Kylie Jenner Flaunts Curves in Form-Fitting Chanel Mini Dress 5 Months After Giving Birth

Kylie Jenner continues to document her post-baby body transformation on social media, and her latest post already has over 4,000,000 likes. The new mom and soon-to-be billionaire shared a photo of her famous curves in a form-fitting dress on Instagram five months after welcoming daughter Stormi.

The reality star and Kylie Cosmetics mogul, 20, shared a classic mirror selfie wearing a curve-hugging strapless Chanel mini dress printed with the brand’s iconic double C logo all over.

Jenner also appears to have added a set of chest-length extensions to her hair after rocking her natural hair in a chic bob style for the past few weeks.

Although she did not caption her initial Instagram photo, Jenner shared an even closer-up view of her dress on her Instagram Story while sitting inside her car, adding in five black heart emoji alongside it.

The star’s older sister (and fellow new mom!) Khloé Kardashian complimented Jenner’s hot bod in the comments writing, “Wowwwwwwwww.”

Even though Jenner admitted her body “bounced back super fast” since welcoming her daughter in February, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star still struggled with her share of post-baby body insecurities.

“I feel like people think that I bounced back super fast, which I guess I did,” Jenner remarked in a video posted on her YouTube page, before adding that “people can get the wrong idea on Instagram sometimes.”

She described the most significant ways her body has changed, explaining “My boobs are defiantly three times the size, which bothers me. I have stretch marks on my boobs. My stomach isn’t the same, my waist isn’t the same, my butt’s bigger, my thighs bigger.”

“And honestly, I’m finding I have to change my style a little because nothing in my closet fits me from before,” she continued.

In March, Jenner revealed that she gained a total of 40 lbs. during pregnancy in a now-deleted tweet during a Q&A session with fans and followers. That same month, Jenner said she started up waist training again to get her body back.

The star gave fans their first glimpse at her post-baby body just one month after giving birth in a Snapchat clip wearing underwear and pulling up her black shirt to reveal how her body looked from a side angle.

Sources previously told PEOPLE that Jenner is determined to get back into pre-pregnancy shape because she wants to be a “really hot young mom.”

“Kylie is already starting to work out,” an insider said. “She’s focusing on getting her body back and also getting back to a comfortable weight aside from caring for Stormi,” adding that she “wasn’t the most comfortable while pregnant.”

Cabi, The Giving Keys Partner to Do Good

Women’s social selling retailer Cabi has found a new way to support its Heart of Cabi Foundation to help others.
Cabi’s foundation has existed since 2005, but this year the retailer partnered with inspirational jewelry brand The Giving Keys to collaborate on a design for Cabi’s fall collection.
Called the Tribute Necklace, it features a golden key inscribed with the word “Better” and a silver key inscribed with the word “Together.” The keys are meant to symbolize the power of community and in-person experiences that unite women. Each key sits on its own chain, and the two can be worn together or separately.
The necklace will be shown on the retailer’s site beginning on Saturday, but won’t be available for purchase until Aug. 1. Buyers can reach out to their Cabi stylist to purchase the $ 89 necklace. A portion from each sale will go to Cabi’s foundation so it can be invested in women’s causes around the globe.
So far, the foundation has distributed $ 50 million in apparel to women in communities affected by natural disasters, and has funded 12,800 small business loans to women across 62 developing countries to enable them to work their way out of poverty.

Why Does Kate Middleton Leave the Hospital So Soon After Giving Birth?

Kate Middleton only gave birth to her third child a few hours ago — but she’s likely already gearing up to head back home to Kensington Palace.

Why does Kate make such a quick exit? In the U.S., new mothers average two days in the hospital before heading home. However, in the U.K., new moms average a day and a half — the shortest postpartum hospital stays of any high-income country, according to a 2016 article in The Guardian. Though Kate did spent the night after giving birth to Prince George in 2013, she left less than 10 hours after welcoming Princess Charlotte in 2015.

“The length of time a woman spends in hospital will vary depending on their needs,” Louise Silverton, the director for Midwifery at the Royal College of Midwives, told The Guardian. “Midwives need to check to make sure women feel up to going home. However, provided the woman is medically fine, has the support she needs at home and the right postnatal care plan in place, and a good community midwife service, then going home even five or six hours after birth may be absolutely fine.”

Another reason for Kate’s quick exit — one that’s entirely unique to her — is the sheer frenzy her presence causes at the hospital.  Fans camp out for weeks outside and parking restrictions are put in place. Kate, of course, is not the only mother giving birth at the Lindo Wing, and the activity and noise would overwhelming for anyone.

If Kate goes home to Kensington Palace today, help is only a phone call away if needed. Members of her medical team are likely on stand-by in case Kate or her new baby boy needs anything.

But there’s one big moment to go before they head home: Just before leaving the hospital, we’ll get a glimpse of the littlest royal on the steps of the Lindo Wing with proud parents Kate and William.

Gucci Unveils Gift Giving Campaign for Holiday Season

HAPPY NEW GUCCI: Gucci is embracing the holiday season by unveiling its latest Gift Giving product selection and campaign, which will be extensively supported by digital activities.
Spanning many categories – ranging from T-shirts and footwear to handbags, jewelry, children’s wear and even porcelain items – the product selection is at the core of a new art book released by the house in collaboration with Spanish artist Ignasi Monreal.
Monreal designed a series of digitally-created artworks incorporating Gucci products and developing a narrative inspired by the story of the fall of Icarus.
“Icarus fascinates me because of his story, which could be read a bit like a mantra,” said Monreal.
“If you fly too close to the sun, you’re going to get burned. If you fly too low, you’re going to drown in the sea. It feels quite bluntly obvious, but I find it quite timeless, and reassuring. You have to find the middle point to land on the other side,” he continued, pointing at the “tricky human condition.” The artist also defined the mythological character as “very romantic and of course symbolic of everything young and pretty. Very East London.”
Illustrations in the book include belt-bags encircling a classical statue, small leather goods set in a contemporary, Renaissance-inspired

Japan’s Princess Mako Giving up Her Royal Status to Marry Commoner She Met at School

Many would dream about living a life of royalty. But could one give it all up for love?

That’s what Japan’s Princess Mako is doing right now.

The 25-year-old eldest daughter of Prince Akishino and granddaughter of Emperor Akihito will give up her royal status to marry Kei Komuro — a graduate student who works at a law firm.

The Imperial Household says plans for the two to become engaged are currently underway, CNN reported.

Komuro, 25, is a royal of sorts himself. He once starred in a beach tourism campaign for the city of Fujisawa — where he was named the “Prince of the Sea.”

“When the right time comes, I’d like to talk about it,” he told reporters in a press conference on Wednesday, the Associated Press reported

The couple met while attending a study-abroad event at a restaurant in Shibuya — a district in Tokyo — about five years ago, NHK TV reported. Both students at the International Christian University in Tokyo at the time, they have seen each other several times a month since, Mako has even introduced Komuro to her parents.

As Japanese nuptials for a royal family member are highly ritualized, the couple will likely take some time before their wedding, the AP reported. Up first? A public announcement — expected sometime next month — then a wedding date, followed by a formal report to the emperor and empress.

Though Mako will be considered a commoner once she marries, her opportunity to ascend to the Chrysanthemum Throne is limited, as the position is only passed to male heirs.

Of the 19 members of the current imperial family, only three males are left. Mako’s uncle Crown Prince Naruhito is expected to succeed Emperor Akihito — with her father and her younger brother following Naruhito in line.

RELATED VIDEO: How Princess Kate Is Changing the Royal Parenting Rules

Since her graduation, Mako’s Imperial family duties have included a role as an honorary patron of the Japan Tennis Association and an affiliate researcher at the University Museum of the University of Tokyo, The Japan News reported.

Mako isn’t the only Japanese royal to give up her title for love. Her aunt Sayako — the only daughter of Emperor Akhito — did so in 2005 when she married town planner Yoshiki Kuroda.

Last summer, Emperor Akhito, an 83-year-old cancer survivor, said he was worried about the burden his age and health might take on his role in the future.

“When I consider that my fitness level is gradually declining, I am worried that it may become difficult for me to carry out my duties as the symbol of the State with my whole being as I have done until now,” he said, CNN reported.

Ballet Hispánico Is Giving Latino Artists A Voice They Deserve

A small number of residents from Manhattan’s Upper West Side gathered in a community garden on Tuesday to watch as members of Ballet Hispánico posed for a photo shoot. The dancers were dressed in the costumes they’ll wear onstage at the Joyce Theater later this month, where they’ll be performing three works by Latina choreographers, all of whom are women. 

Founded in 1970, Ballet Hispánico defines itself as a community-building institution dedicated to exploring the diversity of Latino culture, involving dancers and choreographers from Venezuela, Cuba, Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Spain, Brazil, Argentina and Colombia in a mix of classical, Latin and contemporary dance. This year, its New York Season will not only celebrate the depth of expression found in the various corners of Latin America, it will shine light on the women creating art in a traditionally male-dominated field.

“Ballet Hispánico was born out of the need to give voice to Latino/Latina artists at a time when they did not have a strong presence in mainstream performing arts,” Eduardo Vilaro, the artistic director of Ballet Hispánico since 2009, told The Huffington Post. Today, the company is taking its mission a step further, by choosing to honor the female choreographers who are seizing positions of leadership in dance: Michelle Manzanales, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and Tania Pérez-Salas.

“It is imperative that we nurture and give voice to those who may not have opportunities within the field,” Vilaro added. “By nurturing and celebrating the work of these Latina artists, Ballet Hispánico hopes to contribute to the process of making the dance field more equitable.”

Vilaro’s sense of duty to marginalized voices is heightened, he says, by the company’s 46-year legacy in New York City. Since the 2015 opening of Ballet Hispánico’s Arnhold Center on 89th Street ― with its unmistakable banners and open windows ― the organization has embarked on a five-year plan to nurture its relationship with the neighborhood it calls home. It’s doing so by hosting free performances, outdoor events and Hispanic heritage celebrations. Judging by the public’s captivation upon seeing dancers like Melissa Fernandez and Lyvan Verdecia leaping in front of a nearby parking garage, local interest is pronounced.

“The photo shoot certainly underlined the magic and richness of culture that Ballet Hispánico brings to the Upper West Side,” Vilaro added. “It is our duty to continue this legacy and build upon it as we navigate the terrain of today’s immigrant and race relations and the new challenges that our communities face.”

Ahead of the company’s April 18 debut at the Joyce, HuffPost’s Damon Dahlen ventured to the Upper West Side to photograph members of Ballet Hispánico in the familiar spaces just beyond its front doors. Check out images of Fernandez, Verdecia and other members of the company paying tribute to their neighborhood in the best way they know how: through dance.

Ballet Hispánico’s 2017 New York Season at the Joyce Theater will take place April 18-23, featuring “Con Brazos Abiertos” by Michelle Manzanales, “Línea Recta” by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and “Catorce Dieciséis” by Tania Pérez-Salas.

Why Naya Rivera Regrets Dyeing Her Hair a Month After Giving Birth: ‘Don’t Buy Into the Mommy Makeover!’

When former Glee actress Naya Rivera became pregnant with her first son, 18-month-old Josey, she expected “to grow the best mane of hair” from the pregnancy hormones. But for her – and tons of other new moms – just the opposite happened.

“That did not happen at all. After breastfeeding, what I was left with was breakage in certain areas from the drop in hormones,” says Rivera, who just partnered with the haircare brand Nioxin as its celebrity ambassador. “It was definitely thin on the ends and certain places like my widow’s peak would be a little more up in my face.”

RELATED PHOTOS: UPDATED! Celeb Hair Makeovers: Better Before or After?

Just a month after giving birth, the actress decided to get bright blonde highlights in her hair to give herself a boost of confidence from the hair thinning — but warns other moms not to do the same.

“I did probably the worst thing you could do in that situation, which is then go dye it,” she told us. “I made the problem worse and paid the price for that. I’d tell new moms, ‘Don’t dye it yet!’ Don’t buy into the whole mommy makeover thing, because you will regret it.”

She attempted to treat her hair breakage and thinning with anything she could think of. “I was trying everything from carrot seed oil on a hairbrush to full-blown coconut oil treatments every single day. I even went back on my prenatals long after I had stopped breastfeeding to try to get back whatever juices were flowing out of my body,” Rivera said.

But it wasn’t until her friend introduced her to Nioxin’s thickening shampoo that she started to see a difference. “I started to see results and experimenting with a bunch of their other products,” the star said, which is why her partnership with the brand seemed like a natural, organic fit.

Now, almost two years after Josey was born, Rivera said she finally feels like she’s getting back into her “hair groove” and embracing her natural color instead of using extensions and dying it so often.

“I just feel like it’s healthy again. I stopped dyeing it and cutting it and experimenting with all these different things,” she said. “I sort of went back to my roots if you will, and I am happier that way.”

Emma Stone and the SNL Ladies Nail a Song About Awkwardness of Casual Holiday Gift Giving

‘Tis the season — for digging through your closet for present to regift.

The ladies of Saturday Night Live along with host Emma Stone served up a completely relatable tune about the peril of swapping holiday gifts with casual acquaintances and the one item that always fills the void: a candle.

In the style of a ’90s music video, the SNL cast chronicled the journey of a peach-scented candle as it changes hands from one struggling gift giver to another.

But Aidy Bryant also gives a warning not to undermine the value of the present by pairing it with another little goody.

She sings, “When you give a candle that is all that she needs, don’t pair it with the lotion or some little cream. A lot of people think two gifts are better than one, but that just makes each seem smaller and dumb.”

What Did You Say? The Art of Giving and Receiving Feedback

Offering opinions is the second most necessary ingredient for human life.

You’ll enjoy the “read” so much that you may not realize how much you have gained – all in words of one syllable! How to offer feedback when asked (or hired) to do so. Why feedback tells more about the giver than the receiver. How feedback is distorted or resisted by the receiver’s point of view and defense mechanisms. And in dozens of enjoyable vignettes, how humans have struggled to understand each others’ responses.

You Have Giving All Wrong

Think you are a giver? If you do, most likely you have it all wrong. I know I did, until recently.

Giving has always meant, to me, being able to give a gift or listen to someone by giving my time and energy. But I had no idea the path I would take — as a result of one simple idea I had — that would fundamentally change my outlook on life.

Late last year, I decided I was going to give something away each day of 2015. I was inspired by all the giving that was taking place from the end of November through the end of the year and I didn’t want it to end. There we so many stories that touched my heart, and just about every person and brand had some element of giving happening. I didn’t want it to stop. I wanted to live in a world where giving wasn’t attached to a time of year.

I imagined how I could give something away every day and created a project and called it #365DaysOfGiving. I invited people to be part of it by receiving an email from me each day in which I would offer to give something away. I launched it and waited to see what happened along the way.


It has been 223 days since the launch and the lessons I’ve learned, so far, have been many. Perhaps the biggest lesson is that it isn’t about what I am giving away that people respond to but the stories I share as to why I am giving it away. Responses like this come in regularly:

This email in particularly resonated with me because I am currently gaining clarity on who I am and recently realized that I had stop waiting for others to choose me, and choose myself.

It wasn’t until the last 30 days that I’ve realized we have giving all wrong.

Learn to receive in order to give.

Early in the year, I had about a dozen people receiving my emails. Even though I was offering something every day, many items went unclaimed. I was crushed. How could I give something away if nobody was receiving what I offered? I started to realize that the act of receiving was as much a part of the process as giving was. To give, someone must receive. The feeling you get from giving feels so good because you know there is another person who receives what you give. In other words, they are actually giving you something by receiving. You both end up being a receiver and a giver regardless of who started the process. In giving, both parties walk away receiving. And many people don’t know how to receive. That’s what I learned.

Taking is not receiving.

One of the main reasons people told me they didn’t want to receive what I was giving away, was because the felt like they were acting like a taker and not a giver. After reading Adam Grant’s book Give and Take, where he classifies people into three groups: givers, takers and matchers, I felt like you were either one or the other, a giver or a taker, not both. But then I had a conversation that made me realize, taking and receiving are two different things. When you take, you gain and someone loses. When you receive, both parties end up gaining something. it’s not give and take, it’s give and receive.

To give is to love.

That feeling you receive when you give something is better than getting money. It’s difficult to put into words because it’s an emotion and not logical or rational. I was at the Gratitude and Trust Summit in NYC this summer and heard one of the speakers talk about the Hebrew word for love, ahavah, which also means to give. This explained it! To give is to love. It’s an emotion and feeling that transcends words. Here is to a world of living to give and love in receiving.

Please join me in #365DaysOfGiving by signing up to receive what I give away each day. And if you give something and recognize that you are also receiving, share the experience using the hashtag #365DaysOfGivng. To give is to love. To love is to give.

This Runway Collection Is Giving Us Major Game of Thrones Vibes

Tonight’s Valentino fall 2015 couture collection reminded us that winter is coming.

The show, which took place in Rome, featured regal, moody looks that just screamed Game of Thrones. While it hasn’t been confirmed that designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are GoT fans, we bet that Cersei, Sansa, Margaery and Daenarys would totally be fans of them. We took the liberty of suggesting gowns from the collection for each of the leading ladies in anticipation of season six.

1. Cersei

Last time we checked in with Cersei, she came back to the palace and she was pretty angry. This embellished gown in emerald and black with feather detail says: “I’m the ruler and I’m gorgeous—now, off with his head!”

2. Margaery

Prison could never stop Margaery of the House Tyrell (and reigning queen!) from being stylish and sexy. This quintessential Margaery silhouette with plunging neckline is more somber than the usual, but no less fetching.

3. Sansa

Little Sansa is growing up. Do they have sweet sixteen parties in the North? If so, she would look divine in this lace number.

4. Daenaerys

The Mother of Dragons could always use another cape. And look! This one has a gold embroidery of her baby! How sweet.

Hilaria Baldwin Posts Underwear Selfie Two Days After Giving Birth

Just two days after giving birth to her son Rafael, Hilaria Baldwin shared an underwear selfie on Instagram, and she looks amazing.

In the shot, Alec Baldwin’s wife is seen posing in front of a mirror while wearing a lacy bra and a pair of black briefs. The brunette beauty also included the following heartfelt caption with her photo:

“Update on us… Rafael is doing wonderfully! He is two days old now. Such a sweet little boy. I’m feeling well, been up with him every hour to two hours. I have been planning on doing post belly photos but didn’t know if I was gonna have the guts to actually follow through. I hope you understand my intention here: I believe it is important to accept and love our form after going through a bit of a battle bringing life into this world. Deep breath, here we go…all the way from my glamorous hospital bathroom. #ShrinkingBaldwinBabyBump #NoShame #LoveYourBody”

The mother of two’s photo was met with plenty of support from her followers, who left comments calling her “brave” for “being honest about post-baby bodies,” and thanking her for sharing a positive message.

Hilaria gave birth to her second child with Alec on June 17. The pair are also parents to daughter Carmen, and Hilaria is stepmother to Alec’s 19-year-old daughter Ireland, from his marriage to Kim Basinger.

21 Things To Stop Giving A Shit About In 2015

As we enter a new year, there are many things to keep in mind: mantras to live by, resolutions to make, new goals to set. But January is also a great time to take stock of the things we’re wasting time, energy and stress on, and to, in the oft-quoted words of Elsa from “Frozen”: “Let it go.”

Below are 21 things we are going to stop giving a shit about in 2015. What would you add?

1. Juice cleanses. Let’s call a spade a spade and acknowledge that cleansing is less about health than about quick weight loss — and if that’s really your goal, there are healthier, longer-lasting ways to go about it. Solid foods FTW.

2. Wearing matching socks. One day we may find the land of lost single socks. But today is not that day.

3. Making plans with people you don’t actually want to see, to do things you don’t want to do. Obligation relationships aren’t good for anyone. And even if someone you adore is inviting you out, if you’d rather eat your own hand than go clubbing, it’s probably best to just say no.

4. People who don’t understand why Queen Bey’s feminism is important. Bye, haters.

5. Worrying about finding “the one.” More doing fun things, less stressing about one’s single status.

6. Breaking the Internet. If it ain’t broke, why break it?

7. Getting tons of “likes” on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram. Better to ‘gram your avocado toast and sunsets for your own enjoyment, “likes” be damned.

8. Anything “Princeton Mom” says. Single ladies don’t need her brand of “straight talk.” Neither do rape survivors, or any other women, for that matter.

9. FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). We’d rather focus on truly enjoying the things we are doing.

10. Being embarrassed about wearing yoga pants in public. Look, they’re comfy.

11. Losing that last five pounds. So many things taste better than skinny feels.

12. Wearing shoes that aren’t comfortable. Hobbling around in pain makes any experience about 100x less pleasant.

13. Worrying that a romantic relationship doesn’t check all the boxes on every “179,000 Ways To Know You’re In The Right Relationship” list on the Internet.

14. Feeling guilty about going to bed early. True love means never having to apologize for your REM cycles.

15. Feeling guilty about staying in bed late on a weekend day. Clearly, we just really love sleep.

16. Not “putting yourself out there” in ways that your (well-meaning) friends and family think you should be. If there’s something truly worth “getting out” for, you’ll be motivated.

17. Eating gluten-free. Unless, of course, you are actually allergic to gluten.

18. Planning something *~#epic~* for every birthday. Embrace simplicity. Day drinking at a bar or BBQing at a park can be just as fun (if not more fun) than having an expensive 28-person dinner followed by five other complicated activities.

19. Walking more Fitbit steps each day than your Fitbit “friends.” Exercise is wonderful for your physical and mental health. We’d rather use that as the motivation than competing with or “beating” our friends.

20. People who don’t give a shit about you. Again… bye, haters.

21. Trying to make everyone happy all of the time. Do what you can, and forgive yourself the rest. And perhaps take some time to focus on making yourself happy.

Happy 2015, y’all!

Heels Giving You the Pinch? Charlotte Dellal Shows How to Dress Up Your Flats and Still Look Festive!


We all love how heels look, but sometimes, no matter how much we hate admitting it, they pinch. As a designer and mother, Charlotte Dellal, designer of her namesake label Charlotte Olympia, loves heels with all her heart but definitely sees flats as a sartorial necessity. She creates for the modern woman’s wardrobe, telling us, “being at work full time and a mother of three, I like to design flats that can be dressed up or dressed down; whether I am at the office, in a meeting, picking up my boys from school, or running around after them in the park.” Moreover, Charlotte draws inspiration from her own life and says, “I love to give my collections a soul and a story. I love collecting beautiful things and I translate this by transforming everyday objects into something wearable.”

Though originally known for her sky-high heels (and we really do mean sky-high!), Charlotte introduced her first Kitty flats with her fall 2011 “To Die For” collection (inspired by the Agatha Christie novels of the 1930s) and they have been a staple ever since. Initially, Charlotte tells us, “The idea was to create a shoe inspired by a men’s smoking slipper as typically worn in those days. I wanted to make it more feminine and flirty like a cat; I turned the traditionally high-cut vamp into ears and replaced the classic embroidered monogram with a feline face. The ‘Kitty’ is now a signature style and returns each season updated to suit the mood of the collection.” She has even recently come out with a Kitty & Co Collection, giving each cat-inspired flat a unique expression and personality.


As a Kitty flats lover, Charlotte appreciates the necessity for flats to be dressed up or down and tries to translate that into the designs of her iconic flats. Though her favorites are the classic red leopard Bisoux style flats, claiming, “I am never without red lips or leopard print, so [these] shoes are everything I love wrapped into one!” Charlotte also sings the praises of a classic black flat, telling us, “my black velvet signature Kitty flats are very easy to wear, they look equally good with jeans or with a little dress.” And we couldn’t agree more!

Can’t wait to click your heels together and be instantly transported to Charlotte’s world? Shop some of our current favorites among the iconic Kitty flats below!

Healthy Belly without Giving Up the Good Foods

Healthy Belly without Giving Up the Good Foods

You’d love to have a flat belly for the party tonight, but thanks to one too many sodas or that basket of tortilla chips, zipping your pants is a real struggle. Abdominal bloating not only looks bad but can also cause physical discomfort. The good news? Experts say stomach bloating is a condition you can avoid pretty easily.   Unless your stomach bloating is caused by a medical condition such as liver or heart disease, the only real cause is intestinal gas – not “water weight.”   It is a myth that bloating in the stomach is from fluid accumulation in healthy adults, because the abdomen is not a place where fluids accumulate first,” Jensen says. “Instead, you would see it in your feet or ankles as long as you are upright.

8 Lessons I Have Learned Since Giving Up Television

The day my cable was turned off for good, I was lying on my bed in the midst of the afternoon watching a reality show about people with odd sexual compulsions. As the cable guy cut my connection, a guy describing his fetish for smelly feet was interrupted mid-sentence.

“God took my cable away,” I texted my daughter.

I was joking, but, honestly, my obsession with TV had gotten out of hand, and while I’m sure there are some quality programs on television, I wasn’t watching any of them. In 2011, I had watched the entire Casey Anthony trial on CNN, and even though we lived hundred of miles from the nearest ocean, it was not unusual for me to spend a whole evening staring at maps of potential hurricane paths on The Weather Channel. And as if that weren’t enough, lately, I had become fascinated with reality shows like Honey Boo-Boo, 19 Kids And Counting, Hoarders, Breaking Amish and Sister Wives. These shows had made me feel better about myself — more clever, more classy, more together.

I might be moving from a gray Cape Cod in the country to a rustic cabin in the woods with no cable access, but at least I did not have a family of dead cats lying underneath the pile of open food cans in the midst of my living room. I did not eat laundry detergent. I had not yet been the subject of an intervention, drug related or otherwise. I did not eat spaghetti noodles doused in ketchup and butter. I had not been shunned. I did not have to drag nineteen children with me everywhere I went. And I certainly did not have to pretend to be pleased when my husband expressed his undying affection for another woman.

Though learning to live without television was a challenge at first, just last month, we passed the second anniversary of our new life here at the cabin, and at the risk of sounding overly hippyish, I thought this might be a good time to pause and reflect on some things I have learned and to offer a few nuggets of wisdom to those considering cutting their own cable connections:

1. I have figured out that one does not need to watch The Weather Channel regularly to know what the weather is going to be like. I have figured out that generally one can just walk outside and look at the sky and get a good idea of what’s ahead for the day.

2. I no longer mindlessly peruse quasi news channels thinking that I am getting actual news, and I no longer watch the disturbing stories of celebrities unfold before me ad nauseum because I find these stories to be, well, disturbing. I do not know what celebrity has just been arrested for shoplifting, whose spouse just slept around, who is in rehab or who is eerily thin. I have just so much emotional energy to give, and now I can expend that energy on people I actually know who have legal troubles or marital problems or addiction issues or eating disorders.

3. It has been two years since anyone has even tried to talk to me about The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. Same with American Idol or any of those shows imitating American Idol. In fact, people actually stop discussing those things when I walk in a room. Enough said.

4. I’ve got to admit that the Olympics were hard. As was the World Cup and every other major sporting event. Everyone is always talking about sports, especially at bars where sports are always on big screen TV’s and sometimes on multiple screens, but my advice for those televsionless folks trying to maintain some sort of social connectivity during major sporting events is to simply drink more beer. That way, you will be at a bar when the television is on and can quickly catch up to speed. Another option is to take up a sport of your own so that while everyone else is sitting around drinking beer and watching sports, you can actually be out longboarding or free climbing or what have you.

5. I no longer begin sentences with the words, “I was up late last night watching…” If I happened to be up late last night, I was (1) reading, (2) writing, (3) cuddling my Dachshund who is afraid of thunderstorms or (4) cuddling my husband who is not afraid of thunderstorms. In any case, there is not nearly enough of that sort of thing happening in the world today, and now that I no longer mindlessly watch television, I have more time for all of those things.

6. Like major sporting events, the Oscars and the Emmys are a problem. Everyone is watching, and everyone is tweeting about them, and, sure, it’s a little like being back in high school, and everyone you know is talking about some party that you weren’t invited to. For advice on coping, please see #4.

7. Back when I had television, I used to spend a lot of time worrying about the what ifs. What if we have a major earthquake here in North Carolina? What if one of my friends gets a nose job that collapses? What if one of my young adult children suddenly joins a cult? What if my husband has a whole other family in another state and one day fakes his own death in order to be with them? Now, I take long walks with my Lab. I feed Vanilla Wafers to my goats. I pick wild blueberries and roses. I sit outside at a local brewery and drink Dale’s Pale Ale while I watch other people’s kids play corn hole. And somehow being outside and doing simple things makes me feel more in touch with the here and now and less concerned with the hypothetical.

8. I have taken up some new hobbies. I ride my bike — a lot. I hike. I make my own goat cheese and cream cheese, ferment my own yogurt. I grow my own kale and bake my own whey pies. I am learning about jazz and blues, and I have signed up for a poetry class and for contra dance lessons. The point is, when you are not watching television and thinking about inane things like how on earth someone could give birth nineteen times and still be walking around or how a human being could not notice she had a cat carcass rotting on her living room floor, your world opens up a bit, and suddenly you realize that even if you don’t want to make your own yogurt or pen your own chapbook, maybe, just maybe, there is something else out there for you to discover.
