We’ve compiled some of our most-loved, but we want to hear what snack foods you miss the most. Tell us your gone-but-not-forgotten favorites in the comments.

God bless the hot mess that is Lindsay Lohan. So much drama, so many great courthouse outfits! While Lindsay is busy organizing nudie shots around her upcoming jail sentence, we’d like to call your attention to a fabulous new publication all about our fave “Herbie” alum. Lindzine is just what it sounds like: a collection of images from Lindz’s editorial work and criminal run-ins. It’s a surprisingly poignant collection of La Lohan’s not-so-finest moments.

Science Can Now Turn Your Brown Eyes Blue — Permanently

Science, man. It’s a mystery. It seems that lately, science — rather than focusing on curing diseases or solving impending environmental disasters — has taken it upon itself to address an age-old problem: people with brown eyes. Yes, yes, some of you may in fact suffer from this affliction, but worry no more. A scientific solution is upon us!

“I think it’s harder to date as an Angel, [because] when people meet [us] it’s hard to look past our job, what we look like. They are always trying to impress you, you know, like ‘come to my mansion blah blah blah.’”

– Poor Victoria’s Secret model/lingerie “angel” Candice Swanepoel, who must constantly deal with a barrage of annoying suitors who want to whisk her away to their mansions. It’s so difficult being pretty. [Stylelist]

In Gillian Robespierre’s amazing and hysterical new short, “Obvious Child,” a woman has a clumsy one-night stand and learns that she’s pregnant. And shock of all shocks–she decides to have an abortion! Yup, “Obvious Child” shows Jenny Slate’s character Donna deciding to have an abortion with little fretting or to-do. She’s not soul-searching or struggling, she’s simply exercising her right NOT to have a baby. It’s honest, hilarious and completely true to life–and a nice antidote to all the heavy-handed TV and film portrayals that make it seem as though having an abortion means you’re a bad or immoral person. This is a must-watch. [Vimeo]

You were thinking, magazines are too easy to carry around–they’re so small and petite and fit so well on my coffee table. It’s like they’re not trying hard enough. Well, not Visionaire! Their new issue 0ffers Lady Gaga at life-size proportions. While a typical issue of Visionaire clocks in at a rather ridiculous 3 x 5 (and $375), the newest issue also comes in an even more extreme 5 x 7 format. Yes, for a mere $1,500, you can have your own magazine-that-doubles-as-a-sleeping-mat. Watch as a few waify models struggle to get the damn thing on a city bus. [YouTube]

What could be said about Anthropologie’s Rickshaw (yes, a real thing) that Anthropologie couldn’t say better? Just listen to their whimsical description of the $2,200 culturally questionable bikemobile:

While on a trip to India work project to find new objects to culturally appropriate some of our team got tired of walking among the poors flagged down a rickshaw for a spur-of-the-moment tour of the markets where we find cheap goods and sell them at offensively ridiculous prices the town. Inspired by the opportunity to make money ride and feeling a bit light-headed from not eating whimsical, we decided to design our own set of wheels, with some very special touches like a collapsible kantha-fabric canopy, handlebar streamers, a bell for brrring-bringing on the bike path and even a headlight that illuminates when the pedals are cranked (warning: does not come with ethnically ambiguous driver). An instant conversation starter on the road or on display, we’ll bet  your neighbors and friends will find this all a bit troubling you’re whisked away on the adventure of a lifetime once you hop on — or into — our crazy expensive and completely inappropriate quixotic carriage. No two are exactly alike.

And good news! You can order up to 15 of them at a time! [Anthropologie]

Reasons why the reboot of “21 Jump Street” might suck: The Holly Robinson or Dustin Nguyen characters seem to be almost nonexistent. Also, Channing Tatum is a poor excuse for Johnny Depp. But who are we kidding? Ice Cube as Captain Dickson? Okay, okay. We’ll be seeing it in theaters (or at least on Netflix streaming).

7 Hair Masks To Save Your Winter Locks

Everyone thinks that summer’s the harshest time for hair–and it can be. But winter does it’s fair share of damage, too. When you least expect it, your bouncy, full locks can be destroyed by the whipping wind and dry air the colder months bring. With that in mind, we recommend you moisturize your hair just as you would your skin–with a rich and nutritive hair mask or serum at least once a week. It’ll keep your strands from becoming brittle and breaking, and help you increase the time between hair cuts. Which everybody likes.

Find out more about these awesome, restorative products after the jump.
