Beauty IRL: All About Eyebrows

Big, full, dramatic eyebrows are a thing now. If this was 1998, Cara Delevigne’s brows would be waxed within an inch of their life. Lily Collins has brows that are as lush as her father Phil’s melodies. The Kardashian Klan’s eyebrows defy most logic, threaded to perfectly arched perfection. I’d love to see what they…

Make It Work: 5 Things I Wish I Had Known About Work

Make It Work: Handle The Interview, Don’t Let It Handle You

Like online dating and stopping to talk to people you haven’t seen since college at Urban Outfitters while shopping for underwear, job interviews are a necessary evil.

Beauty IRL: Don’t Fear The Bold Lip

I know the beauty industrial complex yells a lot about how the bright lip is the only thing you need in your arsenal, and how it makes you look instantly pulled together, gorgeous and glowy, hiding the hideous shebeast beneath with one swipe. This is the job of most beauty writing. It alternately intimidates and…

Beauty IRL: I Cut Off All My Hair (And Only Regretted It A Little Bit)

Dating Don’ts: Are You Keeping A Relationship On The Backburner?

We all have that one person who lingers. You know, that person you dated for a little while, but never really cut ties with.

Dating Don’ts: Three Tinder Strategies To Consider

Tinder is pretty basic, and at this point, everyone knows the drill. Swipe right if you like what you see, swipe left if you don’t.

Working with someone that you’re dating takes a special kind of mental and emotional fortitude, the ability to keep two parts of your life distinct, with clear boundaries.

Consider the open relationship. Maybe you’ve always felt constrained by a traditional relationship, and known that you could happily be with more than one person.

Dating Don’ts: Assorted Lessons & Observations From Watching “Dating Naked”

"Dating Naked" is a show on VH1 in which complete strangers gather at a resort somewhere tropical and mosquito-ridden and go on carefully staged dates with strangers, completely naked.

Beauty Test Drive: False Eyelashes At The Beach

We’ve already tested the Eylure line of false lashes once, in a controlled, relatively stable, indoor environment. Still, after Sophie’s Beauty Test Drive, I was inspired to give them a whirl myself.

Dating Don’ts: Is It A Booty Call Or Nah?

We've all been there. Someone you were hot and heavy with will suddenly disappear, as if wiped from this earth, only to reappear in the form of a typo-laden text message one night while you’re doing a face mask in your sweatpants.
