    I'm Delighted to Inform You That These 25 Myths About Turning 25 Just Aren't True

    What's with all the pressure around turning 25, anyways? I'm about to celebrate my 25th birthday, and I can't help but think (and laugh) about where I thought I'd be by this age. Married with kids? Yeah, right. When you're younger, 25 sounds so much older than what it actually is. Sure, I'm 25 - technically I can rent a car now, and supposedly my brain is fully developed - but I'm still allowed to be lost and make mistakes. No, I'm not in a serious relationship (sorry, Grandma), but I've been in enough to understand that you need to wholeheartedly love yourself first. I may not own a home or even rent an apartment that's picturesque, but I moved across the country for a cool job that I love. There's still a lot I have left to accomplish in my life, but for the 25 years I've had, I'd say I'm doing pretty well. Our world puts so much pressure on 25, and if I actually listened to it, I'd be a mess. Truth is, I'm going into 25 with no regrets. I'll probably celebrate with one too many drinks, you know, for a 25-year-old. Maybe I'll even text my ex to throw off my mid-20s maturity. The point is that, yes, 25 is a meaningful age as with any year around the sun. It's important to have goals and be a reasonably responsible human being, but if you feel "off track," it's because you're human, and tracks aren't a real thing. Embrace who you are and how you're feeling, and if you want to accomplish a goal, go after it, but do it for you, not because you're 25 and feel like you should. We're all where we're supposed to be, and turning a year older doesn't change that. If you're with me, keep reading for all the myths about turning 25.

    Dead to Me: Yep, the Coretta Cafe Exists and It's Just as Beautiful as It Looks on Screen

    Netflix's Dead to Me certainly has a dark plot, but its Southern California setting couldn't be more opposite. In fact, the roller coaster of Jen and Judy's relationship is the perfect contrast to their suburban West Coast lives. In season two, fans are introduced to an especially beautiful location for only a few minutes, but it certainly leaves an impact. I'm talking about the Coretta Cafe, owned by newcomer Michelle. Does the Coretta Cafe exist in real life? It sure does, but it's actually called Malibu Farm Restaurant. The eatery is located on the beach and the interior is tastefully decorated just as you see it in the show. No wonder Judy wanted to visit so badly! Like many restaurants right now, Malibu Farm is currently closed to dine-in guests. However, locals can still pick up takeout and the chefs also cook food for hospital workers. "It seems almost nostalgic to see people gathered together in our beautiful restaurant space," a restaurant representative said of the show. "Hopefully we will be able to re-create that environment soon." Related: Netflix Dropped a Dead to Me Drinking Game, and You Don't Have to Tell Us Twice

    I Test Tons of Hand Sanitizers, but This $12 Touchland Spray on Pre-Order Is the Best by Far

    Keeping my hands clean is obviously top of mind right now, so I took it upon myself to try several hand sanitizer brands this month. I wanted to find the very best one I could rely on. The best by far is by a new brand, and now I'm completely obsessed. This Touchland Power Mist Hand Sanitizer ($12) is both effective and pretty to look at - a pretty awesome combination. It's not harsh or goopy like most sanitizers; it comes in eight great scents like lavender, watermelon, vanilla cinnamon, and mint. "The dermatologist tested formula is packed with good-for-you ingredients like hydrating Aloe Vera and a blend of essential oils to leave hands soft and healthy," Touchland states. "Each mist contains 500+ spritzes to evenly eliminate 99.9 percent of harmful germs, and its lightweight formula absorbs quickly, never feels sticky and leaves your hands smelling great." But besides being an effective hand sanitizer, I also appreciate that the cool bottles can be left around the house without looking totally ugly. It's a nice change. These bottles are in crazy-high demand and on pre-order, so I suggest getting some as soon as you can - they'll ship in about a month. I have every single scent, and I can promise you, they're worth it. Related: I Always Use a Phone Sanitizer, and These Are the 5 Best Choices

    I Got Out the Worst Red-Wine Stain I've Ever Seen With This Unbelievable Spray

    Let me paint a picture for you: it's Sunday morning, and I'm getting ready for my daily workout. As I make my bed, the process of me fluffing the comforter knocks over the glass of red wine I had the night before, and it goes everywhere. My sheets are now soaking in Cabernet, and I start to panic. This is not a drop of red wine, this is a solid 1/4 of my white sheets. I am, in a word, devastated, and have resigned myself to going linen shopping, until my mom shows me this Unbelievable Pro Stain and Odor Remover ($15). Reader, this product is magical. I sprayed it all over the stain, waited 60 seconds for the product to soak in, scrubbed at the stain a bit, and then bathed the sheets in a mixture of water and bleach. When I pulled out the sheets, there was no stain. I'm telling you, nothing. They looked as if nothing happened to them. I'm convinced this is pure sorcery, but I'm not mad about it. Once that was done, I threw them in the wash, and my sheets look good as new. I wish I had a before and after to show you, but in the midst of my tears I did not take a photo, so you'll just have to take my word for it. Red wine drinkers, I have two important takeaways. Don't take your wine to bed with you, and always make sure you have Unbelievable spray on hand. Related: FYI, Winc Wine Delivery Is Offering $20 Off Your First Box, So Let's Get Drinking

    I Love Using UV Light Sanitizers, and This One For My Toothbrush Is Genius

    A few years ago, I purchased a UV light sanitizer for my phone, and it has been one of the best investments I've ever made. I later went on to buy an even larger version for my tablet, keys, and so much more. One thing I always wished I could sanitize more often was my toothbrush. I think we often forget how much bacteria traditional bristles can harbor, and I mean, we're supposed to be using them to clean, right?! During a recent online browse on Urban Outfitters' site, I came across the UVNIA UV Toothbrush Sterilizer ($25) and knew I needed it. The sterilizer is made with UV-C LED lights, and in just three minutes, it can throughly clean your toothbrush. The compact design is what really sold me. It's small enough to pop onto your toothbrush in your bathroom without taking up more room. Plus, it's an easy way to travel with your toothbrush and clean it at the same time. Need more convincing?

    This Is the Phone Sanitizer I Always Use and It’s Game Changer

    A few years ago I heard the scary statistic that your phone carries 18 times more bacteria than a public toilet - and it was frightening. I was tempted to start wiping mine down with a sanitizing wipe, but that can actually be damaging to your device. Then a friend recommended that I try a UV light sanitizer for my phone, at the time it seemed like a wild new concept, but now it's something I use all the time. I bought the Phonesoap Smartphone UV Sanitizer ($80) originally on Amazon (it's currently sold out), but it's now avliable for pre-order on the brand's website. Why is it so great? The game-changing device first gained attention on the ABC show Shark Tank and the double-duty cleaner features a convenient USB port so you also charge while using it. The brand boasts that the UV light kills 99.9 percent of bacteria, which is also great for your skin and can help prevent pesky breakouts. It even goes beyond cleaning just your phone; anything that can fit can be cleaned, from your credit cards to a smart watch. I've used it for years and the peace of mind from having a clean phone has been so nice, plus the device is beyond easy to use. Simply put your phone inside and 10 minutes later, it's clean. A light will turn off so you know when it's ready. It has become the new popular device everyone around me is interested in. My houseguests and coworkers constantly ask me where it's from and I always recommenced it to others. Keep scrolling to see all the cool colors and accessories from the brand.

    30 Little Luxuries to Make Self-Isolating Away From Home More Comfortable

    Picture this: it's the second week of March and I'm about to head home for a quick trip to California. I've planned on visiting my hometown to ring in my grandmother's birthday, and then heading to San Francisco to work out of the office there and see some of my colleagues. It's the night before my flight and while the coronavirus pandemic has already made waves in the U.S., things are still relatively normal. I stuff my tiny pink carry-on suitcase with one pair of pajamas, a couple blouses for work, a pair of Levi's, and a handful of travel-size skincare products. As I get ready for bed, I can't help but think about some of the most recent articles I read about the outbreak. While there were no city- or state-wide stay-at-home orders at the time, I didn't realize how soon they would be put in place. And if I had known, I would have packed for a completely different trip, and in a much larger suitcase. By Friday afternoon, I had landed in California and already canceled my trip to SF. The POPSUGAR offices had been closed for the foreseeable future, and the city was given a stay-at-home order. I contemplated going back home to New York later that week, but seeing how fast the virus was spreading there, I decided it was best to stay where I was. So, my carry-on suitcase and I set up shop at my parents' house. When I started college almost six years ago, I cleared everything out of my parents' house - and when I say everything, I mean that there wasn't even an old tube of mascara waiting for me in my bathroom drawer. For the first couple of days, wearing my high-waisted Levi's and the one t-shirt I had seemed to do. I borrowed my mom's workout clothes when I went on runs and threw on an old sweatshirt that used to belong to one of my sister's ex-boyfriends from high school when I settled in for a movie night. As the days - and now subsequent weeks - ticked on, I knew the time had come to reaffirm my wardrobe and skincare supply. The travel-size beauty products were down to their last few drops and my friends had already noticed that I was wearing the same sweatshirt the last three times they saw me on FaceTime. So, I decided to buy some little luxuries that would make my time at my parents' feel more like home. For many, relocating somewhere that's not their home (parents' house, partner's place, vacation rental, etc.) during the coronavirus is fairly common. Since there's no clear end-date in sight as to when life will go back to normal, packing accordingly has basically gone out the window. From stay-at-home goodies to dreamy wellness products, these are the items I bought to make my time in self-isolation more enjoyable. If you're like me and didn't pack right, shop my favorite picks that will keep you comfortable and feeling just at home, no matter how far you may be.
