It’s not yet Memorial Day, the traditional time when it’s apparently okay to wear white again. Where or how this stupid tradition began, I don’t know, but I do know that I’ve been completely indoctrinated into it, and won’t wear white before the end of may. Fine, I’m a weirdo (also, I will totally get anything white dirty, quick). But there’s a ton of celeb ladies who are eschewing the old ways, and freely flaunting white gowns and dresses. Just last week, in fact, we saw Michelle Rodriguez, Chloe Sevigny, Joely Richardson, Mariska Hargitay and Julianne Hough all stepping out in gleaming white. But who wore it best? You tell us!

It should come as no surprise that for all the obsessing we do about Ryan Gosling, baby pandas, Grumpy Cat, Karl Lagerfeld, Chavril and the endless array of Be My Boyfriend candidates, The Frisky is most inspired by the work of the many rad women we look up to. There are so many pop culture heavyweights and high-powered newsmakers who show us how its done and inspire us with their achievements every day. Naturally, of course, we each have our favorites. With that in mind, each Frisky staff member was tasked with choosing and submitting their favorite rad and inspiring woman — okay, a few of us got to pick two — for nomination, along with a photo of herself and a blurb about why they chose the woman they did.
And now we want you to vote for your favorite of the 10 women we’ve chosen.
The poll will remain open for two weeks — until April 22 — and, at that time, the woman with the most votes will become, effectively, our Rad & Inspiring Woman of the Year.
So what do you say? Will you tell us who you love, too? Vote now! Keep reading »
It’s time for another round of “You Choose It, We Write It,” in which we pit two ingenious topics from the Content Idea Generator against each other and let readers choose which story they want to see on The Frisky. This week, we’re heading in a slightly nerdier direction — let me know what you want me to write by voting below!
Did you vote on Election Day? I hope so — if not, you have no excuse, because even the very famous and very busy managed to make it to the polls. After the jump, a few of the celebs who were snapped casting their ballots. And look at that, they’re just like us: they came dressed in sweatpants and flannels too!
How are you going to get through the next 24 hours of election news, voting and results? If you’re anything like us, you’ll need a stiff drink or three to watch the votes roll in tonight. We are nervous as heck, and this drinking game should help us, and you, relax a little bit. Until the cold, harsh light of Wednesday morning hits us, anyway.
Listen, I’ve never thought of Pink (binomial: P!nk) as a particularly well-dressed person, but this is a new low nonetheless. On the bright side, I like her pastel quiff! Seriously though, am I overreacting or is this actually one of the most unseemly dresses ever created? You decide.
Apparently it’s National Kissing Day! Who knew? The only lips I’m interested in smooching are hundreds of miles away (frowny face), but I’m happy to use this holiday as an excuse to talk about other places that ca be kissed. According to research conducted by William Cane for his book The Art of Kissing, 96 percent of women like their partner to focus on kissing their neck during a make-out session. Unfortunately, we’re either not conveying that or dudes are not getting the hint, because that same study showed that only 10 percent of men give the neck any smooching. Now, I like getting kissed on the neck as much as anybody, but there are plenty of other places I like to be kissed besides my lips that sometimes are neglected. What about you?
Your relationship with your cellphone may be harmful to your health. A recent Harvard Business School study has shown that most of us have risky attachments to our cellphones that may be affecting our work, personal lives and health. One of the recent concerns is the harmful effects the blue light emitted from mobile phones may cause. Apparently, itsuppresses melatonin needed for sleep and dreams by confusing our brains into thinking it’s daytime. Without adequate sleep, we become cranky, anxious and generally not a pleasure to be around. Keep reading »
We’ve all planned dates and meetups with friends — but what about sexytimes? An article by “life intimacy coach” Kim Anami suggests that if you really want to maintain a sense of intimacy with your partner, you better get your iCals synced. “Knowing what we know about the power of sex to energize and uplift, mind, body and soul, it’s important to prioritize it in our lives,” says Anami. “To schedule it even.” In her practice as a couples counselor, she often recommends that couples designate certain times of the week as sex time. And she recommends that couples spend at least three hours per week having sex. Keep reading »
Look, I went to a women’s college (Mount Holyoke!) for a year, and I saw a lot of hairy things. I don’t judge. But for myself, I choose to shave as often as I am in the shower, which is just about every day. I understand that not everyone is like this, however, and in the case of Terry Richardson consort and maybe-model Charlotte Free (pictured) it looks like it’s been a couple of weeks. That got us wondering…
