Highlights

As we wrap up Every Woman Needs month here at The Frisky, let’s talk about some of the most basic — and often overlooked — things every woman needs to be able to do in her own space. Whether you live in a teeny tiny apartment or a sprawling estate; coupled or single, here is… READ MORE »

It’s easy to underestimate the importance of eyebrows to the overall structure of your face. We all have them and they’re just sort of there, being eyebrows, naturally growing into whatever state they please. Some of us take it a step further by waxing, tweezing, or threading our brows, or maybe even all of the… READ MORE »

Walking into a bookstore can be overwhelming. And heaven forfend you go onto Amazon! There are so many books out there that it makes you wonder why they’re always saying the publishing industry is in its death throes. If you know you’re looking for a copy of The Hunger Games, then you’re golden, but lots… READ MORE »

Alright, now that you’ve told us about your great adventures and we’ve told you about ours, it’s time to discuss the next logical step: how do you turn these epic experiences into an equally epic story? I’m a writer because I love stories, but I believe every woman–whether she’s a writer or an electrical engineer,… READ MORE »

Here at The Frisky, we are of the opinion that every woman needs to have at least one wild adventure in her life. Ideally, she needs to have a bunch of them. But if adventuring is not your style, that’s OK too. One solid adventure will suffice. Who knows, maybe you’ll like going zip lining… READ MORE »

It’s important to love the space you inhabit and, if money allows, make it exactly to your liking. Arguably the most important of all rooms is the bedroom, where you sleep and luxuriate, whether you’re by yourself or with a mate. Your bedroom should be more than just a literal room in which to put… READ MORE »

Ladies, look, we think it’s high time we stop snarking on each other and start supporting one another. To that end, we’ve developed an official Frisky Girl Code of Conduct, based on what we wish our friends, coworkers and female strangers might do to help us out. The Frisky Girl Code Of Conduct is also… READ MORE »

We’re sick of all these so-called relationship experts telling ladies the way to snag a man is to keep it in your pants, er, skirt. Listen, you prisses, not only are we way too old to be  virgins, but we sure as hell are glad we’re not! Holding out for some kind of commitment only… READ MORE »

I have written before about how much I enjoy living alone. I got my own apartment shortly after my fiancé and I broke up; though I did very much enjoy cohabiting with him — having roommates in college and in my first years in NYC, not so much — I quickly discovered that living alone… READ MORE »

Earlier this week we discussed the 10 things every woman needs to throw away. Now that you’ve cut down on some clutter and finally parted ways with your high school boyfriend’s Sugar Ray t-shirt, it’s time to talk about the things that every adult woman should have in her home. We won’t cover the absolute… READ MORE »

It happens to all of us. We get caught up in the daily routine and forget to think about our needs. Not just the financial ones, but the physical, emotional, and mental ones as well. When was the last time you headed in a bold and exciting direction unsure of what the outcome would be? READ MORE »

Perfume may not be for everyone, but those of us who love it really love it. I have a hyper-sensitive sense of smell — I smell things before anyone else does, and I can often identify them instantly. I can smell a new perfume offhand and rattle off the most dominant notes in it. Many… READ MORE »

I spend an hour a week in therapy. When I’m not working through current traumas, like that woman who gave me the stink-eye at the grocery store, I am stuck firmly in the past. Yes, I lived through many scarring childhood experiences from which I thought I’d never recover. There was the time in 9th… READ MORE »

One of the perks of my job at The Frisky is I get sent a lot of vibrators. This is great, as I avidly practice self-love and think every woman needs to have a vibrator. But with so many vibes on the market — seriously, there are tonssssss – how’s a gal to choose? This flowchart… READ MORE »

As fun as it is to buy a new dress or a fabulous pair of platform sandals, sometimes it’s even better to take a break from accumulating new stuff and purge some of the ridiculous things we tend to hold onto. And with Spring coming up, it’s the perfect time to declutter your life. Not… READ MORE »

Everybody needs friends — I love my friends! — but we need different friends for different reasons. Some friends want to party all the time (awesome!) while others are more interested in quiet nights with you on the couch. They’re all important. Here’s the top six types of friends you need in your life.

An outfit isn’t an outfit without the right shoes. The wrong pair can turn an otherwise show-stopping ensemble into something subpar, but there are no written rules — choosing is trial and error. Regardless, there are a few basic varieties of shoes that every woman should have in her closet for different reasons. Sure, they… READ MORE »

This month at The Frisky, we are exploring a wide variety of things that every woman needs. Let’s start with the obvious: MEN. Ladies, protest all you want, but the truth is that we need them. And not just in the romantic, reproductive or changing light bulbs sense. The men in our lives fill a… READ MORE »
