Why Your Instagram Followers Don’t Matter, So Stop Caring

Another day, another massive loop giveaway. Maybe it’s a Louis Vuitton Luggage Set or ooh, how about a trip to the Maldives? The madness has gotten out of hand and it’s about time someone on the inside tells you what that’s really about. To be fair, some giveaways are a group of like-minded creators who band together and chip in to award a lucky winner…

The Worst Things Women Lie About

There’s no denying that one of the biggest challenges in relationships and marriage is dishonesty. While both partners usually play a role in this, women are guilty of shoveling the blame to their partners. We always hear about how men lie incessantly and it got me curious about what women actually lie about. I asked over 300 women what lies they told in the beginning stages of their relationships, and they dished. Here are the most common culprits…

These Pinterest-Worthy Plants Are All Look, No Work

I love the look of greenery in my home, but let’s just say the ‘green thumb’ gene skipped my generation. Keeping Theo alive is an achievement within itself and while I’d love to fill my home with real oxygen-induced plants, it’s just not going to happen. The good news is that like hair extensions, faux plants don’t bear a stigma anymore. In fact, there are realistic looking plants that can give you the look without the hassle…

OMG These Couples Share Their Biggest Cohabitating Tips

Is it just me or does it seem like everyone is talking about living with your significant other? Let me be more specific, I mean – everyone is giving unwarranted advice about living together. Sure there’s always “don’t go to bed angry”, but whether it’s too soon, too late, don’t live together until your engaged or don’t get married until you live together – everyone has something to say.But what about the people who are already doing it? When I’m looking for advice on how to ‘how to boil an egg’ or ‘what an IRA is’ – I’ll turn to my parents. When I want advice on millennial relationships, why not go straight to the source. I surveyed over 200 people and I’m here to share the best advice (or at least, the most interesting) advice from cohabitating millennials….

How To Pack For A Week In Just A Carryon

The second most common question that I get asked (we will get to the first another day) is how do I pack for week-long trips in just a carry-on. Our last trips to Paris and Thailand which were about 10 days each were both carry-on only and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m kinda a pro at the carry-on game. I think everyone becomes a pro after your first trip to Paris with your husband ends up with both of you with ZERO luggage for 8 days during Christmas because the airline lost your bags (more on that here). Since I hope you never have to go through that, here are a few of the things that I’ve learned along the way…

Barre Experts Explain How To Dominate Your First Class

One of the most challenging parts of starting a new workout is knowing what the heck to do. It’s nerve-wracking to be the new person a room full of people who know exactly what they are doing. One of the first studios I ever tried on Classpass was a Barre class. I didn’t know exactly what it was, but I knew that it was the hot, new trend – like Yoga in the early 2000s. But I remember being mortified not knowing what I was doing. What are sticky socks? What the F is tucking? Why don’t I feel like an elegant ballerina? & Why the hell do these two-pound weights hurt…

Undeniable Secrets To Skin That Glows

Whether or not spring fever has you headed to the beach or heads down in your work, we all are craving that sun-kissed glow. As someone with medium skin, I’ve never been “pale” in the traditional sense. And in fact, I spent most of my life hiding from the sun because I tan so easily. Even with high SPF that my parents would force me…

BIBLE. This Dry Shampoo Kept My Hair Clean For An Entire Week

Some people are wine connoisseurs, others are ice cream aficionados, and my friends, I know my dry shampoo. I’ve tried over 30 brands in all formulas: the mists, the sprays, and my personal favorite- the powder. Each brand promises magical results, but often fall short of commercial quality hair: shiny, volumized, and blowing in the hypothetical wind. Lately, there’s only one brand I’ve been obsessed…

Is Premarital Counseling Really Necessary? An Expert Weighs In

Getting engaged can be one of the happiest times of your life. You are about to embark on an exciting journey filled with adventure, love, and quality time with your friends and family. While wedding planning can get the most of some couples, one thing that often flies under the radar is premarital counseling. We often think that counseling is something that you do when things don’t work out, but this type of therapy is actually beneficial before you tie the knot. Because the last thing you want to do is to say “I do…. I think?” Here’s what you need to know and what experts say…
