Halloween is the time of year we love to dress up in spook-tacular costumes. But unfortunately, some outfits are a bit too boo-tiful.

To me, what is truly terrifying is not the blood, gore and guts of the Halloween season. It’s the overly sexualized costumes that young girls – and no, I’m not talking frat college girls – tend to wear.

Everything from skimpy superhero costumes, to sexy witches, to shorter than short dresses and skirts, to sassy princesses, to suggestive takes on everyday uniforms, I am one mom who is SICK of girls being sexualized at Halloween.

And as it turns out, I’m not the only one upset about this fashion trend. A children’s advocate agrees it can even be harmful.

Here’s another reason to love Sarah Silverman!

Although there’s nothing funny about the gender wage gap, the outspoken comedienne, 43, has managed to humorously address the topic while promoting the Equal Payback Project.

In the funny, yet thought provoking video, Silverman proves she’ll stop at nothing to ensure she’s paid the same amount as her male counterparts — even if she has to surgically remove some of her own parts.

rs_600x600-141006041652-600.Kim-Zolciak-Tummy0Tuck-JR-100614_copy

Would you get a postpartum tummy tuck? Or have you?

As I approach the big 4-0 this March, I’ve come to realize the prevalence of post-baby elective surgeries.

Long gone are the days that plastic surgery is only for the rich and famous. As it turns out, I’ve seen an increase in tummy tucks, boob jobs and everything else amid my social circles.

Funny enough, here I am blogging about it!

Not to dish any gossip or secrets, but to express a heartfelt thanks to my lifelong pals.
