Cupcake vodka comes in four delicious flavors, including original, vanilla frosting, chocolate devil’s food, and lemon chiffon.

Celebs! They’re just as sized obsessed as us! But they’ve got a team of stylists, editors and handlers to make them feel good. And they’ve got a media industry complicit in helping them combat body and size issues. On “The Today Show” earlier this week, More magazine editor Lesley Jane Seymour revealed the sad truth about how the celeb style machine really works. “When we go to shoots it’s all about the ego,” Seymour says. “If a celebrity says she’s a size 8 and we know she’s not, we cut the sizes out because we know she won’t put it on if it says it’s a 10.” So that’s how they do it!
But vanity sizing, and size-related tips and tricks aren’t just for celebs. Keep reading »

I believe this “Should you bring it up?” flow chart offers some sound advice. There are appropriate times and inappropriate times for that serious convo with your S.O. Hint: not when you’re drunk or tired. Those tend to turn into arguments. I’m a big fan of serious talks over breakfast … after the coffee has hit your bloodstream, of course.

“I guess you could call [my views on sex and relationships] conservative. I think there is a lost art to being a woman. … I have this romantic part to my nature and maybe that’s why I find it difficult when I see this kind of vulgar approach to women today. I think there’s too much homage being paid to pole dancers, let’s put it that way. I mean I’m all for body beautiful but my God there’s a head attached. Can we use that too? Come on girls!”
— ’60s bombshell Raquel Welch might have been an international sex symbol, but she is actually quite horrified at what she sees as over-sexualization of women today. After the jump, Raquel gives PopEater a piece of her mind about Brazilian bikini waxes and why the ’60s feminist movement was “uncharitable” — i.e. dismissive — towards her. Keep reading »
It’s been over 30 years, but I still remember the day Jenny Talbot caught me staring at her boobs.
Jenny and I sat next to each other in a couple of classes. We weren’t exactly friends, but friendly; she helped me in math, I helped her in social studies. One day, Jenny and I were working together on a project, our desks and bodies facing. Though she usually wore sweaters, this spring day she wore just a V-neck T-shirt. When she bent over, I could see her breasts encased in her white, frilly bra. I was not quite 14, and in a near constant state of arousal; the sight of a bra strap was, frequently, enough to produce an erection. With Jenny distracted by her work, I had a free close-up view of the kind I’d rarely had. So I stared. Keep reading »
