Water: Banzai Skimboard Surfer
When you take a Slip ‘n’ Slide, juice up its waterflow, and chuck in a 30-inch wood skimboard, you get a whole new arena in which to display the lack of coordination that caused the circus to run away without you. Pick up the Surfer at WalMart.com. Keep reading »

In honor of Independence Day, we asked around for the best things about being single and independent. Here’s the top ten!
10. HOOKING UP
“Kissing total strangers when you’re out at bars or on dance floors. No names, no numbers exchanged, just random frenching.” — Sonia

To properly celebrate our nation’s birth, you must do these three things tomorrow: grill food, watch fireworks, and wear something (anything) that involves stars or stripes. We’re here to help you with the third. Now, you have a couple options. You can go all out and wear only an American flag draped around your body, or you can be a little more subtle, and put on something you already own — or needed an excuse to run out and buy today. While you’re at it, don’t forget to pick up a pack of sparklers. Keep reading »
Dr. Lauri Romanzi, a gynecologist who performs pelvic reconstruction surgery, will open the first spa dedicated to strengthening and grooming a woman’s genitals in Manhattan this month. Taking a cue from the creation of storefront dental spas, like BriteSmile, Dr. Romanzi developed her own concept of pelvic fitness. PHIT — short for pelvic health integrated techniques — will help women get healthy from the inside out with the use of Kegel exercises and laser treatments. We’re all for women taking care of their junk, but you can strengthen their vaginal muscles with products sold at adult stores, like Tighten Up or Ben Wa balls, for a lot cheaper than PHIT’s $150 signature gynecological exam.

In the words of the great Will Smith, “Welcome to Miami…” where people really do party “all night on the beach ‘til the break of dawn.” As the sun gloriously beats down, the streets are lined with so many al fresco diners and strolling locals that you start to wonder if anyone actually works in this town. But really, how can they? With its tropical climate, gorgeous inhabitants, fiery cuisine and – Will would be amiss if we didn’t mention them – white-sand beaches, it’s no wonder why Miami clocks in as America’s sexiest city. So grab your sunscreen (extra SPF here!) and hang on while The Frisky shows you how to get a taste of the real Miami heat with these sizzlin’ South Florida hot spots.

Going to summer camp was one of the best things about being a kid. You got to make cool bracelets, learn how to canoe, and maybe even see shooting stars streak across the sky. But these days, there are new camps that just don’t sound as fun. The Wall Street Journal has an article in today’s paper about financial camps, where kids learn about investing and becoming entrepreneurs. One of these camps, Camp Millionaire in Santa Barbara, CA, is just for girls ages 10 to 15. While it’s nice that there’s an all-female place for young women to learn about being responsible with money, I don’t think I would have wanted to spend my summer learning how to become a millionaire at that age.
