I’m One Big Home Design Mistake

Nick Olsen, former Domino blogger and an assistant designer to the amazingness that is Miles Redd, came up with a list of first-timer decorating mistakes forThe Washington Post. Now, since I’ve painted and re-done my bedroom no less than four times over the past year, I considered myself to be over that beginner mistake hump. Ha, think again. As I went down his totally-helpful list, I realized that at one point in my life or another (and even right now, as I look up at a mirror hung horizontally over my couch) I’ve made every single one of the mistakes! Live and learn, I guess—but check his list out, it’s totally solid design advice! [The Washington Post] Keep reading »

A Sex Toy Vending Machine To Make Your Ladyparts Sing

This morning I was driven into orgasmic ecstacy when I found out about this sex toy vending machine. A brilliant company, called Tabooboo, has been marketing these for a few years but people are finally starting to take notice. Available mostly in the U.K., these bright pink vending machines sell 11 different products—including nipple clamps, heaven beads, finger bunnies, key chain rockets, and love eggs. Most of the products are pretty small and discreet although there’s nothing secretive about buying a sex toy from a vending machine. Best of all, they are cheap, about $9 each.

At our offices they just took away our first aid kit, and I think they owe us something. Although this machine costs $1800, if we can’t have band-aids and aspirin, at least we should have vibrators. Because an orgasm is the best painkiller there is. [Tabooboo] Keep reading »

Jennifer Love Hewitt And Other Celebrities Who Dole Out Advice In Self-Help Books

Serial monogamist Jennifer Love Hewitt thinks she has enough experience in the dating department to come to the aid of the rest of us. After a failed relationship with John Mayer and broken engagements to Carson Daly and Ross McCall, Love Hewitt is pressuring her current beau to popping the question — and dishing out advice to single ladies. According to People, the actress is putting out a book titled The Day I Shot Cupid, which will address relationship topics like flirting via text and how to start over after a breakup.

While it’s true she has dated her fair share, we’re not sure Love has the know-how to help us recover from ill-advised late night sexting, first-date mishaps, and horrifying breakups. Just because you’re famous, doesn’t mean you know what you’re doing. But that little fact hasn’t stopped her or other stars from counseling us on their various subjects of expertise.

Crave: Clare Vivier Bags (Win One!)

Aretha may have crooned about a chain of fools, but she probably didn’t consider what a love fool one would become after seeing Vivier’s chain-print tote bags. Made from French linen and hemp handles, each purse features a printed navy chainlink design, a thoughtful detail that transforms the concept of totes from casual to chic. There are three styles to best suit your needs: a purse-like zip bag, a foldover messenger, or a simple market tote. In the market for something less summery? We’re crushing on the rest of the Vivier collection, which includes affordable and roomy teal suede carry-alls, functional laptop bags, and clutches crafted from special leather remnants which are made to resemble old-fashioned bank bags. Whichever you pick, you’re sure to find the missing link in your wardrobe. [$80 and up, SeeVivier.com]

We’re giving away one Vivier French Linen Zip Sac, but you have to work if you want to win. The best commenter for this coming week—from today, Friday, June 19 through Thursday, June 25—will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Zack Johnson Has a Vagina! And Gets His Period!

I remember when I got my period for the first time. I had just gotten back from the worst day at school ever—I was in a crap mood and had what I thought was a wicked stomach ache. My mom dragged me to my grandparent’s house for dinner and that’s when I discovered what was really going on. I was mortified, scared, excited, in pain. Ever since, I (like all of you ladies except the skippers) have been navigating the complexities of cramps, menstrual products, and rebelling emotions.

So what would happen if a teenage guy woke up one day to find he had a vagina and was getting his period? Would he have a mental breakdown? Or an epiphany where he finally understands women? A new, extremely strange Tampax campaign is positing the latter. They’re pushing all sorts of boundaries with a character named Zack Johnson—a cute 16-year-old dude who wakes up one morning with lady parts. When I first saw his fictional blog Zack16.com, I was too dumbfounded to even know how to process it. The site chronicles his “changes,” day by day. WTF? Keep reading »

Now, my new love is Booty Parlor’s Add Magic water-based lube with its very clean packaging. Keep reading »
