Ladies and gentlemen, meet Pegomastax africanus, a newly discovered dinosaur about the size of a house cat, with self-sharpening fangs and porcupine-like quills. It looks vicious, but scientists believe Pego (that’s its nickname from now on, OK?) was an herbivore who used those fearsome teeth for nothing more than foraging yummy plants and defending its adorable little self. Another bombshell? Paul Sereno, a paleontologist at the University of Chicago, insists that if this long-extinct creature were still around today, “it would be a nice pet—if you could train it not to nip you.” Well fancy that. I’ve been wanting to get a Pomeranian, but suddenly I want a Pegomastax instead. Amelia, would you and Lucca care to join us for a walk? [National Geographic]
I normally love rounded colors and contrast piping, but in the case of this blouse, the effect is very, umm, well, it looks like a cock and balls. What do you think? Would you dare to wear such a phallic fashion? [$53, ASOS]
So, at this point I’ve done quite a few recipe roundups, for all kinds of culinary indulgences from crazy-delicious cookies to gooey macaroni and cheese, and I can honestly say none of them has triggered such dramatic, drooling side effects as this pumpkin-palooza. I pored over pumpkin recipes with my mouth hanging open, every once in awhile yelling at my boyfriend to come into my office, grunting and gesturing at a photo of chocolate pumpkin marble cake or pumpkin caramel bread pudding, at which point he would sit down next to me with his mouth hanging open and we would both just stare at my computer screen, a low “Mmmmm” emanating from our throats. Pumpkin, you guys. It’s way better than porn.
Also, see the photo up there on the left? Those are pumpkin pie vodka shots. Yeah. Click through to get all the delicious pumpkin recipes you’ll need for fall….

I spent the weekend in Nashville, listening to bluegrass jam bands, googling “Where do Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman hang out?” and eating way more BBQ than any human being should consume in such a short time period. It was glorious. I loved the city, and was totally inspired by the fashion, which is such a fun mix of feminine southern belle style and edgier, trendy pieces. Read on to find out how to get the Nashville look for yourself… Keep reading »
Lately I’ve been looking at my closet and feeling an overwhelming sense of “I have nothing to wear!” Luckily though, I just found the magical garment that will instantly fill the gaping void in my wardrobe: a Chavril engagement T-shirt, which celebrates the upcoming Canadian royal wedding of ChAvril LaKroeger, aka Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger. As the model illustrates, it goes perfectly with a heavy smear of black eyeliner and a punk rock attitude. Yep, this is definitely my new fall uniform. [$25, The Chavril Boutique]
The best thing about fall (besides new TV shows and crunchy leaves and pumpkin spice lattes) is stepping out in a cute pair of boots, and what makes a cute pair of boots even cuter? A chunky cable knit sock peeking out from the top. Get the layered look without the bulk by cutting the arms off an old sweater to create these adorable leg warmers, which would look just as awesome pulled over thick tights as they do with jeans.
