Obsessed: Kendall Jenner

City Waves


We all know the Kardashian sisters and thank the stars we do because without them we may not know the Jenner sisters. Yes, the Kardashian’s are all that, sure, but the Jenner’s have stepped up their game and in our book, they are winning. Sure, Kendall Jenner would have made her way into the modeling world without the help of being attached to the Kardashian family {how could she not?} but hey, better for us she made it there in lightening speed.

Over here at City Waves we have a major girl crush on Kendall. She is the epitome of the refined California style that we strive to carry. From her street and festival wear to the red carpets, Kendall maintains eloquence with ease {it may be those extremely long legs of hers…jealous}. No one can rock cutoffs and a crop top and transform to a red carpet gem like…

16 Things We Forget To Thank Our High School Friends For

Featured Image -- 1066


Thought Catalog

1. The fact that no matter how much time or distance separates you, you always return back home to laugh about the same dumb things that you’re pretty sure only you guys find funny.

2. Being the only people to truly have as much hometown pride as you do, even when you’re hometown is less than noteworthy. You made the best of it, and it holds a really special place in your heart, in all it’s ghetto, middle-of-nowhere, slightly trashy, ultimately endearing glory.

3. All the long and posed Photo Booth sessions from which you got some of your best profile pictures from.

4. Staying with you through that one heartbreak that you made much too big a deal over, with that one person who you are absolutely humiliated to say you ever even liked, let alone dated. They know. They were there. They hung around anyway.

5. Befriending our parents on…

3-year-old leads officials to his skeletal remains from past life where he was murdered

This is Incredible

New York's PIX11 / WPIX-TV

skeletal remains stock photo [FILE] (PIX11) — You can file this gem in the “Wait, what!?” category.

After making the claim that he had been murdered in a past life, a 3-year-old was able to correctly give officials the exact site of where his remains were buried.

The child, who published reports say resides in the Golan Heights region near the border of Syria and Israel, was also able to direct authorities to the location where the murder weapon was buried – an axe.

After taking the child’s claims seriously, officials uncovered a man’s skeleton as well as the axe used in the alleged murder.

The shocking tale is just one of many to come out of a recently published book, “Children Who Have Lived Before: Reincarnation Today” by author and German therapist Trutz Hardo. The claims, which for the most part have been verified, fuel the idea of reincarnation where some…

Bacon Macaroni and Cheese Recipe


1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for salting the pasta water
2 cups firmly packed shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (about 1/2 pound; Love Note 3)
1 pound fusilli (corkscrew) or other pasta, preferably De Cecco
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 pound bacon, diced (about 1 cup cooked; Love Notes 1 and 2)
1/2 cup sour cream, for garnish
3 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions, (white and green parts), for garnish

Bring a medium (6- to 8-quart) pot of water to a boil. Salt it generously (it should taste like the sea). Stir in the pasta and cook according to the package directions. Drain (but don’t rinse, or you’ll rinse away starches that will help thicken the sauce) and return to the empty pot.
Meanwhile, place a large (12- to 14-inch) sauté pan over high heat for several minutes. When hot, add the bacon and sauté until browned and crispy (lower the heat to medium-high if necessary to prevent scorching), about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and, using a slotted spoon or spatula, remove the bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels.
Pour off the fat from the pan (into a metal can or heatproof cup, not down the drain or you’ll potentially clog your pipes) and return the pan to medium-high heat. Add the heavy cream and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Lower the heat to medium and continue to simmer until the cream is reduced slightly, about 3 minutes.
Add the Cheddar cheese and bacon. Stir well and cook over medium-high heat, stirring now and then, until the cheese has melted and the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Season with the salt and pepper.
Stir the sauce into the cooked and drained pasta in the pot. Place over medium heat and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes to thicken the sauce and allow the pasta to absorb the flavors, stirring now and then.
Serve in individual bowls topped with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of sliced scallions.
Variation: Lorraine Mac & Cheese: You can easily change up this recipe by using the classic flavors of a quiche Lorraine for inspiration. You just have to add caramelized onions and substitute Swiss cheese for the Cheddar.
Pour off all but 2 tablespoons grease from the cooked bacon. Add 2 cups of finely sliced yellow onions and sauté over medium heat until soft, brown, and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Pour in the 3 cups of cream and continue with the recipe (step 3), substituting firmly packed shredded Gruyère or Swiss cheese for the Cheddar.
If you have cooked, crumbled bacon and caramelized onions on hand, the recipe is even easier. When stirring the cheese into the reduced cream, just add 1 cup bacon crumbles and 1⁄2 cup caramelized onions, too. Then proceed with the recipe.
Love Notes: At Mother’s, we prepare a lot of our components in large batches ahead of time, like the bacon crumbles in this recipe. It’s a real time-saver, and a good idea for home cooks, too. To make things easier, try fitting the work into a recipe you’re already cooking, like this one. That way you’re not getting pots and pans dirty just for the heck of it. For example, cook twice the amount of bacon and save the rest in the fridge or freezer for salads, scrambles, or sandwiches.
Dicing slippery, floppy bacon is tough—unless you firm it up with a 10- to 15-minute stint in the freezer. Stack the strips to make the job go even faster.
Avoid preshredded cheese. It may seem like a time-saver, but much of the cheese’s flavor has dissipated, and the starchy coating on the outside will interfere with the sauce.Image
