10 Chick Flick Cliches That Are NOT In “He’s Just Not That Into You”

You know what? I know that everyone and their mom is going to hate on the movie version of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Maybe there was a reason to hate on the book — I don’t know, I didn’t read it — but this movie looks funny. For starters, I love Ginnifer Goodwin; I also have been known to stare at a cell phone for over an hour, willing it to ring (with a call from a guy I totally love); I also have spent many, many years making crap excuses for bad boy behavior because I just didn’t want to recognize that maybe he was either A) a douche or B) a perfectly fine who was just not that into me. Am I betraying women everywhere for admitting to that? I don’t think so. Anyway, in the hilarious video above, the male stars of the film explain the 10 Chick Flick Cliches that are NOT in this particular chick flick. So you could technically maybe bring a dude to it. Only I wouldn’t, if you ever want to hear from him again. Keep reading »

You Go Girl: Female Merit Badges

Artist Mary Yeager has created a line of “Female Merit Badges” which resemble Girl Scout Merit Badges, but represent female rites of passage like childbirth, inserting a tampon, breast exams, and birth control pills. While you can’t order the individual patches to sew onto your awesome Army jacket (What? You don’t have one?), you can order a full color poster which features 28 of the patches.

DIY: Instant Art

Looking to make your cell of an apartment a little less depressing without pissing off your crotchety landlord? Painting your blues away will also mean kissing your deposit good bye and those N’Sync posters are kind of unacceptable at this point. So what’s a budget-conscious girl to do?

Though the options outside of boy bands and large scale art are admittedly slim, check out Kate’s Paperie or Papyrus for vintage-looking wrapping paper sheets worthy of framing. Blown up maps and post cards, old school anatomy textbook images and embarrassing ’70s yearbook pictures are looking for a home at less than $4.50 a pop.

Slide the poster-sized sheets into cheap as hell frames from A.I. Friedman and just wait for your friends to jealously ask where you got your new art. Be sure to tell them it’s from a gallery in SoHo or Paris. Feeling just a tad superior is half the fun. Keep reading »

Dress Up Your Downstairs

Apparently it’s not enough just to get a bikini wax anymore. No, now you have to adorn your lady parts. Completely Bare Spas are now offering their Opulent Bikini Wax at their six locations. It includes: a wax, followed by a 24k gold spray and Swarovski crystal decorations (you can either get a heart of your significant other’s initials). Oh, and if you’re single but don’t want to miss out on the waxing fun, you can get a broken heart or a skull and crossbones instead. [Couture In The City] Keep reading »

Forget Significant Others, Give Yourself A Valentine’s Day Present

Valentine’s Day is mere weeks away, and if you’re in a relationship, don’t expect to get much in the way of presents. A study found that couples are expected to spend nearly 17 percent less on gifts and Valentine’s Day merchandise compared with 2008, or an average of $102.50. With skimpy Valentine’s Day gifts expected among couples, it’s not a bad time to be single. You don’t need to waste your hard-earned cash on a nice present when you might not get something of equal value (or anything you like) in return. You don’t have to spend money on new lingerie, sexy dresses, or bikini waxes. And you don’t have to throw away dough on sex toys, teddy bears holding roses, or boxes of chocolates. Why don’t you celebrate yourself and take the $102.50 or whatever amount you would have used to buy a present and buy yourself something you like. Not only have you been saving money by not being in a relationship, but we buy ourselves the best presents anyway. Keep reading »
