Cheapskate: Leopard-Print Shoes, Boots, And Bags For Less

Annika Harris / October 7, 2010

The above objects of desire — Christian Louboutin’s Big Lips Booty boots, Valentino’s Leopard Hair Calf Bow Tote, and Lanvin’s Leopard-Print Knee Boot — all cost way more than $1,000! And while leopard print continues to be a big trend, we can’t justify spending a month’s rent and food allowance on boots or a bag. More »

Padded Underwear Gives Men A Bigger Bulge

Wendy Atterberry / October 4, 2010

They’ve already created a Spanx-like tummy-tucker undershirt for men, and now Marks & Spencer, the British version of Target, is introducing “bum lift” underpants, that claim to lift men’s bootays by about a fifth, and “frontal enhancement” underwear that uses an “integral shelf,” to give men what the company describes as a “38 percent visual… More »

Man Bibs Make Self-Love Clean-Up A Snap!

Carli Alexa Blau / July 23, 2010

Poor dudes. Masturbation is just so messy. Once a dude is ready to blow, he’s forced to find a roll of toilet paper, box of tissues, or a sock to take care of the aftermath. Well, it’s time for men to save their Kleenex for the sniffles, stop using up all the TP, and leave… More »

With Poo-Pourri Your Poop Doesn’t Have To Stink!

Carli Alexa Blau / June 1, 2010

What goes up must come down. What goes in must come out. The truth is, everybody poops, but it’s embarrassing for some to go in unfamiliar surroundings, like your new lover’s place. Now you can poop anywhere without being embarrassed. Single? Think about this: You’re on the way to work one morning and you need… More »

Shoplifters Of The World Use Gift Cards

Leonora Epstein / January 1, 2010

Forget that gift cards generally make lousy presents, another reason why they’re an all-around bad idea: they’re becoming popular vehicles of crime. The New York Times reports that more and more, retail employees are committing theft by manipulating stores’ gift cards. When you think about it, these electronic devices are far more clever than filling… More »

Frenemy Gift Idea: A Beautiful Pile Of Coal

Bianca Posterli / December 24, 2009

For parents, part of the joy of Christmas is knowing your children will behave in the days leading up to Santa’s arrival. But when you grow up, the scary possibility of finding coal in your stocking instead of presents has been fairly nonexistent, until now: Lush Cosmetics decided to bring back the sooty gift thi… More »

What I Really Want for Christmas: Ice Skates

Lily Q / December 22, 2009

As we get older, Christmas gifts have a tendency of getting more expensive and less whimsical. Barbie’s Dream House is replaced with four-inch Louboutin heels and it’s exciting, yes, but also a bit sad. I don’t remember the last time I received a gift that legitimately made me smile. That’s not to say that friends,… More »

So Wrong: Kid In A Kit To Fool The Office

Leonora Epstein / December 17, 2009

We’ve talked before about reasons not to have children, so here’s another—you can just fake it! When it comes to balancing work and home life, we mainly think about the negative … but doesn’t having kids also give you a legitimate reason to do less work, too? (Real-world answer: no.)

Give Your Dog A Hipster ‘Stache & Make Him Happy At The Same Time

Amelia McDonell-Parry / November 18, 2009

The mustache obsession continues! Yesterday I needed something to make me smile (I wasn’t feeling so fab) and then I came across this totally awesome dog toy and I did more than that — I squealed. I am so going to put this mustache chew toy in my dog Lucca’s stocking (yes, she gets a… More »

A Dog Crate For Your Posh, Modern Pooch

Amelia McDonell-Parry / November 9, 2009

Back when I adopted my dog Lucca as an 8-week-old puppy, she needed to be crate trained. Crate-training is the very best way to teach a dog to use the restroom outside and only outside, not, say, on couches covered in micro-suede or on beds after Mommy has just changed the sheets. The puppy spend… More »

Hair Model Citizen: Doesn’t Your Cat Deserve A Wig Today?

Erin Flaherty / November 6, 2009

This sweet puss is a Hair Model Citizen because she fearlessly dares to go where no cats that we know of have gone before. In fact, last time we tried to put a wig on our friend’s cat, let’s just say the outcome was anything but pretty. To get the look, you’ll need to click… More »

Smooshy Wooshy Puppy Wuppy Baggy Waggy

Erin Flaherty / November 4, 2009

We’re not sure all dogs are like this, but at least two Frisky staffers’ dogs love to burrow into blankets and towels and piles of clothes and, in some cases, even leaves and snow. We’re not sure why this is, but it certainly is freakin’ adorable when they do, we’ll tell ya that much. If… More »
