Grocery Store Cashier

Most people interact with a grocery store cashier at least a couple times a week. We hand them our credit cards and they see our most intimate purchases, but beyond a (hopefully) friendly greeting and quick “have a nice day,” those of us who have never worked as a cashier know very little about this back-breaking job. I sent out a bat signal email to all the current and former cashiers I know, asking them one question: what do you wish you could tell every customer who comes through your line? Here’s what they said…

We Want To Go To There: A Life-Size Replica Of Barbie’s Dreamhouse

When I was a kid, the best day of my life was the day my mom gave me her old Barbie Dreamhouse. It was made of pink cardboard, but equipped with all the swanky Malibu details you’d expect. My barbies spent many hours cooking dinner in the luxury kitchen and then retreating to the bedroom to hump each other. Good times. Today my inner child is telling me to buy a ticket to Florida, because that is where Mattel just unveiled a 10,000 square-foot replica of the Barbie Dreamhouse. The feat required 20 pounds of glitter and 100 gallons of pink paint to bring to fruition, and guests are invited to sit down at human-size versions of Barbie’s makeup counter, cook up some imaginary food on one of her three pink ovens, or play a tune on her hot pink grand piano. Check out a few more photos of this crazy piece of Barbie real estate after the jump… Keep reading »

This week’s OMG-worthy hairstyle is the waterfall braid, a style so lovely and unique that I quite literally can’t stop staring at it. It’s a little more advanced than other styles I’ve posted, so hair novices like me might want to enlist a friend to help conquer it, but if you feel comfortable with french braiding I think you could pull it off on your own. Either way, the tutorial is packed with photos to guide you through it. Good luck! [Once Wed]

A couple weeks ago, we brought you the crazy story of Kiera Wilmot, a 16-year-old student in Florida whose ill-fated science experiment got her arrested and charged with a felony. Wilmot was set to be tried as an adult in Florida’s notoriously tough court system, but thanks to a public backlash and internet campaign, she was able to get a lawyer who represented her for almost no charge and the state of Florida finally dropped the charges against her on Wednesday. But the good news doesn’t stop there… Keep reading »
