Behold: The World’s First Invisible Bike Helmet

Your Vagina And Your Bike
What you need to know. Read More »

This woman is wearing a bike helmet. Do you see it? Probably not, because it’s not there. Confused yet? OK, here’s the deal: you’re looking at a photo of an innovative product called the Hövding, which is being touted as the world’s first “invisible bike helmet.” See that zip-up scarf around the model’s neck? Housed inside that unassuming fabric collar is an accelerometer and gyroscope that detect motion and trigger the release of an airbag to protect your delicate cranium in the event of a crash. Developed by a pair of Swedish women, the Hövding certainly isn’t cheap (it currently retails for $600 and works once), but it has the potential to revolutionize the world of bike safety and put an end to helmet hair. Pretty cool, huh? Would you ever wear one?

After the jump, check out a video about the development of this incredible technology and how the designers dealt with sexism they encountered in the process of bringing their product to the marketplace…

As Julie has previously mentioned, leopard print is tough to get right, but it can definitely be done. I think Heidi Klum looks pretty amazing here (I mean, she’s Heidi Klum, so not looking amazing would be a much more difficult endeavor), although I could do without the ruffle hem, and the black leather belt seems a bit heavy to be paired with strappy stiletto sandals. Overall though, I’m going to place this in the “successful leopard print” category. What say you?

I think I’ve mentioned my love for Revlon Lip Butters a few times now, most recently in the context of my summer makeup routine, but I thought it was time to make things official and ask Lip Butter to marry me write up a full Beauty Test Drive. This awesome lip balm/lipstick hybrid is the bestselling lip color of the year, and I’ve contributed to its success by buying three shades (so far) and recommending it to many of my friends, especially the ones who are hesitant about lipstick. Want to know why? Get the scoop, after the jump… Keep reading »

10 Party Foods Guaranteed To Make You Popular

I spend most of my life thinking about food, but as soon as I get an invite to a party that includes the phrase, “Please bring a dish to share,” my mind goes completely blank. For someone who loves to cook, I’ve showed up at way too many parties sheepishly holding a store-bought cold cuts platter. But you know what? I think it’s finally time to tackle the party food challenge. I sought out 10 crowd-pleasing treats that are easy to make, easy to eat, delicious, and–in certain cases–downright adorable (grilled cheese bites, anyone?). Click through to check ‘em out, but beware: these recipes could cause your social calendar to fill up very quickly…

I love the cap toe shoe trend that’s happening right now: white ballet flats with black toes; black stiletto slingbacks with silver toes; pink pumps with yellow toes–I’ll take a pair of each, please! For some reason the idea that you can DIY your own cap toe shoes totally blew my mind, even though it’s one of the simplest projects I’ve ever come across. All you need is tape, spray paint, and a simple pair of shoes ready to get the cap toe treatment. As you can see, neon toes look fabulous on tan pumps, but you could try whatever color combo worked best with your wardrobe. If you give this DIY a try, send me a pic of your finished footwear at winona@thefrisky.com! [Green Wedding Shoes]

Barbies At Prom

Everyone, I’d like you to meet Drag Queen Barbie. Created for Mattel (yep, this is a real, official, honest-to-God Barbie) by design duo The Blonds, the cross-dressing doll is decked out in a bejeweled mini dress, satin-lined fur cape, and some seriously smoky eye makeup. Drag Queen Barbie is a collector’s edition, so she doesn’t come cheap, but hey, $125 is a small price to pay to add a fierce gender-bending Barbie to your heteronormative doll collection. Currently available for pre-order at Barbie Collector, Drag Queen Barbie will be released just in time for Christmas, but if Santa forgets to bring you one, don’t get too discouraged–you can always DIY your own with a fabulous Barbie dress and a willing Ken Doll.

The Aurora Borealis Cocktail Is The Coolest Drink Ever

Want to know a neat trick? Apparently if you add pink lemonade concentrate to gin (or vodka) and tonic, you’ll have a pretty pink cocktail that turns into a crazy bright aquamarine OUTER SPACE DRINK under a black light. So round up your friends, mix up some of these Aurora Borealis cocktails, re-watch the footage of the Curiosity landing, and play a rousing game of “Pin the mohawk on Bobak Ferdowsi.” Cheers!

Dear Drunk Tourist,

You sauntered up to the Rome airport’s international terminal with a backpack and a can of beer, ready to check in for your flight. When no one showed up to help you (God, customer service these days!), you jumped over the counter and snuggled up on the baggage belt for a quick nap. This would have been a totally reasonable plan, except that baggage belt started moving, taking you deep into the secure mazes of conveyor belts within the airport while you snoozed contentedly. Who knows how far you would have gone or which corner of the world you would have been shipped to if security guards hadn’t spotted you on their x-ray monitors and plucked you out of your drunk suitcase dreams.

Listen dude, I’m not sure if it’s your laissez-faire attitude or the fact that the x-ray scan of you looks like an ultrasound photo of an adult man-baby, but I’m intrigued. What do you say next time you let me buy you a beer and we take a nap together?

xoxo,
Winona
