So, if the Facebook screenshot above is to be believed, someone decided to name their baby “Hashtag,” in honor of their obsession with Twitter (they’re also having some serious trouble spelling the word “weighs,” but that’s another story for another day). In honor of my constantly shrinking amount of faith in the world, I thought this news warranted a list of other internet terms that should absolutely not be used as human names. Hear me, expectant parents? You can cross the following words and phrases off your potential name list right now… Keep reading »

BTD: Celine's Perfumes
Winona was beside herself when she received all of Celine's perfumes. Read More »

Between playing 70 shows a year in Las Vegas, raising three boys, and generally being a shining beacon of perfection, Celine Dion doesn’t really get out much. It’s rare to see her pop up in paparazzi shots, so I was delighted to find this photo of her out and about in Paris, looking amaaaazing. Her whole ensemble, from the Jil Sander cocoon coat to the skinny gray jeans, pointy toe pumps, and (fittingly) Celine tote bag, is tres chic. Also I have decided she was in the middle of serenading the crowd with “River Deep, Mountain High” when this picture was taken, which makes it even more awesome. [Photo: Splash News]

Russell Brand attended a yoga class with his mom over the weekend, and he wore, well, exactly what you might expect Russell Brand to wear to a yoga class: slouchy white T-shirt, transparent white harem pants tucked into waffle-knit legwarmers, flip-flops, and an eclectic selection of jewelry. As much as I admire him for bringing his signature rockstar Jesus style to the yoga studio, I feel bad for whoever was positioned behind him during downward dog. Those pants are miiiiighty see-through. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Dear Guy Who Spent 3.5 Hours Pronouncing The World’s Longest Word,

In second grade I gained a certain amount of notoriety on the playground for memorizing the spelling of “antidisestablishmentarianism,” which was, according to my teacher, the longest word in the world. Obviously Mrs. Shumaker was sorely mistaken, because the actual longest word in the world is the chemical name of a protein that contains 189,819 letters and takes nearly three and a half hours to pronounce in its entirety.

But you, sir, weren’t fazed by this lengthy locution. In fact, you filmed a video of yourself pronouncing the whole thing. And even as the potted plant next to you wilts tragically and your 5 o’clock shadow grows into a dark beard, you maintain your sexy Russian monotone.

After you catch your breath, would you like to read me a bedtime story?

Etsy Spotlight: Country Home Style

Around this time every year I start wishing that my Portland apartment was a quaint, cozy cottage out in the middle of nowhere.

Mason jars everywhere!). Until I can make my country lifestyle a reality, I’m determined to bring some of that country charm into my urban living space, and Etsy is a great place to start.

Weekend Project: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Cocktail

Make Vanilla Bourbon
So easy. So delicious. Read More »

I’m not a big fan of meals composed of Thanksgiving leftovers (my dad used to literally put all of the scraps of turkey, stuffing, green beans, and mashed potatoes in a blender and serve it as an opaque gray “holiday stew”). When it comes to cocktails, however, I’m all about getting creative with whatever ingredients you have on hand. This particular drink caught my eye because it makes use of a handful of gorgeous fresh cranberries, pairing them with ginger ale and vodka. If you have any green apples left over from pie-making this week, I think a couple thin slices of those would be another great addition. Cheers! [Book Cooker]
