I don't like feelings. Honestly, if I had a choice, I probably would like to ignore the fact that they exist altogether. Expressing my feelings makes me feel vulnerable, and I worry that telling the people in my life how I feel could drive them…

If you weren't one of the "cool kids" in school, you probably remember what it felt like to be bullied. It was a painful process, and it makes you doubt yourself and your abilities. You often felt like you weren't good enough, and it made you shy…

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are getting SERIOUS, you guys. They've been spotted kissing in pretty much every country in the world. They've been on each other's Instagram and Snapchat stories, and they're pretty much the CUTEST couple ever. I mean,…

I'm gonna be real with you: I never understood the concept of prom proposals... or "promposals," I guess they're called. Like, why are you going all out to invite someone TO PROM? I'm pretty sure there have been marriage proposals less…

I'm low-key OBSESSED with Rachel Lindsay. She's smart, pretty, funny and ambitious, and like I've said before, Nick Viall was a complete IDIOT for sending her home on "The Bachelor." Now, the guy just looks miserable, and TBH, it's pretty clear he…

Tuesday, April 4 is Equal Pay Day. This date symbolizes how far into the year a woman must work in order to earn the same amount of money a man in the same position would have earned the year before. Essentially, this day was created to give…

Social media queen and "Modern Family" star Ariel Winter has a GREAT body, and she's never been shy about showing it off. It doesn't matter whether she's in a thigh-high dress on the red carpet or posting casual bikini pics on Instagram; she knows…

If I didn't know any better, I would NOT believe Kate Hudson is 37 years old. The stunning actress constantly slays, no matter whether she's on the red carpet or just hanging out in sweats. But of course, looking this good never comes easy. Kate's…

IT'S OFFICIALLY SPRING, aka the perfect time for new beginnings and fresh styles. And it seems Gigi Hadid's been inspired, too. The gorgeous supermodel is no stranger to changing up her look. Do you remember her brunette transformation? Or how…

Nick Viall's choices in women just totally confuse me. First, he sent THE PERFECT WOMAN – Rachel Lindsay – home on this season of "The Bachelor." THEN, he picked the woman he fights with the MOST as his future bride, all while leaving poor Raven…

Summer seriously can't come fast enough. If you're like me and absolutely hate the cold, you're already dreaming of days by the pool or beach, reclining somewhere warm... with a glass of rosé in hand, of course. Rosé is the PERFECT summer drink, and…

As you grow older, you may realize you've lost a lot of the friends you used to have when you were younger. Even though this is a seemingly natural progression, and is based on the major life changes you go through in your 20s – like moving away or…

Seriously, guys: This whole Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna relationship – IS IT EVEN A RELATIONSHIP? – is making my head hurt. As you know, it was Rob Kardashian's 30th birthday yesterday, and the entire family posted on Instagram to celebrate. Kris…

So guys, I saw "Beauty And The Beast" last night, and all I have to say is this: GET YOUR ASS TO A THEATER IMMEDIATELY. It was SO great. The visuals were amazing, the beast was BAE and Emma Watson was literal PERFECTION as Belle. I couldn't stop…

Damn. I wouldn't want to piss off Khloé Kardashian. For her brother Rob's 30th birthday yesterday, the reality star posted an adorable little montage of pictures and videos on Instagram that shows just how strong their relationship really is. It…

For the longest time, I was a TOTAL carnivore. I couldn't imagine a meal without meat, and it was hard for me to make any meatless recipes at all. But then, I got sick, and it was recommended I start eating more plant-based foods. I started eating…

OK, you guys... I'm no expert here, but I'm pretty sure if I went on a date with my main girl's ex-boyfriend, she'd be PISSED AF. And she would have every right to be. It's just girl code: Ex-boyfriends are off limits to friends, as "Mean Girls" so…

It's tough being a supermodel. I mean, can you imagine the fabulous after-parties, the exotic destinations and the insane outfits? SO MUCH WORK. But seriously, I can only imagine it might be pretty difficult to get some decent shut-eye if you're…

It's clear JLo has discovered the fountain of youth. Did you SEE her at the Grammys last month? If I look that good at 47, I will be SO thrilled. Sadly, I don't even think I looked that good at 27. I don't blame JLo for workin' it every chance she…

If someone forced you into getting married to someone you'd only met once, you'd probably consider that a form of oppression... right? Well, if you grew up in India like I did, you might think otherwise. As a developing country, India is still miles…
