Unfriend.

A verb. To “unfriend”. Yes, it has been 10 years since this verb was created. A verb that made cutting people out of your life an actual act. Cut them off your friend list and you no longer need to know about them. Who has in-person interactions anymore, anyway ;)

This act is especially true when it comes to relationships. Breaking up with someone no longer involves the one goodbye (Or more in some cases). Thanks to Facebook we now have the added “joy” of seeing what our exes do on Facebook and the “wonderful” lives they lead. And so the unfriending begins. You just do not want to keep seeing their status updates and musings, so you have to make the extra step to unfriend them!

Thank you Facebook for not only allowing us the opportunity to see updates from those we choose not to. But also allowing us to cut them out of our life. Unfriend.

Who am I kidding? When it boils down to the cold, dark facts, I just want everyone to know that I’m from New York.

PLAY it right

Picking a date spot can be hard.  After all, you learn a lot about someone through their date picks.  Now, let’s say it’s your turn to pick a place.  A new place in NYC may have added a new option to the list.  PLAY at the Museum of Sex takes dating to a new level.  

Now being that I am…(dare I say it) SINGLE,  I am not sure this is the best place to frequent.  Probably not the best place to take someone on a first date.  Nope, not a first impression I am looking to make.  But when Mr. Right DOES come along this may be interesting.  Their menu, featured above, is enough to get any one excited.  

So have a visit and let me know if it’s worth visiting. I think it will definitely make for an unusual date.

“A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to want to take it off you,” - French novelist, Françoise Sagan.

A nice thought right?  Ok, so how about some dresses to inspire the thought.  Not because it is winter does not mean we cannot dress to impress and possibly undress…

A great idea!

HOLIDAYS.
It is my favorite time of year and I cannot wait to get dressed up in sparkles. Yes, I said it… sparkles.  Cliche, perhaps, but this is an outfit you just can’t deny.  
McQueen is a genius.

Thick eyebrows are back!! Yes, and as a proud owner of bold brows I am ecstatic to see models flaunt amazingly thick brows.  Ok, Brooke Shields may have been the original flaunter of thick eyebrows, but today we can add a few more top models to the list. Models who make me proud to be a non-plucker.  Yes, I listened to my mother when I was a teenager and didn’t touch my eyebrows.  Dare I say…my mother was right?!  Ok fine. I owe my bold eyebrows to her.  Perhaps, these models may have their mom’s to thank as well.  So ladies, own those bold brows and let them frame your face.  I’m not saying bold is the only way to brow, but I do believe flaunting daring brows deserves a high brow.
