Me: Umm, excuse me?
Me: I’m sorry, it’s just that I couldn’t help but wonder what you’re doing… Keep reading »
A couple weeks ago, I caught the nasty cold that’s been going around. Coughing, feverish, and too tired to leave my couch, I drew the blinds and searched for comfort in the Netflix “instant watch” section. Instead I found Jersey Shore Season 2. I’d never seen the show before and thought this might be a good time to check it out and see what all the fuss is about. I ended up watching the entire season, continuously–all 13 hours of it.
I didn’t eat. I didn’t sleep. I had no interaction with any other human beings. The sun set outside my apartment sometime during episode 11, cloaking the world in darkness, and by the time the credits rolled for the season finale, I would barely recognize the person I’d become. Maybe watching one or two episodes of Jersey Shore is a fun thing to do every once in awhile, but taking in an entire season in one sitting will absolutely ruin your life. Here’s how… Keep reading »
Dear Wedge Heels,
My whole life, I’ve wanted to be three things: “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” a writer, and the kind of person who wears high heels everyday. I’ve failed mightily on the first count, done pretty well on the second, and the third, well, that’s a bit more complicated… Keep reading »
This week, Celine Dion returned to her humble replica of the Roman Colosseum to begin another few years of sold out shows and single-handedly rejuvenating the Las Vegas economy, no big deal. Let’s talk about the clothes. She’s wearing pieces from Balmain, Givenchy, and Armani Prive, among other designers, and looking through photos from this and previous shows, I realized there are quite a few style lessons to be learned from this French Canadian Diva. Click through to find out what they are…
My friend Molly has recently become obsessed with miniature pigs. She dreams of having a miniature pet pig named Penelope and walking it around town on a little pig leash. And can you blame her, really? I mean, look at this. Speaking of miniature pigs, check out this adorable vintage brooch. Pin it on a black tuxedo jacket as a quirky accent piece. Or just name it Penelope and keep it in your pocket for good luck. [$11, Etsy] Keep reading »
The Argument: Thanks to some newly acquired flesh bumps and shoulder spikes, Gaga bore a striking resemblance to a Klingon during her recent Grammy performance of “Born This Way.” If we don’t punish this blatant thievery now, it’s only a matter of time before Lady Gaga is sporting Commander Riker’s goatee beard on the cover of Vanity Fair.
The Verdict: Worf is victorious. Because Worf always wins.
I’d love to throw on a pair of top-siders and this perfectly preppy hairbow and spend the afternoon lounging on my sailboat. Next on my to-do list: procure a sailboat. [$8, Lanita] Keep reading »
One of my favorite conversation starters is to ask people for their best celebrity encounter story. Here’s mine: A few years ago Woody Harrelson came to my college on a tour to drum up publicity for his new movie about biking or hemp fuel or legalizing marijuana, or maybe all of the above. My boyfriend and I went to his lecture and snagged a free poster on the way out. Woody had already disappeared through a backdoor when my boyfriend said, “I need to get this poster autographed for my sister.” I asked him how he planned to do that. “I don’t know,” he said. “Let’s go find Woody.” Keep reading »
It’s pretty much impossible to have a bad morning when you wake up to four dead presidents smiling up at you from your coffee mug. Although the coffee probably helps too. [$10, Etsy] Keep reading »
