I gave up sugar a few weeks ago, after realizing it was the basis of much of what I was eating. A hot chocolate (or 2) here, some chocolate sorbet there, the occasional poptart, pumpkin bread with chocolate chips, chocolate hazelnut biscotti—yes, there was definite theme going on. The detox was brutal but now I'm finding I don't miss it.
But, a few days ago, I fell back under its spell. I was browsing etsy.com and came across homemade chocolate ... Read More

Cupcakes are delicious. It is a proven scientific fact. I for one believe that cupcakes should be one of the major food groups.

We’ve all read about or watched a movie about the terrifying processed food industry and its effects on how we live. The blame has reasonably been put on the corporations that somehow manage to produce modified “food” in record time, but the death of the family meal has been blamed for the increased need of (or addiction to) fast food. And who is to blame for the death of the family meal? Women, or specifically second-wave feminists, according to ... Read More

Why don't women need to wear watches? Because there's a clock on the stove! I'm running out of good sexist jokes, but I think I heard that one in middle school and somehow it stuck with me. Of all the stupid things you can say about women, that they belong in the kitchen is a classic. Or rather, it's outdated. With each year, we move farther and farther from a society that says it's a woman's job to cook. Unfortunately, our ... Read More

Last week I gave up sugar. I realized that while I thought I was a relatively healthy eater, I was basically living sugar fix to sugar fix with not much in between. Hot chocolate in the morning. Lunch time iced coffee with half and half and double splenda, a squirt or two of chocolate syrup stirred in. Chocolate sorbet on the way home from yoga. Mini ice cream cones before I went to sleep. A salad or some pasta thrown in at points, but just as ... Read More

The Sex and the City 2 trailer has been out for a while but I've been avoiding it. As a former resident of the Persian Gulf, I dreaded what it might look like when our fearless foursome landed in the desert. But after finally getting around to reading this month's issue of Vogue featuring Sarah Jessica Parker, I had to.

My local coffee shop in NYC has been promoting a new product called Fat Pig. The concept and packaging almost feel like a design student’s portfolio project, edgier than you’d expect to actually see produced in real life. Each think square brick is wrapped in hot pink foil, on top of that, a hot pink wrapper imprinted with a pig’s snout. So, should you want to be cute/funny/silly/entertaining/flirty, you hold the bar up to your face and boom: ... Read More

Over the last ten episodes, the ladies of RuPaul’s drag race made us laugh, made us cry, made us know fierce. And while they learned from Ru, they taught us about teamwork, self-respect, and how to make your country outfit really transition with a rip-away skirt. On Monday, a new drag superstar was born. Tyra Sanchez was the controversial choice for queen of the queens, and below, she lets us know she’s here. Work.

I'm not really into sports. And I'm not really into Nike either. And I don't really pay that much attention to sports endorsements BUT when Nike endorses sexual assault offenders even I'm like, "What the hell, Nike? You managed to not meet the exceedingly low expectations I have for you."
