Robert Redford Reveals He Never Should Have Said He Is Retiring: ‘That Was a Mistake’

Robert Redford regrets saying he is retiring from Hollywood.

“I think it was a mistake to say that I was retiring because you never know,” the iconic actor told PEOPLE at the New York premiere of The Old Man & the Gun on Thursday.

“It did feel like it was time maybe, to concentrate on another category.”

The 82-year-old actor admitted that he never should have said that his last film would be upcoming FOX Searchlight crime-comedy.

“I shouldn’t have said that because it draws attention away from the film.”

In August, the actor told Entertainment Weekly that he would be retiring after wrapping production on the movie.

“Never say never, but I pretty well concluded that this would be it for me in terms of acting, and move towards retirement after this ’cause I’ve been doing it since I was 21,” Redford explained to EW.

“I thought, ‘Well, that’s enough.’ And why not go out with something that’s very upbeat and positive?”

Redford made his Broadway debut in 1959 in Tall Story and hit the small screen with various roles in 1960.

In the illustrious career that has followed, Redford has earned two Oscars, six Golden Globes, and one BAFTA, among several other accolades. He has starred in dozens of films, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance KidThe StingThe Great GatsbyAll the President’s Men, and Out of Africa.

‘Elder Scrolls Online’ Is the Best ‘Skyrim’ Sequel You’ve Never Played

OK, let’s address the dragon in the room — Elder Scrolls Online doesn’t exactly have the best reputation, does it? When it launched back in 2014, the excited pre-release whispers surrounding the fantasy MMO suddenly erupted into groans of disappointment as the game finally made its way into players’ hands.

While fans had been salivating over the idea of an online Skyrim spin-off ever since they uttered their first “Fus Ro Dah,” once it actually arrived, the Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) launch experience simply didn’t feel like a true Bethesda adventure. With the long-running series renowned for spinning epic yarns that kept the player at the centre of its universe, ESO’s disparate narrative and frustratingly closed world made it clear that this was little more than your bog standard MMO.

So, like many other gamers, I wrote it off, never giving the massively multiplayer RPG a second thought. It turns out, though, a lot has changed in the four years since ESO 1.0. While gamers continued to pan it in comment sections, developer ZeniMax studios quietly listened, gathering all the various criticism — and used it to slowly transform ESO into the online Tamriel adventure that fans had been dreaming of.

Newer Scrolls



Hearing rumours of a new and improved ESO, I decided to dive back in, creating a character in the lush, Tolkein-esque realm of the new expansion area, Summerset (sadly not the idyllic, English cider region). The action-packed intro immediately makes me feel like I’m playing a new, single-player Elder Scrolls adventure. Gone are the weird, slightly delayed attack animations that define most MMOs. Instead, as a horde of undead nasties swarm toward my hero (who I named Scrolleth the Elder, obviously), I’m surprised to see that swinging Scrolleth’s sword rewards me with the same immediate satisfaction I’d expect from Skyrim.

The narrative too has improved leaps and bounds since its original incarnation. This time, I do believe the line that I’m “ the only who can save Tamriel.” Why? Because the well-scripted dungeons and quests feel far more like a single-player RPG than the generic “kill x, fetch y” chores you expect from the genre.



It’s worth noting that I’m playing this all on console, too — which is traditionally the MMO genre’s mortal enemy. It’s impressive how well ZeniMax has condensed a plethora of menus and hotkeys to work with so few buttons, with none of the awkward fiddly controls that made navigating Final Fantasy XIV such a chore on PS4. It’s a strange feeling, suddenly enjoying something you’d written off years ago.

With a passing mention of ESO usually greeted with eye rolls or a dismissive wave of the hand, it’s difficult not to feel like I’ve discovered a secret gaming world. Keen to find out more about ESO’s shocking rebirth, I spoke to the game’s Creative Director, Rich Lambert.

“The PC launch was a little bit rough for us,” admits Rich. “We didn’t quite get it, we just didn’t quite have that Elder Scrolls feel. The game didn’t really start to feel like Elder Scrolls until, oh boy… I guess towards the end of 2016. That was when we did our One Tamriel update, which removed a lot of those MMO-isms, if you will.”

Opening Up the World



“[At launch,] we just didn’t get it.” — Rich Lambert, Creative Director

By then, though, not only had most gamers forgotten about ESO, but the majority of console players had also given up on the idea of having a controller-friendly MMO. But with ESO already racking up huge development costs, ZeniMax knew they had to keep building upon their solid MMO foundation until their connected world really felt like Elder Scrolls.

“MMOs are extremely difficult to make and they’re also extremely expensive,” says Rich. “Todd Howard‘s group has an amazing track record, developing Elder Scrolls into this unbelievably strong IP that was beloved by its fanbase. So, yeah, there was a lot of pressure on us to deliver something quality, to keep working and deliver something really, really good.”

Zenimax knew that the combat was almost there. What needed to come next was the thing that really defines Elder Scrolls — a sense of freedom.

“Before, there were these arbitrary level gates going into zones. You had to be a certain level to go to a zone because the monsters were harder. Axing those really opened the world up for us and made it feel like Elder Scrolls — because Elder Scrolls is about exploration… it’s about you exploring, and your journey through the world rather than a linear journey.”

A Class of Its Own



For many players though, it’s not just the literal path you choose to take that defines freedom — it’s the options you’re given to mold your character, too.

“If you look at Elder Scrolls over the years and how they’ve done things, it’s always been ‘play the way you want to play’, even to the point where they removed classes over the years,” says Rich. “In Oblivion you kind of had templates, where you could kind of make a character that fits that theme and then in Skyrim, no classes, they had a skill tree. So, we wanted to get that feel of freedom [right] while still kind of having that class identity, because that’s one of the things MMO players can easily wrap their heads around, ‘I am this class’.”

Having lost a fair few hours to MMOs in my time, a rigidly defined class system is something I’d just come to expect from the genre. It was with some surprise then, that I discovered ESO players are given far more flexibility. Here, you are able to role a mage, but instead of being tied to robes and staves for the next thousand hours, you can ditch them whenever you please and run around Tamriel levelling up your two-handed sword skill.

Yet, as nice as having a flexible class system is, as every Elder Scrolls fan will tell you, it’s your actions that really define who you are in Tamriel.

It’s About the Little Things



“[A]ll the little things you can steal and the boxes you can open … That’s what really makes the world feel alive.” — Rich Lambert, Creative Director

“That was one of the bits of feedback that we got from the player base, ‘Where’s the Thieves Guild? Where’s Dark Brotherhood? Where’s being able to mess with the world, the thieving, the killing?’”

Running through the hub city of Summerset, I find myself mashing the “A” button impatiently while listening to a quest giver yammer on — until I suddenly see the “steal” prompt flash on the screen. It’s something I didn’t think was possible in a persistent online world, and within seconds, I’m gleefully pickpocketing NPCs and stealing an excessive number of candles for the sheer hell of it.

“We actually struggled really hard with trying to figure how that was going to work in an online space,” says Rich. “In a single-player space, it’s fine because you’re only kind of ruining your own fun or getting yourself into trouble. In a multiplayer space, there’s potential for you to get other people in trouble. So, we looked really hard to what are the type of actions that players can do and what are the types of reactions guards could have and NPCs could have. And that’s kind of how we settled in on the justice system. I call them clickies, all the little things you can steal and the boxes you can open, the sacks of things you can take out. That really makes the world feel alive.”

Making a Connected World Feel Separate



But without a decent story to keep you invested, this would hardly be worthy of the Elder Scrolls name. So far, what I’ve seen of the story feels like a fun (if pretty generic) bit of high fantasy. Yet, it’s impressive that, despite the fact I’m roaming a hugely populated server, each time I’m given a quest, I feel like this is a story that is meant entirely for Mr Scrolleth the Elder.

“One of the biggest challenges is making the player feel like they’re always at the center of things,” explains Rich. “That one is really, really hard. We tried a lot of different things early on, and they didn’t necessarily work that well. The other problem you have is because this is such a social game and it’s a multiplayer game, player separation is a big issue. It’s one of the things we spent a long time at launch trying to fix because we focused so much on letting the player be the key person in the story. So we would use layered [storytelling].

After a few moments of silence and me shrugging pointlessly to myself during our phone interview, it becomes clear to Rich that I have no idea what he means by layered storytelling.

“I think a good example of that is there’s a number of quests where you have the choice to kill an NPC or not to kill an NPC. If, say, I choose to kill them — and you choose to let them go — when we both go back to that point, I won’t see the NPC that I killed — it will be another NPC — but you will see the NPC that you saved. So, we can do things where we change what you see, but that NPC is kind of always there. It means you always feel invested, but we don’t have to actually separate the players.”

Sharing Scrolls

As Scrolleth the Elder continues to wreak havoc across the nooby areas of Tamriel, at around the ten-hour mark it suddenly dawns on me — I haven’t even had the option to team up with another player yet. So how exactly does grouping work in ESO?

“So, we allow you to have a critical path, story path, that is for the single player, but if you want to get into the multiplayer aspects you will naturally kind of stumble upon it in your exploration,” explains Rish. “And then if you really want to do more of that stuff, we have group instances where you have to have four players. Then we also have the trials which [are] more akin to the end-game stuff, our version of raids, which require 12 players.”

The more I talk to Rich the more I hear an almost palpable sense of relief in his voice. Instead of having to defend his game and pitch me everything that ZeniMax has been working so hard to accomplish over the last four years, he seems excited to be speaking to a new convert. So there’s only really one question left to ask: “What would you say to those who, like me, had already written Elder Scrolls Online off all those years ago?”

“I would say this is an Elder Scrolls experience. Just because it’s online doesn’t necessarily mean you’re required to go with other players. You can play it your own way, play at your own pace, play the way you want to play and really explore,” Rich pauses thoughtfully. “Also, our game isn’t a rush to the end — whereas that’s where the real game begins in a lot of MMOs. Our game? It’s just about your journey through this magical world.”

It’s Never Too Late To Get In Shape – Find Out How To Get Started

Age ain’t nothing but a number and that includes those who are trying to get in shape. Fitness trainer to the Obamas, Cornell McClellan says you can start from where you are and go from there. If you’ve seen the viral video of a morbidly obese man working out at high intensity or the video of a woman working out from a chair, you can do it, too. Here’s what you need to know to take that first step.

 IF YOU’VE BEEN OUT OF SHAPE FOR A WHILE OR HAVE FALLEN OFF THE WAGON, WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO START?

Get a physical first to make sure that it is safe to get back into a fitness routine. Walking and even some strength training is a great start, but always start slow. Give your body a chance to acclimate; don’t just jump into boot camp.

 IS IT EVER TOO LATE FOR A WOMAN TO GET MICHELLE OBAMA ARMS? WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO DO IT?

It is never too late. Be prepared to make life changes; in terms of both activity and eating. This is about lifestyle changes not quick fixes.

WHEN IT COMES TO CHANGING YOUR BODY, IS DIET OR EXERCISE MORE IMPORTANT?

Diet and exercise are like air and water; they are equally important.

 WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOUR KNEES OR BACK HURT WHEN YOU WORK OUT?

If you have been examined by a physician and know what your dos and don’ts are; stay away from those particular movements that give you pain.  You do not want to work through pain.  There are modifications that you can do that can keep you from pain.

 WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON A PLANT-BASED, MEATLESS DIET?

I have been on a plant-based meatless diet for over 25 years. I think it is great and how we were created to eat.

HOW CAN YOU  CURB CRAVINGS FOR UNHEALTHY FOOD?

Eat on schedule; every 2.5 to 3 hours. Plan balanced meals and snacks and eat only what you planned.  Always have a water bottle with you so that you stay hydrated.

 IF YOU HAVE LIMITED TIME IN YOUR SCHEDULE, DO YOU SUGGEST WEIGHT TRAINING OR CARDIO EXERCISE?

Weight training but add in calisthenics so you get some cardio.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PEOPLE WHO TRY THE LATEST DIET TREND AND LOSE WEIGHT TOO FAST? ISN’T THAT HARMFUL TO YOUR BODY?

I believe in a lifestyle change not quick fixes.

 FOR THOSE WHO MAY WORK LONG OR UNUSUAL HOURS, WHAT ARE SOME AT-HOME EXERCISES TO ACHIEVE RESULTS?

There is a long list including jumping jacks, pushups, burpees, wall sits… but it is not just the exercise. The repetition, combination of exercises and the form are all important too. Join us for The Immortal Body Workout.  This online class is easily accessible anytime and anywhere.  You will learn a variety of exercise and combinations of exercises to achieve results.

 WHAT VITAMINS SHOULD WE TAKE DAILY AS WE GET OLDER?

What is recommended by your physician.

 WHAT SHOULD WE EAT BEFORE AND AFTER A WORK OUT?

Depends on what time of day and what you are doing.  For example, if it is the first thing in the morning and you are only doing cardio, you can not eat and just drink fluid.  If it is the first thing in the morning and you are strength training, you should have carbs and protein.

Certified fitness consultant and personal trainer Cornell McClellan has been a personal trainer to the Obama family for more than two decades. He’s credited as the creator of Michelle Obama’s toned, muscular arms. Mcclellan is the owner of Naturally Fit, a training and wellness company with a mission is to show how fitness can be achieved through a holistic approach that enhances the mind, strengthens the body and nurtures the spirit.

Cuomo Is Right, America Has Never Been ‘Great’ For Many of Us

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is taking some heat for a statement he made at a conference on Wednesday. His words:

We’re not going to Make America Great Again. It was never that great. We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged.

Of course, the right-wing (which loathes Cuomo as well as the state he governs) did not hesitate to twist the governor’s words out of context and use them in full-blown attack mode.

“It’s shocking that Andrew Cuomo would make such an offensive remark that insults the people of this country, the ideals upon which she was founded and the countless men and women who have fought and died to protect her,” said New York Republican Committee Chairman Ed Cox.

Cuomo is up for re-election this year. His Republican challenger, Marc Molinaro said that Cuomo “owes the nation an apology.” Unsurprisingly, President Trump weighed in, tweeting that Cuomo was having a “total meltdown.”

All the furor leads me to wonder, at which moment in history did America become great for African Americans?

Was it during the 1700s when our ancestors were kidnapped, shackled, and sold off? Despite Ben Carson’s delusional depiction of slaves as “immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less” the 1700s were kind of horrific for black people.

Perhaps some may think the 1800s were great for African Americans, because, hey, slavery ended. Ending the practice of human beings as chattel is a pretty low bar for achieving “greatness.” Also, slavery’s end was the beginning of decades of hell for black folk in the form of Jim Crow, the Ku Klux Klan, lynchings, voter intimidation, abject poverty, the Black Codes…etcetera, etcetera.

Was the 20th century when America finally became great for people of color? There certainly were moments of greatness. FDR’s New Deal provided unprecedented assistance to African Americans. The NAACP was formed. And, the iconic civil rights movement forever changed the conversation about race in America.

Yet, all of the above-mentioned things had to happen because life still sucked for black people.

National greatness eludes us even today. In the 21st century, prison is the new plantation. African Americans are incarcerated at five times the rate of whites (and in some states, at 10 times the rate).

The racial wealth gap is a subject we cover extensively at Black Enterprise. Although more blacks now own businesses (in fact, black-owned businesses increased by a rate of 400% this year) and are attaining higher education, the racial wealth gap is not narrowing. In 2016, according to the Census Bureau, the median income for white American households was $ 63,041 in stark contrast to black households at $ 39,490.

Even when we are gainfully employed, climbing the corporate ladder, African Americans are paid less for doing the same work as whites. Black women are paid approximately 63 cents on the dollar earned by a white man even at an equal educational level.

You would think after all the trials and tribulations African Americans have overcome and faced, they would at least let us protest injustice peacefully. NFL players have been a particular bane of the President’s, even calling those that kneel in protest “sons of b*tches.” His supporters often make the same collective jeer; “They make millions, they have nothing to protest!”

OK, black unemployment is at a historical low. That’s got to be a plus-one for a great America. The black unemployment rate is something Trump and his supporters keep touting as a reason America is great for black Americans.

Yet, whether that faction is screaming that NFL players should ‘just stick to football and enjoy your millions,’ or claiming blacks owe allegiance to Trump because of the unemployment rate, it sounds they are less concerned about this country being great for African Americans, but more that we should be grateful for whatever gains we make here.

I am going to take a hard pass on the suggestion that America is great for everyone. In their indignant pre-midterm election apoplexy, Cuomo’s critics are ignoring the entirety of his statement, “We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged.”

It’s important we don’t deem America great just yet. Once greatness is achieved, there is no further ascent to be made, nothing more to improve, no reason to keep striving. There is much that is great about our country, but so much more work to be done to truly achieve liberty and justice for all.

7 Members of the Same Family Killed in Horror Crash: ‘My Heart Hurts Like It Never Hurt Before’

Seven family members were killed in a head-on car crash in eastern Oregon on Monday.

Erika Boquet, 29, her three children and Boquet’s stepmother Kyla Brown, 28, and her two children were all killed when a 1999 Toyota 4Runner driving on the other side of the road, crossed into their lane and smashed into their 2016 Toyota 4Runner, Oregan State Police confirmed.

Boquet, her children Isabella, 11, Elisabeth, 9, and Tytis, 6, as well as Brown and her children Arianna, 10, and Xavier, 2, were all pronounced dead at the scene, police said in a statement.

The lone driver of the 1999 Toyota 4Runner, Mark Robert Rundell, 48, also died in the collision.

The young family was on their way to Las Vegas from Washington during the time of the fatal accident, which took place at around 10 a.m.

Boquet’s father and Brown’s partner Louis Johnson was flying to Nevada to meet his family when tragedy struck.

The devastated father and grandfather posted on his Facebook that his “world came crashing down.”

“My heart hurts like it never hurt before. I have no answers to a 1000 whys,” he wrote, asking friends and family to join him at a vigil held Wednesday. “We lost 7 loved ones and the pain we feel is deep. I need to see the love I lost in you.”

Boquet’s brother Jessie Tate has set up a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising money to cover the funeral costs.

“Our family is at a complete loss. We are trying to come up with enough money to bring them home and give them the proper burial they deserve,” the GoFundMe page reads.

“Erika was kind and always giving to others. Her heart was big and full of compassion. Words can not describe how much Erika, Bella, Elisa and Tytis will be missed.”

So far, the page has raised over $ 30,000.

Tate also opened up to The Oregonian about his sister’s devastating death.

“It’s a tragedy I wouldn’t wish on anyone else,” Tate explained to the publication.

“She was outgoing, personable, made friends everywhere she went, and her kids took after her,” Tate continued.

“They all just cared about everyone around them.”

The accident remains under investigation.

Joe Arpaio on Sacha Baron Cohen: I ‘Never Agreed’ to Blow Job from Trump

SHOWTIME

Former sheriff and current GOP Senate candidate Joe Arpaio apparently has no idea that he accepted the hypothetical offer of an “amazing blow job” from President Donald Trump on the latest episode of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Who Is America?

In a new interview with the Phoenix New Times, the 86-year-old Arpaio says that he “never agreed” to oral sex from the president who recently pardoned him. This is despite the fact that when Baron Cohen—in character as a Finnish internet celebrity named OMGWhizzBoyOMG—asked him directly, “If Donald Trump calls you up after this and says, ‘Sheriff Joe, I want to offer you an amazing blow job,’ would you say yes?” Arpaio answered, “I may have to say yes.”

“I didn’t even know what he was talking about,” Arpaio explained. “I couldn’t even hear what the hell he was saying… He had a bad accent. He was twisting things around.” As for Baron Cohen’s questions about “hand jobs,” the former sheriff seemed similarly perplexed, adding, “We were talking about illegals and working with your hands!”

SYTYCD’s Travis Wall Splits from Fiancé After 7 Years: ‘I Will Never Forget Us’

It’s over for Travis Wall and Dom Palange.

The So You Think You Can Dance choreographer announced in an Instagram post Friday that he and his fiancé, UCLA gymnastics coach Palange, have split.

“As the dust settles, there are so many great memories to hold on to,” Wall, 30, captioned a photo of the pair.

“I will never forget us, but in this moment in time, us is no longer him and I forever,” he continued. “Please respect our privacy during this transition.”

In honor of their seventh anniversary in March, Palange shared a cuddly photo of the duo to Instagram.

“To 7 more years of not killing each other and many other important things over the years like getting in good enough shape for instagram, not making poor style choices as often, driving nice cars, buying expensive cheese, and taking trips to Italy…. you know, the stuff that matters,” he wrote.

The SYTYCD choreographer proposed to Palange back in March 2016 on the couple’s fifth anniversary.

“He said ‘yes!’ I met the love of my life, Dom Palange, five years ago, and my life is forever changed,” Wall told E! News. “I’ve had the ring for two years and have been waiting for the perfect moment.”

Wall is known for being a runner-up on the second season of SYTYCD as well as a choreographer on the show. He won an outstanding choreography Emmy Award in 2015 and 2017 and is nominated this year for outstanding choreography.

Cardi B Gets Real About Motherhood – ‘You’ll Never Be Ready For Mommy Mode!’

The rapper is now a mom and is realizing what that really means. But while it’s definitely not easy and nothing can really prepare you for it beforehand, Cardi B wouldn’t have it any other way.

Cardi has been sacrificing her precious sleep ever since welcoming baby daughter Kulture, but that hasn’t dragged her down.

Today, she took to her social media to share a video with her followers in which she addressed her 10 MTV Video Music Awards nominations, something she was obviously really happy and grateful for.

She also went on to open up about motherhood, using a doll to talk to the fans as she apparently did not look a hundred percent at the time and did not want to show her face.

‘Thank you to everybody. I cannot believe that I got nominated for 10 VMA Awards. I’m just been so busy, so tired. Like, I’m in a different world, a different dimension. Now, let me get back to this mommy thing. Let me tell you something. No matter how many books you read or advice I get, y’all will never be ready for mommy mode,’ she said in the clip.

Before that post, she shared a pic that showed only half of her makeup-free face and wrote that she absolutely needed some sleep.

Yesterday, Cardi also posted a pic featuring her and hubby Offset at the doctor with their newborn for a routine checkup and she was not wearing any makeup in that one either.

Ain’t nobody got time for that when they have a bundle of joy to take care of!

As you may remember, Kulture was born on July 10 and the rapper couple is yet to post a pic of her.

Omni 20 USB-C battery pack review: If you try this $200 battery, you’ll never go back

Best USB-C battery pack for laptops: Omni 20 USB-C review

I remember introducing the rest of my family to rechargeable battery packs about seven years ago, just as everyone was migrating from Blackberries onto a mixture of Android and Palm Pre (!) devices. At the time, a 2,000mAh device that fit in a backpack and gave you 60 percent more battery life was the most magical thing I could remember.

Fast-forward to 2018, and battery packs can do a whole lot more. Thanks to improvements in battery technology, a pack the size of a few decks of playing cards can charge your phone for a week, and USB-C technology means that much bigger and more powerful devices can take a charge.

Why It’s Never Too Late to Buy Bitcoin

I get some version of this sentiment every single day I talk to someone not into cryptocurrency about buying into it: “I missed it. It’s too late.”

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO BUY BITCOIN AND GET INTO CRYPTOCURRENCY!

This post has been brewing in me for some time. All the looky-loos who are feeling a serious case of FOMO, as bitcoin and cryptocurrency have dominated the imagination of the investment class, see four-figure prices for a whole bitcoin and think it’s just too late to make money in crypto. As a person who is making money every single day in modest amounts with cryptocurrency, I can assure you that it’s never too late.

bitcoin

 

THE EVIDENCE: 1. Bitcoin, and most of the best cryptocurrencies, are deflationary assets, meaning that they only appreciate over time, mostly due to the limited nature of their supply. bitcoiin

Bitcoin, the very first cryptocurrency, was created as a reaction against the bailouts brought on in the aftermath of the Great Recession. This is why there will only be 21 million bitcoin ever, produced at a steady, predictable rate over time until 2140. Considering 16.7 million bitcoin have already been produced, the fight for the remaining 4.3M new bitcoin over the next century will be an expensive one. Considering an estimated 4M bitcoin have never moved and are assumed to be “lost” to early creators’ deaths, every millionaire in the US couldn’t own a whole bitcoin of the 12M or so in circulation if they wanted to. GET IN!

2. Bitcoin block rewards will keep “halving” over time. This means that the amount of bitcoin produced from the efforts of miners will see their bitcoin rewards cut in half, periodically and repeatedly, until 21 million is reached. This will make existing and future bitcoin that much more rare, that much more valuable. GET IN!

3. It’s not a bubble. For the first time in a while, consumers are leading the adoption of financial innovation instead of being led by the inherently untrustworthy, self-interested, tax-avoiding financial elite of Wall Street. In the recent past, investment banks, big commercial banks, and legislators/regulators would cook up all manner of schemes to continue to enrich themselves, largely at the expense of the middle-to-lower classes. When the weight of the financial class’ exploitation of the lower classes becomes too much to bear, we get events like the Great Recession. By having a revolution in investment coming from the ground up this time—somehow way ahead of institutional and traditional investors getting a chance to manipulate it—the rise of crypto-wealth feels far more sustainable than other investment trends of the past. GET IN!

 

bitcoin4. The dollar has lost its value. Forget inflation, a concept that bitcoin laughs at as a de facto deflationary cryptocurrency. When economists and the landed gentry of the financial class poke at bitcoin, decrying that it has “no value,” it exposes the myth of the inherent value of the U.S. dollar itself.

Besides centuries of advantage being first to market, relentless societal and institutional marketing, and the backing of the biggest army in the world to enforce it, the dollar doesn’t have any value unless we give it value. And that value is falling.

That value is falling because of the instability of executive American leadership, worldwide distrust after the financial shenanigans and money printing done to get us out of the Recession, and the gaping need for a truly stateless world reserve currency. At best, the American president is unqualified for a job he ascertained under a cloud of suspicion and foreign interference. While many Americans lost their jobs and their homes, investment banks who gambled away their pensions were bailed out, and are even stronger than ever. Add in the fact that the purchasing power of the US dollar has fallen some 96% over the last hundred years. Since 1976, the dollar has been off of the gold standard, which underpinned the value of the currency to ounces of gold, yet still, the world considers the dollar the world’s reserve currency. With all these factors going against it, it’s a miracle the dollar is valued much at all. GET IN!

5. Bitcoin could be—should be—worth more than a million dollars per coin in our lifetime. It is opined here that a $ 1M per bitcoin valuation is well within the global money supply. As it is truly a deflationary asset, HODLers like myself tend to buy and hold rather than spend it, adding to its scarcity of demand. Also consider that bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are breaking all traditional molds of financial and FOREX investing. This article here explains how the $ 350 trillion markets for money, equities, and real estate will all be digitized by blockchain assets. We are not even at a quarter trillion in cryptocurrency market cap today. GET IN!

6. It continues to outperform all asset classes combined. The reason why we invest is to build wealth and financial security, correct? As evidenced by the chart below from an earlier post, nothing has built wealth like an investment in bitcoin over the past seven years. GET IN!

At some point, it’s not a bubble: It’s just REALITY. Welcome to our new financial reality, where you have a once-in-a-generation chance to build generational wealth. For all the reasons above and more, for the immediate future, it’s never too late to invest in cryptocurrency—and escape the financial world’s Sunken Place.

This is why you should never spray perfume in your hair

NEVER. EVER.

If there’s one thing that’s true about hair, it’s that it’s great at holding on to scent.

But although we all like our hair to smell great, you should never spray regular perfume directly on your hair.

This is because perfume contains alcohol, which is incredibly drying for hair and can leave it brittle, haystack-like and more likely to suffer breakage.

Hair mists on the other hand are still perfumed, but with a much lower concentration of alcohol, so you can spritz away to your heart’s content. Plus they last ages, due to your hair’s ability to trap the smell, so no need for top-ups throughout the day.

With this in mind, we’ve picked some of our favourite hair mists from the perfumery world we’re obsessed with (and you will be too).

Balmain Hair Silk Perfume, £9.95, Lookfantastic

A designer favourite, the dreamy scent of pine, peach blossom, woods and raspberry is enriched with argain oil and silk protein to treat your hair while you wear it. Win-win.

Buy now

Byredo La Tulipe Hair Perfume, £48, Space NK

Tulips are actually scentless, so this gorgeous floral scent is founder Ben Gorham’s imagination of what it would smell like. It’s the perfect balance of sweet florals without being too sickly, combining freesia, rhubarb and blonde woods.

Buy now

Maison Francois Kirkdijan Baccarat Rouge 540 Hair Mist, £65, Selfridges

Baccarat Rouge 540 is a delicious combination of cedar, saffron and amber gris, combining for a rich, slightly fruity overall scent – so you can imagine our delight when it was turned into a scented hair mist. It’s the perfect fragrance to wear all year-round.

Buy now

Coco Madameoiselle Fresh Hair Mist, £34.20, House of Fraser

Recently revealed as the most popular perfume of 2018 so far, it’s only fair that we give a shout out to Chanel’s fresh hair scent. A timeless classic, this is the perfect buy if Coco Madameoiselle is already your signature scent.

Apologies in advance for starting your new hair perfume addiction.

Here’s to great hair (mist) days for everyone.

10 Instagram moms who remind us we’re never alone

by

Becky Vieira

posted in Life

Motherhood is amazing. It can also be lonely. Thankfully other moms are there to lean on when we need it. Unless you’re like me, who spent the first few months of my son’s life without any mom friends. 

I turned to Instagram to fill the void. And while I love the accounts of moms who dress their entire family in matching white outfits (while sitting on their white couch, eating homemade snacks made of fruits and vegetables grown in their garden, and served on plates made in their home pottery studio), that wasn’t me.

Luckily, with some searching, I found “my people.”

There are celebrities I love and follow (Chrissy Tiegen is all of us, and Busy Phillips is my imaginary best friend). But the bulk of my tribe is comprised of these amazing moms who fill my Instagram feed with love, humor and honesty:

For the mom craving honesty: motherhoodunderstood is the mom friend we all crave. Brooke Christian and Jen Schwartz are PPD survivors who are busting taboos and changing conversations. They get real about everything and say what we’re all thinking. Only this duo does it with empathy, humor and grace. Follow them here.

For the mom seeking balance: motherhonestly is a community created by Blessing Adesiyan. She’s a chemical engineer, mom of two and the queen of personal balance. She’s found a way to thrive at work and home, on her own terms. She inspires and helps other moms find their path of balance. I always feel so encouraged by her feed. Follow her here.

For the sarcastic/funny/real mom: macgyveringmom22 is one of the first moms I found on Instagram who helped me feel normal and not alone. Macgill Frutchey is a mom of three boys who tackles life with wit and humor. Her keen observations leave me nodding and cracking up, and I’m constantly sharing her memes with friends. But I really fell in love with her when she began documenting her battle with a rare and aggressive sarcoma (cancer) in between those hilarious memes. She’s an inspiration — and a constant source of comfort, sisterhood and humor. Follow her here.

For the fit mom: sweatwithlaurenhefez inspires me to move. Her photos make me happy and draw me in. And, dare I say, make me want to exercise. She’s always having fun while staying fit. She peppers her account with real mom life — meals, trips to Target and reminding us moms how fantastic we are. Follow her here.

For the healthy/foodie mom: lifeandthymez is everything I aspire to be in the kitchen: healthy, delicious and simple. Mom Zlata Faerman’s recipes are toddler-friendly. Meaning, you don’t have to make a separate meal for the adults and children. And did I mention simple? Two ingredient, healthy cookies. Many are also low FODMAP and gluten free. She also shares her picks for healthy store-bought snacks when you can’t make your own. Because… motherhood! Follow her here.

For the tired mom: meetyoundreamland helped my son sleep. And, as a result, I was able to sleep also. Kerrin Edmonds is a certified infant and pediatric sleep consultant, and she shares all sorts of tips on her Instagram page. As a bonus, she hosts a live, free Q&A every Thursday night where she answers all your sleep questions. If I can’t make the live session I’ll read the questions the next day, and I’m constantly picking up sleep tips. Follow her here.

For the timeless mom: olliella is the feed for sisters Chloe and Olivia Brookman’s gorgeous collection of wares for nomads, homebodies and small folk, Olli Ella — but it’s so much more. The photos are not only of the gorgeous products, but the sisters’ lives with their families. From travel to the everyday, it will draw you in. And the accompanying messages will fill your heart and make you feel at home. Follow them here.

For the outdoorsy mom: beccajcaldwell is letting her kids run loose — on trails, in National Parks and anywhere without a roof. Rebecca Caldlwell’s pure love for the outdoors is being passed along to her children. Her account is full of family photos in the great outdoors, showing how we can help our own little community enjoy the beauty around us. Follow her here.

For the mom fighting PPD: whentheboughbreaksdoc was a groundbreaking documentary that ripped the curtain off postpartum depression and started a long overdue dialogue. This companion account shares personal stories and inspirational memes. Follow it here.

For the mom looking for a friend: wittyotter is the mom who will give you honesty through laughter and tears. Full disclosure, this one is mine. I’m nothing if not honest. I’ve tried to create an account that shows what I was craving in my early days of motherhood: truth, compassion and friendship. I share the funny (and embarrassing) times, unfiltered moments along my PPD journey and photos of me in my hospital granny panties. Follow me here.

Chrissy Teigen just raised a VERY important question about The Little Mermaid on Twitter, and the movie will never be the same again

Chrissy Teigen just raised a VERY important question about The Little Mermaid on Twitter, and the movie will never be the same again


Chrissy Teigen just raised a VERY important question about <em>The Little Mermaid</em> on Twitter, and the movie will never be the same again

We’re pleased to report that Chrissy Teigen has broken the internet yet again. Thanks to her humor, frankness, and penchant for Twitter rants, Teigen is of our favorite people to follow on social media. Remember when she live-tweeted her disastrous experience flying to Tokyo? Or her savage tweets about Jesus Christ Superstar Live? Well, Teigen’s latest Twitter rant — which happens to be about The Little Mermaid — might be our favorite one yet.

On Sunday, June 10th, the supermodel and cookbook author took to Twitter to raise a VERY important question: “How does Ariel know what ‘reprimand’ means but not ‘feet?’” And now, we don’t think we’ll ever see The Little Mermaid the same way again.

Teigen is, of course, referring to lyrics from the song “Part of Your World.” While wondering about life above the water, Ariel sings, “Bet’cha on land, they understand / Bet they don’t reprimand their daughters.”

We always knew that Ariel didn’t know the words for a lot of objects on land. At various points during The Little Mermaid, she doesn’t know the word for a fork or a pipe, opting instead to call them a “dinglehopper” and a “snarfblat,” respectively. But Teigen pointing out that Ariel DOES know such a big word (you know, relatively speaking) like “reprimand” makes us see the movie in a new way.

We don’t know what prompted Teigen’s Twitter rant about The Little Mermaid — maybe she was watching the movie at home with Luna and Miles? But however she arrived at this thought, we’re grateful that she shared it with us.

Can’t argue with this logic.

In the end, Teigen decided that maybe Ariel just isn’t the brightest Disney princess of the bunch.

After all, the mermaid has lived a pretty sheltered life.

Oh, Chrissy. Never stop tweeting your trains of thought, okay?

‘He Had Everything.’ Anthony Bourdain’s Mother Says She Never Thought He Would Commit Suicide

Anthony Bourdain’s mother has expressed shock and sadness over the death of her son in an interview with the New York Times.

“He is absolutely the last person in the world I would have ever dreamed would do something like this,” Gladys Bourdain, who was an editor at the Times for years, told the newspaper.

Bourdain, the renowned chef and author whose storytelling and traveling influenced others and embraced different cultures, died this week in an apparent suicide. He was 61 years old.

“He had everything,” his mother told the Times. “Success beyond his wildest dreams. Money beyond his wildest dreams.”

Gladys Bourdain told the Times that Eric Ripert, a French chef and close friend of her son’s, told her that Bourdain “had been in a dark mood these past couple of days.”

Bourdain’s death shocked and saddened the world this week as fans and friends of his expressed the impact he had on their lives and the influential role he had in the restaurant industry. Restaurant owners and chefs who he visited in his variety of TV shows point to him as a reason for their growing success, and fans took to social media to express how he used his platform to convey empathy and understanding.

Bourdain’s suicide followed that of Kate Spade, an influential fashion designer who had died in an apparent suicide at age 55, and came at a time when the rates of suicide were on the rise across the U.S. Mental health professionals advised people to reach out and support friends or loved ones who may be struggling, and learn to identify warning signs like depression or changes in behavior, among other behaviors.

The deaths of two influential figures in their respective fields have also provoked conversations about how successful people are not immune depression, mental health issues or suicide. TIME’s Belinda Luscombe detailed this in a piece, where she examined the deaths of Bourdain and Kate Spade, the influential fashion designer who had died by an apparent suicide days earlier. “Many lives are not as they appear. Happiness is not the end result of a sum of accomplishments,” Luscombe writes. “The person whose wealth/wardrobe/job/talent you wish you had has his or her own struggles, and they could at least equal our own.”

If you or someone you know may be contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

10 things you should never get on a plane without

ADVERTISEMENT


If you’re just as obsessed with traveling as we are, you’ll know that packing for a vacation is one of the hardest things to do. Sure, you can get excited about wandering around temples, frolicking on a beach, exploring rainforests and other fun activities, but if you haven’t packed the right essentials you might be turning as red as a tomato on the beach, being bitten within an inch of your life in the rainforest, and walking around with broken shoes in the temples. It’ll be a mess. Want our help? We travel all the time, and these are the 10 things we never get on a plane without.

A multi-functional carry-on

Gone are the days of simply taking a backpack as your flight carry-on – the world of traveling has advanced. Nowadays, you can buy awesome multi-functional bags that is a mix between a backpack and a tiny suitcase. Despite their size, these kinds of carry-on cases have enough space to carry everything you need for the plane journey, as well as being both practical and fashionable.

Wireless earbuds

There’s nothing worse than opening your bag to find that your headphones have got caught up in all of your other belongings, or saturated with the hand lotion that popped open mid-flight. This is why we always opt for wireless headphones that you can simply keep in your pocket – away from anything that might hurt or harm them. Nowadays, these kinds of headphones normally have a 6-8 hour charge on them, which is perfect for a mid to long-haul flight.

Comfortable and supportive socks

It’s no secret that sitting on a plane for hours on end is not comfortable in the slightest, which is why should always take it upon yourself to try anything to be comfortable. One of the best ways to do this is to wear your most comfortable and most supportive socks. This way, your feet will feel warm, toasty and soft as you sit in the stagnant air of the airplane.

A multi-purpose toiletry bag

If you hadn’t already guessed, we’re all about using things that can be used for different purposes, which is why you should get a multi-purpose toiletry bag. When you’re traveling a lot, it is not practical to carry various different bags for different categories of cosmetics and toiletries. By buying yourself an all-in-one bag that has separate compartments, you will save yourself a lot of hassle.

A toothbrush you’re used to

During ours travels, we’ve realized that the toothbrushes you receive in hotels or on long flights are often painful and uncomfortable – which is why it’s always important to travel with a toothbrush you’re used to. Whether you want something a bit fancy, or whether you’re used to a cheap dollar toothbrush from the local store, it’ll save you a lot of hassle and bleeding gums.

A multi-purpose wallet

You might be wondering what other purpose a wallet could have – but it’s actually pretty nifty! You can now buy wallets and purses that double up as battery packs for your cell phone, which is perfect for a long flight or a day of traveling. Instead of finding yourself with no battery, you can simply plug it into your purse and charge it up as you go.

A personal backpack

You may have your multi-purpose carry-on, but this bag is not practical for wandering around small side streets, checking out traditional markets, or even surviving a flight. This is why a personal backpack is one of the 10 things we never get on a plane without. This is where you can carry everything from your water to a good book, to your sunglasses, to your headphones and more. By using a personal backpack, you can separate your important flight essentials from your luxuries.

A fancy phone case

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with all of the items you need to take on a flight, which is why it’s best to keep as many things as possible together. This is why it’s a good idea to invest in fancy phone cases that have space for important cards such as ID or bank card. This way, you do not have to fumble around for a purse if you need these items, as they will always be with your phone.

Comfy clothes

Just as you don’t want to step on a plane without comfy socks, you also don’t want to step on a plane without comfortable clothes. When you’re stuck in one position for a few hours, the last thing you want is to be constricted by your clothing. So, steer clear of tight clothing such as denim, and opt for looser items such as leggings, sweaters and more.

Quality skincare

There are a few issues with airplanes; they’re not totally clean, and they’re extremely dry – and these factors can wreak havoc on your body. If you find your skin feels dry during every single flight, then start arming yourself with quality skin care, such as hand lotion and cleansing lotion to avoid bacteria.

If you travel as much as we do, you’ve learned what works and what doesn’t when you’re in-flight – and after many years, we’ve come to the conclusion that these 10 things are essential. Trust us!

The C-Word You Should Never Call a Woman

Social media once again proved their chief export was outrage this week when late night show host Samantha Bee told a joke about Ivanka Trump, calling her a “feckless ‘C-Word.’” (She has since apologized.)

It was no surprise that calls for the comedian to apologize split along party lines, with many conservatives demanding their pound of flesh in return for the canceling of Roseanne over racist tweets earlier in the week. (It’s a false equivalency, but nonetheless a useful tool for figuring out if someone is a racist—equating an abhorrent racial slur with a not-very-nice word.)

For years, the “C-word” has enjoyed the “we can use it, but you can’t” codicil in offensive language. But even in feminist circles, it is still very much another c-word—controversial.

As someone who founded and administers a pro-Hillary Facebook group, I’ve found myself in the middle of this discussion so many times, the other admins and I joke that our memoir will be called Parsing the Word C-nt. We have a no hate speech policy but the question remains, is the “C-word” hate speech?

I started employing the “C-word” in high school for a very simple reason: I wanted to shock. I was a teenager, I wanted to be different, I wanted to be edgy. If this was a word that was so bad you couldn’t use it, then I wanted to be the one to use it. I didn’t realize at the time that in my teen rebellion, I was inadvertently reclaiming the word.

I assume that a majority of the women of my generation and younger women have had a similar journey, judging by the way “C-words” rain down freely and peppers our conversations. You can be mad at someone and use it, but it’s lost a lot of its power, having all of the bite of calling someone a “bitch.” (Although admittedly, this word, too, remains charged based on context and personal interpretation.) For other women, it has evolved into being sensual and erotic—take C-nt: A Declaration of Independence by Inga Muscio, or The C-nt Coloring Book, for example.

Shortly before the election, I had another evolution in thinking about the “C-word.” After seeing a staggering amount of misogyny from folks across every aisle—all of who were using the “C-word,” and not “Clinton,” to describe the most qualified and accomplished modern candidate for the presidency, as well as any women who supported her, I realized that being a c-nt wasn’t such a bad thing. Women were being called c-nts for actually doing some really amazing and brave things.

If it makes you a “C-word” to stand up for yourself, to work hard, to speak truth to power, to not let a man take advantage of your body, to fight for the rights of marginalized voices—then yes, vagina, I was a cunt!

So I made a video about it.

There is one c-word I think is truly offensive to call a woman: crazy. “Crazy” is a tool that the patriarchy uses to dismiss the humanity of women. If a woman thinks she’s being sexually harassed, she’s crazy. If a woman raises her voice or is demanding like a man, she’s crazy. If a woman calls out discrimination, wants to be paid fairly, or says that your jokes are lazy and offensive, she’s crazy. Calling a woman “crazy” is how men say that a woman’s concerns and experiences aren’t real. It’s the permission they give themselves to keep doing what they’re doing, without confronting their own biases. It prevents one of my favorite c-words: change.

Looking back on the whole mess, what should concern Ivanka Trump the most is the “f-word” she was called, the one before the “C-word”—feckless. It means weak, ineffective, worthless. As a woman who builds her brand on the illusion that she works and a mother of a daughter, that should really sting her the most. You can call Hillary Clinton the “C-word” as much as you want, but you can never say she’s feckless. C-nts are never weak and often very effective.

That’s why they hate us.

Tony Awards 2018: The Best Black Actress You Never Heard Of Is Up for a Tony

Seconds after this year’s Tony Award nominations were announced, director Kenny Leon’s phone started blowing up. Lauren Ridloff, the star of Broadway’s revival of Children of a Lesser God, was officially in the race for Best Lead Actress in a Play.

While the announcement may have come as a surprise to some—including Ridloff herself—it only validated what the play’s Tony Award-winning director knew all along.

“I am over the moon excited about it,” Leon said in a phone interview the next day, recalling that the texts flew between them for an hour and a half. “She was surprised! I wasn’t surprised, because she gave one of the most vivid and unforgettable performances on Broadway I’ve ever seen.”

The backstory of Ridloff’s road to the most coveted nomination a stage actor can get is great fodder for its own fairytale script with Leon, who won a Tony for directing the 2014 revival of A Raisin in the Sun, playing a leading role.

Tony Awards

(Twitter)

Begin with the fact that Ridloff is 40 years old, deaf since birth and, when Leon discovered her, she wasn’t an actress at all. She was an at-home mom and former kindergarten teacher whom he hired to tutor him in American Sign Language (ASL). As Leon mulled the idea of reviving the 1979 play about a deaf woman who refused to read lips or speak, he was soon intent on hiring Ridloff in a broader role, as a consultant if the play launched. She would be able to keep the story true to the deaf experience. Ultimately, he asked her to star in the show.

Ridloff was game from the start. Although she has rarely even seen a play (stage productions rarely accommodate the needs of deaf people), she identified with the the script’s main character, Sarah Norman.

Like Sarah, Ridloff decided at age 13 that she would not speak. Through an interpreter, Ridloff told The Interval, a theater website, that it was an act of self-preservation.

Small, bookish, biracial, and mainstreamed in a school where almost everyone else could hear, “I felt there was enough oddness about me,” she recalled. “I didn’t want to face any bullying. I didn’t want to face strange gazes from other people. I didn’t want to be judged based on my voice because that was not a reflection of my intelligence or my personality or who I was.”

It is a testament to Leon’s vision and courage that he cast Ridloff, a woman of color, in a role that had previously only been played by white women (remember Marlee Matlin in the 1986 film?). “I thought it was a given that Sarah was a white deaf woman,” Ridloff told Variety magazine. “So, it was a big surprise to find out that Sarah is now a woman of color, and I’m so proud to present that new Sarah to the world.”

It is a testament to Ridloff’s talent and courage that she agreed to take it on, all the way to the big lights (and brutal critics) of Broadway. The risks have paid off.

“She keeps saying I opened the door, but it’s not about me,” says Leon, arguably one of today’s most sought after and respected directors. “She is a fierce, courageous woman who wants to change what people think about deaf people. She is a gifted artist who wants to be a part of changing the world. With this performance, she’s already doing that.” The Tony Awards will air June 10 on CBS.

Full disclosure: I saw this play on opening night, and could not take my eyes off of Ridloff—not only because she signs throughout the entire play, but because she is one of the most expressive people I’ve ever seen. Physically small, she has massive presence as she literally embodies her role, communicating with her eyes, her face, her posture and entire being in a way that rings clear and true.

In an age when much is made of the need for women to raise their voices and speak their truths, in opting to withhold her spoken voice as a teenager, Ridloff found her true one, and in Children of a Lesser God , everyone hears her, loud and clear.

5 things I’ve done since having a baby I was told I’d never do again

by

Jamie Reed

posted in Parenting

It’s a bit of a shock to realize my baby will be 5 months old this week. In some ways it feels as if he’s been controlling my life an adorable addition for much longer, and in other ways it’s like I only just found out I was pregnant.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about all the “helpful” advice people gave me before the baby, telling me all the things I’d never do again, now that I was going to be a mom. (I wrote about that  here.)

Not only have I done ALL of the things, I’ve done them quite a bit. Moms-to-be, don’t panic. Here are the things you’ll still get to do after having a baby:

1. Go out to eat

Granted I did pretty much stay tucked away in my house for the first couple of months of my baby’s life, but that was really due to the crazy cold/flu season we experienced. Once my pediatrician said things were calming down, we broke out of the house and have taken the baby all over the place. I imagine eating with a toddler will prove challenging in other ways, but for now, he’s pretty easy to transport wherever we decide to go.

mom and baby in restaurant

2. Travel

While I haven’t taken the baby on any big trips yet, I have done a little traveling on my own recently. A few days in California were quite lovely and I was really refreshed when I got home. My husband and I also have a couple of weekend trips planned for the summer, both with and without the baby. Is it harder to travel with a baby? Sure. It helps that we have grandparents near by and a pretty content baby.

landscape from airplane

3. Sleep through the night

When I was close to the end of my pregnancy I was sharing some fears with a friend. So many people were telling me sleep horror stories (and just general baby horror stories) and they were getting in my head. My friend listened to my fears and said, “You know, some babies actually do sleep. You might get one of those.” Huh.

Even better than hearing those hopeful words? The fact that she was right.

So far, my son has always been a good sleeper. We had to wake him up in the beginning to eat. When he hit 3-4 months he was sleeping 4-6 hours at a time during the night and now that he’s 5 months old? He’s sleeping 7-10 hours solid a night! (And yes, I know that not everyone gets a baby who’s a great sleeper, but, pregnant moms, don’t panic just yet. It can happen to you!)

4. Take a shower

Were there days in the beginning where I wore the same outfit for three days solid and couldn’t remember the last time I washed my hair? Definitely. But things settled down and now I’m bathing at least a couple of times of month. 😉

baby playing on mat

That play mat goes everywhere, including the bathroom while I shower and dry my hair! He’s not too sure about the hair dryer…

5. Wear something other than yoga pants

I wear sweat pants too!

Sure, some days are spent in the clothes I slept in, but in my defense that happened pre-baby too. (I work from home.) I actually like getting dressed for the day, even if the only person who gets to appreciate my outfit is an adorable drool-machine. Though I will say wearing heels again after months of flats during pregnancy has been an adjustment. I feel like I’m a kid playing dress-up.

mother and baby in clothing store

Proof I put on “real” clothes AND leave the house occasionally!

It’s been reassuring that so many things have returned to how they were. My husband and I spend our evenings making and eating dinner, catching our favorite television shows, and trying to make plans for the days ahead. As big as an adjustment a baby is (and yes, it’s a BIG adjustment), life will take on a new normal. You’ll eventually find some form of a routine, and carry on almost like you did before. Almost.

Have you managed to do any of the things people say you wouldn’t do post baby?

R. Kelly Apologizes to Fans Amid #MuteRKelly Campaign: ‘I’ve Never Heard of a Show Being Canceled Because of Rumors’ [Video]

R. Kelly’s scheduled performance in Chicago on May 5 for the UIC Pavilion’s Pre-Mother’s Day Love Jam has been cancelled — thanks in part to the #MuteRKelly campaign.

On Sunday, R. Kelly took to social media to apologize to his fans for the cancellation.

“First of all, I want to apologize to all of my fans in Chicago, and basically all around the world wherever I’m performing at and they canceled me,” he said. “I don’t know why they canceled the show. I never heard of a show being canceled because of rumors, but I guess there’s a first time for everything. So I apologize to you guys and in the meantime, I’m going to try to get to the bottom line of it, you know, as far as my lawyers are concerned, and see exactly what happened and why I was canceled.”

The May 5 show would’ve been his first in Chicago since the ‘sex cult’ allegations were published last July.

A petition signed by 1,300 students at the University of Illinois in Chicago called for the cancellation of R. Kelly’s concert on May 5, citing “overwhelming public evidence of [Kelly’s] history of sexual misconduct.” The letter, co-written by Natalie Bennett of the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center at UIC, was to be sent to UIC Chancellor Michael Amiridis upon reaching 1,500 signatures.

With Time’s Up joining the #MuteRKelly campaign, we expect several (if not all) of R. Kelly’s shows to be cancelled in the coming weeks.

Segregation Was Never Good For Black People. Not Even A Little Bit [Opinion]

Segregation was never good for black people. We were not better off during Jim Crow. Not even a little bit. Those who wax nostalgically about how we thrived during segregation and leveraged it to our economic advantage to support and sustain healthy, strong black communities are just straight-up wrong.
We need to stop romanticizing life for African Americans before integration. The overwhelming majority of black people were trapped in abject poverty (or at best, a fragile subsistence), locked out of nearly every profession or industry where they could gain access to significant income and wealth, regardless of their level of education or social-economic status. We were also excluded from Wall Street and other centers of capital and investment. (In fact, for much of America’s history prior to integration, not only could we not acquire stock and commodities—we were counted as livestock ourselves). As recently as the 1950s, the rare African American with a Ph.D. could hope for no better than a job as a teacher or minister.
And the great black entrepreneurs in the age of segregation operated with absolutely zero legal protection or civil rights, essentially deprived of any legal means of protecting their assets/wealth. Laws both civil and criminal were set up so that white people could take property, money, land, etc. from black people with impunity. And what they couldn’t take, they would destroy—the devastating 1921 race riot that destroyed Tulsa, Oklahoma’s “Black Wall Street” is the best known, but far from the only example of this truth. Countless black people, including (maybe especially) the educated and relatively wealthy—including many WWI veterans who tasted freedom in Europe—were lynched (concurrent with the establishment and rise of the Ku Klux Klan) in order to eliminate them as a source of economic competition and as a way to use terror to keep blacks “in their place.”
The vast majority of people who talk today about how much better off black people were during segregation have lived most, if not all of their lives, in the post-segregation era. I’ve interviewed many people who actually lived through Jim Crow segregation (most are now in their 80s or 90s or older), including my late grandfather, who died at age 97 in 2008 less than six months before Barack Obama was elected to the U.S. presidency. I can’t remember any of them wishing to go back to the way things were during segregation. Today, we operate with unequal protection and access as black people; they operated with zero protection and access. If any of us black people born after 1960 were magically transported back to 1921, 1931 or even 1951, most of us wouldn’t last a month.
No matter how much we struggle with injustice and racism today, our better is in pushing forward, not going back to a nostalgic, selectively imagined, segregated past.

Internet Explorer hacking patch

If you or any of your loved ones are still using Internet Explorer — and yes, I do mean true IE, not Microsoft Edge — then you probably already realize that you’re a good 15 years behind the times. But if you need a good nudge to get you (or your company’s IT department) off this addiction before it ruins more good families, this news should do it.

A hacking group is actively exploiting a zero-day exploit in Internet Explorer to infect Windows PCs with malware, according to researchers. A team from Qihoo 360’s Core security unit “say an advanced persistent threat (APT) group is using the IE vulnerability on a “global scale,” according to ZDNet. The vulnerability is being exploited using an infected Office document, loaded with something called a “double-kill” vulnerability.

The Word Is Out: Never Wear These Shoes With Leggings 

There is no denying that leggings have become a streetwear staple to the wardrobes of nearly every It girl in existence. Remember the great debate of whether or not leggings were pants? Well, that’s been put to rest, as celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Chrissy Teigen not only wear them on the regular, but they style them in ways unthinkable. In case you weren’t aware, Gigi and Chrissy have the same stylist, Monica Rose, and during a three-day trip hosted by Reebok, I had the opportunity to interview the genius herself.

Curious to pick her brain on all things legging- and sneaker-related, I first asked Monica what the best sneakers to wear with leggings are. She said, “I think a [Reebok] classic leather is good to wear. I just think it’s such a comfortable shoe. When I wear them, I’m excited for work and excited to be comfortable. But for leggings, I think any sneaker really goes with them.” If you aren’t familiar with the Classic Leather sneakers Monica speaks so highly of, don’t worry, we shopped out the best colors below.

In addition to the best sneakers to wear with leggings, I asked Monica what the one item was she would never style with leggings. Without hesitation, she clearly stated to consider leaving your thigh-high boots at home. If Monica Rose, the mastermind behind some of the most memorable looks in fashion right now, says she would never put thigh-high boots with leggings, that means the powerful clan that is Monica’s clients won’t be wearing that boot style with leggings anytime soon.

Go on to shop the sneakers Monica Rose says look the best with leggings, including the Reebok Classic Leather style.

Elon Musk says Autopilot will never be perfect but can ‘reduce accidents by a factor of 10’

Elon Musk Tesla Autopilot

Earlier today, CBS This Morning aired a new clip from its sit-down interview with Tesla CEO Elon Musk. The clip below centers on Tesla’s Autopilot feature, a topic that has been in the news quite a bit over the past few weeks following a tragic crash that saw a Model X in Autopilot mode careen into a highway divider before the vehicle’s battery pack burst into flames.

In the wake of the accident, Tesla said that the car’s Autopilot system warned the driver to place his hands on the wheel in the seconds leading up to the crash, warnings that Tesla claims were not heeded.

Kim Zolciak Says She’s ‘Never’ Appearing on ‘RHOA’ Again

Never say never? Kim Zolciak-Biermann said on Saturday, April 14, that she is done for good with the Real Housewives of Atlanta and won’t appear on the Bravo hit again.

Biermann and her husband, Kroy Biermann, were caught on video by TMZ at the airport on Saturday and the Don’t Be Tardy star said that she will “never, never” appear on RHOA again, saying that it is “too much stress, unneeded stress.”

The reality star, 39, returned to Real Housewives this season, but feuded on-camera and off with costar and rival NeNe Leakes.

Earlier this week, E! NewsJason Kennedy spoke to Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen and said that he’d Skyped with Biermann, who told him that she was “done with the Housewives.”

“She’s tired of the NeNe stuff. This is over,” Kennedy added.

“I think she’s done,” Cohen agreed. “She walked out of that reunion and I was like, ‘OK, I’ve seen the last of that wig at these reunions.’”

As previously reported, Biermann and Leakes went head-to-head during the season 10 reunion, which aired earlier this month. Biermann stormed off the set and broke down in tears backstage after Leakes, 50, yelled at her and called her “f—king trash.”

The pair had been sparring for months after Biermann’s eldest daughter, Brielle Biermann, posted a video that allegedly showed a cockroach on the floor of Leakes’ bathroom. The Glee alum then went on a social media rant, slamming the mother-daughter duo and accusing them of being racist.

“I will never understand the mentality of women aged 40+ attacking another woman for hours on end,” Brielle tweeted last month in Kim’s defense. “I wish they would channel that negativity and anger for someone who is positive, loving, caring, beautiful! Etc. into something positive. Maybe then they’d be happy.”

Places nature never intended for us to live

ADVERTISEMENT

Humans are extremely adaptable. Having first come out of Africa and dealing with all the natural hardships there, human beings dispersed throughout the planet to inhabit every corner of the globe. There are several places on the planet which were simply not meant for human habitation. But humans are tough, and people have persevered despite the immense odds against them. Here are five of those places.

La Rinconada, Peru

This Peruvian village way up in the Andes is considered to be the town at the highest altitude in the world. Anyone wanting to travel there must drive on narrow roads along cliff faces with no guard rails. It’s not a place for the faint of heart. Once you get to town you can see the true reason why it’s so crazy humans live there – the entire town is built on a glacier! But why are people moving to this town situated on an (invariably) melting glacier at 16,700 feet? The town’s giant gold mine of course.

Pompeii, Italy

About 2000 years ago, Pompeii was a city full of debauchery and thieves until one day the volcano right next to the city erupted. The eruption was so violent and sudden that entire buildings and even people were preserved in the ash to this day! No one in their right mind would rebuild     a town there because as we all know, history repeats itself.

Except the town was in fact rebuilt, and the city now has 25,000 residents. The volcano also continues to erupt, having wiped out other towns in 1906 and again in 1944.

Motuo, China

This southern Chinese county sitting on the southern side of the Himalayan mountains is one of the most remote places in the world. Moist air gets trapped in this area by the mountains, creating a rainforest here which will destroy and eat everything that isn’t nailed down – and even some stuff that is! There are no roads here as the ground is too wet and muddy to build on. There are also no stores or even hospitals! And yet, despite all of this, there are 10,000 people who live in this Chinese county, receiving supplies from couriers on motorcycles.

Verkhoyansk, Russia

This Russian city of 1,500 is known as the coldest city in the world, with typical winter highs only reaching -50 degrees Fahrenheit! The place is so cold and remote that the Russian Czars and Soviets used to send their political enemies here. If you try to escape, you’ll either freeze to death or starve. Also, during the summer, the sun only shines for five hours!

The Maldives

These tropical islands are known as paradises for foreigners, but the majority of the country’s 329,000 strong population is squeezed onto the tiny atoll of Male. This collection of islands is super tough to live on, especially since most of the Sunni Muslim inhabitants are super poor and dependent on tourist dollars. In addition to the lack of room on these islands, rising water levels are threatening the very land upon which this country is built!

So mom guilt never goes away, huh?

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Life

I thought it would be long gone by now, kind of like my belly bands and maternity jeans. I thought I’d have wriggled free and moved on. It would be just another memory of the early days, like pump parts and nursing pads.

But mom guilt is still very much with me.

It emerged again this morning as a friend and I discussed preschools. As we chatted, the questions looped through my head like an endless chyron.

Was I wrong to pull my son from his previous school? The place we’re at now is more convenient for me, but is it the best place for him? He gets less time outside now but more time with me, so is that a decent tradeoff? Where would he thrive more? What if he hates it? What if he hates me for putting him here?

I don’t know what I’m supposed to do to shake the mom guilt.

I’ve let go of so many of the other issues that plagued me when my son was a baby. I successfully emerged on the other side from postpartum depression. I researched all the things — ALL the things, from nursing, co-sleeping, and sleep training to every type of parenting style — and I tried my best to make the best decisions for my family. And I feel like I finally found my groove as a mama.

So I thought when a certain number of milestones were achieved, the mom guilt would simply dissolve. POOF! Gone forever.

I imagined that after some time had passed, after I relaxed into my role as a parent, after I successfully made some decisions and watched my son thrive, there’d be no place for mom guilt to hide. I expected that the weight would leave my shoulders and that I would stride into every decision with confidence and have no regrets. But still the mom guilt lurks.

It slinks under every decision I make. When I have a dinner out with friends. When I work overtime. When I opt to hug out a tantrum with my son rather than do a time out. I know I’m not in a position to provide my son with everything, but I try to make up for it with love.

And what if that’s not enough? I second-guess myself. I feel bad, even though I’m not sure that following an alternative path would have made me feel any better.

What I’m learning is that mom guilt is a companion that will follow me all the way through motherhood, like a shadow. There are moments of the day when it will be more prominent, as well as times when it will seemingly disappear. I guess I just have to make friends with it — or at the very least, get used to it.

How do you ease your mom guilt?

A letter to my son about the weird things parents do (and never imagined)

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Life

Dear son,

Last night you screamed for me.

You’re well into age 3, so you’ve been sleeping through the night for a while now. A scream at 2 a.m. is unusual. That means when you cry out in your sleep, as you did last night, it slices right through the dark like an arrow and pierces my dream bubble. (Wait for me, Jon Hamm. I’ll be back soon, I promise.)

The moment I hear your bold, brassy cry, I leap from my bed and run to your side. Like Miss Clavel in the Madeline books, I know at once something is not right.

The world's most adorable boy, sleeping in a bed full of stuffed animals

 

In this particular instance, however, you screamed because you had to pee.

You are a child who knows how to wake up and use the bathroom by yourself. You’ve done it before. You do it all the time. But last night you were too tired to move. In fact, you shrieked at the very idea of getting out of bed, as though I asked you to do something reprehensible, like cuddle with a rattlesnake.

“No get out of bed,” you whined.

I get it. Trust me, I do. But on this one thing, I had to stand my ground.

“You must get out of bed. You’ll feel so much better,” I coaxed.

“My bed is a boat,” you said, obviously still dreaming. Then you stood at the edge of your mattress and tugged at your pajama pants. “I know! I will pee in the ocean. That is a great idea.”

“Nope. No peeing in the ocean,” I said, reaching for you. “Uh, sharks are in the ocean. And sharks smell pee. And you don’t want sharks to find you, do you?”

You’re a big boy now, so close to being 4 years old, which means when I have to carry you into the bathroom in the middle of the night, you’re heavier than a Volkswagen Beetle.

I held your upper body while my husband, who roused during the ruckus, grabbed your feet. Together we levitated you above the toilet and hoped for the best. Like, imagine a crop duster flying low over a field to spray fertilizer, but an airborne child hovering over a toilet in the dark. That was you.

Once the flow started, it was like a garden hose that has been turned on with full force and has a mind of its own, spraying everything everywhere, dancing away from the very people trying to contain it. After about two weeks, you were finally done peeing.

The world's cutest toddler, standing in cream and black pajamas, smiling

 

They say close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, but I think it should also count with toddler urine and bathrooms. Most of it made it into the bowl — and absolutely none of it was in your bedroom — so I considered that a win.

Once you were finished, I pulled up your miraculously dry pajamas and wrangled you back into your room. As soon as your head hit the pillow and I placed your stuffed cat in your arms, you began to snore.

Your daddy and I were up for much longer.

“This is parenthood,” I said, gazing up at the ceiling.

“Yeah, most of the things we do, I never even imagined we would do,” my husband said. “Gross things. Weird things. Bizarre situations. And it’s just another Sunday night for us.”

Tonight you cried out in your sleep. Again.

This time you had a nightmare about sharks — and that is totally my fault. I’m sorry.

Love, Mommy

Does your child scream out in the night?

Pooparoos are the toys your kids never knew they needed

by

Michelle Stein

posted in Products

Is it just me, or do kids’ toys keep getting weirder and weirder?

Granted, I never really “got” the whole let’s-see-which-tiny-toys-shaped-like-food-or-animals-or-furniture-with-faces-on-them fad. *Cough* Shopkins *Cough* Hatchimals *Cough* But seriously, what is with all of the poop-themed toys and games these days?

My dad gifted the kids this cat that eats and then poops out kibble while making farting noises. (We’ve lovingly nicknamed it “Fart Kitty.”) The same grandfather bought my son Poo-dough. We also have a fart gun that is nothing but a loud speaker with a trigger that prompts a series of explosive, wet-sounding fart noises. And the games Toilet Trouble and Don’t Step In It both sound right up my kids’ alley, too.

Apparently, both tiny toy surprises and poop sell when it comes to kids’ toys. So why not combine the best of both worlds? From the looks of it, that’s exactly what the creators of Pooparoos were thinking.

So here’s the lowdown on this quirky toy, which sells for just under 10 bucks at Walmart. Each unit comes with its own toilet, a mystery Pooparoos pet (one of eight figures,) a pooper scooper, and three mystery pieces of “pet food”/poop.

After your kid finds out which Pooparoos pet is hiding in the potty, apparently they add water to the toilet and then pop in the bags of mystery pet food to reveal which tiny foods are inside.

Finally, your kiddo can make his Pooparoos pet eat the food … and then poop it back out again. Repeat.

Charming little critters, right? (Except, in my opinion, that cupcake looks a little too happy that it’s being shot of the Pooparoos pet’s butt.) See them in action for yourself, in the video below!

If you’re like me, you’re probably looking at the calendar and wondering if this is some elaborate April Fool’s Day joke. But alas, they are real and people seriously buy them.

And honestly? I’m 100-percent positive that my kids would love them. Because poop is hilarious and surprises are fun. And making your fun surprise poop-out other fun surprises? I hate to say it, but Mattel could really be on to something, here.

What do you think of Pooparoos? Do you think your kids would love them?

There’s a Good Chance Game of Thrones Fans Will Never See This Character Again

Although Lord Edmure Tully hasn’t been seen on Game of Thrones since Jaime Lannister used him a pawn to conquer Riverrun, it seemed as though fans may still learn his fate in the show’s final season. However, according to Tobias Menzies—who played Catelyn Stark’s doltish younger brother—the chances of Edmure returning aren’t looking too good.

During a recent interview with Digital Spy, Menzies was asked whether his character is still spending his days locked away in the Frey’s dungeon since Arya Stark used her face-swapping skills to massacre the entire Frey family. “The honest answer is, I have no idea,” he replied. “He’s obviously somewhere in a prison, he’s still around alive somewhere. They’re pretty stingy with their information and I’ve not heard anything from them.”

There’s always the chance that Menzies is giving fans the ol’ Kit Harington run-around. However, considering the rest of the cast has been filming season eight for quite some time, if he is telling the truth, that’s probably a wrap on Edmure.

But not to worry, Menzies is still going to be gracing our television screens: Netflix announced Wednesday that the 44-year-old actor is set to take over the role of Prince Phillip from Matt Smith in season three of The Crown.

If you’re like most people, there are areas that you never even think about cleaning, unlikely places where dirt, dust, and germs may be lurking. Even if your home has its share of “dirty little secrets,” you’re not alone: A 2012 survey sponsored by Kenmore found that nearly half of Americans—49 percent—say they cut corners when vacuuming by skipping areas underneath or behind furniture, and clean only when they see visible dirt on the floor.

Here’s Why You Should Never Lend Out Your Credit Card

Lending a friend or family member your credit card is a really bad idea, according to a new national CreditCards.com study.

Of the 49% of credit card holders—past and present—35% of them said they’ve had negative experiences. The most common problem people run into when they allow others to use their credit card: overspending.

Last month, a Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. study revealed that an overwhelming majority (80%) of African Americans are more likely to financially help out a family member than 66% of whites. Could African Americans, in the name of helping out a family member, be putting themselves in financial jeopardy?

“You really are playing with fire when you let someone else use your credit card, so proceed with caution,” CreditCards.com Senior Industry Analyst Matt Schulz said. “Whether they spend more than you anticipated, don’t pay you back, or you never see the card again, ultimately, you are the one who is responsible.”

The study also found that younger people (ages 18–37) faced an unfavorable result compared to 31% of Gen X (ages 38–53) and 26% of Baby Boomers (ages 54–72). Others complained about not getting refunded. Ten percent even said their card was either never returned or lost.

The study concluded that most people who have owned a credit card would let immediate family members borrow it and half of them said they are comfortable with a family member spending at least $ 100. Thirty-nine percent say they would never lend their card to an immediate family member.

What the study found was that the less you make, the more likely you are to be burned. More than half (52%) of low-income earners who have lent their credit cards to someone have had negative experiences. The number drops down to a quarter for those making more than $ 30,000.

50 Cent Admits He Never Owned or Invested In Bitcoin

50 Cent does not, in fact, own or has ever owned any bitcoin.The Queens rapper admitted in court documents that he did not make $ 8 million in bitcoin by accepting the cryptocurrency as a form of payment for his 2014 album, Animal Ambition.

In a court document filed in bankruptcy court, first obtained by The Blast last Friday, rapper Curtis Jackson admitted that he “never owned, does not own, a bitcoin account or any bitcoins and to the best of his knowledge, none of his companies had a bitcoin account from 2014 to the present.”

A third party, Central Nervous, however, did manage the website of G-Unit Records, 50 Cent’s record label from which all his albums and merchandises were sold among other things, bitcoin, the court documents said. Although Central Nervous processed the online sales and accepted bitcoins as payment, the bitcoins accepted were converted to U.S. dollars through Bitpay, and that it was the converted U.S. dollars, not bitcoins, that G-Unit received.

To the best of my knowledge, at no time were any foreign or domestic accounts maintained by me or my business entities to keep either foreign currencies or bitcoin,” Jackson said in the court statement.

The 42-year-old rapper said as long as the publicity he got from the news that he made millions in bitcoin didn’t damage his image or brand, “I usually do not feel the need to publicly deny the reporting” even when the reports are based on “misunderstanding of facts or outright falsehoods.”

When TMZ, a gossip website broke the news in January, the rapper wrote a post on Instagram saying, “I forgot I did that” because he said he had forgotten that he was, in fact, one of the first rappers to accept bitcoin as payments for online transactions.

To prove that he is indeed bankrupt, he had to come clean about the nature of his involvement with the cryptocurrency. View the official court document below:

Why you should never, ever, swing a child by the arms

by

Michelle Stein

posted in Parenting

My family learned the hard way just how easy it is for a little kid’s arm to pop out of place and end up with nursemaid’s elbow.

Also known as radial head dislocation or a pulled elbow, nursemaid’s elbow happens when the radius slips out of its normal place at the elbow joint. This typically affects children younger than 4, and it happens when the child is pulled up too hard by the wrist or hand — like swinging him by the arms or lifting him by the hand to help him up a big step. It’s common. And it’s painful.

We were at my nephew’s birthday party last year when it happened. Our then 2-old-daughter was facing my husband and holding his hands while shifting her entire body weight backward. My husband kept pulling her back up to a standing position, sometimes lifting her feet gently off the ground in the process. She thought it was great. Until it wasn’t.

We had no idea what had happened when she started crying. Hard.

It was past nap time, so we figured she was overly tired — or just mad it was time to stop using Daddy as a jungle gym. I held her in my arms until she eventually calmed down and fell asleep. (I guess she just needed a nap, right? Or maybe she was coming down with something?) But then she woke up, still whining. It wasn’t until after we drove home from the party that we noticed she wasn’t using her one arm normally. And she started crying again when I asked her to try to bend it. That’s when I remembered the arm swinging — and nagging my husband to be careful at the time — and knew something was seriously wrong.

Since it was Sunday evening, we ended up taking H to the emergency room. The ER doctor suspected she had a pulled elbow right away. She put one hand in the crease of her elbow and then did some weird maneuver to pop it back into place. H immediately stopped whimpering and had full use of her arm again. I’m so glad we took her in because as it turns out, trying to pop the arm back into place on your own could cause further harm.

My husband felt so bad for unintentionally causing our daughter pain. She hasn’t had any issues since this incident, but still. Lesson learned. Don’t make our mistake!

Topshop jeans: the styles that will never let you down, from the Joni to the Baxter

For the initiated as well as the uninitiated

topshop jeans

I’ll never forget my first pair of Topshop jeans. A pair of black Jamie jeans for those of you asking. To say it was a revelation is an understatement. I’d come to the UK to study, and before I set foot in Toppers, I didn’t know jeans could come in different lengths, well jeans I could afford that is. At 5f3″, I was forever getting my mum to hem my trousers for me (thanks mum).

After finding that perfect pair of skinny black jeans that I could literally wear as soon as I left the shop, I couldn’t go back, and have worn Topshop jeans ever since. They seriously last for years. These days, I’m more into their  wide leg culotte and cropped mum jean styles, though I’ve still got my pair of trusted skinny jeans too.

For those of you who aren’t already converts (many of you obviously are as one pair of jeans is sold every 10 seconds in Topshop), here’s a quick guide of which jeans to buy depending on what you’re after.

Topshop Jamie jeans

As i’ve mentioned before, the Jamie jeans are the ultimate style when it comes to finding the perfect skinny, and it will flatter most shapes. It’s a high rise so it holds the tummy in, and is cropped at the ankle which is how I like my jeans, though if you prefer them longer, just pick a slightly longer length.

Topshop Joni jeans

If the Jamie isn’t quite skinny enough for you, then the Joni will provide that spray-on denim look you’re after. It’s super stretchy and a high rise, giving it a slightly vintage twist.

Topshop Leigh jeans

If you’re looking for that timeless denim piece, then the Leigh is for you. The mid-rise, skinny style is one of Topshop’s most popular jeans.

Topshop petite jeans

There’s nothing more disappointing than jeans gone baggy after a wash, especially if you’re petite. Luckily, most Topshop jeans come in Petite version meaning you’ve always got the perfect fit.

Topshop tall jeans

I mentioned that Topshop was a saviour for short girls, but the same goes for tall ones, as there is a Tall range which goes up to 36″ length.
