There are many female comedians that are showing their own perspectives on television today. There's Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer of Broad City; Mindy Kaling of The Mindy Project; and Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair of Playing House to name a few. It's definitely refreshing since men have been dominating the comedy scene for so long.
Long are the days where a sonogram Facebook post is considered a creative baby announcement. These days, with the potential to go viral, baby announcements are all about clever pictures, pop culture references and being laugh-out-loud funny. Think you've seen some pretty epics ones? That's what we thought until we saw Meg and Becca's adorable (and unconventional) announcement, which completely won the internet this week.
A lot of awesome results can come out of spending time in the gym—we look and feel better, we're healthier, we have more energy. Fitness classes are an awesome way to get (and stay) motivated. There's so many classes to choose from: Zumba, spinning, kickboxing, pilates, barre classes, yoga, etc — it's practically hard to find something you don't enjoy with all the options out there. And, with a certified instructor, good company, fun music and a well-planned routine, what could possibly go wrong?

You're blissfully in love and now you're engaged (probably). That's awesome. And that means you're doing some wedding planning, which can either be awesome or awful, depending on how much cash you have to work with, how much effort you and your partner put in and on who you picked for your bridal party. I get that planning a wedding is stressful and a lot of work.
With 365 days filled with possibilities, there's no question that a lot can happen in a year. Having the possibility of love, heartbreak, and success resting on your shoulders would leave anything feeling exhausted. But whether you experienced the good, the bad or a mix of both, the mere thought of a new year—a chance to start with a clean slate—should make you hopeful and excited for what's to come. And what's the best way to go out with the old and in with the new? By celebrating, of course!
As 2014 comes to a close, we took a look at this year's most elaborate, secretive and all-around awesome weddings. From Brad and Angelina to Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, it seemed it was wedding season all year round. Check out our slideshow to see how the coolest celebs and socialites celebrated their extravagant nuptials. Image: We Heart It More awesome content from Guest of a Guest:
It's easy to feel like a bad person when we don't want a present we were given in the spirit of the season. Wouldn't it just be so much easier if we loved it? However, none of us have tons of space for things we do not need or want, and it helps no one to use "but it was a gift" as an excuse to hold on to anything you don't need, use, or love. Doing so will only create clutter in your home or life—and that's a really non-feng-shui way to start a new year!
If you're like me, scoring makeup and beauty products that are not only in your price range, but actually work wonders will either make you want to do a special victory dance or scream and shout to anyone who will listen. As a beauty fanatic who takes makeup very seriously, finding the right products that compliment my skin perfectly and fit into my everyday beauty regimen is sometimes a rare occasion.
Parties present the perfect excuse to let your hair down between the gift-buying, work-prepping, crowd-maneuvering holiday hustle (not to mention lay down the yoga pants in favor of something less-stretchy, more sparkly). To ensure you don’t miss (or become even more stressed) out due to lack of the time or funds typically spent on hunting down an ensemble as grand as the occasion at hand, we went ahead and styled eight no-fuss pairings to meet all of your partying needs. The best part? Each look is only three clicks away, and can be purchased for $100 or less.
Aside from spending time with family and friends, one of the most heartwarming aspects of the holidays is getting to see the smile break out on their faces as they open holiday gifts. What makes this even better is when the gift is well thought-out and totally fits their personalities. As a total Sherlock Holmes nerd, I have no shame admitting that a lot of my nights are either spent binge-watching all of the episodes from the BBC Sherlock series or staying up until dawn trying to reread my favorite scenes from the original book series.
Do you ever find yourself wishing you could just be with animals all day? Do you love dogs? Cats? Wildlife? If you find yourself ever wanting to give back to animals in need or help them find a loving home (maybe your place???), volunteer at an animal shelter! Many of them are non-profit and no-kill organizations, striving to make the world a better, more loving place for abandoned and unwanted animals. These shelters often depend on volunteers for their success.
We've all had those days (or if you're like me, those weeks) where your skin gives you nothing but trouble. Whether it’s excessively dry, oily, or a combination of both, the unappealing appearance of your skin really hurts your confidence… and rightfully so! After all, your face is one of your greatest physical features. That’s why it's extremely frustrating when you feel like your skin isn't looking its best. When you're having a bad skin day (or week), you may be tempted to hide under your sheets all day.
What books did you love as a kid? The ones that you read over and over, or wanted to have read to you, until their spines were falling apart and the covers looked about ready to collapse from exhaustion. As a parent, it can be easy to inspire the same love in your child by getting more in-tune with the kind of books they like and either reading to them or reading along with them. What's really special about it is seeing how excited your kids get when they see how interested you are in the book they're really into at the moment.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Not because it's the holidays, per se, but because it's time to shop and shop and shop! And, do some of that shopping for the ones you love. Who doesn't love to spend money left and right on the ones closest to their heart? My greatest love is my 9-year-old Jack Russell, Hubbell. To me, he is the most magnificent creature to have ever lived and my love for him trumps my love for every other living and breathing thing in my life.
