Sure, discos and wedding receptions do have a few things in common: a crowded dance floor, gussied up attendees, and often plenty of booze. Until we spotted the disco balls at this reception, though, we couldn't have imagined that they could also share decor. Hung in a trio of varied lengths above a table, it's easy to see these disco balls for exactly what they are: mirrored mosaics that beautifully reflect light. Still, does that make them wedding-appropriate? We want to know what you think!
Britney Spears debuted the music video for her new single, "Work B**ch," on The CW network Tuesday evening, and just a few minutes later the clip hit the web. The video features plenty of ridiculously expensive cars, a "subliminal" ad for Britney's new perfume, sharks, dancing, and a very explosive whip. Britney's not afraid to bust out a few dance moves, and she's definitely more than willing to show off her body with plenty of revealing S&M-inspired outfits. Even though the premise of the video is a little unclear, we're going to go ahead and give Brit an "A" for "Abs."
It's been an exciting month for die-hard Britney fans; we all got to celebrate the 15th anniversary of her big debut just as she made her big announcement. Not only is Britney's eighth studio album set for release on Dec. 3 (the day after her birthday), but she's also beginning a residency in Las Vegas next year. The "Work B**ch" video will just have to tide us over until then. Watch the video, and be sure to tell us how you felt about it below!
If you're stumped by how to style an awkward corner in your home, designer Bryant Keller might have a solution. While striped walls could scare some, Bryant fearlessly uses them in a way that visually unites and separates this corner from the rest of the space. The linear impact of the stripes is softened with curvy shapes, like the teardrop-shaped pendant and tulip table. A group of four nearly identical art pieces stacked uniformly also balances the asymmetrical stripes.
We applaud Bryant's unexpected wall graphics and chic styling, but we want to know what you think!
Much like her powerful pipes, singer Christina Aguilera's closet has a stage-worthy presence. With a theatrical design that includes leopard carpet, pink shelving, and rouge red drapes, this space refuses to save the drama. While some could only dream of turning a closet like this into a personal catwalk, others might prefer something a bit more tranquil. Tell us, which closet category suits you?
If you haven't heard of a toe kick — the indented strip below cabinets — it's because they're easy to miss. In fact, you might be scanning the room right now just to see if your cabinet has one. It does. While a toe kick allows you to stand closer to your cabinets, it's not exactly a feast for the eyes. Ripe for a colorful customization, stylist Emily Henderson makes a case for toe kick pimping with this easy cabinet DIY!
Oh Joy! blogger Joy Cho is the lucky owner of this tricked-out toe kick, which helps to brighten her beautiful studio. Tell us, is this a project you'd tackle in your home, office, or studio?
The Navy Yard shooting that killed 12 innocent people on Monday demonstrated yet again that mass shootings in America aren't going away all by themselves. Gunman Aaron Alexis reportedly bought his gun legally in Virginia after he passed a federal background check. And while he clearly had a record of mental illness, under current federal law, he still had a right to a gun. Only people declared mentally ill by a court, which is a difficult thing to do, are prohibited from buying a gun. A mental illness diagnosis is not enough.
This week, President Obama once again reached out to Congress to take on gun control. In an interview with Telemundo, he said we need a firm background check system, for example, to make the country less vulnerable. He continued:
"I do get concerned that this becomes a ritual that we go through every three, four months, where we have these horrific mass shootings. Everybody expresses understandable horror. We all embrace the families and obviously our thoughts and prayers are with those families right now — as they're absorbing this incredible loss. And yet we're not willing to take some basic actions that we know would make a difference."
Since the Newtown massacre that left 20 children and six adults dead, there have been 17 mass shootings in the US that have killed more than four people. Many of those don't make the news. On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he plans to prioritize gun-control legislation, however, he's not hopeful. He said: "We don't have the votes. I'd like to get them, but we don't have them now."
Robert Pattinson may have had a special someone in mind during his recent interview with Australia's Sunday Style. In the magazine, Rob is quoted candidly discussing his take on forgiveness and relationships. Rob told Sunday Style, "I'm quite sensitive, and I do like a bit of grand gesturing, but that's just my ego. I like to give people presents and I think of myself as the best gift giver, but only because I get stuff for myself and then make it work for the other person."
He also went on to reveal, "There's not very much that really bothers me. I don't ever feel the need to forgive or expect people to be. I judge people on their actions. I don't really care if it's wrong or right, I give them the benefit of the doubt. If they do something I can't be bothered to deal with, I just cut them out." His comments to the publication have stirred speculation that they could be directly related to his May breakup with his longtime girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, since the pair were involved with a highly publicized cheating scandal in July 2012.
Rob and Kristen have obviously gone their separate ways, and many feel that it was due to the fact that he could not get past the incident in which she was caught kissing her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, last Summer. Do you think Rob's comments about forgiveness and cutting someone out are directed at his ex Kristen?
Switching out your desk chair for an exercise ball can improve your posture and strengthen your core, so why are some of us hesitant to take the plunge? Aside from the issue of stability, there's one other obvious drawback to this office trend: the eyesore factor. Luckily, PB Teen may have a solution.
Their inflatable Rockin' Roller Desk Chair ($149) not only comes with a foot pump, but a metal chair stand — which you can opt out of using — and a choice of seven fuzzy slipcovers. While the furlicious option (pictured here) evokes the type of '60s flokati vibe we're usually suckers for, we're not sure how we feel about this particular pairing.

Mila Kunis sparked rumors of a possible engagement to her boyfriend, Ashton Kutcher, as she sported a gold band on her ring finger to run errands around LA yesterday. While nothing has been confirmed, the pair, who have been romantically linked since April of last year, do share a long history together as former costars on That '70s Show. Even if Mila's ring is a result of Ashton popping the question, it could be awhile before we see the couple head down the aisle because Ashton is still in the midst of a divorce with Demi Moore.
It's been over a year since Mila and Ashton started dating, and the pair are known for their PDA-filled outings as well as romantic getaways overseas, which have many speculating that Mila's ring could be a sign. Even their former That '70s Show castmate Laura Prepon predicted wedding bells in their future during a recent interview, saying, "They are totally going to marry, we just don't know when." Do you hope she's right?
Keeping chickens is all the rage these days, and while we are all for it, there is a limit to what we are willing to shell out for our fine feathered friends. This geodesic dome is pretty darn nice but at $1,749 is it too nice? In other words, would your chickens have to invite you over when you wanted to throw a party?
