You can be raised by very nice people — even very nice, very responsible people — and still be raised with totally self-defeating values about money, work, education, navigating institutions, and planning your life. More

Fashion may not be for the faint of heart, but is it for the fickle? More
While this thumbnail may make her look like an elegant ballerina in a blush pink tank… do not be fooled. More
The month-long sting resulted in the arrests of men from all walks of life: lawyers, doctors, dentists, engineers, college professors and students, a stockbroker and a car salesman, with ages spanning 17-79. They were apprehended through an ad on Backpage.com (which, we’re now learning, is a haven for devil-may-care attitudes toward capitalization, as well as escorts). More
I moved to New York a little over one month ago. So far, I love my job, I like my apartment, I enjoy the food and, despite the many warnings I received prior, I have already made some very, very snazzy friends. In all honesty, the only thing that has been really stressful is the deep and unsettling feeling that I am not pretty enough to live here. More
Sure, the ads of Beyonce for H&M are a bit risque, but why are people attempting to censor the photos themselves? More
Relationships involve a lot of patience, sacrifice, and white lies. Not just with each other, but everyone around you! I’ve been dating my boyfriend for three years, and each year I add more lies onto the pile of deceit. I’ve found myself living some of these lies — about how we met and where we live — so openly that I get lost in the story and have to remind myself of the truth.
Read the nine lies I’ve told since I started dating and admit that you, too, have been lying your face off. More
Like any tumultuous relationship, New York City does a number on the nerves and emotional state. More
Sitting at brunch with my friend Meagan one day, we started talking about the differences between our 20s and 30s.
At the start of our 20s, our priorities were (and these are more or less in order) doing well at work, dancing until 4 a.m., karaoke, drinking, and trying to make a dollar from fifteen cents. As the years progressed, relationships started, burned, then fizzled. Friends who moved to New York with us moved back to Florida, went to L.A., or found another corner of the country to call home. Other, shall we say, acquaintances we only saw at 2 a.m. eventually stopped calling us, and us them. Apartment and roommate merry go-rounds slowed and settled.
Then we turned 30. More
For four years, shoppers have been looking forward to unique events from various stores and vendors, as well as tons of bonus goodies for Fashion’s Night Out. Sadly, it will not be returning for a fifth — at least in New York City. More
Supermodel Karlie Kloss is becoming a vegan baker because… because why the fuck not? More
“You heard me,” he snapped. “I don’t want disgusting woman tears all over my cab.” 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
