I've been carrying around a heavy secret for a while now. It's not something I've been able to admit to my husband or my friends because I know they'll judge me, but I think I'm finally ready to reveal what I've been holding super-close to the vest for awhile now.
One of the things I remember most about being a little girl is sneaking into my mom's room and staring at the different colors of eye shadow and blush, dreaming of the day when I could paint my own face. Those days are long gone. I'm in my mid-thirties, have been wearing makeup half my life, and no longer feel excitement, but rather apprehension, upon realizing I need a new tube of $30 mascara (that sh*t is expensive!).
Usually, Reddit is where I find my daily dose of hilarious and often inappropriate meme images. But recently, a friend pointed me toward thread on Ask Reddit where couples shared the cute weird things that made them fall in love. And the whole thread is cute and weird and basically just one big love fest. Much like a unicorn, snuggling a narwhale surrounded by an entourage of bunnies and kittens. But in a world where love is often cynical and relationships can turn from sweet into knife-throwing in 60 seconds, I thought it would be a good idea to remind you all that love really is the reason for the season.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that over the last few weeks people all over the world have been participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money and awareness for ALS. It's been wildly successful, both in raising money and in drenching participants. The challenge begins when a friend nominates you to either have a cold bucket of water dumped on your head, or donate $100 to the ALS Association. People have been nominating their friends with each pour, which has made the challenge go viral.
The word ‘selfie’ was coined in Australia in the olden days (2002). A drunk guy posted a blurry image of himself and posted it on social media for all to see. I’m sure there were many selfies before then, but they weren’t documented on the internet, and as we now know, that means they don’t count. Social media brings many pros and cons to this world we live in and we’re not quite sure what merit the selfe brings, but we’re thankful it made its mark!
Ah, unlikely celebrity friendships. You are what makes the world go round. Nothing makes us happier than when two celebs who should be polar opposites come together in peace and love. Improbable celebrity duos running out and about in the world fill us with joy, and we hope they do for you, too. Sure, soul mates like Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, with their precious bowler hats and selfies, fill us with love and hope for a bright future, but there's just something magical about two people coming together from completely different ends of the celeb spectrum.
When we enter parenthood, sleep definitely goes out the window, and sometimes (unfortunately) so does our focus on fashion. Sleep deprivation makes you care a heck of a lot less about what you’re wearing, and how you’re wearing it. A successful day in the life of a new mommy rests upon whether or not teeth have been brushed and enough water has been guzzled. Pajamas usually become a staple in the new wardrobe and a scrunchy becomes a necessity instead of the enemy. To help other new moms combat lackluster style habits, we’ve come up with some easy fashion fixes.
If you're a working woman with an unemployed husband, you are not alone. According to new research on modern fatherhood conducted by the University of East Anglia, fewer men are taking up the role of breadwinner. And while your guy is the one that has to make his re-entry into the workplace happen, there are a few things that you can do to help him get back in the saddle.
If the Information Age has taught us anything, it's that everyone has a skeleton in his closet. Just because a gentleman or lady entertains children does not qualify them as role models, mamas. Recently, Peter Robbins, the voice of Charlie Brown, plead guilty to stalking his ex and her plastic surgeon. It got us thinking: what other kid's characters have been convicted of bizarre crimes? Turns out, a lot.
Are you totally baffled as to why you only seem to attract men who are far from ideal for you? Are you tired of ending up with men who aren't ready for the same type of relationship you want? Before you give up on the possibility of ever meeting a guy who truly measures up, you may want to take a look at how the following so-called "dating rules" may be adversely hurting your chances of finding The One.
