Candles have pros (flattering light, romantic) and cons (fire hazard, wax everywhere), and OXO’s Candela line combines the best of candles without the cons. The new Luau style is a portable lantern that stays lit up to 10 hours, can be dimmed, and never needs batteries. And since it doesn’t get hot, you don’t have to worry about your sheets catching on fire, unless you’re just that good. [$199.99, OXO.com] Keep reading »

Check out our picks for Hollywood’s fashionable young spawns. Keep reading »
Designs We Hated [From Left} Haven’t we seen Stella’s rock-and-roll look before in, like, every rock video from the ’90s?; Keith’s toilet paper in a windstorm dress–should have used gray fabric, bud; Jennifer’s matronly Forever 21 creation.
On Wednesday’s episode of Project Runway the designers were challenged to use New York City as their muse for a nighttime look. And Tim Gunn took them to Mood Fabric to shop for themselves, finally. This challenge like the first one is not original. It’s was done in a previous season. The designers were whisked-off in true tourist fashion on a double-decker bus to various neighborhoods in Manhattan, where they photographed their inspiration. Keep reading »
Excluding the insane $225 price tag, we think this wifebeater with garter clips is pretty fantastic. It’s the perfect mix of something to wear in the bedroom that’s sexy, but also kind of tough. But then again, there must be a way to DIY this with a Hanes tank-top and some clips you can buy at a fabric store. [ShopBop.com] Keep reading »
The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota may not be the first place you’d consider to vacay — after all, isn’t the cold basically unbearable for most of the year? Yes — but you know what they say about people who are forced to hibernate inside for nine months out of the year — when the sunshine finally starts to melt the snow off the trees, they come out to play and party with the best of them. That’s why the end of August is one of the best times to visit and coincidentally it’s also the time of year when the Minnesota State Fair is in full effect. Because who doesn’t love a pickle on a stick, don’t cha know?

By now you’ve probably heard that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have asked Bono to be godfather to their twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline. And that Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz are considering John Mayer for godfather of their unborn child. I’ve never really thought about famous godparents probably because I’ve never really had a great relationship with my own godparents, except for my late Uncle Eddie. However, when this news broke, we at The Frisky decided to research other famous godparents and realized some of these relationships are really surprising. Keep reading »
So You Think You Can Dance is my most favorite summer show (well, except maybe I like it a litttttle less than Big Brother because I appreciate that BB is on three times a week and I am a TV addict) and I have been insanely impressed with the talent this season. On last night’s episode, Mark and Chelsea were eliminated, leaving the final four below to perform and compete in next week’s finale. So who do you want to win?

I get that this is to prevent the paps from getting a good picture, but one of my biggest pet peeves is when my fiance walks faster than I do. It’s rude. [New York City, 8/1/08] Keep reading »
Every reality show has a breakout star — Lo or Whitney on The Hills, Nicole Richie on The Simple Life, etc. — but usually that star has a fall from grace, once everyone has tired of his or her eccentricities. Just look at Christian Siriano — even we’re sick of saying “fierce” all the tme. But this is not the case with fellow Project Runway star Tim Gunn. I don’t think anyone expected Tim to become the show’s most beloved cast member, least of all Tim, but five seasons in, how is it that we still love him so freaking much?! Check out the clip from Wednesday’s episode above. We want to smack Blayne, but Tim is just adorable as always. He’s so stylish and handsome and cultured, yet he reminds me so much of my grandma when he says, “Holla atcha boy!” Keep reading »
