CONTEST

Does the mere sight of a liquor bottle inspire you? Enter the Dewar's ``Studio D'' photo contest, which celebrates the new signature bottle design. Inspired by rock-and-roll photographer Danny Clinch's gorgeous portfolio shot of the new bottle, the contest offers consumers a chance to capture the Dewar's look with their own cameras. Get creative and submit a cool and artsy shot of the new bottle at thinkersanddewars.com through Wednesday. Vote for your favorite shots starting Jan. 11. Grand-prize winner wins a fancy Nikon camera and an Apple MacBook Pro.

SNIFF

We admit the concept is a bit unorthodox, but after this endless holiday season you're probably sick of smelling all that evergreen and bayberry anyway. If you are, White Castle has just the cure: the Original Slider-scented candle, which smells like a burger with onions. The candles cost $13 and can be purchased at HouseofCrave.com. The downside? Say goodbye to your New Year's diet; they'll make you really hungry.

RELAX

Everyone deserves a little luxury at

this time of year, and you can find it at

the Spa at the Standard Miami Beach, which has just partnered with the renowned French skin-care line

Biologique Recherche. Try a 15-

minute Revital-Eyes treatment

($40 with any facial), which exfoliates and hydrates delicate eye and lip areas, or go crazy with the Oxygenating + Slimming Body Treatment (60

minutes for $160), which

includes a detoxifying

bath (you know you need

that), botanical oils massaged into the skin and a complete hydrotherapy session. The

skin-care line uses no artificial dyes or fragrances.
