Where the fuck did my abs and clear skin go? Is it weird to say that I felt prettier when I was at my old college? Idk what it was but I just felt more comfortable in my skin and clothes.

I miss wearing skull crusher boots, blue lipstick and having purple hair. I feel happiest when I am daring, but lately my style has been so shy and it makes me sad. How can I get out of this artistic self expression rut?

The iconic home from ‘Full House’ was bought by the show’s creator, Jeff Franklin, 30 years after the first episode was filmed. When it came on the market, he knew he had to buy it and keep it in the family. He also wanted to 'preserve it for the fans’, so he re-painted the door red, used it to film new episodes for the debut of 'Fuller House’, and plans to keep it as a rental. Source
