What guys think about vajazzling

Let’s talk about vajazzling, shall we? For those of you not in the know, vajazzling is badazzling your vagina. And if you’re a woman who feels she needs a little more glitz and glam down south, I say, more power to you. It’s your va-jay-jay and your semi-precious stone collection. Do what you want with them. Recently though, I got asked what men think of vajazzling, and for one of the few times in my life, I was totally speechless. I have no idea what the male perspective on vajazzling is. So I sat down with one of my favorite funny men, comedian and dating coach Ethan Fixell, to get a real man’s take. Here’s what I learned. Read more

Beauty and style items you can feel good about buying

Whether shopping for yourself or someone else, these are products you’ll feel good about buying — and you'll look great too.

When can you start wearing your sweatpants in front of him?

You see me on Millionaire Matchmaker telling women to always wear sexy dresses for first dates. And I’ll always stand by that advice. Men love sexy. It’s a fact.

So the big question is, when can you start wearing your sweatpants in front of your guy? Well, my answer, like many of my answers here on PattiKnows, is — it depends. How cute are your sweatpants?

How young is too young for plastic surgery to boost your confidence?

If all it takes is a little nip here or filler there to make you feel like the million bucks you are, then why not go ahead and do it, right? Not so fast. I’m not giving all plastic surgery an all-access pass because there certainly are caveats. One of them being age. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 219,000 cosmetic plastic surgery procedures were performed on people ages 13 to 19 in 2010.

But I do live in Los Angeles, so I’m somewhat of an unofficial expert in the field of elective surgery and cosmetic procedures. Here are my thoughts. Read more
