Luckily, for those of us who weren’t fortunate enough to be graced with Queen Bey’s presence in person at "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour", she’s releasing Beyoncé: X10.This ... Read More

Did you sit and stare blankly at a wall of your room yesterday, wondering what regular people do with their lives without Game of Thrones on Sunday nights? Yeah, me too. That’s why I ordered this bad boy, among other reasons (no spoilers), on Etsy last week to sport in honor of my favorite lady of Westeros, Ygritte.After I got TONS of great feedback, I decided to put together a list of other great handmade Game of Thrones merch made by women, for ...

After smoking through all 13 episodes of OITNB like crack, I underwent some serious “gaping-blankly-at-computer-screen” withdrawal and was in desperate need of a new easily accessible show to binge on (sadly Game of Thrones has not yet made its way to Netflix). So one afternoon while haphazardly surfing through the depressing array of TV options (you can imagine my disappointment after coming across the deceptively titled infomercial “Breaking ... Read More

In the world of HelloFlo, girls are so excited to get their period that they fake it with glittery red nail polish on a giant maxi pad in order to win the respect of their equally adolescent peers. If you’re unfamiliar, HelloFlo is a company that assembles care packages geared toward preteens that are just about to get their period. And they include the works - tampons, pads, and snacks (yes, SNACKS). In this little video, a mom lets her ... Read More

“I know that football can be really hard to understand, especially for us women, because the female eye can’t actually see spherical shapes. Side note: that’s why high heels aren’t circular,” says Lex Croucher, dripping in layers of sarcasm.
I’ve been following Lex Croucher, also known as tyrannosauruslexxx on youtube, since I was 15. I’ll admit, at first I just thought she was pretty and I’m kind of like a bird who ... Read More

Thanks to Tyra Banks and America's Next Top Model, the 11-year quest for who’s gonna be on top has been a “fierce” ride. We’ve learned to “smize” we learned what happens when you let Tyra down, and we’ve learned that true beauty doesn't only come in a 6’2-Blonde-90 pound-package.
Featuring plus-sized models, petite models, an m-to-f transgender model, a contestant with asperger syndrome, mothers, a contestant ... Read More

My inner 5-year-old is screaming. The Powerpuff Girls is coming back to TV in 2016! This is no joke. This is not a drill. Yesterday, Cartoon Network confirmed that the Emmy award-winning show will be rebooted soon, bringing back one of the network’s top grossing shows of all time. This continues the trend of resurrecting many 90s classics for new audiences - Sailor Moon, Reading Rainbow, Girl Meets World, etc.

Jim Henson’s film Labyrinth has been my favorite movie since I was seven. For 14 years I’ve been an adamant fan of the dark children’s movie staring a young Jennifer Connelly and a not-quite-so-young David Bowie. I was entranced by the playful but undeniably sinister nature of the film and still to this day watch it at least once a week.
However, I also think that exposing me to this movie at a young and primitive age ... Read More

I don’t usually turn to reality contest shows for inspirational stories because it seems that they attract contestants with one caveat and exploit it to gain ratings. Maybe I just have a tooth to grind because I had one very talented friend tryout, but without movie star looks or a heart-breaking past he had no hook to remain in the competition. Sidebar over, I found Anna Clendening’s personal triumph over her anxiety and depression to perform on ... Read More

Irene McCabey (Rachel McKeon) is an Austin punk singer whose position in the band is rapidly deteriorating, and with good reason—Homemakers opens with a scene in which she attacks their accordionist, and she seems to be fueled by the chaos which she perpetually leaves in her wake. Her bandmates are on the verge of kicking her out of the group when she receives a call that her great-grandfather has died and left her his run-down house in Pittsburgh. ... Read More
