Looking pretty is all about light in the right places: that is the philosophy behind Pixi’s new PixiGlow-inspired line for Target.

And it’s a philosophy they’ve fulfilled more than admirably. I actually love their Fairy Face Palette so much that I’ve used it daily since December and I’m already fretting about whether I’ll be able to procure a new one at Target when I’ve used it all up. I’m sure it will sell out. Keep reading »

“I think in the world of the show we see the office through Peggy’s eyes. She’s the new girl and we see her from her very first day… And we’ve watched through over 50 episodes of television her grow and become more confident and we’ve watched Don alternately shout at her and correct her and not be very nice to her but also be profoundly nice to her … I think Peggy is very important to Don. And I think you saw at the end of season three, when the firm blows up and they have to start all over again, he says ‘If you leave, I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to hire you back.’  And I think that sums up relationship that Don and Peggy have.”

– Jon Hamm talks about Don Draper’s relationship with his copywriter Peggy Olsen, seemingly shutting down any potential relationship between the two. “30 Rock” used a phrase on Thursday night that strikes me as the perfect descriptor for the relationship on “Men Men” between Peggy and Don: subordi-friendship. They’re friends, but one is subordinate to the other. (And sex is not a good idea.) [TV Fanatic]

"30 Rock" MLK Day trailer
Watch Video

Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Nick Cannon, the essence of Hugh Grant in every single movie he has ever made, and “America’s Kidz Got Singing” star Jenna Maroney have a dream. And that dream is that your butt will be in a seat on the opening night of “MLK Day.” It’s a feel-good rom-com about blacks and whites, love and heartbreak, and not having a date with whom to observe a government holiday.

It looks terrible. And thankfully, it only exists on “30 Rock.” [BuzzFeed]

Today’s Lady News: British Plastic Surgeons Say Advertising Their Procedures Should Be Banned

  • The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, a society of plastic surgeons, says what they perform are medical procedures and the procedures should not be advertised the same way clothing or cosmetics are. BAAPS also asked that annual checks be carried out on surgeons. The group said it is concerned by the increasing attitude that just anyone can perform plastic surgery, even people without a license, and believe that advertising and makeover TV shows are only furthering that reputation. Interesting. [BBC

Oh, New Hampshire. There you go, sitting around thinking, You know what we don’t have enough of? Wife beatings!

Clearly that’s the only explanation for a piece of legislation proposed by state Republicans. According to the Concord Monitor newspaper, House Bill 1581 sought to require police officers to obtain a warrant in a domestic violence case unless they witnessed the crime themselves.

So if Jane called 911 because Bob punched her in the face? (Or Bob called 911 because Jane punched him in the face?)  The cops could see the blood or bruises, but would have needed a warrant for arrest.  Keep reading »
