Is It Really Bad To Wear Makeup To The Gym?

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 21:45
Is It Really Bad To WearPhotographed by Aaron Richter. Whether you're a green juice junkie, a SoulCycle addict, or just trying to maintain a working relationship with your skinny jeans, healthy living is always in style. So... we've tapped the wellness masterminds at Well+Good -- the go-to-site for cool, healthy-leaning women coast to coast -- to keep you in-the-know. We've long considered wearing makeup to the gym a major skin-care no-no. And when we asked Well+Good readers if they wear makeup during a workout, it was a chorus of "No way! No clogged pores!" But, we still see a sea of post-spin-class dripping-mascara raccoon eyes. So something's obviously up. (And someone's obviously busted.) So why are women from SoulCycle to SLT getting their sweat on in their makeup -- places where it's totally acceptable to be...

Is the Song 'Royals' by Lorde Racist?

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 17:36
Is the Song 'Royals' by LordeThis question originally appeared on Quora in regards to this article. Answer by Aaron Ellis, Former Music Critic with Artist Farm This song is not about a race. It's about a culture. Not African... American or rap culture, but the materialism and excess that is overtaking pop culture. If I wanted to, I could interpret this song as an attack on 2 Chainz, Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, and Lil Wayne. However, based on their recent music, videos, and behavior, I could make an equally strong argument that this song is directed at Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber. Heck, Miley has a song on the radio right now that talks about, as Lorde puts it, "trippin in the bathroom" (referring to the line in "We Can't Stop" about "everyone body in line at the bathroom, trying to get a line in the bathroom," or...

'Key & Peele' Demonstrate How Not To Be A Zombie

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 12:32
'Key & Peele' Demonstrate HowWith Halloween upon us, one of the more popular costumes this year will again be the ever-lurching zombie. Thanks to the meteoric success of "The Walking Dead," zombies are as popular as ever. But... just dressing up like the undead isn't enough. As this "Key & Peele" sketch shows, one must know how to behave like a zombie. David Giuntoli -- who knows a thing or two about things that go bump in the night thanks to his star turn on NBC's "Grimm" -- appeared in the sketch as the star of a long-running zombie series. Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele play zombie extras. But while Key is a veteran of the production, this is Peele's first time as an extra. He was not up to the task. Stumbling around, shambling slowly, and groaning are all acceptable forms of zombie behavior. However, saying,...

Vans 2013 Holiday ScotchgardSpecial for the holiday season is a new collection from Vans - the Scotchgard collection.

Pamela Anderson Cuts Her LongFor the first time in 20 years, Pamela Anderson has short hair, and it looks amazing on her. Anderson has had the same long, platinum locks since 1992. So, it was a shock to see the 46-year-old... bombshell step out in Los Angeles Wednesday (Oct. 30) with not just a haircut, but a super short pixie cut, notes Us Weekly. The former "Baywatch" star was photographed with her ex-husband and rumored boyfriend, Rick Saloman, walking through a parking lot.

She is the latest celeb to shed her tresses; earlier this week, Jennifer Hudson also debuted a super-short hairdo at BET's Black Girls Rock event.

2 Monumental D.C. Buildings, 2Photo: Courtesy of Carla Cabrera. I vividly remember the first time my family drove through downtown Washington, D.C., as we passed the majestic Greek revival architecture with its unforgettable... marble and sandstone facades. As a 12-year-old from South America, I found these structures quite magical and unlike anything I had ever seen before. Today, I'm lucky to live across the street from a few of the same buildings that amazed me as a kid -- and they've continued to inspire me in an unconventional arena: my clothes. This outfit is inspired by the columns, marble, and exhibits at the National Portrait Gallery in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, my favorite building in Washington, D.C.

Each of the mini models was donning a neon-colored dress, which will be the first piece in Junior Gaultier Couture. But before you pull out the credit card, you should take a serious look at the price tag. This dress, which contains Swarovski crystal details, costs about $1,200. While many (OK, most) won't be able to afford this one-of-a-kind piece, it is easily one every little girl would love. Inspired by his Spring 2013 Haute Couture...

Adventures in Candle Magic and Minor Witchery

New York Mag - 31 Oct 2013 22:25

Convicted Mobster's IndiegogoHe's so excited. The ex-mobster with lofty culinary ambitions had no trouble hitting his crowd-funding goals, so now he gets to expand his mafia-themed restaurant. Angelo Lutz — a.k.a. the Kitchen... Consigliere, a.k.a. Luzzi, a.k.a. Big Ange — reopened his New Jersey Italian restaurant last week in a space three times the size of his first location, complete with sconces shaped like nine-millimeter handguns and a "Joey's Pork Chops" special in honor of South Jersey mob boss "Skinny Joey" Merlino. Aww. He raised nearly $35,000 on Indiegogo, and thousands more from investors, he tells the Washington Post, and the restaurant expansion is just the beginning. He's gunning for Kitchen Consigliere franchises in other cities, and his own Mob Wives–meets–Top Chef reality show, of course....

Why Halloween Kicks Fashion Week's Butt

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 22:15
Why Halloween Kicks FashionI regularly meet fashion editors who don't like Halloween. And, every time, it's baffling. It's like a chef not enjoying Thanksgiving or a pyrotechnician disavowing Independence Day. If your life's... passion involves dressing up (or helping others dress up) in evocative, transformative clothes, how can you not enjoy a holiday dedicated to just that? Hate prepackaged Lycra costumes and candy-corn-flavored cocktails if you must, but you can't hate Halloween. Photographed by Maayan Zilberman. This is my boyfriend dressed up as Dr. Zizmor, a NYC-famous, subway-advertised dermatologist. I'm the before-and-after case, and I painstakingly created each of those zits with Elmer's glue, foundation, and red eyeshadow. They'd actually ooze when you popped them! In fact, I'd go so far as to say that if I...

Survey Says: Stop DrinkingPhotographed by Angela Pham. Coffee is, more or less, our lifeblood here in New York City. It's not just corporate greed that placed a Starbucks on every corner; us New Yorkers need our fix, and we... needed it, like, 10 minutes ago. Some of us (like this humble author) drink a cup while putting our faces on, grab another on the way into the office, and then another after lunch. It's not a stretch to call it an addiction, but hey, vices, man. Turns out our penchant for all that coffee in the morning is actually doing more damage to our bodies than we probably intend. Fact.CoDesign explains that our bodies don't actually need that cup of Joe right from the get-go. Due to our circadian rhythms, we naturally produce the energy caffeine gives us around 8 a.m. When we ingest coffee at that hour,...

Watch: The Zombie Apocalypse Is Real

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 22:10
In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would you do? Where would you go? If zombies were literally everywhere you turned, what would be your plan of escape? If you're like most New Yorkers, your... first instinct is to run. Run like the wind. So, that's just what New York editor Annie Greenberg did as part of the New York City Zombie Run. With the undead at her heels for over three miles, she dodged the groaning, surprisingly fast creatures while wading through pools of blood. The best part? We captured it all on video. Watch as our editor joins her fellow New Yorkers in the race for her life. But, did she survive? Edited by Christopher Michael Beer. Shot by Jack Pearce and Ben Poster.

FUET Magazine Issue 1Created, or rather, cooked out of two publishing professionals' insatiable love for food and its culture, FUET Magazine is now set to deliver its first issue. What was originally supposed to be a... drool-inducing fan-made magazine has evolved into something more robust, as founders Eduardo García (of Fucking Young!) and María Arranz (of Le Cool Madrid) are poised to explore life through the lens of cooking. Accordingly, the inaugural issue will focus on the ideas of rituals within food, a special interview with Catalan artist Antoni Miralda, and even the magic secret behind love potions. The first issue is available to purchase now on I Love Paper for approximately $14 USD.

Geniuses Create Magical New Gadget For Painting With Light

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 22:08
Geniuses Create Magical NewNot since Nickelodeon's Gak have we been so excited for an invention. GIF-ted duo Duncan Frazier and Steve McGuigan of Bitbanger Labs have designed a nifty gadget to make all your long exposure light... painting dreams come true. They call it Pixelstick. You may recognize the stunning technique of light painting from pioneers like Pablo Picasso and contemporary enthusiasts like Darren Pearson, the skeleton skateboarder. Yet while it took Pearson an entire year to create his just over one-minute masterpiece, the Pixelstick will make light painting a far less time consuming endeavor. The Pixelstick is made of 198 full color RGB LEDs, housed in a lightweight aluminum casing. A small mounted box they call the "brain" reads images from an SD card and displays them, one line at a time. Each LED...

James Toback: Robert DowneyRobert Downey Jr. and director James Toback made three films together between 1987 and 1999, but don't necessarily expect them to collaborate in the future. In an interview with HuffPost Live host... Ricky Camilleri, Toback slammed Downey by saying "he's not the same person anymore." "He's clearly under some influence which has flattened him out," Toback said. "He's not, apparently, doing any drugs. He's not going up and down. He's on an even keel, and he's become the most successful robotic cartoon character in movie history. He's a one-man brand franchise. I think it requires him to be a person who doesn't resemble the person he used to be. That was a conscious decision. I was one of the three people who toasted him at his wedding, and I could feel the beginning of it there. I got a sense...

Kanye West's Vancouver Show Canceled Again? (UPDATED)

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 22:02
Kanye West's Vancouver ShowKanye West's Yeezus tour is not going as planned. The Grammy-winning rapper reportedly canceled his Thursday night show in Vancouver without notice as to when the concert will be rescheduled. This... isn't the first time Kanye has postponed or canceled a date on his tour, or even this specific show. The Vancouver concert was originally scheduled to take place on Oct. 20 and was pushed back to Oct. 31. After kicking off the tour in Seattle on Oct. 19, Kanye also pulled out of his booked show in Anaheim, Calif. this week.

12 Affordable Toppers To Add ATake a look around you. We suspect you've already noticed a certain "trend" that starts right around this time each year -- and it's not so pretty. Even though stores are stocked with coats, coats,... and more coats, when the cool temps set in, all you might see is a shroud of drab, dull blah on your morning commute. Talk about uninspiring! So, we've found 12 eye-catching toppers with tons of texture, color, and character -- and they don't break the bank. While a classic, black wool-blend should be in every woman's sartorial arsenal, adding a statement piece to your outerwear set can instantly liven up winter's dreary palette.

Thorny Nails, If You Like ANail art doesn't tend to take our breath away, no matter how crazy/cute/inventive it is. But, when we saw this photo on Violet Grey of nails with thorns glued on them, the beauty department... collectively gasped. The thorns look like they're growing right out of the nails, like talons. Happy Halloween, indeed. Is it pretty, in the standard sense of the word? Oh, no. Definitely not. It is, however, totally creepy, a little bit terrifying, and eerie in an other-worldly sense -- as though maybe this is a nail-art trend among glamorously violent aliens. A word of caution, if you're going to follow the detailed how-to that accompanies the photo: For the sake of your loved ones, maybe don't try to touch anyone until you're safely de-thorned. We want this manicure to look dangerous, not actually...

Lorenz thrives on blending simple shapes and objects with strategically chosen colors to create modern pieces with an old-world feel. Her latest collection "Myth Of The Flat World" is described as Hollywood regency minimalist.

'Who Says'

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 21:48
Since I was a little girl I don't recall ever being the "fashionable" one that all the other little girls would go home trying to emulate. I was the one with the short hair & sneakers running around... playing. Pigtails stopped by age 5 and there were no frilly bows just barrettes. By 7th grade I was becoming more aware of my outer presence probably because at the ripe age of 11 boys weren't interested in who I was but rather what I looked like. Not being the "fashionable" one or the "rich" one I had to be creative. Back in the day Mom and Dad were not dishing out $80 for Guess overalls for school shopping no matter how much I cried and cried (but I did get them for my birthday in March). So began my drive to be able to look great! I babysat after school to make money for clothes and made it...

Travi$ Scott - S**t On You |Thought he's already shared a stage with influential artists like Pusha T and Kanye West, Travi$ Scott continues to push his own boundaries and create a unique aesthetic. For proof, look no further... than the music video for "Sh*t On You," the latest track from his Owl Pharaoh mixtape to get the visual treatment. Here we find the "Upper Echelon" artist channelling a kind of trippy, acid-fueled vibe circa the early 1990's, juxtaposing it against lyrics of sticking it to haters. Enjoy the video above, and look for Scott to appear with A$AP Ferg in the visuals for "Uptown" in the near future.

Moby-Dick the Opera Sails Onto Your TV Screen

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 21:38
Moby-Dick the Opera Sails OntoLast year, San Francisco Opera's company premiere of Moby-Dick (music by Jake Heggie; libretto by Gene Scheer) was a real event, and now we can see it (or see it again) by way of the alphabet soup of... PBS, DVD and Blu-ray. The company's great production will be telecast on Great Performances on November 1, and the DVD and Blu-ray versions are newly available. Heggie and conductor Patrick Summers will sign copies of Moby-Dick in San Francisco's War Memorial Opera House lobby on November 3, after the matinee performance of The Flying Dutchman. There were multiple reasons for excitement even before the curtain rose in San Francisco last fall, because the composer lives in San Francisco and because the work (commissioned by SFO and Dallas Opera) is based on one of our greatest novels.

East (nearly two-fifths come from Central & Eastern Europe). The eastern lurch has long been sponsored by Erste Bank, who do business in the region, and was strengthened by the Fair's 2012 acquisition from Reed Exhibitions by two Russians, Sergey Skatershikov and Dmitry Axenov. Skatershikov, an art investment specialist, was perceived as the dominant partner, but shipped on full control to Axenov, a property tycoon, before you could say wienerschnitzel. Suspicions that the Fair may not be the art world's most bracing investment were compounded by some of this year's innovations, which included...

Former 'Full House' Star, Blake McIver, Now A Go-Go Dancer

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 21:30
Former 'Full House' Star,Back in the early 1990s, Blake McIver was a child actor with family-friendly roles in "Full House," "The Little Rascals" and "Home Improvement." Today, McIver is a go-go dancer in Los Angeles. "I'm... not embarrassed," McIver told RumorFix of his go-go dancing, which he has done for the past year. He said he had been working as a vocal coach, but turned to dancing when business slowed and "in the process, I found it so liberating and empowering." McIver posts lots of photos of his new go-go life to his Instagram page (in various states of undress). The 28-year-old came out as gay three years ago. As a teenager, he struggled with bullying while attending a Christian high school. That experience affected how he felt about himself. "I had so much shame about my body," he told RumorFix.

On The Road With Punk's Latest Crush

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 21:30
On The Road With Punk's LatestThe music industry is so saturated that it's easy to forget the song you heard last night or the artist you saw in concert over the summer. Well, not if the artist is Isabel "Izzy" Almeida of Hunters... and if that song is "Seizure." In fact, with her cotton-candy pink hair, crazy-cool style, punk-rock 'tude, Almeida is pretty darn unforgettable. So, when we heard she was on tour with guitarist (and beau) Derek Watson, bassist Thomas Martin, and drummer Gregg Giuffre, we gleefully invited ourselves along. A quick chat between sets as the 28-year-old Brooklyn-based artist toured the East Coast with her mates revealed just how much noise she could make (literally and figuratively) and how she jams in style (hint: a pair of way-cool Carrera by Jimmy Choo sunnies). Read ahead, and rock on.

Pixie News: Find Out Who Made the Cut this Week

'Kudzilla' Could Rampage SouthChris Lindland is a man with a bizarre dream: Building a 40-foot tall Godzilla sculpture somewhere in the south. But not just any Godzilla sculpture.

Lindland calls his project "Kudzilla" and is attempting to raise $50,000 through Kickstarter. If he gets the money by Nov. 29, he will start building a giant skeleton that can be put in a field with kudzu, which will then do its magic. It shouldn't be hard. Walter Reeves, a gardener helping with the project says kudzu can grow up to a foot a day. "You can watch it grow," he said in the Kickstarter video. Lindland has dreamt about making a Kudzilla...

In Defense Of 'Slutty' Halloween Costumes

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 21:22
In Defense Of 'Slutty'Though sexy Halloween costumes might not be everyone's cup of tea, it's certainly a woman's prerogative to wear one if she'd like to. So why are some women shamed for doing so? HuffPost Live host... Caitlyn Becker tackled this question in an Oct. 30 segment. The participants agreed that women should not be shamed for their costume choices -- and raised the point that "slutty" Halloween costumes are usually only a problem when men are around. "I really think it's the issue of women tearing other women down, and participating in that," blogger LaTisha Conto said. "Because I honestly think -- if you get a room of women together -- they don't care if you're dressing sexy, or slutty, or cute, or in an oversized costume. When men come in, that's when women start to degrade each other." Participants...

I'll supply the north London church." I sent a message to Andy, who it turns out is the atheist minister responsible for two neighboring congregations in Islington and Newington Green.

Wood Wood x Calming Park "Cashmere" Candle

Hypebeast - 31 Oct 2013 21:16
Wood Wood x Calming ParkWhile Wood Wood may be revered for its rich and casual looks in apparel and footwear, the brand has teamed up with candle brand Calming Park to create a scented candle with special packaging. While... this isn't the typical piece to come from Wood Wood, it certainly does well to extend the warm, cozy, and casual tones of the brand. Calming Park was originally founded by Swiss DJ Olivier Rohrbach to "assist in the search for personal balance and calm." It certainly succeeds when the candle is lit, releasing soothing patchouli and cedarwood fragrances into the air, combining these hints within the organic palm wax mixture. Delivered with a burning life of over 40 hours, look for the Wood Wood x Calming Park "Cashmere" candle on the Danish brand's web shop.

The good news is they are... probably not pimples. The bad news is they're most likely a totally common skin condition called keratosis pilaris. When it comes to KP, there's a surprising amount that dermatologists do and do not know about it. That's because, like acne, there can be a number of underlying causes. Unlike acne, however, there isn't a ton of research in it. The most common (and obvious) cause of KP: genetics. "More women than men have it, three-quarters of adolescents will experience it, and sometimes it's connected to eczema and dermatitis. But other than that, usually all we know is that someone's mother had it...

Sriracha Factory Can Stay Open, Judge Rules

New York Mag - 31 Oct 2013 21:10
Sriracha Factory Can StayOverruled! That's right, the hot-sauce factory stays in the picture, even though neighbors have been complaining about a persistent burning sensation in the air around Huy Fong's 650,000-square-foot... factory. "If it doesn't smell, we can't sell," Sriracha-sauce creator David Tran apparently said before the ruling. That's right: The guy who built a hot-sauce empire from scratch got up in front of a judge in Los Angeles County Superior Court, channeled his best Johnnie Cochran, and said, "If it doesn't smell, we can't sell," before adding, "If the city shuts us down, the price of Sriracha will jump a lot." Now, everybody can get back to making sexy Sriracha costumes. [Buzzfeed, Earlier, Earlier]

A Lesbian Movie WithoutBlue Is the Warmest Color, this year's Palme d'Or winner at Cannes, has now faced so many controversies that you could make a drinking game out of them. The stars, Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos,... criticize their director, Abdel Kechiche, in the press? Shot. Kechiche pens an open letter back? Take another. The film gets slapped with an NC-17 rating and banned in Idaho? That's a full drink. A New York theater responds to the ban by allowing those under the MPAA-set age restriction into the movie, citing the film's cultural relevance? Finish it. You're spent. However, lost in the clustercuss of online backlash is an honest conversation about the film's representation of women. After the film won the top prize at Cannes and special recognition from jury president Steven Spielberg, Julie...

10 Years Of Viral Pop Cultural Costumes

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 21:00
10 Years Of Viral Pop CulturalRemember last year? We hardly do. So much has happened since then, from hurricanes to sharknados to twerkquakes, that we can't recall if 2012 even existed. (Spoiler: It did not.) So, whatever... celebrity-inspired, YouTube-featured costume was deemed "hot" that year has been lost to the annals of time, dumped at the very bottom of a Ricky's discounted Halloween bin. Taking a look at pop culture costumes from last year, two years ago, and even ten years back is a strange, bizarre trip through time. Chilean miners? Ali G? Psy? We're betting that most of these are not going to be reprised any time soon -- which makes them all the more fun to reflect upon.

Look out, all you adorable kids in Halloween costumes. Sure, you look pretty rad dressed up as tiny Grace Coddington or mini Lady Gaga, but you cannot compete with Teddy Bear, the talking porcupine,... in the eternal struggle for cuteness. Before you think we're cold or cruel ("Something cuter than a wee Grace Coddington? Impossible!"), just watch this video of an exuberant Teddy Bear chowing down on a baby pumpkin. We're not even going to overthink this example of pure, unbridled appreciation for one of the season's greatest treats. Instead, we're just going to sit back, watch Teddy Bear enjoy his snack -- he's feeling so many feelings right now! -- and try to remember the last time we were this effusive about something.

Obama Is Hanging Out With Chewie, Because Duh

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 21:00
Obama Is Hanging Out WithPhoto: Via Twitter. If this picture is any indication of the future of our government, it's looks like Chewbacca and a Stormtrooper will be joining the White House staff. Though their official roles... have yet to be announced, we imagine they've been hired as ambassadors in Obama's quest to establish intergalactic relations. When asked about a potential role in the administration, Chewbacca replied enthusiastically, "ARHHHHH!" The FLOTUS is clearly unimpressed with this change in staff, and we have to say that we, too, are a little skeptical. When we saw the Presdient's tweet with this picture a few hours ago, we started to give it more thought. If Obama is joining forces with Chewbacca, does this signify his participation in the Rebel Alliance? Even though Obama is technically part of the...

Bidding On That $50 BanksyNEW YORK -- NEW YORK (AP) -- Bidding on a painting that British graffiti artist Banksy bought for $50 and altered has climbed to more than $310,000. Banksy added a Nazi soldier into the pastoral scene... after he purchased the painting at a Manhattan thrift shop. He donated it back to the 23rd Street Housing Works store on Tuesday. The store put it up for auction the same day. The auction ends Thursday at 8 p.m. Proceeds will benefit Housing Works' homelessness and AIDS initiatives. As he does with all his works, the elusive artist posted the image on his website. He titled it, "The banality of the banality of evil." On Sunday, Banksy posted an essay on his website calling the design of 1 World Trade Center, the skyscraper being built at ground zero, a "disaster."

Mick Jagger Denies Hitting On Katy Perry When She Was 18

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 20:57
Mick Jagger Denies Hitting OnNEW YORK -- NEW YORK (AP) -- In her teenage dream? Mick Jagger says he never hit on Katy Perry when she was 18. During an interview with an Australian radio show this week, the pop star said she sang... backing vocals for Jagger's 2004 song "Old Habits Die Hard." Perry said she had dinner with the veteran rocker and that "he hit on me when I was 18." In a statement Thursday, a representative for Jagger says he "categorically denies that he has ever made a pass at Katy Perry." The rep adds: "Perhaps she is confusing him with someone else." Perry was one of the singers to make a guest appearance on the Rolling Stones' tour this year. The 29-year-old singer also said in the interview that the 70-year-old Jagger has been "very kind" to her.

This habit is especially important during the cold-weather... months, when my complexion can turn ashy within minutes of walking outside. Over the past year, there's been a lot of hype about face oils. While dabbling here and there with these oily moisturizers, I've consistently stuck with my usual lotions. But when Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Face Oil landed on my desk, I was certainly intrigued. Like most African-American women, I grew up in a household where my mother kept cocoa butter lotion stocked in our toiletries closet. She was adamant about me slathering on the buttery concoction before I even thought about slipping into my school...

Buffalo Trace Is Short 100,000 Bourbon Barrels

New York Mag - 31 Oct 2013 20:25
Buffalo Trace Is Short 100,000It can't be staved off any longer. It seems as if things are getting pretty intense around the Frankfort, Kentucky–based Buffalo Trace Distillery. First it was the bad news that someone had pilfered... 65 cases of ultra-rare Pappy Van Winkle twenty-year-old bourbon whiskey (along with a few bottles of thirteen-year-old rye), and now there's word that demand for Buffalo Trace has outweighed supply by, oh, say, 100,000 barrels. We were warned about this earlier, and apparently, the distillery has now run out of space to barrel-age and store its liquor. “We have about one million barrels in storage and if I could buy or magic [sic] about another 100,000 barrels to go on the roof, I'd readily do that," says Sazerac CEO Mark Brown, telling the Spirits Business that demand is growing at a rapid...

Remember when we feared losing Big Gulps,... forever? Now, the campaign for a healthier New York includes legislation to change the legal age for purchasing tobacco from 18 to 21. We spoke with Zoe Tobin, press secretary for the New York City Council and according to her, "Most people who are not smokers by 21 years of age do not start smoking later in their lives. In New York City, 80% of adults who become daily smokers start smoking before reaching the age of 21." And, though tobacco use among young people has fallen from 17.6% to 8.5% in recent years, youth smoking rates have remained stuck at 8.5% since 2011. While there hasn't been...

Adam Levine Is The Calvin Klein Of Kmart, Apparently

Wear Daily, Bernt Ullmann, president and chief executive officer of Star Branding and president of Kmart parent Sears Holdings Corp.'s Shop Your Way Brands, said that Levine's popular offerings have managed to usher in a brand new type of customer for the mass retailer: "The white space is for that younger, upwardly mobile [male] Kmart customer that wants a cleaned-up lifestyle product that still has a contemporary feel to it. That's not really covered on the floor today. To that extent, I think Adam has the ability to be Kmart's Calvin Klein business." Likening Levine to Calvin Klein, a mass...

The troubled teen stole Guy Fieri's... $200,000 yellow Lamborghini from a dealership in March 2011 to impress a girl, hid the car in a storage locker, tried to kill the girl and her boyfriend in a drive-by shooting, and then convinced his friend to try to bust him out of jail. With sledgehammers. Needless to say, Wade didn't get the girl or the car and reportedly had to be "tethered" to a chair that was bolted to the floor during the trial, but at least he did get a rap song written in his honor.

Kids Dressed Up As Chanel BagsStill haven't figured out a Halloween costume? Stop your search, because we've found the cutest one yet: the Chanel bag costume. Yep, parents are outfitting their little girls as famous quilted Chanel... 2.55 purses for Halloween, complete with the chain-link straps, quilted "leather" and those iconic double C's. Sure beats dressing up as a pumpkin for the zillionth year in a row, right? New York mom Valerie Vazquez told the New York Post that her 5-year-old daughter, Sophia, saw the design on Pinterest and loved it, so they had one custom-made. "Since Sophia likes to be like Mommy, the thought of being a bag that Mommy carries sealed the deal," she said. And if Mommy doesn't actually own her own Chanel bag, what better way to vicariously live out the dream than by sticking her little girl in...

Tricked You! It's Not AThis striking image is both a trick and a treat: Take a closer look -- though it may seem like the work of Photoshop, or you know, a twentieth-century pop artist, this is one Reddit user's actual... face. (This is the part where you do a double take.) Still can't believe your eyes? Check out her eyes, teeth, and hair -- when you "see" it, it's truly a sight to behold. Granted, the line between beauty and art has been blurred before, but never to the point where we questioned if we were looking at a real human face or just an artist's rendering of one. She's nailed the crispness and layers of color, the dark accents -- can you blame us for wishing she'd show up on our doorstep to re-create this for us before we hit the town tonight? If you're itching to see more from this talented Redditor (we...

Peep Our Creative Director'sPhotographed by Bailey R. Roberts, Courtesy of Sous Style. Our company-wide meetings are themed. This month's theme was R29 Oktoberfest. There was beer and pretzels and a grunge polka band and... schnitzel. (Boy, was there ever schnitzel!) And, behind all of the fun, you can usually find our fabulous creative director, Piera Gelardi. (If she's not planning then she's Instagramming.) Not only does she know how to inject a little party into work, but she is a master of the Halloween costume. One year, Piera came to work dressed as Jambi from Pee Wee's Playhouse. This year was no different: Piera transformed from the creative director we know and love into the star of P&P's Polka Party Band (the second P, of course, stands for Philippe, who may or may not be one of R29's CEOs). Luckily, Sous...

How I Met Your Father IsPhoto: Courtesy of CBS. TV viewers are finally finding out how Ted Mosby met his kids' mother in this season's How I Met Your Mother. It's a mystery that has spanned a whopping nine seasons, and the... creators just don't want to give it up. Audiences will likely be introduced to a whole new crew come HIMYM's series finale next year that will lead into a spinoff show aptly titled How I Met Your Father. It's been confirmed that producers are in early talks of the follow-up series. The pitches have included an entirely new cast that flips the script of its inspiration. Rather than follow a male protagonist, HIMYF would follow a woman's journey to find her husband. It would take place in the original town, and the cast would frequent the same haunts. There's no guarantee, however. The idea is...

Eminem featuring Kendrick Lamar - Love Game

Hypebeast - 31 Oct 2013 19:36
Eminem featuring KendrickAhead of next week's drop comes perhaps the mostly highly anticipated cut from Eminem's forthcoming The Marshall Mathers LP 2: the Kendrick Lamar-assisted cut "Love Game." In sticking with the Beastie... Boys-inspired vibe - whether intentional or not - that marks the majority of the album, the track once again adopts an old-school rap/rock beat from Rick Rubin and company as Em' and K.Dot trade verses, their sharp tongues and barbs in hilarious contrast to the music itself. Enjoy below and look for The Marshall Mathers LP 2 to drop November 5.

Earlier this week, Mission Chinese Food made what was basically the biggest announcement in the history of New York City food delivery: Danny... Bowien's menu could now be dispatched to any Manhattan location below 59th Street. (The actual delivery is handled by a start-up called Caviar, which can also deliver food from spots like Katz's and Maharlika; Han Dynasty is on the way.) That is very good news for New York's kung-pao-pastrami fans — but that delivery zone is huge. Could Mission and Caviar really maintain quality control? Grub wanted to know, so we recruited a half dozen folks around town to order whatever they wanted and report back on their experiences. Here's what we discovered.

Chef Responds to Bourdain OverBest seal ever. After Anthony Bourdain called out chefs on Twitter earlier this week for supporting the Protect Seals campaign, which seeks a moratorium on seal slaughter with a boycott against... Canadian seafood, Virginia-based chef Cathal Armstrong spoke out against "irresponsible people out there that are not following the regulations" within the industry. Armstrong tells CBC News that it's "a difficult choice" to support a boycott of Canadian seafood, which will have clear effects on the families who depend on the industry, but says that Bourdain's rant won't put an end to the campaign. Armstrong insists that the need to put pressure on the commercial seal industry outweighs any potential ramifications: "To think of a baby seal being clubbed to death simply for its pelt and then anything...

The spot (watch above)... features a beautiful bride having a playful moment with her daughter after bridesmaids help her adjust her jewelry. At the ceremony, we see the hunky groom struck with love for both his new wife and stepdaughter. The little girl feels excluded during the actual marriage rites, however, so stepdad invites her to join them. She later asks if she can call him "Daddy." AdWeek reports that India has been "mesmerized" by the ad. The trade outlet called the commercial "revolutionary" and "crazy bold."

Waitress Fired for Degrading Vegan Diner

After Laura Stevens ordered meat-and-dairy-free chili at Glasgow’s Squid & Whale, she received a receipt printed with the words vegan pussy. Stevens brushed it... off, but when she noticed that the server complained about her on the restaurant's Facebook page — "Thanks to everyone that took part in chili cook-off (except the woman who wouldn't try our chili because it had lamb in it" — she complained. The restaurant fired the carnivorous waitress, of course, calling her a "rogue member of staff." Can you imagine what the server has to say about raw-food enthusiasts and gluten-free dieters?

Health in the Ancient Greek World

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 18:45
Health in the Ancient GreekDid our ancestors worry about their diet? Did they exercise? How would an athlete treat his injuries 2,500 years ago? Why did they use opium? When did they visit spas? How did they cope with issues of... public health and hygiene? How do you tempt the public today and how do you make an archaeological exhibition relevant to everyone? In a small country like Greece, such a challenge for an archaeological museum becomes even more remarkable. So, gearing up for Hygieia: Health, Illness and Treatment from Homer to Galen, our upcoming 2014 exhibition opening next fall at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Greece, is a most interesting bet: 300 artifacts with the participation of 42 international museums, including the Louvre, the British Museum, the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, and the...

She gained 50 lbs. and swelled due to preeclampsia, a medical condition that causes high blood pressure and protein levels in expecting women.

Cobie Smulders DemonstratesPhoto: Rob Latour/REX USA. We all know that braids are awesome, but actress Cobie Smulders just schooled us on why we love them so dearly. For a red-carpet event in L.A. last night, Smulders wore a... slightly prim sheath dress and classic red lipstick -- but by coupling them with a casual, slightly messy, braided updo, the whole look became whimsical and hip in the best possible way. The key to this crazy-pretty look? The braid was created low on Smulders' forehead and thoroughly mussed, to create a loose, devil-may-care texture. And, you know, if her sassy stare is any indication, we'd bet that Smulders knows how envy-inducing her look is. That's okay -- we're totally content to admit the actress' total braid superiority (as long as we can steal her look for ourselves, that is). Like this...

The Ultimate Halloween Playlist

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 18:35
The Ultimate HalloweenPhotos: via Amazon. Halloween is arguably one of the best holidays of the year. Not only do you get to wear whatever you want (seriously, whatever you want) and eat unlimited candy, you also get to... party all night without the unfulfilled expectations of New Year's or the forced family obligations of every other holiday. There's only one snag: the playlist. While all other holidays have a long list of tried-and-true songs, Halloween just has "Thriller." The rest are fit only for a children's carnival. (We CANNOT hear "Monster Mash" one more time.) So, we tapped some of NYC's hottest DJs -- who play at clubs like Le Baron, Le Bain, Output, TBA, (Le) Poisson Rouge, and more -- for their expert suggestions for a seriously spooky playlist. Contributors include Travmatic, whose famous Kaviar...

Trust us, we know there's nothing more fear-inducing than being out and about and seeing that little bar of red.

So, if you're looking for simple ways to extending that battery life, the International Business Times has rounded up five must-know tips, from adjusting brightness to auto-downloading, all in the name of easing that phone-is-about-to-die anxiety.

We all know social interactions...

An article recently published on The Atlantic analyzes why relationships are so central to a flourishing life. Citing Matthew Lieberman's new book Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect, out this month, the post discusses the importance of social interactions and how our basic need to belong to a community and create relationships motivates a seriously remarkable range of our feelings, actions,...

Should You Forgo A HalloweenWhether it's an excuse to dress up like something you're not (naughty nurse, anyone?) or that costume parties are just your jam, adults sport Halloween getups almost as much as kids -- which,... according to Max Berlinger at Esquire, is an extremely bad idea if you're a dude. Berlinger presents his case with one simple question: "When was the last time you saw a grown man look respectable in a costume?" Okay, we have to agree with him here (we're looking at you, Iron Man), but isn't that the fun part about Halloween? No offense, but women don't exactly look, um, "respectable" dressed up like a witch that rolled out of a strip club either, so we say both genders are pretty equal when it comes to looking a little bit silly -- and isn't that the point? So, should you forgo that costume if you're...

How a 21 Day Facebook Detox Makes You More Creative

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 18:15
How a 21 Day Facebook DetoxThey say it takes 21 days to create a habit. It was that many days ago when I made the choice to walk away from Facebook. I made one status update saying I was going off for three weeks so I could... completely focus on my ghostwriting projects and on my landscape photography. I promptly deleted the app from my iPhone and removed the link from "Favorites" on my internet browser. I was committed! On the first morning, instead of scrolling through news feeds and friends' profiles, I left the house with a cleaner than usual kitchen, a load of laundry done and an empty dishwasher that I normally would have let sit until that evening. I wrote two chapters of a client's book and went on an early fall photo shoot. At the end of the first day, I concluded that by time the three weeks were up, I'd be...

Hooray! The FAA Lifts Ban OnPhoto: Courtesy of Delta. Big news air travelers: The FAA says it's a-okay to listen to your daily dose of Rihanna (or whatever you so choose) for the duration of the entire flight. Yes, the entire... flight, as in gate to gate! Consider one of the biggest #firstworldfrustrations solved, y'all. Rejoice, throw your iPods and iPads in the air, and book a flight, because you're not barred from using them anymore. Obviously this news comes with a catch. "Electronic items, books, and magazines, must be held or put in the seat back pocket during the actual takeoff and landing roll," the FAA said in an official statement. Oh, and you still can't listen to the radio, Skype, or make a phone call because a.) that's rude and b.) the signals screw with the airplane's communication systems, and ain't...

Rite of Spring (Le sacre du Printemp) the ballet score by Igor Stravinsky and choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky that caused a riot in its Paris premiere. This year performances by orchestras and dance companies have been in abundance to pay tribute to a work that changed two art forms forever. The Rite had its US debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra under maestro Leopold Stokowski at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia in 1914. The orchestra's current conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin used Stokowski's transcriptions for several live performances earlier this year. Those performances of Rite were,...

Banksy's 'Better Out Than In'After featuring the likes of the artist's prototypical stencils, street-set sculptures, truck bed installations and witty wordplay and tackling subjects like the American military, September 11 and... even McDonald's, Banksy's "Better Out Than In" comes to an end today with a simplistic finale: an inflatable tag overlooking the Long Island Expressway in Queens. Used sporadically throughout the month-long "street residency," the artist created one final gallery-like audio guide to accompany the work, stating in part: Well, this is the last day of the show, and I'd like to say we're going out on a high note. And I guess, in a way, we are. This is a sideways take on the ubiquitous spray painted bubble lettering that actually floats. It's an homage of sorts to the most prevalent form of graffiti...

Verve Opening Pop-up Coffee Shop in Williamsburg

New York Mag - 31 Oct 2013 17:50
Verve Opening Pop-up CoffeeOrder the One-and-One: a single macchiato and single espresso placed together on a shared saucer. Starting next week, the Santa Cruz–based company will operate a three-month-long pop-up shop at 33... Grand Street. Verve will share a space with Rudy's Barbershop and Portland-based clothing store Poler — a perfect fit, considering Verve takes style very seriously (the coffee company has an in-house designer who makes skate decks and graphic tees). Owners Ryan O'Donovan and Colby Barr have tricked out the space with a full coffee bar, full espresso machine, and Chemex pour-over coffeemakers. Hopefully, this means that a permanent New York café is imminent. [VV]

Chivalry Isn't Dead. It's Evolved.

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 17:49
Chivalry Isn't Dead. It'sSometimes I read things on the Internet that cheese my noodle so damn badly, I'll suffer from a mild rage blackout. Then, I'll come to my senses, take a deep breath and... write a thoughtful rebuttal.... I recently read an article about why chivalry is dead, all from a male perspective. You think it would blame men for chivalry's untimely passing, right? I mean, aren't they the ones responsible for opening doors and pulling out chairs and adhering to the cheesy tropes associated with courting women? But something interesting happened in this article. Instead of blasting men for their shortcomings and deteriorating seduction techniques, it focused on how FEMALES are actually responsible for the death of chivalry. Some choice excerpts: The real problem here is that women, for one reason or...

The Tragic Story Behind Victoria's Secret

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 17:37
The Tragic Story BehindA Stanford MBA named Roy Raymond wants to buy his wife some lingerie but he's too embarrassed to shop for it at a department store. He comes up with an idea for a high-end place that doesn't make you... feel like a pervert. He gets a $40,000 bank loan, borrows another $40,000 from his in-laws, opens a store, and calls it Victoria's Secret. Makes $500,000 his first year. He starts a catalog, opens three more stores, and after five years he sells the company to Leslie Wexner and the Limited for $4 million. Happy ending, right? Except two years later, the company's worth $500 million and Roy Raymond jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge. Poor guy just wanted to buy his wife a pair of thigh-highs. --Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) to Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) in The Social Network (2010) In...

Discovery Park of America ToUNION CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- The gleaming white building with curved exteriors and a spaceship-like tower emerges from the flat landscape of West Tennessee like something out of science fiction, but it's... not a villain's lair or superhero's headquarters. It's Discovery Park of America, a new museum, education center and tourist attraction opening Friday in Union City, Tenn., a town of 11,000 located a few hours' drive from Memphis, Nashville and St. Louis. With exhibits about natural and regional history, dinosaurs, Native Americans, energy, transportation, science, the military and space flight, the museum can be described as a mini-Smithsonian Institution. There's an earthquake simulator, a 120-foot (36-meter) glass-encased observation tower and a 50-foot (15-meter) metal replica of the...

But, while the trains are rife with inspiration, it's not actually our go-to place for crafting a beauty look.

But, now, Vanity Fair has an exclusive chat with her on the pain and gain of the whole harrowing situation. Apparently, Ross only found out about the affair a mere 20 hours before those infamous photos were published in Us Weekly. After that, she immediately retreated from the public eye as much as possible. In keeping with her goal to remain as cool, calm, and collected as a "Masai warrior," the British model kept mum on the subject, save for a pointed Instagram and a few...

Miley Cyrus Does Lil' Kim Right For Halloween

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 17:00
Leave it to Miley Cyrus to sensibly do Halloween. Not the name you expected to fall into that sentence? Hey, we, too, were a little shocked, but then we remembered the spot-on approach to her Nicki... Minaj costume last year. This All Hallows' Eve, Cyrus channeled Lil' Kim. Now, those are two things you'd expect in the same sentence. Anyway, yes, Miley donned Kim's infamous purple outfit from the 1999 VMAs, complete with the purple-seashell nipple pasty and wig. It's a practical -- dare we day prudent -- approach to the look. Like her Minaj costume, Cyrus tapped into the essence of Kim's personality instead of literally painting her face to become the personality (something Julianne Hough and a few bigwig designers are getting flack for today). The most shocking thing about Cyrus' Lil' Kim...

Eagulls Prove Pure Punk Is Alive & Raw

Eagulls Prove Pure Punk IsPhoto: Courtesy of Eagulls. Illustrated by Ammiel Mendoza. In our mile-a-minute music landscape, it's easy to lose sight of old-school values like working-class punk and no-nonsense DIY. Luckily,... Leeds-based act Eagulls is all too happy to remind us. With early singles like "Nerve Endings" and raucous covers of The Mekons and Killing Joke, the band thrashes through its songs with the fury and dynamism of early Dischord Records and Steve Albini productions. (Those hoping for an interview with some milquetoast Californians will be sorely disappointed.) To a world accustomed to faux-'80s sheen and pre-fab reverb, Eagulls offer an aggressive and -- some would argue -- much-needed refresher in true-grit rock 'n' roll.

That's precisely what it did for filmmaker Ava DuVernay. DuVernay, who is... the first African-American woman to win the Best Director Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, has teamed up with Fashion Fair cosmetics and created a stunning short film based around one of the company's lip colors called "Say Yes." "The name of that lip color sparked the idea -- the ways we say no and the ways we should say yes to life, to opportunities, to the unexpected. That was the impetus for it," DuVernay told Afrobella.com. And beyond DuVernay's stunning directorial skills, you also get to feast your eyes on the film's beautiful leading actors -- Lance Gross and Kali Hawk. The duo...

Adult magazine's founding... editor, Sarah Nicole Prickett, noticed a gap in the market and acted on it. In an October 2013 interview with The Cut, she said that she wanted to created a magazine that appealed to everyone, yet "feels like it was made by a woman." But that doesn't mean that Adult mag is "porn for women." In fact, Prickett is reluctant to conform to any gender stereotypes when it comes to pornography: I don't believe in "porn for women." The porn that I watch certainly does not fall into that category. It's not that I think porn for women is going to be, like, softer or gentler than it is for men. What's actually...

American Horror Story Recap: Voodoo Unchained

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 16:55
American Horror Story Recap:Photo: Courtesy of Michele K. Short/FX. Guys, this one's a toughie. Last night's episode of American Horror Story: Coven got in deep with racial animus, zombies, and doll collections. There is surely... a thesis to be written on this. We open in New Orleans in 1961. The South is in the thick of desegregation and the Civil Rights Movement. One of the hairdressers at Marie Laveau's salon is optimistic about her son attending an integrated school: "I have faith in the future," she says. Her son, however, is the sacrificial lamb in this allegory. He's chased down by a pack of middle-aged white men and strung up in a field. It's a fairly horrific scene, and it's impossible not to be reminded of the very real lynching of Emmett Till. Marie seeks revenge. She enters her voodoo chamber, slits open a...

Princess Leonor, Spain'sHappy birthday, Princess Leonor! The Spanish royal turns 8 years old today, bringing her that much closer to becoming her country's monarch. As she gets older, the youngster has been gearing up for... her future role as queen, studying languages like Mandarin and English, taking up ballet and preparing for her First Communion -- she's heir to the Catholic throne, after all. But Leonor has also been nailing down her royal style, and we have to say that she's already showing major fashion promise. So we're going to go ahead and call it now: This princess will be gracing best-dressed lists before you know it. Here's why: She's already mastered the shorts-with-tights look. She can jazz up a preppy stripe. It's only a matter of time before she's pulling off socks-with-heels. Oh, and she has those...

Layer on the Style

Layer on the StyleSyracuse weather makes getting dressed in the morning a challenge. A deceiving sun may shine in the sky, but the frigid winds whipping through campus mask its warmth. Nonetheless, Mother Nature... surprises students every few weeks with a gorgeous day sans wind and ominous clouds. After experiencing these bipolar weather conditions, students learn to master the art of layering.

Tween "Am I Pretty?" Videos Back In The News

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 16:30
We can all agree that our pre-teen years were some of our most awkward and difficult. But, the integration of social media and the increased access to the Internet has definitely changed the way kids... grow up these days. So, while we may have penned our insecurities in the likes of a janky-lock diary, tweens now go online to air their emotions. As part of an emerging trend, young girls are using YouTube, posting videos asking if they are pretty or ugly. And, while our diaries couldn't ever respond to us, you better believe the anonymous avatars of the web answer these girls. As an editor at Slate points out, a quick search of "Am I pretty or ugly" on YouTube yields over 500,000 results. The videos feature girls seeking validation, and their pleas of "just be honest" and "I just want to...

Laurence Mathieu-Leger, NewsSometimes when girls wear hats, it's to disguise a bad hair day, over-waxed brows or a huge pimple. But this was far from the case with Laurence Mathieu-Leger. The brunette beauty not only had... picture-perfect curly hair, but she also had a flawless complexion. "I wear no makeup except for Marcelle mascara," the news producer told us. "And I never really touch my face, and I think that's why I have good skin." Though we know Mathieu-Leger's hands-off policy is partly responsible for her great skin, we still pressed her for more details on her beauty routine. She added, "To get my mascara off, I'll just use Johnson's Shea Butter Baby Lotion. I use it more for my body, but it's good for baby skin, so it's good for my face [too]." Well that explains it.

Kenneth Cole's 10 Keys to Success

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 16:10
Is it true that baby boomers are getting kicked out of the market by younger, spryer, energetic twenty-somethings who can work 38 hours a day on Red Bull? Not to Kenneth Cole; from his perspective... everyone has a chance to succeed regardless of their age. And, based on his 30-year track record, it looks like this talented designer knows a thing or two about success. With no money and little experience, Kenneth Cole took the fashion world by storm in 1983 when he did the unthinkable. Unable to pay for the standard hotel room used to showcase his new line of shoes, he set up a movie trailer on the street, changed his company to Kenneth Cole Productions, got film permits, and shot a film. In 48 hours he sold 40,000 pairs of shoes. Indeed, there is no business like shoe business. 30 years...

But it took a few months for Gaultier to deliver the kicker: Those kids were each outfitted in Gaultier's very first couture design for children. And it will cost you a whopping $1,200. The designer has just launched Junior Gaultier Couture, an offshoot of his children's clothing line Junior Gaultier, which he started back in 2009. Sure, his original kid-friendly offerings didn't come cheap -- a leather jacket will set you back $378 -- but his new foray into mini couture takes children's luxury to a new level.

A Brief History of Sexy Halloween Costumes

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 15:00
A Brief History of SexyIf I had a dollar for every time I've seen a social media comment along the lines of "why are Halloween costumes for women so sexy?!" I'd have enough money to march over to my neighborhood Halloween... superstore and buy a sexy French fries costume. For young women these days, the process of choosing a Halloween costume usually starts with the question of "to sexy, or not to sexy?" (or in my mind, "to freeze, or not to freeze on a chilly October night?"), and while I can understand the arguments that sexy Halloween, now not-so-feministly dubbed Slutoween, offers benefits of indulging fantasy and it being socially acceptable to bear one's body in a sexually forward manner, it's nevertheless curious that the holiday has evolved such an across-the-board libidinous costume culture. So, how did...

Look Better In Your InstagramAn Instagram filter is a powerful thing. It not only alters the tone of a photo, it sets the mood for the message you want to communicate. It literally helps you look at things through a rose-tinted... lens. But, at the same time, an Instagram filter manipulates the colors of your makeup into an entirely different look than intended -- a blessing and a curse. The right filter can turn a basic selfie into a de-facto headshot. Blemishes are softened, lips are blurred into a pout, and skin attains that highly coveted candlelit glow. Pick the wrong filter and you can end up looking like you partied all night in Vegas -- with dark under-eye circles, exaggerated fine lines, and misplaced shadows aging your face. And if you're photographing makeup on its own, some filters enhance the hues to look...

Miley Cyrus Dresses As Lil KimMiley Cyrus dressed as Lil Kim for a Halloween party Wednesday night (Oct. 30), complete with a lilac nipple pasty. Cyrus copied Kim's look from the 1999 Video Music Awards, when the New York City... rapper wore a one-sleeved mermaid-inspired jumpsuit with a nipple pasty over her left breast, and a purple wig. It was undoubtedly one of the most memorable moments in VMA history (Diana Ross even jiggled her boob), so it makes sense that the 20-year-old would choose the look. The "Wrecking Ball" singer posted photos of her costume to Instagram with the caption, "Happy Halloween." In one shot, she wrote, "Miley doing Lil Kim doing Miley," with her tongue sticking out. Shock value aside, Cyrus has professed to being a huge fan of Kim. In July, she told Billboard.com that the hip-hop star is on her...

Posing with the Monaco noble on the red carpet, Maya was decked out in her own impressive dress: a shiny pink number with voluminous tiers and floral embroidery on the bodice. Lest she be out-dressed by a pre-teen, Princess Charlene turned it out in a dramatic dark green taffeta gown from Ralph Lauren's Fall 2013 collection featuring a high halter neckline. Oh, and a totally gracious smile when posing with Maya for photos. She is Her Serene Highness, after all....

Old Bearded Men Pose InWhat would you wear to the funeral of a dearly beloved? It's a morbid but eventually necessary thought, planning the clothes you'd don on the day someone you love passes away. The taboo query is the... subject of photographer James Day's series, "Funeral Guests," a portrait project that captures the despondent ensembles individuals would choose in their moment of mourning. The series was inspired, oddly enough, by Day's fascination with older gentlemen's beards. "They always seem to convey a real sense of wisdom and experience," Day wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. "I wanted to create a series of images incorporating these but to have little twist, so I came up with the idea of them as funeral guests."

Who Was the Girl With the Pearl Earring?

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 14:38
Who Was the Girl With theOne historian suggests she was actually the artist who painted a fifth of the works attributed to Vermeer--his daughter. By Benjamin Binstock Johannes Vermeer's iconic Girl With a Pearl Earring has... arrived at the Frick Collection in New York, drawing unprecedented crowds. We might therefore ask: Who was she? Several authors, ranging from Marcel Proust's friend the journalist Jean-Louis Vaudoyer to New Yorker writer Lawrence Weschler, have suggested she might be the artist's eldest daughter, Maria. Many Vermeer scholars dismiss that notion as a Romantic anachronism, a projection onto an earlier period of a modern view of art as a reflection of the artist's circumstances. In the wake of this denial, Tracy Chevalier's novel Girl With a Pearl Earring provided an alternative, fictional answer:...

Then-And-Now Photos Of AnneAnne Frank touched the furthest corners of the world with her intimate and brave diary entries, which document the atrocities of the Holocaust with unrelenting optimism. Despite her tragic death at... only 15 years old, Anne's wisdom, courage and endless love continue to move strangers to this day. As Anne herself said, "Who would ever think that so much went on in the soul of a young girl?" © NIOD / Anne Frank House While we've long been inspired by Frank's words, we've never before poured over images of the young heroine's life. That is, until we came across this then-and-now photography series, combining black-and-white photographs from Anne's lifetime with a contemporary image of the city streets. The jarring juxtaposition transports viewers to the Nazi-occupied Netherlands where Anne...

'Free Birds' Review: AnimatedLOS ANGELES -- LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Every year about this time, millions of turkeys are fattened up so American households can chow them down. But in "Free Birds," two brave turkeys make it their... mission to travel back in time and get their breed off the Thanksgiving menu. In this amusing but occasionally distasteful animated feature from visual effects studio Reel FX, turkeys Reggie (Owen Wilson) and Jake (Woody Harrelson) strive for heroism and bank some notably kooky buddy comedy along the way. We're introduced to Reggie, a rather astute turkey living on a farm with his lackadaisical flock. With Thanksgiving on the way, he attempts to warn the other birds, with whom he desperately wants to fit in, that they'll soon be dinner if they don't wise up. As a result, his flock deems him the...

'The Bully Pulpit' FilmNEW YORK -- NEW YORK (AP) -- Steven Spielberg and Doris Kearns Goodwin are reteaming after their Oscar-winning collaboration on "Lincoln." DreamWorks Studios announced Wednesday that it has acquired... the film rights to Goodwin's upcoming "The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft and the Golden Age of Journalism." Spielberg, a principal partner of DreamWorks, last year released his acclaimed adaption of Goodwin's "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln." Spielberg said that Goodwin has "once again given us the best seats in the house where we can watch two dynamic American personalities in a battle for power and friendship."

Day of the Dead Crafts for Kids

Apartment Therapy - 31 Oct 2013 14:15
Why should Halloween have all the fun? The Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos, is primarily a Mexican holiday, but many people in the United States have begun to acknowledge it, if not celebrate... it outright. It's a celebration of those who we've lost, but it's not a sad holiday; in fact, traditional rituals include lots of music and color. Observing some kind of simple Day of the Dead tradition can add a more thoughtful component to the festivities at this time of year. Here are a few fun Día de los Muertos crafts that you can do with your kids to introduce this cultural holiday.

Would You Nap In Public? WhatPhoto: Courtesy Of Studio Banana Things. Whether in class or on the subway, nobody likes getting caught doing the nodding-off-head-bob dance. And, while it makes sense why you might feel embarrassed... if someone eyes you falling into a light slumber in the midst of, say, a wedding ceremony, napping in public (under the right circumstance) doesn't always need to cause humiliation. Enter the new Ostrich Pillow Light, the sleeker, smaller, less noticeable version of the Ostrich Pillow. Seeking to help you find more time to get some much-needed shut-eye, the pillow adjusts to the size of your head, mutes all sound around you, and is incredibly soft. Heading home for Thanksgiving and have a long journey ahead you? Well, you might want to consider one of these. Did we mention it also doubles as a...

Is Marios Schwab SecretlyFar be it from us to spread unfounded rumours, but we understand that Marios Schwab has been doing a spot of undercover designing. The British talent has been spending time in Paris, and it's thought... he has been ghost-designing for Maison Martin Margiela. The fashion house is shrouded in mystery at the best of times, and all parties involved remain tight-lipped on the subject. According to WWD, Margiela's spokesperson said that the house does not talk about individual designers and that its studio is a creative collective that combines in-house team and the odd new contributor. The fashion house has not named a creative director since Margiela's eponymous and highly elusive founder left in 2009. Although no one's owning up to it, we think a Marios-Margiela collaboration could be a happy...

Horror Movies You Can Stream For Halloween

"Carrie" Netflix, Amazon... Instant Video Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie earned Oscar nods -- rarities for horror performances -- for this Stephen King fright fest.

Lou Gave Me A Lot

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 13:37
"This Halloween is something to be sure, especially to be here without you" It's four in the morning and I'm up with a jet lag, just back from Berlin. I was standing there a few days ago, by the... remnants of the wall, when my phone started buzzing with texts about Lou Reed's passing. I'd actually been humming tunes from his album "Berlin" all over that town but when I got the news I took that coincidence in stride. Because there was no coincidence, I was always humming Lou's music, everywhere, all the time. We all were. But over the past few days, my own deep sadness over his passing has surprised me. Like so many kids who rode out the divorce wave of the 70's, I adopted a lot of rock and roll fathers along the way. They're all getting old now, but Lou stands out above them for some key...

10 Reasons Why The 1980s WereIt started out with a simple challenge: Find actual examples of good decor trends from the '80s. Three days of scouring the internet produced little more than a miniature obelisk (why were they so... popular in the 1980s?) and a glass table. That was it. The only upside of this relatively fruitless search? These fantastic photos, found by the fabulous blog Vintage Goodness, that show the true side of the 1980s. It was an ugly time...at least for decor. Looking at these photos, we strongly believe that it's impossible for any of these trends to make a full-on comeback. But then again, I had said the same about leggings and New Wave hairdos. What do you think?

'Survivor: Blood Vs. Water':Jeff Probst is clearly loving this "Blood vs. Water" twist on the latest "Survivor." Moments after Hayden declared his unconditional love for Kat -- who'd been sent to Redemption Island in the... previous episode -- Probst put that love to the test. After all, Hayden could switch places with Kat, putting her back into the game. But the couple talked it out and decided that Hayden had a better chance of winning the game than she did. And so, they didn't make the switch. And then Kat promptly lost the challenge, eliminating herself from the game completely. Entertainment Weekly's Dalton Ross thought the couple made the right decision. After all, it was Kat who got herself sent to Redemption Island by stirring up trouble.

'It's Always Sunny InThe gang needed $40 million to finish their independently made continuation of the "Lethal Weapon" franchise on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." But they had plenty of footage of "Lethal Weapon 6"... to show potential investors, and that footage was both terrible and offensive. Mac spent most of the early scenes in blackface. In a shower scene, though, he was oblivious to the fact that he was washing off the paint. Then -- for no reason -- he switched roles with Dennis. But to assure the offensiveness continued, Dee was still in blackface for her closing scene at a wedding. The AV Club's Dennis Perkins found the episode funny, but thought they did it better when they decided to make "Lethal Weapon 5." "Like most re-hashes, it's neither as fresh (nor as awe-inspiringly appalling) as the...

'Revolution' Kills Off One OfSebastian Monroe has been a monster since the Day 1 on "Revolution," but he's shown a more human side in flashback sequences. This season, he softened a bit as well, though that may be because he lost... his seat of power. That fall from grace came to its ultimate fate on the latest episode of "Revolution." Monroe was sentenced to death by lethal injection, and it was Rachel and her father who carried out the sentence. Monroe's final words were, "I'm sorry." Buddy TV's Bill King thought this was "easily the best episode of the season thus far." He also questioned if "Revolution" would really kill off one of its most popular characters. Rachel mixed the concoction that was injected into Monroe to kill him, and the episode closed with her digging up his grave, so it seems the one-time mad...

Foofa of "Yo Gabba Gabba!" was inspired by Ike's sudden puberty burst -- a result of... Canada adopting a website to manage its healthcare system to disastrous results -- to do a little growing up herself. She was tired of being wholesome, and so she went in a "strange" new direction. It all culminated in what was destined to be a shocking performance at the MTV VMAs, with Ike by her side as her new manager. But Kyle reached out to his little brother, trying to tell him that he didn't have to grow up so quickly. Just let it happen naturally -- it's not necessary to force it. The plea worked on little Ike, who came home and got his medication corrected. But "Yo Gabba Gabba!" will...

"It was just really hard to read all these stories and hear all these nasty things. I think people sometimes ... think I'm 'in hiding' now," she said.

The film, which features Seydoux and Exarchopoulos as young lovers, scooped the Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or earlier this year, and has earned a NC-17 rating due to a number of explicit sex scenes. Controversy around the film has been further ignited following claims from Seydoux that shooting the film was "horrible" and that she would never work with director Abdellatif Kechiche again.

Turns Out, Snapchat Is WorthSnapchat, the self-destructing app that lets you share videos and pictures for 10 seconds, just acquired a staggering price tag. The two-year-old, California-based start-up is valued at an eye-popping... $4 billion, even though its revenue stands at zilch. Launched in July 2011, Snapchat earned its hefty price tag this week after seeking $200 million in funding from Asian investors who are keen to optimize the app's rising popularity among the oh-so desirable under-30 demographic. And, the stats speak for themselves: The brand claims to have around 100 million users who share up to 350 million snaps daily. In the age of oversharing, Snapchat may seem like just another addition to an endless catalog of tell-all apps, but don't be fooled. Unlike Instagram or Vine, Snapchat's main feature makes...

Who Is Banksy?

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 06:01
Who Is Banksy?One afternoon in 2006, a Frenchman and a guy who looked like a plumber drove up to a warehouse at the end of a quiet commercial street east of downtown Los Angeles. The Frenchman was Thierry Guetta,... aka Mr. Brainwash, an eccentric filmmaker who frequently collaborates with the elusive British street artist known as Banksy. The other man -- the plumber type -- was Banksy himself. So starts the juiciest personal story in the repertoire of Joel Unangst, the owner of the warehouse he said Banksy and Guetta drove up to that day. The two men were scouting a site for "Barely Legal," Banksy's first American art show, which notoriously featured an illegal painted elephant, and would prove instrumental to the artist's rise. The deal went through. True to form, Banksy liked the building's for its...

Is That You Pamela Anderson?

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 01:00
Is That You Pamela Anderson?Pamela Anderson has made the (pixie) cut -- and, damn, it looks good. The Internet has been atwitter after the star was spotted minus her signature long locks (Us Weekly went so far as to say that... she's "unrecognizable" without her flowing blonde mane). We, for one, think Pam looks amazing with her short hair -- and we're thrilled to see another celeb jumping on the chic-pixie bandwagon. Anderson paired her Hepburn-esque (Or is it Michelle-Williams-esque?) cut with an equally demure outfit, adding to transformative effect of her dramatic chop. Yes, it's a bit surprising -- but Anderson has always seemed determined to keep us guessing -- remember her columns for Jane back in the day? We're just wondering if this new cut will usher in a new phase of Anderson's career -- here's hoping. What...

How Not to Build a Boat

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 00:53

While showing me around his goat farm, he referred in passing to his boat, and, intrigued, I asked him about it. He said he'd been building a 105' sloop for the past twenty years, and was still working at it. I said I wanted to have a look. Within an hour my son and I were trying to be of some use and trying not to get caught up in the lines. I expressed my admiration for what he had accomplished, and he suggested what he had learned in the process of building a boat for past twenty years -- "I know how...

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 00:49
Nathan Walsh at BernarducciNathan Walsh -- a realist painter who lives and works in York, England -- initiates his views of American cities with a single postcard-sized study which he then enlarges into a rigorous... blueprint-like underdrawing. As he layers and builds his paintings Walsh subtly alters and enhances the perspective of each scene: he feels that artifice is necessary to make his works convincing. Although he does use photographs as one of his source materials, Walsh does not define himself as a Photorealist. "You almost need to create the space from scratch, using the photographs only as a guide," he explains: "If you don't do that it won't be convincing as a painting." Transamerica, 180 x 123 cms., oil on linen, 2013 Visitors to his upcoming exhibition at Bernarducci Meisel Gallery will be able to use a...

The New... York State Supreme Court decision put an end to two lawsuits plaguing the Manhattan art haven, both of which claimed that the "suggested" $25 entrance fee was misleading to patrons and violated an 1893 law that requires the taxpayer-funded museum to open its doors to the public for five days and at least two nights per week. According to The New York Times, Judge Kornreich disagreed with the plaintiffs, ruling on the side of the art world's Goliath: "For those without means, or those who do not wish to express their gratitude financially, a de minimis contribution of a penny is accepted....

As if that wasn't enough to get you to lace up your running shoes, you need not spend endless hours in the gym either. In fact, Mammen analyzed over 26 years of research to conclude that even moderate levels of activity for just 20 to 30 minutes a day can do the trick. This information is music to the ears of mental-health experts who are seeking an alternative to treating depression beyond pricey meds. "Our health system is taxed. We need a prevention...

Proof of that is the latest story from photographer Brandon Stanton's Humans of... New York (HONY) project. Thanks to Stanton, Facebook, and the generosity of strangers, a little boy in Ethiopia may be getting adopted. On Tuesday, Stanton posted a photograph of a cameraman named Duane. According to a HONY Facebook post, Duane and his wife had been unable to conceive, and had recently decided to adopt a 7-year-old Ethiopian girl named Chaltu who'd been blinded in one eye. When Stanton asked if he could share Duane's story on HONY, the cameraman shyly made one request. "Would there be any possibility that you could help us raise the adoption fees to get her a brother?"

12 Disney Princesses Dress UpArtist Isaiah Stephens has been drawing since he was four-years-old, so it's no surprise that the Disney movies have rubbed off on his artwork. Almost 20 years later, The New England Institute of Art... grad has rocked the online world with drawings of the Disney princesses. But they aren't just regular drawings and Isaiah's princesses aren't wearing the usual gowns and gloves.

Why Aren't You At Work? Answered.

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 23:30
Why Aren't You At Work?You know those precious moments in between a dentist appointment and the subway back to work, when you realize there are people walking their dogs in sweats? Then, there are those sunny days when you... see diners eating in the gourmet deli, while you rush to pick up a sandwich on your 10-minute lunch break. And, what about those few seconds when you grab a coffee mid-afternoon and realize the bookstore is (gasp!) full. What is that all about? Like, seriously: Why are these people not at work? Obviously, there are those with careers (freelance anything, night shifts, students, etc.) that don't follow the 9-to-5 grind. And, we wanna find out what they are, and how much time they actually afford people to be, well, away from their desk. So, we decided to ask the question, "Why aren't you at...

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 23:25
Vienna's Leopold MuseumThe director of the Leopold Museum in Vienna, Tobias Natter, resigned in protest from his position on Monday. His decision came after Peter Weinhäupl, the museum's managing director, was last month... appointed as the chairman of the controversial new Gustav Klimt Foundation, a body linked to the estate of Gustav Ucicky, a Nazi propaganda film-maker and the illegitimate son of Gustav Klimt. Weinhäupl's partner Sandra Tretter, who worked for the Leopold Museum for many years, and his brother also have positions on the foundation's board. "For a long time the Leopold Museum has been under these dark clouds [the Nazi looted art debate], we were the looted art museum par excellence. But in the last few years we have done much to improve this public perception and it is therefore our...

How Do You Shop Underwear for Halloween?

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 23:19
How Do You Shop Underwear forWhen you think of Halloween and underwear, Mean Girls may come to mind. You know, that scene where they say that Halloween is just an excuse to dress in barely there underwear and pose as a "sexy"... version of something for the night. When you work in an industry full of male underwear models, you see that this statement is true for men as well as women. We at The Underwear Expert definitely acknowledge the idea of the sexy underwear Halloween costume, but we'd like to offer you some other suggestions about how you can get your underwear drawer into the spirit of Halloween. Literal & Campy Halloween is the start of tacky sweater season. What started out as horrific style, the tacky sweater has etched a place in "ironic/not ironic" parties around the world.

Princess Madeleine's ElleGet yourself to a newsstand stat: Princess Madeleine's on the cover of Elle Sweden and she looks gorgeous. The Swedish royal graces the magazine's November 2013 issue, donning a green coat and an... ABBA-worthy feathered blowout. Frankly, we can't believe she had a moment to shoot the cover at all. Between her June wedding to financier Christopher O'Neill, her job in New York and her pregnancy, the 31-year-old has had a lot on her plate these days. In the issue, Madeleine reportedly talks to Elle about her pregnancy, saying it happened "a little fast and very suddenly." And if the rumor mill is to be believed, she and O'Neill are expecting a baby girl (Prince George's future girlfriend, perhaps?). As of now, though, the sex of the future royal tot remains unconfirmed. What we can confirm?...

No doubt the press-shy executive's charm offensive has something to do with the city's recent lawsuit against the company, which seeks to at least temporarily halt production in the middle of peak season, because locals have been choking on capsaicin fumes around the clock.

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 23:09
10 Little Things Women Do ToWhat's the quickest way to fix a bad mood? It may be one of the sweetest and simplest acts of all: a hug. Insurance company AXA interviewed male and female Londoners about the little things they did... to boost their moods. Here's what the 2,728 women surveyed said would cheer them up on a bad day: 1. A hug. And what could be better than hugging a loved one? Besides being comforting, it lowers your blood pressure, boosts your memory, releases bonding hormone oxytocin and reduces stress and anxiety. 2. Seeing friends. A July 2013 study found that people's happiness increased by 8 percent when they spent time with friends. Though dragging yourself out to happy hour or the movies might be the last thing you feel like when you're in a bad mood, it might be the best thing you can do for yourself....

Why The Striped Shirt Is Your Closet's MVP

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 23:00
Why The Striped Shirt Is YourHere's that old desert-island game again -- you know, the one where you pick what you'd like to have if you ever found yourself stranded. And, no, Ryan Gosling is not available. We'll take a... toothbrush, maybe our iPads, and you can bet there will also be a striped tee with us. Jokes and hypotheticals aside, the striped top is by far one of the hardest working items in our closets. It's a piece that we truly get the most leverage out of, since it can be worn solo or paired with anything -- literally, anything -- because it acts as a neutral (as far as we're concerned). Need concrete proof? We've rounded up a few inspiration shots ahead that are true testaments to the trend. Plus, we've included the shopping suggestions that will make sure your bags are packed properly in case that...

Rejoice! Kate Upton's NotPhoto: Courtesy of Golf Digest. Kate Upton's no stranger to nudity. In fact, she's so aware of the way her image is perceived that she believes she's indebted to Carine Roitfeld for being the first... editor to shoot her in something other than a bikini. And, in some weird way, we're indebted, too. Upton's a fantastic model and her Golf Digest cover is a testament to that. With three Sports Illustrated covers under her (invisible) belt, the world is pretty familiar with Upton -- intimately familiar. So, when we first caught wind of her Golf Digest role, we threw a little side eye. Kate Upton, Arnold Palmer, and the very buttoned-up sport? Was she going to be put in a skimpy, golf ball-patterned one-piece laying on the green with a putter? Was she going to ride on top of a cart? Sexy caddy?...

His lawyer, Mark Geragos, said rehab was not an admission of guilt, but that the musician may have been sobered by his unexpected stay in a D.C. holding cell.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Reportedly Joins 'Avengers' Sequel

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 22:53
Aaron Taylor-JohnsonAaron Taylor-Johnson is apparently set to don new superhero garb in Marvel's "The Avengers: Age of Ultron." Back in June, it was reported that the "Kick-Ass" actor was the front-runner to portray... Quicksilver in Joss Whedon's blockbuster follow-up to "The Avengers." Now, TheWrap notes that Taylor-Johnson has closed a deal to take on the role after verifying that the "Ultron" shooting schedule won't clash with his publicity tour for the forthcoming "Godzilla" remake. Quicksilver is set to appear in two much-anticipated comic book sequels, "Ultron" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past." In "X-Men," the superhero's evil origins will be on display, with Evan Peters ("American Horror Story") taking that role. The "Avengers" sequel picks up after Quicksilver and twin sister Scarlet Witch pledge to...

We all know social media can make us feel bad about ourselves. There have been countless articles and even scientific studies proving that sites like Facebook contribute to feelings of envy, jealousy,... and sadness due to the fact that people tend to post their life's highlight reel, instead of the mundane reality.Indeed, there are few things that can make you feel more inadequate than Facebook. You can really feel like a winner until you sign on and are reminded of that one thing that you haven't yet gotten around to (i.e. your mother forwarding you that article about your increasing age and waning fertility, or the way your favorite pair of jeans pinch you a little too tightly when you sit down lately). These tiny little reminders are like pinpricks that add up to one giant ache of "not...

After My Mastectomy

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 22:30
After My MastectomyPhoto: Courtesy Of Bessie Oster. I liked my old breasts -- I really did. That wasn't my issue. As a friend said, "You have ticking time bombs strapped to your chest." I inherited the breast-cancer... gene mutation, BRCA1, from my mother, who first developed cancer in her 30s. This gave me a nearly 90% chance of developing breast cancer, and also a high risk of ovarian cancer. Choosing to remove a part of my body -- a favorite part -- was not an easy move. I got the genetic test results at 30. While I believed that elective surgery was the right move, I was terrified that my spirit would somehow be broken by the gravity of the decision. I am physically strong. (I'm a damn good arm wrestler and have completed a few triathlons, albeit very slowly.) I'm pretty much game for anything. (At 18, I...

(2) Industrious DIY-ers can spring for the new Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book (Grand Central Life & Style; $30), and bake their own. And (3), hopeless procrastinators can line up outside the Gowanus bakery in the wee hours of November 26, 27, or 28 and take their chances on the limited first-come, first-serve supply of salty-honey, bittersweet-chocolate-pecan, brown-butter-pumpkin, or salted-caramel-apple ($38 to $40).
