Now This Is A Gorgeous Royal Family Photo

Kanye, Kim and North may have been photographed by Annie Liebowitz for the pages of Vogue, but I’d argue that this photo of Prince William, Duchess Kate Middleton, Prince George and dog Lupo is just as stunning, if not more so.

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either.

Leighton Meester Dares To Cover Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” And It’s Actually Really Good

I am always weary when anyone covers a Stevie Nicks song — especially when it’s a celebrity who is not known for being a singer. Naturally, I was ready to hate Leighton Meester and Dana Williams’ version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” but remarkably, I didn’t. Williams, whose EP The Lonely One is now available on

“Lulu’s Anal Bleaching For Kids” Is Not An Appropriate WiFi Name

The world is divided into two types of people: those who name their wireless networks and those who don’t. Those in the former group (I’m in the latter — mine is A104 because I’m lazy) tend to go with something witty like NOFREELOADERSALLOWED or something personal like AMISWIFI.
