As more stories about the victims of the Boston bombings last week are revealed by the media, it is clear that each and every person is so deserving of not only our sympathies, but also our respect. Adrianne Haslet-Davis, a ballroom dance instructor, is one of those survivors — and she is fucking awesome. Haslet-Davis was watching the Boston Marathon… READ MORE »

Are you wearing your sleepwear right now? That says you’re probably fun-employed. Or freelancing. Or working from home. Or ill! You could also be ill. I am sorry if you are ill. Oh, also, you could be Hugh Hefner! That is a job. However, even if you’re the kind of person who only wears sleepwear during… READ MORE »

It’s been a rough few days for women who really love jaunty pearl accessories. Not only did Margaret Thatcher pass away, so did Lilly Pulitzer. Was Lilly Pulitzer a feminist? Yeah. Sure. Probably. Seems like it. She was certainly someone I grew up with, and these are some very specific memories brought to mind by very specific dresses. ReadREAD MORE »

There’s been a lot of discussion as of late about Sheryl Sandberg‘s bourgeois and somewhat apolitical version of feminism, Lean In. It seems like everywhere I look, the feminist discourse has been taken over by discussions of the ways in which women hold themselves back at work, how we need more women at the top, why Yahoo… READ MORE »

Facebook. How did we exist before it? How did you define ourselves, our relationships with friends and/or boyfriends? How did we let people know, on a large scale, that yes, you ate the four-day-old Chinese food, and now your head is in the toilet while you throw up everything you’ve consumed in the last 48… READ MORE »

Earlier today, Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill‘s breakup was announced. The couple have been engaged since 2010 after meeting on the set of the movie “Goon,” and have been a rather adorable couple for a while now. Despite their generally low-key style of dating so far, it seems that their breakup may be a whole other story. According to Us Weekly,… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

I am a crier. I cry when I’m happy, I cry when I’m sad, I am the kind of person who cries at sloths. I cry when other people look lonely — really, it happened just last week at a restaurant — and I cry when I am excited to see people. I cry whenever that… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

Ugh. Social media and Google have made online stalking the easiest thing in the world, but it’s also made letting someone go for good the absolute pits. It’s way too easy to get information or see photos of your ex happy in their new life. When you’re still burned by the whole relationship, it’s the… READ MORE »

Unless you’re one of the those people who actually enjoys staying friends with an ex, there’s probably a lot of things you’d really love to tell that person once the relationship is over. Whether you did the heart breaking or you’re the one who ended up having the broken heart, sometimes you just have a… READ MORE »

It’s probably a good thing that Kate Middleton announced her pregnancy yesterday, because for a few days there the trailer for the second season of “Girls” was the big talk of the town. Or at least it seemed that way for a New York minute, and New York minutes are by which all things in life are measured– if… READ MORE »

Tis the season to spend a long weekend in someone else’s childhood home, sandwiched between your boyfriend and his older sister, trying not to say anything about the uncle who you think is the person who keeps kicking you under the table.

And even though you wouldn’t be caught dead in this awkward… READ MORE »

Going to the gym or taking any sort of yoga class is a great way to stay in shape and keep healthy. This is a fact. You can’t argue this, because science has no room for arguments; science is that badass. While there are those who love to workout and actually thrive on it, there… READ MORE »
