Lately I’ve been thinking about the things we believe we can’t do, and how many of them we actually end up doing at some point in our lives. For me, moving across the country and dealing with my brother being deployed are two things that fall in that category. I’m not saying these are the pinnacle achievements of the human experience or anything, but for me, personally, these were two things I never thought I could do, and this year I did/am doing both. I asked the rest of the Frisky ladies to tell me their “Oh my God, I just did that” accomplishments, and it turns out we’ve proved ourselves wrong and pushed our own limits in everything from sex and relationships to skydiving and facing our fears of chickens. Check out our list below, and please share your own in the comments! Keep reading »

14 Life & Love Lessons From Madonna (In GIFs!)

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 there. Your sister is sunning herself in Hawaii, your bestie is exploring Europe, your Facebook friends are checking in to luxury hotels in faraway lands, your Instagram feed is full of high-contrast pictures of airplane wings, and you’re … sitting at home watching an episode of “Chopped” you’ve already seen three times, feeling increasingly bitter about your stagnant lifestyle. It’s called Vacation Envy, and it can strike any of us at any time, no matter how often we actually travel. It can be triggered by a travel blog, a Facebook status, a coworker returning to work with a deep tan, or the sight of Anthony Bourdain’s smug little face.

How do you recover when you’re always dropping people off at the airport and never getting dropped off yourself? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Read on for some signs that you’re suffering from Vacation Envy, and some practical ways to deal. Good luck! Keep reading »

Online detox

A couple weeks ago, I clicked on a Twitter link from a website I follow that used to be an interesting mix of entertainment and weird news stories, but has recently devolved into link-baiting sensationalism. The link said something like, “Chinese woman dies in freak accident with runaway shopping cart. Watch the video here!” It was early, I was groggy, and I clicked the link. I don’t know what I was expecting (seriously, what the fuck was I expecting?!), but what I watched was indeed a video of a woman getting smashed against a wall by a runaway shopping cart. It was horrible and extremely upsetting. It was also a wake up call: I hadn’t even had my coffee yet, and I’d already WATCHED SOMEONE DIE — I really, really needed to overhaul my online habits.

The 8 Most Awkward Ways To Beat The Heat

The 8 Most Awkward Ways To Beat The Heat

Until yesterday, I had been enjoying this summer from the comfort discomfort of my un-air conditioned, fourth floor walk-up apartment. In May I was all, “I can totally do this! It’s not even hot out yet!” but by July my tune turned to, “I just want to take a cold shower and sit in the dark in front of my fan. No one talk to me.” That’s when I hit rock bottom, as it were, and started looking for opportunities to cool down nearly every place I went.

I was the crazy lady asking for six cups of ice from Starbucks, the eager employee who would stay late just to enjoy extra time in front of an AC. And that was really just the tip of the quickly melting iceberg. Last night I knew I had to buy an air conditioning unit, because these awkward and absurd beat the heat techniques started sounding like heaven to me. Read more on College Candy…

12 Relationship Tests (And How To Pass Them With Flying Colors)

When we hear people talk about “testing” their significant other’s commitment or devotion through various underhanded tactics, we can’t help but shake our heads. The fact is, any long-term relationship is going to be tested in many ways, some of which we can control, but most of which we can’t. Life challenges like moving in together, family dramas, and dealing with the death of a loved one will absolutely test your relationship, but if you approach these situations with empathy and patience, you’ll come out the other side so much closer as a couple. Wondering how to pass these “tests” with flying colors? Click through for our relationship road map! [Photo from Shutterstock]
