How To Organize Your Fridge Like A Boss

I’m the type of person who constantly looks for household spaces to improve: I want a better-organized desk, better-organized cabinets, better-organized closets. But the one household space that drives me absolutely up the wall is the refrigerator, because negligence of the refrigerator can be both disgusting and costly.

I worked in grocery retail for more than three years, specifically in food production. That means that I spent an average of an hour a day, but up to my entire 8- or 9-hour workday, organizing refrigerators, freezers, and dry food shelves. But it’s one thing when your employer gives you all the tools you need to organize an industrial-size refrigerator, and quite another when you’re trying to keep tabs on your food in your own home. Most of us don’t grow up doing anything but sort of shoving food away, treating the refrigerator as a procrastination tool (“I’ll get to this later, maybe, or maybe not, I don’t know, I can’t see what’s in there so I don’t care anymore”) rather than, say, a health tool.

Ugg Boots Are Back, Discuss

Vogue has declared Uggs “back,” which leaves me to wonder: did they ever go away? Were they ever truly in to begin with or were they always just in a niche league of their own? “The Return Of The Ugg Boot” on British Vogue‘s blog asks, “In the last month, how many times have you declined to step into your razzle-dazzle heels and opted for a pair of Uggs instead? Once? Twice?” The answer is zero times, Vogue, but I haven’t been wearing razzle-dazzle heels too often lately either, so maybe I’m the wrong person to answer that question. Vogue continues to inform us in the post that we peasants at last have permission from the fashion kingdom to wear the boots once again, but only if we full a “five-rule definitive style code” when doing so. Whoever wears Uggs in 2015, aside from normcore enthusiasts and It Girls, does so because A) they rightly prioritize comfort in their lives or B) they are badass fashion bosses who do whatever they want, Anna Wintour be damned, so I’m not really sure who Vogue thinks they’re giving sartorial permission to at this point. Either way, I’m not sure whether their comeback is supposed to make me happy or sad, because while they really are a little bit fugly, they’re also the comfiest and loveliest gift you can possibly give your feet on a winter morning.

Must Haves: 10 Bad Weather Boots That Aren’t Hideous

It only took 13 years, but I finally feel like I understand how to dress cute and comfortably for the face-numbingly cold East Coast winter. I have a couple truly warm coats, a pile of snuggly sweaters that don’t make my neck break out in hives and finally understand why the person who invented ear muffs deserves a medal. But I am still at a loss as to what shoes to wear on those days where it’s snowy and freezing out and my outfit-matching pumps are realllllly not ideal for sidestepping massive piles of dog piss-stained slush. Snow boots are the answer, but they’re so ugly, right? Well, most are, but not all, especially if you’re open to adding a certain rugged twist to your overall aesthetic. Here are 10 pairs of bad weather boots that you won’t be pissed at for ruining your cute outfit.

Thanks to the good people at Amazon, a nifty 6-foot meditation pyramid can be yours for a sweet price (plus a shipping fee)! Hurry though, there are only five left in stock!

Its “transcendental effect” can be used to heal long-distance loved ones by places their pictures inside! For only $349! Spiritual elevation: only for the one percent. Am I missing something here?

For $10, This L.A. Artist Will Tattoo Any Two Words Of Your Choice On Her Body

Los Angeles muralist Ilma Gore will trade you ad space on her skin for the insanely low cost of a $10 Kickstarter pledge. She’s trying to cover her entire body with tattoos for her next exhibition, meaning, to be clear, that the process of getting tattooed from head to toe is the exhibition itself.

Why? “Each persons name to me represents YOU the main protagonist in your own story. I will be covered in a hundred tiny stories.” Well, and with a goal of raising $6000, it’d really be more like six hundred tiny stories. That’s a super-beautiful idea! She’s six feet tall, so she has the canvas to do it. Just check out her super-helpful before and after model photos: Keep reading »

Beauty IRL: Trust Me, You Should Wear Blush

Beauty IRL: Trust Me, You Should Wear Blush
Don’t fear the blush, even though it is intimidating and weird. It’s the a product many write off as completely unnecessary. but is actually really, really important. Think about it this way: Once you’ve done all that you need to do to your face, you’re left with a beautiful, even-toned canvas — but it’s all the same color. You need some rouge, pumpkin.
