XOJane's former beauty and health blogger Cat Marnell has resurfaced over at Vice magazine, where she has just published the first of her new weekly columns about...well, that's actually slightly unclear, but it will definitely not be about health. The list of narcotics she describes consuming in her first essay includes Ambien, Xanax, PCP and cocaine (melatonin, cigarettes, and cinnamon gum are in there, too). Beauty does get a nod, however—a $40 French beauté self tanner and YSL's Rouge Volupte lipstick #17 are referenced—as does fashion (there's a complete list of everything she's wearing down to the Betsey Johnson thong). Head over to Vice for more nouns and more Marnell. [Vice]
