If this is your first holiday hosting a guest, you may feel overwhelmed at the thought of preparing your studio apartment or small condo for a visitor. Whether it's your mom or sister or best gal pal from college—we're giving you the lowdown on all the quick and easy things you can do to officially become the hostess with the mostest on your very first try.
You've seen bathleisure (a combination of "bath" and "athleisure") all over Instagram, beginning with the South Korean singer CL wearing a bathrobe gown to the CFDA awards earlier in November (gasp). Soon after, Rita Ora walked the MTV Europe Music Awards red carpet in nothing more than a terry cloth robe, hair towel, and a few lavish accessories, making it A-okay for you to strut around in your favorite housecoat. But it wasn't until Rihanna showed up on the cover of Vogue Paris, dressed to the nines with an Emilio Pucci towel on her head (yes, a towel!), that we began to rethink our bathleisure reservations. If Rihanna is doing it, obviously it's fashion, right? We already sit around our apartments in a robe and towel post-shower, and now it's in style. Just slap on a few standout accessories and make sure to snap a pic for all your followers.

This new Instagram account is combining two of our favorite things for one great reason.
Do you find yourself jumping from one monogamous relationship to the next, with little to no gap in between? When was the last time you were single for more than a month or two? Serial monogamy is becoming more and more common--and we want to know why.
Most people know that some things, like emoticons or slang, are not acceptable in business emails, but few people give thought to their salutations. However, the way you open and close a message can say just as much to the reader as the email itself.
Yes. Instagram is changing some things, but you do NOT need to turn on all of those notifications. Here's what you need to know about the big changes coming to Instagram.
Most people know the bedbug basics: they emerge at night to feast on human blood, and they're darn near impossible to kill. But there are many surprising--and shocking--things about bedbugs that you probably haven't heard.
We live in a time when women are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, a woman is running for the highest office in the land, and young women know they can accomplish the same things professionally as their male classmates. Heck yes!
There's no rule book when it comes to sex--as long as it's consensual and you feel comfortable, that's all that matters. But your first time can be nerve-wracking as HELL. How bad does it hurt? Will it be a life-altering experience? How do you know which hole to put it in?!? Here are 13 things I wish I had known before I lost my virginity, wrapped up and tied with a bow for your educational pleasure.
They're back! Sit-at-the-bellybutton shorts, pants, and skirts are back in style, but just how do best wear high-waisted styles? We styled five of our favorite pairs of this season's shorts so you'll know how to wear this cute spring trend.
Your favorite piece of anatomy acts up every now and then, but do you know what to do when things don't seem normal? We consulted the experts to get the ultimate lowdown.
Celebrities often dabble in a side project or two. Talk show hosts become entrepreneurs, singers become models, but when actors try to become singers--well, things can get ugly. These failed celebrity music careers prove it.
Many people think of soul mates as two people who find each other and know immediately that they're destined to spend their lives together in ecstatic harmony. Others consider the idea about as credible as crystal healing, love potions, or the tooth fairy. While the notion of soul mates sounds like a good one, does it color how we view relationships and marriage and set us all up for failure?
If you like makeup, cute kids, or some combination of the two, you've got to see this. These talented tots are still learning how to read, but they certainly know how to understand makeup labels.
Sometimes the success or failure rates of relationships seem as prone to chance as the flip of a coin. Why is it, for example, that a vegan fitness freak can happily couple up with a couch potato and two people who like all of the same bands hate everything else about each other? What dictates satisfaction in a relationship? It seems like levels of attraction, personality matching, and similar goals all play a role, but in the end, even these things aren’t always enough. Is birth order something than can affect romantic compatibility?
