The Mad Men Dictionary: Defining Our Favorite Moments

Prepare for the final season by taking a look back at the best Mad Men Moments The seventh and final season of Mad Men is almost here: the premiere airs on Sunday, April 13th (well, at least the first half of the split season does). Watching Mad Men has always felt a bit different from watching other shows; there’s something…

Life Beyond Lipgloss – 03/28/14

Yahoo - it's Friday! This week at we heart this we examined the reboot of tarte's iconic Cheek Stains, shared our boatload of goodies from our The Makeup Show Haul and cleaned up with the orange-scented bath and body products from A Girl's Gotta Spa. But life is about more than beauty products, here are a few links that we…

Girls Recap: Season 3, Episode 32, Two Plane Rides

We made it through Season 3 of Girls, y’all! I if I was Hannah, I’d probably a write a raw personal essay detailing my every reaction to this season, complete with gory, overly intimate details. Luckily for you guys, I’m not Hannah, so I’ll just stick to the recapping. As a whole, it was a rich, if uneven season -…

Girls Recap: Season 3, Episode 31, I Saw You

For this Season 3 penultimate Girls recap, we turn to Morrissey and his song “We Hate it When Our Friends Become Successful” which could basically serve as the Girls theme song at the moment. There’s always been a strict hierarchy among our gang, but Adam and even Jessa are busy usurping Hannah and Marnie this week. This power imbalance is…

Girls Recap: Season 3, Episode 30, Role Play

Well, THAT ended badly, didn’t it? Just when it seemed like Hannah and Adam were finally growing towards a sweet, stable coupledom, in walks some really bad lingerie and a double dose of drama. Storms are brewing elsewhere, too: Marnie is chasing the ostensibly unavailable Desi and Shosh has had it with Jessa and Jasper. With only two episodes left,…

Girls Recap: Season 3, Episode 29, Flo

Death just keeps reaching its bony fingers into Hannah’s life: this time around, though, he’s clasping at Hannah’s grandmother, Flo. When Hannah goes home to say goodbye, she’s sucked into the tension swirling between her mom, aunts, and cousin. The perfect recipe for an uncomfortable homecoming? One part harsh marriage advice, one part minor car crash, and a generous sprinkling…

Girls Recap: Season 3, Episode 28, Incidentals

Is it just me, or does it seem like Hannah and Adam are venturing into functioning adult territory right now? It makes me feel almost maternal, a cranky Generation X-er reaching across the Millennial divide and patting their heads in pride - “Look at you two, with your real jobs and goals and communication skills.” Of course, you win some,…

Girls Recap: Season 3, Episode 27, Beach House

It was hard for me to even concentrate on what was happening on Girls this week; to be honest, I was too busy Liz Lemon-ing it and saying “I want to go to there” about Marnie’s borrowed beach house. Bikinis and outdoor cocktails are a cruel, cruel joke to those of us snowbound on the East Coast. Nevertheless, I persevered…

Girls Recap: Season 3, Episode 26, Free Snacks

To borrow a phrase from Shosh, I’m feeling pretty “je ne regret rienn-y” about watching this episode. I mean, we had a cameo from a major fashion player, dream catchers, and most importantly, SUN CHIPS. Actually I hate Sun Chips, but free snacks always taste delectable, right? I have major reservations about the awkward hook-ups between Marnie/Ray and Shosh/Parker, but…
