This laptop table tray by Zyane Tan combines two of our favorite activities: eating and computing. Now we might not feel like such slobs when we usually get crumbs all over the keyboard while browsing the morning news. Too bad we don’t have an extra $3,000 handy. [Unplggd] Keep reading »
Can you believe that chocolate portrait of Audrey Hepburn was done by a real person? If you’re looking for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser for a dinner party (which will also distract from a ho-hum dessert if you’re not the world’s greatest baker), check out this surprisingly simple and sweet DIY brought to you by food blog Eye Candy. We know what you’re thinking: Yeah right, Martha Stewart. But trust us, we can hardly draw stick figures, and this was a piece of cake. (Har har.)

I can’t speak for the rest of The Frisky staff, but my own cooking skills are fairly limited. (And by “fairly limited” I mean eggs and pasta are about the extent of it.) It’s not that I’m not interested in learning how to cook, it’s more the fact that most of my hobbies revolve around shoes — as in I literally did ballet for the ballet slippers when I was younger — and that’s a rather hard habit to break. So when I met the Cook In Heels a few months back and she told me about the blog she was working on, I got pretty effing excited (and did a video for her about hot date food!). The pseudonymous chef posts recipe videos on FoodSexVideo.com every ten days or so, scattered sexy food content during the week, and hilarious, filthy little shorts, too. If red patent pumps can’t get a girl like me to cook, I don’t know what can … Keep reading »
Thanks to The Selby, we’ve gone into the homes and apartments of fashion stars like Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Kim Hastreiter, and Aya Kanai. Now, we have a brand new book to add to the coffee table, one which will bring shame to our apartment decor. Despite what you may think about your own interior design skills, the individuals that Todd Selby chooses to highlight have filled their homes with brilliant style that only matches their own personal looks. Filled with 30 profiles, many of which have never been published before, we’re planning on using this book as inspiration to better our own living space. Order yours now for $35.00.

Sometimes the prettiest things are the simplest things—designer Anke Weiss made these light designs by making pin holes in old food packages. Are you handy with a needle? Then take a stab at your own. [Notcot.org] Keep reading »
There are a few features I dream of having in my future home. The list includes a dishwasher, a washer and dryer, a radiator that doesn’t clank, and a striped bathroom. Because of that last wish, the December issue of Lonny made me drool all over my laptop. The online magazine pictures not one but two striped bathrooms. The first (above) is in the J.Crew Collection store on NYC’s Upper East Side, and the second (after the jump) is one of the bathrooms at Hotel Keppler in Paris.
If you’re lucky enough to be allowed to paint the walls in your home (i.e., you own it or have a cool landlord), you can create your own striped bathroom pretty easily. Friends of mine have added black stripes to their white walls, and they advise deciding on a stripe width and mapping it out in the bathroom to ensure the lines don’t hit the corners or mirror edges awkwardly. Keep reading for another striped bathroom photo and tips for executing … [Lonny] Keep reading »
Bubble wrap is making a comeback, people. We’re not sure, however, if this means that we’ve regressed to childhood, or if people are getting more inventive. Either way, we had a good chuckle at the bubble wrap tie, with the plastic material hidden underneath to annoy your boss with during meetings. Now, here’s the 2010 bubble wrap calendar, which allows you to keep track of the date by popping a bubble each day.
The only problem is … how can you pop just one? Guess this is a Zen practice in discipline as well. [Gizmodo] Keep reading »
