Think bongs are just an apparatus for smoking marijuana? They can also be works of art, as a new exhibit in New York demonstrates. It’s called “Outlaw Glass” and runs through May 27 at the ApexArt gallery in lower Manhattan. The point of the exhibition, as the press release states, is to show “how the most exciting movement in art glass today comes from those creating innovative, high-end artifacts that just happen to double as tools for getting high.” The curators have weeded out some outstanding examples as proof. Some are so beautiful, you might think twice about smoking out of them. Nahhh.  — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject[…]

I started practicing yoga about two years ago, and it changed my life in so many ways: yoga changed how I run, it helped with my anxiety, and it even redirected the course of my career, playing a huge role in how I ended up here at POPSUGAR as a fitness editor. The practice of yoga can totally be a metaphor for life off the mat – like when certain things come super easily for some people, but they’re totally challenging for you, leading you to feel crazy frustrated (sound familiar?). This was the case for me and headstand. I’ve been enviously watching friends make progress, while I flailed around with my legs (sort of) in the air, but nowhere[…]

The issue with the internet is that there’s just too much of it. For instance, look at the #FireColbert movement that got started on Twitter recently.  This all happened after Donald Trump insulted Stephen Colbert’s fellow CBS host John Dickerson of “Face the Nation.” During the “Late Show” on Monday, Colbert let loose.  “When you insult one member of the CBS family, you insult us all. BAZINGA!” said Colbert, before firing off a barrage of insults at the president, one of those being, “The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.” Insulting Trump is nothing new for Colbert. He does it nightly, and his ratings have improved “bigly” because of it. The problem is he insulted the[…]
