When it comes time for me to clean my apartment, I have no patience, no desire and no idea where to start. I usually get as far as taking out a spray bottle of disinfectant and cleaning around the various piles of clutter that have accumulated, before becoming overwhelmed and sitting down for a snack, never to finish my task. When I recently found myself in this exact scenario, I turned the TV on during my snack break and started watching “Friends.” It was The One With The Chicken Pox, and Monica was obsessing over the way her boyfriend Richard made the bed. In life, we can all take some notes from Monica’s OCD ways when it comes to tidying up, because wouldn’t life just be nicer when our toilet paper is folded at the tip? Here are 14 of Monica’s anal retentive rules to remember next time you need to clean. Keep reading »
Every day, we’re bombarded with so many ideas about who we should be and how to look and act that we often lose sight of who we truly are. We all struggle with self-acceptance every once in a while, and need to remind ourselves to love who we’ve become. New York-based Creative Arts Therapist Mallory Denison says art can be therapeutic in helping people to become more compassionate with themselves, and ultimately with others. “People who work on tapping into their true, authentic selves may find themselves happier,” she explains. “Connecting inward is an absolutely core exercise for people who want to work on their self-esteem, self-worth, confidence and happiness.” Try one (or all!) of these simple art exercises to tap into the inner “you” and freely express who you are without fear of judgment. Have fun! Keep reading »
There’s something about studs that bring a wee bit of badass to whatever they adorn. While recently shopping around TJ Maxx for a loveseat, I stumbled upon some furniture and home accessories that I loved, and they all had one thing in common— studs. Whether they’re muted metallic or shiny and bright, studs are the perfect way to give your space an edgy, modern vibe. Flip through the gallery to see some studded furniture and embellished decor we love.
Warning: What you are about to see is equal parts hilarious and uncomfortable. YouTubers The Fine Bros have corralled a bunch of elders and forced them to watch the trailer for “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which left some squeamish and others completely intrigued. My favorite commentator is the lady who refers to the movie subject as “the s-word” (because apparently saying ‘sex’ is filthy?) and the dude who says he’ll go see the movie because “when I saw that her mouth was taped, that was enough for me.” Just prepare yourselves to watch folks your grandparents’ ages talking about getting it on, and enjoy.

Al Ferguson, the proud new father of a baby boy, is ready for whatever parenthood throws at him— or in this case, whatever bodily fluids spew at him.
While cradling naked baby Ted for a newborn portrait session with photographer Christy Grant, Al was in for quite the messy surprise. “As I felt his stomach tense, in the back of your head you know he’s about to go poo, and then before you know it, he’s doing it.” AND DOING IT, HE WAS. Somehow Christy managed to capture the “money-shot” just as Ted was relieving himself in a very big way. Keep reading »
