A few years ago, my career suffered two brutal blows. A job that I once called a dream turned ugly and abusive, and the one that followed blew up in my face. After my parents' divorce, it was the most severe trauma I had endured, and it left me mentally bruised and battered, a fragment of the person I once was. I grew up amongst the ambitious and the driven, where the importance of a career was rammed down my throat from teachers, parents, and...
There's no denying that studs are a huge trend right now. (I ain't complainin'!)

The gruesome details include: Free-roaming and flea-infested cats, complete with feces and urine Dirty and blood-soaked furniture Un-sanitized instruments and...
It was back in 2004 that Dove first launched its Real Beauty Campaign aimed at changing society's accepted standards of beauty. Dove's models have realistic proportions, showcasing how beautiful women of all shapes and sizes are. You might remember one ad in particular that accentuated the unrealistic and even unhealthy sizes of Victoria's Secret models in comparison to Dove's. Now Dove has released their Real Beauty Sketches project, in which an FBI-trained sketch artist was asked to sketch women’s faces based solely on their own descriptions....
