Fake and Bake

Lei Chic You’ve foiled the last four surprise birthday party attempts your man has tried. You can tell an authentic Prada from an International Marketplace Prado bag from 100 feet. And the guy who tried to pass off cubic zirconia earrings as the real deal? He was faux over in a heartbeat.

You can’t be fooled, especially not by “diet” foods that are low-cal, but also low on flavor and the fill-up factor. The last time you tried to trick your body into thinking a green salad and handful of nuts was a meal, you got in deep dish with a monster order... Read more »

Top Gear

Lei ChicOperator: 911, what is your emergency?

You: Help! I’ve just had a beauty blow out on the freeway and I don’t know what to do!

The Odd Squad

Lei ChicYou wake up in the morning, say hello to your 1.8 room mates/family members and drive the 26.1 minutes to work (no traffic today). There you plug away for 7.5 hours to bring in part of your household’s $64,661 income, according to the U.S. Census, until it’s time to return to your median average $315,000 condo.
