Bustle's Editors On Kendrick Lamar + The AHCA

Happy Friday, fam! Has this been a week, or has this been a WEEK?! Today alone has been a doozy.

So, without further adieu, here's what Bustle's editors were talking about today, March 24: AHCA + Paul Ryan After an initial delay, House Republicans killed the American Health Care Act before it could be voted on …

Bustle's Editors On *That* Chicken & The Electronics Ban

Happy Tuesday! I can totally tell that you're already kicking this week's butt. And if not? Well, it's *basically* the middle of the week already (well, almost), so you've only got a few more days to go. Hang in there! Here's what Bustle's editors were talking about today, March 21. The U.S. + Another Ban The United States has banned electronics larger than cellphones from being carried onto flights from specific countries. The ban, which will be implemented over the next 96 hours, affects 10 ai…

Bustle's Editors On 'Bach' + #ReflectAndResist

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Did you know that corned beef and cabbage isn't actually a traditional Irish dish? I know! My mind was blown, too. But that doesn't mean I won't be eating it today — and probably all weekend long — as I'm decked out in green (don't judge, it brings out my eyes). But before we all head out for St. Paddy's shenanigans or whatever you have in store for the weekend ahead, let's take a look at what Bustle's editors were talking about today, March 17: Amanda Seyfried + Thomas …

Bustle's Editors On Clinton + 'The Little Mermaid'

Can we just talk about the ups and downs that were the week of March 6-10? Trump signed a new travel ban, Chrissy Teigen got really real in an essay on postpartum depression, GOP leaders revealed their plan to replace Obamacare (sigh), women took part in "A Day Without A Woman" on International Women's Day, and we finally learned the Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere date — among a hundred other things, I'm sure. Just your typical week in 2017, I suppose. But enough of that, here's what Bustle's…

Signs You’re *Probably* Ready To Have A Baby

A funny thing happens right after you get married. One by one, your relatives and family friends will start to ask, "When are you going to have kids?" That's what happened to me, at least. Fast-forward three years, it's still just me and my husband — though we did add a fur-baby into the mix — and I'm about to turn 30. I legit called my parents with good news last week (got those reservations we were hoping for!), and they put me on speakerphone because they thought I was giving them *the news*.…

What I Wish I Knew Before I Got Married

I'm going to cut right to the chase: I've been thinking about my life a lot lately now that I'm a few months away from turning 30. Are there things I should have done by now? Is there a timeline I'm supposed to be following? Don't get me wrong — I'm happy! I've been with husband for seven years (married for nearly three), we have an adorable puppy, and I have a job that I love. It's just that there's no real guidebook for after you get married. Sure, there are things you're "supposed" to do righ…

Bustle's Editors On Lollipop Lipstick + 'GoT'

Happy freakin' Friday! It was warm, it was cool, it was long, but now it's ov-ah. But before you completely shut off from work and run to happy hour, here's what Bustle's editors were talking about on Friday, March 3: Mike Pence + AOL Vice President Mike Pence reportedly used a private email account while he served as governor of Indiana. What's more, Pence not only used an ~AOL~ account, but it was reported that the private, unsecured account was also hacked. This is obviously causing lots of p…

Bustle's Editors On #Envelopegate + Women's Strike

I have good news, and I have bad news. The bad news? Okay, yes, it's Monday. The good news: Only 21 days until spring! These next few weeks are going to fly by, you guys. So buckle up and take a look at what happened over the weekend and on the first Monday post-awards season. Have a great week! Oscars + #Envelopegate Unless you've been living under a rock (or sleeping like Chrissy Teigen), you *probably* heard something about that insane Best Picture mix-up at the 2017 Academy Awards. Here's wh…

Bustle's Editors On Trump + That 'Nashville' Twist

Ever feel like short weeks sometimes feel the longest? Same. Even with only four days of work after Presidents Day, this week still managed to be jam-packed. Between Instagram's new gallery-like feature (finally!!), another heartbreaking episode of This Is Us, NASA's discovery of 7 new Earth-like planets, and Beyoncé announcing she's dropping out of the Coachella lineup, I'm about ready to unwind this weekend. And we've still got the Oscars to look forward to. Wow. But before I get too ahead of …

Bustle's Editors On *NSYNC & Presidents Day

This week has been a doozy, huh? New York Fashion Week came and went (did you hear about that Sisqó impersonator?!), the Obamas were #RelationshipGoals on Valentine's Day, we found out that American Horror Story Season 7 will be based on the 2016 election, and Scott Pruitt (known climate change skeptic) was confirmed to lead the EPA. But February's more than halfway over, and that means we're this much closer to spring. Too soon? Sorry. Well, without further adieu, here's what Bustle's editors …
