The recipe for a perfectly done Tumblr blog: 1) Take two things that don’t have anything to do with each other and put them together. 2) Laugh at the perfect randomness. For example, this new Tumblr called “Game of Bridesmaids” which is, you guessed it, smarty pants, “Game of Thrones” meets “Bridesmaids.” Check out a few more after the jump, and the rest at the link!

You’re lucky, you have The Frisky to help you out of any and all crises, whether they be style-generated (can I wear socks with heels?) or relationship-oriented (Is it okay to have murderous feelings about my significant other after I trip over his shoes for the twelfth time?). But where do our guy friends go when they need an extra-serving of online advice, inspiration or distraction? We’ve got a new suggestion: A Gentleman’s Read, a website that helpfully gathers together top men’s fashion experts, style sites and good reads in one space. The site’s curators gathered material from sites like Gilt, Dezeen, Another Something and Protein to provide readers with everything from interviews with artisans to reviews of new clothing lines to must-have design trinkets. Think of it less like a blog, and more like a very convenient everything-and-the-kitchen-sink awesome dude education system. [A Gentleman's Read]
London-based blogger Susie Lau is the lady behind Susie Bubble, one of the first, and best, style blogs on the web. Susie’s imprint is all over the fashion world: You can find her in the front row at every fashion week, plus she’s constantly collaborating with designers and writes a style column for The Guardian. Recently, The Coveteur visited Susie and photographed her extensive and enviable closet — and we just had to share. Check out her full closet on their site.
We’ve been big fans of Kim France ever since she worked at Sassy magazine and invented this thing called Kim France Pants, which were pants that were to be worn under skirts and such. She worked at Sassy before going on to start Lucky. And then weirdly — just like her former co-conspirator Jane Pratt’s mag Jane before her – Lucky was taken over by Brandon Holley. Now France is back with a new project, titled Girls of a Certain Age, a blog aimed at women in their 30s and 40s. “I’m 48, but I’m an immature 48,” said France. “There are people in this city who work in creative businesses whose interests are still very youth-ish. They like rock music, looking cool, but they are not kids anymore. They don’t, you know, respond to crotch high skirts on a style blog, no matter how cute they look.” Mazel tov! [WWD]
Well, that’s all it takes to change my world, at least. The Tumblr blog, One Tiny Hand, is one tiny step for hands, one giant leap for mankind. Amelia alerted me to its existence this morning and I feel like Neil Armstrong when he first set foot on the moon. It’s a whole new universe. One Tiny Hand features famous people with, well, one tiny hand. The photoshop work is so exquisite and masterful. The images so … arresting. I can’t look away. I particularly enjoy this image of Kim Kardashian tucking her hair behind her ear with her tiny hand. Delightful. Click through to see a few more of my favorite tiny hand masterpieces.

Just as inexplicable as the recent obsession over Silly Bandz is the love for YouTube haul vlogs. Intrepid young “reporters” spend hours creating their own videos, where they simply show off their latest purchases, detailing the reasons they love or hate the new products, thanks to the magic of web cams and the vast world of the internet. Thrilling, we know. Joanna Coles, the editor-in-chief of Marie Claire, decided to put her own little jokey spin on the internet fad and methodically dumped the contents of her Celine bag to create her own haul vlog. She, quite seriously, discusses the fears she experienced while buying the purse, why she favors certain makeup brands, her excitement for the DVD she found at the bottom of her bag and proudly shows off the bookmark made by her son. It’s refreshing to see an editor of a magazine embrace the internet’s habits, while feeling free to appear just a little bit silly. We promise you’ll be amused, as well as shocked by just how many lipsticks she carries around on a daily basis. Keep reading »
Every Monday night, the People’s Revolution team overtakes Twitter, sending out reminders, hilarious side commentary, and quips to fans about their reality TV show. One lover of all things Kelly decided that it wasn’t enough to simply watch the show — this person had to create a blog about it. So F**k Yea Kell on Earth was born. It’s a teeny newborn of a blog right now, with just a few posts, but the premise is as addicting as her reality show. Find random pictures of Kelly and her eccentric team (Skinner and Andrew), pair one of those with a quote from the show, and post away. Welcome to your new Tumblr addiction.

While you count down the days until the new season of “Jersey Shore,” here’s a blog to keep you entertained — Snookie Shop. Those with Photoshop and silhouetting talents cut and paste everyone’s favorite reality show whiner into random locations — movie posters, alongside former President Clinton, and even still shots from movies like “The Hangover.” We especially appreciate the very guidette outfit that she’s sporting in each image: a hot pink track jacket paired with liquid leggings and Uggs. And though we’re itching for a bit of sartorial variety, this “Sex and the City” poster couldn’t be more perfect. [Snookie Shop] Keep reading »
No need to annoy all your girlfriends with that story of what happened between you and that hipster DJ, Sorry-Mom.com is a website that let’s any woman spill her tale of woe and whoa. Page after page, women pour over their crappy sexual encounters. Each story comes complete with the dude’s picture (Bonus! Though his eyes are always blacked out, to “protect” privacy) and a blurb. It’s the kind of dirt that’ll make a girl smirk with empathy! With a vicious bent like trash talking a guy’s Johnson, I expect the site to be run by a spurned divorcee ala Tricia “Crazy Eyes” Walsh-Smith of Park Avenue. Bitching about boys and literally hitting them below the belt seems like such a mean girl thing to do. And it begs the question, why isn’t there a version of this site so guys can rant? I’ve heard some things about ladies that made my jaw drop. But, would a man ever care enough to write a paragraph that admits to their broken heart, then diss the chick, add a pic and email it in, just for the satisfaction of ranting? Do guys seek emotional revenge….and at the grandiose level of the internet? May be we should all be grateful that so far, the answer is no.
Well if you feel like laughing like you just don’t care, here are our favorite tales from “I Bang The Worst Dudes” after the jump… Keep reading »
Bloggers spend a lot of time alone, scanning the Internet from dank, cold, dark basements. Frankly we expect them to be, with the exception of ourselves, kind of fugs. Wrong! Your hot interweb fantasy commentators are actually totally hot! Rangit.com has assembled 140 Faces of Well Known Bloggers You Don’t Want To Miss, or BILF’s (Bloggers I’d Like to…you know…) as we call ‘em. And let me tell you, they are as funny and smart as they are sexy! Of course all the girl writers are great looking….but some of those young nerd studs could be centerfolds. We recommend our favorites, after the jump…
