We'll Miss You, Emerald: Pantone Announces Their 2014 Color Of The Year

We can't say for sure if Pantone's annual declaration of "Color of the Year" is just a novelty, or whether it has any actual influence on the decision-making of the minds behind our favorite fashion and beauty brands. Even if it seems a tiny bit arbitrary -- a designated color company choosing a color of the year, isn't that quaint? -- we're the first to admit that we're all eyes and ears when they make their announcement each season.   read more

Lana Del Rey Gets Weird in New Video

Better Than Candy: A New Bra Claims To Curb Stress Eating

Stress-eating: it's what's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And, like, five to ten snacks in between. We'd long since accepted it as just a fact of life -- as sure as the sun shall rise, when the going gets tough, we're going to eat a pint of ice cream for dinner. With a side of kale, please? No, make that chips. We never thought for a second that maybe things didn't have to be this way, that maybe there was something we could do to combat it. Talk therapy? More exercise and vitamin D? No thanks -- we're thinking more like a hi-tech bra that helps to curb overeating caused by stress.   read more
