Katy Perry donates $175,000 from California Dreams tour to charities, including the Humane Society! »
I’m done hating on Katy Perry. I must have been unhappy with some aspect of myself (not being an adorable pop star married to Russell Brand, perhaps). I’m going to use this forum to come out and say it: I’m a Katy Perry fan. (Don’t worry, I kind of hate myself too). I have bought more of her songs than I care to admit on itunes, which I play when I invite people over for some elegant debauchery. Ask Sarah, we’ve jumped around and sang TGIF countless times on my porch (#tweens)! Oh, and she does a fab rendition of "California Gurls" at karaoke, let me tell you. I clapped my hands with glee the entire time.

Now that I’ve come clean, let’s proceed! Katy Perry is donating $175,000 of her ticket sales from the California Dreams tour to over 50 charities, including the Humane Society, Generosity Water and the Children’s Health Fund. Each organization is rumored to receive around $40,000 each! Haters gonna hate, but I’m not one of them anymore!

Vegan deviled eggs? Don’t mind if I do! »
My roommate Crystal Paul and I, as the charming and charismatic hostesses/brilliant chefs we are, can usually be found throwing parties at our apartment. She’s great at finding amazing vegan recipes online, then making them a delicious reality. The last party was a Mad Men-inspired cocktail/vegan hors d’œuvres rager; elegant debauchery at its finest.

Our spread: vegan shrimp from Rainbow, Oreos, stuffed mushrooms, deviled eggs, and all the way on the bottom left—that’s my spinach dip. One of these days, if I’m feeling generous, maybe I’ll give you the recipe. Fine, twist my arm, as soon as I write down how I made it, I’ll post it.
