It’s a good day for thigh-obsessed Londoners. Why? Because their beloved cellulite-busting panties are finally back in stores. Scala Bio Fir Anti-Cellulite knickers, which sold out completely within 24 hours when they first reached stores in May, have now exclusively returned to John Lewis, a British chain store. The “miracle” undies promise to help wearers lose inches on their tummies, thighs and hips via mysterious bio crystals that warm up with wear and melt fat off the body. Besides the thousands of Brits who have gone mad for it, celebs like Sienna Miller are also reputed fans. In an interview, John Lewis’s lingerie buyer, Helen Spencer, explained that the store is prepping for round two of buying madness over the undies. “This product has created a real phenomenon among women, with customers buying up to 10 pairs each.” Either they really do work, or it’s simply a case of massive amounts of wishful thinking.

I think we should stop sleeping together.
This is hard for me, because we’ve known each other forever. I want you to know how special your relationship has been to me: going to London and Prague together, moving into our first apartment, nursing me through that awful sinus infection. There will always be a soft spot for you in my heart. But I’m moving in with my boyfriend at the end of the month and there isn’t room for you in my life anymore.
I’m sorry, Gregory, but I’ve been an adult woman for a while now and it’s time I stopped sleeping with a teddy bear. Keep reading »
Today, CNN.com posted an article called “43 Weird Things Said in Job Interviews.” I couldn’t believe some of the items on the list. One person answered the question, “Why did you leave your last job?” with the response, “I have a problem with authority.” And when asked if he/she had any questions, another person asked, “If I get an offer, how long do I have before I have to take the drug test?” Since all of the interviews I’ve gone on have been pretty straight-forward, I asked my friends if they’ve ever had any job interview mishaps. Below are their surprising responses. Keep reading »

Few things are more entertaining than bad date stories. Who wants to hear about hearts and flowers when flatulence and festering sores are so much more fun? Which is why when my friend Sal wanted to share what she assured me were horror stories about her recent attempts at online dating, I was ecstatic – joke material!
As I slid onto the bar stool next to her, I noticed she looked a little down. I immediately felt guilty about my initial excitement. Hmm. “What happened?” I asked.
“Nothing really,” she shrugged. It seems she’d met up with two different men and both were just meh. “I had nothing in common with either,” she complained.
“And?” I inquired.
She shot me a look. “And what?” she answered. “They were both really boring.”

I enjoy perusing the Alloy catalog, but I often find that I’m a tad too … let’s say … mature for the clothes. I don’t think my belly button should make an appearance unless I’m sunbathing, and my life isn’t as happy-go-lucky as the models try to project. But I was pleasantly surprised by Alloy’s autumn offerings because they’re not only appropriate for teens and twenty-somethings, but also thirty-somethings. I’m loving the military details, blouse shapes, and full skirts. Take a peek at the super-affordable garments after the jump. Keep reading »
