Are you a woman who'd rather stay quiet and go without, rather than ask a man for what you want? Sadly, you're not alone. Society raises women to think of other people first, so it's no wonder we feel that our needs are not important. If you don't have the confidence to ask for what you want, doing so can seem as frightening or as painful as a root canal. But if you don't ask, how will you ever get what you need? It's like hearing a constant "no." Any relationship, and especially marriage, requires the art of compromise. You have to express your needs if you're going to create a life with someone. It's the only way to take a relationship from "just dating" to "happily ever after." Don't despair—you just have to learn what works. Once you do, you'll actually enjoy expressing your wants and needs.
After the holidays wrap up, we often resent the fact that cold and snow and the ravages of the season are pretty much happening for no reason. What good is a cold winter's night when there's no cozy, Christmas tree-lit couch to cuddle up on? Why do our lips have to be frozen when there's no one under the mistletoe (and frankly, no mistletoe at all) to warm them up? Since we feel your pain, and also have to endure a few more months of this pointless weather, we whipped up eight ways to feel better about it all. Click through for delicious hot cocktails that might just make your trek through the cold worth it.

With a last name like Jagger, it's probably all too easy to get away with plenty of wild child antics. But while musician and aspiring actor, Jimmy Jagger, has grown up in the spotlight thanks to his very famous pedigree (mom and dad are Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger), this member of rock star royalty seems to be using his name for good. The 29-year-old avid scuba diver (yep!) has taken up a role in The Ocean Campaign, calling for the conservation of marine life and "the blue frontier." With the epic One Night, One Ocean gala hitting NYC on Tuesday, January 20th, we caught up with Jimmy to talk his love of the ocean, his involvement with the campaign, and what he'll be doing in NYC after the big event!

After the vast success of Wurtzel's first book, New York Times Best Seller, Prozac Nation, she went on to publish a handful of other hits. Creatocracy is Wurtzel's first book in over ten years.
