We Want To Go To There: Samoa’s Epic Swimming Hole

It’s Tuesday. Most of us are sitting behind a desk nursing our first (or second?) cup of coffee. Let’s do some collective daydreaming that we’re cooling off in a giant jungle swimming hole, shall we? This photo was originally posted on a Facebook travel page as “spotted in Mexico,” but a commenter pointed out that it’s actually the Sua Ocean Trench in Samoa. Who wants to come along for my fact-checking mission? [Facebook]

Full disclosure: I love me some Khloe Kardashian Odom. I think she’s just the right mix of funny, smart, raunchy, and honest, and if she ever invited me over to her palace for cocktails and gossip on the condition that I change my name to Kinona, I would totally do it. That being said, the outfit Khloe wore to promote her and Lamar’s new perfume, “Unbreakable,” is, well, a little broken. I really have no idea what’s going on with those (painted?) jeans, and the two-tone leather jacket and strappy stiletto sandals aren’t helping. Khloe, I’m konfused. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Must Haves: 10 Marvelous Maxi Dresses For $55 Or Less

Ever since I spotted Sarah Michelle Gellar looking absolutely gorgeous in a floral maxi dress and a slouchy cardigan, I’ve been wanting to add a new maxi dress or two to my wardrobe.

If you’d like to get on board the maxi dress train, here are 10 gorgeous options to consider…

How To Choose Your Kicks
New to the world of stylish sneakers? Start here! Read More »

Python print shoes are pretty cool. And studded shoes are totally badass. And neon shoelaces are a cool flourish. And big embroidered text across the toes of your shoes is alright, I guess. But as these Melody Ehsani x Reebok sneakers illustrate, all these things together in one shoe is, well, a bit much. Anyone out there dying for a pair? If so, these crazy kicks come out on September 30th. [Nice Kicks]

Brr! It’s cold in here! There must be an incredible Jean Paul Gaultier dress in the atmosphere! Seriously though, Torrance Shipman Kirsten Dunst looks amazing at the LA premiere of her new movie, “Bachelorette,” wearing a slouchy JPG resort gown that strikes just the right balance of retro and modern. I never thought a double-breasted trench coat-inspired dress with a ruffled collar neckline and pockets would work, but oh man, Kirsten is working it. Also I’m totally going to beg Rachel for a Beauty Cues post about this makeup look. I want to steal Kiki’s dewy complexion and berry lips, like, stat. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

After turning in a killer reunion performance with the rest of the Spice Girls at the Olympics closing ceremony, Ginger Spice Geri Haliwell jetted off to the south of France to recover.

If stealing her style is what you want (what you really, really want), then check out our copycat look, after the jump! Keep reading »

In honor of How To Deal Week, today’s Saturday Playlist is a collection of songs that helped us get through tough times in our lives. These are the songs we listened to as we dealt with break-ups, death, depression, family drama, being alone in a new city, and realizing our high school crush was never going to like us back. Listen to it as a whole, or pick and choose the tracks that speak to you, but either way, we hope this music will help you deal with whatever you’re going through. And believe us, it will get better… Keep reading »

This piece is part of The Frisky’s How To Deal Week, in which we’re tackling mental health issues.

I suppose in some ways I was destined to become a control freak. I was born into a proud dynasty of control freaks. My family is Italian, and growing up it was made very clear to me that a woman’s job is to keep everyone–especially the men–in line. Not only was I the oldest child, I was the only girl with three younger brothers, so I had a big job to do. If one of my brothers did something dumb, I could expect a call from my grandma asking why I’d “let him act that way.” “You have to control your brothers,” my great aunt would tell me as she rolled out biscotti dough. “If you don’t, who will?” Keep reading »
