Shark Week is over, but it lives on in this holy grail of YouTube entertainment, featureing a cat, a baby, America’s favorite week in television, and a Roomba. This is the peak of the internet, friends. It’s only downhill from here. [Laughing Squid]
I have a pretty serious (and embarrassing) mommy blog-reading habit, so for years now I’ve watched internet moms traipse around in Salt Water sandals, raving about them every chance they got. I put off ordering them online for years because I didn’t want to buy shoes I’d never tried on, but I eventually just guessed my size and ordered a pair — best decision ever. Now I finally understand what all the fuss is about. I’ve spent years trying to find a flat summer shoe that’s actually functional for wearing on trips to the beach or vacations that require lots of walking, and my search is finally over. Most of us remember Salt Waters from when we were kids, so I guess they’re technically considered children’s shoes, but the grown-up sizes are equally as comfy, durable, and most importantly, walkable. They are some of the only shoes I can wear the entire day without hitting some kind of pain limit around hour five. Keep reading »
The Boxettes, a kickass a cappella group from the UK, splendidly covers the dance hit “Waiting All Night” by Rudimental (with a little bit of Destiny’s Child’s “Jumpin, Jumpin” mixed in for good measure). The girls keep the beat amazingly and bring a whole new energy to the song that never existed before. Their rhythm is totally infectious, I only wish I’d stumbled across their work sooner!

I haven’t owned a pair of Keds since about 5th grade, but this new Taylor Swift-inspired design might finally convince me to get some. I still haven’t decided how I feel about her new single, but I’m a fan of these Sneaky Cat Keds. They’ll be available in October, just like the her new “1989″ album, and feature — you guessed it — sneaky little cats peeking over the edge of the shoe. The heel has Taylor’s birthday, 12-13-89, scrawled on the back in metallic lettering. I’m not sure how I feel about walking around with someone else’s birthday on my feet, but I like that the shoes have just enough of a cutesy twist to stand out without being overwhelming, and I adore any and all cat-related footwear. Taylor already has a pretty massive Keds collection, which isn’t surprising since she seems to work them into just about everything she wears, but this pair was specially designed to celebrate her album launch. I’m still pondering whether to get some, but if you want your own Swifty kitty shoes, you can sign up for the pre-order list here.
Everyone and their mother is waiting on the edge of their seat to find out whether the royal couple of pop are really getting divorced (rooting for you Bey and Jay!), but Funny Or Die is here to remind us that these rumors are becoming increasingly ludicrous. Next time you open your mouth to share another tidbit of Beyonce hearsay, check yourself. If the news sounds like some tabloid writer made it up on the fly, that’s probably the case. [Funny Or Die]
