Burger King isn’t just the home of the Whopper anymore. If you want a new scent for the new year, try “FLAME,” a new men’s body spray from BK, which smells like – what else? – flame-broiled meat.

The small tube of men’s body spray sells for $3.99, while supplies last. While we can’t guarantee this will have girls fawning all over you – or wanting to be close to you at all – it certainly makes a good gag gift. And who doesn’t enjoy getting those from time to time? Find FLAME The Web site alone is worth a look.

If you haven’t heard the ’80s are back in the fashion world, you’re, like, totally out of the loop.

Popular New York-based shoemaker FILA has introduced its Los Angeles-inspired “Melrose Shoe.”

The hi-top shoes come in a variety of fun and funky colors and patterns – and there’s plenty of neon, of course. There is also plenty of metallic sheen going on, as the shoes incorporate 3M reflective material.

These shoes are not for the shy, timid girls out there, but those who want to make a statement.

You can find some of the styles at for $70. FILA also teamed with Los Angeles-based boutique Sportie LA, which has its own signature line of the shoes, which you can find at for $69.95 to $99.95.
