Spring felt like a long time coming, but the time has finally come to remove your winter gloves and expose your mitts to the world. There’s no better way to wave good-bye to winter and high-five warmer weather than with preciously lacquered hands.
But what color polish will do right by this transition? Deborah Lippmann‘s new collection, Staccato. More
Every Fall, the best event of the year takes place: the Chocolate Show. Or, as EIC Jennifer Wright and I like to call it, “CHOCOLATTTTTTTTTTTE SHOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW.” Basically, a bunch of vendors fill up the Metropolitan Pavillion in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, lay out their chocolate-y wares in festive booths and politely demand you eat them. Without sounding like a chick lit cliche, it is fucking awesome.
Let’s take a look at what they had. More
Jamie mentioned on this post about sugar daddies that she hates most rich people. That struck us – and Eileen – as an unfair generalization, because we really believe that any kind of bigotry and discrimination against a class of people is wrong. We decided it was worth touching on the topic. Also, I threatened to go home and use all of my bandage dresses to stop up the big sad hole that had been ripped in my heart by all the hatred, so Ashley helped me make this picture of a smiling sailboat. It seemed like a shame to let that go to waste. His name is Schooner! So. How are rich people the funnest, with their anthropomorphic sailboats and glamour? This is how: More
The week, editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff debate the merits of rekindling a romance… with a former flame. See what we did there? Sidenote: ARE YOU BURNING THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS? (We stopped ourselves at using incendiary, though). More
Well, they’re not all horrifying. Some of them are.
Yeah, most of them. More
Arianne Cohen, a Marie Claire writer joined Overeaters Anonymous because when she went out with people, she was distracted by the bread basket. She also started eating sprinkles as a snack with a tablespoon.
When she went there she heard stories of people bottoming out, like the one from a woman who went out to “a public dinner” and broke into the kitchen and just tossed all the desserts in her purse and ran, just ran, gobbling a glorious purse-load of tiramisu as she went, floating along on a cloud of sugar and the distant but frenzied cheers of her comrades. Oh, I’m sorry. I was confused. She went out to a public dinner and had “three glasses of wine and, oh yes, the entire bread basket.”
Now, I’m not sure whether this was the best bread basket in the world, but most restaurant bread baskets have around 4 pieces of bread in them. 5, maybe?
Look. Lady. That is not a binge. That is “a good night.” More
No. Fucking. Way.
I wish, I wish so badly, that I could tell you that what I’m about to write isn’t true.
But I can’t. Because it is true.
Consumerist reports that an ice cream store in London called The Icecreamists will be selling a frozen treat made of Madagascan vanilla pods, lemon zest, and fresh milk from the breasts of new mothers: More
You’re relaxing alone by taking a bubble bath while drinking a glass of red wine? Because you just got back from your yoga class where you meditated? Oh, and afterwards you’re going to eat some low-fat ice cream while watching animal videos on YouTube?
Oh, God, us too. Shit.
All of these activities, taken individually, sound fine. All of them coupled together are morphing us into a Bridget Jones caricature. So we came up with some newer, cooler alternatives.[
We’re sort of part of the problem, really. We should probably gently chide men for treating us like pieces of meat when they catcall us. Instead, we keep flashing them the double thumbs up (like Fonzie!) Oh, fine, not all of them. Only some of them. Only these. Only the best ones. We give the rest only one thumb up, and sometimes we let it hover sideways for a while, like we’re judging gladiators. Here are the best catcalls the women of the B5 office has ever received: More
He’s the Giles Deacon for Ungaro fashion week mascot. He likes ice cream. – Racked
Holy shit! They’re developing anti-aging ice cream! They’re combining something cool with something else that’s cool! It’s still five years off, but it’s happening! GO, BEN AND JERRY’S, GO!
I was excited, until the Allure author spent most of the article making sure I knew ice cream will make me fat. She notes: More
Ben & Jerry’s is reportedly working on a new ice cream flavor with anti-aging antioxidants in it. According to Allure, researchers are hard at work on this project, but it will most likely be five years before we see it actually come to fruition. More
When zombies look at your skull, they see an ice cream sundae. Why shouldn’t everyone? They could if you had this Neff hat. It has a little cherry on top. That cherry will make you extra super special when the zombie apocalypse comes. Just kidding. The zombies won’t care about your little hat. But other people will. – FredFlare More
Why isn’t a pint of ice cream ever enough? Especially when it’s Cherry Garcia?
