Hello friends,

How has life been treating you lately? I, personally, was just cured of my constant ennui this morning when I awoke to sun peeking through the cracks in my shades. Today has been the first actually real warm day since August. I am crying of joy, but also sadness because I know it will only last for this day alone. (Okay, yesterday was nice as well, but the wind cooled it down a tad. So, yes, just today is perfection.)

Okay, sorry for the tangent. I was not even asked how my own day has been.

Yesterday, I was watching my one Gilmore Girls episode for the day and I realized that I have never written an article solely on my hatred for one Dean Forester. That is odious! Despicable! Heinous!

All words that happen to describe Dean, as well.

From the start, Dean's true colors are hidden behind what some, naive folks may call charm. He is introduced as the classic nice guy, the reliable one, the caring one, the charming one that parents "like." My least favorite kind. But the right people know, that is only a facade. Dean is really a manipulative, controlling, unreasonable, immature, temperamental, sorry excuse for a human being. The only good thing about him is that he is so easy to make fun of.

First episode of Dean, after he references a movie, instead of the book that it's based on (classic mistake, Dean-o), Dean composes a winner of a pick-up line, "I've been watching you." What is that? It makes him sound creepy, and how he leans in with his hands in his pockets as he says it just makes it worse. I would've made a run for Luke's right then and there, that is, if I hadn't already.

That is Dean at his best, can you imagine? As we move on, through Season One, we see Dean voice his opinions on women. He is so naive it kills me. He thinks that all women should be like Donna Reed and wait on their husbands hand and foot. To top it off, he never realizes what the issue is with that statement! Nothing. No issue. Oh yeah, women shouldn't have lives. No, Dean should not have a life.

We also see Dean BREAK UP with Rory after she is not ready to say "I love you" after three months. It has only been ninety days. What's the rush? Rory did nothing wrong. She was not ready. In no way does the fact that Dean is building Rory a car make up for that.

But then, of course, Rory has to go and say "I love you" as P.J. Harvey's "One Line" (greatest song, right?) plays in the background. But why did they have to go and get back together? It would've been easier and better on the world if they just split for good. But nope, they insist on getting back together and this is when Dean gets even worse. Can you even imagine?

Season Two starts them off with Dean being even more controlling than Season One. He starts making Rory feel bad about wanting to do well in school and go to Harvard (you know, her dreams and all). Do you recall the fight by the gazebo? Who is that? Who does that? Yeah, be disappointed that Rory can't hang out that day, but that is no reason to practically kick a duffel bag.

This brings me to when he actually kicks a duffel bag. Okay, there are a lot of moments in between this that I should be mentioning, like when he calls thirty times in one day and such, but I do not have the time to draw attention to every time that Dean does something disgraceful because that I would require me to write approximately 5,730 pages (and let's be honest, that's probably low balling it). So, yes, back to the kicking the duffel bag fiasco. Accidents occur. Things occur. To anyone and everyone. Even to the safest of drivers. Yes, I understand that Dean hates Jess and that he is hurt that the car that he worked tirelessly on to build has been destroyed, but nope. I don't care. The world does not revolve around you, Dean. Rory could've been really hurt. She could've died! Dean is so logical.

But no matter how much I wished for it to happen, they stay together, that is until the greatest episode, "They Shoot Gilmores Don't They?," the turning point. However, Dean chooses to break up with Rory in the worst possible way: in front of everyone, screaming. So classic. I legit just chuckled to myself.

You guessed it though, they get back together! I just said that in my mind like the people reading this haven't even watched Gilmore Girls before. I don't understand myself at times. But they do not just get back together in a normal, actually thoughtful way. No. That is not Dean. He cheats on his wife with Rory. Not the greatest decision on Rory's part either, but Dean starts it. He leads her on when he should've just broken up with Lindsay. HE MARRIED HER WHEN HE WAS STILL IN LOVE WITH RORY. Do you recall the night before his wedding when he's drunk and says her name to Luke? I do. I remember it ALL. And not just because I've seen the series at least seventeen times, because I just hate Dean that much.

At least this time they are only together for eight episodes, until he breaks up with her again in front of another big group of people. What is that? My apologies, I've said that phrase way too many times in this one article, but I don't care, it applies.

Dean is horrifying. He is everything I hate in the world wrapped up into one, towering over, big-headed, floppy-haired, satanic creature. He deserves nothing but the worst in life.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.
