Moroccan Oil is Liquid Gold!

Moroccan Oil is Liquid Gold!

One of the perks of attending events in Hollywood is that often you get a lot of free stuff, stuff that you don’t care about or will never use. Every now and again, I get a product or gift that I fall in love with. This year, it was Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner. I was a little apprehensive about […]

Blaming the Victim is Bad for Men and Women

Blaming the Victim is Bad for Men and Women

We were horrified at L&P, as were most Americans, by the recent reports about the alleged gang rape of an 11-year-old girl in Cleveland, Texas. Eighteen black men (several underage)   are accused of raping an 11-year-old Latina in an abandoned trailer in this small, Texas town. The incident happened in November, but it’s taken a while for the story to […]

Polygamy and The Women Who Love It.

Polygamy and The Women Who Love It.

I’m addicted to this show on TLC called “Sister Wives.” For those of you who haven’t heard, it’s about a polygamist family, the Browns, who live in Utah. I first heard about this new show on TLC while watching Oprah. The husband and his 4 wives were featured on the show. I was so intrigued because this ‘family’ was not […]

Paris Fashion Week- What’s Really RTW

Paris Fashion Week- What’s Really RTW

I know spring has barely arrived- in fact, to be completely honest, I haven’t moved into the strong spring colors that graced the runways last fall. I’m still rocking the black with an occasional dip of blue and possibly gray.   So the chance to wear my hot multicolored summer sundresses really does seem to far into the future to imagine. […]

Covering Up.

Covering Up.

After spending 7 weeks with my in-laws in a small village in Punjab, I have decided to re-evaluate how I feel about covering up when nursing my baby. Ever since my son was born (Aug 2007), I have always been private about nursing my kids. If I’m at home with just my mom and husband, I don’t worry about covering […]

Anything You Want to Be?

Anything You Want to Be?

“Nobody objects to a woman being a good writer or sculptor or geneticist if at the same time she manages to be a good wife, a good mother, good-looking, good-tempered, well-dressed, well-groomed, and unaggressive.” – Marya Mannes Last weekend I attended an event at the MOMA that consisted of a series of short feminist films.   While all the films were […]

Please Put a Shirt On–A Woman’s (Mis)Adventures in Online Dating

Please Put a Shirt On–A Woman’s (Mis)Adventures in Online Dating

A year after my divorce was final, and two years after my now-ex had left me, I decided it was time to “get back out there”. Generally speaking I am an independent person; I have no trouble going out to dinner or to a movie by myself. However, I also know that having someone to kiss and laugh with would […]

Girl Power

Girl Power

I have, at various times, felt discouraged, enraged, inquisitive, and baffled by the attitude of many Indian cultures towards girls. Being the second girl in a first generation Punjabi family gave me some firsthand experience in this matter. I used to resent the fact that I was without baby pictures for the first months of my infancy, because my family […]
