15 Awesome Cheryl Strayed Quotes For A Dose Of Inspiration

15 Awesome Cheryl Strayed Quotes For A Dose Of Inspiration

I just started reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed (yes, I have been under a rock for the past few years) and am completely swept away by it. Strayed, who’s also behind the much-adored Dear Sugar advice column at The Rumpus (which has been turned into a book called Tiny Beautiful Things, which you will read and then instantly buy for all your friends), describes tough decisions and what it is to be human in a way that nobody else quite can.

In honor of the campaign to turn one of her best Dear Sugar columns into an animation (and simply because her words never get less awesome), here are some of Strayed’s most wonderful and inspiring quotes about life, love, fear and forgiveness: Keep reading »

15 Cheerful Quotes About Spring To Help Get Your Happy On

15 Cheerful Quotes About Spring To Help Get Your Happy On

“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.” I saw this Pablo Neruda quote scrawled onto a sandwich board in Brooklyn this weekend, just as I was coming out of a weeks-long funk. The sun was shining and daffodils were popping out of the ground, and I was sure I couldn’t have come across it at a more perfect time. What a relief it is that we’ve survived the cold months! At times, this year’s tedious winter seemed endless — which is why Neruda’s words have stuck with me these last few days. If there’s one thing we can count on, it’s that spring will always find its way back, no matter how dismal January feels. Here are some more quotes to keep you smiling and rejuvenated through this season of new beginnings… Keep reading »

7 Delicious Pieces Of Life Advice From Julia Child

One of my best talents is reading buzzed-about books 5-10 years after they come out. If you’re ever browsing at a bookstore and a woman nudges you in the arm to whisper conspiratorially about a great new author she just discovered named David Foster Wallace, well, that’s probably me. In keeping with my late-to-the-literary-party theme, a couple weeks ago I read Julia Child’s memoir, My Life In France. Yes, the book that came out in 2006 and was turned into a movie 5 years ago. Have you read it? It’s so, so good.

The whole time I was reading My Life In France, I had a goofy grin plastered on my face. It’s such a lovely, joyful book. The amazing food descriptions, her playful relationship with her husband, the gorgeous imagery of Paris, her dogged determination to become the best chef she could be — everything about it inspired me and soothed my soul. By the time I finished, I was such a Julia fangirl that I printed out an 8×10 photo of her and hung it in a blue glitter frame over my desk. Here are some specific quotes from the book that are going to stay with me at least as long as the weight I gained from eating cheese while reading it: Keep reading »

Oh Morrissey! He’s had such a busy weekend! On Friday, “The Boy With a Thorn In His Side” took to the stage at Los Angeles’ Staples Center and took Beyonce to task for purchasing bags made out of rhinoceros. Beyonce’s choice of bags, claimed Moz, are responsible for the extinction of the rhinoceros. Mmkay!

Another complete Morrissey mindfuck? His Friday show was introduced by Patrick “McDreamy” Dempsey. Because, yes, totally — friends that coif together, stay together.

But wait! There’s more!

What Courtney Love would say to Kurt Cobain right now if she could. Read More »

Kurt Cobain would have been 46 today. Do you remember where you were when you found out he’d killed himself? I was in high school art class, likely making some awful riot grrl-inspired art. I liked Nirvana, but at that point considered myself a little too cool to get super into them. They were soooo commercial, after all. And I fancied myself some kind of indie rock/riot grrl/zine-writing nightmare.

But fan or not, for those of us that exist in that murky era — not Generation X and not Generation Y — Cobain is and always will be a powerful arbiter of youthful dissent.

There are some fashion designers who have managed to attain celebrity status based on their individual personas in conjunction with their brand. Exhibit A: Karl Lagerfeld, the kooky, perpetually politically incorrect, semi-unintentionally hilarious Chanel designer and cat owner for whom I have set a Google Alert. But for every Karl Lagerfeld there’s 20 big-time designers who prefer to fly under the radar in varying degrees — some simply maintain a low profile while others don’t claim much of a profile at all (seriously, who is Martin Margiela and what does he look like?). And then there’s Roberto Cavalli. I had no idea just how eccentric the Italian designer was, but if the clothes say anything about the man, his unrepentantly outlandish collections and penchant for all things wild should have clued me in long ago.

Leave it to Harper’s Bazaar to profile Cavalli in their glorious “24 Hours with…” segment, which has me all but convinced that he would make the best crazy grandpa of all time. After the jump, a bit of insight into Cavalli’s average day… but I highly recommend reading the entire piece. You won’t regret it. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Anna Writing A Memoir?

Is Anna Wintour writing an autobiography? Read More »

So much has been said about Anna “Nuclear” Wintour, but she doesn’t seem to say much herself. The longtime Vogue editor-in-chief conducts herself just about as privately as it gets, so when rumors flew last summer that she was in the process of writing a memoir, we had our doubts. After all, the woman only gives an interview once in a blue moon (and even then, it’s only in the interest of her magazine), let alone a tell-all book. In a rare move, Wintour took to Telegraph this week to talk everything from her father (the editor of the London Evening Standard newspaper) to her creative director and contemporary Grace Coddington’s new read. But here’s what you really want to know: what does she really look for in a potential hire? The answer might surprise you.

“I look for strong people,” she says of her staff. “I don’t like people who’ll say yes to everything I might bring up. I want people who can argue, and disagree, and have a point of view that’s reflected in the magazine. My dad believed in the cult of personality. He brought great writers and columnists to the Standard. I try to do that here, too.”

More highlights from the interview, after the jump… Keep reading »

“As a woman, I think it’s really important not to discredit feelings. There weren’t too many difficulties with the whole love triangle thing [in "Twilight"] … If you can get past conventions and what everyone else is thinking, then you can have what you want.”

― While talking “Twilight” at a promotional event, Kristen Stewart waxed philosophical on her character Bella Swan’s complicated relationships with two men. It’s interesting to me, in light of what apparently went down, that she would make this comment ― and phrased so oddly! “As a woman, I think it’s really important not to discredit feelings.” What is she trying to say?
