We received a ton of awesome suggestions for great springtime dates, but ultimately we could only crown one winner to take home our Sonia Kashuk spring beauty kit! Here at The Frisky, we’ve pretty much heard of every date idea under the sun, but THIS … this was different.
And the winner is…
Kimothy Jones! She suggested “Ice blocking: you buy ice blocks and go to a grassy hill and slide down. It’s springtime sledding!” Keep reading »
The long cold winter of our discontent has finally started to ease its grip on most of the country. If you live on the East Coast, you’ve most likely been buried in a never-ending pile of snow and frigid weather, seemingly doomed to spend the rest of your life mouldering in your abode, turning as pale and sour as spoiled milk. The past couple of weeks have seen the resurgence of something beautiful — warm weather! Flowers are blooming, the trees are heavy with blossoms, and when you leave work, it’s still light out and the air smells like the promise of short shorts, the beach and exposing your toes — and your winter-hardened heart — to the light. And what’s that in the distance? Ahh yes, a spring fling is on the horizon. Keep reading »

Check out these 10 trenches we love that are sure to make you stand out from the crowd (and don’t forget a stylish umbrella)!
“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.” I saw this Pablo Neruda quote scrawled onto a sandwich board in Brooklyn this weekend, just as I was coming out of a weeks-long funk. The sun was shining and daffodils were popping out of the ground, and I was sure I couldn’t have come across it at a more perfect time. What a relief it is that we’ve survived the cold months! At times, this year’s tedious winter seemed endless — which is why Neruda’s words have stuck with me these last few days. If there’s one thing we can count on, it’s that spring will always find its way back, no matter how dismal January feels. Here are some more quotes to keep you smiling and rejuvenated through this season of new beginnings… Keep reading »
Ahh, spring is in the air! The bees are buzzing, the birds are chirping, the pollen count is so high you can barely see through a haze of yellow dust. What’s not to love? But the best part of springtime, by far, is that it’s the best season to hook up. Why is that, you ask? Let us explain… Keep reading »
Just as all things Easter are starting to show up in stores, Dunkin’ Donuts is presenting us with a gift from above: Peeps donuts. As the treats roll into stores in the next week, you, too, can devour the sugary, tooth-aching goodness that is a neon marshmallow Peep planted atop America’s favorite junk food item. The donuts are flower-shaped and come in pink or green, with a little Peep awkwardly chillin’ at a strange angle in the center. Keep reading »
I subscribe to the style theory of “all black everything.” I’m pretty religious about it most of the year, but come summer, my wardrobe tends to lighten up. (Maybe some dark grey?) My shoes, on the other hand, are nothin’ but black. Black boots, black sandals, black heels — why buy anything else? Black is classic, goes with everything, never gets dirty, and black leather shoes last for years. They’re practically an investment, but that doesn’t mean you should have to cash out over $200 for a solid pair of cool-ass black sandals. Check out these 10 pairs, and wonder why you ever thought it would be a good idea to buy something in beige suede.
You wouldn’t be able to tell by the weather, but it is officially spring! For me, the new season means filling my house with fresh flowers and potted plants to celebrate the end of dull, dead winter. If you’re looking for a pot or planter to house your spring blooms, look no further than Etsy, which has a ton of awesome handmade and vintage options. Click through to check out 10 of my favorites for every style and budget…
As we slog through the remainder of winter, I wanted to offer a little bit of hope, in the form of some cute vases. I mean, if you can’t get spring weather outdoors, you might as well bring it inside. And aren’t you over using that banged up, scratched old FTD vase from 15 years ago? Invest in your flowers and you’ll get many happy returns. Check out our picks after the jump. Keep reading »
Spring and summer fashion is generally pretty predictable insofar as it is, well, summery — think airy, diaphanous fabrics in light, muted colors accented by eye-catching brights, and you’ve just about hit the nail on the head every time. As the S/S 2013 shows crop up, we get a good glimpse at what to expect come next year … and is it just me, or is it all turning out to be a bit darker than usual? That’s not to say that the season’s requisite lightness, comparably more cheerful than that of Autumn/Winter styles, has been sacrificed in favor of deeper, moodier hues; it’s just that all of the whites and pastels are offset by a whole lot of black. I’m the last to complain — black is the predominate color in my wardrobe — so yes, I am unquestionably biased, but I think the contrast serves to make the clothes all the more striking. Are you, like me, thrilled that some of your favorite black pieces might just make the spring/summer cut, or are you all about the whites and brights come June, regardless of what the runway dictates?
