Why I Miss the Sleepless Nights

ShareTweetPin Every once in a great while I still hear that cry in the night and make my way down the hall to sooth a sweet baby. (FYI… I will call them babies as long as I want, it doesn’t matter that they are 4 and nearly 3, they are my babies and always will be. So there.) However, it is a rarity these days to be woken and needed, but when this happened last week I realized something so precious about this time with my little ones. It is a sacred time I get to spend with my babes. When I was in the throws of it and literally bouncing back and forth, like a ping pong ball, between …

If Youre Sending Kids Back to School, Watch This Michael Bubl Video at Your Own RiskALL. The. Tears.

ShareTweetPin It’s that time of year again, mamas. Backpacks are stuffed with new school supplies, lunches are packed, and that big yellow bus again makes its debut on our curbside. As we wave a teary-eyed goodbye in the driveway, it hits us that our babies are yet another year older, and slowly slipping from childhood into adulthood—even if it is only the fourth grade we’re talking about. “Don’t blink” has become the choice phrase for encapsulating the mysterious way in which our tiny humans seemingly go from crib-bound to college-bound in a few short moments. And perhaps nothing can capture that feeling quite like Michael Bublé‘s music video for his new song “Forever Now.” The sappy-song extraordinaire has done it …

A Trainer’s Honest Review Of Khlo K’s Go-To Butt Sculpting Machine Betches

Khloé Kardashian’s body transformation has been astonishing regardless of all the surgeries, and I respect how hard the girl grinds in the gym when she’s not in post-op. She’s been the most publicly open about her fitness journey of all her sisters, she came out with a Good American fitness wear line, and she has her own fitness-centered transformation show, Revenge Body. So when I was given the opportunity to try out a piece of at-home workout equipment that Khloé’s featured on her app as a “must-have,” I had to say yes. The machine is from the DB Method. It’s a foldable contraption that looks like half of a see-saw that works your butt. Honestly, that’s kind of what you’re doing on …

Dear Influencers: It’s Not The Algorithm, It’s You Betches

By now we’ve probably all witnessed the infamous influencer mating cry to their followers at least once: Turn on notifications! The algorithm is hiding my posts and depriving all of you, my amazing Insta fam, of my latest collagen lube ad. Hit those three dots in the top right corner ladies!! Here’s the thing: maybe it’s not the algorithm, maybe it’s you. Ever since Instagram stopped showing posts chronologically, which was a long f*cking time ago, it’s clear that not all of your followers see all your posts, and that the posts we see most frequently are from people we follow more closely and whose content we like. It also shows us the “better” posts of people we follow more casually. For …

Did This Influencer Fake A Crash For Instagram Likes? | Betches

When it comes to getting Instagram likes, you have to constantly up the ante, influencers especially. Whereas once influencers invented and perfected the art of posing in front of a brightly colored wall with one leg bent, foot planted against the wall, that’s not enough. Just like Oscar de la Renta’s cerulean blue, Instagram poses have trickled down from the elite (celebrities and mega-influencers) to the plebeians (everybody else with a smart phone and an Instagram account). It’s not enough to just post a pretty, bright photo of a pretty white girl in front of an aesthetically pleasing backdrop anymore. You have to get creative, which influencers have been doing in perplexing and dangerous ways, from posing at toxic lakes …

Katie Holmes And Jamie Foxx Have Broken Up Betches

And the hits just keep on coming. We’ve seen a lot of surprising celebrity breakups this year, like Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse (maybe? probably?) and Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk, and now, another seemingly strong couple has bitten the dust. PEOPLE confirmed that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have reportedly split after six years together, and damn, I didn’t think I cared about them that much as a couple but I am pretty saddened by this news. Me, after yet another celebrity couple I was barely following calls it quits:

3 Words That Will Change Your Marriage

ShareTweetPin You may be thinking there’s no way so few words can even touch on such a huge topic. My husband disagrees. When I texted him for his three words, he replied he only needed two: Yes, Dear. Maybe it’s not the amount of words you’re worried about. Maybe you’re wondering if words alone can really change anything. Think about your relationships with your parents, children, spouse, or friends. The people you’re close to often, with what they say, carry the power to hurt or heal. To make you hate them or love them. To make you feel good or bad about where you stand in their lives. What wife wouldn’t want to soak in these words? “You have captivated …

12-Yr-Old Promises to Save Sex for Her HusbandOn Her Wedding Day, He Reads This Letter

ShareTweetPin By Jordan Lee We kissed on the couch while watching a movie in his parents’ basement. He asked if I wanted to go further and I froze at the question. How much further? Should I be cool and roll with it? Should I say no? Questions raced through my mind, and in a panic, I excused myself to the bathroom before I could answer. After an awkward conversation, I drove home feeling like a super uncool loser who just lost the cool guy’s interest. I felt like the only girl in high school who couldn’t keep a guy’s interest long. I encountered a similar situation early on in college. With slumped shoulders, I shuffled back to my dorm room …

This Aquarium Picks The Naughtiest Penguin Of The Month, And The Crimes Are Too Funny (New Images)

Those naughty penguins are at it again! Last year, we introduced you to a group of penguins from the National Aquarium of New Zealand. As you probably already know, they are out of control.
