On Ireland’s most famous holiday, let’s share in the festivities by celebrating some of its most swoon-worthy romantic heroes.
It's winter again and that means time for curling up at home, drinking hot cocoa (or hot toddies!) and watching netflix. It's also time for fluffy blankets and chunky sweaters. That's right, it's most certainly Sweater Weather. The only thing I love more than a hot man in a warm sweater is when he takes off said sweater. We've rounded up some hunks today that are somehow mastering both being shirtless and wearing a sweater.
2014 cast a huge spotlight on books as a true force in entertainment. And the romance genre hoarded a lot of that bright light. From Fifty Shades of Grey titillating us with on-set shots and Beyonce-crooned trailers, to Outlander storming the airwaves and transporting the television audience to way-back Scotland, (Shout out to the wedding episode!), the books that captivated so many of us left their mark on popular culture in a way you couldn’t miss. With all that said, we wanted to tip our hats to a few breakouts and bestsellers from 2014 that maybe you did miss, but cannot be ignored!

Once upon a time, divorce could stop a political career in its tracks. Fortuitously, actor Ronald Reagan hadn’t entered politics yet when his marriage to actress Jane Wyman ended in 1948—after eight years together. By the time he ran for president in 1980, he had been married to second wife, Nancy Davis, for 28 years and voters forgave him (or never knew about his first marriage to begin with). Ronnie and Nancy were openly affectionate throughout their marriage. He wrote love letters to her often. He once wrote, “Whatever I treasure and enjoy … all would be without meaning… Continue

This song is great for just about every weekend, but it’s absolutely perfect for this weekend.
2. Lucky by Britney Spears
An early 2000s classic. Gotta love Britney at the height of her success. And that lip gloss. Wow.
3. Lucky Star by Madonna
Madonna in all of her punk-glam glory. It’s a great song and an even better video.
4. Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat
This is such a sweet love song and Jason and Colbie’s voices blend together in such a lovely… Continue
2. Remember that time he needed “space?” In 2004, just days before Valentine’s Day, Ken and Barbie split up. The reason? They “felt it was time to spend some time apart.” Please—any good celebrity publicist knows that’s code for someone sneaking around. And Ken always has that cat-who-ate-the-canary… Continue
Wednesday is National Ken Doll Day, so I thought, what better day to celebrate the world’s perfect boyfriend, Ken Carson (that’s Ken’s full name, in case you didn’t already know)? Here are the top five reasons why Ken is the perfect boyfriend:
1. He’s versatile. Ken is never stuck in a rut. He’s been a cowboy, a Harley Davidson rider, a military man, a doctor…the list goes on and on. It seems he’s got the best of all the worlds. With Ken as your boyfriend you can be sure things will never be boring.
2.He knows how to have fun. Ken is constantly trying new activites. He’s sporty, he’s musical, he’s artistic. What this means for you is that he will always have a good date idea up his sleeve. And judging … Continue

Hate it because it means he’s taken, but love it because Amelia Warner is gorgeous and we’re happy he’s happy, right? 4. He’s endorsed by Kiera Knightley (who he dated for two years). She says, of his role in 50 Shades, “He’s a very good looking boy, I’m sure the girls will love him.” A post break-up… Continue
