  A press release featuring a new line of lingerie in the style of Victoria’s Secret made its way onto the web this week, featuring a slew of slogans and phrases heralding the importance of communication and consent between sexual partners. And while it would be lovely to imagine that this is evidence of Victoria’s Secret responding to recent criticism by making an effort to push a consent-based message, the phantom line of panties appears to be an unaffiliated knockoff.

It’s about time that Hasbro began marketing their famous Easy-Bake Oven, which has been aimed towards preteen girls since its conception in the 1960s, in a more gender-neutral manner. Inspired by her little brother, one 13-year-old New Jersey girl has started a petition on Change.org to get the company to make the toy oven more boy-friendly. McKenna Pope of Garfield, N.J. wants the company to drop its all-girl advertising in hopes that boys like her 4-year-old brother will be more comfortable asking for a stereotypically 'girly' toy this holiday season.

  We're very curious about a controversial new documentary (opening in the U.S. this weekend) that shines a critical light on the Big Pink.

I'm also all for post-Valentine's Day candy sales (yum!). I think Valentine's Day is as good a day as any to spread a little love in the world, whether that means sending your bestie surprise macaroons from the macaroon queen, buying yourself a little "something something," spending quality time with your bf/gf, or just smiling to strangers a bit more (not in a creepy way).

Of all the "perfect home" bloggers out there on the internet, I think I like Yvestown.com  the best. This Belgium-based blogger lives in an old house that she is in the process of renovating and redecorating, and her style is fresh and clean but also cozy and sweet, a combination that I really love. And homegirl does a lot with pink. The way she uses it it always looks inviting, never cloying; girly but not Barbie. (all images above photographed by Yvonne Eijkenduijn and borrowed from  Yvestown.com) She's inspired me to try and use some touches of pink in my home as well. Read More
