I am a writer and occasional editor. My work has appeared in Better Homes & Gardens, First for Women, Woman's World, AOL, YourTango, and various other publications. Interests include holistic health/fitness, reading, pop culture, jewelry, astrology, summer, baking, and cooking with lots of veggies and spices! I've lived in Chicago, Boston, London, L.A. and Manhattan and now reside in north NJ with my Jersey boy husband. In our free time, we frequent BYOB spots, buy overpriced produce (but it's so pretty!) at Whole Foods, and do bizarrely huge loads of laundry.

Parents spend a good deal of time wondering about and analyzing their child's verbal development. But there may come a day when you miss their baby blather, which of course makes absolutely NO sense but can still be as adorable as it is hilarious. Especially when you interact with them and attempt to have a "real" conversation -- or faux argument.
That's exactly what this father did in a now viral video appropriately titled, "You can't reason with babies." While working on some laundry out on his apartment balcony, his tot fervently tries to argue ... to be let out? That he wants to move out? That mommy is a meanie? We're not sure. Neither is his daddy, but he sure had a hilarious way of communicating with his chatty kiddo!
From total nightmare to dreams come true in the blink of an eye ... or is that really how tonight's Scandal season 3finale played out? Well, for some, it sure did ... like Papa Pope. Yep, no matter that B-613 was quashed by Pope & Associates ... Command seems to have come out on top once again. But we're getting ahead of ourselves.
Like every episode Shonda's delivered, the finale was a twisting, turning, nonstop roller coaster of crazy and shocking, sad and disturbing, tearjerking and romantic. Let's count down the top 7 "OMG" cliffhangers that we just know are going to leave us on the edge of our seats all summer ...
(Obviously, don't read on if you don't want to know what went down tonight!)
Of all the Fifty Shades of Grey cast members, Rita Ora has been above and beyond one of the most candid. Case in point: Her interview with MTV on the red carpet at the Movie Awards this past weekend, in which she had no qualms getting into some of the behind-the-scenes scoop ...
While hosting an event in New York City for No Ceilings, a project of the former secretary of State and the Clinton Foundation that evaluates the progress of women and girls, the 34-year-old former first daughter made the announcement.
In her new book,The Kind Mama, Alicia Silverstone covers everything from her pregnancy to her beliefs on circumcision and vaccination. Though the book has only been out for two days, it's already got tongues wagging, as does a recent interview the famous vegan actress did with People about her parenting philosophies, in which she says she's "not against Western medicine. The problem is we’re using it as a first step for everything, even when it’s not needed."
Alicia deserves applause for bravely putting that sentiment out there! She's right: We are far too quick to jump to conventional medicine "fixes" -- which can be disappointingly closer to temporary bandages than true cures -- for too many of our ailments.
