I know how to spatchcock a chicken, build a tomato cage out of chicken wire, and shoot a bow and arrow. I've lived in New York City for almost 20 years, which makes me official. Before joining The Stir I contributed to blogs like Civil Eats and One Little Bite. I lean in because I'm hard of hearing.
I want to start by saying NO ONE is actually serious about this "jewelry" -- it's just a silly fashion stunt. Silly? Gross is more like it. At a fashion show in London, designerMeadham Kirchhoff put a "bloody" tampon earring on a model and sent her down the runway. Ew, right? WHY???
The blood on the earring wasn't real. So at least there's that.
Kirchhoff's does "punk-style" designs that are meant to be provocative, so the earring fit right in. The invites to the fashion show read, "Reject Everything!" "Okay!" said everyone. "We're definitely rejecting that earring."
That said, you obviously want to see what we're talking about.
Ladies, we've got the perfect 'do for your busy self! It's a cool, simple knotted bun we spotted backstage at an Erin Fetherston fashion show. But here's the thing: The style was created by a mom and dad.

Remember your body before the baby? Miss it? Even if you lose the pregnancy weight quickly after the delivery, pregnancy has a way of rearranging your parts. Know what I mean? You've been stretched. You're puckered. Your belly button is not where you left it nine months ago.
And when people talk about getting back into shape? SIGH. You just feel tired.
Well help is on the way: Celeb trainer and pregnancy fitness expert Andrea Orbeck created 7 postpartum workouts perfect for getting YOU back into shape -- starting with your belly! Check out these simple but effective exercises in this slideshow.
Hey everybody, yesterday was Eric Johnson's birthday -- and wife Jessica Simpson was the first to wish him a happy one. She posted a photo of the two of them last night on Instagram captioned "Happy Birthday Husband of Mine." He looks relaxed in a T-shirt and baseball cap. But Simpson is all turned out in a little black halter and big, leaf-shaped earrings. And wow -- check out that bold, red lipstick!
It looks like all those hard pre-wedding workouts are still paying off for Jessica. She looks sensational, doesn't she? I bet she's keeping them up. And is it me, or does someone really love black? That seems to be Simpson's favorite color to wear these days -- and we can see why. It's incredibly flattering on her.
The domestic abuse scandals plaguing the NFL have just gotten a lot uglier, and they're dragging many moms' favorite cosmetics into the mud. Makeup brand CoverGirl signed up as the NFL's beauty sponsor long before the Ray Rice abuse video surfaced. Their original concept was fun: Match your makeup colors to your favorite team's colors.
But over the weekend, a photoshopped version of CoverGirl's NFL ad went viral. It shows the model with a violently bruised eye and calls for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's resignation with the hashtag #GoodellMustGo. Have you seen this picture?
