A day after the Duchess of Cambridge wore a $35 sparkly, crystal bead Zara necklace to attend the premiere of "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" to honor the late Nelson Mandela, the necklace has sold out on Zara's website.

So, while butter will go bad, it happens much more slowly than with unfermented dairy products, such as milk. Unsalted butter takes about a week to spoil, but it contains enough natural salt to slow the growth of bacteria that causes spoiling.

- Why Running Isn't Helping You Lose Weight
Doing one 45-minute run once a week or a couple 20-minute runs won't burn enough calories to lose weight. In order to lose a pound a week, you'll need to cut 500 calories each day, through a combination of diet and exercise. If losing weight is your goal, run three to four times per week and incorporate other forms of calorie-burning cardio and/or metabolism-boosting strength training on the other days.
