Desperately missing Big Little Lies? You’re not the only one.
Though the limited series ended less than a week ago, producer and star Reese Witherspoon seems ready to relive the thrills.
The 41-year-old multi-hyphenate took to Instagram on Thursday to post a sweet throwback photo of the HBO series’ actors posing between takes, smiling as a group in the finale’s Audrey Hepburn-inspired ensembles.
On Friday, the Canadian province of British Columbia won a major battle in fighting sexism in the workplace. In a news release, the government of British Columbia put a ban on mandatory high heels for women at work.
“In some workplaces in our province, women are required to wear high heels on the job. Like most British Columbians, our government thinks this is wrong. That is why we’re changing this regulation to stop this unsafe and discriminatory practice and adding an enforcement element by WorkSafeBC,” Premier Christy Clark said.

“The requirement to wear high heels in some workplaces is a workplace health and safety issue. There is a risk of physical injury from slipping or falling, as well as possible damage to the feet, legs, and back from prolonged wearing of high heels while at work,” the statement read.
Now, women can wear whatever footwear they want to work, without being forced to shove their feet into an uncomfortable pair of heels by their boss.
After almost three years, Meghan Markle is saying goodbye to her “passion project.” The Suits star and Prince Harry’s girlfriend is shutting down her lifestyle site, The Tig, she announced with a message on the homepage.
“After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig. What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You’ve made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much job,” she wrote.
“Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being ‘the change you wish to see in the world.’ Above all, don’t ever forget your worth—as I’ve told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough.”
Considering Markle films Suits in Toronto and commutes back and forth to see her long-distance boyfriend, Prince Harry, in London, it makes sense that she doesn’t have a lot of free time. But we can’t help but wonder if somehow her romance with a royal is behind this sudden shutdown. Could the palace be tying up loose ends before the announcement of an engagement?
Just in case you didn’t already rank Chris Evans amongst the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood, we have news for you: he really, really loves his mom.
On Late Night with Seth Meyers Thursday, the Captain America star admitted that he was a bit of a crybaby in his youth. “I cried a lot, I really did. I cried first day of school; I cried first day of camp.” (And it was day camp!)
Spending time away from the fam was difficult for lil’ Chris, who has always felt a strong bond with his parents.
“My whole family, we’re very open about a lot of things,” Evans told the Late Night host. “They felt like friends,” he said of his mom and dad.
Like a true friend, Evans told his mom (whom he calls “a really cool woman”) when he lost his virginity. “I raced home and I said, ‘I did it! I don’t know what I was doing, but I think I did it!’” he shared.
“‘And I didn’t cry!'” Meyers added in jest.
“Oh, no. I cried. I didn’t say that,” Evans clarified.
You know how you tell yourself “Instagram lives aren’t real” over and over until you fall asleep every night (just me?)—well, it turns out that some of them are.
Jack Morris, 26, and his girlfriend, Lauren Bullen, 24, are living their absolute best life, on social media and IRL. The couple of more than a year spends their days traveling the world, photographing it, and getting paid a substantial chunk of change to upload it to Instagram.
Before they met, both Jack and Lauren operated their own personal Instagram pages, as they do now, but it wasn’t until they joined forces that their accounts really took off.
With nearly three-and-a-half million followers between them, the pair receives anything from $3,000 to $9,000 for a SINGLE POST.
Pretty sweet gig, but even sweeter is their commitment to authenticity. “Everything that we take and put on Instagram is real life,” Morris told Cosmopolitan U.K., “We would never promote something we don’t agree with just for money.”
Leave it to Khloé K. to pair a sexy lace bodysuit and a pair of sweats, and look like she just walked off a runway.
The 32-year-old reality star and Good American designer stepped out in Calabasas, Calif., on Wednesday wearing a Gooseberry bodysuit, black sweatpants, a simple hoodie, and a pair of Givenchy logo slides ($295; shop.nordstrom.com). With an ensemble like that, we’re not sure whether Khloé was gearing up to hit the gym or the club.
With her long blonde locks cascading over both shoulders and her skin glowing in the California sun, the youngest Kardashian sis looks photoshoot ready. Regardless of her intent, we’re in awe of this unconventional sartorial concoction.
Let’s get real: If we saw Kate Middleton wearing army pants and flip flops, there’s a strong chance we’d buy army pants and flip flops. That’s just the nature of the great Kate Middleton Effect, and boy, is it alive and well.
Take this fashion-savvy blogger for example: Kate Urbanksa of Berkshire, England has made it her sartorial mission to “replikate” the Duchess of Cambridge’s looks with much success—and at a fraction of the price, might we add! The 29-year-old beautician’s M.O. includes scouring eBay and working with a tailor to recreate her fashion icon’s looks.
If you have curly hair and regularly turn to heat tools in attempt to straighten your ringlets, Nicole Kidman has some advice for you.
In an interview with Australia’s WHO Magazine, the Big Little Lies actress who’s known for her long, smooth, strawberry blonde hair, shared that she wishes she never tried to alter her natural curly texture. “I really wanted to have that suntanned skin and long blonde hair,” she said. “I wanted to conform and be the Aussie beach girl. And I was never going to be that.”
After years of over-styling her ringlets, the actress explains that her hair isn’t quite the same as it used to be. “I wish I had my curls back,” she said. “I tortured them to death. I always say, ‘Don’t ruin the ringlets!'” If there were ever a better argument for air-drying your hair, Kidman’s experience with her own strands is it.

The British royals want you to know it’s OK to say you’re not OK. Last week, Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Harrylaunched a film series in collaboration with Heads Together called #oktosay, which features people speaking about the life-changing conversation that helped them cope with their mental health issues.
Two new videos, launched Wednesday, feature two real-life individuals being honest and open about their struggles in hopes of reducing the stigma around mental health. In one short film, professional soccer player Rio Ferdinand speaks about finally opening up to his friend about his emotions, months after losing his wife to breast cancer.
In another, Katharine speaks to her mother Caroline Welby about living with depression and anxiety for 10 years as a police officer, and how finally telling her mom about her mental illness helped her begin to recover.
“We have seen time and time again that shattering stigma on mental health starts with simple conversations,” the royals said in a joint release when launching the film series. “When you realize that mental health problems affect your friends, neighbors, children, and spouses, the walls of judgment and prejudice around these issues begin to fall. And we all know that you cannot resolve a mental health issue by staying silent.”
It all started when Sarah Fader, a 37-year-old New Yorker who founded the mental health nonprofit Stigma Fighters, tweeted about the anxiety of waiting for someone’s text message response (which is something we can all relate to). She added on #WhatAnxietyFeelsLike, and it’s blown up from there.
It’s so refreshing to see people open up, because it makes other people who suffer from anxiety more likely to talk about their own experiences.
Fader is a mother of two who has been dealing with anxiety since she was 15 years old. She encouraged all of her followers to use #WhatAnxietyFeelsLike in an attempt to reduce the taboo around mental illnesses like anxiety.
Considering 18 percent of the American population suffers from anxiety, these small gestures of solidarity go a long way. No hashtag will ever cure us of our mental illness, but seeing that there are others out there who go through a lot of the same emotions and encounters makes us feel a hell of a lot less alone. And that’s something worth celebrating
If you struggle with anxiety, join in and use the hashtag #WhatAnxietyFeelsLike!
