Overall, there’s two major trends we see yo-yo each season: super shaggy layers and sleek, blunt cuts. But the feather cut manages to blend the best of both into one chop.


Khloé Kardashian preemptively defends her six-year-old daughter wearing makeup in an Instagram post
“They are beautiful just as they are.”

Kardashian shared a photo gallery of her daughter, along with her cousins Chicago West and Dream Kardashian, from their dance performance, as any proud mum would. True wears a pink ballet tutu in some photos, while in others she wears a red-and-white striped baseball player costume, and has what appears to be a full face of makeup. But Kardashian staved off any would-be mum-shamers right in the caption, explaining that True’s beat was for performance purposes only.

The Best Places to Visit in Japan
The best places to visit in Japan shouldn’t be limited to Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. While the popular triangle is certainly convenient—and memorable—for visitors, there’s so much more to the Land of the Rising Sun than these three major cities. In fact, Japan’s true beauty lies in the rural destinations that make up the majority of the country, along with secondary and tertiary metropolises that offer a less, shall we say, traveled opportunity to view the culture.
Once you’ve ventured away from the popular trio, you’ll find yourself craving for more. Alluring landscapes that transform with the seasons, small towns embalmed in the past, the healing powers of natural wonders, and highly regional cuisine are just the tip of the iceberg. Where to start? Well, really, anywhere. Randomly point to a town on a map and you’ll probably fall in love. But if that’s too intimidating, here are 10 of the best places to visit in Japan that you probably haven’t heard of yet.

15 Easy Cocktails for Your 4th of July Cookout
No cookout is complete without a pitcher of sangria or a round of beer cocktails.

Surprise, You Might Be Salting Your Burger Too Soon
The difference between a good burger and a great burger is when the salt is added.

Seasoning food with salt is a fundamental aspect of cooking that helps balance and intensify the flavors of the ingredients. Imagine a chef on television sprinkling a heady pinch of salt over a steak or pork chop, telling the audience the salt locks in the flavor and tenderizes the meat. For the most part, it’s true. When you season the exterior of a piece of meat with salt and let it rest uncovered (a process called dry-brining), the salt draws out moisture to the surface. The salt and the surface moisture then slowly reabsorbed into the meat as it rests. This process ultimately leads to more moisture retention in the meat, resulting in a juicier steak. However, there are exceptions where salting early isn’t the best approach, like burgers. Before your next summer cookout, it’s important to know why you should wait to season your burger meat.
