So, as I mentioned on Tuesday morning, The Frisky has undergone a little bit of a new look. Not a full facelift, of course, but a bit of Botox that we believe will make our 3.5-year-old site run faster, easier to use, and more fun to read. For the last few months, our fabulous tech team in LA has been working hard on migrating The Frisky from our old blogging platform to WordPress and pimping it out with a whole bunch of custom-designed features. I know that change takes some adjustment — and there are still a few kinks to work out — but like a great new haircut, we’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do. Thanks again for all of your patience, loyalty, and support — it means so much to us.
“Mommmmm, stopppppppp!” is what this tiger cub’s perturbed expression seems to be saying. My expression upon viewing this photo, on the other hand, decidedly says, “Squeeeeeeeeeeeee!” [Buzzfeed]
Remember when, shortly after his split from Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt appeared on the cover of W magazine, playing family man in a photoshoot with rumored lover Angelina Jolie? And Jennifer was all, “Homie is missing a sensitivity chip?” Well, many thought Brad’s sensitively was lacking when he implied to Parade earlier this month that his life with Jen wasn’t an “interesting” one. He quickly went into spin mode, saying his words were taken out of context, but Parade insiders have said that no such twisting of words occurred and that his quote accurately reflects how he feels — that his marriage to Jennifer was a dull one. So when this mini photoshoot featuring Jen and her new boyfriend Justin Theroux appeared on photographer Terry Richardson’s blog yesterday, I couldn’t help but wonder if this wasn’t just a portrait of two kids in love — but also a bit of an “eff you” to Brad and his mouthing off. Jen looks pretty damn happy while Justin … well, he hardly looks bored. I can’t help it — I like these two together! [Terry’s Diary]
We’re baccccck! We took a few days off “What Are We Wearing” to focus on relaunching The Frisky on our new blogging platform, but now we are back in biz and lookin’ fine. Or, at least I think we look fine. Anyway, click on to see what we’re wearing today! And tell us: what have you got on?
George Clooney and Ryan Gosling put on their fanciest suits and cutest grins for last night’s premiere of “Ides of March,” but I believe there were less friendly feelings afoot. Above, The Gosling pranks the notorious jokester by doodling a mustache on his side of their movie poster. Keep clicking to see how I imagine this went over with Clooney — and whether they worked it out in the end.
One of my favorite things about traveling to a foreign country is discovering the local cuisine. Yes, of course I mean going to fun restaurants — from fancy, upscale places to out of the way dives — but I also like to hit up the nearest convenience store and ogle their selection of Doritos. (Truth be told, I was almost as excited about the array of Doritos being sold at the snack shop outside the Mayan ruins in Tulum as I was about the actual scenery inside.) Did you know that Doritos have been around since 1964 and there have been over 100 varieties sold all over the world? I found all this out last night, as I read about the news that the founder of Doritos, Arch West, had died and was going to be buried with his iconic chips. One story that came across my newsfeed: 102 Doritos Flavors From Around The World. Despite my travels, there were so many I had no idea about, including a few that whet my appetite – Atomic Chile Limon? Yes please! — but way more that made my stomach heave. Here are the 16 flavors of Doritos that excited and repulsed me at the same time. [Now That’s Nifty]
