9 Foods That Are (Possibly) Better Than Sex

2014 July 29

Some things are simply irresistible.

Like sex with a man who takes your breath away when your eyes meet his; an iced-cold drink on a sweltering summer day; and these nine ridiculously caloric foods. We applaud anyone with the discipline to eat nothing but kale and quinoa the rest of her life, but even the wisest doctors in the land say it’s perfectly ok to splurge, as long as it’s once in a while. And we mean ONCE IN A WHILE.

1. Ice Cream

Win Tickets to 50 Shades! The Musical in NYC

2014 July 17

Whether you’re a 50 Shades of Grey fanatic or you couldn’t get through the first 10 pages…

You’ll enjoy 50 Shades! The Musical – The Original Parody, now playing Off-Broadway at the Elektra Theatre in New York City.

Be prepared for a bit of raunch, and a lot of skin (no nudity, however)! The story starts with Carol, Pam, and Bev deciding the next selection for their book club. When they choose 50 Shades of Grey, the fun (or should we say, fantasy) begins. Clever lyrics, lively dancing and a cavorting cast of real characters, from virginal college student, Anastasia, to illustrious businessman, Christian Grey (this one has a paunch to go with the raunch).

8 Things Our Grown “Kids” Love To Hate About Us

2014 July 8

We asked 20-somethings to tell us how we really irritate them.

It doesn’t matter who you are. Generation Y “kids” have all kinds of hang-ups about us. Here’s what they had to say, but we know they still love us!

1. You think you’re so smart
about the Internet…

But you’re hopeless without Google

Where There’s a Will, Nothing Gets in the Way

2014 July 8

None of us enjoys thinking about our demise, but it’s crucial to understand why we need to prepare a will, and to get it done, pronto! Simply put, this legal document clearly explains how we wish to have our “estate” distributed when we’re gone. This includes our bank accounts, property, financial investments, and material possessions, from jewellery to photo albums. If we don’t leave a will, the government takes control of our estate and decides who gets it, making it even more difficult for our family during an already stressful time.

A properly drafted will puts us in control and ensures that our exact wishes are carried out.

Even if you aren’t leaving a king’s ransom, you’ll still want your worldly possessions to go to the beneficiaries of your choice, not to some long lost relatives who you haven’t seen in decades.

You can write your own will. As long as it’s witnessed and signed properly, it’s just as valid as if a high-priced lawyer drafted it. Of course, the more complicated and extensive your estate, the more likely you’ll want and need an attorney who specializes in wills to help guide you through the process, to whom do you want to leave the care of your young children? Who gets the country house outside of London, the apartment in Paris and the beach house in the Hamptons? Who will pay your debts?

We’ve Got You Covered

2014 June 17

Beach coverups help protect us from the sun’s harmful rays, hide what we’d prefer to keep under wraps, and can make us look adorable, even when we’re not near water.

A Show of Arms

Make a splash in a low-cut, one-piece outfit that shows off just the right amount of skin and lets you move with ease from day to night.
