Trailer Park: “The Mechanic,” “Kaboom,” “From Prada To Nada”

I'm not gonna lie to you guys—this week's movie offerings are slender. But maybe that's a good thing since you probably need time to catch up on all the Oscar contenders anyway. Still—if you like hitmen, exorcisms, college hookups, or shopping malls, you might find something to your taste arriving in theaters this weekend. The…

Marriage Is Great For Your Health — So Long As It’s A Good One

I Wanna Dance With This Guy

You know what always puts a smile on my face? Someone dancing like nobody is watching. Like this older gentleman (and his lady dance partner) totally getting down to a live band performing "I Wanna Dance With Somebody." I love that he's actually acting out all of the lyrics. Oh! And the way he just…

Woo Hoo! H&M Online Shopping Is Coming Soon

I have a weakness for H&M. But going to the store can be pure hell between the crowds, the thumping music, and the epic fitting room lines. So I've always been annoyed that the retailer hasn't offered online shopping for U.S. costumers—I mean, they have it in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland, Norway, Sweden, and…

The 15-year-old Georgia native was inspired to sing by her cousin Holly, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor three years ago. (Heartbreaking story alert!)

12 Reasons Why Women Don’t Listen To Men

Psychologist Robert Leahy made a list of reasons why men don't listen to women. Sure maybe he's not listening to us because he want us to be rational rather than emotional, but it's pretty likely that at that point, we're not listening to him either. While this list is an interesting look at why communicatio…

Don’t Eat Your Food, “Whaf” It

Eating was so 21st Century. Forget about eating, "whaffing" is the way we'll be consuming food in future. A real life Willy Wonka, Professor David Edwards, has invented a new way to eat ... by inhalation. The Le Whaf, which looks like a cross between a bong and fishbowl, allows you to cut calories without…

The Real Divorces Of The “Real Housewives”

I was going to write a post this morning about "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" Reunion Special that aired last night. But honestly, I can't donate any more brain space to those women and their inane fighting. (Exception: I love Adrienne Maloof, even if she is apparently friendly with Charlie Sheen.) And so, I…

Girl Talk: I’m A Feminist, But I Think I Want To Date A More Traditional Dude

One of the defining tensions in my life has always been reconciling my feminist political beliefs, my desire for a respectful and egalitarian relationship, and my attraction to more traditional alpha males. I passionately believe in women's equality, in reproductive rights, and in equal pay for equal work. And I want to be in a…

Don’t Tell Cookie Monster There Will Be Only 6 Kinds Of Girl Scout Cookies This Year

Unlike most of the girls I knew, I wasn't that into being a Brownie. I thought the uniform was ugly (really, of all the colors in the world—brown?) and didn't want to learn how to crochet in order to get a weird patch to sew onto a sash (really, sashes?). But there was one part…

Money 101: Do Good With Charitable Donations – And Get Deductions, Too!

The onslaught of tax return documents starting arriving in my mailbox a few weeks ago -- from banks and places of employment (I had a few last year) -- and I began to feel the familiar and perennial angst; tax day is coming! I stuck most of them in a pile to be looked at…
