Style Inspiration: Amy From “Enlightened”

I started watching HBO’s “Enlightened” for the same reason I’ve started watching pretty much all of my favorite shows: Amelia was like, “Dude, you HAVE to watch this show.” And as usual, she was totally right, because within three episodes this show had completely stolen my heart. I love it so much. It’s a breath of fresh air. If you don’t watch it yet, here are 10 reasons you should start, but if you’re already watching (Good! Keep it up!), then you know the main character, Amy Jellicoe, played by the amazing Laura Dern, is always striving for a better, brighter, lighter life–and she makes sure to dress the part. Want to steal her sunny style? We’ve got all the pieces (for $100 or less!) after the jump… Keep reading »

So, huge news: my boyfriend Nick and I are moving from Portland to Nashville, Tennessee! Remember when we visited last year and were totally smitten with the city? Well, our lease is up at the end of this month, and we’ve decided it’s the right time to give southern living a try. Neither of us has ever done a major move like this. We are incredibly excited. We are totally terrified. And we are full of questions about everything from packing logistics to saying goodbye to our dear friends, which is why I enlisted my lovely and wise coworker Ami, who is something of a moving expert–to give us some guidance. Read on for our moving Q&A, and please feel free to add your own tips and suggestions in the comments (we’ll take any help we can get!).

Alright, take it away, Ami…

Cheeseboard Cakes
Are they a do or a don't? Read More »

I can vaguely remember a time in my life when a cake stuffed with candy might seem a little strange and excessive, but that was Before Pinterest (B.P.) completely desensitized me to the phenomenon of desserts stuffed with more dessert. Now, the idea of a piñata cake actually seems kind of tame, at least compared to the cakes-stuffed-with-pies-stuffed-with-truffles-stuffed-with-ice-cream that I routinely repin with comments like, “So nice for a party!” This piñata cake, though, it did give me pause. Not because of the high levels of sugar, but because of the candy wrappers inside. Call me picky, but I generally prefer there not to be plastic in my food. I don’t know, what do you guys think? Is the piñata cake an awesome idea or an example of excessive desserts gone awry? [A Subtle Revelry via Neatorama]

I’ve been meaning to write about my trip to Maui for over a month now, but every time I think about it I’m overwhelmed by memories of tropical relaxation and I have to immediately lie down on the floor and pretend I’m on the beach instead. But now I’m really going to do it, even if I have to put on a swimsuit and sit next to my space heater while I write. So here goes… Keep reading »

This is Barbie Parker giving an expressive performance in front of a crowd of thousands of cheering fans at Lollapalooza. If her name doesn’t ring a bell in your mental dictionary of rock stars, that’s because she’s never been a headliner–she’s a sign language interpreter who performs alongside hugely popular musical acts like Jack White and Green Day. Parker’s company, LotuSIGN, has helped bring sign language interpreters to more musical performances, and the demand for her services continues to grow. “Music is such a large part of who I am,” she said. “I want to be able to open up that experience.” Parker’s performances include air drumming, lip syncing lyrics, dancing, and jamming on an air guitar to communicate each concert to attendees who are deaf or hard of hearing. Check out a couple videos of Parker in action, after the jump! Keep reading »

I used to get so excited when my mom would take me to the tiny JC Penney store in the next town over so I could get a new pair of Arizona Jean Company elastic waist denim shorts. Sometimes we would even stop for a Dairy Queen Blizzard on the way home. Best day ever. Jessica Alba took her daughter Honor on a very different version of a mother-daughter shopping trip this weekend, browsing a number of designer boutiques in Paris while wearing adorable coordinating coats, hats, and leather booties. So freakin’ cute. I wonder if Honor got a new pair of elastic waist denim shorts. Probably not. But I can dream. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

10 Animals That Are Total A**Holes

So last week, the Facebook page “I Fucking Love Science” posted a picture of this horrible little creature, a mouth-infesting isopod called cymothoa exigua that crawls into the mouths of fish and eats their tongues. Seriously? Dick move, bro. I mean, look at its smug little face. Ugh. This awful parasite got me thinking about other members of the animal kingdom that are just unapologetic assholes.
