This year’s Super Bowl was full of amazing performances (sup, Beyoncé?), but Lady Gaga‘s rendition of the national Anthem is one for the books. Clad in a sparkling red Gucci jumpsuit and sky-high American flag heels, Gaga kicked off Super Bowl 50 with an emotional and beautiful performance. She completely blew the Internet away and has received nothing but an outpouring of praise. Here’s how many celebrities reacted to her performance:
Lady gaga killed it!!!! So happy for her!!! Yaaasssssssss gorge!!!

This might be hard to hear, but there really isn’t really a prescribed amount of time for washing or replacing your shower curtain and liner. BUT I NEED TO KNOW! Oh, you’ll know. It’s simple, really — once there’s an obvious buildup of mold or smell of mildew, it’s time for a change (or at least a wash!).
Unless your liner is torn, a good cold wash will probably get the job done. Stick your liner in the machine with a small amount of detergent and about 1/2 a cup of white vinegar. Add a few towels to the load to avoid damaging the liner in-spin.
Does it look clean??
—> YES. Hooray, you’ve found a method that works!
—> NO. If a wash doesn’t get rid of all of the mold or residue, it really is time to buy a new liner.

Remember that time I used a cleanse to get back in to skinny jeans after having a baby? YAS! So good. The cleanse was the Bikini Cleanse (a 7-day program that involves meal-replacement smoothies, ketones sticks, detox tea and extremely clean eating), and I’ve done it a handful of times since, usually to prep for a beach vacation or to hit a new weight loss goal. It’s seriously so good (the last time I lost 10 lb.!), but the only challenge with a 7-day cleanse is that you have to make it through a weekend–which can be really tough. (Seriously, though, no wine for a week!?)
Luckily, founder Nicole Pollard knows that the struggle is real–and just did the best thing ever by launching a 3-day version. Oh, heck yes! “After continually hearing that our #bikinibabes wanted to repeat the cleanse more often to stay on track, we created a shorter cleanse that they could do the first three days of every month,” she explains about the new 3-Day Weight Loss System ($89), which just won our coveted Beauty Essential award.
The 3-day version is a great way to re-set your eating habits (Pollard recommends doing it monthly if you can) and re-introduce healthy foods and mindful eating. Ladies who tend to diet then fall off (that’s everyone, right?) will really benefit from this shorter program. And since the diet consists of incredibly healthy, organic vegetables and proteins, it’s a chance to give your body the food/nutrients it actually needs instead of the other crap we all have a tendency to consume. We cannot say enough good things about it–but I think it’s best if you just try it for yourself. (Also, p.s. they now sell the Ketones sticks and detox tea separately!). What are you waiting for?
I literally hate peeling oranges so I rarely eat them because of it. The sticky juice and skin get stuck under my nails and the feeling makes me cringe. I also don’t like my hands smelling like citrus all day. Anyway, I randomly came up with an easy way to start a peel and it’s kind of a game changer, if I do say so myself.
All you need is your orange and a knife. Using the knife make an X anywhere on the orange. This creates four corners and a really easy way to grab at the skin, which you can then start peeling back. Continue peeling as usual until all the skin is removed. This method also works for clementines!
If you frequently paint your nails at home, then you need to buy yourself this genius manicure tool. It’s called Tweexy and it’s basically magic. Here’s why.

This silicone product, which looks like a Ring Pop, holds a bottle of nail polish on top of your fingers. It’s super convenient and makes it so easy to paint your nails in a bed or on a couch because the bottle has no way of tipping over. Plus, Tweexy fits all kinds of nail polish bottles and secures it in place so well that you can open a bottle with one hand! And don’t worry about switching it to the other hand once you’ve painted on polish. Simply squeeze the tabs on the side and it will open the finger holes so you can easily slip the ring off without smudging your nails!

Calling all recent grads! Yeah, YOU! Your Starbucks run isn’t getting any cheaper — actually it’s increasing in price (the demand is REAL). So now’s about time to learn a real adult skill. Shouldn’t this be like a Freshmen Seminar? HOW TO BREW COFFEE 101. Unless you graduated from the school of life, you probably skipped this lesson… SO, HERE IT IS:
First things first, buy a coffee maker. Despite the gross amount of $$$ you spend on coffee per week, coffee makers and ground coffee itself are pretty inexpensive! I recommend the simple (but effective) Mr. Coffee.
There are TONS of different models, but for the sake of simplicity we’ll refer to the very ordinary machine above.
Now, you will need a filter. You can choose to use either the disposable paper version, or invest (for like $6) in a gold, permanent filter that you can just dump and rinse. Personally, I recommend the gold filter. It’ll make life a LOT easier, and you’ll never have to deal with the early morning no-filter fiasco that many of us know oh too well.
Last (and most important) thing: COFFEE BEANS! If you shop for your coffee somewhere that offers a grinder (like Trader Joes), you can save a few bucks and grind the beans yourself. But if you’d rather skip the hassle, you can buy the pre-ground alternative.
Okay, now you’re ready to get down to business!
First step, flip up the lid to your coffee maker. In the circular area above the coffee pot, place your filter. Now, decide how much coffee you’d like. One Tablespoon is equal to one cup, but “one cup” by the standards of your machine is V DIFFERENT than what you’re imagining. If I want to comfortably fill two regular-sized mugs, I’d add 6 tablespoons to the filter. So if I were just making coffee for myself, I’d add 2-3 tablespoons. Capiche?
Next step, fill your coffee pot with water so that it holds as many cups of water as there are tablespoons of ground coffee in the filter. Pour the water into the space around the filter — read: the back part with the numbers, NOT THE ACTUAL FILTER OR FILTER AREA (I’ve done this wayyyy too many times).
You’re almost there! Flip the coffee maker lid back down and put the pot back in place below the filter. Flip the switch so that you (literally) get the green-light, and ta-da, you’re a-brewin’! Grab a mug and you’re off on the amazing caffeine-fueled adventure we call life.

DREAMS DO COME TRUE. LOVE IS REAL. These are facts because Channing Tatum whispered sweet nothings into the ear of a random woman on national TV. Confused? Here’s what happened.
The actor stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night and thought it would be fun to “do something special for a stranger.” Next thing we know, Guillermo and Jimmy are chatting up some girl on Hollywood Boulevard and asking her to come to the studio. The woman, already losing it, walks on stage to find Channing freakin’ Tatum sitting on a loveseat waiting for her. IS THIS REAL LIFE? She asks to hug him twice. This woman is my hero.
Then, Channing puts his leg over her knee, whispers candy hearts in her ear and FEEDS THEM TO HER. He even pulls out some Magic Mike moves. I mean… we should all move to L.A. now.
As much as we love experimenting with newest makeup trends, there is one downside: taking it off! Who hasn’t tried to completely remove mascara in fear of also taking every last eyelash off, too?
After trying one too many “makeup removing” products that simply didn’t get the job done, we went to an expert for the best way to properly wash off cosmetics without doing more harm than good. Makeup artist and founder of Susan Posnick Cosmetics, Susan Posnick is here to provide a step-by-step guide to properly removing your makeup at night.
Step 1: Start by removing your eye makeup. “My favorite product for removing eye makeup is Bioderma soap-free makeup remover, as it is gentle on the eyes, PH-balanced and non-oily,” Posnick says. “When removing mascara, I recommend wetting a cotton pad with Bioderma and applying it directly to the eyes. Always work down first to get the majority of it off your lashes without pulling them. Use a new cotton pad soaked in water to wipe everything away.”
Another super-affordable option? Follow Posnick’s step using a cotton pad or Q-Tip and Johnson’s Baby Oil. From past experience, I urge you to remove your contact lenses before this step.
Step 2: Remove your face makeup. “Bioderma can also be used on the face, but my go-to facial cleansers for my sensitive skin are: Naturopathica Aloe Cleansing Gel and Andalou Naturals Roses Cleansing Foam,” Posnick says. “I am partial to using natural, foaming cleansers as they make my skin feel clean without stripping it of its natural oils.”
As for your technique, Posnick says to start by dampening the skin, then applying your cleanser. To remove the cleanser, Posnick recommends a deep-cleansing and exfoliating device like FOREO, which fits in the palm of your hand, has no heads to clean or change out and can hold a charge for up to 300 uses. The Clarisonic Mia Fit is another great compact option.
Step 3: Follow up your cleansing routine with a non-alcoholic toner to ensure every trace of makeup has been zapped away. Simply apply toner to a cotton pad and swipe along your forehead, cheeks, chin and neck.
Step 4: Don’t forget to moisturize! Apply your favorite serums, oils or a Retin-A or retinol cream, followed by a hydrating night cream and eye cream.
And voila, you’re done!

Despite the popularity of the smoky eye, there actually is more than just one way to bring on the eye drama. Below, celebrity makeup artist Latisha Nicole Rankin offers three unique eyeshadow looks that are just as gorgeous as the tried and true smoky effect.
“Blues are such a raising trend right now, why not play with this color? If you are looking to steer away from the traditional smokey eye try adding navy’s instead of black and browns,” Rankin says.
Here’s how to create the look above:
1. Apply eye primer with your fingertip so the eyeshadow will pop and stay in place all day.
2. Apply your favorite shade of navy blue eyeshadow in your crease then take a shadow blending brush to blend the color lightly so it fades out.
3. Apply a color like Iced Blue from Bobbi Brown on your lids, then blend all colors together so everything looks soft and integrated. I suggest using a flat cream brush.
4. Last two steps involve liquid or gel liner, depending on preference. Add liner to your eyes, then apply mascara with volume and pop on your lashes of choice.
“Vibrant colors like greens and deep plums are a great alternative to smoke your eyes out with an edge,” Rankin says. Follow these steps to recreate the stunning look above:
1. Apply a deep, shimmer-y plum to your lids with a cream shadow brush. Rankin recommends Violet Plum by Bobbi Brown.
2. For the second step, there are two options. The first is to line the eyes with black gel top liner along with black liner in your waterline. The second option is to apply Bobbi Brown’s Black Plum shadow with a brush like #217 from MAC Cosmetics, blending it in your crease and on the lids giving a modern and trendy smokey eye appearance.
3. You can leave your brow bone bare or add a nude eyeshadow. Make sure you apply some deep plum eyeshadow under your lash line smudging it out towards the end.
“Pigments are a loose color powder that have an intense effect, so it is important to be very careful when applying the product as a little goes a long, long way,” Rankin says. Here’s how to get the intensely rich, colorful look above:
1. Pick your favorite pigment powder eyeshadow of choice. MAC makes an incredible line pigment color powders that come in incredible shades like Neo-Orange. You will be using a stern flat brush to apply. Spray water or your setting spray on the brush.
2. Once the brush is slightly damp, tap some powder onto brush.
3. Apply on your eyes!
4. Follow up with a coat or two of your favorite volumizing mascara.

Whether you believe it or not, astrology doesn’t merely dictate the kind of person you are; it also determines your approach to love. Aren’t you the least bit curious to find out why your ex boyfriend acts the way he does? I know I am! Here’s how zodiac signs influence your dating habits.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th).
Capricorns are my kind of people, especially when it comes to dating! They’re no-nonsense people who refuse to waste their time on just anyone. They’re known to be very selective and patient, so playing the “waiting the game” to find the right one is never an issue. They’re also described as being grounded and loyal, but not the most spontaneous of all signs. Their lack of adventure may be something to take into consideration when you’re feeling a little frisky… just saying.
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th).
When it comes to dating, the Aquarius sign is imaginative and adventurous! Their creative personalities tend to result in unconventional relationships, and we all know what that means! You never have to worry about revealing too much or experimenting with unusual things when it comes to dating an aquarius. If that doesn’t spell, love I don’t know what does. P.S. I’m a Valentine’s Day baby, go figure!
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th).
Are Pisces the perfect match? Some may say so. Pisces are known to be romantic, sensitive and extremely devoted. As wonderful as they may seem, they can be a little difficult to connect with as they value their alone time. They also don’t deal well with rejection, so don’t be surprised if your perfect Pisces suddenly disappears.
Aries (March 20 to April 19)
Aries are “down for anything!” Rules don’t apply for these troublemakers, so if you’re ready to spice up your love life then date an Aries! However, their spontaneous personality doesn’t play well with those who are clingy and overly emotional. Keep that in mind when you’re lust starts turning into love…
Taurus (April 20th to May 20th).
True to it’s bull symbol, a Taurus is persistent and stubborn. At times, their persistency can resemble with that of a “stage five clinger.” However if you’re attracted to passion and intensity, then this may be your perfect rodeo! Ride em cowboy!!
Gemini (May 21st to June 20th).
Tag you’re it! Geminis are hard to hold on to; their spontanity can make it difficult to keep their attention. If you’re lucky enough to catch a Gemini don’t let go; they’re the perfect mix of a best friend and lover. On the downside, their “go-go” mentality can be exhausting…. Get ready for a wild ride!
Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd).
A Cancer is nurturing, sensitive, and emotional, and thrives off helping and protecting others. Cancers will give you everything you’ll ever need in a relationship, however if you break their trust, you’re out as quick as you came in. Be caring yet cautious!
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd).
Rawr!—the sign of the lion demands the spotlight in a relationship and usually gets it. Leos tend to be aggressive by nature, and flirtatiou by choice. They love attention, therefore they’re not afraid to step up to the plate and make the first move. Beware: Leos have a reputation for liking a little drama once in awhile. A good lovers’ quarrel never hurt anyone. Right?
Virgo (August 24th to September 22nd).
Virgos are often considered the best partners. Go figure, I’ve never dated one, but that’s besides the point. Virgos are said to be cool, calm and collective, which makes for an easygoing relationship. They also look at things logically and without emotion, which can be good during a heated argument.. On the downside, their biggest obstacle is their shyness, so don’t take it personally when Mr. Right isn’t Mr. Right now.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd).
Libras are the most balanced of the zodiac, hence representing the scale symbol. They pride themselves in seeking fairness in life and love, therefore often coined as being “people persons.” However, their people pleasing mentality can often lead to their indecisiveness in relationships. That’s some balancing act.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st).
Caution! Scorpios are A LOT to handle. If you’ve ever dated a Scorpio you know exactly what I’m referring to. Scorpios are often described as being. jealous, possessive, suspicious and manipulative. Oh that’s all!? Hold on, I’m not done. As hard-headed as Scorpios may be, they do bring a lot to the table. Their independent and determined behavior often leads to them being extremely successful in business, that’s not such a bad thing after all. At least Scorpios know what they want, right?
Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st).
Sagittarius do not bullshit.They’re straightforward and free spirited. However, their free-spirited nature tends to leave them single more often than not. Some might label them as being commitment phobes, but who are we to judge? On the bright side, they’re full of energy and will never leave you yawning!
