    The Internet Is Divided Over the Color of Billie Eilish’s Sneakers

    Billie Eilish has discovered 2020’s version of the “The Dress.” You, of course, remember that 2015 moment when everyone in the world seemed to have an opinion on whether a specific dress was blue and black or white and gold. (For the record: I will die on the blue and black hill.) 

    Eilish was doing a Q&A with fans on her Instagram Stories when someone asked for her opinion on “The Dress,” which she stated was actually blue and gold to her. She then pulled out a pair of Nike sneakers that presented their own sort of optical illusion. She said her father thought they were pink and white, which is also what they looked like to me. However, the singer said they are actually mint green and white. To be fair, they also kind of look mint and pink. 

    It’s a mystery! 


    “The whole internet is gaslighting me,” Eilish said playfully. “I don’t care what you think they look like, I care what they are.” 

    She then took the shoe in question and another pair outside in the sunlight for comparison’s sake—and…it seems like she was, indeed, right. 


    Obviously, people on social media had to weigh in. “Every time i look at billie eilish’s story those shoes are a different colour. HOW TF ARE THEY MINT AND WHITE AND NOT PINK AND WHITE!? IM GOING CRAZY. HELP,” one person tweeted. “Billie Eilish yelling at her followers for saying her shoes were pink and white is the only celebrity drama I want to see in my life EVER again,” another wrote. 

    Whatever the case, Eilish’s shoes are very cute. Looks like people will just have to agree to disagree on this one, like they did with that damn dress. (But again, for the record, let me just say it was blue and black!) 

    Are You There God? It’s Me, Menopause

    The most effective medical therapies for hot flushes are estrogen, some antidepressants, and some anti-seizure medications. As a doctor, I knew—despite all the claims on social media and various wellness sites—that diet, acupuncture, wearable magnets, and supplements were either ineffective or unproven. And on top of that, some of these so-called alternative therapies have risks. Especially supplements, which are unregulated and can sometimes contain hormones or antidepressants—medications that shouldn’t be taken without appropriate supervision.

    I also practiced cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for hot flushes. There is good evidence to support its use here given the connection between hot flushes and anxiety; there are some shared connections in the nervous system that explain the overlap in symptoms, which may be why some medications that can treat anxiety can also improve hot flushes. Some might call that complementary or alternative medicine, but if it’s proven to be effective—which CBT is—then for me, it’s just medicine.

    For many women—women like me—menopause isn’t just about the bothersome symptoms. I knew my family history put me at high risk for osteoporosis. My mother began developing fractures in her 50s. She was likely in menopause by her early 40s, but such was the cloak of shame at the time that I can only approximate her age based on what I remember about her seemingly constant yelling at my father for shutting the windows.

    Like many women, my mother’s osteoporosis was ignored. When I suggested she get screened for osteoporosis she was told she didn’t need it. When I suggested she start hormone therapy treatment she was told she “didn’t want that”—and that was even before the public concern surrounding estrogen. As women age their health concerns are often ignored as women themselves are expected to fade away into oblivion. After a miserable final 10 years with fracture after fracture, she died at age 86 from osteoporosis, having spent much of those final years in pain and in hospitals.

    Estrogen prevents the accelerated loss of bone mass characteristic of menopause, so I knew it was the right choice for me to treat my hot flushes and protect my bones. I opted for estradiol, which is the main type of estrogen made by the ovary before menopause. While all pharmaceutical grade MHT is low risk, transdermal estradiol is the safest option as it’s not associated with an increased risk of blood clots, so that’s what I chose. To protect my uterus, I chose an oral form of progesterone, as it is associated with the lowest risk of breast cancer (and even then, research shows the low risk seems to only start after several years of therapy).

    Also popular are“bioidentical” or compounded hormones, but I would never recommend that approach or choose it for myself. “Bioidentical” is a quasi-medical term of varying definitions. These products aren’t one step away from ground up yams, they are synthesized in a multi-step process in a lab, as are most hormones in MHT. In other words, these terms are not medical, they are marketing and are misleading.

    There are serious safety concerns with compounded hormones. They may contain more or less hormone than advertised and their absorption may be erratic, leading to increased risks of complications such as endometrial cancer. With an FDA approved prescription, I know exactly what I’m getting and how much is absorbed. There is a wide range of dosing and formulations available, so pharmaceutical MHT can be customized to suit each woman’s need. And no, I don’t take money from the pharmaceutical industry—I just demand precision in my medications as all women should. We deserve to know exactly what we’re putting in our bodies.

    Navigating—and destigmatizing—menopause treatments

    A woman’s decision to start hormones should be based on her symptoms and her risk of osteoporosis, but also her personal medical history. It’s important to consider a variety of risk factors and conditions that may be positively or negatively affected by MHT such as breast cancer, heart attack, stroke, type 2 diabetes, elevated triglycerides, blood clots and dementia.

    George Clooney Just Revealed He Almost Played Noah in ‘The Notebook’

    George Clooney has played many iconic roles in his career: Doug Ross, Danny Ocean, Bruce Wayne/Batman, the list goes on and on. But can you imagine him as Noah Calhoun from The Notebook

    It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Ryan Gosling in the part at this point, but according to Clooney he almost had it, with Paul Newman starring as the older version of Noah instead of James Garner. The actor revealed this little tidbit during a virtual conversation for the 64th BFI London Film Festival where he was promoting his new Netflix movie, The Midnight Sky, which he directs and stars in. 

    “We [he and Newman] were going to do The Notebook together,” Clooney said, per Deadline. “Basically, I was going to play him as a young man, and it was funny. We met and said, ‘This is it. It’s going to be great.’” Apparently, he then went home and start binging Newman movies, which low-key freaked him out. “He’s one of the handsomest guys you’ve ever seen. We met up [again] and I said, ‘I can’t play you. I don’t look anything like you. This is insane,’” he said. “We just wanted to do it because we wanted to work together, [but] it ended up being not the right thing for us to do.”

    Obviously, things worked out as they should, and The Notebook with Gosling, Rachel McAdams, Garner, and Gena Rowlands is a modern classic that will never not bring us to tears. But we’d kind of love to see what a version with George Clooney and Paul Newman would have looked like, too. The idea of it also has us wondering who might have been cast in the Allie role. Julia Roberts? Sandra Bullock? Diane Lane? Jen Aniston? Laura Dern? We have so many ideas. 

    Whoever it might have been, we’re positive one thing would remain the same: Noah + Allie 4EVER. 

    The Best Small Tattoos You’ll Want to Copy From Celebrities

    Small tattoos might be discreet and dainty, but these miniature works of art prove that size doesn’t matter when it comes to ink. Tiny tattoos have big meaning—and huge influence on your style. Take models Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin, for example, who got matching designs as a symbol of their friendship. Or Kylie Jenner, who has proved her affinity for minimalist tattoos with multiple (and counting) on her body already. Mandy Moore, meanwhile, got one in dedication of her mountain climb, and the Pretty Little Liars cast got group ink. So whether you’re debating getting ink of your own or just want to go down a rabbit hole of ideas for small tattoos, click on through for our favorite celebrity examples.

    Hailey Bieber Got a Small, Sweet Justin Tattoo on Her Finger

    Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin) and Justin Bieber recently celebrated their wedding anniversary…two of them, in fact. In September 2018, the couple was legally wed at a courthouse in New York and then a year later had their wedding in South Carolina. 

    Perhaps to mark the milestones, the model recently got some new, very meaningful ink. Celebrity tattoo artist Mr. K. posted some images of his latest work on Instagram, which includes the letter “J” on Bieber‘s left ring finger and the word “beleza” (“beauty” in Portuguese) on her neck. “J✨is for @justinbieber and beleza ‘beauty in Portuguese’,” he wrote. “It was PLEASURE for your trust on this meaningful piece @haileybieber 💚 ✨🙏🏻✨💚 #haileybieber #justinbieber #mrktattoo.”

    We have to say, we love them both. 

    Over the weekend, Hailey Bieber accompanied her husband to Saturday Night Live where he was the musical guest, performing two of his new songs, “Holy” and “Lonely.” “Holy” is thought to be about J’s relationship with both his wife and God, with lyrics like “That the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me / Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy” and “Runnin’ to the altar like a track star / Can’t wait another second / ‘Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy.”

    “It was difficult for me to understand how to carry on a relationship like this, experienced under the eyes of all. But there comes a time when you have to embrace reality and admit who you are,” HB recently revealed about her relationship in an interview. “For a long time I couldn’t do it: I didn’t kiss him in public, I didn’t like the idea of ​​people watching us at certain moments. But I realized that it is a battle that, in the long run, instead of protecting you, exhausts you. The fact is, we love each other. And there is really nothing to hide.”

    “Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful🙏🏽❤️,” Malik said. “To try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together x”

    Adele Is Going to Host ‘SNL’ for the First Time, and She Had the Perfect Reaction

    Mark your calendars, everyone! Adele will make her Saturday Night Live hosting debut next Saturday, October 24 with music guest H.E.R.

    Following NBC’s official announcement, the “Hello” hitmaker took to Instagram to share the news with her millions of followers. She began her post in typical Adele fashion, writing, “Bloooooody hellllll” alongside a photo of her and H.E.R.’s names on a post-it.

    Adele explained how excited and “absolutely terrified” she is to host her first SNL episode. She wrote, “I’ve always wanted to do it as a stand alone moment, so that I could roll up my sleeves and fully throw myself into it, but the time has never been right.”

    “But if there was ever a time for any of us to jump head first into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best it’s 2020 right?” she continued. “It’ll be almost 12 years to the day that I first appeared on the show, during an election…which went on to break my career in America, so it feels full circle and I just couldn’t possibly say no!”

    “I am besides myself that H.E.R will be the musical guest!! I love her SO much I can’t wait to melt into a flaming hot mess when she performs, then confuse myself while I laugh my arse off in between it all,” the 15-time Grammy winner concluded. “See you next week.”

    It’s safe to say Twitter is “bloody” excited as well and some fans believe Adele’s SNL gig may be proof that she’s releasing a new album before Halloween.

    The singer previously served as musical guest on SNL on October 18, 2008 and on November 21, 2015. Adele’s hosting debut will follow Chris Rock’s Season 46 premiere, followed by comedian Bill Burr, and Insecure star Issa Rae, who hosted October 17’s episode with musical guest Justin Bieber.

    TikTok’s Hot Cocoa Bombs Are the Latest Food Trend—and You Can Get Them at Costco

    The internet just found their new obsession: hot cocoa bombs. The latest viral food trend is taking over TikTok—and this one is even better than Dalgona coffee

    Halloween and Thanksgiving aren’t even here yet, but people people can’t get enough of these festive chocolate cocoa “bombs” that are the perfect snack to snuggle up to while watching your favorite holiday movie. They’re essentially edible bath bombs and not only do they look tasty, but they’re mesmerizing to watch because they literally dissolve in warm milk and then release hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, and other delicious goodies.

    As you can see in one video, TikTok user @stephanieevaann—who compared the experience to ASMR—puts the bomb into mug, pours some hot milk over it until the chocolate begins to melt, and voilà…the perfect cup of cocoa! It’s seriously like magic.

    Check out more videos below:

    Some TikTok users are sharing how to make the hot cocoa bombs at home. According to Cathy Ortiz, cake decorator and entrepreneur from Florida, all you need are four ingredients to make a s’mores-flavored cocoa bomb (via Today):

    First, you’ll need to melt the chocolate in a bowl before brushing a silicone mold with two coats of chocolate. Let it dry and then remove the hardened halves from their mold. You’ll then need to melt the edges of one side of the shell and put a tablespoon (or however much you want!) of s’mores hot cocoa mix inside and the mini marshmallows. 

    From there you’ll heat the rim of the second half and connect both halves together so it forms a sphere before sprinkling the graham crackers on top.

    If you want to enjoy this sweet treat without the hassle of preparing it, they’re also available at Costco in flavors like milk chocolate, salted caramel, and s’mores. The best part? A box of 16 hot cocoa bombs are less than $20 and come wrapped in festive red, green, gold, and silver packaging.

    Who else is adding these to their wish list?
