Burt Reynolds Charmed Everyone Except Maybe Burt Reynolds

Ron Eisenberg/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty

The mustache, the smirk, the dimples, and the apple-seed eyes—these 8 x 10 glossy attributes were the late Burt Reynolds’ impish stock and trade. He was a man’s man and a ladies man. He was even a hero to kids (he never cursed in films) as “Bandit” with his bitchin’ Trans Am in the Smokey and the Bandit trilogy. He was, in short, a one-size-fits-all movie star straight out of old Hollywood.

Like those stars from Hollywood’s golden age, he had a career that spanned decades (he was funny, he was charming, and given the chance he could act—see Deliverance, or Boogie Nights). He also had a not-very-private private life that would titillate tabloid readers for years. But somewhere along the way, he seems to have grown tired of it all. Maybe the good parts dried up. Maybe he got tired of answering the same questions, because while the interviews kept coming, the charm went missing. As the decades rolled on, he sounded more and more like a grumpy old man telling the world to get off his lawn. He became, as he confessed in late-life interviews, an asshole.

Millennials reading about him today might easily have no idea why there was a time when men, women, and children adored him. Which is too bad, because if he was an asshole, he wasn’t always an asshole.

Stop Holding Out for a Hero Because it’s This Theatrical Young Soccer Fan Everyone Loves

Another weekend, another legend born.

A hammy young soccer fan has made the absolute most of his fifteen minutes of fame as Marseille’s football team played against Rennes at the Orange Vélodrome stadium in southeastern France on Sunday.

The young Marseille fan was just supposed to do the ceremonial kickoff, according to ESPN. But he decided to run the length of the pitch and bury the ball in the net. And that’s before he really milked the moment.

Cameras captured the young boy’s hammy victory lap as the confident kid pulled numerous moves usually reserved for actual players in the game.

There he was tearing off his jersey, knee sliding on the turf, stretching out his arms, and beaming a million-watt smile directly at the camera.

The surprising moment made the crowd go absolutely wild, and it played well online too.

From the video of the adorable moment, it is obvious that the show was officially stolen and in possession of this up and coming soccer star.

He is also clearly a three-sport athlete who went above and beyond the French Ligue 1 ceremonial kickoff tradition. Specifically, he shows a lot of potential in the three athletic feats of goal scoring, jersey removal, and knee sliding.

See him show off below.

Everyone Gets Free Soft Pretzels This Monday at Philly Pretzel Factory


Every year, I look forward to National Pretzel Day just as much as Stanley looks forward to Pretzel Day on “The Office.” Maybe it’s because my family’s weekend tradition was going to the mall just for something to do, and stopping for soft pretzels was always part of the plan.

And freshly made soft pretzels are even better when they’re free. This Monday, we can all enjoy a free soft pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory.

How to Get a Free Pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory This Monday

Jessica Gray is an editorial assistant at The Penny Hoarder. She once celebrated quitting a horrible job by stopping by the mall for a soft pretzel before heading home to watch “Office Space.”

Bow Wow

Bow Wow must be feeling a ways about Tekashi69 coming for his title of the biggest troll in Rap. Today (July 30), the artist who wants you to call him Shad took to Twitter to let fans know he was tired of the hate, is giving away all his hard-earned money and barked on bloggers.

Apparently, Bow was upset because a random fan accused him of cheating on his girlfriend.

Says the Rap-Up:

It all started when a Twitter user accused him of cheating on his girlfriend, Kiyomi Leslie. Bow fired back, tweeting, “Bitch get the f*ck off our timeline. U live in nyc! Dont be tweeting my wife that dumb ass sh*t. For you get your f*cking block knocked off. Die slow bitch.”

The Twitter tirade continued. “Im tired of you dusty ugly BITCHES. Im not the one!” he said. “I will go to jail over mine think im f*cking playing. U ugly broke dirt around the neck ass bitches. Leave US THE F*CK ALONE. and i say this with LOVE.”

Of course, Bow Wow deleted the tweets, but this is the Internets…

Instagram Photo

 

Also, he said he was planning on giving away his money and possessions, and maybe getting a gig at GameStop.

Instagram Photo

 

First off, Twitter is keenly aware that this is Bow Wow.

But, some people are claiming to have received money from Bow Wow this Cash App. Good luck with that.

Instagram Photo

 

However, it does seem like Bow Wow has a therapist, and that’s a good things.

He did come for bloggers, though.

 

 

Needless to say, Twitter is going in with the slander because, it’s always a good day to slander Bow Wow. Just saying.

SPECIAL TIP UPDATE!

Everyone Who Survived the ‘Westworld’ Season 2 Finale

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Westworld episode “The Passenger.” Proceed with caution.

Just when you think you have a grasp of the timeline and story in Westworld, the series puts out an episode like “The Passenger.” The 90 minute Season 2 finale delivered some of the show’s craziest twists to date. It wrapped up ‘The Door’ storyline and in doing so introduced a whole new batch of questions including — once more — who is and isn’t a host. In a season with an already high body count, the biggest question is who made it out of the finale alive. So let’s take a look at everyone who survived the Westworld Season 2 finale.

Dolores


Dolores in the Westworld season 2 finale

Season 2 saw Dolores go from farmer’s daughter to the leader of the robot rebellion. Her goal wasn’t just for the hosts to live inside the park without humans, she wants to take over the real world. (Because what’s real to Dolores is “That which is irreplaceable.”) Bernard didn’t like this plan and shot Dolores to stop her. However, Bernard also took Dolores’ pearl and put it inside another body that he had created — one that looks like Delos executive Charlotte Hale. This allowed Dolores to escape the park and safely end up on the mainland. The world better watch out!

Status: Alive

Bernard


Westworld Bernard

Alongside Dolores, Bernard is the key architect to the season finale. It is he who decided that the hosts were worthy of living and should be spared. This is why he eventually brought Dolores back to life after killing her. She is their only hope for a future. Bernard ended the season alongside Dolores at Arnold‘s house in the real world. Despite saving her life, Bernard still doesn’t trust Dolores and promises to prevent her from ending the human race.

Status: Alive

Maeve


Westworld Shogun World Maeve

Maeve’s storyline this season had her searching for her daughter Anna. They were reunited briefly in “Phase Space“, before being torn apart once more. In the finale Maeve and Anna came face to face again, this time with Anna seemingly remembering her mother. Maeve sacrificed herself for her daughter, holding off the fighting hosts who had been controlled by Clementine before being gunned down by QA. However, her death was not in vain. Anna (and her other mother) escaped to the paradise of Eden.

Status: Dead*

While Maeve is dead for now, we did see Dolores leaving the island (as Charlotte) with a bag of host brain pearls. We don’t know exactly whose they are, but one of them could potentially be Maeve. Fingers crossed.

Teddy



In the penultimate episode, “Vanishing Point “, Teddy committed suicide, destroyed because of what Dolores had made him become. However, in this episode we saw that Dolores removed the pearl inside his head and uploaded him to Eden. Despite the terrible things she had done to him, at least he can now rest in peace. Farewell, Theodore.

Status: Eden

Akecheta


Westworld Ghost Nation Akecheta

Akecheta did what he promised: he brought his people to Glory and protected Maeve’s daughter in the process. After escorting Anna and her other mother through The Door, Akecheta was able to enter Eden himself. There, in the most touching scene of the episode, he is reunited with his lost love Kohana.

Status: Eden

Clementine


Westworld-Season-2-Clementine

Clementine had a rough season. She was reprogramed with the same abilities as Maeve and was able to control the other hosts to do her bidding. Charlotte used this power to control Clementine to make the hosts attack each other. Clementine prevented  a large number of hosts from getting through the Door into Eden before she was gunned down by Armistice.

Status: Dead

Hector, Armistice, & Hanaryo


Westworld_Finale_Armistace

Hector, Armistice, and Hanaryo became faithful allies to Maeve in the search to find her daughter and the battle of the hosts vs. the humans. They fought by her side until the very end, taking down the hosts controlled by Clementine. However, all three were eventually overpowered by the angry hosts and died from their injuries.

Status: Dead

Elsie Hughes


Westworld Elsie Hughes

After being knocked out and stranded in a cave by Bernard, things were finally looking up for Elsie. The two were working together to get to the Valley Beyond — until Bernard abandoned her once more. Elsie finally returned to the Mesa and the other humans, only to be killed by Charlotte Hale. Hale had a plan for Westworld, one she knew Elsie would not go along with because of her good nature. Rather than letting the tech stop her, Hale ruthlessly shot Elsie while Bernard watched helplessly.

Status: Dead

Charlotte Hale



As the executive director of the Delos board, Charlotte is a key figure in Westworld. It was her plan to mine the data from the guests in the park which made her stop at nothing to get the information off the island. Bernard knew she was the key to saving the hosts because of her position of power. He built a host body that resembled Charlotte and puts Dolores’ pearl inside of he, giving her new life. Dolores then shot and killed the real Charlotte so no one knows she is a copy. Trippy, right?

Status: Dead

Lee Sizemore



Lee has been changed by his time spent in the park with Maeve. He now feels empathy for the hosts and knows what they are capable of. In order to protect Maeve and the rest of her friends, Lee sacrificed himself, distracting the QA team sent to take the hosts down. His ending is a true hero’s death as he recited the lines he wrote for hosts like Hector. He went out in a true blaze of glory.

Status: Dead

Ashley Stubbs


Westworld Stubbs Season 2 Luke Hemsworth

Stubbs isn’t just alive — he’s also secretly a host disguised as the head of park security in Westworld. His main drive is to protect the other hosts, something he continued to do by letting Dolores (as Charlotte) escape the park. He was last seen on the beach facilitating clean up and basically letting Dolores know she’s no longer his problem.

Status: Alive

Felix & Sylvester


Westworld Felix

Techs Felix and Sylvester survived the season after being dragged through numerous parks by Maeve. At this point they’ve stayed with her out of a combination of fear and loyalty. The pair were last seen on the beach also helping clean up the dead hosts. They were tasked with looking for any hosts that might be able to be salvaged — and both looked towards Maeve’s body lying in the sand.

Status: Alive

William


Westworld_Finale_MIB

Somehow, despite multiple injuries, the Man in Black has survived the season and beyond. William’s hand was severely injured when his gun backfired from Dolores’ damaged bullet. The evacuation team found William and brought him to the beach where he was “critical”, but still alive. The post credit scene for the episode showed William in what appeared to be the future, in a destroyed version of the Forge. Whether he’s a human or a host — or something more — is yet to be seen, although he appears to be a host.

Status: Alive

With a such large body count, the cast of Westworld is bound to look different in Season 3. Many of the key humans are dead or disguised as someone else. Will the show introduce new characters? Are there still some hosts hidden among those we believe are human? With this show anything is possible.

Were you surprised to see so many people die during this episode? Were you surprised to see everyone who survived the Westworld Season 2 finale? Let us know your thoughts and reactions on social @getFANDOM.

Westworld will return for Season 3.

Everyone Is Cheering for These Japanese Soccer Fans Who Cleaned Up the World Cup Stadium

Tuesday’s World Cup match between Japan and Colombia may have gotten a little dirty, but the stadium was left spotless.

Even after Japan came out on top 2-1 in a stunning win, several Japanese fans stayed behind to pick up litter left behind at the stadium, BBC reports.

Videos on social media show fans equipped with trash bags sweeping through the rows collecting plastic waste left on the stadium grounds.

Internet users praised the Japanese fans for bringing their manners to the pitch.

Japanese audience members earned similar accolades back in 2014 at the World Cup in Brazil, where some were spotted picking up their own trash after the Japanese team lost to the Ivory Coast 2-1.

Jay-Z and Beyonce Pulled the Ultimate Power Couple Move and Surprised Everyone With a New Album

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jay-Z and Beyonce are keeping up a family tradition, dropping a surprise album before anyone knew it was coming.

The couple released a joint album that touches on the rapper’s disgust at this year’s Grammy Awards and features a shout out from their daughter Blue Ivy to her siblings.

The nine-track album “Everything Is Love” dropped Saturday on the Tidal music streaming service that Jay-Z partially owns.

The album features Beyonce rapping on songs more than she has done on previous releases.

One song that has a profanity in its title includes Jay-Z lashing out at the Grammys. He was the top nominee at February’s awards show, but left empty-handed.

The rapper also says he turned down the NFL Super Bowl halftime show, rapping that the league needs him more than he needs them.

Blue Ivy ends the song “BOSS” with a shout-out to her 1-year-old brother and sister, Rumi and Sir.

In 2013, Beyonce released the self-titled album “Beyonce” without any notice.

Everyone Wins Thanks to LeBron James’s Game-Changing Reaction to J.R. Smith’s NBA Finals Mistake

The basketball world was shook to its core Thursday night thanks to Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals. But judging by his facial expressions, there was no one more thrown by the game’s rollercoaster ending than LeBron James himself.

After putting on a performance for the ages in the Cleveland Cavaliers first post-season outing against the Golden State Warriors, LeBron watched on in horror as J.R. Smith squandered the final seconds of regulation by taking an offensive rebound out past the 3-point line without calling time. The tied game was sent into overtime and the Cavs went on to lose 114-124.

But LeBron’s torment didn’t stop there. As is nearly always the case with devastating sports twists, the Internet couldn’t resist making a meme out of the moment. After a photo emerged of James throwing his arms up in disbelief at Smith’s mistake, Twitter was quick to take advantage of the opportunity to crack some jokes.

Late last year, Apple admitted that it has been throttling performance on older iPhones with worn-out batteries. The admission won Apple a legion of bad press and enough lawsuits to keep its legal department in fancy cars for the next decade. Since then, Apple has mostly appeased its customer base with a discounted iPhone battery replacement plan, some promises to be nicer, and the requisite CEO prime-time soul-searching interview.

But Apple’s problems aren’t over. BBC’s Watchdog program, one of TV’s longest-running consumer advocate programs, aired a deep dive into Apple’s battery replacement program this evening, and the results aren’t exactly glowing for Apple.

The system-wide dark mode everyone wants on the iPhone is finally coming… to Macs

macOS dark mode

After revealing that iOS 12 will support the iPhone 5s earlier today, 9to5Mac has returned with another surprise. While poking around in the WebKit source code (which is the engine that power Safari), the site stumbled upon an intriguing piece of code that seems to imply that Apple will be adding a system-wide dark mode to Mac.

As 9to5Mac explains, new code implemented into WebKit in March indicates that Apple will introduce an official dark mode in macOS 10.14, which will be the next major release of the operating system after High Sierra. The code that 9to5Mac discovered “is designed to adapt WebKit’s rendering of a website based on the effective appearance of the application.” This could allow macOS to change the look of UI components across the system.

Everyone is Talking About These Denim Bustiers in Paris

It seems like everything Virgil Abloh does garners a buzz, and perhaps the buzziest look from his Off-White show in Paris was a bustier top and matching mini shorts dreamed up in pale blue tapestry denim that Bella Hadid wore to open the show. With a crisp white button-down top tucked underneath, it’s a styling trick we’re sure to see repeated everywhere soon. And the theme of the show? “West Village,” which Virgil Abloh attributes to Sex and the City and a present-day version of Carrie Bradshaw as his muse. And we can certainly envision Bradshaw walking down Bleecker Street in the very bustier, short shorts, and button-down top Hadid wore—perhaps with the boots swapped out for heels.

Chrissy Teigen Reveals the Baby Name Everyone Suggests for Her Son

As you probably already know, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend will soon be a family of four, as Teigen is currently expecting her second child, a baby boy who will join older sister Luna. Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Teigen revealed that she is due in June but doesn’t have a name picked out yet.

She did, however, say that everyone suggests naming her son J.J. or John Jr.—but Legend isn’t into the idea. “Everyone’s like, ‘Why don’t you do the J.J. thing, John Jr.?’” Teigen said on the show. “But John and his ego, he was like, ‘I don’t want him to feel like he has to live up to that.’”

“And I was like, ‘Wow, you are a jerk,’” she joked on the show. “Sorry, heaven forbid he do what you do. So incredible.” She went on to say that picking out a boy’s name is “really tough,” and she worries she won’t be able to settle on one. DeGeneres, of course, had some funny ideas—watch the clip below to hear them.

Viacom will launch its own streaming service as everyone ditches cable

Best cord-cutting alternatives: Comedy Central streaming

If you thought the rapid demise of cable bundles was going to mean simpler TV packages and cheaper entertainment, Viacom has some bad news for you. The network, which owns channels like Comedy Central, MTV, and Nickelodeon, has announced that it will launch its own direct-to-consumer streaming service by September 2018, complete with “tens of thousands of hours of content,” adverts, and yet another line item on your credit card bill.

Viacom has hinted that it’s thinking about its own streaming service before, but likely emboldened by services like Amazon Prime Video and Disney’s soon-to-come cord-cutting bundle, Viacom CFO confirmed the plans and gave us a firm launch date on the company’s Q4 2017 earnings call.

Stuff We Liked That Everyone Else Seemed to Hate in 2017

The following are the movies, games and TV shows that people seemed to hate this year, but which the editors and contributors here at FANDOM loved. Or at least liked a fair bit. So we’re making the case for the world giving them a second chance.

Transformers: The Last Knight – Kim Taylor-Foster



The Transformers franchise gets a rough ride. It seems everyone loves to hate Michael Bay’s brash, action-heavy sequels. But while the second and third films left a lot to be desired, since Mark Wahlberg joined, the franchise has upped its game.

In 2017, the fifth and latest entry hit screens – Transformers: The Last Knight. And it had everything. And by everything, I mean EVERYTHING. Giant robots fighting? Check – but that’s a given. What it also delivered was an imaginative take on the King Arthur legend, Optimus Prime turned bad, and Anthony Hopkins. Yes, ANTHONY HOPKINS. Playing an eccentric aristocrat with a bunch of Transformers on the staff, who’s also concealing the secrets of the Transformers’ past.

The Last Knight is a hell of a ride. It’s a super-camp, self-referential, tongue-in-cheek send-up of genre filmmaking, that’s as fond of its formula as it is willing to poke fun at it. In short, it’s enormous fun.

Mass Effect: Andromeda – Jack DeVries



Don’t get me wrong, Mass Effect: Andromeda is not on par with the original trilogy, but to hear some talk about it you’d think the game retroactively murdered all your favorite characters. While the reboot of this beloved franchise stumbled, I still found myself engrossed with this new story in the Mass Effect universe. Plus, credit to Bioware for listening to fans and making changes to the game post-release, and by “listening to fans” I of course mean “adding new aliens for my character to take to bed” because, let’s be honest, that’s a HUGE part of Mass Effect.

xXx: Return of Xander Cage – Eric Fuchs



xXx: Return of Xander Cage assumes the world was begging for more Xander Cage. Well, Xander Cage is not Indiana Jones, and his movie was a mediocre Fast and the Furious knock-off from 2002. And yet, xXx is so insistent that Vin Diesel’s extreme sports hero is the coolest thing ever that it even had me convinced. It’s the kind of movie where the characters somehow surf on motorcycles. Especially great is Donnie Yen as the villain who steals Xander Cage’s show. Return of Xander Cage is not a smart movie, but it is a fun one.

Iron Fist – Lauren Gallaway



Iron Fist debuted this year to very lacklustre reviews. The show was already considered a failure before the episodes streamed. When I heard of an underdog like that, I naturally wanted to root for it, so when I watched the series I went in with a very open mind. I liked the show right away. I thought the first two episodes, which showed Danny’s parents death and his subsequent PTSD, was a powerful portrayal of a mental health issue rarely shown in superhero fiction. As the show progressed I related to his monastic lifestyle and his gradual reentry in the world. I enjoyed Danny’s charisma and his pursuit of the truth. Iron Fist’s supporting cast was also fantastic. Both newcomer Jessica Henwick and seasoned actress Rosario Dawson had powerful presences in the series and Wai Ching Ho stole every scene she was in.

The Book of Henry – Chris Tilly



Book of Henry was savaged by critics and failed spectacularly at the box office. Yet while the film has its problems, in terms of some painful dialogue and jarring tonal shifts, there’s also lots to like. The story of a kid’s efforts to rescue his next door neighbour from abuse, it tackles a dark subject in whimsical fashion, which doubtless put many off. But I found Colin Trevorrow’s film to be brave, ambitious and ballsy. Jaeden Lieberher delivers a terrific central performance, while if you embrace the conceit, the film’s final few scenes pack a genuine emotional punch.

9 Cheap(ish) Basics That Everyone Talks About

Most of us would agree that when it comes to our wardrobe, it’s important to strive for diversity, with investment pieces that will last for years and trendier pieces that you probably opted not to blow an entire paycheck on. But when it comes down to it, most fashion girls’ closets probably consist of mainly cheap(ish) pieces.

There aren’t really cut-and-dried parameters that constitute what’s considered cheap and what’s considered expensive, but generally speaking, much of the pieces in our wardrobes probably fall somewhere between $ 50 and $ 300, give or take. And it just so happens that many of the basics that people always talk about can be described as cheap(ish), including the world’s most flattering leggings and the new white tees celebs are obsessed with. Add any of these nine pieces to your wardrobe and not only will outfit-planning be magically easier, but also no harm will be done to your bank account. Ready to start telling everyone you know about these cheap(ish) basics?

Keep scrolling to shop them all!

We’ve tried a bunch of leggings, and the rumors are true about these Kendall Jenner–approved Alo leggings—they couldn’t be more flattering if they tried. They even come in different inseams, which is a rare feature for leggings to have.

Almost every time Everlane releases a new shoe style, it inevitably sells out—and very quickly at that. The Italian-made boots, flats, and heels are beautifully crafted and timeless.

Karla Welch’s collaboration with Hanes just came to be a few months ago, but it was a hit from the start. (Kaia Gerber and Karlie Kloss have been wearing it everywhere.) At just $ 30 a piece, we advise stocking up on the shirts.

Staying warm during the winter is of utmost importance, but almost as important is looking cool while you’re at it. Patagonia’s cozy yet lightweight puffers check both boxes.

There’s a reason Madewell’s jeans rack up a plethora of five-star reviews from shoppers: They’re affordable, on trend, and comfortable with a perfect fit. Find out for yourself if you haven’t already.

One-piece swimsuits are officially a thing again, and Solid & Striped is largely to thank for that. Good luck deciding on just one of its cool ’90s-inspired one-pieces to add to your collection.

NYC girls, especially, rave about Uniqlo’s line of Heattech layering tees. They come in a variety of colors, are slim enough to wear under a sweater, and truly keep you warm, despite being thin and breathable.

Los Angeles–based Dôen is a fashion-girl go-to for special sweaters that will actually make you wish for chilly temperatures. The brand teamed up with Reformation for an exclusive collection this fall, proving that it’s cooler than ever. The pieces are worth every penny.

M.Gemi refers to these pumps as the brand’s “signature, oh-so-walkable high heel.” In addition to the comfort factor, the not-too-low, not-too-high heel; reasonable price point; and color selection make these buzz-worthy.

The Sold-Out Blazer Everyone Asks Me About Is Coming Back

Confession: I write about how to shop celebrity outfits on a daily basis, but I rarely buy items I include in my own stories. About a year ago, however, Bella Hadid wore the perfect silky blue blazer, and I knew I had to have it. I immediately swiped up the House of Harlow 1960 Chloe Boyfriend Jacket ($ 198) and have worn it with countless outfits since, including with my go-to look: a band tee, jeans, and block heels.

Without fail, I get compliments every time I wear it, whether I’m at the doctor’s office or at a fashion event for work. It has the ideal oversize fit, a pretty sheen that mimics real silk, and an eye-catching blue color. Since it first launched over a year ago, it’s been sold out for a while. I recently noticed it’s getting restocked with a shipment date of November 10, so I knew I had to share the good news—you can thank me later.

Back to school is exciting for everyone except napping younger siblings

by

Laura Falin

posted in Life

A lot has changed in our house in the last three years. We’ve slowly moved out of baby-toddler mode and into actual big-kid mode. I’ve stopped carrying a diaper bag. We no longer have baby wipes in every room of the house. I even have a teenager (I almost have two). But one of the biggest game-changers has been that my youngest is now in school.

Do you realize what this means???

It means we no longer have to wake babies up from their naps and cart them, crying, to pick up their older siblings in the afternoons. For seven long years, I put babies and toddlers down for naps and prayed they’d sleep well and deeply until precisely 15 minutes before school got out when they’d wake up refreshed and happy. I did mental calculations — “If we eat now and get to bed, we have exactly enough time for a nap before we have to get back to school.”

Sometimes I’d decide to push through instead and have the younger kids nap after pickup, which meant they’d be up until one in the morning. Or worse, they’d fall asleep on the way to picking everyone up. I once heard comedian Ray Romano joke that he kept a squirt bottle in his glove compartment to shoot at his kids and keep them from falling asleep in the car and there were a few times I seriously considered it.

My husband’s job often allowed him to be home for school pickups, and I remember actually sobbing when he called to say he’d be late, and I’d have to wake the younger kids to go get their brother. Getting home from work 15 minutes late shouldn’t be a big deal, it really shouldn’t. But it’s a huge deal when that 15 minutes means the difference between happy, sleeping children and cranky, tired children getting dragged from their beds.

And you mamas in snowy, cold states where you must not only wake up sleepy toddlers but then bundle them up for the frigid walk to the classroom — I feel you. It’s the worst. Slippery and icy. Not stroller-friendly. Frickin’ cold. You rock.

So, while we’re mostly excited for the back-to-school season with its fresh pencils and new unmarked paper and friendly teachers and buddies, and all those things, I want you moms of sleeping babies to know I’m thinking of you. May your year be calm and your babies be sleepy at precisely the right time. You got this.

Do you have any tips for the afternoon pickup when kids nap?

For more kids’ activities and easy recipes, you can find Laura at Peace but not Quiet, and on Facebook and Pinterest.

Everyone Has a Story, Here’s How to Monetize It

unapologetic (Image: iStock/monkeybusinessimages)

 

Authenticity is the new currency in business so if you’re looking to advance your career—writing a book, landing speaking engagements, and coaching can take you to the next level. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Find and Master Your Story

 

Listen, there’s opportunity in crisis, complexity, and conflict.

  • Your pain is your purpose.
  • Your frustration is an opportunity to teach.
  • Your mess becomes your message to empower.

Consider the following questions as a storytelling guide:

  • Describe one challenge that you faced along your journey.
  • How did you overcome the challenge?
  • Describe your feelings during that time (e.g., confused, afraid, rejected, stuck, angry).
  • Turn your feeling and emotions into a teachable moment. Describe the moment when you realized it was time to change. Did you challenge any societal myths, misconceptions, or break any rules?
  • How can you help someone avoid the pain or disappointment you felt?
  • What are three lessons learned you can share from this experience?
  • Why is this message so important? What result or outcome can they expect?

Choose and Study Your Audience

 

When it comes to monetizing your message you want to get the right people talking about your content and sharing your story. Who are the people that will resonate with your story? What habits are holding them back from success?

Create a Compelling Story That People Can Embrace

 

Think, what problems can I solve for my audience? How can I weave tidbits of my experiences into a compelling narrative that grabs their attention, evokes their emotions and empowers them to take action?

Build Your Platform and Publish Free Content Consistently

 

Creating and sharing content consistently is the start of building trust with your audience and positioning yourself as an expert or influencer. Create a variety of shareable content such as how to’s, webinars lists, videos, ultimate guides, and memes. To speak to your audience directly, make sure you are capturing their email addresses on your website.

Package Your Story into Paid Products and Services

 

This may include, workshops, books, coaching and speaking engagements.

3 Reasons Why Everyone Should Have a Side Hustle

Should you dip your toes in entrepreneurial waters? Although it’s probably one of the hardest things you’ll ever do in your life, a side hustle or entrepreneurship may be the solution for three things most of us dread—being unemployed, broke, and in debt.

(Image: iStock/jezphotos)

 

K. Renee Ward, a former area sales manager turned marketing entrepreneur, recently wrote Straight Out of Corporate, a guide for someone who is ready create a game plan to make money at being their own boss.

Black Enterprise caught up with Ward to hear her insights on why everyone should have a business or side hustle.

(Image: File)

Everyone does not need to be a full-time entrepreneur, says Ward. But, everyone should definitely diversify their income sources. Here’s why:

-The climate in the job market is changing. Technology is rapidly replacing jobs and companies are coming up with innovative processes to replace the need for staff.

-No matter how you look at it, working for someone else caps your earnings; it is absolutely necessary to explore the opportunities to earn more as you climb the
corporate ladder.

-Owning your own successful business truly gives you an opportunity to build stable generational wealth. The way I see it, it’s a contribution to our African American communities.

So what now? Well, the good news is you don’t have to give up your day job to give entrepreneurship a try. BlackEnterprise.com has some actionable advice and tips for you to master the side hustle:

5 Dating Fears Everyone Has

As a dating mentor, I often hear from singles about the painful side of dating; the fears, the insecurities and the nagging voice inside each one of us that says, “You’re not good enough.” There are external fears that may have developed over the years. Maybe your mother, friend, matchmaker or random neighbor kept trying to set you up unsuccessfully and then blaming you when it didn’t work out. Your greatest fears may also come from within – your inner critic. “You aren’t doing what you should be doing, trying hard enough, or praying with enough intent. Otherwise, obviously, you would be married by now.”

Dating fears are normal and so are you! Let’s talk about some of the most common dating fears, and what you can do about them – starting now.

1. I’m never going to get married.

This fear hurts. It is the core of all the other fears. It has crossed the mind of virtually every person who has ever been hurt in the dating process. If you are like most singles, you aren’t married because you haven’t yet identified the right one. I’m confident you’ve been keeping your eyes open. While you may have had an expectation of when you wanted to get married, God has the master timeline. I don’t pretend to have an answer as to why you are not married yet. I can’t predict the future. What I do know is that God specifically prepares a match for each soul.

If you have the fear that you’ll never get married you’re in good company. Having not yet met the right one is pretty common these days. However, just because you haven’t met the right one doesn’t mean you won’t meet him or her and get married. Being single is your current situation, not your destiny. Now is the time to work on loving yourself. You are getting married, and you’ll need self-love and love-of-other to keep you married.

2. What if I have to settle?

Let’s define “settle.” Many singles think of settling as defeat or a concession to mediocrity. But settling can also mean adjusting your list of “absolute musts” that Mr. or Mrs. Right requires in order to merit consideration. Look at your list. Is it time to update or reprioritize? Certain qualities, like kindness, respect and loyalty, should never be considered unimportant. I am talking about the other bullet points, such as “well-traveled,” “has a PhD,” “wealthy,” “6’2” or “snappy dresser”… Just take a look. Settling may not mean what you think it means.

3. I’m not attractive/thin/wealthy/young/(insert your favorite self-criticism) enough.

God did not make you the way you were by accident. We know that God has an Ultimate Plan and that it is for the good. You were born at exactly the right moment, to precisely the right parents and unique circumstances to allow you to become the inimitable person reading this article. You are not only enough; you are just the way you are supposed to be in this moment. This doesn’t release you from the obligation to continue becoming who you need to be. Growth is good, but so is self-acceptance!

4. No one wants me.

Sit down in a quiet place and make a list of all the positive qualities, talents and skills that you have. Leave nothing out, big or small. Read this list twice daily, morning and evening, for a week. (Trust me and do this. It really makes a difference!) I hope you will realize that just as you have family and friends who love you and want to be around you, so too you will have a spouse who wants and loves you.

5. There must be something wrong with me.

Maybe there is something wrong, maybe not. Now is the time for some honest soul searching. Is there a negative character trait or two that you have always wanted to get rid of? If so, this may be the right time to do some spiritual housecleaning to make you into a better version of yourself.

We will never be perfect beings; we were created imperfect intentionally. So yes, there is something wrong with you, and with me too! You don’t have to be perfect to be married; you just need to be working on perfecting yourself. Those who are faced with a physical handicap, an emotional disorder or are a carrier of genetic disease face another hurdle: Realizing that what you have doesn’t define you. You are every bit as worthy!

Pay attention and notice what tales your inner storyteller is spinning. This is the same voice that tells you not to bother asking for that promotion because you won’t get it anyway, the same one that instructs you not to even try to reach your dreams. It is unlikely you would ever say these things to anyone else, yet you speak to yourself this way!

Where there is darkness, insert light. Fear and depression come to fill a hole inside us. Instead of fears, fill that hole with kindness and laughter. Fear overwhelms us when we neglect to appreciate the beauty in our lives. It’s true, you cannot control where, when and how you will meet the right one. You can, however, control how you spend your time until you meet your soul mate.

Live now. Be present. Be joyous. Be nice to yourself. Be the best version of yourself.

What have you found works to banish your fears? Comment below.

‘Cuddles for Cancer’ Teen Founder to Be Honored by Prince William and Prince Harry: ‘Everyone Needs a Cuddle’

When Faith Dickinson’s aunt was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, she knew what would bring her some comfort: a new blanket.

“She said she loved it because she got so cold during her treatments,” Dickinson, 14, tells PEOPLE.

Seeing the effect the simple gift had on her aunt Lyndi, and the tears of appreciation from a retiring fourth-grade teacher who received another blanket soon afterwards, made the teen from Toronto, Canada, realize the difference she could make.

“When my mom picked me up that day, I told her that I wanted to make everyone feel that good. Then we came up with Cuddles for Cancer,” she says.

Five years later, Dickinson has helped create 3,500 blankets.

Now, she is set to join 19 other young people from Britain and around the world being celebrated by Prince William and Prince Harry with a special Legacy Award. The honors at St. James’s Palace on Thursday were set up by the Diana Award charity in the name of their late mother Princess Diana, who died 20 years ago this August.

Dickinson’s initiative Cuddles for Cancer will mark its fifth anniversary on July 1 (the day that would have been Diana’s 56th birthday).

“Everyone needs a cuddle during the difficult times in their lives,” Dickinson says, adding that her blankets have been sent all across Canada, the U.S., the U.K., France, Brazil, Africa, Australia and Germany.

The teen also gives talks to schools, churches and businesses as she spreads the word. And she helps veterans and those struggling with what Prince Harry calls the “invisible wounds” of combat. Dickinson hopes to make them for those who are participating in Harry’s Invictus Games, which will come to her home city of Toronto in September.

“I have a special blanket that I make for Canadian soldiers and veterans. I send them to soldiers who are serving overseas or when they return home injured or suffering from PTSD,” she says.

Dickinson says she appreciates the humanitarian work that Diana did on behalf of several important causes.

“One thing she achieved was showing people that you won’t get AIDS by hugging or even touching someone with it,” she says. “She also tried to stop the use of all land mines because innocent people were dying or being terribly injured from just walking on them. I think that she was very brave and courageous to take action and use her fame to show people what’s right.”

Praising Diana’s sons, she adds, “I love how they aren’t just supporting a cause, but that they are sharing their personal experiences. It was really brave of them to share about what they went through when they lost their mom.”

Everyone Is Confused By This Student’s Prom Proposal Sign

Texas high school student Marlen Williams created a basketball-themed sign to ask his friend to the prom. He presented it to her with a toy basketball, she read the sign and, apparently, she said yes.

Williams shared the beautiful moment on his Twitter account on Monday. Happily ever after, right?

Wrong.

Twitter, being the cruel and fickle place that it is, pounced on Williams’ sign, claiming it was confusing, incoherent and disobeyed the laws of grammar. Hundreds of people took it upon themselves to tell him so.

“It’s crazy how viral something can get that’s unplanned,” Williams told The Huffington Post. “When I was making the poster, I never imagined all of this.”

Despite all the digital commotion, Williams’ sign does have a coherent and witty message. The words were just awkwardly placed.

The sign reads:

You’ll run the 1, I’ll be 2. I’d love to take a shot at prom with you. #12

It’s basketball jargon referring to players’ positions on the court, and Williams, a shooting guard for his school’s basketball team, was just being sweet. 

If you still can’t read it, helpful Twitter users photoshopped the sign so it would be easier to read.

Even though his sign was a tad bit jumbled, Williams can ignore all the internet trolls. After all, his date did say yes.

People Are Putting Makeup On Their Thighs. Is Everyone OK?

There are plenty of more pressing matters in the world to make sense of right now, but in the name of self-care, it’s important to ponder the “whys” of some smaller, non-sensical happenings on the internet. 

Like, for example, the fact that people have been painting full faces of makeup on their thighs, and sharing them on Instagram

Teen Vogue spotted a phenomenon of people applying makeup on their upper thighs, and a quick Instagram search shows people are doing the same on their upper arms, as well. 

There’s quite a bit of skill required to pull off some of these looks, but still ― we have to ask of the more than 1,000 Instagrammers who published arm makeup posts … why?

Perhaps it’s a way for makeup lovers to get their fix without piling makeup on their faces. Or, like the 100 layers videos and other odd beauty fads before it, perhaps the trend is just visually stimulating and fun to watch.

The Point That Everyone Is Missing With This Trump Photo Controversy

On Friday, the internet all but ecstatically quaked over side-by-side photos posted by Observer writer Dana Schwartz.

The image showed two photos of President Trump bidding farewell to the Obamas as they boarded a helicopter on their way out of the White House. Schwartz claimed that the new commander-in-chief’s hands had been digitally enlarged in the official White House version. 

Because she used two different photos that were taken from two different angles and distances, the original tweet wasn’t terribly convincing.

That didn’t stop the internet from becoming “CSI: Twitter.”

People used overlays and animations to prove or disprove the theory that the White House photo was doctored. In the end, though, it appeared not to have been altered, and the whole frenzy amounted to a silly internet brain fart. 

But isn’t this missing the point? 

Is this what American Photoshopping has amounted to? This isn’t Russia, where people photoshop tiny watches off wrists, nor is it North Korea, where the government adds missile capabilities it doesn’t have to appear more menacing.

This is America, motherf**kers. And American exceptionalism doesn’t stop at visual reality. 

Let’s say that, hypothetically, President Trump had his hands Photoshopped to appear bigger in photos. Is that the best we can hope for from our leaders?

We at HuffPost Comedy believe we can do a hell of a lot better to show the world how f**king great America is, both outside and in Photoshop.

Now this is more like the photos red-blooded Americans want to see hanging in the White House.

Why Smart Phones Are Driving Everyone Insane

2017-01-05-1483643814-5784134-SmartPhonesAreDrivingEveryoneInsaneHP.jpeg

There’s nothing worse than whipping out your smartphone during a meeting, and few things will turn someone off to you quite like a mid-conversation text message or even a quick glance at your phone.

Using your phone at inappropriate times annoys your boss and colleagues according to research from USC’s Marshall School of Business, and if you work with women and people over forty they’re even more perturbed by it than everyone else.

The researchers conducted a nationwide survey of 554 full-time working professionals earning above $ 30K and working in companies with at least 50 employees. They asked a variety of questions about smartphone use during meetings and found:

  • 86% think it’s inappropriate to answer phone calls during meetings
  • 84% think it’s inappropriate to write texts or emails during meetings
  • 66% think it’s inappropriate to write texts or emails even during lunches offsite
  • The more money people make the less they approve of smartphone use.

The study also found that Millennials are three times more likely than those over 40 to think that smartphone use during meetings is okay, which is ironic considering Millennials are highly dependent upon the opinions of their older colleagues for career advancement.

TalentSmart has tested the emotional intelligence (EQ) of more than a million people worldwide and found that Millennials have the lowest self-awareness in the workplace, making them unlikely to see that their smartphone use in meetings is harming their careers.

Why do so many people find smartphone use in meetings to be inappropriate? When you take out your phone it shows a:

  • Lack of respect: You consider the information on your phone to be more important than the conversation at hand, and you view people outside of the meeting to be more important than those sitting right in front of you.
  • Lack of attention: You are unable to stay focused on one thing at a time.
  • Lack of listening: You aren’t practicing active listening, so no one around you feels heard.
  • Lack of power: You are like a modern-day Pavlovian dog who responds to the whims of others through the buzz of your phone.
  • Lack of self-awareness: You don’t understand how ridiculous your behavior looks to other people.
  • Lack of social awareness: You don’t understand how your behavior affects those around you.

I can’t say I’m surprised by the USC study’s findings. My company coaches leaders using 360° assessments that compare their self-perception to how everyone else sees them. Smartphone use in meetings is one of the most common coworker complaints.

Bringing It All Together

It’s important to be clear with what you expect of others. If sharing this article with your team doesn’t end smartphone use in meetings, take a page out of the Old West and put a basket by the conference room door with an image of a smart phone and the message, “Leave your guns at the door.”

What do you think of smartphone use during meetings? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

Irina Shayk Surprised Everyone with Pregnancy News: ‘No One Suspected Backstage!’

Irina Shayk apparently kept her pregnancy under wraps— and extra fabric — during her spin on the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris on Wednesday.

A source who was backstage at the show tells PEOPLE most were unaware of Shayk’s bun in the oven.

“Looking back, some of her outfits were less revealing in the stomach and seeing the news after the show, it made sense,” the insider says. “No one suspected backstage, that’s for sure! She looked as beautiful as ever.”

The supermodel, 30, is expecting her first child with boyfriend Bradley Cooper, whom she has been dating since spring 2015. The happy couple have not been shy about their romance, regularly stepping out together on exotic trips and at fun events.

Everyone Is Sharing Michael Moore’s 5-Point ‘Morning After To-Do List’

The morning after Donald Trump became the U.S. president-elect felt like something of a hangover for millions of Democrats. With a Republican Senate and House of Representatives to boot, to say nothing of Supreme Court vacancies, many liberals were understandably depressed. 

Maybe that’s why documentary filmmaker Michael Moore’s five-point plan has been shared over 100,000 times since it was posted on Facebook Wednesday morning. It offers a blueprint for how Democrats can get back up and fight for their causes.

Below, you’ll find the plan in its entirety:

Morning After To-Do List:

1. Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably.

2. Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn’t let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must “heal the divide” and “come together.” They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.

3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn’t wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that’s about to begin.

4. Everyone must stop saying they are “stunned” and “shocked.” What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren’t paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all “You’re fired!” Trump’s victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that.

5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: “HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!” The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don’t. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he’s president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we’ll continue to have presidents we didn’t elect and didn’t want. You live in a country where a majority of its citizens have said they believe there’s climate change, they believe women should be paid the same as men, they want a debt-free college education, they don’t want us invading countries, they want a raise in the minimum wage and they want a single-payer true universal health care system. None of that has changed. We live in a country where the majority agree with the “liberal” position. We just lack the liberal leadership to make that happen (see: #1 above).

Everyone Is Mad at Beyoncé, But for the Wrong Reasons

Mondays tend to be disorienting enough. But the events that transpired in the pop culture sphere this week set a particularly confusing tone to the day, forcing innocent consumers to question their loyalties and even, shockingly, suspect that the media may in fact not have the purest of intentions.

The action actually began on Sunday, when an unlikely source fiercely declared herself as a feminist, taking to social media to unleash an impassioned essay regarding the media’s dehumanizing depiction of women as mere arm candy accessorizing the appendages of successful men. “I… do not. belong. to anyone. but myself. and neither do you,” she wrote, chastising media outlets for perpetuating stale double standards and explicit misogyny. She name-dropped the likes of Gloria Steinem, called out the injustice of female slut-shaming and beseeched young women to recognize their truth worth and inherent value.

Ariana Grande: badass feminist.

Color me old (it’s cool, I am, what with being over 30and all that), but I am not intimately familiar with the nuances of Grande’s public persona. Perhaps she’s long been hailed a feminist icon, and I’ve simply been in the dark, but her essay felt groundbreaking, if not a little shocking (in the best way possible) when it came across my feed yesterday morning. In the context of famous young women continuously denying their right (obligation?) to identify as feminists, Grande stood up loud and proud and sent an incredibly important message to her young, impressionable fans, and to women all around the world: the media is fucked up, and you deserve better.

With the unexpected arrival of this declaration, things started out well on Monday. But quickly took a turn. It was early yet — just after 8 a.m. — and the day was filled with so much promise. But then Beyoncé appeared on my television screen and spent the next several minutes extolling the benefits of a vegan diet. Not the health benefits or the environmental payoff, however. No, Beyoncé really just wanted viewers to know that veganism is how she triumphed over her body, achieving that fit, trim figure admired the world over, and that we can follow in her dainty footsteps — all for the price of one best-selling diet book.

That’s right, just as Ariana Grande — pop princess, wearer of cat ears — revealed herself to the world as a strong, self-possessed female standing up for the empowerment of other women and girls, Beyoncé — fierce, outspoken feminist, champion of equality — told us her secret to flatter abs.

It was a confusing day, indeed.

I experience an overwhelming, almost visceral sense of uneasiness when I morally disagree on any issue with Beyoncé. I’m a superfan. I worship at her altar. I drink the Bey Kool-Aid. And she’s given me good reason to do so: Besides being a mind-blowing performer and entertainer, she’s an activist, arguably doing more to further the conversation on equality than any celebrity with her expansive influence. She drops speeches on feminism from Nigerian writer Chimamamda Ngozi Adichie smack dab in the middle of radio-friendly tracks. She performs proudly on MTV in front of a towering backdrop boldly emblazoned with the word “FEMINIST.” She’s dominated a notoriously male-run industry, successfully standing atop her own empire and supporting women every step of the way.

So when she has a slip-up, I wince a little.

And I wasn’t alone yesterday. I was heartened to log into Facebook and see a trending news story regarding the outrage Beyoncé fans were expressing over her morning announcement. I felt validated to know that others stood up and took notice, calling out the hypocrisy and degradation of this impossibly strong female role model taking to the airwaves to shill out a diet book.

But I quickly learned the legions of angry Beyhive members weren’t up in arms over the decidedly disempowering move. They were pissed because they expected a bigger announcement.

In fairness, the irritation is understandable.”Good Morning America” teased the three-minutes-and-change segment as if the singer were about to unveil a new album, tour, baby, documentary series and cure for cancer, all in one breath. The endorsement of a diet book she’d already publicly supported for months felt underwhelming to some, and insulting to many.

But I have yet to see any ire over the endorsement itself. The fact that a woman who has stood for so much more substance has stooped to plugging diet advice. A woman who has taken on society’s soul-crushing, oppressive beauty ideals in her song “Pretty Hurts,” is advocating veganism as a vehicle for sustained weight loss. A woman with over 35 million Instagram followers and sold-out stadiums worth of male and female fans is using her platform to sheepishly confess, “I am not naturally the thinnest,” on national television and that she’s finally found a food plan that “keeps the weight off.”

This isn’t the Beyoncé I know, love and admire, and the stumble is hard to stomach. It would be a flat-out lie to deny the fact that much of her fame has undoubtedly been influenced by her iconic body. But the agency Beyoncé took in displaying, flaunting, concealing and using her body onstage and onscreen differentiated her from other female performers who have seemingly been positioned as scantily-clad puppets selling iTunes singles. Beyoncé owned her body in a way that felt powerful. And surrendering that power in order to promote a diet book doesn’t feel relatable or real; it feels weak.

I’m grateful for the empowering messages Beyoncé and women like her have fearlessly put forward in the name of feminism. And I’m happily surprised to find that others in the public eye like Grande are opting to own their feminist convictions and unapologetically stand for something more than their looks, weight, or carefully-contoured faces. I just hope Beyoncé doesn’t continue to disappoint — the world is confusing enough.

6 Empowering Mantras Everyone Should Try

We already know the incredible benefits of meditation, and using a mantra can be a simple, profound (and totally free) way to impact your meditation practice and overall life. These mantras are designed to help you tap into the potential of your true spirit, and to make your sense of self and happiness more abundant and easy to access.

HOW IT WORKS:

There are many myths behind chanting, but it is widely agreed is that the more you chant and repeat a phrase, the more it becomes a part of you. Chanting a mantra can redefine your inner monologue, which is why they are used for more severe mental conditions such as anxiety. The more you repeat (chant) the mantra, the more you reframe your thinking to abide by it, replacing the old negative message which used to repeat in your head with the new more positive one.

DIRECTIONS:

These mantras are especially powerful in the aim to live your best life. Chant them internally or out loud for 5-20 minutes a day. If you can’t do a full five minutes, start with two minutes, and finish with 2-3 more minutes later the same day.

Keep the positivity going: Pin them, tack them up around your bathroom mirror or desk, or make them your iPhone background so when you check the time, you see these as a sweet little love letter to yourself.

These mantras are part of an 11-Day Mantra Challenge; you can find the complete series here.

I will feed my soul, and allow it to bloom
I vow to feed my creativity, to fuel my curiosity. I vow to travel, to eat sweet treats and drink good coffee in the company of my fellow women. I vow to listen to inspiring music, to learn new skills and lessons and languages. I vow to dress up, to honor my body, to be sensual and loving. I vow to have fun dancing all night, and get rest taking glorious naps in the afternoon sun. I vow to drink more champagne and make more toasts with it. I vow to cook delicious meals for my family, to take my vitamins, to practice yoga whenever I feel like it. To speak kind words to myself. To indulge in new passions. And through it all, I vow to allow my soul to speak outwardly with excitement and abundant bliss. Because life is so short, and every day should be celebrated.

5 Things Everyone Should Know When First Diagnosed With Cancer

1. Do not read the Internet
There are many reasons I highly recommend not going to the Internet for answers, but the biggest one is that everybody’s experience with cancer is different. You will probably type on Google: “What is Hodgkin’s Lymphoma” and more than a million hits will appear. Eventually you will end up on a blog where someone tells you that the cancer you have is caused by something you did or didn’t do, is curable by doing something you’ve never heard of, or worse yet, told something so dire, it only serves to increase the sense of dread you are already feeling.

2. Ask questions
This is a far better solution than the Internet. When you have your first appointment with your doctor, ask him/her anything. If your doctor seems in a rush or doesn’t have time to answer your questions, then that is a good indication that maybe you need to get a new doctor. When first diagnosed, we (as cancer patients), are scared, vulnerable and often isolated. Our doctor is there to not only guide us, but our loved ones as well.

Have a list of questions. Have a family member or friend with you. Tape record the conversation. Anxiety will be high. It’s difficult to remember information when feeling anxious. Ask them anything because in most situations they will be more informative than the Internet, and should also be more reassuring. Your question could be as simple as “When do I start treatment?” Or as complicated as, “When should I start banking my sperm?”

3. Understand that there are no short-term solutions
As much as cancer sucks, you will not be better by tomorrow. Take a deep breath and try to take each day one step at time. Sounds cliché, but in reality that is the only way you will get through the hardest days. Giving yourself a goal (like getting back to work/school) is great, seeing that goal through is even better. Cancer is a diagnoses, not an identity conclusion. It is what you are battling, not who you are. Take a WIDE angle view of your life. It may be cancer for now, but it is not the story of your life, so don’t let cancer define you.

4. Enjoy the days when you feel good
Not every day is going to suck as a cancer patient. Yes, most will, but if you have chemo once every three weeks, most likely that second week you will start to feel more normal. So do normal things. Go to a concert, see a movie, go to a party (probably shouldn’t drink), but do things that will take your mind off of the hard situation you are in. If you have the ability to do fun activities in the midst of all the crap that you are or will be going through, then that will help you get through the tough days. It will also serve to remind you what you want to be getting back to when you are cancer-free!

5. Use the cancer card
No, I don’t mean like, “Hey guys. I have cancer, feel bad for me.” I mean like: apply for scholarships to help you or your family financially. There are many resources available. Be proactive with multiple websites that offer financial assistance (i.e., cuckfancer.org, hope4yawc.org, thesamfund.org). Be social. If you want to go out with your friends, drive yourself. And when you want leave because you aren’t having fun, no one will ever question why you are leaving. It’s okay to be a little selfish. The goal is to take care of yourself. Sometimes that means saying yes, and sometimes that means saying no.

Mostly focused.When he’s not thinking about cakes, tea sets, flowers, and tulle, he’s entirely caught up by thinking about Dean, the best man. Lucky for him, Dean is equally caught.

Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Tonight Show’ Welcomed By Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey & Basically Everyone Else

For Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” inauguration, over a dozen A-list celebrities showed up to pay homage to the newly minted host. And pay homage they did, with each giving him $ 100 — the sum that Fallon’s friends wagered that he would never host “The Tonight Show.”

Apparently, he had quite a number of “friends” who made that bet.

Robert De Niro threw down a bill, followed by a parade of celebrities, including of Fallon’s former Weekend Update co-anchor Tina Fey, Joe Namath, Rudy Giuliani, Mariah Carey, Tracy Morgan, Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian, Seth Rogen, Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mike Tyson, Lady Gaga and finally Fallon’s former Best Friend Forever For Six Months — and now timeslot rival — Stephen Colbert.

“Welcome to 11:30, bitch!” Colbert exclaimed after dumping a pile of coins on Fallon’s desk. Watch the video above.
