If the eyes are the windows into the soul, then makeup bags are the windows into clutter shame. Unfortunately, I’ve got lots: from my closet to my dresser drawer to my bathroom to on top of my dresser, my makeup takes up more per-square-inch space than I do.

If I work really hard, I can almost convince myself that these Barbie boob necklaces are funky and irreverent and cool, but then I remember they’re made from disembodied doll parts, and get creeped out.

The scene: 8:30 p.m pretty much every Tuesday, my living room.

According to Amy Odell, the editor over at Buzzfeed’s lifestyle vertical, Shift, Pinterest is “killing feminism.” So, as a feminist who uses… More »
Did you know that Pinterest is killing feminism? Yup, that website that you were really batshit crazy about back in May but haven’t really touched since is the reason why feminism lies in a crumpled heap at your feet.

So, the other day, this “cucumber sub” popped up on my Pinterest page labeled as the “perfect low carb sandwich” and it made me, like, raging mad.

I love Pinterest, but certain recipes and DIYs make me a little suspicious. Crockpot tiramisu? Really? Five-minute French tip manicure? Riiiiiight. My Pinterest side eye has been hilariously validated by a writer named Sonja Foust, also known as the “Pintester.” For the past six months, Foust has been testing recipes, crafts, and style tips she… More »
I heard about Pinterest at a wedding reception last year and within 24 hours, I was hooked. I had to pin everything: I grabbed every vegan recipe, organizing tip, cute outfit, inspirational quote, and makeup tutorial I could get my freshly ombre-manicured fingers on.
