Fuck The FireworksWhen Something Is Really Right For You It Makes You Feel Completely At Ease

Brianna Wiest Updated May 16, 2019 By Vlad Bagacian Everyone tells you to build your life on passion. To choose the things that leave you breathless, weak-kneed, glimmer-eyed and inspired. What they do not tell you is that those are also often the things that are unrealistic, inflated, short-lived and unhealthy. It’s hard to accept that our feelings could fail us like this, especially when they are so compelling. There is nothing most of us want than something in our lives that sweeps us out of complacency and into an entirely new existence. That is a fairytale that does not end happily ever after. The truth is that when something is really right for you, it makes you feel completely …

James Charles’ Merch Line Appears To Be DUNZO – Is Jeffree Star To Blame?? – Perez Hilton

Did Jeffree Star say, “Bye sister,” to James Charles‘ merch line?? As The brand’s website not only appears to be taken down, but the URL redirects to James’ YouTube channel. Sisters Apparel’s distributor is Killer Merch, which just so happens to be the company of Star, who publicly sided with Tati after her takedown video went viral. As of this writing, Sisters Apparel is no longer listed as a “partner” on Killer Merch’s website. In her 43-minute video, Westbrook cut ties with Charles after he shared an endorsement at Coachella for Sleep Vitamins by SugarBearHair, a direct competitor of her vitamin brand, Halo Beauty. Though Charles later apologized to her on Instagram Story, Westbrook claimed the teen did not personally reach out to her “face-to-face” rather …

Why I (Still) Love Tech: In Defense of a Difficult Industry

Stefan Dinse/EyeEm/Getty Images (clouds) And yet I still love the big T, by which I mean either “technology” or “trillions of dollars.” Why wouldn’t I? I came to New York City at the age of 21, in the era of Java programming, when Yahoo! still deserved its exclamation point. I’d spent my childhood expecting nuclear holocaust and suddenly came out of college with a knowledge of HTML and deep beliefs about hypertext, copies of WIRED (hello) and Ray Gun bought at the near-campus Uni-Mart. The 1996 theme at Davos was “Sustaining Globalization”; the 1997 theme was “Building the Network Society.” One just naturally follows the other. I surfed the most violent tsunami of capital growth in the history of humankind. …

50 Boys On The Dumbest Thing Theyve Ever Done For A Pretty Girl

By Cristina Gottardi These boys on Ask Reddit are either hopeless romantics or fools in love. By Cristina Gottardi 1. First girl I asked out I left a chalk outline of a body on her driveway, along with a (clearly fake) police report indicating I was dying to go out with her. Yeah. I still cringe at the memory. 2. Enrolled in the same Uni, she stopped talking to me 2 weeks later. 3. In high school this girl who I was close friends with (but also had a not so secret crush on) told me once how she really loved those HUGE 7 foot tall teddy bears, so I told her one day I’d buy her one and she …

7 Myths About Sleeping With Your Forever Person

By God & Man By God & Man 1. The first time is going to be magical. When you sleep with someone for the first time, there are going to be awkward moments. You do’t know each other’s bodies yet. You don’t know what turns them on and what turns them off. Sex is a learning experience. It’s going to take some time to get to know where they want to be kissed and what their different moans mean. That’s why you shouldn’t freak out if your first time with someone is less exciting than expected, because it’s only going to get better the next time. 2. You’re always going to be in the mood. Even when you’re dating someone …

Some of the performance was his own creation and some hed brought in from the archives of a blog about the album.

A Thank You To Broad City For Getting Me Through My Twenties

Rebecca Whitaker Updated April 19, 2019 By Broad City People always say “enjoy your twenties!” but no one ever talks about how terrible they can be. My twenties felt like being in a boat without a paddle — in the middle of the ocean, in a storm. Sure, it was exciting! But it was also terrifying. I was constantly reeling; trying to be an adult, working my ass off at underpaid jobs, going on horrible dates, all the while partying way too much. Whenever I felt I had finally achieved some balance or direction, I was swept up or tipped over again and again. The only thing that kept it all together was my amazing group of friends. After graduating with a …

Wish you werent here? How to survive your first holiday as a couple

A first break can put a new romance under strain, or worse. To improve the chances of returning with the relationship intact, try following these ground rules I have lost luggage, I have slept on airport floors and in budget backpacker hostels, I have weathered flight cancellations, food poisoning and days of unbroken rain. Yet my worst-ever holiday, a weekend away with my boyfriend, went entirely to plan. We had been seeing each other for a few months, and this was our first trip together. But removed from our usual contexts (in bed, or watching TV, or watching TV in bed), we realised too late that we had nothing to say to each other. At one point we parked our …

God, I Will Fall In Love In Your Perfect Timing

Dakota Geduld Updated May 11, 2019 By Danielle Drislane For so long, all I wanted was to belong to someone. I wanted it so badly that I was willing to settle for lovers who treated me like I was nothing. I got so lost in the appeal of romantic comedies that I forgot my endless value — the value that my Father gave to me. Despite turning my back countless times along the way, my Father has never left my side. And my worth is found in Him, not someone else. I forgot this on my mission to find my missing half. But another thing I forgot was that I am complete. Christ has made me whole, and I am …

Beyond fabulous: how camp created the Met Gala’s craziest red carpet ever

From Cardi Bs fabulous feathers to Katy Perrys light-up chandelier, the Met Gala more than lived up to this years camp theme. But, for all the silliness, it had a serious point to make Heads up: Jared Leto. Photograph: Raymond Hall/GC Images The bar for party dressing this summer just got pretty high. Billy Porter arrived at the Met Gala in a catsuit with gold wings, reclining on a chaise longue carried by six shirtless men part Icarus, part Cher-by-Bob-Mackie, part Liz Taylor in Cleopatra. Lady Gaga made not one entrance, but four, dressed like a Russian doll in three ballgowns on top of each other for a red-carpet striptease of fuschia and black taffeta. Jared Leto accessorised his look …

Carly Rae Jepsen: Im more confident in my weirdness now

The Canadian popstar on true love, bad outfits and her new album, Dedicated When greatest chorus of the 21st century, she was aiming for a sense of childish excitement. Its how she writes much of her pop as she puts it today, I want to feel Im on the top of a mountain with Beyonc-wind in my hair and I can fly for a second. Jepsen is one of pops more intriguing characters. When Call Me Maybe entered the Hot 100 in her home country, Canada, seven years ago she thought shed made it. Then Justin Bieber heard the impossibly catchy track, creaky version on live TV. In the video for Jepsens follow-up hit, I Really Like You, Famous Blue …

9 Lessons I Learned This Year That Made Me Feel Better About Life

Abby Kloppenburg Updated May 7, 2019 Inna Lesyk Abby Kloppenburg Updated May 7, 2019 Inna Lesyk 1. Life is just a series of the same experiences over and over. When I first moved to DC after college, I was always jealous of the people who seemed so comfortable there, like they knew where they fit into the fabric of the city. Five years later, I was one of them — and then I moved to LA and started all over. I quickly realized I would always be the new one, the outcast or the lost soul one more time. I would always be asking the same questions, reasoning my way into answers and reconsidering a few weeks later. Each time, though, I …
