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.

Target is awesome, and not just because they have cheap, cute clothes designed by normally-out-of-our-price-range big names like Jovovich-Hawk and Luella Bartley. They also rule because they don’t screw over their employees in the most evil way possible. Wal-Mart, which, frankly, has some of the worst clothing you could possible buy at a… READ MORE »

I basically lived for reading Sweet Valley High when I was in elementary school — as I previously wrote, SVH #3 Playing With Fire was the first time I read the word “breast” in print in a somewhat sexual way. I remember vividly thinking that SVH was the way high school would be like, in… READ MORE »

Not having enough room for my shoes (or my clothes or my cosmetics or my anything) in the small apartment I share with the feef* is a major source of stress in my life, because in addition to being a shopaholic, I am also moderately OCD. Thankfully, Rakku Designs has come to my rescue. They’ve… READ MORE »

Yesterday at an event in support of Hillary Clinton (who was not present) a man asked Chelsea Clinton whether she thought the Monica Lewinski scandal affected her mother’s credibility. This is how Chelsea answered. Honestly, I have mixed feelings about whether or not that whole debacle should be addressed by Hillary and/or Bill,… READ MORE »

I’ve had a case of baby fever practically since I was an infant, so the possibility of someday having children has always been a no-brainer, even more than the idea of getting married. Put me in a room with a dozen adults and one youngster, and the child will have my ear all night. When… READ MORE »

Jim Sturgess caught our eye in the awesome Beatles musical Across The Universe in which he played Jude and sang quite prettily.
