Dear E. Jean: The day after my houseguests arrived from Iowa, I fell off a scaffolding, broke my leg, and badly cut the other. So now I’m living on a foldout sofa in the living room with no privacy, taking heavy doses of painkillers, and feeling angry and frustrated—particularly about the horrible, messy state of

Let’s! Talk! About! Reading! There are so many different ways that one can read. One can curl up on the sofa with a good book, poring over pages and pages of prose. One can read by assessing a situation using your instincts or powers of observation, as in “reading a room.” One can also “read”
Explaining the premise of Black Mirror to the uninitiated is tricky. Series without a through line never lend themselves to a run-down as easily as a one-hour network drama, but Black Mirror, the British Channel 4 original that now lives on Netflix, is beyond. Some episodes are dystopian, others idyllic; some seem to be decades
Putting in very little work to lose inches off your body may sound like a Christmas miracle, but that’s what Sculpsure—the latest in non-invasive, body contouring—claims can happen in just a 25 minute procedure.

Since Balenciaga presented a runway full of rainbow-brite tights, we’ve had… difficulty incorporating them into an IRL wardrobe. One misstep and you unknowingly regress with an outfit consisting of matching houndstooth, headbands, and statement necklaces—that’s full-Blair Waldorf, but with a long decade separating you and the height of her iconic style. ‘Twas cute at the
If 2017 didn’t make it abundantly clear, it’s Rihanna’s world and we’re just living in it. From Fenty Beauty, Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year award, the only correctly dressed attendee of the Met Gala, Ocean’s 8, the silencing of body shamers, the Barbados Crop Over festival outfit, a sixth ELLE cover (plus Dazed, Vogue Paris,

Dear E. Jean: My boyfriend is shocked when I don’t know a seventeenth-century historical event or an eighteenth-century philosopher. He sometimes belittles my taste in books and movies. Other times he simply outshines me. We both took standardized tests for law school, for example, and he scored far better. He also landed a more lucrative
Chances are you’ve heard all sides of how marijuana can affect anxiety. While cannabis can have a calming effect for some people, it can also induce a panic attack for others. And aside from all that, some people just don’t want to experience a high or feel intoxicated at all, but they do want to
The author on stage with her band. As the singer, I often griped at my bandmates for being too loud. But on this particular day five years ago, the volume was deafening, downright painful. “I’m in physical pain!” I hollered. “It’s too loud!” My bandmates looked confused; they stared at me as I fell to
The highly anticipated new season of American Crime Story will be released in a few short weeks, but FX just released a new video giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show and revealing why they decided to cover the murder of Gianni Versace this season.

It’s been over a year(!) since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election, and the American people still can’t help but admire the former secretary of state. According to a recent Gallup poll, Clinton is the most admired woman by Americans, edging out Michelle Obama by two percent. This means Clinton has now been named
Picture it: Times Square, New Year’s Eve 2017. Mariah Carey has just finished giving the performance of her life. The noise in of the crowd is deafening; screams of adoration mix with yelps of anticipation and the stamping of feet trying desperately to stay warm. The air in New York City is electric. At home,
Saint Laurent Imaxtree.com Advertisement – Continue Reading Below Sitting beneath the lights of a sparkling Eiffel Tower, it’s hard not to surrender to your most romantic impulses. And everyone at Saint Laurent’s show this season at the Fontaine du Trocadéro—with direct sight lines to the ultimate Paris monument—did just that, turning into unabashed tourists raptly
Dec 27, 2017 I am what you might call a little hair obsessed. You can’t tell by looking at me though—I’ve worn the same style for a decade. But when it comes to thinking about, talking about and marveling at what hair means, I can go on forever. In the pre-social media days, hair obsessed
Everyone knows the best part of the holidays is being able to wear pajamas from morning until night for days on end without being judged by anyone except maybe your mom. I have been living in these for, let’s just say a while now, and I can’t sing their praises highly enough. They are soft
Chocolate cravings are real life, just like pizza, fries, and frickles (um, maybe that last one is just me). If you’re the type who can have one nibble of the sweet stuff, then finger snaps for you, but most of us want an ooey-gooey brownie — or four. Luckily, healthy chocolate or vegan, Paleo, or
Hello, E. Jean! I am a newspaperwoman on the West Coast—a young and very low-paid reporter. My boss is bipolar and goes back and forth between complimenting my work and screaming at me. My editor-in-chief is aloof and doesn’t interact with the reporters much. I receive minimal health insurance and don’t even get paid overtime.
