    Good news for those of you who love to appear as disheveled as humanly possible: this fall it will be even easier to look like a total mess, thanks to the latest jeans trend. Coming to us straight from the bowels of 1987, fashion designers have, yet again, resurrected a popular favorite: distressed boyfriend jeans, otherwise known as ripped jeans that appear shapeless from the thighs down and that you must pair with six-inch leopard-print heels so that the world doesn't mistake you for a teenage boy.

    Ever since I abandoned ballet as a little girl, I've been waiting for this: an excuse to wear a tutu. Since becoming a grown-up, it's been looking pretty bleak. You just don't walk around dressed like a ballerina, at least not if you want to be taken seriously. But I think the tutu may be having a moment this year! I could be wrong, but I swear, I've been seeing tutus everywhere -- yes, for grown-up women.

    Can I pull it off? DARE I pull it off? It all depends on the styling. It just so happens that there are ways to wear a tulle skirt without looking like a little girl playing dress-up. Here are 9 styles we think any mom can pull off.

    I've got a wedding to attend at the end of the month, and updos on my mind. I love having my hair down, but there's something so extra special and fancy-feeling about wearing it up (and not just thrown in a ponytail, ahem). Plus: it's so much cooler, literally!

    I found a bunch of really pretty updos that involve braids; they're a little extra glam and all totally do-able at home. Check them out -- and click on the tutorials if you need any guidance. You need at least medium-length hair for most of these, but there's one that's just for short(er) hair!

    Would you ever wear a braid to a formal event?

    Have you been to your local supermarket and had your child stop in her tracks to stare longingly at a box of her favorite cereal? Apparently, it's not a Pavlovian response to what's inside -- it's our kids being mesmerized by the characters on the package looking right into their eyes.

    Conveniently, these tantalizing boxes of breakfast goodness just happen to be at eye level, begging our children to pay attention to them. This, according to a new study, is all on purpose.

    For those of you do engage in ladyscaping down there, I've just heard about the latest trend in bikini waxes. But it's not even going to make sense when I describe it, so sit down and get ready to hear the most mind-meltingly absurd personal grooming idea ever. Ready? It's called the full-bush Brazillian.

    Basically you're rocking a 70's vibe (as Gwyneth once put it) in the front, but waxing everything else bare. Your undercarriage? Zip. The front of you? Full cavewoman. For real. This is a thing women are getting done ... supposedly.

    I've been writing online for a long time, and I thought I'd address a few questions I've had over the years about how the sausage gets made. Excuse me if this is a little insidery, but I wanted to talk a little about how and why we're now inundated with "You Won't Believe How This Smiling Baby Will Change Your Life!" and "35 Funniest Sidewalk Signs of All Time" posts on Facebook and Twitter.

    There are a few types of web content, the most prevalent of them being "online journalism." I wrote a book about it, and it's what I've been doing for most of my professional career. And I'm part of the problem. Let me explain.

    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.

    A cancer survivor who wore a tutu during a race was made fun of in the April issue of Self and was extremely offended, to say the least.

    The magazine writer declared war on tutus worn during races in a column called "The BS Meter." Underneath a photo of two women wearing superhero T-shirts and tutus -- one of whom was Monika Allen, who was undergoing chemo for brain cancer -- the caption read: ”A racing tutu epidemic has struck NYC’s Central Park, and it’s all because people think these froufrou skirts make you run faster. Now, if you told us they made people run from you faster, maybe we would believe it.”

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, especially when it comes to fashion, but this Self writer was totally off-base and ill-informed.

    The entire world is watching as authorities and news organizations try to get to the bottom of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, so of course, hackers are latching onto the tragedy to try to scam unsuspecting Facebook users. The new malware, which could land on your Facebook News Feed at any given moment now, uses fake news alerts and videos to lure you to click.

    According to The Independent, "The posts contain videos that look legitimate and claim the plane has been found in various places, from the Bermuda Triangle to having been spotted at sea, with many stating its passengers are 'alive' or 'saved.' Many of the links are prefixed with the words 'Breaking' or 'Shocking video' to grab people's attention." Ugh.

    And that's just the tip of the iceberg ...
