Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Amelia McDonell-Parry
This morning, a mini-controversy broke out between some members of The Frisky staff. It started when I came across a photo of Kate Winslet at last night’s “Mildred Pierce” premiere and immediately began planning a slideshow about her 10 best looks, since I adored her dress (middle). Within moments, Jessica was IMing me about that very same dress — only her comment was, “What the f**k is Kate Winslet wearing?” I mentioned what I was working on to Julie, our Style Editor, who immediately said, “The dress with the polka dots? Love it.” So, by a vote of 2-to-1, The Frisky loves Kate Winslet’s polka dot look, though I didn’t really give Jessica a chance to dig up votes on her side.

With that in mind, here are 12 drool-worthy candles that smell (or purport to smell) so goddamn amazing you’ll want to eat them. Though I really recommend you don’t, FYI.
“If you want someone to do more cleaning all you have to do is make sure there is a vague smell of citrus in the air. This smell will subconsciously inﬂuence your partner’s thoughts and their actions, making them think more readily of cleaning products — and using them.”
According to a new book called Get the Edge, written by psychologist Geoff Beattie, you can use little mind tricks to improve all areas of your life. For example, he says you can get someone to clean the house simply by bombarding them with the scent of citrus. I’m going to leave orange peels around my apartment and then invite a dude over and see what happens. If it works, I’ll never have to clean again! Please, let it work. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
