Don’t get me wrong, I am not about to complain about this choice photograph of Robert De Niro clutching Lil Bub at the Tribeca Film Festival Directors Brunch. However. As an animal lover, I do have my concerns that Bub’s saturation level has passed the point of Internet sensation and entered exploitation territory. Bub is but a very brief, very lovely shooting star in our mortal universe, not meant to stick around long, and I fear for her well-being when she is being paraded around at huge events with large crowds like so. But nobody else seems to be worried about this, so I should probably just shut my mouth. At least Mr. De Niro seems to be handling her with care.

This Creepy Real-Life Barbie Infographic Makes The Doll Ideal Very Unappealing

April 23: What Are We Wearing Today?

Finally, we’re all back at The Frisky HQ! Did you miss us? There’s a lot of construction going on in the office right next door, so we worked from home all last week because of all the noise. It’s pretty dreary out, so we aren’t exactly wearing the sundresses and sandals we pictured ourselves in this time of year … oh well. It’s supposed to be 70 out tomorrow, so things are looking up! Let’s see what we’re wearing on this deceptively un-springlike day…

This late April has brought about some seriously weird weather here in NYC. It’s 45 and rainy today and set to be 72 and sunny tomorrow, so not only do we have no idea what to wear, but our bodies have no idea what to do with themselves. This, naturally, presents Beauty Problems galore. We can’t be bothered with complaining about our stuffy noses and tension headaches when there are more pressing issues like chapped lips and frizzy hair at hand! Julie has a newly-developed lip balm addiction, Winona is dealing with skin sensitivity and blotchiness (and layering on the foundation to no avail as a result which, come on, we all do), and I have an incredibly painful under-the-skin zit that as of right now is invisible to everyone but me. Are you having any weather or stress-induced beauty issues? Let’s commiserate. Please? [Photo of woman looking at face in mirror from Shutterstock]

Be My Boyfriend: The Beautiful Minds Behind Beloved Shirts

The One That Started It All
Forget Jesus, check out this Oprah face sweatshirt. Read More »

An incredible thing happened to me on Sunday night: I saw God for the very first time. Or, you know, this Oprah face sweatshirt, but it’s the exact same thing. I texted Julie immediately to make her aware of my intentions to purchase two (one for each of us, naturally) so that we might match, and never wear any other shirt ever again in our lives. She took it one step further and pointed me in the direction of the sweatshirt’s source, a Utah-based company called Beloved Shirts. Man, if you thought that Oprah sweatshirt was great (and I did, obviously), check out all these other ones!

I’m not entirely sure who is behind Beloved, or if they would like to date me, but I’m putting it out there that I would definitely like to date them. On the off chance that they don’t want to date me, which would be weird, I guess I could settle for them sending me one of their beautiful creations. Please take a look at some of my choicest favorites in this gallery, and keep in mind that I would happily accept every single one, though I am most emotionally invested in the Step Brothers sweatshirt (shown), and am also pretty loose about giving out my address to strangers. Only in the name of perfect sweatshirts, of course. [Beloved]

Kelly Osbourne Needs To Step Away From The Bronzer, Stat

Choosing A Bronzer
Which bronzer is right for you? Read More »

I can’t be sure if Kelly Osbourne‘s unfortunate mishap is the result of an overzealous bronzer application, or whether self-tanner is to blame — really, it could go either way. But Kelly usually has such lovely fair skin, and it goes so well with her glamorous, edgy vibe… As a lifelong Extra Pale, I always feel disappointed when a fellow fog-dweller turns to the bronze side. Why do some celebrities have such an aversion to their natural skin tones? There’s nothing wrong with being pale; it just helps people find you better in the dark! I’ve always fancied myself a bit of a human lantern, personally. Oh yeah, and above are some other celeb tanning disasters…
