Jeremy Scott for Smartcar

The LA Auto show is now officially under way – kicking off the festivities last night was an incredible event hosted by smart USA featuring celebrity designer Jeremy Scott. The world premiere of a customized showcar titled smart forjeremy took place at Jim Henson studios where a vehicle with Jeremy’s signature wings was revealed to the public. And for those interested in a car like this for themselves, this car is an electric vehicle that will be available to consumers in 2013.

Adding to the event experience was a performance by M.I.A. Who lit up the stage next to the car. Some fans in the audience included Perez Hilton, Liberty Ross, Cameron Silver and ASAP Rocky.

I love the smartcar since I first saw it in Germany on my 11th Grade trip. the forglossy smart will look white with a fun fur pink interior with the license plate UNQRBT. 🙂 Unique Rabbit. Yup!

About Foot Cardigan
Foot Cardigan was founded in 2012 by Bryan DeLuca, Tom Browning, Kelly Largent, Matt Fry and Matt McClard. The unique concept of a quirky socks subscription was conceived during a trip to Europe when DeLuca forgot to pack enough socks. The funky socks he purchased abroad were a big hit stateside, but nowhere to be found in local retail stores. The team put their heads together and Foot Cardigan, a monthly surprise sock subscription was born. Foot Cardigan now delights socks lovers around the nation monthly.

Travel with Your @DogVacay

Pet owners are undoubtedly obsessive about their furry friends. In fact, 81% of dog owners consider Fido a member of the family.  And yet, according to the APPA’s 2011-2012 National Pet Owners Survey, 75% of dog owners don’t take their pet with them when they travel.


Anyone with a dog will tell you the dread that comes with putting their dog away in a kennel cage for a week. Or the hassle of trying to find a pet-friendly hotel.

With the holidays coming, travel is set to see it’s standard bump of 54% for Thanksgiving and 23% during Christmas/New Years, and the obsessive 62% of us who own pets will be faced with the tough decision of what to do with our non-human family members.

A survey from TripAdvisor revealed that over 6 million dog owners just give up and don’t travel because of their pet, and 21% of those who do travel with their pet admit to having smuggled their pet into a hotel room.

This is the first year there’s a solution, and it’s thanks to the popularity of social networks like Facebook that have made it so easy for people with like-minds to find each other.

DogVacay is the new online community of qualified home dog boarding professionals that gives travelers deluxe accommodations for Fido if he needs to be left behind, or gives travelers a nearby home to leave their dogs if their hotel isn’t pet-friendly.

It’s like AirBNB for your dog! Check it out on http://dogvacay.com/
