The FLOTUS Says Farewell to Her 40s – By Way of Dancing

She fights childhood obesity, wears J.Crew, and is best friends with Beyoncé. We already love Michelle. But today, we love her even more as she proudly flaunts the AARP card that ushers her into the world of fifty-somethings.

Happy Birthday, Michelle Obama!

How will she be celebrating, you ask? A dance party, according to ABC7 News. It’s too soon to tell whether we’re talking ballroom or freestyle, but it will take place Saturday night at the White House.

We just hope Ellen got an invite.

Code Red: Why Computer Science Needs Women

Apparently the cursive I learned in elementary school is outdated.

The Hour of Code Initiative

The newest push in education? Coding. And this week – backed by the likes of Mark Zuckerberg, Ashton Kutcher, and the POTUS himself – computer science education website Code.org is making that clear. Introducing “The Hour of Code,” an initiative which encourages schools to teach their students coding (not cursive) for an hour this week.

“Don’t just buy a new video game – make one,” Obama speaks out. “Don’t just download the latest app – help design it.”

Now ladies, here’s where you come in: According to ELLE, “By 2020, there are expected to be one million jobs in tech and programming. But while 57% of bachelor’s degrees are earned by women, only 12% of computer science degrees are held by women.” Which means tech jobs (like this company) are going to need you. Lots of you.

Start learning now.

Break Out Your Scrunchies: They’re Back

Oh, yes. You read that right. The scrunchable hair staple of yesteryear is making a comeback: luxe scrunchies have found their way into the Fall 2013 collections of Missoni and Marc Jacobs. And they’re yours for the taking… at upwards of $95 a piece.

Scrunchies

In defense of the revival? Jennifer Aniston’s stylist – the man behind her recently chopped look – who recently told ELLE he “loves a scrunchie.”

But seriously, do you dare? Read ELLE‘s full history of the scrunchie here, then decide for yourself.

We want to see your scrunchie pics. Tweet us at @ruelala to share.

ELLE’s Tough-Love Guide to Sleep Deprivation

Monday’s tomorrow. Le sigh. Which means, newsflash: you should probably get some sleep.

No? A few more things to check off that to-do list? Well, according to this infographic from ELLE, your beauty, health – and yes, even potentially your sanity – are at stake here.

When you get less than seven hours of sleep, you risk slowing down your metabolism (and the resulting weight gain), decreased short-term memory, and, in the long term, cardiovascular disease. With every hour less than the minimum that you get, your risk increases.

So how about you turn off that iPad® for now, warm up some milk, and cozy into bed with a really bad book, okay?

See the full infographic on ELLE.

SJP Joins Twitter – and Uses Her Eye as a Profile Pic #dontblink

It’s seldom we get too excited when any celebrity joins Twitter – aren’t they all tweeting by now? – but this time, it’s different. Sarah Jessica Parker signed up this week, tweeting under the minimalistic handle of @SJP. We wonder at the success of Twitter’s IPO and Ms. Parker’s timing… coincidence?

Sarah Jessica Parker

And she’s picked quite an unusual profile picture. As ELLE UK says, “If you were expecting a side of beautiful imagery with her musings, prepare to be disappointed: her profile picture is a close-up of her (admittedly, immaculately made-up) eye.”

Read more about it on ELLE UK.
