It’s a familiar occurrence in the life of any eco-conscious wine enthusiast: while putting out your glass recycling, you look down at the 10 bags overflowing with wine bottles and think, “Dear God, my neighbors are going to think I’m a fall-down drunk.” The solution to this embarrassing problem? Don’t stop drinking or recycling. Just use all those wine bottles and corks to make cool crafts! Click through for 10 DIY ideas for winos.
The champagne toast is one of my favorite customs. I’m all about celebrating happy moments with sparkly wine, so hey, what’s not to love? But lately I’ve been thinking that the traditional requirements for what constitutes a champagne-worthy moment are way too predictable (not to mention way too rare). Major milestones like engagements, weddings, buying a house, having a baby, or getting a promotion certainly deserve a toast, but what about the less obvious occasions that may or may not be life-changing, but sure as hell feel like it at the time? Things like paying off your credit card debt, adopting a pet, or finding out you’re STD free. I’ll drink to all that! Here are 30 oft-overlooked life moments that totally deserve a glass of bubbly, AKA 30 reasons we should all be joyously drinking champagne all the time… Keep reading »
The only thing better than a good cup of tea is a good cup of tea that makes you laugh. Don’t think that exists? You’re wrong. The next time you’re entertaining guests or in the mood to sip on some loose leaf, consider one of these clever infusers to stir things up a bit. If you’re serving a group, bring them all out! You’ll be the talk of the tea party.
Ever see four versions of the same lip color and wonder WTF is the difference? Welcome to my world. I started wearing bold lip colors about a year ago and I find myself at a loss when offered too many options. Luckily I work at The Frisky and get to Beauty Test Drive several colors without breaking the bank. Topshop sent me two bright orangey lip colors to test out — but how were they different and which did I prefer? Let’s find out… Keep reading »
I’m sure you’ve sensed a bit of an ominous cloud settling over your part of the closet. Perhaps you’ve seen the scraps of denim littering the floor of my bedroom. Or maybe you’ve noticed that your comrades are starting to return to the jean pile as mere shadows of their former selves — half the garments they once were?
Well, I’m sorry to say your intuition is right. Your days are most definitely numbered. You won’t be long for long. Because it’s finally warm outside, which means my cutoffs obsession has begun. None of my full-length jeans are safe. You’ve got another week, maybe two, tops. And then? Snip, snip. Keep reading »
I’m about to tell you about a recipe for enchiladas that is so good, I forgot to take a picture of it before the casserole dish was completely empty. Seriously, I ate it all (well, my mom and brother helped) and then I was like, “I can’t wait to share this recipe with The Frisky’s readers! Lemme grab my iPhone and take a — OH. Oops.” So the picture above? Not the enchiladas I made, but enchiladas someone else made that look a lot like the enchiladas I made. Anyway, whatever, it’s not like you’re framing the picture — you’re making the recipe yourself and scarfing it down before you can document it on film too, right? Let’s proceed! Keep reading »
I was halfway done composing this Style Stealer of Diane Kruger’s Coachella outfit when I said, “Heeeeyyy wait a minute! Is that adorable black skater skirt she’s wearing actually SHORTS?!” After examining a close-up of Diane’s crotch area from different angles in Photoshop (the things we do for accuracy around here), I concluded that they were indeed high-waisted culottes. Phew. Crisis averted. If you’re digging her cool crop top + culottes ensemble, read on to get all the pieces for yourself (all for $100 or less!)… Keep reading »
Pervtographer Terry Richardson is (allegedly) at it again! Yesterday, model Emma Appleton (right) posted the above screenshot (left) of a Facebook message she received from Richardson, outright offering her a spot in a Vogue shoot if she agreed to fuck him. Hmm, I wonder if Anna Wintour approved of this? Appleton posted the screenshot initially to Instagram, but when Gawker and other media outlets picked up on the story, she deleted the photo and her Twitter. Richardson’s rep, who sure is being kept busy these last few months, told Buzzfeed, “This is obviously a fake. Terry did not send this text.”
Well, it’s not a text, it’s a Facebook message received via the messenger app. But also, how is it “obviously” a fake? Is there some “obvious” Photoshop giveaway that I’m missing? Is, say, Terry Richardson’s real Facebook account under a different name and therefore this isn’t him? I mean, how is it OBVIOUSLY fake? I’m just wondering. Keep reading »
I’ve seen a lot of jersey jumpsuits recently, but despite the guaranteed promise of comfort, they always look so dumpy on the hanger. It wasn’t until seeing this photo of Kate Hudson that I realized they can actually look quite chic and feminine on, especially paired with dainty jewelry and a fitted denim jacket. Pile on a little more jewelry and add heels and you can wear it out to dinner. Surprisingly versatile, no? Get the look down below… Keep reading »
