Watch This: An Infomercial For The Useless Sports Bra Every Big-Boobed Woman Has Already Tried

Most women with big boobs have tried it at one point or another: you get fed up with the complete uselessness of your sports bra, so you just put on another one. And sometimes a third. I remember commiserating with the other big-busted girls in the junior high locker room as we all…

Travel Porn: 6 Cheese Shops To Add To Your Bucket List

My favorite thing about traveling is eating, and my favorite thing to eat is cheese. If I won the lottery tomorrow, my next big trip would be a cheese-themed world tour, stopping off in every country to sample their best fromage, sip expertly paired wines, and go to bed every night bloated and blissfully happy.

God, is there anything better than a hairstyle that looks complicated but actually takes 2 minutes? I don't think so. This "braided" bun ("braid" in quotes because there's no actual braiding necessary) would bring a perfectly polished, flirty vibe to a date, brunch with friends, a wedding, or traffic court.

The Soapbox: The Hardest Thing About Not Eating Meat Is Other People’s Reactions

My boyfriend and I decided to give up eating meat about a year ago, shortly after we moved to Nashville. We're pescetarians, so we're not completely vegetarian, but I'd say we eat a completely meat-free diet about 90 percent of the time.

At this time last year, I was making the longest move of my life so far: from Portland to Nashville. This afternoon, I'm making the shortest: our new place is about two miles from this one. After moving across the country, I assumed this move would be a breeze. I mean, a two-mile…
