Does anybody still watch “Gossip Girl”? I feel like every single person who’s on that show hates it so much and they’ve all pretty much acknowledged that the series needed to end already. So what do we spy here? Is that little Jenny Humphrey — aka Taylor Momsen — all dolled up for the finale? It seems the misery raccoon has returned to her home nest, straight off some horrid Pretty Reckless tour or other, to film one last time with Blair, Serena and LonelyBoy. And P.S., those Louboutins are crazy. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Halloween’s just around the corner, and it’s a great excuse to get totally, totally weird. Weird with your costume and your makeup, but also weird with your household decorations and party props. We’ve found 16 or the spookiest, wildest and all around weirdest Halloween decorations around. You really need a talking tree gnome and a monster pizza, don’t you? I thought so.
I tried surfing once. It didn’t end so well — I lost the surf board and almost slammed up against a bunch of rocks. Still, there’s something totally dreamy about surf culture — and especially surfer girls, who are totally badass, and strong and basically live in the ocean. And that’s why I’m really excited about Sun Bum’s line of lip balms. Packed with SPF 30 sunscreen, they protect as well as soothe, and come in a crazy delicious array of flavors, including mango, pink guava, pomegranate, coconut, key lime and their original banana (I’ve got banana on right now, and it’s making me hooooongry). Try it — it’s certainly a lot easier than getting on a surfboard. [$3.99, Sun Bum]
During last night’s presidential debate, the candidates were asked what they’d do to improve the status of women and ensure equal pay. And while President Obama discussed his work on the Lilly Ledbetter act, Mitt Romney accidentally said one of the most talked about phrases of the evening. Speaking to the crowd, he said that he once had the opportunity to put a board together, but was dismayed to see only male candidates presented. So:
“We took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. I went to a number of women’s groups and said: ‘Can you help us find folks,’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”
For whatever reason, the phrase has taken off, and now there’s a Tumblr and a Facebook page devoted to Romney’s binders, where information about the wage gap and Romney’s policies are offered up. And before the debates were even through, someone had set up an @RomneysBinder Twitter account. It currently has more than 30,000 followers. I happen to think Romney’s binder is probably just filled with pictures of Delta Burke, but maybe that’s just me? [ABC News]

Pea coats are typically done in black or navy blue, which is nice but kind of boring. If you love the pea coat shape, but want a bit of color in your life, we’ve got a slew of bright and bold options for you. Check out our picks after the jump!
Did you know French Bulldogs are total candy hoarders? Because they are. They just can’t get enough of the sweet stuff, which is why they’re given to dressing up in ridiculously inappropriate Halloween costumes just to get a Tootsie Roll or two. Here, we’ve got 12 Frenchies all dolled up in their spooky best. Enjoy!
