We’re not sure all dogs are like this, but at least two Frisky staffers’ dogs love to burrow into blankets and towels and piles of clothes and, in some cases, even leaves and snow. We’re not sure why this is, but it certainly is freakin’ adorable when they do, we’ll tell ya that much. If you’re in the market for splurging on a ridiculously overpriced yet darling gift for your very worthy dog this holiday season, might we suggest this Snuggie Lux Trundle Bed? It’s made of ultra-soft chenille and faux mink, is machine-washable, and, depending on the size you order, costs just $66-$72. Cough. [Muttropolis] Keep reading »
When you do something good, you shouldn’t expect to get anything in return. But, you have to admit, it’s not so bad when you do. During the holiday season, Kiehl’s is selling a special edition version of their beloved by the masses Creme de Corps body moisturizer, with 100 percent of the net profits supporting RxArt, an organization that brings art to pediatric hospital patients. The lotion, with a bright label designed by graffiti artist KAWS, guarantees to keep your skin (or a loved one’s) nice and soft all winter. And every time you put some on, you’ll be enriching young patients’ lives with art. [$26.50, Kiehl's] Keep reading »

Also, at $14.99, it costs just slightly more than one movie ticket. Order here and check out a few more gorgeous, deadly dames after the jump! Keep reading »
Target was one of the first mega-retail chains to commit to selling affordable clothing and accessories alongside essentials like detergent, cosmetics, and food. Basically, it’s a one-stop shopping destination for recessionistas who aren’t willing to sacrifice style when on a budget. I’ve never seen any fashion item priced above $100, so you don’t have to feel any shopper’s guilt if you take yourself on a mini shopping spree. Check out our favorite Cheapskate finds, after the jump. Keep reading »
Topshop just sent us their new Kate Moss holiday collection preview pics, and while we love all the festive party frocks and glammed-up knits, everyone seems to be gravitating toward the pajamas and robes section of the lineup. I don’t know about you guys, but I can remember many a holiday season where I was gifted a pair of pajamas — soft bottoms and a matching top — that I’d wear all winter long. They were usually fleece and bore some kind of childish print (snowflakes, hearts, etc.), and maybe it’s the equivalent of getting new socks in your stocking, but I just loved them! Anyway, perhaps that’s why these Topshop ditties are even more appealing. They’re the much sexier, grown-up versions of your tween holiday loungewear, like this beyond gorgeous butterfly kimono, which is a real standout in the collection. After the jump, the pajama sets, sexy rompers and sleepy winter attire we have our hearts set on this season. Keep reading »
Is that a Bo in your pocket or are you just excited to see me? Both. Sort of. Meet Bo, a male vibrator made by Lelo, a company known for its sleek array of designer sex toys. (You might know one of their bestsellers, a USB rechargeable vibrator which looks like a tube of lipstick.) The male version is a discreet “gentleman’s ring” which delivers stimulation through an energetic and vigorous vibration. Bo can be used for joint pleasure during intercourse; however, it seems to be marketed more to solo time. That picture implies that the accessory should become an everyday object, one used so routinely that he could carry it in his pocket along with other necessities like a wallet, pen, and glasses. Ew!
Here’s the thing: If a girl carried around a sex toy in her purse to pleasure herself throughout the day, many guys would find this a turn-on. But a guy who carries a male vibrator in his pocket? Dealbreaker. Amiright? [Lelo] Keep reading »
Sure, in a perfect world, our favorite fragrance would be all our own. It would be an exclusive scent that smells like no other, and when we left a room, people would say, “Oh, it still smells like her,” and sigh wistfully. (For that matter, no one would have the same H&M dresses either, hate that.) Sadly, that privilege isn’t exactly realistic when you consider that L’Artisan Parfumeur is selling that very exclusivity to the tune of $10,000. For that low, low price, you can purchase one of eight new couture fragrances that comes with a “certificate of authentication,” and twelve bottles of various sizes. You may also opt to purchase another bottle for $450 at some point during your lifetime, and can will the certificate, or “ownership,” of the scent to your heirs. Personally, if I was rich and decided to blow 10 grand on some perfume, I would kind of want some say in choosing what it smelled like. But then again I’d probably be too

INTERIOR, A NIGHT CLUB:
An obviously dorky, wallflower-like girl, Stacey, stands alone awkwardly at the bar. Her ultra-hot friend, Tracy, walks up and joins her, sweaty from the dance floor. The music is blaring.
Stacey: Tracy, you get so many guys. I just don’t know how you do it! I can’t even get a dude to look at me.
Tracy: You know what your problem is, Stacey?
Stacey: I barely fill out an A-cup and become too invested after sex?
Tracy: No. They don’t look at you because they can’t see you. Literally. That’s why I wear these (points to pants), Diesel‘s glow-in-the-dark jeans.
Stacey: Oooh, you’re glowing and you’re not even pregnant!
Tracy: Uh, right. Anyhow, they’re part of the fall 2009 collection, and they’re painted with a special coating which lights up under UV lights. Some of the jeans come with stitching or graphics that show up in the dark. This way, guys can pick me out of a crowd in a dark club.
Stacey: Right on! You glow, girl! [Nitrolicious] Keep reading »
I have the kind of cuticles that look dry and ragged a day or two after a manicure, and my cracked knuckles sometimes look as if I walk like a gorilla. Despite my best efforts to re-apply lotion after washing my hands and sleeping with my hands slathered in Vaseline and covered with moisturizing gloves, my hands never quite achieve hand model-level beauty. Every winter I’m on a quest to find a miracle in a bottle or tube that will give me soft, weather- and life-proof hands, but spring usually rolls around before that ever happens.
This year, though, I’ve gotten a head start and I think I might have even won the race. For a week now, I’ve been using the Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection Nail and Cuticle Treatment. It contains omega-3 fatty acids to lessen moisture loss, vitamins A and E to neutralize damage from free radicals, caprylic (derived from coconuts) to moisturize, and rosemary and lavender extracts as an antiseptic. I noticed smoother and more supple cuticles after the first application, and the results only improved as I applied the Nail and Cuticle Treatment at least three times a day or whenever I thought about it. I didn’t even follow-up religiously with the Night Solution for Hands, but can report that my hands now feel nourished and toned, too. While I’m happy with the results of the cuticle treatment, I’m not sure if I’d spend $22 on it and forget the $75 for the Night Solution. What do you do for dry hands? Keep reading »
