Think of us as your online girlfriend. Always there, always wanting to hear from you, ready with advice, suggestions, and random ideas for things to do. And of course, constantly talking about our obsession with shoes. But we are more than that–we wanted a cool place to go that looks through a woman’s eyes. A place that deals with women’s issues, and understands what women want to know about bars, restaurants, life and beauty. We’d like to say that it all started with a strong discussion of women’s empowerment, but really, it all began with a conversation about niche porn for women (and how we ladies like a good story…or any story….hello porn writers!) and ended up with the idea for CityGirls: the Urban Girls’ Survival Guide (are you impressed yet? Fair enough, we weren’t entirely either). So that’s the long and short of it—but if you have any story ideas for niche porn (sex trek anyone?) we are always entertained to hear from you. And in the meantime, stay smart, sexy and stylish. It’s a citygirlsworld after all!
Who are we?
Christie and Jess, Co-Editors
Christie, often found in DC, is the brainchild behind the City Girls concept (and the niche porn). After several months of nurturing the idea and eating cheese fries, she convinced best friend and Philadelphia city girl Jess to join her at the helm and provide sanity (by now, she may question that last bit). Together, they’ve finally been able to put use to years of conversation about hair, make-up, men, politics, the importance of chocolate in daily life, their love/hate relationship with heels (and certain brands of eyeliner), and ultimately weave it all together in one smart, sexy, and stylish city life… or so they hope. Phew!
We have a delightful and dashing revolving door of guest bloggers who pop in with sore feet and wild tales and a rotation of authors writing for us as SingleGirl and MarriedGirl.
