Spring Cleaning Week at The Frisky has made it seem like we’re all a couple of Martha Stewarts hoovering Adderall. Lies! While we’re not gross-gross, I do feel it is my duty as a Frisky staffer to present an honest portrait of us: we’re a little gross. Julie’s desk is a wasteland of half-eaten snacks, Ami’s is covered in papers, mine has bagel crumbs stuck to coffee stains, and Amelia’s got a half-drunk plastic cup of red wine on hers that’s been sitting there for days. (Not even sure what that’s about — possibly this?) In conclusion, we probably shouldn’t be lecturing ANYBODY about cleanliness.
So, in the interest of full disclosure, we’re going to — anonymously! — share some gross things we do in the bathroom which we would never admit to doing.
Please don’t tell our mothers. Keep reading »
If you were to take a peek into our shower, you’d see loads of body gel cluttering the shower shelves, various cheapie drugstore shampoo and conditioner bottles, and one half-busted, grimy shower radio. Seriously, the thing is a petri dish for the green-black mold that we hope and pray isn’t slowly killing us with every get-clean session. (Not to mention, it’s from The Sharper Image circa 2005—no wonder that company shuttered all its stores!) Seeing that it’s a radio on its last legs, we’ve been dying for a newer, sleeker version. Behold: a very incognito shower radio (the “bottle” on the left in the photo) by Muji. We want. We need. [about $37, Muji] Keep reading »
If you put on your bikini, grab yourself a fruity cocktail, then head out to the sun…in your own backyard –you’re on a stay-cation. Touted on every channel as the “stay at home and relax” vacation, it makes you feel that your lack of funds for a resort getaway is in fact a really great thing. That got us thinking that the obvs next step in this easy-to-do vacation trend should be an “escape” from your normal beauty routine. Want the ’70s porn-bush you’ve always dreamed of? Take a “Beauty Vacation!” Want to let your leg hair run amok to its heart content? Let it grow, mama, let it GROW! Note: A “Beauty Vacation” takes more effort than just sitting on the couch, or lounging hairily in the sun:You have to completely commit yourself to not obsessively grooming the way you normally would. Here are a few ideas from fellow naturalists to start you off:

San Francisco film crew staffer, Brian Benson, was sick of being teased by co-workers that he was playing gay to get chicks — which, btw, one of the funniest pop songs by The Blood Hound Gang. So to get back at the men who were jealous of all the female attention he was getting, Benson decided to rub-a-dub-dub it in their faces by showering with his girlfriends and then taking Polaroids to prove it. By the end of the year, he had reached his goal of 100! Best of all, you can see these cheeky photos that are cleverly nudity free-ish on his website, but weâ€™re waiting for the coffee table version! [Ploomy]
