// The women the abortion war leaves out.

// 600 men stand in for absent fathers at Texas school's Breakfast with Dads event after faculty asked for just 50 volunteers. Y'all just reading the title of the article still makes me cry. This is so amazing.

// Good people don't defend a bad man.

// I went on a date with Aziz Ansari. I turned into the worst night of my life.

// Norway reaching out to Americans looking for an alternative to Trump's madness.

// What I want to say to all of the well-meaning motherhood advice givers.

// Photographer reveals the "addicted" side of the streets of Philadelphia, and it's terrifying. Heartbreaking is the more appropriate word, in my opinion. These are our neighbors. They could be our friends or family. Oftentimes humanity is left out of the depiction of addiction.

// I know it's a little early to be thinking swimwear, but I am so into PatBo's drop.

// I made the pizza cinnamon rolls from Mario Batali's sexual misconduct apology letter.

// Help Puerto Rico get life back to normal.

// The lefty critique of #TimesUp is tired and self-defeating.

// Lookbooks I'm Loving: Rainbow Brights. Flower Power. Costarellos.

// It's so cold in North America that Niagra Falls is frozen, and it looks like something out of Narnia. These photos are truly stunning.

// Wishlist Wears:  this green military coat // this striped jumpsuit (that plunge!) // this ruffle blouse // this ombre sequin dress OHMYWORD! // this letter pendant necklace // this green velvet trucker jacket (!!!) // these velvet joggers // this lavender coat // this pink faux fur coat // this slouchy cable knit cardigan // THIS CAPE! // this striped mini dress (just not that price tag) // this blush tulle gown // these high waist, wide leg jeans

// Male sex robots with bionic penises could be here to make us all feel inadequate. Because 2018?

// Cat bonded with horse and they explore places together almost every day.

// OkCupid redefines 'DTF' in striking ads that are like little works of art. I love these SO MUCH! They're so nice to look at, and seeing them all together is so neat.

// I started a Facebook group for DEALS, so join it if you're into that kind of thing.

// If you're a blogger looking for new brands to partner with on sponsored content, check out the latest gigs available over at Fresh Press Media. I'm a really big fan of FPM and can't recommend the platform enough. My favorite aspect is that there isn't a net-30 or -60 payout period. You do the work, submit the content, and then get paid. Just. like. that! (Apparently I've said this before because I'm totally quoted on the marketplace page haha! It really is one of the biggest things that sets FPM apart from other agencies. No invoicing and no chasing payments or trying to schedule when it'll hit your account. It's almost instantaneous.) Browse these campaigns and see if they're right for you - if so, submit a bid (you get to choose your rate!) and wait for a response.

// Love this DIY ornament wreath. Perfect last minute decoration for any holiday hosting.

// Chalk paint to the rescue! Love the look of this updated dining table.

// If you're super last minute in need of a nice gift, these are still some options for Christmas delivery. Here are some crafty kid kits, maternity basics, and new baby essentials.
