Magic Copper Pillow Gets Rid Of Wrinkles!…Possibly

Usually, when I write about a beauty product I know whether I am hailing it as the greatest thing since sliced bread or as a WTF? With the copper-infused pillow cover, well, I just don’t know. Apparently you can get rid of wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet by sleeping on a copper-threaded pillow.

According to the peeps at Cupron, who make the copper infused pillow (as well as copper infused gloves and eye masks), copper has been used since ancient Egyptian times for its “antimicrobial properties.” How this translates to less wrinkles, I have no idea, but Cupron’s own clinical trials have shown that people who use the pillow are more likely to see a reduction in them.

Bottom line: it might not work, but if you need a new pillow anyway you might as well try and be a beauty pioneer. [$37.99, Cupron Cosmetic Skin Appearance-Enhancing Satin Pillowcase,CupronSales.com] Keep reading »

I Wanna Dress Like: Fran Fine From “The Nanny”

Fran Fine (Fran Drescher) from “The Nanny” was all about bold prints, lot’s of leg, Chanel-inspired clothes and accessories, and showing off her figure. She is, after all, “the lady in red when everybody else is wearing tan.” We wouldn’t want you to adopt every look from the ’90s, but we do think that some of Nanny Fine’s dressing principles could translate for summer 2009 — just save the black hose for winter.

Gallery: Reality Television’s Most Notorious Quitters

They quit, they didn’t quit, they quit, they didn’t quit… That was all I heard last week about Heidi and Spencer’s bout on “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.” Well this week’s first episode finally brought closure—they’re gone for real after Heidi got some kind of stomach bug and vomited like 15 times in 24 hours. With them gone, will anyone watch the show? Heidi’s sister Holly will be replacing them, but please, she’s about as interesting as paint thinner. [Or Lauren Conrad -- zing! -- Editor] [MTV]

Now that the gruesome twosome is dunzo, let’s take a look back at other reality television favorites who left their shows in a dramatic clap of thunder.

Online Lingerie Sale Listings

We love fancy undies here at The Frisky, but when it comes to a decision between some good ‘ol cotton briefs for $10 and a lacy, do-me-now pair totally taking advantage of our wallets for $100, granny panties sometimes win. But in a world where pretty much everything is on sale these days, pretty panties are no exception. A few websites are particularly dedicated to getting you laid for less. Check out their offerings after the jump. Keep reading »

Slain Abortion Provider Dr. Tiller’s Clinic Closed Permanently

The Wichita clinic formerly run by Dr. George Tiller, who was murdered by anti-choice crusader Scott Roeder on May 31, has closed permanently. As a result, the closest abortion provider for Tiller’s patients will be a three hour drive both ways to Overland Park. It is unclear if that clinic, the Center For Women’s Health, can provide late-term third-trimester abortions like Tiller’s did.

Good job, crazies. [Wichita Eagle] Keep reading »

Wedding Chapels: The Next Frontier In Pop-Up Shops

Pop-up shops have been all the rage the last few years, with brands from Target to Chanel setting up temporary storefronts. Thanks to the recession, housing developers are even hosting shopping events in empty apartments, hoping to make a buck off homes that aren’t selling. Now, in New York City, two event spaces are being transformed into “pop-up wedding” venues this summer. Keep reading »

Last Night’s Webby Award Acceptance Speeches Were All 5 Words or Less

Last night, techies from all corners of the World Wide Web gathered at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City for the 13th annual Webby Awards. The Webby Awards are like the Oscars of the Internet, honoring websites, advertisers, videos, and films in more than 70 categories. While the interwebs are pretty cool and all, what makes the Webby Awards super special is that winners are limited to acceptance speeches of five words or less, making them like truncated haikus. After the jump, our favorite five word speeches from last night. Keep reading »
