Self-proclaimed bargainista and sale rack extraordinaire. Runner of everything from 5ks to marathons. I love the freedom of not having a plan, but generally feel lost without one. Losing 70 pounds is my greatest life accomplishment, so far.

    Your wedding will probably be the biggest day of your life (aside from the whole "having a child" thing). Chances are, you've been dreaming about it for a very long time. From the flowers surrounding the altar to the save-the-dates, no detail will go overlooked once you're planning your own. When it comes to "creativity," though, couples now more than ever have been taking things a bit too far.

    You know what I'm talking about, right? The CRAZY, elaborate wedding invitations. The filmed save-the-dates. Nothing is too over-the-top. Nothing is off-limits.

    Take David DiCicco and Rachael Batts, for example, who recreated iconic movie posters like those from Lord of the Rings and Casablanca to announce their nuptials. But they're not the only outrageous wedding planners. We found a whole bunch of them!

    There have been plenty of hot and happenin' trends over the past couple years that many of us haven't necessarily been able to get on board with. For me, I'm still puzzled by this whole reemergence of the crop top and can't even imagine attempting to rock overalls. But one trend I can get down with? The jumpsuit.

    Now before you get all like "are you SERIOUS?!" on me, hear me out: When styled and worn correctly for your body type, the jumpsuit can be the perfect option for daytime casual or dressy evening.

    Have I piqued your interest? Good. Check out these 5 dos and don'ts for rockin' this season's hottest trend: the jumpsuit.

    Guys. GUYS. Have you seen Catherine Giudici lately? No no, not like -- getting married to Bachelor star Sean Lowe, lately. As in just the other day when she revealed her hot new hair style. That's right, Catherine Giudici got bangs (at a joint haircut with her hubby, nonetheless!) and she looks amazeballs. I may not be the biggest CG fan in the world, but I'll be the first person to admit that lady looks good. Like, really good. Like, I'm already starting to forget what she looked like before bangs, good.

    Bangs are no minor decision for a woman older than say, oh, 14 years old. The wrong face shape, the wrong styling, there are so many wrong ways to go about this major hair change.

    Granted, we can't blame you for wanting a chop after seeing her gorgeous cut. The good news? We have expert tips from Mark Garrison of Mark Garrison Salon here in New York City. From best bangs for your face shape and bang no-no's, check out our guide to bangs here

    Cleaning is certainly a project, one that many women and men aren't exactly stoked to take on. The problem with that? That means that many of us don't know the proper way to do things, and admittedly can be super lazy when it comes time for that Sunday night clean sweep of the home.

    Scarily enough, your disinterest in being a modern day Martha Stewart could end up causing some serious problems. It's not your fault, you just didn't know better.
