Engagement Photos Based On The Animated Movie “Up”

Did you see the Disney-Pixar movie “Up”? We did. It made us cry. A lot. While the film’s super sad, it’s such a beautiful love story that we’re not completely surprised one couple based their engagement photos on the tale of Carl and Ellie, complete with loads of balloons and a grape soda bottle cap pin. Adorable. [The Wedding Chicks via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Clover Necklaces: The Next Big “Sex And The City”-Inspired Trend

Sex and the City” has launched scores of fashion trends, from nameplate necklaces to ginormous flower pins, and the second movie, out May 27, will likely cause the same frenzy among women who want to be Carrie Bradshaw. The movie’s costume designer, Patricia Field, told MarieClaire.com she thinks clover leaf necklaces, which Carrie wears in the new film, could become the next SATC-inspired craze. Pat’s selling a variation of the necklace at her store, but click through for some less ostentatious options. Keep reading »

Gilt Groupe Expands Home Selection

If you’ve outgrown thrift store couches and dollar store home decor but don’t want to pay full price for fancy furnishings, today’s your lucky day. Gilt Groupe, the wonderfully addictive shopping site, is expanding its Gilt Home offerings to 15 sales per week from more than 200 brands, including Cuisinart, Ligne Roset, and Missoni Home. Prices will be low — up to 70 percent off retail — but since everything, from furniture to art, is for sale, you’ll probably end up spending more than you would on a trip to Ikea. For those of us who don’t have room for another armchair, smaller accessories and gourmet food are for sale, too, and I can attest that this stuff makes for great gifts — my mom got a set of candles from Gilt for Mother’s Day.

Tried & True: Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

Even though I’ve mostly outgrown breakouts (finally!), I still get the occasional gift from the acne fairy. When this happens, there’s only one thing to do: Bring out the big guns, in the form of Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion. While this spot treatment can’t exactly be used during the day, due to it going on pink and all, if you dip a Q-tip into the little bottle, making sure to get some of the sediment from the bottom, and dab the stuff onto your whitehead before bed, the blemish will become smaller and less painful overnight. Seriously, I’ve had King Kong-sized monstrosities practically dissolve (or at least become less noticeable) while I was dreaming the night away. And even my sensitive skin can take a dose of this strange-looking potion containing calamine, salicylic acid, and other acne-fighting and irritation-soothing ingredients.

Are Sweatpants Pants?


This is my most favorite commercial since the Old Spice ad featuring Isaiah Mustafa. As three guys prepare to go out on the town, one argues that his sweatpants, which he’s paired with a blazer, are not sweats, they’re “comfortable, low-key, cool gray slacks,” to which his friend replies: “On this planet we call them sweatpants.” Way to go, Tide to Go, I willingly watched your commercial five times; it made me laugh that hard. So, what do you think? Are sweatpants pants? Even though designers like Alexander Wang make fancy versions, I’m not so sure they can be worn in place of actual slacks, even if they are stain-free.
