Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
I know it’s Halloween weekend and you’ve got costume parties to attend and sexy pirates to manhandle, but just in case you decide you need a break from all that teeth-rotting candy corn and ineffective fright tactics, you can always escape to the movies! Chances are, they’re probably going to be empty anyway except for the die-hard “Saw” fans. So now’s the perfect time to see “Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields” because it’s totally not Halloween-themed and if no one else is there, you can totally throw a little party and talk to the screen.

And when the show introduced a wretched new character in season 2, I hated her so much that I actually burst into tears one night while brushing my teeth. My boyfriend was confused, to say the least.
I could go on forever about all the reasons I think this show is awesome, but for the purposes of this post, let me just say that one of the my favorite things about it is the styling. I love the bright Miami colors and the distinct personal style of each character. Dexter always wears the same outfit when he’s in serial killer mode, so I thought in honor of Halloween weekend and my general obsession, I’d assemble a little inspiration board of how to get this look.

Elizabeth Somer, registered dietitian and author of Eat Your Way to Happiness, offered these tips for keeping both your diet and your checkbook balanced. Keep reading »
