This week, we're getting together with J.Crew to give you a chance at a whirlwind weekend in New York, complete with two nights of downtown revelry and a $2000 J.Crew gift card. If for some reason you want to sleep, we'll also set you up in a penthouse suite at the Royalton.

Drink 'n' Stick Pinup Wine Labels

Because the heady, anything-can-happen buzz you get from sinking a good Shiraz isn't enough, the Aussies at Some Young Punks have upped the ante with their sexy pinup wine labels. Their latest takes things even further—you can dress the Bettie Page look-alike with dresses and bows. You can also undress her, which should prove as useful practice for later.

Maybe it's the changing leaves, maybe it's the tree-loving nymphet you met at the bar last week, but lately you've been feeling a back-to-nature vibe. The first place to start: your shades, of course. These all-wood frames are handmade in Portland, Oregon, so they should last you until the colors change back to green (and then some).

Amazing things, you've done a few: saved kittens from raging fires, steered your yacht to safety while on the stormy seas, watched an entire season of The Hills. And now, at last, is a place where you can post about them, 150 characters at a time. The beauty part: readers can rank your deeds on a scale of 1 to 200, so you'll finally have mathematical proof of your awesomeness.

Neck strain: it's a serious problem that's plaguing our nation, and one that you should avoid at all costs. The best method is, of course, preventative—for instance, using this alarm clock, which mounts sideways to your wall, so you can see how much you've overslept first thing in the morning. And then check out its handsome brushed aluminum casing and walnut wood, feel good about your tastes, and hit the snooze button.
