The problem with pretty laptop sleeves is that you hardly ever get to see them when they’re stuffed in your purse. (Unless you take to carrying around your laptop as a huge clutch, which doesn’t seem very comfortable, safe, or practical.) Enter Rebecca Minkoff and her wonderful laptop carrier that’s half purse, half case. Both business-y and fashion-y, the alligator-embossed leather holder is accommodating enough to hold all your other necessaries, or is slim enough to complement a second purse.
In our relationship study of the day, researchers from University of Newcastle, Australia have discovered that attractiveness is all in the tilt of a head. OK, maybe it’s not all in the tilt of a head, but research indicates that women and men can make themselves more attractive to the opposite sex by angling their face a certain way.

I don’t really think the knockoff looks anything like the original. But then again, neither do those copycat engagement rings. When they manage to knock off a rich, handsome prince, then I’ll be impressed. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
About a month ago I was waiting in line at the grocery store when I spotted a hot guy standing behind me. I made a joke about how slow the line was going. He laughed. I smiled. And off we were. After we had both checked out, he continued to walk with me to the subway. He even offered to carry my bags.
