I finally got my Tennessee driver’s license last week. The process took me 11 hours, three trips to the spectacularly inconveniently located DMV service station, countless calls to their hotline (spoiler alert: all representatives are always busy), and two episodes of public crying. I always want to root for the Department of Motor Vehicles, I always want them prove everybody wrong, but these past few weeks crushed any lingering specks of faith I had in this bloated, soul-killing bureaucracy. The DMV sucks. It really, really sucks. Just in case you need convincing, or you’ve never been to the DMV, or you just want to take a moment and be really grateful that you’re not at the DMV right now, I’ve composed a step-by-step guide to a terrible DMV experience, illustrated by GIFs. If you think you can handle it, take a number, have a seat, and read on… Keep reading »

Before Beyonce, before Britney, before Mariah and all the others, there was Madonna Louise Ciccone. She’s done a lot through the years, some questionable, some awesome, but all unique and great. Without Madonna, we wouldn’t know about La Isla Bonita or the empowering effect latex has on your sex life. Without Madonna, we wouldn’t have “All The Way” Mae Mordabito from “A League Of Their Own” or everyone’s karaoke standby “Like A Prayer.” In honor of Madge’s 55th birthday, we’re taking a look at the gems of wisdom she’s given us through song. Here are Madonna’s lessons in life and love — in GIFs! Keep reading »

We’ve all been through it — what started off as an innocent movie night with the family becomes a wildly uncomfortable experience the minute a surprisingly racy sex scene fills the screen. Let’s relive all the awkwardness — in GIFs — after the jump…
Last weekend I popped into Sephora to restock my basic brown eyeliner and stumbled out hours later, hundreds of dollars poorer, with an armful of fuchsia lip gloss and a gnarly perfume hangover. The worst part? This happens every single freakin’ time I go to Sephora. I really should know better by now, but after polling the rest of the Frisky staffers, I’ve realized that Sephora psychosis is a universal experience. We all must accept that there are certain things that will happen every time you visit this Mecca of Makeup, no matter what your intentions or how much you try to resist. They are as follows… Keep reading »
Clair Huxtable. The name brings a smile to your lips by the time you even make it to the “X.” Phylicia Rashad played the TV mom that ruled most of our lives for close to a decade in “The Cosby Show.”
Even though her angelic looks made her endearing, Clair Huxtable’s no-nonsense attitude was enough to shape the tone of motherhood for Black moms through the 80s and 90s. In order to properly honor Clair’s stunning sass, we’ve compiled a list of her best GIFS that basically prove she’s not here for your shit. Read more on Hello Beautiful…
As is well documented on this site and my Instagram “about me” section, I am hopelessly obsessed with goats, especially baby goats and pygmy goats and fainting goats — OK, nevermind, I just love ALL THE GOATS. Why am I so enraptured with these bouncy little creatures? Allow me to explain in the most eloquent, concise possible way: a series of adorable goat GIFs… Keep reading »
Adam Levine is my secret celebrity crush. He’s got this weird, tattooed, skeezy charm about him that somehow really works. Perhaps it’s because “This Love” is the one song I always find myself singing along to in Duane Reade, or because his delivery on the chorus of “Moves Like Jagger” sounds like “loose vagina,” or because he is the handsomest judge on “The Voice,” and he manages to make a torn T-shirt look good. Whatever it is, Adam Levine possesses an imprecise combination of playboyish and charming that makes him irresistible. You know, I bet he’d be good to sit down and have a chat with about love, right? He’s got tons of experience, and I’d love nothing more than to gaze into his eyes while he tells me like it is. Through the magic of the internet, it’s now possible! Join me on this GIF journey as Adam Levine shares his best advice on the pursuit of tail.
Not that you actually needed any reasons to be convinced that summer is the best. You already know it. From swimming with friends to working on your tan to French kissing outdoors, here are some GIFs to remind you why summer is the shit. Keep reading »
Ex-boyfriends, they say the darndest things! Most of the time, they’re blathering on is fairly harmless, but sometimes they can say things that are so egregiously clueless/insensitive/crappy that they really warrant special attention. Case in point, a couple of weeks ago, an ex of mine started telling me about his latest breakup. As he was explaining why his girlfriend had dumped him — because, she said, vaguely, she wanted to work on herself — I was struck by the inadvertent irony. That was the same bogus reason he used to break up with me! Wow, karma really is a bitch.
I knew I couldn’t be the only one whose ex had absentmindedly said something so perfectly clueless. So I asked around, and collected 10 actually-true things our exes have said to us. Click through for our most annoying ex quotes — and how we reacted to them — and please share yours in the comments!
