What Your Email Sign-Off Says About You

Do you have a standard email sign-off you use like “Thanks,” “Cheers,” or “Best”? Do you change your sign-offs for business emails? I tend to stick with the ol’ XOXO or my first initial (or both) in my personal emails with close friends and use “Thanks” or very occasionally “Cheers” in my business emails. I almost always use “Love” as a sign-off when emailing with my mom, because that’s the sign-off she uses and I like to let her know it’s reciprocated (we aren’t big on saying the “L” word out loud in my family, so it’s nice to sneak it in in an email). And when I email with Dear Wendy letter writers, I use “All the best” as a sign-off because I really do wish them the best. The New York Times published an article recently about email sign-offs — the anxiety they can cause for people and the messages they often send. For example, signing off with “XOXO” might give the wrong message to a co-worker. Thank God I read the Times or I may never have realized this. What other messages might you be sending in your email sign-off?

Forbidden Fruit

You know we Frisky gals love food porn. But supposedly, this is an ad for a Brazilian hotel. My friend Spencer told me they’re giving away a free tropical breakfast with a night’s stay and the tag line is “Practice Healthy Habits.” But I don’t think anyone is talking about fruit here. Who knew a granny apple could get so fresh? [The Hairpin] Keep reading »

15 Celebs Who’ve Run Marathons

This weekend was the ING New York City Marathon which I totally participated in … by giving a thumbs-up to a runner I saw later in the day. But seriously, congratulations to the participants, including Al Roker, Chilean miner Edison Peña, Howard Stern‘s sidekick Robin Quivers, and model/actress Veronica Webb. Roker said before the race, “Almost everybody’s bucket list includes running the ING New York City Marathon. Just the thought of being able to start this race gives me goose bumps. As does the fear that the weather might turn ugly.” The weather was pretty freezing, but the runners battled it out. [People] After the jump are some other celebs who’re way more athletic than I am and ran marathons or triathlons!

Why You Need To Buy That Party Dress — Right Now

Have you ever come across a gorgeous formal dress while shopping for, say, a pair of work chinos? Maybe it’s a little sequin shift hanging on the sale rack that catches your eye. Maybe there’s only one left and it’s in your size. Maybe the mere sight of it makes you squeal with glee, but your logical brain immediately reminds you that you are shopping for work chinos and you have no use for a sequin shift, even if it’s on sale and fits you perfectly and causes you to squeal involuntarily. Well, I’d like to respectfully disagree with your brain and tell you to buy that dress, and here’s why…

Emma Watson Shows Off New Haircut In Marie Claire Photo Spread

Emma Watson is showing off her new pixie cut in the December issue of Marie Claire. And some are already calling her the “New Twiggy,” while Joan Rivers said she looked like a lesbian (whatever that means) on E!’s “Fashion Police” this weekend. I really like the mature yet fun cut. What do you think? And check out another photo from Emma’s spread after the jump. Keep reading »
