One of my interior design dreams has always been to have an old school card catalog in my house. I’d love to use it for organizing recipes, jewelry, craft supplies, or just general storage. I could spend hours scouring garage sales to find an antique one, plunk down some serious cash for a reproduction, or better yet, I could craft my own. This tutorial uses IKEA drawers, but you could use any light-wood drawers–just add some wood stain and brass labels and ta-da! You’ve got a fabulous storage space guaranteed to impress your librarian friends! [The Painted Hive]

Unrequited Love
Ami talks about how she loves unrequited love. Read More »

First Amy Poehler and Will Arnett split up, and now this. It’s not a good week for love, you guys. Since 2006, smitten couples have been decorating Rome’s Ponte Milvio bridge with padlocks to signify their eternal devotion (the craze was sparked by a novel called I Want You), but now the weight of all those love locks is threatening the ancient bridge. As of Monday, police have begun taking bolt cutters to thousands of the romantic symbols, which makes a lot of practical sense but is still kind of tragic to watch. Apparently the padlock-obsessed lovers have taken to expressing their commitment at other nearby landmarks like the railings near the Trevi Fountain, which gives a whole new meaning to the term “lock it down.” [Telegraph]

Welcome to Ami's #1 life dream. Read More »

I love movies. I love hot tubs. I love champagne. I love rooftop parties. I love London. Hot Tub Cinema just happens to be a combination of all of those things, so obviously I want to get in on the action. For the past year, Hot Tub Cinema has been putting on rooftop hot tub parties where guests can sip bubbly, flirt with moviegoers in neighboring hot tubs, watch the sun set over the London skyline, and enjoy quality films such as “Anchorman.” I can think of worse ways to spend a September evening.

I was listening to Pandora yesterday and randomly–so, so randomly–Garth Brooks’ song “Friends In Low Places” came on. From the first few notes, I was instantly transported back to my rural high school gym, line dancing in a PE uniform and hating my life. But you know what? In that moment I also felt a pang of nostalgia for my tiny Oregon high school (my graduating class had a whopping 75 people in it), and I thought about all the other strange and awful and wonderful experiences I had there. So in honor of Garth Brooks and muddy trucks and parties in the woods, here are 10 ridiculous things that happen at rural, small town high schools… Keep reading »

“I Googled him right away! And it was shocking, ’cause he was like two completely different people. I was just in awe of his ability and his talent. And then to know him on the other side of it, and how sweet and simple and loving he is…You know how people say that when you meet somebody you love, you feel at home?”

– Kate Hudson, looking ridiculously gorgeous on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, opens up about the humble beginnings of her relationship with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy. After meeting him at one of his shows, Kate did what any of us would do: she went straight to Google to get the scoop on her new crush. Now the couple has an adorable baby named Bingham, and splits their time between LA and London, where Kate gets her lifestyle tips not from Google, but Gwyneth Paltrow: “She’s been my go-to about where to get things done—grocery shopping, a good mani-pedi, you know, all that.” Quick question: how do I join this Famous Blondes Who Marry Rock Stars And Get Pedicures Together In London Club? Because damn, life dream status. [Us Weekly]

Many of you will regard this as another sign of the end days, but here it is: Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne have recorded a duet and, according to L.A. Reid, it’s a “really good record” and set to be released “very soon.” As we all know, the First Couple of Canada met while working on Lavigne’s new album together. “When you are having a good time making a record that always comes across in music,” said Lavigne at the time. “The energy’s good so things flow better and that’s what I’m excited about.” Now that the musical fruits of their love will finally be available for public consumption, we all must ask ourselves: are we ready to hear it?

I bought a pair of these panties in black lace for the same reason anyone buys anything at Target: I was there to buy a box of Luna Bars and saw them hanging on a rack under a big $5 sign. I knew they were cute and cheap, but I didn’t know they would quickly become my new favorite underwear: they’re sexy, comfy, and with just the right amount of stretch, they’re totally flattering. And yeah, did I mention they’re $5 a pop? I’m about to grab a few more colors, and I encourage you to join me! [$5, Target]

Model Inner Monologue: Sequin Nip Slip Guaranteed

When astrophysicist Carl Sagan said, “We’re made of star stuff,” he was speaking about the fact that human beings are quite literally composed of elements that were forged within the cores of stars that went supernova. “Some part of our being knows this is where we came from,” he posited, “because the cosmos is also within us.” Photographer Ignacio Torres wanted to illustrate this amazing concept, so he used glitter, dust, and dramatic lighting to produce a series of photos like this one, which “suggest [a] celestial creation.” Check out more of his stunning images, presented in GIF form, on his website.
