Some of you may have started the year hitting the gym hardcore, but let’s face it- by mid-month, New Year’s fitness resolutions usually come to an end. I completely understand as I’m guilty of calling it a quits far too soon (previous years). However, what has me extra motivated this time around are killer at-home workout routines. You don’t need much to break a sweat in the comfort of your own living room, plus you’ll be done within 30-45 minutes and can quickly get back to relaxing.

Chances are you’re either hosting or attending some kind of holiday soiree this season.

Today is National Fortune Cookie day! Yes, an entire day dedicated to crispy cookies filled with luck-bearing paper! In my house, this is cause for a celebration and that means one thing and one thing only: Tonight I’ll be ordering a boatload of Chinese food for dinner in hopes that, in honor of this day, I’ll find the most epic fortune of all time! Of course, given that there’s a definite chance that won’t happen — this past Christmas I opened not one, not two, not three, but FOUR fortune cookies in a row with no fortune! — I decided to take it upon myself and write my own fabulously fun fortunes! Keep in mind these aren’t traditional (and they definitely follow a style-inspired theme) but hopefully you’ll have a good laugh and maybe even pass them on. Enjoy!
