Forget Democrat versus Republican. The debate of the century takes place right here, right now, over a bag of popcorn-flavored candy.
Some despise it with a hate reserved for Nazi sympathizers and rabid ferrets. Others relish it like sturgeon caviar and foie gras. When it comes to this Buttered Popcorn Bulk Bag ($6), there is no middle ground.

Oh Lands' End. You've made us hesitate. We've been writing off down vests for years now, but this shiny metallic option ($59) you've unveiled this season? We're kinda digging it. Its puff is not too... puffy, and the slate color keeps the shine from getting too blinding, so we're left with a pretty solid option for those in between cold days. Worn with a hat and mittens, a pair of bright colored skinnies, and a fun graphic sweater, we think it'll look pretty darn excellent!

This blush ($12) may be called Good Girl, but you'll hardly feel like a prude what with all the attention you'll attract once you sweep it onto your cheeks.

The cloudberry is yet another rare plant that apparently has amazing properties that help your skin look like a baby's bottom. It grows only in the Arctic Circle, and contains numerous fatty acids and antioxidizing vitamins to get that skin producing collagen and regenerating cells. We guess when you deal with temperatures that cold, plants are going to pull out all the stops to survive - and what's good for them is usually good for us.

Sure, you could shell out for a fancy engraved set of cheese spreaders, but then you'd be stuck serving Brie, cheddar, and Swiss for the rest of your life. Where's the fun in that?

Use it to expand your dairy horizons.

Say goodbye to your hot pinks and your corals, ladies - it's time to bust out the rich, cool colors for the cooler months.
