The fashion world has "It" models, the health world has trendy, hard to pronounce superfoods ("ah-sah-EE" anyone?), and the beauty world has miracle oils. Moroccan and argan oils had their moment of glory, but they're old news now. Coconut oil is next in line for 15 minutes of fame -- it is to beauty what Cara Delevingne is to fashion. Everywhere you look, coconut oil is being flogged as the next best thing. It removes makeup! You can shave with it! It'll whiten your teeth! It even came up in our 5 Questions interviews with both Giada De Laurentiis and Miranda Kerr, surrounded with the words "love" and "favorite." read more
You've seen those stories before: If Barbie were a real woman she'd be anorexic, hunched over from her massive chest, and unable to walk on her freakishly tiny feet. The pictures of Barbie reconfigured to "life size" are bizarre, too. But what if you took that idea and flipped it around? read more
When you're camping out, you want to be the girl who whips together a tent in 10 seconds flat. The one who knows how to forage for edible berries and start a campfire with twigs and two rocks. Like MacGuyver, with ovaries. What you don't want to be? The girl complaining about mosquito bites, a sunburn or your greasy hair. But there's a fine line between being prepared and packing like a Kardashian. You camp. You don't "glamp." read more

This is absolutely fascinating: a dress that can track eye contact. The designer dress, created by Montreal based designer Ying Yao, is rigged with new technology that senses eye movements. When eyes are on the dress, sensors trigger tiny motors in the fabric and make the dress move. read more
It's the first official day of summer, and what better way to kick off the season of triangle string bikinis than with a step-by-step guide on how to spot a boob job? read more
American tampon commercials are ridiculous. I mean, what woman prances around in white shorts, picks flowers in a field with her gal pals, or jumps around like a high school cheerleader when she's bleeding? No one, that's who. Periods suck ... period. read more
Peeping-up-the-skirt Toms are apparently a big problem in China. Women are discouraged from wearing "revealing" dresses and skirts on public transportation to keep prying eyes away from their thighs, but we love this novel new way to fend off leering pervs: hairy tights. read more
In the range of permanent mistakes (i.e. the perm you debuted for senior portraits to having that last kid), trashy tattoos fall somewhere in the middle. Those dolphin and rainbow tats you see on women who have barstools tattooed with their names -- not so surprising. read more
We love all of the latest outcries for realistic body images in the media, like your responses to PETA's Miss USA ad on our Facebook page and the UK retailer who made a public promise to cut back on airbrushing its models. Victoria's Secret is in the spotlight again, too.
