Seven Compliments That Won’t Get You Laid

If you’ve thumbed through an issue of Maxim magazine or Men’s Health anytime in the last twenty-five years, you’ve probably read a few pointers on how to properly compliment a woman. Personally, I think these lists can be a little too vague, and quite honestly, a little lame. For example, one list I read recently said, “When you meet someone interesting, commend her on her wit or intelligence—not her beautiful breasts.” That someone actually felt compelled to remind men not to compliment breasts at first sight shocked me. Don’t all guys know not to do this? Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: How Not To Get Revenge On An Ex

Well-known peacenik Mahatma Ghandi famously proclaimed, “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” Sorry, Ghandi, but I beg to disagree. The sad fact is, there are times in a lady’s life when revenge tastes pretty sweet. (Even in a blind taste test.)

One of those times is after some cad shatters your tender little heart into a billion tiny shards. Sure, embracing the gloom is one way of dealing, but who are you really hurting by forcing ice cream down your pie-hole whilst weeping over Lifetime movies and stalking his Facebook page? Answer: Yourself.

Wouldn’t it be more fun to hurt him? The dude who done you wrong? Keep reading »

The Summer Survival Guide For College Freshman

It’s been a lovely summer. I’m living in my favorite city in the world, writing at The Frisky, living with my boyfriend, and relaxing in the Berkshires on the weekends. All is fine, dandy, and I’m as easy and breezy as a cover girl…until I see a new email in my inbox. As soon as I open it, the walls around my perfect summer start to crumble: The season is ending and I’m about to begin graduate school. In Scotland. Cue multiple panic attacks.

Do I know anybody? Nope. Have I any clue where I am going and what am I doing? Eh, no. Will I be smart enough? Will I make any friends? What if people don’t like me? What if I’m not good enough? But wait, I’ve thought all of this before. Truth be told, I have variations of these thoughts all the time, but I’ve had this specific anxiety attack before. In fact, it was the summer before my freshman year of college. If you feel similarly, follow the jump for your coping strategy. Keep reading »

Crave: Christopher Kane Gorilla Shirts

I don’t know what all the fuss is about when it comes to these ugly/sexy Christopher Kane gorilla shirts/dresses, but I love them. It makes as much sense as why people enjoy sitting in the rain or feel the need to eat Oreos with peanut butter. Celebs from Rihanna to our Sea of Shoes girl have been sporting them out on the town. (If anyone wants to time warp with me you’ll remember that indie fave Kristen Stewart even sported a gorilla dress on the march edition of Nylon.) Let’s investigate, shall we? Keep reading »

Christian Lacroix’s Final Bow

Many, many years ago, a friend of mine went to Paris and brought me back a pink and purple silk scarf from Christian Lacroix. It was a dream come true. My first piece from a fancy French designer! Now, I’ll have to treasure my scarf even more, as the design house will likely close at the end of the month due to financial woes.

On Tuesday in Paris, Lacroix showed what will likely be his final couture collection, unless he can find new investors to back him. The fashion community came together to help put on this grand finale, and seamstresses, makeup artists, and hairdressers offered their services free of charge. Contributing to the somber mood, badges that read “Christian Lacroix Forever” were handed out at the show, and many of the clothes were black. But instead of being sad, let’s take a trip down memory lane and remember the great designer and a few of the crazy creations celebs rocked and models wore down the runway. [AP]

15 Things We’d Miss About Men

Ever since word got out earlier this week that scientists have figured out how to create synthetic sperm from embryonic stem cells, people have been fantasizing what a world without men might be like. I don’t get it — would synthetic sperm only create girl babies? And why would any of us want a world with no men anyway? Who would carry our heavy luggage up the stairs after getting home from a vacation? After the jump, 15 things we’d miss about men if they ever became extinct. Keep reading »
