Join me — well, in spirit, from your own sunset-watching location — by stirring up a yummy Stripey Shandy. Get the recipe after the jump! Keep reading »
Warning: I will try and refrain from making continuous size and girth puns while writing this post.
“Fifty Shades Of Grey” wine has been on the market for a few years now, but E.L. James, the author of the book series, has upped the ante for those of us who fancy a … bigger specimen. Now, E.L.’s very own Red Satin blend, inspired by the romance and passion between the trilogy’s main characters, Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, will be offered in a limited edition, 3-liter bottle. Equal in volume to four standard wine bottles, the “Fifty Shades of Grey” Red Satin Collector’s Edition includes a hand-engraved bottle painted by artisans in Napa Valley, California, and is hand-dipped in a red hot wax seal. FANCY. Keep reading »
They say “The higher the heel, the closer to God.” But I say, “The higher the heel, the farther you fall when you trip in those heels and bust ass.” Stilettos are sexy as hell; they’ll give you the illusion of legs for days and can even boost your self-confidence, but the price of beauty ain’t cheap.

Here are 13 pain-in-the-ass problems all too familiar to the heel-wearing kind. Keep reading »

Pull together her entire look with the items after the jump! Keep reading »

I like to pretend that my favorite time of year is summer, because if I don’t, I’ll spend the whole summer lying face-up on the sidewalk in my underwear, crying about how cruel the universe is to have created humidity like we had a few weeks ago. I know, I know. We don’t get it as bad here in Chicago as some other places in the country, but I have a hard time tolerating it.
The big secret is that fall — the like two weeks of it that we generally get here, although autumn is shaping up pretty well this year — is my absolute favorite time of year. It’s back-to-school season! So many different produce items are in season right now! I can leave my apartment without instantly dying, which isn’t true in summer or winter! Halloween is coming up! It’s liberating! Keep reading »
