Gallery: Breast Milk Is The New Water

cheese 082509 g2 jpg
Inspired by a trip to France, a woman decided to put the bags of frozen breast milk in her fridge to good use by making cottage cheese with them. I’m not sure why she was stockpiling her own milk, but apparently she had made soup with her own stuff a few weeks prior? To get the milk to curdle, the woman poured in some lemon juice. It didn’t work and she ran out of lemons so she tried vinegar. After dumping an entire bottle of vinegar into the pot, she consulted Google and found that breast milk doesn’t curdle. Fail.

Quickies!: Paula Abdul To Host VH1′s “Divas”

  • On September 17, you can catch Paula Abdul in her first post-”American Idol” gig—on VH1′s “Divas.” She’ll host the special, which will feature performances by peeps like Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus and Leona Lewis. [PopCrunch] — Don’t get us started on whether these three actually qualify for the word “diva.”
  • As if Susan Boyle’s looks hadn’t been insulted enough, Robin Williams has been asked to play the singer in a biopic. [NY Post] — Poor Susan. Didn’t they see her cute makeover in Harper’s Bazaar?
  • Bob Dylan’s upcoming gig has nothing to do with music. He said, “I am talking to a couple of car companies about being the voice of their GPS system.” [TwentyFourBit] — And I thought the answer is blowin’ in the wind?

    Britain Recruits Former Pickpockets To Become “Putpockets”

    If you’ve ever been to London or seen the movie “Oliver,” you know that London has a booming pickpocket population. But if you’re hanging around Trafalgar Square or Covent Garden this month, you might witness “putpockets” slipping cash into your pocket or purse! A broadband provider is funding an initiative where 20 former pickpockets slip five 20-pound notes to the same wanderers they might have stolen from in a former life. The cops are in on the plan, which in total will distribute more than 100,000 pounds! Chris Fitch, a former pickpocket who’s manning the project said, “It feels good to give something back for a change—and Britons certainly need it in the current economic climate. Every time I put money back in someone’s pocket, I feel less guilty about the fact I spent many years taking it out.” What a nice gesture! Though I know I’d be a little freaked out if a stranger was that close to my butt without so much as a kiss. [Reuters] Keep reading »

    Lauren Bush Wants To Feed The World

    OK, jaded fashion lovers, listen up. We’re all tired of hearing about designers who donate two percent of the proceeds from a random T-shirt to some backwater pet charity in Papua New Guinea. (Note to all publicists: We see right through you.) But Kenneth Cole and Lauren Bush have collaborated on a Feed Health backpack that’s actually going to make a difference. For each of the $125 bags sold, another one will be donated to a health care worker in sub-Saharan Africa. The bag will be filled with medical supplies, like syringes and bandages. Condoms. A cell phone. Oh, and a scale to weigh newborn babies. Starting tomorrow, the backpack will be available at select Kenneth Cole stores and online here (with free shipping!). So, no more hoarding your pennies. Besides, you can’t even buy Givenchy on sale for that price! Keep reading »

    H&M Gets The (Winter) Party Started

    We know summer isn’t over yet, but the style masterminds over at H&M are already thinking ahead when it comes to our holiday party wardrobes. They’ve debuted looks from the Fall/Winter 2009 Party collection and it looks pretty festive to us. The line ranges from outerwear and dresses to shoes and bracelets, and overall, the line is pretty eclectic since no two items seemed to be designed with the same theme in mind. But one thing ties the whole collection together: boldness. You see it in the uber-chunky necklaces, the sexy structured dresses and champagne-colored faux fur jackets. Every piece makes a strong statement, and we hear it loud and clear: We are young, we are chic, and we don’t care about hypothermia. [Stylistic] Keep reading »

    Getting Cast On “The Hills” Isn’t Easy But Pays Bank

    Doug Reinhardt, the baseball player who dated Lauren Conrad, recently reunited with Paris Hilton, and has the douchiest website ever, can’t seem to get himself back onto “The Hills.” According to the New York Post, the other show regulars get paid ridiculous amounts of money for their appearances. But Doug guest stars for free and just can’t seem to snag a contract. [NY Post]

    Yes, yes, we’ve figured out by now that “The Hills” are alive with the sound of bulls**t. But how exactly does one get “cast” on this show? How do these contracts and payouts work? And who’s raking in the most? Read on. Keep reading »

    Quick Pic: Some Art With Your Coffee?

    Loving This Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 Cuff

    Leave it to Chanel to design an item that’s at once classic and quirky. Case in point: this Russian doll-inspired bangle from their pre-fall 2009 collection. The bracelet is made from enamel and wood and features an iconic Imperial Russian symbol, the Matriochka doll. We love the combination of the bright red lips plus ubiquitous logo. It will set you back a few hundred dollars, but it looks sort of worth it, no? Also, between this and Guerlain’s new makeup collection, we totally smell an all things Russian trend coming on. [Chic Report] Keep reading »
