Gia – from Bachelor and Bachelor Pad – Passed Away
Earlier this week TMZ reported that Gia was taken to the hospital because of a “serious emergency medical event.” Later in the week we found out that the cause of death was suicide. So sad! She was definitely a fan fave.

Absolut Vodka Launches Redesign of Flavor Labels
One of our favorite Vodka brands announced a redesign of their flavored vodka labels. According to AdAge, the Absolut vodka redesign doesn’t use fruit to signify a fruit flavor, instead “plays up symbolism and myths for each flavor’s essence.” We like it!
