Eat this all you young, hot 20-somethings. According to a new survey, women are at the peak of their appeal at age 31. Why? Well, because aside from still having their good looks, they possess the X-factor that only comes with age: confidence. The thought is that by the age of 31, a woman has let go of insecurities and feels comfortable in her own skin. This includes having a more authentic sense of style and radiating a feeling of beauty.

What is it you have not done that you will regret not doing?’ A midlife crisis—I think we all go through something, it’s inevitable, it’s unavoidable.

And yet today, I’ve heard about two projects that have me all the way to giddy.
First up, the movie “Mommy & Me.” Sure, it sounds like an ‘80s aerobics video aimed at girls under the age of five, but it’s actually a movie that sounds kind of amazing. This flick will be a mother/daughter comedy starring Meryl Streep and Tina Fey — which is, um, genius! The movie is basically only a zygote at this point.

We’ve done a post about maintaining pretty feet. This is not that post. This, rather, is a guide to going apes**t on your feet once you’ve let them get to what seems like a point of no return. Having recently pumiced my own mangled extremities half to death and come out alive, I’m not unlike a war hero in the battle for more lovely toes. Click through if you know what I’m talking about when I mention blisters, band-aid buildup, and the sort of dry, dirty skin not even a mother could love. Keep reading »
