If you've ever suffered from buyer's remorse after purchasing a ridiculously expensive, yet oh-so-adorable pair of shoes or another LBD, let us just say—we completely understand. But, today is National Splurge Day, and that means everything you buy is completely justified and basically necessary. Take that, credit card bills! In honor of what is one of our favorite holidays of the year, the OK! Editors have shared the splurges that hurt their wallets but made their hearts happy, which is what really matters, right? OK! News: Who Wore It Better? Kylie Jenner or Shay Mitchell? "Every once in a while, I randomly decide I need to buy myself something super expensive. I can honestly remember every single time I've gone retail crazy. Last week I stopped in Kenneth Cole, turned into Carrie Bradshaw, and bought myself a pair of shoes—I'm not sure I want to admit how much I paid for. They're so gorge, so I totally don't regret it. The perfect addition to my closet." —Victoria, Editorial Assistant OK! News: What Kim Kardashian Can Do to Lose the Baby Weight "I'm splurging on an upcoming trip to the California coast with my bestie — it's totally breaking my bank account but it's totally worth it." —Emily, Social Media Manager OK! Exclusive: Dance Moms' Melissa Says She's The Nice Mom "I bought this beautiful, vintage, beaded top with scalloped edges and sequin trim for NYE one year. I basically had just graduated college and already owed my life in student loans, but I didn't care—this gem (that cost $350) was worth it. Not only do I still have it, but I still love wearing it!" —Kelli, Fashion and Beauty Editor Photos: The Best Beauty Products for Summer "I bought Justin Timberlake and Jay Z tickets this summer. It is a ridiculous price for a concert ticket but then you think, 'well it is JT and Jay Z and at Yankee Stadium, sooo once in a lifetime?' I haven't been to the show yet but I already know it's worth it. " —Lea, Video Editor OK! News: Jay-Z Announces New Music "I spent $350 on a haircut one time. But it's ok...it was for my birthday!" —Nicole, Photo Editor OK! News: How An OK! Editor Got Hair Like Blake Lively "I had been wanting a Chanel bag since high school and I finally got up the courage (and sort of the funds) to buy it about a year ago when my friend was working a Chanel sample sale. I purchased the little black one with the C's. Now I only really use the bag when I go have a fancy occasion, but considering I have 5 weddings coming up this summer, I know I'm getting my money's worth." —Haley, Entertainment Editor Watch: Gretchen Rossi Opens Up About Friendship With Alexis Bellino "My biggest splurge ever was my wedding dress. I've always loved, loved, loved Monique Lhuillier's designs so when I got married I knew I had to wear one of her wedding dresses. I worked my tail off to pay for it but six years later I still think it was worth it!" —Kelly, Contributing Writer Photos: Gorgeous Pics From Tamra Barney's Wedding What are some things you've splurged on? Did you regret the purchase or was it totally worth it? Tweet us @OKMagazine and tell us the details! Photo credit: Getty, Kenneth Cole
Looking for a little somethin' somethin' to shake up this work day? Tuesdays can be a little slow, especially when it's summer and you'd rather be hanging at the beach than in your cube. Listen to these four new pop songs to get your energy back, then vote on your fave! OK! News: Stream a playlist of the best Jay-Z songs ever before his new album hits! You may remember her from her middle finger at the Super Bowl or that inescapable song "Paper Planes," but if that's all you know about M.I.A. prepare to enjoy her new song "Bring the Noize." It's a kinetic, crazy little item that will surely be remixed very much in the months to come. Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice has a fizzy, happy summer song, "Gold." It should be played an outdoor bar while you sip something fruity. You will be singing along to the chorus before the three minutes are up. John Mayer released a new slow jam called "Paper Doll," a very chill Sunday afternoon in a hammock kind of tune. The best part for me, so far, is this bizarre music video. You must see to believe. The man is twisted. Fifth Harmony is a girl group that formed from the X Factor, and their first song is a contender, along with "Since U Been Gone," for most killer break-up song. Are you in need? Get ready to crank it up. poll by twiigs.com What do you think of these songs? Which is your type of music? Do you think you'll be playing any of them all summer long?

With its record-breaking haul over the weekend, we’re not likely going to stop hearing about the “Man of Steel” sequel or Warner Bros.’ plans for the DC cinematic universe. As part of the reboot’s victory lap, writer David S. Goyer stopped by for a chat with Empire to clarify where things stand with the studio’s game plan. During his interview on the magazine’s podcast, Goyer gave credence to the long-standing speculation that the Zack Snyder-helmed film is acting not only as a reboot for the once-ailing franchise but also a reset-button on the rest of the DC cinematic universe as a whole, saying the film “would be the starting point for introducing other characters and ultimately, obviously Warner Brothers hopes there will be a 'Justice League' film and perhaps you might start seeing other characters appearing in each other’s films. I think in some ways they’re interested in going perhaps the opposite direction that Marvel has done which may be...
