  • Will you be making your first purchase ever at JC Penney come February, when Charlotte Ronson’s line I Heart Ronson comes to stores? Check out photos from the line here. Something tells me the pearlescent baby pink leggings are going to sell out in Ohio. Or not. [Nylon]
  • Google just keeps making our lives more wonderful. By adding “Text Messaging (SMS) in Chat,” in Google Labs, you can text your friends from your Google Chat sidebar in Gmail. (Note: It’s being rolled out to users gradually, so it might not show up in your Lab yet.) [Lifehacker]

    Save Project Runway!

    We love “Project Runway” like Anna Wintour loves wearing black shades at night. We just can’t live without it! As fierce fans, we’re already super nervous about the network switch. Who knows what Lifetime, home of sappy made-for-TV chick flicks, will do with our straight shootin’ Tim Gunn?! They’ve already got him shaking in his stylish boots over the relocation of production to LA for Season 6. As if that wasn’t bad enough, now there’s even more cause for concern due to another move: Heidi Klum says she’ll skedaddle out of America if John McCain wins the election. Oh no! We can’t let Heidi tell America, “Auf Wiedersehen!” [LA Times]

    Michelle And Barack Obama Steal Each Other’s Material

    Apparently Michelle and Barack Obama didn’t have a chance to discuss who was going to share a particular story about how cute their 10-year-old daughter Malia is. On Monday night, Michelle went on “The Tonight Show” and told Jay Leno that Malia didn’t want her dad’s 30-minute commercial to interrupt her favorite TV channels. Then, on “The Daily Show” last night, Barack shared the same anecdote with Jon Stewart. In our opinion, Michelle did a better job with her delivery. Keep reading »

    What’s Your Halloween Costume?

    It’s nearly October 31, aka All Hallows’ Eve, aka Halloween, aka the one day a year you are allowed to be someone else. So, what are you dressing up as? I haven’t decided whether I’m dressing up this year, though my last two costumes — a Gucci bag and Ugly Betty — were amazing, if I do say so myself. Amelia is going as Samantha Ronson with a friend of hers who is dressing up as gal-pal Lindsay Lohan, Simcha is going to be She-Ra Princess of Power (He-Man’s twin sister). Like me, Annika’s not dressing up (she’ll be drinking Hennessey coladas instead), but her sister is dressing up as a leprechaun, which sounds like an awesome costume. Leigh is dressing up as Blair from “Gossip Girl,” of course.

    What’s your costume? Tell us in the comments. And, if your costume is really awesome, send a photo to tips@thefrisky.com, and we’ll post a few on Monday.

    Having trouble figuring out who to be? Read these:

  • Gwen Stefani’s Halloween Costume Is Making Me Hungry
  • Halloween Costumes: Juno & Paulie Bleeker Or Blair Waldorf & Chuck Bass On The Cheap!

    25 Things To Do With Your Extra Hour This Weekend

    Sad news, everyone: this is the weekend we “fall back” as Daylight Saving Time ends and months of dreary cold and sunless days begin. Of course, the perky glass-half-full types are always quick to point out how we gain an extra hour when DST ends, like that somehow makes up for the endless evenings of walking home in the dark while shivering in our multiple winter layers. But you know what? I say let’s make the most of that measly hour! Let’s put our hearts and souls into that extra time we gain and really appreciate the hell out of it and maybe, just maybe, we’ll be rewarded with a winter that sucks just a little less normal. Not sure what to do with your extra hour? Well, after the jump are 25 suggestions… Keep reading »
