Did the hem on your skirt come undone? Rip a hole in your quilt by accident? Now a crafty girl like you can save the day without lugging a big ol’ heavy sewing machine out of the closet. Who really has extra space in her apartment to set up a sewing machine, anyway? Not us! (And if you do have the space, we totally hate you.) But with a Smartek cordless sewing machine, you can finish easy projects with no hassle at all! It has four metal bobbins with thread, two speeds, three machine needles, one threader and a spindle. All it takes is four AA batteries and a shoebox-sized amount of storage space. Sew adorable!

After my recent breakup, 95 percent of the comments that people have made to me have been loving, supportive and wonderful.
And then there were the ones that were not. Well-meaning? Sure. But not helpful.
One person, for instance, called my Asian ex-boyfriend a “fortune cookie-roller.” Racism? Not helpful. One of my girl friends read his Facebook page and proceeded to tell me all the books and movies he likes that signify he’s a loser. Dissing the man I (still) love? Not helpful.
After the jump, 11 more things you should think twice, and then three times, about saying to a woman who has just been dumped. Keep reading »
At this point, I would not be surprised to discover that I have wine running through my veins rather than blood. It has been my drink of choice for years, but my taste level has thankfully become more discerning — no more Two Buck Chuck or Yellowtail Shiraz, and definitely no Franzia. For people who are really serious about wine, trying new blends is a bit of a sport or a hobby, the way shopping can be for the fashion obsessed. Unfortunately, your local wine shop probably doesn’t get too many new things on a regular basis, and even when they do, they’re probably charging up the yin-yang for anything that’s especially premium. That’s why Lot18.com is any wino’s wet dream. Shopping online for wine is nothing new, but Lot18.com uses the online sample sale model of fashion sites like Gilt and Rue La La, offering members access to amazing wines at much lower prices than what you’d pay in stores. Each sale lasts for only a limited time, but they happen often; it’s like walking into your favorite boutique and discovering there’s a whole new rack of clothes in the sale section. Can you tell I’m obsessed? Currently, I am coveting the 2005 Star Lane Cabernet Sauvignon. We’re going to have a great time together as soon as this pesky sabbatical is over. But enough about me — Lot18.com is generously offering the first 1000 Frisky readers who register with the site a $10 credit towards their first purchase. Just click here, register, and shop away. Cheers! [Lot18.com: $10 Credit for Frisky Readers!] Keep reading »

Elle dished all the deets to the gossip rag about how skeezy Luke Worrall approached her in a club, the pair hooked up in hotel rooms, and Kelly Osbourne eventually reached out to her over Facebook. That’s one messy split. Keep reading »
It’s not often that you see an authentic love story on reality television. Which is what makes Leah Messer and Corey Simms of “Teen Mom 2” so freaking touching. Their story isn’t the traditional girl-meets-boy tale. Nope, their saga goes more like this: Girl meets boy. Boy breaks up with girl after three years. On the rebound, girl asks another boy to prom. She ends up getting pregnant—with twins—after knowing him only a month. Girl and boy decide to raise baby girls together.
Leah’s episode of “16 and Pregnant” was a multiple tissue affair. Keep reading »
