Eres makes the most beautiful and flattering bikini in the world. It's a French institution, like the YSL Muse bag or K Jacques sandals. But even if Eres is renown for coaxing impressive cleavage and bums from even the most, ahem, intractable figures, here in France, we are, like everyone else, in the midst of a bleak economic crisis. Unemployment hovers around 10 percent, and there are rumors of a double-dip recession. Sound familiar?
Earn, baby, earn!
So how does a chic French woman weather the storm? She waits in line, carefully sorting through boxes of silky maillots and elaborate bottoms, until she finds the one perfect bikini, unlike me, the American next to her, waiting to pay for three, none of which I'm entirely happy with.
That's the secret of the credit crunch in France: What you don't have in the bank, you sim...Read More »
- Popdust | Work + Money | Thu, Nov 15, 2012 10:34 AM EST | CommentsToo soon? Maybe not as soon as you think. Not only has it been nearly three years since the end of the '00s, but we've entered practically a whole new era in popular music-one in which The Neptunes and Timbaland have been replaced by Dr. Luke and David Guetta as the sound of the moment, where Lil Wayne is now maybe just the third-most popular rapper on "Bedrock," and in which LMFAO have succeeded the Black Eyed Peas as the #1 pop gonzo party act (and now both groups are on hiatus).
Meanwhile, those acts who scored just one hit and never quite made it to the next decade feel a million miles away now. Remember when you couldn't go an hour without hearing Daniel Powter's "Bad Day" on the radio or in some TV show? Or when Tay Zonday's "Chocolate Rain" was the funniest thing you ever saw on the internet? Or when Paris Hilton attempted a music career…and her one hit actually wasn't that bad? If you do, we're betting those memories are already fairly gauzy and nostalgic, and might brin...Read More »

How to save money on your Thanksgiving celebration
Save money on your feast this Thanskgiving!
Greetings, fellow frugal fans! Now that my cupboards are stuffed with Halloween candy (purchased at a delicious 75 percent off), it's time to begin preparations for one of my favorite holidays - Thanksgiving.
I've been hearing lots of talk from people who are used to spending $250 or more for a table of eight at Thanksgiving. With food costs on the perpetual rise, the cost of entertaining during the holidays can get expensive. The good news is that Turkey Day doesn't have to be a budget buster, especially when you follow these three simple tricks on how to host a fabulous feast for less.
1. Turkey: Turkey prices can go upward of $1.69 a pound or more, depending on the brand name and grocery retailer. Do yourself a favor and procrastinate with purpose! Purchase your turkey from a big retailer les...Read More »

Men still think of breadwinning as an obligation. Men feel they should contribute as much as or more than women do, and blame themselves when they can't. This, for men, is probably the greatest reason they struggle with women's earnings. Men have changed their minds about what's okay for women, but not about what's okay for men. If there is a double standard, it's that men are easier on women, in terms of expectations
for earnings, than they are on themselves.
Sociologists Ilana Demantas and Kristen Myers illuminated this mind-set when they interviewed a group of men who had been laid off during the Great Recession. Many were being supported by wives or girlfriends. These men were full of appreciation for the women they lived with. They und...Read More »
