Found: A Comfortable, Cute, Supportive Sports Bra For DD Boobs

Last week, while contemplating the tattered, limp tangle of spandex and bent underwires that composed my current sports bra collection, I knew it was time to bite the bullet and go shopping for a new one. I have DD boobs, recently started jogging again, and these worn out bras just weren't cutting it anymore. For…

The Amazon Reviews For Haribo Sugarless Gummy Bears Are Disgustingly Hilarious

The reviews on Amazon are often a treasure trove of hilarity, but occasionally they are both amusing and educational. For example, I had no idea until today that if I were to eat a handful of Haribo sugarless gummy bears, I could expect my inside…

Beauty Test Drive: Dermalogica Skincare

I have experienced a few transformations in my life that have been so dramatic I wish I had taken before and after pictures. One of those times was when I went to Super Cuts for a trim and the stylist gave me a pixie cut with a rat tail. Another was when I bought my…

Beauty Test Drive: Celine Dion’s Perfume Collection

Last Tuesday at around 11AM I heard a knock on the door. I wasn't expecting a package and the last time I opened the door for a random visitor it was two religious guys wearing shiny white pants who told me they had definitive proof that God was a fish, so I ignored it and…

Beauty Test Drive: Peter Thomas Roth Complexion Clearing Pads

As if bikini waxes weren't inherently embarrassing enough, some of us (read "me") may or may not have ingrown hair situations that make the whole thing all the more uncomfortable. Perhaps in an effort to put me out of my awkward misery, one of the lovely wax ladies at The Skin Spa suggested…

Beauty Test Drive: Tarte Lip Stain

At first swipe, we had high hopes for Tarte's Natural Lip Stain. Lust, the color we tested, had an appropriately sultry name and glided on with a practiced sort of ease, moisturizing as it went. Unfortunately, the honeymoon period soon disappeared and we were left with nothing but faint vestiges of the relationship we'd begu…

Eley Kishimoto For Anthropologie Looks Like Maternity Wear

We love an Anthropologie designer collaboration as much as the next girl, but the newly released Eley Kishimoto collection is a dud. Cheaper fabrics don't seem to do justice to Eley Kishimoto's usually cute prints and shapes, and all the clothes veer pretty intensely towards maternity wear. The line is available in the…

Beauty Test Drive: Gigi Brazilian Bikini Wax

I've tried waxing my lady regions before. It didn't go well. There were burns and blood, and I threw a few things. That was a few months ago, and it prompted me to seek out Irina, a lovely Eastern European woman of epic bikini waxing skill. But apparently time does heal all wounds and traumas,…

Anna Sui For Target/Gossip Girl Is A Mixed (But Mostly Cute) Bag

The day you've all been waiting for is imminent: Anna Sui's "Gossip Girl"-inspired line for Target is available to the public this Sunday. We weaseled our way into a sneak preview this week though, and we've got the lowdown on how the collection looks in real life. As is to be…

We See Chick Flicks: Twilight

The minute my cousin and I realized we both read "Twilight", we knew we had to make a date to see the movie...a very well planned date so we could get tickets before they sold out. I might be the only person on the planet that thought this, but I couldn't really envisio…

What We Thought Of Sex And The City

After this IM, we're seriously not saying the words "Sex and the City" for a very, very, very long time. Cross our hearts and hope to die! Our impressions over IM, after the jump. Oh, and there are spoilers!
