Lululemon sometimes designs some questionable things (example: see-through pants) but this idea is pure genius. They have come up with the solution to the second most asked workout related question: “Where do I put all of my stuff?” And their solution is not a fanny pack. According to Racked, Lululemon have designed the “Stuff Your… READ MORE »

Fascinatingly, there are many people out there who do not understand the concept of clothing. According to the Webster Dictionary, clothing is defined as “garments in general.” You put on clothes in order to clothe yourself, as is customary in polite society. And yet, there are always lists of items “fat girls can’t wear” (I… READ MORE »

It’s been a big year for Kate Moss, she turned 40, did a tastefully artistic Playboy spread, increased her financial worth to a whooping $92 million, and now has had a champagne glass molded from her breast. Which is obviously the next logical step for a supermodel of Moss’s caliber, and is not weird at… READ MORE »

It doesn’t matter how bad someone’s makeup is, you should never say one of these eye roll-inducing lines. They are as annoying as telling people what’s wrong with their eyebrows. Someone with crooked eyeliner may not have realized that there are tips to correct shaky hands. Or maybe they haven’t figure out how to contour their faces properly a… READ MORE »

Adults of the world have got to learn that if they can’t look at a small child and smile at its adorable innocence, they should just butt the hell out completely. A small child’s appearance is in no way the business of strange adults, whether one is talking about Blue Ivy‘s hair sparking an Internet petition… READ MORE »

After last week’s wild episode (no spoilers, no worries!), I can’t stop thinking about the upcoming “Game of Thrones” season four finale. Who’s going to die? Who’s going to bang? Who’s going to have to contend with Arya Stark’s steel blade and equally stone cold one-liners? Will Jon Snow ever really know anything? Anyway, in order to… READ MORE »

Two of the best things about summer are as follows:

Getting to sit at the beach or park while reading an awesome new book.
Getting to show off your fun, beautiful tattoos that have been hiding all winter like you’re Dolly Parton.

I myself have tattoos from stories by two out of the three… READ MORE »

Fashion mogul Diane von Furstenberg told NYMag.com’s The Cut that women over a certain age should not go sans shirt. The site asked what she thought about Instagram’s policy on female nudity, which has been debated heavily lately after Scout Willis went topless in New York to protest the app’s banning of female breasts.

I am a mother of sons. I do not have any daughters. I recognize that it is a cultural norm to pierce women’s ears, especially young girls as infants. If I had a daughter, you better believe I would carry her right into Claire’s Boutique and pop a few shiny gold studs into her baby ears. I’ve… READ MORE »

The Self Evident Truths Project is an ambitious undertaking to photograph portraits of 10,000 people who identify as being anywhere on the LGBTQI spectrum, or anyone who isn’t “100% straight.” According to the project’s creator iO Tillett Wright, the point of the project is to “humanize a vast community” through these portraits, with the ultimate goal being to print… READ MORE »

A new product called Neotensil is being heralded as a game changer in the fight against aging, so much so that it’s being compared to “Spanx for your face.” Jennifer Aniston is apparently heavily involved, and I will basically do anything to my body that she tells me to do, so that seems like a smart choice.

Abercrombie & Fitch’s awful financials make me optimistic about the future. For a long time they were a dominant force in the teen market, but Abercrombie & Fitch’s legacy of discrimination and elitism has made it basically untouchable to today’s cool kids.

How do you spot a liar if their pants are not on fire?

No one likes being lied to. Wouldn’t it be excellent to be able to just smell a lie as it comes out of someone’s lying mouth? Yes, if you’re kind of paranoid and think everyone is lying to you.

If you follow my whinier posts, you may already know that I went through a breakup a little while ago. I allotted myself a week or so of ruining my eyeliner via cry seshes, listening to empowering music, and falling asleep next to a bottle of $9 white wine.

Let me be straight with you guys: I’m a bit of a truther when it comes to celebrities. I assume most things they do are PR stunts because I am cynical and don’t trust famous people.
