The Screen Actors Guild Awards: The Debatable!

Julie and I, while in sync in our love of Joseph Gordon Levitt, kitten videos, and “Downton Abbey,” occasionally disagree on who looked good and who looked bad on the red carpet. Such was the case as we reviewed last night’s SAG Awards red carpet photos so we decided to debate them and leave the…

The Screen Actors Guild Awards: The Bad!

It wasn’t all immaculately turned out Tilda Swintons and stunning Zoe Saldanas at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. No, there were some terrible fashions, too. And though some of these actresses may have won big at the SAGs, they definitely disappointed on the style front. Click through to find out who sagged at the SAGs.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards: The Good!

10 Things I’ll Wear When I’m Braver

I saw this girl the other day. She was wearing stunningly high, bright green heels, a strapless silver jumpsuit with a huge white belt, and a fur vest. She looked amazing. I don’t know how she did it, but she looked amazing. And I thought, as I always do, I wish I could pull off

The Rules Of Conduct For A Stayover Relationship

In these modern times, hussies like us spend a lot of time at our boyfriend’s apartment/house, but do not actually live there.  (Conversely, he might be the one at your place.)  We may have a toothbrush in his bathroom, but we aren’t paying his rent. So it’s not really our place to do whatever we want. 

A…

What A Wonderful Wallet

I have a bad habit of stuffing every single receipt into my wallet until it finally explodes, George Costanza style. My current wallet already has a ripped seam and is quickly approaching the popping stage, so it’s time to find a replacement. This funky leather one from Fossil is right up my alley — bright…

How To Play The “Bridesmaids” Martin Scorcese Drinking Game

I found last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards to be terribly dull, aside from learning the rules behind Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Melissa McCarthy’s fun drinking game. So, here’s how it works: every time someone says Martin Scorcese’s name (so, you know, often), take a drink! Scorcese! Scorcese! I’m drunk! …

Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha

A little over a week ago, we introduced a new feature, Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha, in which we document egregious examples of companies trying to sell shirts as dresses, or celebrities forgoing pants, or, well, you get the picture.

Who Knew? A Test Tube Chandelier Is Surprisingly Lovely

Inspired by legendary scientist Marie Curie, designer Pani Jurek created this chandelier out of test tubes and plywood. It’s clever, yes, but it’s also surprisingly beautiful. On its own it resembles a classic crystal chandelier, but the tubes can be filled with colored liquids or even fresh-cut flowers to create totally different looks. So smart.

Beauty Test Drive: Target PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette

Looking pretty is all about light in the right places: that is the philosophy behind Pixi’s new PixiGlow-inspired line for Target.

And it’s a philosophy they’ve fulfilled more than admirably. I actually love their Fairy Face Palette so much that I’ve used it daily since December and I’m already fretting about whether I’ll…

Online Dating: I’m Not Too Picky — I Just Have Too Many Choices!

I am not afraid to admit that I have had two online dating accounts — one with Plenty Of Fish and another with OK Cupid. I have been messaged by hundreds of guys, which lead to three dates, and absolutely ZERO luck. I feel like I’m in one of those Lucky Charms commercials. Whoever my…
