Whatever the reason, there often comes a time in our lives when reading takes a back seat to, you know, everything else. Maybe your crazy schedule leaves you no time to go to the library, let alone relax with a good book. Maybe Twitter has ruined your ability to read anything longer than 140 characters. Maybe you were so traumatized by the endless assigned readings in college that you can’t remember what it’s like to read for fun (seriously, I didn’t voluntarily pick up a book for at least a year after graduation). We’re celebrating Rad Reads Week here at The Frisky, which just happens to be the perfect time to rediscover the magic of a good book. Wondering how to get back in the habit? Check out our 10 tips, after the jump! Keep reading »
We always knew Adele had a set of pipes, but it turns out she’s got dancing feet, too. The pregnant songstress was recently seen at a line-dancing class with some of her friends. Adele apparently picked up the country dance style after traveling throughout the U.S. and liked it so much she brought a line-dancing CD to bring home. That’s pretty ballsy for a seven-months-pregnant woman. But hey, whatever! She’s getting her exercise in. [The Sun UK]
Adele isn’t the only celeb doing something kinda-weird while she’s knocked up. Check out all the preggo celebs in Hollywood who had their pickles and ice cream on speed dial!
So here’s the sitch: There’s a date in the date-books, and one half of the twosome in question no longer wants to go. We’ve all been there, on either side of things. We’ve been canceled on, when we, ourselves, were excited. But that’s not what this is. No. This article presumes that you’re the one who’s doing the avoiding. This article is here to give you better, gentler ways to do it.
There’s one key ingredient to a well-constructed white lie, and that is a detail. A key, specific detail. People get paranoid out there in the great, wide world of dating, which means we’re all the more keyed up, all the more terrified of being lied to. And that, in turn, makes it harder to do. But I’m here to make it easier. I’m here to provide, if not any uber-new ideas, some variations on the classics. Keep reading »
We’ve been seeing a lot of Diane Kruger – and her ubiquitous arm candy, Joshua Jackson — of late. She was a member of the Jury for the Main Competition at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, and could be seen flitting about in all manner of ridiculously gorgeous couture gowns. There’s no doubt about it: Kruger’s got style for days, and apparently there’s no shortage of designers salivating to dress her.
After the jump, we take a look at the Teutonic actress’ best outfits.
I never thought I’d see the day where I’d announce on my Facebook wall (as that’s where I express my most passionate opinions): “Katie Holmes, you’re my fucking hero.” As an enthusiastic observer of all things Scientology, I pretty much assumed Katie Holmes was lost to the world, forever in the clutches of husband Tom Cruise, the ghost of L. Ron Hubbard, David Miscavige (the Church’s current leader), and the Church of Scientology itself. Oh sure, Tom and Katie would no doubt call it quits someday (I never for a second believed that union was based on love and sexual desire and real commitment), but Katie struck me as the type to go quietly, like Nicole Kidman before her. Well, Katie, I was wrong about you. You are the biggest suppressive person (SP) the Church of Scientology has ever known. You have attracted more attention to their nefarious practices than anyone before and for that, girlfriend, you are a bad ass. Here are five specific reasons why. Keep reading »
We all get into romantic ruts sometimes. Maybe we’re busy working hard, or we’re traveling a lot, or it just seems like we happen to be circulating in the same crowd and spending all of our time with the same people. Honestly, whose love life couldn’t use a little nudge in a more exciting direction?
Luckily, giving your love life a boost no longer requires making huge, scary moves like setting up an online dating profile, scheduling a bunch of awkward dinner-and-a-movie outings, or begging all your friends to set you up on dates with their single guy friends. This is because we are now living in a post-dating world, where people are connecting (and falling in love!) via more … ambiguous avenues. They are getting to know each other on not-quite-romantic-but-not-quite-platonic non-dates, exploring their connections via e-communication, and feeling sparks of potential, excitement and love with the people in their gaggle.
What is your gaggle? Your gaggle is the group of guys in your life who you might not be “dating,” but who play different roles, fulfill different needs, and help you figure out who you are, what you want and what kind of relationship you ultimately desire. Any time you feel the slightest spark of connection with a guy, no matter how quick or undefined or unexpected, he’s in your gaggle. Keep reading »
