Never Say “Pore Me!” Again

Huge pores. A lot of us have got ‘em, but they’re not always something we want share with the world.

The Frisky Staff’s Favorite Books Of 2011

It might seem like all we read around here is Tumblrs about Ryan Gosling. That’s only the partial truth: most of us are pretty huge bookworms.

You’re Invited To A Typical New Year’s Eve Party

Not that I saw that terrible looking movie “New Year’s Eve” — I’m waiting for it to be on DVD, obvs — but there was a line from the trailer that I found to be quite on point. “New Year’s is the worst holiday to go out on,” says Ashton Kutcher’s sure-to-be-douche-y character. “People who…

While You Were Out, Your Cats Were Throwing A Banger

I would be so stoked if I could be half as relaxed and mellow as the cat in the party hat in the bowl is. That guy doesn’t even raise a whisker at the party hat intrusion. In fact, all of these cats seem suspiciously laid back about wearing stupid human hats, given the general…

Research has indicated that as much as 90 percent of people lie in their online dating profiles. Women in their 20s and 30s slyly deduct anywhere from five to 20 lbs. from their weight, while men tend to lie about income, education level and, yes, relationship status. Yikes.

Here, we count the way…

The Soapbox: Let’s Take The “Man” Out Of Mani/Pedi

I boldly venture into sexist territory. I move we take the “man” out of mani/pedi. Why? Because sitting next to someone of the opposite sex in my nail salon is different than sitting side-by-side with another woman. It just is.
