I can’t figure out what exactly Kate Hudson is doing differently these days, but it’s working. Perhaps all that foxy British rock star lovin’ could be to thank? Whatever it is, girlfriend looks 360 degrees of sublime. Perfection! … READ MORE »

Labor Day fast approaches. Which it means it’s time for me to be depressed that I didn’t go to the beach as many times as I promised myself I would. Blah. Summer never really unfurls in the idyllic way it does in my mind. But there is one place where summer is always perfect. Stock… READ MORE »

A friend of mine received a lovely bouquet of flowers from her bosses, congratulating her on a job well done. Ally is an editor of a new travel magazine, and we think the card was supposed to read: “Congratulations on your new magazine, miss editor-in-chief. –Adam and Jake.” But that is so, so, so not… READ MORE »

This parody video brilliantly eviscerates Todd Akin, Paul Ryan, and their 171 fellow politicians who sought to redefine the legal definition of rape and mocks Akin’s assertion that women can’t get pregnant from “legitimate rape.” Be warned, there is simulated violence, sexual and otherwise.

I met Cute Train Guy en route back to New York just after Thanksgiving. (I’m nothing if not completely uncreative with my nicknames.) With the annual tradition of overcrowding and delays, Thanksgiving travel gives me major agita. So, that evening I was relieved to secure a window seat on the Amtrak train and beyond pleased when a… READ MORE »

Paul Ryan’s speech last night may have been rousing, but accurate it was not. Ryan is being lambasted today for what Sally Kohn of Fox News calls “an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech.” Here’s what the critics are saying:

The doctor has prepared me for more weight loss and losing my hair. Dating isn’t the main focus here, but it’s fresh in my mind, because I just got out of a relationship. So I’m just sitting here, thinking, ‘Wow, not only am I single, but I’m about to be four pounds and bald.’

I’m pretty far left, so full disclosure, the views expressed at the Republican National Convention are not my cup of tea. But I still watch the speeches and try to ignore the lump of depression that rises and settles in my throat every time the crowd cheers for something that stands in stark contrast to… READ MORE »

As some of you may have noticed, I’m really rather fat. I mention it only because it’s relevant — it has a significant impact on my life; people treat me differently because I am fat.

Or, in some cases, refuse to treat me. Which is what happened recently to Ida Davidson, who was turned… READ MORE »

As a card-carrying Lazy Person, I’m always in search of the best multitasking beauty products to cut a minute or two out of my routine. Some mornings I can manage a full-on primer, foundation, concealer, and powder process, but other days (like Mondays!) I can be found pleading to the makeup gods for something far… READ MORE »

As always, the precious moments on last night’s episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” were bountiful. I was still a little distracted by the discovery that June is the same age as me. It’s going to take me a while to process that. Anyhow, the Boo Boos are showing no signs of slowing down. READ MORE »

The other day, Amelia and I got to talking about this awesome DIY lampshade. “It’s like papier maché for adults,” I said, which led us into a brief discussion about how to spell “papier-mâché,” which led us into a much longer discussion about all the childhood craft projects we missed. Dreamcatchers! Decoupage! Friendship bracelets! But… READ MORE »

LeAnn Rimes, who yesterday turned 30, has checked herself into a 30-day treatment clinic to “cope with anxiety and stress.” Her reps insist that she is not being treated for an eating disorder, though Rimes’ thin physique has been the subject of much chatter over the last few years. And in odd timing, yesterday… READ MORE »

This year’s September issue of Vogue is, for lack of a better word, epic. It’s, like, 1,000 pages, 600 of them ads, and not one of which includes a beauty spread. (I mean, come on, that’s why I buy these damn magazines.) What it does include is an exhaustive history lesson in all things Vogue,… READ MORE »

The Venice Film Festival is the sleepier cousin to the Cannes Film Festival, which is why, despite the fact that we’re two days into the fest, there’s been relatively few major celebrity sitings. We don’t mind, though — it gives us the opportunity to ogle random French and Italian ladies, instead. Check out some of… READ MORE »

Sue Austin is a performance and installation artist based in the UK. She has been wheelchair-bound since 1996, and dedicated her artistic work to “finding ways to understand and represent my embodied experience as a wheelchair user.” Most recently this goal has led her to team with scientists and diving experts to create a self-propelled… READ MORE »

There is no way to discuss this in a manner that’s particularly comfortable or even couth, so I’ll start with the facts: Martha Corey-Ochoa, an 18-year-old Columbia University incoming freshman, was found dead on Monday at around 11 p.m. following a fall from her 14th-floor dormitory on Manhattan’s West 114th Street, where her parents had… READ MORE »

The conservative women’s group Susan B. Anthony List has debuted this not-intentionally-funny anti-Obama advertisement, which will air in Missouri, about the president’s support of reproductive rights. Did you know Barack Obama strangles newly-born babies with this own hands?!  … READ MORE »
