“Sleeping Beauty” sounds much nicer than “Slugabed,” doesn’t it?
Fashion and art have always been inextricably intertwined, but 2013 took their relationship next level. But no seriously, it is kind of like what sex is when you’re single — everybody’s doing it. Jeff Koons is doing it with Lady Gaga, Damien Hirst is doing it with Alexander McQueen, Yayoi Kusama is doing it George Clooney, and Will Cotton is doing it with food (macarons, to be precise).
We’d suggest doubling up — adopting out inanimate critters can be just as torturous as parting with the real thing.
They don’t always have to mean it when they say “You shouldn’t have”.
She was raised on LiveJournal and lives on Tumblr, she crafts memes like they’re artisanal cupcakes, and gets pissed that real cats can’t leave trails of rainbows as they soar through the air wearing Pop-Tarts.
While everybody likes music, the music junkie lives music. And when sound waves are practically your source of air supply, there’s no more stifling time that Christmas.

You say “steal,” I say “joint custody with unlimited visitation rights.”
You’ll have to file for bankruptcy as soon as businesses reopen, but at least she might let you steal a spritz of her new $865 Clive Christian perfume, have a go on her water-propelled jetpack, or keep a couple of the diamonds that fell off her $51,000 iced manicure.
She shows up to brunch with her yoga mat (and orders coffee if it’s a cheat day), greets you with “Namaste” and makes you Instagram her in the Eka Pada Koundinyanasana II pose. No, she’s not Miranda Kerr, she’s your yogic friend
She won’t sleep without a dreamcatcher, insists on reading your horoscope, and never throws away handwritten notes. She’s your friend The Occultist, and though she has little taste for red-nosed reindeer or Mariah Carey‘s ‘All I Want for Christmas,’ you should probably still get her a gift.
Gifts for the one who scours eBay for bottles of Spice Girls ‘Impulse’, refuses to buy music in mp3 form, never deleted her MySpace profile and has the dial up modem sound effect as her ring tone.
Now that Kate Middleton’s been pregnant for approximately three years, there’s finally a royal birth on the horizon! And the horizon is close – her due date is this Saturday, to be precise.
Around these parts, “double-duty” is usually synonymous with “you can wear this in two different social settings and not look totally stupid.” That’s all fine and dandy, but sometimes, we like to defy expectations and go for
men pieces that are ridiculously good-looking and have some substance.

Your mom is a superstar. She was never squeamish when you skinned your knee. She sent you cards to heal a broken heart (or just because). She gave you her secret recipes and secrets to success, and showed you how to be the awesome lady you are. Seems pretty obvious that your mama dearest likes to lend a helping hand, so what better way to show you appreciate all she does, than by giving her a gift that gives back to women around the world?
