This past weekend, I did something really weird. I drove with several friends to Toronto on Friday night and came back on Sunday. NBD, except Toronto is a 10-hour trip from NYC, so about a third of my weekend was spent in a car. The trip taught me a lot: boys in punk bands talk exclusively about other punk bands and horror movies; Sheetz is the best convenience store-cum-gas-station chain on the planet; and jeans and boots are really not that comfortable after a few hours in the car. Don’t make my mistake! While you won’t necessarily be able to get your friends to shut up about John Carpenter movies (and really, why would you?), you can plan a better driving outfit than mine.

Getting sexy doesn’t require your ensemble to be tight and revealing. Subtly will get you much farther in the long run. But don’t think your sexy look has to be (gasp!) boring. Everly’s Bedrock Dress is both visually interesting with its graphic print and sexy with a plunging V-back and exposed zipper. Yet it leaves much to the imagination. Everly is a favorite amongst celebrities, but get this — the Bedrock Dress retails for less than $50 — which leaves you room to splurge on a pair of complementary (and bitchin’) platform pumps!
Artist, Christine Chin created this line of kitchenware entitled Sentient Kitchen. “While it is the nature of the human ego to cast suspicion on a challenge to human intellect, Sentient Kitchen products offer a non-threatening environment to explore the benefits of smarter, more sensitive solutions to our daily dining needs,” says Chin in her project statement. Hmmm. My ego is still telling me not to sip tea out of a hairy ear. [Buzzfeed]
It’s easy to go bonkers around Halloween when every nine-year-old girl on the street dressed like a two-dollar hooker. I find that unnerving as well. But overly-sexy little girls’ costumes get the lion’s share of the attention where there really is a wide range of inappropriate costumes out there. Take, for instance, this Sexy Osama Bin Laden Costume. Too soon, guys. T-o-o s-o-o-n.
After the jump, 14 more costumes that are not for the easily offended. (Which begs the question, why are you on the Internet anyway?) Keep reading »
Does the skin around your eyes sag and cucumber slices and cold spoons just aren’t doing the trick? Don’t worry, wrinkle face, there’s a crazy, bizarre (and likely bulls**t) gadget for that! The Eye Slack Haruka is basically a vibrator for your eyes which, using its highly technologically advanced buzzing and heating powers, vows to take “years off you while lessening those tell-tell weary signs of age.” The downside is it makes you look like a jackass, but who cares? Now, I’m no scientist (although I did get extra credit in high school chemistry because my lap reports were so artistic), but it seems to me that the vibration would actually further loosen skin. Plus, I thought you needed cold temperatures to tighten skin, not heat. I remain unconvinced that this product will do anything about my puffy, sagging undereyes, but at $132 I hope it would at least give me an orgasm. [Japan Trend Shop via Gizmodo]
