Check out these awesome sneakers Nike just rolled out as part of its 2012 BE TRUE campaign in support of the LGBT community. The high-tops feature iridescent rainbow soles and the message “Be true” printed on the inside. Three different versions of the shoes, along with a BE TRUE hat and t-shirt, are being sold in New York, San Francisco, and Portland to acknowledge those cities as “progressive leaders of LGBT life.” Props to Nike for creating a pair of eye-catching kicks that draw attention to a really important cause. Supporting equal rights for all: just do it. [Laughing Squid]

So, the other day, this “cucumber sub” popped up on my Pinterest page labeled as the “perfect low carb sandwich” and it made me, like, raging mad. My inner monologue went something like this (in Chris Rock’s voice): “That ain’t no motherfuckin’ sandwich!” I sent the link to Amelia who immediately shared my anger and responded with, “COME THE FUCK ON.” Soon Ami chimed in that she had similar food rage issues with Kraft Singles, and an Angry Foods slideshow was born.

I wasn’t sure about Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman), but after seeing “The Dark Knight Rises” this weekend, I am totally on board.

Just as I was kinda sorta maybe starting to get sick of the cake pop trend, I am introduced to the concept of pie pops, and my faith in ridiculous-desserts-on-a-stick is restored. This pie pop mold lets you bake mini pies and fill them with anything from fresh berries to Nutella to meat (or, if you’re feeling really wild, a mixture of all of the above). I feel a pie pop party coming on… [$24.99, ThinkGeek]
This shade of green was my #1 top fave color when I was in seventh grade. I owned a collection of horrifyingly unflattering lime green T-shirts, and I even painted my room this color (with bright orange trim, naturally). I laid my lime green love to rest years ago, but seeing this gorgeous dress on Eva Longoria is bringing back those old familiar feelings. Who knew lime green could look downright sophisticated when paired with dark nail polish and tan strappy sandals? My seventh grade self sure didn’t (I usually paired it with tattered leggings and an American Girl jacket). Note taken. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
“I actually felt something go pop or snap, or whatever. Whatever it is, it was very frightening. I had to really adjust because it happened in the middle of a show … I had a full check up and [my doctor] said that there wasn’t any permanent damage that couldn’t be restored without rest. So if I keep taking care of myself there won’t be any recurrences.”
– Powerhouse singer Florence + The Machine Florence Welch describes the vocal injury she experienced last week that sidelined her from two festival performances. Luckily it wasn’t serious, but definitely a scary moment. The hardest part of recovery? No caffeine allowed! Says Florence, “I had been on such a caffeine kick up until then. I was fully back on five diet cokes a day and two coffees in the morning. I was really twitching my way through life, but I was completely loving it.” [Us Weekly]
