Mirrors are a great way to make a room seem bigger or add visual interest to your space. Mirrors with ornate frames can hold their own next to framed art and photos, and I love how unexpected they look mixed in with non-reflective decorations. Another great way to utilize a gorgeous mirror? Lay it down on your dresser or vanity and stack your prettiest jewelry and perfume bottles on it–suddenly your bedroom will feel like an old school boudoir. We scoured Etsy and found 8 mirrors in a variety of gorgeous vintage frames — all for 50 bucks or less. Click through to check ‘em out…
We’re all for heart prints and red ruffles, but we can definitely appreciate the more cynical side of love. If you’re in a darker mood this Valentine’s Day, check out these six irreverent accessories that are decidedly anti-love…
Sometimes all an outfit needs to ramp up the sex appeal is a pair of great sheer tights or hosiery. Highlight your incredible gams with one of the lacy, sexy or sheer pairs we’ve found.
I’m going to put aside being annoyed with Beyonce and Jay-Z for releasing photos of their daughter Blue Ivy after the work week has ended because bloggers never sleep. Because look at that face. Blue Ivy Carter is gorgeous. I love the fact that Jay and Beyonce did not sell photos of their newborn child, that they released them personally via a small Tumblr blog, thanking the public for respecting their privacy “during this beautiful time in our lives.” I love that Blue Ivy is simply swaddled in a blanket, not adorned with some ridiculous headband, and, in the rest of the photos that you’ll see as you click through, just basking in the love of her parents. Blue, in my opinion, looks just like Beyonce, but her eyes are all Jay. Maybe I’m hormonal, but I’m getting a little teary writing this. Yay, babies!
The best part of Valentine’s Day when I was a kid was getting all those themed Valentine’s from my classmates. That, and going buck wild with all that candy. OK, so now I know better than to pour an entire carton Sweet Tarts down my throat. But I am still into the cards. I would be honored to receive one of these “Golden Girls” cards to say thank you for being a friend … or more than that. Click through to see my favorite themed V-Day cards this season. My homemade mailbox is sitting on my desk. And it’s still empty. Hint, hint.
Not only is February the most barren time of year for decent movies, but it’s when the studios pull out their big guns and aim for our hearts like Cupid with a bazooka and dollar signs in his little cherub eyes. There’s always room for guilty popcorn and Twizzler pleasures, but if you’re craving something a little more complex — Truffles with sea salt! Dutch liquors that taste of delicate cakes and roses! A Bea Arthur from Big Gay Ice Cream! — I’ve got some treats for you.
It’s time for another installment of Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha, in which we document the most troubling examples of mini dresses gone wild. Click through to see this week’s roundup of high hems and clenched thighs, and remember: if you spot a chocha moment while shopping online or flipping through a magazine, send it to email@example.com and I’ll include it in an upcoming post! And now, without further ado, it’s chocha time…
Am I the only person out there who thinks that semi-opaque black tights are worlds sexier than bare legs? I know, it’s weird, but the sheer fact of hosiery is sexy in and of itself. Black tights are slimming, warm for the cooler seasons, and can pull any look together in a matter of seconds. Admittedly, they can get a little boring. I should know — I sport black tights almost daily, with no signs of ever stopping. It seems that celebs like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and Selena Gomez have found the perfect solution to black tights doldrums, and it’s certainly a step up in sexy. Suspender tights are the newest gotta-have-’em garment, opaque to the thigh then sheer with a garter-like detail. I’m loving the look, but I don’t know if my thick thighs are up to the task … but hey, Rihanna represents thick-thighed girls everywhere, and she looks damn good in them. What’s your opinion? If you must have a pair, click on — I’ll point you in the right direction. As for me, I’m not buying them online right now, except for the part where I totally am, whatever.

Yes, dating and relationships can be hard, but just be glad you’re not a porcupine. Or a dolphin. Or any of the other animals we’ve found with strange and somewhat disturbing mating rituals. At least your boyfriend doesn’t DIE when he has sex with you, like the honey bee, or try to insert his penis into your abdomen, like the bed bug. Click through to read all about it. Keep reading »
