Happy Friday! How did your week go for you? Did you accomplish any of your goals? I had a very productive work week and amazingly, I was able to reach quite a few of my work goals! Now, I am ready to relax this weekend and catch up on a few home projects.
I am starting a new weekly series called “#FridayVibes Weekly Top Five”. Every Friday, we end the week with “#FridayVibes Weekly Top Five”. These five stories are a little bit of everything: community news, pop culture, a fun shopping sale, an important news story, or a personal update. Just a quick little mention about a topic we wish we could give a full feature on.
This Week’s #FridayVibes Weekly Top Five:
- Vernors New Collectible Pop Cans
- Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale
- Model Hannah Ferguson’s Red Matte Lip Tutorial

5. Actress Mila Kunis’ is on the Cover of the August Issue of Cosmopolitan!
Cover star Mila Kunis has a reputation for being impossible to resist. Just ask…well, pretty much anyone who has worked with her. Mila can’t kick her habit of turning colleagues into ride-or-dies. In the August issue of Cosmopolitan, the 34-year-old actress and producer dishes to her latest, SNL’s Kate McKinnon, her friend and costar in this month’s big-screen comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, about secret fantasies, career superpowers, and so much more.
On social media—and why she doesn’t participate: “I was so late to that train. I remember at some point my roommate was like, “You know, there’s a thing called Facebook,” and I was like, “What is this Facebook? Who’s gonna poke each other? That’s just weird.” And then Ashton and I reconnected and started talking. He used to be incredibly forward-thinking with social media, when the intent was to connect to people. But it took an ugly turn and became all about who can be the loudest, who can be the angriest and the most negative. Then it’s just not a fun game to play.”
On rumors about herself that run in the tabloids: “I don’t read anything about myself. I genuinely don’t know what’s written about me…other than I know that I’m pregnant about once a year and my husband and I are getting a divorce once a year. I know this because I go down the grocery store aisle, and I see it on the cover of magazines and I’m like, Oh boy, okay!… The only thing that’s upsetting is my parents and my grandparents sometimes get confused… At one point when I was pregnant, [the tabloids] said that I had an emergency and was rushed to the hospital, and my face was on the cover. The amount of stress that caused my family, nobody will understand. Although my dad is always very hopeful that the pregnancies are true. He’s always like, “Is there really another?”
On her ultimate dream as a producer and an actor: “I just sat down three days ago to write out my dream in five years. And I realized very quickly that I didn’t dream big enough. And so I’ve been thinking about it for the past few days, like, What is my grand f**king dream for myself? I just want to be happy. I know that sounds incredibly lame, but I never want to stop learning or being challenged, and I never want to stop challenging my partner. I think that those things will always lead to some form of success.”
