router.get('/edit-profile', function(req, res, next) {
  res.render('accounts/edit-profile', { message: req.flash('success')});

router.post('/edit-profile', function(req, res, next) {
  User.findOne({ _id: req.user._id }, function(err, user) {

    if (err) return next(err);

    if (req.body.name) user.profile.name = req.body.name;
    if (req.body.address) user.address = req.body.address;
