Don’t Be The Pregnant Woman Who Takes Daily ‘Bumpies’ And Shares Them With All Your Friends

Don't Be The Pregnant Woman Who Takes Daily 'Bumpies' And Shares Them With All Your Friends

You can’t blame a woman for wanting to document her pregnancy. The epic changes her body goes through in such a short period of time are pretty unbelievable. We do have to admit that there are big-time over documenting offenders when it comes to sharing images of a growing bump, though. A pregnancy app that makes it easier to take daily photos and upload them to social media may just drive all your friends to drink, or at least make fun of you behind your back. More »

High School’s Sexist Dress Code Sends 200 Kids To Detention For Wearing Tank Tops

High School's Sexist Dress Code Sends 200 Kids To Detention For Wearing Tank Tops

A Staten Island high school’s strict dress code sent 200 teens to detention during the first two weeks of school, and most – of course – were girls. Tottenville High School recently changed their fashion rules to prohibit “tank tops, low-cut shirts, and shorts that don’t reach fingertip length,” reports Think Progress. Also fair game in their Dress for Success policy: “miniskirts, leggings, skinny jeans, headbands, halter tops, sweats, hats, hoodies [and] sunglasses.”

Headbands. Seriously. More »

8 Signs That North West Is Currently Planning Her Escape From Kimye

8 Signs That North West Is Currently Planning Her Escape From Kimye

We’ve been joking for months that North West obviously wants to escape Kimye. In the very first photo we saw of her, she was reaching desperately toward the camera. Since then, she’s sported a sourpuss (aka an “angry Kanye face”) in every photo. You can just see the wheels turning in her brain, seeking out the nearest exits and contemplating the perfect time to run. More »

Used Clothes Are Cheaper — And Better — For My Kids

Used Clothes Are Cheaper -- And Better -- For My Kids

In the fifth grade, one of my classmates came up to me and said, “No offense, but why do you always wear the same clothes?” The short answer was that my family was cheap and that my grandmother had made the majority of my wardrobe, which numbered about six pieces of coordinating skirts and tops. Looking back on this moment (which marked my hatred of people saying “no offense” and then being offensive), I’m proud of my response: “Because I really like them.” More »

What Parents Really Do When The Kids Finally Go To Sleep

What Parents Really Do When The Kids Finally Go To Sleep

It starts out innocently enough. You’re sitting in the dark, trying to think soothing thoughts and project them out of your body. You’re daydreaming about the half glass of wine you had three days ago. You’re pouring a mental 40 on the floor for the version of you who would have been drinking craft cocktails in the West Village until 2 a.m. and still have time to apply liquid eyeliner before work the next day just a couple short years ago. And then it happens … the kid’s eyes are closed. Time. To. Party. More »

Halloween Is Already Stressing Me Out

Halloween Is Already Stressing Me Out

It’s September, and that means it’s time to start thinking about Halloween. The stores are loaded up with their Halloween supplies and I am wondering how much longer I can put off dealing with discussions of costumes, candy, and everyone’s favorite game called “How many more days is it until Halloween? Is it still the same number of days as it was this morning? Ok. How about now? And what about tomorrow?” More »

This Style Expert’s Baby Announcement Is So Perfect That It Will Melt The Iciest Of Hearts

This Style Expertâs Baby Announcement Is So Perfect That It Will Melt The Iciest Of Hearts

Maybe I’m just a cynical old broad, but I’ve never been into those cheesy proposal videos where dudes, like, make all their girlfriend’s family participate in flash mobs, or those memes where people announce the birth of their baby with some kind of clever photo. I never expected to see a “hey look, I’m pregnant!” post on social media that wouldn’t make me cringe at least a little bit… but I guess I underestimated Taylor Tomasi Hill. The fashionable Instagram star recently surprised her 95,000 followers with a baby bump photo cute enough to melt my rock-hard icy heart. And that’s saying something. More »

Charles Barkley’s Claim That “Every Black Parent In The South” Whups Their Kids Is Offensive And Wrong

Charles Barkley's Claim That "Every Black Parent In The South" Whups Their Kids Is Offensive And Wrong

Former basketball star Charles Barkley was on the NFL preview show this weekend to discuss football because…well, we’re not sure why, as he’s not a football player. But he is a dude who often says controversial things, which is why a conversation about the recent Adrian Peterson abuse charges took a turn for the WTF real fast. More »

Kristen Wiig And Ellen Finally Get Around To Singing ‘Let It Go,’ And It’ll Be Your New Favorite Version

Kristen Wiig And Ellen Finally Get Around To Singing âLet It Go,â And Itâll Be Your New Favorite Version

Well guys, I hate to break it to you, but apparently celebrities really aren’t just like us. You know how I know that? Because Kristen Wiig and Ellen DeGeneres have somehow lived the past ten months of their lives without having “Let It Go” stuck in their heads on a loop. In fact, they don’t even know any of the words besides “let it go.” Not even “conceal, don’t feel” or “a kingdom of isolation.” So during Kristen’s appearance on Ellen’s show, they decided to finally emerge from beneath their cozy rocks and sing a rousing rendition of the song — while reading the lyrics, of course.
