Facebook’s days are numbered because (shocker!) it’s mostly moms using it
It’s like the Myspace of yesteryear
“Facebook will never go out of style,” we all collectively thought in 2007.
And for a long time, it didn’t. We were slightly less addicted, but that’s because we’d allowed our addictions to manifest elsewhere — alcohol, Tinder — but we still used Facebook.

If they want to keep people coming to them, they’re going to need to re-brand. But maybe that’s why they acquired Instagram in the first place.
The fuckboy haircut: An evolutionary timeline through history
Fuckboy hair in every decade
by Allison Sadlier
Fuckboys come in all shapes and sizes…and haircuts. You can totally spot one from a mile away by his faded hairstyle. You know, the guy who has the sides shaved and his hair longer on top. As it turns out, the fuckboy haircut is nothing new. It’s just changed throughout history. So we’ve created the…
‘Bonespiration’ isn’t new, but it’s still pretty damn bad

Eyebrow waxing is a scam, sorry!
Somebody has to say it
by Katie Way
Maintaining your eyebrows is a labor of love akin to keeping an orchid alive or baking a soufflé.
