The saying goes that we're all made of stardust, and the Constellations Collection may very well have been cut straight from the heavenly bodies that line our night sky. Danish born Henriette Lofstrom, whose past work tends to have a geometric-meets-tribal-meets-Stargate feel, designed these geometric shaped pieces in gold and palladium, perfect for the celestial-obsessed jewelry hound that needs a strong architectural piece to top off an outfit. With earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings, there's a little something for everyone. Check out a few more images of the collection in the gallery!

Nintendo announced that New Super Mario Bros. 2 will launch in the US in August for the 3DS. There were few details given for the next level in the Super Mario Bros. series, but we know that it will feature Mario, Luigi, and "loads of other favorite characters." It's likely that we'll get a peek at the game in action at this year's E3 expo, but until then, check out the few screenshots in the gallery!
If you were to stop and go through the quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies weighing down your purse or cluttering up your car cup holder, how much do you think you'd collect? $10? $25? Well, according to the experts at Coinstar, the average amount cashed in for eCertificates and/or gift cards at their coin kiosks is a whopping $56 — twice as much as people think they have. Talk about a nice, unexpected chunk of change as we head into the holiday season (especially since so many of us go over budget on holiday shopping!).
Our advice to you: make every coin count! Take a few minutes to grab all the spare change "jingle-belling" in your purses, pockets, car, and desk drawers, then hit your local Coinstar kiosk, where you can turn the contents of your coin jar into cash or no-fee eCertificates from popular brands, including Amazon, iTunes, Gap, and Starbucks. Click here to find the Coinstar kiosk closest to you.
Now that you know there might be more change lying around than you think, what would you do with those extra pennies this holiday?

Sharing your personality with party guests is an important part of wedding planning. Of course, you want them to see not only your everlasting love for your partner, but also your love for the greatest sci-fi story of all time — Star Wars.

Spring is in full force, and with Earth Day going down this weekend, it's time to reevaluate your day-to-day routines to hopefully lean more to the green side of things. Need some tips? Whether you need ideas on how to properly recycle your gadgets or suggestions for an eco-friendly laptop case, you'll be surprised at how geeky going green can be.
Today is Earth Day, and if your skies are blue and bright, get outside to soak up the rays and create some art at the same time. The SunArt Paper Kit ($7) lets you create pretty stenciled art, thanks to light-sensitive paper and a few minutes of sunlight. The kit even tells you how to turn old film negatives into sun art prints with a bit more time.
To make this plush bag version of the iconic blue Diana lomography camera, purchase a fat quarter piece of the fabric ($17) with the camera components already printed and ready to sew into place. Then follow Happysewlucky's step-by-step tutorial on transforming the fabric into a retro wonder.
