    Kardashian recently talked about how her style has changed since having daughter North, saying, "I want to dress a little lighter, color-wise. I think North looks cute in light colors, and then I want to wear light colors. North doesn't typically wear pink, though. She wears mauve or blush, not, like, typical baby pink." She talked more about her evolving look to The AP: "I think style always evolves and we all have different moods every season. I see an evolution in myself, I know the

  • The “Fire Alarm” Statements that Make Men Panic

    You may just be venting about some bump in the road, but trust us, your guy is hearing "evacuate!" Here's what to say instead. By Anna Davies, REDBOOK.

    "We're never going to have money to send the kids to college."
    "When anxiety bumps up against insecurity, miscommunications can occur," says David Steinbok, Psy.D., a relationship therapist in Boca Raton, FL. Sure, you're worried about finances during tough times, but when you say something about money being tight, your guy hears that he's not being a good provider. In this case, your budget concerns trigger your husband's nagging self-doubt, making it impossible for him to focus on ways to fix the problem at hand. Tweak the conversation by asking him for his thoughts on savings options or starting a tuition-only account. "In general, men are doers, not discussers," says Steinbok, and having potential solutions gives him something to actually work with.

  • Why Kim's Body-Image Angst is Totally Typical in New Moms

    By Lauren Le Vine, REDBOOK.

    Kim Kardashian on Jay LenoKim Kardashian made headlines a few weeks ago when she posted a photo of herself wearing a barely-there white bathing suit on Instagram. Many people wondered why she did it--after all, this is a woman who's faced intense scrutiny about her body from the moment she announced she was pregnant--and last night, Kardashian told Jay Leno her reasoning.

    "This is my big, like, middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat," she said. All the criticism of her pregnancy weight gain "really hurt my soul," Kim admitted. "I was gaining weight because I was pregnant, and it was just really hard to read all these stories and hear all these nasty things." And losing the weight was "the hardest challenge of [her] life."

    Although her body anxiety was definitely heightened by the fact that she lives in the public eye, all new moms feel unsettled and at odds with their body. "Changes in your body are part of the

  • The Weird Reasons He's Not in the Mood

    If your usually-frisky guy has been claiming he has a headache lately, you may be surprised at what's really turning him off. Here are 8 things you can fix--easy. By Jane Bianchi, REDBOOK.

    He feels like you think he's dumb
    Ever try to give your husband directions from the passenger seat? This may seem like nothing--after all, you're just trying to be helpful!--but it can have a damaging effect on your sex life. "Men hate being told what to do, especially in the car," says Fran Walfish, Psy.D., a psychotherapist in Beverly Hills, CA. It can also bring your guy down if you RSVP to a party without asking his thoughts or mock his abilities, even if you're joking. "When your partner is angry, he's likely to either snap at you or become silent," adds Walfish. "And when communication goes south, sex is a natural follower."

  • The Deep-Fried Twinkie Burger is Here

    By Lauren Le Vine, REDBOOK.

    Step aside, MacAttack burger with your fried macaroni and cheese buns. You too, Luther burger sandwiched in between two donuts. There's a new over-the-top burger in town-Philly, specifically. PYT restaurant, which is apparently known for their "stunt-burgers," just released their latest creation, and boy, is it a doozy.

    Per the restaurant's Facebook page, the Deep-Fried Twinkie Burger has two deep-fried Twinkie buns, a custom-blend pork-belly patty, American cheese, and (in case you were worried about getting your lifetime allotment of grease from one burger) "extra bacon." After hearing that combination, we can't help but feel exactly the way the woman pictured on the restaurant's Facebook announcement does.

  • You're Going to Want to Run a Marathon After Reading This

    By Lauren Le Vine, REDBOOK.

    Seeing friends and coworkers who are running the New York City Marathon this weekend discussing their training regimens, literally aglow with fitness (yes, that's actually a thing that happens), has actually inspired me to investigate this whole marathon thing for myself. Specifically: Can a lifelong spectator suddenly become a participant?

    In a serendipitous twist, two books that firmly believe the answer is "yes" landed on my desk. I reached out to Dawn Dais, author of The Non-Runner's Marathon Guide for Women, and Alexandra Heminsley, author of Running Like a Girl: Notes on Learning to Run--who both went from self-declared non-runners to marathon-finishers--for some much-needed convincing that anyone can do it.

  • 10 Phrases Guys Can't Get Enough Of

    Turning your husband to mush doesn't require going all Kim Kardashian and Instagramming a photo of yourself in a skimpy bikini. Sometimes the warm and fuzzies are as simple as saying these words. By Anna Davies, REDBOOK.

    "Thank you."
    "These two words mean everything. I have buddies who complain that their wives nag them for what they don't do, and I always think about how much more effective it would be if those women would appreciate the things their husbands do do. When I hear 'Thank you,' even for something little like taking the trash out, I always remember to do it again." - Kevin, 30

    "Our child loves you so much."

    "My wife recently said that our 3-year-old's eyes light up when I come home, and it totally made my day. I know my daughter loves me, but she really loves her mommy, and sometimes I sort of wonder how well I'm doing at the whole parenting thing. Hearing about the bond she sees between my daughter and me made me realize I was doing okay after all." - Charles,

  • 5 Surefire Ways to Keep Your Relationship 50/50

    Your guy is great, except for a few little argh-worthy habits that have emerged over the years. But can your behavior fix his behavior--for the better? By Anna Davies, REDBOOK.

    Dates planned weeks in advance, surprise weekend getaways, flowers on your half-anniversary… you know your guy has the moves, or at least he used to. If you haven't seen them since the honeymoon period of your romance, that's normal, says relationship expert and The Problem With Women… is Men author Charles J. Orlando. "It's a cliché because it's true. Men relax when they're comfortable in a relationship." And it can be a slippery slope. "When one partner begins picking up the slack--even in something as minor as date-night planning--it can set a pattern that will only become more entrenched over time." In other words, fast forward a decade, and you aren't just picking the flick for movie night, you're giving him a tutorial on how to pick the kids up from school.

  • What Men Are Really Thankful For

    The Whys Guy probably shouldn't share this at the holiday table (after all, Grandma's got a weak ticker and has been drinking since noon), but he's ready to fill you in. By Aaron Traister, REDBOOK.

    As we gather around the turkey this year, many of us will reflect on what we're most grateful for. People will talk about health, love, and togetherness, new babies, old friends, and Duke, the family's beloved black Lab. It will be very special. But some blessings don't make the appropriateness cut for Thanksgiving dinner conversation. This is my unspoken gratitude list, and I bet your guy's isn't so different. We give thanks for:
