Pastels are back in full force for spring and everyone from Mila Kunis to Taylor Swift has been spotted sporting the trend lately. These pretty light colors can be tricky to pull off, but the trick is to wear them sparingly (not too many pastels at one time) and with neutrals to tone them down. White, khaki, brown, and black bode well with pastels, making them gorgeous not Gatsby. Fashion mags like Elle and Vogue suggest donning these shades with edgy extras like embellished black heels or a leather jacket to keep the look fresh and fun. Another way to experiment with pastels is to incorporate them into your make up routine. Eyeliner pencils and eye shadows are an inexpensive way to see if the pastel trend is something you'd like to try.

Pop of health/fitness: Ditch the diet pop [soda]. Normal weight people who drank 3 servings or more of diet soda a day — at least 21 weekly servings — were at almost double the risk for becoming overweight or obese after seven to eight years compared to people who skipped diet drinks, according to researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. And people who consumed at least one daily serving of diet soda (versus none) were more likely to develop a high waist circumference, a condition linked with diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, according to a recent study.
