I heart words and communication. This includes emails, text messages, Gchat, Blackberry Messenger, iChat — the works. I am a sucker for a well-crafted email or a witty text message. My motto: The way to my heart is through my brain. That’s why I thought Joe could be Mr. Perfect for me. Joe and I met one night at a work gala. I had already put away an entire bottle of wine when I almost knocked him over on the dance floor.
“Do you like to dance, beautiful girl who almost stepped on my foot?” he asked.
“Only when I’m drunk. When I’m sober, I dance like Elaine from ‘Seinfeld.’” I replied.
It was a rainy October night and Joe offered to escort me to the subway when the event ended, impressed that I could: a.) still walk and b.) do it in 3-inch heels. “Email me,” I slurred, handing him my business card, “I loooove emails.”

Sometimes inspiration comes when you’re not looking for it. In some of our random fashion browsing on the Internet, when we were looking for clothing-related posts, we found ourselves completely ignoring the goods on the page and were instead entranced by these models’ hairstyles. The styling on each is perhaps perfect—braids complimented by Grecian and knotted accessories. Here’s how to get these two innovative ‘dos… Keep reading »
What does a French-and-German-speaking, magna-cum-laude graduate from a well-respected university do when she graduates? Well, some are becoming nannies. After 15 years of being a nanny, Autumn Backman is now raking in a six figure income. Despite the fact that the average income of a nanny is $26,000 or about minimum wage, nannies for the elite make bank and lead pampered lives. From traveling on private planes, to vacationing at exclusive resorts, to dining at five-star restaurants, and receiving free BMWs or designer goodies, nannies for the wealthy to some extent get to experience the same royal treatment as their employers. Ummm, where do I sign up? Keep reading »
Remember Susan Boyle’s “makeover” well turns out this time she really did get a makeover and a brand spankin new attitude! The hard work has paid off and she will be featured on the cover of Harper Bazaar’s September issue. All this business about secret locations and designer dresses leads us to believe that its going to be quite the shoot. Check out her Today show interview after the jump. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
We hear Jean Touitou, the designer behind cult French label A.P.C., may be taking the popular multidisciplinary approach to the fashion business, but in a completely unexpected way. A few months ago, Touitou opened a school for two- to six-year-olds in Paris called Ateliers de la Petite Enfance (or A.P.E. for short). We’re just learning about the posh, artsy academy now, so it made us wonder what would happen if other fashion designers started schools…what would they teach? Keep reading »
Will Arnett ruined Judy Blume forever on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” the other night. The girl from Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret should not sound like demon at the gates of hell. Keep reading »
This week’s installment of “NYC Prep” was the first episode where it felt like we were past the character introductions, and finally into the thick of their lives. What did we find when we got there? The clan lives to achieve higher. Kelli with her singing, Taylor with dance, PC with … well, we’re not quite sure there … maybe let’s just say “coolness,” Jessi with her “career” in fashion (WTF, Miss I Can’t Even Vote Yet?), and as always, there was Camille, ever the social-climbing slut.

Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night can keep “Naked Cowboy” Robert Burck from strumming his guitar in his undies to entertain tourists in New York City. And now the Cowboy wants to show his true devotion to Manhattan—he’s running for mayor. For those of you who have not stood next to the Cowboy’s toned tush, he is a Times Square staple, clad only in tighty-whities, a cowboy hat, and boots. He plays guitar and sings while tourists snap pictures with him. He plans to officially announce his bid for mayor today, and already has plans for raising revenues and tax breaks. His campaign promise is to do “more with less” for NY residents. No problem keeping his promise either—that yummy briefs/boots uniform says it all! [Huffington Post]
Checking off “The Naked Cowboy” on a ballot may seem a bit odd, but we have yet to see what he’s got up his … hat? Hopefully, Robert will fare better than these oddball candidates who failed in their political quests. Keep reading »
