I am Wild.

BY Team Intern in General

  True story! It's a perfume just pour moi! We got these cute perfumes from Danica and I was the lucky lady to try them out.  I dig the Wild version because my nose can easily sniff out the Jasmine, one of my favorite scents. I normally veer away from anything fruity, which would give me an all-day starbursts crave.  However, in this the summery peach and passion fruit isn't at all overwhelming, but a welcome surprise amongst that fresh jasmine ...

BY Team Intern in General

  What celebrities are you living in the past for? After discussing the new Batman movie that is coming out, I confessed that Christian Bale circa Little Women was the man of my dreams... but then Tara reminded me of the 1992 classic musical The Newsies which not only made a New York accent hot, but made Brooklyn cool long before Brooklyn got hip. Forget Christian Bale! Spot, you'll always be the man of my eleven year old heart. (image taken from ... Read More

Comics for Ladies

BY Sarah J. in General

So I'm a giant comic geek, but I despair over the lack of comics aimed at the ladies. There's plenty out there that I love, still, but it makes me happy to see that DC Comics has started an entire girl-centric line, Minx. The newest Minx book is The New York Four, by Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly, who teamed up before this on the superb Local, which is also amazing and girl-friendly. The New York Four is the story of four NYU students finding their way around the ... Read More
