Monday Quickies!

Lily Allen’s grandmother passed away just a few hours before her performance at Glastonbury. Oh no, this wasn’t Grandma as “Nan, You’re A Window Shopper” is it? The Grandma who likes her tea milky, who has a kitchen where everything’s got a label, and has done her Christmas shopping and we’re only in April? [Daily

Wall-E Tells Eve He Loves Her Without Using Those Three Words

I saw Wall-E this weekend, and one of the more remarkable aspects of the movie is that throughout whole chunks of it, only two works are spoken: “Wall-E” and “Eve”, the names of the two main robots. Even though they are said perhaps a hundred times throughout the 97-minute movie, characters intonate the two name…

Anne Hathaway Is Real Life Agent 99

Anne Hathaway, so polite, so proper. She’s never so much as flashed a nipple or blinged a crunk cup. The girl is squeaky clean. But beneath her well-mannered exterior beats the heart of a secret spy. In a case of life imitating art, but better, Agent 99 is sleuthing her own life story and snitching…

The Frisky’s Guide To Sealing The Deal Without Shrinking Like A Violet

There comes a time (hopefully many) in every woman’s life when you’re finally one-on-one with a guy you’re hot for and are ready for him to resuscitate your love life with some serious mouth-to-mouth. But how do you let him know you want him, you want him so bad, it’s driving you mad? While some…

How To Get Perfume To Stay

Even though I have tried to wear perfume (Coco Chanel once said, “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.”), scents seem to fall off my skin, and I have basically given up on smelling nice. Perfume blog The Fragrance Fanatic just posted some tips for making your perfume or eau de toilette stay…

Stem Cells: Regrow Your Own Perfect Body

Want to be wrinkle-free with a rack like casaba melons? You could be pretty forever, thanks to the fountain of youth that are stems cells. Australia just lifted its ban on cloning embryos in the hopes that this research will have many cosmetic, and not just medical, benefits. In the U.S., the National Cancer Institute…

Stylehiving: Sienna Miller’s A Star In Stripes

If closets could speak, I think they would say a big thank you to Sienna Miller for rescuing them from a life of terminal boring-ness and providing them with a wealth of fabulous items. Thanks to her eclectic, avant-garde, anything-goes style, Sienna has cultivated a signature status as one of the world’s most celebrated style…

Sex In The Bible

You might think the Bible wouldn’t have much sex in it, it being a religious book and all, but Time magazine points out that there are quite a few passages that deal with people doing it. Our favorite from their selection: “While the king was on his couch, my nard gave forth its fragrance.” [Time]…

Slideshow: Musical Mayem At The Glastonbury Festival

Ahh, Glastonbury, the ultimate U.K. musical festival where regular folk hobnob with Kate Moss and risk getting punched in the face by Amy Winehouse. How we wish we could have gone and hung out this past weekend, checking out performances by everyone from Duffy to Jay-Z. Unforch, we will have to settle for the next…

Hot Or Not? Guys With Long Hair

Long hair is a major trend for young men these days, with Kate Hudson’s son, Ryder, as its poster child. Personally, I think little boys with long hair look like girls, but once they’ve gone through puberty, that’s another story (Smith Jerrod on SATC before he shaved his head, anyone?). Amelia and I were discussing…

Quote Of The Day: Heidi Montag Is Just Like Jesus Christ

“I have been the most religious person since I was 2 years old. I always felt this crazy connection to God…. God knows the truth in all of [the Lauren Conrad sex tape rumors], and at the end of the day, that is the only thing that matters. Jesus was persecuted, and I’m going to…

Nicole Kidman’s Birthing Playlist

Nicole Kidman is getting ready to give birth, and she’s making preparations besides practicing her breathing. A source said Nicole has been putting together a music mix to listen to during her labor, and it includes songs by her husband, Keith Urban, and Irish flautist Sir James Galway. “Whenever you go to her house, she…

Crave: Kimchi & Blue Plaid Frock

I love the idea of adapting out-of-season things for the current season. This plaid screams winter, but is actually the perfect sun dress with a lightweight cotton fabric. And it gets better — the dress has hidden side pockets, just in case you need a place to store last year’s stocking stuffers. [$48, Kimchi…

The Daily Hotness: Daniel Craig, Plus The Quantum Of Solace Trailer

The trailer for Quantum of Solace, the new James Bond film, has finally arrived. Daniel Craig is back as Bond, and is on a revenge mission. He makes revenge extremely sexy and I, for one, am seriously hot for the morose, brooding Bond, as opposed to the debonaire, sleek, party boy that Pierce Brosnan portrayed.

Dealbreaker: The Pretty Boy

For most people, Halloween is either an excuse to look like a slut or it’s an opportunity to look as stupid as possible. Either way, it’s all about appearances, and, ultimately about getting attention from them.

On Halloween last year, I had parked myself firmly in Camp Slut, arriving to my costume party…

Poll: Is Technology A Part Of Your Sex Life?

A study conducted by author Joan Sauers for her new book, Sex Lives of Australian Women, found that 20 percent of Australian women have admitted to having a sexual encounter in an internet chatroom. “As a society, we increasingly rely on technology to get the job done, whatever the job is,” she writes in the…
