Last year, when I did my taxes for 2009, my accountant and I made a not-so-shocking discovery. My three biggest expenses for the year — outside of food, utilities, and rent — were 1) cabs, 2) manicures/pedicures, and 3) wine. I made a vow to cut back on cabs as one of my New Year’s resolutions, but I’m not giving up my weekly manis and pedis anytime soon. As for wine? Well, thanks to my drinking sabbatical, I’m saving a bit o’ dough — and I’m pretty sure my local wine shop is hurting for it. I don’t want to damage the economy too much, however. If I’m not going to buy wine, I could at least treat myself to something else right? My average bottle o’ vino went for $11. Here are 11 other ways I can spend that money.

Emmy Rossum Talks “Shameless” Sex Scenes

“It doesn’t make sense that the character would wear a bra and care at all about what she looks like when she’s having sex. Sex is meant to feel good, and she wants to feel good. Her life is so s**tty in so many ways. Some people use alcohol, some people use gambling–and some people use sex.”

SJP famously refused to go nude or topless for her “Sex and the City” sex scenes — Carrie Bradshaw always kept her bra on. [Vegas Magazine] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: The Children’s Place Sale

I don’t have any children, but I have a few cousins with at least three children each, who don’t want for anything. So when it comes to birthdays, I prefer to get my cousins’ children, whom I consider my niece and nephews, clothing rather than toys. I often look to The Children’s Place for affordable and stylish clothing. This store is able to translate trends and classic items so the clothes look current, but not too adult — the kids still look like kids. Although The Children’s Place’s prices are really reasonable, the sale prices are even more remarkable. Check out some of my favorite items for newborns, baby boys and girls, and big boys and girls, after the jump. Keep reading »

Since When Does Nail Polish Get Rated R?

This nail polish name makes me feel like a stranger is offering me candy to get in his van. Shudder.

The Dancing Squirrels Of Solid Law Practice

You know what gives me confidence in a law firm? A badly rendered dancing, rapping squirrel. And that’s exactly what the baby geniuses at Greenstein and Milbauer decided to use in this “1-800-Victim-2″ commercial for their law firm. Which I’ve seen approximately 977 times while watching “Maury Povich.” [YouTube] Keep reading »
