Today in News That Makes You Want To Crawl Back Under The Covers: police in Afghanistan say a woman was reportedly strangled to death by her husband because she gave birth to a baby girl.

I will explain it all, after the jump: Keep reading »

And it’s a philosophy they’ve fulfilled more than admirably. I actually love their Fairy Face Palette so much that I’ve used it daily since December and I’m already fretting about whether I’ll be able to procure a new one at Target when I’ve used it all up. I’m sure it will sell out. Keep reading »
