A university in Germany is going out of its way to help its IT students get laid. Potsdam University south of Berlin is offering IT engineering students a new “flirting course,” which is meant to prepare students “with the social skills needed to succeed both in their private life and their work life,” according to a spokesman of the university. The course, which is part of a master’s degree program, will teach the 440 enrolled students body language, public-speaking, stress management and presentation skills, as well as how to write flirtatious text messages and emails, navigate a party with finesse and cope with rejection. Philip von Senftleben, the teacher of the course, said his job will be to teach his students how to “get someone else’s heart beating fast while yours stays calm.” Something tells me some of the IT geeks are gonna need more than a course on flirty texting to get someone else’s heart beating fast.

You may not be talking during the movie, but there’s a lot to be said for body language. Keep reading »
I am so in love with Eva Mendes’ entire look — from the Dior gown, to the amazing statement necklace and teardrop earrings.
Recently, I committed the ultimate relationship taboo: I told a man who wanted to spend the rest of his life with me that I couldn’t marry him. Even worse, I broke off my engagement at a time in my life when many of my close girlfriends are blissfully picking out wedding dresses and drafting tender vows of love to their soon-to-be husbands. Welcome to your late twenties, ladies.
During my engagement purgatory phase, when I’d finally gathered enough courage to share my indecision with a few confidantes, I was met with a collection of theories on how I would know if my fiancé was “the one” or not.

Drew Barrymore in John Galliano for Dior — I actually like the dress, but the hair is appalling.
When we gave you tips for thrift store shopping last month, our experts advised you to stay away from clothes that have a certain stink to them, because the smell probably won’t go away. Well, Janie Bryant, the costume designer for “Mad Men,” says otherwise. Her trick for getting rid of that musty, old-clothes stench is to mix one part vodka with two parts water in a spray bottle and douse the offending article with the mixture. “It works every time—that’s the power of vodka for you,” Bryant said. And we believe anything this woman says. After all, she’s managed to make pen necklaces popular, a feat not accomplished since the TV show “Ghostwriter” in the ’90s. [Valet] Keep reading »
