Absolute Beginners: Quitters Win

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / March 6, 2015
Hi there! Welcome to Absolute Beginners, our new fitness column. I’d tell you to sit down and make yourself comfortable, but that’d really go against the whole modus operandi of what I’m trying to do, here. Instead, I don’t know, go do some jumping jacks, then come back and read this. So, I write about… More »

Travel Porn: Oahu’s Famous Haʻikū Stairs Are Dying A Slow Death

By: Claire Hannum / March 5, 2015
The hiking trail known as the Stairway to Heaven on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, also called the Haʻikū Stairs, is just that: a stairway to heaven on earth. I resent the word "breathtaking" (it's so sorely abused), but the vision of this trail really does warrant that label. It looks like some tropical fever dream, the most… More »

Baby Goats Need Your Old Winter Sweaters ASAP!

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / March 5, 2015
I love goats. And if I'm being honest, I love baby goats even more. And if I'm being really, really honest, I love baby goats in sweaters the very most. And I can only imagine how much I would love a baby goat in a sweater that I once owned. See,… More »

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / March 5, 2015
Yesterday, we published the first part of my interview with tattoo artist Speck Osterhout at Chicago’s Tattoo Candy, a shop I cannot say too many good things about.

Beauty Test Drive: Bioré Charcoal Pore Strips, A Facial Cleanser For Drug Addicts

By: Beejoli Shah / March 5, 2015
The best free samples in women's magazines always do two things. 1) Defy the laws of physics and cosmetic packaging to fit flatly into an insert, and 2) never, ever work. Bioré's Charcoal pore strips were no different. A copy of Seventeen showed up at The Frisky offices last week and as I was complaining about the… More »

Are floral prints not the best thing ever when you're in a shitty mood? The bright colors! The cheerful vibes! The promise of spring and life!

Thank Us Later: Danskin Supplex Leggings Are The Only Pants You’ll Ever Need

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / March 4, 2015
You know what sucks? Pants. Pants suck. Skirts also suck. Dresses can be OK, but usually they suck. If I could wear cotton track shorts all the time and not look like a total freak, I would. My goal, when dressing, is to basically have nothing on my legs. Barring the ability to do that… More »

Fellow shorties, rejoice! Reformation, an eco-friendly company based in LA, has launched a petites collection.

Everything You Wanted To Know About Tattooing But Were Too Afraid To Ask: A Q&A With Tattoo Candy’s Speck Osterhout (Part 1!)

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / March 4, 2015
I always felt like there was a veil of mystery over tattooing and the industry and the people who do tattoos, regardless of the proliferation of tattooing on reality TV. I got my first tattoo the day I turned 18, a few months before Miami Ink premiered, and had been obsessed with tattoo culture since… More »

25 Free Or Cheap Activities To Get You Through The Rest Of Winter

By: Claire Hannum / March 4, 2015
It's March, and winter has gone stale. Here we all sit, rotting away in front of space heaters, our laundry baskets overflowing with those thick slush-proof socks we're cycling through so fast, nestled in front of glowing screens in bed while entertaining the kinds of existential thoughts that only come out to play when its dark out --… More »

Frisky Q&A: Rich Bitch Writer Nicole Lapin On Personal Finance For Modern Women

By: Claire Hannum / March 3, 2015
Like most Americans, I learned absolutely nothing about money in school (save for that time we had to buy and trade fake Apple stock in the sixth grade), so I've made my fair share of half-assed attempts at reading personal finance books, most of which I retained nothing from. When I opened Rich Bitch, however, it wa… More »

I Want To Go To There: Lake Superior’s Otherworldy Ice Caves

By: Claire Hannum / March 2, 2015
Over the weekend, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore ice caves in northern Wisconsin opened to guests for the first time this year - an increasingly rare treat as climate change alters temperature patterns. Before last year, the ice caves hadn't been open since the winter of 2009! The 12-mile stretch of caves, made of sandstone… More »

The Only Interesting Thing About DressGate Is That Humans Can’t Necessarily See Blue

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / March 2, 2015
No matter how many scientific explanations I read about THE DRESS last Friday, nothing made it feel any less inexplicable or mystifying -  until I read about how human beings may not necessarily be able to see blue on our own. Blue might be a sort of psychological phenomenon. That has put that ugly-a… More »

Oh fashion industry, you never learn, do you? This weekend during his Milan Fashion Week presentation, Italian designer Claudio Cutugno presented his his all-black collection -- including the models donning glittery blackface. Ew. Why couldn't this just be about all black clothes, man? Cutugno says he was inspired by an artist and claims that he "didn't… More »

I love wearing polka dots, and most of the time I could care less about how loud they look because I just want to look cheerful, dammit.
