Sexy Or Stupid?: Laurel Nakadate Photo Exhibit

Photographer and artist Laurel Nakadate is showcasing a pretty strange set of pictures in her new “Fever Dreams at the Crystal Motel” exhibition.

The demise of the magazine industry continues. VIBE magazine has folded.

The Frisky TV: What Are These Beauty Products For?

From my dad to my boyfriend, I definitely wouldn’t expect them to be able to use most of the beauty products I own, let alone understand my fashion choices. Knowing that the beauty measures women sometimes take often look like medieval torture to men, I decided to ask a few guys on the…

Here’s Looking at You Webcam

After having studied abroad and living far away from my Texas based family most of the year, skyping has become as crucial as a cellphone or computer for me. Webcams sadly, have their downfalls. Chatting with my boyfriend is hard enough knowing I run the risk of him getting distracted by Terminator 3 on TV…

In rain or shine, economic ups or downs…people will hit the bars. The question is where can you find a bar that doesn’t exactly have set prices? Well apparently, the Dow Jones Bar.

Belle d’ blo Headband Street Style Q & A

Personally, I am a huge fan of headbands. I love them in all colors and all sizes, especially the large, unnecessarily flamboyant ones.

The Drunkorexic Diet

How’s this for a scary trend? Apparently some college-aged women follow what’s being called a “drunkorexic” diet that involves binge drinking and then offsetting those calories by not eating.

Howl At The Moon!

We all had one. A kid in our junior high school class who wore a wolf T-shirt, I mean. That kid was ahead of the curve, as the wolf T is suddenly oh-so ironically in. The craze started when a T-shirt, with three wolves illustrated on it, went up for sale on Amazon and inspired…
