How To Ward Off a Crush & Be Crushed On

11:00 AM

It might have happened to you. That moment you become a little fearful, yet somewhat flattered, of someone who is obsessing over you. He or she may show up uninvited or constantly text/call/e-mail you even though you provide little to no response. You don’t have the heart to tell him or her to leave you alone, or maybe you do but he or she mistook your straight-forwardness for playing hard-to-get.

Keep on reading for ways to ward off a hardcore crush and learn how to be crushed on! (more…)

Personalize Your iPhone Case…With Tape?

12:54 PM

My mom always jokes that I'm an 80-year-old woman (no disrespect!) stuck in a 22-year-old body and, to an extent, I don't disagree. I'm all about DIY projects and crafting unique, adorable items I find online through completely random blogs. I get bored pretty quickly after having the same nail color on for more than a week, keeping the same phone case on for months, etc. Example: I bought a new iPhone case three days ago and I'm already done with it.

Look out for a cool and simple DIY iPhone case that no one else will have after the jump! (more…)

So You Want to Be a New Yorker? Read This!

11:15 AM

You want be a Carrie Bradshaw, Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf or whatever overly dramatic character from Glee that’s living the glamorous life in the city. Take it from a relatively new New Yorker – it’s not like that. Granted my life is full of dramatic, fantastic, unexplainable events worthy of a Lifetime movie (lookout for the premiere in 30 years) but it's still mostly UN-glamorous. (more…)

NYC Pride Parade: Straight People Rock Rainbows Too

11:48 AM

Gay PrideHappy Pride! The pride parade is something I always look forward to every year I’m in New York City, especially this year with the death of DOMA. A couple was carrying a poster that read “Together for 20 years, married for 8, finally legal.” People lined the streets from Midtown on 5th Avenue all the way down to Greenwich, watching from behind the barricades or from apartment windows and balconies.

Advice on How To Get a Job – From Someone Who Has a Job

11:15 AM

The unspoken secret in life is that no one knows what they’re doing. The people we consider “smart” are just better at guessing what’s to come. The president, Heidi Klum, your mom – they’re all winging it. If you want to get what you want, more specifically a job, you just have to convince everyone else that you know what you’re doing. The world is a superficial place where we assume things based on what we’ve experienced or stereotypes we’ve learned. Your first impression is EVERYTHING. Everything.

I understand wanting to be a wild, free individual and not wanting to cater to society and give in to social norms – but having pink cotton candy hair is not the most important thing. Think about who has had pink hair – P!nk, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, circus performers. If you’re applying for positions similar to theirs, then go ahead and dye your hair, otherwise I’m not sure if I’d trust a Nicki Minaj look-alike doing my taxes. (more…)

Video on Instagram to Change Social Media?

3:54 PM

Today Instagram released their new Video on Instagram feature that is going to shut down Vine (and possibly Keek), in my opinion, and, potentially change the way businesses connect with customers. Instagram has become a social outlet for people all over the world to share their most intimate, humorous, proud and random moments. Ever since it was bought by Facebook, Instagram has been making subtle changes to become the “big dog” in social media. (more…)

How to Be a Good Liar: The Truth About Lying

10:09 AM

I lie, you lie, we all lie. If you’re saying to yourself as you read this that you don’t lie – then you just lied.

Get over yourself.

It’s not okay to lie as Pinocchio taught us all as small children. But the truth is your nose won’t grow and YOU WILL GET EATEN ALIVE in the real world if you don’t learn to do it correctly. So what I’m saying is – it is okay, even necessary, to lie in certain situations. It’ll get where you want to go, you can protect people’s feelings (including your own), and it makes your stories more interesting. Just don’t be a jerk and lie in critical or immoral situations. I’m not your mom – you know the situations I’m talking about. (more…)
