I’m a collector of many things, like shoes, Barbie dolls and magazines (I still have the first issue of Lucky). I never really notice my magazine stacks until I’m trying to find space on my bedroom floor for a new shoe box. Obviously, my boudoir is cluttered, so this month I’m going to go through all my mags and only keep the really important ones. I’ll also clip out any stories, photos or covers I like. And while I’m at it, I’ll create an inspiration board of my clippings, lifting the clutter off the floor and onto an organized bulletin board. I think this is the perfect step for you to also get a jump on your New Year’s de-clutter resolution.
While it’s hard to measure your boobs for a bra, it’s easy to measure a year by them. And 2008 certainly had its peaks and valleys! The economy sagged, Barack lifted us, Heidi Montag made us heave, and Tina Fey perked us up. All in all, these past 12 months have been a titacular time! So, here are The Frisky’s favorite mammary memories of 2008…
The year is winding down, which means it’s time to reflect back on the music we played over, and over, and over, and over, and over again. Below, listen to the songs we had on repeat, then let us know whether you agree with our selection in the comments! Keep reading »
Every year we miss the Dec. 31 deadline for the New York Cares Coat Drive. And then we guiltily buy a new coat and promise ourselves to make a donation next year. And this month we’ll fulfill that promise and we hope you will too. If you’re not in the New York area, you can donate your gently used coat at any Burlington Coat Factory during the Warm Coats & Warm Hearts Coat Drive. And as if the warm and fuzzy feeling you get from making a donation wasn’t enough, Burlington will take 10 percent off your purchase when you donate a coat. So now you can buy yourself something without any guilt, or you can keep spreading the love by donating a little something-something to a needy child. Most communities have a charity that is fulfilling holiday wishes for children.
In case you missed the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” on CBS last night, the New York Post reports that at least one of the models was “fat.” Yes, fat. The Post was at the taping in Miami last month and knows for a “fact” that model Karolina Kurkova had put on the pounds, at least according to a woman at the show sitting next to reporter Raakhee Mirchandani. “‘She really porked out,’ the woman whispered. “’It’s good she dropped a little bit of weight, but really … ‘” Just how did she drop that “little bit of weight”? Well, for starters, she cut out all carbs and wheat, drank a ton of “green juice,” and exercised three hours a day. Poor thing! All that work and still so … “fat.” Life’s really unfair sometimes! At any rate, it’s too bad all that talk about the economy affecting beauty standards hasn’t had much impact on the fashion industry yet. If we’re going to live in a recession, we should at least have the benefit of big hips being in vogue. [NYPost] Keep reading »
My ex and I shared the same iTunes library and while in some ways it has served me well — so much Led Zeppelin! — it has also caused much, much embarrassment. You know how you can set your IM status message to show what song you’re listening to? Well, it is really no fun when someone out of the blue pings me and says, in a patronizing tone, “Why on earth are you listening to Shinedown?!” That’s why I’m taking the next 29 days to reorganize my iTunes, deleting the music I absolutely DO NOT want representing my taste on IM, creating playlists, and downloading new songs that I can’t wait to listen to on the way to work. I suggest you do the same and while you’re at it, add a bunch of rock star approved tracks by checking out our Get Your Rocks Off playlists from bands like Girl Talk and The Postelles, and singers like Rhett Miller and Craig David.
