Worst Jobs Ever
What was the worst job you've ever had? Read More »

When Maeghan Smulders, a 24-year-old from Calgary, graduated from college last June, she had 29 job offers (yep, you read that right: twenty-nine). Did she choose the best one and start working her way up the corporate ladder? Of course not! She was convinced she could find something better, so she launched a “speed interning” campaign, working for free at 10 companies over the span of 112 days. “I really wanted to find an environment that I could really grow in,” she says, and wow, did she find it: after sorting through 18 more job offers (one from each company she interned at, and eight from companies who saw her story on the news), she took a job with Beyond The Rack, a fashion startup based in Montreal that created a new position just for her. “I really hope that this journey inspires other students to not limit themselves upon graduating,” says Smulders. “Be persistent and really search for what you want to do.” As much as I love her message, the internship blitz isn’t a realistic option for all the college students out there who are working multiple (paid) jobs and barely making it. What do you think of Smulders’ job hunting strategy? [The Star]

I’m, like, 99 percent sure that this mini skirt is actually a hand towel, which is why I’m extra confused about the fact that it cost $955 full price, and $286 on sale. I mean, for those kind of prices, I’d expect at least a full size bath towel.  [Shopbop]

Style Stealer: Eva Longoria’s Chic Shift Dress

New Website Uses Algorithm To Find Your Perfect Bra

Review: Freedom Bras
They're definitely freeing. Read More »

Aarthi Ramamurthy and Michelle Lam, the founders of a new lingerie website called True & Co., worked at Microsoft before making the leap into the world of undergarments, which might explain their approach to identifying the perfect bra: they built an algorithm. Here’s how it works: True & Co. customers answer a series of questions about cup size, favorite brands, clothing fit, breast shape, and even weight loss patterns; based on this information, the website suggests a customized selection of bras. For a $45 deposit, you get five bras to try on at home, and if you don’t like any of them, you can send them back for free and get your deposit back. Sounds pretty sweet, huh? I just filled out the questionnaire, and while I was impressed with the thoroughness, I did notice that their size options were fairly limited, and to be honest, I’m not sure I’ll ever get on board with bra shopping online, even with a money back guarantee. So, what do you all think? Will you be giving True & Co. a try? [Gizmodo]

Jessica Alba was snapped leaving a London restaurant with a friend this week, and her trendy outfit caught my eye. She’s rocking a neon green T-shirt and a neon orange satchel, completing the outfit with more ’80s-inspired pieces like pointy flats and a black vest. So, what do you think of this look? Is it too much? Just right? Or are you hiding out in a bunker waiting for the neon trend to pass? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Shelter Dogs Ask, “Adopt Me, Maybe?”

We were skeptical about the “Call Me, Maybe” dating cards that surfaced last week, but here’s a variation on the trend that we can totally get behind: “Adopt Me, Maybe” cards for shelter pets. So freakin’ cute. [Buzzfeed]

Must Haves: 7 Cute Canvas Sneakers

Flip-flops and fancy sandals are obviously summer footwear necessities, but I’ve found that a cute pair of light sneakers will also get a lot of wear in the warmer months. Throw ‘em on for spontaneous trips to the river, evening walks with your BFF, or braving the dirt and dust at outdoor concerts. Here are seven pairs in a variety of styles and colors that will be totally trashed by summer’s end–but don’t worry, that’s the way it should be!

Cleaning Fairy Breaks Into Houses, Leaves Bill

If you wake up one morning to find your house sparkling clean, you might be a victim/beneficiary of the Cleaning Fairy, aka Sue Warren, an Ohio woman who has come up with a novel way to grow her cleaning business–breaking into people’s homes, spiffing things up, and leaving a bill. Last week her cleaning spree brought her to Elyria, Ohia, where she broke into the home of an 18-year-old woman named Mallory Bush and left a $75 invoice–including her name and contact info–on a napkin (shown above). When Bush called the phone number provided, Warren told her she was “driving down the street and randomly picked our house and cleaned it cause she was desperate for money.” That’s when Bush called the cops, who confirmed that the “Cleaning Fairy” had similar charges pending in nearby cities. I’d just like to say that if the Cleaning Fairy ever finds herself in Portland, she is more than welcome to make a stop at my apartment. I’ll leave some milk and cookies out, just in case.
