Maybe She’s Born With It, Maybe It’s Instagram

The other day I was walking down the street, when I overheard two young girls who were walking in front of me, talking about boys. “So do you like Hudson, or Brannan more?” “Hudson, I think.” “Really?!

At Least Justin Bieber Will Never Be President

Last week’s publicized March 6th deposition of Justin Bieber (who was being questioned about an assault case involving his bodyguard and a photographer) went viral, collecting millions of views.

The period costumes are breathtaking, the dynamic between classes is intriguing, your girlfriend is making you, and it’s an intimate look at all the working cogs at the estate of an Earl during the social and economic shift occurring in 1920s Europe.

Zooey Deschanel’s character in New Girl is appealing for lots of reasons. She’s cute as a button. She lives in a bomb-ass loft in LA and is the den mother to several attractive roommates. She crafts. She bakes. She crochets. Her bangs are full and shiny like a fine mink coat. If Pinterest was a […]
