I hereby commence the first-ever meeting of the Ladies Whose Lips Are So Thin We’re Afraid Of Wearing Lipstick support group! So far, Amelia and I are the only members, but with the help of our sponsors, both of  us have been making inroads.

Part of my recovery can be attributed to the discovery of my favorite lipstick in the universe, Kate Spade’s Supercalafragilipstick. But at $24 a tube, it’s more of a special occasion lipstick. For everyday wear, I’m crushing on the much-more-broke-ass-mofo-friendly CoverGirl’s Natureluxe Gloss Balm. Keep reading »

Dating is hard enough. But what about dating when you’ve recently left an insular religious community that pretty much forbade interaction with the opposite sex?

Such is the problem faced by ex-Orthodox Jews who are “Off the Derech” (derech is Hebrew for path), or OTD, and assimilating into secular society. Hasidic communities separate boys and girls while young; girls often marry around 18 or 19, while boys tie the knot in their early 20s, having children shortly after. Touching members of the opposite sex to whom you are not related is forbidden and interaction is generally discouraged.  Is it any wonder ex-Orthodox Jews are utterly bamboozled when it comes to l’amour?

That’s where dating coach Israel Irenstein comes in. Keep reading »

“Why do people ask me to lose swear words? Do people ask Eminem to lose swear words? Do they ask Lil Wayne to lose swear words? Nobody stops them and says ‘Would you stop swearing… for the children, please?’ … I don’t want children cursing. I’m very strict on my nieces and my little brother. They have to listen to clean versions of music. Even my music. … Don’t you think it’s strange, though? I used to see Eminem in concert and people were bringing their little brother or whatever. Nobody stops them and says [she adopts a posh English accent], ‘Would you stop swearing, Eminem, for loads of money?’ I don’t get it, I don’t get it.” 

– Nicki Minaj did a great interview with the UK Guardian and talked about lots of feminist-y themes, including the scrutiny she’s put under for being a woman who sings some really “dirty” lyrics. Nicki talks about how she knows those two little girls on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” — Sophia Grace and Rosie — who rap clean versions of her songs have brought her a lot of attention, but that doesn’t make her kids’ singer. I love this woman. [Guardian UK]
