Confession: I am a collector of things. I have a hard time parting with random people’s business cards, clothes I haven’t worn in years, and even pens. A new survey by classifieds website Kijiji.com found that 81 percent of couples view unused items lying around the house as a source of tension in their relationships. In the survey, 27 percent of men and 17 percent of women say their partner’s clothes and fashion items cause the greatest conflict. I suppose this is as good a reason as any to clean out the ole closet. Keep reading »
After the nice long weekend of excess we just had, we’re feeling that end-of-summer pull to start fresh. Maybe because fall reminds us of blank notebooks, unsharpened pencils, and new clothes, this time of year seems like a better time than New Year’s to make resolutions and stick to them…at least until the holiday parties start. So, here are are few suggestions for what you should resolve to do now that September has begun.
Eat better Because eating hot dogs and barbecue chips might have left you deficient of certain nutrients. Keep reading »
Every woman should have a clutch in her wardrobe. And this one is the tops. Its black pebbled leather means it will age well and the pleated leather and gold logo medallion make it even more special. Unlike most clutches, this one will actually hold more than a lipstick, credit card and keys because it has a zip pocket, a patch pocket and a cell phone pocket. [$193.99, Bluefly] Keep reading »
Dang, “What Would You Do With A D–k For A Day?” really was a hot topic huh? Thanks for stopping by gentlemen and cluing us into some fun we might have missed. But the thing really weighing on my mind? Do guys ever consider what they would do with a vagina for a day? I suspected that A) they would either be too uncreative to have actually considered it or B) only considered the sexual aspects, and after discussing the topic with a few of the guys on my IM, guess what? I was right! Keep reading »
Every week I wonder why it is that I’m still watching and using coveted DVR space for The Hills. I’m sorry, maybe these girls are more interesting in real life, but NOTHING happens on this show. Last night I watched 22 minutes of Lauren deciding that she and Doug should just be friends. Seriously? Keep reading »

Thanks to Hurricane Gustav, the Republican National Convention’s “will it or won’t it happen” debate, and Sarah Palin, the media didn’t get much of a holiday this Labor Day, did they? The latter — Sarah Palin, the Governor from Alaska chosen to be Senator John McCain’s running mate — was an especially hot topic this weekend as news broke nearly every hour it seemed with some new revelation. Having spent the weekend absorbing every ounce of coverage on Palin, I woke up this morning with the clear hunch that Palin may end up dropping out of the VP spot this week — but not wanting to rush to judgment, I decided to weigh the various pros and cons of her leaving the race. Place your bets in the comments! Keep reading »
Gossip Girl came back into our lives last night, and since the show is all about the couplings of characters, whether in friendship, love, or sex, here’s a rundown of what the duos were up to in last night’s season premiere. SIDENOTE: Did anyone else have a major problem with the all-too-obvious VitaminWater sponsorship? The brand name was uttered at least three times.
Serena and Dan
They broke up in last season’s finale. Serena spends the summer moping by herself in the Hamptons, and even a cute lifeguard couldn’t raise her spirits. Dan becomes a more literary Chuck and hooks up with any slightly attractive female he encounters while interning for his favorite author (he used the internship more to pick up intelligent girls, than to work on his writing). When Dan finally realizes he’s been a jerk and really misses Serena, he goes to the Hamptons to try to get her back. Dan arrives at the party right when Serena is kissing Nate, but after Dan’s two flings throw VitaminWater on him, the two lovebirds make up and all is right in the world. Keep reading »
