It’s Time To Cry: High School Brings Prom To Terminally Ill Student’s Hospital Room

Katelyn Norman, a 14-year-old from Tennessee, suffers from an aggressive form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma. Last weekend, her doctors told her ”it has spread a lot, my cancer, and that it’s the beginning of the end of my days.” Katelyn wrote up a bucket list, which included attending her high school prom, and her school obliged, planning a prom especially for her that was set to take place on Tuesday evening.

Unfortunately, on the way to the dance, Katelyn experienced difficulty breathing and and had to be airlifted back to her room at Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Undeterred by the setback, Katelyn’s school brought prom to her: in a hospital room decorated with streamers, Katelyn’s date gave her a corsage, and she was presented with a “Prom Queen” sash. When Katelyn looked out the window, she saw hundreds of people from her community gathered in a vigil for her. “We just want to give her what she ain’t going to see,” says Katelyn’s mother. “Just try to fulfill what she wants to do, which isn’t much, but it’s something to her.” See a couple more pictures of Katelyn’s special night after the jump… Keep reading »

I recently held a private induction ceremony in my mind for Eva Mendes to join the exclusive club of Celebrites Who Can Do No Fashion Wrong (other members include Diane Kruger and Jessica Alba). I mean, look at this outfit. I’ve been dreaming about that pink coat and glamorous hair flip for weeks now. But yesterday Eva stepped out in this animal print jumpsuit, and while she’s trying her damndest to make it work, I’m not sure it’s actually working. What say you? [Photo: Splash News]

I’ve had my tube of Dermalogica SkinPerfect Primer for awhile now, and for most of that time I’ve used it occasionally when I needed an extra layer of coverage for under my eyes or to conceal redness around my nose. I liked it a lot, but it probably wouldn’t have made it into my deserted island makeup bag (AKA the bag of makeup essentials that I’m inexplicably bringing to a deserted island with me, along with Cheryl Strayed’s Tiny Beautiful Things and a pile of White Stripes CDs).

Then, last week, something weird happened: the sun came out in Portland. I wasn’t expecting this to happen for another 4 months, so I didn’t have any sunscreen on hand. Since my Dermalogica Primer has SPF 30, I started using more of it, spreading a thin layer all over my skin before I applied my makeup. Within 24 hours of slathering my face with primer, the following things happened… Keep reading »

10 Ways To Maintain A Long Distance Friendship

Our LDR Worked
We made an LDR work from Australia to Connecticut. Read More »

As you know, I’m moving from Portland to Nashville in a couple weeks (gulp). I’ve started selling most of my stuff and getting all the logistics figured out, and everything’s going pretty well so far. There’s one thing, though, that’s been weighing on me since I began the process of relocating my life: I’m freaking out about leaving my best friend, Katelyn.

We met during college at Portland State and have been inseparable ever since. Currently, we see each other at least two or three times a week, and while we’re pretty good at talking on the phone too, the thought of putting thousands of miles between us is daunting to say the least. Since Ami gave me such great advice about moving, I thought I’d ask my Frisky coworkers for advice on how to make a long distance friendship work. It turns out that Jessica, especially, has a lot of experience in this arena, with friends scattered all over the globe. Read on for their top 10 LDF tips, and please share your own experiences and advice in the comments! Keep reading »

As you can see from this sign spotted outside the Supreme Court yesterday, the actual gay agenda is much less scary than conservative fearmongers make it out to be. In fact, it looks exactly like most busy moms’ agendas, save for 15 minutes every evening dedicated to breaking up a traditional marriage. Hey, someone’s gotta keep those heterosexual divorce rates nice and high! [Mommyish]
