I’m trying to remember the last time I wore red pants. The only pair that comes to mind is from the 90s, red velvet, I think they were from the Gap. Velvet doesn’t stretch so I’m feel like they weren’t comfortable but I do think I loved the look. Why is that I’m into red pants but not a red dress?  Here’s Angela Bassett in a pair of red pants and a black one-shoulder top. Full Story

Sure, she’s dead, I buy that.

There’s no denying the all-natural beauty boom and while I couldn’t be more elated to see this movement become more mainstream, it’s admittedly hard to weed out the good from the not so good. But hey, that’s what I’m here for, and after testing a few lines over the past few months, my latest obsession is Graydon Skincare Full Story

Hey Duana, Having my first child, a daughter, in July. My wife is set on naming our daughter Taylor. She picked the name when she was very young and while she says she's open to other names, in practice, every name I suggest gets shot down. Even when she suggests another name, she ends up saying "I'm not sure I love it though," and the conversation ends. Full Story

OMGGGG WHAT DOES THIS MEANNNNN?!?!

Um. This is the second look in a row that I’ve hated on my girl Carey Mulligan. Click here for yesterday’s edition in pale blue. Now it’s pale violet. Don’t give a sh-t that it’s Oscar De La Renta. Do they do bridesmaid dresses now? Full Story

Click here for Part 1. Julie Plec giveth, and Julie Plec taketh away. I might be enjoying VD more as a bingewatch than I did watching every week.   Sometimes you can’t see the forest for the trees when there are so many cuts to black and so much going on and so many damn versions of Nina Dobrev everywhere. Full Story

Vampire Diaries Catchup, Part the First

Four episodes in, and we are beginning to see the shape of Mystic Falls and its surrounding university campuses. One of the reasons we decided to take this show in chunks a little bit more is because the crazy-twist play-by-play can be so exhausting that it’s hard to do it justice. Only when you take a look at it with a bit of distance can you really process the enormity of what these people go through on a regular basis. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 23 recap It is a great luxury and a great relief to say that I can’t really breathe. The internet is a minefield today. Between Rob Ford (if you don’t know, please google ) and the Office finale and the VD finale and the Scandal finale, I had to pick my way around very carefully. Full Story

The love is over, the show goes on

The CW upfronts happened in New York today. And the stars of one of the network’s most important shows, The Vampire Diaries, turned up together, but not. It was confirmed last week that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have ended their relationship. Needless to say, there were no group shots. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 22 recap Well, that was only a little bit creepy. I know we had twenty minutes of explanation about the veil and where it dropped and why, but aside from those nods to propriety, it all felt a little easy, didn’t it? Veil dropped. Loved ones returned. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 21 recap Elena has her humanity back, and it took Matt, who had never hurt anyone, being hurt himself, for her to realize this was all a bit much and to stop with the temper tantrums. Sorry, but that’s clearly what’s up here – Damon was the first to call her a brat, but she’s been cruising for it for a while. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 20 recap So a wee vacation from our friends in Mystic Falls to the grown-up world of New Orleans. I can say with absolute certainty that I got the flavour of the French Quarter in a way I didn’t expect to. I mean, the brass bands were somewhat expected, I guess, but the feeling of striding in and out of various establishments and knowing people there is something I’ve unconsciously associated with New Orleans, without having been there yet. Full Story
