Totally Stylin’ Tattoos Barbie hit store shelves recently, and parents aren’t happy. What’s disturbing most parents is the “tattoo gun” that comes with each doll and allows children to put temporary tattoos on Barbie, her clothes, and themselves. “Now she’s teaching our little girls how to apply tramp stamps. Next she’ll have her very own Barbie’s Hot Brothel. Way to go Mattel,” said one parent. So basically, tattoos lead to prostitution? As someone who played with Barbie dolls until I was 13, is an adult collector, and has six-soon-to-be-seven tattoos, I’m rather offended. Keep reading »
I have great and not-so-great design news. First, the good news:
H&M is finally going the way of their Netherlands-neighbors, IKEA, and rolling out its home line in stores across Europe. H&M zeroed in on three separate color palettes: neutral, nautical (blues and reds with white) and neon/candy striped.
Personally, I’m all about the nautical (have I mentioned the 11 striped shirts and dresses I own? Yes, really.), so sign me up for some of those perfectly-striped navy bed linens!
But don’t get too excited about decking your place out H&M-style, because here’s the bad news: the H&M home decor line has yet to make it over to this side of the pond. But it’s coming, promise! In the meantime, race you to eBay… [WSJ] Keep reading »

Forget eye creams, wrinkle creams, Botox, and cosmetic surgery because Ageless Fantasy perfume will erase eight years from your age. Certain scents, according to the company, remind people of youth. In a study cited by Ageless Fantasy, people were shown photographs of models while smelling grapefruits. All the male participants guessed the models to be three to eight years younger. The fragrance combines mango, pomegranate, grapefruit, jasmine, and musk because the company’s research found that 15 men thought these fruit smells were youthful, whereas the jasmine and musk smelled modern. In case you need further proof that people can smell your age, a study of only 22 people showed that women over 40 produce twice the amount of a particular pheromone associated with age. Is it just me or does all this “proof” sound bogus? Keep reading »

The bad ass-ness of a biker jacket, the comfort of a sweatshirt — sounds awesome to us! This bright blue, fleece sweater jacket from Silence & Noise is perfect for the impending spring weather, and would look great roughing up a structured dress or warming up a denim mini and T-shirt. The only negative? Your rejected cardigans will be sad. [$68, UrbanOutfitters.com] Keep reading »
Normally, I like one thing about people’s outfits — sometimes two things. But I adore ever single thing about this girl’s outfit. In fact, I’d like to break into her house and steal it from her closet. [Weardrobe] Keep reading »
Pole dance, chair dance, and striptease are fun ways to workout, but let’s be real, you aren’t going to use these moves to entice your guy no matter what Flirty Girl Fitness promises. I can just see my BF bursting into hysterics as I try to do the Cat Crawl Push-up or Goddess Rising ab routine while wearing lingerie. Instead, these fitness DVDs would go well with your girlfriends and some cocktails for a night of laughs and sex talk. And when it’s time to get your guy excited just be yourself and save the aerobics, spinning and twirling for a professional.
