Since it took, like, a humorously long time to get internet set up at my new place (silly Comcast!), I’ve spent the last week and a half working from coffee shops. And here’s the thing: no matter where I went, from a tiny hipster coffee shop to a bustling midtown Starbucks, I saw the same people. Not the exact same people, obviously, but the same basic cast of characters. Who are they? Read on to find out… Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: slut shaming doesn't have a silver lining. Read More »

“I’m a reformed slut. [Using the word] is my very unsophisticated way of taking the power back. I’ve always had an issue with, ‘OK, we’ve both decided to do this. Why am I a slut and you’re the player? You didn’t get anything from me that I didn’t get from you.’”

– Pink tells Glamour magazine why she proudly refers to herself as a slut (well, currently in the 7th year of her relationship with Cary Hart, she now calls herself a “reformed slut”). She goes on to mention one unexpected guy who made an appearance in her romantic past: NSYNC’s Joey Fatone! ”He took me to Friendly’s on a date and he bought me an ice cream. Such a sweetheart. He asked my dad’s permission!” This story is bringing me a ridiculous amount of joy. Rock on, Pink. [Us Weekly]

Hot damn, Ellen and Portia are a beautiful couple, aren’t they? My favorite thing about them is that every time they’re together, they both just light up–they wear their adoration for each other on their sleeve and I really admire that. OK, enough fangirl-ing about their relationship, let’s talk about their outfits! For the “Arrested Development” premiere red carpet (side note: OH MY GOD I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING), Ellen chose a sleek gray suit while Portia vamped it up in a tight black dress and a funky pompadour. They both look stylish, happy, and confident, which is the very essence of “Well Played.” [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Guys, Meet The Shirt You Can Wear For 3 Months Without Washing Or Ironing

Guys, are you tired of washing, drying, ironing, and/or dry-cleaning your button-up shirts after only a wear or two? A new company called Wool & Prince has an exciting proposition for you: how about a shirt that doesn’t wrinkle or smell–even after 90 days of consecutive wear? It sounds too good to be true, but their extensive testing (including one of their team members wearing the shirt for 90 days straight) and enthusiastic Kickstarter following (they’ve raised more than triple their $30,000 goal in just one week) support their claims. Apparently the secret is in the fabric; Wool & Prince shirts are made with a wrinkle-resistant fine wool that absorbs moisture without retaining odor. The best part? These non-smelly shirts are also seriously stylish. Check out the Kickstarter page for more info, and to pre-order a super low-maintenance shirt of your own, if you’re so inclined. [Gizmodo]

Twelve reasons why traveling solo rules (in GIFs). Read More »

I’ve mentioned AirBnB in a few of my traveling posts, most recently the story of my roadtrip from Portland to Nashville. Ever since my boyfriend Nick and I discovered the site, which lets people rent out their homes to travelers, we rarely stay in hotels anymore. In fact, thanks to AirBnB, we’ve spent a few nights in a modern townhome in Belgium, a week in a gorgeous apartment in Rome, a night in a historic home in Kansas City, 10 days in a south London flat, two weeks in a fabulous Paris apartment, a night in a midwife’s cottage in Wyoming, and the list goes on. If you’re willing to sacrifice the mint on your pillow, there are many reasons to try AirBnB instead of a hotel on your next trip. Here are a few… Keep reading »

Behold: A Brutally Honest Graduation Announcement For Our Times

Reddit user alyak72 decided to forgo the traditional celebratory tone of most college graduation announcements and take the brutally honest route instead. I’m sure many of today’s college graduates feel the same way, but damn, those tears and the pleading for cash are a little intense. What would you do if you got this card in the mail? [Neatorama]

“People do look at it as an insult that I say I don’t listen to country music, which cracks me up. Music is a personal preference. Everyone’s free to connect and like whatever they want.”

–Natalie Maines, lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, tells Us Weekly that despite being a huge star in the genre, she doesn’t actually listen to country music anymore. “I definitely have a bad taste in my mouth about country radio,” she explained. “We did get supporters [after her anti-war comments in 2003], but as a whole, the country music industry did not support us. Award shows would laugh at our expense. It was fun to hate us.”

Maines is releasing a solo album, Mother, on May 7th, and even though the sound is reportedly much different than the twangy hits she recorded with the Dixie Chicks, I can’t wait to hear it. [Update: You're in luck, Winona! NPR is streaming the whole album online, so you can listen to it for free!] [Us Weekly]

Style Stealer: Kate Middleton’s Perfect Polka Dots

Royal couple William and Kate recently paid a visit to the UK’s Warner Bros. studio to see where the “Harry Potter” movies were filmed and play with props from the Hogwarts set. (Best. Royal. Perk. Ever.) Kate wore an adorable polka dot dress from Topshop that’s obviously sold out now, but don’t worry, I found a similar one for even cheaper than the Topshop version, plus everything else you’ll need to recreate her fabulous outfit.
