Virgo (August 23-September 22): This week, you’ll shake your fists at the sky, asking why it curses you, but in spite of that, there will still be beautiful progress. Wait for the adrenalin to kick in, as the build up will be slow to gush in like a tsunami. In the bedroom, plug into every position and expect to shock and blow out more than one fuse, because nothing and no one is going to be able to keep up with you now.

Personally, I think it’s really easy for a leather skirt to look costume-y, hooker-y, or tried-too-hard — no judgment on the first two, if that’s what you’re going for, but aren’t we all hoping to look effortless in our clothing? Anyway, one way to elevate (that’s a fashion industry word) a leather skirt is to pair it with simple unexpected items, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s striped, long-sleeve T and peep-toe booties. Love it. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
Being awkward is rough. Social skills and eye contact don’t come naturally to everyone, OK? What’s even worse is being one of those awkward girls around your crush. All normal conversations and behavior can be thrown right out the window in romantic-related situations (even if the romance is one-sided — that one side being you). The struggle is real, and we have 13 socially inept reasons to prove it. Read more on Tres Sugar…
Ever since I heard about Robin Williams’ devastating suicide, I’ve been thinking about this post and how I was going to write it. I’ve thought about it as I was drifting off to sleep. What did I want to say? How did I want to say it? Would it come out right? Would I even know what to say? What sorts of emotions would this stir?
The word suicide is even like a black hole of sorts. It’s expansive, never-ending and dark, and no matter how much you talk about it, there’s always more than can be said. Always. I wish I could say that you can’t relate, but unfortunately, I know far too many of you can. Maybe you’re even grappling with what to say and trying to find the words to comfort a family member, a friend and even yourself. It’s been 11 years since my father’s suicide, and I still fumble to find the right words every single day. So today, I will write them. Not just for my father. Not just for Robin Williams. But for me and for you — and for the millions that live with the effect of suicide every day. In my darkest days of grief, these are the five things I’ve learned about suicide… Keep reading »
Holy FACEPALM. Last night at a concert in Sydney, Australia, Kanye West stopped the music to call out a few fans who hadn’t gotten to their feet when he told the crowd to stand up during a performance of the song “The Good Life.” Only, these fans didn’t rise to their feet in defiance of Yeezy’s orders — they couldn’t because they’re wheelchair-bound.

Well, this is all sorts of fucked up. “Django Unchained” actress Daniele Watts, who is Black, claims she was “handcuffed and detained” by Los Angeles police last week, after she was approached and asked to show ID because she was kissing her husband, who is white, in public. Watts posted the following on her Facebook page:
Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place.
When the officer arrived, I was standing on the sidewalk by a tree. I was talking to my father on my cell phone. I knew that I had done nothing wrong, that I wasn’t harming anyone, so I walked away.
A few minutes later, I was still talking to my dad when 2 different police officers accosted me and forced me into handcuffs.
