Look, we know they are expensive. Think of these as an ULTIMATE crave, one of those completely impractical but totally drool-inspiring items that you would buy if you were Bill Gates, only a fashionable version. But even if you can’t afford these boots (we can’t), a lesson can be learned from them and that is that gray and hot pink are one of those color/neutral combinations created perfectly by the heavens. If you’ve never paired them, PLEASE DO. [$725, Botkier] Keep reading »
“We found a great rhythm. Contractions started kicking in. I sat there with her, right between her legs. We got tribal on it, we danced to it! I was DJ-ing this Brazilian music.” — Matthew McConaughey, on the birth of his son Levi. Keep reading »
Our usual “Hot Outta The Oven” chef, Teri Tsang Barrett, is on vacay this week, so our lovely intern Annika stepped up with this recipe for a take on a Greek salad. Clearly this one should not be hot outta the oven.
Since, the Food and Drug Administration announced last week that tomatoes are safe to eat again, I thought this recipe for a tomato salad with feta and cucumbers sounded refreshing on a hot summer evening. Tomatoes contain powerful antioxidants, like vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene and lycopene. This salad is not only healthy, but would be perfect for a picnic date, just add the Sangria or beverage of choice. Keep reading »
Someone in Milford, MA, has a lot of time on their hands and the desire to annoy everyone in town. This person is leaving dozens of pairs of pantyhose, almost always black and queen sized, are frequently left near a school bus stop. Some pairs are new, some used. One day, Milford resident Laurie Warich picked up 43 pairs. The police are investigating the case, however, the only crime being committed is littering, and the city’s police department doesn’t have the resources to focus on the case. Shouldn’t they just ask drugstore cashiers if anyone’s bought them out of pantyhose lately? [AP via CBS News] Keep reading »
While watching Project Runway‘s season premiere and the promo videos for tonight’s episode, we noticed that some of the contestants (and Heidi) have awesome personal style. Others, on the other hand, have questionable style. Now, this doesn’t mean the clothes they design are awful, but I think it does say something about a designer when he sports a rattail. After the jump, we judge Project Runway‘s style… Keep reading »
The sad, sad results of a national survey showed that about 3 percent of girls between 12 and 17 said they had been the victim of dating violence, which includes physical abuse, sexual assault, and being threatened with a weapon. In the same age group, 0.6 percent of boys said they’d been a victim.
According to the findings, certain factors, such as a history of stressful or traumatic events, seemed to put teens at great risk for dating violence, and older teenage girls were at greater risk than boys or younger girls. The last bit is interesting because it seems that as we get older, we should understand more about what is okay for people to do to us, and what crosses the line, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Either that, or the guys get more aggressive around that age, too. [Reuters] Keep reading »
Hair colorist to the stars, Rita Hazan, dishes out 10 rules for those lookin’ to go red.
1. Never pick a color that looks or sounds fake, like “Cherry Bomb.” Pick colors that are soft and natural.
2. Make sure you change your makeup; going red means making the necessary adjustments to your makeup!
3. As a redhead, it is also important to wear clothes that compliment your hair color. Fiery hair requires less details on clothing, you’re already making a bold statement with that color!
4. In the Fall and Winter, I suggest taking your red to a deeper, richer shade. Keep reading »
