Life Lessons With B. Waldorf And B. Davis

B. Waldorf and B. Davis may be TV's most fabulous characters. These girls have everything a girl could want, and more. Even though they are really different, they both taught us a lot about how to succeed in life.

1. Have Confidence.

Confidence is key. It may have taken them some time to figure out who they truly were, but once they did, they were confident in themselves. Confidence is beautiful, which is what makes B and B true beauties.

2. Wear Great Clothes.

They have the best clothes. These two were style icons. Blair had her head bands and classic style, and Brooke with her modern and trendy looks. Both girls love clothes and fashion, and inspired the rest of us to look our best all the time.

3. Be Independent.

They are both fiercely independent. Even though they don’t do everything on their own, they could. They know what they want, and what they have to do to get it. They didn’t let the boys in their life determine their happiness or who they were.

4. Have Strength.

They are so strong. They never let anything life threw at them get in their way. Life wasn’t kind to either of them and they had to rise to the occasion. Whether it be growing up with absent parents, people betraying them, friends leaving them, failures or tragedies, they never gave up. They accomplished all they wanted to with grace, and their strength is to be admired.

5. Follow Your Heart.

Both had big dreams that they pursued. Blair and Brooke never stopped doing what they wanted. They were so passionate about what they loved in life, and they never let anything stop them. They followed their hearts even when it didn't make sense. Seeing them accomplish their goals inspired all of us to accomplish what we wanted in life.

6. Don't Settle.

Both girls had the opportunity to settle and never did. They didn't settle with boys, friends, careers, life goals -- nothing. They taught us all that what we want in life is worth waiting for and fighting for.

7. Be Yourself.

They taught us that we are perfect just the way we are. They grew and learned a lot, but they never changed who they truly were. Everyone loved these girls for being who they were. They showed us that our friends and family will love us despite our flaws and failures.

8. Know Your Worth.

They knew what they were worth and didn't let anyone treat them less than what they deserved. They made us all rethink the way we were letting people treat us.

9. Forgive.

They taught us to forgive. No matter what people had done to them, they found it in their hearts to forgive and move on. They didn’t live with bitterness and they didn't let it consume them. In the end, their friendships were more important than whatever was going on, which helped all of us see the good in people.

10. Love With Your Whole Heart.

They loved, everyone. They never gave up on the people they loved. They found new ways to love people. They showed kindness, compassion, and grace, and they made a lot of sacrifices for their friends. Because of their love, they brought people together.

11. Be A Good Friend.

They were always there for their friends. No matter what time it was, if they were busy, or if they had their own problems, they never let down their friends. They knew the value of being a good friend, and in the end, it helped them keep their friends around. They taught us all about loyalty.

It may have taken some time, but in the end they learned life was more than high school cheerleading and yogurt on the Met steps. And thankfully, their transformations inspired us all to be a better version of ourselves.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"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.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

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.

Dear Grandma,

I wish my words could adequately explain how much I miss seeing your smile and hearing your laugh. You were such a bright ray of sunshine in my life and now that you're gone, I can't help but remember all the times we had together.

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.

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.
