12 Greeting Cards That Are Totally Worth The Postage

12 Greeting Cards That Are Totally Worth The Postage

Do it old school.

Rifle Paper Co.

From Papyrus to Kate Spade to the classic Hallmark, cute greeting cards are the perfect throwback that can warm anyone's heart. To show people the power of a handwritten note, I always tell them that when my older brother was born, my dad wrote a thank you card to the doctors and nurses that took care of my mom. When I was born, the hospital staff remembered my parents and the heartfelt card my dad sent so much, that they treated my mother like a queen. That was 23 years ago and now, a handwritten note is even more uncommon. If you're feeling like thanking someone, expressing your love, or simply sending a card "just because," check out these amazing paper goods!

1. For someone you miss dearly

It never hurts to call your mom on the phone. It never hurts to send your grandma a card. Give them a little extra love that will sure to make their day!

2. For your best friend on their birthday

Give your best friend a little more than some bling on their hotline. Give them a card that says, "You're one day older. Live it, love it."

3. For your old roomie that just got engaged

Let's not pretend we aren't most excited about the new hardware on her left hand. Celebrate her frosting with a card. It's the least you can do.

4. For your nature-loving soulmate

Otters fall asleep holding hands. Best friends do too.

5. For the aging cheese aficionado

Sometimes a card is the best way to remind people that not everything rots as it gets older.

6. For the self-involved recent grad

You will never love Kanye as much as Kanye loves Kanye.

7. For the upstairs neighbor that just moved away

Hopefully the new people that move in are less noisy!

8. For the man that you have a not-so-subtle crush on

It's only creepy if he knows it's you.

9. For the girl from high school that is having her third baby while you are still eating Nutella out of the jar

Time to really clean up your Facebook wall. There's only so many babies and proposals that one woman can take!

10. For your co-worker that is have a 'Lemonade'-themed birthday party.

I got you this card and I ain't sorry.

11. For your boyfriend that gave up playing Pokemon Go to help you clean the dishes

12. For your friend who has no boundaries

Which one would you send?

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
