Does your love for books rival your love for cats wearing costumes? Have you been yearning for a way to combine these two interests while also keeping track of important dates? Then you definitely need to order a Puss In Books wall calendar, which features an adorable cat dressed up in adorable costumes corresponding to 12 different quotes from classic literature. From Alice in Wonderland to Pride and Prejudice to Hamlet, there’s a quote (and a cat costume) for everyone. Calendars are $19 each, with $1 from each sale donated to Feline Rescue, a no-kill shelter. I’m planning to just buy a dozen of these and be done with my holiday shopping, because I can’t think of a single one of my friends who wouldn’t appreciate the sight of a cat dressed like a pig next to a quote from Animal Farm. Magical. [Puss In Books Calendar]
Paris Hilton recently popped into a Beverly Hills Chanel store wearing these crazy X-ray leggings, because she’s Paris Hilton. I’m actually slightly obsessed with these leggings on their own merit (look how cool they are!), but do have some concerns about leggings (no matter how cool they are) being worn as pants, and also didn’t Paris Hilton kind of disappear for a few years? Is she back now? I’m seeing tons of pictures of her again and I’m not sure what’s going on. But anyway, what do you guys think of this look? Vote below!
Long distance relationships are hard. Moving away from someone you love (whether it’s your partner or your sister or your best friend) is super hard. Why not give yourself — and them — a little reminder that your hearts might be farther away now, but you’re always connected? These awesome state silhouette key chains from Etsy seller Nelliebead are personalized with your specific locations and a dotted line connecting the two. Not only are they a cute addition to your key ring, they’ll make you think of each other and smile every time you dig your keys out of the bottom of your purse. Perfect.

A conceptual art group called “Bodies in Urban Spaces” have taken their unique form of contortionist street art to Paris, Seoul, and New York, but their recent demonstrations in Bangor, Wales really caught my eye. I especially love seeing the contrast of their bright, modern workout gear and bendy bodies with Bangor’s heavy, ancient architecture. Check out a few more photos of their antics (including one that is sure to cause a few claustrophobic panic attacks) after the jump! Keep reading »
If you want to dress up as a Disney character for Halloween, there are so many to choose from: Snow White, Cinderella, Aladdin, Tinkerbell, and a plethora of colorful villains are all popular choices. But Rob Cockerham wanted to take the whole “Disney costume” idea to the next level; he wanted to dress up as Disneyland. Like, literally the entire theme park. He created the whole thing himself out of foamboard, paint, and accurate maps of the park, giving his face a prime spot in Cinderella’s Castle. Check out more photos of the finished product and the process at his website, and head over to YouTube to see a video of Rob’s costume in action, narrated by his adorable son. [The Mary Sue]
If I told you that the “beer and sausage diet” had been dreamed up by a man, no one would be surprised, right? I mean, half of my guy friends already follow this diet religiously, even though they haven’t officially titled it as such. But if I told you that the man who made up this diet has actually been losing weight on it, you would be kind of surprised, right? Well, it’s true. Keep reading »
