**Spoiler warning ... proceed with caution.**
While on their exotic trip to Abu Dhabi, Carrie ended up running into her ex-fiance Aidan. Ignoring Charlotte's "you're playing with fire" warning, she met him for drinks and dinner, which resulted in accidentally sharing a kiss at the end of the night even though they were both married. Oops.

Afterward, she did what Carrie always does and analyzed it for hours with the girls. It was a unanimous vote -- all three said that she should not tell Big. After all, it was just a kiss. It wasn't worth the pain that telling him would cause.
Besides the fact that the coincidence of running into an ex halfway around the world is about as likely as getting hit by lightning (twice), let's focus on whether or not you should tell. Upon watching that scene, I blurted

Unique Vintage; $30Memorial Day cookouts may be a time to look casual, but you don't have to forgo style just because you're (wo)manning the grill.
In fact, you can go for the ultimate in style and steal Charlotte's Sex and the City 2 look with this Audrey Cupcakes hostess apron made by Jessie Steele sold at Unique Vintage. The little cherry cupcakes with pink piping brighten up a BBQ, and the bow detail is what makes it oh, so Charlotte.
Of course, you'll enjoy whipping up a batch of sweets indoors once the grill is scraped and put away as well.
Loving the apron as accessory over party dress.

Bonus! You'll get 20 percent off the cupcakes apron for the hostess with the most-est when you enter "hostess."

I was recently lucky enough to chat with Sex and the City 2 set decorator Lydia Marks. I've been swooning over the interiors for weeks, and I'm so anxious to head to theater this weekend to see more of the set. If you haven't already, make sure you check out all of my photos and coverage of the Sex and the City 2 set design. As you can imagine, I was very curious about Lydia's inspiration, concept, and resources for the set décor. Keep reading to get the lowdown!
Judging by the trailer, Carrie and Big's apartment décor is to die for! Can you share with us the inspirations behind the look? How did you arrive on a design concept?We're inspired by making one unified space for these two separate characters to live in comfortably. And we're inspired by old movies and Alfred Hitchcock films in terms of the type of architecture they were going to live in. Because we built the set on a soundstage, we could make it any type of architecture we wanted. We spent a lot of time Read More »from Exclusive! Interview with "Sex and the City 2" Set Decorator
Everyone at Sugar HQ is so excited, because tonight is the big premiere of Sex and the City 2. Since Yum shared some of the biggest food trends from the series, and Bella gave us a photo recap of Carrie's hair evolution, it seems only fitting that we share our favorite fitness moments from Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte. And while the girls might be known more for shopping, romance, and cosmos, these scenes provided a great backdrop for some classic one-liners.

Last night we attended a special screening of "Sex and the City 2," and despite a few cringe-worthy moments, there was so much to love. If you've been a fan of the series all along, you'll enjoy catching up with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda, and the people they hold dear. The girls have come a long way, and just as Carrie once explained, having a great relationship, a great apartment, and a great career all at once can be an extremely difficult feat. We experience some of their more painful, trying moments along with lots of lavish, carefree partying in this new film. Visually the "SATC" sequel cannot be topped, and as expected, the wardrobe never fails to disappoint.
The ladies have noticeably aged since the last movie, and certainly since the series, but gratefully, they seem somewhat enlightened about what this means for them as wives, mothers, and above all, as women. All those moments you were worried about from watching the trailer? They are in on the joke. This is whyRead More »from 5 things you'll love about the "Sex and the City" movie sequel

After last night's midnight showing of Sex and The City 2, it is clear that you probably won't go see SATC for the sex advice. Go for the reunion with Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. Go for the fashion and extravagance. Just seeing Liza Minnelli perform "Single Ladies" is well worth the price of a ticket.Read More »from 7 Sex Tips from Sex And The City 2 : Make It Sparkle!
But in between the shots of high heels and couture, the Sex and the City ladies offer us an abundance of sex and relationship advice, targeted squarely at those in long term relationships and struggling to keep the "sparkle" of excitement alive.
As sex educators, here are the top 7 lessons we noticed in the film:
1. Take Time Alone How much time do you take to nourish your own needs and desires? Whether you are a busy mom, overworked at your job, or both, taking time to be alone and replenish yourself is essential to a happy relationship and fabulous sex life. No matter how many demands there are on your time, taking a few moments each day to nourish your own needs will go

What are the chances Carrie could find a man who really is named Mr. Big?
Just about one in a million-1 in 992,400.
But remember those t-shirts, "I'm a Carrie"? The odds a woman will advertise herself as a "Samantha" are 1 in 14.29, compared to 1 in 1.27 (37%) for Carrie. The demure Charlotte is a close second with 1 in 2.94 women choosing to identify with her. Miranda? 1 in 4.55 women say they are most like her.
But what if you really are a Samantha? Those odds have been dramatically increasing, from 1 in 796.8 in 1970, right around the time the fictional Ms. Jones would have been born, to 1 in 185.7 for someone born in 2008, the year the Sex and the City movie was released.Read More »from The Sex and the City name game: Are you really a Carrie?
Think about it: You really spend only a few minutes a day naked. And as a result, being au naturel doesn't feel, well, all that natural. This might explain why so few women claim to be proud of their bare bodies. In a survey I conducted for Women's Health, a measly 8 percent of 3,500 women claimed to be proud of their bodies. But I also discovered through talking with body-image experts that feeling more confident in the buff can be as easy as spending a little more time in that state (don't worry-no streaking necessary). Start with these four sensual suggestions.
1. Take a Bath
If you're like most people, you don't spend much more than 10 minutes in the shower. Bathing in the tub will help you to slow down your ablutions and give you the perfect opportunity to become better acquainted with your body all over again.
2. Snooze in the Nude

The movie everyone's been waiting for finally debuted last night at none other than NYC's Radio City Music Hall. Cosmo Radio Hosts Taylor and Victoria donned their own stilettos to get the scoop on your favorite celebrities at the premiere. Here are some of their favorite moments.
The Fab Four
The gals have been on the red carpet circuit long enough that it's no surprise they looked stunning in their floor-length gowns. Although SJP and Kristin Davis's dresses look like they could be from the same designer, that's not the case. SJP insists that, after knowing each other all these years, they just have similar tastes!

Yum! Jason's chiseled cheekbones, sexy smile, and perfectly fitted suit got us a bit distracted. Cosmo Radio Host Taylor bravely asked him to take his shirt off, but sadly he declined: "Sorry, kid, you're out of luck!"
That's okay, Smith. We'll just check out these shirtless hotties.

Here's some sound advice from our Gay BFF on how to keep things super spicy in your relationship - even if you've been together for a long time.
- Brian Clark, BettyConfidential.com
Congratulations! You did the impossible. You met a guy who's into you and he fits all of your major criteria: his hands feel great on your shoulders, you love the smell of his hair even when he hasn't washed it, and you can borrow his clothes because you both wear the same size jeans. Wait, those are my criteria.
Anyway, the point is, you've had the big conversation and have both agreed you are blissfully monogamous. Hooray!
But, what do you do to make sure settling down doesn't mean settling into an emotional stupor?
Here's my advice…
