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.

Why Women On Dating Sites Don’t Respond To Men

Did you know that when it comes to online dating, it’s a chick’s market? Apparently, dudes get shut down left and right, and women get winked and emailed to death. If you check out, you’ll see that it’s men who are sending out plenty of emails, but rarely do they get a return email. Sucks for you, fellas! Regardless, we here at The Frisky are big fans of the males, and we thought we would explain why you never heard back from us. Keep reading »

Win This! The Frisky Cotton Tote Bag

We all want to be good to Mother Earth, but figuring out how to help without rearranging your whole life can be tricky. So here’s our advice for becoming a little more green: Fold up a tote bag, and keep it in your purse at all times. Instead of letting cashiers put your purchases in a paper or plastic bag, take out your handy-dandy tote. No matter what you’re buying, whether it’s a new skirt or your weekly groceries, you don’t need another disposable bag to throw out (or, hopefully, recycle) once you get home. Just don’t forget to put your tote back in your handbag so you’ll always be prepared for your next purchase.

WIN THIS! We’re giving away five cotton tote bags to help you get your green on, but you have to work if you want one. In the comments, tell us your best advice for living more eco-friendly by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 29. We’ll pick our favorite responses and announce the winners on Friday, April 30. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
