Dater X: 10 Things I Did Right As A Single Woman

Last night, while watching “The Bachelor: The Women Tell All,” I found myself getting more than a little choked up watching Ashley Spivey’s one-on-one interview with Chris Harrison. Her hands folded delicately in her lap, she talked about how Brad Womack‘s rejection feels like a pattern she’s been stuck in for years. On that first night, Brad had given her the first impression rose. For maybe two weeks, he adored her. And then, he sent her home. “I’m in disbelief right now,” Ashley said in the backseat of the limo. “They always say the exact same thing, ‘You’re going to make such a great wife, just not for me.’” Elvis crooned “Are You Lonesome Tonight” in the background.

I looked across my living room at a bouquet of flowers that The Young One bought me for no particular reason, and noted that my dog was curled up on a t-shirt he left here over the weekend. The Young One and I are approaching the two-month mark and things remain so awesome between us. But man, oh man, do I remember feeling the way Ashley does. Keep reading »

Style 911: “How Do I Create A Work-From-Home Look Without Dressing Like A Slob?”

I just got a new job, and it allows me to work from home. Great, right? But I’m worried that my style is going to devolve into sweatpants and mu-mus. Can you help me find some work-from-home appropriate pieces that will get me motivated? –Jenny

Since all of us Frisky ladies are in a similar work-from-home boat, I can sympathize with your plight. While some are more comfy and productive in sweats (hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it), others work way better dressing like they’re heading to an office for the day. Personally, I fall into the latter category. Everyday, I dress up — not in a suit or anything — but in something work appropriate, so that I can get in the work mindset. And also, in case there’s a fire in my building or some kind of emergency (like, say, someone spots Joseph Gordon-Levitt hanging out in the neighborhood) that forces me out of my apartment, I’m ready to go. My biggest work outfit productivity trick? I wear shoes in the house. Putting shoes on seems to really get me in the game. After the jump, a cute and comfortable option for you. Keep reading »

Decorate With A Woman’s Severed Head!

Straight from the Kanye West book of severed heads in home decorating, here’s a vintage ad for a “stuffed” woman’s head to mount on your wall. (Click here to see the full ad!) It’s only $2.98, boys! The copy below would be funny if it wasn’t so creepy:

“One of the nicest qualities is that they don’t talk back! Accurately modeled to three-quarters life-size of real gals and molded of skin-textured pliable plastic, these heads are so lifelike they almost breathe. Saucy glittering eyes, full sensuous mouth and liquid satin complexion, combined with radiant hair colors, give astonishing realism to these rare and unique trophies.”

Um, EW. [Huffington Post via DangerousMinds.net] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Sues Over Breast Milk Ice Cream

Lady Gaga is not too happy about The Icecreamists newest flavor in their London ice cream parlor. It’s called Baby Gaga and it’s made from human breast milk. The milk is given by volunteers, who are registered blood donors, and then is pasteurized and mixed with vanilla pods and lemon zest. The flavor costs a whopping $23 per cup and debuted two weeks ago, with women in Lady Gaga-esque get-ups scooping it into martini glasses and topping it with liquid nitrogen and a teething biscuit. British inspectors almost instantly banned sale of the flavor and seized the first batch to make sure it met health standards.

But that hasn’t stopped Lady Gaga’s ire over the situation. Keep reading »
