AN ARMPIT-LESS KIM K: Kim Kardashian shared this photo on Facebook this week to promote some tan in a can and it appears the Kardashian's in-house Photoshop expert has robbed the poor woman of sweat glands, or even an armpit at all (can you imagine living without armpits? Sweat would just start pouring out of somewhere far less concealable. 'Oh, goodness, Kim, are you okay? Your fingers are gushing water').
THIS FITSPIRATION: At just over five foot tall, American gymnast Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman to ever complete an 'American Ninja Warrior' obstacle course last week. What's American Ninja Warrior, you ask? Basically an incredibly athletic jungle gym that makes CrossFit look like aqua aerobics in the hard-department. Watch Kacy smash it out here. She's our new gym inspiration: Kacy, we'll think of you next time we feel like giving up after two burpees (you'll be the thing that helps us smash out three. Poorly. Painfully. YOLO).
THIS REMINDER THAT EVERYONE HAS A STORY: An organisation called Rethink Homelessness asked a bunch of folk who've found themselves living on the street in Orlando, Florida to write a fact about themselves on a piece of cardboard, highlighting their accomplishments, skills and stories: don't judge a book by its cover. Check the video out here.
THIS SPEECH: We love the NFL's first openly gay player and defensive end for the St. Louis Rams, Michael Sam: he gave an awesome, incredibly heartfelt speech when winning the Arthur Ashe bravery award at this year's ESPYs (the sports Oscars basically). About 3 minutes 45 seconds is when we went from, 'oh, great speech' to 'puddles of tears in the office, making our Stuff colleagues feel awkward'. PS: How cute is his boyfriend Vito? Hot-couple-alert.com. Check the whole speech out here.
THIS BEAUTY LIFESAVER: This little genius has overtaken a certain gold tube to become our favourite 'make-us-look-awake-when-we're-actually-sleep-deprived-and-twitchy-eyed' tool. It is $49 on shelves here, but we've been using it almost daily for around six months and still haven't run out (we actually hardly ever squeeze the tube and instead just open the lid and use the product that's gathered around the applicator). A little goes a long way. Our favourite thing about this concealer (which contains caffeine to apparently de-puff. Different) is that it doesn't cake or crepe like others we've tried - meaning our crow's feet, fine lines, etc, stay well and truly concealed. A+.
THIS TRAILER: The Sir David Attenborough-esque voice, the little cartoon turd on the swing, the fact a lot of it rings sadly true ... check it out here. Emojis live.
THESE SOCKS: We love a man that can wear jaunty socks, and dig these designs - which are each named after a classic cinematic or TV character (our favourites include the McConaissance, left, and The Bud Fox, right). Baws Socks is currently in Kickstarter mode, and buying the socks means pledging to get the ankle-adorning business off the ground. Pledge $NZ25.50 or more and get one pair of the Italian-made socks, pledge $NZ96 or more and get four pairs (we like the idea that we can get a bit of online shopping done - guilty pleasure - and yet still feel kind of good about it because we're helping a small business, started by a Kiwi, grow). Click here to order the pair that matches your spirit-character.
THIS MAN'S SECRET TALENT: Actor and musician Matt Bittner has a Kardashian-watching West Coast American teen living inside of him. It needs to be heard to be believed.
