Tell Us: What Never Fails To Make You Laugh?

Yesterday I confessed to Ami that ever since she told me that her dad buys every single CD they sell at Starbucks, I haven't been able to stop laughing about it. I just get so much joy from this knowledge and the image of her dad getting really excited about new releases at the register…

Tell Us: What’s The Best Meal You’ve Ever Eaten While Traveling?

The #1 reason I love to travel is also the #1 reason I love to, umm, be alive: FOOD. Sure, experiencing other cultures is nice, and expanding my horizons, and seeing cool stuff, blah, blah, blah, but when I think back on my most memorable travel moments, nearly all of them involved a truly unforgettable…

Random Question: What Happened When You Were 28?

It was recently brought to my attention that age 28 is often a big, crazy, life-changing year for people. Reasons range from Saturn return to cell turnover to psychological development to societal expectations, but I'm not as interested in the specific explanation as I am in people's unique experiences at this age. The vast majority…

Powerball Just Made Someone $400 Million Richer — How Would You Spend It?

Some extremely lucky person in Lexington, South Carolina bought the winning $400 million Powerball ticket this week.

Tell Us: What’s The Worst Customer Service You’ve Ever Received?

This past weekend, I was craving a smoothie in a really profound way. Sometimes I get very specific food urges that must be heeded immediately; for example, a couple weeks ago I said to my boyfriend, "I think I'm really depressed because I haven't been eating enough beets!" so obviously we had roasted beets for…

Relationship Do Or Don’t: A TV In The Bedroom

When Nick and I moved, we sold our TV, and for the past couple months we've been toying with the idea of living a TV-free life. It was nice for awhile, but soon we realized we had turned into that special breed of hipster who says "I don't watch TV," but spends, like, six hour…

Help! Do Comfortable High Heels Exist?

Last week I was wandering the aisles of Nordstrom Rack and found the cutest pair of blue suede Franco Sarto pumps (shown above). When I slipped them on, they fit my feet perfectly and felt shockingly comfortable thanks to a bit of padding in the sole and a relatively low heel, at least compared to…

Style 911: Where Can I Find Shorts For Thick Thighs?

I haven't worn non-athletic shorts since my age was in the single digits due to my German heritage and stocky lower body.  I am not overweight by any means; I just have thighs that love to accumulate muscle and that cupcake I ate yesterday! It would expand my summer wardrobe so much if I had…

Do Or Don’t: Buying Birthday Presents For Yourself

I was flipping through Lucky magazine this weekend (in the bath, actually! Amelia would be proud) and saw a gorgeous purse that literally made me gasp. The strap on my current purse broke recently, and this was the perfect new bag for me. The only problem? It costs $269, which is about $200 more tha…

Do You Have A Work Husband?

Whether or not you have an actual husband or partner at home, apparently there's a good chance you've got a special someone at work: according to a recent survey, 65 percent of workers have or have had a work spouse. What is a work spouse? It's your closest ally at work, someone with whom you…
