I was on the subway yesterday, when a guy sitting next to me struck up conversation. He was cute enough and nice enough. I was enjoying our conversation. Across from us, a girl started to cry. Like hysterically weeping. Subway Guy leaned over to me.
“Excuse me,” he said, cutting me off in mid-sentence.
He stood up, fished around in his pocket, and pulled out some napkins. He walked straight over to the crying girl and handed them to her. This perfectly nice stranger became a super hot man in that split second. I was drooling for the rest of our ride together. Too bad he got off the train before I could get his number. But I don’t care, he left a huge impression. After the jump, some more of the little things guys do that impress the crap out of us. Keep reading »
“If I do something stupid, which is pretty much the whole time, I hate it … Obviously, they’re only going to put the good stuff in, and the good stuff is us drunk, so all I’m seeing is me drunk and falling down. That’s how I am when I party, but some of the stuff I do is, like, ‘Really, Nicole?’ I look like a freakin’ alcoholic. I’m like, ‘You’re sweating, your makeup is running, you look gross.’ I just look like s**t .”
– Snooki in Rolling Stone on how she comes off on “Jersey Shore.” I appreciate Snooki’s brutal honesty. I think that’s what makes her such a lovable little meatball. That being said, I totally support her not getting drunk in front of the camera anymore. I think she’s better than that. Also, I happen to find her highly entertaining while sober.

Two years ago, after nearly 15 years of blow drying, flat ironing, highlighting, and dying, I was officially in a hair rut. I sat in the stylist’s chair. My hairdresser Tommy, a twentysomething, tattooed hipster was running his hands through my lackluster locks.
“I am 30 years old, ” I said, “I want rocking hair.” Keep reading »
Hello, sexy shoes! Spring is almost here and our shoe drive is through the roof. We’re coveting these Swooping Asymmetry Wedges designed by Matt Bernson. The luscious leather wedge says “sultry,” while the military -nspired canvas upper says, “I mean business.” They are comfortable to pound the pavement in and perfect to pair with skinny jeans, shorts, skirts, or sun dresses. A must-have for the woman who is serious about spring. Speaking of spring, are we there yet?
Men beware. A new study says that guys should steer clear of dating a woman who is hotter than he is because the relationship has greater odds of being doomed. Why? Well, because a more beautiful woman has all the power in the relationship. If she wants to leave your ugly ass she will, whereas a woman of equal or lesser attractiveness will make due with you (presumably even if you are annoying). But the same does not apply to for a woman dating a hotter man. No issues there according to researchers. Come on! Is this study for real? It is in some alternative universe where gorgeous women don’t marry men for their money or where underwear models like to date average chicks like me. I’d be happy to live in that world. But until then, I’ll keep living in the world where people sometimes enter into relationships because they are compatible, regardless of which partner is prettier. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
Part of my pre-spring ritual is buying a new pair of open-toed shoes for my cloistered feet and picking out my nail polish palette for my weekly pedis. I choose a few colors and alternate between them throughout the season. It helps me imagine what my feet will look like while frolicking barefoot in the park or riding bikes. Escapism at its finest. Click through to see the shades I’ve picked for spring. What are your colors this season?
You won’t see 11-year-old Supatra Sasuphan running to the razor section of her local drugstore or off to join the circus. Supatra, who suffers from Hypertrichosis, is hirsute and proud. She was just named the world’s hairiest girl in the Guinness Book of World Records. After a lifetime of being called “monkey-face” by her peers, she is “happy” to have taken the title. That’s right! Screw those kids! Her plans for the future? To become a doctor to help people. I want to give her a huge hug and make all of her dreams to come true. [The Gloss] Keep reading »
I’m walkin’ down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I’m bound, I can’t tell
But goodbye’s too good a word, gal
So I’ll just say fare thee well
