We don’t care how much money you have — or don’t have — there’s nothing like free stuff. One of the best deals we’ve heard of in ages is getting ready to assault your senses, or more to the point, your skin, in mere hours.

Is This Italian Durex Ad Offensive To Women?

In this Italian ad for a female enhancement cream (“O Gel”) made by Durex, a woman is having such an intense orgasm that she’s somehow managed to rake trails into her nightstand with her nails (girl clearly has acrylics).

Lord knows the Italians find entertainment in characterizing women as devilish evil-doers, a prime example being the “Foxy Knoxy” case that gave Italy’s tabloids a field day.

Here again we see a woman who has been cast as a vixen with a violent edge. What do you think? Does this Durex ad lend an animalistic/too violent quality to the image of women? Or does something about it ring true for the crowd who likes rough sex? Leave your response in the comments below!

As a side note, the blog Copyranter suggests that the ad would have been more effective and interesting without the woman’s arm, and just the scratched table. [Copyranter.blogspot.com] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Why EChem is Just Not Enough

I heart words and communication. This includes emails, text messages, Gchat, Blackberry Messenger, iChat — the works. I am a sucker for a well-crafted email or a witty text message. My motto: The way to my heart is through my brain. That’s why I thought Joe could be Mr. Perfect for me. Joe and I met one night at a work gala. I had already put away an entire bottle of wine when I almost knocked him over on the dance floor.

“Do you like to dance, beautiful girl who almost stepped on my foot?” he asked.

“Only when I’m drunk. When I’m sober, I dance like Elaine from ‘Seinfeld.’” I replied.

It was a rainy October night and Joe offered to escort me to the subway when the event ended, impressed that I could: a.) still walk and b.) do it in 3-inch heels. “Email me,” I slurred, handing him my business card, “I loooove emails.”

DIY Cool Braids

Sometimes inspiration comes when you’re not looking for it. In some of our random fashion browsing on the Internet, when we were looking for clothing-related posts, we found ourselves completely ignoring the goods on the page and were instead entranced by these models’ hairstyles. The styling on each is perhaps perfect—braids complimented by Grecian and knotted accessories. Here’s how to get these two innovative ‘dos… Keep reading »

Make Six Figures … As A Nanny

What does a French-and-German-speaking, magna-cum-laude graduate from a well-respected university do when she graduates? Well, some are becoming nannies. After 15 years of being a nanny, Autumn Backman is now raking in a six figure income. Despite the fact that the average income of a nanny is $26,000 or about minimum wage, nannies for the elite make bank and lead pampered lives. From traveling on private planes, to vacationing at exclusive resorts, to dining at five-star restaurants, and receiving free BMWs or designer goodies, nannies for the wealthy to some extent get to experience the same royal treatment as their employers. Ummm, where do I sign up? Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Eddie Cibriani’s Wife Has Left Him

  • Eddie Cibriani’s wife has left him, saying that he and LeAnn Rimes deserve each other. [Us Weekly] — So maybe those photos weren’t leaked as a publicity stunt for LeAnn and Eddie’s made-for-TV movie.
  • Sam Ronson and Lindsay Lohan are back to fighting. This time, Lindz was upset because Sam was hanging with Drea De Matteo, and as a result, Sam threw Lindsay’s stuff in the street again. [Dlisted] — All’s right with the world again.

A.P.C. Launches … Kindergarten?

We hear Jean Touitou, the designer behind cult French label A.P.C., may be taking the popular multidisciplinary approach to the fashion business, but in a completely unexpected way. A few months ago, Touitou opened a school for two- to six-year-olds in Paris called Ateliers de la Petite Enfance (or A.P.E. for short). We’re just learning about the posh, artsy academy now, so it made us wonder what would happen if other fashion designers started schools…what would they teach? Keep reading »
