The Oscars Swag Bag Includes a Pelvic Floor Tracker

While every Oscars nominee hopes they'll end up taking home a gold statue, even the 'losers' receive one heck of a consolation prize: The legendary swag bag that last year totaled over $200,000. Past goody bags have included everything from luxe vacations to jewelry and even free plastic surgery procedures.

Founder of Fit Body Guide, Anna Victoria, took to Instagram earlier this week to prove that, “Lighting. Is. Everything."

"99% of pictures you see on social media are taken in the best possible lighting and that ain’t no accident,” she wrote along side-by-side photos of herself. “When I got into the elevator with the lighting on the right, I zoned in on the cellulite on the back of my arms,” she continued. “Yes, cellulite on your arms is a thing! I’ve had it since the beginning of my journey and while it’s lightened up since then, it’s still not totally gone … because I’m human.”

3 New Ways to Enjoy Nut Milk

Brew a deluxe afternoon latte: Froth hazelnut milk to make a coffee drink that tastes deliciously nutty and dessert-like with an indulgent velvety texture, says Hines.

Blend up a rich soup: Use pistachio milk in potato-leek soup for a complex, layered flavor and a silky-smooth broth. (Love leeks? Try these clever leek recipes too.)

Make a creamy sauce: Swap in cashew milk for heavy cream in Alfredo sauce; your healthier pasta dish will taste just as good but be lower in fat and calories and higher in protein.

Or, Make It Yourself

Pulse whole, shelled nuts in a blender or a chopper. Then combine two parts water with one part nuts; cover, and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, simmer the mixture for about an hour (some people skip this step, but it makes the milk extra silky, says chef Maria Hines), then puree in a high-speed blender. Push through a fine-mesh sieve, and chill. (Don't have a sieve? Try this Homemade Almond Cashew Milk recipe that doesn't need one.)
