How Often You Should Really Clean Your Nail Clippers
Have you ever wondered how often you should be cleaning your nail clippers? To be honest, the answer might surprise you. RELATED: The One Thing You Should Never Do When Painting Your Nails According to Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC), all equipment we use before clipping our nails should be cleaned properly. This means we should be cleaning our nail clippers before every single use. This is especially important if the nail clippers are being shared by other people. The reason why we need to be cleaning our nail clippers after every single use is because dirt and germs naturally build up under our nails, and even when we trim them, if we're not sterilizing our nail clippers, we're only building up on more bacteria. Plus especially if you're sharing nail clippers with someone else, by not cleaning your nail clippers daily, you're spreading germs back and forth. This could lead to some major (and majorly disgusting) infections, such as pinworms. RELATED: The Best Hand Lotions For Severely Dry Skin #ThanksWinter To conclude, the best way to take care of your nails is to keep your nail products sterilized frequently and to keep your fingernails short by trimming them daily.

3 Ingredients From Your Kitchen That You Should Be Using On Dry Hands
Nothing is worse than rough, dry, cracked hands. And when winter hits, like it inevitably (and unfortunately) does, it seems like there's nothing we can do to avoid our hands from becoming this way. But before you run to the nearest drugstore to buy a quick fix, you should know that you probably already have ingredients in your own kitchen that you could use to bring your dry hands back to life! Here are three at-home remedies for dry hands: Olive Oil Olive oil is one of those ingredients that seems to do no wrong. The benefits of using olive oil on your hands is that the antioxidants and healthy fatty acids in olive oil will leave our skin soft and moisturized. 1. Mix equal amounts of warm olive oil and fine sugar. 2. Massage your hands with the warm olive oil and fine sugar for about five minutes. Make sure you scrub it in in light, circular motions. 3. After the five minutes are up, pat dry your hands. We recommend doing this twice a day. Oatmeal Oatmeal works as a natural cleansing exfoliant, and the protein in it will prevent drying your skin and leaving it moisturized. 1. Prepare a mix of two tablespoons of ground oatmeal, one teaspoon of honey and a little water. Stir the mix until it turns into a paste. 2. Rub this DIY scrub into your hands lightly and in circular motions. 3. Then let it dry until it becomes a mask, and leave it on for ten minutes. 4. Rinse it off with warm water and pat dry. We recommend doing this once a week. Coconut Oil Coconut oil contains a beneficial combination of fatty acids, which help benefit and prevent dry skin. In fact, coconut oil not only soothes dry skin, but it helps to relieve any skin damage from exposure from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. 1. Apply warm extra-virgin coconut oil on your hands, the quantity should be no more than four tablespoons. 2. Massage your hands for about five minutes in a circular motion. 3. Leave this on before going to bed, and wear gloves overnight. This is to ensure that the coconut oil really seeps into your skin. for about 5 minutes using circular motions before going to bed. 4. Rinse it off in the morning and pat dry your hands. You can do this every night, but once a week should work fine!

The One Thing You Should Never Do When Wearing Tights
Winter is here, and so is the cold. But that doesn't mean we have to sacrifice our favorite skirts and dresses for those dreary, frigid days ahead. But what if your tights run? It's inevitable, right? Well, only to a certain degree. It's all about which kind of tights you're wearing. That's why the one thing you should never do when wearing tights is buy the cheapest option. When it comes to tights, quality always prevails over quantity. So when your stocking up on new tights for the season, look out for tights that are completely opaque. Those are the best ones. Secondly, make a note of what the denier count is for the tights. It should be clearly stated on the label. (Side note: A denier is a standardized measurement of a pair of tights' thickness, this means the higher the denier number, the less likely your tights will rip). Ideally the best tights to go for have between a 100-200 denier count, and you can find them anywhere. So don't settle for anything less than this denier count. Now you can wear skirts and dresses without freezing your butt off. You're welcome!

Lady Gaga Named Billboard’s 2015 Woman Of The Year And Reveals She Almost Quit The Industry
Lady Gaga, the iconic superstar and LGBTQ/anti-bullying/anti-harassment advocate, has been named Billboard's Woman Of The Year for 2015. What makes this choice so interesting is that Lady Gaga revealed in the interview how she almost quit the music industry entirely. https://twitter.com/billboard/status/672562993612353536 The moment Lady Gaga almost stepped out of the industry was exactly a year ago. Her latest album at the time, Artpop did not perform as well as her previous albums, and she was unexpectedly producing jazz music with Tony Bennett, too. Lady Gaga told Billboard, "My stylist asked, 'Do you even want to be a pop star anymore?' I looked at him and I go, 'You know, if I could just stop this train right now, today, I would. I just can't. [But] I need to get off now because I'm going to die.'" In what seemed like such a low and sure defeat, she found some security and faced a comeback. "When you're going so fast you don't feel safe anymore, you feel like you're being slapped around and you can't think straight. But then I felt hands lifting me. It was like everybody came together to try and put a star back in the sky, and they weren't going to let me down." She also talks about how she wants to change the way women are perceived in their 30s. "Why is it that we're disposing of people once they pass that mark? It's suddenly, 'You're an old woman.' I'm not f– king old. I'm more sexual and powerful and intelligent and on my shit than I've ever been. I've come a long way through a lot of heartache and pain, but none of it made me damaged goods. It made me a fighter. I want to show women they don't need to try to keep up with the 19-year-olds and the 21-year-olds in order to have a hit. Women in music, they feel like they need to f– king sell everything to be a star. It's so sad. I want to explode as I go into my thirties." If Lady Gaga wants to explode into her thirties, she will. This is one of the many reasons why she deserves the title of Billboard's Woman Of The Year. This is especially powerful since she admits this is the year she finally started doing music for herself, inside of producing music the industry told her she needed to do. https://twitter.com/ladygaga/status/672545471278149632 “It speaks volumes to me that I’m being recognized as Woman of the Year in 2015. This is the year I did what I wanted instead of trying to keep up with what I thought everyone else wanted from me.” And don't forget to check out: VIDEO: HBO Just Released The First Trailer From Game Of Thrones Season 6, If You Have Oily Skin, Then Try This Face Primer, and Miley Cyrus Gave Britney Spears The BEST Birthday Gift [Photo: Splash News]

Can You Tell Which Fringe Bucket Bag Costs $1,741 More Than The Other?
A bucket bag in fringe... these are a few of my favorite things. Bucket bags are great because their small size surprisingly stores so much, and the fringe is just so on-trend this fall. To have that whole package? A dream come true. The Saint Laurent Emmanuelle Small Fringed Suede Bucket Bag is stunning, but my bank account would say the price tag isn't as pretty as the bag itself. Although, since the bag was made in Italy, it is completely justified that the price tag is $1,890. But then I came across a Saint Laurent bucket bag lookalike that is uncanny! The lookalike is the Patricia Nash Suede Bronte Bucket Bag, which is on sale right now for $148.99. Can you tell which fringe bucket bag costs $1,741 more than the other?

You Should Stop Using A Shower Loofah–Here’s Why
I always figured that showering with a shower loofah was the best way to exfoliate and get clean... well apparently, by using a loofah I'm actually doing the total opposite. Alarming? Yes. But here's why. According to a 1994 study published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology, this go-to shower accessory is the home to bacteria. By using shower loofahs, the bacteria that grows in them can not only spread but transmit a bacterium called pseudomonas aeruginosa, which can cause disease in animals. But where is this bacteria coming from? So when we use our loofahs, we're scrubbing away at our dead skin. Then if the loofah is not rinsed thoroughly, we're pretty much scrubbing yesterday's filth back onto ourselves. Furthermore, if we don't properly dry out our loofahs... we're allowing bacteria to sit, produce and grow. Yeah, not feeling too squeaky clean now, but it's not exactly the loofah's fault. It's all about how we maintain the loofah after each use. If you missed it, we shared with you earlier this year how to do that. Click here to read our tips and advice to keep your loofah as clean as possible! Don't forget to check out: Psst!

Kourtney Kardashian And Scott Disick Are Back Together For The Sake Of Their Children
What a year it's been for Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's relationship. First they split up, and then things got much worse for Kardashian as Disick continued to disappoint, but now things are starting to look up for good. As we watched the couple fall in love and slowly fall apart, it's now reported that the split couple has reunited...but for the sake of their family, not necessarily their relationship. Kardashian and Disick have three children together: Mason Disick, 5, Penelope Disick, 3, and Reign Disick, 11 months. When things were not looking too good for this family, Kardashian did everything in her power to protect her children. Initially, problems arose due to Disick's irresponsible behavior with partying, drinking, and drugs. The couple called it quits because Kardashian wanted Disick to step it up, and it looks like he finally has. A source revealed, "Scott has been integrating back into the family and things are going really well. They're a family unit again. When Kourtney talks about them, she says 'We.' It's no longer just her and the kids. It's all of them." Earlier this week, even Kris Jenner, mother of the Kardashian clan, posted a photo with Disick on Instagram showing her support for him. https://www.instagram.com/p/-xZlpAG-G6/?taken-by=krisjenner Kim Kardashian also shared weeks ago to E! News how this split impacted the entire family, "It's a hard adjustment. We love Scott, too. He's family. So that makes it hard for everyone, even though you might not agree with someone's actions." Nothing's stronger than family, right? We hope that this reunion brings the family some peace and stability after this rough year of uncertainty.

You Will Never Sleep In Your Contacts Again After You Read This
You've probably heard that you shouldn't sleep with your contacts in, but you've also probably never thought too much about the consequences if you do it. Well, take our word for it when we tell you just how bad it is. In short, it left a woman with a 7-8 inch worm inside her eyeball. Gross is an understatement. In the latest episode of Animal Planet's Monsters Inside Me, Iowa college student Melanie suffered light sensitivity and pain. What the doctors quickly realized is the reason why you will never sleep in contracts again... This irritation that Melanie experienced was due to a rare parasite eating her eye. Biologist Dan Riskin says in a clip for the upcoming episode, "What makes the Acanthamoeba parasite so dangerous is their ability to burrow deep into the tissue of the eyeball." "Once there, they can be hard to remove or even treat, which allows the parasites to feed on the host's cells unchecked." Initially, Melanie went back to school and recommended to use an eye drop solution given by her doctor, which likened to professional pool cleaner. She was requested to apply the eye drops every hour for four days. Melanie shares in the preview, "When I put the eye drops in, the pain it caused was just intense burning. It was an uphill battle, knowing at the top of the next hour you were going to have to do it again and having to set my alarm clock and get up all hours of the night. Just a continuous cycle of pain." And then the worst happened. One morning, she woke up to find that her entire eyeball was white and she found difficulty seeing with it. Melanie says, "It made me look possessed, and I was starting to lose my eyesight. The parasite was completely taking over." If you want to find out how Melanie recovered from this incident with the parasite and her eye, the episode premieres this Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on Animal Planet. In the meantime, here's a clip! If nothing else, we sure learned our lesson to never sleep in our contacts ever again.

Emma Watson On Saying The ‘F’ Word And Finally Feeling Comfortable With Who She Is
And that "F" word we're referring to is 'feminism'. It may be 2015, but apparently prior to Emma Watson's iconic speech back in September for the launch of her HeforShe gender equality campaign, she was advised not to use the word "feminism". Watson revealed to Porter magazine, "I was encouraged not to use the word 'feminism' because people felt that it was alienating and separating and the whole idea of the speech was to include as many people as possible." "But I thought long and hard and ultimately felt that it was just the right thing to do. If women are terrified to use the word, how on earth are men supposed to start using it?" E-x-a-c-t-l-y. Feminism is not a bad word, and by shielding it, we're only further proving the problem at stake. Then she admits that at 25 years old, she is finally comfortable with who she is. "[I’ve] spent more than half of my life pretending to be someone else." "Now at 25, for the first time in my life I feel like I have a sense of self that I’m comfortable with. I actually do have things that I want to say and I want to be my most authentic self.” And we're so inspired that her authentic self is becoming a spokesperson for gender equality and allowing the word "feminism" to be something that isn't so scary to say out loud.

How To Wear Over-The-Knee Boots If You’re Not A Street Style Star
Over-the-knee boots are everywhere, from your Instagram feed to every street style blog. This pair by Stuart Weitzman even made our holiday gift guide! You could say that they are the "it" shoe of the season, but the thing about over-the-knee boots is that they are a bit intimidating to actually wear. We assume unless we're long-legged supermodels, we won't be able to pull them off. Well, I am here to debunk that myth and tell you how to wear over-the-knee boots. When it comes to any trend, it's never about what you're wearing. It's just a matter of how you're wearing it. So let me tell you, regardless of where you stand, short or tall, it doesn't matter! You can definitely pull off over-the-knee boots without looking like they're swallowing you. It's just a matter of how you do it. Here are our tips on how to wear over-the-knee boots. 1. Create the illusion of longer legs. Sam Edelman Remi Stretch Boots ($133, down from $190) I recommend pairing black over-the-knee boots with either black tights/leggings/or dark-wash denim. By doing so, you're creating the illusion of longer, slimmer and leaner legs, just like the models down the runway. By wearing the boots in a way that's more subtle, against the same color, you're making sure that you are wearing the boots versus the boots wearing you. If you're wearing the boots with a dress, make sure the dress hits mid-thigh. If you're wearing the boots with a blouse, make sure it hits right at your hips. This allows the proportions to hit you exactly where you want them to, instead of looking like your clothes are wearing you down. 2. Keep the outfit casual. Theory Arryn Skirt ($245) Stripe Boatneck Sweater ($55.96, down from $69.95) Chinese Laundry Racer Over The Knee Quilted Boot ($89.95) Depending on what you wear with over-the-knee boots, they sometimes wind up looking a bit too risqué for the daytime. The trick to overcoming that issue is to keep your outfit casual while still wearing bottoms that end above the mid-thigh mark. Pair a mini skirt with a slouchy t-shirt or sweater, throw on your go-to jacket and you're set! 3. Choose fitted pieces. Motel Holly Mock-Neck Dress ($39, down from $54.99) VOLATILE Carina ($75) This is a tip that's especially important for more petite gals out there (like myself). I always thought I could never wear over-the-knee boots, but the trick to making them work on a smaller frame is the outfit. Make sure all your clothing fits perfectly from head-to-toe. By keeping a fitted silhouette, you avoid these bold boots from overwhelming your figure. 4. Make it office appropriate. Topshop Dandelion Print Midi Dress ($59,99, down from $105) Michael Antonio Hollywood ($79) This is when that mid-thigh rule goes out the window. You want to wear the right proportions, but you don't want to look inappropriate for work. We recommend pairing over-the-knee boots with something that does cover your thighs, but not in a way that will add on bulkiness. A great pairing would be a midi dress/skirt, or something that falls either right at your knees or right below. This way, the skirt works to cover your thighs without tucking away your figure or minimizing your height. And that is how to wear over-the-knee boots!

Model Removes Six Of Her Ribs To Look Like A Cartoon Character
Just when we've thought we've seen it all, something proves us wrong. Model, Pixee Fox, has spent $120,000 in plastic surgery in the hopes of sculpting her body to look like her favorite animated characters. Fox shares with Barcroft TV, “I’ve always been inspired by cartoons and Disney movies, all the curves and tiny waists. People often, they come up to me and say, ‘Don’t take this the wrong way, but you look like a cartoon.’ For me that’s a compliment. My inspiration started with Tinkerbell, but with my transformation, I’ve been starting to look like Jessica Rabbit.” [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNk7G3kw2oc[/youtube] To maintain her tiny waist, Fox dedicates wearing a corset 24 hours, every single day. Her latest surgery removed six of her ribs, bringing her down to an unbelievable 16-inch waist. “Getting my ribs removed, I have been thinking about it for a long time. So it’s always been like a dream of mine, but it’s really hard to find a surgeon, almost impossible,” she said prior to the surgery. “The only reason I can do it now, is because doctors finally started taking me seriously, because they see I’m not a crazy person.” The surgeon who performed the surgery for Fox, Dr. Barry Epply, was not shocked by Fox's daring request. "There’s nothing complex, extraordinary, or unduly difficult about it. It does require an extremely motivated patient." Clearly, Fox is motivated and passionate about this. But her final message for people is to simply be themselves. "I don’t want to inspire people to get plastic surgery. What I want to do is to get, like, a message out there that it is important to — whatever you decide to do — that you should follow your dreams, and dare to be yourself."

3 At-Home Sore Throat Remedies That Work Instantly
'Tis the season... to get sick. While we're hoping the annual cold and sore throat season skips over us, the least we can do is prepare for it. Plus most of the time, as long as a sore throat is fairly minimal, all you need are at-home remedies to feel as good as new again. Here are our recommendations for some at-home remedies to help soothe a sore throat instantly! 1. Gargle with warm salt water. It's gross, but it really does the trick. Pour yourself a glass of warm water and add a tablespoon of salt. Gargle for a minute and spit it out. This will help reduce your tonsils from swelling and irritation. Also, it's important to note that you should be using warm water because the warmth helps ease the discomfort caused by a sore throat. 2. Drink tea, water and more. It is super important to stay hydrated, especially when you're sick. As noted earlier, hot drinks help to ease the pain and go down a bit more comfortably than cold drinks. Avoid ice cold water because that cold temperature will especially irritate your throat. The more water you drink, the more likely you are to help thin secretions that are causing the sore throat. 3. Sleep with a humidifier. The warm or cold mist (depending on what setting feels most comfortable for you) will help your sore throat because you breathe in air that eases swollen air passages while also relieving hoarseness. However, be cautious while using your humidifier because you don't want to wind up feeling uncomfortably cold or left with a damp room!

"Everglow" is the new song off Coldplay's upcoming album A Head Full Of Dreams (available December 3) that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin collaborated together. Considering that Paltrow and Martin are "consciously uncoupled" (the phrase the two have coined to describe their separation), we have to wonder if this collaboration was intentional before or post-breakup. Martin shared with The Wall Street Journal how the song is, "a ballad about a relationship’s enduring spark". Some of the lyrics to the song read, "Well they say people come/Say people go/This particular diamond/Is extra special/And though you might be gone/And the world may not know/Still I see you're celestial." Paltrow isn't the only unexpected collaboration in this upcoming album. The album includes a track with Martin and Paltrow's two children, Moses and Apple, a part of a choir in several of the tracks. Also, Martin's current girlfriend, Annabelle Wallis, is featured in one of the songs. Martin's explanation to these pairings is, "Everyone who got asked to sing on our album has an important part in our lives...I don’t want to get too hippie, but what I’m trying to learn in my life is the value of every human."

8 Signs You’re The Older Sibling
The older sibling is essentially the lab rat of the family. They're the first to set all the standards... and hopefully set them high! They instantly play the role of a mentor, whether they realize it or not while being a built-in babysitter, who will provide you with all the hand-me-downs you could imagine. While sometimes being the older sibling can come with a tiny bit of pressure to get things right all the time, it's really cool to see your siblings take after you. These are the 8 signs you're an older sibling. 1. You wish the best for your younger siblings, but... If they are doing better than you are, that's a huge problem. After all, you set the tone. They can't top you. That's not how this is going to work. 2. You're instantly equipped for parenthood. You don't need those self-help books because being an older sibling is the most training you need to be a parent. You're the built-in babysitter who got their license to drive the kids to soccer and piano class. 3. You always give the best advice. Since you had to learn how to do everything yourself, you know the best teachers and classes to take, and the best life hacks. Oh, and your relationship advice saves the rest of your family from going through what you did. 4. You're the family scapegoat. Chances are when the going gets tough, it's put on your plate. You're probably the one who dropped all the dishes. After all, the younger kids couldn't possibly have done anything wrong and if they have it's not their fault... how could they know better? But you, you should have known much better. 5. You become the standard. You are instantly the model that will be laid out for the rest of your siblings to follow. They will forever live through the nickname of being your younger sibling. But hey, no pressure. 6. You're a natural born leader. From delegating house chores to choosing what to watch on TV, you are automatically a leader. Your siblings taught you how to work in groups, but they also taught you how to speak up and take charge. 7. Your parents were the most strict on you. Because you set the tone for your siblings to follow, your parents/guardians were the toughest on you. They did this because they wanted the best for you, but it's tough watching your sibling do the things you did and get half the consequences, obligations, or expectations. 8. You're destined to be an instant role model. If you want to make an impact on your siblings, teach them everything you know and them some, and save them from the trouble and mistakes you made... they already know they can turn to you for that. And honestly? That's a pretty powerful and cool thing to have. We know, we know, it's corny, but also so true. Don't forget to check out: The Guy Who Voiced Arnold From Hey Arnold!

This Is The Most Efficient Way To Fold Your Towels
Have you ever noticed the way spas organize their towels? They have a particular way of storing them that makes for the most efficient use of space. What do they do? They roll them. In order to roll your towel, all you have to do is lay it out on a flat surface. Then, take the towel by its width and start rolling it up. This is an especially helpful tip for those living in a shoebox of an apartment. What's great about rolling towels is you can stack them up, one on top of the other, and even store them in more creative places outside of your typical shelves. For example, you can stack your rolled up towels into mini-pyramids and place them in baskets or boxes on the floor. We found this great video by CurbNotes that shows why rolling towels is the most efficient way to store them. Watch it for yourself below!

The One Thing You Should Never Do When Painting Your Nails
I have to admit, I've made this major mistake one too many times. And all it really is is an extra and simple step we should all take. The one thing we should never do when painting our nails is skip applying a base coat. RELATED: 5 Nail Polish Removers That Are Not Completely Awful For Your Nails And Skin If you're someone who changes your nail polish as often as the weather, this is especially important. By applying a base coat, you're not only setting a smooth surface for the nail polish to dry on, you're also giving your nails a little more breathing room. We did some sleuthing on the Internet and found that a base coat creates a barrier protecting our nails from the damaging effects of nail polish. It prevents discoloration, like the unattractive yellow staining we find on our nails when we've had our nail polish on too long. RELATED: 8 Brands That Make Nail Polish That's Actually Good For Your Nails Plus, base coat nail polish has ingredients that contain protein, vitamin E or calcium. This allows for our nails to not only breathe a bit more and prevent discoloration, but also gives our nails extra strength from turning brittle and breaking easily. Really, it's a win-win. So I promise you that those few extra minutes are well worth the energy and extra time.
