London needs little introduction. Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, high tea at four o’ clock: even on the beaten tourist circuit, this city is a charmer. But it’s also a high-energy international center that manages to be old-world classy and cutting-edge trendy all at the same time. English-speaking and cute accents… how can you go wrong? What’s on in Londontown, after the jump… Keep reading »
Last week I wrote a blog post about the 10 Ways To Survive The First Week Of Heartbreak. Just to be clear, these tips referenced the things that helped me personally during that rough week and certainly should not be taken as gospel for every single person reading The Frisky. I mean, that would be kind of unfair to those of you who are not within driving distance of an amusement park that throws a Gay Night party every year! Jokes aside, I also did not intend to imply that “popping pills” was something everyone should run out and do. In the interest of full-disclosure, I’ve been on anti-d’s (as we call ‘em) for the last year and a half (for a variety of reasons, in conjunction with talk therapy), so I didn’t just start taking them because my lame-o fiance dumped me. That said, I do know that being on them helped me get through that first week (and continue to help me get through the second and third).
The comments and emails we received that were concerned I was too flippantly recommending that the heartbroken should pop pills (truthfully, just a shout out to Jacqueline Susann!) made me think we should address the issue in depth. So, after the jump, two women in their 20′s who have taken psychiatric medication and can report on their positive and negative experiences. Keep reading »
I’m really into sleepwear and loungewear lately. I’m not sure why, but it probably has something to do with the fact that I’ve been sleeping in a tank top and boxer shorts for the last 10 years. Now I feel the need to grow up and this slip from Urban Outfitters is perfectly adult, yet whimsical. I love the tuxedo aspect and the tri-color keeps it fun. I’m not sure the underwire would be comfy to sleep in, but the slip would be really sexy to lounge around in, especially if you own a classic pair of marabou slippers.

There’s only one man who looks better than James Bond in a tux: Jack White. In the video he recorded alongside duet partner Alicia Keys — for the upcoming new Bond film (“Quantum Of Solace”) — the sonic stallion struts around in black and white with his bow-tie undone. The band leader of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs knows how to open up a guitar and his top button. Check White, Jack White, out in the video for the flick’s theme song, “Another Way To Die”. Oh yeah, and Keys looks pretty hot too.

Looks We Liked: Jerell’s Jewel Of A Dress; Leanne’s Soft Stunner
The designers had to create gowns inspired by photos taken at the New York Botanical Garden. There were a lot of tears on the runway this week, so I guess the producers decided to keep the drama flowing because the judges didn’t eliminate anyone this week. Instead, Heidi said the judges would wait until the collections were underway and would decide who goes to Bryant Park at that point. I didn’t think it was really a hard decision to make. They should have eliminated the designer that has only won one challenge on her own and who makes strikingly similar dresses each episode — Kenley! Keep reading »

“I am an 18-year old college student. I have been dating an amazing guy who is nine months older than me for over two years. He is also in college, but we go to different universities. We have been having sex since I was 17 and the only problem has been my mother, who has disapproved. I thought that when I was in college she would leave me alone. realize that I am an adult, and give me some freedom. But no. When I recently told her that I had spent the night with my boyfriend, she got mad and said that I should have asked her. She doesn’t know that we have sex (after two years, she could hardly assume two hormonal teenagers would behave like saints), but how can I tell her to back off and that I am not her little innocent girl anymore?” — Bird Who’s Left The Nest, via email Keep reading »
