Even if you aren’t make up obsessed I am sure you haven’t been able to go a day on social media without seeing the beauty brand “Fenty” since it was launched. For everyone who has positioned themselves under a rock, Fenty is Rihanna’s new makeup line and I have to say personally, I am impressed. No, I have not used any of her products, but I am impressed in a whole different way.

I am a pale, white, redhead who has never had an issue finding her shade when it comes to makeup. Honestly, I just take the lightest foundation I can find and more times than not, it’s just about a perfect fit. I have never had an issue being able to find the makeup I need and to be totally honest, I didn’t realize anyone would have an issue. I have never thought outside of my world when it comes to makeup because I’ve thankfully never had an issue. Maybe that makes me ignorant or uneducated, but I am here to say thank you Fenty, because I am sure I am not the only one who needed to open their eyes.

So thank you Fenty beauty products. I am stunned to think that I have gone this long without realizing that some people are unable to find their shades of makeup. I have gone 21 years blinded to the fact that something I love so much such as makeup, could have had this insane diversity I’ve never noticed. So thank you Fenty, for opening my eyes to this issue.

My mind is still blown that on her first launch Rihanna released 40 different shades of foundation! Too many celebrities just slap their name on a makeup formula and sadly it sells because fame sells. Too many fans spend money on makeup products that are not worth the price tag just because of the name attached. So the fact a celebrity who could have just slapped her name on a bottle and made so much money took the time to grow and make her line different, makes me so happy.

The makeup community needed something like this. The makeup community needed something to open their eyes. The makeup community needed a solution to a problem that does not get enough attention.

So thank you Fenty and thank you Rihanna for opening my eyes to an issue I have never recognized before.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.

On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
