Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
When you think of your typical store-bought snack cake, you probably think Hostess or Entemann’s. But if you live in Philadelphia you’ll immediately think of Tastykake, a Philly-based, equally delicious local snack company. As anyone who has ever had a Butterscotch Krimpet (which is basically like a bizarre wavy-shaped piece of cake with vaguely butterscotch icing) or a Peanut Butter Kandy Kake (tiny rounds of cake coated in peanut butter and dipped in chocolate) after chowing down on a Wawa Shorti hoagie knows, Tastykakes are great–and an integral part of the city. Their freaking bakery is located right on the Philadelphia Naval Yard. So we were sad to hear that the Tastykake corporation is having financial troubles and may be going under. Lagging sales of Krimpets, Koffee Kake and Kandy Kakes mean the company is possibly looking for another buyer. We really hope that Tastykake stays alive and well–while there are a lot of great snack cakes out there, there’s nothing like eating the one you grew up with.
Fashion is once again being unfriendly to short women. According to the fashion directors at the top department stores, like Lord & Taylor and Neiman Marcus, sensible, pointed-toe flats are making a return. This might have something to do with the lower hemlines or boho fashions that are popular now, or maybe some women are simply sick of sky-high heels? But this is one trend I’m completely opposed to. Why? Well, for one thing I like having a little lift — OK, a lot of lift — from a high heel. And secondly, a short person wearing pointed-toe flats runs the risk of looking like an elf. And that’s not a good look! Of course, I have nothing personally against flat shoes. Rounded-toe or almond-toe ballet flats are chic and sensible. Pointed-toe ones, not so much. How do you feel about the return of pointed-toe flats? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
The paps snapped Eva Longoria on an apparent date with actor Kevin Connolly. And of course everyone noticed the extreme white concealer under Eva’s eyes. She’s the latest celebrity to sport this concealer blunder. In 2009, Nicole Kidman inspired a beauty post on how to get under-eye concealer right. We expect celebrities to have the best hair and makeup people, so how did Eva, Nicole, etc. get snapped with such unfortunate makeup? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
On Saturday, I went to the Salvation Army coat sale for the first time. It would have been quite an overwhelming experience if my “thrifting coach,” Patrice J. Williams of Living Fly On A Dime, hadn’t given me some pointers before we began shopping. You see, Patrice has challenged herself to purchase only thrifted, second-hand, or vintage clothing and shoes for a year. She’s four months into her challenge and knows a lot about where and how to thrift. Under her tutelage, I found seven coats and jackets and I paid less than $70 total! Keep reading »
