Oh, Just Some Sloth Rings For Your Jewelry Box

The Frisky is a house divided on sloths. Some of us think sloths are gross, not cute. Some of us think there is nothing cuter than a sloth in the bath or wearing a baby onesie. But I think we can all agree nothing says “stylish” like made-to-order clay sloth rings from Etsy. Collect them…

I’m Ready For “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey” And You Should Be Too

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: The Punky Pony

Blogger Bobby Glam created this awesome hairstyle she calls the “punky pony,” and I love it for two reasons: 1) it’s totally badass, and 2) it gets all the hair off your face and neck, which is a godsend in the summer months. Because as much as I love my sideswept bangs, when it get…

Be My Friend: “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Edition

The best thing about “The Real Housewives” franchise is that at the end of the day, they’re regular people.

Poll: How Often Should You Wash Your Sex Toys?

A survey done in the UK found that only 35 percent of people wash their sex toys after every use. More than half of the participants said they washed their toys “regularly” and 12 percent, clearly not germophobes, admitted to never cleaning them. OK. That’s just gross. The company that ran this survey found the result…

Girl Talk: Finding My Birth Parents

I was 12 when I found out. My stepsister hurled it at me during a fight: “At least I’m not adopted,” she retorted after I called her a four-eyed idiot. My real mother died when I was six, and the fact that I now had a stepmother didn’t mean I was adopted.

The Soapbox: Where Are The Pubes On “Game Of Thrones”?

If you watch HBO’s tit-laden nigh-incoherent castle-intrigue juggernaut “Game of Thrones “(or as I like to call it, “The Peter Dinklage Show”) you’ll remember that a couple weeks ago there was an episode with a scene involving two prostitutes.

Well Played: Olivia Palermo Looks Awesome In Orange

Olivia Palermo totally called the paps on herself yesterday — there’s a whole series of shots of her just standing around on those super uncomfortable cobblestones in NYC’s Meatpacking District.
