Sandra Bullock has reappeared on the red carpet recently to promote her new movie “The Heat,” and is it just me or does she look more beautiful than ever? Seriously, the girl is glowing. I’m also really digging her new look for this round of publicity: lots of black, slightly slouchy silhouettes, with an edgy vibe — in this case, that fierce leather pencil skirt. I found all the pieces to create a plus-size version of this fabulous outfit. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
The world was shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of James Gandolfini yesterday. Holstens, a New Jersey ice cream shop which served as the backdrop for the iconic final diner scene of “The Sopranos,” quickly filled with fans who wanted to experience a piece of Gandolfini’s entertainment legacy. As a tribute to the late actor, the restaurant placed a “reserved” sign on the empty table where Tony Soprano sat down for his final meal. It’s a striking image, isn’t it?
Meanwhile, Gandolfini’s former co-stars and friends are reacting to his death. One of the most touching messages came from Edie Falco, who played Gandolfini’s TV wife, Carmela Soprano. Keep reading »
Stephen Colbert’s mom Lorna passed away last week at the age of 92.

This morning I woke up before my alarm went off and started mindlessly surfing the web on my phone. A few random clicks led me to this article about how Gmail’s Organized Inbox feature will literally change your life.

Boom! Life. Changed. Keep reading »

Between his adorable little face and cabbage patch-esque last name, I’m actually surprised it took this long for someone to create Benedict Cabbagepatch, the Benedict Cumberbatch Cabbage Patch Kid. This one is wearing Benedict’s trademark “Sherlock” outfit; see a photo of Cabbage Patch Khan after the jump! [The Frogman] Keep reading »
I am of the mind that there is no such thing as an ugly bookshelf. As long as it has books on it, preferably a few old ones that I can open and smell shamelessly, any collection of books — whether messy or organized, displayed on an antique or an IKEA — is beautiful. That being said, there is definitely such a thing as a bookshelf that is even more awesome than usual. I scoured the internet and found 10 examples of not-so-average bookshelves that I want in my house, like, now. Click on the gallery to check ‘em out!
