As fashion girls, we'll admit that we kind of tend to drive our friends and family crazy when it comes to trying to shop for us - we just have a really defined personal style, okay? Ditto when it comes to shopping for our besties with amazing taste - what's a girl to do? Luckily for you, we've got you covered this holiday season with the ultimate guide to picking the perfect gift for your fashionista BFF, no matter her personal style. (Psst: Feel free to do a little shopping for yourself too - we won't judge!)
The Edgy Glamour Girl
The Boho Babe
The Minimalist Maven
All we want from our lives is soft, smooth hair that's manageable yet versatile. Is that too much to ask? Apparently so. It almost seems like everything we do to style, shape and tame our hair into submission is damaging it in some way. Whether it's a session with the curling iron or getting our monthly highlights, our favorite styling techniques can be seriously ruinous to our strands But what about the other things we do that we don't quite realize could be hurting our locks? What should we be staying away from other than the obvious?
For those of you who want to treat your hair with a little more r-e-s-p-e-c-t, be mindful of these few things: They could be killing your hair's vibe without you even knowing it.
1. Wearing Ponytails or Braids
2. Brushing Your Hair too Much
When brushing your hair out, work with a wide-toothed comb or brush that has plastic bristles. And be sure to be gentle! Pulling at a knot until it untangles will only break your hair more, so do it slowly and softly to minimize splits.
3. Shampooing too Often
4. Not Using the Right Conditioner
5. Not Giving Hair Time to Air-dry
6. Forgetting SPF
Hot Topic has been slaying it in the last year by upping its fashion game (finally!), and the company bumped it up another level with its new Doctor Who fashion line. Hot Topic is partnering with BBC America (the network the show is on) to bring a line of on-trend dress, cardigans, and sweaters - nine total pieces to the store and online.
Previously, the shop has had limited designs for the hit show, mainly this iconic "Tardis" dress:
Even if you don't watch the show (which, by the way - you totally should!), the outfits are #OnFleek. If the stylish threads still don't convince you to watch Doctor Who, take a look at the Eleventh Doctor:
(Side note: My favorite Doctor is David Tennant, who currently plays the deliciously evil Kilgrave in Netflix's hit show, Jessica Jones.)
Check out all of the new styles in BBC America's video below, shop the collection, and tweet me your favs @lizprugh!
If there is one step you should never ever skip during your daily skincare regimen it's moisturizing. Applying moisturizer each day and night will not only help repair dead skin cells, it can rejuvenate skin with added nutrients and even protect your face from harmful UV rays. It may seem like a good idea to hold back on the moisturizer if you're prone to acne or your skin is super sensitive, but no matter what skin type you have moisturizing is a complete essential. Luckily, there are moisturizers created for every skin type, helping fight break outs while hydrating dry skin. Here are some of the best we've found for no matter what your skin issues are and they fit just about anyone's budget!
1. Dry Skin
It's a complete no-brainer that dry skin needs moisture but you still want to make sure you find a moisturizer that won't dry skin out more. For all the dry skin ladies out there looking for a moisturizer that won't break the bank, CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM ($15, Amazon) has super hydrating ingredients like ceramides, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid to pack skin with moisture without feeling heavy or clogging pores. The added SPF 30 will also protect you from the sun. Eucerin Daily Protection SPF 30 Face Lotion ($7.99, Target) is another great product when you're on a budget. The formula offers intense hydration that lasts up to 24 hours without being overwhelming. It's also fragrance-free which will ensure your skin doesn't dry out and has an SPF of 30 as well.
But if you're looking for a luxury product that you're willing to splurge on, we recommend Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream ($42, Ulta). With a highly concentrated formula featuring an exclusive tri-radiance complex, this moisturizer works to protect and reinforce your skin's natural moisture barrier. It also contains mango butter, which can naturally restore moisture.
2. Oily Skin
Burt's Bees). This combination product will fight acne gently with a touch of salicylic acid while adding hydration with witch hazel, lemongrass and hops. Dermatologist tested and approved, this product will also help control your skin's oil production to help prevent future break outs. Keeping with the affordable theme, Alba Botanica Good and Healthy Anti-Oil Weightless Moisture Lotion ($6.65, Lucky Vitamin) is also inexpensive and great for acne-prone skin. Because this formula doesn't contain oil, it won't worsen your skin's acne. It also includes ingredients like kale and spinach to hydrate skin naturally.
And for you luxury product lovers, Renee Rouleau Daily Protection SPF 30 ($37.50, Renee Rouleau) is another great option. Because it contains zinc oxide, this moisturizer feels weightless and isn't greasy but will hydrate your skin with the best of them.
3. Combination Skin
If your skin has both oily and dry patches, you're going to want a moisturizer that is minimal on the oil but still focuses on hydration. Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer ($14.99, Aveeno) is a classic and will always do the job. Oil-free, this moisturizer uses both a total soy complex and salicylic acid to keep breakouts at bay while adding moisture to dry patches. For another great natural product that's paraben free, Yes to Tomatoes Daily Balance ($14.99, Yes to Carrots) features antioxidant lycopene to keep an anti-oil, pro-moisture balance.
For a product with a higher price tag, there is also Elta MD UV Daily Broad Spectrum SPF 40 ($28, Dermstore). Also packed with zinc oxide, Elta MD's product is quick drying for a lightweight feel that prevents acne. It also features SPF protection and comes in a few tinted shades.
4. Sensitive Skin
When your skin easily reacts to many different creams and cleansers, it can be hard to find a product that's just right. These moisturizers have been designed with sensitive skin in mind and we highly recommend them! Simple Vital Vitamin Day Cream ($16.99, Amazon) can help soothe your skin with ingredients like vitamins B5 and E, glycerin and bisabolol. Because it doesn't contain any fragrances, it's sure not to irritate your skin but hydrate it all the same. Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer ($12.94, Wal-Mart) is our next recommendation that's even less expensive than the first. Lightweight, not greasy and free of irritants, Cetaphil's moisturizer is perfect to keep skin healthy and protect it against the sun.
Number three on our list -Yes to Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer with SPF 30 ($14.99, Yes to Carrots)- is also affordable and completely natural. Packed with organic cucumbers, this formula is guaranteed to soothe your skin while almond oil and aloe keep it glowing. And it's got SPF!
What's your favorite moisturizer? Sound off in the comments below and let us know how you keep your skin fresh.
Just when we thought all of the amazing covers of Adele's "Hello" had blessed our ears beyond measure, a college marching band just pulled off the cover of all covers.
On the Friday after Thanksgiving, Baton Rouge's Southern University covered "Hello" during the school's annual Bayou Classic Battle of the Bands and their version of the singer's emotional ballad is absolutely everything.
The tune is immediately recognizable as the band expertly mimics the serious, emotion-laden first verse of "Hello." But that's only the calm before the spine-chilling storm as the band proves why they're known as "The Human Jukebox." Within a matter of seconds, they literally take the song from 0 to 100 with a powerful chorus that would probably earn a standing ovation from Adele herself.
The marching band joins a talented group of musicians who've covered "Hello" with their own unique perspectives, including Demi Lovato and a high school student from Seoul whose beautiful rendition left us speechless. Southern University's mind-blowing version has already garnered close to a million views on YouTube and we have to say it's definitely one of the most moving covers we've heard to date.
Now all we need is for Kelly Clarkson to put her spin on it and send us to cover fandom heaven.
Facebook is seriously crushing it right now.
In addition to introducing live video and moving photo collages, Facebook is beginning to sell tickets directly from its own event pages, Buzzfeed reports, as of yesterday.
Facebook...are you trying to take over our lives RN?
The change is simple: When you see a "Buy Now" button on an event's page, click on it to buy tickets without leaving Facebook. Then, the day of, head on over to Will Call and pick them up.
If you're worried about a steep uncharge, rest assured: Right now, Facebook isn't taking any cut of the ticket sales. They're just trying to make your life easier. How sweet.
This new feature is being tested in the Bay area, so if you don't live in San Francisco, you might still have to redirect to Ticketmaster for the time being.
Facebook, can you buy our groceries and do our laundry, too?
Santa's gonna have to step his game up - at least when it comes to delivering presents to celebrity kids like Shayla Gibson, the adorable (and insanely lucky) daughter of R&B singer and The Fast and the Furious star Tyrese.
Thanks to Tyrese, his 8-year-old is now the proud, new owner of her very own island, ET Online reports. While attending GQ's Men of the Year Party, the 36-year-old star dished on the pricey Christmas purchase when asked about the most lavish gift he's received.
"Well, I just bought my daughter an island," Tyrese said.
Um, yeah. We're totally clutching our pearls too.
Although he wouldn't disclose the location, Tyrese revealed that his daughter already knows about her larger-than-life Christmas gift.
"She knows all about it and the island is called Love Island. I'll be putting it up on my Facebook soon."
Mind = blown. Tyrese is obviously #DadGoals, Father of the Year and worthy of all the praise. If the gifts are this amazing at 8 years old, we can't help but wonder exactly how he plans to top this when Shayla celebrates her Sweet 16, goes to prom or gets married.
Ah, well. We'll happy to wait in the wings to see what he has in store for future gift-giving plans. This is one time where we're not ashamed to say we are definitely living vicariously through a kid.
Some old school Haylor dramz was brewing after Taylor Swift appeared to diss ex Harry Styles this week. And One Direction fans weren't having it...no surprise.
Taylor and Harry's brief dating stint was years ago, but there's always a little bit of lingering Haylor nonsense that pops up from time to time. Most recently, there was all the buzz that Harry wrote "Perfect" about his relationship with Taylor, but now comes new drama from fans who are pissed at Tay for liking a post on Tumblr that mentioned Harry.
The gist of the Tumblr post was basically a slam on Haylor shippers and people harassing Calvin on his social media accounts and defending Taylor and Calvin dating:
In part, it reads:
"[Calvin] is the man Taylor chose to be with, I'm sorry if you live in fantasy land and you think this relationship is a cover up or if you think that a relationship that has been f**king dead for years is gonna 'rise' (with a dude who had no maturity at all)."
The writer added, "I'm sorry for Kaylor and Haylor shippers that respect Calvin and Taylor's relationship..."
And by Taylor simply liking the post, Harry fans got all cray, believing his ex was dissing the One Direction star by agreeing he's immature.
Mmmokay then. Seems like a bit of a giant reach, tbh.
Meanwhile, Gossip Cop is shooting down a report from HollywoodLife that Calvin "gets jealous" thinking that Taylor still has feelings for Harry. Talk about a reach.
Harry always says the sweetest things about Taylor and what does she do? Like a post calling him immature. Ridiculous.- ˗ˏˋbeth noelleˎˊ˗ (@nakedmagic) December 3, 2015
I don't think Taylor meant any bad on Harry but why did the person writing the post feel the need to drag H lmao pic.twitter.com/oPY8UD0Sb5- ️ (@xanderritz) December 3, 2015
If there is one phrase that will always be #goals, it's Brows on Fleek. Having our brows at the pinnacle status of style will forever be our greatest beauty aim. Some nights we even dream of strolling down the streets with natural yet fierce brows that can stop people in their tracks. And because our brows are the definition of fleek, we suddenly become internet famous and Cara Delevingne becomes our brow bestie.
Sigh, if only that were real life.
But in the waking world when we actually go to fix our brows, they always seem to have a mind of their own, going in whichever direction they please and growing in odd patches. Luckily, #browsonfleek is a technique you can master: You just need the right tools and the right guidance. No matter what your brows are lacking, there is a tutorial out there to help show you how to fill in missing patches, create a glamorous arch and mix your brow kit to match your natural brow color perfectly. Here are three of our favorites that can help even those most helpless have the Beyonce of Brows.
Spoiler alert: Your spoolie brush will soon become your new bae.
1. When There's Nothing There to Begin WithIf your brows are practically M.I.A., filling them in is definitely a good idea. But when you don't have much of a starting shape to work with, it could be difficult to build brows that are symmetrical and normally proportioned. Fear not, brow-free friends! Beauty Blogger MayraTouchofGlam barely has any brows to begin with but still winds up with a to-die-for look after doing these few steps.
In her video, Mayra first takes her spoolie brush to comb her brows upwards and tweezes any excess, unwanted hairs. She then takes an angled brush that almost looks like it has chunks purposefully missing from it and dips it into a black and chocolate brown eye shadow shades. (Note: When you're doing this yourself, use shades that are closest to your natural hair color). Taking the brush, she begins to underline the bottom of her brows, going slightly underneath where her natural brow starts to make them look thicker. Rather than adding more eye shadow to the rest of her brow, she blends out the shadow already there so that the color isn't too dark. Using short strokes, she fills in the rest of her brows, using her spoolie brush to comb through the product and make it look more natural.
For the inner most part of her brows, Mayra uses a much lighter touch and applies less product. Turning the brush vertically, she creates the illusion of hairs by drawing them in with more short strokes.
Finish with some more spoolie brushing and you're done!
2. Something's There but it's Kind of PatchyIf you have a basic brow structure but it's sparse in some areas, Alexis Kaymor can show you how to make your brows look thick and sleek.
Brushing the brow hairs up with a spoolie brush (aka, brush bae), Alexis first trims hairs that are too long. Then, she takes the queen of all brow products Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow ($18, Sephora) with an angled brush and lines the base of her brow. After, she lines the top of her brow being careful to leave out the inner most part of her brows to keep the look more natural. Using short strokes in the direction her brow hairs grow, Alexis fills in the rest of her brow to add fullness. Taking more of the dip brow, Alexis uses her spoolie to add the product in to the inner part of her brow. She finishes off the look with concealer at the base and top of her brow to define them further.
3. When you got Brows for DaysEven if your brows are naturally thick you still may want to fill them in to give them a more defined shape and tames some of the unruly hairs. Beauty Blogger Anna Elizabeth has stunningly thick brows, but fills them in anyway to add a more defined arch.
Going in with a -you guessed it- spoolie brush, Anna brushes her brows out rather than upward to get them all in the same direction. Also using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow and an angled brush, she starts by lining the bottom of her brows avoiding the inner most part of her brows. After, she lines the top of her brows and fills in the middle only slightly. When she's done with that she moves to the inner corner only slightly filling those areas in, rubbing off excess product with her finger. Like Alexis, she finishes the look off with concealer and uses her spoolie brush once again to feather the product in.
It really is that easy.
Practicing yoga yields a range of benefits, including stress relief, but hearing about the potential health problems caused by wearing yoga pants might prompt you to sit cross-legged and take in a few deep breaths.
While it's certainly convenient to hit the studio for an intense yoga sesh then run a few errands in that same workout gear, an in-depth report on Mic.com highlights reasons why filling your closet with the latest athleisure fashions could actually be detrimental to your lady parts.
Basically, clothing that holds moisture close to the skin is great to work out in, but that's as far as you should go in sweat-soaked clothing, the site suggests. A dermatologist who spoke with Mic.com cited skin issues, fungus and vaginitis as three potential health problems that stem from spending too much time in your athleisure wear. It's basically the same advice we've heard about lingering in wet swimsuits too long - don't.
But before you toss out all your yoga pants and cancel plans to purchase items from Beyonce's upcoming althleisure line with Topshop, there are some simple solutions for avoiding these issues. Since moisture is a breeding ground for bacteria, definitely resist the urge to hang with the squad in wet or even damp yoga pants. Instead, change out of your soggy gear immediately after class.
The site also advises wearing "moisture-wicking clothes" during workouts and even suggests going commando as a way to give your skin a chance to breathe.
While you'll certainly please the fashion gods by making a flawless transition from the yoga mat to the streets, ditching the sweaty gear will earn you endless thanks from the critic that matters most - your vag.
Two months ago Selena Gomez revealed to us that she's battling lupus, but don't worry about her. The singer just opened up about her diagnosis, and thankfully she's doing great!
Selena says she is currently "very healthy" amid her battle with lupus. But she still isn't that comfortable about the attention she's received because of it.
The 23-year-old pop star had revealed her diagnosis just before the release of her new album Revival, adding that she had kept quiet about her disease for three years and had undergone chemotherapy to treat it.
"It has been overwhelming and the response has been very supportive, which is nice but it still makes me a little uncomfortable," Selena told Billboard.
"I waited for the right time to talk about it because I am in a great place and I'm very healthy. I'm not trying to be loud about it: It was time to use my platform to help."
In late 2013 and early 2014, Selena took a break from being a celebrity for a while as she battled the lupus complications. She spent two weeks at a treatment center, which sparked rumors she had entered rehab for substance addiction or for dealing with her Justin Bieber breakup.
"I wanted so badly to say, 'You guys have no idea. I'm in chemotherapy. You're assholes,'" the singer told Billboard in October. "I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again."
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that flares up from time to time, is incurable and spurs symptoms such as chronic fatigue, fever, joint pain, rashes and chest pain. The ailment can be controlled. According to the Lupus Foundation of America, common treatments including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids and other medications-in select cases, Cytoxan, a chemotherapy commonly used to treat cancer, which is used as an immunosuppressant in lupus patients.
Other celebrities who have been diagnosed with lupus include Nick Cannon, who told E! News he fights the accompanying fatigue by keeping busy, healthy and active. Toni Braxton has also battled lupus complications, while Lady Gaga told Larry King in 2010 she had "tested borderline positive for the disease."
Christmas came early for a lucky pizza deliveryman in Ohio.
In a video Jeff Louis shared on YouTube on Nov. 22, the Gionino's Pizzeria employee tearfully told viewers about his shocking encounter with some particularly generous customers who gave him a $700 tip. The 2:12 emotional video has since garnered over 1 million views.
In the brief clip, Jeff recalls delivering an order of pizzas to a church. Upon his arrival, he was asked to take one of the pizzas onstage to a pastor. Things took an even more surprising turn when members of the church handed Jeff the tip, leaving him in shock and visibly moved.
"This is truly amazing, you know, I've been having such a hard time lately," Jeff says in the video. "Just struggling to stay clean, trying to get my life back and it just really, truly amazes me that people that don't even know me just wanted to help me out that much."
SIGH. There's nothing like a super sweet random act of kindness to melt your heart and restore faith in humanity.
So, this is hella trippy. In all the years that One Direction have had group pics taken, there's one thing we never noticed - until one eagle eyed fan cracked it wide open.
If you look closely, in most photos of the group, you'll notice that Louis Tomlinson positions himself slightly in front of the other guys to appear taller.
Louis is totally faking his height with a little visual trickery - and has been getting away with it, too!
A fan on Tumblr shared her theory and it makes sense - Louis stands in such a way that his heels line up with the next guy's toes, so he's standing ever so slightly in front of them.
Now that the trick has been pointed out to us, we can't unsee it. Check out a random bunch of 1D group shots and notice he does it every single time.
And just for you non-believers - check it out: Louis Tomlinson is 5'8", while Harry Styles is 5'11", Liam Payne is 5'10" and Niall Horan is also 5' 8". Former bandmate Zayn Malik is 5'9".
All this time, everyone has been joking that Kim Kardashian is Kris Jenner's favorite daughter, but as it turns out, it's actually Kylie Jenner! At least for today...
The momager appeared on the Australian radio show, the Kyle and Jackie O Show, this morning and was asked which of her six children is her favorite. "I have a different favorite every day of the year! Today, it's Kylie Jenner." Well played, Kris!
"She really is such a great girl," she said about her fave daughter du jour. "We went out this morning and we were working together on her little business (her lip kits), we spent a lot of time together today."
Also on the show, she was asked how long she and her famous fam would keep doing the hugely popular Keeping Up With The Kardashians, to which she said, "It will just go on for as long as everyone's happy. As long as people love it, we like working on it and we're happy being transparent."
Hopefully that means we have at least another 20 seasons!
Your Starbucks latte might be just the thing to give you a little pick-me-up in the morning, but actually going to pick it up can be a bit of a hassle. Who wants to deal with long lines, cranky customers, and, you know, basic social interaction barely an hour after you woke up? Now you might not have to: Starbucks has started delivering, but before you get too excited, there's a downside.
Starbucks is testing out a delivery feature for residents of Seattle, Washington, which is made possible through the courier service Postmates. Seattle Starbucks addicts can place an order directly through their iOS Starbucks app, and a fresh cup of coffee could be at your desk or front door within 30 to 60 minutes.
Though an hour may seem like a long time to wait for your coffee (especially if you're a caffeine fiend) the service does cut a considerable amount of hassle for those of us not lucky to live or work walking distance from the coffee chain. Instead of spending 20 minutes driving to and waiting at the Starbucks, you could find a productive way to spend that time - like getting 20 more minutes of sleep.
The real downside of the Starbucks delivery service? The absolutely cray price. Place an order for delivery on the Starbucks app and you'll be slapped with a $5.99 fee, and that doesn't even include a tip for your delivery person.
Starbucks delivery may be great for when you're too sick to leave your house, but for that price you might as well schlep yourself to the nearest coffee shop in the AM - or, better yet, recruit your best friend to pick up a grande peppermint mocha when she's grabbing her daily Americano before class. Hey, that's what friends are for, right?
If you've ever worried about life at 30, or if you're in your 30s now, Lady Gaga is probably going to give you so many feels.
The songstress is turning 30 on March 28 next year, and has a totally uplifting perspective about the big birthday. "My birthday is in March, so these are the last moments of my 20s," Gaga told Billboard. "I already mourned that in a way, and now I'm really excited about showing girls, and even men, what it can mean to be a woman in her 30s."
"Why is it that we're disposing of people once they pass that mark? It's suddenly, 'You're an old woman," she continued. "I'm not f**king old. I'm more sexual and powerful and intelligent and on my sh*t than I've ever been. I've come a long way through a lot of heartache and pain, but none of it made me damaged goods. It made me a fighter. I want to show women they don't need to try to keep up with the 19-year-olds and the 21-year-olds in order to have a hit. Women in music, they feel like they need to f**king sell everything to be a star. It's so sad. I want to explode as I go into my 30s." Yasss Gaga!
And that wasn't all. She continued, "Once you start being mindful and really going, 'Do I actually want that?,' you start to feel empowered and you find your value. I love being the annoying girl. I was a theater kid. I was in jazz band. I went to the Renaissance Faire. I was that girl who got made fun of, that nerdy girl. I believe in that girl. I believe in the integrity, intelligence and power of people like her, and I want to ignite it."
Considering the transformation Gaga has made this year with the success of her album with Tony Bennett and her starring role on American Horror Story: Hotel, we have no doubt Mother Monster will only get better with time. We can't wait to see what she has in store for 2016.
Jenelle Evans has been through a lot of ups and downs over the past few years, but just recently, she got into a new relationship and she seems truly happy.
The reality star is used to rumors flying around about her and she frequently takes to Twitter to set the record straight, but this time, it was something she wrote on Twitter that got people wondering.
She's been working out like crazy lately and after an especially intense gym sesh, she tweeted, "Killed it at the gym today... Feeling great but feel like throwing up... Love it lmao." Immediately, people assumed that 'throwing up' meant pregnancy.
"Throwing up...Hmm...Pregant [sic] again?" one person replied. "No sweetheart, it's called a good workout. You should try it," she quipped.
Not weird...awesome, actually! We're so happy to see that Jenelle is doing so well.
If you're still mourning the loss of America's Next Top model, don't worry: you might see a lot more of Tyra Banks than you were expecting to. Even better? You'll see her as a real-life doll. No, the body-positive supermodel isn't starring in a Lifetime movie based on the life of the so-called "human Barbie" Valeria Lukyanova - though that would be weirdly amazing. Tyra will be reprising her role as Eve in the sequel to Disney Channel movie Life-Size, and it should make your inner child so excited.
The original Life-Size is about a girl named Casey (Lindsay Lohan) who accidentally brings her Barbie-esque doll Eve to life. The human Eve is glamorous, fashionable, and beautiful, but unfortunately doesn't have any real skills. Casey teaches Eve how to be a human, which sometimes means being less than "perfect" - she reminds Eve that sometimes it's okay if you break a nail, and that life lessons come from the mistakes you make. In return, Eve shows Casey how to be optimistic about life and feel confident in your own skin. Life-Size may be a movie about a living doll, but it also asks some serious questions about what it means to be a woman. Casey isn't into fashion or beauty (in fact, she's obsessed with football and is pretty damn good at it) but Eve is all about things that are considered ultra-feminine like makeup, clothes, and shopping. The movie never places a certain value on either characters' interests: neither Casey or Eve are put-down or shamed for liking what they like, and in the end, Eve and Casey are able to learn from the other without losing what makes them unique. It's pretty powerful stuff.
So when can we expect Life-Size 2 to air on Disney Channel? Tyra told Variety:
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like Lindsay will reprise her role in the movie. According to Tyra, they haven't talked about casting yet, but she did say that a "young person" will own Eve in the upcoming film. Considering LiLo isn't a tween actress anymore, I think she might be out - it would be so amazing for her to make a cameo as Casey.
I think it will be 2016... We're looking at it as a holiday movie so hopefully holiday 2016. One thing is it's a very precious project to the Disney Channel so they've been doing a lot of re-writes and making sure that this script is really right.
Kylie Jenner doesn't frequently respond to rumors and other nonsense floating around about her online, but after she posted a video of her dogs on Snapchat and people accused her of not taking care of them, she couldn't help herself.
In a new video posted on her website and app, entitled "K-9 Care," the 18-year-old showed that not only are her dogs being taken care of, they're being WELL cared for. In fact, their lives actually seem pretty awesome!
In addition to the fact that Kylie's dogs drink filtered water and eat organic food, she puts raw organic coconut oil in their food because "it makes their coat nice and keeps them healthy." She also walks them twice a day and prefers to wash them herself because "they're really easy to clean." Oh, and when she's traveling, there is always someone taking care of them, of course.
We didn't need any convincing from Kylie, though. First of all, Italian Greyhounds are naturally thin and a representative from the actual Italian Greyhound Club of America told TMZ that Kylie's dog looked just fine.
What's more, after people reported Kylie to the Los Angeles County Animal Control, they went to Kylie's house to check things out and the deputy director told the Huffington Post that "The breed is a lean breed of dog. Sometimes photos can be deceiving...People see slight ribs in a photo and think 'Oh my god,' but in this case, there's no neglect, and we're more than satisfied that the animal is being properly cared for."
So maybe NOW everyone can leave Kylie alone about her dogs...
Christmas came early for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West this year! The couple was expecting their son to arrive right around Christmas day and he ended up making his appearance a couple of weeks early, just like his little sister North did.
The proud mama shared the news on her website and app, in a post entitled "Kanye and I Welcome Our Baby Boy." On the post itself, it simply said, "Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well."
Ironically, Kim had just posted this pic of her baby bump last night, with the caption, "Ready whenever you are lol." Guess the little man got the memo!
Kim had been concerned about her delivery up until last week, as her son had been breech, but after a painful procedure to turn him, he was in the proper position and ready to go.

The baby's name has not yet been revealed.
Congrats to Kim, Kanye and big sister North!
