I Tried Kim Kardashian’s Double Spanx Trick For A Day

Turns out body shapers are the devil.

Hey guys, Nina here. Like pretty much everyone, I’m insecure about my body sometimes.

Hey guys, Nina here. Like pretty much everyone, I'm insecure about my body sometimes.

Some days I totally love my body and am amazed by it, and some days I wish it looked different. The area that I’m most insecure about is probably my belly. I’ve got a little stomach pooch (that I suck in for most photos, including this one). I’m not ashamed of it, but when you’re constantly fed images of women with flat and toned tummy areas as the ideal, you start to think your gut might not be adequate.

Because of this, I tend to stay away from bodycon dresses and other clothes that might reveal my lumps. If I wear anything that’s tight around my midsection, I cover it up with a jacket or a shirt tied around my hips (as pictured above).

Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, LOVES bodycon outfits. She recently revealed on her app that one of her tricks when she feels “heavier” is wearing “two pairs of body shapers on top of each other.”

Australians have long been early adopters of technology, and an important archeological find only confirms it.

Archeologists have identified a tiny axe fragment dating back to between 45,000 to 49,000 years ago in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Not only could it be the world’s oldest known axe, it shows the first Australians were some serious technological innovators.

The report was published Monday in the journal, Australian Archaeology.

While the fragment was excavated and dated in the 1990s, Peter Hiscock, archeologist at the University of Sydney, told Mashable Australia it was only identified as being part of a ground axe in 2014. Read more…

Let me ask you a question: What’s better than one $4.5-million, 740-horsepower Lamborghini Veneno Roadster? The answer is two, of course.

If the car’s looks, power and price tag weren’t staggering enough, realizing that only nine of the hypercars were ever built and this sight becomes even more impressive.

I call it not a sports car or supercar but rather a hypercar for good reason. The 6.5-liter V12 engine will rocket the Veneno to 60 mph from a standstill in 2.9 seconds on the way to its 220-mile-per-hour top speed. Read more…
