I know that water’s really good for you, but seriously, I hate drinking straight water. As a Jew, I was raised not with glasses of water or milk at the dinner table, but with seltzer — delicious glasses of carbonated water — that is somehow the best thirst quencher known to man. I love seltzer, but I hate buying bottles of it at the store, because it seems foolish to cart around tubs of water, and also wasteful. Enter the Sodastream Jet Starter Kit, which allows you to make your own seltzer — or cola, or Italian sodas — at home. It may have a high initial price, but it’s worth its weight in refreshing carbonated water, for sure.

The truth is out: Thanks to a little comparative research by our friends at Brokelyn, we found out what the rates and benefits are for working at some of the most popular retail spots. Anthropologie? Sales associates start at anywhere between $9 and $11 an hour and get 40-percent discounts on apparel, 25 percent on home, and no discount on sale items. American Apparel employees make between $9 and $10 an hour to start as a cashier, and assistant managers only make a dollar more. Employees get 50-percent off everything in the store. The downside? They have to work for Dov Charney. Victoria’s Secret employees make minimum wage (which is dependent upon the state) and get 20-percent discounts to start, while Abercrombie & Fitch employees also toil away for minimum wage but receive 40-percent discounts on merch. Abercrombie & Fitch merch, but still.
Of course, that’s just a small sampling of the retail opportunities out there. So tell us: what’s the inside story on working retail in your town? [Brokelyn] Keep reading »
This Danish Elle magazine cover model (the one on the right) seems to possess quite an amazing neck. Perhaps she’s one of those special giraffe girls, born with an especially long retractable spine. Or, more likely, she’s just been Photoshopped within an inch of her life. [Photoshop Disasters] Keep reading »
I feel like you and I got off on the wrong foot. Or, at least we would have, if you had feet. You’re just a color so that wasn’t really the correct phrase to use. But here’s the thing… Keep reading »

Model (who just happens to be Holly Madison): Yep! Aren’t they cute?
Me: Well, I’m not sure if cute is the right word… Keep reading »
