Get off your bum as quickly as possible, because it turns out that too much sitting is linked to certain kinds of cancer, including colon and endometrial cancers. According to a study done at the University of Regensburg in Germany, people who spend the most time sitting during the day have 24 percent increased risk of getting colon cancer, and women who sat all day had a 32 percent increased risk of endometrial cancer. The good news? Even periodically getting up can help reduce your risk. [Web MD]   read more

Nicole Richie Enters Her Blue (Hair) Period

• We seriously loved Nicole Richie's purple hair. She was one of the few actually-adult, thirty-something ladies rocking colorful hair who managed to do it with style and class. Now, it seems, Nicole has given up the purple for something slightly louder. She's gone totally blue! The new hue look is a sort of electric tone, a bit more punk. We like, but we may have warm and fuzzy feelings for the purple. [Glamour]   read more

Is Lululemon's Luster Gone for Good?

Maybe it's because the company is steeped in bad karma (founder Chip Wilson famously named his business Lululemon because he thought it was "funny" to watch Japanese people try to pronounce "L") or because of a string of public relations nightmares that were mishandled at best, but, whatever the reason, Lululemon is no longer the cool kid in town-- which, considering she was the prom queen for many years running -- is saying a lot.   read more

'Orange Is the New Black': The Weirdest Place You'll Find Rad DIY Beauty Tips

The first thing I learned while watching the Netflix series "Orange is the New Black": Be thankful for bathroom stalls with doors. The dramedy, about a waspy New Yorker who gets busted for being a drug mule and ends up behind bars, is packed with teachable moments and covers the gamut of jailhouse clichés (Lesbians! Contraband! Shifty guards!), but what really stuck out was the inmates' undeniable ingenuity -- these women are the reigning queens of DIY. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade ... and when prison gives you maxi pads, make flip-flops (or upgrade to duct tape if you're fashion forward). Stole a screwdriver? Fashion a makeshift dildo!   read more
