Um, LaToya, Overdressed Much?

LaToya Jackson went to meet her mom for a casual Thai dinner at a not fancy in the least hole-in-the-wall last night. While Katherine wore a simple blazer and pants, LaToya must’ve tipped off the paparazzi so she could show off her dazzling evening gown and red carpet-ready full hair and makeup as she posed for the cameras! Um, whoa. [Los Angeles, 10/20/09] Keep reading »

White Wine—Not Red—Is Apparently Horrible For Your Teeth

First the bad news: Opting for white wine over red is not the answer to saving your pearly whites, says a recent study by the British Dental Association. White wine is far more acidic than its red sister, and high amounts of acid wear down tooth enamel. If you’re a regular sipper of Chardonnay, your teeth may even be susceptible to enamel loss. While this is clearly unhealthy for your chompers, it can also cause aesthetic repercussions. When the enamel wears down, your teeth become more susceptible to stains from the traditional culprits—coffee, dark beverages, food. If you’ve previously had your teeth whitened, it can also mess with your brightened color. Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Balloon Boy

If the universe were a fair place, the Balloon Boy caper would blow over by Halloween (har, har). But we all know we’re probably stuck with this kid for a while, so why not go trick-or-treating this October 31st dressed as the most famous 6-year-old on the planet, Falcon Heene? All it takes is a big flying saucer-shaped helium balloon and the twinkle of adventure in your eye! Keep reading »

Nerve Talks To Strangers (Who Reveal Far Too Much About Themselves!)

Nerve.com has a cool new feature called “Talking To Strangers,” which may be especially appealing to those of us who don’t get out enough. The feature centers around conversations about sex and dating struck up with strangers in bars. Can’t be bothered to go out for Happy Hour? No bother — just crack open a beer from the comfort of your own home and read the latest “Talking To Strangers” to get your fix. You’ll learn all kinds of personal things you probably don’t really want to know about people you’ll never meet in real life. For example, 29-year-old Lewiston once substituted a shower cap for a condom during some hot hotel sex. And 21-year-old Bauer (Really? Bauer? Lewiston? Is Nerve obsessed with former prep school students?) had sex with a Moroccan man on Spring Break once and ended up thinking she was in love with him (scandalous!). Oh, and 27-year-old Alex recently jerked off on a plane. Hmm … suddenly, I’m feeling so much better about staying in too much. [via Nerve] Keep reading »

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Layering Tricks In Geneva

These days, wearing designer duds from head to toe is frowned upon even by the most fashionable of the fashionistas. Instead, mixing high and low is the way to go. Taylor, American Marie Claire’s Style Director, is on her way to tour the Tag Heuer factory in Geneva. She layers her fancy pants from Comme des Garcons with a Zara blazer and ginormous Club Monaco scarf. If anyone can handle the harems/blazer/platforms/layering look, it’s her. Keep reading »

Whether the subject is sex, weight, or love, here are a few lines that should send you ladies running for the hills if you hear them from your dude. Feel free to add yours in the comments!

Quick Tip Of The Day: Neosporin For Zits

It might not be for everyone, but it’s worth a try to dab a bit of Neosporin on a pimple before bedtime. It’s best to use for whiteheads that have already broken the surface and possibly ruptured the skin. Because it’s an antibiotic ointment, it will help prevent infection, and might also help to minimize scarring (nobody likes an acne scar on their face). Easy, and best of all, it’s cheap.

An Affordable Work Of Art That Helps The Kids

I’m thinking about buying this beautiful piece, Burden, by Brooklyn-based artist Samantha Hahn. The original was done in concentrated ink on watercolor paper, and the matte giclee print is a brilliant reproduction. As for the subject: a woman holding a tower of chairs on her back. The description of the piece reads, “Chairs are really meant for resting in, yet she carries them — indicating a juxtaposition of roles. Sometimes it seems that we create our own burdens in life.” The 11″ x 14″ piece is only $45, and 15 percent of the gross sales go to the Kids in Need Foundation, which provides schoolchildren in need with free school supplies.
