* Lifehacker shares the 5 kitchen skills that will make your life easier. Have you mastered them all?

* The Disney Prince Hotness Ranking, from Buzzfeed. I totally agree with their #1 pick. Do you?

* Since the Oscars are this Sunday (be sure to follow CF on Twitter – we’ll be live-tweeting the Oscar red carpet arrivals on Sunday starting at 5:30pm Eastern!), Buzzfeed has a great guide to faking that you’ve seen all 9 Best Picture nominees.

* And if you’re throwing an Oscar viewing party, why not cook up one of these menus inspired by the nominees?

* Speaking of awards shows, who do you think was best-dressed at the Costume Designers Guild Awards? Hathaway brought the fierce for sure.

* 24 Things That Make You Beautiful, from Thought Catalog. Aw, this is super sweet.

* Our friends at The Gloss show you How to Deal with Stress… in illustrated form! Ahh, love their Illustrated Guide posts – they’re pretty much always full of win.

* We’re trying not to do too many Buzzfeed links (we heard you guys!), however, they DID discover your new favorite breakup song. Pretty great, and we’re always a fan of crazy solo-dancing.

* Pedo Parties and Racist Ragers: Why Are Frat Bros Fixated on Sketchy Theme Parties? While everyone loves a theme party, have these frat party themes have gone way too far? Have you ever been invited to parties with themes like these?

* Holy wow. I thought I blew a lot of money at Starbucks, but $47.30 for one Starbuck’s drink? Definitely beats my Sbux spending record.

* Just in time for Spring Break, Lauren Conrad tells you how to pack your beauty products.

* While we love Cosmo, we DID really enjoy this awesome article that takes the message of a Cosmo article on “How to Meet a Man by Summer” and changes it into “How to Become Awesome by Summer”. This is a wonderful and empowering idea.

* 5 Things Adults Should Not Be Allowed to Get Mad About, from Cracked. Hahah, this is so true (though I know a few people – *cough* ALL OF BOSTON EXCEPT ME – who would wholeheartedly disagree on #3).

* Attention, Nerdfighters: You will all be excited about this piece of news!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s totally into Aladdin!! Also, Hautelinks is my favorite weekly column, and I’ve never commented so I thought I’d just drop a note and say thanks so much for writing it– I enjoy it every single time.

    ALMOST agree on the disney princes thing, but I think that Flynn Rider should have definitely been closer to one. Aladdin should have been 3, Flynn Rider at 2, and Eric at 1.
