Win This! One Kiss By Cindy Crawford Multi-Gemstone Necklace

While we love to accessorize our outfits, sometimes we get a little lazy and just keep the same necklace on for weeks. But as long as the piece is something like this One Kiss by Cindy Crawford necklace, wearing it for days on end wouldn’t be a problem at all. The necklace features various colorful gems — citrine, garnet, and lemon quartz — so it goes with everything, meaning we can be negligent accessorizers and still look polished.

[$199.99, JCPenney]

You find a $100 in your pocket (OK, unlikely, but work with us here), so what do you do? Stock up on Havaianas for the summer or deposit it immediately?

Personal Finance Expert Manisha Thakor (author of Get Financially Naked) is The Frisky’s money expert, whose awesome advice has appeared in our Money 101 and Cash & Coupling columns.

Will any of Manisha’s advice ring true for you? Find out! [Therapy For Your Pocketbook]

Win This! Rowenta Pressure Iron And Steamer

Ironing clothes is not one of our strong suits, and we avoid this task at all costs. Our problem stems from two issues: We were never properly taught how to get wrinkles out in the first place, and the iron we’re using to attempt this feat is pretty crappy. Rowenta to the rescue! Not only do designers like Christian Siriano and Zac Posen put Rowenta’s irons and steamers to use during New York Fashion Week, but Rowenta’s StyleLab offers video tutorials for us dummies. Now there’s no excuse for showing up to work in rumpled clothes. [$169.99, ShopRowenta.com]


WIN THIS! We’re giving away a Rowenta Pressure Iron and Steamer, but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us your least favorite household chore and why you hate it so much by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 20. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, May 21. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win (Official Rules). Good luck! This contest is now closed.

Why Do Models Always Look So … Dead?

Models are beautiful people. Sure, some of them have legs so long and gangly they walk like newborn giraffes, and their faces often have extremely distinctive features, but all models are beautiful in their own unique way. While we’ve seen them smiling and laughing backstage at shows looking happy and amiable, photographs in fashion magazines often show models looking, well, dead. What’s with the blank gazes? We’d take toothy grins (crooked teeth are cute!) over dead man’s stares any day. Click through to see what we mean.
