This Weekend I … Asked Joseph Gordon-Levitt Out On A Date!

This weekend I watched “60 Seconds with Joseph Gordon-Levitt” on Cinemax On Demand (watch it, after the jump) and learned something great — his Twitter handle. In fairness, a simple Google search would have given me the same info, but I like to think the TV was giving me a sign. A sign that I should ask him out on a date via the awesome power of Twitter. So I did. His reply is still pending. Stay tuned! Keep reading »

Nightmare Journal Makes Your Bad Dreams History

The always lovely Kingdom of Style points to Sarah Jane’s Nightmare Snatchers, a series of furry journals for logging bad dreams in hopes of a better night’s sleep. “The world can be a scary place,” RISD grad and designer Jane writes, “full of nightly noises, menacing monsters, and dreadful dreams. But not every monster wants to scare and terrify. With the help of a magical spell and an appetite for troubles, a monster can be your dearest friend.” Keep the Nightmare Snatcher diary by your bed, and when you wake up from a nightmare, read the spell at the beginning of the journal, write down your bad dream on its pages, and the monster Snatcher will eat your nightmares as a midnight snack. The one-eyed Hugmitten is my favorite. [Kingdom of Style] Keep reading »

Cougars, Pumas, And TWITS: Which Ridiculous Female Stereotype Are You?!

If cougars are women over the age of 40 who “prey” upon younger men, and pumas are women just like them, but a tad younger, than what the heck is a TWIT? According to Australia’s Herald Sun, TWIT stands for Teenage Women In Their Thirties.

Just like men with Peter Pan-syndrome who are not ready to grow up, TWITs are putting serious relationships and parenthood on hold, instead choosing to continue partying and enjoying the freedoms they discovered in their teens.

So, in other words, TWITs are just like pumas, only they’re all about having fun and, like, partying over landing a younger man. Why, why, why so many nicknames for women and the lifestyle choices they make that are not so crazy different from men? [News.com.au] Keep reading »

Beauty Spotlight: Dr. Miracle’s Goodbye Acne System

If you’re like some of us, the only way to get bone straight, silky hair is via an hour long cream relaxer process. For ages, brands like Dark & Lovely and Organic have been popular for their healthy, easy to use relaxers, but now they’ve got competition: Dr. Miracle’s. Since launching a few years back the company, created by a husband and wife team, has surged in popularity. But today I’ve just discovered that Dr. Miracles signature “Feel It” formula, which tingles and refreshes the scalp, can also be experienced in an acne care line. It’s called My Goodbye Acne System and comes with an exfoliating skin cleanser, regenerating toner and a repairing mositurizer. If you’re skeptical about a hair line debuting an acne treatment system, well, we don’t blame you. Then again, it worked for Garnier. Plus, the product has already gotten a hugest stamp of approval from the fashion and beauty industry’s leading publication, Women’s Wear Daily when it won breakout beauty product of the year. I don’t know how I’ve managed without it. Log on here or visit your local Walgreens to buy it. Keep reading »

Artist Manages To Make Chocolate Unappetizing

Artist Stephen J Shanabrook’s work may be the best diet out there. He molds yummy things like chocolate and cotton candy into such unappetizing sculptures we shudder when we think about putting these “treats” in our mouths. Shanabrook sculpts chocolate into body parts, like ugly ears and fat fingers. He also makes chocolate scars and weird, unidentifable holes. He puts all of these creations in morgue boxes and sells ‘em. He’s gone as far as to make chocolates that look like a sucide bombers’ remains. But he doesn’t stop there. During a recent performance exhibit in Switzerland, the artist covered his face and the surrounding area in red cotton candy. It kind of looked like he’d gotten shot in the face and was bleeding everywhere. If Shanabrook really wants to make bank he should compile a bunch of photos of his creations and turn them into a big, fat diet book. [EatMeDaily.com] Keep reading »

Get Scarlett Johansson’s Sexy-Sleek Look

For the ceremony announcing her as the new face of Mango, Scarlett Johansson rocked a super sleek style that had a bit of a sexy edge. Scarlett paired a flutter sleeve satin top with a waist cinching black skirt- both from Mango. She completed the look with a funky pair of snakeskin shoes, gold bangles, and a large ring on her index finger. This ensemble perfectly complemented Scarlett’s incredible figure so keeping the accessories to a minimum was definitely a wise move- it would have just been overkill otherwise. This outfit is the perfect day-to-night look and is classy, chic, and subtly sexy. Check out my SLIDESHOW to get the look! Keep reading »

Annie Leibovitz Gets Sued

Last summer, photography mastermind Annie Leibovitz was strapped for cash, so she took out a $24 million loan from a finance company called Art Capital Group. Supposedly, for collateral on the loan, she used all her photos and her homes Manhattan and Upstate New York. Well, Art Capital Group is claiming that Annie is in breach of contract, and filed a lawsuit this week demanding that Annie let appraisers into her homes so they can estimate the value and start selling everything off. Meanwhile, Annie says this is BS. [NY Times]

So can this company really sell all her photos? That seems kind of wrong. You shoot gorgeous Vanity Fair covers, and you get no respect. Keep reading »
