Annabelle Earl, a four-year-old Brooklyn girl, had a dream of being a flower girl but no wedding to attend. With a long dress, bouquet, and a poster that read ”Can I be your flower girl?” she took to Brooklyn City Hall to find herself a willing couple.
It sounds like a Hallmark moment, until we learn that the only reason this scenario went down is to appease the fact that her original wish for a unicorn couldn’t come true. Yes, we are actually seriously considering little girls’ requests for unicorns now. Earlier this spring, Annabelle’s mother Kim took her to Washington, D.C. They visited Yoko Ono’s “Wishing Tree” in a Smithsonian garden, and Annabelle whispered her greatest dream to the tree. Keep reading »
Three forward-thinking women have put their heads together to create the ultimate in lingerie — pretty, stain-resistant underwear meant to help you survive your period without ruined clothes and embarrassing moments. Why didn’t anyone come up with this sooner!?
The panties are called THINX, and they’re the brain child of twin sisters Radha and Miki Agrawal and their friend Antonia Dunbar. After facing one too many public period disasters, the ladies got fed up with the cultural stigma surrounding menstruation — and how that stigma has prevented innovation in the products we use to manage our time of the month.

It’s a bag of cheese. I would just like to say it’s a fine triple crème brie! Right when they zoom in I should have a tattoo on my ass that says, ‘You wish you could get a bite of this.’”
Haters, take note: Sharon Stone does not give a damn what you think about her ass. I can’t imagine how much it would suck to have to anticipate gossip rags’ reaction to your beach vacation — just having to deal with being tagged in unflattering Instagram photos is annoying enough! She pretty much told E! News that the tabloids can suck it, because her body is just fine as it is. [Jezebel] [Photo: Getty Images]
Didga the skateboarding cat can add parkour to her resume now, too. The two-year-old cat was adopted at 13 weeks by a pet trainer who’s taught her everything she knows about her talents in feline sports, and this video is her coolest yet. Watch and enjoy (and please don’t try to parkour-ify your own kitty unless a cat-training pro is around)! [Tastefully Offensive]
