Street Style Star Of The Week: Jennifer Hudson

You know how a new haircut can inspire you to overhaul your entire look? I’m thinking that’s what happened with Jennifer Hudson and her sassy, spiky pixie cut. She’s always been drop dead gorgeous — no matter her size or hairstyle — but once she lopped off her long hair, her outfits got a little more edgy and exciting, too. Jennifer can definitely pull of high-fashion looks on the red carpet, but her street style seamlessly blends classic menswear with fierce, feminine pieces (hello, sky-high stiletto booties!). The J.Hud twist? She almost always throws in something sporty — a satin varsity jacket, drapey jersey tank top, etc, and she loves to play with a color palette of gray and black.

7 Philosophical Questions We Have About The Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk Shot

Dominique Ansel, creator of the beloved/maligned/notorious/famous croissant-donut hybrid, the cronut, will officially debut his newest creation this weekend at SXSW in Austin, and it’s a doozy: the chocolate chip cookie milk shot. What is it? Exactly what it sounds like: a sweet, crispy shot glass made of a chocolate chip cookie, filled with cold milk. This new dessert brings up many questions, some practical, some philosophical. Here are 7 of them: Keep reading »

If I asked you, “What is something that instantly makes you happy, no matter how terrible you’re feeling?”, what would you say? A baby’s smile? Ryan Gosling’s torso? I would say catchy ’80s songs and banjos. Bluegrass band The Cleverlys has combined these two happy-making things into one amazing cover of The Bangles’ “Walk Like An Egyptian,” which I have had on repeat all morning. Way better than a baby’s smile, if you ask me. [YouTube]

Mirror, Mirror: The Weight Loss Lies We Tell Ourselves

I blinked a couple times in disbelief, jiggling the sliding weight marker on the old school scale in the corner of the YMCA. An inch to the right or left, and it would clank down, but the weight it was balanced on couldn’t be right, could it? If I was doing the math correctly, I’d lost 13 pounds since the last time I weighed myself, two months ago.

I hadn’t been trying to lose weight, exactly. I had tried more consciously to lose a few pounds last year, getting up at 5:30 every morning to work out for an hour, but I hadn’t changed my diet much, so, to my disappointment and frustration, the scale never budged. A few months ago I decided to ditch the goal of weight loss and just start eating intuitively. I still exercised because it made me feel good, but I didn’t go crazy about it.

And now here I was, staring at proof that I was shedding pounds, and I wasn’t sure how to feel about it. I was surprised, happy, but more confused than anything: how could I have lost more than 10 pounds without really noticing? And why didn’t it feel like a more momentous occasion? Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: NARS Final Cut Satin Lip Pencil

I know it’s not the most mature makeup pursuit, but I’ve been searching for the perfect soft pink lipstick since I was, oh, 15. It needed to have a creamy texture, a tone that would look fabulous with a tan but wouldn’t wash me out in winter, and the color had to be perfect: not frosted and cheap looking, but still bright and fun. After trying out NARS’ new Villa Lante satin lip pencil from the Final Cut collection, I might have finally found it… Keep reading »

Ali Larter Style Stealer

Do you guys have an item of clothing that you gave away years ago that haunts you to this day? Mine is a denim pencil skirt.

Thanks, I Made It Myself: 7 Stylish Puff Paint Projects That Won’t Give You ’90s Flashbacks

For most children of the ’80s and ’90s, puff paint brings to mind baggy, hot pink sweatshirts emblazoned with lumpy puff paint designs that you’d peel off when you were bored in choir.

Disney Princesses Realize They Don't Need A Man
Why Does Every Princess Need To Have A Prince?

I think every feminist who grew up loving “The Little Mermaid” has that moment when it hits you: Ariel literally gave up her voice for a man. Then you start thinking about the gender dynamics in all your other favorite childhood movies, and pretty soon your Disney obsession has crashed down around you, a pile of misogynist, racist rubble where Cinderella’s gleaming castle used to be. This video asks a simple question: what if Disney princesses realized everything they gave up to snag their princes, and decided to be their own heroes instead? [YouTube]
