It’s only week two into our descent into Hell, Bachelor fans, and I don’t know about you, but I’m already starting to feel the burn. Nick, on the other hand, is already starting to feel the boobs. Grab a drink, douse yourself in Purell, and let’s get this over with. Disclaimer: The following is a […]

  • Amy - Hilarious recap, as always. Favorite quip: “Corinne excuses herself to have her nanny help her insert her NuvaRing.” You kill me! Personal opinion, the best part of the show was the bonus footage at the credits. Thanks for the amazing summary!ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - I’m praying the nanny makes a surprise appearance at some point. If she makes it to hometowns — which I’m betting she will because BOOBS — can you imagine? “Nick will be meeting my mother Lucinda, my father Patrinko, and my nanny Esmerelda who will cut his steak into tiny bites for him.”

      Appreciate your comment – and as always, you reading this crap. :) xoReplyCancel

It’s Golden Globe day, you guys, or as I think of it, SuperGlobe Sunday. (I actually just made that up like five seconds ago when I needed a post title but I like it so much I’m going to convince myself it’s what I’ve always called it). Makes sense, because I’ve long thought of this […]

  • Karen - I just saw La La Land last night and was less than impressed…give me Zac Efron singing and dancing any day :)

    Also, agree with Kim Grady – The Crown was BORING….sorryReplyCancel

If you read the blog it’s no secret that for the past few years I’ve been in a major battle with aging, and it’s been ugly. Not so much the battle (because I’m a gracious loser), but the sags, bags, and wrinkles that make me literally gasp each morning when I see myself in the […]

  • Arlene lowery - How often should I use lash boost once I am happy with the lash growthReplyCancel

    • Michelle - I still use it nightly, but I suppose you could go every other night or a few times a week? The life cycle of an eyelash is like 3 months, so those lush new lashes will eventually fall out.ReplyCancel

  • Rande Baker - Skeptical at first…..been using for a month….the difference is amazing!!!! No longer skeptical…..Convinced!!!! Love this product!!!! I recommend😍😍ReplyCancel

  • Ada - Awful. My upper eyelids became severely irritated, dry and my lashes fell out. I have a patch of missing eye lashes on both eyes. Dissatisfied and dissapointed does not even begin to explain my thoughts on this product. Never again.ReplyCancel

Q: What do dolphins, Ariel the mermaid, and Olivia Pope have in common? A: strength B: beauty C: free-spiritedness D: an addiction to fine any Cabernet E: three things most girls who sell their souls to ABC wish they could be D (again). all of the above I think the answer is obvious. D. For […]

  • Lucia P. - “Fiery former orphan” may, in fact, be one of the funniest things you wrote this year. Lol. Plus hooray that you will be re-capping the Bachelor!! Nick makes my skin crawl, but I’ll soldier on because I have to watch if you will be breaking it down later!

    Happy New Year!ReplyCancel

To be clear, the ‘sort of’ goes with the ‘stylish’ part of the title of this post. The ‘suddenly’ is totally and 100% sudden. Because I’ve never been all that stylish, in case you need it spelled out for you. As some (12) of you might remember, two months ago I spontaneously got a job […]

  • Snarkfest - I am not being snarky or sarcastic when I tell you that YOU NEED TO GIVE ME A FULL LIST OF WHAT I NEED TO WEAR. I need to fly to where you are and have you help me. My jeans have sparkly pockets. For the love of all that is holy, PM me and tell me what brands and what styles I need.ReplyCancel

Welcome back! It’s great to see you again! Oh, wait. I wasn’t talking to you, although as always it is great to see you. I was talking to the Friday Favorites, which if you’ve been paying attention know have been MIA for the past month. Or two. (You also know that it isn’t unusual for […]

  • NinaN - Well I guess I’m heading into work early today so I have time to check Pier 1 for that reed diffuser.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - They’re on sale 2 for $25. Trust me, get two. They have a big ol’ stopper so you can close it up if you don’t use it all (which is unlikely). And there’s other good scents so you could mix it up, I just happen to love the Holiday Forest. :)ReplyCancel

Sorry for the delay, you guys. It’s taken me a full 48 hours to even sit down with my laptop and try to type coherent thoughts about the four part Gilmore-palooza. My mind has been processing slower than my digestive system working on all that Velveeta I consumed on Thursday and Friday. Why? Because I […]

  • Julia - Your post popped up in my email this morning before I had finished the final episode, so I had to wait to read it until just now. I agree with most of your points–I thought the same thing about the public pool! Those two would never be out there. I did cringe a bit at the negative things they were saying about the other citizens while at the pool–seemed particularly mean. I actually hated the part with the “Brigade” (I always found the whole thing with Logan and his friends obnoxious) and how they just have copious amounts of money to burn. As far as Rory’s vagabond lifestyle, I just figured her grandfather left her a ton of money. That’s why I was wondering why Lorelai needed to ask her mom for money to expand?
    The part that made me LOL was the scene in the town meeting about the gay pride parade and how everyone was trying to get Taylor to admit that he was, in fact, gay.
    I was excited to watch this, and glad that I did, but it just wasn’t the same as the original series. It probably would have been better if I could’ve watched this with my BFF but she lives in another city…
    Thanks for the recap! (As always!)ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Totally agree that it didn’t live up to the original series, but I think they were trying to cram so much STORY and little Stars Hollow idiosyncrasies in. However, having said that, there is a LOT in the original series that is ridiculous and bugs me … and that I ultimately forgive because overall I love it (see: family reference above). 😛
      Yes! I agree that the mean girl comments were unnecessary! Hated that they felt the need to put that in. As for the LADB, agree that it’s obnoxious, but I just go with it (remember Rory’s insane British birthday party for Logan? SO over the top, but still so fabulous to imagine throwing!).
      OMG – the discussion about the gay pride parade was fabulous!! Love the token gay townie, and of course, the wink wink comments re: Taylor. Thanks for reminding me about that!
      Thanks for leaving such a fun comment! Love to e-chat with you!! :)ReplyCancel

      • Julia - Oh, one more thing: I had hoped that it would end with Jess and Rory starting back up (although, I was NEVER Team Jess) but the pregnancy thing kind of ruined that. I suppose Jess could be a selfless guy and help Rory raise Logan’s baby… I totally agree about Luke’s toupee, too! Com’on. OKay, I do have one more comment, why does Scott Patterson seem so uncomfortable whenever he’s not playing Luke? I love his character but his interviews are so terrible and awkward!ReplyCancel

  • Karen - I am a true GG fan – loved the series when it played, re-watched with my daughter all over again. We watched all episodes of the revival in one evening. I agree it was not as good as the series – but who was expecting that? I still enjoyed most of it (the musical story line was my least favourite – went on way too long).
    I totally agree will all your points in your recap. The pool? weird… Lane’s Dad?? what! why?. Lorelei’s wardrobe – awful! Emily’s jeans – awesome. Rory’s treatment of Paul?…Love Jess’s farewell look of yearning..(but I have always been #TeamJess). And Luke’s speech in the kitchen – the best!
    Question – Baby daddy – Logan or NYC one night stand guy?
    Thanks for the recap – you do the best summaries !ReplyCancel

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas … and I love it. That’s right. I’m one of those freaky, enthusiastic people who loves Christmas and who gets judged and ridiculed for it by visibly showing my excitement (and endorsing retailers for doing the same) anytime before the day my belly is stuffed full of tryptophan and regret. […]

  • Snarkfest - I drove by a house Saturday night with full Christmas lights blazing and I thought to myself: “TOO DAMNED EARLY!!” but after reading this post, I’m thinking we DO need a little Christmas to deaden all the bad that’s come from this election. I need bright and cheery. Thank you, my friend,ReplyCancel
