20 Uber-Festive, Modern DIY Holiday Decorations

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / December 3, 2014
I hate spending money on decorations of almost any kind. I paid enough attention in art class that I can handle a hot glue gun and there’s a dollar store down the street, so to me, paying $15 for one decoration seems like a giant rip-off. If, like me, you’re a holiday season enthusiast but… More »

Beauty IRL: All About Eyebrows

By: Megan Reynolds / December 2, 2014
Big, full, dramatic eyebrows are a thing now. If this was 1998, Cara Delevigne’s brows would be waxed within an inch of their life.

Indie band Pomplamoose shared their recent tour’s financial information with their fans last week, and, um, it was … Not so good. They’d like everyone to believe that it was good, but it was not good. The band took in $97,519 in ticket sales for a 28-day tour, which is insane. That is a… More »

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / November 26, 2014
The '90s are my decade. Why do you think I wear so much flannel, make regular references to "90210," and sing "Doll Parts" at karaoke? Because it's forever 1992 in my soul.
