Woman who fell from balcony practicing ‘extreme yoga’ is recovering ‘quickly’: report

A 23-year-old woman who fell 80 feet from a balcony in San Pedro, Mexico, after practicing “extreme yoga” has shared an update claiming that she is recovering “quickly.”

FITNESS EXPERT JAILED FOR THREATENING HER RIVALS ON INSTAGRAM: ‘GONNA RAIN FIRE DOWN ON YOUR WORLD’

In August, college student Alex Terrazas was photographed practicing a yoga pose, hanging upside down over a balcony railing with her knees bent. She lost her balance and fell from the sixth floor of the apartment building, causing her to break 110 bones and undergo 11 hours of surgery, according to Mexican newspaper El Universal.

Now, nearly two months later, the woman has revealed she is recovering well, despite the massive injuries she sustained, according to published reports.

According to Mexican news outlet Milenio, Terrazas has made significant improvements in her health.

“I really want to send you thank you so much for so much prayer, for so many good vibes, I feel very great, and thanks to that I have made many advances, even the doctors are shocked and they did not believe that my body would react so quickly,” she said in a translation, Milenio reported.

The outlet reported that Terrazas recently had surgery on one of her elbows to help restore the mobility of her hands and arms. She also receives daily physical therapy.

Though the nutrition student reportedly will need to have more surgeries in the future, she has been positive about recovery.

“Thank God it was an incredible day yesterday, I had a lot of progress, I had the opportunity to stop for the first time after almost a month and a half, I could have dinner alone, I achieved a lot of things yesterday, I am very proud,” she said in a translation reported by Milenio.

Cracker Barrel-loving family celebrates son’s first birthday at restaurant chain

The beloved country store has a new fan – and he may be the youngest yet.

Little Michael Magnotta made his Cracker Barrel debut last month in New Jersey as an early celebration for his first birthday. The tot, who turned 1 on Oct. 3, ventured out to the popular chain on Sept. 29 with his family to mark the exciting occasion.

However, his appetite for the restaurant chain was inevitable.

Michael Magnotta, father of the newest country store lover, fell in love with Cracker Barrel in April 1998 when his grandparents took him for the first time to a location in Georgia.

Since then, for the past 20 years, Michael has been visiting Cracker Barrels across the country. When he married his wife, Nicole, the love for the chain continued – the pair incorporated the restaurant into their wedding day by having Cracker Barrel cornbread on each table, and having a peg game with pegs matching their wedding colors.

Currently, his count is up to 100 – which he celebrated by driving from New Jersey with his wife to Lebanon, Tenn., home of the first Cracker Barrel.

Once the pair hit the impressive 100-store mark, the Magnottas decided to postpone visiting any more new Cracker Barrels until their son was born to start the next batch of 100 visits off right and ensure their family tradition was being passed down from the beginning, a press release shared.

Though this family is definitely dedicated to carrying on the Cracker Barrel tradition, they still have a long way to go before they can catch up to Ray and Wilma Yoder – the 80-year-old couple from Indiana who has visited all 645 Cracker Barrel locations in America.

Krispy Kreme debuts new Halloween-themed doughnuts

It’s the Monster Batch.

Krispy Kreme has released its own eerie sight with a new collection of cyclops doughnuts to celebrate the Halloween season — though they’re probably more cute than scary.

The brand unveiled its three new confections – and their individual backstories – on Monday, including: the bright green “Slimon,” described as a “Slime Monster” made with an original glazed doughnut filled with lemon and topped with green icing; “Mumford,” a mummy-themed doughnut made with an original glazed topped with a “wrapping” of white and purple frosting; and finally, likely the sweetest of all the new offerings, is “Hypno-Henry,” a glazed doughnut filled with cake batter and topped with yellow icing, orange sanding sugar and a white frosting swirl.

If the descriptions alone aren’t enough to send you into a sugar rush, the trio of new flavors is available for purchase at participating Krispy Kreme locations Monday and will remain on menus through Oct. 31.

Pub burger that is Half Beyond Meat, half beef draws criticism: ‘All or nothing’

Fifty percent beef, fifty perfect fake – all controversial.

U.K.-based craft beer and pub chain BrewDog has come under fire on Twitter for its earnest attempt at bridging the food world gap between meat eaters and faux-meat eaters with its “Hybrid Burger” launch.

MCDONALD’S ANNOUNCES NEW MCCAFE SEASONAL COFFEE, AND IT’S NOT PUMPKIN-SPICED

The newest offering is made with a 50/50 patty mixture of beef burger and Beyond Meat. The patty is stacked under a potato rosti cake, crispy onion straws, melted vegan gouda cheese and sandwiched between matcha tea buns.

Much like the patty itself, the Hybrid Burger – which the restaurant touts as “50 % less meat, 100 % delicious” – has received mixed reviews, with most criticizing the burger as unnecessary.

That said, there were a number of people who admitted they would like to try the burger – or at least understood where the company was coming from with the offering.

Despite the backlash, BrewDog defended its quirky menu addition, stating it was meant to offer an option to those who are interested in meat alternatives, but do not want to completely stop eating meat.

As the demand for fake meat grows, Beyond Meat has been added to the menu of many chains across the globe.

A passenger was left fuming at Lufthansa after the airline allegedly left his suitcase on the tarmac at an airport in Munich.

Karn Rateria posted an image on Twitter of what he claims is his suitcase sitting on the tarmac while his plane prepares to take off on Sunday.

Rateria wrote in the post that he alerted the cabin crew, and was assured the loading was completed – despite that fact that he could see his luggage.

“Uhm @lufthansa you’ve left my bag on the tarmac! I told the crew and they just said loading is complete. I can SEE the bag,” the tweet read.

The airline responded to Rateria’s concerns, stating there was an “outage of the baggage system” at an airport in Frankfurt.

“There was an outage of the baggage system at the airport in Frankfurt. My colleagues are doing their best to locate the bags and send them as quick as possible,” Lufhansa tweeted.

However, the passenger pointed out that his bag was left at a Munich airport.

Fortunately, Rateria reported that he was reunited with his bag the next day, and thanked everyone for their digital support.

Woman quits job to take care of husband like a 1950’s housewife: ‘I’m living how I always wanted’

Katrina Holte is not a modern woman.

After three years of happy marriage, and getting stressed out by her job in a busy payroll department, she decided in 2018 to turn back time — and live like a 1950s housewife.

That’s when Holte, 30, transformed her Hillsboro, Oregon, home into a suburban shrine to the pre-ERA era, busying herself cleaning, making dresses using vintage patterns — and getting dinner on the table by the time her husband, Lars, 28, gets home from his job as an engineering manager.

MEGHAN MARKLE WEARS TRENCH DRESS, A FAVORITE STYLE, DURING SOUTH AFRICA TOUR

“I feel like I’m living how I always wanted to. It’s my dream life and my husband shares my vision,” she says as a vinyl Doris Day soundtrack plays in the background. “It is a lot of work. I do tons of dishes, laundry and ironing, but I love it and it’s helping to take care of my husband and that makes me really happy.”

Yes, her closet is full of “flattering” frocks she sewed herself, and the home’s decor is retro as all get-out, but it’s not “like it’s a museum,” Holte tells PA Real Life.

“When I look at everything that is happening in the world now, I feel like I belong in a nicer, more old-fashioned time,” she says. “I agree with old-fashioned values, like being a housewife, taking care of your family, nurturing the people in it and keeping your house in excellent condition, so everyone feels relaxed.”

But of course the part-time seamstress of 10 years, who sells her handmade garments online, asked for Lars’ permission before leaving the workforce.

“I spoke to my husband and told him I want to be a housewife and he said that was fine with him,” Holte says. “It was a fantastic feeling when I quit. I can do what I want to now and run my house as I want to run it. Now I’m a full-time homemaker.”

CLICK HERE FOR THE ALL-NEW FOXBUSINESS.COM

A day in the retro life

Holte’s typical day starts at 6:30 a.m., when she wakes up and lays out Lars’ clothes before preparing his breakfast and packing his lunch. After feeding herself, she does 15 minutes of “gentler” exercises from yesteryear.

“We have the idea today that we have to push our bodies to the limit, but in the 1950s, the attitude was simply that you had to take care of it,” she says. “I have a vintage slant board, which is a small wooden ramp, to do core exercises like situps. I do them for about 10 to 15 minutes a day and they keep me in shape to fit into my 1950s dresses.”

After her workout, she heads upstairs for a shower and “full face of vintage makeup,” complete with Pond’s cold cream and Revlon red lipstick, with “well-drawn eyebrows” and “traditional hot rollers to curl my hair.”

When she looks her best, it’s time to get to her chores.

“I will then spend a good hour doing the laundry, dusting and sweeping. I make sure everything is kept in its place,” she says matter-of-factly. “After lunch, when my house is tidy and smelling fresh, I will go upstairs and sew either for myself, for my customers or to try out new patterns.”

Holte starts supper around 4 p.m. to ensure everything is ready when Lars arrives home from work.

“I usually cook recipes from the era like pot roasts or chicken pies and make sure there are vegetables,” she says. “In the 1950s, housewives liked to make sure all the food groups were there.”

Pub’s ‘Nigel Night’ pulls more than 400 Nigels to ‘celebrate Nigelness’

That’s a whole lot of Nigels.

More than 400 people named Nigel gathered at the Fleece Inn pub in Worcestershire, U.K., on Sept. 28 to celebrate all things “Nigel.”

The bar’s event, which was appropriately titled “Nigel Night,” was put on by owner Nigel Smith, 56, and attended by 433 people with the same name, including one who flew over from Denver, Colo., and a 7-month-old Nigel brought by his parents, The Guardian reported.

“I’ve always felt that the name’s much maligned — people would say to me when I was young: ‘Nigel, that’s got to be a joke name, hasn’t it?’

“So it was really just [wanting] to get a few Nigels together in the same room, to share Nigel stories and celebrate our Nigelness — that was the original intention,” Smith told The Guardian.

Smith posted the event on the bar’s website and on Facebook, where it quickly went viral and attracted not only 400-plus Nigels, but about 1,000 people who came out “along for a laugh.” The pub owner came up with the idea after learning no newborns were named Nigel in 2016.

All Nigels were required to prove their Nigelness with either a license or passport, and were rewarded with a free pint and Nigel badge to wear.

“We basically registered all the Nigels into the building so we knew how many were there so we could claim at least an unofficial record if nothing else,” he told the outlet.

Despite the name’s waning numbers, Smith feels the group has done a lot to help bolster the future of Nigel – there have been about 20 babies named Nigel since 2016 – and Smith is also hopeful for more Nigellas, as well.

TLC’s ‘Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Challenge’ host Paige Davis, contestant Lindsay Hinz talk TP: ‘Bizarre’

Here comes the bride, all dressed in white … toilet paper?

TLC, home to wedding shows like “Say Yes to the Dress” and “I Want That Wedding,” has pushed the boundaries of wedding fashion couture with its newest offering: the “Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Challenge.” The channel is televising the iconic nearly 15-year-old event in a special premiering onMonday.

Host Paige Davis and contestant Lindsay Hinz sat down with Fox News to describe the complications, hacks and triumphs of creating such a unique dress — and why colored toilet paper probably shouldn’t be returning to stores anytime soon.

Hinz entered the worldwide competition, which was created by sisters Susan Bain and Laura Gawne in 2003, after learning about it in a Facebook group. As a dress designer for Broadway shows by trade, Hinz was up to the demanding design challenge, but even she admits that there were parts that threw her for a loop (or perhaps a roll).

“How am I going to make this dress tie?” Hinz said. “One of the most difficult parts is how do you fasten the dress together because you can’t use snaps or zippers.”

“So, I was taking thread and braiding it together in order to create ties to lace it,” she added. “That was one of my [hacks].”

“If I’m going to go all out, I’m going to make it myself,” Hinz said, noting that she felt using an already-made hoop skirt would be “cheating,” despite the competition allowing one to do so.

“I made a hoop skirt out of toilet paper, tape and glue,” she said. “It was definitely the most difficult part of my dress, which, you don’t even see in the end. But it created the silhouette that I wanted.”

Hinz, who was one of the 12 finalists chosen from thousands of entries in each of the two years she has entered the competition, noted that she likes a challenge and appreciated the community of people she has met.

“They’re a real family,” Davis shared.

“What a bizarre club to be in,” she added, joking.

“We do keep in contact with each other. It is a lot of fun,” Hinz confirmed. “We’re not out to get each other. We’re all rooting for each other.”

While it’s an involved process — Davis and Hinz said it can take up to a year designing and creating the dress — the women explained that the tight-knit community shares hacks.

“You can really think outside the box in terms of what constitutes as tape and glue,” Hinz said. (The rules state contestants can only use thread, tape, glue and toilet paper to create the looks.)

“One year there was a contestant who used plaster wall tape, and it’s sheer, and that’s what she used to make a veil,” said Hinz. Davis added that another contestant had used glitter tape to give a shimmery feel to the gown.

One hack that Davis, who described the entire experience as “inspiring” and “gobsmacking,” particularly enjoyed was a contestant’s innovative use of color.

“One of my favorite hacks was seeing color on the dress, and I asked the contestant, Frank, ‘How did you get that color?’ Because, first of all, you’re not allowed to dye [the toilet paper], but you can’t dye it, it would disintegrate.”

So how did the inventive designer create the look? With the helpful use of Ebay, Davis shared.

“That was vintage toilet paper,” the contestant told Davis.

However, don’t expect Davis to be stocking up on colored toilet paper if it ever makes a return to shelves.

“I don’t know, all that dye on your hoo-ha really freaks me out,” Davis said, laughing. “But maybe just for the competition.”

Catch all of the impressive designs on TLC’s premiere special Monday at 10 p.m. EST.
