Crave: Bumble Bee Necklace

In this long winter when we can’t bear to buy boots—though we need them—but also can’t quite justify a strapless sundress, this whimsical bauble satiates our shopping crave. The brass bumble bee and indigo agate chain by Jami Rodriguez can cheekily peek through our layers of scarves and sweaters and later can be a centerpiece with airy dresses in summer months. Either way, we’re sure to make a buzz. [$98, MaxandChloe.com] Keep reading »

Lunch Time Liposuction!

We are all a little strapped for time nowadays. It seems there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done. But there’s always time to squeeze in a few errands during lunch. Drop off dry cleaning; run to the bank; pay the cable bill; get liposuction! No seriously. Now you can get the lard sucked out of your thighs while you wait for Subway to finish preparing your six-inch sandwich. Smartlipo is a less invasive form of liposuction that can be done during your lunch break. A tiny instrument, like the size of a pencil point, is used to make the incision. And voila! It starts sucking the fat away from those hard to target areas. The most popular areas Smartlipo is being used on are the abs, love-handles and outer thighs. A woman who had the procedure done said, “It’s better than getting a cavity filled.” Yeah, a sharp object digging into my fleshy stomach — don’t know if that’s better than getting a cavity filled. Actually, they both sound like pretty crappy ways to spend a lunch break. So what are the differences between Smartlipo and regular cosmetic surgery? Keep reading »

How NOT To Jinx A Date

Last night I had a date. It didn’t go so well, and I did everything in my power to get it off to a good start. I shaved my legs, washed my hair, and cleaned my apartment (hey, you never know). Alas, doing those seemed to have brought me bad luck. After the jump, how to jinx a date and how to guarantee it will go well. Keep reading »

I Wanna Dress Like: “Carmen Jones”

Carmen Jones” is one of my favorite films because the title character, played by Dorothy Dandridge, has impeccable style and great one-liners. Carmen wore this saucy and sexy outfit for much of the first half of the movie as she rebelled against conventional norms. Her look was rather simple, just a pencil skirt and off-the-shoulder blouse, but her accessories make it much more interesting. Now all you need is the right attitude and walk. Keep reading »

Would America Fall In Love With A Single Mom As “The Bachelorette”?

“The Bachelor” is about to wrap up its 13th season (or the 16th, if you include the four seasons of “The Bachelorette”), but hasn’t really been the subject of water cooler talk for years. It’s been enough of a success for ABC that they’ve kept it around this long, but studio execs finally struck oil again this season, by electing to feature Jason Mesnick as the man 25 women wanted to meet and marry. The show has seen a ratings surge of 37% above its last season (featuring my personal fave, The British Bach), and the network is already getting ready to do a casting call for a 14th season, after the fifth “Bachelorette” airs this summer. But can they recreate the success of this season? Only if they find another sexy single dad! It’s no coincidence that “The Bachelor” is suddenly the show to watch when the man in question is raising an adorable son on his own. After all, women LOVE a hot dad, especially a dad who has to shoulder the burden of parenthood all by his lonesome. All 25 women were eager to become insta-Step Mommies to Mesnick’s son — though most of them seem ill-equipped for the job. So what would happen if ABC tried the same approach with “The Bachelorette,” and found a (hot, always) single mom as its catch? Would 25 would be suitors come running, ready to be Insta-Step Daddies? Somehow I doubt it. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Models, They’re Just Like Us!

Ways in which models are like normal people, as illustrated in this photo: 1) They drink regular Coke. 2) They have iPhones. That is all.

Justin Timberlake, The Most Stylish Man Alive? Not Always!

Justin Timberlake has been anointed the Most Stylish Man In America by GQ magazine. While I think JT has mad fly (yes, I did just type “mad fly”) style now, it was not so long ago that he was a hot mess. Keep clicking for some of Justin’s most, uh, creative and heinous looks.

“Twilight” Sequel News: Madonna Gets In On The Action

The “Twilight” sequel is such a hot project that everyone wants to dance on its set, including Madonna. Ryan Seacrest told “E! News” that Madonna will be involved in the “Twilight” sequel, “New Moon,” in some capacity. Seacrest said Madonna will most likely appear in the film and provide music for the soundtrack. If the “New Moon” soundtrack is anything like the “Twilight” soundtrack, which featured songs by Paramore and Linkin Park, Madonna’s style of music will stick out like a sore thumb. Also, I can’t think of any role in “New Moon” that is appropriate for Madge. She could play one of the Volterra vampires, but then again, they’re supposed to be young, and we all know Madonna has seen more youthful, softer days. Maybe she’ll be a tourist ravaged by the Volterras in Italy? We could possibly be entertained by that scene. Anyway, I think this is a feeble attempt for Madonna to become relevant to a generation that knows little, and couldn’t care less, about the Material Girl. [OhNoTheyDidnt.com] Keep reading »

Celebrate Black History Month With…Ham Hocks?

So we’ve all heard of celebrating the holidays with traditional food items. Thanksgiving has turkey. Christmas has ham. St. Patty’s Day has beer and, uh, corned beef. Black History Month apparently has collard greens and catfish. Rainbow Grocery Store decided to print the dumbest ad featuring “black people food” in what they consider to be an attempt at celebrating Black History Month. The selection of food is supposed to be what the typical black person eats. So pork hocks and frying chickens are what black people eat on a regular basis? Because I know it’s not in my diet. All they are missing in the ad is grits and chitlins. There’s nothing wrong with eating those food items, but why are such items like seafood and ham considered to be black people food? Do white people have white food? A company rep explains, “This ad was intended to celebrate Black History Month and African American culture by sharing with our customers some of the contributions African Americans have made to the grocery industry.” Mm, ‘kay. Click past the jump to see the full ad! [Gawker]
