A desk is a great way to make you feel like a real-life adult-type person (I don’t have a desk). Desks give you a place to stretch out and get work done away from the distraction of the TV, a dedicated place to focus your energies when you need to do work, and perhaps most importantly, a place to hide all the floating papers, junk mail and ephemera that can sometimes take over your life. After the jump, we’ve found a selection of desks to pretty up your place.
So, unlike most of the New York-based Frisky crew, I live just outside of Portland, Oregon. I love my place, which is a one-bedroom in a condo complex (the owner rents it out) that I share with my boyfriend, Nick. Maybe it’s due to growing up with a scientist father who had a large shelf in the living room dedicated to manta ray exoskeletons, but my favorite spaces are the ones that tell stories about the people who live there and spark conversations with the people who visit. I’ve tried to fill my apartment with weird and interesting things that make me happy and comfortable. Click through for a little tour!
We’re all for giving a dude a chance. Once you get past a certain age, you realize that there are no perfect men out there. You’re going to have to be more “accepting” if you don’t intend to be single forever. Sometimes the most princely men are the ones we wouldn’t normally go for or whose foibles are easy to get used to with a little paradigm shifting. Do it — throw out your list, be open-minded, look for a feeling and not for a set of qualities. With that being said, there are certain kinds of guys that should be avoided on your dating journey. Click through to see the 10 types of guys that we advise you to steer clear of. Good luck and may the force be with you.
Today, the word ‘douche’ is synonymous with ‘old school product we don’t actually need.’ Ads for douches seem to be laced with the intent to harm women’s self-esteem, not to mention our vaginas, as douching can actually cause infections. But these ads have an interesting history. Did you know that douche was originally considered a birth control method, back when birth control was illegal? Because of this, it was socially camouflaged as a “hygiene product.” From there, the ads evolved into mothers and daughters with cable-knit sweaters tied around their shoulders, having talks about “feminine odor” on the beach. After the jump, take a look at the history of douching and douche advertisements—which, to this day, are still trying to convince women that a Lysol-flavored vagina is a good thing.
A porno ‘stache, as defined by the Urban Dictionary, is a mustache that looks vaguely like a dead ferret sitting above the upper lip, reminiscent of a ’70s porn star. I just so happen to find these dead ferret-like ‘staches vaguely arousing. Bow chicka bow wow (or however you spell the sounds in bad porno music). Lucky for me these, ‘staches are beginning to find themselves nestling on famous upper lips again. Yessss! Porno chic is back en vogue.
Click through to see some of the sexiest porno ‘staches — both golden oldies and modern marvels. Try to keep your clothes on, ladies.
We were disturbed enough by the John McCain campaign staffer who courted a 17-year-old by visiting her at her high school. But yesterday, we heard about actor Doug Hutchison, the actor from “Lost” and “The Green Mile,” and his new bride, wannabe country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden. He’s 51. She is 16. And while it’s obvious from their wedding photo that neither of them looks their age, just … EWWWW. (Also, is that really their wedding photo? Creepy.) Of course, the couple recognizes that they are unusual. “We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial,” they said in a statement. “But we’re very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless.” Her parents, apparently, approve of the union. [E! Online] This is hardly the fist case where a famous adult fell for a teenager. After the jump, other folks who had relationships with someone underage.
Since it’s The Frisky’s 7 Days To A Prettier Place week, we’re showing off our humble abodes. Mine is humble in many ways, but absolutely wonderful in others. For starters, it is on the petite side; like Kate’s, my place clocks in at around 450 square feet, although it’s laid out like a studio rather than a one bedroom. I have to say, it’s all the space I actually need. Sure, I would like to have an indoor hammock and a kitchen with decent counter space and a clawfoot bathtub, but considering it’s just me and little Lucca, our south-facing apartment with views of all three bridges is pretty damn sweet. So, allow me to welcome you into my apartment. Get comfortable, stay awhile, would you like a Diet Coke?
Hey folks. Since it’s The Frisky’s 7 Days To A Prettier Place week, we thought we’d each take you into our apartments and show you, uh, where the magic happens. So, welcome to my humble abode! The first thing most people notice when they walk into my place is that the walls are very, very bright—my living room (the South Wing*) is Kelly Green and my bedroom (the North Wing) is Rocky Mountain Blue. When I first told my parents I was planning on painting my apartment such vivid colors, they wanted to stage an intervention. But even they have to admit that it looks pretty cool, since I used kept the inset molding white. Gotta use the architecture in a place, no?
I am in love with this West Elm lamp, which adds a lot of style for $149. I found my coffee table on the street—I just sanded it, tightened the screws and painted it black.
*This is a joke because my entire apartment is 450 square feet. But, hey, it feels like a palace to me because until two years ago, I lived in a 250 square foot studio.
They say blondes have more fun, but brunettes probably have way less hair damage. Olivia Wilde knows what we mean — the actress showed up to the premiere of “The Five-Year Engagement” this week with a head of honey colored hair. Just days before, her locks were chestnut. What do you think of Olivia’s trip to the light side?
It’s de rigeur that celebs change up their hair color on a shockingly frequent basis. Remember: beauty is pain, and pain is a bottle of peroxide. As such, famous ladies like Kelis, Kate Beckinsale, and Kim Kardashian have been known to take their color up a notch, in the aim of going for a sunny California look. But does it work, or should they have kept their dark locks in the shade? You decide.
