I’ve been in kind of a rut recently, and it’s making me reconsider a lot of fundamental things about my life. Am I ever going to have a job that’s fulfilling and pays well? Is my situationship headed anywhere, or should I ghost and re-download Bumble as soon as possible?
And, most importantly of all… should I get bangs?
It's a transitional time of year. Summer's fading haze and fall’s inevitable approach are obvious immediately upon stepping outside.
As the trees turn gold and orange and begin to shed their leaves, the weather around me crisps and crystallizes into brisk, blue fall, and I find myself turning inwards and asking the questions that keep me up at night: do you think I could rock bangs?
I used to think girls were super nice to each other in bar washrooms until my friend came back from one thinking she should get bangs

I’m just like, kind of worried because I’ve never really been able to pin down my face shape, you know what I mean? Sometimes I’m 100 percent sure that it’s heart-shaped, but other days I feel like I hover in circle territory, which definitely changes things.
And then I have to decide what kind of bangs I even want. I kind of like those little art hoe bangs, but I don’t want everyone to think I’m getting bangs just because I moved to Brooklyn. Yeah, Bushwick. I do love it, thank you for asking! I’m a little bit nervous about side swept bangs now that the side-braid isn’t really in anymore, and that’s where I feel like the side swept bangs really shine.
Blunt bangs strike me as very manic-pixie-Zooey-Deschanel. Or too fashion-girl, like Alexa Chung. Are people even referencing her as a Bangs Icon anymore? Ugh, it’s just been so long since I last considered getting bangs.
A haircut shouldn’t even be that big of a deal. If I get bangs and don’t like them, all I have to do is wait it out and they’ll go away. Hair grows! Surveying everyone I know about whether or not I should get bangs is like asking people if I should cut my fingernails!
I’m starting to wonder if I’m zeroing in on this bangs issue in order to avoid dealing with… bigger issues. Getting bangs won’t magically solve all of my problems. It won’t solve any of my problems, because my forehead stopped breaking out after I went on birth control and that’s basically the only concern I had that bangs could really alleviate.
But seriously, should I take the plunge? I kinda think they’d look cute. Do you think they’d look cute?
Why am I still scared of Hot Topic as an adult?

Call me local, but I love a good mall. There's nothing like rolling up at your local Southridge or Highpoint or Sunset Center or whatever on a mission for a little black dress and completely crushing it. Or going to the mall to waste hours floating between Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom and H&M. Actual paradise…
This is how much it costs to be Gigi Hadid
Living her life is not cheap
by Ari Bines
Whether you know her as the face of Maybelline or her occasional cultural appropriation, Gigi Hadid is one woman who practically owns the runway. She's the fifth highest-paid supermodel in the world, which means she gets a lot of free shit to post to her 40 million followers, but she still coughs up a lot…

Which plastic are you?

When you're bored and have a fuckton of bread in your bank account, what else is there to do than to fix what your mama couldn't give you? Celebrities love to deny that they've ever had some work done, but it's pretty peculiar how some people can have a year's worth of glow-up in a…
