These Swimsuit Trends Are About To Take Over Instagram

Here comes the sun (kind of), and with it our favorite clothing season: swim season. Though we're planning on spending as much of May through September (plus long weekend getaways from March to April) relaxin' and maxin' by the pool, we're first taking a careful look at our current bathing suit inventory. If you're wearing the same black one-piece you've had since that family beach trip 10 years ago, you might want to consider an upgrade. And whether there's an upcoming vacay on your calendar o...

Are You Overconditioning Your Hair? Turns Out, You Might Be

For as long as I can remember, I've been told that the key to maintaining healthy hair is moisture. Conditioning after washing has always been a must; I make sure to take time to regularly deep condition once a week and use protein treatments as well. But with all of these moisturizing tips in mind, I sometimes can't help but ask myself if it'd ever be possible for me to somehow overcondition my hair. Of course, I brought this question to a hair pro, who told me the answer to that is . . . kind...

The Abiding Value of Pastoral Friends

In my first church, a deacon began a meeting by yelling at me. He stood inches from my face before storming out. Nobody in the meeting knew what to do. I called a friend of mine — a pastor — for lunch the next day. He cleared his schedule and took me to a nice lunch. He was older than me, and he’d been there. He offered me little advice but lots of understanding, and I remember that lunch to this day. That’s the last time I had a deacon yell at me. But I’ve experienced all kinds of pastora...

5 Reasons Why You Should Join A Modeling Agency

Are you looking forward to becoming the next cover page model on the Forbes lifestyle magazine? Well, you must know that reputable global clients will only outsource models via an agency. We are growing into an era of digitization, and therefore no one will attend every modeling show to pick up the right model for their upcoming events.

3 Editors Tried the "Clean Color" Pastel Makeup Trend, and We're Never Going Back to Basics

Somewhere across the hallway, behind closed doors at Runway magazine, Miranda Priestly would be saying: "Pastels for Spring? Groundbreaking." But save the pursing of your lip, would you, because this season's biggest makeup trend isn't at all like the others you've seen before. It's pastel - with a "clean color" twist. What does that mean, exactly? Well, instead of going full throttle with an Easter egg hue on your eyelids, you pair simple or neutral-looking skin and lips with strategically plac...

Welcome To My Mid-Life Style Crisis

The other day, I opened my closet and all my clothes started shouting “WHO EVEN ARE YOU?”. Not in a cool and mysterious “who is she?” way. More in a “How did you get into my house and why are you wearing my skin as a suit?” Way. That as disturbing as you can imagine. Firstly because I spent 41 years on this earth not knowing clothes can talk (and throw shade) and secondly because well… I can’t really face the world in my birthday suit.  So I did what anyone would do, I reached for a pair of j...

Gay man fed up because all the guys he meets are total “garbage”

An Atlanta man says all the guys he dates are “garbage” and he hates them, so he’s seeking advice from Mike Fleming at Project Q. “I am a gay man, but I hate men,” the letter begins. “The only thing they end up being good for is sex, yet I still want just one to buck the stereotype and change my life.” The man goes on to say he has a great network of female friends who he gets along with splendidly.

This Rub-Off Charcoal Mask Gave Me Glowing Skin After Just One Use - See My Receipts

There's just something undeniably fancy about slathering creamy goop on your face, letting the ingredients do their thing, and reaping the benefits. I make sure to mask at least twice a week, and there's usually a method to the formula I choose. C...

A Tennessee Man Died In Jail Because He Couldn’t Afford His $100 Bond

On February 22, staff at a jail in Tennessee found 32-year-old Tommy Young unresponsive in his cell. He’d been held in the facility on assault charges since January, unable to pay his $100 bail. The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office told a local Fox affiliate that the preliminary information indicated he died by suicide, but Young’s family is skeptical. “Would he have committed suicide then, when he’s only got 3 weeks until he comes home,” said Angela Stokes, Young’s mother.

TikTok’s New Beauty Challenge Has People Celebrating the Facial Features They’re Most Insecure About

Beauty trends and challenges come and go quicker than product launches (which is saying something), and typically they're pretty, well, bizarre.
