“Nashville” star Hayden Panettiere is currently traveling around Croatia with her Ukranian boxer boyfriend/possible fiance Wladimir Klitschko. The happy couple is famous for their drastic height difference (she’s 5’1″, he’s 6’6″), and Hayden played up her diminutive stature by tweeting this picture of herself with a giant tub of Nutella with the caption, “Breakfast, anyone?” Yes, please! Pass me that gigantic spoon and let’s do this. [Daily Mail]
As much as we can all appreciate a beautifully layered braid or a pair of structured twists, sometimes — especially in the disgustingly hot summer months — you just want to pull your hair back with a few bobby pins and call it a day. I love the idea of using multiple bobby pins in different bright colors, as shown here by the lovely Katharine McPhee. Suddenly your desperate attempt to get your bangs off your face becomes a bona fide hairstyle! Another bonus? This style is doable for literally any hair length or type — short, long, straight, curly, and anything in between. Try these Scunci no slip bobby pins, which come in a rainbow of summery colors, to get the look for yourself.
I’m not sure we should be encouraging anyone to put firecrackers in their mouth (I’m sure there was a 2001 episode of “Jackass” that already did that), but if you are yearning to munch on a firework without, you know, dying, you might want to whip up a batch of these firecracker cupcakes. They don’t just look like the real thing — they’re also filled with Pop Rocks to cause a mini explosion in your mouth. How festive! Happy 4th of July! [She Knows via Neatorama]
A couple months ago, we saw an artist’s rendition of what Barbie might look like without makeup (and a few nights of no sleep). Now artist Nickolay Lamm has created a mockup version of Barbie based on the average measurements of 19-year-old American woman. As we all know, if Barbie were real she would spend most of her time tipping over due to her completely unrealistic, back-breaking proportions. Average Barbie looks much more sturdy, no?

Every summer I get completely obsessed with the combination of white jeans and orange blouses. It’s such a fun, bold, Creamsicle-esque look, and yet I’m always too scared to wear it myself due to my remarkable propensity for spilling condiments on myself. This summer I’m feeling particularly motivated to be brave and achieve my style goal (possibly while wearing a full-length bib), and Eva Longoria is my muse. Want to join me in stealing her style?

“I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests … I wanted it to be over the top. I’m obsessed with castles and I love French décor and goth. I found this castle in France and we visited it and it was perfect.”
–New bride Avril Lavigne opens up about her weekend wedding to Chad Kroeger in an upcoming Hello! Canada cover story. More details that I know none of you care about but I am obsessing over: the ceremony was held at the Chateau de la Napoule medieval castle near Cannes, Lavigne wore a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown and carried a matching black bouquet, and the 110 guests danced to a playlist that included Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bruno Mars.

As a wise crab named Sebastian once said, “The human world … it’s a mess.” Anyone who’s tried online dating can attest to that. But dating can be an even more confusing proposition when you’re a human who dresses up as a mermaid for a living, like Melissa Dawn of Florida. Dawn, 31, is a professional mermaid who can hold her breath underwater for 5 minutes and has mastered the art of swimming gracefully while wearing a 60-pound mermaid tale. She has a huge following online and often performs at Sea World. Up until recently, Dawn was resigned to being a single fish. “I was never looking for love, because I’m so business-oriented,” she says. But she had no idea her soulmate was swimming her way… Keep reading »
Dear Cookie Butter,
I wasn’t aware of your existence until I was standing in line at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago and noticed a display of jars with a sign that said “LIMIT TWO PER CUSTOMER.” I went to investigate but was stopped by a middle-aged man with a handlebar mustache wearing a Gryffindor t-shirt. Apparently sensing my curiosity, he held his hand up and shook his head. “You don’t want to buy that,” he said ominously.
“Why?” I asked. “What is it?”
“It’s cookie butter,” he said, “and once you start buying it, you will never stop.” Keep reading »
Kristen Stewart showed up at the Paris Haute Couture shows in this bold black and white ensemble, comprised of itty bitty leather shorts, a white boucle jacket, super smoky eyes, and her signature scowl/smile (oh K.Stew, never change!). As tempting as it is to write off this outfit purely because of the gratuitous fingerless leather gloves, I actually think Kristen looks totally, totally fierce. What say you?
