As we stared in awe at Béyonce and those sexy denim cut-offs during her Coachella extravaganza, many of us fantasized about a world where shorts that short are actually wearable beyond the stage–especially after a certain age! The good news is, you don’t have to be in your twenties to rock that fierce short fantasy. Opt for a bulkier boyfriend cut for a little extra length without loosing the edge. Or, wear a playfully short pair with a long sweater, duster coat, or kimono to cover up any extra derriére.

We gathered up what we like to call “grown woman shorts” – and all for under $100 – so that you, too, can beat the heat like a lady and finally celebrate those gorgeous gams!

Beyoncé Knowles Carter shut Coachella down last night. Always a stellar performer and iconic inspiration, I realized one of the things I love most about the globally popular performer is her constant commitment to pushing herself. I like to think that everybody has an inner rockstar! Somewhere deep down inside, there is a more exciting, slightly exaggerated, more uninhibited side of you that is just waiting for the right occasion to be unleashed.

No we can’t all be Beyoncé but perhaps your dormant alter ego makes an appearance during karaoke, a big celebration, or a red carpet event. Either way, it’s important that we have some healthy outlet or forum to expand some aspect of ourselves. The experience changes our inner and outer perspective about ourselves, as well as what we see as possible in life. When it’s all said and done, one of life’s greatest gift treasures is personal growth.

Some extremely simple ways to release your inner Supernova may be: changing your hair (color, cut, style, or, all of it), or switching things up in your wardrobe with a new color or silhouette that you’ve never worn before. Perhaps, even experimenting with some out-of-the-box accessorizing will be just the thing. Other opportunities of exploration can come from trying new activities, enjoying new foods, and partaking in new friendships. To maximize the impact, combine them all. Whichever way you decide to stretch your capacity, do it with style and a bit of boldness.

For some, pushing yourself will become a ritual practiced daily or several times a month. For others, it will serve as a rare occurrence reserved only for very private or special occasions. Regardless of when, where, or how you decide to extend your personal margins, the practice of taking healthy risks will prove to enrich your life, providing you with fresh inspiration, exhilarating discovery, and invigorating rejuvenation. It’s okay to throw caution to the wind and live a little. You never know just what you’ll discover about yourself.

You may find that the very thing you’ve been looking for has been patiently waiting inside of you all along, to be revealed and celebrated. So go ahead… rock out! The world is waiting.

Celebs: they’re not like us. Unlike our favorite fashionistas, we won’t be wearing head-to-toe Gucci to dinner several nights this week (sad face). And we don’t have a glam squad on speed dial. When celebrities claim water is the secret to their youthful appearance, we eye roll. But there’s one thing we can do like the rich and famous, and that’s beauty and skincare, because even celebrities love a bargain.

We picked 10 drugstore beauty finds that celebrities can’t live without so that we can slay the beauty game like our favorite A-listers.

Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser ($10) – Marjorie Harvey, as her hubby explains it, “hit the lottery in the gene pool,” (accurate) and she takes extremely good care of her skin. Her favorite makeup remover: Albolene, it removes even the toughest of makeup and leaves skin super soft, she says.

Pixi by Petra Flawless & Poreless Primer ($22) and Glow Mist ($15) – So we snuck in 11 products, but that’s because Lori Harvey gives us #flawlessface with Target finds. She uses the Pixi Glow Mist for an “extra glow effect” (as if she needed any more #glowup).

L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara ($8)  – Kelly Rowland has long praised the classic mascara as her go-to, as has Kim Kardashian: “It really lifts and separates each lash,” she says. Nearly every celeb-MUA has said that they carry a tube in their arsenal.

Aquaphor Healing Ointment ($5) – We’re calling this multi-tasking product The Holy Grail of skincare. Emily Ratajkowski uses it under her eyes for a dewy effect and Zendaya’s killer cheekbones? The result of a highlight hack: “I dab Aquaphor where I want my highlight to be. Then I put my highlighter on top, and boom!”

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator ($11) – We thought the signature JLo-glow was the thing that set Jennifer Lopez apart from us mere mortals, but apparently her MUA has been sending her down the red carpet in L’Oreal liquid illuminator.

Mielle Organics Babassu & Mint Deep Conditioner ($14) – Yara Shahidi is #hairgoals, hands down. She credits the $14 Mielle Organics deep conditioner for keeping her curls hydrated, especially after too much heat styling.

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs ($9) – The thing that makes Khloe Kardashian’s legs camera-ready. Yes, please, we’ll take two.

Revlon ColorStay Brow Pencil ($7) – Ciara’s secret to a 5-minute makeup routine: perfect brows. She’s been using the Revlon eyebrow pencil for years to give her arches a “super-natural” look.

Smith’s Rosebud Salve ($7) – Beyonce has been loyal to Smith’s Rosebud Salve since ’03 Bonnie and Clyde days. Okay, well maybe not that long, but she has been using the stuff “in the blue can” as a lash and lip primer since before Blue Ivy.

L’Oreal Infallible 2-Step Lipcolor in Neverending Nutmeg ($13) – We’ve found the perfect nude lip color, thanks to Sir John, you know the MUA responsible for Beyoncé and Chrissy Teigen’s faces. Neverending Nutmeg is universally flattering and affordable. #Goals.
