Would You Wear: Feather Hair Extensions?

Way back in January, Julie wrote about the awesomeness of feather hair extensions. I’ve always thought they were cute, but wasn’t totally sold on them until I saw them in action at my friend Becca’s wedding. Becca’s sister was wearing a simple black bridesmaid’s dress and a few strands of striped feathers in her blond…

Truly Torturous Toe Shoes

We’re all for wearing completely unreasonable and painful shoes, but en pointe Louboutins? No. No no no. Louboutin made them to benefit the English National Ballet — they’ll be auctioned off in a charity auction. Said designer Christian Louboutin: “Isn’t the classical dancing ballet slipper the ultimate heel? The heel which makes dancers closer tha…

Ask An Esthetician: “My Hypothyroidism Is Ruining My Skin!”

Skin: Our largest organ, and also probably our biggest pain in the butt. Managing its temperamental, over-sensitive ways is pretty much a full-time gig, especially if your skin is a delicate Sensitive Sally like mine. Thankfully, we’ve got our new BFF, esthetician Jenna Kulp, to help us solve our skin woes. Jenna’s here to answer…

This Short Film Was Made On A Cell Phone

 

“Split Screen: A Love Story” is what can be done with a little bit of inspiration and a Nokia N8 mobile phone. Consider me impressed (and craving a vacation). [Buzzfeed]…

Is Olivia Wilde Really A Wild Flirt?

Olivia Wilde is a major flirt. Or at least that’s what the tabloids want us to believe. In the past six months, she has been linked to, oh, pretty much all of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors from Jake Gyllenhaal to Justin Timberlake to Ryan Gosling to Bradley Cooper. Ever since her split from Italian prince…

Anna Paquin Talks Sex Scenes, Watching Fans Fawn Over Stephen Moyer

“Maybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people. But it’s really not. When it’s a love scene with someone you actually love it’s not, ‘Can I touch him here, can I touch him there?’ You know what your boundaries are, or aren’t I suppose … There is probably something…

Emma Stone Gets Striped On The Cover Of Vanity Fair

My first thought upon seeing Emma Stone’s new cover of Vanity Fair: I need that amazing red and white stripe swimsuit. My second thought after digging deeper into the article: wow, she is so awesome. In addition to being addicted to Farmville, she also reveals that, “I’m a Type A personality who’s trying to convince…

Dear Wendy: “We Don’t Have Sex Anymore”

My boyfriend and I have been dating almost a year. We used to have sex several times a day, but over the past six months it has decreased significantly. We are in an intense graduate program, so last semester both of us were quite swamped with work and lost our libidos. After the stress of…

Stinky Summer Feet No More

Ladies, let’s admit that stinky feet can be a problem in the summer, especially since most of us haven’t mastered looking chic while wearing socks with sandals. (Never, ever.) But there is a way to keep your feet and shoes odor-free this summer. Silver Linings are thin shoe inserts infused with Agion Antimicrobial, a silver-based…

How Not To Pack For A Trip

Last week I went down to San Diego for a few days. In theory, it should have been a very simple trip to pack for: throw a couple pairs of cutoffs and a swimsuit in a duffel bag and you’re good to go. In reality, I jammed a rucksack full of roughly 200 pounds of…

“Freaky Eaters” Brings Us A Woman Who Eats 40 Ice Cream Bars A Day

 

For the most part, TLC’s “Freaky Eaters” hasn’t lived up to the bizarre bar set by the toilet paper munching woman of “My Strange Addiction.” But Sunday night’s episode (sorry, behind on my DVRing) brought us Kimberly, a 50-year-old woman who is addicted to ice cream bars. Kimberly eats about 40 a…

Russell Brand And Kristen Wiig Are The World’s Sexiest Vegetarians

For 10 years now, PETA has crowned one man and one woman as the Sexiest Vegetarians of the Year. And for their decade-iversary, the organization has chosen two of my favorite celebrities for the honor—Russell Brand and Kristen Wiig.

Here’s a handy guide to the 9 most common types of PXRs, all…

This Wrangler Jeans Ad Is All About D**k

Marketing is all about selling sex, sure. But this Wrangler ad, for their new skinnier-than-skinny jeans line, The Strangler, has a major boner. No. Really, like, it prominently features a guy’s junk. Watch and enjoy.

Forget The Headset, Lenny Kravitz Uses A Handset

Lenny Kravitz keeps it retro as always, even when it comes to his cellphone. I think giant handset attachments are the way to go. At least you know that person is on the phone. I’m tired of thinking people are having a psychotic break when they walk down the street with their headsets on. [Buzzfeed]…

Today’s Lady News: MTV & VH1 Won’t Air Kanye’s “Monster” Video

Both MTV and VH1 agreed not to air Kanye West’s music video for “Monster,” which grotesquely eroticizes dead women, despite a new disclaimer about how it isn’t meant to be “misogynist.” I am sure he will find a way to write a song about how he’s been victimized by this. [Adios Barbie]
