Knowd: Simply Irresistible
Jennifer Lopez completed her first-ever triathlon in Malibu in under two-and-a-half hours on Sunday. The Nautica-sponsored charity event helped to raise money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. This was a great moment in girl power and philanthropy, but we’re more fascinated by the fact that J.Lo canceled her guest judge appearance on Project Runway because she had a foot injury. I guess she could wear sneakers, but not heels. And sitting at a fashion show was so much more painful than a 1/2-mile swim, 18-mile bike ride and 4-mile run. [People] Keep reading »
Why didn’t he call? What did I do wrong? Do you think he likes me? If I had a nickel for every time I asked my BFF these questions, I’d be rich. While I may pointlessly fritter away my imaginary nickels on high-heels, it turns out that I’ve definitely been wasting my energy and time, not just the money I’ve spent, on the wrong lovers. According to an article in The New York Times by Sarah Kershaw, “Girl Talk Has Its Limits,” constantly looking for a sympathetic ear may be sabotaging your relationships. While getting validation for your vagina troubles can be comforting, stewing in your confusion with your girly support group may do more harm than good. Apparently, psychologists have concluded that over-analyzing situations can be a recipe for cyclical negative thinking and even increase anxiety, especially in teen girls. Rather than formulating plans of action or simply living in the moment, chewing on every morsel of your relationship with your girlfriends cooks all the little bits into juicy gossip. While your bitches may give you the emotional band-aid you’re looking for, placing that much social significance on each twist and turn in a tawdry affair can suck the fun right out of all that sucking face. Not to mention, technology has made “co-rumination” as instantaneously easy as an email, phone call, or text message. Nowadays, you can chitchat mid-rendezvous like a sports announcer calling the shots at a match. Granted, love is a game we’re all playing, so clearly labeling relationship reflection as merely “girl talk” definitely has its sexist problems. After all, you know, men smack-talk it up, too! Alas, the researchers claim that when guys open up to each other, albeit less frequently, it actually helps their romance. So, somehow, our need to constantly communicate with our gal pals has created a glass ceiling for love. Ugh! Well, ceilings need vents, dammit. [Scarleteen] Keep reading »
New York Fashion Week ended on Friday after seven days of sometimes amazing — and sometimes hideous — clothes, a gazillion models, gallons of makeup, and a fleet of shiny black Town Cars filled with pretty young things. In case you were under a rock last week, here’s how it all went down…
I know I’m getting a little ahead of Project Runway’s TV schedule, but I just couldn’t resist discussing the final collections of the remaining six contestants, especially since photos of the shows are available everywhere, including Bravo. Although Jerell, Joe, Kenley, Suede, Korto and Leanne debuted their collections, I suspect the men were decoys because all three of them lacked design innovation — or had collections that were just plain ugly. If you can’t wait until the season finale, then click ahead, but if spoilers grind your gears, don’t click “CONTINUE READING.” Keep reading »
The Levi’s 501 button-fly line of jeans is teaming with the Logo network, which is aimed at gay and lesbian viewers and was introduced in 2005 as part of MTV Networks. The “Logo Unbuttoned” title echoes the phrase “Live Unbuttoned,” which is the theme of an international ad campaign for Levi’s 501 that was introduced in July. Levi’s will be the only sponsor for a program block Logo plans to launch on October 12, “Saturday Nights Unbuttoned Presented by Levi’s,” which will run from 1 to 3 a.m. on Sunday mornings. The programming will include series like “The Big Gay Sketch Show,” “Queer as Folk,” and “The L Word”; music videos; comedy shows with Mario Cantone and Joan Rivers; theatrical movies like “Fighting Tommy Riley”; and short films. For the first time, Logo will not edit these shows for language or other content, but some taboos, like frontal nudity, will still apply. The shows will be available on the web and mobile phones as well as on TV. In all outlets, there will be commercials and video clips featuring gay men and lesbians talking candidly about trying to live life “unbuttoned.” [New York Times] Keep reading »
While my Dolly Parton-esque double D’s provide my sexy-time friends with far, far more than a handful, my breasts prevent me from normal activities. Like crossing my heart to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Like squeezing between tables at restaurants without whacking someone in the face. Like wearing button-up shirts and running at the same time. Still, are my bodacious ta-ta’s any more intrusive than, say, the pair men have — that is: balls? I mean, how do they run with those things dangling between their legs? There’s just no denying it. Ladies and gents have bulky body baggage. Thankfully, some gender-bending reporters over at Time Out New York decided to put their work-out routine to the boobs versus balls test. Their results? Frank and beans are easier to exercise with than a couple of milk jugs. But here at the Frisky, let’s talk about when appendages really matter: the sex act. Which cushion do you think is worse for the pushin’? [Boinkology] Keep reading »
This dress, designed by Kate Moss, is equal parts sexy, flirty, and badass. It’s exactly what Beyonce meant when she coined the term “Freakum Dress.” The plunging neckline and short skirt will have all the boys drooling. You won’t even have to speak when wearing this dress because it speaks for itself: “We’re getting some tonight.” [$135, Topshop] Keep reading »
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
The ax will fall and your patience ends. Whatever new or old piece you’ve been cozying up with will start to lose his luster as reality seeps in. Where your mood will go, god only knows. The situation: a 50/50 chance of taking on a challenge to make the spectacular happen or an all out agony that’ll have you screaming for mercy.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Excuses come pouring in, trying to incite some sort of sympathy from you and although you’ll want to give whomever this head-case is the benefit of the doubt, your instincts will be tugging at you to think again. No matter what you do, don’t question yourself. Your inner voice will be on point — not only in straightening out your love life, but boosting your career too.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Control is your drug. Try all you want, but if you don’t try to detox from it, the more frustrating your life will get. Understand this isn’t your time to be in the driver’s seat anyway. Get your ass into the passenger’s side and enjoy the scenic views of your life that are happening now. Otherwise, if you don’t appreciate what you’ve got, you will get no more.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You’ve never been one to follow rules, except to break them. So, as you seem to sink deeper into a situation you know is wrong for you, use all your discipline you can muster up and pull out while you can. If it’s meant to happen, he’ll need to come after you with a grand gesture of love. However, don’t hold out for a miracle.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Whatever you don’t have the guts to say on purpose will somehow fly out of you mouth and really get the action happening in your current state of affairs. When it happens, the skies will open, the sun will be throwing rays of light at your feet and angels from up above will start strumming their harps. To say the least, hoorah!
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Second guessing yourself is a drag. Even if you screw up, making decisions with conviction is hot. So, whatever you have put out there in the ether, accept it, stand by it, and take pride in it. Even if you do have some uncertainty about it, trust that destiny has your back and will lead you onto the right path. After all, when did, “Ummm…I don’t know?” ever sound sexy?
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Being agreeable doesn’t make you more likable. If you don’t feel confidant to say what you really think, feel and need to that special someone, it’s a red flag. Comfort is key to a healthy relationship — however, all is not lost. To dive right in, reveal a skeleton in your closet. If that doesn’t make him see you differently, then perhaps it’s time to see him differently.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Old habits die hard, and thankfully for you, you love big doses of drama. Not to say it’d be easier, but it’d be more effective to dump one of your nasty routines now and start turning over a new leaf of some sort. Trust that although you might love your pesky little problem, it’s a crutch you’ve outgrown.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
We don’t live in a perfect world. Although it’s nice to think you can be friends with someone after doing the nasty and tried to get it on emotionally with, think again. After all, if it can’t be cool after something as intimate as sex, do you really that friendship would be worth it? Spare your efforts for something more productive, like watching TV.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
It’s a dog eat dog world out there and you have to use everything you’ve got to get ahead. This week, it’s your show-stopping ways of taking over a scene and making it your own. Worshipers will be out in droves to coo at your feet. Feel free to enjoy the NSA excess, as you’ll also need to pump up your ego for a blast from your past heading your way…
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Your romantic nature is pure sweetness, but no one is going catch your vibe through osmosis. Of course, if you take the reins and set the ball in motion with your latest catch by setting up the dates you want and starting the conversations you want, you’ll get what you wish. Seriously, just because you have to be the top won’t make it any less magical.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Life gets great as your sex life make a sharp turn to the left and introduces you to a whole new world of turn-ons that has you realizing you’re way kinkier and skilled than you knew. Cash in your personal days, invite people to join in, throw all the caution to the wind, etc. To say the least, epiphanies will be happening and sexual awakenings will rock your world.
