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.

Girl Talk: Welcome To Heartbreak

In the past three days, I have been suddenly and unexpectedly broken up with by my boyfriend of almost two years and asked to move out of the apartment that we have shared for a year and a half. The past few days have been horrible and sad, but mostly filled with dread about the uncertainty of the future. It feels like a nightmare that I am going to wake up from; a few times I’ve asked myself if I lost my mind a la “Black Swan” and this reality isn’t real. This morning I stood in line at Starbucks and pulled back the pinky finger on my hand, bent it so far until it hurt. Okay, I thought, I must be awake and alive. This must actually be my life. I don’t know how it is that I have put on pants every day, brushed my teeth, written emails, written blogs posts, done my laundry, and eaten food. My heart feels so bad I can’t believe I’m not glued to my bedsheets. Maybe I’m just in so much disbelief that I am numb. Keep reading »

Four Loko Now Goes In Gas Tanks

Oh Four Loko, you worthy alco-pop opponent. We had some good times, but those days are over — and now a company in Virginia is turning recalled cans of the super-caffeinated, super-alcoholic beverage into ethanol. MXI Environmental Services distills the alcohol from the drinks and then sells it to be blended into gasoline (isn’t it troubling that we’re drinking stuff that also goes in gas tanks?). The plant expects a couple hundred trucks–carrying several thousands of cans of the beverage–to start rolling in soon. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Nerd Girl Porn: Retro Hotties

I cannot resist a man in thick-rimmed glasses and a fedora— which is precisely why I am so frickin’ excited to see the new Broadway show “Million Dollar Quartet,” based on the Sun Record Studios collab between Elvis, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash. Yes, those hotties are going to rock my town night after night! Like this stud above, Lee Rocker. You might recognize him from the rad rockabilly band The Stray Cats. He’ll be playing Carl Perkins’ bassist bro, Jay Perkins. He joins the cast January 21st, and I’ll be there because, clearly, his sexy addition is worth the price of admission! So, if you’re like me — a sucker for cats with slick-backed hair, tailored suits, and bad rock ‘n’ roll attitudes — then keep on clickin’ through this slideshow of retro hunks who make me wanna party like it’s 1959…

Jake Gyllenhaal Rides The Subway Just Like Regular Folk

Not to get all New York-y on you guys, but Jake Gyllenhaal has been spending a lot of time in my fair city lately, particularly in Brooklyn where his sister Maggie lives. And just today he was spotted taking the subway into the city! The subway. I love that the guy sitting on the seat next to him so does not give a s**t. He’s like, “Jake Gyllenhaal is standing next to me emitting his awesome essence, but I’ve got 10 more stops to go, so I’m gonna take a nap. Wake me when we get to Times Square, Jake.” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
