Smart Is the New Pretty: Socially Acceptable

By |April 18th, 2012|Smart Is the New Pretty, WhyDid Wisdom|

social media rubiks cubeIt’s funny, one of the first things I do in the morning (other than open my eyes) is look at my phone.  I mean, I need to see what I missed during those seven to eight hours of sleep.  Is the internet still there?  Are you still out there, world??

Smart is the New Pretty: Back in Black

By |November 23rd, 2011|Smart Is the New Pretty, WhyDid Wisdom|

While many of us are busy stocking the refrigerator and planning out tomorrow’s menu, there are others out there who are plotting a different kind of game plan.  That’s right I’m talking about you crazy kids who take part in a little something called Black Friday.  While I would sooner die than try and take on the madness (check out 10 things I’d rather be doing), it’s a tradition for some and well, it’s good for the economy.

Good luck out there, kiddos.  And jut remember, it’s all fun and games til someone loses an eye.

The List Volume XXXVI

By |January 28th, 2011|The List|

Ah yes, it is that time of the week.  The list.  It never ceases to amaze me that so many things can be so obnoxious.

  1. The post office. Why is there always a line? What is so difficult?
  2. Willow Smith in Vanity Fair. Isn’t she like two?
  3. Why does my yogurt have a twitter logo on it? I can’t click it. I also don’t want to follow you on twitter, yogurt.
  4. “Fashion” bloggers who can’t spell the names of designers.
  5. People who don’t know how to merge (the cause of all LA traffic).
  6. Greasy bangs. Ew. Just ew.
  7. Brain freeze.
  8. Friends with Benefits coming out right after No Strings Attached. How did the exact same movie get made twice? Like, who forgot to pass along that memo?
  9. Sleeveless turtlenecks. Um? Oxymoron, no?
  10. Charlie Sheen. Seriously, get. it. together.



Would You Wednesday: My Humps

By |November 10th, 2010|Why Did or Why Don't?|

Recently, the lovely Miranda Kerr bared it all for W Magazine showcasing her baby bump. There is no doubt that Miranda is absolutely gorgeous, but is this really how all those hot blooded males wanted to see her nude? Talk about a buzz kill! We all remember the first daring diva to strip down her pregnant body for a magazine:

The also stunning Demi Moore bared her bump for Vanity Fair. So, here’s the dilemma… is showing off our childbearing belly cool or uncouth? I can’t decide whether it’s a beautiful tribute to motherhood or just TMI. What do you think?

Lovely lady lumps.
