Before moving to the city, I imagined Christmas in New York to be exactly how it is depicted in films: perfect. I seamlessly blended together the scenes in movies with my understanding of reality. I was so sure that my first Christmas in New York City would see me living in a winter wonderland reminiscent of the ones seen in Serendipity and Home Alone.

Love bright, bold eyeliner? Me, too. The only thing that bums me out is when you spend money on something you think will be one gorgeous color, but it turns out to be a completely different shade despite the packaging and (possibly very obscure) name.

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

The New York Post is concern-trolling hard today. They’re extremely worried that mounting tuition costs, rising rents and… dunno, expensive shoe habits?… are forcing women to turn increasingly to sugar babying. More

I’m not gonna lie: when I wrote up that item about Topless Bowery Lady a few weeks ago, I got a bit jealous. To be able to walk around New York City all careless and fancy free like that, breasts unfettered, the cool breeze rushing across your chest…it all seemed so wonderful, yet unattainable. I would never have the gall to do that, I thought. Social conventions being what they are, there’s no way I could possibly carry that off without attracting an incredible amount of unwanted attention, making people mad, scarring children for life, potentially getting harassed by the cops, etc. Why, oh why, can’t I just air my tits out like it ain’t no thang? STUPID AMERICA. More
