Every year in the beginning of November, I start panicking about the upcoming holidays and all of the presents I need to get. I have a particularly large family with some especially difficult characters to buy for (and I can only purchase so many checkout aisle tchotchkes), so I usually find myself wandering the ravaged aisles of Target and Marshall’s on Christmas day looking for last-minute gifts. Not this year, my friends… not this year. Keep reading »
It’s official: Taylor Swift’s ’1989′ has become the first million-selling album this year.
Just last week, the pop star sold 1.287 million copies of 1989, making it the first album released this year to pass the million sales mark, and the year’s second-highest seller overall, just underneath the Frozen soundtrack, which was released in 2013.

I’m sorry, but when I walk into a nail salon and they ask me what kind of color I’m looking for, I’m not going to say, “Oh, I’m looking for ‘DJ Play That Song’ or ‘Too Too Hot.’” Those are not colors. Those are ridiculous names for nail polish colors that have nothing to do with their hues. BUT, if I were to ask for a mani in “Play-Doh Green,” EVERYONE would know which green I’m talking about (though I would never ask for that color, because ew). Here are 10 nail polishes I’ve stumbled upon, and their suggested, more descriptive color names.
Most Disney fairytales take place in a land far, far away, where fame doesn’t exist, Twitter is just a noise birds make and Lady Gaga is some royal who lives in a high castle beyond the hills. But thanks to DeviantArt artist Isaiah Stevens, now we can imagine what it’s like for some of our favorite Disney characters and villains to not only KNOW about the pop world, but transform into some of the biggest musical superstars of our time.
Maybe Pocahontas loves Britney Spears and Aladdin listens to Jay-Z when he’s getting ready to ride his magic carpet— we don’t know. But what I do know is that this art installation confirms that Disney’s next big hit should definitely include some kind of Beyoncé reference. Just imagine it: the Princess falls under a spell, is eventually found by Prince Charming who wakes her up with true love’s kiss, and she pops up wearing an “I woke up like this” T-shirt. Priceless.
Check out some of your favorite Disney characters in pop star garb, including Beyonce as Ursula, above…
We’ve all been there. A coworker asks you out to happy hour, which quickly turns into five hours, eight glasses of Pinot Grigio and absolute dread for the following morning.

Here are five easy beauty tips for concealing your hangover and helping you head out into the world fresh-faced, one very careful step at a time.
