The strength of your marriage depends on the choices you make to improve it. Unfortunately, many couples have lost the spark they shared before they married and have replaced it with a humdrum routine. Dating and romancing your spouse can change those patterns, and can be a lot of fun, but will require some hard work. Planning and energy are imperative for making good times happen.

An ice cube tray is great for making miniature desserts, storing things like herbs or stock for easy use later on, and making unique ice cubes for cold drinks. Consider buying silicone ice cube trays; they make it easier to remove things when frozen.

Celebrities and models alike seem to have everything together. They've got their careers and their perfect bodies going for them. What if that all disappeared and these stars who we're all very familiar with were average people without the glitz and the glam?

A Clown in a Shower Bath by Emmett Kelly

We have to stop apologizing for our “stupid” ideas.  Too often in the creative industry do we hear, “This might be a stupid idea, but…”.  Stop it.  The best ideas stem from nonsense and aha! moments that frequently come from drunken rants, sarcastic shit-shooting, and our favorite: shower thoughts.  In honor of all of our stupid ideas, we’ve curated a list from reddit of the greatest shower thoughts of all time. / Wundervisuals

Producer’s note: Someone on Quora asked: How do you fight creative burnout? Here is one of the best answers that’s been pulled from the thread.

It kind of depends on what kind of burnout we’re talking about. These are the main kinds I experience:

I *cough* Have *cough* Been *cough* Sick *cough* FOREVER *cough […]* Burnout


A Russian schoolboy is in a tiff with his mom after winning a contest whose grand prize is living in a hotel for a month with a porn star.

The Mirror reports that Ruslan Schedrin, “said to be 16,” is simply over the moon to have won a month-long sleepover with adult film star Ekaterina Makarova a.k.a. Macy Ssens. He won this not as part of some sort of insane porn-watching challenge, but by being the 100,000th visitor to “a new website selling virtual arms for video games.” And they say American culture is pornified.

When asked: "How do you subtly mess with people?" this is what people had to say.

1. Holding the door open for a stranger while they are an awkwardly far distance away.

2. When you're talking to someone, instead of looking at their face, look at their ear.

1. Have a dance party in your living room and dance to your favorite songs from high school.

Blaire Dancing with Mom

Never in a million years did I think being a mom could redefine who I was. Never would I forget what my pre-mommy life was like. Yes, being a mom means I means I have to put someone else’s needs before your own. Yes, being a mom means I’m busier, more tired and more stressed than I have ever been in my life. But I’m also happier and more content than I ever thought possible. But could it redefine everything that makes me me? I didn’t think so. But the answer is yes. Yes it did.

Brownies are like that little black dress you reach for again and again – always reliable, sophisticated and absolutely irresistible. Add a layer of salted caramel sauce with a hint of cinnamon, and you quickly take the classic brownie to new heights.

While shopping at the mall recently I came across a sweatshirt that said “Feminism: The radical notion that women are people” printed boldly on the front. A few days later as I shopped on Forever 21, I found a shirt that boldly stated that the wearer was a ‘Feminist’.

1. Ease. There’s however many less clothes you need to wash each week because you just aren’t using them. You don’t have to buy pajamas.

2. It encourages you not to be a schlub. When you wear pajamas, pajama time can creep up earlier and earlier. Some people get into the terrible habit of changing into them as soon as they get home from work! And then you are a person who wears pajama pants and won’t leave the house because you’ve already taken off your work clothes. Sleeping in the nude means you can’t get ready for bed until you’re actually going to bed — and forces you to keep your nice clothes on until then.

Fact: Keanu Reeves does not age. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's take a look at some fun photos of celebrities posing next to the younger versions of themselves. Sure, the Photoshop work here is a bit shoddy but, of course, that's not the point. More than the average person, notice how celebrities appear so different when you compare their looks across the years. In fact, doesn't the younger version of Miley Cyrus seem so innocent and sweet?
