I love Halloween. I want to believe that everyone loves Halloween — like it’s a universal Tim Burton-style Christmas — and that we all come together, unified, for the sake of weirdness and costumes, zombies, vampires, princesses, and gore. I’m torn, though, on whether I love it enough to take Vogue’s costume suggestions. For the… READ MORE »

I’ve had unconventional fictional character crushes for about as long as I can remember. I remember being about 9 years old, snuggled into bed, forehead to forehead, with my friend Julie at a sleepover, while we talked about who we liked. She was all about Arnold Schwarzenegger, his “Kindergarten Cop” and “Terminator.” I, however, was… READ MORE »

The tween readers of AOL’s JSYK.com (for you people above the age of 15, that’s “Just So You Know”) have voted Miley Cyrus the worst celebrity influence of 2009. Why? Because of that pole-dancing stunt at the Teen Choice Awards? Or because of her reckless endangerment of Fuzzy? After the jump, let’s look at a… READ MORE »

Requirements for buying any woman a gift:
1. One size fits all. Too big is unfortunate and too small is a suicide attempt waiting to happen.
2. It must be a classic style. When you have the universal fashion nod of approval it’s unlikely your cousin Tammy will return it.
3. It still has to… READ MORE »

Girls don’t snore, right? (Wink.) But your guy probably does. For those with snoring problems, there’s a frightening new solution—an injection treatment called “snoreplasty,” which can supposedly replace surgery for those who wish to solve their severe snoring issues (or, at least, appease the women they’re torturing on a nightly basis). The shot, currently available… READ MORE »

Too lazy to brush your own hair? No worries, help — or the worst twirled knot of your life — is on the way, for $34.95 plus shipping and handling. I don’t know what’s scarier, this rotating hair brush or the fact that the crazy abusive SlapChop guy’s commercials are still airing? [Everything IsREAD MORE »


Love & Sex

Apparently there were many crazy things ladies used to do to prevent themselves from getting knocked up before condoms and the pill were available at the corner drug stores. Thanks to this Newsweek slide show, “The Evolution of Birth Control,” I learned a thing or two about how ladies used to ward off a visit… READ MORE »

It was inevitable that Madonna’s eldest, Lourdes Ciccone Leon, would be a style icon by the time she became a teenager. Well, now we know what’s in the closet of the 13-year-old celebuspawn, thanks to the tell-tale red soles of Christian Louboutin shoes, which tend to retail at about $600 per pair. Here, Lourdes was… READ MORE »

The best address in America has always played host to the cutest and brightest puppets, and now like a grand socialite giving her 40th birthday celebration, the show has created a simply amazing guest list for the upcoming season. Set your DVRs, volunteer to babysit, or call out sick and stay home to watch kids’ READ MORE »

I am 24 and have been married for about 2 1/2 years. Since getting married, we have visited my husband’s parents, who live about 45 minutes away, at least once a week, including practically every weekend. My husband and I both work full time and weekends are really the only downtime that we have together. READ MORE »

My first encounter with bird skull jewelry came a few weeks ago at a motorcycle/clothing/coffee (I know, weird combo) shop in the West Village. The ring was sterling silver and the bird skull cast was the perfect length for my finger, but the ring itself was too big. Much to my dismay, the smallest size… READ MORE »
