Comfort Food Hall Of Fame: 10 Brag-Worthy Chili Recipes

As I mentioned in our “Foods That Make Us Angry” slideshow, it seems to be human nature to brag excessively whenever you make a pot of chili. As annoyed as it makes me to listen to someone talk for 15 minutes about the spicy 7-bean mixture they’ve got simmering on the stove, I try to be patient, because lord knows I’ve chili-bragged on numerous occasions, and you know what? Sometimes a chili brag is  totally warranted. For example, in the case of these 10 chili recipes, all of which look delicious enough to brag about for daaaayyyyys.

Style Inspiration: Michelle Obama’s Hearts And Stripes

This weekend, the Barack Obama Facebook page posted this picture of the first couple attending a Veteran’s Day ceremony. My friend Molly immediately sent me the link along with the message, “What is Michelle wearing?! I want it!” I did some sleuthing (and by “sleuthing” I mean I went to the awesome website “Mrs. O,” which tirelessly chronicles all of Michelle’s fashion choices, and typed in “striped sweater”) and found out the photo is actually from last year, and the divine Miss O’s sweater is a Sonia Rykiel creation that’s no longer available. Sad, yes, but I found three other fabulous sweaters that feature hearts and stripes, and the best part? They’re all less than 100 bucks. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

It’s pretty rare for anyone to look like a model in real life. Take away the flattering lights, stylists, makeup artists, hairstylists, and Photoshop, and even actual models don’t look so model-ish anymore. Miranda Kerr, as you can see, is an exception to the rule. Everything from her cream outfit to her simple accessories to her wavy hair is totally flawless, even when she’s just strolling down the street in NYC. [Photo: Splash News]

10 Ways To Love Your Body

As much as I love to rock out in my car and throw my hands in the air like I just don’t care at concerts, I’ve always operated under the assumption that I can’t dance. I have vaguely fond memories of a brief stint in ballet as a preschooler, but the only other dance experience I’ve had was a tap class in junior high. It took place in a barn (gotta love small towns) and the teacher spent the entire time mocking my technique and trying to get me to join her church’s youth group. I quit after one class, and never really danced again.

That all changed this weekend. My best friend, who also happens to be a dance teacher, put on an introductory dance workshop for people just like me, so I went, and I danced, and I absolutely loved it. Here are six reasons I’m itching to take another dance class, and why I think you should join me… Keep reading »

9-Year-Old Boy Steals His Parents’ Life Savings For Candy Store Shopping Spree

Candy Physics?!
It's our new favorite branch of science. Read More »

When a nine-year-old Ukrainian boy found his parents’ life savings stashed under the couch, he did what any kid with a sweet tooth and a touch of psychopathy would do: he paid off an adult acquaintance to help him convert the $4,000 nest egg to Ukrainian currency, and then he went to the candy store. And spent all of it. Yep, while most children might snag a few bucks and call it good, it seems this particular child’s candy compulsion was so strong, it was worth setting up a multi-currency money laundering operation. I used to think I was clever for concealing my identity to score extra free samples at Costco, but damn, this child’s scheme is next level. Also? We all might want to stock up on vegetables now, because this kid is obviously going to take over the world someday, and there will be no room for kale in his totalitarian Candy Land. [Huffington Post]

Do Not Want: Jean Sandal Boots Of Nightmares

Julie and I agree that these weird, confusing, totally real denim sandal boots most likely came into existence as the result of someone making a pair of cutoff jean shorts (or “jorts,” if you’re an asshole) and trying to find a way to use the rest of the fabric. Here, I wrote a haiku to better explain the thought process:

Just made some sweet jorts!
Now I have extra fabric…
I’ll make jandal joots!

Seriously though, why do these exist?! [Buzzfeed]
