A person’s “Memory Age” is the age they look in their mind when they close their eyes and picture themselves. A new survey asked 350 women, ages 30 to 70, how they mentally see themselves, and 90% picture a younger “memory photo” of themselves, which on average, is ten years younger than they actually are. 62% of those polled say they have a one to 10-year difference in their memory age, and that’s regardless of whether they were in their thirties, forties, fifties or sixties.

When a mom says she doesn’t want anything for Mother’s Day, she doesn’t mean don’t get her fancy jewelry or purses. What she really means when she says “I don’t want anything for Mother’s Day” is THIS:
- “I don’t want anything to wake me up during the night before Mother’s Day” – That means if a kid wakes up needing assistance during the middle of the night, it’s all on you, Dad. And she doesn’t even want you to wake her up for breakfast in bed. She’d love being spoiled like that, just do it after she wakes up on her own, after sleeping all night uninterrupted.
- “I don’t want anything interrupting my shower on Mother’s Day” – Mom wants to enjoy a full-length shower, allowing her enough time to shave her legs and wash her hair. Maybe even enough time to floss and tweeze, too.
- “I don’t want anything keeping me away from my Mother’s Day mimosas” – Make mama happy and make the mimosas happen, Dad.
- “I don’t want anything on my to-do list” – This means no cooking, cleaning, laundry, or grocery shopping. But mom doesn’t want to have to do double duty on the day after Mother’s Day, so pick up the slack, Dad and kiddos and do some of those chores for her.
- “I don’t want anything that may involve boogers, poop, or any other human excrement anywhere near me” – This one is self-explanatory, keep the gross stuff away from mom for once, on her special day.
- “I don’t want anything to get on my clothes for the whole day” – So keep the kids and the art supplies they’re using to create a Mother’s Day card away from mommy today.
- “I don’t want anything interrupting me for at least 30 minutes while I curl up with that book I’ve been trying to read for three months” – Mama deserves to read books without pictures sometimes and Mother’s Day is a good time to give her that luxury.
- “But most importantly, husband, I don’t want anything getting in the way of snuggling up on the couch with you and the kids for an afternoon movie” – For that hour and a half, mom wants to relax with her darling little ones’ sticky hands and dirty hair touching her arms and face, while Dad gets in on the cuddle, too.

Summer’s coming and that means cool drinks for hot days. Last year, it was all about frosé - the delightful slushy rosé that everyone fell in love with. But now there’s another fun way to get buzzed in the sun - boozy popsicles from UK-based company, Pops.
Their icy treats contain about 4% alcohol each and are available in your favorite wine and cocktail flavors:
- Prosecco Bellini
- Moscow Mule
- Vodka Watermelon Martini
These sound like the perfect way to cool down in the summer heat, but there’s one downside. Like some other treats we’ve been unable to get our hands on - Oreo Cadbury eggs and rose gold Prosecco glitter - these frozen cocktails on a stick are only available in the U.K. for now. But until they make their way to the USA, you can try ordering them online.
