Margaret Cho’s Shtick At The Golden Globes: Not Racist, Just Tired

Last night at the Golden Globe Awards, Margaret Cho played a character named Cho Yun Ja, a movie reporter from North Korea, in a misguided attempt to coast off fumes generated by the publicity machine that surrounded "The Interview"'s weird half-success. The bit was a little clunky and mostly unfunny. Margaret Cho, a woman of…

The New Trailer For “House Of Cards” Is Absolutely Insane

Finally, the season three trailer of "House of Cards" is here, and it's honestly everything that I have been waiting for: Frank Underwood looking menacing in the Oval Office! Claire and her killer tousled pixie and sharp cheekbones that could cut glass, gazing pensively out a window! A figure in a dark suit, scurrying through…

Make It Work: Update Your Resume, Please

Updating your resume is on par with doing your taxes and cleaning your bathroom — a task that is unpleasant and irritatingly time-consuming, but absolutely necessary every once in a while. Chances are, your resume hasn’t been updated since the last time you were looking for work. I should update my resume, you think to yourself. Real adults have…

Beauty IRL: Face Mists Are Fancy Bullshit And I Love Them Anyway

There is perhaps no beauty product more superfluous than face mist. Yeah, you kind of need moisturizer, and some would argue that lipstick or eyeliner is a requirement, but a bottle of water that contains mysterious “minerals” and is scented with various flowers that you spray on your face intermittently throughout the day is not…

Make It Work: How To Work From Home Without Losing Your Shit

The elusive dream of all office employees is being able to work from home. “What a privilege and a pleasure it will be!” you tell yourself, envisioning freshly sharpened pencils, crisp legal pads and steaming mugs of coffee, like a stock photo of productivity. “I will get so much done from my home office!” Reality quickly sets in.

Beauty IRL: Suggested Beauty Routines For Probable New Year’s Eve Scenarios

You don’t have to go out on New Year’s. Everyone else is going to be stumbling around the city in sequined jumpsuits, consumed with the eternal quest for the best place to put on their 2015 glasses and grin wildly for the camera, as that big ball makes its inevitable descent in Times Square, so…

Make It Work: 5 Career Resolutions For 2015

Generally speaking, New Year’s resolutions are bullshit. They’re entertaining cocktail party fodder at best, a way to talk to people you’ve just met over the cheese plate about how you’re definitely going to quit smoking/go to the gym/take up tantric meditation this year. They are a self-soothing practice, stated with the intent to make you feel like you’re actually going…

Make It Work: The Best & Worst Presents To Give At Your Office White Elephant Gift Exchange

The holiday season brings a wide swath of work-related traumas to endure: waiting for your holiday bonus, drinking too much weird tequila at your holiday party and making out with that dude from accounting, figuring out what to do when your boss gets you a present, but you’re empty-handed. But there is none as time-honored…

Beauty IRL: Get Your Nails Done

Here’s an excellent Tuesday night ritual. Pour yourself a drink, turn on all the lights in your living room and sit down to do your nails. Take as much time as you need. Dig through that shoebox full of nail polish and nail files that have lost their grit, and find a color you’re really…

Make It Work: How To Tackle The Job Search Without Losing Your Shit

Losing your job sucks. There’s no two ways around it. It’s a really shitty feeling to go into work one Wednesday, sit down at your desk, answer three emails and then be summarily dismissed. Regardless of whether you were fired or let go, it still stings. After you leave the office for the last time,…

Beauty IRL: Making The Case For The Bare Face

I realize the benefits of makeup. I acknowledge its usefulness in looking and feeling put together, pretty, and confident. If you have a zit that’s screaming for attention, the ability to slap on some concealer and go about your business is fantastic. Lipstick changes your entire appearance and makes a sweatshirt and crappy jeans that…

Make It Work: How To Quit Your Job

There comes a time in everyone’s career when you will quit your job. You will stand in your boss’s doorway, cock your head and say, “Do you have sec?” You will quietly shut the door. You will sit down in that weird chair reserved for guests and your boss’s jacket, palms sweating, and tell him…

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

Most of us enter the working world pretty ill-prepared for the harsh realities of office life. Even college isn’t much of an education in that regard; hell, arguably the most valuable thing one learns in college is how to bullshit your way through a class you didn’t do the reading for — a life skill with many…

7 Rules For The Best Friendsgiving Ever

I’ve made Thanksgiving dinner at my house for the past three years, eschewing the hell of Grand Central on Thanksgiving eve for staying quietly in my own home. I spend this blessed event with my three sisters and a ragtag group of friends who are still around. The first year was a blur, due to…

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. If you have a job, you got that job because you put on your fancy “interview pants," took a long lunch and went to an office somewhere to…

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)
