Mannequin Manicures Are All The Rage

Last night, my friend Jen, who works at Bloomingdale’s, informed me that the nail trend making waves at Fashion Week is called “Mannequin Hands.” Creepy name, right? Apparently, the look right now is all about going nude — so nude that your nail polish color matches as closely as possible to your skin tone, just like they do on store mannequins. Supposedly the look elongates the fingers and, according to Keedah at Diary of a Style Addict, “won’t clash with bold clothing and compliments subdued attire.” Personally, “Mannequin Manicures” freak me out, but maybe that’s because I think my skin color is sort of blah. Would you give the look a try? [The Style Aficionado] Keep reading »

Khloe Kardashian Considering Making A Solo Sex Tape

File this one under: WTF IS SHE THINKING? On Sunday’s “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” Khloe Kardashian teases that her Valentine’s Day present for new hubby Lamar Odum might just be a solo sex tape. “I kind of like the idea of a sexy little video,” she says. “It could be naughty. I’m thinking about making a solo sex tape, like masturbation?” Like, really? Khloe apparently wants something for Lamar to remember her by when he’s on the road, but whatever happened to a nice framed portrait and a little phone sex? Is a solo sex tape something you might make for your man? [I'm Widd Stupid] Keep reading »

Roses are red, violets are blue, this sentiment is canned and boring and smells like poo. Check out a bunch of Valentine’s Day cards that are slightly more clever.

10 Valentine’s Day Gifts To Get Yourself

gifts for self main jpg
I am very well aware that no one is buying me a Valentine’s Day gift this year—that there will be no teddy bears left on my doorstep or flowers awkwardly delivered to my office. And you know what—thank goodness. That said, there is no way that I shall be deprived of sugar rushes and sexy times this weekend. Because I’m getting Valentine’s Day gifts for myself! What? You’re your own true love and you deserve a personal party that doesn’t include pity.

Jessica Simpson Cannot Be That Good In Bed

John Mayer, I call bulls**t. In a recent interview with Playboy, the oversharing singer had this to say about his ex, Jessica Simpson:

Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me… Sexually it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm … 
Have you ever been with a girl who made you want to quit the rest of your life? Did you ever say, “I want to quit my life and just f**kin’ snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f**k you, I would start selling all my shit just to keep f**king you.”

I’m sorry, but there is NO WAY Jessica Simpson is that good in bed. Keep reading »

6 Ways To Resist Calling, Texting, Or Emailing An Ex

I don’t know much about men or dating, but I do have one thing down: staying broken up. I was recently asked by a friend, “How do you do it? How do you not call, text, or email him? Do you just not get the urge anymore, the minute things are over?” Oh, I get the urge. I just don’t give in to it. And I’m better off as a result — here are six ways I resist the desire to call, text, or email an ex.

The Kardashians’ Quick Trim Commercial Sends Me Into A Trance


I’m a little late to the party on this, potentially, but have y’all seen Kim and Khloe Kardashian’s commercial for Quick Trim, that diet supplement that supposedly helped the sisters lose weight? Check it out above. It is utterly hypnotizing. The music is so … slow jam meets soft-core porn. And their normally nasally vocal intonations are somehow seductive. Is Quick Trim responsible for that too? Keep reading »

Happy Snowpocalyptic Hump Day!

You may have heard, but the Northeast is having what some are calling a “snowpocalypse” (though I prefer “Blizzardpalooza” because it sounds more positive!) — schools are closed, employers have given workers a “snow day,” and, like, people are melting down. But not my awesome dog Lucca. She loves the snow. She also loves to catch snowballs in her mouth. See?

Seriously though, if you’re living in an area that’s been hit hard by the snow, be careful and stay warm. And if you live in a warmer climate and are drinking a margarita instead of hot cocoa, screw you. Just kidding! Keep reading »

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: John Edwards Proposes To His Mistress? And She Slept With Jeff Goldblum?

We’re mere days away from Valentine’s Day and love is in the air! And by love, I mean baby daddies! Philanderers had better start running because there are 9-irons with your names on them and the tabloids have made sure that none of you are safe. Besides the cheating, there are also a lot of bikinis in this week’s glossies. Mostly on Jennifer Aniston, thankfully. And because you only care just enough to read the covers in the grocery store line, we’ve rounded up the most important stories for you! Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Handies Versus Blowies, Part 2

You know, sometimes a gal reaches the end of her research, sits there for a moment and says to herself, “I don’t think I have enough information to fairly come to a conclusion.” That’s the way I felt after last week’s “hand jobs versus blow jobs” discussion. So, like a trooper, I went back out into the field and asked three more guys on my IM what they thought. You’re welcome. Keep reading »
