January 23 was the official last day for fashion shows, and it did not disappoint with the featured couture collection. Here’s a look back at a big week in fashion:   Since there are soRead More

5 No-Nos in the Bedroom

Everyone has their personal list of “no-nos” for what they think is acceptable when gettin’ it on. Be that as it may, here are a few “don’ts” that I  hope would be on everyone’s list: #1 – Socks I don’t know about you, but I think keeping your socks on during sex is just weird. Sex is something you’re supposed to do naked, and to keep that one awkward article on is just silly. It’s not hard to take those socks off, so just do it. #2 – Criticism No one likesRead More
Are you broke and hungry? A starving college student or recent graduate with no culinary expertise…or money? Here’s how you can eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a week – all for under $60.   It may sound crazy, but local farmers markets, such as Sprouts, can be one of the cheapest grocery stores… even compared to corporate stores such as Safeway or King Soopers. Stores that get most of their produce locally tend to have not only better, organic foods, but shockingly low prices as well. Through my yearsRead More
Breakups are a part of life, but being single is what you make it. For some people, the single life is stress-free and exciting. For others, it’s frustrating and miserable. Here are 6 things single people do that hold them back from embracing singlehood: 1.    Worry about where their friends are in life All of us progress through life at different rates, and it isn’t fair to use your friends’ milestones as benchmarks for your own achievements.

Lesbehonest…I had McDonald’s for lunch today. And for breakfast yesterday. Possibly multiple times this week. When it comes to being healthy and working out, it takes a small miracle to get me anywhere near kale and/or a treadmill. But as I grow older, I’m not-so-subtly often reminded of the reality of a declining metabolism and drooping physique. Enter the gym. Actually, more like gyms. I’ve cycled through (literally… I hate spin classes) a new gym almost monthly since graduating from college and attempting to be a real adult with aRead More

Things Women Do That Piss Men Off

Consider this a rebuttal to Shannon’s piece, or consider this an incomplete guide to ALL the things women do that piss us off. As you may have expected, this list of female annoyances is longer than its male counterpart, for obvious reasons: women are amongst the most annoying creatures to ever inhabit this planet.

Reading WAY too much into things we don’t give anyRead More

Since we endured a polar vortex recently, and it was a refreshing -30 degrees F here, I felt that it was fitting to write an article on the highest rated winter boots on the market. I also wanted to clarify what to look for and the quality of different boots before you went and made a final purchase. We still have a lot of snow days ahead of us this year, so you might as well be prepared for the worst! There are many factors that contribute to the qualityRead More

#MCM Player Highlight: Julian Edelman—Jukes and Jokes

Most of us who follow the NFL are familiar with Patriots’ wideout and punt returner, Julian Edelman. After a 2012 season that was punctuated by injuries, Edelman’s really blown the lid off of his 5th season in the NFL, making franchise records and earning folks some decent fantasy numbers. In his last game against the Bills, Edelman became the third Patriots player in history to catch 100 passes in a single season. He is also the 10th player in franchise history to record a 1,000-yard receiving season, and he ranksRead More
As an entire unit, women weren’t on their best behavior in 2013. We can blame Miley all we want, but at the end of the day, we are the only ones responsible for our piss poor antics. Amanda Bynes was out here busting it wide open on Twitter, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey were acting like children on American Idol, Kim K was doing far too much as usual, and don’t get me started on the animals who star in shows like “Love and Hip Hop” and “Basketball Wives”. Apparently,Read More
