Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Um, weird. A new study shows that women who use Tamoxifen, a drug mean to prevent estrogen-sensitive cancers like breast cancer, for more than five years are four times more likely to develop a non-estrogen-sensitive tumor in their other breast. The new tumors, although uncommon, are more difficult to treat. Scary, but docs are quick to question the study, which only examined women’s chances of developing cancer in their second breast. Some said it could just be a “statistical fluke” and pointed out that none of the women who took Tamoxifen for one to four years developed a new tumor. Others are worried that the results of this study could make patients scared to take the drug, which has been proven effective in keeping cancer from recurring or spreading. Eek.

Callie Rogers won a £1.9 million lottery jackpot at the tender age of 16. Now, six years later, she’s attempted suicide twice, has moved back in with her mom, and is working three jobs to survive. The 22-year-old believes that winning the lottery ruined her life. “My life is a shambles,” she said. “[Winning the lottery] brought me nothing but unhappiness. It’s ruined my life. I’ve just wanted to make people happy by spending money on them. But it hasn’t made me happy. It just made me anxious that people are only after me for my money.” [Daily Mail]

Uniqlo has been trying hard to keep up with the Topshops and H&Ms of the world lately by announcing new initiatives and designer collaborations. Yet, the Japanese retailer seems to be lacking in direction—last week’s debut of its Jil Sander collection didn’t quite live up to fab collab standards. Now Uniqlo has just announced that they’ve teamed up with Walt Disney to release a line of Disney-themed products next month.
A watch really isn’t a practical necessity in our high-tech world because we’re usually carrying around at least one time-telling gadget. But for some women, a watch is the boldest accessory she’ll ever wear. Then, the watch becomes a fashion necessity (because no outfit should be without at least one attention-grabber). Show off your wrist with one or several of these bold watches.
Um, no this is not Rihanna, but these are the insane studded pair of stunners she’s all about in the new “Run This Town” video by Jay-Z and featuring Kanye West.

“Chelsea Lately” host Chelsea Handler just broke it off with her longterm boyfriend, Ted Harbert. The thing is, this dude is also the CEO of Comcast, which makes him Chelsea’s direct supervisor.

“Barbie” and “makeup” aren’t words grown women use in the same sentence, but I’ll start by gushing over these cute Barbie Loves Stila eye makeup pots. The shimmery colors—Little Black Dress (a sexy charcoal), Cobalt Clutch (a bright royal blue) and Purple Pumps (violet like an orchid)—look just like grown-up versions of the ones found on Barbie’s eyes. And $20 seems like a bargain for Stila eye makeup that can be worn brightly, as an attention-grabbing liner or sexily as a muted eyeshadow. [Stila] Keep reading »
