However, Cinco de Mayo does not have to be a bloat causing, fattening food …

Friday Favorite: THE BEST Women’s Surf Movie

Leave a Message encompasses my whole female surfing vibe. These athletes rip while maintaining their personal identities and styles. The video profiles each surfer before showing them carve out. They’re styles are super diverse. I personally love Laura Enever’s sequence. She fits in fashion to her surfing somehow. The soundtrack is a total upper. Leave …

24 Costume Ideas for Creative Couples

24 Couples Costume Ideas: Couples costumes are twice the fun. However, there are not as many obvious options for paired costumes.

So, in the interest of all couples seeking this kind of inspiration, here's a collage of creative couples costumes.

It was 1991, or ’92. I was maybe six or seven years old. My ballet backpack rested next to me. Every so often I caught a whiff of sweaty hairspray coming from the slick perfect bun seemingly glued to my head. My ballet class was over, but Mom’s Jazzercise had just begun. After a few …
