No matter how many hair tutorials I diligently study or videos I watch, I have yet to master ethereal, half-up, half-down hairstyles like this one. I almost wrote this one off too, assuming the curling and spraying and bobby pinning how-to would prove too complex for me, but I’m glad I scrolled down to see… READ MORE »
Have you ever made a sandwich and thought, “Everything I’ve ever done in my life pales in comparison to the amazing achievement that is this sandwich”?

I am one of those people who doesn’t mind messiness as long as I don’t see it. This is why many of my drawers are stuffed with receipts and knick knacks, my bathroom cabinets are horrifically disorganized, and the top of my TV has never known the sweet touch of a dust rag. This is… READ MORE »
This is a clothing label produced by a Japanese brand called, fittingly, Fatyo, which has opted to forgo the traditional sizing model of small, medium, large, and extra-large, and instead label clothing with “twitch,” “skinny,” “fat,” and “jumbo.” Well, these terms are definitely … descriptive, if not particularly flattering. Would you ever buy a piece… READ MORE »

There are a lot of places women don’t get taken seriously as seriously as men — workplaces, sci-fi conventions, the military, politics — but a new study just proved that our culture’s tendency to think of women as weak and inconsequential actually has a measurable death toll, in a surprising form: hurricanes. Weather researchers noticed… READ MORE »
Most Brad Paisley songs include at least one shoutout to the joys of a cold beer. This is ostensibly why the Westboro Baptist Church (AKA the “God Hates Everyone” people) showed up to picket his concert in Kansas this weekend. Because God hates drunks, didn’t you know? Brad decided to make the most of the… READ MORE »

Over the weekend, a friend of mine was telling me that she was headed out to run some errands recently when her husband chimed in, “Hey, I think I’ll come with you.” Normally very open to any help she can get while grocery shopping, my friend was shocked when instead of replying, “Sure!”, she found… READ MORE »
Whether it’s a coworker, brother, friend, or dad, we all know an “Actually Guy.” He can’t resist letting any insignificant detail slip into a conversation without offering a correction.

Me: Ooh, I liked that song. Thumbs up, Pandora.
Pandora: Great! Glad you liked it. Since you liked that song, I think you will LOVE this next song: it’s called “Sail” by AWOLNATION.

This serene scene isn’t a buried relic from the Roman Empire or a magical underground fairy beach (which was my first thought, honestly), it’s actually a reservoir buried under one of the busiest, most crowded cities in the world. Built in 1874, the tank lies undisturbed beneath the streets in the south of Paris, and… READ MORE »
Iggy Azalea made waves when she released her single, “Fancy,” along with a “Clueless”-themed music video, but for many of us, there was and always will be only one song named “Fancy,” and that’s the Reba McEntire country classic.

“Wow” is all I have to say after watching this beautiful video that tells the story of Ryland Whittington, a bright, fun, loving little boy who happens to be transgender.
