I have so many conflicting feelings about gym selfies. I usually just sort of frown at them, shake my head, and move on. They’re the kind of thing that other people do, and while I totally respect their right to do it, I just don’t understand why. This came to a head this morning when, after I came home from the gym, I looked on Twitter and saw a gym selfie a woman had tweeted.

We’re officially in mid-December, so if you haven’t bought a winter coat yet, you likely live in a really warm climate (damn you, Southern Californians!), already have a coat you love (RESPECT), or we have just been waiting for the winter blues to kick in so that you can make yourself feel better by indulging in a little shallow consumerism. What? It works. Regardless, here are six celeb-endorsed styles to get you started…
I really, really enjoy cooking and am pretty much the anti-thesis of a picky eater. When I look at a menu, everything looks and sounds delicious. That said, when I go into a grocery store or peruse the local farmer’s market, I find myself strangely intimidated by certain vegetables. It took me awhile to finally get the courage to cook Brussels sprouts and kale, for example, but now I am obsessssssed with them both. So, it was with that same courage that I decide to cook parsnips as part of my Thanksgiving feast and, true to form, I fell in love. I’ve already roasted them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper — so good! — but I’m eager to use parsnips in a bunch of other ways. Here are nine recipes I’m jonesing to try…
Dyed armpit hair is being touted as a hot new trend, but if a square morning news program has picked it up and most of their source images are from Tumblr, I’m going to assume this has actually been around for quite a while.

Not surprisingly, the news anchors are rude and judgey about it, but why the hell not dye your pits? While I’m more of a shaving gal for the time being, I’m loving the neon aesthetic. Have you done this? Would you?
I don’t know what’s in the air at Target, but it’s practically impossible to make a quick trip to that store. Walking inside is like stepping into a giant labyrinth, but instead of worrying you’ll never escape, you’re too busy being distracted by all those shiny clearance racks. How do we explain this phenomenon!? [22 Words]
You gotta go when you gotta go, even if you’re Santa Claus. And this year, St. Nick got caught with his pants down. PooPourri, a pre-poo spray that helps eliminate stinky odors, has come up with a clever, hilarious Christmas video to let everybody know that no matter who you are or where you find yourself when nature calls, you should be armed and ready to drop a deuce, or in Santa’s case, “to make your dingleberries smell like jingle-berries.” Check out the video to watch two little girls chastise Santa for making their house smell like “a gingerbread manslaughter.”
