Air New Zealand Introduces “Cuddle Class”

How bitter are we unwashed masses when we board a long flight and see those smug bastards in first and business class reclining on a bed with a down comforter, while we slog on back to our cramped economy seats? When we do take our seat next to the snogging couple or the mom with a crying baby, our only relief is to hit the recline button and push back about four to five inches. That is not reclining, darn it! Keep reading »

A Kiss Is Just A Kiss … Or An Airport Security Breach

Last Sunday, there was a big post-underpants bomber mess at Newark Airport in New Jersey. The entire place was completely shut down—everyone in the terminal was evacuated and had to be rescanned to enter—because some dude walked the wrong way through security and disappeared into the crowd. So did this man have nefarious intentions? No, in true fairytale form, it turns out all he was after was a kiss. Here’s what happened: TSA agent Ruben Hernandez was keeping watch at the security barrier when an unnamed gentleman said farewell to his lady friend. The lady went off for her flight, and the man tried to follow her. At first, no problem—Hernandez stopped Romeo. But then the agent’s cell phone rang. While Hernandez was distracted, our unnamed suitor slipped unnoticed under the rope to spend some more time snogging his lady love. And panic ensued. All I have to say is, come on! Hasn’t TSA seen a romantic comedy before? (Or that episode of Friends when Janice shows up at the airport to bid Chandler goodbye as he leaves for his originally BS trip to Yemen?) Apparently not. They are currently using video footage and cross-checking it with airplane manifests to try to find the woman in question, hoping that she will lead to the still MIA Romeo. [New York Post]

With Michael Kors’ leather, Balmain’s studs, and Rodarte’s bondage boots, the tough chic look ruled the runways for fall/winter. Erin takes the hard edged look in stride with an American Apparel T-shirt dress and vintage boots. But just because she’s hardcore, doesn’t mean she neglects the beauty aisle.

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Bondi Beach Bleach

Thanks to Marc Jacobs’ fall show, the mother trend of the ’80s — acid washed jeans — is back. When I saw the models come down the runway, I lived in fear of the coming street translation.

Travel Diary: The Peruvian Meat-On-A-Stick Adventure

Last week, when The Frisky held its fancy party, one of the snacks was lamb served on a stick, which got me thinking about the last time I ate interestingly stabbed meat. It started with a bang the day I arrived in Peru — I passed out onto my face. I woke up on the hotel bathroom floor, surrounded by and smeared with blood. Then I was revived, mysteriously back in bed, and staring at the ceiling, which I thought was breathing. My adventure had begun. Keep reading »
