Hey so, at first glance, this key chain doesn’t look like much. It’s just a regular key chain loop, right? But no, no, the key chain includes an odd assortment of fake sterling silver keys on it. Fake. Keys. So that you can get frustrated and annoyed as you try to find your real keys amidst all the not-actually-working ones. Oh also, for the privilege of getting annoyed every time you pull out your key chain, you can pay $192. Who is this for? The rich, but janitor-obsessed? Those with a jingling fetish? If you buy this, you are officially a jackass. [AreaWare, $192] Keep reading »
Last week, we asked you to tell us the story of receiving your first set of keys in the hopes of winning an exclusive Linea Pelle Suede Fringe Key Chain. You all had some pretty awesome stories, but there can only be one winner. And she is … painted_lady! Read her comment and three honorable mentions after the jump. Keep reading »
Linea Pelle is known for creating luxury leather and suede belts, handbags, and other accessories the celebrities and fashion insiders love. The Alex Suede Vintage Fringe Mini purse caused quite a stir because the boho-chic remains a coveted look. However, that much fringe can be difficult to carry off for some women. That’s why we like the Linea Pelle Suede Fringe Keychain. It gives a small dose of bohemian style without turning the wearer into a modern-day hippie (not that there’s anything wrong with that). This keychain will add some glam-chic to your keys and help you find them in that cavernous bag of yours. What’s even better? This is an exclusive keychain that wasn’t sold in stores or online.
WIN THIS! We’re giving away one Linea Pelle Suede Fringe Keychain and pouch, but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us about receiving your first set of keys by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14, 2010. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, Oct. 15. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. (Read the official rules here.) Good luck!

Happy almost-Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re single or taken, The Frisky wants to be your Valentine. Look for a contest each day leading up to Feb. 14. Prizes will include makeup, books, lingerie, jewelry, and more, but each one only lasts a day—enter now!
Typical Valentine’s Day jewelry is big on hearts, and while that shape is quite nice, we like the idea of keys as a symbol of affection even better. See, we already have a blood pumper of our own, so why do we need another one? A key, on the other hand, means that someone wants to let you inside his life — whether it opens his apartment door, or his heart. [$45, Elsewares]
We’re giving away one Erica Weiner skeleton key necklace from Elsewares, but you have to work if you want it. Do you think you should let your significant other know about the skeletons in your closet? Share your advice in the comments by 3:39 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 6 (that’s tomorrow!). We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
UPDATE! The winner of the Erica Weiner necklace is taralee for this comment:
I think it really just depends on what the “skeletons” are. I really don’t care about who my husband boned (pun intended) before we got together or how many times he drank excessively and did something regrettable. The past is the past and people change… sometimes. Things that I would like to know about: STDs (current and history), previous convictions to include: rape, murder, assault, etc etc etc and whether or not they live in their mother’s basement. Hey… a girl has got to start somewhere.
Thank you for all your comments! Keep reading »

Keeping track of keys can become a full-time job, but one way to ensure you won’t lose them is by dangling them from a doodad you would hate to part with. We certainly wouldn’t want to say goodbye to these adorable love
birds ducks from Paris-based handbag and accessories company Jamin Puech, so consider our keys protected and those embarrassing nights when we have to call the super during the wee hours to unlock our door a thing of the past. [$80, Jamin Puech]
WIN THIS! We’re giving away one Jamin Puech St. Valentine keychain but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, share your best advice for getting along with a roommate (significant other or friend) by 3:39 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3 (that’s tomorrow!). We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
UPDATE: The winner of the Jamin Puech keychain is ToriBoo for this comment:
Always remember that no matter how much you love being around your BF/BFF/RMM there is a threshold of too much US time. The only person that is going to be with you your whole life is YOU! Never lose touch with yourself and this will keep your US time with others in check. Compromise is the key to all relationships, give and take! Especially when it comes to your time.

If you have to drive to work, you don’t really have to worry about locking yourself out of the house — you sort of need your keys to leave the driveway. But for those of us who take public transit (and have our doors set to automatically lock behind us), getting shut out of our apartments is a reality. After having to walk a mile to a friend’s home to pick up a spare set of keys three times in one month, I decided I needed to change something about my routine.
While some like to put a decorative tray on a table by the door as a home for keys, I found that my keys blended in with the tray, and I failed to notice them as I walked by. So, to nip this bad habit in the bud, I hung a hook on the wall by the door. I hang my key chain on it when I arrive home in the evening. On my way out in the morning, I can clearly see whether it’s still hanging there. I haven’t forgotten my keys since! [Horse Bit Hook, $10, Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »
There’s a more than 1,000-word story in today’s New York Times about giving someone you’re dating the keys to your apartment: Is it a big deal? Is it a sign that he or she is The One? Should you change the locks if you break up? I suppose that for me, giving someone a set of keys to my apartment would be a big deal, because I don’t really like having guys over unless I actually like them. My teeny apartment is my home — I don’t want to bring in any riffraff. Annika knew that her relationship wasn’t over when she and her man took a break and he told her to keep the keys to his place. And Amelia thinks the key thing is a big step in a relationship, but so is an offer to dog sit if she goes out of town, or picking up her favorite things at the grocery. What are the relationship milestones that tell you when things are really getting serious? Keep reading »
