Super-Long Nails—Are They Back?

Is Rihanna going to single-handedly bring back fake, acrylic, prom-style nails? Take a look at her fingers, specifically her freakishly-long nails. Not only do they have some major length, but check out the shape. Most people rock the square with rounded edges look. Not RiRi. Her nails are almost filed into a point. Very Elvira. And this isn’t the first super-long sighting. Back in March, she went long with green polish! I find it hard enough keeping my shorter-than-my-fingertips nails clean. Imagine the crap that accumulates on the underside of her claws. Grody. Do you miss long nails, or would you rather see them stay in the past where (as anyone who types on a computer most of the day knows) they kind of belong? Keep reading »

Dude Websites Observe A Megan Fox Blackout Day, But We’d Like To Issue Some Others

Next week, get ready for a day off. Well, not actually a day-off day off, but a day off from incessant coverage of Megan Fox. On August 4th, manly websites across the blogosphere will stop giving the “Transformers” starlet so much attention. Doug Sheckler from 205th.com explains, “She needs to do more to earn our undying praise and affection. For instance, she hasn’t even returned any of my calls this year asking for a date. What’s up with that?”

Seriously, Megan, what is up with that? Can you believe that in the past year alone, her face was plastered to the front of Esquire, Empire, Maxim, GQ, Entertainment Weekly and Elle? If that’s not reason enough to boycott her, check out this video at Asylum on why blogs are choosing to put stories about the toe-thumbed actress on hold. [NY Daily News]

As for the Frisky, we’re totally psyched about this media blackout movement against Fox. In fact, there are a few other “celebrities” we think are deserving of blackout days. Mark your calendars. Keep reading »

Rag & Bone Eliminates Need For “Fat Jeans” And “Skinny Jeans”

I own 14 pairs of jeans and can pretty much sort those pairs into two piles: the fat jeans and the skinny ones.

Swine Flue Made Me Do It!

Swine Flu never really lived up to its potential as a grade-A apocalyptic disaster. We send all those infected our best wishes and hope they have a speedy recovery, but we have a word or two for those of you who have contracted Swine Flu Madness. This condition differs from the flu in that its symptoms are mental (in every sense of the word) and manifest in several ways. Oh yes, Swine Flu is the new Twinkies defense. When some of the strangest incidents to come across our desks in a long time all linked back to the piggy fever, we figured it was time for a roundup for all the strange things Swine Flu is apparently responsible for. After the jump. read about the weird and wacky incidents attributed to the Swine Flu. Keep reading »

Female Red Wine Drinkers Are Horny!

Looks like stores that carry red wine should stock up on condoms, too! An Italian study found that women who sipped vino rouge scored higher on the Female Sexual Function Index than those whose drink of choice was white wine or, well, anything else. Scientists don’t know why this is true, but some think it could be because red wine contains antioxidants that widen blood vessels, thus increasing blood flow to those special areas. Hm, we hope guys don’t use this knowledge to their advantage.

15 Things That Are Bad For Men

Another day, another thing that’s “bad for women.” This time it’s emo vampires. Slate’s Grady Hendrix writes:

America’s young women [are] receiving troubling misinformation about the male of the species from “Twilight.” These women are going to be shocked when the sensitive, emotionally available, poetry-writing boys of their dreams expect a bit more from a sleepover than dew-eyed gazes and chaste hugs.

Whatever. Why is there always so much hand-wringing over the pop culture influences that are supposedly awful for women? What about men? I can think of plenty of pop culture trends that could be just as harmless to them. Here are 15 to start… Keep reading »

Alcone’s Lip Stamp Promises A Perfect Pout

I never realized how difficult it is to apply lipstick. I mean, our Simcha applies a perfect pout in ruby red, no less, several times a day. But if you’re someone that needs a little lip(stick) service or really likes beauty gadgets, then Alcone’s Lip Stamp is for you. The kit comes with the stamp tool and five cards with 10 different lip shapes. All you have to do is choose the right lip shape, smear your favorite lipstick on the stamp, and stamp away. I can’t imagine any woman wanting to add another step to her beauty routine, but think of the fun you’d have sealing every phone bill envelope with a kiss. [$24.95, Alcone Company] Keep reading »

Wedding Debt Can Last Longer Than Marriage

If you have an extravagant wedding, you might be in debt longer than your marriage lasts. According to a U.K. financial management company, couples borrow an average of $42,000 to pay for their wedding. This can take 16 years to pay off with interest and everything, and the average marriage supposedly lasts 11.5 years! So, when it’s time for you to get divorced, you might end up divvying up debt, rather than assets. If you’re engaged, take the advice of our recently married Wendy and make your wedding more about memories than money. [Marie Claire U.K.] Keep reading »
