11 Extreme Things We've Done In The Name Of Beauty

Most of us women are familiar with the old saying "pain is beauty", but that doesn't even account for the time, money and (typically as a result of trying — and not succeeding at various products and procedures) frustration that are typically par for the cosmetic enhancement course.

9 People Who Are Going To Cheat On You (Says Science)

Let's face it, no one on earth actually wants to date a cheater but oftentimes we don't see the signs that our beloved boyfriend or girlfriend is secretly a shady little liar who's about to ruin your life.
