Hipster Barbie, the pitch-perfect Instagram parody account that skewered the earnestly twee lifestyle bullshit of Instagram celebs everywhere, is dead. Darby Cisneros, the 20-year-old Portland-native who created the account, is saying farewell to her 1.3 million followers.

“Never in 1 million years did I think it would receive the amount of attention that… READ MORE »

If you’ve ever found yourself at the mercy of a 10 minute photoshoot just to get one perfect #haircut #selfie, or spent more than, hmm, five minutes arranging your book, your coffee and your flaky croissant on a table before taking a picture, you understand intimately the empty hunger for social media approval.  You also, on… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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,… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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 tasks… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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,… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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 “TheREAD MORE »
