“Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, Who are you as a person? That’s the advice I would give to women: Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul. Look at how the guy treats his mother and what he says about women. How he acts with children he doesn’t know. And, more important, how does he treat you? When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good. You should never feel less than. You should never doubt yourself. You shouldn’t be in a relationship with somebody who doesn’t make you completely happy and make you feel whole. And if you’re in that relationship and you’re dating, then my advice is, don’t get married.”

Because fruit bats, it seems, have been doing it just as long as us. Very few animals engage in oral sex, but according to scientific research, fruit bats are all about blowies. During copulation the female fruit bat “lowers her head to lick the shaft or the base of the male’s penis but does not lick the glans penis which has already penetrated the vagina.” And the male bats love it so much that if the female bat gives them a little licky-licky during copulation, they’re likely to last longer. HAWT. [PLoS ONE] Keep reading »
Everybody speculated Taylor Swift would use her hosting powers to skewer Hennessy-swigging rude boy Kanye West in her “SNL” monologue and she kind of did, towards the end. But I heard myself shrieking, “Yeah, Taylor!” when she called out another jerk in Hollywood who’s done her wrong: ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas, who she says cheated. Very ballsy. I love it!

I had known Billy for five years through mutual friends, and at some point we started hanging out independently. I was still sailing on the friend boat when Billy indicated his winds were now blowing from a different direction. I wasn’t interested in him romantically then, but we did seem to get on quite well. And so ensued several months of friendly, flirty hangouts, during which I grew more and more fond of the fellow. Keep reading »
Have you ever gotten your cut or color done at a beauty school or through a salon training program? You hear such mixed things about this. If you happen to get in with a fancy salon during a hair model day, you can walk away with a magazine-worthy ‘do … or a disastrous look. Try out your local beauty school and maybe the cut is just as good but one quarter the price of what you normally pay.
Here’s a story that really made us think twice about going the student route. One woman on the blog Brokelyn posted a story about how she decided to try out a $10 haircut at her neighborhood beauty school. She brought a photo with her, which showed a basic bob. Things didn’t go well from the get-go. Keep reading »
I don’t know what’s happened to me. I used to love shopping. Next to having sex, drinking, and eating great food with friends, shopping used to rank pretty high on my list of activities that make me happy.
And no, I was never one of those girls who “bought to fill the void” or anything like that. As a fashion lover, the biggest draw of hitting the boutiques was a satisfaction of being able to change my style with something simple. I never dumped huge amounts of money on clothes, but I definitely had patterns. Maybe one nice designer purchase every three to four months; one to three smaller things per month like tops, accessories, and sometimes shoes from places like Urban or Forever 21. I rarely bought out of necessity.
Now that’s not the case … Keep reading »
