    Organizing Your First Tour-De-Friends

    Life has gotten so busy that it has become harder than ever to actually hang with your “crew,” which is a total farce. We all need bonding time with our friends or we’ll go so insane; our brains could literally start to melt and then drip out of our ears. And I’m not just talking about grabbing some after-work drinks because, when it comes to some meaningful bonding, that just won’t cut it. The only way you can really, truly connect with your mates is to go on a tour-de-friends. Yup, I’m talking about hitting the road. Of course, there’s probably a part of you that is thinking: bachelor party.…

    Dan + Shay Taste Tequila With New Single

    DAN + SHAY RELEASE “TEQUILA,” THE FIRST SINGLE FROM THE DUO’S THIRD ALBUM, OUT LATER THIS YEAR. Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) released their brand new single on Wednesday. “Tequila,” the duo’s first offering in nearly a year, was co-written by Smyers alongside Jordan Reynolds and Nicolle Galyon. The track is not the typical late-night drinking anthem that the title might allude to, but instead is a heartbreaking tale of love lost and deep regret. Something often felt after a long night with a bottle of tequila. The breakout duo are amping up the momentum from an exceptional 2017, which saw them amass more than 230 million streams,…

    Taylor Swift Breaks Free on ‘Reputation’

    TAYLOR SWIFT SWINGS THE DOOR OPEN ON ‘REPUTATION,’ REVEALING HERSELF TO FANS FOR THE FIRST TIME. It was five years ago when I met Taylor Swift for the first time.

While grabbing a mixed drink cocktail from the bar, I ran into a friend. One who had been spending the evening with Taylor and her friends, and who later led me “behind the curtain,” through a sea of people to the entry of a room that held the secrets of an early Taylor Swift reputation.…

    Getting Your Sparkle Back With These Simple Steps

    Listen, sometimes in life — with work, education, and family noise — we can lose a little bit of our spark. It’s small things that you might not notice at first. One morning you don’t manage to fit in your normal routine, or you find yourself slinging on the same outfit day after day. You might even find that when once you would wear bright colors and bold prints, that your confidence to do such things has lessened somehow. It can happen to anyone, at any point. Life sometimes has a way of getting in the way. If we are going to be real about it, it has happened to…
