Tavi And Jane Pratt To Start “Sassy”-Esque Teen Mag (And You Can Be A Part Of It!)

The media lords hath heard our prayers! If you aren’t already freaking out, you will when you hear this: Fashion blogging sensation Tavi and Jane Pratt (founder and editor of Sassy and Jane mags) are teaming up to create a new teen magazine. Tavi made the announcement on her blog, saying, “You guys may know how I feel about Sassy. You also may know that I’ve been babbling about how I think our generation should get one, too. Jane Pratt, founding editor and then EIC of Sassy, also became aware, and emailed me, and we’ve met a couple times, and it looks like we’re going to start a magazine for an audience of wallflowerly teenage girls.”

People like us have been clamoring for ages for a Sassy revival, and we could see the potential for that to happen with Tavi, but as she wisely points out, “[this magazine] won’t be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0) and nor do we want it to be.” Rather, the publication will “use Sassy as a point of reference for the whole teen-magazine-that-doesn’t-suck thing …” We love how Tavi wants to create something new but still retain the nostalgia for an era that feels creative to us now … Keep reading »

For The Week Of November 15-21, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

This is your week to start working out a sweeter deal with your baby, as you’ll both be starting to sync up in quite the lovely way to make goals that will inspire both of you. Seems the future is turning out not to be such a dark void that leaves you wondering. With this foundation being set, you can expect all other areas of your life to start to fall into place too!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

A sudden change of heart may happen, which will be stressful, but it’s a necessary hurdle to jump over if you want to get to the place you feel you should be. Sure, no one likes being a heartbreaker, but when all is said and done and you can look back at the chain of events objectively, you’ll see that this is a title you should wear as a badge of honor.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

What goes down must come up. Thankfully, this is the week things start to soar back into place. The planets will slowly come out of their haziness and back to where you need them to be for the universe to work its muscle in helping you create the vision you dream for yourself, and perhaps a certain lucky someone.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You just have to roll the dice sometimes and let whatever you have said do what it must. Sure, you might have let it pour from your mouth faster than you had time to edit, but whatever seeped out, trust it. Hopes and dreams do work out in the way they want to, just not necessarily the way you think.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You can’t be scared to grab the truth by the balls and make it what you will. Yes, not all of what you now know is a piece of cake, but knowing the truth is a power unto itself — as now you truly know where you are and who is behind you. Realize that rising above and reclaiming the helm to your own life is just a few decisions away.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Dreams and passion are coming back big-time this week, shaking you to the core and right back onto your feet and into the thick of things. Seems your time of watching from the sidelines is over, as now your genius is back on track. So, don’t be shy in sharing your ideas and planning for the long term.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Your first ideas will be your best, so don’t second-guess yourself. Sure, the past few months have been a bit unpredictable, leaving you to wonder what exactly is best for you. But now with your instincts at their strongest, without a doubt work your charisma to get the world back into the palm of your hand.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

All the issues that have been ruffling your feathers as of late are miraculously going to move into past tense mode. Perhaps it’s that you’re both tired of arguing or a real solution has been found. Whichever the case, compromise is coming just in time to save you from another round of drama, which, incidentally, has been teaching you the age-old lesson that relationships are hard work.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Working out your day-to-day with your honey is going to get a lot easier, as your schedule will start freeing up and you will be able to plan in some more romantic times. However, don’t put too much pressure on yourself to make these moments all about you and him. Sometimes the sweetness arises when hanging out with others.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The rose-colored glasses are coming off and now you will get a clear view of what is happening in your love life. New boundaries are going to be drawn and new ideals set into place. Whatever happens from here on out will be on more solid ground than you would have thought. This is the phase when reality starts to set the tone and will truly be your friend.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The party is going to be back on! So, time to splurge and do it up as if it’s the end of the world, because right now is all about letting off some steam and taking on a devil-may-care attitude. What you give is what you will get, so set the pace for fun because if you want it, it’ll be there. Yes, attitude, it’s all about attitude!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

This is your week to share those sexy fantasies that you think make you a freak, because someone else wants to hear about them. Seems you’re not the only one on the block to think the nasty things you do and when such great minds think alike, there is no reason not to take up the offer and fly off to this dream wonderland together. Who knows? It might just be a one-way ticket.

How To Be A Great Date

The best way to establish and maintain instant dating rapport is to talk about the other person, not you. Successful dating starts with successful conversations! Successful conversations are sustained by placing full attention on the person in front of you.

Even if your accomplishments include running up Mt. Everest without crampons or landing a deal with Donald Trump, defer this information. I don’t care if Lady Gaga just asked you to sing back-up for her, keep it under wraps! You will have plenty of time to talk about yourself as the conversation progresses. Keep reading »
