Watch This: A Spot-On Rundown Of The Regulars At Every Hipster Coffee Shop

Hipster Coffee Shop Parody
"I'm writing a novel."

This parody of all the most obnoxious customers who frequent hipster coffee shops might seem a little out there (an aged Sumatra roast is served in a desk fountain, and Michael Caine shows up at one point), but for anyone who’s ever worked at a coffee shop, you know the caricatures are painfully accurate. I must say, though, that I totally relate to the guy who brings in his entire desktop computer and then spends the whole day sheepishly requesting an outlet and free refills. As someone who spends quite a few work days at coffee shops, I feel you, bro. [YouTube]

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: The Chic, Short Bob

Everyone is going hogwild for the lob right now (that’s short for long bob, if you’re not familiar with hair-related portmanteaus), but seeing this photo of model Sui He is a great reminder that the short bob will always be a classic. It’s simultaneously sexy, chic, polished, put together, and  playful. Don’t ask me how that’s possible, it just is. The best part? Sui’s hair here is actually a faux bob, which means you can get the same look whether or not you’re ready to chop off a few inches for realzies. Here’s a video tutorial for long-haired ladies who want to give it a try.

Bravo! Zady Calls Out Fast Fashion Companies With A Full-Page Ad In The Wall Street Journal

Fast Fashion Addiction
Compassionate Fashion: 5 Ways To Curb Your Fast Fashion Addiction
5 ways to break your Forever 21 habit! Read More »

Yesterday, ethical fashion collective Zady issued a battle cry against fast fashion companies like Forever 21, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Zara, and Topshop in the form of a full-page, no-punches-pulled ad in The Wall Street Journal. “Fast fashion is fast food,” the ad declares, listing some of the horrific side effects of our culture’s fast fashion addiction: exploited workers (mostly women), toxic pollution, and landfills overflowing with cheap, disposable clothing. It’s time to change our shopping habits. It’s time to value quality over quantity. It’s time to demand sustainable practices, fair wages, and safe work environments from the companies we support with our dollars. As Zady’s website puts it, “We should not be compelled to accept throwaway goods as a way of life.” Forgive me for being less than eloquent, but FUCK YES. Keep reading »

Travel Porn: 6 Stunning Rooftop Pools

Found: My New Favorite Running Shorts

In my continuing quest to become a runner, I’ve conquered a number of mental obstacles, but until recently, had yet to figure out the solution to a more tangible challenge: finding running clothes that are comfortable and functional for my big-busted, short, curvy body (not exactly the shape most athletic companies cater to). After finally tracking down my dream sports bra, my next goal was to find a pair of running shorts. The requirements:

  • Thick spandex, because those flimsy nylon running shorts just don’t cut it.
  • Don’t fall down, ride up, pinch, sag, or require any adjustments while running.
  • Don’t make my thighs look like freshly stuffed sausages.
  • Have a zip pocket for my keys, gym ID card, etc.
  • Not too short.

That’s not too much to ask, is it? After buying and trying many different types of running tights, leggings, and shorts with results that ranged from “god, no!” to “meh,” I took Moving Comfort’s 7.5″ Endurance Shorts for a test run (literally), and fell in love. They meet all my requirements and more. Here’s why they’re awesome: Keep reading »

Willie Nelson’s Stolen Armadillo & 6 Other Celeb Pet Kidnappings

The country music world was rocked last week when news broke that Willie Nelson’s famous armadillo mascot had been stolen. The iconic stuffed animal (I had to read the story, like, six times to figure out it wasn’t a real, live armadillo and must admit I was a bit disappointed), which always accompanies Nelson on stage, was nabbed during a fan meet and greet after a Las Vegas concert. Nelson realized the armadillo was missing after his tour bus had already hit the road back to California. His crew called the venue in a panic, requesting the surveillance tapes to help track down the thief, but apparently the mounting guilt had already proved too much for the armadillo snatcher. The next morning, “an apologetic man” drove up to the resort and dropped off a shoe box with instructions to return it to Willie. Inside was the beloved armadillo. Willie’s kidnapped “pet” might have been stuffed, but other famous folks have had their living, breathing pets stolen out from under them.

Meet The “Geep,” A Goat-Sheep Hybrid That Will Steal Your Heart And Save The World

These days we have plenty of evidence that civilization is going to hell in a handbasket: Farrah Abraham’s erotic novelist career, elected officials making laws based on the belief that women are nothing more than barely sentient baby factories, the continuing existence of James Franco. BUT WAIT! There is finally a reason to celebrate, a beacon of hope in a dark world, the chosen one that will save us all — it’s a goat/sheep hybrid called a geep. The geep (rhymes with BEEEEEEEEEP!!!) sprang forth from the torrid love affair of a sheep and a goat in Ireland. According to the surprised farmer who discovered the unlikely progeny, the geep is quick, mischievous, wooly, and in perfect health.

Check out a video of this magical creature in action after the jump, and let me know if you want one of the “I BEEP FOR GEEP” bumper stickers that I’m making after work today. [Want. -- Amelia] Keep reading »
