Some of us were born with those wonderful genes which keep us looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, even on one hour of sleep. I am not one of those people. The worst compliment any guy ever gave me was that he “loved the dark circles under my eyes.” I wanted to crawl in a hole and… READ MORE »

My little tea time routine involves brewing some vanilla chai, putting on some chill music, eating a square (or three) of dark chocolate, and flipping through a fashion magazine. It’s totally relaxing, but you know what’s missing? Mr. T glaring at me from the side of my teapot. Yep, that would really take the whole… READ MORE »

I’d had enough with drugstore moisturizers until I found the heavenly Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer. This little blessing in a bottle was just calling out to my acne-inflamed face. After using the moisturizer for the last four months, I have noticed how few breakouts I now have, how much the size of my inflammations… READ MORE »

I like to think of my sartorial sensibility as a delicate balance between what’s lovely and girlish and what’s, well, kind of rough around the edges; for every piece in my wardrobe that’s lacy, silk, or floral, there’s a pair of black leather boots just waiting to be worn with it. For the girl —… READ MORE »

Did Lil’ Wayne know about these humanly lollies when he sang his infamous lyrics, “she licks me like a lollipop?” Maybe instead of wanting to lick the rapper, Wayne’s featured woman would be interested in sucking on some other body parts. Think Geek’s Gory Body Parts set includes four non-genital members, including the watermelon brain,… READ MORE »

As we settle deeper into fall and winter, it’s inevitably time to take stock of your tights options. If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a rather extensive collection of somewhat ratty, ripped and worn out stockings in dire need of replacement. And that’s why I’m so happy that there’s a new service, for people… READ MORE »

Maybe you’re mean, or maybe you’re just sassy. Maybe it’s Monday morning and you haven’t gotten your caffeine intravenously yet (three shots, please). Maybe it’s Saturday night and you feel like going to a trashy dive with your girlfriends without being approached by the lechers that generally come with it. Hell, maybe it’s Wednesday, and… READ MORE »

Lately I’ve been looking at my closet and feeling an overwhelming sense of “I have nothing to wear!” Luckily though, I just found the magical garment that will instantly fill the gaping void in my wardrobe: a Chavril engagement T-shirt, which celebrates the upcoming Canadian royal wedding of ChAvril LaKroeger, aka Avril Lavigne and Chad… READ MORE »

Contradictory combinations often end up making the most sense. My nose was initially confused by OLO’s Violet/Leather perfume oil. Inspired by the Mark Twain quote, “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it,” as the company describes the scent, “It smells like violet, it smells like leather.” Indeed,… READ MORE »

I love cooking spicy food and throw jalapeños in just about anything that makes sense — Tacos! Chili! Eggs! — but nearly every time I do, I manage to add a little heat to my nose and eyes as well. But with this awesome jalapeno corer, I can avoid touching the extra spicy bits with my… READ MORE »

Just one look at this gorgeous wool and leather satchel has me chomping at the bit for a weekend road trip. I’ll wear a baggy sweater and gaze out the window at the blur of colorful leaves, and I don’t even care where the destination is, as long as there’s hot chocolate. Aaaahhh, fall, I’ve… READ MORE »

Newsflash: your fall wardrobe is simply not complete without a pair of ankle boots. Okay, my fall wardrobe won’t be complete without a pair of ankle boots — but I don’t want to spend a mess of dough on them.

This cardigan combines the best thing about fall fashion (slouchy cardigans!) with the best thing about summer fashion (bright colors!), which makes it the perfect transition piece to bridge the seasons.

NW, the title of Zadie Smith’s new novel, refers to northwest London, specifically the neighborhood of Willesden, the area where Smith grew up. Smith revisits this multi-cultural neighborhood, which served as the setting for her debut novel, White Teeth (one of my all-time favorites). “This is the story of a city. The northwest corner of… READ MORE »

At the risk of sounding like a grumpy old man, I miss cassette tapes. I miss their fuzzy sound quality. I miss the weight of them in my hand. I miss organizing them alphabetically in my bottom dresser drawer. I miss waiting by the radio like a lion ready to pounce on the “record” button… READ MORE »
