Often dubbed a “secret weapon” ingredient, charcoal works like a magnet to remove dirt and oil. It has deep cleansing properties that help to unclog your pores & leaves your skin Continue Reading

When it comes to getting rid of the grossness that is blackheads on our noses, most of us reach for pore packs, which are basically adhesive-coated strips that yank the debris out of our pores, decorating the strip with dislodged evidence and leaving us with a sense of unparalleled satisfaction.

Guide for Family Vacation in the Philippines

by noreply@blogger.com (Rochelle Kawasaki-Rivera) @ Rochelle Rivera


As you grow older and build a family, it becomes much harder to avoid falling into a routine. Kids are a blessing and they change your life completely. However, that doesn't mean your life should revolve entirely around their wishes and needs, while yours always take second place.

Don't get me wrong, I do the same myself and it's completely natural. It's very hard to avoid this pitfall and allocate at least some time for yourself or your significant other. Instead, we work hard all day long and then continue working once we get home.

This lifestyle is demanding but rewarding, and that's why we all do it. Ultimately, having children is such a joy that it's worth any sacrifice. But, too often it leads to us making these compromises automatically, without even considering if there's a better alternative – one which will balance the needs of every family member and leave everyone satisfied.

There have been mountains of books about parenting, and i won't pretend i'm some kind of guru or something. I make the same mistakes as you all do, and try my best to learn from them and become a better person – for my family's sake but also for my own happiness and wellbeing. So with this in mind, i want to touch on a specific topic that i'm sure many parents are concerned with – family vacations.

Taking your kids out for a holiday could be a great bonding experience. You can break the mundane routine, have fun together and create memories that will last a lifetime. It does, however, also pose the risk of becoming a challenging and stressful experience for the parents. The best way to ensure you have a great time is to plan and prepare as much as possible, as well as keep a light attitude if something doesn't go according to plan later on.

So, here are some tips to help you plan your next family vacation. I've also thrown in a couple of recommended locations, to help you get started with planning your getaway.

Tips for planning your family vacation :

  • Don't settle on the first, or cheapest, destination you find. Scout at least a few different places, and do as much research as you can.
  • Before deciding where to go, try to make sure that place is as diverse as possible. That way, it's much more likely it will suit the expectations of every family member.
  • Picking a location with multiple attractions and activities allows for more flexibility – in case something you want to do is suddenly unavailable or you just don't find it as exciting as you imagined.
  • If your family loves the beach, make sure you do some separate research on that topic. Try to identify at least 2 different beaches that could be fun to visit. The best idea is to pick one popular beach and one which is more secluded. That way, you'll be able to pick the one which suits you the best once you get there – depending on your mood and energy.
  • If your kids are old enough, let them be a part of the planning team. Speaking about the vacation in advance and deciding everything together as a family will enhance the experience and create a lot of anticipation and excitement.

One thing to note though is that you must be accurate and reliable with how your present the trip to your kids. You don't want to build their hopes up only for them to be disappointed later on.

- Parents who are travelling with younger children should make sure the attractions they pick are appropriate for smaller kids as well. Again, the last thing you want is to reach a place only to find out your kid can't enjoy the rides or activities out there.

  • Sometimes paying more actually saves you money, or at least helps things go much smoother. All inclusive luxury resorts are always a safe bet, as they offer a lot of activities and entertainment for all family members.
  • All inclusive doesn't have to break your wallet – if you book well in advance and pick the right destinations. There are always promos to keep an eye for, especially from hotel who offer family discounts.
  • Another option is to book the entire trip through a travel agent, such as www.philippinestravelpackage.com for example. Booking through this site will help you plan your entire trip in any way you'd like, and save you money as you enjoy bundle deals and group discounts. It also relieves a lot of the pressure, when you have a professional looking after you and offering his advice.

Many islands have specialized resorts that are supposed to be child friendly. While you'll need to read reviews carefully to make sure they actually provide some added value, this can certainly be a viable option. These type of hotels offer nanny services and entertainment for kids of all ages, which will make it easy for you to have some alone time to relax.

  • Lastly, once you make a plan try and stick to it as much as you can. I'm not saying spontaneity is a bad thing, but try and keep things relatively organized. Don't let the kids run you over and get their way – even if it means you'll have to endure some crying tantrums now and then. By balancing between the kids' needs and your own, you'll make your holiday much better and more relaxing.
My top 5 places for a family vacation :

  1. Batangas – beautiful beaches, and great resorts for affordable prices.
  1. Puerto Galera – over 30 different beaches and lots of activities and attractions
  1. Bohol – family friendly resorts, lots of outdoors activities
  1. Vigan City – relaxed atmosphere, rich culture and history make for a great learning trip.
  1. Manila – endless possibilities for day tours and fun, great selection of family hotels.

Donald Trump Doubles Down on Controversial Comments About NFL and NBA Players: ‘You’re Fired!’

Donald Trump Doubles Down on Controversial Comments About NFL and NBA Players: ‘You’re Fired!’

by Maria Pasquini @ PEOPLE.com

On Saturday, Donald Trump made it clear that he wasn’t backing down on the controversial and widely criticized comments he made about NFL and NBA players who express their unhappiness over the current political situation in America by refusing to stand during the national anthem.

“If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect Our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem,” Trump tweeted.

“If not, YOU’RE FIRED,” he continued. “Find something else to do!”

On Friday, at a rally for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Luther Strange, the president said he thought NFL team owners should fire players who protest standing for the national anthem by taking a knee or sitting down.

“For a week, be the most popular person in this country. Because that’s a total disrespect of our heritage,” Trump said. “That’s a total disrespect for everything we stand for.”

Hours later on Saturday morning, Trump tweeted that he would not invite the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House, shortly after Fox & Friends covered some comments Stephen Curry made on Friday about how he didn’t think his team should visit the White House to celebrate their championship win.

“You can talk about all the different personalities that have said things and done things — from Kaepernick to what happened with Michael Bennett to all sorts of examples of what has gone on in our country that has led to change,” Curry told reporters.

“We’re all trying to do what we can using our platforms, using our opportunities to shed light on that. That’s kind of where I stand on that,” he continued. “I don’t think us going to the White House will miraculously make everything better, but this is my opportunity to voice that.”

RELATED VIDEO: Exclusive: Natasha Stoynoff Speaks Out: ‘I Don’t Want Women to Feel Afraid’

The president voiced his disapproval by tweeting, “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!”

In response to the president’s tweets, both the NFL and The Golden State Warriors have issued statements standing behind their players’ freedom of speech.

On Saturday morning, NFL commissioner Roger Goodman said, “The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture. There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters we’ve experienced over the last month.

“Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities,” he added.

And on Saturday afternoon, the Warriors came out with their own statement.

“While we intended to meet as a team at the first opportunity we had this morning to collaboratively discuss a potential visit to the White House, we accept that President Trump had made it clear that we are not invited,” The Warriors said.

“We believe there is nothing more American than our citizens having the right to express themselves freely on matters important to them,” the team continued. “We’re disappointed that we did not have an opportunity during this process to share our views or have open dialogue on issues impacting our communities that we felt would be important to raise.”

“In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we’ll constructively use our trip to the nation’s capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion — the values that we embrace as an organization,” they added.

Numerous celebrities — including Diddy — have also joined in standing behind the players, causing a resurgence of the #TakeAKnee hashtag on social media.

In August 2016, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines for refusing to stand for the national anthem.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said at the time. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans and David Eason Are Married!

Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans and David Eason Are Married!

by Alexia Fernandez @ PEOPLE.com

Jenelle Evans has tied the knot!

The Teen Mom 2 star, 25, said “I do” to David Eason in an outdoor wedding in Riegelwood, North Carolina, on Saturday, according to MTV News.

In videos shared by guests on Snapchat, Evans could be seen walking down the aisle in a white lace dress with a long white veil. Eason wore a white dinner jacket for the nuptials.

The couple exchanged their vows under a flower canopy.

The mother of three and Eason got engaged in February, just weeks after welcoming their first child together, 9-month-old daughter Ensley Jolie.

The reality star’s children were all in attendance for her wedding: 8-year-old son Jace from a previous relationship, 3-year-old Kaiser from a previous relationship with Nathan Griffith, and Ensley.

Evans has been adamant on Teen Mom 2 that her mother, Barbara, would not be invited to the wedding as their custody battle for Jace unraveled on the show.

Barbara told PEOPLE in July that her daughter “excludes us out of her life.”

“She’s been saying she’s having her wedding, running around with her family of friends, but you know what she says? ‘My mother Barbara is not invited,” the 64-year-old said. “She’s not inviting me to her own wedding. It’s very painful.”

Despite her mother’s absence, Evans’ excitement for her big day didn’t go ignored on social media. The reality star began a countdown to her wedding on Instagram, sharing frequent photos of herself in a white, lacy corset or in front of a mirror getting ready.

 

Her young family also went on vacation to New York City, where they were outfitted for wedding attire, including a flower girl dress for Eason’s daughter Maryssa, and a suit for Jace.

RELATED VIDEO: Teen Mom 2 Clip Shows Jenelle Evans & Fiancé David Adjusting To Life With Baby Number Three

In her new memoir, Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom, Evans opened up about her past relationships and how Eason was different from those she’d dated in the past.

“He was so different from the other men I had been with,” Evans wrote in her memoir. “I finally snagged a good man.”

“I didn’t want to jump right into a man’s arms or into his bed,” she added. “I wanted to take this one slow. If it was worth my time, I would know.”

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

by mariayagoda @ PEOPLE.com

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.

Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.

“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.

GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.

Thomas Rhett Says Daughter Willa Is Taking Her Role as a Big Sister in Stride: 'She's Super Protective of Ada'

Thomas Rhett Says Daughter Willa Is Taking Her Role as a Big Sister in Stride: 'She's Super Protective of Ada'

by Brianne Tracy @ PEOPLE.com

Having two kids under the age of 2 would be a challenge for anybody — but throw the opening of a pop-up shop, album release and international tour into the mix and you’ve now reached Thomas Rhett’s level.

“To have two children under the age of 2 has been pretty challenging for me and Lauren ,” Thomas Rhett, 27, told PEOPLE at the launch of his Los Angeles pop-up on Friday. “But at the same time, I feel like if we can handle this, we can handle pretty much anything.”

This week, in particular, has been major for Thomas Rhett both professionally and personally — his album Life Changes became the first country album in 2017 to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and his 22-month-old daughter Willa Gray, whom he and Akins, 27,  adopted from Uganda in May, just had her first day of school.

“It was sad for me and Lauren, but she didn’t care,” Thomas Rhett says of Willa Gray starting school, which is only one day a week. “I don’t think she even turned around and looked at us before we left.”

“I feel like I’ve known her for forever,” Thomas Rhett adds. “I feel like she’s so much older than she is, but she’s still so young and so to watch her in environment and watch her play with other kids was just really cool for me and Lauren to see.”

After welcoming daughter Ada James, 5 weeks, in August, Akins told PEOPLE at the time that having a little sister was “world-changing” and “emotional” for Willa Gray, but since then, Thomas Rhett says she has fully adjusted to having the newborn around.

“For two weeks, was like, ‘Who is this person who came in and took some of the attention away from me?’ ” Thomas Rhett says. “But now she’s super protective of Ada and is just turning into an amazing big sister.”

Thomas Rhett’s two daughters and wife were on hand to help him celebrate his lesser-known love for fashion with the launch of his pop-up shop, which features a collection of streetwear-inspired styles for men and women from the new collection Daniel Patrick X Thomas Rhett, four varieties of New Era baseball caps featuring Thomas Rhett’s Home Team logo, t-shirts custom designed and handmade by MadeWorn as well as a limited supply of custom crafted denim jackets by stylist Kemal Harris.

Also available for purchase at the shop is tour merchandise and the shirt his wife designed for 147 Million Orphans, the charity the couple has worked closely with and through which they first met Willa Gray.

“If you ask someone who doesn’t know anything about country music, they’re going to think all we wear is belt buckles and cowboy boots,” Thomas Rhett says, though he admits he wore cowboy boots for the first two years of his career. “I started to dance around on stage and realized I was going to break my ankle if I didn’t switch shoes.”

He continues: “There’s so many people in country that are hip and have great taste in what they wear on stage, so for me to be able to be loud about it is something that has never really been done in this genre. They do it in the pop and hip-hop world all the time, so why can’t we do it?”

Thomas Rhett, a self-proclaimed sneakerhead, has always loved streetwear and distressed items so he wanted to make sure he incorporated things that he actually wears into the collection. But as to whether his style has changed since becoming a dad?

“I tuck my shirt in more now,” Thomas Rhett says with a laugh. “I’m definitely rocking some dad vibes. I think my style is ever-changing, especially with the things that can change it even more — like having kids.”

As his daughters get older, though, Thomas Rhett thinks they’ll definitely be the ones “giving all the advice” when it comes to style.

But when Poppy isn’t snoozing, Berkus, 44, and husband Jeremiah Brent, 31, keep her busy with poolside play dates that are a far cry from a formal outdoor gathering.

“Our home is now filled with blow up toys from Target in the pool as opposed to margaritas,” Berkus said.

Staff Picks: The powders that keep our makeup intact

Staff Picks: The powders that keep our makeup intact

by Denise Bengzon @ Articles - Project Vanity

As a dry-skinned gal, I didn't think I needed to set my look with powder until I began to notice the foundation on my nose would disappear after just a few hours of wear. It would happen even though I was using a long-wear formula and my face hadn't oiled up much! I've learned to apply a bit of setting powder after since then, and it has honestly made a difference in how much longer my makeup lasts! If you're a newbie at this like I am, it's good to know that there are great budget options available. But what if you want to invest in something that's HG quality? Well, that's where the rest of the PV team chimed in!

First Look: Kate Tokyo drops a new line with foundation and eye makeup

by Crystal Rodis-Concepcion @ Articles - Project Vanity

I first learned about Kanebo from my mom way back when I was grade school. Watching her use it as I grew up, it was also the brand I sought when I started buying my own makeup. The price was out of range for my student budget though so I gravitated towards the more affordable Kate Tokyo (it was simply known as "Kate" then). Kate Tokyo doesn’t get as much attention as other Kanebo brands like Lunasol and Impress but it's like Kanebo’s chic, trendier sister! It offers the same high quality expected of a Japanese heritage brand but at a price that's on the pocket. This season, Kate Tokyo is releasing some new products and improving on their existing ones as well. Let's explore!

For The Love Of Lemongrass

For The Love Of Lemongrass

by Alexis Krauss @ BLOG - BEAUTY LIES TRUTH

It's DIY Friday and guest blogger Kristin Collins Jackson is back, this time to tell us all about the many benefits of lemongrass essential oil. Kristin shares her favorite DIY recipes incorporating lemongrass essential oil just in time for you to try them this weekend. Enjoy! Xoxo Alexis

Lemongrass essential oil is one of the many essentials in my beauty routine. While many folks may be used to seeing this ingredient in a delicious stir-fry, the healthy benefits of this tropical grass can be applied on your bod to solve your beauty woes. I'm a huge fan of using fresh lemons on my face after cleansing to get rid of pesky scars that blemishes leave behind, but squeezing a fresh lemon by hand everyday gets old real fast. Fortunately, lemongrass essential oil is just as versatile and when mixed with the right ingredients it handles dark spots like a boss!

Lemongrass is native to tropical climates like Africa, Sri Lanka and India. The essential oil is an astringent with natural brightening qualities, so you can say goodbye to lightening dark spots with harmful chemicals or hand-squeezing lemons. According to sources at Livestrong, the anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties make it excellent at warding off infections. Lemongrass is cleansing because of its antiseptic qualities — which is exactly what you want when incorporating a new ingredient into your cleansing routine.

A little bit of lemongrass goes a long way, because of those potent antiseptic and astringent properties, it can be an irritant on your skin, so be sure to mix your lemongrass with your favorite carrier oil and use in small doses.

Here are a handful of ways you can use lemongrass to brighten your day...and your skin.

1. Deodorant

It took me a while to nail down my essential oils to make a deodorant that would control sweat and odor, adding lemongrass to my natural deodorant has become, well, as essential as the oil itself.

2. Toner

Lemongrass acts as a natural preservative and lightener in my go-to homemade toner. This toner can be used after cleansing, before you moisturize, by using rose water, aloe vera, and a few drops of lemongrass essential oil. As with any new recipe, do a test patch on the inside of your arm to make sure your skin reacts well to lemongrass.

3. Brightening Body Lotion

I'm all about brightening my skin throughout my skin regimen, as long as it doesn't require any harmful chemicals. I use a combination of mango, shea, and kokum butter with my favorite carrier oils, then I add frankincense and lemongrass essential oil to keep my lotion healing my body throughout the day.

Battle of the Aloe Vera Gels: Which under P400 AVG is the best buy?

Battle of the Aloe Vera Gels: Which under P400 AVG is the best buy?

by Claire Reyes @ Articles - Project Vanity

We had potted aloe vera plants on our window sill while I was growing up. Aside from providing succulent décor, we would often use the plant itself for various skin, hair, and medicinal purposes. It was our family’s equivalent to Windex in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and hummus in You Don’t Mess with the Zohan. For us, it was the solution to burns, scratches, pimples, scars, thinning hair, and more! We would simply pluck a leaf from the plant, squeeze it on the affected area, and let it do the job. It seems that scientists have been showing interest in this miracle plant, as well. Recent studies* have shown that aloe vera and cape aloe extracts have skin-healing and barrier-strengthening properties.

FYI: In Her Element is now available in Beauty Bar stores

by Liz Lanuzo @ Articles - Project Vanity

Some of you may know that I started beauty blogging while I was in college almost ten years ago. I was a poor student in UP Manila, but I had some income from freelance writing gigs so I could buy makeup here and there. Still, I'd save up all my allowance and eat the cheapest lunch everyday just so I can shop for things to review! I started with drugstore brands but eventually worked up to pricier but better products. I remember that one of the very first "expensive" things I bought was a Prestige palette in Beauty Bar. I remember going inside the store so many times, exploring and swatching everything, before deciding on that 750-peso face and eye palette.

Want a Booty Like Kim Kardashian? You’ll Need to Follow Her Insanely Hard Leg Day Routine

Want a Booty Like Kim Kardashian? You’ll Need to Follow Her Insanely Hard Leg Day Routine

by Dave Quinn @ PEOPLE.com

Kim Kardashian West has one of the most well-known (and most photographed) bottoms in Hollywood. And according to the 36-year-old reality star’s Snapchats on Saturday, it takes a lot of work to maintain that legendary booty!

In a series of videos, the mother of two — who is expecting a third child, a girl, via a surrogate — walked her followers through a few of the exercises she does to stay fit.

“Today is major leg day,” the star explained, while wearing an all-black workout ensemble and letting her new platinum hair lay loose.

First up were hex deadlift squats using a cap barbell weight bar (or trap bar).

Next, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star launched into a cycle of weighted power sled pulls, Romanian deadlifts, and seated leg presses.

She ended her workout with glute kickbacks on a weighted leg curl machine.

RELATED PHOTOS: Kim Kardashian West’s Best Booty Moments

Fitness was never something Kardashian West was passionate until some unflattering paparazzi photos of her on vacation in Mexico inspired the star to find a whole new way to get in shape.

“I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were photoshopping them and sharpening them,” Kardashian West explained on The View in June.

The aggressive photo editing and media scrutiny came at a particularly bad time for the multifaceted mogul, who is mom to 21-month-old son Saint and daughter North, who turned 4 in June.

“I mean I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn’t worked out in 12 weeks,” she said. “I had two surgeries on my uterus … I was already not feeling like myself, and then when people were sharpening them and making them look way worse and then those were going around, I was like, ‘Okay. I’m gonna get it together.’ ”

To help, Kardashian West linked up with a bodybuilder she met on social media to formulate a better routine. Describing the new regimen, Kardashian West said, “I definitely think that you have to do the work. I get up every morning between 5:30 and 6; workout before my kids get up. I’ve been working out for an hour and a half .”

Along with her dedicated gym time, Kardashian West also “totally changed diet” after realizing a key mistake she was making.

“I was eating less thinking like, ‘Okay. I’m just not gonna eat this,’ ” she explained of her old dieting habits. “But I was eating absolutely no carbs or trying to and that’s really hard for me.”

Her new workout buddy, however, helped her solve this problem. “She’s really helped me with my meal plan to definitely add healthy carbs, vegetables. I was just not eating properly.”

Kardashian West isn’t the only member of the KarJenner clan spilling her workout secrets.

Sister Khloé Kardashian reveled the secrets of her revenge booty in a Khlo-Fit video on her app on Sept. 6 — turning the lens over to her trainer, Don Brooks and pilates instructor Shannon Nadj for the demo.

Brooks walked app subscribers through his Matrix Method, which includes four quarters, with two exercises a quarter, each done for three sets.

The first exercise in the first quarter is a basic lunge, repeated 20 times on each side. The series is then repeated on a Bosu ball, this time with only 10 reps on each side.

In the second set of the first quarter, Nadj jumps laterally into the squat position, repeating the move with 20 reps on each side. Again, the exercise is repeated on the Bosu ball.

Moving on to the second quarter, Nadj does dynamic squats for 20 reps, before repeating the exercise on the Bosu ball for an additional 20 reps.

The second set of the second quarter is jump switch lunges. Nadj jumps three times and lands in a lunge, repeating 20 times on each side. This move is also repeated on the Bosu ball for 20 reps.

Brooks’ complete workout with Kardashian is expected in a later clip.

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder Apologize After Retelling ‘Goofy’ Story About Throwing Out Birth Control

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder Apologize After Retelling ‘Goofy’ Story About Throwing Out Birth Control

by Maria Pasquini @ PEOPLE.com

On Saturday, Nikki Reed shared a statement from her and her husband Ian Somerhalder about how sorry they both were about the controversy stemming from an interview where they discussed how they decided they wanted to have a child.

“To anyone who has been affected by reproductive coercion, we are deeply sorry,” Reed, 29, and Somerhalder, 38, wrote in a joint statement on Twitter. “That is an extremely serious issue, and women’s rights is something that is incredibly important to both of us. It is something we’ve been very vocal about, and something that is very close to our hearts.”

“We never expected a lighthearted interview we did poking fun at EACH OTHER and how WE chose together to get pregnant,” they continued. “A goofy moment in Barcelona with our two best friends and the anticipation of our journey together as we went from two to three, to turn into something representing a very serious matter.“

“However, if this somehow sheds light on a topic that definitely needs mainstream attention, then we are grateful for the unintended consequence,” they added. “It’s a shame that outlets chose this as their way into a very serious discussion, as we are certainly not qualified to be the faces of this topic.”

“We are two happily married people who chose TOGETHER to have a baby. The end,” they continued. “Love, Nikki and Ian.”

In an interview with Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy Podcast, Reed and Somerhalder revealed that while vacationing in Barcelona, Spain, in 2016, he went into her bag and threw out her birth control pills – while she was watching.

“It was the beginning of the pack, so I had to pop all those suckers out,” Somerhalder said.

The couple laughed about the whole incident, going on to share that the decision to start a family was made together with their close friends so they could all hopefully raise their children together.

But some people felt that the incident was troubling.

On Friday, Reed addressed one writer’s take on the incident on Twitter.

“Dear writer. Here’s my note to you on irresponsible journalism,” she wrote, alongside a screenshot of a lengthier message addressing an “article this morning claiming my husband tried to ‘force (me) into pregnancy?!’ ”

RELATED VIDEO: Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed Expecting First Child

“When you actually listen to the podcast (which I’m sure you didn’t) you’ll hear how ‘unforced’ I felt,” wrote Reed. “Ha! Also, ‘unconsented’ bull—- is you speaking on my behalf in a story admittedly taken out of context for the purpose of stirring up drama WITHOUT my approval. ”

Continued the Twilight alum, “Don’t talk about consent to me. And lastly, how dare you try to cast a dark shadow over one of the happiest most memorable days of my life – you’re not only disrespecting me but my baby.”

“Oh, and next time you try to stand up for women by writing an article ‘about women’s rights,’ try properly conveying the way I felt,” concluded Reed. “It’s a shame that this was your way in. You have a platform, write about things that matter by using truthful stories, not gossip.”

In some earlier messages on the social media site, Reed further championed women’s rights, writing, “We should be talking about these things, but using a funny interview between married ppl & twisting it to perpetuate gossip is irresponsible.”

Reed and Somerhalder welcomed their first child, daughter Bodhi Soleil, on July 25.

The couple also talked about planning for Bodhi’s birth during the podcast, with Reed admitting that while she didn’t suffer morning sickness, she dealt with overall fears about pregnancy.

“I think the thing that plagued me the most, actually, was the medical industry,” admitted Reed. “Just all the rules and guidelines and paranoia, and all the things they put into your head about what you could possibly do wrong.”
