10 Retro Ads Targeted At Women

Last night, I fell into a little bit of Flickr k-hole as I discovered and combed through a treasure trove of vintage ads targeted at women. Various household cleansers! Brillo pads! Life-changing appliance materials! A perfume called “Macrame”! And a crocheted toilet paper cover that looks like a poodle? Oh yes. Some of these are positively frame-worthy. And just wait until you see my slideshow of vintage homemaker magazines… Keep reading »

Meet The New Bond Girls, Plus Our Other Favorite 007 Temptresses!

James Bond fans, meet your two new Bond girls. Today in London, the cast and crew of “Skyfall,” the name of the 23rd James Bond film, gathered for a press conference and revealed for the first time which women would be distracting the notorious ladies man 007. According to TooFab:

French actress Berenice Marlohe, who stunned in a sexy red dress, will play the glamorous Severine … though, at the moment, not much more is known about her character. Naomie Harris will also star in the film as a field agent named Eve — and Harris revealed she’s been doing yoga, stunt driving and firing machine guns to prepare for the role. We like her already.

Here at The Frisky, we’re unabashed fans of the boob tube, but books are our first love. So, when we heard one of our favorite networks — HBO — was turning the much-hyped book Swamplandia! into a mini-series, we bumped it up to the top of our must-read list. (First of all, any book that has an exclamation point in the title piques our interest.) Karen Russell’s book takes place in the Florida Everglades and is about a teenaged girl desperately trying to keep her family’s gator-wrestling theme park in business after her mom passes. Sounds like a page-turner to us! If you’ve read it, share what you thought in the comments! [$10.17, Amazon]
