About this title

Synopsis:

Women the world over have been nursing a powerful addiction to DailyCandy.com. A daily email newsletter covering absolutely everything (from lacy bras that actually fit to restaurant openings to children's museums), it's the ultimate insider's guide to what's new and undiscovered. It's like having a great conversation with a girlfriend a girlfriend who tells you where to get your eyebrows threaded, knows when the best sample sales are, and can make you laugh really hard. Beloved as much for its witty, edgy writing as it is for its far-reaching information, DailyCandy has also grown into the go-to site for the latest in hip expressions, defining and inventing words and terms that just are becoming popular or should be. Smart, funny, and sassy, The DailyCandy Lexicon is a compilation of these definitions, invaluable whether you're a "girleen" (a young sassy woman) or a "SoDeeWah" (socialite/designer/whatever). Accompanying the listing is a behind-the-keyboard narrative of how the DailyCandy staff came up with the entries. Maybe you're tired of talking the way you've talked for years (please stop calling things "dope"), or maybe you're embarrassed that you didn't know what your cubicle-mate meant by "desk burn" (it's an injury sustained during in-office sex).

Product Description

The experts on all things cool and of-the-moment offer a glossary of the cleverest words you’ve never heard.

Women the world over have been nursing a powerful addiction—to DailyCandy.com. A daily email newsletter covering absolutely everything (from lacy bras that actually fit to restaurant openings to children’s museums), it’s the ultimate insider’s guide to what’s new and undiscovered. It’s like having a great conversation with a girlfriend—a girlfriend who tells you where to get your eyebrows threaded (and anything else that might need it), who knows when the best sample sales are, and who can make you laugh. Really hard.  Beloved as much for its witty, edgy writing as it is for its far-reaching information, DailyCandy has also grown into the go-to site for how to talk about it all, every day offering up a round-up of the latest in hip expressions. Always the trendsetter, DailyCandy has defined and invented words and terms that just are becoming popular—or should be. Smart, funny, and sassy, The DailyCandy Lexicon is a compilation of these definitions, invaluable whether you’re a “girleen” (a young sassy woman) or a “SoDeeWah” (socialite/ designer/whatever). Accompanying the listing is a behind-the-keyboard narrative of how the DailyCandy staff came up with the entries.

Maybe you’re tired of talking the way you’ve talked for years (please stop calling things “dope”), or maybe you’re embarrassed that you didn’t know what your cubicle-mate meant by “desk burn” (it’s an injury sustained during in-office sex). Either way, you need a dose of The DailyCandy Lexicon:

·    Tart fuel: n. Girlie drinks. e.g., cosmos, kirs, or anything that tastes like Kool-Aid.

·    Teenile: adj. Used to describe someone who is way too old for what she is wearing. (“That 45-year-old woman is wearing low-cut jeans. Is she crazy or just teenile?”)

·    Kama-suture: n. Aid for injuries sustained during aerobic bedroom exercises (particularly by non-aerobic  types).

·    Crapas: n. One of the many bad versions of the “small plates” craze.

·   Apathy hour: n. What happy hour usually feels like.
