Rejoice! Because it's finally no-shaving season… or in other words, it's tights season!

Not having to care about what your legs look like is one of the reasons we love winter, but we'll be honest; wearing black tights day in, day out can get pretty boring.

Tights -Mary Poppins inspiered- In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun - tights -Beige footless

So, why not have a book on them?

Yep, TightShop on Etsy is selling tights with book quotes on them, from Harry Potter to Game of Thrones and even Romeo and Juliet.

Winnie the Pooh - Tights - printed Quotes - printed tights - text tights - Available in variaty of colors

So whether you fancy having a little read on your daily commute or have a bookworm in your life that would LOVE a pair, they'll come in handy over the next few months.

We think the Winnie the Pooh ones are SO cute.

Love her or hate her, Kim K is everywhere. And sometimes she says some pretty enlightening and hilarious things, like these:

1. “I hate when women wear the wrong colour foundation, it might be the worst thing on the planet when they wear their make-up too light”

2. “[Taking selfies] is the purpose of life”

3. “If Paris Hilton thinks my butt looks gross I really don’t care. At least I have a butt”

4. [On Kylie] “You have to look at her Tumblr. It’s just like, so her soul”

5. “I buy myself a gift every year, so this year I bought everything I wanted”

6. [On the prospect of dating Gerald Butler] “How about barf”

7. “I have this, like, sixth sense where I can smell if someone has a cavity”

8. “I also ordered pizza and Chinese food because I couldn’t decide”

9. “I’ll cry at the end of the day, not with fresh make-up”

10. “You are just jealous that you can’t get a Bentley and you’re trying to ruin my moment for me”

We can all admit that Kim sometimes says exactly what we're thinking…keep it real, Kimmy.

Love them or hate them – these words and quotes made up our entire year.

From strange beginnings in viral videos, or celebs' wacky wording, it’s been a hell of a year for colloquial quips.

Here are our favourites:

1. Sorry not sorry
This one is great when you shouldn’t really have said what you just said, but your feelin’ feisty, so whatever.

2. Basic
An insulting term for girls who like Starbucks, nice nail art, Uggs, Yankee Candles and everything else nice in this life. #notbothered

3. Conscious uncoupling
We can thank Gwyneth Paltrow for this little gem. When she separated from Chris Martin earlier this year, this was the term she chose to use. They were SO over.

4. I can’t even
One that has been around for a few years admittedly, but has really come into its own this year. Use this when you are so overcome with a certain emotion that you just…can’t even.

5. Turn down for what
Following the release of a song by the song name from Lil Jon and DJ Snake, even Michelle Obama turned down for what. Except she made it about eating veg and changed it to 'turn up' and danced with a turnip…

6. Eyebrows on fleek
When your eyebrows are lookin’ good and on point, they’re on fleek. Made popular by this viral video:

7. Surfboardt
Beyoncé made this word famous after her song Drunk In Love.

8. Bae
A sweet term of endearment for your other half.

9. Bye Felicia
Someone you don’t really have much time for is known as ‘Felicia’… Bye Felicia appeared on  LOT of Vines this year. Here’s Nicole Richie explaining it perfectly:

10. Thirsty
Used perfectly by Taylor Swift on Twitter recently, ‘Thirsty’ means desperate. One NEVER wants to be described as ‘thirsty’.

Ah parents. We love 'em! These may be quotes you hear over the phone if you don't live at home, on the weekends when you visit home, or every minute of every day if you live at home!

With Christmas just around the corner, we look forward to hearing these a LOT more:

1. "It’s lashing – would ya not bring my red jacket with you?"
Rather be caught dead, thanks though! 

2. "Have you worn that skirt I got you yet, I haven’t noticed it at all?"
Oh, um…I wore it last week. No mammy I love it, honestly!

3. "That’s it – I’m finished with you"
What does that even MEAN?!

4. "Who are you hanging around with these days using language like that?"
I only said shut up…

5. "Don’t sit on the radiator – you’ll get piles"/ "Don't sit so close to the fire you'll get a kidney infection
You are actually a little bit wary of these warnings

6. "Ask your mother"
Usually in relation to where something is

7. "Ask your father"
Usually in relation to being allowed to go somewhere/ do something

8. "Will you take the shopping from the car there when you’re done sitting in front of the TV all day?"
You literally sat down the second the door opened…typical

9. "Are you still in bed?! It’s 9am! Are you coming to mass, I suppose not"
It's more of a guilt trip than an actual question

10. "Talk to your granny, here, talk to her!  I couldn’t be listening to her"
Ah, the future

People give Gwyneth Paltrow a hard time – mostly because she comes out with a LOT of ridiculous things. 

Like these gems:

1. “I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin”

We have no doubt she is being 100% honest here.

2. “When you go to Paris and your concierge sends you to some restaurant because they get a kickback, it’s like, ‘No, where should I really be? Where is the great bar with organic wine? Where do I get a bikini wax in Paris?”

Isn't it just the WORST?! How dare they!

3. “I would rather die than let my kids eat a Cup-A-Soup”

She saw Chris eat a Pot Noodle once and did an exorcism on him. 

4. “When I pass a flowering zucchini plant in my garden, my heart skips a beat”

It's the little (seriously posh) things, eh?

5. “You know, I use organic products, but I get [laser treatments]. It’s what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu”

She's laughing because she knows she's trolling us all. 

6. “We basically can’t live without Veganaise – it’s a little out of control”

Nights in at Gwyneth's are WILD. 

7. “I basically love anything that comes in a hot dog bun – except hot dogs”

Like tofu and Veganaise?

8. “I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be someone who makes $25,000 a year.”

No, nor should you Gwynnie, nor should you. 

9. “We have always conducted our relationship privately and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner”

Consciously uncoupling is the rich man's "Get the F*** out of my house NOW"

10. “I was starting to hike up the red rocks, and honestly, it was as if I heard the rocks say, ‘You have the answers. You are your teacher.’ I thought I was having an auditory hallucination”

 

Oh, Gwynnie, never change!

The Irish newsrooms are a thing of legend. Between the news desk and the weather report – we'll never be short of drama! It's basically Anchorman in there, don't cha know?

1. Oh Anne, how we miss you. 

2. Oh, we see you Aengus. We see you

3. Don't listen to her, Jean. We appreciate every single one of your outfits. Yes, even the post-Christmas silver number of '10

4. Vintage Bryan making us swoon as always

5. Ray Kennedy immediately regretted his words once he felt Sharon's heated wrath. His job is ok…this time. 

6. The teleprompter messed up again, leaving Aengus confused

7. Martin King – Ireland's smoothest weatherman

It was this day, August 26th, 94 years ago that the 19TH Amendment of the US Constitution gave women the right to vote, which is why today is officially Women’s Equality Day!

While women still don’t have it as good as men in some ways (the gender pay gap in Ireland is 13.9%), things have come a long way since the days of having to quit your job once you got married.

Some of our celebrity friends feel very strongly on the matter too, and for the day that’s in it, here are some of our favourite celeb quotes about feminism!

Ellen Page
“I call myself a feminist when people ask me if I am, and of course I am ‘cause it’s about equality, so I hope everyone is. You know you’re working in a patriarchal society when the word feminist has a weird connotation.”

Julianne Moore
“At one point, ‘feminist’ became a pejorative term. How did that happen? If you’re a feminist, you’re basically saying you’re a humanist.”

Beyoncé
“We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead.”

Lena Dunham
“So many women have come to this idea of it being anti-male and not able to connect with the opposite sex – but what feminism is about is equality and human rights.”

Kate Nash
“Feminism is not a dirty word. It does not mean you hate men, it does not mean you hate girls that have nice legs and a tan, and it does not mean you are a ‘bitch’ or ‘dyke’; it means you believe in equality.”

Caitlin Moran
“Do you have a vagina? And do you want to be in charge of it? If you said ‘yes’ to both, then congratulations – you’re a feminist!”

Zooey Deschanel
“I’m just being myself. There is not an ounce of me that believes any of that crap that they say. We can’t be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a f**king feminist and wear a f**king Peter Pan collar. So f**king what?”

John Legend
“All men should be feminists. If men care about women’s rights, the world will be a better place.”

We’ve all had that horrible, sinking feeling of coming face-to-face with our biggest fear only to flee at the last moment.

These inspirational quotes may give you the extra push you need next time!

1. Mahatma Gandhi: “The enemy is fear. We think it is hate; but, it is fear.”

2. Bill Cosby: “Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.”

3. Judy Blume: “How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.”

4. Don Miguel Ruiz: “Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive—the risk to be alive and express what we really are.”

5. Oprah Winfrey: “The thing you fear most has no power. Your fear of it is what has the power. Facing the truth really will set you free.”

6. Henry Ford: “One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.”

7. Frank Sinatra: “Fear is the enemy of logic.”

And of course, the classic…

8. Franklin D. Roosevelt: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
