There are lots of things to love about the summer months, but the extra heat, humidity and sunshine can really wreck havoc on your beauty routine.
In the age of smartphones and fitness trackers, we always have the time on hand. But that doesn't mean the regular old wristwatch has gone out of style -- far from it! For the modern man or woman, a nice wrist watch can be a fashionable accessory, a symbol of status, and a classy way to check the time while with polite company. After all, your boss your date, or your mom probably won't notice you glancing at your wrist, but you better believe she'll notice if you pick up your phone!
If you're a teenager or the parent of a teenager, you're well aware that it's prom season.
We all come to this crossroads eventually: Should we save money in the moment by spending less upfront on an item we'll probably have to replace, or invest in something that will stand the test of time?

UGH! What's a girl to do when those basic boots are financially out of reach? The struggle is real. If you've ever stepped your foot inside the heavenly cloud of plush shearling lining, then you know that UGGs are a winter essential, even if you don't think they're cute. But these cozy shoe/slipper hybrids are notoriously expensive, and the classic styles and colors almost never go on sale.
I haven't always been short. When I was in fifth grade I was one of the tallest kids in my class. Not just one of the tallest girls, one of the tallest out of everyone. When we were teenagers, my little brother used to pound on his chest and ask, "Who am I? I am Courtney in fifth grade!" I was really small when I was a tot, then grew a lot in middle school, then I just stopped.
