How Dare They Mess With Greatness?!

Hey, Life & Style? While I am usually a fan of makeunders, I really liked the “Jersey Shore” cast exactly as they were. Why did you have to “class” them up with those fancy dresses and stupid man vests? How could you deflate Snooki’s pouf? That’s just … wrong. [Just Jared]…

Breaking News! Taco Bell Will Make You Skinny!

Goddamn do I love Taco Bell’s 7 Layer Burrito. Cheese and beans and beef and sour cream and hot sauce and oh-so-much-more wrapped in a nutritionless flour tortilla … mmm mmmmmm! It has been, oh, three years since I had one of these hot pockets of deliciousness because Taco Bell, my friends, is straight-up NASTY…

Claw Your Way Down The Rabbit Hole

Every good movie deserves a proper nail polish collaboration, right? OPI fell down the rabbit hole and found inspiration in Tim Burton’s delicious-looking new film “Alice in Wonderland.” The product of their fantastical dreams turned into four different shades: Absolutely Alice, Mad as a Hatter, Off With Her Red! and Thanks So Muchness. These look…

Free Vacation To Test An Experimental Diarrhea Drug? It’s Poo-fect!

Weather report from my Blogging HQ in New Jersey: It’s 23 degrees outside but feels like six and 40-mph wind gusts are whipping around. Lovely! A tropical vacation would be sweet right about now. Even a tropical vacation where I had to sacrifice my nether regions to test an experimental diarrhea drug.

Dude-Washing: A Marketing Strategy Aimed At Guys With Small Wieners

Tony Soprano (and mobster types everywhere) made it OK for dudes to get manicures. Diddy has become the poster boy for manscaping. And now, as if we need more proof that it’s a man’s world, a handful of “creative” entrepreneurs are doing what they can to lend masculinity to some products that have traditionally bee…

How Sexy Is Your Apartment?

Sure, lots of blogs are rounding up the sexiest stories, trends, and scandals of the year — including us — but when Apartment Therapy does it, it’s a little different. Among AT’s sexiest posts of 2009, don’t miss what happens when furniture gets it on, an odd array of chic condom dispensers, the sexiest …

The Adam & Eve Clutch—Fashion’s Original Sin?

Can’t quite commit to the popular androgynous fashion trend sweeping the nation? Don’t want to wear a boy-cut without having a bit of girlish flair in there? Now you can go both ways with this Adam & Eve purse from Patricia Field. The metallic and lacquer torso clutch is half-man, half-woman—meaning you can swing both…

College Is For Boys

One of the things I love about the internet is that something that made waves, like, four years ago, can go away for a little while and then come back again, like it was brand new. Case in point — this school newspaper article from 2006, which is making the rounds on the internet again.

Could You Give Up Your Beauty Products For Home Remedies?

The challenge: substitute every single “normal” product in your beauty routine for an all-natural, possibly edible, old-fashioned beauty recipe—oh, and no makeup! One brave woman is trying to do just that, and after a week of substituting odor-eating baking soda, apple cider vinegar rinses/milk rather than shampoo/conditioner, and using lemon and apple cider vinegar a…

A Former Exotic Dancer Inspires Military Wives Through Burlesque

Years ago, I interviewed Lily Burana, a former exotic dancer who wrote a book about her “farewell tour” dancing at strip clubs across the country. Earlier this year, I interviewed her again, about her latest book, one in which she chronicles the difficulties she experienced when her Army officer husband was deployed to Iraq. Now,…

Quotable: Lindsay Lohan Threatens Us With More “Fashion”

Just when we thought Lindsay might decide to listen to her critics and give up her dream of being a celebrated fashion designer, she goes and alerts us all that she refuses to stop at those awful leggings. Guess you can’t keep a Lohan down. [Twitter-Lindsay Lohan]…

Girl Talk: Instead Of “I’ll Never,” Here’s What “I’ll Always” Do In A Relationship

Over the last year, I have spent a lot of time — both in my free time and on this site — thinking and venting about the mistakes I made and the lessons I learned from the breakup of my five-year relationship with my ex. Lots of “I’ll nevers” have come out of my mouth…

Dude Spends Christmas With Fembot Girlfriend

I always say: Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like spending the holidays with your own personal robot lover. As it turns out, I am not alone. Inventor Le Trung shared Christmas gifts, holiday foods, and festive decor with his girlfriend, Aiko, who is also a robot. Trung, who lives in Ontario, designed and built his fembot…

This Is An Ad For What Now?

Redtape shoes are for men who like their women the way they like their sodas: “served chilled” from a vending machine. [via Jezebel]…
