Dating Don’ts: How Not To Deal With A Sick Boy

Devil get behind me, it’s cold and flu season. Maybe it’s because I grew up with a mom who refused to categorize any of her five kids as officially “sick” unless fluids were exploding and the temperature hit well into the hundreds, but I am not the person you want taking care of you when you’re not feeling well. Conversely, when I’m under the weather, the first thing out of my boyfriend’s mouth is always an offer to rub my chest down with alcohol just like his Greek mama used to do when he was a kid. No, thanks!

I’ve found there are two types of patients—the cranks and the crybabies. I’m more of a crank. I want glasses of cold water, complete silence for the duration, and whatever medications I’m taking within arm’s reach. Don’t talk to me if you don’t want to get yelled at. Keep reading »

    I Wanna Dress Like: The Morton Salt Umbrella Girl

    Fashion inspiration can come at the strangest of times, like when you’re reaching for a container of salt in your cupboard. The Morton Salt Umbrella Girl has been around since 1914, however her outfit got considerably cuter in 1968. With her flowy shirt dress, mary jane flats, and, most importantly, adorable bobbed hair, the Umbrella Girl is perfectly dressed for spring. I want to be her so badly I even cut my hair off so it looks like hers, only with bangs. Too bad mine doesn’t look as good as hers does when it’s pouring.

    Salma Hayek Launches Makeup Line

    Salma Hayek has beautifully smooth skin, and once she launches her anti-aging cosmetic line, we’ll have her beauty secrets. The line is inspired by Hayek’s grandmother Maria Luisa, who was a makeup artist and used to make her own cosmetics. According to Hayek, Maria Luisa’s skin remained wrinkle-free well into her nineties. “When she died at 96, of course her skin had sagged, but she didn’t have any wrinkles,” Hayek told InStyle. The makeup line will be a recreation of her grandmother’s lotions and potions, made from ingredients available only in Latin America. But we’re also sure it will contain some plum lipsticks and brown and aubergine shade eyeshadows, too, as those are Hayek’s favorites. [Female First] Keep reading »

    Baby Got Back (With Her Padded Butt Panties)

    We’re all about the curves, but strapping some synthetic junk onto our trunks might be where we draw the line. Figleaves.com is now selling “shorties” by Huit ($60) — black or beige panties with round foam padding to plump up the flattest of derrieres.

    If you’re trying to get someone to stare at your sexy curves all night, this will definitely do it. But I foresee the same problem with padded panties as with padded bras: what’s a guy going to think when you’re in bed and your fake foam butt, which he thought was so shapely and sexy and natural, COMES OFF? I pity the dude. [Times of London] Keep reading »

    Women Who Rock: Ida Rosenthal

    March is National Women’s History Month, and we’re celebrating by sharing a lady we admire each weekday.

    IDA ROSENTHAL (1866-1973)

    Ida Rosenthal has had an uplifting effect on virtually every woman in America, though her name may not be instantly recognizable. Rosenthal was the inventor of the modern bra. She was also the embodiment of the American dream, coming over from her native Russia to escape religious persecution in 1904, and setting herself up in business with a partner, Enid Bisset. Together they established Maiden Form. Ida Rosenthal created the modern bra as a way to make the dresses in her shop fit better, but the undergarments became more popular than the dresses.

    The renamed Maidenform company opened its first factory in Bayonne, NJ, in 1925. Maidenform became highly successful, even during the Great Depression, and it also held claim to a lot of firsts, including the first maternity bra, the first adjustable bra fastener, and the development of a standardized method for cup sizes. The fact is that her Maidenform advertising campaign, which utilized underwear models and a racy-for-its-time slogan, “I dreamed…in a Maidenform Bra,” was as big a deal in its time as “wardrobe malfunctions” are now.
