It’s Always Teatime Somewhere: 11 Tea-Related Accessories

A.N. Original Jewelry Shop Tiny Silver Whimsical Teapot Necklace, $38, Etsy

I’ve never been a coffee drinker. While I love the smell of roasting beans and brewing pots, my taste buds can’t handle the bitter taste. So, I’m a tea girl through and through. I even had a tea-party birthday when I was about eight years old. Iced black tea got me through late nights studying in high school, and being introduced to chai in college was like meeting my soul mate. While coffee became the cool caffeinated beverage when the rise of Starbucks and other chains brought fancy brews to the masses, tea is entering the spotlight in the realm of fashion accessories. I just hope no one thinks that by wearing this little teapot necklace, I’m declaring myself short and stout.

New Pickup Technique: The Copy Cat!

Are you ready for this one? If you want to get someone to like you … copy him! As in say what he says, nod when he nods, smile when he smiles. Yes, that’s all it takes. A new study done with monkeys, balls, and marshmallows (yes, you read that correctly) shows that people recognize and prefer those who mimic their behavior, proving once again that humans and monkeys alike are all hardwired to be totally self-absorbed.

Anonymous Blogger To Be Revealed, Promptly Sued

If someone started a blog about you, where they posted photos and called you a “skank” and a “ho,” what would you do? Would you sue? That’s exactly what Liskula Cohen wants to do, but the blogger behind “Skanks in NYC,” which is devoted to trashing the blonde model, is anonymous. However, a Manhattan judge ruled yesterday that Google — which owns Blogger.com, the blogging platform that hosts “Skanks in NYC” — must give up the identity of the anonymous writer behind it.

Quote Of The Day: Ashton Thanks Angst, Good Looks For His Success

“I walked down, and [fashion photographer] Mario Testino was in the crowd. He’s, like, ‘Who is that boy?’ Why is he walking so angry?’ And then, that started a buzz, and then [photographer] Bruce Weber booked me on an Abercrombie & Fitch shoot the next week. So it was just sort of like I had that moment that just sort of just popped things off.”

How’s This For A Crazy “Forking” Diet?

There are a ton of weird diets out there, but here’s one we’ve never seen before (although apparently it isn’t totally new): Forking. The principle is to eat only foods that can be eaten and prepared with a fork. You’re allowed to eat what you want during the day (within reason), but when it comes to dinner, it’s forks all the way. Want some onion in your spaghetti? Too bad. How about mustard on your sandwich? Out of luck. The idea is that you don’t exclude any foods, and you satisfy your hunger at breakfast and lunch, so you don’t feel deprived. There are, however, two levels of the diet: “Strict includes fork-only for the preparation of food, whereas Gentle allows you to use a knife to prepare your food but only your fork to eat it.” So does that mean you can have a hefty steak if you cut it up into little pieces before it goes on the plate? We think the only way you’d stay sane on this clearly bogus regime is to have a very sharp spork. [SoFeminine.co.uk] Keep reading »
