Many moons ago, when I went to summer camp, getting ready for the excursion meant a trip to Marshall’s for a new swimsuit. If the New York Times Style section is to be believed (which I am not saying it is: honestly, sometimes this shit is unbelievable) some tweens and teens prep for camp more… READ MORE »
The only images that I can foresee after not washing my hair for five weeks are masses of oil dripping down my shoulders, lice, and/or the emergence of unwashed dreadlocks.

Look, I went to a women’s college (Mount Holyoke!) for a year, and I saw a lot of hairy things. I don’t judge. But for myself, I choose to shave as often as I am in the shower, which is just about every day. I understand that not everyone is like this, however, and in… READ MORE »
We’ve done some terrible things to our eyebrows in the past, but in recent years we’ve learned the key to great brows is leaving them alone. The less plucking, waxing and tweezing you do, generally, the better. Big brows are in –and hopefully are here to stay — and we’ve found some of the best… READ MORE »

Despite what you might assume about a glamourous ladyblog editor such as myself, I do not live a particularly rock star lifestyle. Sure, Richard Simmons, a fellow “Today Show” guest (!!!) noted that I was pretty and must be intimidating to men and, yes, sometimes I get sent free makeup to try, but my lifestyle… READ MORE »
My blond hair shows even the slightest bit of oiliness at the roots, so I’m a little neurotic about having clean hair. And by “a little neurotic” I mean at the first sign of oil I’m jumping in the shower, lathering up and screaming, “Out, damned grease!” Lady Macbeth-style. I’ve tried dry shampoo, and it’s… READ MORE »
My fairly new boyfriend Todd was a nice-enough looking guy with some questionable grooming habits. I tried to tell myself that these minor, easily fixable flaws shouldn’t influence how I felt about him.
But instead of gazing into Todd’s eyes, I found myself staring at his nose hair, fixated. Brownish-grey tufts looking like… READ MORE »
Usually I find The New York Times Style section to be embarrassingly behind the times. Recent articles include trend pieces on people playing Big Buck Hunter at bars and the popularity of Twitter hashtags. “What’s next? An article about this new TV show called ‘Jersey Shore’?” I am prone to joking.
However, for the… READ MORE »
It has recently come to my attention that perhaps I am not as concerned about the cleanliness of my anus as I should be. See, in the last few weeks, I feel like the universe has been trying to tell me that keeping my chocolate starfish pristine should be higher on my list of priorities. READ MORE »

“It’s really awesome for me that you’re not obsessed with showering every day,” my new boyfriend remarked recently. I looked at him somewhat surprised. “Well, then I don’t have to either,” he explained.
See, I’m a “shower every other day” kind of girl, with the occasional whore’s bath thrown in when necessary. It’s not… READ MORE »
I’m going to introduce a new little game around here. Let’s call it: “Guess the Publication.” I’ll post a quote and you guess which major print or online publication it’s pulled from. Sound fun? Good. Here’s the first one:

Ever wear the same thing a couple days in a row? Claudia Schiffer does. Last week, she was spotted wearing the same outfit on Nov. 3 and 4 as she took her children to school. Now, there are number of reasons why someone would choose to wear the same clothes for two days — for… READ MORE »
An interesting article out of Psychology Today about the fairly recent trend of bikini waxing and how it’s affecting male and female sexual relations. Sex therapist and psychiatrist Stephen Snyder, M.D. writes, “Among many young men that I see in treatment, the sight of a woman’s pubic hair produces the same revulsion that in my… READ MORE »
Oh, science, we love you! Why? Because some bunch of pervy scientists decided that studying the pubic hair-grooming habits of women was somehow a viable scientific pursuit. A new study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine examined the pubic particulars of women. The findings: “Women reported a diverse range of pubic hair-grooming practices.” No duh. READ MORE »
