Well Played: Michelle Obama Goes For The Gold

With apologies to Jackie O, I think Michelle Obama is the most stylish first lady this country has ever had, and her fashion choices just keep getting better. Case in point: the stunning Michael Kors gown she donned for the Kennedy Center Honors last night. With its glittering gold fabric and jeweled neckline, it’s a little edgy and totally elegant. This right here, folks, is an iconic fashion moment. Check out another pic of Mrs. O’s amazing dress after the jump! Keep reading »

Click through to see how 10 celeb ladies are styling their loafers…

I love cannoli, but they’re so rich I can barely finish a normal-sized one without getting a stomach ache. When I saw a picture of the world’s largest cannoli, created for the New England Dessert Showcase last year, I didn’t exactly want to eat it. I did, however, want to climb inside it like a sleeping bag, doze off, and have sweet dreams of chocolate and ricotta. [Boston Foodie]

Holiday Must Haves: 10 Subtly Sequined Pieces

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is that it’s one of the only socially acceptable times to dress like a human disco ball. If I had my way I would wear this dress every day of my life (even days that included grocery shopping and dentist appointments), so I get really excited to peruse all the gold sequin blazers and red sequin mini dresses that fill the stores every November. But I understand that not everyone shares my philosophy that there is no such thing as too many sequins. Maybe you want to add a little sparkle into your wardrobe this holiday season without going overboard. Maybe you’re looking for something festive you can wear to work without looking like that crazy Christmas-obsessed lady who has a motion-activated Santa Claus figure on her desk. Whatever your reason, I found 10 lovely pieces of clothing that are embellished with a mere smattering of sequins, just for you. Click through to check ‘em out…

I try to be as eco-friendly as possible in most areas of my life, but sometimes my penchant for procrastination overpowers my desire to be green. Example: pretty much every Christmas eve, when I realize I forgot to get any kind of gift-wrapping materials and end up buying a pile of made-in-China plastic gift bags at the dollar store and feeling terrible. This year I’m taking a different route and crafting some of these recycled newspaper gift bags. They’re funky, colorful, earth-friendly, and almost free: what’s better than that? [Yours Truly, G]

If you’re looking for a gift for that hairy, manly, meat-eating hunk in your life, might we suggest a tub of bacon-scented shaving cream? Sold by bacon-obsessed company J&D Foods (the same people who brought you bacon-flavored lube), Bacon Shaving Cream is a “high end, luxurious bacon-scented shaving cream for all skin types.” It’s apparently formulated with heat-activated technology that releases an extra burst of bacon fragrance when the user’s skin warms up, which means if you shave with it in the morning and then hit the gym later in the day, your face will suddenly smell like a sweaty, sizzling breakfast griddle. Sexy, right? If you want to get in on the bacon-scented action, you better buy it soon: J&D produced only 2,500 jars, and they’re going fast. True bacon lovers, it seems, aren’t put off by the company’s warning that when using this product, one should “prepare to be loved, admired and possibly be eaten by bears.” [J&D Foods via Oddity Central]

Your Daily Squee: A Brand New Baby Elephant

This adorable elephant calf was born at 2:17 a.m. today at the Oregon Zoo. If her cute little elephant beard isn’t enough to brighten up your dreary Friday, well, consider the fact that no matter how crappy your day might seem, you almost certainly didn’t spend the past 30 hours in labor with a 300-pound baby. Props to her mom, 18-year-old elephant Rose-Tu, and welcome to the world, little(ish) one! [Oregon Zoo]

"I know that's not going on TV."

This video clip from a Portland news station begins like any other slightly awkward local news interview, but then, about 12 seconds in, it becomes the the most hilariously awkward local news interview ever, involving tits and the vacuum cleaner man. Just push play, OK? And then you’ll understand why I’m starting a campaign to get this woman her own show. And also bringing her a fruit basket and asking her if she will be the weird aunt I’ve never had. [YouTube via Molls]
