The Frisky Guidebook: The Emerald City

Seattle’s got Starbucks, Microsoft, grunge, and yes, lots of rain. But it’s also got a whole lot more than that. There’s your standard tourist fare in the form of the Space Needle, Seattle Center and Frank Gehry’s monster of a museum, Experience Music Project, among others. But dig in a little deeper and you’ll find some hidden doors, some sultry sweet spots and some spectacular waterways. Here’s our guide to Seattle’s sexier side. Keep reading »

Tried & Tested: The Best Cotton Tee On The Market

Jeans always get front and center when it comes to icons of American style. But everyone knows the silent star is really the T-shirt. Where would James Dean, Marlon Brando, or Michael Jackson have been without the super simple, super sexy white t-shirt? There are several elements that elevate the standard tee: color, graphics, fit and, most importantly, fabric. The latter is what makes Market tees so amazing. The recently debuted line believes in simplicity. So they limit their collection to a variety of plain, cotton t-shirts that still manage to be infinitely comfortable and sexy. Drew Barrymore, Blake Lively and Lindsay Lohan have all been snapped while wearing them. What drives them to the brand is what will make you fall in love, too: buttery fabrics, rainbow colors, and the perfect fit. We got to test-run these tees and got more compliments than we can count. They’re perfect paired with jeans and sneakers or a chic mini-skirt and heels — and the prices are equally attractive at $24 to $35. Check out their latest styles and colors and find out where to buy online. Keep reading »

Amber Valletta Rocks Low End Clothes In High Fashion Shoot

This is what we are talking about: high fashion looks we can actually afford on a low budget. For their September 2009 issue, V Magazine featured super model turned actress Amber Valletta in a nine page spread titled, “Amber’s Next Act.” The Arizona born beauty is starring in the upcoming sci-fi flick, Gamer with Gerard Butler. Maybe to contrast with what will likely be a very techy film, the stylist Clare Richardson, gave Valletta a very simple, striped down (literally), and bare look. With the exception of a black poufy Dolce & Gabbana, just about every other outfit in the shoot was from Levi’s, H&M, Gap and Armani Exchange.

Murdered Model’s Mother And Ex-Boyfriend Appear On “Today”

After alleged murderer and former “Megan Wants A Millionaire” contestant Ryan Jenkins was found hanging from a coat rack in a Vancouver motel room yesterday, the mother and ex-boyfriend of Jasmine Fiore, the woman he allegedly murdered, sat down on the “Today Show” to talk about this crazy mess. The ex, Robert Hasman, claims he didn’t know about Ryan, but said he’d been exchanging intimate messages and emails with Jasmine. In their last text, Jasmine supposedly told him she was coming to Las Vegas so the two could reunite. Keep reading »

Claire Danes Revamps For BlackBook September Cover

Here’s a peek at Claire Danes’ risqué cover for September’s BlackBook. Not since “Romeo and Juliet” have we been this impressed with Danes. She’ll always be thought of as the innocent and innocuous type thanks to growing up as the star of “My So-Called Life.” Maybe she wanted to do something a bit more sexy and dangerous, considering she’s about to give up single life with her marriage to Hugh Dancy next month. So for once, Claire Danes plays the bitch in a super-hot photo shoot featuring dominatrix-like boots and jackets as well as busty blazers. The best shot: Danes in bold fishnets overlooking the Manhattan landscape. Check out a few more images after the jump! [BlackBook] Keep reading »

Discussing Kim Zolciak’s Wig Ad Nauseum

Awkward. In this random clip, Bravo’s Andy Cohen and Jeff Lewis of “Flipping Out” talk to Kim Zolciak of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” about her wig. The best moment: when Andy leans in close to try to determine where her real hair ends and the wig begins, and looks kind of like a monkey checking a buddy for ticks. Another highlight: Jeff calling her wig a “Halloween mask,” and Kim getting a bit testy. Apparently, for all of us dying to see what she looks like sans Barbie hair, she often goes wigless at the beach. I can already hear the sound of the paparazzi setting up their long-range cameras now.

Six Rules For Being Friends With An Ex

So you’ve made it through the horrifying breakup with someone you cared about … now what? To be friends or not to be friends, that is the question. Most of the time I like to make a nice clean break adhering to a “no contact” and “no getting back together” policy. I’ve learned from experience that this is a necessary move for me to heal my ailing heart and move on. In time, I am usually content to be “acquaintances with history,” exchanging an email every once in a while or having friendly drinks with the exes that I still respect. But that’s only after time has passed and I’ve removed the rose-colored glasses that I used to gaze at him through. And, of course, there are the guys that I know I won’t ever see or speak with ever again … those that have committed offenses of the heart too heinous to be forgiven in this lifetime. But it’s not always so black and white. Some people are worth keeping in your life. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: The Miss Universe Pageant And Plastic Surgery

  • How many of last night’s Miss Universe contestants aren’t exactly natural beauties? One long-time pageant judge estimated that 30 percent of Miss Universe wannabes have had work done prior to the competition. The most ick-worthy quote from Fox’s article: “A source close to the Donald Trump-owned Miss Universe Organization [says] that not only is elective [plastic] surgery allowed, but it is quietly encouraged.” [Fox News] — Somewhere, beauty queen Carrie Prejean, whose boobs were bought and paid for by the Miss California Organization, is smiling.

Sounds amazing, but we’ll believe it when we see it! Keep reading »

    For The Week Of August 24-30, 2009

    Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

    Confusion will make you dizzy, as everyone and their grandmother will spew opinions about your love life. Friends, your subconscious, your neighbors, and even the IT guy at your office will say things that’ll sound significant. However, you don’t have to make a decision right away; so don’t freak yourself out more than necessary. If he can’t wait, he’s not worth it.

    Libra (September 23 – October 22)

    So yeah, you’re social. You like going out, meeting people and, yes, you like to talk. The problem with that this week is your exaggerated words might come back to haunt you. Be prudent with what info you share with not-so-close acquaintances. Sure, shock-value confessions will give you the spotlight, but don’t risk that price to pay. It won’t be worth it.

    Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

    Your patience finally comes to a head, as you get answers you’ve waited ages on. You’ll discover whether your insane optimism is truly a blessing or a curse. Yes, what actually occurs over this week will depend on the tracks you’ve laid in the past. So, if it goes swimmingly, know there is a method to your madness. Otherwise, back to the drawing board and, perhaps, a shrink.

    Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

    Love won’t be coming to you on a silver platter right now, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t treats to be had. This week it’s all about working it in a new style and with a new agenda. Ask around, call up different friends, and venture off into uncharted territories. The more cunning and adventurous you are, the more surprising the finale will be.

    Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

    Take the plunge in a big way, like book a foreign adventure with your current boo! Testing your commitment is a big bonus now, as it seems you both have been chomping at the bit to see some indication that there is hope for a future together. There’s nothing like being thrown into the exotic unknown to see how your team work will survive.

    Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

    An intense feeling of love and admiration will instantly wash over you for the one you’re with or the one you want to be with — but don’t let that haze blind you into believing that person can walk on water. Seriously, a happy relationship isn’t always about some crazy unconditional state of mind. It’s about respect. Until you master that, stop making more promises than necessary.

    Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

    To get an accurate trajectory of your relationship, look to the details — and not with compassion. Sure, he might get the big things right, as in remembering your birthday and being kind to your friends, but if he’s not good with the little things, this is your time to pinch him a little harder to get maximum perfection. A little gentle nudging will bring results.

    Aries (March 21 – April 19)

    As the sign of war, you love a good fight, but this week it can go all-out ugly. So be careful about the battles you choose and how you go about trying to prove your points. A little honey will go a lot farther than vinegar. If you want to actually get some tension-releasing sex out of this deal, it’ll mean throwing in a bit of diplomacy with your snarkiness.

    Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

    Be ready to jump over obstacles and get creative when it comes to getting the attention of that hot someone you’ve been sweating. This isn’t the time for synchronicity to work in a linear manner and the stakes will be high, so think fast and move faster. The good news is that if you do solve this riddle, your rewards will be plenty.

    Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

    No matter how sweet the intentions you share with your baby, it doesn’t always mean you’ll see eye-to-eye on everything. Tastes and experiences will differ from moment to moment and it’ll be up to you to determine if you can negotiate around the situation. Of course, not all journeys will bring back gold. That’s just the way the ball bounces.

    Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

    Hurry up and say what’s on your mind. You have no more time to lose – get off the fence! If you want to step up to the plate and take responsibilities for your emotions, it’ll mean being courageous enough to claim your prize. Not to say you have to have your whole plan worked out, but at least get the materials to build your dream life.

    Leo (July 23 – August 22)

    Batting your eyes and dropping subtle hints is all you have to do to take that next step. If you try to do anything more, you will only regret you’ve made such grand efforts. In this phase of gaining dominance, you only have to be smart and efficient with how you express yourself. A little will go long enough.
