Nice-Meeting-You-But-We’re-Not-Dating Cards

Telling a guy who’s trying to make something happen with you that you’re not interested is about as fun as doing your taxes or cleaning out the garage. But you should do it, because no one likes it when someone feigns interest and then pulls “the fade.” In our dream world, when a sleazy guy tries to pick us up at a bar, we’d hand him one of these cards with a smile — before walking away. But in the real world, we probably wouldn’t have the balls to do that. Keep reading for two other options. [Etsy]

Where Are All The Acid Wash Jeans?

The Frisky staff was talking about what ’80s fashion trends we wish would make comebacks, since most styles from back in the day have returned. Jean jackets covered in sequins and pins, catsuits, and lamé all came up in the conversation. I said acid wash denim, and everyone jumped all over me. For most people, acid wash jeans seem like a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea. What do I think is a horrible idea? Wearing acid wash jeans with an American Apparel T-shirt and tough-girl boots. Instead, I’m looking for a pair to wear with preppy striped shirts and button-downs. Sadly, not many companies are making them. Am I the only one who thinks they’d be a good idea? [Bleach Acid Skinny Jeans, $80, Topshop] Keep reading »

The Five Most Important Things You Should Know About: Syphilis

  1. Syphilis is a mighty morphing STD that is hard to detect. Its symptoms don’t occur in a consistent order, but experts have narrowed them down to four stages. The primary stage is when a firm sore, called a chancre, appears around your lady parts. You can get one firm sore or many love bumps. They may dry out and heal, but you’re still stuck with the infection. The second stage includes on-and-off rash, fever, fatigue, aching, and sore throat. The third stage is the hidden stage, when symptoms don’t appear for years, as this STD attacks and progresses.
  2. If left untreated, syphilis can damage your heart and brain in the final stages. The tertiary, or late syphilis, stage also attacks the eyes, blood vessels, liver, bones, and joints. Signs of late syphilis include paralysis, numbness, blindness, and even dementia. If you think you might have the Syph, you need to get treatment as soon as possible. Your chances of getting HIV increase if you have syphilis because chancres make it easier to pass on and acquire HIV.

Get In Dita Von Teese’s Pants (Or At Least Her Bra)

If there was ever a time to ditch your Gap Body bras and underwear, it’s now. (Nothing against Gap underthings. They’re supremely comfy, but they lack in the ME-ow! department.) The ever-so-seductive Dita Von Teese has a new collection of vintage-inspired bras and underwear by Wonderbra and they are H-O-T. You want them.

The Grand Dame of Burlesque got it right. The line is a combination of 1950s shapes and 1940s fabrics and includes a mixture of suspenders, thongs, and bras that Von Teese says are so comfortable she wears them regularly. Now, I’m not advocating the suspender get-up for you r9-to-5 gig (unless work happens to be about shedding layers of clothing), but adding a little Von Teese sexy into your life has got to be a pretty cost-effective upgrade, especially in these economically grim times.

Gaming Gore: Four Non-Violent Video Games

Beyonce Wants To Settle Down … On Broadway

Beyonce has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide and appeared in several movies, including her first non-singing role as Sharon Charles in “Obsessed,” which opens today. But her ultimate goal is to be on Broadway. “It’s my ideal job,” she told Reuters. “I’ll be able to go to the theater every day and drop my kids off and maybe make some food — maybe I’ll know how to cook by then — and then go do what I love and have some normalcy and have a regular schedule.”

Beyonce the entertainer is phenomenal, but Beyonce the actress is meh. Hopefully, she’ll hone her acting skills before making the leap to the theater. She’s totally skilled, however, to dance on any Broadway stage. [Reuters]

P.S. What do y’all think about the dress Beyonce wore to the “Obsessed” New York Premiere? Too tight? Too glam? Just right? Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Tori Spelling On Shaving Your Pubes While Pregnant

“I wasn’t prepared for losing sight of my lower region. I’d say, ‘Dean, how’s it looking down there? Do I need to shave?’ But of course I couldn’t shave. So Dean had to shave me. He’d hold up a mirror and say ‘How’d I do?’ Or he’d take a picture with his Blackberry to show me.”
