Ever wanted to just leave it all behind and start from scratch? We know you have that one idea you've always thought would make you a millionaire if only you had the time-- that one thing you really love to do that you’d happily make your career. Or do you have that one dream career ever since you were a kid that you'd love to see turn into a reality? We rounded up nine women who took something they were incredibly passionate about and made killer businesses. And guess what-- they all built it from the ground up.
October is officially here, which means it's time to break out the horror flicks, the costumes, the pumpkins and of course, your scary movie collection. Scary movies are just better in October. You can curl up with a blanket (because it's perfect blanket weather), a pumpkin pie and a little Norman Bates ,and that is an ideal night. Plus there are 31 nights to scare yourself!
Last month Netflix announced that they would be adding the entire Gilmore Girls series on Netflix. Well, happy October! The day is finally upon us. We can go back and watch our favorite mother-daughter duo talk really fast. We've missed Luke, Logan, Miss Patty, Kirk and even Taylor (sometimes). Maybe you have the series on DVDs so this really isn't a big deal to you, but for those of us who have been waiting since 2007 to re-watch this series, this is the best news to happen ever.
When you’re in love, it isn’t unusual for you to want to tell the entire world. While some may want to scream it from the rooftops, most take the modern approach by using social media as a tool to express their love. I think it's pretty safe to say that we've all been guilty of this. First, you can’t stop yourself from tagging your significant other in sugary sweet statuses. Then, you make a habit out of regularly sharing those cutesy love quotes on Facebook — You know, the same ones that annoyed you when you were single.
Although it’s 2014, racism and racial profiling still very much exists. It's hard to fathom that in this day and age, there are still people who disgrace others based on not only their skin, but who they're dating. This should go without saying but sometimes you can’t help who you fall in love with — And you shouldn’t have to. As long as your relationship isn't illegal or hurting anyone, you should be able to love freely. Why should the confines of society dictate who you can and can not be with?
Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, or simply just because … there is seriously never a bad time to bestow a little something on your favorite man to let him know how much you care. Only problem is, what on earth do you get him? We all know how difficult guys can be to shop for, especially since they never seem to "need" anything (we know you do, fellas!) or seem to have pretty much everything. It's not like he has a wishlist on his nightstand or a Pinterest board you can peek.
Have a bestie who seriously can't get enough of herself? A boyfriend who spends hours, sometimes days, looking in the mirror? Or did you wake up feeling like it's time to unleash your inner-Kanye today and remind the world how freaking amazing you are once and for all? Good, you've come to the right place.
Ah, quotes. Nothing makes us smile quite like a good quote. And quotes about life take the cake! We love a sweet saying about the world, or a cute quote about how to live a better life. They seriously make our day. For reals. And I mean hardcore. So, we rounded up 11 life quotes that gave us a good giggle as well as a warm and fuzzy feeling. These quotes and sayings will inspire you to be a better person, in all aspects of your life, be it in your relationships, work life or even your general interactions with the rest of the world.
You've been waiting for this day ever since you were a little girl, planning your dream wedding to your dream guy holding up your dream ring while all your best friends were mulling over which Barbie they were going to beg their moms to buy. You've been relentlessly pinning stunning rings ever since Pinterest made its debut and you've been helplessly reposting brides on their big day on your Tumblr.
Love quotes, when used appropriately, are like wonderful little gems sent from heaven. They are cute, sweet and oh so lovely. But put in the wrong hands, and love quotes turn into heinous, obnoxious, trite little bits of nothing. Take Facebook for example. It's one thing to wake up in the morning, check your feed and see something insightful and powerful from Pablo Neruda or Oscar Wilde. That's great. We're all for those kinds of mornings (frankly, we live for them).
Everybody loves love, even introverts. It is a common misconception that we are emotionless and reserved, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Introverts love just as deeply as everyone else. We might like out alone time, but that doesn't mean we don’t love with passion, too. In fact, our precious alone time can make us better partners to the rest of you, once we've had time to recharge and be with our thoughts. And how do we prove this point? With quotes about love, of course!
Magic Mike is getting a sequel, and details are finally starting to be revealed! The casting news of Magic Mike XXL is slowly trickling, and new additions include Jade Pinkett-Smith, Amber Heard and Andie MacDowell. (As for the details of their actual roles, all we know so far is that Pinkett-Smith's character was originally written for a man — and that is not stripping in the flick!)
Let's face it, Scandal is so good because the characters can be so terrible to the ones they love. After all, the entire show started on the scandal of Olivia sleeping with the very-much married President named Fitz. Then there was the scandal of him having sex with yet another young girl in the White House —who ended up pregnant and murdered. A lot has happened since then, but the show has never ceased to give us juicy examples of terrible relationship choices.
Kris Jenner, the Kardashian matriarch, separated from hubby Bruce Jenner last year, amicably so. The mom of lots of female children with "K" first names has just filed for divorce, sounding the death knell for the marriage, which became public fodder when the many Kardsahian reality shows caught fire.
Season 10 of Grey's Anatomy was so bittersweet. Spoiler alert: Don't read on if you haven't seen it yet! Christina leaving the show was pretty much a sob fest for those of us who have dedicated almost a decade to Meredith Grey and Christina Yang's friendship. On that note, Derek and Meredith are also on the rocks, which while not unusual, you never know what Shondaland might do at the end of the season. She's like the female version of G.R.R. Martin.
