Welcome to a new style feature, my friends. The title is pretty self-explanatory (OMG! I love your hair!), but basically, since I’m always on the lookout for hair inspiration, I thought it would be fun to give a weekly shoutout to some of the fabulous ‘dos from around the web. First up: this perfectly messy chignon style from Kate over at The Small Things Blog. I love styles that purposefully look a little undone because there’s no pressure to have a shiny, slicked back finished product–if you miss a few pieces or position the bun slightly off center, it just adds to the effect. Check out her video tutorial to get the look for yourself (in about five minutes, natch!).
This past weekend Nick and I went to The Grand Ole Opry and it. was. awesome. The auditorium itself was beautiful, and I was blown away by performances by Rhonda Vincent (seriously, watch her bluegrass version of “Jolene” and try not to fall in love with her!), The Striking Matches, and a bunch of classic country crooners paying tribute to the late George Jones. But my favorite thing about it? The fashion, of course! From the 80-year-old guys wearing sequined blazers to the preponderance of cowboy hats and bolo ties in the audience, it was country-fried glamour at its best. I couldn’t resist seeking out a few Opry-inspired must haves. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
By all accounts, 16-year-old Kiera Wilmot was a model student at Bartow High School in Florida. She got good grades and had never been in trouble. On a recent morning before school, Wilmot mixed a couple household chemicals together in an 8-ounce water bottle that caused, according to witnesses, a small popping sound and a puff of smoke. No one was hurt and no property was damaged. Wilmot immediately explained to school staff that she was conducting a science experiment out of curiosity. Her principal, Ron Pritchard, believes her: “She made a bad choice. Honestly, I don’t think she meant to ever hurt anyone. She wanted to see what would happen [when the chemicals mixed] and was shocked by what it did.”
This story could have ended there, but since Wilmot’s experiment caused an explosion, she was taken into custody by the school police officer, charged with possession/discharge of a weapon on school grounds (a felony), and will be tried as an adult. She was also expelled from school. Say what?! Keep reading »
Kim Kardashian’s airport outfits usually consist of 6-inch stiletto heels, stiff peplum tops, and leather pants so tight that if you look at them for too long you can get a sympathy yeast infection. She’s stuck to this formula even as her pregnancy has progressed, and she always looks so profoundly uncomfortable (and even a little sad?), tottering between terminals in spike heels. But today is a new day, my friends. Kim Kardashian wore this cute, comfy, breathable outfit to the airport. Leggings! A soft chambray shirt! Flat sandals! Is this proof that hell has frozen over? Maybe, but I don’t even care. She looks great. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Does it get any better than pancakes? I’m a big fan of any socially acceptable way to eat cake for breakfast, and these Sunday morning treats come in so many forms: lemon ricotta, oatmeal pumpkin, stuffed Nutella, peach coconut, chocolate banana, whiskey maple(?!). My mouth is watering just typing the names of these crazy-delicious recipes. Click through to check ‘em out, and may God have mercy on your blood sugar!
I literally squealed with glee when I saw this chalkboard manicure, and I was even more excited when I learned it wasn’t some exclusive runway design, but actually a nail art kit available at Sephora. You start with a matte black polish that’s like chalkboard paint for your nails (see also: Pinterest’s wet dream), then once that dries, add some colorful designs with one of the colorful chalk pens, and seal it with a clear top coat. Love. [$25, Sephora]
I’m really excited to debut a new feature today called Style Stealer (Plus!). As much as I love putting together affordable versions of celeb outfits in our regular Style Stealer posts, I don’t like limiting these fabulous fashions to sizes 0-12, so I decided to start a weekly plus-size version. We’re kicking things off with Lauren Conrad’s foxy leather pants and breezy blouse, but if you come across a celeb look you’d like to recreate in your size, shoot me an email at email@example.com and I’ll see what I can do! After the jump, check out all the components of Lauren’s outfit–all in plus sizes, all for $50 or less… Keep reading »
Traveling with the right person or group can turn even a weekend at the beach into an unforgettable experience. On the other hand, traveling with the wrong person can turn the trip of your dreams into a total nightmare. We’ve made an extensive list of the pros and cons of different travel partners before, but in the spirit of Wanderlust 2013, we thought it would be fun to give a shoutout to our favorite traveling companions–and we’d love to hear about yours. Do you like mother-daughter adventures? Sexy getaways with your lover? Big group trips? Do you and your BFF plan all your vacays together? After the jump, find out about The Frisky staff’s favorite travel buddies, and then tell us about yours! Keep reading »
Since it took, like, a humorously long time to get internet set up at my new place (silly Comcast!), I’ve spent the last week and a half working from coffee shops. And here’s the thing: no matter where I went, from a tiny hipster coffee shop to a bustling midtown Starbucks, I saw the same people. Not the exact same people, obviously, but the same basic cast of characters. Who are they? Read on to find out… Keep reading »
