McDonald’s Creates Big Mac Lifestyle Collection, Is Gross

I’m not sure what McDonald’s is trying to pull with this stunt here, but to me it is dumb as hell. It screams of try-hard hipster appeasement and it’s just kind of gross? I love hamburgers and I love food being depicted on clothes in many cases, but McDonald’s is totally on my shit list…

Celebrity Lifestyle Gurus & Their Brands, Ranked

The most compelling part of celebrity culture is when these people decide that the best way to share their dubious “gift” of existing and being alive is to branch out into lifestyle brands. Why limit yourself to starring in movies and being photographed in yoga pants walking your dog when you can throw everything you…

A Better Gym Selfie

I have so many conflicting feelings about gym selfies. I usually just sort of frown at them, shake my head, and move on. They’re the kind of thing that other people do, and while I totally respect their right to do it, I just don’t understand why. This came to a head this morning when,…

Pomplamoose: A Band At The Unholy Crossroads Of Art And Capitalism [UPDATED]

Indie band Pomplamoose shared their recent tour’s financial information with their fans last week, and, um, it was … Not so good. They’d like everyone to believe that it was good, but it was not good.
The band took in $97,519 in ticket sales for a 28-day tour, which is insane. That is a…

13 Things Only Midwesterners Can Relate To

I was born and raised in the midwest, except for a few years spent in Texas. Recently, after visiting Colorado and being genuinely surprised at how different it was, I was talking with my family about how wonderful it is to be from the midwest. People are genuinely friendly, like you could actually walk into…

10 Domestic Resolutions For 2014

Let me divulge a well-known secret; I am a type A homebody. By definition, I love to spend time at home, but can’t sit still long enough to make a dent in the couch.  Don’t be fooled: if you find me cuddling with a blanket, I’m still budy making a mental checklist of all the task…

F**k Your Noguchi Coffee Table — No, Really

I firmly believe that the glut of home how-to and design blogs exist solely to make me feel bad about myself (and my narcissism). They make me jealous. My apartment will never contain a cheekily reupholstered couch (the cat will just ruin it), or a darling set of succulent plants (I kill everything), or a well-appointed…

10 Ways To Make Your Mornings Suck A Little Less

I am not a morning person. Never have been. Ever since elementary school, I’ve been incapable of getting out of bed in a timely manner, let alone having anything resembling hand-eye coordination or a good attitude before, you know, noon. But in recent years, through a seemingly endless series of trials and errors, I’ve discovered…

12 Tips For Having A Super Lifestyle Porn-y Existence

Because I’m a jealous and petty person, I can’t stand to read lifestyle/home/craft blogs. Who are these people with endless amounts of free time, money and craft experience who seem to effortlessly turn their homes into the back page of a Martha Stewart magazine? They obviously don’t have cats. And because I’m jealous and petty,…

How To Get Featured On _________ [Insert Style Blog Name]

There was a time a couple years ago when getting featured on The Sartorialist was a goal for many a stylish New Yorker. I got lucky early and was snapped the week after I moved to the city, but friends and workmates alike were left scheming, stalking and plotting to run into Scott Schuman while wearing the…

Are Push Presents Really Necessary?

I love receiving gifts, but even I’m a little confused about the phenomenon of the push present. As you might have heard, the push present is a gift, often a piece of jewelry, a new father gives to a new mother when she gives birth to their first child. If you’re a fan of “The

What Should Betsey Johnson’s Plaza Hotel Eloise Suite Look Like?

It was announced last September that fashion designer Betsey Johnson would be designing an Eloise-themed suite for The Plaza Hotel in New York City. Those of you who were obsessed with Eloise to the extent that we were as kids may or may not have peed your pants in excitement at the news. Now, finally,…

Go Snapshot-Happy With A Retro Fish-Eye Camera

We love a cute camera as much as the next girl, but we’re particularly infatuated with cameras that are as functional as they are adorable. Cue Lomography’s Fisheye 2 Camera. It’s tiny and cute as hell, but also packs the punch of multiple and longtime exposure buttons, extra flash, and a fish-eye viewfinder. Bonus point…

Staggered Mini-Shelves Make For Chic Storage

It can be hard to get creative with your decor in shoebox-sized apartments. (Unless, of course, you count using half of your bed for shoe storage “creative” instead of plain sad.) Those of us who’ve grown accustomed to the tiny space, however, have learned to jump on every opportunity for adorableness that can be had…

DIY: Update Your Home With A Bright, Striped Wall

Usually, looking through my Facebook updates feed is cause for extreme boredom. On the rare occasion that it provides something I’m actually interested, I regain faith in mankind and blog about the glorious occurrence. This is one of those times. Amidst a sea of updates about peoples’ puppies and boyfriends and stuff was a pretty…

Careful, Kids, Drinking Can Cause Chemical Reactions

It’s hard to decide whether this chemistry set-inspired cocktail set is a warning against the dangers of drinking or just the coolest, most geeked-out way to make a margarita. Either way, the dork in us all can’t get enough of this combination of two of our favorite things: cocktails and nerdiness. [GeekSugar]…

Flowers, Magazines, Free Beauty Products — Wait, This Is A Bar?!?!

Call me prissy, but I avoid bars like I avoid men who wear bow ties. The loud music, the basketball game on TV, the syphilitic-looking bathrooms? No thank you. I’d much rather meet my girls for a Frappuccino or a mani-pedi, any place where the seats aren’t sticky. But if dive bars took a cue…
