15 Of Our Favorite Themed Valentine’s Day Cards

V-Day Survival Guide
For all your Valentine's Day needs. Read More »

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.

5 Romantic Movies That Won’t Make You Retch

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.

As both a New Yorker and a bonafide Francophile, I am a madly adoring fan of the brilliant graphic designer Vahram Muratyan’s website, Paris versus New York. He compares the City of Lights to the Big Apple in a way that isn’t snarky, or biased toward one or the other — rather, they read more like romantic odes to both cities. His modern designs and prints have gained something of a following since his blog’s debut in 2010, and last week he released a 224-page book of his contrast-and-compare illustrations. If you’re a fan of Paris vs. NYC, or Paris, or NYC, or all of the above, you must get this book. It’s simple and lovely and makes me want to book a trip to La Ville-Lumière, dès que possible. Equally charming: this Blackbook interview with the artist. [$20, in Anthropologie stores and online]

It’s not easy being a 15-year-old wunderkind. Aside from the basic responsibilities of going to high school, blogger Tavi Gevinson also runs her own magazine — Rookie Mag — and covers Fashion Week. After the jump, we catch up with her as she prepares to head from her home in Chicago to New York for the festivities. One thing I love about this video: we get to hear Tavi’s sweet Midwestern-tinged accent, which makes her seem more like a normal kid and less like a teenage prodigy. [NYMag] Keep reading »
