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
When our periods arrive, they sometimes bring along a host of seriously unpleasant side effects, such as nausea, headaches, backaches, and those dreaded menstrual cramps.

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
Five months ago, my kids and I were blissfully savoring the last days of Summer. We went to the beach, had impromptu playdates with friends, and visited family. Some days we did nothing at all except talk, laugh, and play together. Other days we took trips to amusement parks and children’s museums and even took

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

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
Ditching meat was pretty easy for me. Although I ate animals growing up, I avoided meat as much as my parents would allow. Even as a child, I had difficulty reconciling our consumption of some animals with our love of others — primarily because I’d shared my life with a wide variety of companion animals:
Despite her reported pregnancy breaking back in September, Kylie Jenner has managed avoid any photos of her baby bump surfacing in paparazzi shots, on Instagram, or even at Kris Jenner’s annual Christmas Eve bash earlier this week.

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
Have you ever dragged yourself to the gym after a particularly stressful day and you just can’t bring yourself to finish that treadmill session? It can feel impossible to get a good workout in when you’re not feeling 100 percent. That’s because stress has a serious effect on the body, and it can mess with
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.
