Baby, It’s Consensual Outside

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is the most squirmy of Christmas songs. It’s supposed to be a cute duet between a woman and a man who wants her to stay longer, clearly written during a time period when a woman’s “reputation” for not having casual sex truly mattered. As such, the lyrics are pretty date rapey,…

7 Colorful Alternatives To Black Friday

Black Friday seems to get crazier and crazier every year, and while I’ve gotta give props to my friends who are willing to brave the angry mobs in the hopes of scoring a sweet deal, I think that gloriously bloated day after Thanksgiving has the potential to be a lot more than the frightening consumerist orgy…

10 Ways To Make Holiday Travel A Little More Fabulous

The phrase “holiday travel” instantly conjures up images of endless lines, delayed flights, cranky babies, and even crankier adults. We know that taking a trip during the hectic holiday season will never be the easiest endeavor, but there’s no reason you can’t make the experience a bit less hellish, and a bit more fabulous (yes, really!).

Fall Beauty How-To: Kristen Stewart’s Golden Smoky Eye

We’re reaching the point of the year wherein I refuse to leave my bed at any and all costs because it is so damn cold. There unfortunately aren’t too many upsides to late fall as far as I’m concerned, aside from pretty scarves, outerwear, and, like, wool tights, but none of these things are enough…

Men Are Merry-Less in Sexist Christmas Ad

Add one more advertisement to the slew of commercials stereotyping men and women. Asda, a British supermarket, debuted a new ad for the Christmas holidays, featuring a mother running herself ragged, creating the perfect Christmas for her family. Because, you know, that’s what all women do.

A Cookie Cake That Accurately Describes November’s Mood

Is it already Christmas where you live? It seems December 25 comes earlier and earlier each year. As a Jew, I kind of love it, because hello, cookies, pine tree smell and holiday carols. But as a critic of capitalism, it’s kind of the worst. Apparently this cake was made by a disgruntled bakery employee…

Sneak Peek: Target And Neiman Marcus’s Designer Holiday Collaboration

Target and Neiman Marcus are at absolute opposite ends of the retail spectrum, which is all the more reason for them to want to come together, right?

Unlikely Style Inspiration: The Sister Witches Of “Hocus Pocus”

The 1993 Disney Halloween comedy “Hocus Pocus” is straight-up one of my favorite movies of all time. I assume everyone has seen it already, but if not, I wouldn’t want to ruin it for you — you just have to watch it, with or without the under-16 audience for which it’s intended. Halloween may be…

Angelina Jolie Buys Brad Pitt A Helicopter, Plus 8 Other Extravagant Celeb Gifts

Angelina Jolie may just be the best gift-giver in Hollywood. Last year, she gave fiance and baby daddy Brad Pitt a freaking waterfall for Christmas. It had never occurred to me to want a waterfall before, but now I do. I’m not sure how much a waterfall costs, but I imagine it costs less than the $1.6 millllllion Jolie just spent…

10 Completely Miserable Christmas Cats

There’s nothing cats hate more than being dressed up in festive costumes. Seriously? Look at the miserable kitty faces in this collection of Santa cats — the disdain is practically dripping off their furry little bodies. And that’s what makes Christmas cats so much fun. …

Mind Of Man: The Gift That Will Get You Laid

The current historic economic nosedive has two unintended consequences. One of them is that hobos just aren’t really cute anymore. Maybe they never were. All these years I thought they were adorable dirty clowns, carrying little bundles tied to the ends of sticks. I never realized those bundles were full of cans of beans and…

3 Modernized Christmas Carols To Celebrate Awkward Family Time

Christmas carols are nice, but they’re a little out of touch with the realities of modern life, don’t you think? I mean, red-nosed reindeer, frosty snowmen, jingling bells, and little drummer boys? Whatever. I think it’s time for an update. Ready to sing about real holiday topics like awkward political discussions, chaste sleeping arrangements, and…
