How to Save Money on Vodka

Yes. You read that right. You can now save money on your beloved beverage. 
A group of college kids (obviously, right?) from Denison University, demonstrated a beautiful experiment that filters the vodka and saves us from having to buy the more expensive booze for the better quality flavor. For real?!

I have an expensive taste, as most do when it comes to alcohol. Although, it's difficult to bring myself to spend that kind of money on it. Now there is a perfect solution for those on a tighter budget, or just want to save some extra cash!
Since the cheap vodka companies don't do the extra filtering in their bottles, your Brita Pitcher can now do it for you. That's right. Grab the cheapest vodka you see on the shelf, and filter it through the water filtration system. Not only will it taste better, but it's a cleaner vodka. Nice! Whether you filter it through once, or multiple times, you'll get some sort of upgrade in your drink without having to pay for it.

Read the article yourself, and experience a shot-by-shot post of the drinking experiment. I hope you enjoy & please drink responsibly!

SMH Kim & Kanye

Okay, okay. We all know how controversial KimYe is.

Apparently, Kim Kardashian West claimed to have been robbed at gunpoint in her Paris apartment for $11 million in jewelry & phones. 
May I add that Kim is constantly on snapchat showing off her jewels? Hmm. Not very smart. 

No but in all seriousness, I find the whole story hard to believe. So Kim was just walking around Paris, without her security? Odd. 
She claimed to have been blindfolded and tied up. But managed to free herself and flee the scene? That's totally legit, right? 


On the other side of this story, Kanye West claimed back in February that he was $53 million in debt. 
Was this an insurance scam?

The answer is yes.

I just find it a little hard to believe someone so famous would walk around without their security. How strange is that? 
Kim confessed already! & is remaining silent on all of her social media accounts.
Read more about it here.
