Let’s get right to it: Father’s Day is coming up, and we know you need ideas for gifts. Sure, we don’t know that for fact, since we don’t know know you and all, but we can guess you aren’t necessarily living and breathing the same shit your dad is living and breathing. That’s right, your 65-year-old dad isn’t going to have the same batshit crazy reaction you might have to that Milk Bar cake you see all over your basic friends’ Instagrams. So, it’s on you to do some research and get something he might actually get excited about. But not to fret—we’ve got those young and hip dads covered in this list, too. We know they’re mourning their youth, so the least you can do is get those new dads something cool for Father’s Day.

The reparative moisturizer with Peptide-Rich Plasma® is an all-in-one, highly active moisturizing treatment that hydrates and repairs damaged, aging (sorry!) skin. We love a luxurious moisturizing moment, and so will your dad or husband… once you convince him to use it. And if he doesn’t, more for you.

This is a minimalist, RFID-blocking wallet. The main cardholder uses elastic to expand to hold up to 12 IDs and credit cards. It literally screams “Hi, I was made for dads”.

Men—especially dads—always seem to be uncomfortable and hot (and complaining about it). The Tempur-Pedic Cooling Pillow is iconic because it can solve both of those problems (and you can still keep the thermostat where it’s at). You’re welcome.

This is the nice guy of gifts, because you kind of can’t go wrong with monogrammed packing cubes. They’re even made sustainably from 16 recycled plastic water bottles. It’s a win-win, and if your dad or husband is always the one who’s trying to wake everybody up at 6am on vacation, he’ll appreciate the organization of this gift.

Shoes Under $60 That You Won’t Care About Ruining

It’s no secret that part of being in college means destroying a perfectly good pair of shoes on a night out. You promise yourself you won’t get drunk enough to actually do any damage to your brand new booties, only to find yourself in a frat basement full of jungle juice puddles. It f*cking sucks. I get it. If you’re someone who refuses to stick to one staple pair of “going out shoes,” and has wrecked countless pairs, I come to you today with  shoes under $60 that will allow you to look both great and still be able to afford dinner.

I have used this article as an excuse to online shop done extensive research regarding the cheap shoe selection on the market. I can’t promise these shoes will be the highest quality you’ll ever own. However, I can attest to the fact that they’re cute and you probably won’t care when drinks or god knows what else gets spilled on them at a party. These shoes I chose are mostly all black options. Honestly, I don’t think is too much of a hot take considering you step into one college bar and your white shoes will look like you just trudged through a sewer. Here are shoes under $60 that you won’t care about destroying. 

 Boots

I know what you’re thinking. Black booties for going out? Groundbreaking. But if you go to school in a literal arctic tundra like myself, boots are my go-to. Not only do they allow you stay a little warmer while you wait in line for a bar you can’t get into, but they also can look cute with quite literally any outfit. Also, if you’re on the shorter side, boots can give you a boost in height without wearing heels that make you look like you’re trying too hard.

Zara Ankle Boots, $39.99

Coming in juuuuust under the $40 mark, these Zara booties are a great way to get a chunky boot look similar to Dr. Martens, but the studs and belt detailing makes them more unique than a plain pair of Chelsea boots.

Nasty Gal Black Crock Heeled Booties, $44

The Nasty Gal booties have croc details that add layers to a going-out look and give you a good boost of height. If these boots survive a night out, they’re a cute addition to an everyday outfit that’ll make you look like you actually give a sh*t. Nasty Gal is also aaaaalllways having a sale (literally every day, not even exaggerating). You can easily find other affordable alternatives if these aren’t your style. Win-win!

Forever21 Faux Patent Leather Ankle Booties, $35

Forever21 has also been having a ton of sales as of late, so like Nasty Gal, it shouldn’t be hard to find a good deal on a pair of booties. These faux patent leather ankle boots are kind of edgy and give you a height boost. They have more of a platform heel which should  be more comfortable for long-term wear. The heel also looks pretty water-resistant, which we established is key for surviving a night in a frat basement.

Sneakers

I absolutely love sneakers, but I have one golden rule: avoid white cloth/canvas sneakers like the mf PLAGUE. Normally, I tend to go for a black platforms (because I am lazy) or a white sneaker made of a material I can wipe clean. I also have friends who simply buy a pair of cheap white cloth shoes and replace them once they are too hideous to be seen because they like that style better, so your choice.

 ASOS White Platform Sneaker, $53

ASOS has a sh*t ton of white sneakers to choose from. These are a material you can clean off easily (like I said, my go-to) and have a cool animal print touch above the heel. The platform gives the sneakers a more trendy look, which, let’s be honest, no one is looking at your shoes when you’re out, but it means they’d be cute to wear in the daytime too. 

COTTON:ON Dickson Classic Sneaker, $34.99

This is a more classic take on a white sneaker. Same deal: all-white material that can be easily wiped off, but this pair doesn’t have a platform. Although platform sneakers aren’t necessarily difficult to walk in, these are definitely a safe alternative for long-lasting comfort.

ASOS Black Chunky Platform Sneaker, $32

Similar to the other pair of ASOS sneakers, these black platform sneakers are a staple item that add a little flare to your outfit.

Platform Sandals/Wedges

The only “heels” I am going to include on this list are platforms and/or wedges. The concept of wearing heels out is pretty foreign to me, both because no one at my school does, and because whenever I wear heels, I look like a giant praying mantis. I also feel like the more stability, the better. The last thing you want is to be that bitch walking around outside a bar with her shoes off.

ASOS Black Platform Sandals, $56

This is a pretty basic pair of black platform sandals that can easily be dressed up or down. The fact that they are leather means they’ll hopefully form to your foot, be comfortable, and last a little longer than other sandals.  

SHEIN Cork Platform Strappy Sandals, $22

If you’ve seen a photo of your friends or friends adjacent in a pair of strappy sandals over the summer, there’s a good chance they had these on. Channel your inner basic bitch and buy these affordable cork-bottom platforms. Just read the size guide carefully because these sites can be hit or miss.

ASOS Lace-Up Platform Sandals, $19

Finally, this pair of platform sandals are fairly similar to the first ASOS pair, but with a lace-up detail that could look sick with any sort of outfit. Naturally, I also saved the most affordable pair for last! You seriously can’t go wrong with these sandals for only $19. They’re basically free. 

Even if you didn’t love a single pair of shoes on this list (whatever, your loss), the places above are great starting points if you’re looking for a specific style. No one wants to be spending hundreds of dollars on shoes they know are going to be trashed by the end of the night. Go irresponsibly spend money you don’t have on sh*t you’re going to inevitably ruin.

5 Weight Loss Products That Don’t Work

Everyone wants a quick fix. In the age of instant gratification, the concept of waiting for results is lost on everyone. Smh. The diet industry knows this, and over the years, they have capitalized on consumers’ lack of patience. Cue late-night infomercials and IG sponsored ads for the next big thing in weight loss. Spoiler alert: none of this sh*t actually works. Real results take time—we have been through this. I know you’re better than that, but I also get the temptation. Like, even if something seems too good to be true, you might think to yourself that it can’t hurt to try, right? Well, it might not hurt your body, but it will hurt your wallet. Here are five fitness products that promise a quick fix, but really do not work.

1. The Shake Weight

Oh, the infamous Shake Weight. Did you know that “you can get firm and fabulous arms and shoulders in just six minutes a day” with these? At least, that’s what the manufacturers want you to believe. The Shake Weight comes in two versions, weighing two-and-a-half pounds and five pounds. That’s very…minimal. But the creators of the Shake Weight claim the vibration creates isometric force on the muscles to hold steady, working the muscles more than regular concentric-eccentric movements. Seems scientific sounding and therefore legit, except for the fact that you can create your own isometric force during any exercise by holding the movement at the most force-generating part of the movement. So, by holding a bicep curl halfway for 10 seconds, holding the bottom of a squat, holding a V-sit for your abs, etc. That means you don’t need a Shake Weight to do it. You can also work your muscles more by using dumbbells greater than 2.5 lbs, I’m just sayin’.

2. ThighMaster

Suzanne Somers is one entrepreneurial betch. I love and respect her hustle. This vintage little tool is like the at-home version of the hip adductor machines at the gym. For the goal of this product to be thinner thighs, it does make some sense kinesthetically for this movement and product to work. However, there is no way to spot reduce just one area of your body, so this product alone won’t help you achieve thin thighs. There are also plenty of superior ways to work the thighs that don’t require equipment, such as squats and lunges, as well as plyometric exercises. Plus, keep in mind that when it comes to any fat reduction, diet will always play a major role.

2. Ab Belt

These belts send electronic stimulation to your abdominal muscles, so your muscles contract without you doing the work to contract it. As in, you don’t even have to think of contracting your muscles. Who has the time and energy to consciously flex their muscles, right? But you want abs, though. Talk about lazy. Whether or not it works? Well, the Federal Trade Commission sued the makers of these belts in the early 2000s for making false claims, so that’s that on that. Here’s the real tea: if you can’t even put in the effort to contract your own abs, then no product or person can help you. The end.

4. Weight Loss Gummies

So you’ve heard of the weight loss teas and lollipops that the Kardashian-Jenner clan have promoted. But now, there are also weight loss gummies for you, because diet pills are soooo 1999. This popular brand’s gummies contain two steps, because that looks more legit. One gummy is basically caffeine from green coffee beans to give you energy, and the other one is supposedly an appetite suppressant made from garcina cambogia (a tamarind fruit extract). A one-month supply will cost you $49.90. Not only is packaging and marketing weight loss in a candy very ironic and a cheap juxtaposition, none of their claims have been evaluated by the FDA (no supplements on the market in USA are). These gummies could be, at best, ineffective and a waste of $49.90, or at worst, dangerous if you are allergic. On their website, they do not provide a full ingredients list for these gummies, so I would not be surprised if they contain very small amounts of these “active” ingredients. BTW, in 2014 the FTC sued a green coffee bean company for making false claims and false studies.

5. Slimming Creams/Masks

There are no products on Earth that, once applied directly onto the external surface of your body, can melt off fat, which is an internal cell INSIDE your body. Yes, because we have pores and glands on our skin, products do get absorbed. This is why it is important to use products that are clean and do not contain metals (such as aluminum in our deodorant). However, if we still haven’t gotten aluminum poisoning after years of using our trusty Secret deodorant, there’s no way a cream or mask can make us lose five inches in three weeks. Granted, supple and moisturized skin can appear tighter than dry, dehydrated skin (so don’t skimp on your water), but if you ever see a cosmetic product claiming to “effectively burn fat,” run from those scammers.

Hyped up fitness products come and go every year, but one thing has remained the same: the hunt for a magic weight loss solution. There is a reason why the diet industry is worth $72 BILLION. But just think—if weight loss was something you could purchase at a GNC, the nation as a whole would be a whole lot fitter and obesity would not as much of an issue. Not only is the hunt for overnight weight loss a waste of money, but it is also a waste of time. Can you imagine if instead, we spent that money on buying fresh produce, a gym membership, a piece of at-home gym equipment, or getting a session with a trainer to show us how to lift and work out properly? Something that breeds healthy habits and not false hope? Before you give this industry another dime, don’t let the flashy commercials and edited transformation pictures fool you: there is no product that will give you maximum results for minimum effort. In fitness, just like in life, what you get is what you give.

6 Sneakers To Wear At Your Wedding That Aren’t Tacky

As your resident fashion expert, it may seem odd that I’m suggesting you have some stylish sneaks to wear for your wedding. Not for like, the ceremony of course, but definitely for the reception. Once you’ve gotten through all the ceremonial stuff, it’s time to let go of your Type-A bridezilla tendencies and partayyyyy. You paid all this money for your demonstration of love, so if you don’t let loose to “Yeah” by Usher afterwards, then you’re not doing it right. The problem? Heels are uncomfortable, obviously. That’s where wedding sneakers come in. When done right, they can be a lifesaver that adds a playful touch to your look. But that being said, I’m def not suggesting you throw on your best Nikes that you wear to Barry’s Boot Camp for your big day. Your shoes need to be cute, stylish and go with your bridal look in the least tacky way possible. It’s not an easy feat, but I’m here to help.

1. KEDS for Kate Spade New York Triple Decker Glitter Sneaker

These ones are a collab between Kate Spade and Keds, and are as predictable as it gets for bridal wedding sneakers. They’re sweet, cute, and basic, but unlike other options…not tacky. The platform is great for a little extra height, and the glitter makes them festive in a non JoJo Siwa-adjacent way.

2. Superga 2790 Linea Platform Sneaker

These sneakers are an easy, classic option that you’ll totally rewear post-nuptials. They’re a great everyday sneaker that would look chic and clean with your wedding dress. They’re effortlessly stylish and say “I’m not a regular bride, I’m a cool bride.”

3. Nike Air Force 1 ’07 LXX Sneaker

I’m obsessed with these sneakers, especially for breaking it down at your wedding reception. They’re unique and less predictable than the ones offered at bridal stores. Not to mention, Air Force sneakers are the comfiest of comfy, which will be an amazing relief to put on after your hard day of being your most beautiful self. Hey, beauty is pain!

4. Golden Goose Running Sole Sneaker

Yes, these ones are expensive, but if your soon-to-be hubby tries to give you sh*t, just remind him, “It’s my f*cking wedding day!” *Said in your best Stassi Schroeder impression.* These sneakers are fashionable and cool, but don’t have that dirty old sneaker look that many Golden Goose sneakers are famous for (sry). The last thing you need on your big day is having to explain to your in-laws that yes, you bought your shoes like this. And yes, you did pay for sneakers that look dirty.

5. Marc Jacobs Daisy Studded Slip On Sneaker

I love how feminine and whimsical these slip-on sneakers are! They’re perfect for the bride having her fairytale wedding, who’s too girly to wear a traditional sneaker with her dress. These have the iconic Marc Jacobs daisies on them, so you know they’re both feminine and street style-approved.

6. Moschino Platform Sneakers

Okay, these ones are for the bride who prides herself on her fashionista ways. Again, they’re predictably expensive cause like, they’re Moschino, but if you ask me, I’d tell you they’re worth it. Like, these are totally the sneakers Erika Jayne would wear at her wedding reception. And I mean, if Erika Jayne would wear them, then you should too.

Trust me, after a day full of smiling for the camera and excruciatingly beautiful heels, you’re going to be happy to have a cool pair of wedding sneakers to change into. I mean like, I’ve never been a bride or anything, but I have gone out in heels, and was in so much pain that I HAD to change into those drugstore ballet flats that fit unnaturally into your clutch. No, I wasn’t prepared enough to have had them in my purse, my friend did. But let me tell you, I was glad she did. Don’t be forced to wear your friend’s flats that conveniently yet inexplicably fit into her purse on your big day. Rather, maintain your dignity and prepare by getting one of these stylish pairs of sneakers instead.

The Best Sneakers To Pair With Every Summer Outfit So You’re Stylish And Comfortable

Once thought of as just a workout necessity, sneakers have quickly become THE shoe of summer. And if you don’t have a pair yet, it’s time to get yourself to Foot Locker. Summer sneakers look good with every single outfit and pair seamlessly with everything in your closet. Like, some brides fucking wear sneakers with their wedding dresses nowadays. Def not suggesting that you take the trend that far, but you catch my drift. There’s just something so effortlessly stylish about pairing sneakers with an otherwise feminine or dressed-up look, and you need to get on board. From a guy’s perspective, sneakers make you look low-maintenance and chill af and, to girls, you look innately stylish. And, not only do sneakers look good with everything, but they also look good on everyone. Whether you’re into dad sneakers (*raises hand*), Old Skool Vans, or even Air Force Ones, there’s a perf sneaker out there for you. 

Like, legit, sneakers are the only shoe I’ve worn so far this summer… I mean, why the fuck would I wear anything else? I’m an intelligent girl, and when a trend comes around that is actually comfortable and makes my life easier, I’m obviously going to get on board. Here are four different examples of summer outfits that look even better with sneakers.

1. Shorts + Nikes

You can elevate even your most basic summer outfit with a hint of cool by pairing it with some trendy af sneakers. For example, you can wear a basic white tee with distressed denim shorts plus a pair of Vans, add a cute crossbody and a pair of sunnies, and BAM! Like, excuse me miss, but are you a fashion blogger? I chose to pair my shorts and Nikes with a graphic tee and a newsboy cap for a v Hailey Baldwin-inspired daytime-casual look.

Nike Air Huarache

Brandy Melville Aleena Oxford 1991 top

AGOLDE Parker High Rise black denim shorts

2. Skirt + Vans

Okay, so I’m currently OBSESSING over the skirt and sneakers combo right now. This outfit is the perfect mix of masculine and feminine (very 2018), and just looks so effortlessly chic. Literally any skirt, from denim to gingham, looks super stylish paired with sneakers. I wore my skirt and Vans ensemble with this feminine yellow top and on-trend sunnies. By wearing sneakers instead of a pair of heels, my outfit looks way more casual and Santa Monica-pier appropriate.

Vans Canvas Old Skool sneakers

Forever 21 Ribbed Twist-Front crop top

Revolve Lovers + Friends Cinci skirt

3. Dress Or Romper + Dad Sneakers

This pairing is the easiest outfit combo EVER and makes for a super stylish yet comfortable look. This outfit combo is an ideal going-out outfit, particularly for summer, where most nights you’ll be outdoors at either a rooftop bar or beer garden with a more causal vibe. Throw on an otherwise “clubby” dress with a pair of sneaks, and not only do you no longer look like a thirst trap, you look wayyyy more event-appropriate. Plus, everyone from Kendall Jenner to Hailey Baldwin has been rocking this look lately. I wore sneakers to dress down this super girly Forever 21 dress since I was going to a more laid-back dinner spot. 

 

Nike Air Huarache

Forever 21 Strawberry Cami Dress

4. Jumpsuit + Vans

Okay, maybe just as easy of an outfit as a dress/romper with sneakers is a jumpsuit with sneakers. Again, you get to look super stylish while remaining incredibly comfortable. Not only that, this outfit combo is super easy to move around in, which proved necessary for dodging all the “free” mixtape CDs I was being handed at Venice beach. Make sure the length of the jumpsuit is short enough that you can wear sneakers and it doesn’t actually require heels. If it’s too long, you’ll be tripping all over the place and, before you know it, cornered into buying five CDs when you don’t even own a CD player (or know anyone that does).

Vans Canvas Old Skool 

Forever 21 Striped Culotte Jumpsuit

Topshop Oversized Ripped denim jacket

With all of these trendy sneaker outfit ideas, you’re prepared to have the most stylish and comfortable summer of your life. Not only that, you’re now physically capable of running away from that creepy guy at the bar, or the mean bouncer trying to take your fake. Just be warned—even though your feet don’t hurt so you don’t have to go home doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go home. Like my mother always said, nothing good happens after 2am.

3 Comfortable Summer Heels You Can Wear All Day & Night

We’re a little over two months away from the first day of summer, and praise fucking be considering the weather we’ve been having. If you’re anything like me when it comes to procrastination, then you’ve most likely done your spring cleaning already. Assuming you’ve emptied out your closet and cleaned out your dresser, you’ve miraculously paved the way for new and better shit to take up more room this summer. There’s no better motivation to look your absolute best come bikini bod szn than shopping for sexy rompers, skin-tight bodycons, and of fucking course, brand new summer heels. From non-fugly mules and cut-out booties, this summer’s shoe trends don’t look so hideous. For once. Here are a few summer heels you can go from day to night drinking in.

Jeffrey Campbell Perpetua Mule

More often than not, mules are fucking disgusting. It’s true, they’re most likely worn by the Patricias in your office. Of all the ridiculous trends so far, this year’s summer shoes seem to  have one thing in common: comfort. That being said, don’t wear regular mules. Wear like, ~cool~ styles like ones with a platform heel in different materials, and especially ones that show off your new pedicure.

Lucky Brand Idalina Sandal

Low wedges with ankle ties are a boho chic staple, especially during festival season. They make your legs look miles long and v toned. Bless. With a low block heel we’ve been obsessed with since last summer, you won’t whine throughout the night that your feet hurt, or look like Bambi stumbling home.

Free People Infinity Heel Boot

Booties are the shit. You can wear them all year round (sometimes the same pair) and still get a ton of likes on your Insta. The heels are always thick, so you can totally last hours in them without having your feet hate you. And with all the different colors, you can never have too many—says someone who owns at least 10 pairs, six of them black. Moving on! This summer is all about the open-toed bootie that come in neutral shades like taupe, so your summer vacay tan looks a whole lot better when you go from the beach to the bars.

5 Trendy Sneakers That Will Get You Psyched For Spring
Spring is most definitely the best season of all time, and if you don’t agree you can fight me in the comments. It has the perfect temperature that allows you to wear the cutest effing outfits, without fear of sweating profusely or freezing your ass off. Spring fashion brings out our beloved high-waisted shorts, pastel crop tops, denim jackets, and of course, pristine tennis shoes that don’t make you look like a regular hipster, but a cool hipster. It is thankfully almost time to ditch the combat boots and instead, buy a chic pair of sneakers in like, every color available, obvi. Here are 5 v trendy pairs to get you started for spring.

1. Adidas Womens Neo Womens Advantage Sneaker 

Whether or not you’ve become incredibly basic like the rest of us in white Adidas Superstars, you’d find these just as irresistible. You may barely see the difference between the two styles, but these are clearly a serious upgrade to the overdone tennis shoes you see on every Becky and Kare, simply because they come with subtly trippy holographic stripes.

2. Vans Double Light Gum Old Skool

Although forever a classic, Vans have sort of evolved into trendy sneakers that are no longer limited to sk8er bois. We can thank the socially constructed idea of “street style” for that. NGL, they’ve had a major glow-up since Avril Lavigne’s time, so this millennial pink style is just one of many you’ll find yourself adding to your cart this spring.

3. Keds x Rifle Paper Co. Champion Floral Print Sneaker

Kick off spring with none other than a pair of floral tennis shoes you can take from Governors Ball and Coachella to rooftop happy hours once it hits 70 degrees. You can talk shit about me in the comments your group chat for choosing a floral print for spring, but these are fucking cute, ok?!
Keds x Rifle Paper Co. Champion Floral Print Tennis Shoes

4. Steve Madden Lancer Black Sneakers

Here, a chic all-black sneaker to ease your inner goth mind this spring. The style features mesh detailing and a slight platform heel, so you’ll look sleek and trendy in your usual outfit of black leggings and a crop top.

5. Womens Puma Suede Athletic Shoe in Light Blue

If you’re sick of lame af neutrals and still hate almost every color in the rainbow (first of all, what’s wrong with you), then you can still opt for a low-key pop of color with this v soft suede baby blue sneaker.

The Cutest Workout Leggings You Need Right Now

As much as Christian bloggers wish otherwise, leggings are here to stay. They’re comfy, fashionable, and they make our asses look great (/existent), what’s not to love? But there’s nothing more embarrassing than rolling up to brunch in the same leggings you worked out in… and slept in… and  wore to work the day before. I mean, okay, I can think of a few more embarrassing things just by quickly recalling my adolescence, but that’s not the point. The point is, you need to buy some new leggings, and what better time to do so than with spring right around the corner? This season’s all about pastel colors, cute color-blocking, and interesting cutouts. We rounded up the cutest workout leggings that you just need to add to your leggings drawer.

1. Outdoor Voices Tri-Tone Legging

Outdoor Voices leggings are kinda becoming the new Stan Smiths, but the seasonal yellow shades are low-key amazing. Get the matching top to look like your favorite SoulCycle instructor.

2. Koral Western Legging

LOVE the coral/peach color on these—it’s like, the most on-trend shade for workout leggings rn—and I love how they’re sleek without being overly shiny in a tacky way. The lining is super trendy, too. Honestly these are my favorites. Should I stop now?

3. Adidas By Stella McCartney, Yoga Seamless Tight Spacedye

These are sick. A little colorful, but not in an offensive way. Pair it with a plain white or navy tank so you don’t assault anyone’s eyeballs with an overly busy outfit.

4. Gymshark Women Ombre Seamless Leggings

Again with the pink. Very in this season. Also, ombre is totally back, but like, just for workout leggings right now—still not for your hair. It was a bad call in 2013, and it’s a bad call today.

Varley Justin Tight

The vintage rose color on these workout leggings is so trendy, and the little detailed cutouts are amazing. May need the matching sports bra too.
