Sisters with ‘polar opposite’ personalities delight Twitter, go viral

Two Michigan sisters with “polar opposite” personalities have charmed the internet with photos showing how different their styles truly are.

On Thursday, Alexandria Bishop used Twitter to post a peek into the vastly different personal tastes of her and her sister, Jessica Toutant, Metro reports.

“My sister and I are polar opposites,” a raven-haired Bishop captioned a selfie of herself and her sibling that featured a beaming Toutant rocking rainbow-hued locks, in contrast with the coy-looking author in a black scarf and top.

Due to popular demand, Bishop later shared more pictures of the very different interiors of their homes and a slew of family photos.

TEEN’S BATHROBE-CLAD SENIOR YEAR PHOTOS GO VIRAL, THOUGH HIS MOM IS ‘VERY UNHAPPY’ WITH PICS

“Her home vs mine,” the post continued to describe pictures of Toutant’s cheerful backyard with a rainbow fence and oversized unicorn float in a blowup pool – a far cry from Bishop’s stark-looking doorstop warning passerby to “go away” via the welcome mat.

Aesthetic preferences aside, Bishop told BuzzFeed News that she and her sister share a great passion for art, and work together at an adult foster care home. Bishop is a makeup artist, painter, sculptor and illustrator, while her sister runs a Henna business and teaches yoga, according to Metro.

“She has always been the bright, bubbly, sun-worshipping one while I’ve always been the quiet reserved one who hates the sun and loves to wear black,” the Twitter user described her sibling.

Despite their eight-year age gap, the women are happy to be close in adulthood.

“We both love the same movies and shows, aside from my love of horror, and we get along well in general aside from playfully making fun of each other often. Our styles are just completely different,” Bishop told Metro.

Bishop said she never expected their story to win them overnight social media fame, jokingly describing the experience as “just weird.”

In the hours since, the post describing the tale of two sisters has been liked more than 673,000 times, shared more than 106,000 times and sparked thousands of comments, as of Saturday evening.

“My two personalities colliding,” one fan commented.

“I don’t know who I want to be more,” another gushed.

Other users agreed that Bishop and Toutant’s one of a kind, tight-kind bond reminded them of their own sisters or daughters.

Venice fines tourists $1G for making coffee on historic bridge

Two tourists to Venice, Italy, were forced to wake up and smell the coffee after getting smacked with a $1,067 fine for brewing up java with a travel cooker on the steps of a historic bridge.

On Friday, two German backpackers were blasted with the pricey fine for boldly brewing a cup of joe at the foot of the Rialto Bridge, BBC reports.

The tourists, ages 32 and 35, were also booted from the Italian city for the offense, which occurred at the oldest bridge of the Grand Canal. According to Newsweek, the Rialto recently underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation.

STARBUCKS SHOP BOOTS POLICE OFFICERS BECAUSE CUSTOMER ‘DID NOT FEEL SAFE’ AROUND THEM: REPORTS

Overtourism is an increasing concern for Venetian lawmakers, with roughly 30 million visitors flocking to the city annually, per Newsweek. Venice has a population of about 55,000.

Brazen behavior from visitors has some politicians at their wits’ end.

“Venice must be respected and those impolite people who come here and do what they want must understand that. Thanks to the local police, they will be sanctioned and removed,” Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro said of the news.

Rule breakers will be smacked with fines, as per the outlet, and local officials will inform the embassies and consolates of tourists’ home nations of their rowdy actions.

In recent months, Venetian officials started charging admission fees fees for day-tripping tourists, a first for Italy.

Meghan Markle ditched messy buns for this relatable reason, hair expert claims

The Duchess of Sussex has seemingly ditched her “signature” messy bun hairstyle, but one haircare professional argues that it’s for a reason many new moms can relate to.

On Sunday, the former actress hit the red carpet – her first as a royal – for the London premiere of “The Lion King,” with her dark hair swept in a sleek ballerina bun. As noted by the Daily Mail, the look marked the fourth time in two months that the duchess has sported slicked-back hairstyles in public since welcoming baby Archie in May.

A far cry away from her old loose locks, celebrity hairstylist James Johnson claims that the new mom may be dealing with postpartum hair loss — as the style makes for an easy solution.

“When you’re pregnant your hair cycle stops so you don’t shed any hair, so when you give birth, all the hair you should have lost in the nine months falls out over a quick period,” Johnson said.

“Meghan may have opted for a scraped back bun to prevent her hair from further damage. It’s also a quick hairstyle and perfect for hot weather,” he continued. “If her hair was damaged during pregnancy, putting her hair up will prevent it from further damage.”

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, many women deal with “excessive hair shedding” after pregnancy due to falling estrogen levels. The phenomenon usually peaks four months after giving birth and mothers’ hair growth patterns typically return to normal around the child’s first birthday.

Whether Duchess Meghan is managing postpartum hair loss or is just keeping her routine simple, she’s long approached beauty with an effortless ethos.

“When I get ready to go out, it’s half hour and we’re out of the door. I don’t want to waste time getting ready: I want to go and have fun,” the California native told Esquire in 2013.

Sarah Hyland’s engagement ring details revealed

Talk about a proposal “Well” done!

Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams are officially getting hitched, and the groom-to-be popped the question to the “Modern Family” star with a gorgeous oval diamond ring experts agree cost at least $100,000.

The happy couple announced the news on Instagram on Tuesday, sharing photos of the dreamy beachfront proposal and Hyland’s gorgeous new bling. Industry experts agree that Adams likely spared no expense when ring shopping for his future bride.

“Sarah’s elegant and timelessly classic ring appears to feature an estimated 5 carat oval diamond in a delicate solitaire or diamond accented setting,” Kathryn Money, VP of Strategy and Merchandising for Brilliant Earth told Fox News. “Depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the center diamond, we estimate the cost of the ring at approximately $100,000-$150,000.”

83-YEAR-OLD FLOWER GIRL STEALS SHOW AT GRANDDAUGHTER’S WEDDING

Andrew Brown, CEO of WP Diamonds, echoed similar sentiments of Hyland’s new sparkler, which is reportedly by Lorraine Schwartz.

“Sarah’s ring looks like a beautiful white 5-carat oval cut that is most likely F or G color and VS clarity,” Brown told E! News. “On the simple thin band, this ring would probably run $175-$200,000.”

Earlier this year, the “Bachelorette” alum shut down rumors that his actress girlfriend would ever be “buying” her own engagement ring.

“I will pay for this ring, I promise you,” Adams said on his “Your Favorite Things” podcast. “It will come out of my bank account.”

Adams has previously said that his family wouldn’t likely be meeting Hyland’s brood until their wedding day due to political differences.

“My parents haven’t met Sarah’s parents and for good reason,” he admitted on his podcast in May. “They both fall on opposite sides of the political spectrum and I’m just sure someone’s going to get into a fight about something.”

“It will be a bunch of liberal actors and my dad and my family, who are a bunch of conservatives. My dad’s a doctor, my brother-in-law is from oil money in Texas. It’s going to be so weird,” he revealed.

Adams, 35, and Hyland, 28, have been an item since late 2017.

Sorority cancels national convention, donates 17,000 meals to Hurricane Barry victims

Massive helpings of chicken, potatoes au gratin, macaroni and cheese and flourless chocolate cake didn’t go to waste when Delta Sigma Theta sorority’s national convention in New Orleans was unfortunately cut short due to Hurricane Barry. The Greek-lettered organization for collegiate women donated 17,000 meals to those affected by the storm.

Before Hurricane Barry made landfall in the Big Easy on Saturday, officials for the sorority made the difficult decision to end their biennial meeting, which roughly 16,000 people were expected to attend through the weekend, due to the storm, the Washington Post reports.

Thanks to the generosity of Delta Sigma Theta, however, one silver lining soon emerged. Reps for the sisterhood instructed the event caterer, Centerplate, to donate 17,000 uneaten meals to those affected by the hurricane through the Second Harvest Food Bank.

WORSHIP GROUP STOPS AT CHICK-FIL-A, BUSTS OUT VIRAL RENDITION OF ‘LEAN ON ME’

“With 16,000 attendees and two food functions canceled, there were inordinate amounts of food that would have been wasted,” Beverly E. Smith, national president of the sorority, said on Facebook. “Kudos to Centerplate!”

“To have all these meals ahead of time is really a godsend,” Amy Sins, a New Orleans chef who helped coordinate the recovery effort, told the Post.

“We’re not just trying to feed their tummies,” she continued. “We’re also kind of trying to feed their soul.”

The gesture hit especially close to home for Sins, who lost her own house to Hurricane Katrina.

“It’s really heartwarming for these ladies … when their major conference gets canceled, the first thing they thought of was to help other people,” Jay Vise, a spokesman for Second Harvest Food Bank spokesman, told BET.

Founded in 1913 at Howard University, the Delta Sigma Theta aims to “promote academic excellence and provide assistance to those in need,” according to their mission statement, with an emphasis on the African-American community.

Texas brothers catch and release 12-foot tiger shark

What a catch! Two brothers in Texas were thrilled to catch a tiger shark measuring nearly 12 feet during a fishing trip in Corpus Christi over the weekend.

On Sunday morning, Andrew and Stephen Seaborn, of Team Seaborn Fishing, proudly nabbed a female tiger shark measuring 11 feet, 11 inches while fishing off Bob Hall Pier, Houston Chronicle reported.

The Austin anglers seized the impressive catch – which they soon released – by using a stingray as bait.

TOXIC LAKE NICKNAMED ‘MALDIVES’ BECOMES SOCIAL MEDIA SENSATION, DESPITE WARNINGS FROM OFFICIALS

“Dreams came true today,” Team Seaborn wrote on Facebook of the “beautiful” fish, sharing a photo of the beaming brothers crouched in the water with the tiger shark.

According to the post, after “two uneventful nights on the pier,” Andrew was in “disbelief” on Sunday morning as he saw 200 yards of his line “taken effortlessly” by an unknown creature, the Chronicle reported. After more than 30 minutes of struggle, the Seaborns and their pal Allen Glen reeled in the majestic tiger shark.

Taking a requisite photo with the beast, the female tiger shark was soon released back to sea.

“We’re avid fishermen who love chasing after big fish but it was even more important for us to get back in the water with her and watch her swim away,” Andrew told Fox News.

Though the fisherman told the Chronicle that Team Seaborn is unsure if the catch would break any state or Bob Hall Pier records, they’re happy to call the catch a “personal best.”

“The only records we are hoping to break are our own,” Andrew told the outlet. “We are avid catch and release fishermen when it comes to big sharks, so we would never try to have a fish submitted for a record unless it’s a catch and release record.”

Fishing has been a shared passion for the brothers since childhood, Andrew said, taking interest in the hobby from their father.

Though the Seaborn brothers have nabbed four tiger sharks before their most recent catch, all were smaller than their Sunday shark.

According to National Geographic, tiger sharks can often grow to measure between 10 and 14 feet, usually weighing 850 to 1,400 pounds. Common in tropical waters through the world, the predators are “second only to great whites in attacking people.”

Fitness blogger shares ‘real’ post about bloated stomach: ‘Abs aren’t forever’

Westlake Legal Group woman-abs-istock Fitness blogger shares 'real' post about bloated stomach: 'Abs aren’t forever' Janine Puhak fox-news/fitness-and-wellbeing fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc article 504989fe-67a7-5153-9a94-22e4907c1898

One popular Australian fitness blogger is being praised as “real” and “honest” for revealing why she’s been feeling “extremely bloated” lately, musing, “abs aren’t forever, but body confidence and self-love can be.”

Earlier this week, Katie Lolas shared real-life photos of her stomach and some personal medical details with her Instagram following of 155,000.

“Abs aren’t forever, but body confidence and self-love can be. The medication I’m currently taking has made me extremely bloated,” Lolas, wearing a black sports bra and green-hued workout pants, captioned two selfies of her distended stomach. “However, I also look like this after a big meal, when I eat something I’m intolerant to and especially around the time I get [my] period.”

WOMAN, 25, CLAIMS SHE DOESN’T EAT SOLID FOODS, JUST ‘BREATHES’ FOR ENERGY

According to News.com.au, the Sydney-based “meal prep queen” suffers from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and recently had microdiscectomy surgery for a ruptured disc in her back.

“I have to admit that maintaining a flat stomach used to be a real priority for me, but I have realized that is was an unrealistic and superficial focus because despite most of the images we see online, no one has a flat stomach 24/7,” Lolas continued.

“Bloating is a 100 percent normal part of life and I’m not going to allow myself to feel ashamed about it and get caught up in the comparison game,” she said. “So here I am, with my bloated belly, choosing to feel proud and grateful for all that my body can do.”

A far cry away from the 33-year-old’s frequent Instagram photos of her rock-hard abdomen and gorgeously prepared healthy meals, Lolas’ followers quickly applauded the influencer for her honesty in the post.

“You’re a superstar for sharing your honest, true part of life!” one user cheered.

“You are just the best! I’ve really gotten to a point where I am obsessed with how my stomach looks but you’re so right,” another fan agreed. “Thank you so so so much for this, it makes me feel normal.”

“Bloated after every meal. Thank you for being so real!” another chimed in.

“Such an important message especially for young girls and women,” one supporter echoed. “Hope you are recovering well after your surgery.”

According to the outlet, Lolas, who works full-time as a high school teacher, recently unfollowed a few of the famed Victoria’s Secret models on social media in hopes of promoting “more authentic representation of the real world” on her highly followed social media channels.

“They were women sharing their extravagant lifestyles and advertisements for products that I’d never be able to afford … I want my feed to reflect my values rather than be dominated by the material and superficial,” Lolas told News.com.au.

According to News.com.au, the Sydney-based “meal prep queen” suffers from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and recently had microdiscectomy surgery for a ruptured disc in her back.

“I have to admit that maintaining a flat stomach used to be a real priority for me, but I have realized that is was an unrealistic and superficial focus because despite most of the images we see online, no one has a flat stomach 24/7,” Lolas continued.

“Bloating is a 100 percent normal part of life and I’m not going to allow myself to feel ashamed about it and get caught up in the comparison game,” she said. “So here I am, with my bloated belly, choosing to feel proud and grateful for all that my body can do.”

A far cry away from the 33-year-old’s frequent Instagram photos of her rock-hard abdomen and gorgeously prepared healthy meals, Lolas’ followers quickly applauded the influencer for her honesty in the post.

“You’re a superstar for sharing your honest, true part of life!” one user cheered.

“You are just the best! I’ve really gotten to a point where I am obsessed with how my stomach looks but you’re so right,” another fan agreed. “Thank you so so so much for this, it makes me feel normal.”

“Bloated after every meal. Thank you for being so real!” another chimed in.

“Such an important message especially for young girls and women,” one supporter echoed. “Hope you are recovering well after your surgery.”

According to the outlet, Lolas, who works full-time as a high school teacher, recently unfollowed a few of the famed Victoria’s Secret models on social media in hopes of promoting “more authentic representation of the real world” on her highly followed social media channels.

“They were women sharing their extravagant lifestyles and advertisements for products that I’d never be able to afford … I want my feed to reflect my values rather than be dominated by the material and superficial,” Lolas told News.com.au.

The film has come under fire for what has been described as racially “insensitive” content such as its depictions of blacks as subservient and often cartoonish slaves. Others object to what they argue is an overly favorable depiction of the Confederacy in general.
