Fantasies We Hope Never Come True

In a recent article from “Men’s Health” a female writer decides to speak for her gender and tell the mostly male readers what women wish they’d do to get them off. Of the 18 fantasies she lists, I concur with six…well, maybe six and a half. The others are just so off-the-mark and absurd, I worry about men incorporating these fantasies into their sexual routines and turning off women so dramatically that all sex becomes just a fantasy. After the jump, a few of the “women’s fantasies” that are especially ridiculous. Keep reading »

Five Things You Should Know About Jason Wu

The name Jason Wu is hot on everyone’s lips right now, as it should be. The 26-year-old designed Michelle Obama’s inaugural ball gown and, let’s not forget, the shift dress she wore for a Barbara Walters interview in November. After the jump, a brief introduction to the cherubic-faced designer, whose dress for the new First Lady will become part of the Smithsonian’s collection of inaugural dresses. Keep reading »

Say Goodbye To Bush In More Than One Way

Americans aren’t the only ones happy to see former President George W. Bush move out of Washington. Veet, the stinky hair-removal product, has joined waxing salons in using the “Goodbye Bush” concept to their benefit. Lawn landscaping companies really should get in on the action before it’s too late. [AdFreak.com] Keep reading »

Us Weekly Flip-Flops On Celebrity Diets!

A few weeks ago, I wrote about my least favorite issue of Us Weekly — their annual “Diets That Work!” extravaganza. As usual, they lauded the absurd diet and fitness habits of already totally skinny celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce, and Molly Sims. But three weeks have passed and the editors have seemed to come to a realization — many of the fad celebrity diets which result in the super slim bodies they praised for “28 Bonus Pages!” are actually, GASP, dangerous and unhealthy. The latest issue of Us reports on “the new and risky cleanses stars” — like Paltrow, Beyonce, and Sims — “use to slim down.” Wait, you mean Gwyneth needs to do more than work out 14 hours a week in order to have those enviable stems? Say WHAT?! Keep reading »

Inaugural Memories Could Lead To Tattoo Regret

Sometimes a chocolate bust, comic book, pint of beer or T-shirt just isn’t adequate. Therefore, some Obama supporters have taken to inking their skin to memorialize this moment in history. One Washington, D.C. parlor is even running a promotion for people in town for the inauguration. Fatty’s Custom Tattooz and Body Piercing has christened this week “Obamathon,” where customers can get a free “Obama ’08″ logo tattoo if they spend at least $200 on another tattoo. There have been multiple inquiries about Obama tattoos at Fatty’s and other Washington-area parlors, but, thankfully, only a few have gone through with it. Find out why I say “thankfully” after the jump. Keep reading »

How Michelle Obama’s Fashion Choices Reflect Her Husband’s Politics

Michelle Obama looked stunning at last night’s inaugural balls in a white one-shoulder full-length gown by 26-year-old Tapei-born, New York-based designer Jason Wu. But her choices might not only be based on what looks good on her. In fact, if you read into yesterday’s outfits, Barack and Michelle are very much on the same page when it comes to fashion and politics.

1. Just as Barack Obama’s presidential campaign aimed to invigorate young people and emphasized that their votes counted, Michelle is giving the same sense of purpose to young designers. No longer does a designer need to be an household name to have their designs worn to big-time events, though it helps if they’ve been in the running for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund endowment like many of the designers she’s worn (Jason Wu, Isabel Toledo, Thakoon).

Enough With All The Hugging Already!

Today is National Hugging Day, which seems like the perfect time to request that we stop hugging each other so much. It’s gotten out of hand, all this embracing and invading each other’s personal space. It’s not enough that we hug each other ‘hello,’ we have to hug out our “good-byes,” and our “congratulations,” and “so sorry you’ve lost your job.” I even had someone hug me recently when she found a great pair of boots on sale. Enough already! We don’t even stop at hugging good friends and family anymore. These days we hug acquaintances, co-workers, salespeople, even the pilots that fly our planes get hugs now.

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Are You A Feminist?

Last week we wrote about the controversy surrounding Ms. magazine’s cover image which featured President Obama in a shirt that reads, “This Is What A Feminist Looks Like.” Around the same time, it was revealed that Obama does identify as a feminist, a fact that, frankly, impresses me. Many women with feminist values don’t identify as feminist and that’s even more true of men. But now that President Obama, whose inauguration was the most viewed, um, ever, has identified as a feminist AND the leading feminist magazine has declared him one, will male feminists be more in vogue? I decided to ask the guys on my IM. Check their responses, after the jump… Keep reading »
