Everybody Poops…Even Brenda Watson

Embrace your Digestion.

I will confess upfront I have not tried any of the samples I was given – not the DietStart Cleanse and not the Fiber35 Diet FitSmart Shake in Chocolate Crème and Old-Fashioned Vanilla — and I probably never will. Supplements frighten me. I know the FDA isn’t perfect…but *some* sort of regulatory oversight from our friends in Washington usually makes me feel better. Othe... More...

Color Cosmetics from one of our Favorites

Lush Cosmetics is adding vegan color (although they spell it “colour”) cosmetics to its line of skincare, haircare, bath and shower items. The new products – Colour Supplements, Charlotte Island Body Tint and solid facial serums – will be available starting today! Last week – because I have friends in high places? — I went to a Tweetup at Lush’s Union Squa... More...

China Fashion Week 2010

Need we say more? China. Fashion. Week.

I doubt I will ever in my life be noteworthy enough to attend any Fashion Week events anywhere in the world, so it’s maybe a little ridiculous to provide any sort of insight and/or ridicule (…but isn’t that sort of a natural reaction? To make fun of things you’re not allowed to be a part of…?)…although technically it’s Tom & Lorenzo who are providing comm... More...

“My Water Hasn’t Even Broken Yet – We Totally Have Time for Another Round…”

“No Uterus — No Opinion!”

Via AlexMcCord.com I’m always several years behind pop culture, but I’m happy to report I recently powered through Season Three of Mad Men via Netflix and am technically caught up until next season. And, season after season, I’ve totally been captivated by all the philandering and drinking and driving and drinking/smoking while preggers — that was just 20 years before I wa... More...

In the U.K., “Pants!” is a Mild Curse…Here? It’s Art.

If you’re the jealous type and don’t want to anyone else in the world to have the same jeans as you… Or if you consider every pair of pants in your closet a precious commodity… Or if you’re super-green and like the idea of recycling vintage jeans into a whole new pair… Or if you want to walk around in a line that marries California Freedom with British Cool… Or if y...

Julia and Paul Child + Tucker Max = Happy Valentine’s Day From Lisa

Oh, Valentine’s Day…wingéd harbinger of bitterness… The past several years, I’ve tried to anticipate you and come up with a sensible way to counteract you, thereby maybe enjoying – or at least enduring — the Day of Love…but, sadly, nothing has proven particularly effective – not sending cards to my nieces and nephew; not “going out with...

Ironic Twist: Google Launches Designer Collection…But, Like Emperor, Has No Clothes

Boy, if I had a nickel for every time I’ve searched for something on the Internet and thought, “This search engine is such a huge part of my life! I wish there was some way to commemorate Google physically on my person that wouldn’t simultaneously force me to compromise my high sense of fashion…,” I certainly wouldn’t be scrambling to come up with enough free...

Everything I Needed to Know About Dating I Learned From Jersey Shore

Photo Credit: MTV As the first season of Jersey Shore came to a grinding halt on Thursday, it’s hard not to reminisce about what a wild ride it’s been since the show debuted on December 4. At this point, it’s still a little early to definitively say what the show’s true legacy will be – the Gym-Tan-Laundry trinity, the clear proof that hot tubs are aphrodisiacs, the ... More...

I realize that watching The Bachelor leaves me pretty much alone in a group otherwise populated exclusively by Midwestern housewives, but…I don’t have cable, so that’s my excuse. And, for those of you who haven’t seen it already, The Bachelor is in rare form this season. And…I admit that in previous seasons, I have been genuinely captivated — until stupid Jason Mesn...

I have a friend in her thirties…who has started to feel a lot of pressure to find The One. And I can totally commiserate as I am not far behind and I basically feel the same thing. And it just so happens that while my friend was home for the holidays, she ran into formerly single friends who were in new relationships and were blissfully happy…and they had *all* found their soul mates via ...
