Cobalt blue is one of those trends (and by “one of those trends” I mean “all trends”) that come back around every few years, but I always get particularly excited when fashion magazines start being like, “Have you heard of this really pretty color called cobalt blue?” because cobalt blue happens to be my favorite color. And luckily, this fall is yet another season of cobalt. Pair this bold blue with black, cream, khaki, and other neutrals, or play with more unexpected combinations like hot pink or deep red. However you wear it, here are 10 cobalt pieces to bring a bit of this fabulous trend into your fall wardrobe…

Okay, yeah, sure, you should probably have one or two neutral colored coats in your winter wardrobe – camel, black, navy, grey, whatever. But don’t you want something fun and colorful and bright and crazy to keep you warm sometimes too? Spending a bundle on an eye-catching red, blue, yellow, green or burgundy coat is probably not particularly practical, however, unless you’re Victoria Beckham. (If you are Victoria, let me take a moment to say HI POSH YOU’RE GREAT!) So I found some coats Posh would totally buy, and their affordable lookalikes for the rest of us. Shop on!
“There’s more to life than books, you know, but not much more.” Ah, the immortal words of my beloved Morrissey – they served as a kind of mantra for me as I stumbled and bumbled through adolescence and early adulthood. Books have been a vital part of my everyday existence for far longer than Moz, though (WHAT?! I KNOW!), serving as my nearest, dearest cultural companion for as long as I can remember.
Books especially saved my ass when I was young (as a super-shy, introspective only child, I got accustomed to spending a lot of time alone). Books swooped me away from my loneliness. They became one of my first Easy Escape Routes of Choice — later I’d add alcohol and men to the mix. (Fortunately, books are socially sanctioned escape routes that I never had to feel lame or ashamed about engaging in night after night — no hangovers! No awkward “Will he or won’t he call?” bullshit!)
Do you have books you turn to again and again, ones you rely on in times of fear, or anxiety, or depression? I do. So I thought I’d lay ‘em out for you here — some of the books I turn to as “medicine” for various precarious emotional states. Enjoy, and add your own picks in the comments. Keep reading »

Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. On a chilly fall day, who doesn’t love cuddling up with a book, blanket, and some fresh popped corn? Simple microwave popcorn is for amateurs. Take your popcorn to the next level with these spicy, salty and sweet popcorn recipes!
Tonight/tomorrow morning, we set the clocks back an hour which means shorter days and colder temps have arrived. One piece of good news: you are absolutely justified in spending some of your hard-earned cash on a new pair or pairs of booties for the season. I decree it. I found seven pairs of stupidly expensive designer booties and their lower-priced lookalikes just for you. You’re welcome.
If our collective dating experience has taught us anything, it’s that sexual compatibility is key to a long-lasting relationship. And sexual compatibility requires both mental and physical attraction. (Yes, that sometimes includes but is not limited to penis size.) If at any point in a relationship one of these is missing, it is a disastrous dealbreaker…
Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka and their twins, Gideon and Harper, already won Halloween with their costume earlier in the week, but Neil didn’t lie when he said they were really bringing it on actual Halloween day. You guys get all the extra credit! Also, adopt me, please!

I think we can all agree that when you’re ass-deep in online dating process, the one and only thing that would make you feel better about this digging-through-profiles farce that has become your love life would be to meet an actual, human person you’re attracted to IN REAL LIFE. I’m not saying you should delete your profile — just that it might be nice to throw real-life dating prospect into the mix every now and then. Chicken soup for the single soul. So, where does the man who goes by the handle Tacos4Two go when he’s not “surfing in South America” or “curling up with his iPad”? Where might you find NetflixLdy when she’s not “watching live-streaming wildlife documentaries”? I mean, she must leave the house every now and again. Keep reading »
