Lipppppppppsticks!!!!!

I only get roses on birthdays and the occasional Valentine’s Day, so when I received Bite Beauty’s Limited-Edition Deconstructed Rose Lip Gloss Library, I knew it was a special occasion. Almost too pretty to use, the palette features 12 different hues of pink and red lip glosses, inspired by the colors found in a bouquet of roses. Obviously, I needed to test them all out one by one.

Prepare Your Ears: “Let’s Get Social” Is The “Friday” Of Our Generation

"My Cat, My Kids, Some Bacon—Let's Get Social!"

Please take this moment to clean out your ears with Q-Tips and emotionally prepare yourselves for what you’re about to see and hear. At this year’s Social Media Marketing World Convention, a woman by the name of Mary McCoy took the stage to sing a little ditty about the power of social media, and it’s basically the new “Friday” (aka that earworm of a song by Rebecca Black). ”Let’s Get Social,” which she also penned, was described by co-writer Phil Mershon as “a humor-laced theme song for this year’s Social Media Marketing World.” And humor it is, Phil. Humor it is. Just when you think Phil’s random yelling of the word “social!” is the bittersweet icing on top of the WTF cake, just wait for his rap solo. LL Cool J would be proud.

I was totally in my element watching last night’s Academy of Country Music Awards, basking in the hotness that is Luke Bryan and contemplating my love-hate relationship with Taylor Swift, when Stevie Nicks showed up and totally changed the game. She took the stage with Lady Antebellum for a medley of Lady A’s tune “Golden,” and— wait for it— Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon.” In that moment, dreams came true. I didn’t even mind that Hillary Scott was a bit pitchy at times, because it was THAT magical. It was like watching the Power Rangers get together for the first time. Check it out for yourself and thank us later.

Allow me to interrupt your day to bring you this very important, very delicious public service announcement: There’s now a way to devour uncooked cookie dough without fearing you’ll get salmonella.

To this day, I’m still guilty of scooping cookie dough straight out of the bowl before I put a batch of cookies in the oven, which is always followed by immediate regret and panic that I may get salmonella … again. It happened to me once, and it was not enjoyable. BUT, I was recently introduced to Unbakeables, cookie dough bites meant to be eaten uncooked (they’re egg-free), with extra toppings to sweeten the deal. I’m pretty sure they could revolutionize kids’ birthday parties everywhere, forever. Keep reading »
