How sad are you that Polaroid is discontinuing its trademark instant film? As much as I love my digital camera, the pictures I take on it aren’t nearly as artful as they would be if I were using a Polaroid. But now I can make all of my snapshots look amazing with the Poladroid Image Maker program (currently only available for Macs, though a Windows version is in the works). Poladroid converts any photo into a Polaroid-like photo, changing the coloring and adding a white border. The makers tried to replicate the Polaroid experience as best they could, so you even have to wait for your photo to “develop” and are only able to convert 10 photos per session because Polaroid cartridges contain that number of exposures. Hooray for pretty pictures that look like they were taken in the ’70s! [Poladroid via The Modern Materialist] Keep reading »
Earlier this week, I let you in on how to be the Palin family for Halloween. Now, here’s the scoop on how to be two of pop culture’s most famous couples–Juno/Paulie Bleeker and Blair Waldorf/Chuck Bass. Yeah, we know, Chuck and Blair aren’t officially a couple, but they’ve gotten down and dirty in the past and their sexual chemistry is heating up this season. So after the jump, find costumes for these characters that you can totally re-use after Halloween. And remember, some of these items you can probably find in your own closet or your local thrift store, so spending a lot of money is unnecessary. Keep reading »
No worries, Portia, it was all part of her gift bag for doing your wifey’s daytime talk show. But Hayden was so excited about the cotton undies she flashed Ellen….and America! See, stars are just like us. They love dolphins and granny panties too! Screen grab, after the jump… [Egotastic]
New Yorker Amy Borkowsky is trying to raise $3 million so she can buy a 30-second ad during this year’s Super Bowl, which she will use to try to find a husband. “Dating is a numbers game,” she said. “I need to reach a large pool of guys.” So far she has only raised $1,121, and a spokesperson for NBC said there are fewer than eight ad spots left for the Feb. 1 game. If Borkowsky does raise the money, do you think this is a genius idea, or has the woman lost her mind? Check her fundraising progress at SuperBowlSingleGirl.com. Keep reading »
While we think sparrows may be a bit tired as a modern design motif, we don’t disparage all birds in design, especially when it comes to this adorable Victorian bird box which looks a little like a family heirloom (if your ancestors had great taste and style, that is). At $14, it’s a budget friendly piece to store your baubles and keepsakes…maybe even your favorite hand-me-down earrings from that old, stylish aunt of yours with the great taste. [$14, Patina] Keep reading »

#8 — Our Pick: Sarah Haskins AskMen’s Pick: Rob Kay
We had to make a bit of a leap with this pick, as Rob Kay is the dude who created the video game Rock Band and I could not, for the life of me, think of any female video game influencers because, duh, we, in general, don’t play video games. But we do like VIDEOS! One of our favorite web video stars is Sarah Haskins, who has her own show, “Target Women”, on Current. Every few weeks she tackles a new topic facing women with her hysterical, dead-pan, feminist perspective. Whether she’s talking about women and pooping or women and Sarah Palin, she always hits the nail on the head. Yes, we have a girl crush. And just because we have a lot of girl crushes, doesn’t mean the one we have on her isn’t extra special. Keep reading »
In middle school, when my friends and I first started wearing makeup, glitter was all the rage. We wore glitter eyeshadow, glitter bronzer, glitter lip gloss, glitter nail polish, and glitter anything else we could find.
Now that I’m older, I think glitter makeup makes me look like a grown-up who’s trying really, really hard not to age a day over 14. But I don’t need to be without sparkles — shimmer is totally allowed. Polishes like Dior’s new color Black Sequins look sophisticated, not sophomoric because the little bits of shine are teeny-tiny, whereas with glitter, they’re chunky. See, size really does matter. Check out more, after the jump… Keep reading »
We’ve seen some cuh-razy footwear on the red carpet lately — some cool, some hideous, all totally painful to wear. After the jump, eight pairs that would make our dogs bark. The pain would just be worth it for some. Keep reading »
Why, it’s Beyonce, of course. And we basically think she’s fallen off her rocker. I mean when non-celeb-types start coming up with alter-egos, they’re usually deemed insane, and if they commit some heinous crime, then “Law & Order” immortalizes them with a ripped-from-the-headlines episode. But since Bey is the extremely talented entertainer that she is, we’ll give her a pass on this one. And chalk all of this Sasha Fierce business up to marketing for her new album. Keep reading »
