The sun is finally out, which means it's time to spend some time outdoors! But while you do, make sure to keep these important sunscreen tips in mind to avoid sun damage!

*

Animal-related in a much better way: Cuteroulette! Best. Website. Ever.

*

RealSimple has great tips to help you find comfortable shoes. The high heel tips are especially great.

*

I almost died of excitement when I saw this: A Designer Collection Inspired by "The Neverending Story"!! Did anyone else love this movie as much as I did?!

*

Courtney Love did a long and revealing interview with The Fix, touching on everything from drugs and sex to rehab, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kelly Osbourne. I'm not a Courtney fan, but I still found this interesting.

*

So cute: 15 Ways to Nourish Your Soul, from Care2.

*

One of our fave designers, L'Wren Scott, has finally joined Twitter!

*

Bright jeans are back for spring! Love J Brand's array of colors (especially the green and magenta!), although similar styles can be found for cheaper if you're on a budget.

*

Okay, we don't condone hacking, especially not when it's PBS that's getting hacked, but this is still pretty funny.

*

How Celebrities Spent Their Memorial Day Weekends. Celebs - they're just like us! Except with way nicer pools..

We're super excited for the Tom Ford documentary coming later this month!

Haha, if you frequent ONTD and other celebrity blogs, you will love Stan Wars, a site dedicated to the frequent practice of "stanning", AKA obsessive fandom for certain artists (Gaga, Britney, etc.). So funny!

*

9 Mind-Blowing Pieces of Art Made With Ridiculous Materials. Most of these are creepy, though definitely impressive.

*

Hahaha, also from Cracked: 3 Super Hip Fashion Tips for the Complete Lunatic.

*

We love Noelle Stevenson's artwork/animations! They're super cute and funny (though a couple might not be 100% work-safe). She also did an amazing Lord of the Rings parody series called "The Broship" - hilarious!

*

On a much more serious note, The Candy Shop is a powerful short film meant to raise awareness about sex trafficking in the US. It's really well done and worth watching.

*

CF reader Katie sent this in: Top 10 Fantastic and Surreal Creatures. So cool that these animals exist today!

*

CF reader and frequent commenter Kate wrote a hilarious and oh-so-true Guide to Solo Movie-Going. Love the bullet about "avoiding animal movies", haha.

*

Not really for our demographic, but still newsworthy: Jessica & Ashlee Simpson are teaming up on a tween fashion line.

*

We love Reddit. A few good Reddit threads from the past few weeks (these might not be work safe due to language): What do you wish your customers knew? - Great tips on ordering at Subway, generally awesome if you've ever worked a retail job. What's the scariest, weirdest, most mysterious website you've ever visited? - Good if you like scary stuff! And finally, I used to think "FTW" meant f**** the world. What's the funniest internet misconception you've ever had? (Confession: I used to think "SMH" meant "so much hate" - I maintain that it still kinda fits with how people use that term.)
