Many women find it necessary to dye their hair darker when fall hits because light hair just doesn’t look good with pale, winter skin. But making a drastic change like this can be a difficult decision. To help, we’ve put together a slideshow of celebrities who have gone from dark to light or light to dark. Find one with your complexion and see which hair color suits you. And if you still can’t decide, maybe you should just go for a happy medium brown. Keep reading »
The weekend is the perfect time to catch up on all the TV you’ve missed. Bravo will air marathons of “Project Runway” and “Rachel Zoe Project” just in time for the season finales next week. I’ll watch “Clean House: The Messiest Home in the Country” on Saturday to make myself feel less guilty about cleaning my own home. (I’m not really messy anyway.) Sunday continues to be the best for primetime viewing, especially the 10 o’clock hour. Keep reading »
The video debuted tonight on “20/20″ and aside from the annoying, weird limo driver scene towards the end, I like it! I missed Britney y’all. I really did. Even though I thought it was bad ass when she shaved her head, I’m glad her hair has grown back and her meds have kicked in and she seems all calm. And I’m glad that despite the ups and down, Brit still manages to make music that makes me want to dance around my apartment in my underwear. Keep reading »

Yesterday I was chatting with our Mind Of Man about this very subject — he believes that woman, in fact, are generally the ones who want the lights on and that men (particularly him) want the lights off (or at least significantly dimmed). Personally, I don’t really care, though I would prefer not to knock off a lamp in the throes of passion because it’s so dark I can’t see my hand in front of my face. But what about you?

You won’t be seeing Yaz birth control ads on TV anymore — or at least not the ones that the pharmaceutical company Bayer has been using. On October 3, the FDA issued a warning letter to the company, telling Bayer its ads overstate the benefits of Yaz. While the drug is approved for symptoms related to treatment of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, or PMDD, it is not approved for the treatment of the less serious premenstrual syndrome, or PMS. Similarly, Yaz is approved for the treatment of moderate acne, but the FDA said the ad suggests it is approved for acne of all severities. Just another reason not believe everything you hear on TV.

In an effort to shed last winter’s extra weight before this winter starts, we’re trying to cut back on second and third servings of everything, which is about as hard a task as Sarah Palin giving up Moose burgers. We think these gorgeous dinner plates may help, though. Their patterns and colors are so awesome, we won’t be tempted to pile more food on them. Well, in theory, anyway.

Same-sex marriage was legalized in Connecticut today when the state Supreme Court issued a 4-3 decision at 11:30 this morning saying that same-sex couples cannot be denied the freedom to marry according to the state’s constitution. Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell said she will abide by the decision even though she believes a marriage should only be between a man and a woman. “The Supreme Court has spoken,” Rell said. “I do not believe their voice reflects the majority of the people of Connecticut. However, I am also firmly convinced that attempts to reverse this decision — either legislatively or by amending the state Constitution – will not meet with success.” [Boston Globe] Keep reading »
Tracy Clark-Flory wrote an interesting piece for Salon’s Broadsheet this week about the increasing number of sex writers facing termination at major newspapers and websites like Fleshbot and the Village Voice, saying, “These are scary times for sex writers.” Our own Susannah Breslin says, “Sometimes people become sex writers because they screw a lot, not necessarily because they can write well.” With that in mind, we’ve compiled a short list of some sex writers who DO write well and should be on your radar, recession lay (offs) be damned!

If you like demure pencil skirts and classic pumps, you’ll love Newport News, the catalog/online retailer that always seems to be having sale! And if you’re attending a wedding, there lots of appropriate dresses, including this black one with pyramid beads at the waist. Personally, I’m a big fan of Newport News’ round toe pumps, which are just $28 each (subtract $8 if you buy two pairs) — good luck deciding which of the 12 colors to get. Keep reading »
