Both equally repulsive and offensive Halloween costumes, my initial knee-jerk reaction to both the human ring toss costume and sex costume would be to crotch-kick the person wearing them. Unfortunately, doing so would likely land me behind bars— an ironic twist to my “Orange Is The New Black” costume.
Instead, let’s just vote on which Halloween costume is more WTF?! Keep reading »
Something happens to Halloween when you become an adult.
The holiday is no longer a night known for trick-or-treating, sugar highs and precious children dressed up as fairy tale characters. Instead, doom and dread take over as you retire your “skanky” [insert noun here] costume, and in turn, prepare yourself to be offended by the costumes you’ll encounter outside of the safe bubble you call home.
I won’t lie. Some of the costumes you’ll witness next week, worn by actual adult humans, will be offensive— some even repulsive. To prevent you from instinctually punching/cursing/upchucking when you come in contact with one of them, we’re kicking off the festivities with a WTF?! Costume Battle. Keep reading »
Would you ever help your significant other pay for your engagement ring? Apparently it’s happening more than we know.
Last week, while falling asleep to the evening news, I overheard a report that had me bolt up from my semi-coma and stare at my TV screen in confusion. The newscasters were discussing the increasing frequency of women helping their boyfriend’s purchase engagement rings— by chipping in. Keep reading »
Let’s face it: the economy sucks. And unfortunately, not having much money can sometimes get in the way of things … including dating.
As a single gal, I’m hearing of more and more people who have opted to forgo the traditional first-date dinner at a restaurant in favor of an evening at home getting to know one another. Not only is entertaining a date in your home more comfortable for some, limiting the amount of awkward silences and giving you that in-your-element advantage, but it’s also usually easier on the wallet. Pop in a movie, grab a bottle of wine and some snacks, and voila! Keep reading »
After live tweeting through last night’s season premiere of “Nashville,” and then discussing the episode this morning around the water cooler (okay, not really … we were just at our desks), it dawned on me: every character who appeared to be doing a good deed was really doing something that would ultimately benefit them. Or, at least, that’s what we were led to believe.
Characters who were introduced to us in season one as selfish individuals were later humanized, slowly redeeming themselves through various acts of kindness and humility. But looking back, it’s hard to tell which of those acts were genuine. In last night’s premiere, several characters’ “selfless” acts seemed to be peppered with their own, personal intentions in mind.

Happy National Singles Week! In honor of the festive occasion, I’d like to discuss people who SETTLE.
I’ve always been told not to settle for anyone who’s less than perfect for me, but for some, singlehood is seemingly not an option. So many people I know have chosen to be with, and in some cases, marry, someone who is not right for them— just to avoid the possibility of not finding “the one” and growing old alone. Keep reading »
If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that relationships are tough. Even the strongest of bonds are sometimes tested, and temptation becomes a gauge of your willpower and test of your loyalty.
When faced with this situation in my own life, I’ve handled it in three different ways… Keep reading »
Perhaps I’m just hungry, but is it me or do these Fashion Week dresses look like baked goods?
I instantly thought ‘wedding cake’ when the Marchesa model (left) walked down the runway wearing a dress that seemed to be made out of ruffled icing. And then there was this Betsey Johnson number (right) … I want to eat it.
Don’t get me wrong, both are pretty. Though they’re not exactly my taste, they look like they would satisfy my taste buds. Which one do you think looks more like something you’d hoover into your pie hole during a bad bout of PMS? Click “vote” below your choice to weigh in.
Hi, my name is Katie and I’m addicted to leather. But seriously … the fact that leather is SO in this fall and that it’s coming back for more next spring, at least according to what we’re seeing on the NYFW runways, might be a serious problem for my bank account.
Despite the fact that every time I purchase something leather, I think about Ross Gellar’s’ pants on “Friends” (“The lotion and the powder have made a PASTE!”), I can’t get enough. The two looks above were seen on the catwalk this NYFW and I can’t decide which I prefer.
