Huffington Post - about 1 month
It seems like all rules about touching a stranger’s stomach go out the door when pregnancy is involved. But Lauren Conrad won’t stand for that. The TV personality, designer and mom-to-be wrote a blog post titled, “Ladylike Laws: 4 Things to Never Say to a Pregnant Woman.” In the piece, Conrad shares some etiquette ground rules. The last two rules are “Refrain from commenting on the size of someone’s bump” and “Don’t touch the belly without asking!”  Regarding the former, Conrad notes that she herself has been guilty of making comments about a woman’s belly size. “Women carry their pregnancy in all different ways, and can be self-conscious about it,” she wrote. “Whether a woman is bigger than average or she’s not showing as much as she thought she would be, keep in mind that it can be a very sensitive subject.” As for the latter, she wrote, “This one might seem like a no-brainer, but every mama I know has some story about a stranger touching her pregnant belly.” Conrad said ...

The Holidays Are The Perfect Time To Take Some Style Risks
Huffington Post - 3 months
If I had a dollar for every time a friend uttered the words “I can’t pull that off,” I’d be jet-setting around the world in a private jet instead of sitting here writing this story. OK, not quite, but the debilitating mindset that stops us from reaching our true sartorial potential is rampant, especially when the holidays come around. I get it, there’s nothing quite as intimidating as a sequined blazer, but when it comes to wearing something out of your comfort zone, the secret to achieving greatness is basically ... putting said thing on.    Still not totally convinced? I thought you might say that. That’s why I’ve gone ahead and done your holiday party homework for you. From just the tiniest touch of sparkle to full-on party pants, here are some fool-proof, totally wearable options for any of your seasonal commitments this month.  1.

How Lonelygirl15 taught us to doubt everything on the internet
Yahoo News - 8 months
In the summer of 2006, YouTube was only a year old, and people were very concerned for the safety of its breakout star. Only they didn't actually know who or where she was — or whether she was even real. Bree, the unassuming 16-year-old vlogger best known by her username, Lonelygirl15, was possibly a victim and possibly a hoax, but it didn't matter either way to the thousands of fans who anxiously waited for her updates.  Not knowing was the real thrill. And 10 years later, Lonelygirl15's legacy is the currency of uncertainty. SEE ALSO: 'Bachelorette' villain Chad may be squatting on domains for porn Bree's first vlog appeared on the site on June 16, 2006 and was titled "First Blog/Dorkiness Prevails."

Lauren Conrad's Dramatic Style Evolution Over The Years
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Lauren Conrad is one of our favorite fashionistas to come out of MTV's popular franchise "Laguna Beach." We can always look to the blonde beauty for inspiration on what to wear. But even Conrad had a few style misses before blossoming into the budding designer that she is today.  Like most Cali high schoolers, Conrad's "going out" attire consisted mostly of provocative blouses and baggy flare leg jeans. She eventually gravitated toward babydoll dresses that showed off her bronze glow. Now, the young mogul can be spotted on the red carpet sporting modest sheath dresses and pumps.  As Conrad turns 30 (wow, time flies!) on Feb. 1, we take a scroll down memory lane with her dramatic style evolution.

Not Mad About "The Boy" But Pleasantly Surprised
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Movie Review - Jackie K Cooper "The Boy" (STX Entertainment) Watching the trailer for the new horror film "The Boy" I was not impressed. It seemed so dumb to have a woman travel to England to babysit a young child, and then discover he/it was a doll. Hadn't we seen all of this demon doll stuff before when the "Chucky" movies were all the rage! So why was Hollywood beating this dead horse one more time. Well that will teach me to pre-judge anything out of Hollywood. It seems "The Boy" has a lot more going for it than first appears. It has a group of good, if not great, actors; an interesting, if not totally logical, script; and enough twists and turns to keep audiences entertained for the most part. The story concerns a young American woman named Greta (Lauren Cohan) who takes a job in England to be the nanny to a boy named Brahms. When she arrives she realizes the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Heelshire (Jim Norton and Diana Hardcastle), are a bit old to have an eight year old son. T ...

Do you like: Starbucks? Uggs? Leggings? Instagramming food? Greek yogurt? Brunch? Yoga or barre? Lauren Conrad (and you loved her since she was LC)? Ryan Gosling? A good top knot or messy bun? If you answered yes to these, and especially if you are a white female in your late teens and early twenties, I'm sorry to tell you, but you are what many in pop culture consider "basic." The basic girl A girl who embraces her girly-girl side and isn't afraid to read US Weekly with her nude gel manicured nails as she adds baby fashion pins to her "Future Baby" Pinterest board while sipping a pumpkin spice latte sounds like a girl I would hang out with. But, *gasp,* this girl is commonly referred to as basic, a basic girl, or my favorite, basic bitch. This mindless term, used as an adjective and noun, is multifaceted in that it can be an insult or term of endearment. Ex: (Looking up your ex's girlfriend on Facebook).
