In an extremely uncharacteristic moment, I am going to teach you how to replicate Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s manicure from the 2013 Met Gala. More
Look, as everyone at the 2013 Met Gala last night realized, “no one was paying attention to the Punk theme.” The theme actually became “Everyone ignored this theme.” Ashley already pretty cruelly dismissed my favorite dress, worn by the lovely Bee Shaffer by saying: More
How long do you think you could go without looking in a mirror? I’m going to say I could go about four hours, providing I could also look at myself in windows or reflective pools. One woman managed to do it for a year. According to The Daily Mail, the experiment helped one woman gain self confidence. More
Prescription birth control costs more in low income areas than it does in high income areas, which is absolutely crazy and terrible. And yet, true! Sick, Sad World The Huffington Post reports: The cost data came from MyFloridaRx.com, a website developed by the … More
What on Earth is an “online dating surrogate,” you might ask? What a good question! More
There is a piece on XOJane detailing how one woman is afraid of fashion. She is not alone! Lots of people have a fear of fashion, or feel it is wasteful!
You know who is not afraid of fashion? This chick right here. Me. Me, this chick. More
I end up feeling pretty bad for short guys. I mean, not Napoleon. I do not feel particularly bad for Napoleon. I think, ultimately, like Jay Gatsby, Napoleon was alright in the end. Nor do I feel particularly bad for Hugh Dancy, who is a very short man, but seems to have a lovely relationship with Claire Danes. I also do not feel bad for Tom Cruise because I think he is utterly insane.
But, you know, all the other ones.
I bet you are not even going to notice the most amazing thing about this shrine to Amanda Bynes in the East Village. More
I’ve spent a lot of time hearing and thinking about Sheryl Sandberg‘s Lean In, which encouraged people to push harder even if meant being thought unfeminine (Mark Zuckerberg told Sandberg had to stop worrying about people liking her). So I was pretty excited to hear about The Athena Doctrine which says that, actually, men should try to be more like women. More
I went to see Iron Man 3 the other night (yes, before it came out, I roll really deep with some pretty cool people. I knocked over an entire table full of free popcorn, like cool people do) and I was charmed to see that it’s actually a romantic comedy cleverly disguised as an action movie. Basically, it’s about Pepper Pots and Iron Man trying make their relationship as a couple work. And the advice is not just, “Give more blowjobs!” I don’t want to spoil anything for you, but there’s some good advice in there. Namely: More
There’s a quiz over at Motilo about what kind of wedding guest you are. It has me pegged pretty perfectly. I am a classic wedding guest, and my “wardrobe consists of many pastel colours and boleros, and you have a drawer of fascinators.” Who doesn’t? But there are lots of other kinds of wedding guests you can be, beyond the one who is seeking love, or the cynic. For instance: More
Basically, every time there is a piece written about how women aren’t funny, the thesis seems to be, “Women are not funny, because I do not find them to be so, and I am right about everything all of the time.” By that logic you could also say that monkeys in tiny suits are not funny (they are) or that large hammers are not funny (they definitely are).

Do you want to look mysterious? That’s a hat for that. Do you want to look friendly, and approachable? There’s a hat for that. Do you want to look like your are ready to to spur your horse on at the Kentucky Derby. There’s a hat for that. Honestly, there’s a hat for everything except looking like you belong in the 21st certury, but that is your fault. You took that away from yourselves. More
