Toast! It's not just for breakfast! I am of the opinion that more often than not, toasting a piece of bread makes it better. And slathering on some sort of mix of toppings makes it a meal. The next time you're hungry but feeling too lazy to cook anything crazy, whip up one of these… More »
I don't know what inspires people to not just graffiti bathroom walls, but actually write commands. And it's ubiquitous -- at least half of what you'll read in any bathroom is a command of some sort. Bathroom graffiti-ers know that you've got nothing else to look at while you're on the john (I mean, presumably),… More »
Kim's relationship with Kanye West ushered in an era of high fashion and inspired Kim to embrace neutrals and looks that are timelessly chic. I'm not going to lie, it's definitely influenced the way I look at her. I feel like the Kardashians' goal has always been to make their lifestyle look aspirational to their… More »
We've all had one of those
days, in which we're full of bitterness and taking it out on everyone but the one person who actually made us angry. Luckily for society, I've never been put on sandwich board duty at a job on one of those days. Restaurant and coffee shop employees of the world, I envy… More »
I am an unapologetic flower freak. I spend an exorbitant amount of money on bouquets year-round, post pictures of them on Instagram with captions like, "Spring blooms <3" (I know I'm the worst), and would decorate my house in a floor-to-ceiling floral motif in a hot minute if my boyfriend would let me. For now,… More »
Before stars were stars, they had to climb the Hollywood ladder just like everybody else. They starred in small television guest spots and low-budget films to kickstart their careers, but achieved an entirely new level of success once they proved they could cut it in film, too. Jennifer Aniston will always be Rachel Green from "Friends,"

Gasp! The divinely talented, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o
is on the cover of the July issue of Vogue!
And, surprise, surprise, she looks stunnnnnnninnnnnnng.
The interview with Hamish Bowles is also interesting, detailing Nyong'o's childhood in Nairobi, where her father is currently a senator in the Kenyan parliament; catching the acting bug as a youngster performing plays for… More »
Succulents are low maintenance plants that provide owners the illusion of a green thumb. Unlike more temperamental plants, succulents simply need a few hours of sunlight and a bit of water. Because these plants have shallow roots, the planter possibilities are endless! The hardest part is picking which pot to plant yours in... More »
Now that you have your summer tan, it's time to make your bronzed skin pop! The best way to do that is with some SHIMMER. Give yourself the gift of glowing skin, luminescent eyes and an all-over luster with lightweight beauty products that have a hint of shine. This season, I've stocked up on affordable… More »
The wonderful thing about a hefty amount of geek/nerd culture is that it is super-optimistic. John Green, author of A Fault In Our Stars,
says that nerds are basically people who are “unironically enthusiastic … too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.
” Which is awesome! The first time I hung out with my now-boyfriend, I… More »
I'm sad. After years of depending on J. Crew's Capri flip-flop as my go-to summer sandal, the company went and broke what was already perfect by pushing out a new version with slightly thicker straps and this weird supportive thingy on the heel. The difference between the old and new versions is marginal but noticeable
and just… More »
Where are all the curly haired women in Hollywood? I’m not talking about curls sculpted with hot rollers and curling irons -- show me women with wild, natural
curls. The kinds of curls real women have.
I am one of those women, and I'm always disappointed to see straight hair dominating the the big and small… More »

There is something wonderfully nostalgic about tater tots. Tater tots were the highlight of my school cafeteria lunches -- nothing matched their crispy greasy goodness. These days, I prefer French fries
, but these creative creations have me wanting to stock up and go to town... More »
Etsy is the go-to place to find homemade soaps and Christmas ornaments, so why not
feminist T-shirts? But maybe a simple "This Is What A Feminist Looks Like" tee won't get the point across. Maybe only a vagina dentata T-shirt will cut it. Don't worry, Etsy sellers have got you covered! [Image of a confused woman via Shutterstock

I recently bought a slouchy chambray jumpsuit and I have been living in it ever since. Its lightweight fabric makes it perfect for summer and
I'm convinced it's not just for lazy days -- it can be dressed up for a hot date and styled to be appropriate for work. To show just how versatile this piece… More »
GUYS. The "Game of Thrones" finale is THIS WEEKEND. How did the season go by this fast? Why must we wait another year until we get our fix of our favorite Westerosis? OK, to be fair, I started binge-watching "Game of Thrones"
in the beginning of April this year. I’ve been sadly skeptical of the… More »
I've found that it's surprisingly easy
to find clothing and accessories that are up to ethical and sustainable standards, but when it comes to shoes, the pickings are few and far between. There's certainly stylish, handcrafted, responsibly sourced footwear out there -- if you're willing to spend a minimum of $300 on a pair of shoes --… More »
Turnips are by no means a glamorous food. They're a hard root vegetable with a rough, bitter peel that you may only recognize from going to the farmer's market, picking one up, and saying, "Damn, that is one ugly radish." But listen up, people: turnips are SO GOOD when prepared correctly, they're packed full of… More »
