Chic On The Street: Nassau Tomboys

Best buds (left to right) Kachelle Knowles and Khmia Poitier are all about comfort. These College of the Bahamas art majors take all the same classes, and are sometimes on campus until midnight. Which is why they wear pajama bottoms and t-shirts under their coveralls they scored from the Red Cross. They even cop to wearing the same thing three days in a row sometimes. Hey, we’re suckers for don’t-give-a-damn, low-key tomboys. Keep reading »

Beauty-Obsessed Travelers, Listen Up!

Frequent fliers (and fashion folk gearing up for Paris, London and Milan shows), this post is for you. A new website, 3floz.com, recently launched, and basically, it’s a site selling only products that are three fluid ounces or less! As their tagline says, “For those who travel, those who are curious and those who can’t commit.” And I’m not talking the usual drugstore stuff—founded by beauty junkies Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz, they sell Dr. Hauschka, Go Smile, Malin + Goetz, Ahava, DDF, Philip B, etc. etc.—beauty brands you actually love to use. Take that TSA! Good idea, right? [3floz.com] Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: Bahamian Eyeshadow

What’s blue, pink, gold and a total cheerfest? We’re thinking Blair Grey is. Strolling out of poli-sci class at the College of the Bahamas, Blair caught our eye immediately with an unexpected color combo on her eyelids (she scored the shadow at Icing) and that adorbs zipper motif tank by Max Rave. This social work major not-so-secretly wants to study graphic design and photography, and we think she’s got it in the bag—she’s brilliant at showcasing bold hues. Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: Neely In Nassau

We found Tyrina Neely, 24, standing out at Bob Marley’s 60th birthday celebration in Nassau, Bahamas. She’s both sleek and flashy in high-waisted jean leggings, a short and natural ‘do, great big accessories and snappy gladiators. Looking stylish is actually her full-time job: She runs her own virtual fashion network, Primadona. Keep reading »

Your Dream “Jersey Shore” Vacation, On The Cheap!

It’s time for a vacation, right? I’ve got an idea for ya. Why don’t you rent the house the “Jersey Shore” kids stayed in for their wild summer in Seaside Heights? Currently, the house will run you $3,500 a night, but come May—when beach season rolls around again—that will go way up, to $6,500 a night, reportedly three times what the house rented for in the pre-reality show days. But think about it: You and your honey could get close in the hot tub, which presumably has been scrubbed down since the summer. You could make a big Italian meal like “The Situation,” cuddle like Ronnie and Sammi, or see if you can master the duck phone a little better than Snooki. Sure, it’ll be freezing out, but you don’t actually have to leave the house. Heck, it’s not like the crew went to the beach more than once all summer. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

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]

Free Vacation To Test An Experimental Diarrhea Drug? It’s Poo-fect!

Weather report from my Blogging HQ in New Jersey: It’s 23 degrees outside but feels like six and 40-mph wind gusts are whipping around. Lovely! A tropical vacation would be sweet right about now. Even a tropical vacation where I had to sacrifice my nether regions to test an experimental diarrhea drug. Keep reading »

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Badass In Bondi

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 most kick ass elements of her look are her shorn hair and Essie Funky Limelight neon nail polish. Keep reading »

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

You’ve got to appreciate this true devotion to the neighborhood: Denby buys everything that she can in her hometown of Bondi Beach to support local friends and businesses. Her frock from Funky Femme looks in bloom among a sea of bikinis and cutoffs. Don’t you wish she was your neighbor? Keep reading »
