XoXo: “I stuck my finger right in its eye…”

The award for making my Monday a little brighter goes to a 29 year-old Maine man named Dustin Gray, who fought off a bear to save the life of his furry friend. Gray and his 11 month-old pup Clover, pictured above, had pulled over to the side of the road and walked about 50 ft. […]

XoXo: A Florida Man…

Man, oh man. Nothing puts me in a better mood for the weekend than a fabulously ridiculous Florida crime story. This tale comes from Orlando, where a woman walked into the community gym of her apartment building only to find a fellow tenant named Kerry Haynes riding one of the exercise bikes…fully nude. When asked […]

XoXo: Tom + Leo = Forever

Sorry Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, there is a new adorable celebrity friendship in town. It’s been two years since Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy co-starred in the Oscar dominating film “The Revenant,” and last week Tom finally solidified their bond from the film by putting Leo’s name in permanent ink on his arm. Yes, […]

XoXo: Swat it like it’s hot…

It might be cold in Florida for now, but we all too well that sweltering summer heat is not far away. In fact, it might even sound like a welcome switch at this point. However, along with the warmth comes… These bastards. Mosquitoes. Good news though! A new study published in the journal Current Biology […]

XoXo: Home, Home on the Range…

January 2018 marks the beginning of a new adventure for me! I am learning to properly and (most importantly) safely operate a gun! For context, you should know that up until last month I had never even touched a gun in my life. To be perfectly honest, they have always made me feel uncomfortable and […]

XoXo: Once Upon a Tinder…

Oh, romance in the year 2018. This Tinder tale begins as a guy, who we know as Hayden, was indulging in some carefree swiping and accidentally swiped Left (if you don’t Tinder, Left is a big NO), even though he totally wanted to swipe Right! Luckily, he remembered that in the girl’s profile, her name […]

XoXo: Justin Timberlake has a lot of…”Supplies.”

Justin Timberlake released the second single off his album “Man of the Woods” this week and I am…a little confused. In a preview for his next album, Timberlake described the kind of maturity we could expect from him musically now that he is happily married and has a young son. Then, he released his first […]

XoXo: What Exactly is the ‘End Game?’

I’d like to personally blame whoever circulated the false story that Katy Perry was making a cameo in this music video for my current sleep deprived state (midnight is way past this girl’s bedtime) and also the general sense of resentment I felt watching this and realizing those rumors were in fact #fakenews. There is […]

XoXo: Do you spank? Kelly Clarkson says “Yes.”

It’s become something of a controversial parenting topic in recent years. To spank or not to spank your kids…that is the question. The OG American Idol and general music goddess recently weighed in on her parenting techniques that not everyone is a fan of. “I’m not above a spanking, which people aren’t necessarily into,” she […]

XoXo: In Case You Missed It…

I’ll be honest, I didn’t want this year’s Golden Globe Awards. It’s almost shameful since I consider myself something of an awards show enthusiast. But the tension and outpouring of protests in Hollywood building up over the past few months led me to believe that politics would dominate the evening as opposed to honoring all […]
