in their biography. “[Our music] spans the space between the rock and the roll, with wholesomeness & simplicity that excite like electricity,” the band says.

Dominated by Olivia’s idiosyncratic vocals, their music has an off the wall quality that is very refreshing. Listen to and watch video of the group’s European hit single “On My Shoulder” above.
