Everyone deserves to be the main character in their own love story

We're all trying to help those we love channel their main character energy. Now, with LoveBook it's never been easier. Whether it's your best friend, romantic partner, parent, child or even yourself, LoveBook is all about sharing the love and making people feel special. Here's how it works:


LoveBook lets you bring your love story to life. You start out by creating your very own LoveMoji. With a variety of different body shapes, skin tones, hair styles, and accessories, it's easy for your characters to look and feel like your loved ones. From there, the rest of the story is up to you! You can create a fully custom, one-of-a-kind depiction of your love, or you can work off of one of LoveBook's many templates.

The templates work as guidelines and really help set you up for success as you create a very special love story. You can chose from outlines that let you fill in all of the reasons why you love them or boost their confidence by sharing just how great they really are. And with plenty of space to be packed full of inside jokes, not all of these have to be tear-jerkers... though a gift this special makes it pretty hard to *not* get choked up.

LoveBook also makes for the cutest addition to a proposal! Whether it's "The Story of Us" read just before a romantic candle-lit marriage proposal or the last topping on a "Will you be my Maid of Honor" box, these books are the sweetest way to show someone how much they mean to you. They also make a great wedding gift (in addition to whatever the couple has on their registry, of course!).

You can also celebrate how much fun you've had with dad this Father's Day by giving a book that shares the story of one of your fishing trips or all the ways that their "handy" tips have helped you around the house. These love stories make for a really unique Father's Day gift and reading them together with dad will only make him appreciate it that much more!

You can also give one to that new grad so they can bring a bit of home with them when they go off to college in the fall and remind them just how much fun they had in their last summer home before school.

LoveBook also offers self-love stories for kids so that you can show your little ones just how special they are on their birthday. It's a great way to help boost confidence and reiterate that they are beyond amazing!

The company is all about sharing the love and letting people feel special. And by helping their customers give these customizable, one-of-a-kind gifts, they do a great job at accomplishing just that!

They also have LoveMoji family and romantic coupon books, journals, mugs, greeting cards and more swag so your characters can guest-star in future occasions as well! That's right, they're not just bound by the pages of this chapter!

Check them out today and give someone the gift of being the main character. After all, we all deserve to be the star of our own love story!

Adorable Dexter and his new chew toy. Thanks Chewy Claus.

True

Every holiday season, millions of kids send letters asking for everything from a new bike to a pony. Some even make altruistic requests such as peace on Earth or helping struggling families around the holidays.

But wouldn’t the holiday season be even more magical if our pets had their wishes granted, too? That’s why Chewy Claus is stepping up to spread holiday cheer to America’s pets.

Does your dog dream of a month’s supply of treats or chew toys? Would your cat love a new tree complete with a stylish condo? How about giving your betta fish some fresh decor that’ll really tie its tank together?

Or do your pets need something more than mere creature comforts such as life-saving surgery?

Teen raises $186,000 to help Walmart worker retire.

In America, many people have to work well past the age of retirement to make ends meet. While some of these people choose to work past retirement age because it keeps them active, some older people, like Nola Carpenter, 81, work out of necessity.

Carpenter has been working at Walmart for 20 years, way beyond most people's retirement age just so that she can afford to continue to pay her mortgage. When 19-year-old Devan Bonagura saw the woman looking tired in the break room of the store, he posted a video to his TikTok of Carpenter with a text overlay that said, "Life shouldn't b this hard..." complete with a sad face emoji.

In the video, Carpenter is sitting at a small table looking down and appearing to be exhausted. The caption of the video reads ":/ I feel bad." Turns out, a lot of other people did too, and encouraged the teen to start a GoFundMe, which has since completed.

Philadelphia is taking the city back to the past.

Remember when calling your parents, a tow truck or a friend when you were out and about meant digging in your pocket for a quarter to make a pay phone call? Well, a Philadelphia-based collective, PhilTel, is jumping into the past with a modern twist, by installing free-to-use pay phones throughout the city.

Of course, the pay phones that many of us grew up were removed from public places years ago. There no longer seemed to be a need for them when most people had a phone in their pocket or in their hand. But it's easy to forget that not everyone has or wants that luxury. For some people, staying that connected all the time can be too much and for others, it's simply financially impossible to own a cell phone.

Sandler's daughters held nothing back.

Clearly the funny gene runs in the Sandler family. Comedy aficionado Adam Sandler just proved it after reading an insanely funny acceptance speech, which was allegedly written by his two teenage daughters— Sunny, 14, and Sadie, 16. It was such a savage roast, one is compelled to not doubt the claim.

The event was the prestigious Gotham Awards in New York, where Sandler was set to accept a Lifetime Achievement Award. Michelle Williams and the late Sidney Poitier were also honored, just to give you an idea as to how highbrow this event was.

But did that stop Sandler’s daughter from going all out? It did not. They were hilariously ruthless.

Think all cats are the same? These pictures prove they each have their own personality

Photographer Nils Jacobi shows how cats aren't nearly as aloof as one might think.

Catographer purrfectly captures cats' purrsonalities.

People often mistakingly attribute a singular personality to cats—usually the words "aloof" or "snobby" are used to describe them. At best, they might be given the "evil genius" label. But in actuality, no two cats are alike. Each has their own distinct ways of being, whether that’s silly, sophisticated, affectionate, downright diabolical or somewhere in between.

This photographer has the pictures to prove it.

Nils Jacobi, better known online as furryfritz, the catographer, has photographed literally thousands upon thousands of cats—from Maine coons who look like they should be in a perfume ad to tabbies in full-on derp mode.
