A Better Gym Selfie

I have so many conflicting feelings about gym selfies. I usually just sort of frown at them, shake my head, and move on. They’re the kind of thing that other people do, and while I totally respect their right to do it, I just don’t understand why. This came to a head this morning when, after I came home from the gym, I looked on Twitter and saw a gym selfie a woman had tweeted. She was draped casually over the bar of a Smith machine, and the caption was “It’s a lifestyle, really.”

Like, unironically. Keep reading »

Pomplamoose: A Band At The Unholy Crossroads Of Art And Capitalism [UPDATED]

Indie band Pomplamoose shared their recent tour’s financial information with their fans last week, and, um, it was … Not so good. They’d like everyone to believe that it was good, but it was not good.

The band took in $97,519 in ticket sales for a 28-day tour, which is insane. That is a lot of money for a month-long tour for an indie band. They also made $29,714 in merch sales and had a $8,750 sponsorship from Lenovo. All together, that’s $135,983 for one month of touring, which is practically unheard-of, especially for a band’s second tour. Keep reading »

13 Things Only Midwesterners Can Relate To

life-in-the-midwest

I was born and raised in the midwest, except for a few years spent in Texas. Recently, after visiting Colorado and being genuinely surprised at how different it was, I was talking with my family about how wonderful it is to be from the midwest. People are genuinely friendly, like you could actually walk into a bar by yourself, sit down at a table and leave with new friends. It’s hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact that it’s different in other places. Read more on College Candy…

10 Domestic Resolutions For 2014

domestic-resolution

Let me divulge a well-known secret; I am a type A homebody. By definition, I love to spend time at home, but can’t sit still long enough to make a dent in the couch.  Don’t be fooled: if you find me cuddling with a blanket, I’m still budy making a mental checklist of all the tasks to do that day. I often start with baking and quickly find myself moving bookcases. This year, my New Year’s resolution is to challenge myself to take on 10 domestic projects (some more glamorous than others) that I’ve yet to tackle. Keep reading »

fuck your noguchi coffee table

I firmly believe that the glut of home how-to and design blogs exist solely to make me feel bad about myself (and my narcissism). They make me jealous. My apartment will never contain a cheekily reupholstered couch (the cat will just ruin it), or a darling set of succulent plants (I kill everything), or a well-appointed and tasteful set of throw cushions (again, the cat).

It’s irksome, but I deal in my own way, which is to throw side eye at anyone who tells me about how they decoupaged a set of dinner plates. The guy/gal behind the Tumblr “Fuck Your Noguchi Coffee Table” has their own method of dealing. And that’s giving all the “fuck yous” to these preciously curated homes. Fuck your hat branch, indeed!

6 Reasons To Make Your Bed
Here's why this chore is totally worth it. Read More »

I am not a morning person. Never have been. Ever since elementary school, I’ve been incapable of getting out of bed in a timely manner, let alone having anything resembling hand-eye coordination or a good attitude before, you know, noon. But in recent years, through a seemingly endless series of trials and errors, I’ve discovered a few ways to make mornings suck a little bit less. These days, I don’t completely, totally dread waking up in the morning, which, believe me, is a huge deal. I compiled some of my favorite non-sucky morning strategies and polled the rest of The Frisky staff for their preferred pre-work rituals, and we came up with the following tips that will have you saying “top of the mornin’ to ya!” in no time (JK, don’t say that).  Keep reading »
