    Confession time, moms. How many of you have secretly eyed your daughter’s (or son’s!) newest wardrobe addition and wished you could wear it yourself? Let’s face it: Our clothes might be pretty and flirty and fun in that "grownup" kind of way, but they’re not Fun the way our kids’ clothes are. 

    We moms are often the ones buying our children’s wardrobes and dressing them, so it’s only natural we’d be fantasizing about what life would be like if it were okay for us to wear sneakers that light up or sparkly pink tutus. Sadly, even if it WERE okay, they don’t make all those amazing pieces in our sizes -- unless we are really, really tiny. But they should. They TOTALLY should.

    Personally, I can think of at least a dozen things my 7-year-old daughter wears that I wish I could pull off myself. Here are nine kids' items I would totally raid my daughter's closet for without any shame.

    Jessica Simpson has always had amazing legs, no matter what weight she’s been. She's also never afraid to show them off in everything from shorts to mini skirts. We've seen a lot of leg and we've ALWAYS wanted more.

I wonder if we'll be seeing her in a short wedding dress for her upcoming ceremony with fiance Eric Johnson?

    Every summer I start in the same way. I promise myself THIS year will be different.

    Mascara is the one kind of makeup that has the power to transform your face. If I had to take just one thing from my makeup kit with me on a deserted island, it would be mascara, hands down. Nothing opens the eyes up and hides fatigue quite like it.

    Personally, I've become accustomed to the expensive brands that cost between $20 and $30. But even the fancier mascaras still go bad within a year or less -- so why spend that much in the first place?

    People swear by drugstore mascaras, especially certain classics. The next time you need to replace yours, why not try one of these 10 great mascara picks for under $15?

    We've all experienced the feeling you get after a tough workout, when you can feel your muscles begin to tighten up, and you know that tomorrow -- or even worse, the day after -- you are going to be in a world of hurt. If you have time, what's the first thing you can think of to try to offset the pain? Stretching, right? Well, as it turns out, research shows that static stretching is not the best way to alleviate future soreness. Static stretching, for those who aren't familiar, is the kind where you hold a stretch position for 20 or 30 seconds. Active stretches, on the other hand, work to stretch out your muscles, while you're getting your blood flowing, which is the best way for your body to begin the repair process.

    So guess we'd better get started, right? In that spirit, check out these 8 active stretches that will make you feel fantastic after working out.

    It's easy to look good when you're a teenager or in your 20s. Your metabolism is faster, you can get away with wearing ridiculous fashions and no one bats an eye, and -- the least fair fact of all -- you can stay up all night and somehow won't look like a ghoul the next day (what's that about anyway)?

    Most women accept that they have to work a little harder as they get older. And some are a lot like these 8 female celebrities -- they actually look even more gorgeous the older they get.
