It looks like Lindsay Lohan is headed back to the clink. She and her attorney met with Judge Stephanie Sautner today regarding Lindsay’s failure to fulfill her probation requirements, which included 360 hours of service at a women’s center. Lindsay violated her probation after she was booted from her assignment and began serving hours with the Red Cross, which was not in the terms of her sentence. This afternoon Lindsay was put in handcuffs and carted back to the slammer. However, she’s entitled to another hearing to take place on November 2 before her jail sentence is determined.

It’s that time of year again — pumpkin season! If you grew up in the suburbs like I did, you’ll know that those unmistakable gourds are impossible to ignore come October. They line nearly every doorstep, with or without the jack-o-lantern faces for which they’re known. I don’t think I’d mind if I never saw one again … pumpkin overdose, if you will. But I’m definitely not mad about the slew of pumpkin-related beauty products that appear when the leaves start to fall!
Here’s eight pumpkin products that will have you pining for eternal autumn!
Here at The Frisky, we love sluts. When did being in charge of your sexuality become a bad thing? The word first appeared in the English language in the early 1400s as “slutte,” with the meaning being a dirty or slovenly woman. Today, nothing about being a slut has to be off-putting, given the proper accoutrements (condoms, everybody, please!). In fact, having sex for pleasure can be an exercise in healthy living and sound mental health. Promiscuity, and the ability to separate sex and physicality from emotional dependency and attachment, is not something of which to be ashamed.
Let’s take some time to honor proud sluts throughout history!
The sexiest thing about me? My extremely chapped lips. I realize most people have to combat this condition once the temperature drops and brisk winds are in the air, but my lips are unique in that they have no regard for the climate. Through both bitter chills and balmy 100+ degree days, my lips are intent on cracking, peeling, occasionally bleeding, and generally trying to make a run from my face. Granted, I tend to exacerbate it by licking and picking at the issue, not to mention applying unfit products that are bound to dehydrate my pucker (red lipstick, why must you be so drying?!?!). As a result, I’ve tried just about every lip balm on the market that claims to repair the situation and leave your lips feeling silky smooth. But, more often than not, they fail me. I’ve found a few winners along the way but nothing that stands out as my healing holy grail. I have hyper-sensitive skin that blooms rashes if you look at it wrong, and my lips are no different. Some of the most popular and highly recommended formulas have left me red and itchy for days.
That’s why I was more than a little excited when a Bar and Balm Bag from Pleasant River Soap Co. landed on my desk… Keep reading »
Lana Del Rey, whose EP Video Games was released this week, has caused a bit of a stir on the Internet since the single — also called “Video Games” — gained momentum over the summer by way of MP3 blogs. She initially performed under her real name, Lizzy Grant, before adopting a very stylized new look at the recommendation of managers and lawyers. Before her revamp (surgical or otherwise — who’s to say?) her career was hardly on the up and up. It’s only since then that she’s risen to notoriety. But whatever! All controversy aside, Lana Del Rey rules and it definitely doesn’t hurt that she looks like Brigitte Bardot circa Le Mepris. “Video Games” deserves every bit of press it’s received, and my boyfriend kindly requested that I not play it again after listening to it on repeat for several days. It’s that good.
Played to perfection on “Boardwalk Empire” by my favorite hot mess-and-a half Paz de la Huerta, Lucy Danziger is a showgirl in every sense of the word. Intense, unpredictable, and attention-seeking, the former mistress of Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson went from the ragtag life of a Ziegfeld Follies performer to a pampered concubine. Eventually exhausted by Lucy’s antics, Nucky meets Margaret Schroeder, a clever Irish widow, and casts his former squeeze to the wayside. Now pregnant with the child of Nelson Van Alden, a Prohibition agent with a long-distance wife and an unyielding religious conviction, Lucy is a miserable shred of what she once was. I prefer to think of her restored to former glory as Nucky’s arm candy, draped in jewels and sumptuous furs.
Here’s your guide to channeling Lucy Danziger’s opulent 1920s look this Halloween, and remember to tune in to HBO Sunday nights at 9 p.m. for the next installment of “Boardwalk Empire”! Keep reading »
No woman in this day and age is exempt from the overwhelming pressure to be whippet thin. Most popular depictions of females and femininity are marked by protruding clavicles, razor hipbones, and legs like string beans. High fashion models of today are the worst perpetrators with many models bringing skeletons to mind. It’s no wonder that the appearance of these girls leads many people to wonder if they ever eat at all! Epicurean pleasures — my personal favorite — are lost on them. How depressing is that?
And yet a trend of sorts has arisen recently in editorial photoshoot: models enjoying food. Read on for Terry Richardson‘s photos of high fashion models stuffing their faces, followed by a couple candids of models eating food in — gasp! — real situations.
Julie’s post earlier on the insensitivity and dubious legality of “Navajo” and “Native American” products got me thinking about just how many popular stores have committed this ridiculous faux pas. It turns out that there’s even more than I had originally suspected. A quick look around the web led me to the eight following atrocities, among countless other similar items. Let’s see who is to be commended on their unbelievably bad taste today!
When the seasons change, I like to be prepared. I tend to start stocking up on potential fall nail polish shades by, say, mid-August. Of course, I already know which colors I’ll be wearing because they’re the same ones I go for every year — rich, autumnal reds, neutral nudes and taupes and muted shades of true blues and greens. Now that it’s October, it’s safe to say that normal people who are not hoarders like myself can now assuredly begin to make their selections for the latter seasons. Here are my top 10 picks for fall and winter nail polish. Click to buy after the jump! Keep reading »
