Hautelinks - your weekly source for the best of the web

*

Stylelist displays Victoria Beckham's style evolution - her look has definitely changed a lot over the years!

*

Going to have your picture taken anytime soon? Jezebel has some tips for what to wear in a photograph.

*

Style.com did a great interview with the all-girl band Warpaint on Coachella, music influences, and their skincare regimes, among many other topics.

*

What Not to Buy at Forever 21, from Shine. Most of this is pretty true in my experience, although I do love some of their dresses.

*

Silly but kinda true: Why Guys Are Like Shoes. The key is to find the Tory Burch flats of boys - cute AND nice.

*

If you're a Lauren Conrad fan, listen up: LC just launched a new beauty blog called The Beauty Department. Featuring makeup and hair tutorials, trends, product reviews, and a lot more, it might just become your new favorite site (after CF, of course).

*

Not really sure why this is in the Wall Street Journal, but it's fab: A Model's Off-Duty Style, featuring Erin Wasson!

*

'Cause that's not creepy at all, Facebook...

*

The Huffington Post did a fascinating and frightening feature on 10 unemployed college grads, who detail their struggles searching for jobs post-college. Props to the Huffington Post, though - post-grad unemployment rates are rising, and we need to bring more awareness to this issue.

*

InStyle dishes out some great tips on how to walk in high heels.

*

*

Coachella Fashion! 60+ Rockin' Style Snaps, from Refinery 29. Love all the '70s-inspired looks!

*

Haha, oh my god... Hipster Animals may be the best blog ever.

*

REALLY hate dressing rooms? You're not the only one. Apparently, three out of four women suffer from "changing room rage"!

*

How Number Psychology Impacts the Prices You'll Pay, from Lifehacker. This is so true - I know I'm sometimes guilty of "not seeing" the .99 at the end of a price - what about you?

*

Did you know you could use sugar to kill cockroaches? Or as a hand cleaner? These are just two of the ten surprising unconventional uses for sugar.

*

With Easter coming up this weekend, why not rock one of these 11 cute Easter dresses?

*

Gala Darling did a fabulous (and brave!) post on why she doesn't want to have kids, and how she deals with people who try to pressure her into changing her mind. This is such a strangely taboo topic, so props to Gala for addressing it!

*

Haha, the socially awkward list is so true - pretty sure we've all experienced some of these! I am always the one walking at an uncomfortable speed to get past slow walkers.

*

Finally, someone explains why it's often easier to get your work done at a coffee shop (this applies to the library, too).

*

Fashionista debunks some sunscreen myths for spring and summer! The stuff about natural and "organic" sunscreens was particularly eye-opening.

*

YourTango says, YOU Are The Boss of YOU! Love this:

One of the COOLEST things about being a grown-up, in my opinion, is the part where you get to do whatever you want. You can set your own bedtime, go where you want to go, and make your own choices. In other words, no one is the boss of you. So, if that much is true - if you are the King of you - don't you have the authority to at least challenge these un-loving voices in your very own head?? As a grown adult, don't you have permission to decide which voices to keep, and which voices to chuck out the window forever?

*

Teen sensation Selena Gomez gives you a sneak peek at her new clothing line, and dishes out some styling tips. Are you interested to see more of her clothes?

*

Lifehacker breaks down the 5 traits that get you promoted to CEO. Even though most college students & recent grads are working entry-level jobs or doing internships, it's never too early to develop some of these traits!

*

Jezebel asks: Do Parents Teach Girls to Worry? I'm not sure I agree with this 100%, as every family situation is different, but it's certainly interesting and worth thinking about.

*

5 Middle School Magazines, from CollegeHumor. This made us laugh a little too hard.

*

Letters of Note is such a fabulous idea for a blog. The tagline says it all: It's about "Correspondence deserving of a wider audience."

*

Wow, these Japanese "beauty" gadgets are so weird. Kinda can't believe that some of these even exist!

*

Also weird, and, um, pretty frightening: The Scary Reality of a Real-Life Barbie Doll. But despite the creepy doll, the message is definitely a positive one.

*

And finally, for your daily dose of cute: This video of a penguin being tickled pretty much made my week.
