Wine Glass Sponges: Functional Or Frivolous?

The downside to having friends over is cleaning up after the party's over, especially if, like us, your home lacks a dishwasher. While you could use paper and plastic and toss everything at the end of the night, that's not so great for the environment -- and not as nice as real plates and glasses.

Carrie Bradshaw Wears Stilettos In The Sand

Check out the poster for "Sex and the City 2," which hits theaters May 27. Carrie Bradshaw is truly a marvel. Not only is she able to walk across sand in heels without sinking (or rolling an ankle), but she doesn't seem to sweat in the Abu Dhabi heat either!

The Gentlewoman Tells The Stories Of Successful Women (And Their Compromises)

This weekend, I finally got my hands on a copy of The Gentlewoman, the new UK-based women's style magazine from the company behind Fantastic Man.

Do Your Pets Have A Hard Time With Breakups?

A friend of mine broke up with her live-in boyfriend last week, and while she's doing fine, her cat isn't. Ever since my friend's boyfriend moved out of the apartment they shared, her cat has been acting up. The feline has been relieving himself on the ex's side of the bed every change it gets,…

Are You A Fan Of Anklets?

While flipping through the April issue of Elle, we learned that anklets and anklet heels are big right now. Lanvin (above left), Stuart Weitzman, and even Nine West incorporated anklets into shoes this spring, and dainty anklets got some attention in the magazine, too. The last time we considered wearing an anklet was probably back…

New “Sex And The City 2″ Trailer Looks Less Than Boring

Even if you feel like "Sex and the City" should call it quits already, the people behind the show and movies sure know how to cause a spectacle. We saw the teaser for the second movie back in December, but it didn't reveal much in the way of plot lines and we were like, whatever.
