Looking for a psychologically unhealthy way to lose weight? Think berating yourself will make you eat less? Fishs Eddy Worrisome Pattern plate does the trick for you. Its rim is lined with less than tactful reminders that you really shouldn’t eat that last slice of pizza. “Do you really need that second helping?” “It’s hard to be around you when you eat like this.” “For the love of god stop eating.” Fun! It’s like if you had a psychologically abusive parent, and then you moved out, and then the parent was brought back into your life through dinnerware! One supposes it might make you less likely to enjoy that extra serving of mac and cheese, but perhaps the bad feelings it brings would only make you want to eat more later. If you’re into that sort of thing, though, there’s a side plate to match. If you eat everything on it, the message on the bottom reads: “Big mistake.” [Via Riley Dog] Keep reading »
We love it when things come back from childhood with grown-up makeovers. Take these classy perfumed-scented bubbles by the perfume house Maison Francis Kurkdjian, a creative French company known for making rad fragrance installations in cities around the world. The bulles come in three colors and scents: an aqua formula smells of “cold mint,” the light green is cut herbs, and the yellow is a fruity pear. So maybe while you’re blowing your refined bubbles, you’ll trigger your scent memory as well, and take a trip down memory lane. [$18, Neiman Marcus] Keep reading »

With a talented mix of both seasoned and fresh competitors, one thing is certain—they are all hungry for the gold. Here is your guide to America’s leading ladies in all things sport and snow.

Every week, the editors over at GuySpeak give advice to women’s questions in guy style. Then they handpick some of their favorites and send them over to us here to answer (read: fix) them in girl style. This week, what do you do with a gay boyfriend who acts more like an actual boyfriend?
He says he’s gay, but he likes to rub my thighs from time to time. So is he really gay or using being gay as a front to feel me up?

Happy Hump Day! It’s blind item time, this one courtesy of Blind Gossip:
Which actress isn’t really such a sweetheart? She recently shredded a pile of clothes her off-again boyfriend had left at her house and sent him a box filled with the scraps.
This one has Reese Witherspoon written all over it. Though I suppose it could also be Taylor Swift, who recently broke up with Taylor Lautner, or Anna Lynne McCord (that chick from “90210″ who is always on/off with Kellan Lutz, from “Twilight”). But, I mean, it’s obviously Reese. Not that this rumor is necessarily true, of course. Keep reading »
Poor Jennifer Aniston. Though I’m firmly on Team Angie (I’m sorry, but I can’t suffer through any more of your crappy rom-coms, Jen), I do feel kinda bad about the following: In scrutinizing her Golden Globes dress, a couple of press members have observed that major thigh-baring gowns are an Angelina Jolie red carpet staple, and Aniston has clearly copied her!
“Chalk it up to monkey-see, monkey do, imitation being the sincerest form of flattery or a subtle message from Jen to Angie that ‘anything you can do I can do better.’”
Oh crikey. Can’t a girl just wear a dang dress? To add insult to sartorial injury, others have not-so-subtly called her fat. [New York Daily News ]
