You know those really cool people who can wear one obviously inappropriate piece of clothing, but instead of having people say “hey, we always suspected you might have a cat sweater in your closet!” people just kind of stand back and say “how is that person so cool?” Yeah, I haven’t really seen this happen, ever, but I read about it in a book written by someone who lives in Brooklyn. Sounds fun. We’re going to make you into one of those people. More
I don’t know about you, but periodically, I go out to get pedicures, and I always sit under the fan for the ten minutes they tell me to for the polish to dry (the polish that promises to quick dry in three minutes). I pay the extra dollar for the quick dry solution and carefully tiptoe home in flip flops. And it looks great. But the minute I get home and put on some closed toed shoes, the polish gets all smudged and the pedicure is ruined.
This happens every time, which is probably why I get about one pedicure a year.
Now! It could be that my toes are weird. That’s possible. Or it could be that there are some things I just haven’t tried. These are those things.
Some days you wake up and are like “today, I’m going to take off work and be a french maid stripper with my lover who fits all my specifications for that kind of sex game.” Other days are kind of drizzly and you have no clean tights to wear except those fishnets you have left over from the sex games. This is for those days. More
We’ve kind of touched on this before for TheGloss’s male readers, but I feel like we have a lot of famous celebrity lady readers who could use our help (still waiting for my friendship bracelets/hang-out offers from Zooey Deschanel, but it’s cool, no rush). So we’re going to share our wealth of knowledge about how to take good naked photos. Here is how. More
And by crazy, we basically mean like you are someone who just escaped from an anime convention. So, fun crazy, we guess? Still, a few tips to keep this look subtly sexy and not pervy and weird: More
Or look like a total crazy person if you’re into that! More

Are you one of those people who gets cold at night during the summer? Yes? Do you wear a scarf all the time? I’m one of those people, but it just hangs sort of limply over my shoulders. More
I once dated someone, and fell asleep laying on his arm. “Oh, no,” I said, ‘I’m going to cut off the circulation in your arm.”
“Careful,” he replied, “I think Sloane Crosley has that phrase copyrighted for her 17th book.”
Sloane Crosely’s 17th book “I’m Going To Cut Off The Circulation In Your Arm” will seem irrelevant after you read this guide, illustrated with my badly drawn stick figures. You’ll never lose circulation again! More
Manicures are difficult, because trying to do anything interesting is like trying to paint the Sistine Chapel, but really tiny, as if your nail were a Sistine Chapel for ants. Which is probably why whenever we try to do anything that involves painting out nails more than one plain color, our nails look like we were just in a paintball match. That makes us sad. They’re a constant reminder that we were NOT in a paintball match, and we love paintball matches. Fortunately, Sally Hansen has created a new line of adhesive nail strips. They look like nail polish, but you just pick up the strips and press them on your nails. And they last for ten days! The girls over at Bella Sugar created this video showing us – and you – how to apply them. More
Readers, I have a confession to make: I have never, ever put on eye makeup.
I should clarify. I love mascara and wear it a lot. But liner? Shadow? No way. I’ve had my makeup done for a TV appearance or at a makeup counter before, and loved the way that it looked. But I’ve always felt clumsy about doing my own makeup, especially when it comes to eyes. Luckily, the wonderful Amber Katz, who runs Beauty Blogging Junkie, offered to give me a tutorial. More
I cry all the time.
Anything can set me off. Used to be bad PMS, a sad movie, or a break up would do the trick. If you sat me down in front of Beaches I was a rainstorm of emotion.
I’ve always been a crier, but my tear-stained bar is so much lower these days. I cry during heartstring-tugging coffee comercials. I run to the office bathroom and burst into tears after a stressful meeting. I disagree with my boyfriend about planning a trip and start sobbing. More
