Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. 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.

Style

So to preface this post, I want to make sure to convey that a woman’s style (or man’s style for that matter) or lack there of, should never be a topic covered by political pundits.

He’s Barack Obama’s “body man”, his personal aide who shadows him on the campaign trail, plays basketball with him every primary day (he was once a star on Duke University’s basketball team), and has the inside info on what the… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

We totally love cheesy, awesome, dancey R&B songs, especially when we listen closely to the lyrics and crack up. Usher’s “Love In This Club” provided much joy with the line, “I want to bag you like some groceries,” but it’s time to call attention to some other poetic words of love and lust from R&B… READ MORE »
