I'm a high heel wearing writer, magician, sleuth, and twin mama with tattoos. My not-so-secret past includes doing time as the Editor of Playgirl magazine. I get personal on Mommy With Tattoos and mouthy at Daily Momtra. I'm obsessed with taking naps, 70s vintage, chocolate chip cookies, reality TV, and Mexican food (not too spicy, please).
There is a new campaign that shows support for boys who wear pink because of the sad reality that we need something like this in 2014. Pink is, as we all know, a color. And apparently it's a "girl" color, which means that boys shouldn't wear it unless they want to be considered a girl. Being considered a girl is supposedly a bad thing.
Martine Zoer, founder of Quirkie Kids, is doing something about this. Her brand makes pink tees for boys and girls, and she's using her platform to promote acceptance of boys who wear pink with a Free to Wear Pink campaign. As a mother of a boy, I think this campaign is needed.
There are women against feminism. I am not one of those women. I have experienced misogyny firsthand. Countless times. I've been witness to prejudice against women in several forms. I would love to live in a world where this wasn't an issue -- for me, for my daughter, for my sister and friends, for all women -- but as the saying goes, we still have a long way to go. Even now.
Still, there is a movement called Women Against Feminism, and while I don't agree with all they have to say, I do think their core message is similar. If only we could work together on that. Women are people, just like men, and we deserve equal rights and treatment. But the movement is divisive, and that is not helpful. If there is any doubt feminism -- in its true form -- is needed, watch this video called "If Men Were Women."
Just when we thought the movie Fifty Shades of Grey couldn't get any hotter, there is new evidence that may make the flick the hottest film ever. And it's all because of one woman, and that woman is Beyonce. Beyonce! Bey has dropped some hints that she has a part in the sexy film.
Dearly beloved, today we celebrate the marriage of Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo in what may very well be one of the most fashionable weddings of the year. The bride wore Marchesa! (Nicole Richie also wore Marchesa when she got married.) They tied the knot in a very romantic tent surrounded by around 300 guests at Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico. I've learned that the venue is a ten-acre organic farm in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains ... and it's absolutely gorgeous with breathtaking views surrounded by the beauty of nature. Wow, Adam. Good job for a guy who said he'd never get married.
You'll never guess what famous and iconic musician sang at the wedding.
Even though Prince Harry said that his nephew Prince George resembled a young Winston Churchill, we still found the cuteness in it. It was Harry talking and he can almost do or say anything and we'd still find him charming. The same goes for Prince George who is about to turn 1 on July 22nd. Where did the time go? I bet his mum Kate Middleton and dad Prince William are saying the same thing.
