Revamp Your Beach Routine

Impromptu beach day! That means you're scrambling to grab your bikini and chick lit for some sunning and guilty pleasure reading. But chances are you've been using the same tattered straw tote bag (you know, the one with the broken bamboo handle?) and that same bottle of SPF from, like, six years ago.   read more

The Ultimate Beauty Bucket List

There are two kinds of bucket lists. One involves smug, self-congratulating posts on Facebook about death-defying, overachieving feats no one really cares about but you. The other is the one we should be plotting out in the hopes that, when we do finally kick the bucket, we look fabulous. Because no one will remember you taught yourself to knit or did a handstand on the Great Wall of China. But they will talk about your 70-year-old skin looking rosy and fresh like a newborn baby's butt.   read more

The Cronut vs. The Crookie

...the Crookie. It was just a matter of time: Toronto pastry chef Olivier Jansen-Reynaud claims he's never heard of the Cronut and says his cookie-loving kids inspired the idea, but we're calling b.s. on that one. And yet, we'd still like to try his croissant-meets-Oreo abomination. We'll just have to fly to Toronto to get one. Fingers crossed on that travel request getting a green-light. Source   read more

You're Doing It All Wrong!

Quick question: have you ever given more than 15 seconds of thought (total, in your entire lifetime) to the way you wash your hands? Or spritzed on your perfume? There are just some things you do so often, like brushing your teeth or slathering on sunscreen, your brain clicks over to cruise control -- you barely give these everyday routines a second thought. In fact, this is usually primetime for spacing out and thinking about things that really matter. Like ... what you're having for lunch. Most of the time, you're just going through the motions -- you wash your hair, put on your makeup, it's done, life rolls on.   read more

Sex: The New Retinol?

We've known about the calorie-burning, endorphin-pumping good you do by getting some, but according to a British psychologist, having regular sex can make you look seven years younger.

The 20,000-Calorie Bad Idea

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut set a world record Saturday after consuming 69 hot dogs in ten minutes at the annual Famous Nathan's Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest on New York's Coney Island. We did the math: at 290 calories a pop, Chestnut gobbled more than 20,000 calories ... in hot dogs ... in ten minutes. (And ladieeeez, we hear he's single!) Terrifying, but at the same time, it makes us feel better about the pints of ice cream we've killed in a single sitting. Source   read more

Long John Silver's "Big Catch" platter of fried fish, hushpuppies and onion rings racks up 1,320 calories, 3,700 milligrams of sodium, and a whopping 33 grams of trans fat. Source   read more
