I know that you know that you are supposed to wear sunscreen, and yet, I have the sneaking suspicion that you occasionally “forget” the SPF. I am going to skip the lecture because you have already heard it and from better authorities than me. But I am going to tell you about four fun and unusual ways to get your daily dose. Keep reading »

Science has confirmed something we’ve known since middle school: Women talk more than men—about three times as much—plus we speak at a much faster rate than guys do. According to this study women spit out 20,000 words a day—that’s 13,000 more than most guys say in any given day. The reason? According to Dr. Luan Brizendine, author of The Female Brain, “Women devote more brain cells to talking than men.” She says we’re built to do this in the womb, while guys are wired differently.
Dr. Brizendine also has some other doozies for the age old Mars-versus-Venus debate. “Women have an eight-lane superhighway for processing emotion, while men have a small country road,” she says. Meanwhile, go figure, the part of the brain she calls the ‘sex processor’ is twice as big as in men as it is in women.
So do these findings mesh with the highly scientific research you’ve done in your life? Or does this sound totally right? Keep reading »

While we think some celebs, like Michelle Williams, deserve more privacy in their lives, we’re secretly a little happy the paparazzi snap them as they go about their business so we can see what they wear when they’re not walking a red carpet. Michelle Williams always looks so cute and casually put-together when she runs out for coffee, and we love how her shoes look as though she’s walked 1,000 miles in them. Want similar sneaks? Pick a pair from the 10 after the jump, then wear them every single day this summer, making sure not to avoid puddles or mud. Keep reading »
You either are or love someone who is a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fan. For me, it’s my best friend AJ who once wrote “Buffy” fan-fiction and will never live it down. But in saying you’re a Buffy fan, everyone agrees it means you love the TV show, not the 1992 movie. (Which I argue was amazing purely on the basis of Luke Perry.) Yesterday, it was announced that a second “Buffy” movie is in the works—magical words fans of the show have been waiting to hear since it ended six years ago. But they were chagrined to discover that “Buffy” scribe Joss Whedon is not at all involved in this new project. Instead, the remake will be the brainchild of Fran and Kaz Kuzui, who produced the original movie. Oh, and Sarah Michelle Gellar will not be starring in this new flick. Nor will their be any Angel, Willow, Xander, or Spike in this new slayer universe. [HollywoodReporter] Keep reading »
