You hear men declare themselves as either a booty man, a leg man or a boob man all the time. So, I have been curious to find out where the majority of men land on this sensual topic. As any diligent researcher finds her answers, I once again turned to my Twitter friends and tweeted: Are you an a** man, leg man or boob man? Explain your answers please!
Being a Scorpio, one of our main characteristics is having skeletons in the closet. Seeing that I wrote eight autobiographies, I’ve pretty much exposed every last skeleton I have. It has also caused my mom to go grey earlier than she probably would have. The reason I decided to write about secrets is because of those around me who still have them. I’m amazed to watch them work so hard to keep something I would consider so miniscule hidden from their loved ones.
Research substantiates that light can affect mental state for the better — a necessity with Chicago’s bleary March weather. So look for a home that can provide a little extra sunshine. “Rooms that don’t get a lot of light can feel smaller than they are and depressing,” notes Coldwell Banker broker Jennifer Ames (call 773-908-3632). That explains why real estate brokers routinely turn on every light in a place before they show it — even at high noon. “People want bright, airy spaces and light increases that impression,” notes Ames.
Alexi Giannoulias strides with purpose into Kanela Breakfast Club in Old Town, his newest venture. He’s dual-wielding a BlackBerry and an iPhone, and while he’ll be sitting down for coffee and eggs, he has plenty to accomplish as he takes on a new role: restaurateur.
I’m so proud of my #noFatTuesday group. Go big or go home! I’m down to 130, but I think that’s because I had the flu. But whatever! I’m on the way down. You can still join. It’s not too late. For all of you guys hanging in there… Woo hoo!!! Lets do this sh*t!
It took Doug Zweig 2 ½ years to catch Naomi Couillard’s attention. Both worked as consultants for Allianz Life Insurance Co. of North America in Minneapolis in 2007, and Zweig says he noticed Couillard in the office almost immediately. Though at the time he claimed it was her “kind personality” that caught his eye, he now jokes that it was “a pair of pants that she looked really, really good in.” After several email flirtations went nowhere, Zweig finally decided to ask Couillard out in person. “Persistence really paid off,” he laughs. The duo hit it off immediately and decided to move to Chicago together for work in 2010. They got engaged two years later — he proposed while they were relaxing at home on a lazy Saturday morning.
Are you a picture lover or hater? Do you run and hide when you see a camera or do you relish every photo opportunity? Taking pictures may not be your cup of tea, but in this day and age, having your photo posted all over Facebook or Instagram is pretty much guaranteed. Perhaps you’re one of the lucky ones and you appear flawless in every picture you take, but if you know you’re attractive and your photos don’t do you justice, read on.
It’s almost impossible to get Leandra Medine, founder of hit fashion blog Man Repeller, to be serious. In an interview about her new capsule collection, a whimsical line of dresses and separates designed in conjunction with designer Chelsey Santry of West Coast-based line PJK, the blogger answers nearly every question with playful sarcasm. When asked where the two met, she deadpans, “On Craigslist, in the Random Encounters section.” Both women — who were set up by their respective agents because of their sartorial similarities — erupt into laughter.
