11 Adorable Fruit Babies

It’s baby season. I mean, fruit season. I mean, I didn’t realize there were so many fruit babies being born out there. The word is that people bring fruit babies to baby showers. But isn’t that kind of creepy to eat a baby?  Oh well, who am I to judge? These babies are making me… More »

Is it already that time again? I always look forward to the big fashion weeks, even though the shows run counter to the current season — it’s sweltering outside, but the promise of fall/winter fashion still thrills me.

10 Alternative Engagement Rings For The Unconventional Bride

Engagement rings are so boring. They’re pretty, sure, and sparkly too, and exorbitantly expensive, and every girl dreams of one from Tiffany, and it has three diamonds in it, and this is the shape of the diamond, and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Don’t you want this thing you have to wear on… More »

Must Haves: 10 Summer Tanks Suitable For Work And Play

Rising temperatures call for clothing as minimal as possible while still remaining (mostly) decent for public viewing.

When these… More »


12 Famous Women Who’ve Used Their Sexuality (To Get Ahead)

The combination of tits and drive can, apparently, cause the internet to crash.

For The .2 Percent: The Most Crazy Expensive Skincare Products On The Market

One of my favorite hobbies is irresponsibly throwing cash, caution, and common sense to the wind, essentially handing off my dignity in return for high-end beauty products, but even my cosmetics-grubbing jaw drops at some of the prices on the stuff. Just the other day my very own father texted me to say, “Have you… More »


Father’s Day Gift Guide: Dadcessories For The Modern Man

So Father’s Day is this weekend, as well as my dad’s birthday, and the only thing he says he wants is flip-flops. Fortunately, my dad is a pretty easy guy to shop for, because you could get him anything and he’d still feign like he loves it. Socks! Off-brand polo shirts! Gloves! No puppies, though… More »


The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Chanel’s “Little Black Jacket” Exhibit Opening

Chanel events always, without fail, draw an extraordinarily dressed crowd — Karl Lagerfeld, after all, only associates with the most fabulous of people (and yes, the same standard applies to his choice in pets).

Au Revoir, Cannes: The Best Hair & Makeup From The 2012 Cannes Film Festival

Step Away From The Sink! The Best (And Worst) Of Dry Shampoos

Dry shampoo, while not exactly a new commodity (drugstore brand Psssssst! has been around for god knows how long; seriously, I Googled it and couldn’t find out), has received more hype than ever in the past few years.
