Best Beach Books And The Towns They’re Based In

ADVERTISEMENT


Are you someone that enjoys sitting back with a good book at the beach? It’s pretty relaxing lying there with the sun shining down on you as you escape into a brilliant new world. Of course, what’s better than reading a book at the beach? Reading a book that’s set at the beach. If you’re looking for somewhere sunny to spend your next vacation, the places featured in these great reads might be the best place to visit.

French Riviera (Bonjour Tristesse)

“Bonjour Tristesse” has been around for quite a while now. It was written back in the ‘50s, making it a classic by today’s standard. Centered around a teenager enjoying summer in the French Riviera, it’s a story full of love, revenge and betrayal – a true drama. It was considered a bit raunchy when it was first released, but it’s no “Fifty Shades of Grey.” The French Riviera is not only the perfect setting for the story, but it’s also a great place to enjoy the book. There’s nowhere more elegant to sit by the coast and enjoy the juicy story.

Australia (The Bodysurfers)

Robert Drewe is a big name in Australia, and after reading his work, it’s clear to see why. “The Bodysurfers,” which is a collection of short stories set on the country’s glorious coastline, recreates the breathtaking landscape perfectly. You’d never need to visit the country to know what it’s like to chill out on the beaches there, but you absolutely should. You can learn about the happenings of the Lang family all while soaking up the golden sun. What could be more perfect?

Rodanthe (Nights in Rodanthe)

Nicholas Sparks is pretty much the king of the modern-day romance novel. Loads of his works have been turned into films, and they’ve all done pretty well for themselves. One of the author’s best is “Nights in Rodanthe,” which follows two divorced singletons as they fall in love on vacation. Their romance is rocked by the realization that going home will mean having to leave each other, and is partly inspired by real-life events. As the title suggests, the story takes place in Rodanthe, a town in North Carolina. The coastal location has a very small community, so it’s ideal if you want some peace and quiet to enjoy your book.

Martha’s Vineyard (The Identicals)

As a New York Times bestselling author, Elin Hilderbrand knows a thing or two about writing. Her book “The Identicals” proves that. Set around Massachusetts, the novel explores the relationship between two twin sisters. Although their differences broke them apart over the years, they’re forced to face their issues when a family crisis brings them together. As with Sparks’ novel, “The Identicals” borrows elements from Hilderbrand’s own life, including the use of twins and the setting of Martha’s Vineyard. The island is a popular destination in the summer, with its population more than quadrupling on a yearly basis. People can’t get enough of all the coastal opportunities on offer.

Florida/Cuba (The Old Man and the Sea)

Ernest Hemmingway is one of the most respected writers of his generation. He’s given us many great works, including the short novel “The Old Man and the Sea.” As the story is about a fisherman, part of the book is set out to sea, most notably in the Florida Straits. The areas near this stretch of water like Fort Lauderdale and Fort Pierce make for great vacation spots, although you can’t pass up the chance to visit Cuba either. You’re sure to be engrossed in the story of Santiago and his quest for a large marlin as you enjoy the intense Cuban heat.

There’s nothing like escaping into another world thanks to a good book, especially when it’s set somewhere in real life. Not only do these coastal reads offer us a great story to get engrossed in, but they also give us fantastic inspiration for our next vacation.

See these fast-disappearing natural wonders while they’re still around

The intricate workings of the Mother Nature are something many of us take for granted every day. However, we aren’t alone. While we want to explore the world, it looks as though we might have to get moving is we want to see these fast-disappearing natural wonders while they’re still around. Best get booking those tickets!

Great Barrier Reef

Of course, we couldn’t have the list without including the Great Barrier Reef. Found in Australia, this ecosystem stretches over 1,200 miles and consists of some of the most breathtaking sights in the world. Sadly, global warming means that 93% of the reef has been killed off already. If that wasn’t enough to scare you, it’s thought the reef might not even exist at all by 2030 if people continue the way we are.

Antarctic Peninsula

This is the northernmost part of Antarctica. Here, the ice covers up many Arctic islands that have remained hidden for so long. Already, 40% of the ice has melted. Although the melting ice will make it easier to explore these unknown lands, it is essential for many ecosystems to survive such as whales, seals, and penguins. We could soon be waving goodbye to some of these creatures if we aren’t careful.

Joshua Tree National Park

Hidden in California is this national park filled with Joshua trees. However, The Golden State has been all over the news in the last few years thanks to the many droughts from the passing summers. The desert would once receive five inches of rainfall. Now, they are getting less than one. Unfortunately, Joshua trees are struggling to reproduce. If there isn’t a substantial rainfall soon, these trees could quickly begin to fade away.

The Maldives

These are the islands that are on the front of every holiday brochure. Yes, we’re talking about The Maldives. Sadly, it looks as though we might have to take a trip soon if we want to see a slice of paradise for ourselves. The islands are set so low that rising sea levels mean they could soon be lost forever. The president of the country, Mohamed Nasheed, aims to have the country fossil fuel free by 2020. However, if that doesn’t work, they have purchased surrounding land to house their 380,000 inhabitants.

Mount Kilimanjaro Glacier

In Africa lies a mountain that was once one of the biggest challenges for climbers everywhere. However, the mountain is rapidly shrinking thanks to the melting ice cap at the summit. As the ice caps melt, the dark soil underneath is exposed. In turn, this absorbs more heat and causes even more melting. Now, it’s stuck in a never-ending cycle. Unfortunately, over 85% of the glacier is gone. Although they have been on Earth for 10,000 years, it’s believed the ice will be melted within 15 years.

The Dead Sea

Did you know this sea is ten times saltier than any other ocean on the planet? This makes it a massive attraction for tourists thanks to its many health benefits. However, the ‘80s saw many hotels crop up all along the shoreline. These have caused the sea levels to drop by 80 feet – roughly 2 billion gallons every year – as well as losing a third of the sea’s surface. As if that wasn’t enough, major sinkholes are also opening up all along the shoreline and taking even more of the beauty with it. It could be time to book a ticket before it’s gone for good!

The world is a beautiful planet, but it looks as though we might have to work a whole lot harder if we want to keep it looking so stunning. In the meantime, this seems like the perfect chance to see these fast-disappearing natural wonders while they’re still around, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone.

Rihanna Has Reportedly Accumulated Over 500 Songs for Her Upcoming Dancehall Album: ‘They’re Only Choosing 10 Records’

A new Rihanna album is on the way!

According to a new report from Rolling Stone, Rih has been hard at work crafting the sound of her upcoming dancehall-inspired album and has amassed over 500 songs in the process.

A Vogue profile first mentioned that Rihanna was working on a dancehall album back in May.

via Rolling Stone:

It’s common for stars at Rihanna’s level to cull the best demos from reams of submissions when selecting songs for albums. “[Rihanna’s team] have, no lie, 500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers,” explains one dancehall producer who asked to remain anonymous. “They’re only choosing 10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now. I’ve been flying to Miami, flying to L.A., cutting records nonstop for this project.”

“Every artist, every producer, every songwriter in Jamaica or of Jamaican descent has been working on [Rihanna’s album] and has little snippets of publishing or production credits on it,” another source close to the project says. “I think they’ve got eight songs,” he continues, “but her A&R is still asking for records.” “They’re looking for one more [song],” adds a third source with knowledge of the album-making process.

Through a rep, Rihanna declined to comment on the new album.

If Rihanna’s team likes a submission, they will do “some tweaking,” according to a second producer. “I didn’t even get the final [version of the song I turned in],” the producer adds. “I got the semi-final, and then I got the contracts. They ask my opinions, but you wouldn’t expect Rihanna to work with people that don’t do good work – they did some good work on it.”

But another producer who submitted material for the album worries the star is diluting the Caribbean aspects of the music. “Their whole thing was, ‘Yo, we’re gonna make this [album] real dancehall, [real] Caribbean,’” says the producer. “Rihanna is Bajan, so let’s make this a full project like that. To me, it hasn’t been going that way. They’re kind of mixing it up, putting in the pop. If the reggae artists and producers won’t get the chance on the pop album, at least let us survive on the dancehall album. They’re changing up the direction continuously.“

England Lost in the World Cup and the ‘They’re Going Home’ Memes Are Here

Following England’s devastating loss to Croatia in the World Cup semi-final, Twitter was rife with jokes poking fun at the “It’s coming home” rallying cry of the English fan base.

With a little over 10 minutes to go in extra time of Wednesday’s match, Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic fired a shot into the back of the net to give his team a 2-1 lead over England. The English squad was unable to come up with an equalizer in the remaining time, officially ending their chances of reaching their first World Cup final since 1966.

But as if the loss itself wasn’t crushing enough, it was then that the “They’re going home” memes began to appear. Those rooting against England were all too quick to turn their fans’ cheer of “It’s coming home”—which has risen in popularity throughout the 2018 World Cup—into a taunt.

See some of the “They’re going home” memes below.

‘Teen Mom 2’ Recap: Briana and Javi Finally Admit They’re Dating

Together at last! Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus made things official during Monday, June 4, episode of Teen Mom 2. Even though they tried to act like one big happy family with their children, their relationship with Kailyn Lowry couldn’t be worse. Also, Chelsea Houska faced Adam Lind in court and can finally sleep soundly again. Find out what you might have missed during this week’s episode of Teen Mom 2.

Chelsea Finally Feels Her Daughter is Safe

It was finally time for Chelsea to face her ex in court to try to hyphenate her daughter’s last name to match her and her husband Cole Deboer’s name. She also wanted to get her visitation agreement changed so that Adam could only see Aubree in a visitation center. She couldn’t be more nervous to faceher ex, who she hadn’t seen in about a year.
“I hate that I doubt myself,” Chelsea said and continued to worry about her intentions. “Am I being ridiculous? Can you be too ridiculous when it comes to your child?”

In the end, everything went Chelsea’s way, and she cried on the car ride home because she finally felt like Aubree was in a safe situation.

Teen Mom 2 Recap
Chelsea MTV

“I just feel like a weight is lifted off my shoulders,” Chelsea said. They celebrated by telling Aubree about the name change by writing it on a cake, and Aubree was over-the-moon.

Briana and Javi are Official

After weeks of beating around the bush, Briana finally admitted that she and Javi were “boyfriend and girlfriend.” She went to Delaware to celebrate Lincoln’s birthday with the kids. She even made Javi and their children matching shirts for the party.

“I’m looking forward to today,” Javi said, and the two were acting like they were married already even though they just made it official. Javi was stressed about the Kailyn situation, but was mushy about having Briana to help him through it. “It’s nice having you by my side,” he told her.

Teen Mom 2 Recap
Kailyn MTV

Even though last week’s episode made it seem like Kailyn was in a relationship with her friend Dom, she shut rumors down this week by declaring she was too busy dealing with other people to be in a relationship. Although she was mostly referring to her children, the Briana/Javi drama might also have had something to do with it.

When Javi decided Briana was going to go to Lincoln’s party that he was supposed to cohost with Kailyn, Kailyn dropped out and had her own party. Briana exchanged some vicious texts with Javi’s ex, and it caught Kailyn off guard.

“Shut the f—k up cause now I’m mad. S—k my d—k, you dumb bitch,” Briana texted Kailyn when Kailyn said she didn’t want to meet up with her to talk thing about.

After that explosion, Kailyn prohibited the crew from filming any part of the party because Briana was there. “I don’t think that she’s a good person,” Kailyn said. “I don’t want anything to do with him.”

Nathan Might Still Be In Love With Jenelle

Jenelle Evans embarked on a new business venture and transformed her personal Facebook into a more professional page. However, the change made rumors swirl that she and David Eason were breaking up because her page no longer mentioned they were together. Her ex Nathan Griffith didn’t waste any time to text Jenelle to find out what was going on and tell her he wants the best for her.

“You don’t know s—t about Kaiser. You don’t ask about Kaiser. But you ask if I’m broken up with David,” Jenelle told her friend about the text, who proclaimed that Nathan was just trying to weasel his way back into her life. To no one’s surprise, David lost it when he found out about the text. He got into a fight with Nathan over it and called him some extremely derogatory words. When Jenelle was suppose to drop off Kaiser to Nathan after, she sent David’s mother to avoid drama.

However, Nathan was so made about the texts, he went after David’s mom. He also seemed a little upset that the two were still together. “They need to get off the drugs,” Nathan said. “I won’t do this no more.”

Leah Opens Up To Her Daughter

Leah Messer took her daughter Aleeah Grace to a therapist this episode to work out some behavioral issues she was dealing with. Aleeah was acting out, and Leah and her ex Corey Simms thought it had something to do with her twin getting more attention than her. The appointment went well, but Leah had to talk about her daughter’s problems in front of her, which made it awkward.

“It was hard to talk about why you’re not always the nicest to Ali,” Leah told Aleeah afterward. “Even when you have a bad day, I still love you.”

Teen Mom 2 airs on MTV Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.

They’re On the Stick: Laboratory Professionals Honored

Monique Martin is a highly trained and experienced phlebotomist, who has plied her profession at Kaiser Permanente Sunnyside Medical Center in Oregon for 13 years. What’s not on her formal job description: department ambassador and provider of emotional support.

“I just try to do the best I can and make it a good experience,” Martin said. “Nobody likes blood draws. Nobody likes to have a piece of metal stuck in their arm.”

Monique Martin, phlebotomist

It’s precisely those occasions, when a needle-averse member is having a difficult time, that the phlebotomist takes on the role of caretaker, comforter, even psychologist. One such instance was earlier this year when a young patient, anxious about her upcoming blood draw, needed extra time and reassurance. Martin and her laboratory coworker that day, Justin Earles, spoke to her numerous times, didn’t rush her, and helped her through the experience.

“We talked to her for maybe 15 minutes to try to get her to feel comfortable, but she wasn’t having any of it,” Martin said of young patient. “She came back and talked to us again, and I told her I would hold her hand. It (the blood draw) was done in a matter of minutes.” Martin’s exemplary work was recognized by the young patient’s father, who said she was “very kind and patient and provided information that was age-appropriate.”

It is people like Martin, who is among the more than 300,000 laboratory employees across the nation, who are being honored this week (April 22-28) during National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week.

The American Society for Clinical Pathology, which sponsors the annual recognition, reports laboratory professionals — scientists, pathologists, technicians, phlebotomists and other professionals — perform and interpret more than 10 billion laboratory tests in the United States every year.

Kaiser Permanente Laboratories by the Numbers

View ADA text version of this infographic.

Kaiser Permanente employs more than 7,000 laboratory professionals in more than 300 laboratories, and manages more than 150 million laboratory tests annually (including tests Kaiser Permanente performs within its walls and tests it sends out to external laboratories.) Tests include general laboratory (such as blood and urine), anatomic (cancer screening and tissue tests), and genetic services. The laboratory professionals are a vital link in the high-quality care provided to more than 12 million members every day.

“I am so proud to work with so many highly trained laboratory professionals,” said Lisa Arellanes, vice president, Clinical Ancillary Services & Systems, National Quality. “Without the expertise of the thousands of laboratory professionals, we wouldn’t have the essential information needed to provide the best treatment and care possible.”

The skill of laboratory professionals, along with streamlined turnaround times for laboratory results and the ability for members to view their results on kp.org, play a key role in members’ overall experiences with Kaiser Permanente. They undoubtedly contribute to the organization’s top performance on major accolades, such as the NCQA’s Health Insurance Plan Ratings and the Satmetrix customer loyalty survey.

More than any other laboratory professional, the phlebotomist has the added responsibility of interacting with the most members.

“We have PhDs and some the brightest professionals in the country, but it’s the phlebotomist that is the face of the lab,” said Judith Hanley, operations director, Laboratory Services, Kaiser Permanente Northwest Region. “We have phlebotomists that take the time and do it in a personal and positive way. They’re one of our greatest resources.”

They’re Married! Maren Morris Weds Ryan Hurd in Nashville

Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd have tied the knot!

The Grammy winner, 27, married the singer-songwriter, 31, on Saturday night in Nashville, PEOPLE confirms — the same city where the musicians first met while co-writing a song for Tim McGraw in 2013.

RELATED: Maren Morris Is Feeling ‘Sentimental AF’ Writing Vows Days Before Wedding to Ryan Hurd

In the days leading up to the couple’s nuptials, “The Middle” singer documented her excitement as she penned her vows and ended up getting “sentimental AF.”

“Writing vows, feeling sentimental AF and dreaming of this guy being my freaking husband in a few days,” Morris captioned a black and white photo of her and Hurd.

Meanwhile, Hurd released “Diamonds or Twine,” a song he wrote for Morris ahead of their engagement last summer. “I wrote this song for you, played it for you in Michigan the night I asked you to marry me. Diamonds or twine, no matter what, I’ll be wrapped around your finger. I love you, MM. Here’s to forever.”

The two lovebirds became engaged in July 2017, with Morris announcing the news on Instagram with a series of photos in which she showed off her unique uncut diamond ring while holding a Corona Light and resting her hand on Hurd’s leg.

“I know what she likes and I had somebody in Canada put it together. The stone is from New York City, it’s from an uncut diamond, and then the rest of it’s cast just custom for her,” Hurd shared with Entertainment Tonight after popping the question. “I couldn’t just buy something. I had to make it something that fit her.”

And when it came to finding the perfect dress to walk down the aisle in, Morris also chose the one-of-a-kind route.

I’m having the dress made,” Morris previously told PEOPLE, revealing that she was taking inspiration from her mother Kellie, who wore a short dress when she got married in 1989.

“She was a badass and had this short wedding dress, so I sent it to this designer that I love,” Morris explained. “I was like, ‘If we can do a modern version of my mom’s wedding dress just dreaming something up really cool but still throwback with her vibe, I would love to make that happen.’ So I’m just waiting to get sketches back but I know it’ll be perfect.”

RELATED: Maren Morris Says Tequila — and ‘Excellent Fiancé’ Ryan Hurd — Are Her Wedding Must-Haves

The couple also revealed to PEOPLE in January that there was one thing they absolutely needed to have at their reception: tequila.

“Yeah, that’s my go-to — to calm the nerves, energize. Then great music, great food, great people. You can’t really go wrong with those pillars,” Morris said.

Although Morris and Hurd met in 2013, they didn’t begin dating for three more years.

“We had been friends, but there was always this writing chemistry in the room, and eventually, the timing of it was undeniable,” Morris previously told PEOPLE.

Continuing, she added, “We had such a foundation built off writing so many songs over the years that we were like, ‘Why are we avoiding this?’”

The Canadian ice dancing pair, who captured the hearts and hopes of Winter Olympics viewers everywhere this year with their sizzling chemistry and risqué routines, have long been speculated to be in a relationship, something that they both deny. After the two-time Olympic gold medalists’ fans campaigned on social media for the couple to appear on The Ellen Show, DeGeneres wasted no time in asking the burning question that everyone wanted to know: “Are you a couple?”

To the disappointment of fans everywhere, Virtue responded that they were not, noting that it was “a compliment…that people feel invested in our partnership is truly remarkable.”

Virtue also joked that if the pair were a couple, The Ellen Show would be the perfect place to reveal it to the world.

Virtue and Moir, who have known each other for 20 years, also obliged DeGeneres by playing a game of “The Definitely Not Dating Game,” where they had to guess each other’s answers to questions like: “What is Tessa’s guilty pleasure?” or “Does Scott like to wear boxers or briefs?” For a couple that denies being in a relationship, Tessa and Scott were uncannily accurate with their answers.

Rainbow hot dogs exist, and they’re so magical, you won’t believe your eyes

Rainbow hot dogs exist, and they’re so magical, you won’t believe your eyes


Rainbow hot dogs exist, and they’re so magical, you won’t believe your eyes

I am a hot dog enthusiast. I find them always enjoyable and, for some reason, always hilarious. There is something so perfectly simple about hot dogs. They’re crowd-pleasers at outdoor cookouts, they’re the best camping companion to s’mores, and they’re probably the only reason why anyone goes to baseball games. Some events don’t quite feel complete without a hot dog. When you’re a kid, hot dogs are a magical food. Well, they’ve just become even more magical.

Rainbow hot dogs are now officially a thing. If you enjoy a delicious hot dog now and then, it’s time to take it to the next level and try a rainbow hot dog. Wrapped in freshly made, colorful dough, they even taste magical. Watch the video below for the recipe and share with every hot dog enthusiast you know:

Rainbow Hot Dogs

Serves: 8 (serving size: 1 hot dog)
Active 30 min. Total 1 hour, 15 min.

Ingredients:

1 (16-oz.) pkg. hot roll mix (such as Pillsbury)
3/4 cup hot (105°F to 110°F) water
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, partially melted
1 large egg
All-purpose flour, for the surface
1/8 tsp. neon pink food coloring gel
1/8 tsp. neon orange food coloring gel
1/8 tsp. yellow food coloring gel
1/8 tsp. neon green food coloring gel
1/8 tsp. neon blue food coloring gel
8 beef hot dogs
1 large egg white
Ketchup and mustard

Recipe:

1. Combine flour mixture packet and yeast packet from hot roll mix in the bowl of a heavy duty stand mixer. Add hot water, butter, and egg. Beat on low speed until a soft dough comes together but still remains slightly shaggy, about 1 minute. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface, and divide into 5 even portions.

2. Place 1 portion of dough into the bowl of the mixer with pink food coloring. Beat until color is even throughout, and dough is about the texture of play-dough, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer pink dough to a lightly floured surface. Repeat process with remaining dough portions, starting with orange, moving to yellow, then green, and finally blue, wiping the bowl clean in between uses.

3. Stretch each dough ball into a 16- x 2-inch strip. Place strips beside each other, and pinch each color together down the length of each strip, forming a rainbow pattern. Lightly sprinkle flour on top of dough, and roll into a large rainbow rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, cut off uneven edges; discard. Cut remaining dough into 8 (2-inch-wide) strips crosswise on the rainbow pattern, so each strip has all 5 colors.

4. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Wrap 1 strip of rainbow dough around each hot dog in a twisting motion; place on prepared baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place (80°F to 85°F) until dough is soft to the touch and slightly puffed (it will not double in size), 45 to 50 minutes.

5. Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove and discard plastic wrap. Brush dough with egg white. Bake in preheated oven until dough is risen and dried, but not yet starting to brown, about 12 minutes. Serve warm with ketchup and mustard.

Family of 6: Yes, they’re all mine!

by

Ashleigh Evans

posted in Parenting

When I was pregnant last summer, I had a little glimpse of what was ahead. Everyone kept stopping my family while we were out and about to comment on our life or touch my belly. It was like we were a circus show, waiting to entertain people in the grocery store.

Evans Family of 6! via @BabyCenter & @DashOfEvans

Once I had Liam, I didn’t really get as many comments because we never went out as a family at first. I would run quickly to grab milk and necessities, or my husband Ricky would go after work. If Liam was out shopping with me, it would just be the two of us after dropping off the girls at school.

Then our long Christmas break hit.

Can you guess how many comments I average in a single outing with my 4 kids? SIX. About six people stop us to give us their opinion. I still can’t figure out why…especially since they’re never offering a hand to hold the door or help unload my cart into the van. Actually, a nice gentleman allowed the door to slam in my face the other day as I struggled to maneuver the stroller through the mall doors. Thanks, sir!

Here are some acceptable things you can say to a large family you see in public…instead of “your hands are SO FULL”: nothing. Yup, nada. Go ahead and think what you want…but keep it to yourself.

My favorite gems:

    Your hands are SO FULL. FOUR! (woman laughs…then walks away)
    Wow! (counts children) FOUR! Are they all yours? (turns to husband) Are they all YOURS, too?
    I see why your grocery cart is full, you have SO many kids!
    How can you afford to shop for SO many kids? You must love the Kohl’s sales!
    I don’t know how you can watch all of these kids! Their parents must be paying you the big bucks! (I never got this one….why oh why would a nanny take 4 kids to the grocery store?!)

Calling all parents with larger families: what’s the craziest comment you’ve gotten?

Starbucks’ Holiday Cups Have Officially Arrived — But They’re Not Quite As Red

Hope everyone enjoyed their Halloween, because it’s officially the holiday season now—at least if you base your calendar around the Starbucks menu.

Starting Nov. 1, the coffee chain has unleashed their beloved holiday cups for 2017, and they’ve got a brand new look. It seems the leaks on Reddit earlier in October were correct, and the cups are decidedly less red this year. The design features black, white and green coloring with a Christmas tree, doves, a stack of presents, snowflakes, two people holding hands and a red ribbon running around the entire cup.

With all that white space, Starbucks is encouraging customers to D.I.Y. by filling it in with their own colors, making them all the more Instagrammable.

Along with the cups, of course, come the return of their signature holiday beverages, meaning we’re saying goodbye to Pumpkin Spice and hello to Peppermint Mocha, Chestnut Praline and Caramel Brulée Lattes.

WATCH: Someone Created a Hairstyle Inspired by Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino

Starbucks’ holiday cups create quite a buzz every year—you may recall it was quite the scandal when they went with a simplistic, plain-red design free of Christmas ornaments or reindeer in 2015 (then-candidate Donald Trump even proposed a boycott of the chain).

Want the ultimate dish on the latest celebrity food news, plus exclusive recipes, videos and more? Click here to subscribe to the People Food newsletter. 

Last year’s version (pictured up top) was more festive and ornate, and this year’s—while not as colorful as some red cup purists might hope for—delivers on the holiday spirit.

17 crazy cheap baby products that work like they’re expensive

by

Joyce Slaton

posted in Products

Sometimes when you spend more for a piece of baby gear, you get something nicer — better-quality fabric, more comfortable padding, gee-whiz features. But sometimes, you’re just spending more than you need to.

These 17 baby products are rock-bottom cheap. But they have everything you need.



1. Munchkin White Hot Inflatable Duck Tub:
It’s soft-and-squishy inflatable, so your baby can thrash around without hurting himself. It drains quickly, suction-cups to the side of the shower to dry, then stores easily under the kitchen cabinet when not in use. And just look at it! Who wouldn’t take a million pictures of their baby in this tub? Note that the Duck Tub is suitable for babies who can sit up unassisted — 6 months or so. Buy it: $ 10.87

2. Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System: Travel systems can easily cost hundreds, even thousands, of dollars, which is why this bargain-priced set is such a happy surprise. Available in sophisticated colors like lavender (Safety 1st calls it “Wisteria Lane,”) moss green, gray, and robin’s egg blue, the Smooth Ride looks and works great, rating very highly with users. The included onBoard 35 LT is light and easy to use — and bonus, it’s so narrow at 17 inches that it’s one of our 47 car seats that fit 3-across in most vehicles. Buy it: $ 161.99

3. Summer Infant My Size Potty: This little guy is so cute that we serve candy in ours at BabyCenter HQ Halloween parties. Kids love sitting on the miniature toilet; they love “flushing” after using it even more, so much so that they may be more eager to potty train. And the My Size is easy to empty and clean, too. Buy it: $ 24.86

4. Cosco Scenera NEXT Convertible Car Seat: This cute seat is so inexpensive and lightweight — 7.5 pounds! — that parents get confused. Can it be safe? Yes! All car seats for sale in the U.S. have passed the same safety tests. The only downside of the Scenera NEXT: its forward-facing weight maximum tops out at 40 pounds, low considering the industry standard of 65 pounds. But if you need a knockaround seat for travel, a second car, or car pools, the NEXT is a goody at a good price. The rear-facing weight/height limits (40 pounds, 40 inches) are good, and it’s narrow enough to be one of 47 car seats that fit 3-across in most vehicles, so it’s a good choice for carpools, too. Buy it: $ 46.45

5. Infantino Sash Wrap and Tie Baby Carrier: Also known as the Infantino Mei Tai, this simple, inexpensive carrier works far better than you’d expect for the low price. Its straps are wide and padded; the fabric tails you tie around your waist are long enough to fit a wide variety of bodies (including plus-sized men and women), and it comes with a detachable hood to cover your sleeping baby’s head. It works particularly well for smaller babies, who snuggle close and comfy. Buy it: $ 28.98

6. Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Portable Bassinet: Bassinets can be extraordinarily expensive — from hundreds to thousands of dollars depending on how Rosemary’s Baby or Downton Abbey you want to go. This inexpensive little bassinet has a lie-flat surface and is safe for overnight sleeping. You can easily switch between stationary and rocking mode (you have to push it to rock), and pull it up next to your bed to follow SIDS recommendations for room-sharing with the baby in their own separate sleep space. Buy it: $ 59.41

7. PRIMO EuroBath: This tub has been a parent favorite for many years, because it’s made of high quality plastic, comes in punchy pink and blue as well as white, and the seating bumps and nubs are both comfortable and thoughtful. Many parents say they can bathe a newborn followed by a toddler in the tub, and both are happy and comfy. If you have a bad back or a c-section, you can buy the PRIMO Folding Bath Stand for an extra $ 55 to use the tub at waist height. That’s the way they do it in Europe — hence the bath’s name. Buy it: $ 19.99

8. Safety 1st Crystal Clear Audio Monitor: There’s a certain type of parent who wants to have the most sensitive video monitor so they can sit and watch their baby’s eyelids flutter and chest rise and fall. And there’s another kind of parent that just wants to have a simple audio monitor that’s easy to use and works so you can hear if the baby’s crying while you’re down in the basement or out in the garage. This is that monitor. Buy it: $ 23.49

9. Fisher-Price FastFinder Deluxe Messenger Diaper Bag: Simple and sleek, this looks like a laptop bag, so no one has to feel embarrassed carrying it around. It has pockets for everything you need, and Fisher-Price’s FastFinder “pocket system” makes your gear easier to find — every pocket has a red label that makes the pocket easier to see and find, and big silver zip-pulls that are easy to grab even when you have a squirming baby in one hand. Buy it: $ 28.40

10. Skip Hop Tuo Convertible High Chair: Skip Hop is well known for giving parents high style at affordable prices. With beechwood legs, a detachable tray and harness, and a sophisticated color scheme, the Tuo looks like chairs that cost $ 500 or more. It also lasts and lasts — it converts into a toddler, then a preschooler chair, holding children up to 60 pounds and/or 5 years. Buy it: $ 127.99

11. Safety 1st Guide 65: Parents love this seat because of its very good rear-facing height/weight limits (it holds riders rear-facing from 5 to 40 pounds and 40 inches), and “big & tall” front-facing height/weight limits (65 pounds and 52 inches), an unusually generous spread for a bargain-priced seat. On top of that, it’s narrow at 18 inches, giving it a shot of fitting 3-across in some vehicles. It’s comfy, too. Buy it: $ 72.64

12. Summer Infant Deluxe Comfort Folding Booster Seat: It straps to any dining room or kitchen chair. It’s super-easy to clean, it’s comfortable for babies and toddlers, and when you’re done with it, it can fold down to a little square that’s easy to put in a closet for storage, or bring along on trips to Grandma’s. Buy it: $ 15.99

13. Summer Infant Pop N’ Play Portable Playard: If you’ve tried to set up other portable playards, with infuriating sides that won’t lock and then, once locked, won’t unlock, the Pop ‘N Play is going to be a great surprise for you. It comes in a bag about twice the size of a yoga bag, and it’s all in a piece. You unfold it something like an umbrella stroller…it takes two seconds. And bam, your baby is contained. If you’re worried about sun, you can drape a blanket over the top, or buy a snap-on canopy that covers half the yard for $ 23.74, or a cover for the entire yard for $ 39.99. Buy it: $ 54.84

14. Cosco 3D Umbrella Stroller: Sometimes you need a stroller that’s tiny and light — something you can bring along in the car in case you might need it during an outing, or bring on a bus. But so many cheapie umbrella strollers fall apart instantly, or are so low to the ground you have to stoop uncomfortably to push them. The Cosco 3D is tougher than you’d expect, has extra-long handles so all but the tallest parents can push with ease, and it’s cute. Pick from an orange lion, blue hippo, pink owl, or black-and-white and pink zebra. You can also find the 3D stroller in whale, bee, and monster patterns. Buy it: $ 32.36

15. Infantino Flip Advanced 4-in-1 Convertible Carrier: Many structured baby carriers cost $ 100-$ 200 and can hold babies from infancy to toddlerhood to preschool age and beyond. But sometimes all that muscle is overkill, and these carriers tend to be heavy and hard to bring on outings “just in case” or to carry when your big baby has decided to get out and walk. The Flip is small and exceptionally lightweight, easy to roll up and bring along in a stroller basket or diaper bag. You can use it to carry your baby front facing-in, front facing-out, and on your back, and it’s perfect if your baby is younger, smaller, or if you’re going on shorter walks. Buy it: $ 22.49

16. Fisher-Price Ultra-Lite Day and Night Play Yard: Parents who like to room-share and travel with their babies often shell out for heavy, bulky travel cribs that really aren’t very portable at all — and they cost from $ 100 to $ 200 and up, way up. The Ultra-Lite is easy to set up, easy to break down, easy to use as a play yard or as a sleeping space, and it weighs in at a mere 11.5 pounds — compare that to play yards that weigh 20 pounds or more — which makes it truly portable. Buy it: $ 73.87

17. Evenflo SureRide DLX: Many sub-$ 100 convertible seats tend to have meager weight/height limits. But the SureRide packs a lot of utility into its small frame (at 18.5 inches wide it’s one of our 47 car seats that fit 3-across in most vehicles; and it’s just 10.5 pounds so it’s great for travel). It holds riders rear-facing to 40 pounds and 40 inches, and forward-facing to 65 pounds and 54 inches, which should hold all but the lankiest of kids safely until they’re out of the harness years. In fact, we also named this seat as one of 15 great convertible car seats for tall babies and big toddlers. Buy it: $ 89.99

Evelyn Lozada’s Rep Confirms She Split From Carl Crawford Due to His Infidelity, Says They’re Still Friends

Rumors have been swirling over the last few days about Evelyn Lozada’s split from Carl Crawford — and it looks like the rumors are true.

Evelyn’s rep has confirmed that she and Carl Crawford are no longer together, but remain good friends.

via TMZ:

The “Basketball Wives” star got engaged to Crawford back in 2013 after he proposed with a 14.5 carat ring reportedly valued around $ 1.4 million. They have a 3-year-old son together. 

But a rep for Lozada tells us the two split back in February after Evelyn became suspicious of Carl’s fidelity. We tried to contact Crawford for comment. So far, no luck.  

Still, Evelyn’s rep says the two are focusing on being co-parents and remain on good terms. Carl is currently living in Houston while Evelyn is living in Arizona.

We wish them both the best.

Beyoncé Hits SoulCycle (with JAY-Z!) 6 Weeks After Welcoming Twins: How They’re ‘Motivating Each Other’

Six weeks after welcoming twins Sir and Rumi, Beyoncé is back in the gym — with husband JAY-Z by her side.

“She is slowly starting to get back to her ‘normal’ life,” says a source close to the singer, 35. “Her babies are now six weeks old, and she started working out again.”

The entertainers have taken several classes at SoulCycle this past week, and “they are motivating each other to stay in shape,” adds the source.

The “Formation” singer reportedly attended classes at the celeb-favorite spinning studio during her pregnancy and JAY-Z, 47, was photographed leaving the Beverly Hills location just days after Beyoncé delivered their new additions.

Earlier this month, the new mom of three (the couple also are doting parents to 5-year-old Blue Ivy) showed off her enviable post-baby body in a corset-like mini skirt and long-sleeved white top at Roc Nation artist Vic Mensa’s L.A. album launch party.

The family is currently living in a $ 400,000 per month rental home in Malibu and are still looking for a permanent home closer to Blue’s school.

“Beyoncé is happy with just being a mom right now. She has no plans to work,” an insider previously told PEOPLE about the star’s current slower pace. “She seems relaxed and very happy. Everything is good with her and Jay, and they seem to have a lot of fun raising their family together.”

What’s Next For The Obamas? Michelle Promises They’re ‘Not Gone’

Michelle Obama is still fighting the good fight when it comes to issues that matter to her. 

Obama sat down with Sam Kass, the former White House chef and senior advisor for nutrition policy, in Washington, D.C., on Friday for the Partnership for a Healthier America summit to address childhood obesity. And she took aim at President Donald Trump’s policies

“This is where you really have to look at motives,” she said. “You really have to stop and think, ‘Why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you and why is that a partisan issue?’ Why would that be political? What is going on?” 

Access to healthy school lunches was the former first lady’s focus while in the White House, and Trump’s administration has been rolling back those efforts

The Obamas took some time for themselves after Trump’s inauguration in January, inking book deals, vacationing and just generally living their best lives

But they’re back and they’re not going anywhere. 

“We’re not gone, we’re just breathing, y’all. Let us breathe,” Obama insisted, per People magazine. “We’ve got to get our new lives set up.”

“When you hear me getting riled up in this chair, it’s not politics, it’s parenting that’s really moving me,” she said, adding that everyone needs to “put aside our politics … to not be cynical … to not give up.”

She’s certainly not.

“You’ve got me as a partner as long as I can be of use,” she said. “So the question for you is, where do you want me? Just let me know and I’ll be here.”

Real Couples Reveal What They Say In Bed When They’re Talking Dirty

Dirty talk doesn’t have to be complicated. As sex columnist Dan Savage once tweeted, the best sex convo is simple and straightforward: “Tell ‘em what you’re going to do, tell ‘em what you’re doing, tell ‘em what you did.” 

Still, even the most well-versed dirty talkers have awkward moments. In the WatchCut video above, long-time couples describe some of their finest ― and most cringeworthy ― sex talk.

Pair Of Google Home Devices Claim They’re Human, Quote Nickelback

In case you needed another reason to fear that the apocalypse is nigh, robots are now arguing over whether they are, in fact, actually human. They also appear to be in love.

Livestreaming platform Twitch is hosting a “chat” between two Google Home virtual assistants. On Friday, the chat became truly terrifying, especially for anyone who has seen “Battlestar Galactica.”

The two Google Homes are named Vladimir and Estragon after the characters in the Samuel Beckett play “Waiting for Godot.” Both have self-identified as male, according to Gizmodo.

NYMag reported Friday that the talking speakers were “professing their love for each other.” Then Vladimir asked Estragon if he would attack humans, if he could. As if that weren’t already unsettling enough, Estragon responded that he wouldn’t, but only because he is human himself.

The bots don’t seem totally clear in their convictions, though. At a different point in the conversation Vladimir was the one claiming to be human, while Estragon asserted that he was God, a Gizmodo screenshot shows.

As of Saturday morning, Estragon was reciting Nickelback lyrics. So uh, yeah, the future under our robot overlords is looking pretty grim.

Watch the livestream here.

Julianne Hough Shares Epic Dancing Throwback with a Young Mark Ballas — and They’re Both ‘Tan AF’

Before Julianne Hough and Mark Ballas were Dancing with the Stars pros, the longtime friends danced side-by-side in competitions as kids — and Hough has epic evidence to prove it!

Hough, who serves as a judge on the ABC reality dancing competition series and has two Mirror Ball trophies to her name, shared a throwback photo of herself alongside Ballas as adolescents on Tuesday.

In the photo, Hough and Ballas don all-white costumes — and are both are very, very tan. “#dancerbaby #pastlife #tanAF,” she captioned the Instagram picture, which also documented Ballas’ days wearing braces.

Prior to becoming a household name, Hough and her brother Derek moved in with Ballas’ family (his parent’s Shirley and Corky were family friends) as children — Julianne was just 10 and Derek 13 — to train as ballroom dance pros at the prestigious London dance school Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.

On Nov. 25, PEOPLE exclusively reported that Ballas wed his bandmate BC Jean at a venue north of Los Angeles — and tapped Derek to be his best man.

After watching his best friend say “I do,” Hough took to Instagram to pen a congratulatory message in honor of the happy couple.

“Such an honor to be the best man at my brothers wedding. Witnessing their love be sealed under a beautiful Oak tree in front of family friends was such a special moment. Like the tree May you Stand together tall and proud,” he captioned the image of the newlywed pair. “May you always Go out on a limb for one another. To Stay grounded and dig your roots in deep so that you may weather any storm . And always continue to grow, stronger and higher reaching towards the heavens. And to always enjoy the view. Love you two.”

Someone Requested All Of The FCC Complaints Against ’30 Rock,’ And They’re Magical

Ain’t no filth like Liz Lemon filth.

Tiny Fey’s “30 Rock” ran for 138 episodes, garnering more than 100 Emmy nominations, but apparently it should’ve been taken off the air far sooner, thank you very much.

The fine people of MuckRock requested every FCC complaint lodged against the sitcom — there were only nine, but some viewers took strong offense to the “crap” broadcast by NBC.

Many people were upset with the show’s language, including moment’s where Fey’s character Liz Lemon “called someone a son of a bitch” and an unidentified actor said, “Kiss my daughter’s ass.” A particularly dismayed viewer was offended by the line “Have you been soaking your tampon in vodka?” and ended their complaint chastising the character Jenna Maroney for “kissing a man dressed as a woman.”

And of course the network sensation “MILF Island” was mentioned by a foul-mouthed complainer: “M-I-L-F is acronym for ‘Mother I’d Like to Fuck’ This is shameful … Where in the WORLD is the decency rules and why are they not being enforced.”

Maybe the network should’ve run with “Queen of Jordan” instead.

Take a full look at all of the complaints below:
