I recently crossed something off my bucket list. At 29-almost-30, I finally learned how to surf.

There’s nothing more traumatizing then a big, dirty Hollywood breakup and the mudslinging that follows. Example: Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo. The sudden breakup, the canceled birthday party, the boat drama, the mental breakdown. But could all of this mess have been prevented by some good relationship advice? No, I’m not talking about a… READ MORE »

Seems like Karl Lagerfeld has been lightening up recently which is nice, because, really dude, why so serious? Now the K-man’s image is getting a makeover in the form of a 10-inch collectible. Designed by Tokidoki, Mini Karl comes all Manga’d-out, but still retains his signature style: black suit, tie, sunglasses, fingerless gloves. (Although, that… READ MORE »

I may be the only woman in America who guffaws out loud at those Tampax commercials with Mother Nature. You know, the one where the lady who sounds so much like my WASPy mom shows up with your “monthly gift” right before you’re about to have sex? Affection aside, it’s highly entertaining to watch… READ MORE »

Finally, a person-of-note’s death that doesn’t make us teary. Charles Manson follower Susan Atkins, who was denied parole earlier this month, has died in jail from brain cancer. Atkins was a teen runaway when she met Manson and became a key member of his cult. One night in August 1969, Manson sent her and several… READ MORE »

Thank God for Esquire though, a publication that actually gives its readers advice we can second. In an article posted online yesterday called “How ToREAD MORE »

I worked at a coffee shop in college. Sometimes I would throw in a free cookie to go along with a cup o’ joe for my favorite customers and they would return the favor by tipping extra.
