Plain cotton socks just don’t cut it in the winter; once they get wet, either from sweat or snow, they stay wet. And wet feet lead to cold feet. Wool socks, however, still provide insulation even when wet, guarding against hypothermia. But since we like our clothing to be as fabulous as it is functional, we’re dying for these angora over-the-knee socks that have a touch of lurex. We like the idea of layering them over tights, slouching them below cropped cords, and letting them peek out from our knee-high boots.
Well that’s one way to get Rihanna‘s attention. Perhaps not the most effective? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
The last time we saw a perm and liked it was in 7th grade when Jennifer Guglio’s mom let her get one and she accessorized it with colorful baby barrettes and Hello Kitty hair ties. That. Was. So. Cool. Since then? Not so much. Until Marie Claire brought up perms recently. They’re back, apparently. But not for your hair—for your eyelashes?! One MC beauty writer talks about getting the treatment at a NYC salon. The writer was extremely satisfied with her $80+ treatment, saying that her curly lashes made her face look “more feminine” and that she didn’t need to wear mascara because they were so dramatic … Keep reading »
A couple in England was reunited recently after over 23 years apart when the woman tracked down the man to give a DNA sample for a paternity test. Sarah Daniels, 42, showed up at Roy Cook’s door after ending their brief eight-month romance 23 years earlier. She was 17 the last time she saw him and pregnant with his baby, although she didn’t know that at the time. She moved quickly to a new relationship and when a pregnancy test came up positive, she assumed her new dude was the daddy. That guy split after baby Danny was born and a few years ago when he reappeared in their lives, Sarah realized there were no physical similarities between the two men. That’s when she remembered Roy and decided to track him down. Keep reading »
There’s nothing wrong with vowing to lose weight or quit smoking, but as far as most New Year’s resolutions go, they’re a bit tired and uninspired, don’t you think? For your health and happiness, by all means put down the cigarettes and pick up some hand-weights, but in the interest of personal growth and feeling more connected to the world around you, I suggest you adopt these six resolutions in the new year, too.

If you believe in romantic comedies, the ideal outcome of any romantic relationship is that both partners love each other equally. But is that always true in real life? Sure, it may be the case some of the time, but the fact of the matter is that relationships are often uneven or unequal when it comes to love. Especially at the start of a relationship, it’s not uncommon for one partner to be more enamored of the other. Maybe the guy is salivating after the girl like a hungry dog, while she could care less. Or we’ve all heard girlfriends whining about the guy they’re madly in love with — who never calls. I once saw a movie in which an older couple said the reason they never got divorced is because they never fell out of love at the same time. That’s an interesting twist — and suggests that love isn’t always a two-way street, but more like a freeway designed by a crackhead. You never know where it’s going to twist and turn. Is your relationship “equal” when it comes to love? Is it better to love the other person more or for the other person to love you more? Or is love too weird, complicated, and abstract to even be comprehended? Keep reading »
