Gwen Stefani Kills It At Cannes

Oh God, I am so embarrassed. You’ve caught me drooling. I’ve been starring at this picture of Gwen Stefani at the amfAR gala at Cannes and didn’t even realize I was salivating. She looks so chic — and it’s her own design. Yep, this black halter-neck, mermaid-train gown, with gold belt detail, is from her L.A.M.B. line. Someone needs to be dressing actresses for the Oscars next year! Dang, remember when she used to wear nothing but cut-off white tank tops?

This wasn’t even the first show-stopping number Gwen wore this week in France — after the jump, two more dazzling looks. Keep reading »

In Which I Analyze Ryan Gosling’s Weird Tattoo

Sometimes love means overlooking a person’s flaws. For example, I still love Ryan Gosling even though he wore a pajama shirt to the Cannes photocall for his film “Drive.” Obviously, that’s easier to do if I put my hand over the image to block his dress pants and shoes and then imagine he is laying in bed waiting for me. Anyway, back to the business at hand — what is the deal with that forearm tattoo? There are some hearts and some letters and then there’s that pointy thing in the middle — is that a head? With an angry face and the little thing at the bottom is maybe a tongue? I am confused. Again, sometimes love means overlooking things — like tattoos that look like they were doodled in the margins of a textbook by an angry teenager. Keep reading »

Survey Says You’ll Bicker With Your S.O. 2,455 Times This Year!

Snapped at your boyfriend because he forgot to take out the trash? Argued over whether to watch “American Idol” or the Bulls game? You’re not alone — couples average 2,455 of those little spats each year. That’s according to a survey of 3,000 people conducted by home insurance company Esure, which found that couples bicker up to seven times per day about everything from household chores to how to raise the kids. The UK’s Daily Mail didn’t get into the specifics of who those 3,000 people were, but regardless, I found the results pretty surprising. I lived with my ex for four-and-a-half of the almost five years we were together and while we certainly bickered, I really don’t think we came close to averaging seven spats a day. I mean, maybe on days when we were profoundly annoyed with each other, but that wasn’t often enough to greatly skew our average. Maybe the study or participants view “bickering” as any difference in opinion or position whatsoever? What do you think? Does this survey accurately reflect how much you and current or previous significant others bickered? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Not Buying It: Sugar Daddy Dating Site’s Shoddy Photoshop

The thing that cracks me up the most about these ads for Sugar Sugar, an online dating site that matches younger women with older, weathy men, is that these are so obviously stock images of young couples. The guys’ hair has just been badly photoshopped to look grey. These dudes, to quote one blogger, look “very (very) premature gray-blue … with the skin of a 26-year-old” — likely not representative of the actual sugar daddies the site has to offer.

These Pillow Shams Are Just Dandy

It’s a bit of a girly cliche to have a ton of throw pillows everywhere, but let’s face it, they make your couch or bed look more cozily catalog-like. Plus, if you don’t have the bones to drop on a total makeover, switching up the linens and pillow covers is a great way to a give a room a subtle new look without spending a lot of dough.
