All The Gorgeous 2015 Oscar Dresses By Color

Duchess Kate and My Other Famous Pregnant Friends

Yet while much has been said on this topic, we seldom address the other side of this issue.Is it any wonder that social media feels like a competition? ...more

We both have a pretty low tolerance for crappy kids shows, and he assumed that MLP fell into that category. I'll be honest (as always)- at first glance, it seems like fluff. The big eyed, sickeningly sweet-voiced, dramatic cartoon would not have gotten approval from me had I not overheard an episode while shooting off an email....more
