Even though she grew up playing football, shooting hoops and running races against all the boys in her neighborhood, U.S. 800-meter champion Alysia Montano never wanted to be thought of as one of them.
As a result, she started wearing a flower behind her right ear to remind the boys they were getting beat by a girl.
“The flower to me means strength with femininity. I think that a lot of people say things like you run like a girl. That doesn’t mean you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you’re strong.”
Another lovely nail tutorial from the beauty department! I really love black nails, because they look sleek and go with most looks. I love this matted black polish with adorable polka dots. Well done! (via the beauty department)

Taylor Swift is dating a Kennedy, which is basically awesome. I’m sure this will lead to a lot of really great songs about young love, disapproving families, and windswept sailing hair. It’s pretty much the most perfectly American thing I’ve ever seen.
Oh, no. Wait.
Hahaha Oh, how I love The Olympics!
