The Lost Girls?

BY Team Intern in General

Did anyone read this article from The New York Times last week? Admissions deans from top women’s colleges—including Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, and Smith—recently spent some time recruiting female students in the Middle East. Seems like it could be a sweet deal: despite the best efforts of single-sex supporters like “boy-crisis” ringleader Leonard Sax, a lot of American high school females might not even consider applying to a ...

  Ever since the publication of ‘Skinny Bitch’, it seems to me like this crazy new fad diet called ‘veganism’ has been popping up all over the mainstream media,* from strip clubs to punk rock cooking shows to the exploding going green movement to America's Sweetheart Oprah to even (cue suspenseful music) feminism! With all the good press veganism has gotten lately, much of the bad press is fading into the background, such as veganism ... Read More

 The worst feeling during the summer is having my body stick to leather, whether it's car seats, leather corsets during S&M night at the local rave, or purses. That's why the number one item on my summer shopping list is a lightweight purse. These two bags from Kid Robot do well to hold all my junk while still giving some flair to my outfits. They also have a bazillion pockets held either by zippers or my personal favorite, magnets. Keep cool during this ... Read More

My first fondant cake

BY Team Intern in General

Yesterday was my dads birthday and also my folks 20th anniversary.  I spent all weekend making this cake, and I think the results were smashing. Read more after the jump.

So I figured I'd give them a wonderful meal at my exclusive restaurant , Chez Claire (aka my kitchen).  Dinner was: A marinated shell steak, a garlic mashed potato, and fresh creamed spinach.  The Cake: ...

     So since Jess posted her favorite 'avoid the heat at all costs' indoor activity, I figured I would post mine for even more things to do for hot (in all senses of the word) crafty girls. Lately ever since I found this website, stencilpunks, I have been addicted to making stencils. Nothing in my path has escaped my stenciling rampage, tee shirts, pants, jewelry boxes, everything. Even the cats gone into hiding. For the longest time, I wanted ... Read More
  Going outside in this 97˚ weather means instantly melting into a big, sweaty Intern puddle, so I’ve been spending some quality indoor-time with the Internet lately. And, as it turns out, there is a goldmine of heat-wave-proof, free paper toy patterns at this site just begging to be downloaded, folded, and propped up next to a desk fan somewhere.The idea is that you download these super-cute PDF-files onto your computer, print them out on ...
