Motherhood Changed The Way Kim Kardashian Approaches Her “Work”

“I took a hiatus after I had the baby and found it challenging to start working again because I didn’t want to spend any time away, but you adjust and prioritize and just figure it out! … It is an adjustment trying to balance a career and motherhood for sure, but the key is to prioritize. You become more selective and work on projects that are so meaningful because you want every other waking moment spent with your family. You have to remember though to make time for yourself. If you feel good, you will be happy in your career and family life and everyone is happy!”

Okay, I am truly not trying to be facetious when I say this, but what exactly is Kim Kardashian‘s “work”? I genuinely want to understand. Does she mean filming her show? Or does she have a job I don’t know about? This was her response when the schmancy mom blog Romy and the Bunnies asked the dreaded “balancing work and parenthood” question (which I’m pretty sure is no one is asking Kanye West). Kim did, however, share with the blog that her favorite thing to do with little North West is take naps. Apparently, they “cuddle and fall asleep holding each other. It’s my favorite time just snuggling with her.” Aww, Kim, sometimes you can actually be pretty sweet. [Romy And The Bunnies via People] [Image via Fame/Flynet]

Ryan Gosling Tried To Kick Rachel McAdams Off “The Notebook”

  • Mind. Blown. According “The Notebook” director Nick Cassavetes, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams didn’t get along during the movie’s filming, and Ryan even tried to have another actress brought in to read lines with him off-camera during a scene. He claimed he and Rachel didn’t have any chemistry (even though they ended up dating for years after the movie’s release). Allie and Noah’s on-again, off-again hysterics in the movie suddenly make way more sense. [Daily Mail UK]

Kickass Woman Of The Day: The Navy Just Got Its First Four-Star Female Admiral

Kickass Woman Of The Day: The Navy Just Got Its First Four-Star Female Admiral

In its 236 years of existence, the U.S. Navy has never had a female four-star admiral — until now. Vice Admiral Michelle Howard was just promoted to an admiral and is now the Navy’s new vice chief of naval operations, which is the branch’s number two position. (The Air Force and the Army have both named women as four-star officers in the past.) As if Howard weren’t already enough of a badass, she was also the first Black woman to command a Navy ship.

landfill 070214

I have a pretty hardcore to-go coffee habit. Every time I buy coffee in a disposable paper cup (which is often), part of me cringes inside at the thought of it filling up a landfill. Obviously, this doesn’t stop me from buying it, which is part of why I’m telling you — to publicly guilt myself into bringing a reusable mug to Starbucks! The scary part is that there are thousands of people who feel the same way, and keep buying coffee anyway just like me. Fifty billion paper coffee cups end up in landfills every year, and that’s just in the U.S.!

Most paper coffee cups are made from a combination of cardboard and very thin plastic to keep the drinks warm and prevent sogginess. Unfortunately, this also deems them not recyclable because the two materials are impossible to separate — a fact many coffee drinkers don’t realize. Shouldn’t we have a more eco-friendly solution for something that’s consumed by so many people every morning? Keep reading »

These Yoga Pants Are Specially Designed For Going Commando

Yoga pants just got even comfier — now you can buy a pair with built-in underwear. Julie Sygiel of the Dear Kate lingerie line got so sick of worrying about panty lines, chafing and period mishaps that she created a line of yoga pants that allow women the ”freedom to go commando.” When one of Sygiel’s friends suggested she try exercising without underwear, she loved how much more, well, uninhibited she felt. Unfortunately, she realized pretty quickly it wasn’t gonna fly with her super thin leggings in yoga class, which is when she set out to create her own.

The pants have a built-in panty liner made from a breathable fabric called “Underlux” that takes the place of regular underwear. They also have magic seams inside that somehow prevent any accidental reveals, and are made in the USA. Keep reading »
