After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

Sometimes all you need to make a t-shirt and jeans fancy is a sparkly ring, especially one in the shape of a flower. I saw these rings and was like, “Sigh, I bet they are out of my price range” but ACTUALLY they are only $25! Dope sauce. [Carolee via Coveiter] … READ MORE »

Curtis Sittenfeld’s Prep is one of my favorite books that is kinda, sorta in the “chick lit” genre. But that’s only one of the reasons why I am so on-the-edge-of-my-damn seat over her upcoming novel American Wife (due out in September) — the book is being so closely guarded by Random House that only a… READ MORE »

Normally Kirsten Dunst gets on my last nerve, but I am loving this outfit. Softing shorty-short-shorts with a Paul Bunyon-esque plaid shirt and low wedges is a smooth move. There are three version of her look after the jump, for every size bank account, but you can also add additional accessorites, like a white tote… READ MORE »

Oh man, there are lots of realllllllly emotional, pathetic, wimpy songs written by guys out there. I would offer commentary on their sappiness, but it is just not necessary. Thought of a song I missed? Put the lyrics in the comments! And get out your Kleenex — you’ll laugh so hard at these boys crying… READ MORE »

I love makeover shows, but they piss me off when the person they’re “making over” already HAS style, whether that style is in vogue or not. For example, last night i caught an episode of How Do I Look?, one of the more annoying makeover shows simply because of host Finola Hughes. Her… READ MORE »

I have a bit of a foot problem.
