We’re just dying to put some spring into our wardrobe, but we don’t want to freeze our tuckus off. So we’ll pair this bold color dress with a pair of tights, strappy sandals, and a cardigan. And since this one shoulder dress is less than $40, we’ll be able to pick up everything else we need too. Where? At Target, of course. Who doesn’t love one-stop shopping?

Michelle Obama may have won the respect of the nation with her Ivy league pedigree, community service, and career achievements, but she’s now winning adulation with a very retro female trick: keeping her mouth shut and looking pretty!
She’s already been on the covers of various fashion mags, and this week’s New York had an all out Michelle Obama fest, cataloging her fashion achievements, physical stature, and her seemingly healthy sex life. The First Lady, who caught flack last year for saying that her husband’s presidential campaign made her proud of her country for the first time, has quickly learned that a well dressed, well coiffed first lady can wield more power through general affability than with a more vocal, direct approach to politics.

When the fiance of a woman in Florida died suddenly of cancer in January, his bride-to-be lost more than just her groom. She lost more than $800 in unreturned deposits from the venue she planned to hold her wedding reception. Blythe Carpenter was engaged to Jeffery Kallish last May and planned a big wedding bash for January 31st. Less than two months before the wedding, Kallish was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and the couple decided to cancel the wedding and maybe “do something quick later on.” Sadly, Kallish passed away in mid-January before they had a chance to marry. All the wedding vendors but one returned Carpenter’s deposits and payments in mid-December when they were notified of the cancellation. Keep reading »
Esquire has created a series of instructional videos called “Ask A Beautiful Woman,” because, obvi, we babes know it all! From a DEA agent teaching “How To Fire A Hand Gun” to a supermodel heating things up with How To Grill The Perfect Steak, female experts are showing off their typically male-oriented skills. But what about the ladies? We’d like male eye candy to show us a thing or two…

Congratulations! You just learned that a lot of your guy friends have or do think about you while they jerk off! But do you ever think about them? Do tell. Keep reading »
Last night I had the pleasure of guesting on Cosmo Radio on Sirius. One of things we discussed (in addition to the Hottest Guys With Irish Blood and Paul Rudd) was the public’s obsession with the ins and outs of celebrity sex lives. How weird it must be for, say, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, to know that thousands/millions of people actually think about them DOING IT? But Brian, Cosmo Radio’s resident male, clued us in on something startling. There are people — men, specifically — who think about US having sex. How we do it, what we look like when we’re doing it, and what it might be like to be the one doing it to us. In fact, he promised, we could count on the fact that at least five of our guy friends thought about us while they were jerking off. Say what? My guy friends, aka the Guys On Our IM, have potentially included me in their spank bank? I was honored, not disgusted by the notion, and therefore had to confirm… Keep reading »
If you live in Jersey and want to get a Brazilian wax in preparation for bikini weather (or a big date), you might soon have to travel to another state to get your hair down there removed. If a proposal is passed by the New Jersey Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling, genital waxing would become explicitly illegal there. Currently, statutes allow for waxing of the face, neck, arms, legs, and abdomen, and officials say that genital waxing has therefore always been illegal but wasn’t spelled out. If full bikini waxes get banned, we suspect the mob will set up a black market for women who insist on going bare. Too bad Tony Soprano isn’t around anymore, because he would take care of the situation — we can’t imagine him standing for Carmela or Gloria going around ungroomed. [Philly.com] Keep reading »
President Barack Obama’s inauguration was the focus of a special issue Amazing Spider-Man comic, which contained only five pages of the president and Spidey teaming up, but the First Lady is getting an entire comic book dedicated to her. Michelle Obama, who has graced the covers of just about every important culture magazine — People, Vogue, New York, and The New Yorker — will be the third superhero in Bluewater’s new “Female Forces” series. “Strong independent women is what we’re known for,” said Darren Davis, president of Bluewater, which previously featured Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin in comic books of their own. “So doing the ‘Female Force’ series was organic for us — we try to show women in a positive light and tone down the ‘T and A’ angles. They’re no different from a Wonder Woman type of comic.” Keep reading »
In this recession, we’re all tight with our spending, but we don’t want to scrimp on sexy time! So, it’s not shocking adult toy sales are still strong (except in France), but why pay top dollar when the goods are free? Yes we can get creative in these hard (no pun intended) times! Here are our suggestions to put the pinch in penny pinching with sexy stuff under five bucks…

Breaking up is never a pleasant experience. The relationship moves from “You are awesome, let’s spend oodles of time together,” to “Actually, I’m not very fond of you, let’s never see each other again.” Tears fall, fists fly, hurtful things are said—and that’s when a breakup goes well. One of the most important things to decide when breaking up is where it will happen. The right place can help a break up go smoothly. The wrong place and you can wind up crying alone on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike. Not that that’s ever happened to me. In general, you’re looking for neutral territory, a transient place that will not hold the memory of your breakup. Here are four places to avoid and four places to go to have the dreaded breakup conversation. Keep reading »
