Why Can’t Twitter Do What Instagram Just Did?
abuse

Instagram now offers a tool that automatically blocks comments if they include certain abusive words. It’s a wonderfully simple way of dealing with the harassment and the other nastiness that plagues so many of today’s online social networks, including the photo-happy, Facebook-owned Instagram. And it makes us wonder: Why aren’t others doing the same thing? Or, more specifically, why isn’t Twitter doing the same thing? Harassment and hate speech is a pretty serious problem on the Internet, and particularly on...

Fashion

It’s a fact that there is no better time than Fashion Week to spot New York’s best-dressed.

From colorful button downs to denim on denim action, these scholars really know how to catch an eye. Here’s hoping these guys stick with their bright and brilliant style even through the cold winter...

Would You Eat Salad On Your Nachos?
Food

Our couch is practically a member of the family. At 12+ years old, it has been around since before my husband and I were married, it has survived multiple moves (including being hoisted up over a second-floor balcony), and it served as our guest bed for years until we had an actual extra bedroom with a real bed in it. And for most of our couch’s life, it served as our dining spot as well. It’s not that we didn’t always...

Brooklyn

Time to hop on the L train people. We’ve prepped your BK hipster 101 guide. You will begin the day pretending to be vegan and probably end the day covered in body paint, hugging the remains of a yoga mat, and wearing your new vintage sunglasses in the dark, while eating a pineapple hot dog in a shoe box. What’s with the neon lights? And what time is it anyways? That doesn’t even matter in hipster land, proceed!...

Leigh Lezark Is Pregnant & Engaged!
Celebrities

Ohmigod, has it really been that long since we’ve used our fake IDs at Don Hill’s to dance all night to The Misshapes? Guess so, because resident DJ turned It Girl turned It Girl DJ, Leigh Lezark is all sorts of settling down these days. Not that we expect her to move to New Jersey anytime soon. Last week, Leigh announced her engagement to longtime BF Randy D’Amico, who is apparently a neurosurgeon, while they were on holiday in Italy. Romantic!  Now this...

9 Trendsetting Decor Ideas For Your Wedding
Weddings 101

The pendulum has really swung recently when it comes to the world of wedding decor. When I got married a mere five years ago, it was still a really sparkly, shiny little bubble. Picture lots of brightly lit ballrooms and black limousines, tightly clipped and domed floral bouquets, plated chicken and champagne flutes, you get the gist. This was back in the olden days, pre-popular wedding blogs and pre-Pinterest — pre the whole barn-wedding phenomenon. Nowadays, even the most upscale...

Not Your Average Model: 5 Faces To Follow This NYFW
Fashion Week

Growing up, Barbie dolls were my very own prized possessions in my toy box. They were the perfect addition to my fantasy world in the domain of my imagination – tall, stick-skinny, perfectly symmetrical face proportions, straight bleached white teeth, and smooth silky straight hair. Except for the fact that it gave me the wrong perception of beauty.  Now, even Barbie dolls have been refurbished, aimed to better fit the realistic body standards of everyday girls and boys of varying...

How The Fashion World Is Remembering Bill Cunningham This Week
Fashion Week

It’s our very first New York Fashion week without the master, the godfather of street style, Bill Cunningham. The entire style set mourned the loss of that discerning eye, his ever-present bike, and that standout blue jacket this summer. But no one here is forgetting him. This season, photographers paid tribute to their predecessor on opening day at Moynihan Station, as IMG provided the pit with blue workman’s jackets modeled after the one Bill made so famous.  Bryant Park also hosted...

Vizio Takes On Sonos With Its Double-Duty Wireless Speakers
bluetooth speakers

Sonos speakers are great, and they’ve popularized multi-room wireless audio. They still have weaknesses. They don’t do Bluetooth, they need to be plugged into power outlets, and even when Sonos opens itself up to Spotify early next year, you need Sonos’s app to play music from other sources. Vizio sees those shortcomings as opportunities. The company has been making soundbars to slot under its affordable televisions a while, but its new SmartCast Crave speakers are its first standalone speakers designed...

How To Not Be Basic At Fashion Week
Fashion Week

The debate that riddles every actual attendee’s mind at Fashion Week: Is it worse to be basic or is it worse to be too much? The answer, of course, is basic and God help you if you roll up to the shows in anything other than a perfectly curated ensemble planned months in advance. We’re kind of kidding here but also kind of not. So how should you navigate the sometimes dangerous path to street style stardom? Editor, boss babe, and...
