Posters with inspirational photos and quotes about “success” and “teamwork” don’t make us want to work any harder.

Summertime is all about summer lovin’. How do you go get you some? By getting out of town. Here’s how we get frisky on vacation.

There’s some stiff competition, but the sluttiest Barbie of all time has just come out: Black Canary.

Lord knows your purse is filled with unnecessary items (oh what, like you think you really do need to carry around those two extra sweaters?). That said, it might be time to think about expansion. If you’re at least going to stuff your sack with extras, you might as well think about upgrading to a… READ MORE »

Bangs are cute and all, but they make wearing hats rather difficult. If you push them back into the hat, then you can’t take the hat off since your hair will be stuck in an awkward style, but if you leave them down, the bangs get plastered onto your forehead. That’s why someone invented the… READ MORE »

I’m the type of shopper who walks into a Gap and sees through the basic necessities to the wonderful fashion possibilities. In fact the last time The Gap had an item that I HAD to have was last year. I’m sure you remember the ruffle-front shirt dress that was all over ads last summer. Well,… READ MORE »

A dress with pockets is basically my most favorite thing ever. Previous to dresses with pockets (I think there was a lull in this trend between the 60’s and now), I had to always carry a frickin’ purse with me when I went out at night, but now I can show my keys and my… READ MORE »
