Everyone’s ears pop at some point in their life. It probably happens to you in elevators, on planes, any time some sort of altitude change is experienced. So, have you ever wondered why and how that works? Well, we have the answer for you right here in this video.
The video explains that “the ear can be divided into three sections: the outer ear, the middle ear and the inner ear.” The middle ear is where all the magic happens. It’s an “air-filled chamber” connected to your throat and nose through the eustachian tube. Air moves through it to keep the pressure in your ear normal. However, external elements, like air pressure, effect the pressure in your ear, which causes your ears to clog. To balance out the pressure, your ear pops through the eustachian tube. And all is at balance one again.
Monday just got a whole lot more bearable thanks to our good friends over at Bloomingdale’s. Today and tomorrow, they’re offering $25 off every $100 you spend with code SHOP25 at checkout. Now if that’s not the perfect way to ease yourself back into the workweek, we don’t know what is.
Now if you’re anything like us, you don’t need anyone to point you in the right direction at Bloomies. It’s pretty much impossible to go wrong there. But we would like to point out that the spring dress and denim selection is pretty amazing, so that’s where we’ll be starting.
We all sing along and mumble through those confusing lyrics of our favorite song. But when you’re the star, and you’re performing live in front of your fans, you should probably know the words to your songs. Probably being the key word, because it doesn’t always happen that way.
However, what could be an extremely embarrassing moment, actually turns into a good laugh for both the celebs and the crowd…well, in some cases. Check out which celebrities forgot the lyrics to their own songs in the videos below:
Mariah Carey slipped up at the 1:30 mark. But in case you missed it, she admitted to the flub 20 seconds later.
Pink just gave up at the 40-second mark, but she got back on track…well, kind of.
Adele just chose to start over 30 seconds into Chasing Pavements. It’s cool, she’s Adele, and it was an adorable moment.
Sheryl Crow used her age as an excuse to mess up this performance. She’s older, but not that old. Sorry Sheryl.
A younger, more innocent Miley Cyrus messed up Fly on the Wall 1 minute and 10 seconds into the song.
At the 30-second mark, we don’t know if Jay-Z was just into the music or he forgot the words. The crowd didn’t seem to mind.
Kanye forgot lines to his verse, but this time, Jay-Z had his back.
Mark Chester from Linkin Park forgot the words to Crawling (at 1:40) and dropped an f-bomb, making this video NSFW.
Ariana Grande forgot the words to Right There, but it still sounded so pretty as she mumbled.
Kelly Clarkson messed up the bridge in Because of You at the 2-minute mark, but she stayed in tune.
Even Mrs. Carter messed up the words to one of her classics 2 minutes and 40 seconds into this clip. It proves Beyonce is human.
Hayley from Paramore forgot the lyrics at the 1:04 mark. Ain’t it fun to make the audience sing your song?
And we still don’t know what Iggy Azalea is talking about here. Did she forget the lyrics or just make up words?
With MILLY for DesigNation now available for pre-order, Kohl’s isn’t wasting any time getting people geared up for their next designer collab. They just announced the big news and their next design partner is… Thakoon!
Inspired by London, Thakoon for DesigNation marks the store’s seventh designer collaboration. Thakoon will join the ranks of designers like Peter Som, Elie Tahari, Catherine Malandrino and of course, Michelle Smith of MILLY. Thakoon for DesigNation will hit stores and kohls.com in the fall of 2015 and everything in the line will be less than $200.
Of the new collaboration, Nancy Feldman, executive vice president of women’s fashion at Kohl’s, had this to say:
“DesigNation is built to inspire our customers with designs shaped by some of the world’s most popular destinations, and Thakoon Panichgul is the perfect person to bring London to life as he is known for showcasing distinct, global influences through his collections.”
For now we only have this sketch of the line, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we get a sneak peek at line!
You already know how we feel about inappropriate graphic tees and penis jewelry, so now it’s time to explore the world of drug-inspired trinkets. We’re not entirely sure who wears these, let alone how they even got made, but gone are the days of innocent heart jewelry. Now there are rings in the shape of Xanax pills and MDMA lockets. But if hard drugs aren’t your thing (really, you don’t say?!), then you can swap what you thought were your edgy earrings for a pair of weed leaf studs. Yes, all this jewelry is for real, and even big names like Chanel and British artist Damien Hirst (remember his pill backpack for The Row?) are in on this trend.
But we want to know, are you crazy enough to walk around wearing this drug jewelry? Check out all the best pieces we found in the slideshow and let us know what you like in the comments below!
She may be a world class model, but Gigi Hadid is just a concert-loving teen at heart. Well, Coachella is not just any old concert. It is the festival to be seen at and this style star waisted no time in making some fashion statements on the lawn. Like when she turned this Express Layered Coin and Chain Bib Necklace ($49.50) into a – wait for it – belt. Now not all of us have 24 inch waists to pull this off, but we should all try. Plus, this necklace would look pretty fab around your neck, an easy statement piece to spice up that LDB. Whatever you do with it, the options are endless. Snag it below!

I’m not a huge makeup girl, but I am a diehard when it comes to moisturizers. I apply full body lotion at least twice a day, every day because I’m just crazy like that. As you can imagine I go through a lot of lotion, but my current fave is Soap & Glory’s The Righteous Butter. The scent is pleasant, yet mild, but let me tell you it leaves my skin insanely soft. I apply it every morning when I get out of the shower and right before I go to bed and it’s pretty much the reason my skin isn’t cracked and ashy after the winter we had here in NYC.
Now be warned, this is body butter so it’s pretty thick. Of course, the beauty of that is that a little goes a long way and it does absorb pretty quickly. If you’re looking for a way to hydrate skin that’s been desperately dry during the cold months, this is it.
It’s been just over one week since Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake welcomed their baby son, Silas, into the world, but he’s already made his Instagram debut. Proud papa JT posted this adorable pic earlier today of baby Silas sporting some Grizzlies gear in support of the Memphis Grizzlies who are currently playing in the NBA playoffs.
Obviously, the little guy is insanely cute, but let’s all take a moment to ogle over Jessica Biel who looks radiant in this pic. What a gorgeous family!

Denim is way big this season, so you’ll probably be investing in a lot if it. But instead of shelling out cash on a new pair of denim shorts, just turn an old pair of jeans into cutoffs—it’s super simple, check out the clip to see for yourself:
Here’s a quick write-up of the steps!
Step 1: Try on the jeans to figure out how short you’d like your cutoffs to be, then use a safety pin to pinpoint the length.
Step 2: Using a ruler and pencil, draw a line at the spot where you plan to cut. For a more flattering pair of shorts, angle the line downwards to create a slight V.
Step 3: Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut one pant leg at a time, following the path of the line you drew.
Step 4: Finally, throw your new shorts into the wash for that extra fray.
Forget Vegas – there’s plenty of fun to be had at a bachelorette party without having a drop of alcohol (really!). We’ve come up with a list of our favorite ideas to celebrate the bride to be and make sure everyone has a good time.
Spa Day. Every woman can use a day of rest and relaxation, so book a spa day for the bridal party. An afternoon of massages, manis and pedis will help the bride de-stress from all of that wedding planning.
Paint Nite. Group painting classes are popular now for Ladies’ Night Out, and you can do it with or without the alcohol. Get a group together to paint, eat and chat—and you’ll also have a beautiful work of art to take home at the end of the night. Find local classes at paintnite.com.
Dance Lessons. This is a great idea for a joint bachelor and bachelorette party, or you can go with just the girls. Who knows? Maybe you’ll come up with a dance to perform together at the reception. Either way, learning a few smooth moves is a lot of fun.
Cooking Classes. Take a cooking class to learn how to put together one special meal, and then enjoy it together (with or without the wine pairings).
A Mud Run. For the bride who loves to workout, a mud run could make for a memorable (although dirty) good time. Just make sure not to hold it too close to the wedding date in case there are any injuries! You can find a local run near you at godirtygirl.com or mudrunfun.com.
Psychic Night. Who doesn’t enjoy a glimpse into the future? Hire a psychic or Tarot Card reader come to your house for a special group reading.
Scavenger Hunt. Create a scavenger hunt with hints based on the bride and groom’s relationship, with the last clue sending the guest of honor to her favorite restaurant where you’ll all be waiting to celebrate with her.
Amusement Park. Take a girl’s trip to Florida or California to visit Disney, or simply spend the day at your local amusement park to ride the roller coasters, play some games and eat as much junk food as you can handle.
Be sure to check out the dos and donts of planning a bridal shower, plus 7 things you should do on the way to the wedding ceremony.
I’m starting to step up my workout game, and what’s getting me motivated is new clothes. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect black leggings, every gal needs a pair, and came across Splits 59. The brand makes these Nova Trailblazer Performance Capris ($98) that feature a pretty sweet black reflective trim, so of course they caught my eye.
I got the chance to try them (yep, that’s me up there!) and let me tell you, they are the creme de la creme of workout leggings. The design includes all that important stuff, like moisture wicking and quick dry technology, plus there’s a hidden waistband pocket that’s big enough to hold your iPhone, but is completely unnoticeable when nothing is in it. The one caveat: size up. I usually don’t follow that rule but you really have to with these leggings–it even warns you on the product page. Otherwise, these are pretty much perfect.

Earlier this week Sarah Jessica Parker was snapped wearing this Happy Oceans, Happy Life sweatshirt and we immediately had to hunt it down. I mean, who doesn’t love a good graphic sweatshirt with an earth-friendly message?
We did some digging and it turns out the sweatshirt isn’t even out yet. It’s part of G-Star’s Raw for the Oceans collection, which is being rolled out over the next few weeks. On the bright side, you can sign up to be notified when the sweatshirt is in stock so if you want it, I would get on that list ASAP. Click below to sign up.

Rebecca Minkoff‘s handbags are a staple of every cool girl’s closet, and here’s a new one that should be added to yours immediately: the designer has teamed up with Piece & Co. on a Mini Mac and a Mini Perry featuring hand-crafted tapestry. We’re loving the tapestry vibes on the bags, as well as the fact that the proceeds support Piece & Co’s mission to provide employment for female artisans in developing countries. Get ‘em now:
It’s the weekend and your plans aren’t complete without some quality shopping time over at Lord & Taylor.

Shoes, dresses, shorts–they have it all from designers you know and love like Vince Camuto, Calvin Klein and Michael Kors.
The new #TheDress is this brain teaser that asks the question, “When is Cheryl’s birthday?”
Here’s the story: The puzzle was originally created for advanced high school math students in Singapore. Then ,TV talk show host Kenneth Kong posted it to Facebook and, well, we know how the Internet works, don’t we? Since then, the World Wide Web has been trying to figure out when Cheryl’s birthday is (see Slate, NYTimes, CNN, etc). But what we want to know is why did Cheryl make her birth date so damn cryptic? Is she not a birthday person or what?
Can you figure it out? In case you want the answer, The New York Times has a great explanation here. Good luck!
