Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
So, I’m considering trying this thing I heard people do called working out. Like, regularly. Consider it an incredibly generic New Year’s resolution. Only problem is that I have basically no decent workout clothes and the ones I do own have gross sweat stains or frayed hems. If I’m going to take this whole fitness thing seriously, I gotta get my s**t together, sartorially speaking. Here are some cute, comfy, and cool workout pieces I just may blow my wad on, plus a few additional goodies that might actually make getting ripped fun.
“[After the birth of her son, Moses,] I felt like a zombie. I couldn’t access my heart. I couldn’t access my emotions. I couldn’t connect.It was terrible, it was the exact opposite of what had happened when Apple was born. With her, I was on cloud nine. I couldn’t believe it wasn’t the same. I just thought it meant I was a terrible mother and a terrible person. About four months into it, Chris [Martin of Coldplay, her husband] came to me and said, ‘Something’s wrong. Something’s wrong. ‘I kept saying, ‘No, no, I’m fine.’ But Chris identified it, and that sort of burst the bubble … I thought postpartum depression meant you were sobbing every single day and incapable of looking after a child. But there are different shades of it and depths of it, which is why I think it’s so important for women to talk about it. It was a trying time. I felt like a failure.”
– Gwyneth Paltrow opened up to Good Housekeeping about her bout with postpartum depression five years ago. Much like my own experience with depression, Gwynnie wasn’t a sobbing mess every day; instead, it just felt like the color was leeched out of her life. She’s super lucky her partner was able to identify her pain and support her recovery. I, for one, respect that she’s willing to follow in other actresses’ footsteps and talk publicly about it.

Rent the Runway, the site that literally rents out current season designer fashions, is launching a bridal dress shop next week. That means women like me, who don’t necessarily want to keep their bridal gown or spend thousands of dollars on one, will be able to rent a dress for their big day. As wedding season gets into full-swing, this is amazing news for the bride trying to plan a wedding on a budget. The groom gets to rent his tux; why shouldn’t the bride have that same opportunity?

Gwyneth Paltrow must have gotten the memo that America hates her because she’s been working overtime lately trying to seem down-to-earth, funny, and relatable. First she had a genuinely kick-ass guest appearance on “Glee”; then she confessed to being a lush; and last night on “Jimmy Fallon” she donned a hideous wig for a series of hilarious spoof music videos for a fake group called Shazzazz. Shazzazz, apparently, is an early ’90s R&B group dreamed up by Paltrow and Fallon the last time she was on his show. Last night, Shazzazz made its late-night TV debut, showcasing music videos for their songs “Let’s Do It” (above), “Do It Again,” and “We Did It.” Loving the Color Me Badd-inspired flip-up glasses, GOOP. Maybe you’re not so terrible after all. [via Just Jared] Keep reading »
