Earlier this week, Ami posted about a recent article that said it’s becoming more common for women to have the occasional drink while pregnant. We polled you on what your drinking policy would be when you’re pregnant and over 4,700 of you responded. I suspect the results were shocking no matter how you voted, in that it was basically split down the middle. Over 48.5 percent of you indicated that you would drink while pregnant anywhere from only “on special occasions” (22.85 percent) to “every now and then” (24.1 percent), with 1.5 percent (74 of you!) vowing to imbibe even more regularly — though I hope you’re joking (as we were) about “passing the smokes.” Meanwhile, over 51 percent of you said you would have a zero tolerance alcohol policy while pregs. So what gives? Keep reading »
The new season of “Dancing with the Stars” starts on September 20th. And while ABC has not made an official announcement about which B-, C-, D-listers we will be seeing paso doble and rhumba, plenty of rumors are circulating over the interwebs. The latest: Us Weekly tells us that David Hasselhoff has signed on for the show. Yes, that was the sound of the population of Germany marking their calendars.
Also rumored to be on the show … Keep reading »

For all the ladies out there who have ever had issues with UTIs, here is my story and experience with treatment. Feel free to weigh in on what you’ve found that works for you (or doesn’t).
I’m beginning to think my vagina is a lemon.
On most fronts, it actually functions quite normally. Yet, there’s one stinging flaw—it’s particularly prone to urinary tract infections. Here’s the deal: no sex, no problem (except for that I’m depressed that I’m not having it). Sex, and I’m often in a world of pain (which I negotiate for a few seconds of ecstasy). Keep reading »
It’s obvious enough that “old-fashioned” guidebooks won’t help if you’re trying to pack light. No matter what your destination is, there are about a million travel iPhone apps out there for you to choose from, but we prefer Wallpaper’s City Guides. Why? For starters, we prefer to cut down on costs by not depleting our data allowance while abroad. These guides are all packed in there, so you don’t need a 3G network to access the info. And it’s only $3.99, which is less than you’d spend on any book.
One of life’s little pleasures: spritzing yourself with your perfume, the one that you’ve really adopted as your smell. The problem with this is that perfumes are generally expensive (unless you somehow enjoy dousing yourself in Eau de Britney each day). After wearing the relatively affordable Ralph by Ralph Lauren scent since my teenage years, I recently came across a fragrance I absolutely fell in love with—Byredo’s “Blanche.” But at $200 a bottle, it’s not something I’m going to drop down for. So instead, I’ve savored my itty bitty samples and feared the day of the last drop. My prayers, however, have been answered: The Perfumed Court is a service that decants scents and repackages them into 1-15 ml spray bottles and roll-ons. You’ll find top brands like Pucci, Chanel, and Jo Malone, along with lower-level names like Fresh or even … Paris Hilton. In case you just want to give that a try. [The Perfumed Court] Keep reading »
