LOVE: Simple, clean manicures





After getting engaged (and yes, I can't stop talking about it), the first thing I did after I called my parents was to make sure my nails were clean. Without warning, people will grab your hand to look at your ring. Clean, simple manicures in light pink are classic.


LOATHE: Pointed nails

MTV (both)


WHAT. THE. FUCK. ARE. THESE???? How do you wipe your butt without injury? How do you type an email? How do you make it through airport security?




Daily of the Day


I am jumping on the Harem Pant Train. Here we have Justin Beiber. Poor Wittle Boy poopied in his pants.
