It’s Time To Cry: A Holocaust Love Story For The Ages

Jerzy Bielecki was 19-year-old when he was thrown into a German concentration camp, accused of being a member of the Polish resistance. Bielecki spent three years at the camps before he met Cyla Cybulska, a young Polish Jew who was sent there with her brothers and parents. Cyla was the only one of her family to survive, and was sent to work in the camp’s grain warehouse, where she met Jerzy. The pair were only allowed to speak a minimum of words to one another, but over the course of the next eight months, the two fell in love. And that’s when Jerzy hatched a scheme to save the love of his life and escape the camp.  Keep reading »

Heidi Klum’s Craziest Halloween Costumes

God bless Heidi Klum. Not only is she one of the sexiest ladies in the world, but she also seems to have quite a sense of humor. Every year, Klum hosts a balls-to-the-wall Halloween party, and challenges herself to design crazier and more over-the-top costumes. This year, she’s got two costumes going on: first, a strange money boy ,and second, a cadaver from the “Bodies” cadaver exhibition. Both are, well, weird. But that’s exactly why we like Klum. Check out the rest of her batcrackers looks from years past, too!

Great Dane Lily was rendered blind thanks to a rare condition in which her eyelashes grew into her eyeballs. But thankfully she’s got guide dog Maddison — another Great Dane — to lead her around. Maddison stays close to Lily when they walk around, helping to guide her by touching her with his body to let her know the way.  Keep reading »

The Prettiest Pajama Party

I’ve finally had enough of sleeping in my old yoga pants, which I got when I tried to make yoga my “thing” (surprise, it’s not my thing). That’s why I’m upgrading my sleeping situation of late with a pair of lovely cotton jammies from the fine folks at BedHead. Not only are these pajamas beautifully made, they’re pretty enough that you’ll want to wear them out of the house. But don’t! That would be weird. [$136, BedHead PJs]

Shopping Guide: 10 Great Laptop Cases And Bags

A couple of weeks ago, I managed to spill a full cup of iced coffee on my laptop, forever rendering the “P” key on my computer useless.

No more spills! No more busted keyboards! Say it with me now…

Listen, if you really have to be reminded that blackface is both culturally insensitive and just plain tacky, well, you’ve got problems. But just in case, students at Ohio University created a special campaign, helpfully reminding that blackface — even on Halloween — is in REALLY BAD TASTE. The kids from Students Teaching Against Racism (STARS) developed the “It’s a Culture, Not a Costume” series which features real pictures from a totally offensive Clemson University “gansta” party. But let’s hope you — and your friends — don’t really need the reminder. [Good Magazine]
