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.

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.

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!

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 […]

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 […]

XoXo: Gwyneth’s Goop-tastic Coffee Enema

Let’s do a new segment entitled, “Weird Shit Gwyneth Paltrow Sold Me.” It’s a pretty widely accepted fact that Gwyneth and her lifestyle brand “Goop” have set out on a mission to enrich your life with their most bizarre, expensive and grossly unnecessary must-have items.

It’s 2018 and Ryan Reynolds is doing the most to continue his reign as King of Twitter. With 9.3 million followers, Mr. Reynolds can only be bothered with the most pressing of issues such as the Great Chris Debate. Of course, I’m talking about who is hotter.
