— Conor McGregor
These James Bond-approved wardrobe essentials are the first step in cultivating the mindset of a highly successful member of the superclass:
Worn by Roger Moore in Live and Let Die, this dandy suit is a classic piece with six buttons in a keystone formation for an eye-catching accent. Even for 1973, this suit was considered old-fashioned but perfect for making a major fashion…

Whatever style and silhouette you choose, use this guide like your own personal stylist to help you find the perfect accessories that accentuate your evening wardrobe.
When it comes to accessorizing, keep your look balanced by looking for accents instead of matching colors. For example, if your dress is royal blue with crystal embellishments, a silver bag and shoes would perfectly compliment the look.
All I wanted was a shiny new bike, the award for winning first place in an essay contest at my elementary school.
My family was poor, so I never got a new bike for Christmas or birthdays. And by poor I mean running out of food and Dollar Store back-to-school outfits for the entire school year. It wasn’t India-level poverty with a family of 14 living on piles of garbage in the slums of Mumbai.
In my household it was more like Little House on the Prairie in the 1880s but with atheism and electricity. I always had a hand-me-down…
At first glance, SpongeBob SquarePants looks like a kid’s show. But au contraire! There are many hidden nuggets of wisdom meant for adults. Here are some surprising life lessons I learned from the iconic series:
When Gary brings home a stray snail, Spongebob thinks they’re just playing but Patrick isn’t so sure. The next day, it looks like they were more than just ‘friends’ because SpongeBob and the cute little snail turned into 30 babies overnight.
Now SpongeBob’s pineapple house is overrun with total chaos and mayhem. …
If you have debilitating chronic pain and don’t want to suffer the common side effects of pain pills, including constipation, mood swings, addiction, and nausea, I hear you.
My personal journey with chronic pain
Due to several chronic conditions, I’ve had to deal with nearly 20 years of severe neuropathic pain in my hip, lower back, and on bad flare-up days, all over my whole body.
Opiates aren’t a long-term solution
I’ve also been-there-done-that when it comes to the long list of typical pain medications prescribed by doctors — from opiates and anti-anxiety meds to antidepressants.
Some of these drugs…
Whether it’s witnessed by the world or on a small personal scale, breakups and hookups are all the same. And it’s no different with celebrities.
Of course, this is just speculation, but here’s my theory on how the unlikely and random — maybe not so random — romance between Pete Davidson and Phoebe Dynevor got started:

When your heart is broken into a million pieces, sometimes the only thing that helps is a good cry, a screaming session, or dancing in your living room while listening to a thoughtfully curated playlist.
Or maybe you just want to Rain Man that one song over and over again while you cry yourself to sleep.

Leaf blowers of every creed in color — both documented and undocumented — I feel your pain. Any time of year can be especially difficult, with thousands upon thousands of leaves fluttering in the breeze and scattering incessantly all over streets, lawns, and sidewalks across America.
Even when it’s not autumn, a windy day is like a bad case of tree dandruff, and the leaves just won’t stop. All that fascist foliage is probably right back in the pile of dirt you so thoroughly blasted away outside people’s bedroom windows at 7:00 am.
Listen up Leaf blowers. You have a…
Considering the surprising history of women’s sexuality throughout ancient and modern civilization, you’ll find a compendium of interesting discoveries and misconceptions about the female orgasm.
Based on the 1938 Gothic novel by English author Dame Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca, available on Netflix and directed by Ben Wheatley, gets off to a strong start: the gorgeous backdrop of 1930s Monaco, the period costumes, A-list actors like Academy Award-nominated Kristen Scott Thomas, and the charismatic Lily James from Cinderella.
