As we gear up for this holiday season, it is important to remember that embodying the holiday spirit means more than just buying some fancy gifts for your loved ones. In 2017, a year which has seen a disproportionate number of global tragedies, it is perhaps more important than ever to try to help those who are less fortunate. While many charitable efforts this year have focused on areas devastated by hurricanes, like Puerto Rico and Houston, today we’re bringing your attention to a pervasive, ubiquitous issue in India.

With the holiday season upon us, we figured you may be looking for a few last minute gifts to share with family and friends…or even yourself!

Ditch the TVs and iPads and do Mother Nature some good by checking out some of our “smart” suggestions for those who deserve something cool and eco-friendly. Considering that a recent Nielsen survey showed 81% of Millennials areRead More

So, I have kind of a problem with impulse control. If I see a cute (insert item of clothing here), and it’s not that expensive, I’ll usually buy it without much thought to whether it fits into my budget (lol, what’s a budget), or whether it fits into my wardrobe (but it’s cute! Who cares if I never wear it?) It’s something that I’m trying to work on. This past month I tried to go shopping-free, as in, I tried not to buy anything, except for food and toiletries (notRead More

A Balancing Act

I am obsessed with order, symmetry, perfection. I hate gray areas, in-betweens, grounds of ambiguity. Last year, I strove for an all-or-nothing “balance” that I thought would regulate and organize my life. However, what I’ve realized is that balance is not about “extremes” leveling each other out. It is not always about saying a hard yes or a hard no. It isn’t about making a definite decision. Rather, a true balance is about finding the middle ground that I have hated so much. Last year, in an effort to maintain aRead More

3 Apps that Are Changing the Way We Shop

Online shopping to women is like Christmas to a little kid, like bacon and beer to the male sex, like vodka to an alcoholic. It gets us giddy with excitement, and free shipping just puts us over the edge. You don’t need to buy it, you don’t want to do it, but you just have to hit check out. And it feels oh so good. The beauty of online shopping is that it has morphed and advanced over the years. You went from shopping at your desktops to laptops toRead More

How to Glam Your Grunge

Sometimes our work-happy hours last longer than expected and we awake the next morning, foggy and furious at our alarm, and must abandon any  intention of showering in order to sleep a little bit longer.   No, I am not advocating regular avoidance of bathing to match the scent of the homeless man surrounded by pigeons and urine on your walk to the bus, but there are some serious ways to glam up your grunge that every twenty-something should be privy to.   1.  Charm Your Chewbacca Legs You haveRead More

True Life: I Let A Man Tickle My Feet for $100

I am participating in a project which I do odd jobs to pay off my student loans and blog about them at Missoddjobs.com.  This is how I met Larry, an architect in San Francisco with a foot fetish, and more specifically, a tickling foot fetish.  I let him tickle my feet for one hour for $100.  That is approximately $1.67 per minute, for laughing on camera.  I can assure you there was nothing sexual about this odd job that involved my homely and humungous feet.  Larry did not have anRead More

Dressing to Put More SPRING in Your Step

At the beginning of the year, I discussed some of the trends that men will see in the upcoming months. Since spring is approaching fast, I felt it was fitting to recap and delve into the refreshing new trends of spring. 2014 spring trends will include: nautical stripes, safari jackets, sea blues, grassy greens, fresh prints, and slip-on sneakers. To elaborate on nautical stripes, they will arrive in different widths and lengths. The attraction to this trend is that they look graphic and striking on every man. They are alsoRead More

This Website Will Change Your Life: The Useless Web

While Sophie’s first installment in this series of life-changing websites was on the serious end of the spectrum, this volume of the series is on the utterly inane and ridiculous side. While productivity and useful tools can certainly change your life, so can a website that can consume hours of your time doing unproductive things! Hey, nobody ever said “This Website Will Change Your Life” meant that it would change it for the BETTER. Alas, meet The Useless Web. The Useless Web is exactly what it sounds like: useless. ThisRead More

7 Things We Should Just Let Go Of

We could all take a lesson from Rose. Even though she never thought she’d have to let go of Jack, every once in a while, letting go is all there is left to do. Here are a few things we should let fall to the bottom of the sea, gone forever. 1. Safari Besides their private browsing (ahem) is there any use for this truly awful browser? It might have been a step up from NetScape but it comes in far below Firefox, Chrome and, yes, even Internet Explorer. ForRead More
1.  Mr.  Rogers                                                                                                                                                                  Yes, I do fancy a wholesome man in a cardigan like any other person, but envision the processes and melodies involved in getting intimate with a man who sings over buttoning his sweaters.  The action of sock removal in the heat of the moment would also be paired with a song to guide you through it.  This would occur for every clothing item removal and position change…any transition really.  Don’t engage in hanky-panky with Mr. Rogers unless you have seven hours. 2.  Read More

Axe vs. Dove: A Study in Advertising Techniques

Ethics in media are always fun. While certain companies have ignored the criticism and continued to air-brush and starve their models, others have taken a more wholesome approach – marketing their products to “real” women. Two companies are in particular contrast. See: Dove vs. Axe. But, in looking at the ethics of one vs the other, are they so different? There is little difference between an Axe commercial and a male sexual fantasy. Beautiful, thin women coming out in droves to stroke the head of a guy made desirable by hisRead More
Earlier this year, I wrote about the up and coming trends of 2014. As a much-anticipated spring emerges, I want to go more in-depth about the trends that you will see in women’s clothing this season. Each designer will produce their own version of the trend, but ultimately the overall concept will be the same. One fabrication that will be prevalent in the spring season will be sheer layers. These layers will be constructed of silks and organzas. Other universally used fabrications will be shiny metallics and translucent designs. TheseRead More

Act Like an Adult

So I’m going to assume most people reading this are over the age of 18. Therefore, you are an adult. Act like one. Here are seven situations in which I see people continuously act like lazy children and I CAN’T DEAL WITH IT ANYMORE.   1. Pick up after the messes you make. -We’ve all been there. You’re in a rush at the grocery store trying to make it home in time for the Bachelor. There’s that last item you need to grab so you run down the aisle withRead More
