Quick Pic: Sookie Stackhouse, You Are Mahhhhn!

In the latest issue of New York, Emma Rosenblum describes a scene from the new season of “True Blood” (which premieres this Sunday):

“Bill, the brooding village vampire, beds Sookie, his mortal girlfriend, after they’ve had an argument. It’s steamy stuff—makeup sex is still makeup sex, even when one party isn’t technically living. Mid-act, Bill bites Sookie’s neck with his fangs in an orgasmic frenzy, then kisses her, smearing her own red blood down her cheeks and onto her lips.”

The Japanese Face Slimmer Leaves Us Speechless, Literally

If you want a thinner face or you are into Darth Vader chic, then I have the product for you. After mulling over the absurdity that is the Japanese Face Slimmer I understand the beauty process as follows: the mask smushes your face to slim it down. First, it melts the fat off your face by massaging your facial dermis—I have always thought there was a fine line between massaging and mauling. Then, the sweat produced from the poorly-ventilated mask combined with the sweat from your chubby cheeks acts as a sauna.

If you have the self-confidence to actually wear this face mask, then kudos to you. For the rest of us who lack egos of steel, a good (or even mediocre) bronzer can fake high cheekbones without the risk of permanently scarring your cat/boyfriend/neighbors, etc. [$32, Japanese Face Slimmer, Amazon] Keep reading »

It’s One Thing To Eat Play-Doh, It’s Another To Smell Like Play-Doh

I have never really been into cologne. They all more or less smell the same to me, i.e. “ugh, way too much cologne.” That being said, my blase reaction to cologne is probably partially due to the fact that I have yet to run into a dude wearing a cologne by Demeter. Calling Demeter’s scents “run of the mill” is like calling Michelle Obama’s arms puny. Sure, there are the more traditional sniffers like Earl Grey Tea, Cannabis Flower and Redhead in Bed, but these are not what caught my attention. Oh no, the real eye brow raising scents were those reminiscent of our childhood. Keep reading »

Fatherhood Makes Guys Smarter

So, guys gain an average of 14 pounds while their ladies are pregnant. Not so cute. But Craig Kinsley and Kelly Lambert recently released a study that shows that fatherhood has some pretty great side effects for dudes. According to their research, male hormones are altered when a guy is expecting or has a baby, making him “more canny and resourceful.” The chemistry is simple. A man’s testosterone level lowers when he lives with a woman he loves—be it girlfriend or wife—and his prolactin level rises when he has a child, making him more sympathetic, motivated to care for his kids, and better at handling stress. Now that gets a big awww. [Utne Reader] Keep reading »

Magic Copper Pillow Gets Rid Of Wrinkles!…Possibly

Usually, when I write about a beauty product I know whether I am hailing it as the greatest thing since sliced bread or as a WTF? With the copper-infused pillow cover, well, I just don’t know. Apparently you can get rid of wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet by sleeping on a copper-threaded pillow.

According to the peeps at Cupron, who make the copper infused pillow (as well as copper infused gloves and eye masks), copper has been used since ancient Egyptian times for its “antimicrobial properties.” How this translates to less wrinkles, I have no idea, but Cupron’s own clinical trials have shown that people who use the pillow are more likely to see a reduction in them.

Bottom line: it might not work, but if you need a new pillow anyway you might as well try and be a beauty pioneer. [$37.99, Cupron Cosmetic Skin Appearance-Enhancing Satin Pillowcase,CupronSales.com] Keep reading »

I Wanna Dress Like: Fran Fine From “The Nanny”

the nanny 060809 g3 jpg
Fran Fine (Fran Drescher) from “The Nanny” was all about bold prints, lot’s of leg, Chanel-inspired clothes and accessories, and showing off her figure. She is, after all, “the lady in red when everybody else is wearing tan.” We wouldn’t want you to adopt every look from the ’90s, but we do think that some of Nanny Fine’s dressing principles could translate for summer 2009 — just save the black hose for winter.
