College Student Receives $40,000 Settlement After Her Guinea Pig Is Banned From Campus

The Bay Of (Guinea) Pigs
A story of marital strife and two dozen guinea pigs. Read More »

Kendra Velzen, a 28-year-old student at Grand Valley State University in Michigan, suffers from depression and uses a pacemaker. Her pet guinea pig, Blanca, helps her cope with the stress of day-to-day life. Or, as Velzen’s lawyer put it: “The presence of an emotional support animal provides Ms. Velzen with continued emotional support and attachment (thereby reducing symptoms of depression), physiological benefits (such as decreased heart rate), and psychological benefits (such as increased Oxytocin levels, which directly impact the sense of life satisfaction).” For these reasons, the university agreed to make an exception to their “no pets” rule and allowed Velzen to keep Blanca in her dorm room. This could have been the end of a touching story about the enduring bond between a woman and her guinea pig, but unfortunately, things got complicated…. Keep reading »

Comfortable High Heels
Which brands made the cut? Read More »

Looking for a pair of shoes that you can put on with anything and spice up your entire wardrobe? Look no further than these amazing handpainted Sriracha pumps from Hourglass Footwear. Inspired by the beloved red bottles of hot sauce and painted by a team of Seattle artists, you can also get your Sriracha footwear in the form of flats, stilettos, or mid-height heels. At $200 a pop for the platform heels (flats are $130), they’re not cheap, but for true fans of the red rooster, they’re well worth it. [$200, Hourglass]

The Perfect Hot Pink Sandals For Spring

Comfortable High Heels
Which brands made the cut? Read More »

I came across these Sofft sandals while rounding up links for the comfortable heel guide, and I was instantly smitten by their ridiculously bright pink straps and 70s-style wood platform. I want to wear them with my favorite black jersey dress and big vintage sunglasses to wander around the farmer’s market and feel really chic and stylish until I step in a puddle of melted snow cone and immediately regret wearing my favorite shoes outside of the house. At $100, they’re about twice as much as I usually spend on shoes, but I might have to make an exception (or engage in some shameless birthday begging). [$105.95, Sofft]

Chris Kluwe On Gay Marriage

Read the NFL player's letter in support of marriage equality! Read More »

“I am a heterosexual guy in a tough macho sport, which is exactly the reason I feel a duty to say I support gay marriage and gay rights. I have nothing to gain personally from supporting this issue, and that’s the point. Society as a whole is better when there is equality, and I want to live in a country where everyone has the same rights because we all benefit from that. What people overlook is that this isn’t a sex issue, it’s a love issue. There’s no justifiable reason for trying to get in the way of two people who love each other.”

–UFC fighter Rashad “Suga” Evans has added his name to a brief filed by NFL players Chris Kluwe and Brendon Ayanbadejo urging the Supreme Court to overturn a ban on same-sex marriage. He also issued this beautiful statement to Outsports to show his support for marriage equality and equal rights. Huge props to Evans for taking such a powerful stand, and here’s hoping more athletes follow his lead! [Outsports]

That’s A Lot Of Look: Nicole Scherzinger Loads Up On Leather

Those are possibly the worst pants ever. Read More »
Love It Or Leave It: Nicole
What do you think of this look? Read More »

On a recent night out in London, Nicole Scherzinger hit the town in a leather jacket, tight crop top, major false lashes, slicked-back hair, and a slightly baffling pair of leather pant-boots. I can only assume that Nicole is auditioning for the role of the 6th Kardashian sister, but the real proof will come when she changes her name to Kicole. Stay tuned! [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

You know, I thought I’d made up 311 Day — a day (3/11) to celebrate the band 311. But it turns out the band beat me to it. Today, 311 day, we celebrate how “all mixed up” we’d be without then. Did you know that 311 has been around for 25 years? Do you feel SO old right now? Sorry. Let’s get back to the important business of celebrating this holiday. Here are 5 ways to make 311 Day count… Keep reading »
