  • We want our food organic and ethically sourced.

    We care about packaging: we want less of it, and for it to be recyclable or reusable — or even edible.

    And apparently we want the same things for our pets.

    Human food trends are increasingly influencing pet-food product development, in part because we humanize our pets and want to offer them treats that reflect our food-buying values, writes Debbie Phillips-Donaldson, editor-in-chief of Petfood Industry.

    (And, like us, pets are getting fatter and we’re starting to pay closer attention to their diets.)

    Open Farm, a new family-run Canadian pet food company devoted to sourcing ethical, high-quality, local ingredients, is catering to our increasingly high standards when it comes to feeding Fido or Fluffy.

  • Unlike a certain music award show, the Oscars red carpet tends to err on the side of conservative.

    No wild space orbit dresses will make an appearance. Instead, we find the best of the best in classy couture gowns and tailored-to-perfection designer tuxedos worn by Hollywood’s leading men.

  • It wouldn’t be an award show if a couple celebrities didn’t fall flat on their faces — sartorially speaking, of course (Unless you’re Jennifer Lawrence, in which case you literally fall on your face.)

    With arguably the biggest award show of the year coming up this weekend, we always like taking you back to Oscars’ past for a reminder of the best and worst moments.

    In this case, we’re reliving some bad fashion memories — and we apologize in advance for dredging these eyesores up yet again.

    Here are the top 10 in all their heinous glory.
