These itty-bitty oxidized-silver bullet studs are perfectly feminine and edgy at the same time. It can be difficult to find an accessory that truly goes with everything, but these do the trick. They’ll balance out the frilliness of a girlie dress, and they’ll look just as good with an over-sized sweater, leggings, and bad ass boots. You’ll never want to take them out.

Romance and sex no longer really automatically go hand-in-hand. We have known this for years now, yet some of us still get mixed up. Sex without romance can be liberating, fun, and carefree. Romance is something entirely different. It’s an enhancer for the heart, mind, and soul. Since these two words can mean entirely separate things, that now means there are two different kinds of dry spells: one for the body and one for the mind.

The whole world seems to know that Cassie is Diddy’s jump off, a casual sex partner. Or to use more current slang, she’s his buss it baby (refer to definition #3). The sad thing is she doesn’t realize this and continues to let Puff (I hate the name Diddy) disrespect and exploit her in his music, in print ads and, even, in her own song. More on just how pitiful their relationship is after the jump. Keep reading »
They said it wouldn’t last…and it didn’t. Another “Bachelorette” pairing bit the dust this week, as Jesse Csincsak announced on the couple’s website that he and DeAnna Pappas had split, via YouTube video. Warning: It is kind of painful to watch. It seems DeAnna told Jesse that she loves him but isn’t “in love” with him. CLICHE ALERT! Apparently, “The Bachelorette” would only be physically affectionate with Jesse when the cameras were pointed at them, which seems like a pretty bad sign to me. Anyway, does this mean that DeAnnaAndJesse.com is going to be no more? [People] Keep reading »
When we first heard about the upcoming movie “Twilight,” we were interested mainly because Robert Pattinson stars in it, and he’s extremely good looking. We had never read any of the books or heard of author Stephenie Meyer. And then we started seeing trailers for the movie, and we were even more intrigued. Now, Amelia, Annika, and I have decided to read Twilight before we see the movie, which comes out Nov. 21, and we’re starting today. There are just two-and-a-half weeks before the movie hits theaters, and the book has 498 pages, but we think it can be done, and we want you to join us! For next Wednesday, we’re reading the first 12 chapters. Come visit The Frisky on Nov. 12 to discuss it, whether you’re reading it for the first time or the seventh. Keep reading »
Last night was absolutely historical and I’m not going to hide my glee. Americans came out in record numbers and voted for a significant change in the White House and in Washington, with quite a few states (Ohio and Florida among them) going blue over their traditional red. As Barack Obama said last night, “That is the true genius of America — that America can change. Our union can be perfected. And what we have already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow.” Unfortunately, while there’s much to proud of today, regardless of whether you voted for Obama, there’s also a few disappointments. It appears that all but one of the gay marriage bans have passed, including, probably, Proposition 8 in California. Really America? We’re still that scared of gay people eating wedding cake? Really?

So, let’s say your political candidate of choice lost last night…or years ago. If you’re driving a vintage Volvo that supports Mondale/Ferraro or you’re too distraught to cover up the McCain/Palin sticker on the back of your Durango with one that says MY OTHER CAR IS A ZAMBONI (I’m looking at you, hockey moms), here’s how to remove it completely. Because if ever there was a time for change, it’s now.
