Happy Friday! Let’s close out this week with a blind item, this one via Crazy Days And Nights:
“This A list tweener has a problem. Well more than one problem but there are some things that can never be taught. Anyway, she had a boyfriend. Not exactly being a role model she got his name tattooed on her body in a place most people won’t see for a few more months. Now though, she has a bigger problem than what people say about her tattoo and its location. She has a different boyfriend and he doesn’t like opening the presents so to speak and seeing another name so our tweener is going to change it but can’t decide if it should be the new boyfriend’s name or something generic like don’t chew gum with your mouth open.”
Hmm, my instinct says Miley, but there are just so many to choose from! What do you think? Regardless, let this be a lesson — do not get a boyfriend’s name tattooed on your mons pubis. Or anywhere else for that matter. Keep reading »

It’s Hanukkah time again. Let us not forget to honor the hot Jewish guys who keep our flame burning all year. These sizzling members of the tribe are nothing to sneeze about. That wasn’t a “big nose” joke by the way. Click through to see some amazing Jewish men who are not the short, cheap, neurotic, mama’s boys you were expecting. L’chaim!
Some see fashion in terms of numbers—both in sizes and dollars. The blog Fashematics adds things up differently, however, making hilarious equations based on outfits that come down the runway. (E.g. tire tracks + snakes = Miu Miu fall ’09.) Now they’ve come out with a zine that features illustrations of runway looks from the spring/summer 2010 shows. The austere but artsy publication, titled Fashematical, “[reinterprets] the stars of the catwalk as part of either a horde of zombies or an army of robots, hell-bent on taking planet Earth for themselves. Featuring clothes by Prada, Bernhard Willhelm, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Chanel and more…”

You’ve survived Black Friday and the post-Thanksgiving work week, but there’s more shopping to do and, because we live in America, we’re lucky that many malls contain this magical relaxation device called a “movie theater.” Sure, not every movie is relaxing, but the act of movie-going and the traditions that go along with it are comforting; the smell of popcorn, the pleather seat giving in to your weight, the first inhale of carbonated sugar water. This week, feel guilty for avoiding your parents over the holidays with “Everybody’s Fine,” feel shame for sleeping with your presumed dead husband’s brother with “Brothers,” or avoid relationships altogether with “Up In The Air.” Keep reading »
If “Coco Avant Chanel” didn’t satisfy your prying mind about the iconic designer, here’s a bit of eye candy for you. The fashion blog Sea of Shoes got a very privileged look at Coco Chanel‘s Parisian apartment at 31 Rue Cambon. It isn’t anything like we expected! The vibe we get from the photos of the warm-toned living room and dining room with a classically set table feels much more masculine than Paris-chic. The aesthetic relies on global decor with screens that look like they were imported from China once upon a time and statues of camels and giraffes. Take a tour yourself by checking out the pics after the jump! [Sea of Shoes] Keep reading »
This week, we’re giving away a $200 JCPenney gift card to the best commenter on The Frisky. Whoever wins is going to have a tough time figuring out how to use it, so here’s an idea.
We’re always oohing and ahhing at the jewels celebs wear on the red carpet, from ginormous jade rings to intricate diamond and platinum bracelets, but, sadly, those statement makers don’t really have a place in our everyday lives. What we would wear pretty much every day, however, is a pair of diamond hoop earrings. They’d add some sparkle to our workday ensembles, and they’re elegant enough to pair with our best dress (should we ever have occasion to bring it out of the closet). [$229.99, JCPenney]
WIN THIS! We’re giving away a $200 gift card provided by JCPenney to use however you wish, but you have to work if you want it! The best commenter for this coming week — from today, Friday, Dec. 4 through Thursday, Dec. 10 — will be awarded with the gift card. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can. Click HERE to read the official rules. And remember to check Gift For Gab on Dec. 11 to see if you’re the winner. Keep reading »
In the market for a new pillowcase? Here’s one that claims to make you prettier overnight. Right. Beautyzzz Natural Silk Pillowcase claims that it “works naturally with skin and hair to make nighttime beauty routines more effective.” Since it’s made of skin-friendly elements (hypoallergenic silk) instead of cotton, all those creams and moisturizers you put on before bedtime, apparently, will work even better. Plus, the company promises that you can say goodbye to bed head and wrinkle lines on your face. So, for $47.00 would you shell out? [Grazia] Keep reading »
Scent is certainly a powerful element in generating attraction from the opposite sex, but when a new study came out this week pointing to Chanel No. 5 as the perfume most likely to seduce a man, we were doubtful. The idea that you could bag a guy with a specific perfume seems far-fetched as it is, and the claim that one in 10 women met the men of their dreams while wearing No. 5 seems even further from the truth. Have you smelled the stuff? It’s one pungent aroma that came into style in the ’20s and smells like it’s been in the same bottle since then.
Yet, an article in the French version of Marie Claire (December 2009) provides evidence that potentially supports this argument. Chanel No. 5 may attract men, but they might not be your dream guys. Keep reading »
