“You can’t wear a tank top two days in a row, and you can only wear your hair in a ponytail once a week. Oh, and we only wear jeans or track pants on Fridays. Now, if you break any of these rules, you can’t sit with us at lunch.” -Gretchen Wieners
Happy Mean Girls Monday! In celebration of this auspicious occasion, I want you to think back to the first time you watched this amazing teen chic flick. I remember watching this movie and how much I couldn’t wait to get to school the next day and tell my friends about it.
Recently, I decided to watch this movie again and here’s what I got from watching it (as an adult who can quote this entire movie).
Learn to roll with the punches: Life is full of unfortunate events, it’s up to you to go with it and continue to live or you can cry your eyes out and quit. In this case channel your inner Regina George. She was the goddess of not caring about other thought of her. Did your twist out not turn out right and you only have about 15 minutes left until you have to leave for work. Who cares, transform those wet curls into a cute up do or puff and beat your face. Life zip, blackgirlmagic 1 point.
2. Exactly what he said!
3. Remember, no matter how old your mom gets, she’s going to want to barrow a sweater or want to know what’s “hip.” Just keep her in the loop and it’s a little less embarrassing. Mom’s are great, everyone want’s a “cool” mom.
4. Chase the things you want in life. Your dreams won’t become realities if all you do is dream about them.
5. Accept that you’re perfectly flawed. We were created with a sense of uniqueness. Love what makes you different. You can complain everyday but nothing is going to change. Embrace yourself and others will embrace you too.
As a tween, mean girls was the best for all the wrong reasons. Every girl wanted to rule their school but with the wrong attitude. Watching this movie as an adult is just as funny, but mainly because you realize that either you were these girls, you hated these girls or you wanted to be these girls. What ever category you fall under, just remember on Wednesday we were pink!

It’s been an epic weekend for the singer/songwriter, and she has much to celebrate! On October 25th, Ciara turned 29!
Ciara decided to spend her birthday in peace with family calling her day “Perfect Birthday Fun.” She and best friend, LaLa Anthony, got together for some family time at the Central Park Zoo accompanied by their sons, Future Jr. and Kiyan.
“This year I wanted to have a super chill birthday. Me and my bestie @LaLa took our sons to the Central Park Zoo. It was so much fun. #sometimethesimplestthingsarethebestfun #perfectbirthday,” Ciara wrote on Instagram.
Although the fashionista may not have much to wish for on her 29th birthday she certainly has much to celebrate especially after giving birth to her bundle of joy, in May 2014! Since then Ciara has proven that there is nothing that she can’t do! Working hand in hand with Givenchy designer, Ricardo Tisci, the “Evolution” singer has certainly had a style evolution as well within this past year!
Earlier this month, Ciara shared some hot pictures of herself sporting her Calvin Klein underwear, which is only four months after just giving birth! Go CC! She’s proving that weight loss is possible especially after just giving birth.
Speaking of Baby Future, it’s he who is her true inspiration! He is her source of strength especially throughout her rocky romance with his father and her former finance’ Future. Lately, the couple has seemed to be doing well with keeping their family together for the sake of their son.
Ciara’s night concluded with a nice family dinner where both friends and family gathered to serenade her with many birthday wishes. How cute!
