Looks Aren't Everything. Believe me, I'm a model. Wow! This is a truly honest, fantastic look into what modeling is REALLY like. Definitely a must-watch.

This is a little old but we hadn't seen it before: How to Pack Two Weeks in a Carry-On, from Seventeenth & Irving. Great to bookmark for spring break!

*

Also old but worthwhile: Excerpts from "How to be Perfect". These are, well, perfect.

*

Love this: I'll Be Happy When… SO many girls do this (I know I used to!), and it's incredibly destructive to happiness.

Instead of future tripping everyday on what I need to do to get where I want to be, I’m focusing on what I have to give each day. By turning my attention away from where I’m lacking onto what I have to share, I’m finally experiencing all that happiness and satisfaction I “thought” I’d feel once I achieved my goals.

The SAG awards are this Sunday, 1/27, (be sure to follow CF on Twitter - we'll be live-tweeting the red carpet arrivals on Sunday starting at 6PM Eastern!), and to celebrate, People did a piece on SAG stars before they were famous.

*

I'm not sure how to really describe Fun Switcher, except "awesome" and "going to annoy your roomies".

*

Into The Gloss is doing a "Foundation Week". Day 1 was pretty amazing if only for the "Ikea Bookshelf" foundation shade suggestion, and Day 2, where Molly lists her faves, had some great recommendations at all price points.

5 Psychology Studies Every Awkward Teenager Should Read, from Cracked. I found #2 really interesting - it definitely makes sense when you think about it!

One more from Cracked: 4 Foods Renamed So That You Might Actually Eat Them. I want to know why prunes weren't just called "dried plums" in the first place…

The ultimate iPhone case for nail polish addicts. Love this idea, though Chanel's legal department probably wouldn't.
