This week, on Dancing With the Stars, contestants were challenged to choose the most meaningful year of their lives and create a dance that reflected their experiences. Bindi Irwin, daughter of the beloved Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, chose 2006, the year her dad passed away.
It was, understandably, a very emotional week for the now 17-year-old Bindi, and the most candid she’s been about her dad’s death yet. She goes on to deliver a flawless dance to Every Breath … Keep Reading!!!

Kim Kardashian is pregnant with her second child, and from her recent comments regarding her pregnancy, she is definitely not feeling particularly glow-y in her current condition.
“I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL!” The reality star wrote on October 5th. “I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it.”
The three-year-old’s grandmother, Susan Hardy, is also speaking out and tells Atlanta Blackstar that while a lot of people were supportive, the two have also received a lot of hatred.

Courtney Demone is a beautiful woman. She exudes confidence. She is proud of her body. And now she has started posting shirtless photos on social media as part of the #FreeTheNipple movement. What makes her photos different from so many other women who do the same, and what makes them acceptable to the social media censors, is that Courtney was born in a male body. She is transgender.
Courtney has just started undergoing hormone replacement therapy which is, in part, … Keep Reading!!!
Packing shoes is the worst.
No… it’s even worse than the worst. It’s godawful.
On many a trip, I have gone over my allotted 50 lbs of luggage just on shoes alone. It wasn’t until I had a breaking point somewhere on a cobbled street in Nazareth, Israel. This when I realized that this oversized load I was dragging through these historic corridors was not only unnecessary, it was making my entire experience less enjoyable. And it was on my … Keep Reading!!!
It doesn’t matter how famous you are, you can’t escape the exhaustion of parenting. This week, Macklemore posted this photo of him napping with his 4-month-old daughter, Sloane Ava Simone. It has caused a stir on his Instagram account as the co-sleeping debate rages, but none-the-less the rapper gushes about fatherhood stating “There is nothing better”.
You can’t blame the man, look at that face! She is one of the cutest celebrity babies I’ve ever seen. Absolutely beautiful.

We spent most of the month of May in Hawaii with friends. On one of our last days, the majority of our group went to Soul Signature where I received my hand tapped tattoo.
I decided to join in when I met Aisea, the owner of the shop who also specializes in hand tapping.
Brian ended up getting a large machine-created tattoo by Eugene:
