What Trend Did You Discover?

When I was in college, I started doing this innovative thing with my clothes: I wore dresses over jeans. It was not cool. It was so not cool that one of my coworkers at the college paper wrote in my bio, “Julie started the dresses over jeans trend–AND WE WISH SHE WOULD STOP.” But then! Lo, some three years later, EVERYBODY was wearing dresses over jeans. Marc Jacobs was putting dresses over jeans down the frigging runway. We now have an entire confusing category of clothing–the dress/shirt or shirt/dress–created from this trend. I feel vindicated: I was ahead of the curve on the dress/jeans combo. Maybe I even invented it (probably not).

Coca-Cola’s Crammer Keeper App Makes Studying As Simple As Singing A Tune

Students these days have it so easy. Laptops and tablets have virtually eliminated the need for notebooks and textbooks. The internet has made sitting in a classroom unnecessary. And now Coca-Cola has created the Crammer Keeper app that makes retaining course material easy. Ever noticed how you can remember the lyrics to the #1 song or an oldies hit, but have a difficult time remembering your school or work notes? Well the new Crammer Keeper is a free app that lets you turn your notes into a catchy tune, so you can remember them in a fun way. All you have to do is input your notes, select your preferred voice, choose a music genre (hip hop, rock, pop, etc.), and then download the song. You can even share it with friends, classmates, or colleagues. I’m not in school, but I’m thinking the Crammer Keeper will help me remember names and blogs of colleagues, instead of only remembering their Twitter handles. Keep reading »

My Two Cents: I Resolve To Stop Renting!

Before the horns blew and the ball dropped, my friends went around the table sharing their resolutions for the New Year. More sex. Lose weight. Save money. Be a better person. Stop dating deadbeats.

One of those was mine. The other I shared with my boyfriend the next morning. “2011 is going to be a good year for us,” he kept repeating in that positive tone people mysteriously possess on January 1 of every year. “What do you want to accomplish?”

“I want to own something,” I told him. That simple. No word sounds sexier to me than equity. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: LiQWD Hair Products

My hair has become quite dry since I’ve switched to an extra-strength dandruff shampoo, so I’ve been on the hunt for hair products that would restore my hair’s moisture after I used the dandruff shampoo. Since my locs are more “three-dimensional,” if you will, than the average non-kinky or fine hair, I’ve found that most hydrating shampoos and conditioners don’t work because they only coat my hair. So I tried the LiQWD Hydrating Shampoo, LiQWDITY Intensive Hair Repair, and LiQWD Professional Smoothing Catalyst expecting it to have the same results as other hair products I’ve tried.
