The Best and Worst (Okay, Mostly Worst) Edible Lingerie You Can Buy For Valentine's Day
Huffington Post - 12 days
By Natalie B. Compton for GQ. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, couples across the country are digging deep for hot new ways to do the sex with each other. Some of those ideas will be great; and many, many more of them will be bad. Like buying her edible underwear-levels of bad. In the interest of Service Journalism, we trawled Amazon dot com for some of the best-selling edible underwear options out there. And then we ate them. Here they are ranked, from worst to best. 6. Edible Thong for Women, Chocolate and Strawberry First impression: Huge departure from the picture on the box. What you see on the packaging makes the thong look like a sexy tie-string bikini that would be perfect for a beach vacation in Brazil. In reality, it looks like a crinkly trash bag with red drawstrings. On the body: Not flattering at all. The backside is too thick; it looks like you’re censoring your own butt crack. When tying it on, I ripped one of the drawstrings, ruining any oppor ...

Ugg Boots Are Getting A Designer Overhaul
Huffington Post - about 1 month
By Max Berlinger for GQ. Phillip Lim is bringing his talents to the incredibly cozy (but not always stylish) iconic footwear. We've seen the rise of Birkenstocks, high-end water socks gain traction, and even the return of square-toed shoes, so when it comes to crazy footwear trends, we're pretty hard to shock. And yet, when we caught wind that Californian brand Ugg — whose boots were most famously seen on trendy teenage girls in the early aughts — was given the nod of approval by New York design whiz Phillip Lim, even we were a little taken aback. RELATED: Every Piece from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collaboration The limited-edition capsule Ugg boot collection will consist of four styles to be sold as part of the brand 3.1 Phillip Lim's fall-winter 2017 collection, to be shown next week in Paris. "As a designer, I am constantly interested in exploring unexpected elements to create new aesthetic propositions," Lim said of his riff on the classic boot silhouette, which has ...

How to Make the Right Decision
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Why we choose the paths we do, and how knowing the origin of our desires can help the things we want most come true. Remember that one, oh-so-tormenting scene in "The Notebook"? When Noah (Ryan Gosling) questions if Allie (Rachel McAdams) wants to be with him after they'd spent a romance-filled week together, even though she was engaged to another man? "What do you want?" Noah demands of Allie after their time together came to an end. Allie cringes and simply responds she "has to go" before slamming the car door shut and speeding away faster than a Manhattan-based cabbie who finds himself in Brooklyn. Did Allie not have an answer? Was she scared of making the right choice between Ryan Gosling or James Marsden? (Um, can you go wrong?!) But Allie isn't alone in her inability to make a choice. From small decisions -- "Should I get the passion fruit or the mango sorbet?" -- to more serious ones, "Should I break it off with Brendan, or wait until he gets a job?" -- we're contin ...

13 Celebrities Who Gave Their Daughters Gender-Neutral Names
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Amidst a swirl of rumored options, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have finally confirmed their baby daughter's name: James. While it may not seem like a typical girl name, James is just one of many recent examples celebrities giving their daughters names traditionally reserved for boys. Here are 13 celebrity baby girl names going in a more unisex direction. Arlo Actor-comedian-stuntman Johnny Knoxville rose to fame as part of MTV’s "Jackass" empire. He’s the father of three: daughter Madison, son Rocko Akira, and daughter Arlo Lemoyne Yoko. Let’s just say that his taste in names has gotten more and more daring as the years have gone by. While Arlo might seem like a wacky choice for a girl, with Harlow and Marlowe in vogue, it’s not a stretch to imagine parents considering Arlo, too. Casper Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf were inspired to name their son Pilot after a song lyric. More than a decade later, Pilot is still a go-to name for wacky baby name lists. (I’m not sur ...

ABC News - about 3 years
James Marsden is busy man. After starring in "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," the actor has almost a half dozen films set to come out in 2014.

7 Newly Popular Baby Names That Have Been Hiding In Plain Sight
Huffington Post - about 3 years
By Linda Rosenkrantz for Nameberry It always strikes me as somewhat curious when a name that has been hidden in plain sight for decades -- or longer -- attached to a significant literary or real life character will suddenly pop into the zeitgeist and take off. Sometimes the contributing factors are obvious -- sharing with a more recent celebrity (looking at you, Ms Johansson) or its discovery by the parents of a "starbaby." And sometimes, it just remains a mystery. Here are some prominent examples. Atticus The Harper Lee novel To Kill a Mockingbird was published in 1960, and the movie, starring Gregory Peck as principled lawyer and role-model dad Atticus Finch, was released two years later. Between then and now, the book has been a mainstay of English class curricula, working its way into the collective consciousness of future baby namers, while Atticus Finch was voted the greatest hero of American film by the AFI. But why Atticus now? There were five baby boys bearing thi ...
