I Went 30 Days Without Makeup And Yikes! Never Again

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!).

5 Weird Things Couples Do When They're In Love

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.

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.

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.

How To Rock A Stylish Mommy Uniform

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.
