Yes, Wine Is On Your Diet

Wait. I hate the word “diet.” Let me try this again. Wine can be a happy part of your daily calorie intake if you choose for it to be. Everything is about moderation and alcohol is no exception. Just to be sure I’m not overdoing it on my wine, I’ll practice alcohol portion control with…

The Final Frontier In Bath Accessories

Those who know me best — or those who read The Frisky with any regularity — know that I love bath time. I am always looking to take my bubble-filled soaks up a notch, which is why I gasped with excitement when I came across this Spa Bath Planetarium gizmo. It’s like these geniuses knew…

Blow Other Necklaces Out Of The Water

I always wanted a really bitchin’ lifeguard whistle just for personal use. Hey, you! Get out my seat! Lady, put down the last cupcake! Who cares if I lose friends and alienate people with all the power and authority I’ve conferred? C. Wonder’s got a cute 14K-gold plated whistle that will be just the thing…

The Thrill Of Bill (Murray)

Bill Murray has had one hell of a strange career. From “Caddyshack” to his current role as de facto Wes Anderson man muse, Murray’s kept us laughing with his quick wit and charm. It’s only fitting that Murray should be idolized in a way befitting his wacky personality: With the Thrill Murray Coloring Book. The…

Dive Into This Beautiful Photograph

I’m drawn to art that evokes a strong emotional reaction, and when I look at this beautifully simple picture, a feeling of calmness and freedom washes over me. I’d love to hang this in my office and look into those endless ripples of water whenever I get stressed out. [$60 for 11″ x 14″ print,…

Make Germs Magically Disappear

Hello, fellow germaphobes. I have something for us. Are you sitting down? OK. I present you with a portable, sanitizing wand, which uses light technology to eliminate viruses, bacterias and certain allergens on hard surfaces. So basically, that makes it a magic wand. It fits in your purse or bag so you can have it…

Keep Calm, It’s Just A Boo-Boo

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a new ripped cuticle or thumbtack stab every day. If you’re going to be a walking gore-fest, you may as well wear a Band-Aid more chic than those “Dora The Explorer” ones you found at CVS. Well, “chic” may not be the right word. But these Urban Outfitter…

A Shoe With Curve Appeal

I’ve had my eye on these Rachel Comey wooden wedge sandals for a hot minute. I love the subtle curve of the wooden wedge and the unexpected grey suede and leather color combo. But they’re like, prohibitively expensive. Even on sale, the shoes cost a pretty penny, which is why I’ll have to continue to…

A Polish Color To End All Polish Colors

Summertime is all about the colors on your nails and, girl, have I got the color for you: Anardana, from the Thakoon for NARS collaboration. Gorgeous, right?  This color is professional enough for work, sexy enough for a night of dancing under the stars, and girly enough for a picnic in the park. But if…

Feel The Pull Of Gorgeous Gemstone Magnets

This gorgeous collection of gemstones right here? They’re all magnets, which means you can bring some of nature’s colorful splendor into your home, and, specifically, stick it onto your refrigerator. That hot pink agate up at the top is just begging to display this week’s grocery list, don’t you think? [$36 for set of 8,…

Hold Your Bananas’ Freshness Hostage

I am one of those people who likes my bananas without brown spots. The most annoying things about my favorite fruit is how quickly they ripen (and how they make everything in their general vicinity smell like banana). And, as you may remember from the Chiquita Banana song, bananas like the climate of the very,

But I Really Wanted To Be A Graphic Novelist

Summer is the perfect time to kick back with a good book and no, you don’t have to read Crime And Punishment. I prefer a good graphic novel and I’m in luck: But I Really Wanted To Be An Anthropologist by French illustrator Margaux Motin was just published in English. Like me, you’ll lust after…

A Lamp That’s The Cat’s Meow

Is there anything more sad/cute than a dog or cat with a cone stuck on its head? I think not, which is why I love this lamp from Howkapow, which is the shape of a little doggie–or kitty with a short tail–with a head cone on. They’ve also got a cat lamp, which features a…

Let The Sun Shine In (On Your Skin)

Finding the right bronzing powder for your skin tone can be a bit of a trick. Too dark, and you look Snooki-fied, too light, and it won’t show up at all. That’s why I am falling all over myself for Fresh’s “Here Comes The Sun” face palette. The palette actually includes two different shades of…

Want To Get Organized? Just Stay On The Grid

Whenever I go to my friend Henry’s house, he always pulls out some new tech toy or accessory that both confuses me and makes me want to run to the Apple store and drop a few hundred bucks. Last time I was over his new toy was decidedly low tech, but just as impressive: the…

Some Lick It Hot

As far as I’m concerned, the hotter the better when it comes to anything edible. I take green Tabasco on my eggs, cayenne chili powder on my veggies, chili flakes on my pizza, Sriracha on just about everything else — all applied liberally. Sometimes, at restaurants, I ask for my own bottle of hot sauce.

The Ultimate Guide To Rock ‘N’ Roll

Former Frisky columnist Judy McGuire has exchanged her first love (dispensing hilarious dating advice) for her second (rock ‘n’ roll) with her new book, The Official Book of Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n’ Roll Lists. But as the title promises, there’s plenty of salaciousness to go around. McGuire got plenty of music’s greatest — and greatest fans — to dish…

Piranha Purses Go With Everything

I’m usually drawn to classic bag shapes: the satchel, the tote, the messenger, the piranha. Yep, you read that right. The quilted pirhana is totally a classic in its own right. [$78, ASOS]…

Cry Me A Seasoning

If you really want to add feeling and flavor to your meals, you’ll want to season with Salt Made From Tears. The collection of artesian salts, made with real human tears, are boiled, crystallized, harvested by hand and rinsed into brine. But not every kind of tear tastes the same on the palate. It really…

Shea Butter That Scrubs The Bumps Away

My skin is perpetually dry and bumpy. My mom would blame it on my veganism, but I blame it on living in the northeast and dealing with stupid and unpredictable weather patterns. We’re probably both right! My skin is always kind of ashy, and also red and I get tons of ingrown hairs on my…
