Crave: The Jenna Bracelet

I’m not exactly clean cut…so when the J.Crew catalog comes for my roommate, I try to pretend like I don’t read it cover to cover when she’s asleep. Seriously, who could resist all that classic cashmere?! But something happened recently, and I’m finally ready to come out of the real closet: J.Crew is my secret fetish. Lately, I’ve been dreaming about their fantasy must-have piece for fall: the “Jenna” bracelet. I’ve never seen such a big hunk of gold in my whole life and I must have it! Luckily, the 12kt-plated chain is actually kind of cheap — 75 buckaroos! Now, I just have to make sure their shipping package is discreet and I’ll pick it up! [$75, J.Crew]

10 Favorite Dolls From Our Childhood

I was kind of obsessed with Barbie dolls when I was younger. Although I had over 50 Barbies, my mom knew we couldn’t leave a toy store without visiting the Barbie aisle. I didn’t get a new doll most of the time, but sometimes she would buy me a new Barbie outfit, which is just like getting a new doll. Anyone that wanted to buy me a gift knew that anything Barbie would delight me. I could play with my Barbies for hours on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, but on some rare occasions, I did play with baby dolls. For most girls dolls are a large part of childhood because dolls allow them to play at adult situations, like being a mother or having a career. Some women continue their doll play even as adults. We’re not longing for our childhoods, but every now and then we feel the pull of nostalgia, so we put together a list of our favorite dolls. Check out the list, as well as some classic commercials, after the jump. Keep reading »

Kim Kardashian Voted Off Dancing With The Stars

Kim Kardashian and her booty got booted on “Dancing with the Stars” last night, which greatly pleased me. She was a fish out of water on the dance floor. Sure, she said she’s “shy” and doesn’t have any dance experience, but she could have at least shown some expression on her face! Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was right when she told Kim: “There is something about you that I think is so appealing. Everybody is so attracted to watching you. We want you to do well.” People thought Kim would be able to dance well because of the way she looks, but maybe she never had to learn how to move like a sex goddess because men will drool all over her no matter what. Speaking of moves, do you think Kim’s dancing skills are a reflection of how she performs in the bedroom? Keep reading »

Do We Really Need To Know Who’s Googling Us?

It used to be you had to wait until you had ringing ears to know someone was thinking about you, but these days you can get an email alert any time someone Googles your name. Ziggs.com, a new social networking site, invites people to create profiles and promises to give them a top position in all search engines for $4.95 a month. Members get instant email notifications every time a visitor views their profiles via search engines like Google, even alerting them of the visitor’s location. This sort of thing just smacks of all kinds of wack, from encouraging rampant narcissism, to creating the modern day “waiting for his call” syndrome, as well as making people wonder about their exes way more than necessary.

Gardasil Required For Young Female Immigrants

If you’re a female U.S. citizen between 11 and 26 years old, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that you get the Gardasil vaccine; however, if you are a female foreigner trying to become a permanent resident of the country, it’s not just recommended you get the vaccine, it’s required. This isn’t because the U.S. government thinks that foreigners are going to infect our entire population with cervical cancer. A 1996 immigration law states that any vaccine recommended by the government for its citizens becomes mandatory for green-card applicants. Even the chairman of the CDC’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices didn’t realize this was the case when it recommended the vaccine to citizens. Keep reading »

Obama Camp Reportedly Seeks Rape Victim For Campaign Ad

According to an email obtained by Politico.com, the Obama campaign attempted to find a rape victim to cast in a campaign commercial that would allow the Democratic Presidential nominee to discuss his stance on related issues. According to Politico’s Jonathan Martin:

The Obama campaign wouldn’t detail the strategy behind finding an individual to discuss such a sensitive topic but did suggest the ad may be aimed at underscoring their candidate’s support for abortion rights and ongoing effort to retain those women who backed Hillary Clinton in the primary.

All this has led to discussion over whether seeking out a rape victim to tell her story in order to further a political agenda is appropriate. After the jump, some thoughts from Megan at Jezebel.com and Ann at Feministing.com, as well as my own gut reaction. Keep reading »

The Monogamist: What Marriage Feels Like

Well, I did it. A couple of weeks ago, I tied the knot. Got hitched. Became a ball and chain. And got my own ball and chain? People make it sound so weighty. When we got engaged, it did feel huge, like this gigantic life-altering decision that was so…permanent. And it is. I’m not saying it’s not. But you know what? It feels exactly the same as it did before. Yes, it’s still weird to refer to Andy as my husband, rather than boyfriend (never fiancé), and when I called our car insurance to tell them we’d gotten married, they sent us a $13.14 rebate check, which will buy us about four gallons of gas or a week’s worth of coffee, depending on our mood.
