Many of us probably take tampons for granted. I mean, they’re nice in that they prevent us from bleeding on our light-colored pants, but but did you know that they could also save your life? Survivalist Creek Stewart has highlighted 10 ways you could use a humble tampon to extend your life in the wild, and trust me–it’s not quite what you’d expect.

Oh, Florida what strange gifts you deliver us. This month is officially Naked Ladies On The Roadside month. On Tuesday, Tracy Mabb was arresting for causing a traffic hazard by exposing herself. “She first started by pulling off her top and revealing her breasts, but didn’t stop there. She also gave drivers and pedestrians a full view of her ‘vagina and buttocks.’ The arrest reports claims that she did so with a ‘complete vulgar and indecent manner.’ When confronted by police, she refused to put her clothes on, and shouted, ‘I don’t give a f**k,’” the Sun Sentinel reported.
At least she didn’t pleasure herself like the woman last week. What do we think? Are bath salts to blame here? Whatever the cause for her indecent exposure, her mugshot it epic. Is it just me or does she kind of look like Dave Pirner from Soul Asylum? Click on through for more amazing female mug shots. [The Gloss]
Chanel events always, without fail, draw an extraordinarily dressed crowd — Karl Lagerfeld, after all, only associates with the most fabulous of people (and yes, the same standard applies to his choice in pets). The Parisian fashion house feted the opening of a 113-photo exhibit to preface Lagerfeld’s upcoming photo book, a collaboration with former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld. “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited” features celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West, and Tilda Swinton celebrating — what else? — Chanel’s iconic little black jacket. If you’re in the New York City area, the exhibit opens Friday, June 8 (that’s tomorrow, y’all) at 18 Wooster St. and runs for a week, and the book comes out on August 15. If you can’t make it to check out the show, and don’t feel up to cashing out $98 for a book (me neither), here’s the next best thing: the good, the bad, and the “what in the name of Coco was she thinking” from last night’s event. Commençons!
Random story time: when I was an intern, I had no style. I wore a pair of Nine wedge flip-flops every day that made my feet bleed. They don’t make interns like they used to — I want to steal all the outfits that Interns Shannen, Daley, and Morgan have worn so far. I can assure you no one wanted to steal my style back in 1997 when I interned at Jane magazine. Anyway, let’s see what we’re wearing today!
I used to harbor an inexplicable hatred for button-down blouses. Actually, I can explain. I don’t mean the actual blouses themselves, or on other people — I actually would see other people wearing them and be jealous of how good they looked. The problem was when I would try them on myself. Suddenly, my shoulders looked broad, my boobs flattened, and my hips enormous. I continued to try them every once in a while in hopes that I would one day be the type of girl who looked good in them… and now I am! My body didn’t change or anything, I just realized that I was going for the wrong type of shirt. Starchy button-downs still look terrible on my difficult-to-dress figure, but it turns out that a semi-sheer, silky blouse might even be my best look. They don’t fare well for the summertime, which is why I’m turning to the sleeveless variety to carry me through. Click through for 10 stylish, flattering sleeveless blouses perfect for wearing right now!
The CMT Awards come but once a year — a celebration of all things country music. We’re not particularly huge country music fans, but we can appreciate the way country music has veritably dominated pop music these days — that stuff is everywhere. And so it seems not that surprising to see mainstream stars like Jordin Sparks attending and Kristen Bell co-hosting the event. Carrie Underwood took home the award for Video of the Year — and also won kudos for her sparkly outfit. There seemed to be lots of champagne-colored frocks on the red carpet, which worked for some, and not so much for others. Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments.
