Increase Your Confidence With These Style And Body Language Tips

Find Your Confidence!

In a recent study conducted by Marshalls, 75 percent of the 1000 women surveyed admitted to having said “No” to various activities and invitations due to a lack of confidence. Are you shocked? I’m not. I’ve been there. Raise your hand if you’re among the 55 percent of women who’ve declined party invitations or the 40 percent who have passed up on career opportunities because you didn’t feel confident. It has to stop! Think of all the missed romantic, social, and professional opportunities. Keep reading »

Not Your Usual Rom-Com: Jenny Slate Is Having An Abortion In “Obvious Child”

Oops

Considering that one in three women will have an abortion during her lifetime, we don’t see too many on the big screen. Even in “Knocked Up” and “Juno,” two of the biggest movies in the last decade about unplanned pregnancies, the characters barely discussed terminations. That’s one of the few reasons I’m very curious to see “Obvious Child,” a new rom-com starring former “Saturday Night Live” star Jenny Slate. She plays an aspiring standup comedian named Donna who has an unplanned pregnancy right around the same time she gets dumped and loses her job. Gaby Hoffman from “Girls” stars as her friend and the flick is written and directed by Gillian Robespierre. Yes, a pro-choice film starring a woman with a lady director!  Everything about “Obvious Child” has “Jessica is going to see this on opening night” written all over it. Check out the trailer above!

HBO’s “The Normal Heart” Visits The Start Of The AIDS Crisis

The Beginning Of The AIDS Crisis

As a child of the ’90s who learned about HIV in elementary school (from a puppet, I believe), sometimes it’s difficult to imagine a world where HIV/AIDS was so misunderstood. There was once a time when people used the word “quarantine” when talking about this public health crisis. And it’s painful to remember that in my own lifetime, gay men and women — in New York City, of all places — were deeply in the closet because they feared for their lives. HBO has released its trailer for “The Normal Heart,” the Ryan Murphy-directed film based on the play by Larry Kramer, which tells the story of an activist (Mark Ruffalo) and a doctor (Julia Roberts) from 1981 until 1984 as they try to draw attention to a mysterious disease in New York City that seems to be targeting gay men. While the government ignores them — because who cares about gay men? — lives are being lost. The film debuts on May 25th on HBO. I’ll be watching. [YouTube]

The “Happy” Music Video Without Music Is Bizarrely Captivating

happy no music
Whoa, This Is Strange

It might sound crazy what I’m about to say … but the video for Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” is a bit creepy without any music. Here are parts of the video with Pharrell and others singing the song without any musical backing, which sounds less like a cappella than you would expect. I’m fairly certain that this is how musical numbers on TV shows and movies are formed — actors sing the song live, but the real singing and musical accompaniment is added later — but I didn’t realize it could be done for music videos, too. How strange! [AV Club]

John Mayer’s Acoustic Cover Of “XO” Isn’t Too Shabby

Can't Go Wrong With A Quality Bey Cover!

Like many members of the female population, I have some misgivings about John Mayer. I’ve pretty much lost my ability to enjoy his music for what it is without thoughts of his douchey personality tainting my experience. That said, his cover of Beyonce’s “XO” is quite nice. If you like John’s musical style, you’ll love his raw, romantic interpretation of the song. [Huffington Post]

Watch: Seth Rogen And Zac Efron Flash Penis, Try Out To Be The “Workaholics”‘ #CubicleNeighbors (NSFW)

"Did Leonardo da Vinci Circumcise You? It's Beautiful"

For those of you who haven’t seen “Workaholics” on Comedy Central, you’re missing out on life. Adam, Ders and Blake are like the modern day “Three Stooges” except way dirtier, and they’re looking for a fourth cube mate. In this hilarious video, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron both try out for the spot by showing off their best “vibes,” flashing their circumcised penises and trying to sell their Judaism to the group. Zac also gives the trio a sultry lap dance, which I will now add to my spank bank for future reference. Which guy would you choose as your cube mate: Zac or Seth? Decide while you’re laughing so hard you pee a little.

“Tuition,” A Cover Of Beyoncé’s Song “Partition” About Student Loans, Is Beyond Real

Sallie Mae, Pay Off My Tuition Please

Beyoncé may have already sung about someone “callin’ like a collector” but she’s probably never wondered “if I owe Sallie Mae or I owe the mob.” That’s what Chanel Carroll sings in her completely on point parody cover of “Partition” called (duh) “Tuition” about the loan giant Sallie Mae. Pay all my loans please, I just wanna live the debt-free life …  Oh man, as a fellow NYU grad who also used a buttload of loans to pay for school, I so relate to that one. Those student loan collection people are persistent and will hunt you down!  Maybe Bey will see this spoof and offer to foot the bill?

Beauty Test Drive: LORAC Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen

Watch Jessica Try It!

As a lady with more than a little redness on her face, concealer is one of my must-have beauty products. Concealers come in many forms, like sticks, tubes, and pots, but my particular favorite is a pen or wand. With a foundation wand, you can apply it directly onto your skin and pat it down with the applicator yourself — that way, you never have to touch your face with your dirty fingers. (Do I really need to remind you that touching your face is BAD for your skin?) Plus, it’s super easy to carry in your purse for touchups throughout your day. LORAC clearly had this in mind with their new Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen, which I’m happy to report is part of my daily beauty routine now. Keep reading »
