Roz Savage Is Rowing Solo Across The Pacific Ocean

Roz Savage not only has the best name in the world. This 33-year-old chickadee is also a bad-ass rower. After being bored to tears at an office job, she decided to leave it all behind in 2000, and head out on a mission to row across the Atlantic Ocean. Now that she’s completed that, she is on a voyage to become the first woman to cross the Pacific Ocean solo. She’s been on her journey for 99 days now, and is writing blog posts as she makes pit stops at RozSavage.com. (That’s her passing Diamond Head in Honolulu, Hawaii, above.) Other than that, it’s just her, the seagulls, and her oars.

Roz’s mission has got me thinking—if you left your job and, uh, money weren’t an issue, what would you do? I think I’d start a gourmet ice cream cart in Central Park. Keep reading »

Pill Popping To Get Pretty

Everyone knows that prescription pills are available to anyone looking for them, if you know how to search online. Not that it’s a legal means—but abusing prescription painkillers isn’t all that lawful to begin with. A year or two ago, we all heard about people buying the no-joke acne medicine, Accutane, online—without a prescription or monthly blood tests to monitor your liver health—and drug abuse took a whole new turn into beauty-land. Now, The Daily Mail is reporting internet pill abuse has hit an all new, um, high, and it’s all in the name of beauty. The fight to be skinnier, prettier and clearer-skinned knows no bounds, apparently. We all know buying anything off the internet or eBay comes with a certain level of danger—you always wonder, is it the real deal? But buying MD Skincare peel pads is way different than purchasing something you actually ingest—right? Keep reading »

Learn Something Everyday And Enjoy It!

Usually reserved for sappy greeting cards or inspirational mass emails, the saying “learn something new everyday” had lost its glowing appeal for me. But a new site is making the truism hip again. You’d better believe I’ll be visiting Learn Something Everyday for an adorably illustrated daily lesson. This week alone, I learned that Thomas Edison, inventor of the light bulb, was afraid of the dark, that reading about yawning will make you yawn (hey, I just yawned writing the word!), that Picasso’s first word was “piz” (a shortened version of the word “pencil” in Spanish), and that words containing the letter “K” have been proven to make us laugh more than words without. Holy krap … that’s krazy kool! Can anyone say, “Future trivia champ?” [Learn Something Everyday] Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Trish McEvoy’s Lip Primer

I’d never heard of lip primer before I saw Trish McEvoy’s sleek black tube of the stuff. Face primer? Yes. Eyelid primer? Of course. But never lip primer. Naturally, we assumed it had to be some sort of miraculous well-kept secret and became rather inquisitive. Curious enough, in fact, to waste $22 on what turned out to be essentially glorified chapstick in a good-looking vessel. Keep reading »

Punky Brewster Is Back And Ready To Attack


Holy mackanole! Yesterday, Soleil Moon Frye, aka Punky Brewster, reached one million followers on Twitter. To celebrate, she decided to dress up like Punky— complete with pigtails and mismatched sneakers—as a thank you. “I thought, why not pull out Punky Brewster because so many of us grew up together,” she says. “I’ve got Punky Power!” Aww, adorable. Evidently, Demi Moore directed this video. I know I’m feeling kind of inspired to rock a bandanna around my knee tomorrow. Keep reading »
