Italians Rule At Romantic Graffiti

Reader Cathie-Marie came across this loving scrawl in Perugia, Italy: “It reads ‘Voglio fare con te cio’ ene la primavera con i ciliegi’ which means ‘I want to do with you what the springtime does to the cherry trees.'” Blossom? Sigh.

Have you seen graffiti that’s kind of sweet (even if it is against

Does Anyone Buy “Investment Pieces” Anymore?

A brawl has broken out in a recent post on The Cut blog: about whether or not buying cheap clothes at Forever 21 is a waste of money and a young woman should be building a collection of “investment pieces” instead.

Next thing you know, Susan was seen constantly hanging out with Jonathan Bricklin, a 31-year-old who is her fellow investor in SPiN, a ping-pong club in New York City. Now, Susa…

No Sex Allowed In Outer Space

I just assumed that the whole point of becoming an astronaut and taking the long ride out to the final frontier was for the glory of experiencing zero-gravity sex, even if those pesky space suits do seem a little restrictive.

Independence Day Inspiration Board: Betsy Ross

Even though there’s some debate over whether Betsy Ross created the first American flag, she’s the person you think of first when it comes to the stars and stripes.

Beauty Test Drive: Tarte Lip Stain

At first swipe, we had high hopes for Tarte’s Natural Lip Stain. Lust, the color we tested, had an appropriately sultry name and glided on with a practiced sort of ease, moisturizing as it went.
