Instagram

I’ve decided to stop using Instagram. It only just occurred to me that maybe I don’t want people to see where I am and who I’m with at that exact moment. There are lots of other things you can use Instagram for, of course, and I can always take those photos and ‘gram ‘em later, but that loses the whole “Insta” part of it.

Why am I giving it up? I’ve gone through my feed and I see some friends and acquaintances who are not only taking a photo of where they are but have also “checked in,” and described their exact place within that location (like, “Partying at [cool club here] in the back room, like rockstars!”) One day I thought, “Wow, this has the potential to be really dangerous.” Then I thought about how when I’ve gone on vacation I’ve posted my vacation pics on Instagram, too. It’s almost like I’m saying, “I’m not home right now, I am clearly across the country at the moment, feel free to rob my apartment and steal my car.” Keep reading »

Instagram is taking over weddings and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I was gleefully pinning my way through Pinterest, looking for things to add to my “WEDDING INSANITY BOARD” when I found the above posted photo.

My immediate reaction was, “THIS IS WHAT TECHNOLOGY HAS DONE TO US.”

Almie: Hipstar vs. Pornstar
How to totally transform your look. Read More »
This is not directed at any one person. This is something I feel I have to say on behalf of myself and possibly many other female bloggers out there.

It makes my freaking day when people email me or comment or come up to me in public and tell me that they like my blog or my videos or my writing for The Frisky. To know that there is someone else out there, across the vast and uncertain hollow space of Internet, to know that someone is reading, someone is taking the time out of their day to process words that I wrote or watch a video I made, means a lot to me.

As women bloggers though, we’re faced with certain issues that men aren’t. Keep reading »

There have been some pretty “quirky” wedding trends recently. There’s the trend of making wedding photos look purposefully washed out, as though they were taken with a 1970′s toy camera. There’s the trend of using mason jars as wine glasses, candle holders or table centerpieces– really, anything that you can put something in will be put in a mason jar. The was even a “500 Days Of Summer“-themed wedding.

Some wedding fashion trends we’ve seen on our beloved Pinterest are Converse sneakers for the groom and groomsmen (sometimes brides and bridesmaids), less ornate wedding gowns (moving more towards wedding dresses), and flowered hair accessories.

Or, for only $325, you can put antlers on your head. Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: New Band My Dick Replaces Popular Song Lyrics With “My Dick”

Move over, Beatles, because I think I found my new favorite band. Their name is My Dick. Their album? My Dick’s Double Full-Length Release: 23 spot-on covers of some of the greatest hits of the ‘70s–‘90s, with one twist: key words in the lyrics are replaced with “dick.” I spoke to the two artists behind this opus.

Women Need Mentors

Most women just don't get the mentoring they need. Read More »
I love when great opportunities just boink me in the head. One day my friend Liz asked me if I was looking for work. She was assisting a lovely writer but got a great job opportunity elsewhere that she couldn’t refuse. Would I like to take her place? That writer was Amy Ephron. I called her, we spoke, and she invited me over to her house, for what I thought was an interview, but was apparently my first day on the job. Since that day two years ago, I’ve found not just a great boss, but a true mentor, someone who supports me and my writing.

I never understood the need for a mentor until I accidentally found one. I’m psyched to say that writer Amy Ephron is my mentor. I asked her about writing, feminism, and vices.
