Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Amelia McDonell-Parry
It’s not that I’m not sympathetic; the sheer volume of perfumes on the market is astounding, so coming up with a unique, catchy name that also captures the perfume’s scent has got to be a difficult job. But some of the names given to perfumes these days are downright raunchy. Here are 11 perfumes which have overtones of musk, lavender, and perversion.
Earlier this month, Jennifer Aniston popped into a vintage lighting store in New York City and dropped $20,000 on lights for her LA mansion (meanwhile, in Real People Land, we’re debating whether or not to drop 30 bucks on a lamp from IKEA). Obviously 20K is nothing when you’re a super rich celebrity like Aniston, who earned an estimated $28 million last year. Jen’s not the only celeb flexing her buying power.

Welp, another one of our dream celebrity boyfriends is off the market, but I gotta say, I’m stoked to see “one of us” — i.e. a commoner! — has snagged him! Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the dreamy actor/director behind one of my fave movies of the last few years, “Don Jon,” is dating Tasha McCauley, a cofounder of a Silicon Valley robotics company. Um, hi, smarty pants. The two were photographed being all chummy and adorable in LA this week (you can see the photos here), the first time they’ve been spotted together since JGL confessed that he had a secret girlfriend back in September 2013. “‘I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public,” he told Howard Stern. “‘The girl that I’m with, she really doesn’t want to be a part of it and you can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny.” Oops, sorry. For what it’s worth, I think McCauley sounds rad. She speaks English, Arabic, and Spanish, and addition to founding Fellow Robots, a telepresence technology company (whatever the fuck that means), McCauley also founded the 10^9+ Foundation, which encourages students to develop technology that will positively affect the world’s population. Get it, girl. [Daily Mail UK]
I enjoy love stories like this because one of my goals in life — in addition to publishing a book, going to space, and having a baby or two — is to bed a celebrity. Preferably one whose name rhymes with Bryan Tosling. It’s a long shot, but what keeps my hope and fantasy fires stoked are the many male celebs who’ve dated or settled down with a woman who’s significantly less famous than them — or a complete commoner, like yours truly. Besides JGL, here are some other non-famous women who’ve managed to nab a star…
Oh, Gap, what pervy places your design team’s minds have gone. Lest you think I’m alone in my belief that this sweater tunic is reminiscent of a hoo-ha, the ladies at Outblush wrote, “Let’s just say that if you’re performing in the Vagina Monologues, it would serve as a monologue in and of itself. Otherwise, you will be pointed at and sniggered at by strangers all day. Especially if you have an unconscious habit of fiddling with any embellishments on your clothes.” The color of the sweater — dare I call it “p***y pink”? — isn’t helping things. [Gap] Keep reading »
