If you like the finer things in life but can’t afford them because you have a liberal arts agree and insist on living in a major city, you might consider some tasteful, Miley-inspired garments and accessories that give the illusion of excessive wealth. Here’s ten items under $100 that are simply covered in money, for when you’re feeling fancy. More
Is soliciting donations for a wedding inappropriate, rude or otherwise bad in the etiquette department? (Answer: Yes.) More
Unfortunately, this cruise ship will not involve Jack & Rose being resurrected (side note: would Young Rose or Old Rose come back? if it’s the latter, we’re in for some May/December zombie romance). But it will probably involve a $1M price tag! And hella icebergs because of course it will. More
Because if they do, I’ll be the first in line to quit my job and find a man!
Just kidding. That’d be stupid. But apparently, this is not an uncommon mindset. More
Lena Dunham thinks that it’s such a weird idea that people write for money and not “to figure things out.”
I would like to point out that Lena Dunham has a 3.5 million dollar book deal. More
Here is your daily reminder that combining obnoxious people with lots of money is a terrible idea. And also a reminder that other countries have way prettier money than we do. More
Let’s see a letter from a reader who’s friend is stuck in a shrubbery-filled rut. More
I didn’t get a bailout. (And I’m better off for it.) More
So now that I’ve gotten all high-and-mighty about maturity and taking responsibility for your own actions, I’d like to continue the grown-up discussion with a different subject. Back-to-school shopping.
Why would grown-ups talk about back-to-school shopping? You might be asking. Unless we’re talking about the grown-ups’ school-aged children. But we’re not. We’re talking about me. More
Stop the presses! Someone has out-GOOP-ed Gwyneth! More
Oh my God, we’re finally going to get to stop prefacing every discussion of the economy with “in these difficult economic times.” More
As you may know by now, princess of commodified quirk Zooey Deschanel has just gotten around to filing for divorce from her estranged husband Ben Gibbard, which has somehow resulted in an account of her personal finances getting released to the public. They’re fairly boring, all things considered. Apparently, Deschanel makes $95,000/month and spends a fraction of that (~$22,000) living incredibly well; according to the document, she spends $1,000 on groceries and household supplies, $500 on eating out, $800 on utilities (turn out the damn lights!), $300 for “her various phones and email accounts” (isn’t email free?), $600 on laundry and cleaning and $2,000 on clothes.
Or does she? Maybe this balance sheet is but a smokescreen for what Zooey’s actually spending her money on: items fantastical and fine. Here’s where I think the money is actually going. More
Talk about “fat cats.” A new blog called “ca$hcats.biz” has dedicated itself solely to bringing you the most adorable photos of cats rolling around in piles of money that it can find. Ironic meta-commentary on our capitalist society, or sincere effort to combine multiple things people like? Can’t it be both? I should note, however, that the sex worker blog Tits and Sass has a similar feature called “Stacks & Cats” that predates this by quite a bit. Luckily, there’s room for infinite cats on the Internet. Here are some selections from it. More
I’d watch the shit out of this. More
