Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Category Archives: Style
You know that line in Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back,” where he goes, “I like big butts and I cannot lie”? Well, I have a big butt and I cannot lie. I’ve always had a big butt. Ever since I can remember. To be clear, it’s not like I have trouble getting through doorways, but there is some serious junk in my trunk. It has been referred to as a “bubble butt.” There was a time in my life when I lived in California when I was described as having an “LA face and an Oakland booty” (er, if you don’t understand, it’s a California thing). And I’ve certainly had my share of butt-related catcalls, random shoutings out of car windows, and general ongoing butt commentary. It’s kind of like my butt is a spectacle. Keep reading »
I’ll be honest — I always feel a little ridiculous when I go to the gym. There I am, walking on the treadmill, in between the buff dude pumping iron and the impeccably toned woman running effortlessly on a steep incline; it seems brutally obvious what a workout novice I am. Even in yoga, where I feel more at home, embarrassing moments occur: the occasional, sudden bout of audible gas, toppling over while attempting a fairly easy pose. There may have even been a queef once, when descending from shoulder stand. In short, Madonna, I am not. After the jump, a few of my fellow Frisky staff members share their workout bloopers — share yours in the comments and I’ll pick the best ones for a roundup next week! Keep reading »
“Clueless” might just be the greatest movie of our time because it’s one of the most iconic pop culture references shared by both Generation Y and Generation X. And OK, yeah, I maybe wrote a 20-page term paper on the movie for my senior semiotics seminar, so it’s clear I’m obsessed. (Loser!) But, here is some of the most rad news I’ve heard in a while: Calvin Klein is remaking the dress Cher Horowitz wore on her date to the dance with Christian. The sad news: It costs $916. At the same time, this kind of makes me want to start a campaign for someone to reproduce the entire “Clueless” wardrobe. Keep reading »
Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
Today’s challenge: If you had to get a tattoo on your butt, and had only the choice between inking yourself with your own name or your boyfriend’s name, which would it be? And we’re not talking any small affair here, we’re talking full-out designed cursive, preferably with a heart or dove motif. The boyfriend’s name might work out in the end if you stay together for life … but if you split up, you will then have to explain to every new guy you sleep with who Pauly D, Ronnie or “The Situation” is. (Sorry, couldn’t help it.) Put your own name on there, and it’s kind of like branding yourself, but also a good reminder should you ever find yourself so drunk you can’t remember your name. (Eek, we hope not!) And to those readers who may already have their guy’s name or their own name tattooed down there, you can still play because you’re awesome.

Everyone loves a great deal: a pair of shoes half off, a sample sale, or accessories that are buy one, get one free. But here’s a great reason why beauty shouldn’t always be about the price — or the deal. Jane Ubell-Meyer received what should have been a normal gel manicure, but after her experience with an inexperienced technician, she’s had to visit orthopedists, dermatologists, and chiropractors due to major pain through her thumb. It seems during her beauty treatment, the manicurist working on her nails slipped and cut Jane’s finger, then exposed the inside of her skin to chemicals, which later affected her nerves. Though everyone always thinks these situations can never happen to them, this is certainly a wake-up call to realize that when it comes to beauty and your own body, skimping to save a few dollars isn’t the answer. If you’re planning to get a gel manicure, watch out for these signs and make sure your technician is fully educated on how to perform the treatment … Keep reading »
