Boobs have been big this year! No, wait, I mean it’s been a big year for boobs in pop culture.

This weekend, amidst my hectic schedule of clicking "Next Episode" on Netflix, I was introduced to the app ThirdLove. The just-launched app promises to fit the user for the perfect bra.

Nevertheless, I was intrigued by ThirdLove. Thanks to ... Read More

This HYSTERICAL CollegeHumor video addresses that “dumb double standard” in the TV industry that’s got so many ladies’ feathers ruffled. No, not the pay grade one … or the leading actress/actor ratio one… or the one where “30 Rock” isn’t on the air anymore. (Not quite a double standard but an issue I, as a woman, have.)
These female comedians have “a boner to pick” with HBO … for not giving us the D.

Terrariums are great for those folks who weren't born with a green thumb. At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, you seriously just set it and forget it. (Okay, so it's more like you mist it and forget it, but you get the point.) Twig Terrariums is a "verdant venture" between two friends, Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow. Their shop in Gowanus, Brooklyn boasts a variety of terrariums (moss, plant, succulent, and air plant), DIY ... Read More

Shots of headless, cleavage baring chests repping beloved college teams are submitted via email and twitter to become the boobs of the day in an effort to spread team spirit and good luck. The ladies behind the movement claim that it is “totally feminist.” Except it’s not.
The good luck ... Read More

Just when you thought that social media couldn’t possibly get any more invasive, there’s MyFreeImplants.com—a site dedicated to helping ladies obtain free breast implants over the Web. Well, not free, exactly. The surgical bills are footed by male benefactors (their term), other members of the site who bestow donations upon women via email.
Founded in 2005 by a couple of Nice Guys, MyFreeImplants.com ... Read More

It's Election Day! And everyone is really, really tense. I'm no exception: just the other day, an acquaintance mentioned that she really doesn't care who wins, and instead of engaging said person in thoughtful dialogue, I yelled ROE VERSUS WADE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD and burst into tears.
So ANYWAY! Supreme Crafty Lady Callie discovered this gem yesterday and it had us all ROFLcoptering around the office. I don't know how to explain it, and to ... Read More
